About the property

1st level duplex residence, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Experience San Antonio as a local! We have one of the more unique vacation rentals you’ll find, and in a great location. Our vacation rental occupies the entire first floor of our large 1925 duplex. Your friends and family can spread out in over 1900 interior square feet plus an expansive 10 x 42 covered veranda with outdoor dining. This comfortable space invokes a feeling of being in a quaint cottage. Simply furnished with an array of finds and simple antiques, our goal was to create an interesting, clean and comfortable spot for your stay in San Antonio. Sit back, relax and kick your feet up on the coffee table.

The entire space overlooks the lush yard with pool and spa. Feel free to treat yourself and family to backyard Texas BBQ and beat the heat in the pool. The pool is seasonal; however the hot tub is available year around.

There are two dining areas and a nicely equipped kitchen. You’ll find plenty of utensils, dishes, basic pots and pans, dishwasher, ice maker, everything you need.

There are two bedrooms each with a TV, private bath with a walk in shower, fresh towels and linens. Each offer a spacious closet and ceiling fan, The Junior bedroom has a queen size bed while the master bedroom includes a king size bed, separate sitting room, larger bath with a washer and dryer.

This residence is ideal for up to four people, sometimes over if ‘sofa camping is acceptable. Childs Pak N Play available.

Our unique duplex is large in scale and was designed by George Rodney Willis, a lead draftsman for Frank Lloyd Wright at the turn of 20th Century. Later in his career Mr. Willis designed many fine homes and significant buildings here in San Antonio. Comprising of two suites, we live in Suite 2, which is the upstairs residence.

We are located just off of Broadway in the Museum district of Midtown. We're in wonderful small neighborhood rich in history and interesting architecture of the early 20th century. Surrounded by the historic Fort Sam Houston you can enjoy views of the Victorian era officer’s homes and a walk around the block you’ll see horses grazing in pasture. It really is an amazing view, to be only 1 mile from downtown.

3 blocks away you’ll find Brackenridge Park and Golf Course. Walking paths lead you to North through Brackenridge Park, The San Antonio Zoo and more. A few blocks South and you’ll find The Pearl, a culinary hub and select shops. Saturday mornings at the Pearl offers a fun and trendy Farmer’s Market as well. You’ll find the North end of the Riverwalk Museum Reach extension at the rear of this complex. Bicycles can be rented from several private businesses or our city’s new B-Cycle program.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the place. It was in a quite neighborhood but still very close to everything you might want to do in San Antonio. Our kids 9 & 6 loved being able to come back in the afternoon and just hang by the pool. The back yard was beautiful and private. The kitchen was adequate and the bedrooms were comfortable. There was enough space for everyone to take time along or have dinner as a family. Brent was helpful and very nice. We would recommend this place to couples or families.

Beautiful home in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travel a few times a year with another couple. The house was perfect for us. We felt very comfortable with our own bathrooms and separate living spaces. The owner Brent was so hospitable we felt at home the minute we walked in. The home is arranged and decorated beautifully. We rented a car so we were able to go to the recommended restaurants Brent shared with us. The back yard was beautiful. We didn't get in the pool much but it was very nice to have available if we wanted to use it. I would recommend this property for people who like to visit the city but also like a quiet place to relax in. My only concern is that someone would take advantage of Brent's kindness and trusting nature. Brent thank you for opening your beautiful home to us!

Home from Home in San Antonio!

  • 5 of 5

I stay here twice a year for a couple of weeks each time - an ideal spot in SATx. The house is super-comfortable and welcoming and is close to everything one needs - Just a 5 minute walk away to join the San Antonio river walk which has transformed the city over the past decade. Quiet safe treed street with easy parking. The back terrace and pool area are peaceful places to pass time! Best food market, bakery and restaurants in town is within a few minutes drive plus The Pearl Brewery development with interesting shops and eateries. Airport is 12min away, The Y gym 4 min drive and 2 cross fit studios both walkable. Definitely recommend this place to stay!

We are located at the end of a quiet street literally in the backyards of Fort Sam Houston's Historic officers homes. While just over a mile to the infamous Alamo, enjoy a walk around the block at see horses grazing in pasture on Fort Sam's park like grounds. We're in wonderful small neighborhood rich in history and interesting architecture of the early 20th century. We feel we have established an urban oasis in the city.

This great central location just off Broadway is about two miles north of the Alamo. We overlook Fort Sam's historic officer quarters and San Antonio skyline. The location offers easy access to downtown, Fort Sam Houston, museums, Alamo Heights, great shopping and more. Easy highway access in any direction.
