Beautiful Contemporary Modern River Retreat on 1.5 acres - surrounded by park land on the original San Antonio River & walking distance to the World Heritage Site San Antonio Mission San Jose.
Enjoy a unique getaway at this secluded and peaceful San Antonio property. Situated in the heart of the Mission district and on one and a half tree shaded acres, this contemporary show place has all of the amenities including flat screen HDTV's, two king & two queen beds. Relax by the full size swimming pool in the Texas sunshine (even in the winter as the pool is heated). Tour the World Heritage Site San Antonio Missions from the property by foot, bicycle or car and enjoy local restaurants at one of America's favorite vacation destinations.
The home is the architecturally designed "dream home" of a local real estate developer. We purchased the property from the family in 2002. After extensive interior remodeling, Casa Mission Rio is now a modern showplace.
Many of our guests say they find the property so peaceful & enjoyable that they just stay "home" for much of their visit.
The property & Mission San Jose are 5 miles south of downtown & the Alamo; this area is called "Southtown." Southtown is where the arts district is & many great new restaurants are locating.

My family stayed at this home and we were very comfortable & secure. Everything was great the home was exactly as described! The home owner was very thorough in explaining how everything worked in the house instructions. We fully enjoyed the pool every day after visiting the sites in and around San Antonio. The home was perfect as a home base to day trip in the hill country then come back to the pool and house. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit San Antonio and/or the hill country.
Great experience with great support and attention from the owners. Lovely experience
Casa Mission Rio is a magnificent property with everything that the traveler might need. We used it for business / pleasure purposes and the house was the ideal place to retreat after a busy day of work. The house is very spacious, equipt to meet all needs while furnitured and detailed with a warm contemporary touch. Because of the house layout, most of the rooms connect to the beautiful yard and pool area with easy access. The attention to details permiates throughout the entire property. The property grounds are highly manicured, where a beautiful pool, surrounded by an open lawn and a tree house are a few of the many amenities that can be enjoyed. The property is secluded enough to shield it from noise and neighbors, perfect for privacy and relaxation; while minutes away from neighboring historical Missions and the San Antonio downtown where there is plenty of action. The owners are beyond gracious and were so helpful throughout our stay. Casa Mission rocks!
This is a beautiful property which we enjoyed for a month! Tucked away in a quiet little corner, you're 15 minutes away from downtown and a less than an hour away from any of the major theme parks. The main house has a very modern flair and great art work throughout the rooms. Appliances are well maintained and like new!
We mostly did a lot of hiking and other outdoor activities, as well as biked the river walk/trail and visited the Mission Trail (the San Jose mission is a 15 minute walk away!). After being out for most of the day, it was a pleasure to get back to the house and take a dip in the pool and BBQ! On the few days when we felt lazy, we'd set up in the game room and watch movies and play table tennis. We had an awesome 4th of July here!
The back yard is large enough to camp out, if you want, and the tree fort is a kid's dream -come-true. We had a few lunches up there among the gently rustling branches of the majestic pecan tree. Oh, and speaking of pecan trees, the pool is shaded by its own gigantic pecan tree, so you can soak in the pool the whole day and not worry about sunburn!
There's a guest room (I referred to it as the pool house, it has its own kitchenette with a stove, fridge, microwave, and its own bathroom) attached to the carport/garage that was great for my parents, who visited us on the weekends.
The property owners and neighbors were friendly and helpful. If you need anything during your stay they are more than happy to help you! We'll make sure and try to stay here again whenever we get the chance!
My family rented the house for a week away in San Antonio and could not have been more delighted with the property. The yard is large and inviting and fun for kids and adults alike. The back yard is literally big enough for a baseball field! Breakfast in the tree house and swimming in the afternoons made for a memorable trip. The house is very convenient to all parts of San Antonio. The missions are walking distance. The owners were easy to work with and helpful. The house is really great and has everything you need. The game room is a hit too! We have been to San Antonio on many occassions and this trip was tops because of the house. Beats the multiple hotel rooms any day of the week!
My family and I (6 adults and 2 small children) stayed in this home for a week while celebrating my brother's graduation from basic training. Although it was a 20min drive to Lackland, it was worth it!! My brother was grateful that we didn't spend his time off base in a hotel room, but that we had a home to relax in. San Antonio is pretty easy to get around so we were able to enjoy it's amenities, but this beautiful clean and well-maintained home tucked away in the San Juan Mission allowed us to enjoy our family time together in solitude.
The home is very close to bike trails and playgrounds, so we were able to take runs and play with the kids. San Antonio is working on a gorgeous bike trail that follows the river all the way through the city, and at this home you are only minutes off the trail!
It comes highly recommended as the owners had great open communication before and during our stay making our visit relaxing. It's a beautiful home and property with an open concept that allowed us to swim every morning and afternoon and had a beautiful kitchen with all that is needed to cook and eat in.
One thing we thought interesting is that the master bedroom has no doors. It is at the end of the L-shaped home, but doesn't have a door. It seemed odd the first day, but despite all the people (and toddler) in the house, it was still a quiet retreat for those using it. This didn't pose a problem, just something that caught us off guard.
Other perks: Free Wi-Fi, bath and beach towels, hair dryers, and laundry
Property is on the Mission Hike & Bike Trail which connects the Missions that comprise the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park
