Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 maximum)

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.

Charming and Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent six days at this property. We loved it! The property is very private--it's at the end of a dead end street and you can't see any neighbors. The pool is large and surrounded by a paver patio; there is a small lanai-type area with a gas grill just off the kitchen and next to the pool. The contemporary-style house has four bedrooms including a beautiful master suite with a great master bathroom. One of the garage bays is a game room with a TV and a ping-pong table; there is also a small studio apartment attached to the garage. The property is close to the river walk/mission trail area (Mission San Jose is easily within walking distance). We walked along the river one day, went for an early morning run along the river another day, and kayaked the river on a third day! The property is less than six miles from the Alamo so it is easy to get to downtown. There is a washer/dryer and a dish washer, so it is easy to live in the house as if you are home. Overall, we loved our stay and greatly appreciate the owner for putting together such an enjoyable rental property. It's features and location are amazing.

Relaxing place to come home to!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful home for 5 weeks while I had a temporary work project in San Antonio. I brought my wife and 2 adult daughters and a co-worker used the private suite located across from the carport.

The master suite was fantastic with a comfortable king sized bed, large walk in closet, separate toilet, large shower with many shower heads, deep soaking tub, double sinks, office desk, tv and large bright windows. My daughters enjoyed their decent sized rooms with desks. They had plenty of room in their shared double sink, separate toilet bathroom. The laundry room is large, plenty of room for folding. The washer and dryer were small apartment size, but worked well.

The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of dishes, etc..and has a blender and vegetable steamer. And it has large unique refrigerator/freezer drawers. We paid extra to heat the pool and it was well worth it in February.

The home is very bright with many large windows. The grounds are completely private and the neighbours are quiet. The neighbourhood is safe and lovely with homes with acreages. We bought a couple of bikes on Craigslist and donated them when we left. Due to our 5 week visit, this was much cheaper than renting from a bike shop or using the city's bike share program (which was a 15 minute walk away). The Bike trails on the river are excellent and the Missions were all under a 30 minute bike ride away.

The host was a great communicator and responded immediately to all of our questions or concerns.

The only negative to this location is the traffic noise from SE Military Drive. You can barely hear the noise when inside. But can be quite loud during evening rush hour by the pool. We rectified this by playing music or using headphones when lounging outside. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this home.

A perfect place for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

There is so much to love about this vacation house. First off the location is great...close to downtown and everything you would need but felt so private as well. We used the pool everyday and the beds were very comfortable. Don't look any further if you want an awesome house in San Antonio. Eric was so great to deal with.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great shape and very clean. Don't be afraid to rent this one. Our family had a lot of fun and wonderful memory's staying in the house together. We would diffently stay here again if we were going to San Antonio. Eric was very attentive and called to make sure we found our way okay and see if we needed anything. Thanks Eric. The only change I would make is to put a privacy door on the master bedroom. Some people may like this but it wasn't for me.

A contemporary oasis on a large, unexpected, impeccable piece of property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The house is terrific, and the property couldn't be more impressive. Stunning lawn, plenty of shade so everyone can be outside all day long, and a great pool. It's only 15 minutes or so into downtown, which was incredibly convenient, and yet we felt as though we were someplace remote when we were at the house. I highly, highly recommend this property.
