Tobin Hill Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This Tobin Hill Townhome was built in 2007 and provides modern accommodations in one of San Antonio's charming, revitalized downtown neighborhoods. It is perfect for a romantic getaway, a business trip or a fun filled vacation in the 'Alamo City.'

Located less than 2 miles from the Alamo and our famous Riverwalk, it is near Methodist Metropolitan Hospital and Trinity University. Tobin Hill Townhome offers a great central location to tour our wonderful city. Sightseeing, dining, shopping and strolling along the Riverwalk are all a short trolley ride away.

The recently expanded Riverwalk, now extends north to the Pearl Brewery. You can access the riverwalk less than 1/2 mile from the townhome and walk/bike or take a river taxi to the center of downtown. This new addition passes the San Antonio Museum of Art. Come see Donald Lipski's F.I.S.H., an art installation featuring 25 glowing sunfish suspended from a bridge over the well known waterway!

Rent a bicycle and tour the Riverwalk and city on wheels! Check the internet for more information on the city's newest attraction for tourists 'B Cycles.' A fun suggestion - go to the Pearl Brewery Farmer's Market on Saturday/Sunday morning (9am-1pm) and rent a bike from that location.

Enjoy a choice of many different cuisines in nearby restaurants or if you prefer, cook your own specialty in our fully equipped kitchen.

Let Tobin Hill Townhome be your place to stay in S.A.!

About Roger and Kathy Hewlett

The year 2008 was a big one for us - we retired, sold our home in the hill country near San Antonio and moved into our motorhome! We are currently traveling around the United States.

Roger and Kathy Hewlett purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Roger and Kathy Hewlett chose San Antonio

We have rented several VRBO properties for family vacations and feel it is not only economical but the best way to stay and have fun together. We bought the townhome so others could enjoy our wonderful city in a great 'home away from home.'

What makes this townhome unique

The Tobin Hill neighborhood is close to downtown San Antonio and the famous Riverwalk with easy access to the airport and other attractions around the city. Visit San Antonio year round and see why it is the #1 tourist city in Texas!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a wonderful, relaxing home. We have stayed in homes in many places from San Francisco to Albequerque, and from Paris to Amsterdam. This lovely home is a definite favorite we will have to come back to again and again. There is just such a warm, homey feel and the location is excellent for visiting this great city of many moods. Thank you for creating such a great space for travelers.

Charming, lots of character

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I decided on this townhome because of the excellent reviews and we liked the charm of the place. Kind of felt like I never left home it was so perfect. So we were in San Antonio for my nephews graduation from the Air Force. The location was perfect, seemed to be right in the middle of everything we wanted to see and do. The neighborhood is awesome, lots of old mansions going through renovation.

When we arrived the instructions were simple and easy to follow. Every comfort of home was at our feet. The owners care about the comfort of their visitors which is apparent from the cleanliness and amnenties.

Thank you for allowing my family and I to enjoy your home. I would recommend this charmful townhome to anyone😊😊😊

Great rental property

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy with our stay at Tobin Hill. I would highly recommend this property to anybody visiting San Antonio. It is in a great location close to anywhere you want to go. It is about one mile to the riverwalk. It is walkable if you like to walk. The owners did a great job of having material at the property to recommend places to eat and visit.

Great place for family trip

  • 5 of 5

Had a very nice stay with our family of five (all adults). Extremely well-stocked kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and convenient to the freeway and Riverwalk. Everything is well maintained and as pictured in the photos. Nice big dining room table for family meals (some other homes in this price range didn't offer this). Kathleen was extremely responsive and helpful.

Very nice townhome & location

  • 5 of 5

We met our son & daughter-in-law (they live in Chile) for 3 nights in San Antonio, 3 nights in Austin and 2 nights in Dallas. Tobin Hill Townhome was a last minute pick as my son was flying standby. Kathleen was super helpful in getting us taken care of.

The home is awesome, with comfortable beds and a great kitchen. It was also nice to have our own garage. The location was perfect for us as we are all walkers. The north part of the riverwalk is a half mile away, and two days we walked it twice. We used Uber a couple of times when we were going very far, and those trips worked out great. We loved spending time at the riverwalk with all the great restaurants, plus we discovered some neat "dive bars". We all agreed this was a super place to stay and we highly recommend it.
