About Elise

I have lived in San Antonio for most of my life and have been in all forms of the real estate business for more than 30 years. I really enjoy meeting my Vacation Renters and have added many to my list of friends. Please give me a call if you have any questions regarding these Units or the San Antonio area in general.

Why Elise chose San Antonio

We bought this property becaus it is located in a stable family neighborhood and yet it is close to freeways, shopping, restaurants and the airport. It is such a handy location.

What makes this house unique

There is a nice yard with large oak trees where you can enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The location and owners were great and Elsie and John were readily available to answer any questions about the house and the San Antonio area. I would highly recommend the property to vacationers and folks looking for a short term housing solution. The house is convenient to the 410 bypass, Walmart, HEB, restaurants, and the San Antonio Greenway (1 mile). The airport is only 5 minutes away.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cactus Cottage for an extended time where we found the accommodations clean, comfortable, quiet and private. The cottage has everything you need for your stay including washers and dryers for resident's use. The neighborhood is lovely and the property well maintained. You have easy access to highways, airport, restaurants, grocery store and shopping malls. The hosts were quick to respond to all communications. I would stay here again.

Convenient, Clean, & Accomodating

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of renting this place for six weeks to use as my base of operations while I travelled back and forth between home and San Antonio. It had all the conveniences of home, including free Wi-Fi. Located close to the airport, and within a couple of miles of shopping, dining and other amenities, this was perfect for me. The property is well maintained, all appliances were in good, working order, and I managed to stay cool during the hottest period of the year. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice quiet home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in San Antonio and this home help make our visit a success. The interior of the home was slightly different from the pictures advertized, but it was equipped with comfort in mind. Both Elise and John made themselves available and help us with all of our concerns.We really enjoyed the location of this home because the neighborhood was so quiet and it had a excellent park near by for walking our dog. We will definitely stay here when we return to San Antonio. Thanks again, John And Shirley visiting from Canada

Excellent stay at this rental in San Antonio.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this rental property for his mother's funeral. I must say that it was immaculate! The property manager was courteous and prompt with a minor plumbing issue. Their description was accurate. Discovered the nearby greenway hiking/biking trail at Salado Creek. Convenient to everything including the Los Patios meeting center. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a charming home away from home!
