*Note 1: If you want to have the pool heated during the winter and spring in the advertised "no pool heat rates", contact me for the cost of adding pool heat to your price.

Truly your home away from home while visiting San Antonio!

Traveler Tip #1: Save on your airline tickets: If coming by air to San Antonio, please also price flying to Austin, Texas and going back to Austin when leaving, renting a car in Austin and driving to San Antonio. Many of my Guests who have done this have told me they save an average of $150.00 per person. So if you are traveling as a group of 8 persons you can save about $1200.00 which could be applied to cover a huge amount of the cost of my rental to you for your trip. Built in savings like that is truly a good thing!

Traveler Tip #2: Save on car rentals: When renting a car, make an early reservation and watch the prices about every ten days, if your price goes down, cancel the first reservation and make a new one. Car and truck rental prices are determined on the futures market, and has nothing to do with the day you reserve. Futures markets change often and so thus do the prices of their cars to you.

About Jim Smith, CTA, Owner

Owner Jim Smith moved to San Antonio in 2004 from Washington, DC where he spent most of his adult career as a Realtor, Home Builder, and later as a Building and Zoning Code Consultant. In the earlier years Jim spent his free time as a Special Olympics County Coordinator in Maryland (7 years) where he set up a county Special Olympics program which almost five hundred Special Olympians spread around 35 schools. Later, he spent his free time as a community activist, being the President or Board or Committee Member of scores of community interest groups including his civic association, and also served on several Washington, DC Mayoral Commissions including the Building Code Advisory Board (8 years) and the Recreational Trails Commission which decided where to spend public transportation funds for recreational trails in Washington, DC (6 years). The fast pace and hypertension of Washington, DC was too much to bear, so Jim transplanted himself to San Antonio, Texas. In San Antonio, Jim has remodeled six properties, including his home and five other rental properties that are fully furnished. The furniture and interiors were selected for each home by Jim and his sister, Jan, and the results are fine rental accommodation that are reasonable in cost. Jim's full time job is making Guests comfortable, and helping them navigate San Antonio to its many attractions and restaurants. This adventure for Jim has been anything but a progression for retirement, having 14 bathrooms, 19 bedrooms, 26 beds, six sleep sofas, six kitchens, four pools and five hot tubs keeps him totally busy 24/7.

Jim is a Certified Tourist Ambassador and is extremely knowledgeable about San Antonio and its colorful history

In spite of all the hard work, it is indeed a reward to finally settle down in the same city as his lovely sister, Jan, and her husband, David. Jim hopes that all of you who are estranged from your loved ones, living in remote parts, can come together soon and enjoy your loving families!

Jim Smith, CTA, Owner purchased this house in 2005

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The home has a very nice layout. The three main bedrooms are separated from the main living area which was very nice at nap time. The owner just finished putting in a new game room which was a hit with everyone. Any minor concerns that we had were promptly handled by the owner. Very nice place to stay.

Beware it smells

  • 1 of 5

Our bad experience at staying in this place started immediately upon walking in the garage. There was an intense chemical oder that, as we soon discovered, carried into the home. However, there was not only the intense chemical oder in the house but also the smell of mold - as if a window had not been opened for 30 years. We rented the home especially because of the heated pool but the pool heater did not work. The pool was filthy- leaves, bugs and garbage floating in it. The owner said his pool cleaning service would be cleaning it, but they never showed and it remained dirty our entire stay. My son's bed had a big blood stain on it. A big cockroach visited his bedroom one morning, he squashed it before us leaving

but didn't pick it up. When we got home in the evening it was mysteriously gone (hmmm..who was in the home during the day to clean it up?). My daughters slept on the pull out couches but complained consistently of the urine smell on them. The bathrooms are very, very dated and smell like it. The blue bathroom's toilet was stained black at the base of it. Fixtures were rusted and falling apart. Screens were out of the windows. Ferral cats were everywhere outside and the smell of them prevented us from sitting by the pool. Yes, we should have left this home upon immediately arriving but we arrived very late and were waking early to see our son graduate from BMT. And that was our purpose for the weekend - to spend as much time with our son as possible and not searching out for an alternative place to stay. We would have, however, rather stayed at our son's barracks than this place any day.

Everything as Promised

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable HomeAway stay in San Antonio and found the home to be large and comfortable. Jim is a very attentive owner and provided everything as promised. Having the pool available made the stay even more enjoyable. We would not hesitate to rent this home again.

I would not recommend this property to ANYONE!

  • 1 of 5

I am cutting and pasting the email I sent to the owner adter staying one night at this property minus my email address as HomeAway asked me to remove it. It needs to be said, the owner apologized and promised us he would be refunding all but the one night we stayed. He refunded less than half and 2 weeks ago I called again and he told me he would refund the rest that night. After filing my 2nd complaint with HomeAway..they suggested I write a review. In the meantime, I have had several emails back and forth with the owner in which he makes promises to refund our money and then never does. I think the first of many emails I have sent below will get the point across:

We are not staying

In the house tonight or for the rest of the week. I told you I smelled something awful like a dead animal and it just got worse. One of my children threw up from the intensity of the smell and I sent all my kids over to my brothers last night to sleep on his floor. None of us slept well as the smell was awful and made us all feel sick.

We left this morning with every intention of giving it another try hoping the smell would dissipate by the time we got back this afternoon and it was even worse. In addition, the showers had hair in the bottom and there was no hot water so we had to take cold showers. We

also had 2 large cockroaches crawl through the kitchen while we were eating last night. It has not been a good experience. The smell was the deal breaker. There is a dead animal somewhere in your walls. A mouse or rat or possum.

We will not leave you a bad rating if we can get all but the one night returned to us. I think that is fair, considering. 5 days should be enough time for you to credit us back all but one night.

Currently we are staying downtown at a hotel. We had to rent 4 rooms because no houses are available. This whole situation has been very costly. We appreciate your understanding as we know this may have been a fluke/ one time situation.

Thank you,

Owner's Response: The reviewer has posted untruths about this property. Please refer to my many other reviews, many five star reviews including a five star review from the guest who left the day before this guest arrived. There was no smell or odor present in the property. I had a group of nine persons come to the property after Guest vacated, there was no odors or smells of any dead animal. There is plenty of hot water, it takes about one minute for the water to travel from the garage furnace room about 60 feet to reach the hall and master bathrooms. Hot water heater is a 50 gallon high recovery gas unit that provides 88 gallons of hot water per hour. In south Texas as in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina there are Palmetto bugs that fly, as most folks are aware. Especially in South Texas Palmetto bugs live in the trees, in the alleys, basically everywhere. They are attracted to water features such a swimming pools, ponds, and hot tubs at night. We are aware of this and spray our yards and homes frequently to help mitigate the Palmettos. There is no way to completely rid any property of flying pests such as Palmetto bugs, flies, etc. While infrequently found, on occasion one or two may be seen, mostly due to a guest leaving a door open. We have all baseboards treated and if any insects touch the baseboards they succumb shortly. It is not a case for panic or drama as this reviewer has shown for spotting two Palmetto bugs. The guest took possession of the property and stayed for 24 hours. Under my terms of service the guest was not entitled to any refunds. Since I was away for the weekend on a three day vacation I agreed to provide a partial refund because I was not there. However, she has shown that she is one of the most litigious people I have ever met. She sent many threatening and unprofessional emails about filing lawsuits against, and threatening to leave ugly reviews, so final payment was withheld until she agreed to not leave any review and cease and desist threats. At that time the partial refund was completed. One week later she filed a bad review anyway, showing the world her dishonesty. I have fought back against such passive aggressive behavior by giving her a one star review based upon the above. This means when she tries to book from another owner they can automatically read the review and my response, and will not rent to her. See my other reviews for what to expect, this one is not accurate.
