Fiesta Texas, Sea World, Splash Town, Schlitterbahn, San Marcos Outlet Malls and the Texas Hill Country are all within 30 minutes.
When we first arrived at the property late afternoon it seemed just as it was shown on homeaway. We went to dinner at a restaurant the owner had suggested. When we got back to the house my daughter was going to take a shower and she screamed in horror over a large bug crawling on the wall. My son killed it. After some research it looked like a cockroach. My son saw another bug crawl behind the molding in the bathroom. He started moving the beds to check and found several more cockroaches crawling on the floor under the bed. We used the spray cockroach spray under the sink and closed off that bedroom for the evening. My husband called the owner and he told us we should expect bugs in Texas. We told him we would stay that one night, my grandchildren were in another room sleeping, but we would have to leave the next day because we cannot expect our family to stay in a house that has cockroaches. He insisted they were Texas waterbugs. We checked the three other bedrooms for bugs and did not find any. We showed our family the pictures of the bugs we took and they live in Texas and they confirmed they were cockroaches not Texas waterbugs. We were hoping the owner would refund the balance of our stay but he said no. He should not expect anyone to stay in a home that has cockroaches walking around.
We rented this property for a family vacation. We loved it. It is a dated home but is very clean. The only problem we had was the missing cord and cut wires on the cable box in the master bedroom. We didn't even bother Mr. Williams with this because we were exhausted by bedtime and it was no big deal.
We had such a good time swimming and playing cards with the kids. Great place for families with teens and children.
I am not sure if we got our deposit back but we haven't even thought about it again until now.
The house looked nice on the outside and the pool area was nice. The neighborhood was pretty and quiet and the shopping area nearby was very nice. The patio area was very unsteady and difficult for older people to navigate. The house was not clean. The door on the fridge was falling apart. The sink in the small bath was falling apart. There was a musty odor in the house. The carpets in the bedrooms were riddled with stains but the owner accused my group of making one of those stains and deducted money from the deposit. I left the property in a much cleaner state than I found it. This would be a good place for college age kids.
We drove from California to visit my sister and her 15 grandchildren. My son's family of 4 flew in from So. Carolina. This house turned into our home for three days. From the very beginning of our visit the kids were all over the Foosball game and having their way with the card table and poker chips. As it was December, the pool did not get used but looked very inviting. The BBQ offered the perfect place for the huge cooking of the Fajitas for the 25 or so mouths to feed. Everything was as if it was set up just for us. Plenty of plates, glasses, cooking utensils, and even some condiments in the Fridge. Next time we are in SATX we will be staying here. Keep up the great work!
Our family went to San Antonio for our son's graduation from military basic training. This house very comfortably accommodated 7 adults, a baby and our dog with room to spare, It was large, clean and excellent in every way. Very private and totally fenced in. The garage easily fit our two large vehicles. The neighborhood was very safe and quiet. The grocery store was walking distance from the house. There were plenty of towels and storage too. The owner was responsive and a very nice guy. He went out of his way to make sure everything would be perfect for the reunion with our son! The deposit was also returned to me in a timely manner.
The location was perfect too! Literally 5 minutes to the airport, which was nice for our frequent runs back and forth our first and last day at the home. Only 20-25 minutes to Lackland AFB and the Riverwalk. The freeway was only 3 minutes away, so getting anywhere was very easy.
There isn't anything bad to say about our decision to stay at this home, and that is what it felt like, a home away from home! Our experience was excellent all the way around and we would gladly stay at this home again when we find our way back to San Antonio!
Thank you Greg for being so accommodating!
We rented this outstanding property over Thanksgiving weekend and we could not have been happier! Three full families with toddlers stayed here very comfortably. Plenty of kitchen items for a family Thanksgiving Dinner. Outstanding amenities and the location was absolutely perfect. We were within 20 minutes to everything we wanted to do in San Antonio.
The owner was very responsive and friendly. I would definitely recommend this property and I sure hope to stay at this house again in the future!
