Neighborhood : This lovely home-away-from-home is located just south of downtown in the Lavaca neighborhood, the oldest residential neighborhood in San Antonio. From the front door, it is a short walk to the Alamo, the Riverwalk, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Alamodome, Rivercenter Mall, the Blue Star Arts complex and many other attractions.

Transportation: If you want to see the best of San Antonio and don't want to deal with driving, our house is perfect for you!

It's a five-block walk to the Henry Gonzalez Convention Center and seven blocks to the Alamo. If you'd rather not walk or if you're headed somewhere a bit farther away, it's only one block to the San Antonio transit system, including the picturesque downtown trolleys, which pick up every 15 minutes, and buses that connect to all parts of the city. San Antonio B-Cycle, our fabulous bike sharing service, also has several nearby stations. If you do have a vehicle, there's easy highway access and off-street parking for four cars.

For your protection and ours, I will need to speak to you on the phone before confirming a rental. Please follow up e-mail inquiries with a phone call or be sure to leave a phone number so I can call you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There are 8 ladies from around the country going home with belly aches and full hearts after the incredible weekend we had at Casa Linda. Thank you so much for accommodating us while we kicked off our first annual girls' weekend trip. We loved being able to walk to the local restaurants that were close by, and the popcorn and mac-n-cheese made for the perfect late night snacks.

Thank you again! We loved it!

Delightful spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place to meet with old friends and enjoy each other in San Antonio. The house is charming, clean, roomy and well equipped. We spent many hours just visiting in the comfy living room. The location is very convenient to the Alamo, Riverwalk, restaurants, stores and more. Tommy was wonderful to work with and he provided lots of info about the neighborhood and house. The renting process was a breeze.

excellent rental....

  • 5 of 5

Sadly I could not stay in the house because it had already been booked the day I needed.Tommy had accidentally double booked us that weekend. He took care of the situation and made sure my family and I had a place to stay.

So the review is not about the actual house,it's about his great service. I went into total panic mode on my way with family and not having a place to stay but he went the extra mile to make sure everything went A OK...!

Thanks again.

Excellent Location, Lots of Space

  • 5 of 5

The 30 year anniversary of Pretty In Pink, sparked the reason for this trip. A group of us that were inseparable in middle school, all decided to gather for a girls weekend. Some of us hadn't seen each other in 30 years! The house was so perfect for this reunion. There was lots of space and it was in the perfect location. We walked to restaurants and the river walk. We hung out on the porch and stayed up late chatting and catching up in the comfortable living room. The owners were fantastic and got back to us right away with any questions. The house was beautiful and had lots of charm. It was the perfect backdrop and had all the comforts we needed to have this fun girls weekend. My favorite part was walking out the front door at night and looking up to see the tower lit up just right there in front of the house! Beautiful!

Excellent house, chill cats

  • 5 of 5

As great as the pictures are, this house was even better than I was expecting. Large, welcoming, and beautiful. Even as you roll up on it, it exudes personality from the outside and continues to the inside. And everything from the kitchen to the bathrooms are prepped and ready for your stay.

It's pretty much right at the northern tip of Southtown, the moderately new and happenin' place in San Antonio. There's a great list of recommended places to check out thrown in for visitors, and most of them are within walking distance. You can seriously look from the driveway and see restaurants.

One thing to note is that the host Tommy doesn't technically book through VRBO. You'll have to view and sign a rental contract separately and pay either through PayPal or via check. It's relatively painless but it is outside the norm and takes a bit longer to complete. It is well worth it, though.

Also the driveway cats are awesome.

Perfect location near the Riverwalk

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time in San Antonio and Casa Linda was the perfect accommodation for us. Walking distance to the riverwalk, convention center, and grocery stores, it was the perfect location for attending a convention at the convention center. The house was large and the pictures accurate depict what to expect. Kitchen was fully stocked with staples. Bedrooms were large and bathrooms were clean. We will likely stay here in the future. Thanks to Tommy who was a pleasure to coordinate with and respected our privacy. I highly recommend Casa Linda if you are looking to go to San Antonio.

Awesome House in a Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

I agree with the previous 5-star reviews. This house is the one you want, if you are planning a trip to San Antonio. My family of 5 adults and 2 little kids stayed in the house during the Rock 'n Roll Marathon, which started and ended at the Alamodome. We were able to walk to several wonderful restaurants, the Riverwalk and the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center, in addition to the race. If we return to San Antonio for another family vacation, we will definitely stay at this house!
