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.

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!

Five women went to the Women of Joy convention at the Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center. We stayed at Casa Linda and were very comfortable. Plenty of room to sit around and talk. Comfortable beds. And the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Thank you!!!!!

My family and I all enjoyed our stay on Barrera Street. The house was comfortable, spacious and charming and the neighborhood was perfect. We walked everywhere and there were good restaurants nearby. I would happily stay there again.

Great Location, Charming House

  • 5 of 5

Casa Linda was great! I came with a group of friends to celebrate my 30th birthday and we found the house to charming and well stocked. The neighborhood had a lot of great restaurants within walking distance (Feast was our favorite) and it was only a $5 Uber to the Riverwalk. Tommy's communication was great and I would highly recommend this rental.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great stay here. It was perfect for our needs and the location was super convenient. Lots of places within walking distance of the home and uber's around the city were easy and cheap. The house was great and contact with Tommy was easy and reliable. We will be back here if our travels take us back to San Antonio!

Older historical home that needs no upgrades

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first experience renting a home instead of multiple hotel rooms. The owners did the home right by keeping it in as close to the period of the age and location. We loved the fact that the home allowed us to stay as a family unit and enjoy our children as they start their own families. The Home was in our opinions has the right amount of furniture and accomplations exapecially with the TV in one location which allow the family to gather in one area and the bedrooms were restful minus the modern technology

The owners responded as needed and made the whole process very enjoyable and lack nothing

We will surely rent again!!!
