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!

Spacious historic house in fun area near downtown

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a quiet old neighborhood which is also near downtown and the South Alamo raft of restaurants and the King William area. There are dozens of restaurants within a mile and many within one to three blocks (we enjoyed La Foccacia, La Frite, B&D, The Station were just a few). Back to the house and the owner: we loved the beautiful old house with lots of space to gather in the living room and dining room, the four bedrooms upstairs and a second full bathroom downstairs was a nice option when needed. I personally really appreciated the kitchen that had all the equipment that one would need to cook and bake (I made biscuits one morning and brownies one evening); there were pots, pans, trays, measuring cups and spoons, flour, baking powder, sugar, spices). There were also some provisions that allowed for some snacking before we needed to go the grocery store which is only a mile away (we walked to the grocery store one evening). The owners were great about providing information we needed prior to our arrival and then also in being responsive to our quirky schedule and questions after we arrived. The house was clean and ready for us and had everything that we needed. We really enjoyed the house and experience. We have already decided that we are returning to this house the next time that we will be in San Antonio!

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

Easily walkable to the Convention Center for my conference. Just far enough out of the way that we weren't swamped. The house is awesome and Tommy was easy to work with. Looking into coming back again next year.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is very welcoming and in a great location. The house is comfortable, roomy and has lots of character. Walking distance to the River Walk, Alamo, the Tower of the Americas and many great restaurants and bars. We were a group 6 women celebrating our 50th birthdays and really enjoyed the spaciousness of the indoor and outdoor areas of the house. Tommy was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and even let us stay well beyond the check out time since we had a later flight.

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!
