It's a five-block walk to the Henry Gonzalez Convention Center and seven blocks to the Alamo.

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!

Great Girls Get-a-way Location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely older home in the historic King William district close to downtown San Antonio. We used UBER for our longer trips in/around San Antonio, ranging in price from $15-$20. There were 4 of us (female friends from college), so we each had our own bedroom, with plenty of space. Tommy was very responsive to all of our questions and we were able to check-in a few hours early, which was great for our varying arrival schedules. The beds were comfortable, however we did suggest to Tommy to look into getting new pillows for the beds since the majority of them lost their fluff. (Tommy said he would look into getting fluffier pillows.) The home has an alarm system that provided us with a feeling of added security. We had no problems with the internet, washer/dryer, thermostat, and dishwasher. Also, the majority of the restaurants within walking distance of the house were superb (including the Battalion and La Frite Belgian Bistro).

Overall great house with Texas feel.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location and house for our group of 8 going to the convention center. We brought our kids and grandparents to make it a working vacation. The location was easily walkable to all of the River Walk and the Convention center each day. Tommy the host had the house stocked with necessities like coffee, fruit, cereal, all the things we needed after arriving very late at night with tired and hungry kids. That was a bonus that I never would have expected. The house is older and took a little getting used to with some creaks and squeaks, but once we settled in it was very charming.

We would definitely recommend this home and would stay there again in the future.

Nice house in a fun neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

I was in town with a few coworkers for a conference at the convention center. This house was a great place for us to stay. It was a 10 minute walk to the convention center, and a 10-15 minute walk to breweries. It's also just down the street from some food trucks. We really enjoyed it!

Great place for a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We got some friends together and came to stay at Casa Linda for the weekend. Perfect place to stay for a adult weekend because it is close to bars and eateries. The owner was really nice and it was very easy check in and checkout process. The home is over 100 years old but has been kept up nicely and maintained. There are upstairs and downstairs thermostats so that helps with keeping the temperature regulated. We didn't do any cooking but the kitchen seemed well stocked. Overall a great experience for the price and location!
