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!

Great location

Charming old home in central SA. Several bars and excellent restaurants a few blocks away.

  • 5 of 5

Charming colorfully painted old Texas home gives a feel for old San Antonio. 3 bedroom plus couch bed, 2 baths, great back deck with grill. Neighborhood feel and neighborhood bars restaurants. Able to walk to river walk and Alamo. Neighborhood cats hanging out-were a treat

Truly great place to stay! We liked everything about it.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location! Walkers can get to the historic part of town and the Riverwalk in less than a mile. It's also a short and inexpensive Uber/Lyft ride (under $10) for the evenings. San Antonio has plenty of drivers.

The house itself is a classic. Perfect for groups who want to stop at the grocery on the way into town, do some basic cooking, share breakfast around a big table, have a comfortable living room to visit and have a glass of wine without having to go to a restaurant or bar. Comfortable beds and well equipped with things that travelers sometimes forget.

Tommy was very friendly and accommodating. Could not have been more helpful.

P.S. We loved the Segway tour :-)

Owner's Response: Gena, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We''re happy to hear that you were comfortable and that the house had what you needed. We can't think of everything, but we try! I haven't tried the Segway tour. Thanks for the tip!

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in San Antonio. The house was perfect. We had a group of 6 adults and 2 kids ages 5 and 2. The house had everything we needed. Including pac-n-play, high chair, and stroller for our two year old. The River Walk is just a short 10 minute walk away. If we every make our way back down to San Antonio we will definitely be looking at this home again.
