*Note 1: If you want to have the pool heated during the winter and spring in the advertised "no pool heat rates", contact me for the cost of adding pool heat to your price.

Truly your home away from home while visiting San Antonio.

Traveler Tip #1: Save on your airline tickets: If coming by air to San Antonio, please also price flying to Austin, Texas and going back to Austin when leaving, renting a car in Austin and driving to San Antonio. Many of my Guests who have done this have told me they save an average of $150.00 per person. So if you are traveling as a group of 8 persons you can save about $1200.00 which could be applied to cover a huge amount of the cost of my rental to you for your trip. Built in savings like that is truly a good thing!

Traveler Tip #2: Save on car rentals: When renting a car, make an early reservation and watch the prices about every ten days, if your price goes down, cancel the first reservation and make a new one. Car and truck rental prices are determined on the futures market, and has nothing to do with the day you reserve. Futures markets change often and so thus do the prices of their cars to you.

About Jim Smith, CTA, Owner

Owner Jim Smith moved to San Antonio in 2004 from Washington, DC where he spent most of his adult career as a Realtor, Home Builder, and later as a Building and Zoning Code Consultant. In the earlier years Jim spent his free time as a Special Olympics County Coordinator in Maryland (7 years) where he set up a county Special Olympics program which almost five hundred Special Olympians spread around 35 schools. Later, he spent his free time as a community activist, being the President or Board or Committee Member of scores of community interest groups including his civic association, and also served on several Washington, DC Mayoral Commissions including the Building Code Advisory Board (8 years) and the Recreational Trails Commission which decided where to spend public transportation funds for recreational trails in Washington, DC (6 years). The fast pace and hypertension of Washington, DC was too much to bear, so Jim transplanted himself to San Antonio, Texas. In San Antonio, Jim has remodeled six properties, including his home and five other rental properties that are fully furnished. The furniture and interiors were selected for each home by Jim and his sister, Jan, and the results are fine rental accommodation that are reasonable in cost. Jim's full time job is making Guests comfortable, and helping them navigate San Antonio to its many attractions and restaurants. This adventure for Jim has been anything but a progression for retirement, having 14 bathrooms, 19 bedrooms, 26 beds, six sleep sofas, six kitchens, four pools and five hot tubs keeps him totally busy 24/7.

Jim is a Certified Tourist Ambassador and is extremely knowledgeable about San Antonio and its colorful history

In spite of all the hard work, it is indeed a reward to finally settle down in the same city as his lovely sister, Jan, and her husband, David. Jim hopes that all of you who are estranged from your loved ones, living in remote parts, can come together soon and enjoy your loving families!

Great place and had a great time. Jim was very helpful with the "little extras"

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of eight. Ages for the group from 84 to 5 and suited the needs of all. We had 2 needing wheelchairs and Jim went above what was expected and provided 2 chairs at no extra charge. The floor plan worked great. We were attending my son's BMT graduation. We had no problem with the drive and my son enjoyed getting away from he base. I would rent the pool house again and would recommend it.

Positives- House was spacious enough, Jim seemed to want to make us happy, pool and hot tub were relaxing. House had lots of towels and conveniently located near airport and The River walk. Plenty of closet space.

Negatives- We could not take a hot shower for 3 days into our 6 night stay. (This is the biggest disappointment) Jim would come work on the hot water heater, say it was fixed, then leave. Wore shower shoes because the grout was funky. After the 3rd or 4th time the gas company finally came out to fix it. We did get an apology but no other compensation for this. Home's foundation is off and you can for sure feel it in the kitchen. Washing Machine did not spin completely and it took a long time to wash clothes.

Owner's Response: We sometimes have a turnover on the same day. The Pool House had this happen. I personally assisted my staff with the cleaning of the home. When the Guest checked in the home was clean and there was hot water. In addition we washed five loads of laundry and the washing machine was working properly. Later in the evening I got a telephone call that there was no hot water and when I arrived I discovered that the Guest had played around with the hot water tank for some reason (perhaps for more heat or for a pilot failure. This was clearly a violation of the terms and conditions in my contract. A Guest is not to adjust or fool around with the hot water heater nor any other appliance rather than normal operation. The Guest is required to contact me immediately. After two days of work on the heater, the gas company coming out to replace the meter in the event it was defective, the final diagnosis was a sticking gas knob. The hot water tank has been replaced with a brand new 50 gallon hot water heater. During this process I discovered that the Guest was also fooling around with the washing machine. We have a two year old Maytag washing machine that is electronic. It requires 40 minutes to wash clothes. This Guest kept turning off the electronic control to put fabric softener in the machine instead of putting it in the washer in advance in the fabric softener container inside. When you shut off an electronic washer the unit shuts down and the cycle must start over. When I went to the home upon move out and washed the laundry personally, the machine was working properly and as intended. There was absolutely nothing at issue with the washer, it was the Guest fooling around with it. The Guest's failure to communicate and further the fooling around with my equipment earned this Guest a failing owner review of this Guest. They also left the home in absolutely filthy condition, the second worse condition that I have had in ten years of renting out this home. They failed to recycle and placed their garbage into the recycle can. Disgusting. I am sorry this Guest was unhappy but I was more unhappy with them for messing around with my equipment and for the filthy home that was left behind. The takeaway of this Guest's review and my response is that any Guest is not to play around with equipment, especially natural gas equipment. Guests need to communicate the issues upon discovery with the owner and not to attempt their own repairs.

Beautiful home for a vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful home for our visit to San Antonio for out niece's wedding. It was everything that the pictures showed and more. My husband loved it so much he took pictures of every room's layout in hopes to either renovate our house or build one just like it. He even drew up some pictures too. Jim was very professional and informative about the surrounding area and attractions. We would definitely stay here again when we go back to San Antonio for vacation.
