San Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

4+ BR, 2 Bath, Corner Lot, River Walk 6 mi, 13 @ 2/bed + infant, 7 @ 1/bed + inf

Please read this whole description, I am an experienced owner and I cover a lot of different scenarios including how to save a lot of money in air fares and military discounts. So read all this please.

Right now I have a long term rental which lasts until mid February, 2016, and it is rented for most of the rest of February. However, spring is around the corner!

*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. Many of my Guests in the past have not used the pool so the heat is wasted. By turning off only the pool heat component, I can offer this home for less at the price advertised in the rates section.

We are re-configuring the living/dining room ares (see photo) to make a 4th bedroom inside the dining room with a queen bed. The queen bed is already there, but the wall between the living room and dining room is temporary. We hope to make the changeover during the Christmas holiday when the current tenants will return to their home city for the holidays. the separate dining room not used furniture is being moved to the family room. So when available for your vacation, there will be 4 bedrooms inside the home.

My pool is heated to 85 degrees! How warm is your pool? We also have a bull frog Spa for 5 persons. Now some folks do not want to use a swimming pool or hot tub in the cold winter months. If this is your choice, I can shut off the pool heat and the hot tub heat, if necessary, and will pass the savings along to you depending on the length of your stay. Please let me know if you want the "no pool heat" or the "no hot tub heat" option and I can lower your rate.

San Antonio Executive Rental presents several HomeAway properties which are all very fine furnished homes, all my homes have Hot Tubs, Four of my homes have PRIVATE Heated SWIMMING POOLS! Kindly see my other HomeAway listings 251770, 264687, 165973 and 190679.

Why stay in an expensive hotel with one small room or suite when I provide you with a whole house for less!

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 Family Home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a family vacation. Jim, the owner, is great and makes sure you have everything you need. The house is spacious with plenty of bed/living space options. The pool is great and such a welcome retreat. The home is conveniently located close to shopping/restaurants- be sure to get the tamales from the place Jim recommends.

Great place to stay while visiting San Antonio

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for our family of eight to stay while visiting San Antonio. It was conveniently located to the airport and most of the sites we visited. The home was comfortable and the pool was very nice. The hot tub was great since the weather was in the 70s. Jim gave us some good advice on the area and what to see and do. His maps made it easy for us to know where we needed to go since the downtown can be a little hard to navigate even with GPS. We would recommend this property as a great place to stay while in this area, it can be used as a place to just relax or as a hub for exploring San Antonio.

Nice Owner, OK home

  • 3 of 5

We think Jim is a nice person, and appreciated his desire to fix the items in the home that were not up to par, such as; heated pool wasn't heated, the sliding doors didn't really slide. Again, Jim is a sweet Landlord, however, we just felt the home was not really ready for us when we arrived. The place didn't feel completely clean, all towels in the house were damp (so we washed them as soon as we felt them), the main bathroom shower has mold in the grout, and we had some issues with the cable. Overall, I think Jim will do a better job next time regarding ensuring everything is clean and in working condition. Jim is very concern that his guests enjoy themselves, so I truly believe this house will be a GREAT rental next time. You should rent this home. It's not far from the River Walk, and now that the heated pool is working - IT IS GREAT!!
