About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Nice Kitchen (Sleeps 2)

Whether you’re traveling to San Antonio for work or coming into town to play, why not stay someplace quiet and cozy?

This delightful 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom, 750 square-foot home is located in an relaxing community off Babcock across the street from the UTHSC Track, just minutes from downtown San Antonio. This is one of the safest neighborhoods in San Antonio.

Each room is fully furnished to help you feel at home. In the evenings, relax in the large fenced yard under a 500 year old Live Oak Tree.

This house was recently built next to my home. It has all tile floors and granite counter tops. It is on an approx 1 acre lot with huge trees, tree swing, BBQ pit, bird houses, free roaming deer, all in the middle of town!

Why Irma Dromgoole chose San Antonio

I love this property, my neighbors are very nice, to my left, a gentleman who lives there since 1952 and he is 96 years old. To my right is a couple with four young children and they are very busy with all kinds of sports. Two houses across the street lives a Sports Medicine Doctor and next to him lives a Registered Nurse. I feel very lucky to be among these very nice people. Most important, everything is close by. The entrance to the expressway is pretty close. Most of all, I love it because I live in the city and it's like living in the country.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the beautiful apartment, everything was beautifully done and extremely comfortable. The neighborhood was lovely and very quiet. One day we even had deer roaming the front yard, it was quite beautiful. Irma was the perfect host and made us feel very welcome. My husband and I would highly recommend this rental!

Jim & Diane Kochmann's review of VRBO 3530232ha

  • 5 of 5

We rented Irma's VRBO from February 27 - March 6. Her guest house is on her home property and she greeted us in the driveway when we arrived. Everything on the property was exactly as described on the Home-Away site. When we texted or phoned with questions or needed advice, she responded immediately. We felt safe in the cozy neighborhood and enjoyed many walks with our dog while watching all the deer watch us!! San Antonio was easy to navigate with gps and inviting to tourists and dogs alike. The Riverwalk was a great winter break for us Minnesotians. If we ever travel to San Antonio again we would rent this VRBO.

Best place To stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my home-away from home. I love everything about this place----perfect size, love the gas range and the fridge size, the windows in the kitchen that look out into the big backyard that has a huge oak tree, etc, etc. But best of all is how kind, welcoming, and gracious Irma and Leroy have been. I feel as if I have met 2 new friends. I so look forward to staying here again!

Great week in San Antonio

  • 5 of 5

Although my husband was sick during part of our stay, we had a lovely stay in San Antonio. And Irma was more than gracious. The apartment was the perfect setting and took care of all our needs. It was great to be so close to so many things we wanted to do. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt safe and comfortable. We loved seeing the deer around the neighborhood! Thanks for a wonderful week of Christmas in a great area!

Wonderful apartment, wonderful location, but most of all wonderful owners!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time booking through VRBO. We were nervous at first but it turned out to be a great experience. The location was perfect. We had lived in San Antonio for almost 25 years before retiring and moving to our home on the Mississippi Gulf Coast so we already new our way around the city. Irma and Leroy's home and apartment is located in the center of anywhere you would want to go in SA. The property is shaded and beautiful with deer roaming throughout the neighborhood. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. We could tell a lot of planning and hard work went into building this rental. Everything was provided to make our stay worry free. The apartment had all the conviences of home. A brand new flat screen TV had just been installed to add to the other perks throughout. We had our own parking space under the shade of the trees. Perfect!! Out of five stars we would give ten if we could. The very best thing about this rental was the wonderful couple that owned it. Irma was always available and explained everything we needed to know....even before we arrived she was in touch with us in case we had any questions or concerns. We discovered Irma and Leroy knew some of the same people we knew. They even surprised Vernon with a birthday cupcake with candle on his birthday. A special touch from two special people!!! We highly recommend this rental. Perfect price, perfect location, perfect apartment, and most of all perfect owners who have become great friends. We hope to make it back again soon!!!! Thanks Irma & Leroy !!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the owners were extremely nice. Very peaceful place real close to all the attractions. We saw deer on a daily basis which was pretty neat since we were in the middle of town.

Map

Car: recommended

Located near Medical Center, quite on 1 acre lot with large oak trees and deer freely roam the area. It is centrally located and it can take you to major attractions in a considerable amount of time. The Riverwalk /Downtown about 15-17 minutes, San Antonio Airport 12 minutes, Seaworld/Fiesta Texas about 20 min, La Cantera 12 minutes and the many hospitals like Methodist Hospital, University Hospital, Christus Santa Rosa Medical Center, VA Hospital, St Lukes Baptist Hospital are all a few minutes away from the house. The UT Medical Center Campus are also very near to our place, 5 min-away approximately.

Our home is located in the Medical Center Area which is a safe, convenient place to live is San Antonio. The Medical Center is a place of business and study. It is going through a lot of improvements in the last 2 years . There are many fast food restaurants and casual dining places here. There are many medical professionals that live in our neighborhood. The neighborhood is a small community that is just low key but safe. It is not gated.

Getting around in your car is recommended. Nevertheless, the house is near to a lot of restaurants and grocery stores. However, our house is a walk away from the biggest park and ride bus station in the city. If I can remember right, it is only $1.10 to go to Downtown/Riverwalk. The bus also goes to Seaworld, Fiesta Texas, San Antonio Zoo and Botanical Gardens, La Cantera etc. Many of my past guests did not find any difficulty going around the city's attractions.
