About Carlos

Hello! My name is Carlos; owner and founder of SA Vacay (San Antonio Vacation Rental Homes). I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. My wife Stephanie and I have 6 children; 4 boys and and 2 girls!

I am a God-fearing, bible believing Christian and seek to glorify God with this home and our commitment to service towards all of our guests. I am one of the deacons at Grace Community Church of San Antonio ( & If you are looking for a church to visit while in San Antonio, we would be glad to have you and your family!

I enjoy working from home where my children are home-schooled. My wife enjoys gardening and raising her chickens; she wants a goat but I don't know about that. :-) I enjoy riding my bike at the San Antonio Mission Trails, Down Town, Riverwalk, and some other places, including a little off-road mountain biking.

Why Carlos chose San Antonio

Well I didn’t choose San Antonio, God chose it for me 40 years ago. Oblivious to how great our city is, I spent most of my teenage & early 20’s hoping to travel to other cities and for an opportunity to experience life anywhere but San Antonio. The Lord saved me when I was 25 yrs old and I realized that there was nothing new under the sun. Wanting to run from my home town would have been nothing more than chasing after the wind.

In 2001, I started working for a service contractor which provided me an opportunity to travel. I would always stay in a box (hotel), and if there was any leisure time, I would get in the rental car and explore the city’s scenery. It was nice but lacking a personalized experience. I wanted to know more about the city than just its buildings and scenery. I wanted to know the people and the experience of being a local; or at least feel like one for a few days. I thought, if I could stay amongst the people, then perhaps I could meet interesting people, share the gospel of Jesus Christ and build friendships.

What an opportunity we all have when renting a Vacation Rental Home! I once did a site visit at Disney World in Orlando Florida for a contract. There was an area in Downtown Disney that could convert your child’s hair, makeup and attire to become a princess for the day. Well you could become a San Antonian for a few days or even a few weeks when staying in one of my vacation homes! Come get to know the neighbors, community, and my fellow San Antonian’s!

San Antonio is a beautiful city that has preserved its history and provides an aura of nostalgia. The Alamo, Missions, Riverwalk, Market Square, King William Historical District, La Villita, etc…, make the city attractive, romantic and family oriented. The city is vast and widespread with amenities such as countless golfing venues, shops, theme parks (Sea World & Six Flags), museums, nature parks, zoo, sporting events, horseback riding, bike trails, swimming, shooting, hunting, etc...

What makes this house unique

This property is perfect for staging vacations that will include visiting San Antonio's theme parks, both Sea World and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. The two sets of bunk beds are always a winner for the kids. Beautiful large deck with barbecue pit is excellent for gatherings and large family dinners!!!

Fantastic quirky retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a second time, simply because its a great spot.

Centrally located and easily accessible from all sides of San Antonio.... The house itself is cute, great layout and has loads of character! Enough space for a large family, great kitchen with all you need and an HEB just a few minutes away...

Owner takes great care of all his properties and we have been loyal guests for sometime now, always friendly and helpfull.

You'll love this property! It's the best!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, roomy, secure, private, within close range of several events such as Sea World, Schlitterbahn, and almost any eating establishments you could dream up..national chains, to smaller businesses, as well as an HEB a couple streets over. The things we most loved were the climate controls, comfy and roomy bedrooms, clean towels, washer/dryer, Netflix!!!, backyard porch, and garage entrance for handy lock-up and weather events. The kitchen was stocked with everything imaginable that you could need! Garage has extra chairs, strollers, supplies...Even had toys and games for our younger generation! You will be at peace as "Carlos" is professional and available and his assistant is too! You're going to be glad you stayed!!!!!

Great stay at a lovely vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this vacation rental. We were visiting family in the area and this location was close and convenient. It is also close to many restaurants and other types of shopping. The house is located in a lovely neighborhood and in the morning while we had our coffee, I would open the dining area shades and enjoy the local flora and fauna! We thought that we had to get used to the multi-levels of the open floor plan but that only took a day and we were comfortable. This house was comfortable and clean. We loved it and had a great stay!

Carlos was extremely accommodating. When he heard that we arrived in SA early ... he immediately said to head over to the house! We met Anita when we arrived and she was able to give us a tour and help us get acclimated. They were always available by phone - very accommodating! Thank you for a great place to stay!

Lots of shopping -we have teens in the family - so we hit a lot of the local malls!

We had a lovely dinner at Myron's Steakhouse to celebrate the anniversary of my son and daughter-in-law!

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, little boy and I stayed in this home for an extended weekend get-a-way. It was perfect for our needs and the layout of the home is very practical with a more open concept living, dining and kitchen area. The home is well stocked with home essentials and things you need to have a very comfortable stay, without having to cart your whole house with you or buying things once you arrive. Carlos was VERY fast with all of our communications, and was very helpful and accommodating to a couple of requests we had while we were there. Anita was very helpful when we arrived and gave us a tour of the home and showed us where everything was located in the home. We enjoyed our stay in San Antonio and appreciated the proximity of the home to the places we were visiting while we were there. Thank you Carlos!

We stayed here in April 2016, we were two families with four children between us (1 infant). THis was a great choice for us to stay in! Carlos is great to work with and his associate Anita is as well! We found the house extremely clean and everything we needed was well stocked. They have thought of every detail ! LOVED the welcome package (includes shampoos, sponges, dish soap, body wash), it was a great touch. Beds were very comfortable, linens were so cute! Great back deck, we had our niece's fifth birthday on the deck and the kids LOVED this place. They have a great selection of toys and activities for children and even have strollers for guests to use! We were very impressed and Carlos was so kind and attentive to anything we needed. Definitely would stay here again.
