Comfortable and clean with a few cons!

  • 3 of 5

It was ok but had a few things wrong:

1. internet connection was so weak we could not use our phones, Hugh deal with teenagers and all the data they use!!

2. No grill- it was rusted inside and we could not use it

3. 2 of the burners on the stove did not work.

3. No trundle bed in second bedroom, just a mattress on the floor!

4. Queen bed in master bedroom sunk really bad in the middle

Our trip for Airman graduation.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our trip. It was convenient to all of the places we needed to get to. The kitchen was well stocked. The owners checked on us after we arrived to see if everything was okay and if we needed anything. I appreciated having the recycle bins. I would highly recommend.

Great Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family was able to vacation in San Antonio for a few days during the Christmas holidays, and the Westover is a great place to stay. It was easy to drive to the Riverwalk and downtown area, which is where we spent most of our time. Grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping establishments are also very close. The house is clean, in a quiet neighborhood with a nearby park, and the description on the website is accurate. Stan was very helpful and even purchased a pack and play crib for my infant grandson who was traveling with us. I would recommend this location for anyone visiting San Antonio.

Comfortable, spacious and super convenient to Sea World

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and four kids (including niece) really enjoyed our stay here. Loved having a fully furnished home vs just a hotel room. Bedrooms perfect. The information received prior to the visit was complete and very helpful. Appreciated security monitoring and being able to arm the house while home or away. Location was super close to Sea World and allowed us to go back to the house for a break. Had a blip with days reserved which was my fault and Mr. Stan was very accommodating. We are returning to the Westover in a week. Kids can't wait!

Great property.

  • 5 of 5

My son graduated BMT from Lackland. He didn't want a full agenda -- he had one of those for 7.5 weeks. I was able to stock the refrigerator with his favorite things. We played Euchre on the back deck, grilled burgers and he felt like he was at home. Only one small thing... grill. I assumed it was gas (admit I may have missed the charcoal part of the ad), so we had to run out for charcoal. Both grates --- holding charcoal and holding food --- are about gone. We were able to wrap foil around both and make it work. Property was beautiful, clean, comfortable and made for an absolutely amazing weekend...easy access to base, soooo close to Sea World. Property owner was sincere in making sure everything was ok. I would recommend this property to anyone. Thank you so much!!
