A Golden Retriever dog and several cats also are on staff. Your own pets are negotiable with an additional charge.

This is a fully furnished corporate unit complete with linens, dishes, utensils, pots and pans, TV, DVD, telephone, washer and dryer, internet service and cable. The only thing necessary is your suitcase. A utility allowance is included in monthly rental fees.

Conveniently located in a busy corridor of San Antonio, this is a park-like setting that gives you the feel of living in the country. A scenic 12 mile bicycle,walking path (Leon Creek Greenway)and an 18-hole golf course are within a mile of the property.

The property is also close to USAA, Valero, University of Texas Health Science Center, UTSA, La Cantera/Rim/Six Flags 'Fiesta' TX and the I10/Loop 1604 area. All of the area hospitals are minutes away.

The Texas Barn is a non-smoking environment.

The Barn is fully stocked with old fashioned games - Cards, Dominoes, Risk, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, etc.

About The Owner: I am a retired educator and airline employee. My husband and I enjoy traveling, but we also love our home in San Antonio. Gardening and keeping the grounds lovely is a favorite pastime. We especially love to entertain, and enjoy the evenings around the patio area. We cook out often and enjoy al fresco dining and a glass of wine or a margarita by the pool. We love to get to know our guests. There is always an open invitation. We have two golden retrievers and several cats who will want to be petted and loved.

For a relaxing getaway, this is the place to come! You are right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of San Antonio, and yet once you enter this property, you feel like you are in the country! Please see virtual tour under Amenities!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Rhonda and Paul were very helpful with information and trying to make your stay the best possible. This was our first VRBO rental and we are so glad we did this. The home was clean, functional, and secluded. Our favorite was swimming in the pool under the grapefruit tree! We would stay at the barn again!

What a great retreat for a family, truly it was home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful estate. I would recommend this place to anybody. The property was so peaceful we BBQ every night and enjoyed the pool with our own privacy. We also enjoyed Buddy (family dog) and PB (family cat) it was so homey so if you are looking for quite and private you will be happy. Paul and Rhonda are great people they are friendly or if you want your privacy the respect this too. We only had one request and within 30 min. it was resolved. Location was within 20min. of everything.

A beautiful retreat minutes from all the attractions of San Antonio

  • 5 of 5

The property was spacious and beautifully decorated. The setting was beautiful and we'll maintained. The barn house was separate from the main house so it was very quite and private. The hosts, Ronda and Paul could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I would definitely stay there again.

Great Memorial Day Week Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property with everything that you will need for a great stay. The kitchen is fully stocked. The bed is very comfortable. The location is very close to grocery stores and restaurants. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. It was very nice to feel secure at night, even the local deer enjoy wandering the property. This was a great find in San Antonio and I hope we get a chance to stay again!

Property was just as advertised. Quiet, beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Barn-house during our golf vacation. We found everything in working order and well stocked. Rhonda and Paul were very helpful hosts. It was easy to navigate in the area. Restaurants are plentiful. Very comfortable king bed in master. Shower in one bathroom/tub in main bath. Buddy, the golden retriever, was our guardian. What a sweet dog!

Thank you Rhonda and Paul.
