About Richard and Joey Dylla

Richard is retired from Holt Catepillar in San Antonio and now spends his time working the cattle farm. Joey is a financial advisor that works for a local Credit Union. They have 6-children and 5-grandchildren and a number of grand-dogs!

Richard and Joey Dylla purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Richard and Joey Dylla chose South Texas

This home was built by Richard, his dad and two brothers in 1960. After his parents passed away, Richard and Joey purchased the home from the family estate and began an 18-month renovation. The goal, to preserve the family home and to share it with others who enjoy the country life, even if only a vacation at a time! The home is warm and inviting farmhouse style without being too fussy. A perfect home for a family vacation or a girlfriends weekend!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Fully renovated, beautiful country home just a short drive to San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Austin and the Texas Hill Country.

Like to walk or jog? The city park is less than 2-miles away with small playground, park benches, covered picnic areas, and great walking/jogging paths with outdoor lighting.

Because we are located outside the city, you will find the room tax rate significantly lower (almost 10% lower) than city room tax rates. A significant savings for your vacation!

The best choice for our BMT Grad

They was the most perfect venue to hold our family comfortably .. being our Aimwan away from the busy city .. share a family meal ... he took a nice nap .. and lots of laughs. If I ever travel to San Antonio again .. the Dylla Farmhouse will be first on my list.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! The house was relaxing, very welcoming, clean, and quiet.

Enjoyed the fresh flowers and snacks to welcome us, including some yummy baked bread! Coffee bar was great and my kids loved the sensor trash can and the goodie baskets in the bedrooms.

It's location is quiet, far away from the city buzz, but still close enough to drive in to enjoy the sights.

Hope to stay here again!

Everything we expected and needed.

  • 4 of 5

In town for our son"s BMT graduation and stayed here. 8 of us and all managed fine. Little hectic with so many trying to get showers and get out the door with the early morning schedules of the Air Force. Our only issue, and not much of one, was the "cafe" across the street playing loud music in the evening. But I must say, they have very good taste in music! Worked out perfect for us. Would recommend for others who dont care for the city life! Grilled burgers and made salsa and just relaxed around the house and in the back yard with our son and his wingman. Just what we all needed!

Owner's Response: We so happy you all enjoyed your stay. We love our BMT families! Fortunately, the Cafe only hosts car club parties once in a blue moon. I guess y'all got the full Texas experience!

Lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful! I had my two daughters and a granddaughter (11 months) in our party and the house was perfect. Great location with a baby as there was a lovely back garden (yard) where she could play and crawl in the grass unwinding after a day on the go. Bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely, and donuts and cheese/crackers/sausage there upon our arrival. This was very appreciated after a day of driving. Highly recommend :)

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dylla Farms. Could not ask for anything more there. House is very well equipped with everything you'd need. Hospitality apparent right from the start with a welcoming gift of fresh donuts and crackers, cheese, sausage on display for our snacking. Fresh cut roses in vases throughout the house. Liked being away from the city but not too far away. Enjoyed animal sightings out back. Besides the cattle that live there, we saw turkeys, a coyote, and herds of deer. Book this place, you will more than appreciate the stay.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Dylla farmhouse! I am sitting on the most comfortable couch drinking my coffee from the wonderful coffee bar. We have to head home this morning. Wish we could stay longer. It is so wonderful and welcoming. The beds are super comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of really nice towels for showers. We loved the decor. We used the grill to grill out and ate outside on the table and chairs provided. We enjoyed the back yard and the front porch. It was absolutely perfect for our family of 6. We would definitely stay again. Way better than a motel and less expensive. Thank you so much Dylla family. We loved the treats and the roses too. We are so grateful for your family and your willingness to share this home.

We are about 30-minutes from Lackland AFB and about 15-minutes from Randolph AFB.

Being on the east side of San Antonio, you will deal with less traffic congestion and more ease of travel, but still close enough events and venues to enjoy your visit to San Antonio and the surrounding area.
