About Florence Scrafield

I love spending time in San Antonio. The festive city has so much to offer. I spend my summers up north and love to enjoy part of the winter months in sunny San Antonio playing tennis, riding my bike, puttering in my garden, or just enjoying the perfect climate.

Florence Scrafield purchased this house in 2003

Why Florence Scrafield chose San Antonio

Situated in the heart of San Antonio this home offers easy access to major freeways without being too close to any of them. It is a new street with only 14 properties tucked into a scenic quiet part of the city. I love to walk around the golf course in this friendly neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

This home is on a pie shaped lot with lots of plants and fruit trees (lemon peach apple orange) and a variety of flowering trees and shrubs and palm trees.

The master-bedroom has a two person Jacuzzi with 22 foot ceilings and romantic lighting; while the second floor has a fresh bright feeling with a private marble patio for reading or enjoying that morning coffee. For the avid golfer, it's a short walk to the driving range and putting green. On a quiet morning you can see and hear the golfers on the signature hole, from the second floor balcony!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. We had a wonderful time in San Antonio and having a home to come back to at the end of our busy days was great. We loved the location of your home as well as all of the amenities your home offers. Thank you for keeping the kitchen stocked as we enjoyed several lazy breakfast mornings.



Everything in your home was amazing and the kids really felt comfortable. My 8 year old daughter loved being in your garden and I appreciated that it was completely fenced in. We started giving the baby baths in the jacuzzi tub and he had a blast! My daughter has told me several times that she wants us to buy your home because she loved it so much! Overall, we had a wonderful time and you have helped me earn some serious bragging rights because I did such a great job picking a nice place for us to stay for vacation.

10 out of 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

The facilities at this home are exceptional and there is lots of space for everyone! The home is in a great location - close to many attractions, stores etc. The home and the yard were immaculate and very well designed. We loved that the master bedroom is located on the opposite side of the home from the bedrooms on the second level. Lots of pamphlets, maps and tourist attraction information was available in the butlers pantry. All instructions were very clear and contained everything we needed to know. It was nice to have basic supplies already in the home (just replace what you use and leave what you don’t use for the next visitors). The owner (Florence) was so friendly and helpful and was only a phone call or email away if we had any questions. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with others Florence, it's a very special place. We so enjoyed both in the inside and outside of your home that we are planning our next visit already! See you soon ...this will be the only place we ever stay at while visiting San Antonio!!!

Perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5

Had the best vacation ever. This home was very clean and it was easy to find things. It is very well equipped; lots of linens and towels, many extras in the kitchen, spices and condiments available, three eating areas plus the outdoor patio table, and several sets of dishes to pick from. I loved the ice maker. My husband and I can't wait to go back.

San Antonio vacation

  • 3 of 5

Attractive property, convenient location and the home (especially kitchen) equipped with anything one could possibly need. Since we used the home only for showers, sleeping and morning coffee, I cannot comment on the numerous entertainment devices provided. The only issues my group of 5 experienced was that the upstairs was cold, the downstairs warm and it took forever for hot water to reach the showers.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your taking the time to provide feedback. I'm so sorry you had temperature problems and didn't call me for help. The instructions for adjusting the thermostat for each floor is in my renters guide, but I will revisit my document and see what I can improve. I truly want all my guests to love their stay in my home and find everything exceeding their expectations.

Our Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

The home was gated and secure. It was very quiet (important to us ), and very well-decorated.

The home was fairly convenient to the major attractions in the area. The only real negatives:

Two of the beds were pretty uncomfortable. We found no alarm clocks and no Kleenex. The

ice-maker didn't seem to work. Not sure whether DVD players were available for our use...

since we only inadvertently located one. In spite of these negatives, it was overall a good

experience, and we would consider staying there again...should we be in the San Antonio

area in the future.

Amazing property and exceptional service.

  • 5 of 5

I can't thank Florence enough for accommodating my family and I at such short notice. My husband had to be rushed for an emergency surgery which was 2 hours away from our home. Florence was welcoming and easy to communicate with making a smooth transaction. The property itself is beautiful, it is quiet & safe and in a great location close to shops and attractions. Again Thank you so much for what you did for our family. We have already recommended your place to our family and friends.

San Antonio is a golfers paradise, with too many golf courses to count. The shopping is just as endless for those looking for that something special. Don't forget the Rodeo and Stock Show in February, tubing down the river or Schlitterbaun or Landa Park in summer and Sea World anytime. Horseback riding, tennis, visiting the Zoo, Art galleries or botanical gardens are also memorable activities.

Other Activities: Stock Show and Rodeo, Morgans Wonderland, Toyota field professional soccer Wine tasting tours.

Golf: Golf mecca. Everything from par 3 courses to Pro Resort courses. Dozens of courses to choose from. This home is on Northern Hills golf course which has been described as easy-medium fairways with very difficult greens.
