The famous River-walk and Alamo are only a 15-minute drive from the house and offer a great combination of dining, nightlife, historic sights and more. The San Marcos Outlets, one of the largest outlet malls in America are only 30 minutes away while The Forum, one of San Antonio’s most popular malls is a mere 10 minute drive from the house.

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
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
We stayed at this property during a professional conference with children and adults. Florence made herself available for any needs we had, and was very helpful by leaving clear instructions to use things in the home. We didn't spend much time outside, but the patio and yard are meticulously maintained as well. Very good experience overall, and would certainly stay here again if we go back to San Antonio!
We have a family of five and regularly rent houses when vacationing. This home was well-suited to large or small families and was stocked with toiletries, bedding, and non-perishable food. This made our arrival much easier. The property is well maintained and clean. The owners clearly love the property and have made it unique and homey. There were a couple of small items that needed repair that the owner informed us about. This wasn't a problem, but the owner is available by phone at any time. The master bath, patio areas and balcony are quite nice. The kids enjoyed the neighborhood pool. The area is residential with several small, good restaurants, and is close enough to downtown that travel isn't a problem. We enjoyed the stay and would definitely stay here again.
The home is not in the nicest part of town but it is in a gated community. It is not located right near anything so you will need to drive. Alamo/River walk is 25 min away as was Fiesta Texas. Flo was very responsive and helped when we had problems.
Pros: home was well-appointed for our needs, the upstairs balcony became a place of solitude each morning, the half bath downstairs came in very handy, very nice master bedroom, the ability to use the pool just up the street was great for our little ones- they really enjoyed it. The back porch was also a great place to sit and relax. Very nice dining area and large table that proved quite accommodating to our group. Keyless entry was convenient.
Cons: very low water pressure in shower of master bath- it's a good thing the shower head is high and has gravity working on its side. No garbage disposal in kitchen sink (for a home as nice as this one I would have thought it would have one), grill did not work and from the looks of the burnt out pan etc... it simply needs to be replaced. Do not lock/use the gate to the courtyard -it is very temperamental and wouldn't unlock several times.
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.
