The property is awesome. It's definitely "off the grid" in terms of not being near San Antonio, proper, but easy access.
The photographs are real, but I will add that the photographer is skilled. The home looks massive in the pictures, but is quite a bit smaller when you set foot inside. Not sure where the "4th" bedroom is supposed to be, as there are three bedrooms.
Neither of the outside showers were working. We were informed that prior renters broke them.
Foosball game is missing. We were told that prior renters broke it.
Some of the outdoor furniture has cushions, several pieces did not. We were told that prior renters had ruined them.
Rained heavily one day. Soaked up 2 gallons of water from the hallway, as there are several areas that were leaking. We were told that the owner would have to contact his roofer.
Maintenance guy showed up early morning to start blowing leaves off the patio, and was at the house for several hours. I can respect having to maintain such a big property, but probably better to do when there aren't guests in the home.
Pool was exceptionally cloudy. We were told that the wind and pollen caused this situation. They did have to replace a pump for the filtration system.
The home is otherwise quite solid. Clearly, they have added a bathroom for the third bedroom, and it's huge. Not sure why so much space was built for another bathroom and closet.
Owner is very pleasant and responds to questions promptly.
Honestly, my biggest issue was that I felt the pictures suggested a much more grandiose home, and too many features were broken or absent. Did we enjoy our time there? Yes. Would I return to this particular property? No. Would I rent a different property from this particular owner? Yes.
There are a few items which need to be updated on this property preview for potential renters. The owners were receptive and responsive to our needs when contacted. Previous occupants had been extended renters and had left with some attention needed prior to renters coming in. This is a perfect rental for kids! Completely fenced in, playground, basketball court, trampoline and a soccer field with nets when maintained and repaired. Very quiet neighborhood and not too far from San Antonio. You will need to take any food item you need as there will not even be any salt and pepper on site, or at least that is how we found it. Cabins are a nice addition but for us we found, after our arrival, they were too far from the house for us to feel comfortable with our grandchildren sleeping there, ages 5, 7, and 2 10. Perhaps we are too protective? I would recommend this property however, I would ask lots of questions prior to rental were I to rent this property again and I would.
Very relaxing stay near many local attractions
We really enjoyed our stay at this home. It provides a very relaxing setting and is convenient to many local attractions. We spent a day at Six Flags and another on the River Walk, but spent most of our time relaxing at the house. The outdoor areas are terrific! We would love to return when it is warmer, to take advantage of the great pool! The owner is very responsive.
Overall great experiance hope to go back soon.
Really enjoyed our stay here. We went down for a weekend golf trip. The house was very clean and nice, with the additional cabins this gave us plenty of space and everyone had their own bed. The highlight of our stay was the outdoor patio, cabana, pool and fire pit. The owner of the house was easy to get ahold of and pleasant to deal with. Would recommend this place to anyone and would stay again.
Beautiful place to stay...like a private resort!
I stayed at this home for two weeks with my family and we very much enjoyed our visit. This property is a bit off the beaten path (which we like) and is reasonable driving distance from all of the places we wanted to see, including SA and Austin as well as multiple state parks and other natural areas.
As shown in the photos, this property has a fantastic cabana and pool area with TV's available everywhere! Nothing like watching the World Series from inside the pool! The outdoor space is great with a large wrap around porch and multiple seating areas depending on your needs.
The interior of the home is very nice with a plush master bedroom suite, best for a family so no debate over who stays in the master.
I enjoyed the fact that there are animals on the property...goats and a very persistent chicken who is obviously used to being fed by guests.
The owner was available for any questions we had and once we figured out the front gate to the property (stay close to the railway ties), we didn't need much help as everything was pretty straight forward.
The only slight drawbacks that make this a 4-star rather than a 5-star are the lack of wifi, dishwasher and gas BBQ (the outdoor grill is not great for cooking). But these are minor compared with the joy of waking up to perfect hot weather and a private pool resort.
I would happily stay again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a family style home in Texas!
Did not reflect pictures
Again the pictures did not show the whole background. There was a lot of junk scenery in the background. There was an old run down playground with isolated boards and dangerous nails poking through. Upon arrival, we were met by almost a hundred wasps. They were surrounding the entry and the outdoor furniture. Someone came and sprayed a can on them the next day after complaining. Th ey were still around, but not as many. There are tons of signs that you can not wear your shoes in the house, but the floor is super hard. Upon asking the owner about how to turn on the fountain, there was no response. I asked numerous times. I rejected the cabins because there was rat feces on top of the loft. I would not stay in the cabins. Upon opening the back door the blinds fell off the plastic. I put them back on, but some were so rigged it was useless. There is so much more. The renter needs to be more professional and real. If he was a better renter and didnt falsely advertise, it would be a better place to rent. Pros...the pool is nice, there is a nice cabana but don't sit on the furniture, the house inside is very pretty, and the kids will have fun. There is more negative, but I will leave it at that. The owner should show the real background and not advertise lights and fountains unless prepared to let us use them. We had a good time, but there are definitely issues. The person renting this should do something about the complaints instead of getting angry. It could be a very nice rental if.....
I am sorry you were disappointed during your stay which was never mentioned before. Writing a review after almost 4 months of your stay is not very helpful.
The pictures are real and there a lot of pictures so you can get a feel of the property. The pictures were taken by a professional realtor and my husband. It is a large property (6.5 acres) and of course there areas that look like a ranchette. It is a ranchette home and we keep up with the property the best we can with such a large piece of land.
Our cleaning lady does a great job maintaining the home.
The living area is very well kept and when not rented, my family and friends go there every weekend and we do sit on the outdoor furniture and we do have a great time.
We send pest control and spray once a month, as I stated before being such a large property there are bugs and insects and the wasps were taken care of and then we did send the professionals. The problem is that in the summer months wasps are looking for water so the sprinkler system and pool grab their attention.
I am so sorry about all of your negative comments, the problem is that all the renters that have been so happy have not written reviews.
