Our home sits on a one acre wooded lot, about half of which is fenced in. There are many deer, which roam freely about. Corn is provided and you are welcomed to throw some around and see how many you can attract into the backyard. They love the corn but can be shy on occasion. Our home is in an older home in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood where strolls are really enjoyable. Our home may not have the new home or latest design features, but it is a charming, comfortable and roomy home that we hope you will enjoy and feel relaxed in.

Our home has a beautiful, extra-large sunroom where you can take a snooze indoors under the giant shade trees. Or spend the night under the stars.

Our home offers lots of cozy spots to curl up with a good book, play games, surf the web, watch a movie or listen to music. Two outdoor decks and a patio offer great outdoor spots for relaxing or enjoying the outdoors. Feel like grillin’ out? There’s a gas pit ready to be fired up. There are two large playsets in the yard ready for the kids to enjoy.

Four of the TV’s have cable channels and Netflix provided for your enjoyment. Wireless internet throughout the house. The 5th tv is in the kid's room and has a dvd player. Some family type dvd's are provided.

We have provided coffee and tea for getting started on your day.

BEST VACATION STAY EVER! Why I will never stay at a hotel again.

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our pre-Christmas vacation and just fell in love with this home.

Our host was amazing, she had everything labeled perfectly on remotes/appliances/lights so we didn't have to figure things out on our own. She also had a binder of nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and menus which came in very handy.

We had a family of 11, 2 kids and the rest adults..and we fit very comfortably and everyone had their own space.

The backyard was our favorite, my girls enjoyed playing on the swing sets and running around in the beautifully fenced-in yard...and the adults enjoyed lounging in the sun room, watching the kids play and the friendly deer walk around.

The neighborhood was quiet and friendly, perfect for jogging in the morning and we were not far from Downtown and various attractions.

We want to thank the hosts for opening their home to our busy family who truly needed this peaceful was one of our most treasured vacations to date.

Great home in quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Rosie's home was perfect for my extended family of nine. All 4 bedrooms were great for our family. Rosie was a perfect host, who met us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of her home. She texted me the following day just to make sure everything was going well. The backyard is huge and the kids had a wonderful time playing on the swing sets for hours. We spread some deer feed provided by Rosie and sure enough we had daily visits from deer that we enjoyed watching from the large sunroom. I highly recommend this home for an extended stay in San Antonio, about a ten minute drive to the airport and very close to popular attractions around the city. Thank you again Rosie!

We spent Thanksgiving here and it was absolutely perfect for us! Rosie is a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed. The house was clean and comfy. We loved the sunroom and enjoyed seeing the deer. The kitchen was well equipped and I had no issues at all cooking our Thanksgiving meal there. We would stay here again! Loved it!

Rosie's Place (AKA "Deer Lodge") was perfect for our women's weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our host, Rosie, was responsive, accommodating and welcoming. She clearly takes pride in her home, and provided a thorough tour in spite of our tight schedule.

The house is large and open. While we could have had more folks stay with us, it was great for four, with each having our own bedroom. The best part of the property is the large enclosed sun room that spans the entire length of the house and looks over the yard, into a field...right in the middle of the city!

We enjoyed coffee in the mornings in the sun room, and welcomed the deer that are friendly and beautiful. In the evenings, the room was perfect for gathering, playing games and just catching up. Ceiling fans and outdoor lighting made it comfortable regardless of the weather.

The home's decor and finishes are somewhat dated, but everything is in good repair with signage throughout on how to use the televisions, lighting, etc. The kitchen is well-stocked with essential kitchen ware. There are games and dvds, though we did not avail ourselves of them.

We are most grateful for Rosie's hospitality, which allowed us to reconnect within our group of seven longtime was the perfect setting for us, and is conveniently located to all of the event sites and restaurants we frequented. Thank you for sharing your home!!!

Beautiful back yard, peaceful and comfortable spot for a great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with groomsmen for wedding weekend, and it was a perfect spot to relax and enjoy great company. Lots of beds and plenty of room for a large group. Saw many deer in back yard and had very relaxing time on lovely back porch. Owners have thought of everything and had all information laid out for us. Thanks so much!

Perfect Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

Rosie's house was perfect for our family reunion in San Antonio, and we will certainly use this property again upon our return to the city. The highlight was certainly the large air conditioned sun room overlooking a spacious yard with frequent visits from the deer population.

Beyond that feature, the neighborhood was quiet and safe, the house had every appliance/cooking utensil/toiletry/towel need we required for the weekend, and had easy to use wifi that was able to keep up with 10+ personal devices.

As far as the location in the city, we were only a $25 Uber XL (the bigger vehicle size) trip from the Riverwalk, and I cannot remember yet it was well under $20 for a standard sized car. So no issues there.

I highly recommend this property!
