About Gloria L. Piña

My name is Gloria Piña. I grew up in this house and my parents gave me this house in 2010 to keep them in a Personal Care Home. My dad passed away shortly after giving me the house, however, my mom is 90 years old and is still in the Personal Care Home. My husband, Mike and I renovated the house in 2010 and rented it for 2 years to a young couple. We have fixed it up to make it a Vacation Rental due to its prime central location. The photo above is us at Fiesta. Fiesta is a 10 day event that occurs every year in San Antonio the third week of April. I was born and raised in San Antonio and there is a lot to do and see. In fact, my husband and I stay downtown twice a year -- at Fiesta and in September, during JazzSAlive festival. I have worked with my brother in law to make the house as cozy and home like as possible for all to enjoy.

Gloria L. Piña purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

Great place, great location

  • 4 of 5

The place was good with an older feel. Everything is clean and well maintained just a little on the old side. The location is great as you are only a 10 minute drive, including parking, from the airport, Fort Sam Houston, grocery store and the river walk. It accommodated my wife, daughter and parents very well. Also, Gloria was super helpful and got a pack and play to the place for us. I would stay there again if I were to visit San Antonio.

Three day stay at San Antonio

  • 4 of 5

We arrived Wednesday night. Streets to the house where very narrow and in some places it only one car fits. The next morning when we woke up we saw a very nice area with lots of trees and a nice back yard. I didn't realize how close everything was to this location. A river, park, San Antonio Zoo and Chinese garden are just around the corner. We enjoyed our stay. The floor was a little dirty in the house and needed mapping.
