About the property

BMT Graduation, close to base, *POOL* 2 miles from SEA WORLD.

This single story home away from home is from our Air Force family to yours. We have been to BMT training and our Airman loved having the comforts of home during his time off base. We are around a 6 min drive to Lackland Air Force and 2 miles to Sea World. There is heavy traffic at the gates on Graduation Day and being so close allows you more time with your Airman. The community is a safe, family friendly, quiet neighborhood and also comes with a Large covered Playground next to a large in ground pool. We have a one car garage equipped with a garage opener, which you will be given. The home was made to feel as comfortable as possible. We use this home strictly for rentals now and tailor it towards BMT Graduates family and comfortability, and many other guests as well. We are aware families will be staying here and kids may also accompany them so we have made some child proof additions to our home. All outlet covers are covered and we provide a pack n play with a set of sheets for you child. We have a large sectional couch with a wide ottoman. The dining rooms seats 6 but we have dish settings for 8. We have a fully stocked kitchen and pride ourselves on helping families save money by cooking home and providing all of the essentials needed. We do provide some toiletries, dish soap, dish detergent, shampoo, body soap, and paper products and towel sets for 8. We provide HD TV on all TVs. Main living room has a 55'' HDTV and both Master bedroom and Queen Bedroom have 32' HD TV's. Wifi available. House is all automatic entry and you are given a key code to get in house and to disarm security alarm. We have a nice covered patio in our backyard with seating for 4. Charcoal grill and grill tools included.

About Erica Ward

My husband and I have been married over 5 years now and we have one beautiful daughter. My brother graduated from the Air Force not to long ago and my entire family and I came out. We rented off the vacation rental site; instead of getting 2 rooms we had an entire house. Our Airman LOVED it!! Our mission is to help all BMT graduates and their families be extremely comfortable during their time away from base. We took all the details from our stay to make your stay great!! We are a family that loves to travel! We are newly discovering all the places that this site can take us. We are excited to let other people share in our home! We have a lot of tips and places to go in San Antonio and we would love to help you!

Erica Ward purchased this house in 2016

Why Erica Ward chose Southside

We chose this property for the type of neighborhood and the closeness to the base. 6 Miles to Lackland Air Force base. This helps when you are headed to graduation and traffic lines back up, you can save time. You also get to spend more time with your Airman as you do not have as far of a drive to drop them off. This house also comes with a Covered Play Ground and a Giant in ground pool. There is sidewalks and the neighborhood is safe and quiet.

What makes this house unique

We have a covered out door patio area with a ceiling fan and seating for 4, we have a reverse osmosis water filter so you can drink straight from the spout. We supply a full kitchen, dish settings for 8, towels settings for 8, but dining room table seats 6. Washer and dryer to clean clothes before leaving or during your stay. We provide plenty of amenities. The decor and comfortability make it feel just like home. Large 55'' HD TV in main room.

Super efficient and convenient 🙌🏼😁

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice and reasonably priced property to stay at for BMT graduation. Location is so close to base. We sat out on the patio one evening and could hear Taps. Basic toiletries, towels, sheets, hair dryer, cooking aids, dishes, grill -this home has everything you need for your stay. Grocery store is minutes away.

Our Airman was able to enjoy a home like environment, get a home cooked meal, relax , and get out of the heat. Erica is quick to answer any question/issue you may have😊� I definitely recommend this home for your BMT celebration weekend!👍�🏼�

Perfect for our BMT stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this so much more than staying in a hotel. We actually cooked Thanksgiving dinner here and our Airman felt right at home! He even had a nap. Only 6 miles from Lackland which was very convenient! Would highly recommend to another BMT family.
