About Roberto Gonzalez

I purchased this property in 2005 with the intentions on making it my retiring home. I designed and installed all the outdoor features of this home during the 8 years I lived in it. I spend the last 8 years making the Retreat a paradise to enjoy with family and friends. I come from a large family (11 siblings) and have many family members that visited me during that time. The retreat offered us the perfect gathering pace for family groups. Now I want to share my house with visitors to enjoy what The Retreat has to offer.

Why Roberto Gonzalez chose San Antonio

I bough this property because it was in a secluded gated community where the hustle and bustle of the city can be forgotten, but still be near a large cosmopolitan city like San Antonio.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, safe, and peaceful. Perfect for family gatherings.

Loved this house.

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great time. This house was beautiful and very spacious. Kids could play in the backyard. Only had 2 TV so that made it a little rough for everyone to watch their shows but is the only issue we had. House was very well stocked & only 15 minutes away from seaworld.

Great Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Property was great and met the needs for all of our families that stayed. Plenty of space inside and outside for all to enjoy. We were very pleased with the home. Also, it was indeed very close to Sea World, and the drive to other parts of San Antonio (ie-Riverwalk, missions, Doseum, etc.) were not bad at all. Thanks for a great few days!

Fantastic!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I enjoyed our Easter Holiday Weekend @ this wonderful Cozy Property. They had everything we needed from dishes, to towels, & extra blankets, & pillows. The front and backyard are beautiful.. very nice and neat gated community. My husband one night cooked out some steaks while enjoying the backyard. They also had a little pond w/fish which my 2 little ones enjoyed feeding. Also the property is very convenient if ur planning a trip to Seaworld it is like 5 minutes away. All in all I recommend Mr. Gonzalez property to everyone that wants to spend a nice get away from home.

Thank you again for have giving my family and I the opportunity to stay in this wonderful home.

Beautiful, spacious property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience with our stay at the Retreat! It was a beautiful, clean and spacious home that accommodated our party of 8 adults very well. Roberto was great to work with and promptly addressed any questions or concerns we had. I would highly recommend this home to any large group who is looking for a place to stay in SA!

Open concept with lots of room for entertaining and making memories!

  • 5 of 5

For our first time renting a house for a family vacation I can honestly say this property met all of our expectations. The house was very spacious, clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. Not to mention the back yard was huge and very warming as well. It provided a lot of room for the kids to run around and burn off energy as well as a great atmosphere to host a cook out. The property owner was very welcoming and very attentive to all our questions and concerns. I must say we were all pleased with all aspects of our trip/stay and will definitely be returning back to this property in the near future.
