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.
Roberto Gonzalez purchased this estate in 2005
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.
Quiet, safe, and peaceful. Perfect for family gatherings.
Pro's - Nice area, gated & quiet subdivision, easy to get to various highways, and shopping. The house layout and yard is great for large groups. The air conditioner wasn't working properly but Roberto was extremely quick to respond.
Con's - I read previous reviews, as recent as a month before our trip, that the place was clean and well maintained. We did not feel that was the case at all. The decking had numerous holes (some large enough to sprain an ankle), the swing by the fish pond was totally ripped, the cushion on the lawn furniture were dirty (as well as the furniture itself) and the stuffing was coming out so much I thought it was an animal sitting on the chair. The inside of the house was dusty & dirty, refrigerator, microwave, and stove light/fan cover was VERY dirty.... to the point of I wasn't sure if the sheets had been changed. Needless to say I loaded the dishwasher & did laundry before I came in contact with anything. The dining room chairs had the plastic shipping covers draped over the sides - instead of just taking the extra time to remove. I rented numerous houses through VRBO and this was the most disappointed I've been. Just needs some serious deep cleaning & maint!
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.
the listing description of this house regarding the location, layout and etc. was accurate. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The owner was very nice, provided good service and overall it was a beautiful home.
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!
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.
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!
Conveniently located near Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Lackland AFB, The Riverwalk and Shopping Centers.
