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.

Roberto Gonzalez purchased this estate in 2005

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 estate unique

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

Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay at this house was awesome! The house is beautiful, neighborhood is amazing, and the homeowner was more than accommodating the entire time. We had a horrible experience with a different homeowner canceling our reservation the day before we were expected to arrive and Roberto welcomed us at the last minute even when there weren't many hotel rooms left in the whole city because of events going on that weekend. It's a bit of a drive from the air force base where we were going but super close to Sea World and not too far from the River Walk. The house had more than enough sheets, pillows, and blankets for our family and it was great to have all our kids in the backyard for a BBQ. The kids also loved the parakeets and coy pond. Overall a wonderful experience.

Great vacation

The property was very nice and the area was peaceful. Sister's helping SISJAHS is my non profit organization and we were celebrating our 2nd year anniversary. The owner was very pleasant to communicate with, and I will be returning again.

Beautiful house inside and out

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful with a large front and back yard. The kitchen was supplied with almost everything you would need except perishables. The floor plan worked perfectly for our 4 families while we visited Sea World.

Property was roomy and the location was great. Very close to Sea World. The home was large enough for 11 of us and very well stocked. We had a great week.

We had a wonderful time with our group of 12 at this beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and well kept! Everything inside was clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The backyard, fireplace, grill was an awesome hangout for our big group! A few things could use updating like the iron, coffee maker but other than that everything was perfect! In a nice neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, grocery stores within 5-10 minutes. In a great location to easily get to Six Flags, Riverwalk, etc. Would definitely recommend, as well as stay again.
