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 South Texas

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.

Parents Surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary Party

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our surprise party we threw for my parents 50th anniversary! We had children and grandchildren and the house's layout was roomy and very accommodating for our party with 25 family members, although only 12 stayed at the house!

We will definitely consider this house for future get togethers.

We are thinking a winter trip will be more enjoyable for enjoying the outdoor patio/grill/fireplace. The summer heat in San Antonio was a bit brutal but we truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house for any number!

Beautiful, Relaxing stay at San Antonio "Retreat"

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat was a great, relaxing home. It was a most pleasant experience. We were a party of 8 with one toddler. There was room for everyone to sleep comfortably and enough bathrooms so no one had to wait to bathe and get dressed. The master bedroom and bathroom were amazing. The backyard with its big deck and outdoor kitchen allowed us to have a great cook out one of the evenings of our stay. We enjoyed the backyard just as much as the inside. It was so relaxing to get up and go out there and drink coffee with the family. We would definitely stay here again.
