About Carlos

Hello! My name is Carlos; owner and founder of SA Vacay (San Antonio Vacation Rental Homes). I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. My wife Stephanie and I have 6 children; 4 boys and and 2 girls!

I am a God-fearing, bible believing Christian and seek to glorify God with this home and our commitment to service towards all of our guests. I am one of the deacons at Grace Community Church of San Antonio (www.gccsatx.com & www.illbehonest.com). If you are looking for a church to visit while in San Antonio, we would be glad to have you and your family!

I enjoy working from home where my children are home-schooled. My wife enjoys gardening and raising her chickens; she wants a goat but I don't know about that. :-) I enjoy riding my bike at the San Antonio Mission Trails, Down Town, Riverwalk, and some other places, including a little off-road mountain biking.

Carlos purchased this house in 2003

Why Carlos chose San Antonio

Well I didn’t choose San Antonio, God chose it for me 40 years ago. Oblivious to how great our city is, I spent most of my teenage & early 20’s hoping to travel to other cities and for an opportunity to experience life anywhere but San Antonio. The Lord saved me when I was 25 yrs old and I realized that there was nothing new under the sun. Wanting to run from my home town would have been nothing more than chasing after the wind.

In 2001, I started working for a service contractor which provided me an opportunity to travel. I would always stay in a box (hotel), and if there was any leisure time, I would get in the rental car and explore the city’s scenery. It was nice but lacking a personalized experience. I wanted to know more about the city than just its buildings and scenery. I wanted to know the people and the experience of being a local; or at least feel like one for a few days. I thought, if I could stay amongst the people, then perhaps I could meet interesting people, share the gospel of Jesus Christ and build friendships.

What an opportunity we all have when renting a Vacation Rental Home! I once did a site visit at Disney World in Orlando Florida for a contract. There was an area in Downtown Disney that could convert your child’s hair, makeup and attire to become a princess for the day. Well you could become a San Antonian for a few days or even a few weeks when staying in one of my vacation homes! Come get to know the neighbors, community, and my fellow San Antonian’s!

San Antonio is a beautiful city that has preserved its history and provides an aura of nostalgia. The Alamo, Missions, Riverwalk, Market Square, King William Historical District, La Villita, etc…, make the city attractive, romantic and family oriented. The city is vast and widespread with amenities such as countless golfing venues, shops, theme parks (Sea World & Six Flags), museums, nature parks, zoo, sporting events, horseback riding, bike trails, swimming, shooting, hunting, etc...

What makes this house unique

For the square footage, this property has a great layout! The driveway has been expanded to accommodate up to 4 vehicles and a large concrete patio has been added in the back yard. The children can enjoy play in the fully-enclosed backyard or at the park next door; park features high-end playground equipment. Sea World is located so close that you can hear screaming from the rollercoaster when outside. Access and distance to nearby necessities is all within 5 minutes.

Amazing Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful. We had all the conveniences of home right there in Texas. We flew to San Antonio from Los Angeles to watch our son graduate from BMT. My nerves were frazzled, all I wanted was to hold my son. We arrived at the home after dark and Carlos was there to greet us with a tour and a map of the area and surrounding attraction. (Sea World, River Walk..) The house was clean and ready to be lived in. My husband, two sons, my parents and myself had more than enough room to spread out and relax during the time times. The park next door was a god sent since my boys often had energy to burn. The house has a load of board games for evening fun as well! Carlos checked in on us and even allowed us to extend our check out hour until 5 pm so we could spend more time with our son in the comfort of a home instead of a restaurant.

Thank you Carlos for making a hectic time one of peace and relaxation.

Perfect location and a cozy home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Carlos' vacation home to anyone looking to stay in the San Antonio area. The home was extremely clean, had all the amenities needed, and was located in a nice, quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. A huge plus for us was the quick trip to Sea World! We were also traveling with four children...ranging from ages 3-11...so the neighborhood park right next door to the home was a lifesaver! This home was perfect for two families! Lots of room and we never felt crowded. Carlos was the perfect host. His communication with me prior to our stay was outstanding. He was willing to accommodate all of our needs. He also checked on us during our stay. We plan to stay again during future trips to San Antonio!

Great house for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this vacation rental. The house had everything we needed. Having the park next door is a bonus feature. And the house is close to everything you might need. Grocery stores, restaurants and attractions.

Great family-friendly place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying in this house. The kids' room has this great little alcove with a love seat that was perfect for reading bedtime stories to our 3 year old son. There were also cool Lego-like building blocks and other toys in the closet for him to play with. The couches in the living room are deep and comfy, perfect for plopping and relaxing when you're tired. After putting our son to bed, we would sit on the back patio in the lovely chairs provided, and sip a glass of wine while listening to the Texas night bugs (had it been a little warmer, we would have definitely used the barbecue). The kitchen had enough plates, dishes, pots, and pans that we were able to make dinner for extended family, and having the nice, well-maintained playground next door was priceless. It only took 10 minutes to get downtown. What I also appreciated was that when we arrived, we were greeted by the owner's associate, Anita, who gave us a tour of the house and answered any questions we had. I'd stay there again, and would recommend it to anyone who has small children and really needs some room to spread out.
