Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in San Antonio - 9331PG

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 - 9, allow up to 14

Attractive home, conveniently situated between San Antonio's Major Theme Park Destinations, Sea World of San Antonio and Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

Leisure Living: Spend time with the family, friends or just your significant other in this cozy home. Make the most of the quiet, casual atmosphere and enjoy sleeping in, reading a book, watching television, or socializing with others in your party. If your traveling with children, don't worry about an environment filled with breakables and unnecessary clutter, this home is simple, yet stylish.

Indoor Activities: Enjoy all the modern technologies here. Watch the big game in full HD on the flat screen or enjoy a movie from the local Red Box in blue-ray. Whatever your viewing pleasure may be, you are sure to find it with over a hundred channels to choose from.

Stay plugged in with all your friends and family via social networking websites via hi-speed wireless internet access. Connect using your smart phone, laptop, or other portable wireless device.

Kids and adults alike can enjoy endless hours of fun and laughter while playing various board games.

Outdoor Activities: Park: My vacation home is located in the beautiful Northwest side of San Antonio. There is a nearby recreational park area with soccer/football field, tennis courts and playground for the whole family to enjoy.

Barbeque: Adults can bar-b-que on the large outdoor deck while the kids play ball or tag in the enclosed backyard. The deck is equipped with a large picnic table and barbecue grill.

Outdoor Exercise: For those who enjoy walking and/or jogging, enjoy a jog around the neighborhood or at the nearby park. If you have your own rackets, enjoy the tennis courts located at the park.

NOTE: Please make a special note about our sleeping accommodations: We have three bedrooms. The Master bedroom features a beautiful King size bed. The second Bedroom has a full size bed and a small child's bed which is perfect for a small family in the group. The third bedroom features two sets of bunk beds (for a total of 4 twin beds) and a built in desk area for coloring, reading or using a laptop or iPad. If you would like, you can bring in your own air mattress; the family room is large enough to fit a Queen size air mattress. Although I ALLOW up to 14 guests in my vacation home, I don't claim to have enough beds for everyone. If you value having your entire party stay together (rather than in multiple hotel rooms), and are able to work with the provided accommodations, then WELCOME HOME!

About Carlos

My name is Carlos. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. My wife Stephanie and I have 5 children; 4 boys and a girl.

I am a God-fearing, bible believing Christian and seek to glorify God with this home and my service towards all my 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 homeschooled. 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.

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

This property is perfect for staging vacations that will include visiting San Antonio's theme parks, both Sea World and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. The two sets of bunk beds are always a winner for the kids. Beautiful large deck with barbecue pit is excellent for gatherings and large family dinners!!!

Great house and great owner

  • 5 of 5

We actually stayed here in Nov. of 2013 over thanksgiving, better late than never with a review. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood with shopping and groceries just minutes away. As a bonus it was just a half mile away from my brother's house who we were visiting.

It's the perfect size with three bedrooms, two for the adults and one with bunkbeds for the kids and a nice sized living and dining area with lots of seating. The two car attached garage is nice and clean with plenty of space to park your car and stow and bikes or anything else you brought for some outdoor fun.

The house is well maintained with a grIll, nice sized yard and plenty of space to entertain. We found out my uncle and cousin were in town while we were there, and there was ample space to have an additional 7 people over for a BBQ one day.

The house is fit with wif, dvd playern cablen and netflix so you've got plenty of options for entertainment and it has a nice sized kitchen for cooking in, with all the utensils you might need and a slow cooker too.

While we were there the house had some issues with the heat, being that it was the first time it had been turned on that year. We had heat, just a bit inconsistent. The owner was very helpful and more than accommodating in getting the issues worked through. These things happen sometimes and we were very understanding and in no way faulted him for it. After a few days the heat was working again without any problems. Even with the heater issues we were still comfortable and plenty warm.

We will definitely stay here again when coming to San Antonio to visit relatives and are looking forward to our next visit.

Great house for family

  • 5 of 5

We visited San Antonio with our 4 year old son to see family and friends. The house was perfect for our immediate family and for the visitors we had over for meals. It had everything we needed and then some, including toys and games that our son was very excited about. He loved the bunk bed room, and we loved being able to come back to a relaxing environment instead of a cramped hotel room after sightseeing for the day. We utilized the kitchen daily daily and having the washer and dryer was great since we packed light for the plane. Great value and Carlos was very hospitable and accommodating.

Excellent Location, Comfortable, Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We spent a full week in the house preparing for the youngest daughter's wedding. There was plenty of room and the location was perfect. Carlos is gracious and accommodating and made our stay enjoyable. Kitchen had everything we could need and was used, daily. The large patio was a favorite gathering place. Thank you, Carlos, for allowing us the opportunity to stay here.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

We've rented from this landlord at a different location before, so we were not surprised that he gave this home the same attention to detail. Its a cozy home in a fairly quiet community. There is a nice subdivision park at walking distance fro. The house suitable for toddlers. If you go a few extra miles you'll get to on of san antonio's beautiful public parks with a fairly new playground and trails for the runner on vacation to enjoy. Good location comforts of home almost make you not want to go back to the grind!
