Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in San Antonio - 21036 Cedar Branch

4 large bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 6 TVs, sleeps 14; beautiful pool with spa

Enjoy the comforts of a large house with entertainment electronics on the inside, wireless throughout the property, and a lovely shaded backyard with a beautiful pool. This house is right for a large family or a few families who would like to vacation together--whether you want to hang out on the property or venture out to explore. It's in a lovely neighborhood where the deer roam freely through large lots covered with oaks. While you're situated serenely on a 3/4 acre, tree-covered lot in our quiet community on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, you're only 2 or 3 miles--depending on what direction you take--from two different Walmarts. So, we’re not far from civilization--if you know what I mean. We’re located a couple of miles from the 1604 Loop of San Antonio as well as Interstate 35, the corridor linking San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, and Austin. You're in a prime location to see San Antonio and the greater area.

Our Home is a 4BR/3BA, 15-year-old executive home located in an outer northeast suburb of San Antonio. This spacious house has a little over 4000 sq ft of living space. There are open living areas downstairs with all four bedrooms and a bonus/media room upstairs. There are 6 TVs (incl 50' flat screen) with one in each bedroom. Most of the home is carpeted except for tile through the bathrooms, kitchen, and traffic areas. We enjoy a large park-like, fenced backyard where we have a beautiful lagoon pool and heated spa. A large circle drive and garage facilitates ample parking. The home has wireless internet, and one old computer available if you don't bring your own laptop. This was our primary residence for a long time and is equipped accordingly.

San Antonio: A Vacation Destination: So much to see and do... It's become a vacation destination for more than just Texans--if that wasn't enough. While this list is far from exhaustive, here’s a few things conveniently located nearby:

10 mins to Natural Bridge Caverns and Wildlife Ranch; 20 mins to New Braunfels, Schlitterbahn, nearest river tubing, historic Gruene; 25 mins to SA International Airport; 30 mins to Downtown, Riverwalk, Sunset Station, Alamo, Six Flags; 45 mins to Sea World, San Marcos tubing and popular San Marcos shopping outlets; 60 mins to Austin or charming Fredericksburg.

More Info: We can provide you more pix by email of the house and property, to include bathrooms and bedrooms not shown in the ad. We'll also be happy to give recommendations on what to see and do on your stay.

About Jeff Keef

I (Jeff) retired from the US Air Force in 2010; my wife (Gale) continues to teach HS English part time. We've been married since 1984--to each other! Because our three children have flown the coop, we are now empty nesters and are spending time chasing them and their families.

Jeff Keef purchased this house in 2007

Why Jeff Keef chose San Antonio

It's the right location--on the edge of San Antonio near I-35 in the direction of New Braunfels and Austin. I fell in love with the neighborhood when I started looking for a place to live following the completion of my USAF career and our residence on base. The property was perfect for my family of older kids who frequently entertained friends at home.

What makes this house unique

A quiet, large oak-covered neighborhood where deer roam freely, but so conveniently located to all that San Antonio and New Braunfels have to offer. I have never lived anywhere quite like this neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I remembered some fond childhood memories when we pulled up and saw all the deer sitting in your yard. I remember deer roaming the neighborhood when we lived in Deerwood Estates in San Marcos. We loved sitting out by the pool (yes, the cool temps didn't scare off the kids) and having plenty of room for everyone. Thanks again for sharing your home and allowing us to rent it. It is beautiful. What a wonderful neighborhood.

More Than I Expected

  • out of 5
I was nervous going into this since it was our first time trying VRBO but as a family of 5 and needing two hotel rooms this was a practical option. It was within 5 minutes of my brother, convenient to shopping, dining and entertainment yet we felt like we were in the country. The house gave us individual space, allowed us to cook and relax. My kids loved the pool and yard. Jeff was always responsive before, during and after our stay. We never had an issue getting a response and he is very reasonable and accommodating. HIGHLY recommend this home and the owner.

Very safe and comfortable

  • 5 out of 5
We were very happy with the surrounding neighborhood. Very quiet and safe. Although we were very close to shopping, restaurants, freeways, once we got back to the house it felt like we were secluded and could relax and watch the deer.

Amazing Home!

  • out of 5
We frequently rent homes for vacations but this is hands down the best one ever! We especially enjoyed the beautiful pool and spa. I honestly can't think of a single negative. We had two small children in our group so the toys were a nice touch. The house was spotless and welcoming at the same time. This is definitely a great house for large family groups and families with small children!

Peaceful, Quiet Retreat with Room for a Big Family

  • 4 out of 5
The most enjoyed part of the house was the beautiful swimming pool. The whole family spent much of the day relaxing out there. We had ample room inside for our guests, with good amenities. The only improvements needed are an easier way to control the air conditioner, and definitely a new coffeemaker.

Owner's Response: Yep, the thermostats are fairly complex and can get you into trouble if you don't know what you're doing. That's why we advise in the house manual to just give us a call if you'd like them adjusted which we can do immediately via the internet. We'll get that coffeemaker tuned up so it's brewing faster. Glad you had a good time despite these little inconveniences.

My family and I meet once a year in San Antonio for my father's birthday, this year we stayed at this property and I can say that is one of/if not the best! great location! my sons loved all the deer in the area, beautiful to watch and fun to feed. It was great to walk in the mornings thru the neighborhood, very quite and peaceful, I would definitely recommend this place and hope to visit it again!

This place is AMAZING!!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a 14 member crew of deer to welcome us!! They came to visit everday and we enjoyed feeding them figs from the trees in the backyard-delicious for breakfast too. The house was beautiful with plenty of rooms and TVs and movies to enjoy and the location was perfect to enjoy everything San Antonio and surrounding cities have to offer-could not have asked for easier access to loop and interstate. The pool and spa were just what we needed to cool down and relax after a hectic day at Seaworld!! We will forever remember this vacation because part of our family will be going to Eastern Europe to be missionaries and this place was ideal for the send-off. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!!

Car: recommended

This home accesses the best of two regions: the San Antonio greater area and the Texas Hill Country. It literally sits on the edge of both. You'll be close to major roads to get you in/out of San Antonio and to its surrounding areas. No doubt, you've already noted that there is a lot to see and do in this area which makes it the Texas vacation destination.

Golf: Bring your sticks. Plenty of great golfing in and around San Antonio, and better yet--it's year round.
