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.

Review of Garden Ridge vacation rental.

  • of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. With our plans for the area the location was perfect and allowed for easy access to everywhere we wanted to go. We had more than enough room (at least 3 rooms we didn't even use!) and had plenty of space to spread out and relax, although everyone seemed to like hanging out around the large island in the kitchen. The time of year we went really didn't lend itself to using the pool, but the spa was used a couple times and very nice. There was every amenity we could ask for, and appreciated the details of having even the little things like handsoap in the bathrooms, dishwasher soap and laundry soap. We shopped for groceries at the nearby HEB & Walmart but appreciated not having to also buy paper towels and such. We also enjoyed the local wildlife which visited us so frequently. Very nice, quiet neighborhood, and beautiful home. We would most certainly stay at this property again and recommend it to friends/family.

Wonderful place for family get togethers!!

  • 5 of 5

We have never rented a vacation home before and our first experience with this home was truly wonderful from beginning to end. We spent Christmas with family coming in from all over. They were just as happy with the home as we were…especially the grandchildren (teenagers) with the media room upstairs. They could break away from the “old folks” and play games and watch movies. The house is spacious, beautifully furnished with lots of room. Everything was clean and ready for our family to step in and enjoy Christmas together. The kitchen was gorgeous and had all the utensils needed for cooking and serving the meals. The kitchen was a great place for just talking or playing games in the breakfast nook and of course the den area was great for watching TV or the family opening their Christmas gifts! The neighborhood is lovely especially the deer that visit everyday. All we needed was snow and the Christmas scene would have been perfect!

The website was excellent with photos of the house, the layout and the list of what is provided. That helped us to make decisions on what we needed to bring with us from home which wasn’t much except recipes and food. Jeff (owner) was very helpful and promptly answered any of our questions. Excellent customer service!

San Antonio is a great place to visit but like any city, it is busy especially at Christmas. It was great to go back to this home in a peaceful neighborhood and get away from the crowds after shopping. The house was fantastic. We would highly recommend this home for anytime of the year!

Great place for a fun and relaxing family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

Property exceeded our expectations. Clean and well maintained. Jeff was very responsive and answered all our questions promptly. Kitchen was large and well equipped to handle all our cooking needs for the large Christmas dinner party. Rooms were large enough to accommodate all guests but still had a wonderful cozy feeling. Can't wait to lease again !

Wedding Bells!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group with plenty of space. The kitchen allowed for many of us to cook and visit together. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and took a walk. Our kids loved seeing the deer up close and personal too! Great place for large families to stay together!

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.
