Great location, lovely little cottage
We came for Thanksgiving with our three teenagers and this cottage was perfect for us. We didn't need to use the car for the 3 days we were there, it is in walking distance of most San Antonio attractions. We cooked a full thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen had everything we needed. The washer and dryer was an added bonus! I also loved the decor, so colorful and bright. I would recommend this place to anyone!
This property was in the perfect location and immaculate. It was close to river walk and we walked several days and nights to enjoy. It is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a night in as well. We were happy with all the amenities and our favorite little perk was the beer and chips and salsa that was left out for us as we arrived at 10:30pm. I would highly recommend this property if your child is graduating from Lackland. My son was able to chill out for awhile and we all enjoyed a nice dinner together. It is also super close to the airport and base. Thank you for the great time.
Great house in a great location
Very welcoming and clean home close to Riverwalk. Walked to downtown daily and sometimes multiple times a day. Very few homes (if any) closer to Downtown San Antonio than this one. Great place to stay!
My two sisters and I stayed at this home for a long weekend. We found it very comfortable and close to the River Walk. Most of the time we walked but if needed, everything is only a short Uber ride away.
Loved the little touches such as cold beer in the fridge—thanks, Gretchen! We enjoyed the outdoor space immensely!
Beautiful and comfortable
This home was perfect for our family. Carla and Gretchen’s attention to detail is wonderful. The house is clean and comfortable and there is an outdoor space perfect for drinking coffee and conversing. It is close to many attractions and restaurants. There were coffee pods and snacks in the kitchen, perfect after a long day of travel. The kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of towels in the bathroom as well as a washer and dryer! We would highly recommend staying here.
