Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Alamo Heights

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths. one level living space/ 2400 sq feet.

Our home is centrally located in San Antonio in the upscale suburb of Terrell Hills. It is only minutes north of downtown and the Alamo, River walk, Alamo Dome and other tourist attractions. The San Antonio Airport is only ten minutes to the North and you could easily walk the block and a half to the University of the Incarnate Word.

The world renowned San Antonio ZOO, Brackenridge Park and miniature railroad, the Witte Museum and tree house are just down Broadway. The AT&T Center is less than 15 minutes away and Splashtown is only ten minutes down the road. If you wish to go spend the day at one of our theme parks, Fiesta Texas and Sea World are only 20 minutes away. Central Market is a block and a half away and so are numerous eating establishments.

Our home is a one story renovated ranch-style house. It has a new standing seam roof and a circular driveway. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a HDTV. Plantation shutters, original hardwood floors and crown moulding are throughout the house. The master bath has been renovated with travertine tile throughout and twin sinks. The secondary bath also has been updated with a new Kohler pedestal sink and travertine tile. There are three large living areas and a dining room with a table that holds 8 comfortably. There are three bedrooms (two with TVs) and two more pull out couches in the sunroom (with a TV) and the 'blue room'. In San Antonio, you could not desire a more centrally located home to sample all our city has to offer. We are close to most destination in San Antonio. . Five minutes to downtown, Incarnate Word University Trinity University the Alamo, Sea World is about 25 minutes travel but that is not too far. And Schliederbaun is 25 minutes away. The grocery and resteraunts are in this area and yet you have a nice back yard to sit outside on a deck and enjoy your down time in the evening. There is an additional charge per day for guests over 6 guests. That is $10.00 per person over 6 per day of the rental. I also will consider rental for one night. The charge will be greater than the daily rate. Call and inquire about the possibility .

So much better than staying in a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

The property is centrally located between downtown and Fort Sam Houston. We wanted to see the Riverwalk and The Alamo and visit our son who is studying to be a Navy Corpsman at Fort Sam Houston, and it was very short drive to both. The property is located in a great neighborhood. Very safe, which was important to us in travelling to a city we have never visited before. We loved driving around and looking at the nearby mansions. There were 4 of us, but the house was very roomy. We were looking at hotels on the Riverwalk, but we're so glad we chose to rent this house instead. Much more room, a kitchen, two bathrooms, and we saved money. Our interactions with Pruny, the owner, were great. She is a sweetheart. We had absolutely no issues, and she made every attempt to accommodate our needs. She took time to show us around the house when we first arrived. You could tell that she takes pride in this property. Not sure if we'll ever make it back to San Antonio, but if we do we'll certainly try to rent this property again.

Great Home & Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The home is so convenient. The location of the home is perfect for a great time in SA. The owner of the home was a joy to work with. Her details to the home and your trip make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. She went out of her way several times to make sure we were comfortable. I recommend this home to anyone going to stay in SA!

would definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Pruny was an excellent person to work with, she was willing to change the check in time so that our kids could get their naps in on the day of our arrival. The pictures do not give enough credit to the size of the home. It is very spacious, and a great place for families. Fully stocked kitchen, the "blue room" was a perfect place for my little ones to play. It is a wonderful location, close to so many fun things and restaurants and groceries. The house was everything we needed for our family of 5 to have a relaxed vacation in San Antonio. Would 100% recommend this property.

Great Location, Customer Service, Quality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks for work. 4 of us total. Each had our own room and split the 2 bathrooms. House is very clean. Flatscreen TVs, HD cable and internet. Kitchen had everything, just like home.

Located in Alamo Heights. Several food options and grocery stores nearby. Close to downtown.

Highly recommend this place.

CAUTION

  • 1 of 5

Caution: we found the owner to be challenging to work with. Communication was very slow. I would wait a week or more to get a reply to an email and could never reach her on her phone. I had requested to arrive one day before the original reservation obviously expecting to pay for the extra day. She agreed, but never charged me and then accused me of trying to get something for nothing and cancelled our reservation . . . 3 days before our arrival, leaving seven of us without a place to stay for my niece's wedding! Never saw the house and it looks beautiful on line, but we wish the owner had been more reasonable.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, we were never able to come to an agreement about paying for the additional night. An early check-in of 1 am ( our normal check in time is 4 pm) does require an additional day. I would have been happy to accommodate the early morning arrival, but could not get an agreement for payment on the additional night. We are very reasonable and always seek to find a way to accommodate special requests, but again when we can't reach an agreement about payment for additional night and can't agree to checking in at the normal time, we have to part ways and call it a day. As you know the entire deposit and all payments were immediately returned to you. I wanted to mention this person did not stay at my home at all. sincerely /owner

Beautiful home. Only thing door to hall bath did not lock. Since we shared bathroom some of us were caught unexpectedly. Other than that enjoyed your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the information about the lock leading into one of the bathrooms. No one has ever mentioned that to me before. I will correct this one item. owner
