Why Sheila Piazza chose Oak Park / Northwood

La Casa is the perfect property first of all because it is centrally located in San Antonio. Get anywhere in town in 20 minutes. Have a lot of out of town guests, don't worry, La Casa is only 5 minutes from the airport. But it is also very unique in its decor and layout. La Casa can also provide onsite daily housekeeping service as well as customized meals so you can sit back and relax. The perfect house for entertaining, corporate events, weddings and family accommodations. 'La Casa is su casa when in San Antonio!'

What makes this estate unique

What do you get when you mix Mediterranean style with the warmth of Mexico and classic southern hospitality--- La Casa.

The pool at La Casa is 40,000 gallons and is accentuated with an authentic Palapa. La Casa has a media room and bar for entertaining. You can hook up your computer and put on a family slide show or host a corporate training event. The rooms are spacious to host many guests or have a great party. Quality beds and linens from Italy make La Casa your resort stay in San Antonio.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a blast at "La Casa". We wanted a house that made us all feel like home. We love having family talks at night. We got to do it here! We all gathered in the living room or dining room area and caught up on everyone's life. We recommend this house to everyone!

Terrific property and customer service

  • 5 of 5

The house was as pictured and very spacious. It provided an excellent home base for several people attending the Final Four. The owner, Sheila, is very responsive and aims to please. I recommend La Casa - Elegant highly.

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented LaCasa-Elegant for a baby shower/party luau. It was the perfect place for us. Sheila was a very friendly, patient host...I had LOTS of questions regarding measurements, etc and she was easy to work with. I will definitely rent LaCasa again when the need arises.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the house. Especially the swimming area. It was hard for the older folks with the stairs, but overall worked out ok.

Perfect meeting place

  • 5 of 5

The name says it all! My group was fortunate enough to secure this location for our yearly retreat over the July 4th weekend and the space was more than fantastic. The home came fully equipped with anything you could imagine, or hope for and Sheila was always right on time if there was a question or concern. The home is centrally located which made getting around town for our traveling guest quite simple. However, low and behold no one wanted to leave the property the entire weekend. There’s plenty of space indoors, as well as the outdoor terrace and pool areas gave everyone plenty of room to spread out. We had up to 20 people in the home at our peak meeting time and there was plenty of room for at least 20 more. Our group travels throughout the year to different locations, but none have come close to the experience we had at La Casa. As my guest departed it was stated over and over again how great of a time they had at this location, and this will be at the top of our list for our next San Antonio group getaway. If you’re looking for a gathering place for a group, or family you will not be disappointed with an investment in this property. Sheila and this property are the best!

Casa Elegante was the perfect place to spend the days leading up to my wedding. Perfectly situated, anything you need is just about 5-10 minute drive away. Sheila was very welcoming and accommodating. I was able to stay with my entire bridal party and also host a rehearsal brunch. Not to mention it is a beautiful place for photos! Overall, it was a huge blessing to have stayed at Casa Elegante!!
