Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Northeast Side - 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) retired in 2015 from teaching high schoolers. 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.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect! The kids loved the pool, hot tub, and getting to watch the deer up close. The house was in a great location and had everything we needed!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting for our vacation! The home itself is perfect for accommodating a lot of people. We had plenty of space for all and everything we could possibly need.

The location was perfect and centrally located to all the activities we planned. The neighborhood is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the deer and growing up in Alaska, that says a lot! HA!

My husband did have one "complaint" - lack of Pokémon for hunting.....

This property was far beyond expectation and we will definitely be staying here again!

We first entered the property for an early sneek, but returned after shopping for essentials, but someone had locked the bottom lock and we had to wait for a short period and it was unfortunately a very unusual hot summer all over the southern area that year. After a few phone calls we entered the home a few minutes later. Our whole family was very pleased with the space and spa/ pool area.

Loved it, Thanks Jeff & Marilyn!

We really enjoyed our stay in San Antonio. The home was the perfect size and setup for our family that included grandparents, parents and kids. It had everything we needed. The kids loved the pool and spent much of the week in it.

Perfect Family Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation rental for a family. The home is lovely, spacious, & comfortable with something for everyone. Easy access to major roads/highways to get anywhere in San Antonio. We had early risers and night owls, but no one was disturbed because of the space this home offers. All in a wonderful quiet & safe neighborhood.

Our family totally enjoyed the pool in the backyard. The biggest attraction were the deer that roam thru the neighborhood. Our family, young and old couldn't get enough of the deer in the yard throughout the day. You feel very relaxed in a tranquil country setting yet so close to a major city!!

Fabulous house and neighborhood

The house was perfect for our stay. There was plenty of room for all. The pool and spa were a nice treat. The neighborhood was amazing with deer roaming front yards.

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.
