Rhonda Canales purchased this farmhouse in 1995
Our stay at this barn was wonderful. It was so nice being in a house away from the riverwalk. Such a respite in a busy city. It is close to all fun areas to visit, including Fredericksburg,, Greune, and our favorite, Boerne. So venture into the city of San Antonio or head to the hills. Your choice! Great location!
The barn is modern, clean, and comfortable. We wanted for nothing, while there. Even coffee, and shampoo, conditioner, and enough towels for an army were supplied.. Rhonda has thought of everything.
Rhonda is a gracious hostess and full of Information about the area. We look forward to a return someday to the beautiful barn.
We had the best time staying at the Barn House! We were in San Antonio for Thanksgiving week and the Barn fit our needs perfectly! Rhonda is very kind and warm, and we loved Buddy the dog! The location is great - close to great restaurants, places of interest, major interstates, and the HEB :) Have recommended the Barn to relatives who are planning a spring visit. You can't go wrong with the Texas Barn House!
We had a wonderful stay for a week at the barn. It was everything we had hoped for. It is spacious and had everything we needed during our stay
Rhonda is a wonderful host and very friendly. We were there over Halloween and she was able to direct us to a kid friendly neighborhood for our little ones first trick or treating. We hope in the future to return and finish exploring the area. Great host, great place.
This is my first VRBO experience and I am VERY happy with this stay. The house is above the garage and part of a larger estate. You enter through a private gate and go down the gorgeous cypress lined driveway. My husband and I were there for 5 days, with my daughter and her husband, visiting with my newly graduated son/airman at the Lackland Airforce Base. We wanted a relaxed atmosphere and we definitely got one here!!!! The guest house is located above the garage and gave us plenty of space for our family of 5. Very cozy. The grocery store is about 3 minutes away so we were able to make wonderful meals and/or grill outside. The base was only 15-20 minutes away because being with my son as much as possible was high priority. San Antonio was also near 15-20 minutes away. This house is very centrally located to many amenities but is tucked back into this estate surrounded by a beautiful masonry wall which gives privacy. The landscape of the property is very beautiful as well. We were greeted almost daily by "Buddy", the property owners golden retriever. Paul and Rhonda are very kind and accommodating. There is also a very nice pool on the grounds, unfortunately we never did get a chance to use it. I would definitely go back to this property if ever in the area again and I would highly recommend renting here if you are looking for a slow paced, relaxed atmosphere. Thanks Paul and Rhonda!!
Brought my daughter and her friend for a girl bonding weekend. San Antonio was a great location and the Texas Barn-House was in the middle of it all, yet you wouldn't know you were in town. It was peaceful and quaint. It felt like coming home after a day of site-seeing. With two teenagers, having the kitchen was great! Rhonda was a great host to us! We plan on staying again the next time we go to San Antonio!
We spent six nights at The Barn and loved every minute! Ms. Rhonda was very nice and accommodating not only with our pets, but for our request to stay an extra night. We always felt like we were at home and would definitely stay there again. The property is beautiful, clean, private, and very peaceful. The landscaping is very well maintained and the pool is beautiful too. I highly recommend this property for vacation renters or just for a quick getaway.
