Long term rental
We were so fortunate to be able to stay at the Barn House for two extended periods of time...July and August and then again mid October thru December. We absolutely adored our time there. Lots of green space, very private and quiet and deer on a daily basis. We were right in the heart of San Antonio, but felt we were in the country.
The pictures don’t do it justice as it’s a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home that has every amenity you could ask for. Rhonda and Paul couldn’t be more wonderful and make sure you have anything you might need.
We will be back again for another long term stay as it has become our home away from home. Thanks for everything, Chris & Dick Gibson
We have so loved having you here and feel so blessed to have met you and your family! Thank you for your wonderful review! Looking forward to having you back very soon! Ely can come visit Buddy any day of the week!
Excellent Property and Top Notch Owner
We absolutely loved our stay at the Barn House. It was comfy and well stocked with everything we needed. The house worked great for two couples and Rhonda was wonderful. I’ve rented several properties for vacation and I’ve never had a better experience with the owner. She truly cares! We would definitely look up this property if we came back to San Antonio.
Comfortable, clean, and private, loved it!
We had a wonderful stay at the Texas Barn-House. Paul and Rhonda are great hosts and the barn has everything you need for a relaxing time. The location offers easy acces to all that San Antonio has to offer. What a perfect combination!
This is our second time here and we love it! Comfort, comfort, comfort is just as important as location, location, location! Rhonda and Paul are awesome! Love the new bigger shower and the stairs were beautiful! We love sitting outside enjoying tea in the morning when it is cooler or a glass a wine in evening. Buddy the dog always comes over for a friendly hello. Nice having a protected covering for my new SUV. Also was nice to know the place was secure with the gate and high walls. Was fun watching all the deer in the neighbors yard. Rode our bikes to the park and up and down the road. Went kayaking. So many things to do in a 30 min drive. And we will be back as we are house hunting and need a place to stay while we do this. Thank you for opening your home to us!💕�💓�💗�
Perfect place to stage family San Antonio vacation
We loved staying at The Texas Barn-House. It was comfortable, clean and located on a beautiful estate. Though it's in San Antonio and not far from the main attractions (for us it was Alamo, Riverwalk, Sea World, Fantastic Caverns, etc with the kids) we loved that it felt like we were in the country. Nice and quiet. And LOTS of deer. Everywhere. Even in the heat of the day. The master bed/bath was perfect for the wife and me and we put the kids in the second room. Kids liked having the big tv to watch when we were at the house in between adventures. We cooked meals there (only 1.5 miles to fantastic grocery store) and had all the equipment we needed. Even used the pool. Great hospitality, wonderful owners and a fantastic property that feels like a secluded country escape right in the heart of NW San Antonio. We will be back. Thanks for having us!
Beautiful property ... convenient but quiet location
Perfect location, just minutes away from restaurants and stores but feels like it is in the country. Very quiet. In the evening, I counted 12 deer in the lot next door. Very clean and comfortable.
