About The Owner: I am a retired educator and airline employee. My husband and I enjoy traveling, but we also love our home in San Antonio. Gardening and keeping the grounds lovely is a favorite pastime. We especially love to entertain, and enjoy the evenings around the patio area. We cook out often and enjoy al fresco dining and a glass of wine or a margarita by the pool. We love to get to know our guests. There is always an open invitation. We have two golden retrievers and several cats who will want to be petted and loved.

For a relaxing getaway, this is the place to come! You are right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of San Antonio, and yet once you enter this property, you feel like you are in the country! Please see virtual tour under Amenities!

Single best VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5

I can't overstate the quality of the Barn...and there aren't enough words to do it justice in a simple paragraph.

I could try, "Beautiful, elegant, relaxed, country-chic." But there's more to it...every little detail of the residence is perfect. Even better, it's like you're in the middle of nowhere while being in the middle of everything! This 1 square mile of rural estates sits smack in the middle of San Antonio. You can't hear ANY urban noise, traffic noise or even human noise! The grounds & gardens are like a manicured retreat...fireflies filled the evening air. The Barn gives you a well-appointed home in a country estate-like setting while being close to everything San Antonio has to offer. You can't do better. No way.

A very relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

Thank you to Paul and Rhonda who were very accommodating hosts. The Texas Barn House has all of the amenities that make you feel at home away from home. The location was very central and it was easy to get to everywhere we wanted to go. We loved Texas and hope to return one day and experience more of what this wonderful state has to offer.

Lovely place!

  • 4 of 5

Great property. Clean, nicely furnished and decorated. Rhonda was very helpful and just a delightful lady. Small pool but very nice to get some sun. The main living area is on the second floor so renters do have to be prepared to use stairs regularly. About a 20 minute drive to downtown and Riverwalk. Highly recommended!
