About Esther Ponce

I love people and have a passion for hospitality. I have been in the property rental business for over 25 years and l look forward to having you stay at my Casitas.

Esther Ponce purchased this house in 1987

Guestbook comments from the owner

The casita is one of a few nestled in a neighborhood just east of downtown (with a great view of the skyline!). Very residential, but all the main attractions and restaurants in San Antonio are just a few minutes away. The space is just as pictured and described: both cozy and roomy, with three bedrooms, one bathroom, a small living room, and a decent sized kitchen and dining room. Plenty of windows for sunlight and fresh air, if so desired. Esther was very patient with our delayed arrival, and her handyman, Jerry, was extremely friendly and helpful when we finally checked in. All in all, a great hub to explore San Antonio, and a relaxing place to spend the evening

Clean, bright, convenient and great value

  • 5 of 5

Clean & bright: Esther has done a great job maintaining and decorating the villas. Loved the green/organic edible gardens & fruit trees. All of her (4?) villas were full with fellow K-State fans and a few other young couples.

Convenient: Location is very close to downtown / zoo / Pearl Brewery / Trinity University.

Great value: Our villa was perfect for this trip -- in-laws joined 20,000+ other K-State fans for the Alamobowl -- and stayed on one side of the villa, while we parents had another room with baby, and other 2 kids had their own bedroom. Laundry, full kitchen, and Wi-Fi were a plus -- first two helped us save money on meals.

Only possible disadvantages were:

- no sports channels (father-in-law was somewhat frustrated; but kids loved the kid-friendly Christian TV stations)

- villas are only less than a mile from Alamodome & Riverwalk , but probably not ideal for walking safely at night -- not the best part of town, lots of stray dogs and questionable dealings on one corner

Nonetheless, we'd stay with Esther again.
