About Ricardo Valdes (Se habla Espanol)

I am from Monterrey, Mexico and San Antonio has always been my 2nd home town. I love San Antonio because it is a major big city but still you can drive to many fun areas within just a short 10-15 minute drive if you live in Central San Antonio.

Ricardo Valdes (Se habla Espanol) purchased this house in 2013

Why Ricardo Valdes (Se habla Espanol) chose San Antonio

I love the urban life. When you live or vacation close to downtown San Antonio, you are closer to the culture, energy and personality of a city. After identifying the amazing location and safe environment of this house less than 4 miles from Downtown and less than 2 miles from all the nice restaurants, bars and shops, my dream was to turn this house into a cozy paradise of contemporary ambiance and decor, full of light and color. The House is also located just 10 minutes away from the Airport.

What makes this house unique

Amazing location close to everything. Safe neighborhood with a mix of Hispanic traditional families and upcoming young and mature urban professionals (Single and Married)

Great contemporary decor and ambiance.

Excellent Rental Property Near Downtown San Antonio

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property in San Antonio to visit family and participate in the San Antonio Rock 'N' Roll Marathon. The house is in an older neighborhood that's only a short drive to downtown San Antonio. It's very well maintained and the owner was prompt to respond to any of our questions. We'd recommend this property if you're looking to visit San Antonio. Just make sure to read the details as this property does not have a washer and dryer which may be an issue for some.

Thanksgiving football showdown

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience we had at this property. The house was the perfect size, spacious bedrooms, great fenced backyard with an inviting patio area. The openness of the living area made it perfect for preparing meals, Thanksgiving Dinner, and having family and friends be a part of the all that was happening. The house is quaint and extremely comfortable. The deco is cheerful and modern. The house was perfect for having family and friends come out of state to spend Thanksgiving week and attend the UTSA-Charlotte football game. What a pleasure to meet Mr. Valdes. He was extremely accommodating to our needs. The property is centrally located and accessibly to many San Antonio attractions. I highly recommend this property.

Fit For (and With) Three Kings

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood was decent. There are lots of similarly sized homes locally, many of them being renovated. The high school is only two blocks away, but we never had a problem with noise or rowdy kids. The whole area was relatively docile and easy to navigate. There is a Family Dollar, McDonald's and Burger King, fairly close by. Nothing is right around the corner, but it is not very far a way. We used the #2 bus to get the city center and it was reasonably convenient. It picks up right in front of the high school. During the week, it runs every 15 mins and drops you off on Navarro and Commerce in about 20 minutes. The 7-day pass was $12.

The house was clean and inviting. The front door opens to a well kept living room. It looks bigger in pictures than in person, but the open concept living room, dining room, and kitchen were ample for our needs. Two bedrooms in the front of the house shared one modest but full bathroom. The biggest room is in the back (an addition?); it has an on-suite full bath (no tub) with enclosed glass shower and plenty of space. it is not easy to share that bathroom as one would have to walk through the bedroom to get to it. The place is visually appealing. On close inspection, there are several minor inaccuracies in the finishes (the toilet seats were loose, the shower door not completely sealed, and so forth). The heating and air con were excellent, and each bedroom has a ceiling fan. Very versatile. The back yard was fun. It has a Tiki Bar and enough room for three guys to spread out and throw a football. The driveway is good for up to three cars.

Ricardo was attentive to our needs and helpful throughout the stay. Only one key was provided, and this created some logistical difficulties for three guys staying there for a conference. I suspect that he would provide one or two more if you asked him in advance. We did not ask, but it worked out fine for us. The internet works well and only has a large smattering of the basic channels, good enough for sports enthusiasts like ourselves. No HBO or other luxuries. It went out one day and Ricardo called in to have it reset. It worked well otherwise.

The bottomline is that I would indeed use the home again. The combination of location, price, accommodations and a positive experience with the landlord made the whole trip worthwhile.

Fabulous Interior, 3 King beds, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This house was really perfect for our family. We really appreciated that each bedroom had a king bed and the living area with the sectional had plenty of room for 5 adults and 1 child. We loved how the house was decorated with all the bright colors and fabulous oversized art pieces. Really unique! The kitchen has all the little appliances you need, toaster, toaster oven, coffee pot, and everything was really clean. The cabinets are stocked with some spices. There is no dishwasher but that is not an issue since we really didn't cook a lot. We did not spend anytime in the backyard but it has changed since whenever the pictures of the yard were posted. A lot of the furniture is gone and it is not as colorful as it looks. But we did not hang out there. The location is perfect, very quiet family neighborhood, we felt very safe. Everything we wanted to see was only about 15 minutes away. Ricardo was great to work with and responded with my questions pretty quickly. I would stay here again for sure.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all of Mary's positive comments about the house. We would also like to communicate that we just brought new patio furniture and new colorful pillows as the previous patio furniture was damaged by the 2 unusual hail storms that we had this year in San Antonio. Glad to know that our guest enjoy the great decor, our beds and it's amazing location close to the best amenities and restaurants of San Antonio.
