Relaxing, cozy, and a great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed for the weekend in one of the casitas for our 2 year anniversary. We absolutely LOVED our trip! The casita is a two bedroom, one bath. It’s a cute place to stay, very cozy, just what we wanted. The bed is so comfortable! Honestly, we both stayed in bed till about 10:15 the next morning because neither one of us wanted to get up! The surrounding area is very quiet so you can expect a great night’s sleep. The next morning we spent most of our day at the pool, which is amazing! The design is smart. It’s a long rectangular pool. They have a shallow (beach-like access) on one end, where you can tan, but be cooled off by the water at the same time. This would also be a great spot for young kids if that applies to you. The other end has a diving board, which we had so much fun with! The rest of the pool is probably about 4 feet and gets close to 8 feet or so near the diving board. My fiancé actually loved this pool so much that he wants to make a similar design in our future house! I’m definitely ok with that :D There are plenty of chairs and pool toys for kids. There’s a big tree that gives the pool some shade from the hot, Texas sun. Onsite there’s also a small exercise room with free-weights and a couple machines and a restroom. If you want to make s’mores, there’s a fire pit. And right in the center of the site is a peaceful water fountain. Overall, we highly recommend staying here. If you’re looking for a relaxing, quiet weekend or trip, look no further because this place is wonderful. We will be back. Brett and Jenna are very accommodating and respond quickly to emails!

Beeaaautiful and great owners!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a little slice of heaven. A very homey, cultural, and relaxing feel. We were looking for a comfortable and secure spot for my family and I to stay while visiting San Antonio and this place was perfect; it is about 25-30 minutes from the Alamo and the Riverwalk depending on traffic but only a few minutes from restaurants and shopping in Helotes. It was a perfect distance from the hustle and bustle of the city so we could relax while being close enough to enjoy all the sites and events. We loved the Spanish styling and rustic charm. The whole place has great character and the owners were wonderful to work with and fellowship with; very helpful and accommodating. It was like staying with friends that gave you the space you needed but also were there to interact and have fun if you wanted company. The pool was "cold" for the area but beautiful and we enjoyed it still. The bed in the main room was super comfortable and my daughter slept great in the other room. Although the space is a little small, it is cozy and had enough space for all 3 of us and probably more if we needed. There is lots of outdoor space so that you don't have to stay indoors the whole time. I want to go back just to relax in this little Spanish paradise and visit San Antonio; we definitely recommend this place!

A lovely getaway in the Southwestern flavor of San Antonio!

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, clean, clean. Every amenity available was in good shape meaning we got er' done when washing clothes and small does NOT mean 'mal' in this case. We had a pleasant experience and wish the property owners well in the future. We hope to return next time we travel to the San Antonio area.

Rough yet charming

  • 4 of 5

The history behind this place is amazing. We were highly impressed with Brett and the level of hospitality that was provided. It's an older property and the age shows but if that's what you're looking for it's the perfect place to be. The pool is beautiful and at night the bats come out to skim the water. Our daughter really enjoyed the pool.

However... I feel as though the place needs a deep clean. We walked in and it was picked up but not dusted nor clean. Spider webs and dead bugs in the light fixtures are not appealing. Every day we woke up to dead roaches to which it became a joke for my husband to name them as us girls were disgusted.

The window unit in the main room kept freezing up around 1-2 am making sleep very restless in the Texas heat.

The furniture is appropriate to the casita but the beds are loose. The purple bed our daughter slept in is literally about to fall apart.

All in all we loved the experiance we had with Brett and we are really wanting to see what he does with this place in the future as this property has SO much potential to be spectacular.

I honestly was tempted to call our house keeper for you but I know she wouldn't drive 5 hours for any amount of money when she has our house to herself.
