Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in San Antonio, our Grandson graduated from the Air Force and we decided renting a house would be so much better than a a Hotel. The house was just like being at home, we brought him there for the day when he got a town pass and he was so relaxed and we all had a great time. When the coffee pot didn't work Veronica replaced it immediately which was very much appreciated. Thank you for helping to make our visit with our Airman a wonderful one.

Excellent option for USAF BMT graduate families!

  • 5 of 5

This property met and exceeded our expectations while visiting the area for BMT graduation. Our airman was very pleased to be able to relax in a "homely" environment during her off-base pass. We lucked out with some beautiful weather and took advantage of the grills on the back patio. We also brought our dogs, who enjoyed the huge backyard area. I would definitely recommend to any family planning a visit to the area!

Perfect for BMT families!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our son's BMT graduation. It was very clean and spacious, and it is very well equipped with everything you might need. The home is very well located to get to Lackland, and not far from other tourist destinations. The owners were great to check on to see that everything was running smoothly. We would not hesitate to rent again if we are ever in the San Antonio area again.

This house was a disappointment, as soon as me walked in we were overcome with smells from packaged scent pouches, all not of the same smell. Every room we used was in need of replacement light bulbs, making the house very dark for us. The house is cleaned by a cleaning service showing only surface cleaning we had to totally CLEAN the kitchen before use. The refrigerator had items well over the expiration date, which we had to remove. The television in the master bedroom had no remote, and did not have service. The camera on the garage made us feel as if we were always being watched and wondering if some were hidden in the home.

Has a huge yard.

Owner's Response: Hi Jay, Thank you for the feedback. I would like to respond to each of your concerns. I noticed your stay was Nov,23-28 2016 and the review was written Jan 2 2017. I was concerned as why you would write such a bad review a month after your stay? Both the wife and myself have phone #'s on the VRBO web site and you had my wifes # becasue she texted you the door lock code. I always ask everyone who stays with us to communicate any and all issues they experience while guests at our house. Regarding the scents not being all the same. Im not sure what to say other then sorry. Regarding the light bulbs , we have extra light bulbs in the house and I wished you had just mentioned this to us. Then we could have resolved the issue. Regarding the TV remote in the master bedroom. We do our best to check the bulbs and every TV for a remote and make sure they are working. In this case it looks like we over looked both.Regarding the condiments, we leave them and people will throw away as necessary. All food is always disposed of If I would have known about either issue then we would have resolved both. I cannot do anything to make your stay a greater experience if I do not know what is wrong. Thank you for allowing my family to host yours. John

BMT Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at this property while attending our Grandson's graduation at Lackland AFB.

There were only four of us but the house was spacious and could have accommodated several more.

The house was clean and comfortable, and was what we were hoping for. It gave us a very comfortable setting to bring our Grandson to when he had town liberty. He had a birthday coming up and so we were able to get a cake for him and host other family members that were in town, but staying at hotels, for a Birthday get together for him. Provided a good, family setting, and I think the Cake & Ice Cream with the family was just what he needed about then. Wouldn't have been the same at a hotel lobby.

The location was quite good for our purposes as a short drive to the base, and yet near any of the activities we wanted (dining, shopping, local attractions, etc.)

Everything was as represented, and a welcome call from the owners upon our arrival with assurances that we should feel free to call them if they could be of any help.

Great rental experience

  • 4 of 5

Greatly enjoyed our vacation rental. Owners were very responsive. The home was very nice, spacious with large dining table and plenty of seating. Beds were comfortable and it was easy to get to Lackland AFB. Would highly recommend. It made our visit with our BMT graduate much more convenient than staying at a hotel.
