It is a quiet, historic, unique neighborhood, just north of the city center; but a very safe area. It's proximity to so many of the historical sites, missions, conv. center, zoo, museums, Spur's games, is ideal. That is the reason we began to offer the house to guests: so they could enjoy the area, too. It is unique in that the neighborhood is small and right on the natural San Antonio River at Brackenridge Park. The neighborhood is small and home to some famous artists and musicians, like Jim Cullum, one of the jazz greats. One of the homes was built in the 1700's. The neighborhood's boundaries are the River, Golf Course, Brackenridge Park, Davis Park and Mulberry Ave. Trinity and Univ. of Incarnate Word, Ft.

Great location for the PEARL and the River Walk

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is perfect .The owner, Jean, was very good about providing extra details and amenities that made the trip perfect for my family and friends. She is very responsive and was able to answer all my questions quickly about the rental and local area. The key however is the location. It allowed us to use Uber almost anywhere for under $20. The Pearl is very close and is perfect for the trendy crowd. Hotel Emma is a must to see and it is only a few blocks from the house.

The rental is very clean, comfortable, and spacious. The property pictures and description are accurate. If you are staying in the San Antonio area this is a great rental. The only drawback is if you like to watch TV. There is a limited number of channels. However the WiFi was great and can be used.

Perfect location, perfect house

This house is in a cute, tucked away neighborhood close to major San Antonio attractions. The house itself is very nice and has everything you need. Perfect little get away! Highly recommended.

Wonderful Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is very conveniently located in the heart of all downtown activities and attractions. We had a total of 8 people staying at the home with a mix of adults and children. The layout of the home and the bedrooms were perfect for our group. The 2 living room areas allowed separate spaces for the kids and adults to enjoy some down time. We all enjoyed walking along the river and exploring the riverbanks. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Jean responded quickly during the reservation process, was available for any questions we had and obviously wanted us to enjoy our stay. We definitely did and we will return to this home if we ever need a place in San Antonio again!

Reunion in San Antonio

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of nine who stayed in the Pearl River property for the weekend. House was very convienent to downtown and to Brackenride Park/Brackenridge Golf Course. There were some very good restaurants close by, so it was not necessary to go downtown for a great meal. The La Fonda on main was wonderful and only 5 minutes away for great Mexican food.

The owner, Jean, was most helpful even though she was in the middle of a family emergency. She even allowed me to see the property beforehand so that I could insure it would be adequate for my group. There was ample parking in the driveway and on the street to accommodate all the vehicles of my group. Property description and photos were accurate.

Only have a couple of comments concerning the amenities. Everything was great with a couple of exceptions.

1. The coffee maker was extremely slow to make a pot of coffee. Think the place needs a new one., especially for a big group of adults.

2. TV was a little spotty, and a better cable/dish package would help with football game viewing.

Overall was great, and have gotten very favorable feedback from everyone in our group. Would highly recommend this property for anyone visiting San Antonio for a group or a family gathering.

Owner's Response: We were so glad to see your group have a wonderful reunion! So sorry about the coffee pot! We like our coffee in the morning too! We did not know that it was not working properly since we do not live in the property. We so wish you had let us know immediately. You would have had another coffee maker in minutes. Sometimes we have extra supplies or appliances stored at the property and can tell you where to look. We are always available and will take joy in being able to make each person's stay lovely. So, if you future guests need anything, please just let us know and we will respond immediately.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in town for a wedding at the Japanese Tea Garden. Rental is close to the event as well as River Walk, Brackenridge Park, etc. The rental house was comfortable for our large family group of mixed ages

Excellent weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Jean was very helpful in getting this booked and making sure we had what we needed.

I think my favorite thing about the property was having my morning coffee in the back sitting room looking at the tropical landscape. The place was very clean and the pictures are a great representation of what to expect.

We will definitely be staying there again.
