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.

There were a couple of utensils that we couldn't find ( can opener for one) but we borrowed the neighbors and that was a fun experience!

Great location & caring home owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family came with me for a 5-day conference in San Antonio. The location was a quick 5-7min drive to the convention center (on one occasion I took an Uber home and from the convention center to the house the cost was less than $6). It was only a couple minutes to get to the Pearl which was a great place to have dinner. With our rental car we were within easy drives to all of the missions and the AT&T center for the Rodeo. While I was at the conference my husband took my young children to a nearby park, the Japanese garden, and the zoo (they especially loved the train ride that goes around the zoo!).

The home owners were helpful and showed a genuine interest in helping us have a nice stay. The house was clean and accommodated our party of 7 very well (including a 2 & 4 y/o). I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others!

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!
