While we are both dedicated to our corporate jobs, we do place a strong value on quality time with our family and friends. As owners of this vacation home, we have worked to provide you with the ideal "home away from home." Aside from that, providing guests with THE BEST customer service remains our top priority.

Leticia Ortiz purchased this house in 2014

Perfect accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Leticia has thought of everything. Our stay was perfect. The house was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. We came to San Antonia for a family wedding, the location had easy access to everything. The neighborhood was very nice, quiet and comfortable. We felt right at home. We have been using VRBO for the past year or so and this has been one of the best experiences, easy to work with, beautiful quality home. We highly recommend this property.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a perfect stay at Letty & Gus' House in the Heights! The house was meticulous and the accommodations were exactly as described. We had arrived in SAN Antonio early and they made arrangements so we could get into the house early. The house was beautiful, peaceful and gave us access to everything and everywhere. While there, my husband found a pretty necklace which had probably been left by another guest. We left it in a conspicuous place. I forgot to leave a note with it. I received a text the same day saying it was found and could they send to me! Very thoughtful and honest! We have been staying in VRBO's for 8 years and this was absolutely one of our best stays!

Thank you so much Letty and Gus! We will be back!

Large comfortable CLEAN home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay while in San Antonio. I asked if the owner had a pack and play and a high chair and they didn't, but arranged to have it there for our stay! House was clean and well maintained, perfectly stocked. Pool area and playground were fantastic, will def return should my travels bring me back to SA in the future.
