About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath, Occupying The Top 2 Floors Of A Historic Home

Awesome 2 story apartment in the top half of 100 year old historic home. Completely renovated with every amenity you could want. Sleeps 6 to 8 people. Walking distance to famous River Walk, and all of the good stuff in Southtown: Blue Star Complex, Beethovens Beer Garden, Friendly Spot, bike trails, Mission Reach Trails, 1919 Bar (my personal favorite). Numerous restaurants within walking distance: Madhatters, Feast, HotJoy, and Liberty Bar/Restaurant. The River Center mall with an IMAX is less then 2 miles away. Amenities include: smart TVs with cable in each room, Wifi, BBQ grill in the back, laundry room, full sized kitchen, and large soaking tub. Relax on large balcony with views of Tower of America. Bike rentals and public transit are 5 minutes away. Loft space has two reading nooks with bean bags, books, Xbox with games and is all upstairs away from master bedroom. This is a new rental and I am very willing to go the extra mile to make your stay the best. The beds are two queen beds, queen sleeper sofa, and a nice inflatable bed.

About John Adam McDowell

I was born and raised in San Antonio. I love it here and really enjoy living in the King William area. I am 15 minutes from just about everything in San Antonio. I was a teacher and basketball coach for 7 years before I started flipping houses. I started J Adams Properties LLC. to move into the rental, and this rental is the first vacation rental type property, but as soon as you see it you will understand why I felt I needed to share this property. I am still involved in basketball, and I am currently working on taking kids to basketball camps around the world.

John Adam McDowell purchased this apartment in 2014

Why John Adam McDowell chose Downtown

I was very fortunate to get this piece of property. I lived about a mile south and saw the "For Sale" sign but assumed by the location I could not afford the house. I was surprised by the price, but after seeing the condition I understood why. Luckily I have parents that are not scared of a challenge, and we took on this huge project together. When we started the property was deemed "uninhabitable." Eight months later it turned out better then I thought possible. I love living here and you will love visiting.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful old home in a unique historical neighborhood.

Owner was very responsive every time I had a question, also helpful with restaurant options in the area. Very clean and updated rental. Loved the upstairs floor, full of space. Close to everything downtown.
