Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 16, 2015
4 large bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 6 TVs, sleeps 14; beautiful pool with spa

Enjoy the comforts of a large house with entertainment electronics on the inside, wireless throughout the property, and a lovely shaded backyard with a beautiful pool. This house is right for a large family or a few families who would like to vacation together--whether you want to hang out on the property or venture out to explore. It's in a lovely neighborhood where the deer roam freely through large lots covered with oaks. While you're situated serenely on a 3/4 acre, tree-covered lot in our quiet community on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, you're only 2 or 3 miles--depending on what direction you take--from two different Walmarts. So, we’re not far from civilization--if you know what I mean. We’re located a couple of miles from the 1604 Loop of San Antonio as well as Interstate 35, the corridor linking San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, and Austin. You're in a prime location to see San Antonio and the greater area.

Our Home is a 4BR/3BA, 15-year-old executive home located in an outer northeast suburb of San Antonio. This spacious house has a little over 4000 sq ft of living space. There are open living areas downstairs with all four bedrooms and a bonus/media room upstairs. There are 6 TVs (incl 50' flat screen) with one in each bedroom. Most of the home is carpeted except for tile through the bathrooms, kitchen, and traffic areas. We enjoy a large park-like, fenced backyard where we have a beautiful lagoon pool and heated spa. A large circle drive and garage facilitates ample parking. The home has wireless internet, and one old computer available if you don't bring your own laptop. This was our primary residence for a long time and is equipped accordingly.

San Antonio: A Vacation Destination: So much to see and do... It's become a vacation destination for more than just Texans--if that wasn't enough. While this list is far from exhaustive, here’s a few things conveniently located nearby:

10 mins to Natural Bridge Caverns and Wildlife Ranch; 20 mins to New Braunfels, Schlitterbahn, nearest river tubing, historic Gruene; 25 mins to SA International Airport; 30 mins to Downtown, Riverwalk, Sunset Station, Alamo, Six Flags; 45 mins to Sea World, San Marcos tubing and popular San Marcos shopping outlets; 60 mins to Austin or charming Fredericksburg.

More Info: We can provide you more pix by email of the house and property, to include bathrooms and bedrooms not shown in the ad. We'll also be happy to give recommendations on what to see and do on your stay.

About the Owner

I (Jeff) retired from the US Air Force in 2010; my wife (Gale) continues to teach HS English part time. We've been married since 1984--to each other! Because our three children have flown the coop, we are now empty nesters and are spending time chasing them and their families.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I remembered some fond childhood memories when we pulled up and saw all the deer sitting in your yard. I remember deer roaming the neighborhood when we lived in Deerwood Estates in San Marcos. We loved sitting out by the pool (yes, the cool temps didn't scare off the kids) and having plenty of room for everyone. Thanks again for sharing your home and allowing us to rent it. It is beautiful. What a wonderful neighborhood.

Great Family/Golf Outing!

  • 5 of 5
Jeff,
Me and my brothers had a great time staying at your house. We are very big on family and your house definitely made us feel at "home." We especially enjoyed how clean the house was, how centrally located it was to some great golf courses and even Top Golf (indoor golf; great for when it rains on you...haha), centrally located to some great restaurants ( we liked 54th Street Sports Bar & Grill) and we took advantage of the large entertainment room with big screen tv following our favorite sports teams. We will definitely be back soon for golf outing #2 as the house and amenities definitely exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much for offering this great home for all to enjoy!

Best,
JD Garza

Secluded yet close to everything. Very comfortable accommodations and the perfect place for an event. Back yard is nice to just sit and enjoy the quiet morning and we also got to know the deer very well. Thank You!

What a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5
The deer were extremely friendly and the kids were able to hand feed them. The house was exactly as expected with plenty of room for the 11 of us. The pool was well maintained and the caretaker came almost everyday to check on it during our stay. The house was stocked with all necessary items for our stay. I would definitely stay here again!

Really is a Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at this house during the wedding. Originally we were going to get hotel rooms, but randomly stumbled upon this gem for much less than it would have cost for the number of rooms we would have had to get. It's HUGE, very very well stocked (we weren't expecting it to have so many things already there), entire house was very clean, neighborhood appeared to be fairly upscale too. The location was perfect for us, there are grocery stores/restaurants/etc 5 minutes away, and it's a short drive away from San Antonio as well.

We didn't get to enjoy the house nearly as much as we could have due to us being there for a wedding (they have a ping pong table!). We had some trouble getting the dishwasher to open (we later realized the handle was just stuck) the first day and I had contacted Jeff to ask about it; he responded very quickly and the housekeeper even contacted us to make sure we were taken care of--excellent customer service.

The deer roaming the area was a nice added perk, they would be in the front yard almost every morning!

Owner's Response: Raheel, thanks so much for that great review. I've never had anyone highlight the ping pong table before, but nice to know it was appreciated. Many good wishes to the new bride and groom. Hope you can come back for an anniversary.

Just Perfect! Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
This home was spotless upon arrival and delivered beautifully on each and every expectation. The location was convenient - stores close, pizza delivery, close to San Antonio and an easy drive to Austin. The home was clean and comfortable - clean floors/carpet, spotless bathrooms and space galore! My daughter enjoyed the piano and the family room offered plenty of room for multiple ballet performances! The yard, front and back, were full of entertainment from the deer who visited daily to the pool where my son took his very first dip! This house was perfect for us, because we truly enjoy the conveniences of home and don't mind cleaning up after ourselves while we're on vacation. We were able to embark upon a little adventure in SA and Austin and also spend time swimming and grilling. It is obvious that the home is cared for by the owners as well as guests. We can't wait to return and hope to be able to share with extended family in the future. Highly recommend this home for a family vacation!

Owner's Response: Julie, thanks so much for the great review! I'm pleased to hear that the house worked out so well as your base for exploring both SA and Austin. My cleaning team commented how well you took care of the house as well. We certainly do hope you'll come back.

Location

From the Owner

It's the right location--on the edge of San Antonio near I-35 in the direction of New Braunfels and Austin. I fell in love with the neighborhood when I started looking for a place to live following the completion of my USAF career and our residence on base. The property was perfect for my family of older kids who frequently entertained friends at home.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : San Antonio International Airport at 12 Miles Nearest Golf : Olympia Hills, Northcliff, TPC San Antonio at 5 Miles Nearest Motorway : Interstate 35 at 2.3 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Capparelli's...and many more just another mile at 1 Miles Car: recommended

This home accesses the best of two regions: the San Antonio greater area and the Texas Hill Country. It literally sits on the edge of both. You'll be close to major roads to get you in/out of San Antonio and to its surrounding areas. No doubt, you've already noted that there is a lot to see and do in this area which makes it the Texas vacation destination.

Golf: Bring your sticks. Plenty of great golfing in and around San Antonio, and better yet--it's year round.

Amenities

From the Owner

A quiet, large oak-covered neighborhood where deer roam freely, but so conveniently located to all that San Antonio and New Braunfels have to offer. I have never lived anywhere quite like this neighborhood.
