About Cynthia Bell

I was born and raised in San Antonio. Having my vacation home near so many things to do brings me joy to see the thrill of others enjoy as well. I am proud to say that being close to SeaWorld and Fiesta Texas along with Lackland Air Force Base keeps me content to share my beautiful home.

But I must say I enjoy doing this. God willing I will be looking into purchasing another home for others to enjoy.

Cynthia Bell purchased this house in 1991

Stay at your own risk

  • 2 of 5

I give 2 stars because the home its self was okay..BUT the customer service from the home owner sucks..my family an i didnt arrive until late so it was understandable that no one could come out...but i would think that someone would have come to greet us the next day..if not her someone who is also responsible for the home..so i had to leave the money on the table and someone came to pick it up while my family was OUT...then there was an issue about the door...in which it came off the hinge..no it wasn't reported in the beginning because..WHO LOOKS TO SEE IF THE DOOR IS FALLING DOWN??? And once opened it stayed open until end of stay...so i notified the home owner and she stated " i am aware.. ect..and we are in the process of redoing that door because we previously had to break it down"...so the next few days I receive a text.."NOT A CALL" about the same door I previously told her about...then she tells me that someone had to be swinging on the door..the thing is we had a house full of adults..(she would know this had she come to greet us) but any who my family pretty much got the blame for damage..BECAUSE IF AN ADULT SWINGS ON A DOOR...the whole door would come down because most of us were on the heavy side..for all i know this could be a scam on their part..BECAUSE someone did come into the house while my family was out..who's to say the didnt pull on it a little knowing it was damages.. to assure they keep the damage deposit.. i would not stay here EVER again... the home owner was not even aware that her TV was damaged which shows she is not doing a thorough check of the home..so if she happens to see something new that has been there but no one ever noticed..your family could be the next to blame...

Excellent Vacation Rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was great! It was nice, clean and had everything we could need or want. The house looks better than the pictures. My family and I enjoyed the house. Cynthia was great she responded to any issue's we had which was only one. The house had enough room to comfortably accommodate my family of 10 which included children. I definitely would recommend this place to everyone. It was our home away from home. when we come back to San Antonio we will be looking forward to staying here again... Thank you Cynthia for sharing your house with my family. God bless!!

Convenient and family friendly

  • 4 of 5

This home is in a great location. Close to six flags, In-N-Out, HEB, and lots of others. I do wish the community pool was closer to the house. The pool and park with basketball, were nice to use.

The owner was helpful, and kind. The house was well maintained and had anything you could need.

Disappointing & Frustrating

  • 2 of 5

Overall things were fine- however there were a few things we feel the need to pass along that created obstacles and lots of frustration for our family.

-dishwasher handle was broken and we were unable to wash dishes. Owner had to come over to start it for us- we were out of plates & forks. Next day we tried and tried to get it to work- still unable. So again we had a house full of people for BMT graduation with no clean forks or plates or dish drainer to wash by hand. Again.

- owner told me twice that there was leftover grill supplies (charcoal/fluid) so with those conversations we didn't bring any. In fact there were only 7 pieces of charcoal. Again- house full of people with no grill for hamburgers.

-lots of cooking items, but no 13x9 dish. Which we needed twice. Had to cook casserole in big skillet in he oven and buy a disposable dish.

- the brown towels smelled like mildew.

- DVD player didn't work in living room- couldn't watch favorite family movies with our Airmen.

-dining chairs cushion finish was peeling off and sticking to our legs and made a mess under the table.

- plug in air freshener had broken glass (which she was aware of) and was so strong you could smell it on the front porch before door was opened.

We chose a house for the home feel and amenities but this stay was the worst we've had from VRBO.

Owner's Response: Upon arrival of the guest I informed her that I had guest that leave charcoal behind and fuel...I leave it behind as I informed her. I do this out of courtesy. Along with spices and other things. I was never told about it until the last day of her stay! Since her stay I have removed any plug ins( which was only 1) and replaced my home with a new dishwasher. I respect any comments made to better improve my home. I will continue to meet any needs I can. Thank you for your reply.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

The home needs a deep cleaning. The mop boards were dirty, the carpets are stained. The sheets and pillowcases were stained, light bulbs were burned out in the master bedroom and master bathroom. Half an hour before we arrived, the owner told me she would stop by the next day to bring toiletries the previous tenant took with them. She mentioned laundry detergent, but never mentioned we didn't have toilet paper. We had to go to the grocery store right away and buy toilet paper. The final straw was seeing a live cockroach on its back in the hallway the next morning. We rented the home for 3 nights but left after the first night.

Owner's Response: I asked the guest if they wanted for me to meet but she said she was fine. If she had questions I asked her to call. Master ceiling fan requires 3 pulls for all 4 lights. So that was not the issue. Once again upon arrival I was not told about any issues of the house. Due to 2 comments of reviews..I will be present or have someone present for all check ins.
