Overview
Rental Home /
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
San Antonio, Texas
This historic 19th century home in the heart of downtown San Antonio is fully furnished and sleep 10 (extra fee may apply for more than 8 guests). 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, complete kitchen and laundry room as well as living and dining areas. Casual but sophisticated furnishings accent your home away from home. This character-filled beauty was dilapidated when we bought it in 2003 but we lived there for several years and lovingly worked to make it habitable for 20th Century users (us) while still revealing its historic character. My daughter and I still stay here when we are in San Antonio. Built in 1880, this is the oldest house on the street. The original exterior porch is now the kitchen, where you can see authentic details of construction, waterfall siding, and a chimney flu from the original placement of an old Franklin stove.

Our family group of eight - five adults and three children ages 8-11, stayed three nights in this Historic District home. It has been uniquely remodeled to modernize the kitchen and bathrooms while keeping the old, historic nature of the house. The neighborhood was comfortable and safe and very close to the RiverWalk and Alamo. Not a lot of tourists... more

I wanted to have a golf trip and also do family time and this location worked out wonderfully. We travelled with a 8 month old and were very happy with how Retha accomodated us and made sure we had everything we needed. The house is great with a lot of historic nuances to it. We were able to walk to... more
