“Very Pleasant”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We only stayed one night on our way through San Antonio but we were so glad we did! Deborah is truly a delight and made our stay worthwhile. Every aspect of the house was meticulously maintained and cared for and you really felt the love. The food was wonderful. It was a truly unique experience. Thank you to Deborah.

We stayed recently for our wedding getaway and had a wonderful ( albeit too short) stay with Deborah. Deborah took the time to give us lots of information about the area and gave great suggestions for dining. We stayed in the Lavender room and especially loved sitting on the lovely veranda in the morning. We were looking for something way more personal than a standard hotel and Deborah certainly delivered a great experience. We hope to come back again.

Room Tip: If you are tall ( or larger) you may want to chose one of the rooms that contain a stand up shower.

We have only good words for Eva's Escape and Deborah. We had a wonderful week there.
The house is awesome. Really beautiful, capriciously decorated in each detail, maintained with close attention. Chandeliers, fire place, furniture, flowers, mirrors, dish ware... simply wonderful.
It's located in a very beautiful neighborhood, in walk distance to Alamo, River Side, Convention Center. We left the car at the inn and walked most of the time.
We stayed for five days at the Bluebonnet bedroom, which is wonderful, as all the building. Loved the mattress, pillows, linens and all details it had. Very comfortable. The bathroom is also very good and beautiful, with a bath tub and a shower separated and toiletries.
The breakfast is really special. Pancakes, waffles, baked oatmeal, sausages, fruits, vegetables... And if you still find something missing Deborah provides it immediately with a smile on the face, in my case: hot chocolate. I loved the red velvet pancake, would repeat it many times in my life!
During afternoon we had some special snacks and sweets all fancy prepared by Deborah. They were so good that lead us back "home" to discover it!
And as we talked about Deborah, the B&B owner, she was always very helpful and gave us very special recommendations about restaurants and things to do. So polite and welcoming, Deborah made us feel at home.
I should point two problems we met:
1) we didn't want to leave the B&B, we came for 2 days and rested for 5!; and
2) will be hard to find another B&B like this around world;
To finish: an unforgettable experience in a five star B&B where we felt at home.
Thanks Deborah, was really memorable!

Room Tip: As a B&B Deborah was waiting for us during an adjusted period. As we had a delayed flight I just...

A lot of people do not realize staying at a bed and breakfast for business is an excellent option. We offer a place for a quiet, relazxing retreat after a busy day. You can stay connected with free wi-fi and you are treated like a VIP! Talk with the innnkeeper about meeting space. A meeting, break-out session, hospitality event, etc. at a bed and breakfast is a great alternative to the convention center or a large hotel.

We recently were guests at this delightful inn. Deborah and her staff aim to please in every way imaginable.....you will feel very SPECIAL as one of their guests. Our bed was extremely comfy and the sheets were amazing! Just wait 'til you have their breakfast.....truly fit for a king (or queen!). We also enjoyed the convenient location, close to good restaurants and within walking distance of the Riverwalk. They are members of the Texas Bed and Breakfast Association, which inspects the properties of all their members. I'm sure these folks passed with flying colors!!

It is an honor when B&B innkeepers stay at another B&B. It is a double honor when they rave about your service! Thank you for choosing us as your San Antonio lodging choice.

By far the best way to celebrate a 50th birthday and spend a girl's weekend in San Antonio! We were given a tour of the beautiful inn, shown our room and welcomed with a bottle of Champagne! Breakfast was delicious and served with such elegant style and Deborah, the innkeeper, was so helpful with maps and advice on restaurants and attractions. Every afternoon there were wine, nuts, and treats to enjoy. Our immaculate room was stocked with waters, robes, drinks, and came with a complimentary movie channel. The staff at the inn were so kind and helpful that we all just felt like the luckiest guests all weekend! Eva's Escape has raised the bar for this avid B&B guest and I will for sure be returning to the gem of the King William area in San Antonio again!
