“Amazing B&B!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We stayed here for our anniversary. The staff made us feel very welcome and helped us celebrate our anniversary. They provided suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Breakfast was delicious everyday and had a fun story to do with each meal. The house is beautiful and has many personal touches that allow you to feel at home. The area is beautiful and has many fun, delicious restaurants nearby. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in San Antonio.

I give Eva's 5 stars. Reserving the room & making special accommodations was very easy. I love the rooms & the staff was helpful & also gave us lots of privacy. Breakfast was absolutely Delicious! Tito's Cantina was within walking distance and had great food & drinks. My husband joined me on a business trip making this trip pleasantly fun.

Every detail of a perfect romantic weekend was attended to by Deborah and her staff. The warmth of her character permeates through the house, and her gourmet breakfasts are incredible! The bluebonnet room was beautiful, and we especially enjoyed the porch swing. Thank you, Deborah! You have a gift for hospitality!

It was an overall experience to stay here. First, great location. Less than a mile to riverwalk/Alamo/towers of America. Second, great attention to guests. When we arrived we were personally given a tour around the five bedroom house. Deborah was very informative, but she also went out of her way to give us advice on what to do or answer any questions we had. This is a relaxing atmosphere, but close enough to go out during the day/night. Surprised they have direct tv, Netflix, Apple TV (not that you will be using it). Great breakfast and snacks (wine,nuts, small desserts). Cozy and quaint...would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing place to stay. We stayed in the Lily room. Only room on the first floor, and it was very quiet during the day and night. Small bathroom, wouldn't recommend for tall/large guests.

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...

There is one word to summarize our guest experiences - "amazing"! Thank you for your feedback and we loved having you as our guest. With each guest we learn and we grow. As new business owners, it is important to us that we dot the "i" and cross the "t"s. Thank you for letting us know we are doing well. The next time you are in this part of the world, if you cannot stay please stop by and say hello.
