We love front porches in South Town!
The king bedroom with Sterns and Foster mattress is all about comfort.
Another master bedroom angle
1920s piano graces the front bedroom, which features a plush Indian carpet and 19th C armoire.
Bright and comfortable double bed in the rear bedroom is an adjustable and massaging bed!
Our 'farmhouse in the city' has a full kitchen with all you need.
The kitchen was originally the back porch. Note the window to the living room. Long leaf pine floors
Window to living room makes the cook feel connected!
The floor plan is open from the back 'porch room' with  sleep/sofa all the way to the livingroom.
Our front porch.
1920s clawfoot tub is original to house. With shower surround in master bathroom.
Throug the kitchen window toward the living room. A sofa slipcover
Flat screen TV and comfortable, casual seating  emphasizes a relaxed at-home feel.
The second bathroom has a modern tub and shower but still reveals plenty of character of the house!

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
San Antonio, Texas
You cannot find a better location for seeing San Antonio than from our charming bungalow in the heart of the city! Park the car and walk throughout our neighborhood and the downtown to really get a San Antonio experience. Parks, arts galleries and activities, restaurants, historic sites, live music, cultural venues, movie theaters, comedy clubs and night clubs, and even places to hike, bike, golf, kayak, and shoot hoops -- it's all within a walk from here! This 1880 house was our home for seven years and is still my daughter's favorite house. Artists, writers, composers, critics, and one 'Dame of the British Empire' have made it a temporary home, and the aesthetic is well suited to 'creatives'!

Built in 1880, this is the oldest house on the street. Followers of "Fixer Upper" will enjoy the authenticity...

This home has everything you need to be comfortable. The beds are comfortable and the showers have good pressure and good temperature. The A/C worked well and was a pleasure to return to after a long day at the Convention Center. It was very easy to get from this location to anywhere downtown with a quick inexpensive Uber ride (usually under $5). But this home had character as well - Retha has done a beautiful...

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 in this neighborhood, so streets were not busy, and you could walk to restaurants which...

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 the Riverwalk when the heat allowed and additionally all the golf courses we picked were...
