    Overall our stay was great. My brother, mom and I went to visit family around the corner from the Vrbo so the location was very convenient. My mom is 86 so luckily the layout is nice with one bedroom downstairs and two upstairs. It’s a reverse floor plan so kitchen and den are downstairs. You are close to everything yet not packed into a neighborhood. The property is very pretty. One thing to note is that it’s right next to a busy road. There is road noise when you’re outside. The listing conveys a quiet rural setting but it is not. The house is well stocked and feels safe overall. The owner is very friendly and lives a short walk away on property. He also has a large breed dog who is extremely friendly and slightly invasive. Just tell the owner directly and he’ll put the dog away if he’s a bother. The property has old doors (2) which can only be locked from the inside with the exception of the front door so only one key for one door which was tough to juggle with an elderly person. The location was perfect for us so we would stay there again.

  • Third year in a row


    This was our third year in a row to stay. This is a unique house, very comfortable and clean in a private setting with space. Easy access to Helotes, NW San Antonio and the Hill Country.
