San Antonio's historic overview:
With neither the modern skyline of an oil town, nor the tumbleweed-strewn landscape of the Wild West, attractive and festive SAN ANTONIO looks nothing like the stereotypical image of Texas – despite being pivotal in the state's history. Standing at a geographical crossroads, it encapsulates the complex social and ethnic mixes of all Texas. Although the Europeans, among others, have made a strong contribution to its architecture, cuisine and music, today's San Antonio is predominantly Hispanic: abundant Tex-Mex restaurants, the prevalent Catholicism, the newly expanded Mexican Cultural Institute and advertising billboards in Spanish all attest to a long history of "Texican" culture.
Founded in 1691 by Spanish missionaries, San Antonio became a military garrison in 1718, and was settled by the Anglos in the 1720s and 1730s under Austin's colonization program. It is most famous for the legendary Battle of the Alamo in 1836, when the Mexican General Santa Anna, seeking to curb the aspirations of the Anglo-Americans, wiped out a band of Texan volunteers: hence San Antonio's claim to be the "birthplace of the revolution," borne out by its role during Texas's ten subsequent years of independence. After the Civil War, it became a hard drinking, hard fighting "sin city," at the heart of the Texas cattle and oil empires. Drastic floods in the 1920s wiped out much of the downtown area, but the sensitive WPA program, which revitalized two of the city's prettiest sites, La Villita and the River Walk, laid the foundations for its future as a major tourist destination. San Antonio is now the eighth largest city in the US, but it retains an unhurried, organic feel, thanks to a winning combination of small town warmth, respect for diversity and a self-confidence rooted in its own history.

Our Guest Reviews
Very clean every thing I needed was their towels soap ect. Enough room and very safe and neighbor hood.
I recently stayed at this location and found the property to be sufficient for the needs that I had for the weekend. The home is spacious and accommodating with a full kitchen that includes a lot of amenities to help you prepare your meals. Having the property manager of the home next door was a plus because she was able to assist with the TV, internet connection when it was lost, as well as providing access to the outdoor grill. I happened to be there to attend a men's ministry event and did not bring my wife so the atmosphere worked for my needs. My wife would not have been comfortable because the furnishings in the seating area are not very comfortable or inviting and could use some updating. There were some minor issues with insects that could be easily rectified. This is a great place for the person who is comfortable being in an outdoor environment because of the arid garden landscapes in the front and back yard. The owner and property manager are very responsive and accommodating and went out of their way to ensure the information and assistance that I requested was received. I would use the facility again for my personal needs but not a place I would take my wife because she is used to a more upscale experience. My only suggestion regarding payment processing would be to include the $95.00 cleaning fee in the initial payment process and not as a note. I have no problem with the fee for cleaning but think it would be more beneficial to clients to see it in a more prominent location.
We had such a great time in San Antonio!! Having such a great place to stay played a big part in the overall experience. The house is centrally located. Sheri was great! She was available when needed, very friendly, and really cared about making sure we were satisfied. It was great to have a lot of space and for everyone to be able to have their own privacy. It was really neat to be able to look at all of the cool things to look at in the house. It was a bonus for the kids to have access to internet and cable during down time. The house is centrally located. There were plenty of stores and restaurants close. We did not have to go more than 30 minutes to get to anywhere. This is a great place to stay when in San Antonio!! We will be back!!
The neighbors next door, who are in charge of taking care of the place were wonderful. Very pleasant humble people. They actually helped my sisters and I when our car wouldn't start. House is well kept. No complaints.
