What Past Guests Are Saying
Deer Trail, Colorado
Looking forward to next time!
Wow, what a great place to stay!! The Smith family made our vacation wonderful and accomodating! The house is the perfect place to stay for multiple reasons. It worked amazingly well for us as a retreat place to hang out with our airman, a meeting place to gather the extended visitors, and we enjoyed the many luxaries of a home (kitchen, washer/dryer, yard, living room, privacy, and large eating area). My only warning is you will want to drink bottled water if you are an out of area visitor. We normally drink bottled water even at home, so the hard water was not an issue for us at all! Very much enjoyed our stay and we will be staying again if possible. Thank you Smith family for making our trip to San antonio extra special!!!

Thanks so much for the kind comments! We enjoyed meeting you all and hope to see you again in the future. Meeting nice folks like you make our family business a joy!
Wonderful hosts, great location
We stayed at this home for a family Christmas celebration. Hosts Richard and Becky went out of their way to make sure we had a great visit--even had the living room all decorated! They are readily available to answer questions or take care of any problems that might arise. House is well-located, walking distance to North Star Mall and other shopping and an easy drive to downtown Sa, the zoo, or the amusement parks on the Northwest side. There's a spacious back yard for kids (yes, even our adult children!) to run off steam. Just keep in mind that this is an older home, not a new property. While the owners have maintained it well, you will have to be willing to tolerate some small things, like not trying to run both showers at the same time. Also, if you plan to do more than light cooking, you would do well to ask the owners in advance what they have in the kitchen--it will serve most people's needs well, but we ended up borrowing a couple of extra items from local relatives to do Chirstmas dinner. Still, these are minor things--I highly recommend this place for the wonderful hosts and great location.

The Best place for families to stay in San Antonio
We have stayed at this rental twice and have been extremely satisfied with our stay. This is a great value for its many family friendly amenities and great location. This is not only good for families with young children, but I can definately see us renting this place as the children grow.
Becky and Richard go out of their way to accomodate their guests and have not missed a detail to make us feel like we are at home.
I feel so lucky to have found this rental.
best vacations ever!!
We really enjoy our vacations! Becky and Richard help us out with everything, they are a very kind family!! Location was awesome, walking distance to north star mall, walmart, etc. The house great!!
Thank you so much for your kindness!!!

Wonderful Place to Stay
Everything was perfect in The Smith's home. They thought of everything to make our stay with our two kids (3 and 1) perfect. Clean, comfortable, great location. Everything went smoothly. I can't say enough nice things about their home and their hospitality.
Great place, it felt like home
This was a great place to stay. When we returned from a day of touristing, it
felt like we returning to our own home. The Smith family supplies almost
everything you might need. Our 7 year old grandson loved the backyard. We
spent every afternoon there so he could play with swings and toys that were
I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a place to stay in
We had a very nice stay in this house!!!
The house is very clean and well maintained. It has plenty of room. The Smith's have done a great job making sure everyone from the youngest to the oldest is taken care of. We highly reccommend this house to any people visiting San Antonio who need more than a motel room or have a big family.
They have directions to things you might not normally think of such as a doctor or grocery store.
Amazing stay and great hospitality!
We had an awesome time at Richard and Becky's house. It was much closer to the attractions than we initially thought (about 15mn), the backyard is like an Ali Baba cavern for kids, they'd be up at 7AM begging to go out and play. The house was spotless, I really enjoyed the layout, and the open floor plan. The kitchen equipment is very very nice and modern. They also have an area with kids toys, a few board/card games, some books, tapes and dvds. It was just fantastic and kept the children fascinated the day it was pouring rain outside.
Richard and Becky are great hosts, kind, alert and responsive to any questions/requests/remarks. They have a wonderful, caring family and outlook.
It's definitely a keeper and we enjoyed our stay and will be back !
