Perfect place to stage family San Antonio vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at The Texas Barn-House. It was comfortable, clean and located on a beautiful estate. Though it's in San Antonio and not far from the main attractions (for us it was Alamo, Riverwalk, Sea World, Fantastic Caverns, etc with the kids) we loved that it felt like we were in the country. Nice and quiet. And LOTS of deer. Everywhere. Even in the heat of the day. The master bed/bath was perfect for the wife and me and we put the kids in the second room. Kids liked having the big tv to watch when we were at the house in between adventures. We cooked meals there (only 1.5 miles to fantastic grocery store) and had all the equipment we needed. Even used the pool. Great hospitality, wonderful owners and a fantastic property that feels like a secluded country escape right in the heart of NW San Antonio. We will be back. Thanks for having us!

Beautiful property ... convenient but quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, just minutes away from restaurants and stores but feels like it is in the country. Very quiet. In the evening, I counted 12 deer in the lot next door. Very clean and comfortable.

Amazing Experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time of booking all throughout my stay Rhonda and Paul were so helpful and made me feel so at home - Buddy did also. The property and barn house are beautiful and so peaceful. The barn house is fully loaded with everything I needed to make my stay so comfortable. I really appreciated coming home every night to this awesome place.

Thank you Rhonda, Paul, and Buddy for such an amazing experience!

Single best VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5

I can't overstate the quality of the Barn...and there aren't enough words to do it justice in a simple paragraph.

I could try, "Beautiful, elegant, relaxed, country-chic." But there's more to it...every little detail of the residence is perfect. Even better, it's like you're in the middle of nowhere while being in the middle of everything! This 1 square mile of rural estates sits smack in the middle of San Antonio. You can't hear ANY urban noise, traffic noise or even human noise! The grounds & gardens are like a manicured retreat...fireflies filled the evening air. The Barn gives you a well-appointed home in a country estate-like setting while being close to everything San Antonio has to offer. You can't do better. No way.

A very relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

Thank you to Paul and Rhonda who were very accommodating hosts. The Texas Barn House has all of the amenities that make you feel at home away from home. The location was very central and it was easy to get to everywhere we wanted to go. We loved Texas and hope to return one day and experience more of what this wonderful state has to offer.
