Long term rental

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to be able to stay at the Barn House for two extended periods of time...July and August and then again mid October thru December. We absolutely adored our time there. Lots of green space, very private and quiet and deer on a daily basis. We were right in the heart of San Antonio, but felt we were in the country.

The pictures don’t do it justice as it’s a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home that has every amenity you could ask for. Rhonda and Paul couldn’t be more wonderful and make sure you have anything you might need.

We will be back again for another long term stay as it has become our home away from home. Thanks for everything, Chris & Dick Gibson

Great San Antonio location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for four adults. Very good location for going to San Antonio sites and surrounding cities. The property was well stocked and each day we enjoyed seeing deer. The owners were extremely helpful with providing information on sites to see and restaurants with great food and environments. The home is seclusive with beautiful surroundings and gated to provide safety. Loved this house!!

A touch of paradise in an amazing State..... we love Texas

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited for 16 days with another couple. I speak for all of us in saying a huge thank y’all to Rhonda and Paul for allowing us to stay in their wonderful barn, and for making us feel so welcome and special. From the initial booking and throughout all dealings with Rhonda it is clear that she loves her role as host and providing a wonderful time is her goal.

The accommodation was perfect for our group of 4. Everything we needed was provided, the beds were very comfortable, the air con worked perfectly in the very hot conditions, and the pool was very much appreciated. The lovely spacious gardens allowed us to find peace and quiet, sun or shade, and allowed us to relax and watch the deer.

Rhonda and Paul both provided us with great advice and tips for places to visit and eat, and their wealth of knowledge and pride in the area is evident from the outset. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and it was a pleasure to be a part of their little piece of paradise for a while.

We all enjoyed our stay in Texas so much that we fully intend to return and explore more of this friendly and vast State.

Thanks again Rhonda and Paul, words here cannot express our thanks enough and we really appreciated your welcome and warmth during our stay

Love love love the Barnhouse !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent our fourth time staying at the Barnhouse and have loved it more and more each time. Our last stay there was a long term stay from mid February to early May. From our past reviews you can see how wonderful the space is, but even more important than feeling we had a new home, we also have a new family.

Rhonda and Paul are constantly updating the Barnhouse. They take care of every little and big detail....anything from putting up a Fiesta wreath on our front door to installing a new garbage disposal to buying a big screen TV for the master bedroom. They are always looking to improve/ upgrade the areas.

We will truly miss our Barnhouse home and our new family.

Excellent Property and Top Notch Owner

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Barn House. It was comfy and well stocked with everything we needed. The house worked great for two couples and Rhonda was wonderful. I’ve rented several properties for vacation and I’ve never had a better experience with the owner. She truly cares! We would definitely look up this property if we came back to San Antonio.
