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!!
My family of 4 including 2 daughters ages 11 & 14 stayed 9 nights and enjoyed the hospitality and comfort of this property. All the great reviews tell you. I was there for a conference and to visit wife's family. It's 25 minutes from SAT, downtown, and Aquatica- water park depending on traffic; 15 minutes to La Cantera Resort and shops and 6 Flags. Historic Fredericksburg is about an hour(50 mins.on a good day) away- we visited family there, shops, rodeo, nightly show of bats coming out of old train tunnel, visited Luckenbach, rode horses and atv's. Gated on pretty grounds(no new dog- yet), a couple of cats(friendly PB and shy Freeway), you stay in the back of the 3 acres or so in a clean, beautifully remodeled barn. Covered parking, shaded outdoor sitting area among trees and flowers and deer eating the flowers, charcoal BBQ's if you want; inside, the downstairs has a living area and pullout sofa(1 girl stayed here), laundry and board games; upstairs: very fully stocked kitchen, living room with BlueRay player and large TV, 2 baths( one with large tub), 2 BR's, very large walk-in closet in master- my youngest slept in here for one night just for fun, TV in master, too. Good WIFI. Beds are comfy; window seats with nice views- very peaceful. Rhonda was gone, but Paul kept an eye on us. On the grounds are the owners house, a private cottage for their friend, old treehouse( not for use), swing set, and small, but just the right temp pool by the main house. The pool is over my head on the deep end; we used it frequently and ate grapefruit from their tree next to it. HEB grocery near or Walmart a bit farther. Somewhat rundown but interesting Buddhist Temple across the street. Everything's close-by, tons of restaurants- they have a nice, personal guide and book/mags to tell you what to do and where to eat, or just ask the owners. We visited the Alamo, Riverwalk, Rainforest Café, McNay Museum(my favorite for the grounds and amazing Impressionistic Art), missions: Aquatica was the girls favorite for the Stingray encounter and the fun water rides. Go early to beat crowds. Lots of neat nearby towns/wineries to visit. San Antonio is not as hot or muggy as Houston, and it has a lot to offer. Great host, quiet, secure, country feel location. We'll return!
The Texas Barn was very clean and well stocked with everything you will need. The location of the property,private but close to things. LOVED IT!!! (Comfortably bed)
The apartment is very comfortable and charming. The grounds are lovely. The owners were so helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. Enjoyed visiting with them and with some other very nice people we met while there. We will be back!
We loved staying here. There is a beautiful home in front of the "barn" and a guest house beside it that someone lives in. There's almost always someone there to keep an eye out. With that said this is a gated property with a wall so it is very secure! Loved watching the deer in mornings and evenings! Loved sitting on the patio on the lawn. All of that to say I'd for sure stay here again. The property owners are very nice and warm people. I would encourage anyone to check it out. Has had some updates but could use a little more on the inside. Thank you!!!
The barn house was clean as a whistle and well stocked. Rhonda was could not have been nicer. The property was beautiful and we enjoyed the pool and watching the deer. Good location for San Antonio attractions. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Excellent place to stay. Bed was very comfortable, and bedding was high quality. Very clean, and homey. All the comforts of home away from home. Kitchen fully stocked with all but food, and then some stable seasons are there also. Laundry is also onsite and convenient in the home also. We BBQ by the pool, played board games, and watched some TV. Stores are close, quiet neighborhood, and all around I was very pleased. Cant say enough. Would stay again, if in San Antonio.
Loved it, Beautiful property, wonderful hosts!!! Thanks Rhonda and Paul, you made Larry, Penelope, and I feel very much at home!!!! highly recommended
The Texas Barn is charming, comfortable, clean and quiet. From the warm arrival welcome from Rhonda to the morning deer strolling in the yard, our stay at The Barn couldn't have been nicer. We found everything we needed (Kitchen was great), living/dining area was comfy and felt like home. Rhonda loaded us up with lots of great local info, and enabled us to come and go as we pleased to enjoy our Texas Thanksgiving rendezvous (from Northern Michigan and Southern California). The location really worked out well, too. Easy access to the sights (Alamo, River Walk, etc.), then "home" to the peace and quiet of The Barn. Texas style! Perfect! Thank you, Rhonda!
This was the perfect place for an out-of-towner to recover after surgery. Rhonda was a joy to work with before, during and after our stay. The apartment is clean and comfortable and fully stocked with all needed supplies. It was a bonus to have beautiful grounds to use for quiet walks and deer watching. Looking forward to returning during our next visit to San Antonio.
Great location, well appointed, high caliber linens, very comfortable. Great advice from host on things to do. We enjoyed many nearby communities, good food and a lot of history. And holiday decorations to boot! Thanks Rhonda and Paul!
Wonderful private location. Well appointed kitchen and living areas. Comfortable sleeping with luscious sheets. Excellent travel tips from our hosts with close proximity to a plethora of hiking, restaurants and shopping. Great NW San Antonio location with easy access to RiverWalk, Austin, and Hill Country. Amazed by our Christmas decorations-thank you Rhonda and Paul for your hospitality-Thoroughly enjoyed the Texas Barn and San Antonio. Hart and Robin Semrau
