Cozy room is comfortable and well appointed with a queen-size bed. It is semi-detached with its own entrance and lots of privacy. The bath is lovely with an original claw-foot tub. You will have access to this historic house and all outdoor spaces.

The space

Beautiful 1920 Spanish Colonial designed by a prominent San Antonio architect. The room and bath are private with their own entrance as well as an adjacent sitting room with a fireplace and large flat screen television with cable and more. The bath is lovely with an original claw-foot tub. The home is large and comfortable with modern kitchen, wfi, cable, original stained glass, and a large fireplace.
The linens are high quality cotton and sun dried and the towels are thick and large. I use only non-toxic cleaners.

Guest access

Guests will have access to modern kitchen, dining room, living room, sun room, laundry facilities and access to and all outdoor spaces (small balcony, veranda, and back yard with small rose garden). Adjacent to the bed and bath is a sitting room with a fireplace and large flat screen television for guest use.

Interaction with guests

We will consider guests as housemates and hope they will make themselves at home! We are available for conversations or for information or we can leave you some space for well-earned privacy! We are here to help make your trip the best it can be.

Other things to note

We have had two slightly negative remarks in our reviews this year. One was a small complaint about the air conditioner's loudness. We replaced it. The other was a request for a television in the bedroom. We were unable to accommodate, but we have added a sitting room adjacent to the room with a fireplace and large screen television with Netflix and cable. A note about our cleaning policy: I use mostly natural, home-made nontoxic products to clean and I sanitize fixtures, doorknobs, light switches, etc. for your safety.

Absolutely loved Mark & Cynthia and their home. The space was perfect for my two-day visit, and I loved that it was quiet, cool, and away from the sun—much-needed in San Antonio in August! Had a wonderful chat with the hosts over breakfast, and Mark even drove me to the airport to pick up my rental car. I've been using AirBnb for a while now, and this was the most lovely experience I've had yet—perfect space and wonderful hosts who went above and beyond!

Mark and Cynthia were absolutely lovely, and so was their place. Exactly as described, very clean and we felt totally at home. Such a great space - we loved being able to use the den too! They were so kind and helpful, providing loads of great local information. Very convenient location too - great enchiladas round the corner(!) and a cheap ($6) uber into the city centre. Would definitely stay again!

A beautiful house just outside the city centre, own room and en suite too! Bus is about 10-15 ride to the house at $1.20! Highly recommend if your in the area. Mark & Cynthia are a lovely couple too, very keen to help you make your time in SA as good as it can be. Give you your own space if you want or keen to chat to find out about your trip or share their own stories. Cynthia even dropped us at the airport at 3:45am which sums her up. Lovely women!

Mark and Cynthia are great hosts. Communication with them was easy. We met them at check in when they gave us the tour of their house. Their house is a short 10 min drive from the city and an easy drive to the major highways. Their house is spacious and clean. The room we rented had its own entrance and bathroom which was great. The bed and pillows were super comfortable and the towels were XL and perfect! We didn't get a chance to make good use of the tub unfortunately. Overall I had an amazing stay and will definitely keep Mark and Cynthia in mind the next time I head down.
