We put a lot of thought into our first Airbnb! With unique and thoughtful touches: pet-friendly amenities, a 4 car driveway, a tall sound-reducing privacy fence, an Xbox Series S, 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos Surround Sound, premium cookware & a picture-perfect backyard!

The space
Becky and I put a lot of thought into every room and outdoor space of our first Airbnb home. We've traveled a lot ourselves and we’re excited to create a vacation rental that encompasses everything we’ve learned over the years - from parking, to outdoor spaces, bedrooms, and most importantly, the living room and kitchen. We wanted to create a space that your family and friends can make memories in, instead of just a space to sleep. In our description we'll start at the front of the property and end with the backyard!

Parking & Front Yard:
One of the things we noticed that few hosts put thought into is the parking situation. There’s nothing worse than booking a place for you and your friends only to find that there is limited parking or you have to park in the street. We completely renovated the front yard space so that 4 (maybe more) cars can easily park in our extended driveway, behind a gate! The driveway extends all the way down the side of the house! The entire yard, including the backyard is fenced in, ideal for bringing your dog! Our house is also very well lit and features security cameras for keeping an eye on your vehicles, and the front of the house. NOTE: We do not monitor security cameras, we would only look at them upon your request, or in the case of an incident.

Living Room:
The living room is such a key space for group gatherings. Whether you have 2 people or 8 people in your group, along with the backyard, the living room is one of the most important spaces in the house. Most rentals feature a cheap Smart TV, some nice décor, a couch and little else of note. Our goal is to elevate our guest’s downtime during their visit in San Antonio. Here’s a few of the things we included: Live TV (perfect for sports!) A very nice 4k HDR Dolby Vision TV, a Xbox Series S (next gen) console, a 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos surround sound system, a couch that pulls out, a tall, long table behind the couch for extra seating in front of the TV and more! Below is a bit more detail about the tech.

While you're here you can play Next Gen 4k gaming on our disc-less Xbox Series X/S with our house subscription to Xbox Ultimate Game Pass. Ultimate game pass will give you access to over 100 next gen and classic Xbox games like Halo infinite, Grand Theft Auto, Madden 21, Fifa 21, Forza Horizon 5 & many more! It would be pointless to have a next gen gaming console without a TV that can take advantage of it. That’s why we purchased a huge, colorful TV that will allow you to play these games in 4k HDR at 60hz. We are also including our huge movie library of 500+ movies that include new releases like the new James Bond Movie “No Time to Die”, GhostBusters: Afterlife and Venom: Carnage. We have plenty of classics as well, including Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones trilogy and Terminator 2. You can enjoy all these movies and games with our 5.1.4 surround sound system including Dolby Atmos technology that immerses the entire living room in surround sound! In addition to live TV we also included: Disney Plus, Hulu, Netflix & HBO Max! So unlike other Airbnb’s you can gather your friends and family for fun party games or to watch your favorite sports team!

Kitchen:
We've found that the kitchen is another overlooked aspect in nearly every rental we have seen. You won’t find cheap pots and pans or missing kitchen equipment here! With plenty of counter space, high end kitchen equipment and an open kitchen concept, cooking at our Airbnb rental will be fun instead of a chore! We included kitchen basics, like silverware, cutting boards, cooking tools, premium knives for chopping and for cutting food, measuring cups and spoons and baking pans. We also included things like a blender and an instant pot that can be used as a slow cooker for things like dip! In the kitchen you will also find a fully stocked coffee station featuring a Keurig that has both drip coffee and a K-cup brewer. We of course include the coffee, creamers and sweeteners!

Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Utility Room:
We have 3 bedrooms total, each with a 4k smart TV and a smart speaker you can use to play music, as an alarm to wake you up in the morning and even as a white noise machine! The master bedroom features a king sized bed, walk-in closet and a very nice bathroom. Bedroom 2 features a queen sized bed. Bedroom 3 features a queen sized bed and a Twin XL bed. We didn't cheap out on the mattresses either, all beds are super comfortable! After including the pullout bed in the living room couch, and a rollaway bed in the master bedroom closet, the total bed count is 6.

Our newly renovated bathrooms are also loaded with everything you need, including basics like toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, plenty of clean towels, body soap and more. We also have blow dryers in the bathrooms as well! Our utility room has a top load washer and front load dryer. We include a iron, ironing board, laundry soap and dryer sheets!

Backyard:
Our favorite space and one that we think you and your group can really enjoy and make some new memories in! Starting with our solid wood gazebo, which fits the backyard perfectly in size and style. It has mosquito nets and a bar ledge that can be used as a table for food or beverages. We also built a custom and unique privacy fence around our property. The fence is tall and makes the backyard feel very private, like nobody else is around… despite being in the middle of a busy city! You'll have a hard time finding another backyard that looks this good on Airbnb!

But we know that it can’t just look good. We've also noticed that so many other Airbnb hosts seem to prioritize looks over substance. We wanted to take a stab at a backyard that provides both at a high level. Our backyard has some open spaces, yard games like Corn Hole and giant Jenga, a barrel style BBQ grill with a built in smoker on the side, comfy outdoor furniture and even a dog park style pet waste station that will have plenty of dog bags for picking up after your pet! The pet waste station will keep the backyard clean and smell free! The way the backyard space lights up at night is fantastic too! Its definitely a space that can elevate your late nights in San Antonio!

Notes:
We have premium high-speed internet with a mesh system so that the entire property is covered is super fast internet access!

We will do our best to make sure there is plenty of propane for the fire pit, but we do not provide charcoal or wood for the BBQ grill/ Smoker

The property is fenced in, but the front gate may have spaces that smaller dogs can squeeze through, if you have a small dog and are concerned about this, we may be able to provide amenities to help out, just ask!

We provide a Pack n' Play and High Chair (in the front bedroom closet), and can also provide other child proof amenities if requested!

Where you’ll be

San Antonio, Texas, United States

First, we want to say that this neighborhood and this house are in a completely safe area, far away from any part of the city that may be considered dangerous or unwelcoming. As a matter of fact, if you do an internet search for “Riverside Neighborhood San Antonio facts” Then look at the “is this neighborhood safe” section it will say “extremely safe”! Having said that, we feel its important to be completely upfront about the area and give you the most accurate description possible.

The neighborhood is known as “Riverside” and is one of the older neighborhoods in San Antonio. Like all neighborhoods that are close to downtown, there are some properties that are very nice and some that are a bit run down and need updates. Most homes have been updated recently, just not all of them! Also, this neighborhood has mixed-income homeowners. It’s not unusual to see a million-dollar home next door to a house that could be considered run down. With the exception of the nearby neighborhood of King William, all neighborhoods within a 10-mile radius are mixed-income. To us, this is a great thing. The mixed-income neighborhoods around downtown keep the neighborhoods unique, diverse, and culturally relevant, which is important if you truly want to experience life in San Antonio. Many families in Riverside have owned property around downtown for generations. If you talk to some of them, they love talking about San Antonio’s history and how things have developed. San Antonians in general are proud of where they live, and that's especially true of the residents of Riverside!

The neighborhood and this house are very close to some amazing amenities and attractions that you simply can not find in other San Antonio neighborhoods. While we are just a 5-minute drive from the south end of the Riverwalk, we won’t exaggerate and tell you the house is walking distance or “just minutes” away from the Riverwalk and the Alamo (unlike nearly every Airbnb I see within 20 minutes of downtown). However, I can proudly say we are minutes away from the San Antonio River, where the Riverwalk ends and the Mission Trail begins! This is one of the most underrated parts of downtown SA. You will be minutes from one of the best biking and hiking trails in Texas. The Mission Trail runs alongside the San Antonio River for several miles and has exits for various Missions and Parks. The closest park to the house is Confluence Park. I highly recommend checking this out! You will also be less than a 10-minute drive from places like the Alamodome, the Alamo, the RiverCenter Mall, The Henry B Gonzales Convention Center, South Town, The Pearl Brewery, and of course all parts of the Riverwalk!

Notes:
This house is very close to the highway (I-10). It is possible to hear highway noise when outside in the backyard, but you won’t be able to hear it while inside the home. Being near the Highway makes traveling around the city very fast, especially when it's not rush hour!

There are several breweries in the area! The entire neighborhood was built around breweries, namely the now empty (but under renovation) Lone Star Brewery. The area has a long history of craft beer brewing and they range from small and local, to big and regionally distributed beer companies. This is a perfect location to start a brewery tour!

I highly recommend renting an electric bike to explore the Mission Trail. There are a few bike rental places as well as city bike stations around the area!

Although the area is not very walkable, Uber and other ride-sharing options are very cheap when going anywhere around downtown

Lackland Air Force base is about 7 miles away and about a 15-20 minute drive. Fort Sam Houston is about 4.5 miles away and also takes about 15-20 minutes to drive. We welcome military and military families!

As avid travelers ourselves, we are super excited to finally open our first Airbnb! We are happily married with two amazing children. Our goal is to put everything we've learned over the years staying at various vacation rentals with our children, family and friends into our Airbnb home. We feel there are many hosts that would rather make a quick buck than invest in the type of rental that elevates groups of friends and families' time together. This is our first try, and we are open to more suggestions!

I (Zack) moved here from Salt Lake when I was a teenager in the early 2000s and my wife (Becky) is from San Antonio. We love our city and we know it very well! Our first investment property is located in one of the most unique, friendly, and convenient neighborhoods in San Antonio, known as "Riverside". Like most neighborhoods around downtown, its not perfect, but if you ask the locals, they wouldn't want it any other way!

During your stay

We provide you with an access code for the front and back doors that you can use for your entire stay. So no need to schedule a time to meet us for keys or anything like that. Also, we live in San Antonio and know it well. An unfortunate trend has started with Airbnb Hosts in San Antonio where people are buying homes here and renting them out despite living nowhere near San Antonio. These are the hosts that give “local” tips they find on Trip Advisor or internet guides and have experienced little of San Antonio. Becky grew up in San Antonio and Zack has lived here since he was a teenager, so we encourage you to take advantage of this by asking us for our recommendations and tips. We are eager to show our guests what we love about San Antonio! Hopefully, when you leave, you'll love it too!
