"Don't think twice, book now! This was hands down the best experience I've had with a vacation rental, anywhere. The property manager and hosts had superb customer service and hospitality, the home was better than described, fully stocked and clean with breathtaking views. Not to mention the location and comfort we experienced was perfect, not far from airport and very close to a lot of groceries and shopping. The experience was unmatched and priceless. Trust me, you won't regret."

"I rarely give out reviews or survey's after staying in VRBO's, but this property...WOW..! What a great house to spend the weekend with the family. The house is setup perfectly for a lot of people with open spaces huge rooms, every bedroom has its own bathroom. The fixtures, furniture and kitchen appliances are all top of the line. We had our family Christmas gathering and had 16 people with grandchildren and our kids enjoy every moment. Plenty of things to do, never left the house. Enjoyed the sport court, played basketball, pickle pall (for the first time) and kids road their bikes. Afternoons spent family time in the heated pool looking at high country vistas...what a view looking from the infinity pool. If you want 5-STAR quality resort property, this is the place to rent. Highly recommend the property and will definitely come back. Oh, the property manager and owner..."the best I have every dealt in renting properties"...you will not be disappointed."

"We got together for a family Thanksgiving. The home was magnificent! Has every amenity you would want or desire. The heated pool and outdoor fireplace was a plus for a big group. They even supplied pool towels and inflatables. There were two pickleball courts and a basketball court on the property. The kitchen was fully outfitted with every appliance you could need. The pantry was stocked with all sorts of supplies including paper products, dinner ware, glasses, serving pieces, cooking utensils, pots, pans. And there were a many sundries such as spices and coffee. You name it, this house has it. The bedrooms were comfortable and lush. They even had special soaps and body washes available in every bathroom. Keith was very communicative, and encouraged us to contact him if there was anything we needed. The home is private and secluded with beautiful views. I cannot say enough about this stay. It was incredible and well worth every penny spent in booking."

Everything from beds to appliances to furnishings was top of the line. Our stay was wonderful and everyone was comfortable. I contacted the host a couple of times with questions and he responded immediately and was very helpful. Superb hospitality. Thank you, Keith, for sharing your home with us. It was well worth the cost, no regrets."

"This home and property is absolutely beautiful! We stayed over the 4th of July weekend with our grown kids and 6 grandchildren ages 2-13. We enjoyed an amazing view of the trees and rolling hills of San Antonio, with a bonus of fireworks shows all across the horizon. Keith is friendly, responds promptly, and is very accommodating! He even purchased a high chair and pack-n-play, and made sure the safety fence on the pool was put up just for our visit! The pantry is stocked with more than the basics, and the cookware and utensils are top of the line quality. It was super convenient to have plenty of refrigerator space, plus two sets of large capacity washers and dryers. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and plenty of pillows. The quiet, secluded location is ideal with grocery and restaurants 5-10 miles away. I have nothing negative to say about this home - it was a perfect week of feeling spoiled while enjoying family time! We are so happy we chose this home and would definitely come back again!"

"This home is completely dedicated to making your every moment there absolutely flawless. We are group of professionals that came from Florida for an international vacation rental property managers conference (we also rent vacation homes!), and what we experienced was so inspiring! The truth is that Keith understands the real level of hospitality that is missing in this world today, and his home is an extension of that sentiment. If you have the honor of staying there at any time of the year, or any year to come, you will certainly experience a lesson in trust, humanity, and a gentle indulgence that reminds you that you will never be able to replace this personal touch that we all long for in these technologically frustrating days. Cheers to Keith! We will return! And we will tell everyone we know that they must stay only here with him!"

The pool was clean, there was pool toys for the kids and comfy lounge chairs for the adults. Kitchen is fantastic, note they have lots seasonings and condiments in the pantry. In their Chefs kitchen, you will lack for nothing. Keith, the host, is very easy to work with and very responsive. We will definitely stay at the house again in the future. Thank You"
