Cassie e-mailed me before I arrived with information for checking in and the listing was very accurate in a quaint neighborhood close to all the main attractions. The driveway is extremely narrow so heed caution when bringing any large vehicles. The apartment felt nice and secluded and homey and Cassie was always quickly responsive if I needed anything!
I stay at Cassie's place on a regular basis and it is a nice and comfortable place. Location is great and the neighborhood is in the upscale area of San Antonio. Restaurants and access to and around San Antonio is as good as you can get. I recommend that you stay here and enjoy.
Listing is fairly accurate. Place was clean and she even offered snacks and chocolate which was a really nice treat to add to the whole experience =) Bed was nice and firm but not too firm - I'm 6'2" so I couldn't actually fit full length since it's just a double bed, so just keep that in mind if you're tall. Bathroom was nice and clean and shower was great. Little kitchenette with sink/oven was sufficient for us as well. I will say it's upstairs above a garage so just make sure you leave the AC unit running (even though Cassie asks you to turn it off, wink wink)... otherwise it gets pretty stuffy and takes 2 hours to finally get the place to a decent temperature (in June anyway). All in all, we're happy with our stay and would recommend this to anyone coming to the San Antonio area. Took us only about 13 min to get to some great mexican restaurants on the Riverwalk. Thanks Cassie!
Staying at Cassie's place was a wonderful experience. She had a personalized welcome sign and guess took waiting for us upon arrival. It was very romantic. There were also a variety of cold sodas, chocolates (which my husband absolutely enjoyed... immediately), and granola bars. These little touches were amazing, especially since we had traveled several hours and wanted to get settled in before exploring for food.
Our stay was very quiet, except for a thunderstorm that hit right after we arrived. Cassie texted us to make sure we were ok, told us who else we could contact if she was unavailable, and where any emergency items we may need were at. You would never get that in a comparatively priced hotel. I would recommend Cassie's place for any stay in the San Antonio area... even the neighborhood was beautiful. Felt more like the western Washington than Texas!
Loved Cassie's place, perfect location, clean sunny and so homey. Cassie even had a sign with my name on it that welcomed me to her home. I truly loved this place and her attention to detail was right on target.
Cassie made us feel very welcome, even came in greeted us for a quick hello when we arrived. There were instructions on the fridge and on the table along with our own key for our stay. The unit was vey cosy with stocked kitchen and great sleeping and living area. Felt just like being at home. Would stay again!
I'll just pile onto the other rave reviews. Cassie's apartment is a sweet oasis in a quiet back yard in lush Alamo Heights. She is an artist, and it shows--the room would show well in the pages of one of those decorating magazines about charming little houses. Place is kept spotless. And we felt well looked after: Kitchen and fridge are well-stocked with cold drinks and healthy snacks; in the bathroom, you'll find everything from hairspray to Tylenol. Very sad we had just one night to enjoy this beautiful refuge!
