Welcome! We are very proud of our SuperHost status -- please check our reviews!
Clean, Quiet, Private, Safe, and Secure. Gated driveway away from the street. Comfortable and close to the Pearl.
Newly constructed studio apartment above a woodworking shop -- shop and studio built 8 years ago when the whole house was rehabbed. Comfortable queen size bed and queen size sofa bed with new springs and mattress. Walk to the Museum Reach of the RiverWalk; less than 2 miles to the Alamo. Max 4 adults

The space
Our garage woodworking shop was newly built in 2013 with an apartment above. There have never been any vehicles housed in the garage; it houses a hobbyist's woodworking shop. (Ask for a tour or to see the arts and crafts style furniture!)

Guest access
Guests have access to the front porch of the main house, and to the small, private table in the rear garden for morning coffee, newspaper reading, or a quite afternoon conversation. Either the front or back porches are excellent choices to enjoy the wine, coffee, and tea that awaits you upon your arrival.

Other things to note
We park our cars on the street to avoid the "honey will you move your car" discussions, which leaves the driveway open for your car. Please park in front of the gate knowing that your car is safely on private property and off the street. We ask you to park in front of the gate because the driveway is very, very narrow and it would be real easy to hit our house on one side, or the metal fence on the other side!

Location

San Antonio, Texas, United States

We live in the designated historic part of the Tobin Hill neighborhood, in an historic house (plaque and all!). Our house, like many others in the area, is over 100 years old, with 10 foot ceilings and 12 inch baseboards. While the historic designation prohibits exterior changes, we are allowed to modernize the interior with new bathrooms and a modern kitchen and utility area. The area is great, with interesting homes, wonderful neighbors, and very close proximity to downtown San Antonio and all major highways. We walk to the Pearl, restaurants, jazz clubs, a corner grocery, and to the Museum Reach of the Riverwalk.

Sort of retired to San Antonio after 20 years in Gov't in Washington, and another 20 years operating a graphic design business in Northern Virginia. Enjoy a glass of wine, woodworking, and the company of good friends. Love the Riverwalk in San Antonio. The best foods in San Antonio are excellent BBQ and fantastic Mexican. Love jazz and the blues, and reading thrillers and science fiction. I'm originally from Salem, Mass., then spent time in Conn. and the DC area.
