Julie was a great, considerate, and attentive hostess. From the moment we arrived, she showed us the place, answered questions about the local area, and seemed very genuine in her desire to make our stay welcome. The place is nicely located, clean, and charming.
Staying at Julie's was a great experience. It took a bit of coordination to get the keys, but once inside everything was as described and very enjoyable, from essentials (impeccable cleanliness) to nice little surprises (pebbles in the shower floor!). The bed was very comfortable and the neighborhood is very calm, so no sleep disruptions during the night despite the fact that the bedroom windows are not soundproof . The neighborhood seemed much more original than downtown SA, with many cool places to have food or drinks nearby. Overall, I would recommend staying at Julie's without hesitation.
The King Williams District is a nice alternative and still close to the Riverwalk. Everything in the apartment worked and except for a brief time it had great WiFi. Good water pressure in the shower and nice appliances, good TV with all the channels. Pretty spacious.
There was one major issue that might not be an issue for someone else. The bedroom is at the front, right on South Alamo. You hear every traffic noise and all the noise from the many restaurants and bars especially with the music they play streetside and the outdoor patio seating at one of them. I live in a very quiet area so this may not be an issue for everyone.
Another issue is that the furniture needs a serious cleaning as well as the bedroom windows.
If these are minor in your mind then it is a good place to stay.
Our stay in San Antonio was excellent and a major part of that was due to such great hospitality on Julie's part. Julie is a very flexible, responsible and friendly host. Her apartment was clean, equipped and absolutely ready for our stay. Our 5 day stay was comfortable, care-free and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you Julie!
Julie is a great Host, The appartment is very comfortable, situated in an excellent neighborhood, with many restaurants and beber gardens around. We felt totally ay home. Downtown San Antonio is an excellent spot for tourists, as you can walk easily into rivercenter and álamo.
About the Host, Julie
I am from San Antonio, Texas and love to show off my beautiful city! My husband John and I do a lot of traveling and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. We are hoping this gives us the opportunity to meet more people from the U.S. and other countries. We are very knowledgeable of the area and will be excellent sources of information on local sights, happenings and entertainment.
