Interaction with guests
I'm often out of town, since my daughter is still a kid and she lives in LA (she's on the television show 'This Is Us') so I'm playing mom a lot there. When I am in town, I'm happy to meet you, follow up, and provide information as needed. Whether I'm there or not, though, we have great neighbors and also a good housekeeper who can help you in any way you might need.

This property in a gentrifying neighborhood does give easy access to the Riverwalk, La Villita, and other downtown locations. The #42 bus, which runs nearby, goes out to the missions, and another whose number I don’t remember provides connection to other areas in the metro...More

About the neighbourhood
In the heart of the city of San Antonio, beautifully located in an historic district with neighborly neighbors! Plenty of activities for families or couples. Stroll the famous River Walk, walk to the Alamo, or take a trolley to numerous downtown locations.
Getting around
This area is very walkable, but also well-served by bus, trolley, Uber and Lyft. You can drive easily in and out, but parking anywhere can be a hassle downtown, so it's easier to just park the car at the house and take a ride share service.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: San Antonio Airport: 24.0 km
