Old-fashioned double bed, TV with basic TV and DVD player. Private full bath. Sliding door closes off the area like a Suite.
Has Wi-Fi. There is no cat. Airbnb will not let me delete -- never been an inside cat. There is one neighbor cat that hangs around -- outsie only -- never comes in.
My neighborhood -- River Road Historic District --is quiet, green, tree-filled -- bordered by the San Antonio River and a City Golf Course -- yet it is super convenient to downtown and many SA attractions. My neighborhood is FANTASTIC for walks -- short or long.
Accès des voyageurs
Guest bedroom is at the front of cottage. Guest bath is on the hall and is used only by guests. The hallway is made private by a pocket door, making a little suite. Guests are welcome to sit and talk, read in the lovely living room/library. Guests may use the kitchen with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, tea kettle. Guests are welcome to sit ( including eating) on front deck ( screened-in) or back deck ( open ) -- have a glass of wine under the Italian pergola with its bubbling, lighted fountain. Note : I am a non-cook. I have a kitchen range, but I seldom use it, and it has no vent hood. So I prefer that guests not cook, beyond using the small microwave, the blender ( for smoothies) , the electric kettle for tea or the coffee maker. There are great places to eat within easy walking distance, not to mention the plethora of downtown restaurants.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I like to meet guests when first arrived and give super-brief orientation( 2-3 minutes) ; I enjoy taking guests on a drive around my special neighborhood
( 15 minutes ). I know a great deal about inner-city SA -- restaurants, bars, clubs for live music, tourist attractions, etc. -- happy to share info. I am absolutely content to leave guests on their own. A key is hidden for them and they may come and go at any time, including very late -- or very early.
My guest bed is termed "full" we used to say "double" -- it is not queen or king. Most guests find it very comfortable.
1. Absolutely NO SMOKING inside or out. 2. Respect driveway access of my "Back House" tenant -- a great, quiet older guy ( like me ! )
3. I ask guests not to eat in bedroom -- other than water, tea, coffee. I provide dining table and both front and back decks for eating.
4. I provide a small microwave. I have a gas range, but is has no hood -- so I don't encourage cooking on it. I am a non-cook. There is a coffee maker and an electric tea kettle. San Antonio has many fine restaurants, from inexpensive to fancy -- four are in easy walking distance from cottage. Most of my guests enjoy eating out. I ask for no extensive cooking in the kitchen.
5. No pets. My cottage is too small.
I am a long-time college English professor ; I'm currently teaching MWF through May 14.
I am very well-known and well-regarded in my small historic neighborhood. My first cousin, best buddy and close neighbor is one of the best Traditional Jazz musicians in the world ! I am quiet, love classical music, poetry, art. I am laid back, easy going. I'm an expert on much of SA, especially downtown. I have traveled a LOT around the world, especially Europe, and I have a LOT of experience e be a tourist in SA !
