What's nearby:
Urban Villita is located only two miles away from the heart of the historic San Antonio and only one block away from the Alamodome, which hosts several different events throughout the year including NBA games, NFL games, college and high school football games, soccer matches, and music events. Try the famous Texan cuisine at any of the nearby restaurants within walking distance, or visit the Tower of the Americas, a 750-foot-tall tower offering the most spectacular view of the Alamo City and an on-site restaurant.

The house was clean and it was well stocked (towels, spices, cookware, plates, etc.) Everything we were looking for. Trains are close by, so expect some noise periodically.

Let me say that the property was comfortable, and in a good location. The air conditioner and all appliances worked well. However, there were multiple issues that made it a somewhat frustrating experience.
First, the initial communication we had was with the property manager day of, while still driving into town. They informed us, via text, that the property had ants, and could we please let the pest control guy in later in the afternoon after we got there (who ended up being slightly rude to my wife when asked to put a mask on).
Second, upon our arrival (@3:40 pm) I texted the manager to ask about access to the backdoor to make unloading the car easier. To which he informed us, that we couldn't use the backdoor, and that check in was at 4pm, and we could not access the property before then. If I was a few hours early I can appreciate that, but it was 20 minutes, and no one was there.
Next, the door on one of the showers fell off. Not a big deal, I was able to put it back in. Speaking of showers, the master shower had some fungus/gunk buildup on the floor, and apparently there was standing water inside the drain. And something basically made the shower absolutely reek of body odor/locker room. It should be noted that the property manager was reachable, came over to clean the funk buildup, and pour some drain-o, which helped somewhat (and deliver a anti-slip mat).
Additionally, there was very little on site in way of supplies (3 rolls of toilet paper, 1 trash bag [not extra, just 1 period], and only 2 packets of dish detergent). I understand that it is a vacation rental and not a hotel, but if you are staying for nearly a week with five guests, you expect a little more to be made available. This might be an unreasonable expectation, but it has been my experience at other VRBOs.
Finally, don’t expect to use the garage or back door that is seen in the photos. Buried with in the rental agreement it says that both are for owner use only. When I sent an email a couple of weeks prior to our arrival asking if it could be used, I received no response.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. To clarify, we provide our guests with a starter kit of supplies. This includes cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper products. Once these supplies run out it is the responsibility of our guests to provide any additional supplies throughout the remainder of their stay. Supplies are restocked before each guest. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused during your time with us. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

We are more than happy to find this house , excellent location and close to Alamodome where we attended an event.

The house is exactly as pictured and very clean. Everything has been tastefully remodeled and was perfect for our one week vacation. It is located in a quiet residential area that was very convenient to all the attractions. I was worried about the parking situation since our 2 families had 3 cars (husband of other family couldn't stay the whole week so he had to bring his own car) and the listing said 2 cars would fit in the driveway. We had 3 side by side and they fit perfectly. There is street parking also. The house itself was well-stocked with most kitchen items and we cooked a few meals. There was also a surprising amount of spices in the cabinet and laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher tablets, toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, shampoo, conditioner, and soap. There were plenty of towels and extra blankets. It was a very comfortable stay and perfect for 6 people with 3 queen beds.

GREAT PLACE !!
This house is located just east of the Alamo Dome, which makes everything close and easily accessible.
The house itself has an open flow concept from the kitchen through dining area and living room. This provided plenty of room for the joint families (3) to enjoy each others company without feeling crowded but the 3 bed rooms gave the seclusion needed by each family for the night. House is gorgeous with all the comfort anyone would need. The Restrooms are modern, extremely clean and spacious with AMAZING shower facilities in each. Property Manager friendly, accommodating and just a pleasure to deal with............
Ya just Gat ta give this place a try...........
