About the area

We are located at the end of a quiet street literally in the backyards of Fort Sam Houston's Historic officers homes. While just over a mile to the infamous Alamo, enjoy a walk around the block at see horses grazing in pasture on Fort Sam's park like grounds. We're in wonderful small neighborhood rich in history and interesting architecture of the early 20th century,We feel we have established an urban oasis in the city. This great central location just off Broadway 6 Blocks from the North End of the famed Riverwalk and Culinary hub at The Pearl. At around two miles north of the Alamo itself, we're adjacent to Fort Sam Houston, overlooking the stately historic officer quarters and San Antonio skyline. The location offers easy access to downtown, Fort Sam Houston, museums, The Zoo, Alamo Heights, great shopping and more. Easy highway access in any direction.

“Great get-away for the family”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2013

Our family (2 adults, 2kids) stayed for a long weekend at the Commandants Quarters. The home, backyard pool area was wonderful for relaxing on a hot Texas afternoon. Our hosts were gracious and always available for questions. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and would stay again without hesitation.

Owner's reply: Thank you Colin!

“Great quiet location”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2012

My husband and I loved the relaxation and fun at this unique home. Mr Knapp was very accommodating. Beds are good, location is very central and the spacious area fit everyone's needs.

“San Antonio experience”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2012

We stayed at the duplex for 4 weeks. It was a great experience. The home is charming and has everything you need to set up housekeeping. The location is ideal. Close to the Alamo, Riverwalk, Botanical Gardens, Missions, etc. The pool was lovely, but it was a little too cool for swimming. We enjoyed our first experience at snow-birding very much, thanks to such comfortable accommodations.

“Great for My Family's Needs”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2011

I needed a place for my parents and sister (and her family) to stay for the weekend. This place worked out beautifully. It was very spacious, and a lovely backyard area for the kids to play. The kitchen area was also very accomodating. One evening, we hosted a dinner for some our my extended family, and this worked out really well, with enough space to ensure that everyone felt at home. I'd definitely rent here again under similar circumstances.

“An Oasis”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2010

I loved The Commandant's Quarters! Brent is helpful, and the place is stylishly appointed. The beds are great, and the house is clean. I felt completely at home. If you are staying in San Antonio, this is close enough to downtown to be accessible, but out-of-the-way enough for quiet.

“Great Home”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2009

Greeted by the friendly owner upon arrival who had the home clean and a welcome basket (fruit/coffee). The home is nicely furnished and the 2 bathrooms are huge. Great location for both downtown and the surrounding area. Loved the pool. Will rent again if we travel to San Antonio in the future.

“Great Family Vacation Home”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2009

We cherish our family vacation every year and spent it this year in San Antonio and the Commandant's Quarters. We loved it! Our favorite things about The Commandant's Quarters: Tobie (the mom): The wonderful assortment of items that decorated the place; from vases to lamps to pictures. It was stylishly casual and oh-so-comfortable. I loved that it felt homey and yet so different from home, which is perfect for vacation! Bob (the dad): Big and comfortable; lots of room; we didn't have to be on top of each other all the time. Also loved the dimmer switches on all the lights; it's the little details that make a place unique and interesting. Kylee (age 7): The pool of course! Also the cable TV with My Life as a Teenage Robot and the games; the big chess set; pretty much everything! Parker (age 4): The pool and the cable TV where we watched El Tigre. Thanks for a lovely place to relax and enjoy our vacation!

“Inviting and Relaxing”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2008

My gal pals and I rented this duplex in celebration of one of my friends turning 50. Normally we stay at Bed and Breakfasts or 4 star hotels. We found the house to be charming and comfortable and quite possibly the best place we have ever stayed. The accomodations were great with a king size and a full bed and 2 bathrooms. Having the use of the pool and spa in the wonderfully landscaped backyard made us feel as though we were in a luxury resort. All this for the price of a hotel room for 4. There are plenty of towels and beach towels and most everything you could possibly need. The owners were gracious and most helpful. We had a wonderful stay and would consider renting this duplex in the future.

“A Very Comfortable Home”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2008

This was our first experience renting a house. Typically we would stay in a hotel close to the area we wanted to tour. However, we were pleasantly surprised how easy the owners made it. Everything from payment, maps, directions, and COMFORT! They describe the place as "somewhere off the beaten path" but it was far from that. We truly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the place to anyone looking to stay in San Antonio. Thanks again!
