San Geronimo Creek in Helotes


Property Description

Here's the perfect family mountain view vacation rental that strikes a balance between city and country living without breaking your vacation budget! Geronimo Ridge in Helotes is loaded with pampering amenities, it's kid-friendly and pet-friendly, and it's located in a serene and beautiful country setting. You'll have peace and quiet here, but you won't have to worry about feeling too isolated-downtown San Antonio is just half an hour away, and several of its surrounding towns are even closer!

Looking for the perfect vacation rental for your next escape? You'll be hard-pressed to find a prettier or more welcoming locale. The Hill Country's mountain views surround Geronimo Ridge and its 7 acres, making it a great place to hike, watch wildlife, or simply take time away from the daily grind. It's an awesome central location for a tour of the scenic countryside, and the shopping, cuisine, and special events of metro San Antonio, without having to locate yourself in the middle of a big city.

A roomy back porch with outdoor seating, shaded patios, and seating areas surround the house, with plenty of furniture (including porch swings) where everyone can relax. The gated property is nice and quiet, and there's ample covered parking for your vehicles. The fire pit is a great location to reminisce and chat under starry night skies, and a gas grill is on hand for some great old-fashioned Texas BBQ. Smoking is allowed on the property, so long as you keep it outdoors.

Inside, it's bright, cheerful, and classy, with an open floor plan that includes the living and dining areas, with bar and table seating for meals and conversation. The fireplace in the living area adds warm ambiance, and the kitchen is generously equipped with modern appliances, cookware, utensils, and glasses-including regular and Krups coffee makers. The house has three bedrooms, with king and queen-sized beds that comfortably sleep up to six. Both full bathrooms have showers, with a shower/tub combo in the second bath. Bed and bath linens are included, and there's a washer and dryer on-site. The house is climate-controlled with central air, heat, and ceiling fans, and there are two TVs with DirecTV service. Wifi Internet is also available.

Nestled alongside the Guadalupe River halfway between Kerrville and Hunt lies the town of Ingram. This community of about 1,800 people is almost a combo of several towns in its vicinity, in that it’s taken advantage of local resources and has capitalized on them to make it a prime example of a Hill Country town. You’ll find farming and ranching in Ingram, wineries that take advantage of the unique local terroir, attractions linked to recreation on the river, and even a model of Stonehenge!

Just east of Hunt in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, you’ll find a marker erected in 2005 that discusses the history of the town and its vicinity. Hunt itself is located 13 miles west of Kerrville, at the junction of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe River. As the historical marker states, the town of Hunt is the ultimate result of three different communities that were founded in more or less the same place!

The Hill Country town of Kendalia is near the Guadalupe River, about halfway between Blanco and Boerne as the crow flies. It’s one of the smaller towns in the region; its population has hovered around 100 the past several decades, and when you count the ranchers and rural dwellers in its ZIP code that number increases to about 350. Nonetheless, Kendalia has a fascinating history all its own.

We reserved this house so that we could spend the New Year's holiday with my parents, and it was everything we could wish for and more! All of the amenities were beautifully appointed, and we had everything we could need from the coffee maker to the grill to the extra blankets and pillows. Every room was very comfortable and like new. It was the perfect balance of a getaway because it was only 30 mins away from the city but felt like we had so much space to ourselves. We look forward to staying here again in the near future! Thank you so much for the memories and a special time!.

My husband and I stayed for a week (to escape the city and the 4 walls of our house) and loved our stay. The house is just as described, if not better than described. The WiFi worked well for all our calls/zoom meetings. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cookware/dinnerware you could need - there is even a gas stove for those who love to cook. We ended up cooking outside mostly because the weather was beautiful and we loved the back patio and the sunsets. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. Bring your own shampoo/soap and hairdryer. The 7 acres is fully fenced (for medium/large size dogs) - I walked the perimeter and felt safe that my dog could not easily escape. But wildlife still got in. We saw jackrabbits and deer on/near the property. The property is 20 minutes to the San Antonio HEB or 25 minutes to the Boerne HEB so groceries are close. We made the trip to Boerne several times. It is a nice pretty drive and doesn't feel like a trek. The area around the house is beautiful too. We LOVED our stay and will be back. The house is cleaned out each time folks leave, so bring your own spices, condiments, coffee, paper towels/extra TP, etc. The management company and host were super responsive to our questions. Would recommend them too.

My wife and I stayed the weekend at Geronimo Creek. The house is very nicely done with a large great room featuring a modern, well-stocked, chef\'s kitchen, and a large space for tv watching or relaxing featuring a couch and comfortable chair and ottomans. There are two spacious bedrooms which share a hall bath and then a large master with ensuite bathroom. The house has a nice covered porch and landscaped sitting area with a fire pit. There is a gas grill on the porch on which we cooked burgers and steaks. The highlight of the property is the large fenced yard (several acres) with huge 200+-year-old oaks on it We enjoyed the quiet of it and the stars at night which are countless. The house is about 30 minutes from Bandera or Boerne, minutes from Helotes, and just outside of San Antonio. The property management company was attentive and made sure we arrived okay and that everything was as expected. Overall, the home is equipped to entertain and would be a perfect place to escape the noise of the city or have a family get together during the pandemic.
