Memorial Holiday is almost upon us. Here is to a wonderful 2017 in San Antonio!!
The Poppy is a fully-modernized, newly historically remodeled 2-bedroom one bath historic bungalow on your own private street in Beacon Hill. This is truly the gem in our collection. This spectacular location is right in the middle of it all!
Our goal is to provide many of the amenities of a resort hotel, while still offering a boutique experience that only a vacation rental can offer. Meet the Poppy.
This home is a fully-modernized and restored 2-bedroom, 1-bath historic bungalow. It features 800 square feet of open, airy space, 6-ft windows, and tons of historic charm. Everything has been renovated. Infact you may be the first guest! Brand new interior/exterior pain, brand new grout, furnishings and surveillance!
The bedroom is appointed with queen-sized beds, hotel-quality linens, and fluffy robes.
With high-ceilings and tons of natural light, the spacious, open-concept living area features an original built-in bar, dining area, an office area, and super-comfy chaise sofa bed.
New web-enabled, HD, LED TVs make it easy to catch your favorite team on ESPN, watch a movie with the kids, or just relax in your room watching your favorite show. HULU, NETFLIX...yup all there. All offered through our Amazon Fire and Sling Service.
The fully-appointed kitchen offers everything you need to cook a fabulous dinner at home, including a 4-burner, stainless steel gas range, and a quiet Bosch dishwasher. Or heck, just walk to Chris Madrid's, Pho sure, or any of the other amazing restaurants in your neighborhood.
Enjoy a morning cup of organic coffee -- a few complimentary cups to get you started during your stay -- or a nightcap relaxing on your private backyard patio, or on your open front patio.
Travel with lighter suitcases for longer stays by taking advantage of our full-sized, front-load washer/dryer.
We are pet and family-friendly with a private, fenced yard, gas BBQ grill, and outdoor seating.
The entire house is yours, and our location puts Downtown San Antonio, the Riverwalk, the Alamodome, and convention center all in a short drive.
For your first night, we feature hotel-quality toiletries, a little organic coffee, dish soap, laundry detergent, fluffy robes, toilet paper, paper towels, a water purifier pitcher, or snacks -- all designed to make your stay more comfortable.
Parking is off-street for two cars.
Rather than choosing to replace floors, siding, trim boards and windows, we work with the original materials as possible. Our city's historic preservation offices restrict replacement of many architecturally and culturally significant design elements in an effort to keep San Antonio's colorful past alive. So some portions of the house may lean, slide or tilt off angle…but these structures are sound and living legends from the past.
However we combine the latest in tankless efficient water systems, HVAC, and "green" measures of insulation, siding, paints, varnish, and wood materials. These are the same methods that helped us win 2015 City of San Antonio Green Builder of the Year.
We use multiple forms of security to alleviate any concerns you may have. The passcode are always changed and personalized to your reservation. Every window has a lock. We employ Arlo Pro cameras, the latest in surveillance cameras with infrared, night and day motion activity. We also use two way voice, which allows us to “communicate” with anyone who shouldn’t be there. Additionally, we provide Simplisafe monitoring, for indoor glass and unauthorized door opening.
These items will run quietly in the background of your stay and are monitored daily for your comfort.
You and your pets (up to two) are welcome to stay with us at $10/day. We are true animal lovers, and in addition to rescuing more than 6 dogs and cats since moving to San Antonio in 2013, we share our home with two rescue doggies -- a Korean Jindo and a standard Poodle. We are also the care-takers of 2 outdoor (formerly feral) kitties, and a few laying hens. Our pets are kept entirely separate from our rentals, but you are welcome to visit any of them if you like.
To account for cleaning, and any additional wear and tear on the furnishings and floors, we do charge a $10-night fee per night per pet.

Hi there! We love to laugh, enjoy good food and best of all...explore!
I'm an Air Force radiologist, and Kimberlee is a professional sommelier and now an amazing small business owner preserving historic homes in San Antonio! Our son Sebastian rounds out our small but wonderful family!
OUR PROFESSIONAL AND TIMELY RESPONSE, HIGH QUALITY HOMES, FURNISHINGS AND COMMITMENT TO LUXURY (ORGANIC COFFEE, TEA, FLUFFY ROBES, HIGH SPEED INTERNET, NO VOC PAINTS, AND GREEN BUILDING TECHNIQUES) ITEMS IN OUR HOMES SEPARATES US FROM OTHERS.
Our favorite part of hosting is meeting new people, sharing the incredibly diverse history of our neighborhood with them, and then hearing about their San Antonio adventures. Although we deeply respect our guests' privacy, we like to make ourselves available whenever any of them may need us. To that end we have round the clock guest services and a small staff of handymen, cleaning crew, and concierge services.
Living in the heart of San Antonio's hottest historic district, we are part of a lovely community committed to resurrecting the downtown, urban core. We are proud to have been named the 2015 Green Builder of the Year and carry this ethic into our collection of botique homes.
We love the people of Southtown, the walkability, the restaurants, the River, and all of the amazing places to explore around our neighborhood. Every year we work with the city donating our time, effort and resources to rebuilding homes probono. We have also contributed thousands of $$$ in profit to various local and national nonprofit organizations.
We look forward to having you stay with us!
