We rented this for a quick family getaway. The location is nice and private. The house fit 2 adults and three children perfectly. We enjoyed looking at the stars at night. You can’t beat this view. We loved having coffee while watching the sunrise. The inside is so comfortable and has all you need. Nice TVs, comfy couches and recliner. Very comfortable and clean beds. If you are staying in the Castroville area and want a private comfortable clean place to stay...this is the one! Also check out Cora’s, it’s right up the road not even a mile or so. Best nachos and beer. Can’t wait to stay here again.
Overall, everything is great.
Thank you! This was a perfect place for the wedding we attended! Thank you for being so accommodating!
Great location if you enjoy the country and I do.
Perfect setting for the outdoor family we had an awesome time with the family here everything was great and clean secluded from the big city but close to it will definitely come back thank you sir John and wife
We stayed with our family and had a great time! The house is perfect for a group with plenty of space to run around outside. We stayed with our family and my sisters family. We each have kids and the kids really enjoyed the property as well. This is a great getaway location.
Again, we really enjoyed our stay at Del Mar Farms!! Great location and peaceful surroundings. Will stay again!!
This cabin has a great floor plan and everything you need, including a hair dryer. The master bed was extremely comfortable. The dishwasher was not working during our stay so we had to wash the old fashioned way. Luckily, we enjoyed the view of the cows from the kitchen window! If you arrive in the evening, bring a flashlight because there is no outdoor lighting. We had to call the owner a few times about a minor issue and he was extremely responsive. We will stay here again.
Really enjoyed our stay. Will return ASAP. Thanks
Good quiet home with access to several nearby restaurants
Very comfortable and quiet place to stay and explore. We have rented this house multiple times, really enjoy it.
Great place, we loved it
We had the best time at this beautiful listing! We wanted to get away for weekend while still social distancing from large groups, this was the perfect spot! My mother has dementia and it is difficult to get her out during this time and what a beautiful trip! Each morning we woke up to enjoy the beautiful sunrise with a cup of coffee (Don't worry if you forget to bring the coffee they graciously have some available and it was my favorite kind!) My son and I explored the farm and walked around talking and enjoying each others company as we searched for cows, we had a blast! Saturday morning we made the short drive to the community park to ride bikes and even made it to the free swim, we were the only one's at the pool! Evening included eating as a family on the front porch while laughing and making memories! Sunday morning I took a 20 mile bike ride along the HWY next to DeL Mar Farms and it was gorgeous! This was the most perfect weekend and I'm so glad we decided to book this gem! We will definitely book this location again, as my children were already making plans to stay there for the fall! The host was great, and answered all my questions through text! Book this listing now, you won't regret it!
Lovely house on secluded property.
Lovely farmhouse setting with cows grazing on other side of fence. Very quiet and serene, close to town and close to all that San Antonio has to offer, as well as other Hill Country locations. I reported two of the electric recliners not working, and I'm sure owner will address, as he was very communicative. Note there is no internet or wifi here. Very relaxing stay.
Spacious and pretty. Perfect getaway for our family. Thank you!!
Wonderful property, clean and well cared for. Kids enjoyed the animals on the ranch, great hiking on property and local in Castroville! Will be returning soon!
We enjoyed the Del Mar Ranch home with family and friends! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in the San Antonio/Hill Country area!
Again, enjoyed our stay at DelMar Farms. Good location and quite area! We are returning guests and will stay again in the future.
It is a great are close to Bandera or San Antonio. Beautiful ranch with clear nights and all around great place to get away.
Beautiful house. Very peaceful.
Fantastic just like the last time we stayed at Del Mar Farms. Easy booking . John is very responsive and informative about the property especially regarding the cattle, gates, etc. Beds are super comfortable.
It was so nice to be away from suburbia for a few days and enjoy the solitude of this pleasant little ranch house. It had enough room for the six of us and we enjoyed grilling outside and walking around the property. The drive to San Antonio is quick as well.
We were very pleased with this property and how attentive the owner was. We will be staying again.
This is a wonderful property with fantastic management. Very enjoyable experience.
We really enjoyed our stay at Del Mar Farms! It truly is a great location; close enough to the attractions in San Antonio, but also among the quieter beauty of the Texas Hill Country. John was very responsive and helpful, and the other workers who were occasionally around were friendly and respectful as well. And the kitchen was one of the better ones I've experienced, with plenty of dishes, utensils, pots, pans, spices, condiments, and a few basic pantry items. Would definitely recommend!
Loved our stay. Quite country property. Owner was very attentive and excellent communication. We were very pleased with the home, very comfortable. The instructions to the property were simple. Would definitely stay again :)
I picked out the home for my family's week stay and they were all impressed at how beautiful and cozy the home felt. John was very communicative and good host.
Very nice location. Wish they had WiFi but the quiet was awesome. Very close to town.
The house was excellent , we really loved the security of the gate as well as the rural setting. Everything was sparkling clean , the beds were A+ . Awesome experience would highly recommend and will use again. Zero negatives.
The location of the house was perfect. Close to Castroville, but it feels like you’re out in the country. The house was exactly what was represented on the website and just what we were looking for. We’ll be back
Secluded and quiet. A few things in home did need minor attention but I did let owner know. Will stay again.
We enjoyed our stay at this quaint home. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked with utensils. Walmart is a few minutes drive for groceries. The kids loved the loft and spent a lot of time out in the front and back yards, too. The drive to SeaWorld, zoo, downtown was not bad at all. The home was a perfect retreat after spending all day in town.
Very nice house! Clean and comfy. The only thing we ran into was a lack of blankets. There were 7 of us and a couple of the ladies were cold natured needing to bundle up with the AC on. Would highly recommend to others.
Totally enjoyed this house - great yard for the grandkids to play and so peaceful and quiet - also was amazed at the local bar and grill right down the street had dinner there -they had live music and great food .
Thank you very much, we had a lovely stay in your house (love the positive messages everywhere ), perfect inside and the kids enjoyed the animals outside!! We’ll definitely recommend and come back !
great place so glad we chose this one. great location and beautiful house great security and privacy
We cannot love this place enough! It was the perfect place to relax after exploring San Antonio and the surrounding areas! Thank you guys so much for a clean, relaxing place to get away! We will be back!
Had a great time here. We went to Strawberry Fest the drive out there was short. Thank you so much John the place was nice and quiet.
We had an incredibly enjoyable stay. At night we opened the windows and felt the clean country air while listening to the yipping of the coyotes. The house was clean and comfortable. John Garza was a friendly and very accommodating host.
Beautiful and CLEAN spacious rental! I would recommend for anyone who visits the area!
Our girls loved the loft with separate beds so they didn’t have to share. Provides everything you need. Beds were so comfy. Great location close to everything but far away you can relax and have some quiet time too. Will be back!
House was beautiful, very clean and comfortable.
The stay at this ranch home was great! The home is exactly the same as the pictures. We were greeted by a herd of cows as soon as we got there. The kids loved it! It was not too far from Seaworld. We stayed the weekend before Thanksgiving. The weather got chilly, but were able to keep warm inside the home. The only issue we had was running out of hot water twice. So I wouldn't recommend more than 3 or 4 people showering back to back. Also the water drains slowly in showers. Other than that everything was great. We would definitely stay again!
Everything we expected. Quite and clean.
This was the perfect setting for our family gathering. Your home was so relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed the Castroville community, as it brought back so many childhood memories and special moments. We would definitely return for another visit. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Fun experience, would definitely go back
This house is everything the description says and more. We could not have had a better experience. We stayed for our daughters BMT graduation. This house was a quiet secluded retreat from the long days activities. It was only 20 minutes away from the base and so conveniently located. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. We have talked about coming back to San Antonio just to stay here again! The house has anything you could need and wal mart is about 3 miles away. It was so convenient to be able to wash clothes and cook meals without having to go anywhere but if you want to the riverwalk and Alamo are a quick 30 minutes away. This house allowed our family to stay together for the cost of one hotel room instead of the 2 rooms we would have had to get AND we stayed in a much nicer atmosphere than we would have had in a hotel room. If you are looking to book a place to stay during BMT weekend rest assured this is the place!
Here for dove hunting. Really enjoyed the quiet stay and exceptional atmosphere. Great place to stay.
We enjoyed this home. Great space, well maintained, really comfortable beds. Towels were awesome! Loved the cows and the mule, they come right up to your car. Although the owner will keep them in a separate paddock if that isn't your thing. I loved it. Not far from Lackland AFB. I believe it was 23 minutes away. Great place to eat just minutes away (go right out of the long diveway). You can actually see the place from the house. Walmart within 5 minutes so easy to get supplies needed. We would stay there again.
This home was just like a storybook cottage! The house was spotless, the beds were unbelievably comfortable, and the overall atmosphere was beautiful. We were able to get away from the world and actually spend time together, laughing and talking. The cows were great, but the mule/donkey was the best...my kids keep asking if we can have one. I wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will return.
The house was charming. It was quiet and a great way to get connected with ranch life. The house had everything your family needs. Comfortable beds and open concept. I highly recommend this house. You will be pleased.
We loved every minute of our stay. The house has a wonderful layout and is beautifully designed and decorated. The house was very clean and is well taken care of. It’s far enough away from the road so you get a nice quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Can’t wait for our next visit.
We stayed for our sons BMT. The house is clean and has everything you will need. John is prompt with any questions you may have. Look no more this is where you should stay.
I don’t write reviews usually but I feel compelled to do so here. Vacationing at the farmhouse gave my family an experience that a hotel would have lacked. First of all the farmhouse is beautiful and as nice and clean as any of the nicest hotels. My kids had experiences of hearing the cows and roosters in the morning. We took a walk on their property and ventured out and heard a deer or a fox quickly run by. The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful so much so that one morning I was awoken by a blazing orange sun peaking into a midnight blue sky. The next morning my children and I rose early to see the sunrise and sat their for nearly an hour just enjoying how pretty it was. Their is a family of hummingbirds that love the orange flowers on the front porch. We thought it was only one but later on the morning of the sunrise we saw that it was 4. I have never seen that many hummingbirds in my life. Truly special! So you see this place is blessed. It was amazing. I only wish I could upload some photos. It was a blessing and refreshing to stay here. Thank you Mr and Mrs Garza for the care that you took in preparing the home.
Our family loved our stay. The property was beautiful and clean. We loved the fact we were only 20-25 minutes from all the activities in San Antonio our family enjoys. We look forward to staying here again on return trips to the area. The owners were quick to respond to any emails sent. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
This house was absolutely amazing. It has the perfect mix of country and city. The house is tucked away giving you lots of alone time but close enough to the city so you can be busy during your entire trip. I would definitely book this house again, and I already recommended it to all of my friends.
The BEST vacation home we have stayed at by far. Loved the bed so much so that we looked at it and going to buy one!
Beautiful home(updated), very clean and well taken care of. Nice secluded area, very quiet and peaceful! Only 5-10 minutes from Walmart and nearest gas stations. Would stay there again, and recommend it to anyone.
My wife and I cannot say enough about our stay. We were in for your daughters graduation at Lackland Air Force Base on May 29- June 3. We heard a lot of stories from different people about all the crime around the hotels surrounding Lakeland. So we decided to look into a rental vacation home. So glad we found this home. It’s a short 15 minute drive to Lackland Air Force Base. Walmart, gas stations and restaurants are all within five minutes of this home. House is very secluded. On the way to get to the house is through a cattle gate which is located at the end of the driveway. The gate is locked at all times by combination lock. There’s no other way to the house but through that gate. Gives you an extra sense of security. My son had fun opening and closing the gate for us. It made him feel like he was a ranchhand. The house is completely fenced in. The yard is very well-maintained. Gorgeous shrubbery all around the house is home to several local butterflies and birds. The home is fairly new and very clean. There’s a master suite downstairs and two extra beds upstairs in the loft. Also there’s a bathroom and shower upstairs. And a very large master bath and shower downstairs. Home has a washer and dryer which is very convenient. We only had to pack three days worth of clothes for seven day trip. We just washed as we needed. The beds in this home are so comfortable my wife and I slept better than we do at our own home. Everything is top notch in the home. The bedsheets, the bed cover, the pillows and pillowcases, are all high quality and very clean. You will not find a nicer place to stay for the price you have to pay for this home. We were absolutely thrilled once we walked in. Our airman loved the home. All she wanted to do was stay there and sleep and eat and hang out on the back porch. This was the most relaxing vacation my wife and I and our son have ever had and it was all due to the ambience of this home. As for the owner John, what a wonderful person to deal with. He was very prompt in responses to any questions we had. He never came out to check on the property one time. He left us alone to do our thing and trusted us to leave the home as we found it. If you’re looking to stay in the San Antonio area for any type of vacation especially a BMT graduation at Lackland, please please please do not overlook this home. My son will be joining the Air Force in two years. And there is no question as to where will be staying.
Very clean, beautiful country house. Great privacy and lots of fun hiking around the acreage. Love listening to the birds instead of I-10 traffic - ever so peaceful.
This place is great! Clean, nice, and oh so peaceful! Big TVs, comfy beds, upscale decor. Owner (John and family) were very responsive to questions we had before arriving. Would definitely recommend this place and if we return to San Antonio, we will be checking availability of this house!
We absolutely LOVED our stay here, we came up here to celebrate my nieces 7th birthday and after two loonnng days it was so nice to come to such a beautiful place and RELAX. Would defiantly recommend and would love to come back given the chance to. Our favorite part had to be the cows moo'ing at us in the mornings, haha. Such great owner communication as well !
Loved the stay was cozy and quiet. Very accommodating. Will recommend to family and friends! Lots of privacy the house is beautiful! Beds are comfortable loved the kitchen.
We absolutely loved our stay at John’s beautiful farm house! He was very kind and quick to respond to any questions we had. It’s far way from the hussle and bussle but convieniently close to few restaurants and Walmart. We drove just a few miles to a Trial Park which was very enjoyable. We picked up few groceries to make breakfast and their fully stocked kitchen had everything we needed. Kids loved the stair way and having a bathroom upstairs as well was a plus! Couches recline to an almost laying position which was great to enjoy movies on their huge TV. All the beds are so comfortable and they even have an extra queen size air mattress which I didn’t expect to use but our little one wanted to sleep on it instead of on the bed with his older brother, which worked out perfect so we didn’t have to worry about him falling out of the bed. :) We explored a little around the farm and got lucky to see numerous of the cows grazing just by the fence line. We had an amazing time! Definitely would recommend this beautiful farm house and if we ever need to come back to San Antonio this home will be on our top list to book! Thank you again John!
Stay here! Don’t hesitate to book this charming property. Peaceful serene grounds. Charming house with beautiful landscaping. True Texas experience!! Out in the middle of gorgeous pastures but just a few minutes drive to restaurants, gas stations and Walmart. The drive into San Antonio is easy and quick. You will regret not choosing this place!! Stayed here with my teenage daughter and her friend- and they loved it!! John is courteous and easy to deal with! Perfect vacation trip!!
This place was amazing! This place offers a very quiet get away after spending the day in the city. It is only minutes away from anything you need (Walmart, gas stations, food and etc.) and less than 30 minutes away from Sea World and anything else you want to do in the city. John and his wife are extremely easy to work with and very quick to respond with any needs you may have.
This was such a lovely home for our stay. Comfortable, quiet, and so serene. I wish I could’ve stayed for a week. We had a lovely time and would definitely stay again!
Our family loved the place. It is definitely a getaway place. Nothing but nature itself, and peacefulness. Will most likely make this an annual trip with the family!! Thank you Mr and Mrs Garza for making everything so enjoyable and easy!!
We really enjoyed staying at this farm. It was beautiful and very peaceful will definitely be returning soon.
We all loved the place! Beautiful home inside and out! Peaceful, quiet, and conveniently located near walmart, restaurants, and not far from Sea world. Wish we could of stayed longer. I will definetly consider booking again.
Great quiet home, but not to far away from sea world. Nice and peaceful just exactly what I needed for vacation.
We were looking for a quiet stay away from the city and we found this place. It’s a home away from home. Just the right size for a family of 6-4 people. The 2 bathrooms were showers only, which were fine with us but if you’re looking for bath tubs or jacuzzi this is not a place for you. The beds are very comfortable but the pillows aren’t so you might want to bring your own. We highly recommend this place for some peace and quiet.
I don’t think the pictures do justice on this rental. My family enjoyed staying here and will come back. This is a new rental with new appliances fresh and clean. We rented to visit Lackland training base and plan to be back for graduation. Of course this is a farm so children will want to venture out as it is fenced with open areas. Plenty of windows to view all around the property. Thank you for allowing us to stay at this property I bet when spring comes around the colors and greenery will be even better. Great place.
