About this listing

Furnished room with A/C. Built in to garage for extra privacy from the rest of the house and reduced noise. There are no windows making it perfect for night shift or people who like to sleep in late. Washer and dryer access, plenty of room in the garage for storage! House amenities include kitchen, dining room, and living room. No furry pets. No 420.

The space

Room #4 of 4. This space is available short or long-term. This room is a fairly new addition added to the garage which is itself also in the process of being insulated. A/C and heat works great though so its very comfortable. Renters may use all the facilities in the common areas of the house. The room is designed for extra privacy away from the noise of the other people in the house. Room also has a keypad dead-bolt for increased peace of mind. The house is secured by ADT as well. Its furnished with a full size bed, dresser, a mini-fridge, TV, and either Xbox 360 or PS3. The house is fairly close to Lackland AFB, but not TOO close if you understand. There is LIMITED space for storage in the garage since most of it stores my commercial inventory.

The room is 10 x 10 and very cozy. There are no windows making it perfect for people on night shift.

DISCLAIMER: There is only 1 bed but its big enough for 2 people. There is an extra $15 charge for a third person. There is an air mattress that your third guest can use either in the room or the den. The couch in the living room or the love seat in the den are also available.

Guest access

Renters have access to all the common areas in the house and living room / den when those are not being rented. The bathroom is not private. It is shared with other guests and is in the house area. I have been more diligent about keeping it clean though since I started Air BnB, but always make sure to alert me to areas of concerns BEFORE you leave and I'll get on it.

Interaction with guests

I am now working nights but Carl is available when I am not around. The other renters are here infrequently. We don't like drama so leave that behind you here and chillax. Outstanding warrants, potential security concerns, or being on a sex offender list are grounds for refusal. I have to know about these things because the last long-term renter in that room didn't tell me about warrants and when we called 911 after we became concerned with his health they arrested him. No joke, just be honest up front! Guests will not be discriminated against based on religion or lack of it, race, gender, orientation, internet-sub-cultures, etc.

Other things to note

Bed is Queen size and can accommodate couples. There is a portable closet that can be moved outside the room if you need more space. If you have an extra guest a blow-up mattress or couch are available. Just let me know if you have questions!

IMPORTANT: No baby wipes in the toilet! Only us TP!

Air BnB's policy requires me to inform you that there is a security camera located outside the house pointed at the entrance and driveway area with a live feed to my phone for safety and accountability purposes.

Mike's place was awesome! I was in San Antonio for the summer for an internship abd his place was perfect for a college student. Affordable and awesome value. Will definitely be staying there if again when I visit San Antonio.

Good value on a private room. It was, as advertised, a private windowless room built into a garage bay attached to the house. You enter the house from your room by walkimg through the other garage bay which is used for storage. The room has a digital lock with your own code so you know your belongings are secure. When I stayed there the house had guests staying in the shared spaces, on the couch and air mattress, as well as in the rooms, so it was pretty crowded and no place to sit down other than the bed in my room. The host, Mike, was a great guy but not around much when I was staying there, so I mostly interacted with other guests while cooking etc. With all the rooms and couches booked there can be up to 6 guys staying in the house at one time, and only 1 bathroom, fyi. Mike has the largest video game collection I've ever seen, and you can play the games if you want, so if you're a gamer that's a bonus. House is adjacent to military base. Not much to do in the area, there's a few bars and little else, and you can feel the military culture in the area. Room was secure and very quiet, good value on a quiet private room.

Response from Mike:
Thanks Ben! Yeah, now that room 3 is available again I might be taking down the overflow listings until they are really needed. I'm going to get that corner area sorted out too. I'm not sure what happened to the chairs I had over there but I'll hunt them down.

The location was perfect as we needed a place near Lackland airbase. Very quiet.

Mike responded so quickly! Honestly, one of the best sleeps you'll ever get because the room is so secluded from the house itself. I definitely recommend this place if you're looking to rest!

Privacy was awesome! It was a bit dirty and the a/c did not really work in the private room. The host was easy to reach and check in was easy. This is a good place for the price if you're not picky and need a place to crash for a night.

Response from Mike:
Hey Oliva. I'm sorry if the room wasn't 100%. If you can send me a PM I will check out any specific problem areas next time I'm home. I personally checked the AC though and it was working fine. However, if you leave the door to the room open too long it CAN lose its cool fast. Closing the AC vents in the common areas of the house can also give a bit of boost to the AC to the garage room, but its all hooked up to the central air. Its always best to bring issues up during your stay so it can be addressed.

Stayed in the private room for longer than a month and it was everything I needed! The private room is located inside the garage of a house, which can only be accessed by walking through the main house. It is kept at a good cool temperature and of course has it's own door code so only you can enter it, without worrying about other guests. Aside from the large bed, the room comes with a dresser, a closet space to hang clothes if needed, a good size TV with an Xbox already connected, and mini fridge. The room was without a doubt just what I needed for the duration of my stay. The washer and dryer are immediately outside of the room, which was very convenient. Very good hosts who made themselves available for whatever need was asked. One example was I needed an iron for clothes and Mike purchased one that same day, which was flattering actually. The restroom is communal with the rest of the rooms, but nobody is in there long and the hosts do a good job of keeping the house clean. The room has no windows, which was perfect for days when I wanted to sleep in. I would stay here again f I needed a place to stay in SA for sure!

I'm a Computer Network Professional. I am also ex-Air Force so military and civilian government employees are especially welcome here! I work nights, so I will probably be asleep most of the day.

I used to travel a lot, but now I'm a bit tied down to the San Antonio area. There is a lot to do here anyway so its a fun place to live.

I believe people should be very respectful of each other here and people of any religious affiliation or lacking thereof are welcome to stay here judgement free. Please keep in mind, under local and state law, nobody can be discriminated against from renting out property based on religion, gender, sexuality or military service. This is America! All the huddled masses are welcome.

I am super allergic to cats and dogs though! That is why I don't allow them.
