Tiki Taco Casa - San Antonio Short Term Rental

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Criado Realty 0548772

Are you looking for a warm, comfortable, fun place to stay? Whether you need a place for your family to sleep when visiting San Antonio or you need a hub for family gatherings, you should book Tiki Taco Casa. 

This lovely 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home is my former residence. I just launched this business and have had my first guest. They were excellent guests who came to visit family who lived in the area. 

They wrote a fabulous 5 Star Review: 

It was so spacious for our family Thanksgiving gathering. Cathy was so thoughtful when preparing her home with the essentials. The neighborhood was quiet, peacful, and wonderful to walk around with the family for a stroll. The backyard is great for entertaining and just hanging out. Everything was clean and tidy. i love the uniqueness of this house. Thank you for having us stay while on vacation.

What makes this home so special is that I appointed it as if I live there. It isn't fancy. It isn't bran new furniture. It is well loved, cozy, comfortable furniture that is all leather or wood (except in the kids' retreat). I appointed it with island tropical because that is my style; San Antonio, TX - Honolulu, HI.

I can take direct bookings or you can go through AirBnB. 

It sleeps 8. Events require a direct booking and has additional rules and fees.

Here are a few photos of the home and information about the area. 

Here is the Primary bedroom. It is large and has a 65" Smart TV. 

The Secondary bedrooms are all 12x13, 12x14, or 14x16 and either have Queen Beds or a Triple Bunkbed. Although I am going to swap the triple to two twins for safety reasons, but still sleeps 8 since we took the trundle out of commission.

The decor throughout is island/tropical/TexMex, except this room; I went for a Laura Ashley grandma style quilt because it was just too pretty to pass up. Not shown, but across the bed, is the matching dresser making it easier to do make up and such.


This is the Kids' sleeping area. It has a twin over full. I am in the middle of swapping it to two wood 1960s wooden lattice twin beds.  They have Lilo & Stitch with pineapples comforters. The brick wall is super cute and makes it fun for teens too. I really do need to update the photos. I will after I change the beds this weekend.

Congratulations on this listing, here in LA the Airbnb laws got very restrictive around 2019.... hope that is not the case for you, Endre

Thank you. San Antonio is a tourist town so the city made smart decisions by creating an online registry system and limiting how many per block. I think its every 13th house.  Thanks Endre!

Thanks Brian! I hope so! I am looking into management firms who will do the marketing. Constant and wide spread social media advertising is so important.

Good morning Cathy. Sounds like a very plausible alternative to consider for those visiting San Antonio. Enjoy your day.

It is. Hotels suck for families, nowhere to run and play. If you have a dog, even worse.  Being close to a main artery in town and the airport, major universities and medical center make it a super option!

Hello Cathy - The care and attention which has been made at Tiki Taco Casa in San Antonio has a comfortable vibe in my opinion.  I can see its appeal.

Thanks Michael! If people want new and modern they can book a hotel. This is a place people can relax, nap on the overstuffe leather sofa, have a privat resort like pool, and the kids have their own space. :-)

Hi Cathy Criado. What a marvelous idea to turn your old residence into a short-term rental. There are many who would enjoy staying in a home like this instead of a hotel. It has so much to offer, and I am sure it feels like home to many. My sister does the same thing at her residence. Nice review from your tenants.
