If you’re looking for a small, historic getaway a bit outside of downtown San Antonio, then you need to see this Casita at Casa Lejana.

The property dates back all the way to the 1930’s. It has operated in the past as the Helotes city pool, a restaurant run by the Pace family (famous for Pace Picante sauce), and an old ranch house. But don’t let the age fool you – it has been fully renovated.

This small, secluded getaway is located on 2.5 acres, and features pool access. It is also located at the back of an old-fashioned Spanish-style courtyard. It’s small, making it the perfect getaway for two. And while it’s secluded, since it’s located in Helotes, you have access to the quaint old town, as well as tons of things to do very close up the road.

If you book ahead for December right now, the host is offering a discount on 2+ nights.

Amenities include:

  • pool
  • fridge
  • coffee bar
  • microwave
  • small workout facility

The Casita features a king-sized bed, small table and chairs, and kitchenette. To learn more, see the listing here.
