“Perfect Location for a Girls Weekend.”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This location was perfect for our Girls Weekend Away. There were 4 of us and we had the top floor suite one night and the two 2nd floor rooms that were joined by the veranda. I can't really say which was better...they were both awesome. The hospitality was superb and the location was perfect. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't get back in until time to leave. We walked to many terrific restaurants, shopping districts and the famous river walk. We did antique shopping, listened to outdoor musicians and sampled many margaritas with the perfect home base. Sitting out on the big front porch and on the veranda was the most relaxing of the trip. You just don't get that feeling in a Hotel.

Room Tip: From what I could tell they are all unique in their own way.

Thank you so much for such a great review. You really recognized what San Antonio is all about, especially the Southown/King William District area. We believe no matter the reason you visit you deserve to feel at home.

Whenever you, and your girls return, our porch swing, veranda and the local margaritas will be here to welcome you.

Thanks again!

We spent the last week in San Antonio on spring break. I did a fair amount of research on tripadvisor looking for the best place to stay and settled on Eva's based on a combination of the fact that I generally prefer B&B's, price, location, and the specific room we picked was a suite which gave our daughter her own bed in one room while we were able to sleep in another. I have pretty high expectations for B&Bs and I was very happy with my choice.

The Desert Blossom Suite was a wonderful choice for us and was both very spacious and well appointed. I liked everything about the room. Breakfast was delightful and our hosts were some of the kindest and most enthusiastic of any that I've ever visited. I would heartily endorse staying here for anyone who is in town for vacation.

Room Tip: Note that the Desert Blossom Suite occupies the entire 3rd floor and is up a fairly long set of stai...

Cliff- Thank you for your kind words and recommendations! We loved opening our doors to you and your family, and we thank you for choosing us. Even though the college you toured was of no interest, there are many more in the area. It was a pleasure having you as our guests and we hope to see you again.

My husband and I checked into Eva's along with two other couples for a couples getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality, attention to detail with amenities and the truly authentic and home away from home feel.

Did I mention that it was superbly romantic!!??

This was a target event. We had a wedding planed at the establishment. Tons of things went wrong. The pictures was very deceiving. Every time my wife thinks about our wedding she breaks down into tears. We got charged for items that was not even their. This place will ruin your wedding. As it did ours. I am not sure if they changed management. Even the staff was rude using profanity and smoking in front of childeren. Slamming down plates to our guess. The room had left over food from the previous guesses. We have even connected the owner of the house. I would highly reconsider staying or having a wedding here.

A very nice, cozy, well run establishment. In the heart of downtown San Antonio with easy walking access to main downtown attractions. A safe, family-friendly area of town.

Be certain to ask Deborah the stories behind each breakfast she serves.

This B&B is what I believe to be a rare find. A beautifully restored and appointed antique home. The host and staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was comprised of original recipes that could only be described as gourmet. We have stayed in many hotels but none have had an experience and ambiance that have left us with wonderful memories such as this. Our expectations were exceeded.
The location lends itself easily to accessing the many attractions that San Antonio has to offer. My wife and I parked the car when we arrived and didn't use it again till we left. The City is exceptionally pedestrian and bicycle friendly. We spent two days walking adventurously from the house to the River Walk, the Alamo and even Market Square. Several exceptional restaurants are also within close walking distance. A self made tour of antique homes can easily start from the front door. We enjoyed being able to relax on the veranda after our refreshing walks.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Magnolia room on the second floor that has a semi-private veranda with a southern v...

We had a great stay at Eva's Escape! Our Magnolia room was perfect, and the home was beautiful and well appointed. The breakfast was amazing and the afternoon wine and cupcakes was a great time to meet other guests. The location was convenient to a few bars and restaurants (walking distance), and other activities within walking distance. We will definitely be back again!
