Hey everyone! My dad told me recently that he's considering moving to San Antonio for the winter, to escape the great white North (he's from the Minneapolis area). I don't think he's ready to make a move here permanently, but he's definitely interested in staying down here Jan-March or so to escape the brutal winters.....

What kind of housing options can you guys think of? Are there any houses, apartments, condo's, etc. that you would recommend to the Snowbird types? Do any properties do leases as short as 3 or 4 months? We live in the Sea World area, if that helps.... Many thanks!

toll brothers makes some really fancy townhouses in the Helotes area. Apparently they are popular with the snowbirds with money crowd. They would be ideal for someone planning to live in them part-time since there is no yard to take care of. The toll brother's one also have incredible views overlooking a gold course.

You may want to look into corporate type housing. They normally are furnished and have towels, sheets, dishes, etc. Perfect for someone who is in transition and not sure of what they may want to do without the committment.

Id go with some of the little cabins most campgrounds now have, or a camper on site for rent -most allow for long term 6+ month rentals, generally quiet and cheaper.
