    Yes

Pets allowed if cleaned up after. I have a 3000' workshop here, when I'm around the workshop and my services can be utilized, I have both 30 Amp and 50 Amp connection. 20 security cameras monitoring the property as well as two alarm companies monitoring the Workshop. 1/2 acre lot. If hooked up to electric please make a $10 contribution to cover costs, if we aren't here just drop it in the mailbox. Water and sewer no charge. If longer stays are needed for repairs or some other reason we can talk about it. Suggested Local Attractions: The Longhorn Museum about 1/4 mile from our site is interesting and free. But not a lot to see in Pleasanton, TX actually, but if needing a place to visit relatives or some of the festivals in the area, like the Poteet Strawberry Festival, or the Pleasanton, Turn N Burn State Championship BBQ Cook-Off. Or even just a night or two rest in route to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico or a trip into Mexico. And a place to possibly work on your RV. Many guests stay a few days and make day trips to San Antonio. Many great things to see and do in the San Antonio area. Pleasanton also has a full size H.E.B. grocery and a Super Walmart, and a few places to fill Propane. Highlights for SAT are Riverwalk, Old Pearl Brewery (since 2001 converted into a culinary and cultural destination), Missions National Historical Park (best seen via the paved bicycle path between all 5 missions one of which is of course THE ALAMO). Another favorite of ours is the McNay Art Museum. Also if kiddos are going to be tagging along the Duseum is great. Oh and I can recommend a meal from the Tower of America's revolving restaurant mostly for the view. The last time we were there in 2022 June the food was even quite good. Or even better the historic Grist Mill in New Braunfels. Here are a couple of videos that show more things to do in SA: 50 things to See and Do in San Antonio https://youtu.be/83dOAaXdAro and: Top Things to Do in San Antonio (Hidden Gems) https://youtu.be/1gkUdsacJ3U And for those with a hiking inclination some of our favorites are Gov't Canyon Park (real dinosaur footprints in the river, and they allow mountain bikes), Enchanted Rock Area. And if you want to do a little backpacking for a night or two Lost Maples Park (that's a bit further but they also have a campground with RV hookups) and is especially beautiful with Spring wildflowers and Fall leaf color change. Also since I get asked a lot, you can walk your pets in the neighborhood but don't leave them out all night as many cats, dogs, fox, coyote, and deer frequent the property. Also the Pleasanton City park is a great place to even let pets off the leash as long as they aren't the type that will attack the ducks and geese. If you are heading West from our place you may want to make a plan to go by Camp Verde General Store and Restaurant on your way, and that could be part of a trip to Lost Maples Park. Great food, a nice place to take a little walk by the river, and a scenic drive. http://campverdegeneralstore.com/main/restaurant.php open I think every day from 08:00 to 17:00 is best to make a reservation. Many things in the old general store too. We probably go once a month when we're in Texas. All the best, Gerald, AiXia, & Gaston

House Rules

Pets must be cleaned up after, and not be loud! Clean up after yourself, and please report and pay for any damages you may cause. Also, report anything not working as I may not be here when you are, and I want everything working. Have fun and be helpful to anyone else staying on the property. Additionally, if you have, or know of any theft or experience any other difficulty, report it immediately as I can play back the camera footage as needed. Video is stored both onsite and live on the Internet, so keep your clothes on when outside your RV (or not, your choice).

    Umm.. long story short. no privacy, no pretty views. Your view was a scrap yard or something like that. If you need a place to stop for a night, perfect.. but our stay was ....... very unpleasant

    Gerald is an incredible host that would reeginer the world if he had the time. We had great conversations about RVs (battery power and water recycling systems), electric powered bikes and Chinese culture.

    Nice site to visit San Antonio from. I had a few conversations with Gerald, he has had many interesting experiences. From RVing to racing to engineering, we could have gone on for hours. We had to change our travel plans a couple times, and communication was fast and easy. We will stop by again when we are in the area.

    We had a wonderful stay, Gerald was wonderful to us, easy going and there to help. We had great talks about everything and learned a few things also. He was very accommodating to us when we had to go to the pet emergency hospital with our german shepherd in San Antonio. We felt really safe over there and slept really good. If we have to go by again we will definatly stay there again. Thank You!!!
