Hi. I'm Gerron along with my wife Nina own the remains of a 1900 historic farmstead in San Antonio we call "Ione Farm." We fell in love with the farm the moment we set eyes on the property. We hope you will also love the farm.

Our current project is a 50 year old building in the complex, we call the guesthouse, converting into two units adjacent to our windmill. One of the units, " the chicken house" is ready for occupancy, charming studio layout with a kitchen.

Interaction with guests

One of the reasons we are making the farm open to Airbnb guests is to give you'll a window into early 20th century farm life.

This is probably my last major project, having professionally restoring historic structures since 1970. We live and work on the farm on a daily basis but still are a long ways from completing our goals.

My husband and I LOVED The Chicken House!! Gerron and Nina were amazing hosts! Super friendly and they make you feel like family as soon as you’re on the property. The location is very easy to jump on the highways and access downtown San Antonio and some great little neighborhoods with cafes and restaurants nearby. I loved having a little kitchen to cook meals and we even had eggs from their chicken, Susie Q! The bed is super comfortable and we loved it here! We will definitely be back when we come back to San Antonio!! Also check out their other unit! They had just finished it and we got a peek inside and it’s amazing also! That unit has a bedroom separate from the living space of a kitchen and sitting area.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the chicken house for 3 days. Gerron and Nina were awesome hosts. They were very kind and provided us with the most amazing hospitality. The chicken house was very clean and equipped with everything that we needed for our stay including a full kitchen. We appreciated the personal touches that they have put into making their guesthouse feel like home. We also got to view their second guesthouse, The Farm Manager's Residence, when they were staging it. Everything looks wonderful as well. We will definitely come back when we get a chance. We would recommend everyone to stay with Gerron and Nina when you visit San Antonio. The location is also unbeatable.

I stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend. We absolutely loved the place! It was very cute and we loved all the little chicken themed details. My boyfriend was delighted to make Susie Q's acquaintance and feed her some meal worms. The bed was very comfortable and we appreciated the breakfast items made available in the fridge.

Charming apartment on a beautiful property. Nina and Gerron were lovely hosts and made us feel at home at once. The place is ideal to explore downtown San Antonio and quickly escape the rush of the city We'd love to come back soon.

My wife and I had such a good time in San Antonio and the Chicken House was the cherry on top! The pics provided don't do it justice. Its super clean and has unique little touches that make it a pleasant place to lay your head. Gerron and Nina set a personalized code for your front door to make it easy to get it. Felt very safe and they even left some snacks in the fridge to enjoy! We felt at home. My wife witnessed Susie the Chicken lay an egg and its something she will never forget. Gerron and Nina are the sweetest people and we are looking to stay again soon! You cannot go wrong with this Air BnB.
