I've been working on the property for some time and am very pleased with the outcome.
Frank Almaraz purchased this house in 1992
Recently renovated and well appointed. I put thought in to every decision putting the place together.
So very close to downtown, but also close to shopping, groceries, drug stores, and antiquing.
This house was clean, comfortable and close to everything we needed. My family stayed 6 nights for my son's graduation from BMT in the Air Force at Lackland, AFB. We also stayed after the weekend to enjoy some of the great things San Antonio had to offer. We were 15 minutes from the Air Force Base and 5 minutes from downtown. The neighborhood was comfortable so we could also enjoy the porch and walking. Brett was the perfect host helping us with directions, replacing a burnt light bulb, and cooking us a real Texas BBQ on the last night. Thank you again for making this feel like home away from home.
The beds were so comfortable!
We had a relaxing, cozy time. The house is located in a historic district with unending charm. The design was clean and calming; it honors the age of the home and neighborhood, yet is upgraded with modern technology and amenities.
Our family of 3 visits family in San Antonio regularly and we always rent a home so that we can have our private family time and enjoy entertaining our family. Our prior 'go-to' home was sold and we were happy to find this home.
Brett was so accommodating in ensuring we had baking supplies for making our Christmas cookies and making us feel welcome to BBQ and entertain our guests in the house and in the lovely courtyard by the pool. We had super weather despite the forecast and enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. We met neighbors and other visitors on our walks and found the neighborhood very safe and friendly.
The drive to the River Walk was lovely down San Pedro - much more relaxed than getting on the highway - as we enjoyed seeing more of the character of the area by going through the charming neighborhood. We also had occasion to use the local post office which I mention because it was the best post office experience I've ever had - a testament to this San Antonio neighborhood that each postal employee smiled and said hello.
So, back to the property - it was a perfect size for our small family - with a roomy and fun kitchen, comfy living room, the two bedrooms and a large bathroom. We enjoyed being surrounded by light in the master bedroom and my daughter was thrilled that she had a huge bed to herself and her stuffed animals. The furnishings and decor intentionally pull together some vintage items with some modern comforts. I loved the claw foot tub and the amazing gas stove. Brett showed us how to use the old stove and once we got over a bit of fear, it was terrific. It has really been kept in amazing condition and looks so great - they just dont make anything that well anymore I guess (can't imagine my stove working 50 or 60 years from now). We spent a lot of time enjoying the front porch and the courtyard area. There is plenty of seating and open space for gathering or just sitting back and reading in the warm sun. The separate laundry came in handy. A dishwasher was missed just a touch but not much.
Brett also showed me the other apartments on the property and I was very impressed with the decorating and workmanship. I was glad to know he also plans to renovate the property next door and cannot wait to see his vision brings to life. I was a little concerned about the old building next door when we first looked at the house and was glad to know he is planning to restore it.
We had a great time staying at this rental. The price was right and we brought the pups. The owner was nice and was onsite if we had any issues. Would recommend.
Brett and Frank are one of a kind!! Highly recomend this place, it's in the best location of San Antonio and you couldn't feel any safer! We stayed for 3 months and had the greatest experience!
My Mom, husband & I came to San Antonio for my brother's wedding and stayed 3 nights. The house is super convenient to both the airport and attractions (Alamo, Riverwalk, etc) and has Amazing character. Frank & Brett were just the right combination of warm, friendly and inviting without being overbearing. Beds were super comfy and since we were staying with my Mom, it was great that the bedrooms weren't right on top of each other- we both had space to go to when we wanted to. Neighborhood was very quiet. Once the pool is completed, it will be the perfect spot to gather & relax!
All-in-all, we have found our place when we come back to visit!
We are 10 minutes from The Alamo, River Walk, Mission Trails, The Historic Pearl, San Antonio Museum of Art, the Zoo, the McNay Art Museum, El Mercado and the Botanical Center. 25 minutes to Sea World, Fiesta Texas (Six Flags), and the Palladium IMAX theater. We're on the cusp of the Hill Country, which boasts world class antique shopping (Fredericksburg) and numerous wineries (Bending Branch recommended).
