About Brett Schneider

I've been working on the property for some time and am very pleased with the outcome.

Brett Schneider purchased this house in 1992

Why Brett Schneider chose Alta Vista

Recently renovated and well appointed. I put thought in to every decision putting the place together.

What makes this house unique

So very close to downtown, but also close to shopping, groceries, drug stores, and antiquing.

Everything you need.

  • 4 of 5

A very delightful and spacious place to stay at. Quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the lovely relaxing pool area although it was too cool to swim. Well maintained. Check-in and check out procedures easy to follow. Ample parking. Friendly neighbors.

Good value for money.

Very Charming

  • 3 of 5

Nicely renovated 2 bedroom main floor accomodation. Large backyard with swimming pool. This property is located in the older part of San Antonio and is an approx 10 min drive from downtown. Owner is very friendly and lives upstairs. Being an older home the floor boards above are a little thin and you can hear any movement from upstairs but that was the only drawback. Nice home away from home.

An Absolute Treasure with a Gracious Host in the Heart of San Ant

  • 5 of 5

The care and dedication that the owner puts in this property is immediately apparent as soon as you arrive and if you're anything like us you'll fall in love with the property too. We stayed for six weeks over the summer while moving from Germany to Texas and Brett went out of his way to be welcoming and make the move as easy as possible. The home is family friendly with just the right mix of antique charm and modern conveniences. The antique furnishings (claw foot tub and antique dressers) blend well with high speed internet, 3 HD TVs with cable (HBO,STARZ,SHO), fantastic laundry facility, etc., Brett is very responsive to any issues and just very considerate in general. Of course it goes without saying that the well maintained pool provides an excellent opportunity to rest and relax in the evenings and we're going to miss it in our new home. We will definitely be booking this property for all our visiting friends & family whenever they come to town.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Vacation Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Love, love, loved this vacation treasure! In town to attend my niece's HS graduation and this was the perfect spot for family coming in from out of town. The property is gorgeous and is located in a university community. The place was clean, stocked kitchen (pots, pans, coffee maker etc.), nice vintage touches throughout, washer & dryer, air conditioner, TVs in every room, Wifi, clean towels, clean sheets & blankets, and super comfy beds. The property owner was very nice and responsive. Similarly, the maintenance person who lives on the propoerty with his family was really helpful and welcoming. There is a community garden down the street where you can pick fresh spices and veggies, we used ours for a couple of super yummy meals. A plus was the backdoor to our unit opened up to the awesome swimming pool at the back of the property. We spent lots of time swimming, cooking, and catching up with family. Had a small gathering during our stay and everyone raved about this amazing find. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town!

Very relaxing and clean property

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean apartment with a lot of characters and thoughtful detail.

Brett showed us everything and my husband specially liked the gas stove. We enjoyed the pool and relaxing outside in the beautiful garden. We already booked our next stay and looking forward to be soon again.
