About Frank Almaraz

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

Frank Almaraz purchased this house in 1992

Why Frank Almaraz chose San Antonio

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.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is conveniently located near downtown San Antonio and the freeways. My husband, 17 yr old son and I stayed here for a week on vacation. Each bedroom and the living room has a cable TV, which prevented a problem if someone was up early or late or wanted to watch a different program. The kitchen is equipped with a nice refrigerator, microwave, gas stove, coffee maker, pots/pans, etc. Previous guests had left spices, condiments, coffee, etc. We used some that was there and left some that we bought. Check the cupboards before you grocery shop. Making breakfast or dinner and relaxing at "home" made this trip more enjoyable. The bathroom has a claw foot tub with a raindrop shower head. The towels are big and fluffy. The rooms have louvered blinds, which can be a problem for those that are light sensitive in the mornings. The sun doesn't come in the bedrooms but the rooms do lighten up. The pool is great for lounging in (there are noodles and floating pads) or sitting on the edge and soaking your toes. My husband and I put our feet in one evening while talking with another couple who was renting another unit on the property. We enjoyed being able to talk with them in a quiet private setting. A washer and dryer are provided for your use, which was wonderful. I was able to go home and not have to worry about doing "vacation" laundry. According to Brett, the owner who lives upstairs of this unit, the train is not supposed to blow its whistle in the area but we did hear it at night on two different occasions. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and hearing the birds at the birdhouse outside brought a smile every morning. We rarely heard Brett upstairs when he was there. It was nice to know he was around should we have a problem and he's funny, enjoyable and wiling to share his knowledge of the area when you talk to him. Brett takes pride in his property and is continually working to improve the units. I recommend this rental (and his other units here) if you are in the area.

Very nicely renovated and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The rental was very nice. It was raining off and on the whole time we were there and therefore did not get to use the pool. However the pool area is very nice, and they were in the process of planting flowers and putting flowering hibiscus plants in huge pots around the pool. Very pretty. The back patio area with the grill is very nice as well even though we were not able to use due to the weather. If we ever to go San Antonio again we would stay there again. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook with. the bathroom was nicely stocked as well. Very nice property and very friendly employees. If we needed anything they would get it for us.

Perfect getaway for enjoying our son's Air Force BMT graduation

  • 5 of 5

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.
