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.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to San Antonio, and really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful property in Alta Vista. Charming, comfortable accommodations, and it was fun to be in a real, upcoming neighborhood to get a sense of the city and its people. Thank you, Brett!

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.
