About Marcus

My name is Marcus and I purchased the Monte Vista Apartments in 1992. Although the property was in good condition, I lovingly updated the building throughout the years, maintaining its historic character and charm. I personally manage the property and am committed to providing a comfortable living environment.

My husband and I stayed here for the month of April. It was everything we could want, very convenient to bus routes to downtown, which we took full advantage of. The apartment is clean and nicely furnished, with laundry facilities on site and private parking. Marcus was very attentive to any issues, and even provided a few grocery items for our first morning in San Antonio. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a place conveniently located to downtown.

Great location, historic Monte Vista property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a very nice stay here. It is an excellent location, minutes from downtown and The Pearl Brewery, with lots of restaurants, and also close to Alamo Heights and the Quarry. Easy to get to major museums and the botanical garden. Around the corner from our favorite Mexican restaurant, La Fonda! The place is historic and has lots of character, and the owner is extremely nice and will respond quickly to your questions and needs. Very clean, and perfect size for one or two people. Cute kitchen. Very comfortable bed (and we're quite picky, so that says a lot). Highly recommend.

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 weeks and just loved it - it was truly like a home away from home! The apartment is exactly as described and the photos are accurate. It's a clean, warm, inviting space in a safe and very quiet neighborhood. I enjoyed my daily walks looking at all the gorgeous historic homes surrounding the property - the neighborhood is very jogger friendly, too. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance as well as a wonderful local coffee shop. More food, shopping, sightseeing, etc. are a very short drive away. Guests without a car would also be comfortable here; I used public transportation a couple of times to explore the downtown area and found it very clean and easy to use.

The host, Marcus, is very thoughtful and responsive. He kept in contact with us before we checked-in to ensure that our arrival went smoothly. He put a few items in the fridge to tide us over so that we could sit and relax without worrying about our first meal. The kitchen was stocked with basic ingredients - oil, a salt and pepper, etc. as well as pots, pans, dishes - so when we finally made it to the grocery store, we could comfortably prepare our own meals. We never had any problems during our stay but when we did have questions, Marcus always responded within a few hours. We really couldn't have asked for a better experience as newcomers to San Antonio!

great find

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay. Marcus was once again a gracious host, calling on my arrival date to make sure everything was in order. He even provided a few goodies in the fridge. The apartment is conveniently located within walking distance of Trinity University. Very cozy and comfy place to stay. It is quiet, clean and well maintained.

Would definitely recommend it. And plan to stay here again on future trips to SA

Stayed for 2 months this summer. Place was cozy and comfortable. Very safe and quiet neighborhood. Owner very responsive ahead of time to power outage due to the early summer floods. Called us prior to our arrival to update us on status. Responded quickly to a wifi problem( also due to floods)

Would definitely recommend for long or short term stay
