LOVELY HOME IN PEACEFUL, SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD - NEAR I-45, LAKE CONROE

Panorama Village House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms (one king, one full, and 2 twins), 2 full bathrooms; sleeps 6

Witt House is located in peaceful Panorama Village. This home is in a safe neighborhood with friendly people and its own police force. You can be a guest in this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with a garage (room enough for one car) and a lovely landscaped garden out back for just 2 - 3 days or for a few months. Either way, you will feel like this is your home away from home. Your boat can be parked in the driveway for up to a week.

This home has been decorated with a focus toward peace and comfort and is a great place to relax with comfy chairs and couch. Most of the pictures on the walls are actually photographs printed on canvas which speak to the person who loves nature and also bring the beauty indoors. The family room has a cozy feel and has a flat screen TV mounted on the wall. A small selection of DVDs and CD's are available, and some family games are provided for quality family time.

The dining table seats up to 6, and there are 2 bar stools for extra seating. The kitchen has a stove, fullsize refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender, and circus animal waffle maker for the kids. We have tried to think of and provide all the things you might need in the kitchen for cooking. Some spices are provided. You will find a starter package of dishwasher soap/detergent, paper goods, laundry detergent, and coffee/tea. A fullsize washer and dryer are located in a small utility room off the kitchen. Start your morning outside on the patio in comfortable wicker chairs with your coffee or tea, and listen to the chirping of the birds while you watch the squirrels scampering and the birds and butterflies fluttering around.

The three bedrooms are decorated as getaways where you can relax after your day. The master features a kingsize bed with a beautiful blue quilt and luxurious sheets. You will see a canvas of beautiful Moraine Lake and snowcapped mountains above the bed as you enter the bedroom. There is also a photo of the ocean taken from the island of Lanai and another of an East Texas lake. The bedroom, dressing area, and bath (with its tub/shower) are decorated in a soothing blue, and you will find soft, thick towels for your use. A large dresser and walk-in closet can hold all the clothes you want to bring as well as empty suitcases and other gear. A flatscreen tv is provided for your entertainment.

The second bedroom is the 'giraffe room' and has a precious picture of a Kenyan giraffe that we saw and photographed while in Kenya. It has twin beds and is suitable for children or anyone who loves animals in the wild. This room has a small chest with two drawers and also a closet for clothes.

The bed in the third bedroom has a very comfortable fullsize mattress. We feel such a sense of peace as we walk into this room. A photo of a green ladybug nestled in bright yellow flower petals is the focal point in this room. A large dresser with a mirror and a closet are provided for your clothes.

The second bath has a tub/shower and soft towels and is decorated in calming greens and browns.

Cleanliness and your health are very important to us. After each guest leaves, we sanitize all door knobs, light switches, etc., and we wash all pillow protectors and sheet protectors. We try to use natural or organic cleaning supplies. To start your vacation, we also provide natural or organic toiletries.

For us, this is a house of joy, peace, and comfort, and we hope you will experience that when you come here. We give 10% of the earnings of Witt House to help the people living in an Internally Displaced People camp in Kenya and/or to other international and local ministries. You can see pictures and read about the IDP camp in this home. When we visited this camp, a little girl grabbed my daughter's hand and didn't let go. We have placed a picture of those hands in the entry of our home. This picture is a reminder to us of the people in the IDP camp, and it also speaks to us in so many other ways. We also use funds from Witt House to support Margaret, an orphan who lives at Into Abbas Arms, an orphanage in Kenya. We personally know the lady who started the orphanage and believe in the wonderful work she does in Kenya for these children. You can go to www.intoabbasarms.org for information.

Perfect retreat and and oasis!

  • 5 of 5
This home is everything it's described ! The owners are very friendly and very very accommodating? We thoroughly enjoyed our most comfortable stay during my son's wedding weekend! It was in a great location for the shopping we needed to do, while the guys hung out at the house and watched TV!!
We also liked having a wonderfully supplied kitchen to prepare breakfast...the whole house and yard is SPOTLESS and very appealing!! The beds are extremely comfortable and inviting! I would most definitely recommend this home as your next stay in the North Houston area!!

The Best Rental House

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for family reunion and medical checkups for 6 weeks. The house is in excellent condition, very clean and homey. Karen and Paul take care of the house and their guests. We were treated like old friends. We had such a warm and friendly welcome, it was hard to believe that we were just one of many.

Wooden floor, comfortable beds, fancy coffee machine, woods and birds around the house, very quiet and safe neighborhood. The golf course is in a very good condition, never crowded, at least in summer months. The community pool is very clean and has lifeguards on duty all the time. Panorama Village is a beautiful place to walk, there are few playgrounds and a basketball court.

It is nicely situated north of Conroe. I had to go to West Houston 3 times a week, it is a long drive, but it was well worth it. We all enjoyed our stay in this homey house. Thank you, Karen and Paul!

great home! great location! we loved it!

  • 5 of 5
As Canadians, we like to come to Texas for the month of March to play golf, and this year Witt House was our home away from home. We loved it from the minute we arrived and tasted the welcome cookies that Karen left for us. The entire house was fresh and clean, and everything we needed was provided. I mentioned to Karen that I drink hot tea, and two days later a brand new whistling tea kettle showed up at the door. We were very comfortable here, and hope we can come back next year. I would certainly recommend this rental home to anyone looking for a quiet, safe place to stay. Easy access to 1-45 so very handy to a vast choice of eating places, grocery stores, and shopping places.

One of the best

  • 5 of 5
We have used VRBO as a source for many vacations and have always had good experiences. The Kitt House was no exception and by far one of the best homes we have stayed in. My husband, mother-in-law and myself came from CA to TX to visit our kids and grandkids and this was an idea location between both families, being right off the "45" freeway. The house was very well equipped and we needed nothing, other than to stock the fridge. The master bed was so comfortable, I couldn't wait to go to bed and didn't want to get up in the morning. The third bedroom was perfect for the couple nights we had the grandkids stay over. My mother-in-law doesn't get around too well, but the single story made it easy for her. No steps anywhere and the access to the garage made for a short distance between the car and house. I would highly recommend the Kitt house to anyone looking for comfort and location. We will be back again!

Only one mile from I-45 in Conroe. Very nice property, nice bedrooms, comfy beds, regular sized kitchen. Owners live two doors down in case of problems. House has been rented many, many times from people all over the world visiting the area, according to the guest book. I would definitely rent again when visiting the Renaissance Festival.

Witt House is located in Panorama Village which is built around a 27-hole golf course. It is a peaceful, safe neighborhood that has its own police force on duty 24 hours a day. You will enjoy golfing , walking, bicycling (bring your own), or just relaxing in this peaceful setting with beautiful, tall trees. There are neighborhood parks for children, a basketball court, and a community swimming pool that is open 10 am to 8 pm M-S and 1pm to 7 pm on Sundays during the summer months.

Less than 2 miles away are The Conroe Outlet Mall as well as shopping centers which include Kohls, Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Kirklands, TJ Maxx, and many others. There are too many restaurants to name within 5 miles. Italian, Mexican, homestyle, Japanese, barbecue, seafood, and Chinese are just some of the types of foods from which you can choose.

A favorite spot of ours is Chocolate Passion, located in Conroe, They have fine, handmade chocolates made from Venzuelan chocolate by a chocolatier as well as a lunch menu.

Within 5 miles is the city of Conroe. Visit the Heritage House Museum and learn about the county's history, or attend the free concerts held there on the first Thursday of each month. Candy Cane Park and the City of Conroe Aquatic Center are fun places to visit. You can swim laps, participate in a water aerobics class, or play tennis; your children can play in the small water park or on the playground. Creighton Theater, Owens Theater, the Corner Pub, and Thomas Kinkade Art Gallery are all located in historic downtown Conroe.

Boating, fishing, water skiing, tubing, jet skiing, and watching the sun set on beautiful Lake Conroe are exciting ways to spend your time while visiting in this area. The nearest marina is about 6 miles away. There is room in Witt House driveway to park your boat for daily or weekly rentals. For a month or longer rentals, there are marinas where your boat can be housed for a fee. Boats and waverunners can be rented on Lake Conroe. You can also take an afternoon or romantic dinner cruise on the Southern Empress paddleboat.

About 15 miles away in the historic town of Montgomery, you can shop for antiques and collectibles and visit Cork This Winery for wine tasting. Bernhardt Winery is another option a little further west.

Sixteen miles toward Houston is The Woodlands Mall and Market Street where you will find amazing shopping opportunities and upscale stores and boutiques. The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion, where you can attend outdoor concerts, is also located in The Woodlands.

For hiking enthusiasts, Sam Houston National Park with its Lone Star Trail (20 miles to the north) and W. Goodrich Jones State Park (12 miles to the south) are options.

Within a 20 mile radius, there are a large number of worldclass golf courses including TPC Woodlands, Woodforest, and Palmer Course. A little farther away is RedStone. This is a wonderful location for a golfing vacation as there are so many courses within 30 miles that you would not be able to play them all unless you were here for several months.

Houston, with its theaters, the Galleria, the zoo, and art and science museums, is just 45 miles away. Houston is also the home of several professional sports teams, and we love to go and watch The Astros, The Rockets, and The Texans play. The Houston Med Center and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center is 50 miles away, while the closest M.D. Anderson Center in The Woodlands is just 13 miles away.

The nearest beach is 94 miles away on Galveston Island where you can bask in the sun and play in the surf or build sandcastles and eat delicious seafood at the famous Guido's restaurant. Schlitterbahn Water Park and Moody Gardens Aquarium are also located on the island.
