The location and size of the condo were perfect for my husband and I. It was closed to the Galleria and Westheimer, besides the condo had all the amenities we needed. The Property Manager was very kind to leave detergent and other cleaning products so we were able to do our laundry in the premises.
If we go back to Houston most definitely we would like to rent it again!

AVERAGE AT BEST AND NOT WHAT WE THOUGHT

  • 3 of 5
First of all let me start out by saying I have never written a review before, but after solely using the reviews when deciding on this rental I felt the need to give my opinion.
When we got to the "condo" on Monday at 3:45pm it had not yet been cleaned! I called Stacy immediately and she didn't answer, I left a voicemail. When she didn't call back an hour later I sent her a text message. Still no call after 30 minutes, so I decided to call again. She did answer this time and said she didn't receive my voicemail and was extremely nonchalant. I explained to her the rental was not clean and she was quite upset! She said she would go immediately and clean it herself. She went there and was finished cleaning by around 8pm. I did appreciate her urgency in taking care of the situation.
Secondly the description of this rental as condo or townhouse is in my opinion not accurate, this is an apartment in an apartment complex. Also the area was not at all what we expected based on the description. While it was a 10 minute drive on the interstate to Galleria it is not in any of the "nice" parts of Houston and is located in a very sketchy part of town. All the surrounding businesses have 8 foot bars wrapped around them!
The most distressing part to my family was that we had only 4 towels to use for the entire trip! The party included myself my husband and two children for 5 days! There was a washer and dryer but only half a cap of detergent left to use, so I could only wash the towels once and we had to share and re use towels the entire time. That might not bother some, but for us it was disturbing. Lastly there was a coffee pot but the can of coffee had only on teaspoon left in it! So I ended up having to buy a container of coffee.
Otherwise I would say the apartment is as described as far as the layout.

Owner's Response: Dear Lynn,
I thank you for your review and I hope to give a response that is in the best interests of all the guests and inquirers.
I want to let you know that I do try my best to have good cleaning staff and rarely do I not answer my phone. My cleaning staff had an emergency and was not able to call me because she had left her phone at home. I cleaned it as soon as I could, given the response time, and I apologized out of my concern for your inconvenience. I have always told my guests to call if they need anything. I could have provided extra towels if you would have let me know that you were going to need them. NOTE: I usually do not provide clothes soap or coffee, if there is any soap or coffee in the condo other guests have left it behind, however, I usually remove all food that is left behind for safety reasons.
These condos are in a gated condo complex with individually owned condos, it is not apartments. These units are two story and you walk into them on the bottom floor into the living room, kitchen, washer dryer, 1/2 bath, dining and a fire place and patio. Then you walk upstairs into the large bedroom and full bath with two large closets. The condos are in a 4 plexus and there is a home owners association. This area of town is safe and quiet and only 4 miles from the Galleria mall. The street where the condos are located is a short street that intersects with the 3 main streets that lead into the Galleria. Westheimer, Richmond and Westpark. We have no zoning in Houston so on this street there are businesses, houses, condo complexes, apartments, a fire station and a city park. To get a place right in the heart of the Galleria it would cost a whole lot more per night. One final note; I am a realtor here in. Houston and my daughter and son in law bought this condo in 2006 and I would not have let them buy it if it was not a good area.

Take care and thank you for your review.

HOUSTON STAY

My husband and I stayed at this condo starting Friday, Dec. 20th. The instructions provided to us to enter the condo were easy to follow. The condo was clean, cheery and was very accessible from the parking stalls. We enjoyed our stay very much, and would consider staying there again next year. Centrally located, thank you for a great stay.

VISITING SON FOR CHRISTMAS

  • 4 of 5
I really liked the condo, it was very clean, roomy and it very close to downtown Houston. The only problem we had was it got very hot in the condo when you cooked or took showers. There wasn't any vents working in the upstairs bathroom, which you could not stand it in the bathroom afterwards. But was a very nice place to stay. The renter was great and friendly, helped every way she could. Thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: Hi Sheila,
Thank you for your review. I have never had anyone mention it being hot or not vented well. There is an AC vent in both bathrooms and a large vent in the bedroom, not to mention a brand new ceiling fan in the bedroom and also the AC/ heater is brand new. It was very cold that week and heat rises so next time just run the fan only on the AC thermostat when you shower and put the ceiling fan on high for good circulation throughout the condo.

Have a Happy New Year!

We stayed at this 1 bedroom townhouse with a pool, it was very clean inside and very quiet! The area was nice close drive to the Galleria and easy to get to 59 highway. If you have a car this is a great place to stay.
