About Pam Merkin

David and Pam bought this townhome for their oldest son in 2001 when he was a sophmore at Texas A&M. Their second son also lived here while going to Texas A&M. They have a daughter who is also attending Texas A&M and she lives in another of the townhomes that they own in the same complex. They have decided to share this townhome with out of town visitors to Texas A&M for home football games, graduation, Parent's weekend or college visits. We allow pets since we don't travel without our little 'Angel' our Yorkie and know how hard it is to find a place that allows special family members.

Very good experience

  • 5 of 5
I took my family to a wedding in College Station and stayed at this rental. It was perfect! Our son had fun counting all of the ducks! We no issues with anything and the owner was very responsive to any questions. She shared her cell phone number with us in case we needed anything. We didn't need it, but it was good to know that she was only a phone call away. I would recommend this to any families interested in a nice place close to campus at a reasonable rate.

Great place. The family had a great time. This was a much better option than renting a hotel, it really did feel like a "home away from home".

First time in Texas

  • 5 of 5
We were in Texas for a wedding at College Station. During our week stay we had up to seven people staying at the townhome. The three bedrooms and two baths meet our needs very well. The kitchen was well equiped with everything we needed. The property was clean and well-maintained, except for a stain on a carpet in one of the bedrooms. The owner was very helpful in answering all our questions. The washer & dryer came in very helpful. We would recommend seeing the George Bush Presidential Library on the Texas A & M campus. We would definitely recommend this property & plan on staying there again if we return to Texas.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this "ducky place". It is clean and cared for well. The neighbors were quiet and we enjoyed walking around the neighborhood with our dog. The home is well equipped and we especially appreciated the generous supply of necessities... toilet paper, soap, dishwashing liquid, shampoo, cleaning supplies, etc. The kitchen had everything we needed... and more! The house is warm and welcoming... making it a true "Home away from home". It is filled with duck things and A&M stuff :-). Pam was very responsive and easy to work with... the entire transaction and stay were very pleasant.

A Grand Slam of a place!

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of three adults and 4 girls staying for the week long Grand Slam tournament. This place is clean and well maintained. Pam was so nice and thoughtful to check in with us to make sure all was well. The girls really enjoyed counting all the ducks in the house and we began affectionately referring to it as "the Quack House" LOL! Accommodations were plenty spacious and lived larger than the pictures. The kitchen was completely stocked with plenty of pots and pans, utensils, everything needed to cook meals. We were very appreciative that ample supplies such as napkins, paper towels, trash bags, toilet paper, and laundry detergent were easy provided. The beds were comfortable as were the linens and towels. Trains rolled by at night but didn't bother anyone in our group. My daughter REALLY enjoyed hearing them. We all were able to gather round the dining table for games and meals. At times we were all on different schedules but the layout of the property and the convenience of TVs in every bedroom made it easy on all of us. We all want to visit again during next year's slam!
