WATERFRONT CONDO STEPS FROM THE LAKE WITH 180 DEGREE VIEWS

Montgomery Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 2.5 Bath Steps from the Dock

Conroe is just the right blend of starry nights and city lights. And similarly, this condo can provide a family-friendly, fun and activity-filled vacation or a romantic and relaxing getaway. We are a corner unit steps from all the Country Club amenities

The downstairs is an open floor plan with a two story-high ceiling living room that has a big comfortable overstuffed sectional couch. The kitchen, dining room area and bar that seats 5 all look out onto the two story wall of windows with full Lake views.

The kitchen is fully equipped and functional with new stainless steel appliances, utensils, silverware, pots and pans and place settings that you could need. We even have an electric griddle and electric wine opener and decanter to make life a little easier. Paper supplies (paper towels, napkins and toilet paper) are provided.

The patio has a cozy two-person swing and a picnic table so no matter what mood you're in, you can sit outside and breathe in the water view. A charcoal grill is also available on the patio in case you catch some fish on the lake!

The Master Bedroom is on the first level. It includes a King Size Tempurpedic mattress with luxury linens and anti-allergenic mattress covers and pillows. It includes a walk-in closet and full bathroom with thick bath towels and beach towels.

Upstairs there are two rooms. One bedroom has two Queen size beds, walk-in closet and full bathroom with linens included. The second room is a 'family room' with two fold out couches (Full and Queen Size) and a Queen size Futon couch (extra linens are included for this room). This room has board games, DVDs, CDs, chess, checkers, Dart Board and all sorts of sporting equipment like tennis racquets, tube & rope and fishing gear. This 'family room' has a large window with amazing view of the clubhouse, pool and Lake Conroe. All rooms have a TV with either Apple TV, DirecTV and/or DVD as well as ipod docking stations.

The Condo has two parking spaces assigned and a gate with 24 hour security guards at the entrance to ensure safety and privacy. The property provides many amenities including:

-state of the art gym

-five pools (including a kids' pool and an adult pool). Pools are closed on Mondays.

-golf and pro shop, twilight golf

-indoor and outdoor tennis

-Snack bar, bar, and a restaurant, including a fabulous Sunday Brunch.

Since we are located so close to the Clubhouse, you will be a short walk or golf cart ride away from all the fun! You can rent a golf cart from the Pro Shop.

For Holiday weekends, the property celebrates 'Texas style' which is synonymous for BIG--Golf cart parade with prizes for best decorations, DJs at the pool, Evening Under the Stars themed parties, watermelon and pie eating contests, and much more. If you are looking for activities for the little ones, tennis and golf lessons are available and during peak/holiday weeks many creative and fun activities.

Within a few miles of the condo is the Waterpoint Marina where you can rent a boat for a few hours or the week and dock it right in front of the condo. Wonderful restaurants that overlook the lake are all around the Condo--most popular are Ransoms Steakhouse for a nice dinner, and the Magnolia Diner for a wonderful breakfast or lunch. Must see at Lake Conroe are Papa's on the Lake and Wolfie's Sports Bar both of which have amazing Lake Views.

For those that are not familiar with the area, it is 20 miles from Houston, Texas. Nestled in the lush Piney Woods of East Texas, Conroe embraces you with genuine Texas friendly hospitality. It has small town appeal and big city attractions just an hour away. If you are celebrating a special occasion, please let us know prior to arrival. No loud parties please. April Sound is a family environment.

We are a family with five kids ranging in age from 8 to 23 years old. We take advantage of the condo as much as we can but between soccer, lacrosse, volleyball and cross country it's hard to find a weekend to enjoy wonderful Lake Conroe.

There are lots of vacation rentals available but we believe this condo feels like a 'home'. The patio is wonderful because you can sit and relax, watch the sunset, or take a nap on the swing. Being able to dock right at the pier steps from your door is a unique benefit as is the fact that you can fish right off the same dock! In order to give locals the most out of their weekend escapes, let us know if you want an early check in or late check out and if we can accommodate, we will.

great location on the waterfront, near the country club. Extremely easy drive from Houston, even in rush hour traffic.

Very clean and very roomy. This condo could easily accommodate several people comfortably. Parking was right at the door to the condo.

Lovely covered patio overlooking the water, just off a large, grassy common area.

The country club was great! Quality food, nice atmosphere, good bar and patio area overlooking the lake. Lots to do (gym, pools, golf).

Everyone we dealt with was extremely pleasant and professional.

Owner's Response: SO glad you had a good time. There's nothing like being right by the water. There is plenty of room for a great big family to enjoy time together. Come again soon!

April Sound

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We stayed at the property before they were able to do necessary repairs, which was needed. Owner is very nice and advised that they were fixing miscellaneous items right after we left. The condo is roomy and was nice outside of what needed repair.

If you have guest with you and they stay in the bedroom above the master bedroom, you will be able to hear every move. I will leave it at that!

After speaking with other people vacationing in April Sound, we determined it is really not a winter vacation spot (for us) unless you like to golf and fish or just get out of real cold weather. You could swim in all of the pools, but they were not maintained very well since it is the off season and the water was cold in all of them and it didn't look like they had been cleaned for a while. They claim to have a marina but it is really just a ramp with some docks that you cannot use or rent. You can use the ramp. The docks are few and only for owners. There is no place to park a trailer for your boat except at the marina in a special spot and I was advised that the pass is only good for 48 hours. You would have to leave your boat there also. No trailers and boats are allowed near your condo. If you decide to tie your boat up to the wall and leave it over night on the water, you need to get a sticker from the April Point South association and I have no clue where that would be. Also if you decide to park your boat in front of this property, it could be hit by golf balls. The country club utilizes the water out side of the condo as its driving range. Did find one golf ball in the yard. If I was hitting the balls, you would not want your boat out there! All neighbors are friendly and appear to have at least one dog. Neighbors on both side of this condo each have two. They like to bark a lot. Our son and daughter in law stayed with us. They are from Houston and have a dog which was allowed by the owner and the main reason we stayed here.

If we do not want to take a dog the next time, I believe there are some other viable options / condos for 1/2 the money in the same area. I would like to try something the next time that has a boat slip.

We rented a pontoon boat from Conroe Boat Rental to try to see the lake. A lot of restrictions on the boat and it was a big old tank that the top would not go down so we could get some sun.

The club house which is close by has a live band every Friday night. That was a nice time as well.
Recommended for:  Pet-friendly
Owner's Response: April Sound is a laid back community of Lake lovers who want to have fun and a lot of them have pets, which we allow as well. We have never, ever had complaints about barking from other dogs or noise so I'm very surprised. We have wonderful neighbors who are helpful, resourceful and super friendly. They are long term residents of April Sound and always go out of their way to welcome our visitors.
We love "Winter Texans" and had a wonderful couple in our condo for three months. Some of the repairs that happened during their stay required a week of work and unfortunately, we didn't get a break in between our renters.
The day after Jeff left we brought in a team to install beautiful new window treatments, the refrigerator door handle replaced (less than a year old--buyers beware!), screen door replaced and all light switches clearly labeled and updated to dimmers among several other things. We have even brought in a new gas grill to make grilling those fresh fish from the Lake even easier!
Securing a pass to park a boat in front of the condo is simple and with advance notice I am more than happy to help with that. We send out a very clear Welcome Package a week before arrival with information on our preferred Marina--which is not the one our guest chose-- where you can rent jet skis, powerboats, pontoons that we have had wonderful experiences with (we also send links to weather, water levels, things to do in the area, restaurants, etc.).
We have been renting this condo for over two years to over 57 families who have given it 5 stars continuously. We have many repeat renters for weekend getaways as well as special occasions. We really appreciate feedback and know that with the few repairs and upgrades we have done, enjoying the Lake will be even better.

A Wonderful place for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
The place is beautiful just as it is in the photos. The owner was extremely nice and always available to answer any questions I had via text. It was bigger than I expected which was great since there were 9 of us staying there for the days surrounding Thanksgiving. Speaking of which, the kitchen was exceptional and we were able to cook an entire Thanksgiving meal there without any need for extra plates, utensils, pots, or pans. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that my family and I are able to coordinate our schedules again so that we can stay at this house next year!
Owner's Response: It makes me so happy to know the condo was filled with a happy family on a holiday like a Thanksgiving. We have five kids so the place is equipped and ready for anything! Hope to have you out again next year.

Perfect spot for a family

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
This condo was the perfect place for our family (3 generations); we loved all the space, comfort, and convenience, as well as the nice lake view from the patio. The sports fans were happy to find a TV in every bedroom, as well as the large-screen TV in the living room. On the patio, there was a swing and picnic table, and the condo is just a stone’s throw from April Sound’s restaurant, swimming, and tennis facilities. Everything was clean, linens and towels were plentiful, wifi was included; really everything we could have asked for, and more.
Owner's Response: I love it when we get a couple of families staying at the condo. It's a great place to enjoy time together. Hope to have you out again soon!
