HomeAway is the world leader in vacation rentals with over 1 million listings. We offer the largest selection of properties for any travel occasion and every budget. We're committed to helping families and friends find a perfect vacation rental to create unforgettable travel experiences together.
We chose this property because of the fantastic location close to Bellaire/Chinatown and vicinity to Terry Hershey Park, because we love running/biking and being active. You get the perks of being close to the city without feeling crowded by the city noise and traffic.
BDC. Coatings.com had a pleasant stay at this address. The house was clean and fully stocked with all your home item needs. We stay frequently at the VRBO homes all over the US. for business and family adventures. I would recommend this location to all my friends and family. Nice Home.

Nice, Spacious Home, Great Location, But Too Personalized To Be A Vacation Rental
3 of 5
*Upon arrival, we were greeted with a nice open home, located in a quiet neighborhood right off of the busyness of Westheimer Rd. While reviewing the house, we started noticing that the house was filled with the owners things, and it started to feel as if we were housesitting instead of on vacation.
*When we started to unpack, we noticed there was no where to put our belongings. The closets and drawers had the owners items still in there, and the closet in the office was locked and unusable. So, we ended up having nowhere to put up our clothes.
*The house is covered with personalized, breakable figurines, plates, pictures, etc in every area of the house (bedroom, family room, office, kitchen, hallway, etc). I feel in opening up the house for the public to use, it should be de-personalized and have a neutral setting geared to everyone.
*In the listing, it stated there were "pantry items", which we took it to mean, there were items stocked in the pantry for guest to use. When we read the handout left, it stated to not eat any in the pantry, which is somewhat misleading to what was in the listing. Every kitchen drawer, cabinet, shelf, etc had items and we were not able to put our groceries anywhere except on the island and the counter behind it. Also, the wall unit oven/microwave was not usable. We were really counting on using it for the holiday, but were able to use the stand alone oven.
*The living room was nice and cozy, it just didn't have a remote for the DVD player. We bought along some DVD games, but was unable to use them without a remote. There was ABSOLUTELY NO CABLE in the family room nor bedroom.
*The garage was unusable due to a car being parked inside of it by the owner
*The first day we used the shower, I noticed it started accumulating water at the bottom, and to my surprise it had hair clogging the drain! Also, you had to shake the toilet handle. The water in the entire house took too long to heat up.
*The ac/heat was imbalanced. Some rooms would be hot while others were cold.
*On one day when we were out, someone came by the house to cover the outdoor plants, but that was a little creepy since we didn't know anyone was suppose to come by the house.
*The master bed was a bit small (a little bigger than a twin) and unstable for 2 people to sleep on.
*Overall, it was a nice, spacious house, but not really suitable for a vacation rental.
