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 bought a third townhome March 2016 next door to this one and have it listed on verb also. 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.

Pam Merkin purchased this townhome in 2001

nice and spacious with room for all the family

  • 5 of 5

Was really happy with the rental. Had the opportunity to meet Pam and was very nice and pleasant. I am originally from the Bryan -College Station area and have been living in western PA for the last 25 years. I have been down to visit my family numerous times but this was the first time that I had planned a vacation with all my 3 grown children and 5 grand children so I really needed something with ample room. We all were very happy with our stay at Navarro Dr and would surely recommend it to anyone looking for a spacious and convenient place to stay.

Ducks, ducks everywhere

  • 5 of 5

Lots of ducks to count, such a cute decorating idea. We came to visit relatives and had plenty of room to spread out and visit. There were tvs in each bedroom as well as the living room. The owners were easy to work with and the place is a real "Home away from Home". We will be back

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Duck Pond twice now and it has been a perfect place to stay both times. The home is clean and very comfortable and its proximity to the University is perfect. Will definately stay here again.

Nice but could use some updates on beds

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice time and the house met all our needs. The decor was cute and the house was well stocked with everything we would need.

Owner's Response: I will take our suggestion on new beds, but I believe beds are a personal preference. I let this renter check in early and also check out late, but I guess some people can't be pleased.

Great for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and updated home. 3 separate bedrooms, one with a queen and 2 bunks, so this worked out great with the 3 kids that we had with us. Kitchen and living area open and spacious for family gathering. Loved the Keurig coffee maker, we certainly drank our fair share of the coffee that was provided. Much nicer and costs less than have 3 hotel rooms, highly recommend.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in College Station for my daughter's wedding in Millican. All of our vendors were in Bryan and College Station. This location was perfect because it was right in the middle of everything. The property is very well furnished and maintained. The owners are also very accommodating. My mother has a companion animal and we were very fortunate that they allowed her dog to stay. I don't know that I will ever need to stay in College Station again, but if I do, I will definitely stay here. Thank you, Pam Merkin.
