About Tami Hughes

I am the Owner and I have prepared the house to accommodate you in most everyway. Feel free to call me regarding any questions. I want your stay to be joyful and memorable.

Tami Hughes purchased this house in 2003

Why Tami Hughes chose Windermere Lakes

I know you will enjoy the details of this home and feel you are at a resort. So relax and enjoy everything this home has to offer from the waterview, indoor and outdoors speakers, mood lighting in master bedroom and den, fishing and paddleboat outside your back door. In addition to multiply grocery and retail stores right outside main Community entrance.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the water views and access and had to build a home.

Owner's Response: The Tunstalls, wanted to cook during their stay and we're able to utilize the kitchen which is fully stocked for cooking and serving a large group. They took excellent care of the house and received their deposit back in 4 days after check-out.

The house was absolutely amazing and very clean! The location was very convenient because it was pretty much 30 mins away from everything. The lakeside view the house had was beautiful as well. I really enjoyed staying here and would recommend anyone to stay here whenever they're in town!

Amazing Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeds the pictures and description provided. If you are looking for a well decorated and comfortable home for your next vacation or extended work trip, this is perfect! The home is well maintained with an inviting layout and lovely bedrooms. The kitchen is also well stocked with pots, pans, small appliances, etc. We really enjoyed waking up to the water views each morning and sitting on the outside patio in the evening. The owner provides everything you need in the home! It is also walking distance to the community fitness center and pool.

The neighborhood is conveniently located near restaurants and grocery stores with quick access to the interstate to downtown. In addition, it was very easy to access entry to the home and the owner was very accommodating to our needs. Our family made great memories staying in this lovely home!! We will definitely stay here again when in the Houston area!!

Tami the owner was absolutely incredible 1 of the best vacations I've been on. Her home was amazing. it was clean well maintained very spacious me and friends had a blast my favorite feature was the sound system connected through out the entire house. I loved the fact it was close to all major super markets and restaurants which made a very convenient location. Tami was very helpful and provided alot of extras which really made me and my guests enjoy our Trip. I would definitely go back if I'm back in Huston

Owner's Response: I am so glad this was your best vacation. As you had mentioned to me by phone that you were looking forward to using the paddleboat; I could tell the group had a marvelous time taking turns and going for a stroll on the lake. God Bless.
