About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Memorial Woods is a small quiet gated condominium community in Houston's upscale Memorial Area surrounded by tall pines and mansions. This condo is an ideal base for business in Houston. Completely renovated in 2011, this sparkling 5 room unit with spacious, fenced patio is a warm and convenient alternative to boxy hotels and stale corporate apartments. It's freshly furnished with comfortable and functional treatments. This condo is ready for business professionals or small families who need a quiet, temporary, fully-functional home in a compact package. All new surfaces, fixtures and furnishings here. HDTV with DirecTV satellite service (200 channels). And our housekeeper is THE BEST.

Functional, Beautiful, Convenient: Full Kitchen, Living Room, Dining, Bathroom, Bedroom (queen) and Bedroom (double bed). The French doors open between the bedrooms to provide an open suite if desired. There is covered parking 5 feet from the entry and overflow parking nearby. Full complement of dishes, utensils, linens, appliances and accessories.

Extremely convenient covered parking (automatically-lighted) at the door. You'll feel at home with the friendly neighbors at this safe enclave in the edge of Houston's famous Memorial Area.

Location provides quick access to Downtown (10 min) via the Silber Tunnel/I10 or to The Galleria (5 min), Reliant Stadium (15 min), Texas Medical Center (15 min) - all via the 610 Loop. The Energy Corridor is 10 minutes on the new Katy SuperFreeway. Ikea is 1/2 mile. Memorial Park and its famed running loop is a 3 minute drive from the door.

The Best of Houston is Minutes away: The Edwards Cinema and MarqE Restaurant and Entertainment complex are 2 minutes away. Restaurants and world-class shopping are in every direction. But in the Memorial Woods Condominiums, it's quiet and cozy.

The patio is comfortable, the Wi-Fi is fast, kitchen is shiny, TV is bright, Satellite is active, neighbors are, well, neighborly. If you're traveling downtown or to the Medical Center, the Memorial bus is a 2 minute walk (see Route 70 at RideMetro org, Stop #4)

See generous comments from previous guests. Our Mission is to provide the best value in Texas while enabling a superior guest experience.

You will feel at home at Memorial Woods: The community was built in the 70s but it's well kept, friendly and quiet. Unit is ground level and well-lighted covered parking is at the door. There are new mansions across the fence 100 feet to the south (there's an aging apartment complex nearby too, but we don't have any issues). Our Memorial Woods structures are vintage 70s but most of the units have been remodeled and are owner-occupied year round. You will feel at home at Memorial Woods.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Came to Houston on business but also to visit our son and daughter-in-law who teach at the College of the Mainland. We often stay in condos and homes rather than hotels when we travel. This has been one of the best! The location, attractiveness, and "extras" made this accommodation memorable. The experience of being "iced in" during the cold snap of 2/3/11 could have been horrible. As it was, being in this snug little condo, it was really fun in an odd way. Snow for we Floridians would have been even better but DirecTV, with all the selection, and snacks as well, made the day a positive part of our trip.

We don't know who decorated this little jewel, but it was perfect! I imagine being so close to Ikea was a plus in this result, I am sure! We love Ikea! It's like a playground for those who love home decor.

Thanks for providing such a great space!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for 2 weeks while daughter was attending a summer intensive at Houston ballet. We really enjoyed our stay. Its in a good location. It took us about 15 minutes to get downtown in the morning. Restaurants and grocery stores near by. The condo was very clean. We enjoyed the pool and the neighbors were very friendly. Yvonne always responded quickly if I had a question. We would definitely stay here again.

Everything you could hope for.

This is an older Houston condo in excellent, updated, modern condition - one of the early Memorial area complexes sandwiched 1 block either way to I-10 or Memorial Drive - and from a business traveler's perspective, it's everything you need. If you do stay here - and if you don't know Houston's history, be SURE to take a walk through the Memorial neighborhood 2 blocks away. The 2 acre yards, the towering pine trees, the giant spreading live oaks, the peacocks overhead and the incredible diversity of architecture. These are among the most interesting homes you'll ever see.

Yvonne's property was exactly what my family needed for our long stay in Houston. We loved the pool, the neighbors were very friendly, and we always felt safe. It was the perfect location for us and was close to everything we needed. Yvonne was the perfect host and took care of all of our needs. Should we ever find ourselves returning to Houston I would definitely want to stay here again.

Neat, clean, and charming.

  • 4 of 5

We came to town to visit our adult kids, so we didn't spend a lot of time in the condo, but it was a nice, clean, well maintained, and comfortable space for us for sleeping and relaxing. Everything was very clear and straight-forward as far as instructions and information was concerned. The location was good, handy to most of Houston, and to our kids :) I spoke with Yvonne on the phone, and she seemed to be a very friendly, nice lady. Good stay!
