Amazing stay for travel nurses

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I stayed here for three months while we took a travel nursing assignment in Houston. I am so happy we chose this condo. Jim was so welcoming and was always available if we had any questions. He even took us out to a delicious dinner at a very nice restaurant around town. The location is perfect. Houston heights is a great place and so close to the city, but feels like you are in a suburb. It is only about 1.5 miles to downtown. Also this condo has two covered parking spots which is a great deal. There are beautiful running trails and great restaurants all in walkable distances. Our commute to the Med center never took over 15 minutes and traffic was never much to get anywhere because we were already so close to everything. I would suggest this condo to anyone and we already miss it and can't wait to go back. Thank you for everything Jim!

This unit has everything, including great locale.

  • 5 of 5

This like-new property was bright, clean and modern. Very convenient location near downtown and freeway entrances. Nice to sit on the deck, while there was highway noise there; the unit itself is very quiet. Parking was wonderful. Pool was lovely and by early April was warm enough for swimming when we had a visit from our 3 granddaughters. Kitchen is well-stocked as were bookshelves. Owner was very helpful and responsive to questions. We enjoyed Cafe Brussels, Target, Kaboom Books, and the downtown YMCA. Used the light rail line nearby to reach Rice University. Would certainly recommend this and hope to return.

Vangelis of Houston

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at Jim's place for 1 month and it was such a wonderful experience. The condo gave us this feeling of dynamism and we had everything we needed at our disposal. The location was really good and the views of downtown were amazing in the evening all throughout the night. Very good lighting inside the apartment and well furnished aswell. Also we were expecting the place to be quite noisy but no, not at all! It was really silent and calm. We always felt safe and protected. Jim was always fast to assist us when we had any problems. I definitely would recommend this place, you will not regret it. Whenever I go back to Houston this will be my first place on the list.

Fabulous and Homey

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Jim's place for 6 days in May 2014 and felt instantly at home.

The apartment is beautifully decorated and very well appointed...even with a Jiffy Steamer! The location is perfect with close proximity to all central locations in Houston. We enjoyed the neighbourhood with many pubs and restaurants nearby.

Other than that, Jim has been extremely helpful from the booking process to time of our stay. We look forward to returning during our next visit to Houston.

A Really Cool Place

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in Jim’s condo for over 4 months and so it really became a home for me. It’s in a great neighborhood and has fantastic views of downtown Houston. I felt safe at all times. The other owners were always friendly and helpful. Having lived in Houston for many years I had lots of friends to reconnect with. Everyone visiting me at the condo said it was, “a really cool place.”

Sue from CA

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jim's Houston condo was great. There were four of us, two couples traveling together. The condo was spacious, very clean, well stocked, & comfortable. It would be very helpful to have a car if renting this condo. It's in a good location to get to a lot of different places, plus there's assigned, covered, & secure parking under the building. If we're back in Houston, we would definitely rent this place again. Thanks, Jim!
