Nestled in a small vintage 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 2010, 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 who need a quiet, temporary, fully-functional home in a compact package.
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 (full disclosure: 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. All new surfaces, fixtures and furnishings here. And our housekeeper is THE BEST.
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) 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 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, Stop #4)

My husband and I were in Houston for a month to visit our son's family. The condo was as pretty and clean as the pictures shown on VBRO. The little patio out back was much enjoyed during the nice spring weather of April. The internet service for our Macs was secure and speedy. We were close to the Galleria, our favorite - Memorial City Mall, Memorial Park, the Heights, Brenner's on the Bayou for happy hour, Fuzzy's Pizza at Antoine and I-10. I just hope it is available the next time we are in Houston because we will definitely want to stay here. We, temporary renters, were graciously welcomed by some of the full time neighbors - especially Cathy, Dave, and Steven.

Came from England (UK) and stayed at this Condo between 9th of August to 23rd of August 2012 for my cousin’s wedding. The rooms are interlinked but this is not a problem. The condo is cosy and close to everything we needed (as described it is about 5 mins to the Galleria, 30-35 mins to Katy Mills and several outlet’s. Only problem was access to the internet on the first 2 days and this was dealt with quickly (guess the problem was my MAC connection). If need be I will stay here again. Price is reasonable and better than wasting money on those overpriced hotels in town. Wal-Mart is about 2 minutes while Kroger is about 2-3 minutes away.

The Fairley's condo worked well for our purposes. Our business takes us to many different cities and, as a consequence, we see many different sorts of accommodations. This condo was among the most comfortable I've experienced. The condo is well kept and well appointed and very welcoming at the end of each long day. The owners are clearly interested in pleasing their guests and making their stay as comfortable as possible.

Very Comfortable Condo in Heart of Memorial Park Area!
Very Comfortable Condo in Heart of Memorial Park Area!
We had just enough room at this condo with 3 adults and 2 small children. This condo is conveniently located next to the Memorial neighborhood in Houston, Memorial Park, and just north of the Galleria area with easy access to I-10 & 610. This is the perfect rental to serve as a drop-in location for your visit to Houston with plenty of dishes, fresh towels, comfortable beds, and DirectTV programming. The only thing we missed was not having a bathtub with two 2 yr olds. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay!

Owner response: Jackie we enjoyed having you and your family. Your words are very gracious. We agree with you; the shower is just not the same as having kids splashing in a tub. Please visit us again. Wayne

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! Keith and Lynne S, Niceville Florida (across the Bay from Destin, FL)

Owner response: Dr. Dave, thanks for choosing our place. We appreciate your kind words. We are looking forward to booking your place in California some day. Wayne
Our stay at this condo was more than pleasant. It is fully outfitted, clean and immaculately maintained. Tasteful and creative decorations add delightful touches to the ambiance. We were continually surprised and delighted with the details that made staying here so home-like and welcoming. Its location is convenient to all travel directions in Houston. The owners were supportive during the rental process and attentive throughout our stay. Highly recommended! - but please do not book it during the weeks we want to come back ;)

"We loved staying at the Fairley Condo in Memorial Woods. It is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and in a wonderful neighborhood. From the linens to the beds, the furnishings, flat screen TV and the granite counters were so nice we felt right at home. The owner was available when we had questions and very accommodating to our needs. If I could rate this condo on a scale of 1-10, it would be an 11!!!! When we return to Houston, this will be our home away from home." – Jen, Phoenix, AZ

Three busy businesswomen shared this condo to have space to spread out and avoid the downtown hotel scene--it vastly exceeded our expectations in every way! Everything described in the owner's comments is accurate—lovely, quiet, safe and convenient neighborhood, newly (and quite luxuriously) remodeled and spacious first-floor condo, well-equipped in every way, and very ‘cozy’ and comfortable. It was a great pleasure on some evenings during our busy week to just come “home” and have soup and salad instead of going to another restaurant! This condo is a perfect cross between a luxury downtown suite and ‘home sweet home’…”wonderful” is the operative word!

About the owner: This property is owned and managed by three generations of Fairleys. Granddaughter Jess and Grandmom Yvonne pictured. We all love to explore the world and experience all God's creations. We've been guests at VRBO properties in several states and in Brasil. We hope to visit many many more.
Why the Owner Chose Houston:
We needed a Houston property for family purposes. We selected this property specifically because of the awesome location, just-right size and parking which enables easy coming and going for guests, friends and family. The city is very friendly and vibrant and this property enables us to share all Houston has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
As peaceful as a country cabin, as functional as home, but just a few minutes from anything and everything via quick freeway access or Memorial Drive. We really enjoy the wrap-around patio; it feels like there's a small private yard in which to connect with the outdoors. The new interior and furnishings enable us to keep it real clean and fresh.
