              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: Greetings from your hosts, Robin and Bob Cooke. We are both native Houstonians. We love to travel, have stayed on ships, river boats, bed and breakfast and weekend homes both in the states and over seas. We have learned from these experiences the ammenities that make us feel comfortable and pampered. We also love our city and feel very blessed that we have this special space to share with you.

              Why the Owner Chose Houston:
              We love our location because of its close proximity to so many options for your entertainment. Montrose is a residential neighborhood located in the Neartown area of Houston, Texas, USA. Established in 1911, the neighborhood is a demographically diverse area with renovated mansions, bungalows with wide porches, and cottages located along tree-lined boulevards. Montrose is one of the more pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in Houston. We are an easy drive or Metro Rail ride to downtown tfor the George R Brown, Astros Baseball the theater district; Hobby Center for Broadway shows, Alley Theater,one of the best professional live theaters anywhere, Jones Hall to attend Houston Symphony and Ballet. The Wortham Center for Ballet, Rice University and the University of St. Thomas are about 1/2 mile away. We also love down time to sit and read, enjoy the pool, relax with a glass of wine and would invite you to enjoy this newly constructed home away from home.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The personal attention to details you will experience while with us will have you coming back again and again. If you are arriving late, let me know what food/drink/snacks you would like to have in the pantry/refrigerator. I'll do the shopping for you, leave the receipt and you simply reimburse, plus it will help me to know what you like. You will always find a gift basket of special treats waiting for you. I'm here to assist you with reservations at resturants and things to see and do. Bring your laptop, there is free wi-fi and various websites listed in the Heavely Loft Guest House Notebook that will help you discover new and wonderful things to do while you are here.
