Not my idea of zen
Not my idea of zen
The apartment is relatively comfortable and within walking distance of shops and restaurants which is a rarity for Houston. I stayed for just over two months and with-in this time the elevator was out of order on three occasions – not ideal for a 5th floor apartment. The staff at reception were arrogant and unhelpful in most instances. The apartment itself suffers from very poor air ventilation and I often awoke with a sore throat and stuffed up. Also the fabulous view had to be blinded with the blackout curtains to try curtail the Houston summer sun turning the room into a sauna. The noise from the drunken kids at 3am and dogs barking is enough to drive you insane. And to top it all off the owner decides not to return my security deposit even with provision of the mandatory 30 day vacate notice. She also had a habit of turning up at the door at 9:30 in the evening needing to get access to her storage. Not my idea of zen ....

Owner response: I’m sorry to hear of this less than favorable review. There are several other elevators in the building to access the 5th floor without having to take the stairs. I’m not sure about the poor ventilation, when the largest wall in the apartment, consist of 2 sliding doors leading onto the balcony. I have never been witness to any amount of insane noise, whether from drunken kids or barking dogs at 3 am (also, the first, I hear of this from anyone). I asked permission to access the storage unit in the closet on 2 occasions, while I was in Houston, I would hardly call this a habit. (Normally, I live outside the country.) Your security deposit was not returned because you broke your lease and although, you gave 30 days notice, I was not able to find someone to take over your entire lease term. Also, the rent was lowered significantly for the longer-term commitment that was not fulfilled, therefore losing rental income for the couple of months you were there. I hope you found your lesson, in this experience…I know I did. I wish you well on your journey!
Best part of my time in Houston
Best part of my time in Houston
I spent a month and a half at Catalina's apartment while working a contract in Houston, and the apartment was definitely the highlight of my stay. Catalina was very flexible with payment options, so I felt like I got a great deal, too. The location is convenient, right off I-610, with shopping and restaurants nearby. The apartment was clean, with everything (wifi, cable TV, Blu-ray player, laundry machines, dishwasher, etc.) in solid working order. I had to pick up dishwasher soap when I arrived, but I consider this par for the course (and left what I didn't use for the next renters), and there was laundry soap and hand and dish soap. The building is quiet, with a lot of young professionals. One neighbor had a dog, but I only knew because a cat in heat nearby got the dog barking, but only on one night. There is parking in the lower levels of the building, so you won't get wet during Houston's frequent rains. The pictures in the listing accurately reflect the apartment (though there are some ugly rooftops just off the balcony, visible in one picture). The sun in the evening can be spectacular, and the large windows offer great light. I scarfed down more than a few home-made salads and beers sitting on that porch, and I'd absolutely recommend it to anyone else. If I had one caution, it's that, when I was at the apartment, Catalina was out of the country and in an opposite time zone. This didn't pose a problem for me at all, but if you need a lot of help for some reason, you may have to wait for a reply email.

Great Introduction To Houston
Great Introduction To Houston
This space was my corporate housing during the 1st 2 months of my relocation to Houston. The accomidations were exactly as specified. The location in The Galleria area was convenient with shopping, dining, and entertainment all close by. Cable & WiFi worked flawlessly. The property, Uptown Post Oak is high-end with excellent security, gated covered garage and access codes for all entrances. The fitness center beats out most high-end hotels, with all the equipment one might be interested in using. Both the fitness center & pool were always emaculate. The studio has practically new, upper-end appliances in good working condition. The memory foam bed was more comfortable than my personal bed. The view from the fifth (top) floor was breathtaking at times. Overall, my stay at the Zen Studio was excellent. My highest reccomendation.
