Montgomery condo description

Conroe is just the right blend of starry nights and city lights. And similarly, this condo can provide a family-friendly, fun and activity-filled vacation or a romantic and relaxing getaway. We are a corner unit steps from all the Country Club amenities
The downstairs is an open floor plan with a two story-high ceiling living room that has a big comfortable overstuffed sectional couch. The kitchen, dining room area that seats 4 and bar that seats 5 all look out onto the two story wall of windows with full Lake views.

The kitchen is fully equipped and functional with new stainless steel appliances, utensils, silverware, pots and pans and place settings that you could need. A limited amount of paper supplies (paper towels, napkins and toilet paper) are provided.

The patio has a cozy two-person swing and a picnic table so no matter what mood you're in, you can sit outside and breathe in the water view. A charcoal grill is also available on the patio in case you catch some fish on the lake! Due to a recent fire in the area, you can only use the grill at least 10 feet from the building. We have a small grill that is easily moved.

The Master Bedroom is on the first level. It includes a King Size Tempurpedic mattress with luxury linens and anti-allergenic mattress covers and pillows. It includes a walk-in closet and full bathroom with thick bath towels and beach towels.

Upstairs there are two rooms. One bedroom has two Queen size beds, walk-in closet and full bathroom with linens included. The second room is a 'family room' with two fold out couches (Full and Queen Size) and a Queen size Futon couch (extra linens are included for this room). This room has board games, DVDs, CDs, chess, checkers, Dart Board and all sorts of games. This 'family room' has a large window with amazing view of the clubhouse, pool and Lake Conroe. All rooms have a TV with either Apple TV, Suddenlink cable and/or DVD.

The Condo has two parking spaces assigned and a gate with 24 hour security guards at the entrance to ensure safety and privacy. The property provides many amenities including:

-state of the art gym
-five pools (including a kids' pool and an adult pool). Pools are closed on Mondays.
-golf and pro shop, twilight golf
-indoor and outdoor tennis
-Snack bar, bar, and a restaurant, including a fabulous Sunday Brunch.

Since we are located so close to the Clubhouse, you will be a short walk or golf cart ride away from all the amenities.

For Holiday weekends, the property celebrates 'Texas style' which is synonymous for BIG--Golf cart parade with prizes for best decorations, DJs at the pool, Evening Under the Stars themed parties, watermelon and pie eating contests, and much more. If you are looking for activities for the little ones, tennis and golf lessons are available and during peak/holiday weeks many creative and fun activities.

Within a few miles of the condo is the Waterpoint Marina where you can rent a boat for a few hours or the week and dock it right in front of the condo. Wonderful restaurants that overlook the lake are all around the Condo--most popular are Ransoms Steakhouse for a nice dinner, and the Magnolia Diner for a wonderful breakfast or lunch. Must see at Lake Conroe are Papa's on the Lake and Wolfie's Sports Bar both of which have amazing Lake Views.
For those that are not familiar with the area, it is 20 miles from Houston, Texas. Nestled in the lush Piney Woods of East Texas, Conroe embraces you with genuine Texas friendly hospitality. It has small town appeal and big city attractions just an hour away. If you are celebrating a special occasion, please let us know prior to arrival. No loud parties please. April Sound is a family environment.

                  Our Condominium is in the April Sound Country Club. Established in 1972, April Sound Country Club is located just north of Houston, 20 minutes from The Woodlands on the sparkling shores of Lake Conroe.

                  -Spectacular new clubhouse overlooking Lake Conroe.

                  -27 holes of golf – with nine holes geared to families, beginner and youth golfers.

                  -Short game practice area and aquatic driving range.

                  -Expansive pool complex with four pools, hot tub and poolside cabana.

                  -12 tennis courts – four covered.

                  -Two levels of patio with outdoor bar service, and the largest fire pit in the greater Houston area

                  -State-of-the-art fitness center.

                  -Tons of activities and events throughout the year.

                  Our Condo is on the water across from the Clubhouse and Pool. If you have a boat or a jet ski, you can dock it on our pier with a special permit for 48 hours which we secure for you in advance--make sure you check the water levels (http://conroe.uslakes.info/Level.asp). And if you prefer to rent, we recommend renting a boat from Waterpoint Marina to explore Lake Conroe (http://waterpointmarina.com).

                  There are lots of great restaurants with live music and the Holidays are celebrated at the Country Club 'Texas' style...BIG! April Sound is a place to relax, enjoy the sun, the lake and all the outdoor activities the club provides.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We are a family with five kids ranging in age from 10 to 24 years old. We take advantage of the condo as much as we can but between soccer, lacrosse, volleyball and cross country it's hard to find a weekend to enjoy wonderful Lake Conroe.

                  Why the Owner Chose Montgomery:
                  We loved this property because it is right on the water and walking distance to the clubhouse/pool.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  There are lots of vacation rentals available but we believe this condo feels like a 'home'. The patio is wonderful because you can sit and relax, watch the sunset, or take a nap on the swing. Being able to dock right at the pier steps from your door is a unique benefit as is the fact that you can fish right off the same dock! In order to give locals the most out of their weekend escapes, let us know if you want an early check in or late check out and if we can accommodate, we will.
