About Pam Merkin

David and Pam bought this townhome for their oldest son in 2001 when he was a sophmore at Texas A&M. Their second son also lived here while going to Texas A&M. They have a daughter who is also attending Texas A&M and she lives in another of the townhomes that they own in the same complex. They bought a third townhome March 2016 next door to this one and have it listed on verb also. They have decided to share this townhome with out of town visitors to Texas A&M for home football games, graduation, Parent's weekend or college visits. We allow pets since we don't travel without our little 'Angel' our Yorkie and know how hard it is to find a place that allows special family members.

Pam Merkin purchased this townhome in 2001

Great property for our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The Duck Pond house was a great place for our weeklong stay in Aggieland. Our family of six had plenty of room to spread out and we had every amenity of home. The only reasons I did not give it five stars is because the hot water was intermittent at times (sometimes taking 15-20 minutes to get to the master shower) and the beds were noisy. But, those were small inconveniences for the spaciousness of the property.

Owner's Response: You have to turn the shower water all the way to hot and let it get extra hot then adjust. I will have a plumber look at the shower asap. Thanks for the heads up.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the "Home away from home" to attend a funeral in a nearby location. A last minute reservation resulted in the condo being completely prepared down to the last detail. Very clean and comfortable layout with great personal touches. Will definitely stay there again when attending Aggie football games and other A&M events.

Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We all gathered at College Station for my niece's graduation from Texas A & M. We had a wonderful experience...being from Denver but still Longhorn fans, the Aggie stuff was a bit overwhelming but what do you expect when you are in Aggieland! It was well stocked and had all of the comforts of being at home. Thank you for an amazing stay for a joyous occasion!

Owner's Response: We are a little over the top with Aggie decor, but what can I say except "Gig em Aggies."

Great place to stay!

We came to College Station for the Christmas lights at Santa's Wonderland. The house was clean and had all the amenities we needed for two couples and their kids.
