Overview

About the property

Chic Cozy Downtown / Medical Center - Professionally Decorated - Sleeps 5

SUMMARY:

Close to art and culture, restaurants and dining, sight seeing & nightlife! You’ll love this condo because of the ambiance, the outdoors space, the light, and the comfy beds. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, big groups (multiple units available), and furry friends (pets).

So, if you are in town for business, medical center or to catch a concert or sporting event, this property is PERFECT!

THE SPACE:

SO excited to introduce this beautiful apartment! It is in a gated complex of 6 units that is dedicated solely to vacation travelers. We poured our heart into its upscale renovation, amenities, luxury furniture and appliances. This is not someone's home, but a space created with you in mind.

Quiet safe GATED community near medical center, downtown, Toyota Center, Dynamo Stadium, Reliant/NRG Stadium, museums, parks, theater district, restaurants and more!

We provide all amenities you will need, new appliances, pots, pans, plates, glasses, utensils, coffee, blenders, toaster, towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, blow dryer, hangers, iron, ironing board and broom.

GUEST ACCESS:

All areas of the property may be accessed by the guests. We use Smartlocks and a code will be issued to you prior to your arrival. Since we change the code prior to each guest, you should only give the code to others staying in the Condo. No need to keep track with keys or worry about someone being locked out.

Parking - We have private parking on our lot attached to the front of the property. Each guest is allocated one parking permit. Any additional cars may be parked on the street at no charge.

Laundry Room - We have a laundry room with new washers and dryers that are free of charge to guests, upon request. We do not provide detergent.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

This is a small cozy group of condos. It is a similar environment to a boutique hotel. We ask that you respect each guests right to quiet enjoyment (unless other arrangements have been made). Although we have properties with families in mind, this is not necessarily one of them. Please send us an inquiry if you would like larger homes with yards, etc for children.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

I love this community!

The Museum District & Medical Center are less than 6 minutes by car: the zoo, science museum, art museum, Herman Park, Miller Outdoor Theater, golf course, Rice University, Reflection Pool, GRB Convention Center, NRG & Toyota Center Stadiums are all minutes away!

All major freeways are less than .25 miles away.

It's honestly in the center of everything.

Midtown is a transition neighborhood but it's safe. You'll see $650,000 condos/town homes next to old houses that are falling apart. Houston also has no zoning laws; It's all mixed. Just around the corner there is a bar with patrons that park sometimes on the street. (lots of high-end cars). There's also random homeless people every now and then; it's a typical big city.

GETTING AROUND:

If you have a car, we have private parking. However, if you don't....This property is a 15 to 20 minute walk to light rail. However, if you don't have a car the Uber is probably best. It is quick and cheap. You can take Uber to the nearby restaurants and attractions. My favorite sushi place is 3 minutes by car. A great Spanish restaurant is 5 minutes by car.

About Melanie Flowers

I am a board certified family law attorney. I love to entertain, cook, travel and enjoy the company of family and friends. I have 4 children and am preparing for retirement. This property belonged to my mother and I recently renovated it. It was remodeled with a great deal of love with the assistance of one of Houston's best urban interior designers.

I had a trade show in Houston and it was at NRG. It was the perfect location and I loved the serenity garden in the courtyard. I will definitely stay here again when I'm back in town!

Only inconvenience (big one in July) was a problem with AC unit. Although it was addressed quickly, owner was somewhat curt and seemed more distressed that she had to bother with a problem than me having one. An apology goes a long way with me.. but there was none. Great locale.

Not the best experience...

  • 1 of 5

I am not one to ever write reviews, especially a negative one but I thought I may want to share this one. The apartment was not that bad, it was very functional aside from sheet rock looking like it is going to fall off the ceiling right above the bed. I contacted the owner to book just a couple days before my trip. I asked questions and at any point prior to my booking she could have told me that the place was going to be worked on. We arrived at night and the next morning the owner and her maintenance guy knocked on the door asking to look in the rooms for attic access. We allowed them to do that and they left and no other words from them. My friend and I were up all night doing volunteer work and got home very late, fully expecting to sleep in. At 2 Am there is all kinds of commotion going on outside and guys banging around out front and the place has very thin walls. At 7AM the walls are literally vibrating, there are roofers scraping the roof to put a new roof on (very loudly). A couple minutes later I get a message from the owner asking me to move my car for the roofers! All before 7:30AM.

Later that morning we get another knock on the door, asking if they could come in and work on the ceiling!What??? With all of our stuff in there? I told them they could not. I then get a message from the owner telling me I needed to let them in. That it was an emergency. I do construction and believe me it was no emergency. I'm sure she just wanted to save some money as they were already there working on the roof. We asked for a refund and was refunded just part of our stay.

This is obviously not going to be a common occurrence but was a bad experience for us. At any point during the day she could have let me know that the place was going to be re-roofed. Or prior to my trip so I could have booked else where. I'm sure if you were to book when there is not construction going it may be a decent stay.

Perfect for Med Center stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one month at this property while my husband had a kidney transplant. Very responsive owner. Great property. 4 minutes from Hermann. We will absolutely rent from this owner, and very likely this same property, again.
