About Van Arnold

I was born and raised in this neighborhood as were my parents. We love the country feeling of the neighborhood and the privacy that this block offers. My grandparents bought this block in 1954 as well as building the home where my parents and I grew up . Now, 60 years later I own the block and live here. After spending many years traveling the world I have found that there is no place like home.

Van Arnold purchased this house in 2010

Why Van Arnold chose Houston

We love the area because of the proximity to many of Houston most popular destinations. You will rarely encounter traffic coming and going from the neighborhood because of the near by freeways and Main street. On the other hand this home is in a slow pace neighborhood with lots of peace and quiet. Shopping at The Meyerland Mall or The Galleria are only a few minutes away. Reliant stadium, The Texas Medical center and the Houston Zoo are also very close.

What makes this house unique

For those who are new to town the home offers privacy and security with the private gate and management who lives on the block. This home is modern, updated and sanitized for every new tenant. The large yard and huge trees offer the feeling of being in a park. The large patio offers a great place to enjoy the outdoors with your family. The home is turnkey ready to live in. We are happy to assist all tenants in getting moved in and situated to the area.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were residents of this property for close to six months. Safe, secure and quite close to medical center area. Located on a fenced in and gated property. Only 5 minutes from MD ANDERSON. A very comfortable house with many amenities and will sleep 6 easily. Internet wifi and cable tv with washer and dryer too. Very comfortable for, with no stairs, for individuals receiving treatment or recuperating from treatment. The owners are living on the property and are responsive to your needs and inquiries. A GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

Gerstone Properties - MD Anderson Temporary Rentals

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful to have found find this gem of a rental home to be our home away from home for 11 months while my wife was undergoing treatment for breast cancer at the MD Anderson Medical Center. The location was so convenient for quick travel to the MDA Medical Center. It was a blessing to have a beautiful, comfortable, well furnished and thoughtfully equipped home to live in while going through such difficult times. This lovely home met our every need! The neighborhood was safe and so welcoming. We have made friends for life with our next door neighbors. Having this comfortable home away from home, made my wife's recovery from difficult chemotherapy and surgery so much easier to bear. Due to treatment and surgical difficulties, Helen and Van thoughtfully allowed us to extend our lease for an additional 4 months. Any requests or minor household repairs were taken care of conveniently and in a timely fashion. God willing, we will not be needing another extended stay in Houston, but if ever that need arises, we would not hesitate to call Helen and Van at Gerstone Properties!

Close to Medical District

  • 5 of 5

While having an extended stay in Houston, I was so tired of hotels. I searched VRBO and found this jewel. I cannot say enough good things about the Arnold's and their house. The house had everything I needed. The washer and dryer were a bonus! When I needed to extend my time in the house, they were very accommodating. I liked the security gate and knowing that the owners were just a couple of houses away. If in the future it's necessary for me to have another extended stay in Houston, I know where I'll stay with Helen & Van.

Great Location, Close to Medical Center and Galleria (Country in the City!)

  • 5 of 5

While our home was remodeled we needed to move out for a few months and found this beautiful fully furnished home. It had everything we needed and more. The home was super clean and just like the photos - actually better! The owners Van and Helen Arnold are very friendly and live on the block. They will help you 24/7 if you need anything. We loved the private gated home and enjoyed the outdoors allot. We had a rabbit outside in a cage who loved watching birds and squirrels that were running around in the back yard. It’s hard to believe this place is in the city – it makes you feel like you are in a country. Safe, Secure, Quiet and Relaxing!

Thank You for everything.

Gerstone Properties

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home, that is exactly what we found with Gerstone Properties.

My husband and I were fortunate to find such a lovely place to stay after having a fire at our home. We needed a furnished place for several months while our home was being remodeled. The house was fully equipped with everything that you need to start residence, all we needed were groceries and our clothes. I found comfort being surrounded by beautiful tress, and other types of nature during this stressful time. It made me feel like I was there for a deeper reason. The location was great for shopping, freeways, and medical needs. The gated security was excellent also. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a long or short stay. Thank you Helen and Van for being such great Landlords.

relocation to Houston

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to find this house as it was an ideal fit for our needs. The huge yard was completely fenced in for security, privacy and our dogs. The house was very clean and all we had to do was show up with luggage and groceries. We recently relocated to the Houston area and the location of this property made the transition easy! It is conveniently located to major freeways and a very short commute to the medical district. THANKS AGAIN Helen and Van for all you did to make our stay as easy as possible!
