As an architectural history buff, I enjoy visiting locations which maintain their historic cultural buildings. I have been in property management & investment for many years in the Montrose area. All of my rental properties are historic buildings located in historic neighborhoods. An avid traveler, having traveled throughout the world.
Tim Womble purchased this apartment in 1995
I purchased this property for several reasons. It is a historic home, One of my passions are historic homes, in the style of a Dutch Colonial with Craftsman influences. I also own the next two historic houses to the west of this house.
One of my favorite repeat guest is a Grammy award winning singer and she tells me that she enjoys staying here for several reasons:
1. Close to downtown's Theater District
2. Much warmer and more comfortable than a luxury hotels that she usually stays in
3. The convenience is excellent, park your car in the garage just a few feet from your private exterior entrance, no elevators, long corridors, parking garage that take too much time to enter and exit
Tim made us feel very welcome at the house like we were at our own house, communication between us and him was super easy. We were there for twelve days, we had to ask for favors while we were there and Tim was nothing but accommodation. This is a wonderful house, very comfortable, in a great neighborhood in Montrose / Midtown area. We recommend this house is a great place to stay. We will definitely be staying there again when we go back to Houston.
This rental is great. We stayed six nights in November (a good month to visit Houston), and were very comfortable. The place is an old house, probably historic, that has been restored or preserved. It is good for a couple or a family with one or two children. We are familiar with this area of Houston, and the place could not be more convenient. It is easy walking distance to Westheimer street and several restaurants. The bed was extremely comfortable, something I greatly appreciate. The kitchen was fine, the laundry worked, the AC worked great, there is cable TV with HBO, there were plenty of towels. I would like to mention that guest parking is a problem, street parking in front of the house is by permit only after 5, so if you have visitors or a second car, this could be an inconvenience. We would stay here again, and probably will. 4 and a half stars.
The locations is great...quiet, yet close to lots of local restaurants. It was also nice to have off-street parking in a covered area. Everything was well lighted outside so we had no problem accessing at night. The location had easy access to major highways. The apartment was spacious; loved all the antiques! Accommodations were all very comfortable....but---we need more light in the bathroom!! We managed, but it could be more difficult in the winter to shave or put on make-up. Over-all...we would stay again! Thank you!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 11 day stay in mid July at this well maintained separate ground floor unit, part of a beautiful older home in the Montrose area. Great neighborhood--good restaurants within easy walking distance should you wish, nearby shopping, groceries, clubs, etc. It is a hot time of year in Houston, but the AC was new and did the job handily. Furnishings, mattress, decor were all attractive and/or of good quality and the layout/amount of space was incredible. The toilet alcove has a low ceiling so, if you are tall, you will have to watch your head to access. Our host, Tim, was easy to reach and responsive. Thanks, Tim, for arranging for us to extend our stay on short notice. Would be glad to stay again if it is available on a return trip.
Tim was quick to respond and the property was in a great location and was quite nice. We stayed the week of New Years. There was construction going on the two floors above us and the fumes down below were quite strong. We told Tim and he had the workers discontinue that part of the work until after we left. There was plenty of room and there was a nice strong internet connection so that my boyfriend could work while we were there. The location is magnificent. It's walking distance to many great restaurants on Westheimer. We did have an issue come up when we were there that tarnished the experience. The driveway leading to the back where the carport is is quite narrow and it isn't straight. Because of this we nicked the neighbors landscape edging as we slowly traversed the drive out and Tim felt a landscaper needed to be called to repair. It was slight enough that I thought we could fix it ourselves but Tim felt the neighbor wouldn't want us doing that. He thought the repair would probably cost about $150. Later, we knocked on the neighbors door and apologized and the neighbor said he appreciated the face to face apology and after looking at it didn't think anything needed to be done. It felt like Tim was trying to get us to pay for something that must occur on a regular basis. I really didn't understand the angst over something so seemingly insignificant. Other than that, the stay was quite nice and I would recommend the property to others. Just watch that driveway.
Absolutely loved the apartment. Could have moved right in. Location was excellent for the reasons we were there. Nice to be able to have ability to cook and do laundry while there for an extended visit. Would highly recommend!
The Apt was in a convenient location by car to where we wanted to me. We did have a little bit of a scare with some larvae/carpenter ants that were on the bathroom when we got in. Tim explained they'd recently had an exterminator come out & he came and cleaned it right up. A ton of restaurants near by. Wifi worked great. Overall a good stay.
This apartment is located in one of the few walkable neighborhoods in Houston. It is a Historic neighborhood, the house the apartment is in was built in 1912 by a predominate home builder of the day for the Hutchins family that owned an oil business in Houston. There are over 40 restaurants within 6 blocks of the apt, from great "hole in the wall diners" to fine dining. Downtown is less than 2 miles away.
