About Kathleen

I an working professional that does a lot of traveling for work and offers out my place while I'm away from home. When in town I like going out to different museum exhibitions and the occasional night out on the town or just staying in to watch a movie at home.

Kathleen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kathleen chose Houston

I love this location in Houston. Being here was paramount when I choose to look for a place and after a lot of searching found a great mix between the location, friendliness of staff and amenities. For me I visit often visit the different Museum exhibits nearby as well as going to Hermann Park - I often use the jogging trails there and at Rice U. While for those rainy Houston days the full size gym is great.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Luca met us to give us a tour and the keys. It was nice to get a quick overview as we arrived. The neighborhood was perfect! The park across the street is great for running. We were within a mile of the hospital that we needed to visit. They had a shuttle that left on a fixed schedule, which was nice. Many times we walked back from our appointment, through the park. :)

What David loved about your listing:

The location was great. The condo facilities were very nice. We enjoyed our stay. :)

The apartment is centrally located within Houston proper and allows you to fully explore the city.

Hermann Park is directly across the street, offering a wide array of activities. Starting with the Herman Park Golf Course directly across the street which offers both a driving range and a 18-hole course, the Houston Zoo, as well as many jogging and walking trails to a small tourist train and paddle boating on the lake. And during the theater season, the outdoor theater provides free and low cost artistic performances for all tastes. Surrounding the park is the Medical Center to the South, Rice University to the West and the Museum District to the North. The Museum of Natural History is located with in the park and the Houston Museum of Fine Art is only a block away.

The Museum District offers many great museums to explore from the small to the large and many offer interesting exhibits and events.

Midtown is only 10 mins away by car and is a popular up-coming area offering many great new bars and restaurants. For other great popular restaurants try Rice Village near the university that offers both great shopping and dining venues.

We are also right at an exit for Route 288 which leads you to downtown for all major sporting events only 10-15 mins away or quick access to the shopping mecca at the Galleria about 25 mins away.

Great Summer stay

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for three months on a summer internship in Houston. I would definitely recommend the location for proximity to activities, museums, the zoo, and Hermann Park. It was only a 10 minute drive from the downtown/midtown area which was perfect for commuting to work. I appreciated having a place to stay where I didn't have to worry about bringing linens and pots and pans. The unit was very well kept and had everything my roommate and I needed. The only complaints that I have are about the wind on the balcony and pool area and that the door to the parking garage would sometimes be broken.

Owner's Response: Hello Madeline, Thank you so much for staying at our apartment. You were wonderful guests and we would welcome you back anytime. I am happy you enjoyed the easy access of the location and apartment features. Also I am happy to report that the building has fully replaced the garage gate so no more issues. Thanks, Kat

Family visit

  • 3 of 5

This property is in a great location for visiting museums, zoo, golf and Hermann Park.

The facilities such as the pool and gym are very nice, very clean and enjoyable.

The condo is large, located on a high floor in a high rise building. The hallways and elevator and lobby areas are ery clean and there is very little noise from occupants.

There is a great view of the medical district, the balcony is small and often quite windy. When the door is open you can hear constant city traffic which for us was okay. I would not recommend this location if you had small children. The condo furnishing is average. The owner needs to pay more attention to some of the details of renting such as cleanliness, and linen quality and quantity. You pay a cleaning fee,but it did not appear that this condo was professionally cleaned. That is something I would confirm before renting.

Owners were readily available by email. I would give the overall facility a very good in terms of facility cleanliness and location. The condo rating is just average and somewhat disappointing overall.
