Ideally located

  • 5 of 5

This well equipped, large, upscale apartment was only 2 blocks from our son's house. It had everything we needed and

a quick shop market nearby. Safe neighborhood and close to museums and highways. We loved it! Especially the portrait

of the lady in the bathroom. Come see it for yourself...

Attentive and Responsive

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we were quite happy with Tim's place. First impression wasn't great because we arrived in the middle of the night to an apartment that had not been prepped, but that was very quickly remedied the next day. Tim and Philip went above and beyond to make amends for that.

We had guests over for dinner one night, and the spacious living/dining area made for a comfortable fit for more than 10 people.

The beds were comfy, everything pictured in the kitchen photos were available and the washer/dryer worked as expected.

Wi-Fi was sometimes spotty, both wireless and wired ISP. However, we were able to do what needed to be done (VPN, etc).

Many thanks to Tim and Philip for making our stay in Houston comfortable and enjoyable.

The apartment was perfect for what we needed. Tim and Alberto both went beyond what was necessary to try to get the washing machine in the apartment working while we were there. When they couldn't get it, they even gave us quarters since we didn't have any for the washing machine across the hall. Very appreciated would stay here again or refer friend in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for 5 nights. The apartment is very well maintained and well laid out. It is in a great area and we enjoyed the local pubs and restaurants. It is a couple blocks from the metro rail which was really handy. At night it was very quiet. The secure parking is also a great bonus. I would definitely stay here again when in Houston.
