About Lisa Thompson

My name is Lisa Thompson. That's me and my boyfriend, Avi in the picture. I'm a realtor, a lawyer, I own/operate a bed & breakfast in Montrose, I work for United Airlines, I manage properties for myself as well as for clients. In short, I'm a workaholic. That doesn't mean I don't know how to have a great time. I love to run with my running club, Bayou City Road Runners and regularly host a charity yard sale for BCRR out of one of my garages. I love trivia night at The Harp, beer at Valhalla on the Rice University Campus and bingo in the heights. If you're not sure what to do while you're in Houston just ask me, I'm sure to have a suggestion for any personality type.

Lisa Thompson purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Lisa Thompson chose Houston

This biggest draw for this property is its close proximity to MD Anderson. It's an 11 minute walk from door to door for an average walker. If the walk won't work for you try Uber, it's cheaper than parking at the hospital and a LOT more convenient. I love that when you set up your cab on Uber you can see how many minutes until it arrives. If you've never used Uber before download the app with your smartphone and enter code Y55VD or E5YX3 in the promotions tab before your first ride to get up to a $20 discount. We offer two assigned garage parking spaces (numbers 12 and 13) with no parking fee. I get asked this a lot; unfortunately there is no shuttle to/from MD Anderson at this property.

What makes this apartment unique

Less than 3 miles from MD Anderson, Texas Medical Center, Rice University (my alma mater), Museum District, Houston, Zoo, Downtown. Basically all of Houston is at your door when you stay here.

No refund of deposite!!!

  • 1 of 5

I was charged a deposit that was not refunded. Would not stay here again. They are supposed to refund this within 14 days. When I contacted HomeAway who actually charged my credit card they told me they could do nothing, and to "have a nice day". I will not use VRBO again anytime soon.

Close to MD Anderson & Medical Center

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in early May for my husband's treatment at MD Anderson because it is a short & convenient ride to the medical center and at a good price. The apartment has convenient parking under the building. The building also has an elevator. It was very hot in the apartment when we arrived but fortunately we were able to get it cooled down by the time we returned from dinner. The master bedroom has an arched window without any covering over the arch portion which lets light in all night and early mornings. Also, in the afternoons that room and living room gets a lot of heat from the sun. The beds were ok, I guess, but neither one of us slept well. The kitchen was fine but we didn't cook any meals while we were there so can't really address that. We didn't find Lisa to be very accessible- we had to call her on the day of our arrival for the check in procedure and she seemed overwhelmed but got us our information quickly. Overall I don't think we'll stay there again.

apartment is clean, spacious and well located. But lack of customer service.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment itself was great. Clean and spacious, with a little balcony and a lovely view. Conveniently located. Underground garage parking and elevator made things very easy, especially for my old father. However there were a few things that really dampened the experience. The kitchen cookware is not usable. The pots and pans are so old, they have multiple deep scratches and worn surfaces.. the handle of the frying pan kept coming off! It defeats the purpose of renting an apt Vs getting a hotel. We had to spend more money to eat out because we couldn't cook at home. There's also something odd with the tv cable box - sometimes it wouldn't work at all. It may need to be replaced. The worst part was... anytime I wanted to message or text the owner, or had a question, I never got a response! Forget not having your issues dealt with, I was being totally ignored! That is why I lowered the rating to 3 stars. That sort of customer service is really unacceptable.

close to medical center, private

  • 5 of 5

The condo was as described. Private garage parking, close to the medical center, quiet at night. It is in the flight approach pattern for Hobby airport so there is some plane noise but that is part of being in that area I presume. Overall good experience and I would stay there again.

Well euipped, very clean, beautifully decorated, very well protected and felt safe.

  • 5 of 5

Only suggestion might be to have TV in bedrooms. And, providing brochures to transportation sytem, theaters, and other entertainment venues. Internet is not easy to find all possibilities in one place. Proximity to area attractions and close to medical facilities. Think will request the unit on future medical visits.

Very convenient pleasant place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very easy to get to, parking arrangements were good, and it was easy to get to museums and other attractions. The apartment was comfortable and clean, with adequate kitchen supplies.
