About Deborah Caballero
We are both professionals and have lived in Houston for almost 20 years. We love to travel, but we find comfort in returning to the peace and quiet of our home. We enjoy having dinner parties with friends, walking, reading, undertaking different projects around the house, meeting new people.
Deborah Caballero purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Deborah Caballero chose Montrose
We fell in love with this duplex when we first visited it. We loved the light, the windows and the size and layout were perfect for us. Anton personally did most of the complete remodeling that we undertook while we lived in the upstairs apartment. It was a labor of love! We knew we wanted to live in an older home and preserve some bit of history in Houston. Van Buren is a calm street amid an increasingly bustling neighborhood. Most everything is within walking distance. We still live upstairs, but have lived in both units and love each for their own unique characteristics.
What makes this Apartment unique
The aspects we love most about the downstairs unit that is available for booking are: --high ceilings --spacious kitchen/breakfast nook --easy first-floor access --two bathrooms (one with tub and the other with shower) --view of backyard
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We came to View Houston art. This property is perfectly suited for galleries and art museums. Couldn’t be better!
Lovely owners, on site and nonobtrusive.... just there to make sure everything is right.
And the kitchen had everything we needed. We were impressed with the way it was outfitted. Not your usual 4 wine glasses and 4 plates.
A great week of Houston art and a great stay.
Our time at Refuge in Montrose was spent relaxing with our family and enjoying the city of Houston. Deborah and Anton were excellent hosts and their clean, quiet and comfortable home was exactly as advertised. The kitchen is very well equipped with all essentials and some extras for guest comfort, the internet service was great and the the wine and cookies were a very nice bonus! Street parking was not a problem directly in front of the rental, which is convenient to many dining options in the area. We look forward to staying here again!
Jerome and Judy,
Thanks for being stellar guests and taking such good care of our place. We truly love sharing our home with people such as you. We enjoyed meeting you and thanks for the coffees!
Please come back soon,
Refuge in Montrose
Absolutely charming from the very minute you arrive the charm envelopes you. You are located right in the middle of everything but on a quiet street nestled in between turn of the century charm. Deborah is a wonderful Host and very thoughtful we had fresh cut flowers waiting when we arrived . The home is very spacious and comfortable. I will definitely return again and reccomend to everyone.
Glenn, Thank you so much for booking our place. We were so touched by your story from the beginning and were happy to meet you all. We hope the weekend was all it was planned to be and we congratulate you on your graciousness and planning. We hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful accommodations and wonderful hosts!
The unit was perfect for our stay in Houston, but just as special are the owners, Deborah and Anton. They truly characterize the definition of gracious and accomodating hosts! The unit is spectacularly clean most important, but once settled in the comfortable ambiance and quietness of the unit was so appreciated. It's spacious with the two bedrooms and two baths which was allowed both my wife and I to have separate baths for getting ready when going out to dinner which is always nice when traveling.
We feel blessed that we chose this home vs. other apartments and condos we considered and I'm sure you will feel the same should you also choose the 'Refuge in Montrose'.
We were so happy to host you, Bill and Joan. We are thrilled that you were comfortable and at home. It is so important to us. Thank you for your kind words and for the care you took of the apartment. Much appreciated!
Lovely home and very nice owners!
My family really enjoyed our stay at the "Refuge on Montrose". Our rental was clean and bright and Deborah made sure our entire stay was very comfortable. I highly recommend The Refuge!
We are so glad you enjoyed your weekend here, Janis. Thanks for choosing the Refuge for your family get-together. Anton and I were glad to meet you all.
You left the place so tidy and cared for. Please come again!
Clean, beautiful relaxing propery
Our family of four stayed at the house for six days in August. We had a wonderful stay. The house was clean, had an interesting layout and was well decorated. Great natural light. The beds are comfortable. It is a calm and relaxing place. The house is true to the photos on VRBO. It is as lovely as it looks. The master bedroom has a wonderful sitting room. The house has a gorgeous, unique courtyard with a massive pecan tree, goldfish pond, and moss covered brick. The owners are very responsive. We would stay there again.
Thank you for your kind words about the property and for choosing to stay at our place for your visit to Houston, David. We were glad to meet you and are warmed that you enjoyed the apartment. We appreciate you leaving it so tidy and for being such gracious guests. We hope to see you back in Houston soon.
