This newly remodeled condominium is located in the Galleria Area and comes with a fireplace, washer and dryer, access to a beautiful swimming pool and a reserved parking space in the garage. All inside a gated community. Chimney Rock and San Felipe.
Very desirable location (Houston's Uptown area). Just a few minutes from the Galleria; Houston's premier shopping mall.
Guests will have all the amenities of a fully furnished condominium with a nice central location and very close to Memorial Park.
Interaction with Guests
We will respect our guest's privacy and will not be on the property but if there is an issue we will just be a text, email or phone call away.
This neighborhood in Uptown Houston has everything you need within a few minutes drive or walk. It's located within a few miles of three major freeways. If you want to catch a movie there's the Edward Cinema Marg'E, if you need groceries, Whole Foods is a short stroll away and of course if your looking for upscale shopping as well as chain stores there's the Galleria.
Houston is not known for its public transportation however there is the Metro bus system that has several stops in the area (website hidden). There are several bike routes and also many shops are within walking distance.
Other Things to Note
This is a downstairs unit with a private patio. The entire interior was recently remodeled and is approximately 1000 square feet.
Check out time is noon when there are guests arriving that day.
Chris's place is in a great part of town. The Galleria, Westheimer, Montrose, and Museum District are all within 10-15 minutes on fast routes, which makes driving easy and catching an Uber super cheap. The community is gated and feels very secure. The unit has a small deck outside in the fenced courtyard, which was great. Chris himself provides an awesome, thorough check-in manual with great directions and instructions for the apartment, and is super communicative and accommodating. Our flight was delayed by a few hours and he let us remain at the apartment past check-out so we wouldn't have to worry about keeping our bags stashed in the car while killing time around town. I can't praise him enough as a host, or compliment him enough on such a lovely apartment.
However, there are a couple of things to be aware of: One of the neighbors apparently has a habit of blaring his TV 24/7. Chris says he has had complaints before, and while most nights it was possible to drown out by putting on our own music/Netflix to fall asleep to, it did get annoying in the early morning and on our last night it got so loud around 4AM we went to ask him to turn it down (Chris was out of town). The neighbor either couldn't hear us or just didn't answer.
Second, and this might only apply to guests with a second car or one that doesn't fit in the apartment's assigned parking, as of March 16 the guest parking level ramp is under construction. We weren't informed, but fortunately the construction crew unblocked the non-torn up side of the ramp for us so our car wouldn't be stranded. This turned out to be an easy fix, but make sure to check with Chris on the parking status if you're bringing a second car.
The pros still largely outweigh the minuses here, but if you're a light sleeper be prepared to either pack some earplugs in case of the neighbor or lose a good amount of sleep.
We enjoyed our stay at Chris' condo. The location couldn't have been better. The condo is spacious. When our granddaughters spent the night there was plenty of room for a sleeping bag on either side of the comfortable bed. The linen closet in the bathroom was big enough to hold our suitcases. The patio was a lovely place to read and a fine place for our dog to sun herself. The kitchen is well-equipped. Chris responded to our inquiries in a very timely fashion. We hope there will be a return trip.
Great neighborhood in Houston, very clean apartment and everything was as described. Chris was very prompt in helping figure out the heating- haha. Parking was very convenient. The apartment was very comfortable and very large for a 1 BR unit. I will come back to rent Chris' place again in March. Check in was very easy, with clear directions from Chris, and wifi set-up was easy. Thanks, Chris.
This was my second stay at Chris' place. And there will most likely be more in the coming months... so it speaks for itself.
Chris is always pleasant and quickly responds for last minute requests. The apartment itself is beautiful and very spacious as well as private. I would definitely recommend this apartment plus the location is ideal.
We enjoyed our stay at Chris' home. Comfortable apartment, and perfectly located for visiting our family!
Great place AAA . Like the last time...nothing to complain, thank' s for having me. Till next year.
