One word sums up my recent long-term stay at Mark's condo: PERFECT!
As a recent transplant to Houston, I needed a place to stay while I searched for a house and during the closing period.
The location of the condo was perfect for me as I work downtown (a mere 10-min car ride) plus it's across the scenic Buffalo Bayou park, where I enjoyed many morning runs, and next to Big Yoga studio. In addition, the Allen Parkway/Waugh location in the Greater River Oaks neighborhood made it convenient to all the hip entertainment hubs of central Houston (River Oaks, Galleria, Upper Kirby, Washington Avenue corridor, The Heights, and Midtown), whether by personal car or Uber. And Whole Foods is just a couple of blocks away!!
The condo complex itself was also perfect: covered parking (with visitor parking permit), well-maintained grounds, 24-hour fitness center and a beautiful pool.
The condo unit was fully furnished from the kitchen to the bedroom, and with basic cable and wifi.
Now to the host, Mark, which I'm leaving for last even though he gets my most glowing review. Mark was everything I expect in a host: easy to communicate with, prompt, responsive, attentive and super reliable. Any issue or question I had he responded to within minutes! I was under a lot of pressure and stress during my stay due to a new job, relocation to a new city, purchasing a house and also a car, and having Mark as a host eliminated one source of stress. I only wished my interactions with others during the relocation process had been that easy and smooth! Thank you, Mark, for being the model host.
In short, if you're in H-Town for business or pleasure, book Mark's condo and don't look any further.
Welcome to Houston!
