  • OK STAY

    3/5

    FOR SUCH A NICE HOME AND THE AMOUNT OF MONEY CHARGED WE FOUND THE KITCHEN TO BE LACKING IN ANY DECENT POTS, PANS AND BOWLS AND DISHES. IT WAS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO COOK A MEAL FOR OUR FAMILY. THIS HOME SEEMS MORE SUITED TO COUPLES WHO MIGHT VISIT THE AREA AND EAT OUT.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Johnny, we followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following: Our goal is ensure that our guests have an exceptional stay with us.
    - We recognize the importance of ensuring all of our amenities are in guest ready and we sincerely apologize for any lack of kitchen essentials during your stay. We inspected the inventory of the supplies for the kitchen and confirmed that the cookware available for guest use was in excellent condition. Guests can rest assured that we have increased the dishware to accommodate a setting of eight and supplied the home with additional cookware.
    - Communication is important to us and we maintain consistent availability. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns so we have the opportunity to address them immediately.
    Thanks for your valuable feedback as we continue to improve for future guests!

  • Perfect rental

    5/5

    We rented all four of these units. This unit is the second of the main floor units. My mother in law stayed in this unit and it was perfect. The unit was quiet and beautifully maintained. I cannot say enough about the beds and bedding. These may be the most comfortable beds any of us have ever slept in!!

  • Great Katy Trail home

    5/5

    We love this property and will definitely return to it. It is one block off of Katy Trail and easy walking distance to several restaurants and wineries. Everything worked well and was in perfect condition!
