          Ideal Manager

          The managers of this property excel in client care and communications. An area-wide power outage occurred during my stay late at night. The apartment was already equipped with adequate emergency lights for use, and Tony promptly contacted the power company and then me for a quick resolution. I appreciated his concern for my comfort and safety. 👍

          5/5 Excellent

            Great for student orientation

            Would rent this again. I was here for orientation week at UTMB. Relatively close to campus. Very close to beach with easy access to many restaurants. Appreciated the sleep number bed, WiFi and television. Adequate kitchen although I only used the refrigerator.

            4/5 Good

              Would stay here again.

              Our visit here was very nice. I loved the location of this property. We were able to walk to most places that we wanted to go. The only flaw with this rental was that the kitchen did not seem the cleanest. The counters were still crumby and all of the dishes that we used, I had to wash beforehand because they were all dirty. Other than that, I would still probably stay here again.
