"This condo was truly a home away for me. Very cozy, well furnished, with nice touches in winter decorations. The amenities are great and I didn't feel like anything was missing. I loved the fact that I could bring my own coffee, but also could use the K-cups offered for the morning when I was in a hurry. I really loved the Bath & Body Works soaps and the really nice smell of the condo. There's plenty to do outside in terms of winter activities. But when you get back inside, there's plenty of TV that you can watch, good Internet connection, even a good collection of family games to play. Overall, this was the best accommodation I've found so far in the area and I'll be back for sure. I really want to try during the summer as well, as I didn't get the chance to stargaze due to the clouds."
"This quiet spot is tucked away from the other condos and perfect for a weekend getaway. It’s very close to Downtown Bellaire and I definitely recommend visiting Shorts! Such a quaint, cozy stay with a comfortable bed and great bathroom. Loved it!"
"We Loved Loved Loved our stay at this condo. It's was exceptionally clean, well decorated and had all the extras that really made it feel like home. The condo was truly outfitted with everything you would need and the host spared no expense on all the little extras, like super soft sheets and high quality plush towels in the bathroom. The bed was beyond comfortable, the resort amenities (indoor pool & spa, BBQ and fire pit) were an awesome bonus and the view from the back porch of the 10th green was beautiful. A wonderful place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee. It was super quiet and we had the whole building to ourselves. Our host Connie was incredibly attentive to any questions we had. Also, bravo to her with the extra directions in the app to find the unit as it was tucked away and easily missed. We will definitely be back and staying with this Super Host!"
