  • Roomy house near restaurants and activities.


    The address in near numerous restaurants/clubs and close to downtown, the museum district and the medical center. The home's interior was tidy and spacious, inclusive of a comfortable office area. Wifi was great, television program access less so. The kitchen and laundry areas were well appointed and the property manager was friendly, courteous and easy to contact, which we appreciated give our 6-day stay. The property needs maintenance, i.e. bedroom door handles were absent or not functional and the pedestrian gates are broken, so one cannot secure the front or rear outdoor spaces. The back yard was cute, but could use some sprucing up. One easily fixed oddity would be the limited area for clothing storage. The bedroom closets were almost entirely filled with linens, pillows, etc. with only 2 hangers and a few pegs. Armoire was inaccessible and there were no dressers.

    This property was awesome.. It was everything you expect in an old house with all the bells and whistles of a modern upgrade.. Can't wait to stay again..

  • Cozy spot in a trendy neighborhood


    I rented the property for the weekend. Communication with the property manager was quick and easy. Home heated up very easily in January. Beds were very comfortable. Great yard for pets and groups to use. Would definitely book again!

  • Clean spot right in the gaybourhood


    House is just a few blocks from a ton of nightlife spots and eateries. Pro's:Great location Clean Keypad door entry, contactless check in Decent water pressure in shower Con's:Very very low water pressure at kitchen and bathroom sinks The thinnest and cheapest toilet paper on earth (altho I understand not spending a ton of money on this by the property owner)The walkway to the front door is in shambles. If it's dark out it's quite dangerous The mattresses are very hard. I have a firm mattress at home but these were like concrete. Woke up with a numb shoulder a few times. Tip: The TV remote does literally nothing. The volume and channel buttons dont have any effect. The guide Doesnt work. Ignore that remote and use the Roku remote. The volume and channel buttons are on the side of that remote. However, I couldn't find any basic network stations like Fox, CBS, etc. Went thru all of the channels one by one (no guide) and all of the apps on the Roku but no dice for Sunday football - - no issue tho, the Houston Eagle a couple blocks down had them on! That place is a hoot. Overall this place is a good value for the money and the location makes it worth it.

    Front yard can be a walking hazard as very uneven brick to navigate especially in the dark. Glad we didn't bring the dogs as with the rain it was a muddy mess front and back.
