  • Beautiful home and wonderful host


    Thank you so much Sidney for the opportunity to stay at your lovely home! You are such a kind host and had a beautiful home with all the amenities for our Rice graduation celebration weekend. With ages 22-80 our family did really well. And thank you for your kindness in letting us have a late chrckout too!

    The home was generally clean and we were provided with plenty of towels and toiletries. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to stay for the week. The owner who lives on-site in garage apartment was friendly. However, the home had many plug in air fresheners so there was a very strong air freshener smell even when we unplugged the air fresheners. If you are at all sensitive to fragrances this is not the house for you! Even after leaving the home all of our clothes and luggage needed to be washed or aired out to remove the fragrance smell. There was also critters living in the attic. We saw a possum daily on the fence or window sills of the home and a racoon on the last day. Not sure which is living inside the house but would hear it moving around at night. We told the owner and he was not concerned and even mentioned how other guests love the possum.

  • Peaceful location conveniently located


    We came to Houston for a medical procedure. I was accompanied by my husband, sister, and adult daughter. We had enough space to spread out and be comfortable, but also come together and make some meals. The home is well equipped for cooking but close enough to restaurants for eating out. We enjoyed watching movies, relaxing, and sitting outside in the backyard area. The host has constructed a beautiful plant wall like I’ve never seen before. Perfect for quiet meditation moments.
