Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Mary & Sam & Cameron + ( David Bowie),

We had a good and safe journey back to the very cold UK.

We had a most pleasant time in Cypress and we loved the space, and peace and quiet of your surroundings. We also enjoyed the area with lots of golf especially at the Longwood GC were it was so friendly and we joined their ” Loyalty Club “ which was ideal for visitors and very good value for money- a useful tip for any future golfing visitors which you have.

We left a clamp on lamp for your future use to light up the corner where we had our computer and we hope that we left everything in the property to your satisfaction.

Thank you for a wonderful time and we wish you all a superb Thanksgiving, Happy Christmas and prosperity in the future.

Kindest regards,

Margaret & Stuart P.

Our Teens Loved the Backyard

  • 5 of 5
A family with 4 teens and one ten year old, we found this property had a lot to offer in terms of things to keep the kids busy. Two families shared this home while in Houston for a summer wedding. The basketball court was the big draw for us, but the zip line added a ton of fun as well. The zip line is not so high as to truly be scary, but enough of a climb up to be a bit adventurous. The fresh eggs from the chicken coop was a treat and fun to collect. Fire pits are available that would be great in spring/fall. The grounds are pretty, with well kept horses in clear site. The best thing about this property is (as indicated by the name the owners gave it on VRBO) the country atmosphere in the city. Everything you need is around the corner, including a community Walmart, HEB, restaurants and a city park. The neighborhood is pretty and the homes all have large yards with tons of trees. Cypress, TX itself is a respite from Houston bustle. The house is clean and the large kitchen was nice. I would not say the house inside is super modern, but it is adequately updated. The kitchen had most everything you need to cook a major meal, including some spices. The master bedroom and large attached bath could be considered luxurious. The other two bedrooms and study are set up to be flexible on how many it sleeps. Two bedrooms have trundle beds, so not ideal for adults, but we found them comfortable enough. My only complaint was that one of the rooms gets lots of light-nice for daytime, but needs better window coverings for early morning. There were 3 floor mats available for sleeping on that the kids utilized. The second bath that the two trundle-bed bedrooms share was not large, but clean/adequate. Outside, two cars can easily park in the garage- an unusual plus for home rental. The owners are very accommodating, friendly and readily available. Their home is on one end of the property where the basketball court is, but it feels like you have the place to yourself. I can especially recommend this place for families with teens/older kids.

Great Acommodations!

  • 4 of 5
Dear Sam & Mary,
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. It turned out to be the perfect place for our family to relax together during all the wedding hubbub. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy time together. Our 3 month old granddaughter is already requesting her own hammock, she loved her "swinging"
naps.

The home was very well appointed and had everything we needed. The wireless internet was very reliable and appreciated. The deck was a fabulous place to sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful Houston weather. We enjoyed a campfire one evening. If another trip to Houston is in our future we would definitely stay again.

Great family stay

  • 5 of 5
Everything is advertised and Sam is very attentive to his guest's needs. If had one quibble it was lack of patio furniture on the back porch. If you're in Houston when the weather's fine it would be nice to take advantage of it.

Something for everyone, from age 86 to 6!

  • 5 of 5
The house and grounds were immaculate and thoughtfully designed to be family friendly. The railings on the stairways made it easy for the old girls to get into the house. Very clean and came with everything we needed to get ready for a wedding, and made for a nice "homebase" for all of our travels to NASA, Galveston, and into the city of Houston.

Jilly and Wyatt (6yo)really enjoyed the farm animals. The horses were a big hit, and daily visits to them started our day off right. Fresh eggs and goats on the porch added to the country atmosphere. Jilly wanted to thank Mr. Sam for all his personal attention with the horses, and will be starting riding lessons soon to make him proud.

Thank you so much, we will be back next time we are in Houston.

Beautiful, clean, and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We were five moms from Wisconsin on an adventure. We were very pleased with this property. It was clean and spacious. In addition, it was close to a variety of local attractions but still far enough out of the way to be peaceful and relaxing. Truly a wonderful find that we hope to return to soon!

Family of 5 with 3 young kids

  • 5 of 5
The house is great and the property fantastic. The home is immaculate with every amenity, space for the kids, and activities for everyone. Tons to do on the property outdoors with horses, chickens, firepits, go-karts and ziplines. Easy access to plenty of restaurants, shops, and activities. Just over 30 min to downtown without traffic. We'll definitely stay again next time we're in Houston.
