Great family stay

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.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your kind review and suggestion. It was wonderful getting to know you and your lovely family. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in near future.

Something for everyone, from age 86 to 6!

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.

Donald, Michelle, Jason, Erin, Jilly, and the Old Girls
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kindest review. It was an absolute pleasure knowing you all and Jilly. We look forward seeing you all again soon. Jilly is amazing, we feel so blessed that we had the opportunity know you all. I appreciate your time, and wish you pleasant moments always.
Kindest Regards,
Sam & Mary Rush

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.

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!

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.
