Houston Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Bungalow is a freshly remodeled 1930's era cottage, conveniently located in the prestigious inner-loop neighborhood of Bellaire. Within four miles or less are the Houston Galleria, Reliant Center, and the Houston Medical Center. Here you will find all the comforts of home nestled within a peaceful, safe and beautiful community.

Much of the original character of the house remains, with crown molding and hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen has been tastefully re-done with custom cherry cabinets and high end appliances, including a Thermador range for those who enjoy cooking. The kitchen is fully outfitted with everything you need except food.

Both bedrooms have comfortable queen beds with soft, high thread-count linens and plenty of windows. The single bath has a tub and a shower. A spacious private back deck allows for morning coffee and evening meals outside.

Whether our guests are in town for a sporting event, the Houston Rodeo, world class shopping, or staying with us while family members are in the hospital, all find the cottage a quiet retreat from city life and a welcome alternative to an impersonal hotel. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

About Kathy

We live in a rural community about 35 minutes south of Houston. We find that as our daughter has become more involved in school activities, we are able to spend less and less time at our cottage in town. VRBO allows us to rent the home until she goes off to college, when we are able to once again spend time there.

Kathy purchased this bungalow in 1996

Why Kathy chose Houston

Quiet, safe neighborhood. Great location, close to everything.

What makes this bungalow unique

World class dining a short cab ride away. Easy access to the medical center, entertainment venues, sporting events. Great shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This quaint bungalow is nestled quietly among big city life. It is convenient to everything you need in Houston, and yet you do not know you are in the middle of a big city when the back door closes. You will truly feel like you are at home. This home has been furnished nicely. It has a fully equipped kitchen plus they have provided high quality linens for both beds and the bathroom. The owners were very accommodating and worked with us on arrival and departure dates very closely. I was not disappointed and will go back for a stay on our next trip to Houston.

Great home in a wonderful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely, clean home for a month with my husband and two teenage children. We enjoyed the peaceful, safe neighborhood that is so convenient to everything--shopping, medical center, parks etc. The home itself felt spacious enough for us and we used the bungalow as we would our home--cooking, washing clothes, etc. All appliances are in excellent condition. The homeowners, who are so nice and easy to work with, seem to take care of this bungalow. I will definitely rent this home again when I go to Houston in the future!

Perfect place for a small group. Cozy and quiet with excellent amenities. If you're looking for a place to hang out with friends in a non-hotel atmosphere with a nice sit in kitchen area with lots of windows, this is certainly the place! Great backyard to congregate and socialize with friends and very private. Must recommend this bungalow for any out of towners looking for a relaxing weekend in Houston!
