Overview

About the property

Walking or train distance to EVERYTHING.

AVAILABILITY: End of October thru mid December ONLY. We are looking for a tenant (or 2) who needs a furnished apartment for a minimum of 1 month (30 days).

PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING: description, amenities (what we have and don't have!), rules, and photos and their captions. That way there will be no surprises for you.

This large loft has two actual, traditional, totally enclosed bedrooms, floor to ceiling, with actual doors. This is a bonus for business partners or friends traveling together, relatives, light sleepers, loud snorers, and more.

............................................................................................

GUEST ACCESS:

Very safe building security- parking garage gate and all entrances/elevators require an electronic remote given only to residents. Complete kitchen, wireless internet, shared rooftop terrace for wine after dinner (or a business meeting with an impressive view!), and gym.

................................................................................................

TO NEWER GUESTS:

In order to ensure I accept your reservation request, especially if you are trying to reserve last-minute, include as many personal details as possible in your message to me- what you do, or why you're coming to Houston- the more info you feel comfortable with sharing, the more likely i'll feel comfortable sharing my home with you. If I have to chose between a 10-sentence request and a 5-sentence request... The longer one will win, every time.

...........................................................................................

I will be available 24/7 by phone/email/text should you need me and will usually be nearby in the suburbs, an hour away.

..............................................................................................

TRANSPORTATION:

What are the 3 most important things in real estate? Location, location, location. The metrorail line goes to the museums, zoo, miller outdoor theatre, uh main campus and downtown, medical center, and more. Walk to all the sports games, symphony, opera, ballet, broadway, and dozens of popular restaurants. Yellowcab & greenlink (a free bus that follows a continuous circuit downtown) are also available. Walk through the underground tunnel system (on weekdays during business hours) to many places while avoiding the heat/cold/rain. To go outside downtown, the bus can take you nearly to the suburbs. A public rent-a-bike system as also available for those who enjoy cycling! For slightly farther adventures (NASA for example) try Uber or Lyft- taxi apps you can download to your smartphone.

...........................................................................................

OTHER STUFF:

Privacy policy requires that I disclose that there are security cameras throughout the building. You can recycle almost anything here (one bin, no sorting), and we use green mountain renewable energy. There is filtered water, an ice machine, iron and ironing board, hangers for your use, fully stocked medicine cabinet, a selection of office supplies, toys/games/books/dvds for the kids and adults. If you would like us to have a printer out for you, let us know.

HOUSE RULES/CHECKOUT GUIDELINES- required for deposit refund

1) DON’T ANNOY MY NEIGHBORS! This is what is most important to us and why our deposit is so high. No parties, no loud talking in the hallway, no loud music. Do not bother/buzz through the intercom my neighbors or the building employees. If you have questions, contact me- not them. I reply immediately to guests who are currently staying. Do not try to follow anyone into the garage, elevator, or doors- and don’t let anyone else follow you. This is a private residential building, and it’s their home too- we need to be mindful and respectful of that. We have to live with them on Monday through Friday and would prefer they not hate us.

2) As said above- no parties. You will not receive your deposit back if you have a party. The people named on your reservation are the ONLY ones allowed in the building. (I may make exceptions on a case by case basis.) Please be advised that there are monitored, live-stream security cameras operating 24/7 throughout the building. If you are looking for a fun place for a party, I can recommend awesome restaurants/clubs- some of which will let you use their great upstairs patios/balconies for free!

3) No smoking or pets.

4) Wash, dry, and put back any kitchen items you use. (You may start a load of dishes in the washer on the way out. Soap pods are above sink.)

5) Drop all dirty sheets/towels in the laundry basket- not the blankets/quilts/comforters please, they’re too large and I need to do them separately. No need to put on new sheets!

6) Leave everything like you found it- unplug anything that you plugged in, turn off all lights, turn off A/C and/or heat.

7) Take the trash with you on the way out.

Perfect Location, perfect stay!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Elizabeth is the sweetest!! She was very accommodating and helpful. The apartment was perfect for our stay and very convenient to the George Brown Convention Center. It was about a 15 minute walk but was worth not dealing with Convention Center traffic. Beds are very comfy and everything was very clean.

great location

  • 4 of 5

If you are headed to anything in or near downtown, this is the place. protected parking. easy enough in + out and close to a lot of restaurants/pubs. The owners keep the place very clean and have been doing this a while, so they anticipate your every question. Everything is well described and cared for. I was also surprised how quiet it was. I will certainly rent here again when the need arises.

Great location and wonderful amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the annual International Quilt Festival. The property is close to the George Brown Convention Center - one metro stop away - and had everything we needed for a stay away from home. We enjoyed the open concept living/dining and kitchen area, super high ceilings, and having two separate bedrooms was extra nice. Everything was spotlessly clean and perfectly maintained. Elizabeth was a terrific host. Thanks for a great stay!

Very Nice Place and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Elizabeth was very responsive to us. The home was cozy and comfy, it suited our needs perfectly for a weekend downtown to enjoy performing arts. Parking is very secure, we did not need our our car once we arrived and knowing it was safely tucked away in the parking garage was one less thing to be concerned about. Highly recommended if you are coming to Houston and need a comfortable place to stay without the expense of a hotel.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Place....

Wonderful 2 bedroom with a perfect mix of cozy and modern warehouse industrial feel. High ceilings, plenty of room to spread out, huge bathroom. Beds were very comfortable. Very cool roof top deck. Elizabeth was very helpful with anything we needed, directions, suggestions. We had all necessary amenities to make for a very comfortable and enjoyable 3 night stay.

Very clean!

Location....

Perfect place to stay in houston. Walked to the astros game all three days. Plenty of great places to eat. Felt extremely safe the whole time. Took the metro rail to the butterfly exhibit, straight rout, very quick and easy to use.
