About Vicki Williams, Owner

I'm a native Houstonian and Heights resident for over 12 years. I had family in the Heights growing up and especially enjoyed visiting my Grandmother at her Heights bungalow that is so similar to this home.

I made my home at the Teetshorn bungalow for 6 years before I bought and moved to another home in the Heights. Living in the center of the Houston Heights, there is a unique ambiance and always something interesting to do. I really enjoy being a host and have fun keeping the bungalow updated and comfortable for my interesting and diverse guests.

Vicki Williams, Owner purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Vicki Williams, Owner chose Houston

Location! Just minutes from downtown Houston and access to most popular Houston venues. The Houston Heights area is a large district of gingerbread Victorian homes as well as 20th century bungalows. Like the nearby Montrose neighborhood, the Heights is home to a diverse population from artists and musicians to wealthy professionals. Parts of the Heights are still dry, fostering a large number of BYOB restaurants ideal for those who enjoy their own selected wines. Superb Houston location. This property has old time charm and modern updates to make it very comfortable for your stay.

*Longer term rentals are encouraged. Rates may be reduced for longer term. Ask host for more information.

What makes this bungalow unique

The Teetshorn Bungalow is perfect for a romantic get away or a business trip. Swing on the front porch swing or relax in the heated swim spa after a day in the museums or business meetings. Located in a walkable and friendly neighborhood that's close to parks and recreation, live entertainment including the famous Fitzgeralds, & with easy access to area events, sports, museum district, theatre district, downtown, the Galleria, The Texas Medical Center and the rest of Houston.

Public transportation friendly location with UBER, metro bus and light rail that can take you from downtown to med center and NRG center.

Nice House

  • 4 of 5

Nice house and great neighborhood. There were two couples sharing the house. The kitchen was nice and pretty well equipped. We enjoyed the space. The neighborhood is great to walk around. The house is centrally located and close to everything. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet neighborhood. Near I10, I45, and 610. Only 5 miles from museum district. House was comfortable and very clean. Owner provided a well stocked kitchen including snacks. She had ample info about local attractions and toiletries. It was too cold to try out the hot tub, but the porches were both great. Neighbors were friendly

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting houses/apartments with VRBO for years, and this was the best. This house is equipped with everything you need, plus the neighborhood is a trip of its own. I get together with my four granddaughters every year and having a wonderful place to stay makes our experience even better. We will be back next year.

Thanks, Vicki.

Clean, cozy - just right!

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in Houston’s historic area and is an absolute gem! It is exactly as described and has everything you will need to have an amazing stay; the house is well appointed and spotlessly clean. Vicki was helpful and gracious and her home reflects this. The neighborhood is quiet and absolutely beautiful; full of lovely and sometimes quirky homes of various types. We took an afternoon just walking around the neighborhood just looking at the different styles of architecture. All in all my family enjoyed their stay here and when we come back to Houston we will definitely like to stay here again.
