About Vicki Williams, Owner

I'm a native Houstonian and Heights resident since 2003. 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 in the Woodland Heights for 6 years before I bought and moved 3 miles to another home in the Heights. In 2016, I built and now also offer a 1 bedroom 1 bath garage apt at my residence in the Houston Heights. Living in the center of Houston, in the Heights, is the best. There is a unique ambiance to the area 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 Northside

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 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.

This place was everything that I imagined it to be. Very quiet and pleasant area... I couldn't have picked a better stay for me and my family . The house was so cozy and Mrs Vicki made sure that we had everything we needed. From manual help , guides, To Do's etc etc she had it!!! Very easy to get in touch with and very helpful... The house was a plus...It was actually hard leaving to do anything we had planned because her home felt just like that!!!! HOME!!! Everything was so close and easy to maneuver in the area.... If I could write a book about this 2 day stay I would..... but that's History!!! But if I'm ever in the area again, I will most likely be staying right here.... Price was very reasonable, even with the added fees , it was still in our budget!!.... THANK YOU MRS VICKI....WE APPRECIATE YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO MAKE YOUR PLACE OUR HOME FOR SUCH A SHORT TIME!!! A MUST DO AGAIN

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights, and found this home to be among the very best VRBO experiences that we have had. Charming Houston historic bungalow in a fun neighborhood, located close to downtown. The home was clean and everything was functional. The owner was very accommodating and made every effort to ensure a pleasant stay. This home is highly recommended for an enjoyable stay in Houston.

We enjoyed the house. It was in a good neighborhood. Close enough to town but far enough out to be quiet. Everything we needed was here. Owner was quick to answer any questions we had.

Really a "home" away

  • 4 of 5

We stayed over here for just a couple days when vr-hopping (vacation rental hopping) around Houston early Spring 2017. The house has so much life in it. Vicky was very thoughtful filling up with fridge and rest of the house. You'd find everything from a diaper rash cream to spices

Our kids enjoyed the hot-tub in backyard quite a bit. This place is pretty close to most Houston attractions

The only thing I didnt like much is that the rental has a 1500$ refundable deposit for property damages. I've not seen such a high damage-deposit before (typically, it would be about 200-400$). This forced us to go for a protection-plan and spend 60-70$ in addition to the rental.., which is a waste

Great location, great neighborhood, perfect place for my month in Houston.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a month away from the cold Midwest. Great neighborhood to walk around. Also White Oak Bayou 5 minutes away with hike and bike trails. Walk to restaurants. Fun to explore the Downtown Heights streets as well as the actual Downtown Houston sights. We also loved the fenced in back yard with deck and spa. We would book again!!
