NW Houston - Perfect place to await a new home, visit family or rest after work.

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 6 - 10 nights


About the property

2 bedroom/1 bath in a quiet, wooded neighborhood. Spic & span. New appliances.

This warm and welcoming rental sits on one acre along with the main house, and is surrounded by 100-year-old oaks and pines. Forest on two sides beautifully shields our guests from the outside world. With song birds of all kinds, a lovely garden, and a picturesque flock of hens providing farm fresh eggs (no noisy rooster!), our property truly is a relaxing getaway with all the amenities of the city.

Owners Frank and Becky Thompson live in the lower house with their college-age daughters, their young son age 9 and their miniature golden retriever. Since our rental is a spacious, newly-renovated and furnished 2 bedroom/1 bath over-the-garage apartment, we call it the "Upper House". It has a complete kitchen and laundry, both with all new appliances.

The Upper House features:

Sleeping quarters – Cozy and comfortable pillow top mattresses are on each bed. Soft fine quality bed linens and towels provide all the comforts of home away from home. We have 1 queen bed in the master plus a twin bed in the small bedroom. The living area has a very comfortable couch which can also be used for sleeping if needed.

Kitchen/Laundry/Bathroom – Fully-stocked with all the necessary dishes, utensils and small appliances you would need to prepare meals for your family. New appliances include an oven, refrigerator/freezer, stove, microwave and washer and dryer. The bathroom is also completely new with a shower, no tub.

Cable Television & Internet Access – Basic cable and wifi

Exercise & Outdoor Amenities – The gas grill and covered picnic area are available for your personal use by reservation. Our 1-acre property provides many shady spots and children love our swings, garden, playhouse, basketball net and big yard. The neighborhood is an excellent place for a morning power walk or an evening stroll, and we are just a short jog away from a lovely hike-and-bike trails of 2, 3 and 5 miles in length. Two adult bicycles are available to guests. Golf is just 5 minutes away at the beautiful Longwood Golf Club

Parking – We have parking available for two cars. We can accommodate more upon request.

Children – Well-behaved children (on the whole) are always welcome.

Pets – Considered

NO SMOKING – Smoking is not allowed indoors or out.

NEARBY SHOPPING – 3 major grocery stores 5 minutes away. Walmart, Target, JC Penney and many others are all just 5-10 minutes away. The Fairifeld Outlet Mall is 10 minutes away.


HOUSTON MUSEUMS AND THEATERS – Cypress Cinemark is just 5 minutes away. We are a 30 minute drive from the museum/theater district when traffic cooperates.

We liked the quiet neighborhood. Would consider staying here on a future visit. Frank and Becky were very friendly and made you feel like you were at home. Very positive experience.

Charming property!

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Becky are exceptional hosts, and very attentive to their guests' needs! My family recently had the pleasure to stay for two weeks in their charming guest house. All the amenities you might need are provided, with excellent shopping/dining just around the corner. You don't feel like you're in the big city because of how large the quiet property is with all the glorious trees. My favorite aspects of this home are the split bedroom configuration, full kitchen in which we cooked everyday, and relaxing view of the lovely backyard, chickens (who are very quiet), and pond.

Thank you for having us!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Becky and Frank were the perfect hosts and made us feel absolutely at home. The apartment was cosy, clean and well maintained. Appliances were all in good condition. Our hosts were attentive to all our needs. Would certainly come again if visiting the neighbourhood, and recommend this to my friends or relatives.

Simply perfect! Country Charm!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful experience at this charming home while waiting one month for our new home to be built. The owners are wonderful people that offer southern hospitality plus! You will have complete privacy and a nice quiet retreat that is also close to all the shopping you ever need. This apartment unit is quiet, clean and very comfortable with all the items you need for a long or short term stay. Highly recommend this VRBO! It’s a ten!

As advertised and reviewed

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Becky were great hosts. We had slight internet router issue but resolved with a lot of energy.

Our stay was absolutely fantastic and after speaking to my wife and son, we felt we made the perfect choice as we felt at home.

Thank you,

Shepard Family
