About Property Manager/Owner

Born and raised in the Houston area. Love this city!

Property Manager/Owner purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Houston

Since I live in the home part time when it is not being shared with out of town Guests like your self, you will find that it is a very well maintained and updated home. Nice hanging in closets for all your clothes that you may need. The living room has a nice 7 speaker surround sound system and comfortable sofa and chair. The AV equipment is networked to all of the televisions. I have wireless Lutron lighting. Also just incase you like reading you may enjoy the front porch.

What makes this bungalow unique

Whenever I have out of town guests like your self i stay in the detached apartment behind the home. This had added to my Guests comfort knowing that if you need something like a light bulb changed I'm close by to get it taken care of in a swift manner.

Everything is perfect. Everything. You can walk to tons of amazing restaurants: cajun, asian, Spanish, healthy, American, dessert, coffee shops, 2 ice house/bars, yet it is DEAD quiet at night. I slept like a baby. The owner is tremendously helpful and friendly. There isn't a thing to want for here. If this is remotely the area in Houston you need to be, this is the place to stay!!

Comfortable, easy access, accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My family of 4 adults stayed for 4 nights, the house is in a perfect location to access the museum area which was great for us. We cook most of our meals and the kitchen was spacious and basically equipped. Jonathan provided the specific cookware we needed and was quickly responsive to all our questions and requests. Great coffee shop right around the corner. The house is comfortably furnished and spacious enough for 4 people. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for a month and the house was better than advertised. The owner is friendly and helpful. The location is in a great neighborhood close to shopping and not far from downtown. No driveway parking but the street was always open. No complaints.

Easy long term stay

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our family stayed in this property for an entire summer and had a blast. We brought 2 young kids and they loved it too. The owner was especially helpful and available both before we arrived and during our stay. The location is amazing - very close to local restaurants, an easy trip into the museum district, very convenient to I-10 and I-610, and a quick drive to groceries/target/walmart. Also, we were impressed with the technology in the house (internet, linked televisions, nest thermostat (stayed nice and cool all summer), and security system. We highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a short term, furnished house in Houston.
