Quite charming comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house for about 30days while working in Houston. It was so nice coming back to the house after working long hours. Beds were very comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Highly Recommend Eve's Garden

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Houston to see our niece's Senior play and celebrate our Dad's 80th birthday and parent's 50th Anniversary. We did not want to stay in a hotel because we wanted a comfortable place for the family to gather. Eve's Garden was the perfect solution. We had room for the entire family to sleep comfortably. The best part was so many choices of gathering areas - a large den, large dining room, beautiful outdoor space in the front and back yards, and a game room with a shuffle board table that was used heavily! The home is beautifully maintained and well stocked.

Fabulous, comfortable, fun property

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had at eves garden. The beds were extremely comfortable, there were plenty of supplies for us (towels, dishes, glasses, etc), drinks in the refrigerator and a warm welcome with wonderful scented plugins. We would go back in a heartbeat if back in the area. Thank you so much

Truly a Prefect Property

  • 5 of 5

We came in with 5 teenagers and 3 adults to compete in the USPA Interscholastic Tournament at ERG Arena and stumbled upon this house through VBRO - what a find!!! Having a mix of boy and girl players we didn't want to have to get 4 hotel rooms PLUS spend all night listening for kids sneaking out! This house was prefect with ample space for the kids to sleep and relax while we (me and my husband) stayed in the upstairs suite and our 3rd adult had a king sized bed to himself. Since the house was so incredible - the home owner Marla - allowed us to rent the full facility so that we could invite all of the teams playing in the tournament over for a BBQ on Saturday night. Although the party, with the TV room for kids, Courtyard, huge Saloon, sitting room, steel barn AND Patio area was prefect for us and our 70+ guests - I sort of regret having them all over since they will now be competing with us to rent the house again next year!!

Everyone commented on the decorating of the place, which is truly charming and the actual parking lot provided out front was SO helpful with all the Trucks!!

Wonderful place - very comfortable beds - highly recommended. OH and the coffee was AWESOME!

Great retreat for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent our 2013 Thanksgiving here and absolutely loved it. We especially liked the extra-large dining room table and complete (and fancy!) table settings for 10 of us. The kitchen was stocked with every conceivable bowl, utensil, etc. we needed to serve up a great Thanksgiving dinner--including a double oven! We also loved the fireplace in the living room. It happened to be super-cold that week, so it was definitely nice to have.

The grandkids all loved spending time in the Saloon where we listened to music, played poker, dominos and American shuffleboard. It was really special for us to all be together--we had a blast.

Beds were comfy and had nice linens and pillows. There was a perfect mix of beds--King, Doubles and Twins. We all slept wonderfully. Bathrooms were clean and well-stocked.

My only criticism (and a minor one) was the TV and Internet situation. Since it was Thanksgiving, they guys wanted to watch football, and the tiny TV and limited cable stations made it challenging to do so. Luckily, we had a family member that came up a day late and brought us a big 42" TV to connect. TV problem solved! Not so much for the internet, though. It was routinely slow and/or not working and regular LTE/4G reception was non-existent in that location.

All-in-all, though, a wonderful place to stay. We would definitely stay there again (and may!) and highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at Eve's Garden for over a month. The home is very inviting, clean,comfy beds and close to our family. The property has a Saloon with a shuffleboard table which afforded our grandchildren lots of fun. Great eateries close by in downtown Fulshear. Rays and Deckers were our favorites. Brookshire has all you need for groceries and a great thrift store with good finds, also a nice library.Then there is Marla one of the owners. Her warm southern spirit comes across as soon as you meet and talk to her. She couldn't do enough for us. The property shines, lawn and grounds perfectly maintained, Trash promptly removed. fresh grapefruit off of the trees in the yard.Nice neighbors. We do plan on returning. Barbara McRath (Pa.)
