About this listing

The space

Our home is traditional eclectic and was featured as a house tour on Apartment Therapy.

Our home is welcoming and comfortable, not new and fancy. It's full of original art work and has a mural painted across the entire back of the house.

We have a dog. She's big, friendly, likes to give high fives, and stick her nose in your lap in case you forget to pet her. She basically barks twice a day - in the morning as kids and their pets are walking to school, and at the mailman in the afternoon.

Just because we have beer in the fridge doesn't mean it's breakfast juice. Please BYOB.

We live in a great location -- close to the Medical Center, Rice University, the Museum District, and Rice Village Shopping Center. We're within easy walking distance to Rice Village which offers a variety of shopping, cafes, restaurants, and pubs. We're also within walking distance to Rice U and the Med Center. We're a short bus ride to Reliant Center, home of the Texans and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and can walk to the Metrorail for an easy ride downtown for theatre, opera, symphony, baseball, basketball, and soccer, and probably something else that I can't remember.

It's not very accommodating for people with mobility issues.

The guest is welcome to exclusive use of the attached restroom. This room opens to the den.

At the moment, there is a 1980 Buick stretch limousine in the driveway. It's a work in progress.

Sarah is a very gracious hostess and her home is conveniently located to major institutions in Houston. I would recommend her house for anyone who wants convenient access to the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, etc.

Sarah is a gracious host. The room was clean, comfortable and beautiful. Tillie the wonder dog is an added bonus. If we are in Houston, again, we will definitely see if she has a room available.

Loved Sarah's place: quiet, private, and clean. Got a great night's sleep on comfy bed. On a business trip to med center so location worked out perfectly. Thanks Sarah for the quick communication, hope to meet you next time!

I would highly recommend this to anyone who is coming through Houston! Extremely convenient location and super clean and comfortable. Sarah and her family were so friendly and I enjoyed getting to know them. I loved playing with their dogs too!

This beautiful muraled home made for a wonderful stay for two of our visiting artists from the museum. It is in a central location close to shops and the museum district and Sarah has been a lovely and accommodating host. Thank you!

Sarah User ProfileSarah is a superhost.

I am an artist who writes.....or maybe a writer who paints.
I speak semi-fluent Spanglish.
I love volunteering -- but my absolute favorite volunteering of all time is taking Tilly the Wonder dog to Methodist Hospital for pet therapy with the patients.
One of the biggest blessings in my life was getting whooping cough, also known as the 100 day cough, because it allowed me undistracted time and opportunity to learn how to play the ukulele.
I've gone busking with said ukulele and earned enough money to buy a few really good craft beers plus tip.
Just a thought, but I think this whole airbnb enterprise should be called airbnBYOB.
I'm married to the Amazing Reese and we have four grown daughters who are all beautiful, kind, and smart.
Did I mention Tilly the Wonder dog? She's a stunning black standard poodle that we found at the Humane Society. She's the absolute best dog we've ever had.
Last thing -- I enjoy re-arranging furniture and honestly think that the furniture enjoys it, too. If, during your visit, you notice that your room isn't represented exactly like it was in the airbnb photographs, it's because the furniture and I decided a change was in order.
