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.

We spend a few days feeling just at home
Sarah and her family are warm welcoming people, open minded and open to other cultures
The house and area are authentic and charming
We had a great time!
I love staying here when I visit Houston. The room is spotless and very comfortable. It is quiet and the host is lovely. A sweet and quiet haven for me.
Highly recommended. W e had a wonderful stay at Sarah and Reese's home. They were very warm and welcoming, generous with their space. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful backyard and the mural. The kitchen and den were available to us and sharing with our hosts felt comfortable and easy. The bedroom and bathroom were perfect. Clean and comfortable. Terrific mattress!! We slept very well. Tilly the dog was a joy. Location was outstanding. Walkable to the University and shops , restaurants, museums, and Hermann Park. Couldn't' have been better. Hoping to stay there again when we come back to Houston to visit our son.
Sarah and her husband are great people. Great place. Highly recommend.
I loved staying with Sarah! And they're dog is everything. My first air bnb experience was definitely a great one! And they have a French press, so that's a plus.
Sarah and Reese are amazing hosts. I highly recommend.
Location is perfect. Short walk to Rice University.
We had a very nice stay at the Hazel's residence. Sarah was generous and gave us free brewery passes. The hosts were friendly and not intrusive.

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.
