Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Addison Road, Houston, TX 77030, United States

The Space

Our home is traditional eclectic and was featured as a house tour on Apartment Therapy. We have three available bedrooms, two downstairs and one upstairs, all with double beds. The two bathrooms are shared, not private.

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.

  • I had the best time at Sarah’s and Reese’s enchanted house! What wonderful people! I also enjoyed playing with their adorable dog, Tilly.
    In addition to the warm welcome, the beautiful decorations and Sarah’s gorgeous paintings and artifacts, it was very comfortable and conveniently located three blocks away from Rice Village.
    I cannot wait to go back!

  • A very peaceful house with 3 guest rooms. I had the large room at the top with the sole use of a bathroom opposite. The place was an easy walk to Rice university, and also to the Rice village for food. Sarah was a lovely host, easy going and an excellent painter. I'll certainly try and stay with her again if I'm back at Rice sometime.

  • Sarah is the best! Always made to feel like one of the family. Lovely home in a beautiful neighborhood right near Rice U, the Med Center, and Museums. I will be back!

  • We had a great time in Houston. Sarah was a very welcome and helpful host. The room was clean and comfortable. The house is very well located near Rice village and the university campus.

  • Home is more than place -
    Sarah, Reese and Tilly's welcome
    sustains through the stay and beyond

  • Sarah and Reece were great hosts. Super friendly with a lovely artsy clean house and great ideas for things to do in the area. And Tilly the Poodle was awesome!

    February 2014
  • I really enjoyed staying with Sarah and Reese and Tilly. I roomed upstairs and the accommodations were spacious and welcoming. I was in and out at some odd hours during my visit and this was not an issue at all for my hosts. I have found my place to stay in Houston!

  • Sarah was such a kind and welcoming host. My trip to Houston was a great one because of her! Her beautiful house was exceptionally clean and the room I stayed in was also very clean with fresh towels and a beautiful view of her street. She was very helpful in helping me get around the area. I would with out a doubt stay there again if not just for her company :)

    February 2014
  • Sarah maintains a lovely, clean and welcoming house. It was an absolute pleasure to stay with her during my time in Houston. I would highly recommend this house to any friend visiting town.

About
I am an artist who writes.....or maybe a writer who paints. One of my absolute favorite things in the world to do is showing hospitality. 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. I drink a large bowl of cappulatte every morning. (I'm pretty sure I invented the term cappulatte.) It's got the milk of a latte with the added foam of a cappuccino. It's quite good, hence the large bowl for drinking it.....mmmm, coffee. 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.
