*Minutes from Downtown, Museum District, Rice, Med. Center, Galleria, I-10, 45 North, and 610.
*Walk to downtown in 15 minutes on the walking trail
*Train to downtown and medical center is 5 blocks away
*Lots of great restaurants, bars and coffee-shops close by
*Room comes with mini-fridge, microwave, coffee-pot, wireless, great cable and lots of Victorian charm!

We love Air BnB and have traveled across the U.S. staying in lovely people's homes. So we are thrilled to offer a very private room with a private entrance and private bath in our Victorian cottage (built in 1904) in the Houston Heights, an area just minutes from downtown. The sweet room has its own private courtyard for relaxing in Houston's balmy nights. The room also features a mini fridge, a microwave, full cable TV (HBO and SHOWTIME), and coffeepot -- everything you need for your home away from home. Laundry facilities are available. We value your privacy and the room is set up so that you can come and go through your own private entrance without ever seeing us, though we would love to spend time with anyone who visits!

We are long time Houston residents and can offer lots of help finding places for eating, running, taking in the arts, and just about anything you might want to do in H-town. The Heights is inside the loop and one of Houston's oldest neighborhoods, with lots of hundred year old homes and great restaurants and charming shops. The famous Galleria is less than 15 minutes away and downtown is literally a mile and a half miles from our home. Museums and the theater district are a ten minute drive. Most sports arenas are downtown and the Reliant Stadium is a fifteen minute spin around the loop.

Bus or train can take you downtown, though Houston is not known for its good public transportation. But we offer lots of off-street parking.

Our room offers a quiet retreat, a very comfy bed and loads of historical charm! There is also a very good sleeping mat for a child.

We love our animals and have three dogs who DON'T go into the guest room and two cats who live on the porch. Let our home be your home during your stay in Houston!

Guest Access

Guests have access to washer/dryer, off street parking, all the coffee you can drink!

Interaction with Guests

The room has a private entrance and we work, but we can be gotten in touch with via texting and phone!

The Neighborhood

The Heights is a great centrally located neighborhood filled with great shops and even better restaurants! Voted one of 10 best neighborhoods in the country by Forbes this year!

Getting around

The Red Line train is just a few blocks away. It runs through downtown to the Museum District and the Medical Center; there are also several busses run down Main Street. Guest have used them in the past. We also have bikes to share, but Houston really is a driving town!

Other Things to Note

We have bikes to lend and they can be taken on the train and the busses! The Heights is full of great restaurants and specialty shopping.

    March 2014
  • Cynthia's room was lovely, very fresh, and clean. The shower was big and the bathroom newly appointed. We were delighted to borrow bikes to explore the near neighbourhood and to check out where the metro stop was for the following day. Our hosts were very kind and provided us with as much information regarding the transport as they could. The bed was very comfortable too. I would highly recommend their accommodation to others.

    March 2014
  • The "Lovely Private Room" was indeed very lovely! The space was exactly as we had hoped- comfortable and tidy. Cynthia was easy to communicate with and made great recommendations for restaurants in the area. We were so pleased with our stay and we hope to return to Houston in the near future!

    March 2014
  • Renting with Cynthia was my first time using Airbnb and I could not have asked for a better experience. She was a very gracious, friendly and helpful host - leading up to my stay she always responded to my messages in a timely manner. Also had great restaurant recommendations. The room was very clean, airy and bright. Much better than staying in a hotel. I highly recommend Cynthia - if I ever find myself in the Houston area again I will be contacting her first thing!

I teach college in Houston, Texas, and am also a local Realtor on the side. I love shopping, sports, the theater (Houston really does have great theater!), museums, gardening and eating out at all the amazing restaurants that Houston has to offer. I've lived in Houston for three decades and know lots about the secret surprises our city has to offer -- including where to get a great, inexpensive massage; where to get safe acupuncture; where the free, fun shows are; and how to get to the races, soccer games, football stadium, and baseball stadium. With the help of Air BnB, I've been to Savannah, Chicago, Boston, and New Orleans and have loved my experiences! And so far, I've met amazing people at my own Air BnB.
