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!
Guests have access to bikes, private patio, washer/dryer, off street parking, mini in-room fridge and in-room microwave. Quiet, clean pets welcome!
Interaction with Guests
The room has a private entrance so you can have as much privacy as you want, but we can be gotten in touch with via texting and phone and we love to meet our guests! We are native Houstonians and are happy to help you navigate the city in any way we can!
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!
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 buses that run down Main Street, two blocks away. Guests have used them in the past. We also have bikes to share!
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.
Let us know when you need to use the washer/dryer. Please, only quiet, well-mannered dogs if you bring your best buddy! Music is good but loud music only with headphones. Clean up is after noon so respect check-out time (negotiable). No smoking inside. We know a lot about the city so feel free to ask us any questions you might have. Relax and enjoy your stay!
I had a perfect experience at Cynthia's place. The first thing I noticed was that Cynthia was very easy to communicate with before my arrival. Second, when I arrived, she was already out on the porch, ready with a warm welcome. The room itself is even better than the photos - Completely private, quiet, and with all the amenities I could need, and very charming decor. It was also completely spotless and tidy. Despite my short one-night stay, I found Cynthia to be very lovely to talk to and helpful with recommendations. I'm actually surprised to get such high value at this low price point. I hope Cynthia keeps this place available in the future because, after staying there, I really have no reason to ever stay anywhere else!
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience at Cynthia's private room in the Heights. Cynthia was very communicative on organizing when we could meet up to exchange keys. The place was wonderfully decorated and very private with it's own entrance. I would recommend this place to anyone, great price and location.
I had a delightful stay in Cynthia's lovely apartment in Houston. All of the reviews are spot on. Cynthia is a wonderful and kind person who went out of her way to make me feel at home - she even picked me up from the bus terminal upon arrival. The apartment is very charming and it's by far the best I've stayed in to date on airbnb. It's tastefully decorated with great attention to detail and has all the amenities one looks for including a comfortable bed, private bathroom, separate entrance and a few basic appliances. The neighbourhood (Houston Heights) is quiet and family-oriented, and has some good bars and restaurants. It's also really close to downtown, which can be accessed by light rail, bus, car or the bikes that Cynthia has provided. I had such an enjoyable time exploring the city on a beautiful Sunday by bicycle! Cynthia, thanks again for the lovely stay and hope to see you again.
Cynthia's place was great. Very comfortable and immaculately clean. Cynthia was a great host and offered lots of suggestions regarding things to see and places to eat. We would definitely stay at Cynthia's place if we were ever in Houston again.
Awesome place! Highly recommended.
- Very close to downtown
- Very close to the freeway
- Private, private, private! Just want a traveler need to rest and/or get things done.
- Cynthia was very helpful with providing information that you need about the area
- Parking onsite
- Very clean and neat place. As a clean freak, I enjoyed staying at this place. The private bathroom is white and clean.
- Comfortable bed! Slept very well.
Cynthia was an amazing host to our little family, thank you so much again! The house and garden are beautiful with attention to the detail and Cynthia makes you feel like you've lived there forever (which I would have loved to, by the way). We could not have asked for a greater host, the bed was very comfortable, you have your own private little garden and a friendly neighbourhood with a choice of restaurants close by. Cynthia went out of her way to help us after a very exhausting flight from Germany and lost luggage. We hope to see you again!
Great place, just as before. Really enjoyed our stay. Look forward to the next time!

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.
