Beautiful house with all the amenities needed to make your stay away from home perfect.
Had a family get together in Houston to celebrate the birth of my new grandson. Kara's home in the Heights was the perfect place to stay. The location and neighborhood is great, as well as the amenities. Had a minor issue with the smoke alarm battery and the owners responded promptly to resolve the issue. The pool offered a nice way to relax with our group. I can't think of anything that was missing from this house. It was truly like being at home. We would certainly consider staying there again in the future, should the need arise.
we spent a delightful 4 days at kara and jon's home.. first, we echo alana's review! it is a 10 star accommodation!! this home, in every respect, is one of the most outstanding places we've ever stayed. we are airbnb hosts and really appreciate all the touches that make this home special: everything is first class, immaculate, well appointed, comfortable, and in a GREAT location!! without ever meeting them, the way that they outfitted the house was extremely considerate. we, too, hope to stay here again since we visit houston every year.
This is a beautiful home! We hope to rent it again in the future. It was perfect for my husband and I while we were visiting family.
Staying here in this stunning house in the upper Heights area for 2 weeks was absolutely amazing! I'm a performer on a National tour and it's not everyday that we get to stay in a homely environment. It was huge, clean, comfortable, stylish, in a beautiful and safe neighbourhood, it had everything and made our stay in Houston even better than I could've imagined. We didn't want to leave! Thank you so much for the great hospitality Kara and Jon!
Great experience! I was travelling for work and it was a great house, very clean, super comfortable - I haven't slept that well in weeks and I'm pregnant so that was a HUGE plus. Neighborhood is really cute and I felt very safe. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
