The space

Full House with Yard, ya'll!! L-shape sectional, dining table for 4, full kitchen with everything you need including herbs, olive oil etc. We ask that guests replace what they use or leave a note as to what is running low. This is SUPER well kept, and we only want guests that appreciate the finer details.

You have a front and back door, laundry room, driveway and street parking, recycling and trash, shower with bath and full kitchen. We have super fast wifi.

Montrose is like Austin. You can bike, walk, ride, and see Houston in all its different iterations. Artists, professionals, yuppies and hippies all mixed in together. Some of Montrose still has its shady side, but LUCKY YOU our street has virtually none of those problems. I never locked my car when I parked here, because the only traffic down this street is people I know live here. Its a real gem.

There ARE buses, but no one does that here. Cabs are cheap, and we now have UBER.

Coffee Shop literally 100 yards away. Food Truck too. You can park on the street or in the driveway. If you have a pet, you must ask permission and you will be assessed a pet fee on top of your rental fee.

Guest access

You will be given a key code with instructions on how to enter the property. I will probably not be meeting you directly.
You have access to a wonderful neighborhood on a quiet street. Montrose has a walkability rating of 79% and a biking rating of 78%. Access to 40+ restaurants within walking distance, Metro bus stop, and the Buffalo Bayou just blocks away.

Interaction with guests

I interact mainly via text and email. I will not bother you during your stay, and we may not meet at all unless you need something. I am blocks away, and will be around the property making sure the maintenance is kept up. But I won't be bugging ya'll.

The neighborhood

Montrose is the most walkable neighborhood in Houston. Its young, diverse, hip, and close to everything you need (medical center, downtown, parks, restaurants, and I-10 and HWY 59 (I-69). This is the center of Houston, and the cultural epicenter.

Getting around

Yes. Montrose is super walkable, but I also offer the convenience of off street parking in my driveway. We also recommend ūber.

Other things to note

This house was build in the 1920's, so with its character and charm comes quaintness and the qualities that come with all old homes.

We enjoyed Bowie's cottage for a one- night stay in Houston. It was centrally located and very comfortable. There were thoughtful amenities in the kitchen and the decor was lovely. It's the perfect size for a couple or family with one child.

The house was great and was exactly what we needed for our weekend getaway to Houston. The location was perfect and was located in a cute neighborhood with restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay here again!

Awesome cottage in a great location! Had a wonderful stay at Bowie's place and everything was exactly as described. Comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen, easy check-in and fast/effective communication with Bowie. Location was perfect - Montrose area is cute, artsy and walkable - a nice escape from some of the other more bustling Houston neighborhoods. I was able to walk to the Whole Foods, CVS, shops and restaurants in the area, as well as jog around all the neighborhood streets. Bowie was a great host. Would highly recommend this cottage!!

Bowie's house was beautiful. It was very clean and well decorated. The bed was also super soft and comfy. His place is in a great location in one of the only walkable areas in Houston. Our original host cancelled on us unexpectedly and Bowie was very nice and communicative when my partner and I contacted him frantically looking for a place to stay at the last minute. I would stay here again.

I'm Bowie: World traveller, business owner, fitness enthusiast and former athlete. I LOVE meeting new people and building new relationships. I consider myself a style aficionado and as such hope to offer that to my guests just as I seek that out in places I travel. That being said, I'm just as happy staying in a cabana with sand floors in Costa Rica as I would be in a world-class resort. I think the best things in life, including traveling, are authentic. If you are in Houston, I'd love to have you stop in, and I'd love to give you my input on some of the local flavor. Thanks!
