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.

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

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!
