Exquisitely appointed and complete with perfect reviews. Offering designer decor and quaint, quiet surroundings.
You have DirectTV, DVD's, and place to play music should you want to take a load off on our comfortable sofa.
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. In LA, this bungalow would go for $3000/mo!
You have a front and back door, laundry room, driveway and street parking, recycling and trash, shower and tub.
We have an on-site property manager and the owner is blocks away. We love to give restaurant, bar, & entertainment input, and prefer to meet our guests personally. We are a young couple living and working in the neighborhood. Keys will be left for you if we aren't able to greet you personally. WELCOME!
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, just ask and we can probably make arrangements (the wood floors are pretty nice so thats an issue).
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.
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.
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.
No parties, no smoking, no animals without permission. No staying forever and making me kick you out because you love it so much!!
Wonderful stay in a great area! This place is beautifully appointed; we felt so at ease in this lovely bungalow. Would stay there again for sure.
We loved this place! Very comfortable and quiet. We had lots of great, walkable dining options and food delivery options. We stayed 9 days and would definitely stay again. Thanks!
Bowie's bungalow was adorable. And spotless. And he left a nice basket of goodies for us upon arrival. There's a great coffee shop right around the corner, and ubers were never more than 2 minutes away. Bed was super comfortable and linens were high quality. Really, everything was great! The lot across the street appears to have recently been reduced to a dirt pile, but can't imagine that will last long, rest of the street is very cute. Would stay again in a minute!
We had a wonderful time at the house! Montrose is a great area. The house looks just like the photos, bed is comfy and the kitchen had everything you need.
We had a wonderful stay here while in Houston. The location is great and the house is adorable. We really appreciated the comfort of having a whole house to ourselves, rather than just a hotel room. We would definitely stay here again on another trip to Houston.
Bowie was an amazing host. My last night there he even invited me out with his friends - had a fantastic time. The little house is perfect. It had everything I needed and super charming. Montrose is a fun area with lots of dining and drinking options. Thanks Bowie! Will be back to Houston 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!
