Other things to note
I like to say, "We've thought of everything", when describing the amenities of Cottage 313. This home used to be MY home, and I want it to feel like YOUR home while staying here. If we have missed something that guests think should be provided, please let us know and we'll add it!

When staying at the house, you are less than a mile from the mecca of Downtown Houston; but you won't feel like that at all. It's so peaceful & quiet here and just steps away from the heart of everything in Houston.

*High chair

Houston, Texas, United States

Houston's East End is a vibrant Historic community, filled with great restaurants, public art, parks, community buildings, and lots of private family homes. The East End is quickly becoming one of the hottest neighborhoods in Houston! Cottage 313 is one of the few surviving Victorian cottages in Houston's historic East End area. Guests can easily walk to many eateries in the area!

Built in 1930, Cottage 313 is located directly behind Our Lady of Guadalupe Church (c1911), one of Houston's oldest Catholic churches. The neighborhood is full or restaurants and parks and is accessible by all of Houston's major highways. Our central location means that you're always close to your destination!

Talento Bilingue de Houston is just two blocks away on Jensen Street, bringing a variety of theater, arts, music, dance, and other cultural events to the East End. Visitors can walk to the newly renovated Guadalupe Plaza Park and enjoy downtown views, beautiful water fountain, and splash pad for kids. There is a street fair/market held at the Esplanade on Navigation every weekend, and plenty of BCycle rental locations to explore the city via bicycle!

If you love local grub, grab a burger at the Houston-famous Champburger or authentic Tex-Mex at The Original Ninfa's on Navigation Blvd or El Tiempo. New restaurants are opening along Navigation Blvd every month!

Cottage 313 is close to everything in Houston and you'll love staying right in the middle of it all.

Come as a Stranger, Remain forever a friend~ I grew up in New England, working in Energy I eventually found myself in Houston, Texas, over five years ago! I am very outgoing & adventurous, love to travel, thus why I am here on AirBNB. So in 2011 & again I 2014 I gave hosting a shot so I can meet more people traveling like myself & instantly was hooked! Over 2 years of amazing memories of sharing time with guests from around the world and now 5 years of managing other properties. From helping with a marriage proposal, surprise birthday party with fireworks, countless meals shared along with laughter, sunrises & nightcaps with sunsets. Now, through some fantastic friends, I have the fortune to manage a portfolio of properties in and around Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Fairfield Bay, Arkansas & Playa Del Carmen Mexico. It’s my commitment to provide an amazing experience while making you as comfortable as possible. Whether you are here on business or pleasure, I sincerely hope you get the most of the serenity & comfort our accommodations have to offer. If there's anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable please don't hesitate to ask! I have two mottos, "Never A Dull Moment" (and Airbnb ceases to amaze me, in a good way) & "The Evening Has It's Plans For Us, We Simply Need To Arrive" To my space becoming an experience to remember!~ See all of my listings by visiting: https://www.airbnb.com/users/998462/listings
