Outstanding hospitality
5 recent guests complimented Jacob for outstanding hospitality.
Staying in Midtown where you're in walking distance of the light rail which takes you to the NRG stadium, Astrodome, George R. Brown Convention Center, museums, zoo, downtown Houston, bars, restaurants, and more. No car needed at this place.

The space
The heart of downtown, conveniently located near all access to freeways. Just blocks from Megabus/Greyhound you can cab it under 4 minutes to my place or just message me and if I am in town I'll most likely be able to pick you up from the station or the airport. The house is a 3 bed room flat with the AIR BNB bedroom having it's own private bath which is in front of the house by walking through another bedroom which is often unoccupied. If there is beer in the fridge please help yourself. Need to do laundry, you are more than welcome. This is your house for the time being so do what feels comfortable and be yourself. Full kitchen with many tools to cook food. Smoking area is in the back with a patio with a martini table and 3 bar stools. Have you got friends in Houston and would like to have them over? Just give me a heads up. I keep the bathroom stocked with clean towels and new soap for new guests. If I'm in town and you'd like to be driven around, I'd be glad to show you Houston. The house is very laid back and relaxed. When I'm gone, my room mate will take care of you. There are many movies for you to choose from if you'd like to stay in for the night. HULU, Netflix, and Comedy Dynamics is also available. The queen size bed itself will ALWAYS have fresh clean sheets and is super comfortable to sleep in.

Guest access
What ever you want. Just ask.
wifi, kitchen, Netflix, HULU, Comedy Dynamics, possible concert/comedy tickets, movies, NES, possible pick up and drop offs from airport (if I'm not busy).

Other things to note
Rarely there is anyone here from morning to 7pm. The place is yours. From 7pm on everyone is is their bedrooms. Super relaxed household.

I am a film maker studying to receive my masters in biology. I study zoology and have a vital role in the Houston community by setting up events. I write for a newspaper so I'm always on the adventure for something new so there is always something to talk about. My house is set up like a museum from movie props, paintings, and artifacts from around the world dating from 400 million years ago to yesterday's news.
