Private Guesthouse in Montrose

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Yupon St, Houston, TX 77006, United States

The Space

Newly built and fully appointed guesthouse in the heart of the Montrose area in Houston. One bedroom with queen sized bed, fully functional and stocked kitchen, full bath, and sitting area. Wireless internet and cable TV. Complete privacy guaranteed.

Walking distance to dozens of restaurants, bars, and night clubs. Safe and quiet neighborhood that is less than a mile to Kroger grocery store, Walgreens and Starbucks. Just around the block are dozens of vintage clothing shops, resale and antique stores. Walking distance also to Menil Collection museum and Rothko Chapel. A longer walk (or short drive) to the impressive Houston Museum District, Rice University, and Hermann Park and Zoo. Less than one block walk for a bus that goes to Galleria for world-class shopping, indoor ice skating, or buses in the opposite direction for light rail that takes you downtown, to the medical center, or all the way to Reliant Stadium.

If you don't feel like walking or taking the bus, I am only one block from a "Houston bicycle" kiosk (at the corner outside of the Hay Merchant restaurant). This is a wonderful way to tour the city, explore new restaurants, see our beautiful neighborhoods, or get exercise by biking on the paths along Allen Parkway. You'll definitely want to check this out.

My guesthouse is a great place for a weekend escape or an alternative to hotels for your business trip to Houston. Stay at home and enjoy the peace and solitude, or walk down the street and hit the clubs and immerse yourself in this eclectic neighborhood. Food trucks, tattoo parlors, pool halls, and coffee shops. There is fun to be had at every turn!

Ours is the prototypical home away from home. We have a welcoming yard with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. We have a small family dog who spends most of her time indoors, but loves people so don't be surprised if she comes to greet you.

  • I love this place! The location was perfect for us as we were within walking distance from great museums, shops, coffee houses, and anything else we wanted to see or do. The neighborhood is so charming, and the guesthouse is lovely! Very comfortable bed and pillows, functionally and beautifully designed, and with a personal touch that really made us feel welcome. Rich was so helpful in giving a few suggestions on what to see and do while we were there. Staying here really made our weekend getaway very special. I cannot wait to go back!

  • This was a very clean, convenient location which served us well for a quick 3 day trip to Houston. Owner was very helpful and we would certainly stay there again on our next trip. We recommend this highly!

  • One word: Lovely. The space is lovely, Rich and Carl are lovely, the neighborhood is lovely. The guesthouse was peaceful, immaculate, and in an ideal location in Houston. Rich was so on top of all communication and was helpful and kind with anything I needed; but it was also super nice how incredibly private and quiet the space was…like they weren't even around…and like you weren't a mere block from all the fun that Montrose has to offer. I will definitely be staying here again. I highly recommend you check it out, too!

  • Rich was an amazing host! He was available to take me last minute for just one night. Everything was extremely clean and setup nicely. Anytime I am back in Houston I will most defiantly come back here again.

  • Rich and Carl were great hosts and they have a lovely guest house situated in downtown Houston. The guest house has everything you could need for your visit. I'll happily be booking their guest house for my next trip to Houston.

  • Our trip to Houston was all about Work-Work-Work!
    Alas, this charming cottage was a welcome respite after long, hectic days.
    Cozy, quiet and comfortable!
    Rich is a perfect Airbnb host.
    Excellent communication, attention to detail and available
    if we needed anything.
    We were totally giddy over Rich's "Beverage/Snack" Stash!
    Something for everyone and we were over the moon and delighted
    to leave our personal contribution!
    The Montrose neighborhood is very Eclectic - being creative, free spirits we really appreciated the look, feel and diversity of the shops, interesting bars and restaurants. Unfortunately, this trip did not provide us the opportunity to get out and explore, alas, plans are certainly in the works to return....VERY SOON!

  • Rich's private guesthouse was very nice and comfortable. Location is excellent, with good restaurants nearby and close to the medical center.

  • The guesthouse was perfect for what I needed for a busy two week business trip to Houston. For what little social time I had it was close to places and food experiences that were easily reachable. Rich & Carl were very helpful hosts with all of that information. The house is quiet, the bed very comfy and their amenities and hospitality such a joy to receive. I would recommend it and return. Oh and their dog is delightful for anyone who might be concerned with something like that.

  • Rich was great - very accommodating and amiable. The guest house was clean, comfortable and had lots of cute details. The house was within walking distance of a lot of restaurants, stores, and attractions. If I ever go back to Houston, I'll be contacting Rich!

  • My fiance and I were looking for a place to stay on our last night in Houston before moving. I stumbled upon Rich's add and just fell in love. It is within walking distance to great bars and restaurants and very quiet. The apartment is clean, updated and very cozy. I will be traveling back and forth for the next few months and plan on staying here every time.

About
I am a clinical neuroscientist who works in the Texas Medical Center. I have faculty appointments at the Baylor College of Medicine and University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. I spend most of my free time reading books, doing home repairs, and riding my bike or walking on trails and through parks. As a host, I provide a space that is exceptionally clean and overflowing with the basic necessities. I travel a lot for work and have stayed at hundreds of hotels - some great, some horrible. I have learned much from these experiences. I maintain the property myself and take pride in assuring that each guest has a wonderful and carefree stay. I maintain distance for those seeking privacy and who are self-sufficient, but can also be gregarious for those who are new to the area and would appreciate frequent interactions about places to go and things to do. As a guest, I am very quiet and reserved. I am polite and respectful of other people and their homes. When traveling, I am generally looking for time alone to recharge my batteries, to unplug from work, to walk around neighborhoods and try new restaurants, or to go out onto trails and parks and enjoy the great outdoors.
