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 half 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.

House Rules

There are two key house rules - no smoking and no pets. Otherwise, please know that my primary motivation for rebuilding and furnishing this guesthouse was to provide a "home away from home" for friends and family. Now, I am also using it to host guests on AirBnB (no other web sites). Given that, I ask that you simply treat the property as you would your own. If I came to your house, I would promise to do the same. THANKS!
