I also provide continental breakfast items upon your arrival, fruit, croissants or bagels, juice, coffee for you to enjoy during your stay in the apartment.
We have had numerous requests if we allow pets? The Amenities page states that we do NOT accept pets? We have a lot of patients that visit the Medical Center (MD Anderson Cancer Center) for treatments and our apartment needs to remain a pet free zone on their behalf! If you kennel your dog or cat at a pet hotel close by we would love to have you stay with us! There are numerous wonderful pet hotels in the Montrose area!
Come and enjoy the hospitality of a historic Texas home, with very nice hosts. You will be happy that you stayed here and we will welcome you back year after year!
In addition to the apartment there is access to a washer & dryer for their convenience, with all the necessary washing detergent, etc. You will also have an outside balcony that you can enjoy the outdoors with also having Wi-Fi available!

We love to meet you at check-in and make you comfortable but after that you can have all the privacy you need!
We were actually written up in the Wall Street Journal as a top 10 walking neighborhood in the country! We are in a historic district and Clark Gable used to live in our home before becoming famous!
We are close to the Metro-Rail which is within walking distance and you can access the NRG Stadium and thru the Museum District to the Medical Center and into Downtown Houston!
No smoking allowed in the apartment!
If you leave for an extended period of time to please turn off the A/C unit, this is only if it is not unbearably hot here, please just turn it down to low! It is a small apartment and will cool off quickly!
The garbage cans outside of the garage the two black ones are for trash and the green garbage can is for Recyclables, we recycle everything, glass, newspapers, magazines, plastic, we do not have to separate any of these things!
Denise and Jack provided a perfect apartment, exactly like the pictures.
The apartment itself was great, but worth mentioning most of all is how welcome Denise and Jack made us, they were very helpful and sccommdating.
Denise and Jack also provided the essentials for a comfortable stay - a well stocked pantry, fridge and bathroom, which was very surprising and greatly appreciated.
We would definitely stay again!
The space was wonderful! It was super clean, the location was great, and everything was thoughtfully laid out and considered. Denise thought of everything to make the stay comfortable and easy. If I'm in Houston, I'll be staying here again.
"Adorable" IS the word! It applies to the lovely little apartment, to the amenities included and even to the hosts Denise & Jack! They made me feel welcome and were available to answer any questions. The walking friendly neighborhood was delightful. A large variety of restaurants, stores, museums & shops are within easy walking distance. I look forward to visiting the adorable apartment and hosts again and again.
Upon arrival Denise & Jack had the A/C on so the unit was cool & ready for me. True to the photos posted. A perfect little space with modern appliances & finishings. The kitchen is pretty much a full kitchen which was great even though I only had cereal & fruit there, which btw they had fresh fruit, eggs, milk, OJ, soda, water, bagels & cream cheese. The bathroom had I forgotten an amenity they had it, extremely good experience. The area is within walking distance to some great coffee shops, restaurants, bars & the museum district. When I visit H-town again I hope to get this little gem of a spot back again. Denise & Jack are super-friendly & I hope to spend more time with them in the future!
This apartment exceeded expectations. This place covered all the bases: It was perfectly located for all the places we wanted to see (Rothko Chapel, Menil Collection, Museum of Fine Arts, Contemporary Art Gallery Houston...) and there were lots of great places nearby to eat and drink. The apartment is exactly as pictured and Denise and Jack were warm and friendly and very easy to communicate with. On top of all of this the kitchen was stocked with fresh fruit, eggs, juice, English muffins and peanut butter! A fantastic stay!
What a wonderful retreat space! After driving for many hours from Northern California, I was extremely grateful to land at this cozy apartment! Denise & Jack are lovely and gave me a kind Texan welcome! The apartment is beautiful & the bed is extremely comfortable. It's stocked with extras and in a great location!!! An awesome home away from home! I look forward to staying here again soon!
