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!

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 was amazing! She greeted me on the first night, helped me get parked, and familiarized me with the house and the history of the property. I immediately felt welcomed and was grateful for the information as it makes for a great story. The apartment is beautiful and very comfortable. The improvements she has made really make the apartment hard to leave in the morning. One of the nicest surprises was the stocked fridge and bathroom. I had forgotten my toothpaste, but she had me covered. And in the morning, the english muffins were a real treat. Highly recommend this location and getting to know the host!
Just one word -- PERFECT! As always, this apartment was fresh, spotless and very welcoming! Great location, close to everything. Fresh fruit, snacks, and drinks at the ready. Denise is an awesome hostess and very friendly. We will ALWAYS stay here when we are in Houston. Thanks for a great visit!
Denise welcomed us with open arms and a great smile. She made check-in sweet and simple. The apartment is so adorable. The description was very accurate. The pictures said it all. The apartment had everything we need. Denise left us some fruit and it was a great touch because I had a snack on the way to work. The fridge and entire apartment was well-stocked. We also cooked a meal and only had to get food. The manual that was left in the apartment was very helpful because we ordered Thai food and it was great. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I got the best rest during this stay. During our stay at the apartment we had our privacy. I only seen Denise during check-in and my boyfriend met Jack a few days later. The neighborhood is so cute and warm. The large trees that lined the neighborhood make you forget you are right in the heart of a big city such as Houston. I would be back to visit Denise and Jack. This was my 1st airbnb and it was perfect. I recommend this apartment to people looking for a stay-cation (like us) or anyone visiting the city.
Adorable is accurate. This apartment is perfect and efficient. The charming and historic tree-lined street is dark at night, making it hard to see any house numbers, but Denise and Jack waved me into the driveway. They are friendly and accommodating. They left some provisions which were appreciated since I arrived late and hungry. Having plenty of luxurious towels, wonderful sheets, super comfortable bed, close to everything all made my stay lovely. It is obvious that Denise and Jack take their hosting role seriously. Houston is a surprisingly hip and beautiful city. I enjoyed everything about the apartment, the host, the neighborhood, the city. It rained most of the time, but even that was ok. The only problem was that we only had a weekend to be there. Highly highly recommend both this apartment and this city.
Denise & Jack were wonderful hosts, from the moment we arrived they made us feel welcome. The apartment is exactly as described and in a beautiful neighbourhood. Denise had kindly left us some treats in the fridge to make us feel at home as well as some fresh fruit for us to enjoy.
Whilst in Houston we spent our time exploring the local area making use of the bikes mentioned in the description, jack even made sure the tyres were pumped up for us before which i thought was a nice gesture. One of the best things about this place is the bed, WOW!! it is so amazing and comfortable!! Perfect for a long relaxing sleep if you have traveled from far to get here.
Denise & Jack were always on hand to give us advice on where to go when needed but also allowed us our privacy. The only downside is that we wish we could have stayed longer as 2 nights was nowhere near enough time to see the beautiful city and sample all it has to offer. We will definitely be back, and when we do we will be staying here, we really cannot recommend this apartment enough.
We loved this apartment! We were greeted by Denise and given a quick tour. The fridge and entire apartment was well-stocked. The Montrose neighborhood was great for walking to restaurants and also close to downtown when we went to a Rockets game. Denise and Jack were very respectful hosts. There was lots of useful information for us in the apartment and we would definitely stay here again. Thanks!
The Adorable Apartment certainly lives up to its name in every respect. The hosts, Denise and Jack, are warm and gracious. They even stock the fridge with pop, water, ground coffee, fresh fruit, scones, juice, milk and other little touches (love the coffeemaker!) that make it seem like home. The apartment is richly furnished, done with good taste and comfort in mind. We loved the wifi and took full advantage each morning of having coffee and checking email on the outside porch. It was great to be on a quiet street and in walking distance to all the wonderful stores, restaurants, museums and parks of the Montrose area. This will be our first choice on every visit back to see the grandkids.
My husband and I have lived in the Montrose area for 10 years, we have taken great pride in our home by refurbishing it to it's original beauty. We enjoy travelling all over the world, great food and wine lovers!
We enjoy meeting new people and creating long lasting friendships. We decided to open our Adorable Garage Apartment to Airbnb, because we feel our neighborhood is worth experiencing.
