Kate was amazing. When we arrived the a/c wasn't working. Within an hour Kate had a maintenance person there. He fixed the a/c quickly and voile' - cold air. The apartment was clean and welcoming. Kitchen was stocked with everything needed to make our stay awesome. The bed was very comfortable. The view was awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will look for Kate's rentals in the future.
Kate's place was cozy and comfortable. Great location. Kate responded to our various requests quickly and smoothly. Thanks Kate!
Apartment was lovely and clean, both beds were comfy and the size was great. All appliances were new and worked well. We were down on memorial weekend so it was quiet downtown, but other times of the year I'm sure it will be more happening. Check in and check out was super easy and Kate was lovely to deal with.
Very central place in Downtown. The lobby personelle were very helpful and the place is immaculate and quite comfortable. Amazing balcony! Very flexible in accomodating my needs and had everything I wanted. Felt like I was staying at a 5 star hotel but better because of the space and the freedom to cook.
The apartment was as expected: clean, spacious, with wifi, and clear instructions for arrival.
This was my first use of Airbnb for business, and it was a great experience. Kate was easy to work with and responsive to questions, and all the information provided was exact and extremely helpful. The apartment was exactly as described and provided a terrific experience. Only thing to keep in mind is that the garage has a vertical limit of 5'11"--my rental car was too big (Toyota Sequoia), but even still there was ample street parking next door and it was fine. Loved the experience. Thanks!
The instructions are clear. The building is within walking distance to the convention center. There is a convenience/fast food store downstairs. The accommodations are nice. There is a parking spot which is convenient. Kate is quick to respond.
The main issue is that there were pests (roaches) during the stay. Kate was notified and was responsive.
The neighbors are noisy. There was an argument in the middle of the night that self-resolved, and therefore the number provided in the guest manual was not called.
Overall, I did not have a good experience because of the pests.

About the Host, Kate
One summer years ago I discovered airbnb while traveling across Europe. I had really nice experiences with my hosts so I decided I would try out hosting when I got back home. I listed my condo and immediately had bookings, in fact I had so many bookings that I decided to turn it into a business. What a lucky break for me. Airbnb has been amazing and I've been able to travel the world, as my business has given me a lot of flexibility and free time.
I owe everything to one book that has changed my life completely, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Let me know if you're a fan. I love positive people and especially love to hear about positive experiences.
Before traveling, I do extensive research on where to stay. I prefer modern style private homes over hotels and would only book a hotel if I had no other option. One of my favorite places of all time is the Desert Nomad House in Tucson. I got to stay there before it was sold. What an experience! It is a Rick Roy designed home in the desert of Arizona, but more like a piece of art constructed of three boxes. One box was the living room, one was the study and the other was the bedroom and bathroom. I'd give anything to go back!
I love photography, food, wine, and meeting new people. The perks of being an airbnb host is that you're constantly meeting new people, people you wouldn't have otherwise met from all over the world.
When I'm not traveling, I split my time between Houston and London so that I can be with my family & friends and my husband. Most of the time I am traveling overseas but don't worry. I have an international plan on my mobile and I have staff to take care of you when I am not around.
