About This Listing
This is the perfect option while you are in the area, whether you're here on business, pleasure, or both!
This is a brand new home, completed in June 2012 so everything is state of the art and energy efficient.
The spacious 3rd floor will be all yours, complete with a bedroom, bathroom, living area and deck.
In the cozy bedroom, there is a full-size bed and in the living area there is a pull-out sofa that converts to a queen size bed.
The deck overlooks the fountain and will be an awesome place to drink your morning coffee or sip a glass of wine in the evening. A light breakfast of yogurt or cereal and fruit is provided as well as coffee or tea.
The space has a mini-fridge, coffee maker and electric tea kettle, but feel free to use the kitchen downstairs with me if you would like something heartier!
WiFi access is provided as is AT&T U-verse television in the living area. If you need it, there is a phone for free local and national long distance calling. Sorry, international calls are not included in the plan.
The geothermal HVAC system provides each floor with its own thermostat for individualized heating and cooling comfort.
The location is ideal!! Located in the heart of the Energy Corridor at the intersection of I-10 and Beltway 8, you are just a mile away from CityCentre, jam-packed with restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
If you're a business traveler, you will also be just minutes away from the energy companies located along I-10 and in the Westchase area. Both George Bush and Hobby airports can be easily accessed via Beltway 8 as well.
The house is located in a gated community on a quite street, so you have something of a sense of being in the country while still maintaining the conveniences of the city. The private gate allows visitors access after dark via a key pad. If you have a car, you will be able to park in my personal garage. The automatic garage door opener also opens that gate after hours. The community includes a jogging trail and is approximately a mile from the 5 mile bike path along Addicks Reservoir.
The rate quoted includes the 17% nightly room tax required by the city, county and state. Sorry, but the city must get its share.
It is a beautiful home and community and I look forward to being your host! Please contact me with any questions.
Interaction with Guests
Since I live in this house I will be present during your stay and available to answer questions or talk as little or as much as you like. Your space will be private to you so if you don't feel like talking to anyone, you are welcome to head up stairs and relax. Alternatively, if you feel like a chat, I usually have no problem thinking of something to say. ;-)
Houston is an automobile town! Though there is a bus stop right outside the gate of the community, riding buses in Houston is not the fastest way to get around. It is highly recommended that you rent a car. Also, my garage is too small for pickup trucks or large SUV's and street parking is limited and discouraged by the community, so please keep that in mind as you plan your reservation.
Other Things to Note
Use of my garage is welcomed. However, pick up trucks and large SUV's may find it difficult to fit in the garage and street parking is limited as well as discouraged by the community. If you are renting a vehicle, please keep this in mind.
The house is a non-smoking facility and definitely no smoking on the deck! Counter tops in bathrooms and kitchen are all granite with marble back splash in the kitchen, As it is a porous stone, please be kind enough to wipe up any spills that could possible stain such as red wine, grease, cream, liquid soap, etc.
Guests may use the kitchen with me. Please wash up and put away dishes, etc., after you use them.
If a second guest will be staying with you, please let me know at the time of booking and please, no unexpected guests after you check in.
If you would like to use the washer and dryer, please ask for instructions and a demonstration on proper use.
AT&T U verse is available for your TV viewing with a wide selection of channels. Pay-per-view is not part of the plan. Please let me know if you order anything through pay-per-view and be prepared to pay extra for your order. You may also use the phone in the space for local or national phone calls.
International calling is not part of the plan. Please let me know if you place any international calls and be prepared to pay for the calls you place.
Barring late flight arrivals, please no check-ins after 10:00 pm.
I need only few words: Excellent and beyond all my expectations!
Everything worked like a Swiss watch, and also the weather was favorable to spend blue moments on the terrace. I will have always warm memories concerning this stay and am grateful to Candace on her personal contribution and commitment. Thumbs up!
I am a travel nurse and have stayed with Candace the past few weeks and will stay again for a few weeks until my contract is up at TX Children's. Candace has made me feel very welcome, the space is very nice and the bed is comfortable. The space is as pictured and described. The garage is very tight and I have a VW Jetta. I love the balcony and the area. There is also plenty of shopping and restaurants near by. It's just nice as a female to have someone around rather than staying in a hotel, etc. It's nice to have some company but also have your own private space. Candace is also a very interesting person and have enjoyed chatting with her. I would highly recommend staying with Candace and her two kitty, fur babies :)
This is my second stay at the space. Its a great space and Candace is a great Host. She is quick to respond to communications. The space is very convenient for City Centre and the Energy Corridor in Houston. Its clean, convenient, safe and secure and I would highly recommend it. Thanks again Candace and see you next time I'm in town!
Fantastic as always. Not only is the location is hard to beat for me personally (since my company office is basically around the corner), but also is Candace' hospitality unmatched in Houston and even beyond. There aren't many AirBnbs where everything is just right but this is one of them. Very happy to stay again.
Thanks, Candace for a great stay. Your place was exactly as pictured in your posting. I enjoyed the spacious living area and the comfy bed! Candace has done an outstanding job of creating a "home away from home" experience. The mini-frig was stocked with yogurt (and granola toppings available), soda and water. Although I didn't use the coffee maker, it was nice to know it was available. I enjoyed being able to park my sedan in the garage. Just like Candace mentioned in her post, large vehicles may not fit. I would gladly book with Candace again!
About the Host, Candace
Hi, I'm Candace! I love traveling as well as meeting new people. I love laughter and good food, reading and good movies, and my cats Teddy Bear and Edith Ann. I also love yoga, cycling and walking but don't like rudeness, yappy dogs, beets or liver.
My favorite quote, "Some people say the glass is half full. Some people say the glass is half empty. I say, "Are you going to drink that?" ;-)
Being from the southern US, hospitality is bred into my bones. I want my guests to feel warm and welcome and yet have a sense of privacy and peace and quite. I work in Commercial Real Estate, that's my day job, so I know Houston better than many native Houstonians. (I have lived here since 1977.) As a result, I can give my guests some great tips on what to do, where to go and how to get there.
My fun job is teaching English as a second language at Lonestar College so I love meeting people from all over the world. If you're a foreign visitor and your English isn't perfect, no worries. We will figure it out. Safe travels and I look forward to welcoming you to my home.
