Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Joel's place was great- clean, new and comfortable. I especially enjoyed the little garden and terrace and the easy accessibility to downtown. When I'm back to Houston, I'll definitely want to stay here again.

    March 2014
  • Our stay at Joel's house was wonderful. It was quiet clean and convenient to our business in Houston. Joel was a considerate host.

    February 2014
  • Joel was a fantastic host! The room offered is the downstairs of their multi-level townhome. Very comfortable bed and linens and direct access to the yard. We loved the restaurant recommendations! Would definitely stay here again!

    February 2014
  • Joel was a great host for a great place. The location is super convenient for downtown Houston and easy to get and get out. I'll be sure to stay here again. Clean, good value, private and comfortable. Thanks Joel!

    February 2014
  • Fabulous place !! Great space and very central. We were travelling with our dog and loved that there is a fenced backyard she could use!
    Really great bed, linens, towels.. This is a quality stay that we really enjoyed. Joel is really helpful with local knowledge that is a plus.

  • Joel's place it just as described. I stayed here for a professional conference. I was not sure about walking to the convention center, but it worked out great! The room is just as it is pictured. The bed is comfy and the bath towels are nice and thick. Joel was timely in all of his communication and provided bottle water which I appreciated because I'm a big water drinker.

    October 2013
  • Very clean and cozy accommodations. Very friendly and helpful host. This was my first experience using airbnb and it was a great one!

    October 2013
  • I'm a host on Airbnb so I'm perhaps pickier than some guests.

    Houston doesn't have zoning laws. It's a bit bizarre for people from other areas. There's a convention center next baseball stadium which is a few blocks from a railroad yard which is next to upscale condos. All walking distance from downtown. Very odd!

    So the trip to Joel and Nathan's will make you wonder where you're staying .... When you get there, it's fine!!

    WONDERFUL perk that they give you access to the garage.

    The room is very clean and well appointed. The bath has fluffy towels and a nice shower. Nice touch to have shampoo, conditioner, and bath gel.

    There's a fridge but no stores nearby so you might want to bring something for breakfast.

    Joel and Nathan are quiet and low-key. Adorable dachshund!

  • Really nice suite in townhouse, separate floor from rest of house. Private, big closet, beautiful bathroom, outside access, separate climate control. Joel and Nathan were incredibly accommodating and helped with small conveniences (tea in the morning, garment steamer, etc). One thing to note - even though the house is only a mile away from downtown, the townhouse is in a developing area of an industrial neighborhood. I didn't feel unsafe, but there are not many shops/restaurants around. Some taxi drivers had a hard time finding it - get your GPS out to help! On Joel's recommendation, I used the 'Hail A Cab' app, and I had no problem getting taxis to pick me up or drop me off. Regardless, if I were going back to Houston, I would definitely stay again!

    September 2013
  • As always, so great to stay with them. They added a bedside lamp with outlets in it to conveniently charge my iPhone and iPad. LOVE that! Now I just need their dog to stay downstairs and snuggle me.
