About the property

This Custom Decorated Studio Is The Perfect Mid-town Retreat!

SHORT DESCRIPTION: This beautiful cottage house has been custom decorated for a cozy comfortable stay of any length. It includes a full kitchen, remodeled bath with large shower, cable TV & Wi/Fi. It is centrally located only minutes from downtown, NRG, Med. Ctr, Rice University and Museums. There is one queen bed with a high definition flat screen. The kitchen includes high end appliances with granite countertops. We provide every amenity you will need including coffee maker (and coffee/cream/sugar), blender, toaster, pots, plates, etc. This is NOT someone's personal home, it has been designed for the person that would like a high end hotel stay experience without the cost or hassle.

The Cottage House is in a gated property. It sits behind the main house/duplex that is also on this VRBO as listing numbers xxxxxx and xxxxxx. We often lease the entire property for large groups, weddings and events. Please contact me for more details.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION: Access to the Cottage requires climbing a flight of stairs. It has a gated drive and is on a tree lined street, with professional landscaping. We have Smart Locks on the door and you will receive your personal code for 24 hour access. You won't have to share keys, just give each person in your party the code. It includes a Queen bed with a flat screen TV, includes cable TV and high speed internet Wi-Fi. We try to take cleanliness to the next level. We are very particular about making sure your experience will rival any 4 or 5 star hotel. Its centrally located with quick access to downtown, medical center, museums, NRG, Toyota, Soccer and other stadiums, Galleria and Universities. This is NOT someone's home. You won't have to "work around" someone else's living space and personal things. We are in the business of providing you and your group with a better than home experience. We have tried to mimic every detail you would find in an expensive Hotel Suite, with the amenities of a home.

GUEST ACCESS: Guests can access the property 24 / 7. We use a smart lock system. You have your own private code that is active only for your stay. There is private parking for one care and plenty of free street parking.

You will also be provided a remote for the gated entrance. Please leave it in the unit when you check-out.

We are also close to the metro service and light rail.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS: My business partner and I are available at any time to answer questions, resolve issues and provide any assistance to make your stay memorable. We have owned the property for over 2 decades and are so excited to share it with you!

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: The neighborhood is warm and cozy like the house. It is very diverse and housing market has tripled due to the convenient location and the quality of the homes. I DO want to disclose that this is a "transitioning" neighborhood. Although we have a gated property, for 30 years it was not gated and we have never had a security issue. The community is made up of diverse home owners with the average home ranging from $300K to $850K. There is a neighborhood bar a few blocks away whose patrons park near our street and can be a little noisy on weekends.

My friend and I found this little apartment delightful. Five stars!

  • 5 of 5

Everything one could possibly need was delightful. Neighbors tend to be loud, but neighborhood seems safe for the most part. It’s a bit of a walk to the nearest light rail station, so I would suggest everyone drive anywhere. We loved that there was a full kitchen in the establishment and the shower was beautiful!

Clean studio with all necessary tools for a getaway. Still will need such things as toothbrush and personal hygiene items. Thanks Melanie!

The location and quality was great!

  • 5 of 5

The space was great for my daughter and I to stay in while she competed at a ballet competition at UofH. My only issue was the group renting the front house blocked the drive way. After explaining to them that I would be in and out and had a young daughter they parked on the street with no issues.
