About this listing

Luxurious home in the heart of Houston. Pick some mint leaves from the garden for your cocktail and relax while watching the sunset over the Houston skyline on the rooftop deck.

The space

Welcome to Casa Mimosa! Our 3000 sq ft home has three bedrooms each with brand new Beauty Rest mattresses. Each bedroom has a private bathroom. We have a nicely equipped gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The view of the wine cellar adds ambiance to the space but the door remains locked. The living room has 14ft ceilings and a lot of windows that make the space airy and bright. There is plenty of comfortable seating in front of the fireplace. The dining room is perfect for dining but also a great workspace to set up your computer and spread out. You're welcome to use our full size washer and dryer. There is a 2 (compact) car attached garage with 2 car driveway in front.

The best part of the home though, is our rooftop deck. The pictures speak for themselves, but I love to go up there to read a book or sip a glass of wine while the sun sets. Our edible garden is pretty amazing too. Feel free to pick as much as you can eat.

Guest access

Access is to the entire house, garden and rooftop deck. The wine cellar and an owners closet on the first floor remain locked with no guest access.

Interaction with guests

I will coordinate with you to let you in. I work near by so if you need anything from 8-5 I'm close by. When not staying at Casa Mimosa I'm in the suburbs, 45 minutes away.

Other things to note

Our home is professionally cleaned before each guest arrives. We have all the amenities that you would find at the St. Regis like plenty of soft towels, bath toiletries, hair dryers, fast wifi, and coffee.

Airbnb guests are so considerate. I'm always amazed at how well you all treat my home. Most guests make the beds, clean the kitchen, put the used towels in the laundry room, and even take out the trash. Thank you to everyone who has treated my home like that of a dear friend. I appreciate your efforts so much!

This place was awesome! Had a weekend getaway, for 3 of us, and it was great that we all had a separate bed/bath. The living/dining area was warm, beautiful and inviting. And I cannot say enough about the gorgeous kitchen, which even encouraged me to prepare dinner the first night of our stay. And even with the Houston summer heat, the rooftop deck was a great place to hang late at night/early morning. AND, it was close to shops, tons of restaurants and nightlife, all at an awesome price. Crystal was very responsive to any inquiries that we had. I DEFINITELY would book this property again!!

This is a beautiful home in a great location. The home is spotless, very comfortable, lots of natural light and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The kitchen, living and deck area provided a perfect place for our group to gather and visit. There are plenty of very good restaurants and lots of shopping nearby. It also has easy access to major freeways and downtown, as well as being central enough to access The Heights, Galleria area and West U. Crystal met us upon arrival to show us around. Although we did not need her for anything during our stay, she was quick and easy to communicate with throughout. Thank you very much for offering such a lovely home and making our stay great!

Crystal's Casa Mimosa was our first stop on our road trip from Houston to New Orleans. We stayed there for two nights, and we could not have had a better start at our vacation. The house is unbelievable. It is even more beautiful than the photos - and the photos are stunning! Crystal greeted us and showed us around the house and she gave us great tips about the neighborhood. She had even picked some fresh tomatoes for us from the beautiful edible garden. She is a wonderful host! The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet and it was the perfect location for us. Close to "everything". The interior of the house is flawless and delicate, from the bottom to the top, and we enjoyed the atmosphere of the house and the beautiful roof top terrance very much. The bed is by the way the most comfortable one I have ever slept in. We will strongly recommend this house to any visitors to Houston, both groups of friends and families and couples. We loved it!

I grew up overseas which got me traveling early and I never stopped. I've been to 45 countries at last count. Thailand, UAE, and Turkey are a couple of my recent favorites.
