My place is only a 5 minute walk from the light rail, making downtown easily accessible without the hassle of fighting through traffic or worrying about parking.

You'll get the first floor bedroom, bathroom, and outdoor back patio all to yourself. You're able to enter through the front door or through a private entrance directly into the room from the patio.

The room comes equipped with a TV (antenna, Chromecast, and HDMI cable) and coffee maker.

The space

Once you've booked I'll share with you a customized map detailing what I think are the best places to go in Houston.

Additionally consider looking at my venue's calendar (called "The Secret Group") for the dates you are considering staying as I'd happily comp tickets to any of the shows assuming they aren't sold out.

Guest access

You'll have the whole first floor to yourself as well as access to the kitchen and common area if you'd like. My roommate, girlfriend and I live on the third floor and are all helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

PLEASE NOTE: I am the GM of a local bar and so often I get home very late at night/early in the morning. While I tend to go to sleep after arriving, when I arrive I open and close the garage door which is on the first floor. We will happily provide earplugs and if your schedule is one that starts very early, I will consider parking outside the garage some days, but if you are a light sleeper please take this into consideration.

Interaction with guests

I'm often at home and have a flexible schedule so should be available to greet you when you arrive and answer any questions you may have.

Other things to note

This property was originally listed under my mom's account meaning I couldn't achieve super host with it despite being the primary host. It's now hosted under my account, but you can see a screenshot of the reviews I've gotten in photos!

Even when you travel to unfamiliar places around the world as much as I do you always feel a bit intimidated and lonely in the beginning. I often wish I had a friend I could rely on in each of these places so I don't get lost or in trouble and enjoy the company. Of course he would have a tidy, comfy and stylish room always ready for my visit in a location where cool things are happening every day. He would be there to let you in on some valuable local secrets that you won’t be able find online. After a long day of adventure you are quite happy and even exited to come home where you always feel welcome….. But like everything in life, meeting someone or a place you feel at home like this doesn't come by easily if it does at all. Sometimes you just get lucky though and I feel fortunate to have found a place like that in Houston (I’m a first time visitor) with a nice host who is pretty much who I just described. I would definitely recommend staying with Stephen to any future “lucky” Houston travelers. I don’t think I need to mention the area or the amenities because you can easily find out how fun the area is online and the listing is very accurate and self-explanatory. I will say though, you will just love stumbling upon great restaurants, bars, museums and people by spontaneously exploring the area! Thank you Stephen!
