Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Furnished guest room near Buffalo Bayou. Close to downtown Houston, art museums and universities. Walking distance to West Gray shopping center. Personal coffee/tea tray in guest area. Great location and privacy. Full use of shared kitchen and washer/dryer. Covered parking. Bus stop nearby. Perfect spot for a single student or business traveler (it's a very quiet neighborhood, and the space is not large enough for families.) No smoking or pets please.

Kate was a wonderful host. I stayed with her for 5 weeks and had a great experience. She made sure I had everything I needed and really made me comfortable in her home. Her house is in a great location and I would definitely stay with Kate again if I return to Houston.

Kate was a fantastic host! She was wonderful to chat with when my busy schedule allowed and was incredibly thoughtful. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Great place to stay in a nice house with a pleasant host. Nice residential area close to downtown Houston and with all amenities near by. Near Bufallo Bayou park with its famous bat colony. Definitely recommended!

Kate’s home is an expression of her inner self. It’s beautiful, sophisticated and warm. Kate made me feel welcome before I had even stepped onto the property. I wish I had more time with Kate but this has to be, hands down, the best AirBnB property for solo travellers in Houston…

Kate and her place are super. The accommodation is well-spaced and comfortable. Pretty trees outside windows in the bedroom and bath. Two minute walk to Buffalo Bayou Park. Awesome place!

Couple seeking a quiet, tidy student renter. We have two very friendly dogs, and the house is warm and welcoming. Covered parking; W/D, shared kitchen. Prefer renting to a woman. Non-smokers only please.
Interaction with guests
Always available by phone, text or email. I live onsite, but in another wing of the house. Renters and I may cross paths in the kitchen, but I don’t cook much, so I generally won’t be in your way.
