About the property

Three Bedroom, Two Full Bathrooms, Large Master Suite in The Heights

This 1935 Craftsman design bungalow was restored to historical aesthetic accuracy. Unlike the bungalows of old, this space has 1678 sq. ft. of centrally air conditioned living room, modern kitchen, laundry room w/washer & dryer, 3 bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. Beautiful master suite has king bed, glass surround shower, dual sinks, and tub. Front guest room with queen bed and middle room with 2 twin beds. Living room & bedrooms equipped with flat screen TV's and high speed wireless internet.

Fully restored and historically correct, this house is charming and comfortable. Privacy and protection from the sun is assured with 2" blinds on all main windows, yet the window and door frames are original. Crown molding adorns the ceiling and wood baseboard the floor.

A modern fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances: side-by-side refrigerator (in-door ice/water dispenser), garbage disposal, dishwasher, microwave, range and oven, plus Mr. Coffee, 4 slice toaster, electric teapot, rice cooker, and blender (margaritas anyone?). Laundry room with washer and dryer, iron, and ironing board is adjacent to the kitchen.

Large flat screen Smart TV's in living room and bedrooms hooked up to AT&T U-verse U300 fiber optic entertainment plus internet for your favorite Netflix or YouTube shows. Go anywhere in the house with your phone, laptop, or tablet connected to the high speed wireless network.

When bedtime arrives, enjoy hotel quality Sealy pillow-top mattresses and choice of pillows for a great night's sleep. Bathrooms have hair dryers provided and all the nice, soft, Egyptian cotton towels you need. Bath soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion are all provided.

If you smoke, step out the back door to the large wooden deck where a table and chairs awaits you. Got steaks, hot dogs, or hamburger? There's a gas grill there too. You may be entertained by the frolicking antics of several squirrels who make the back yard their home. But even if you don't smoke, a glass of wine or a thirst quenching Texas beer can accompany you while you enjoy the freshest air you will ever find in a city as large as Houston.

We love to share this house with you and we hope you enjoy your stay. We really appreciate you letting us know if we can make it better and, of course, we love your happy and satisfied reviews. Relax, enjoy your stay in Houston, and come back when you can!

About George and Dina Smith

Hi, We are Dina and George and we have traveled through Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, Mexico, Canada, and the USA and stayed in many types of accommodations. We love the luxury of the 4 - 5 Star Hotels as well as the other more budget conscious places along the way. We want to provide the best balance in the range of desirable accommodations and this includes clean, modern, comfortable living along with the charm of a historical place. The Houston Heights and this newly remodeled architecturally historical bungalow is one of our favorites.

Why George and Dina Smith chose Houston Heights

Looks like an old house with brand new roof, siding, and paint (that is just what the outside is!). But the inside is a beautiful meld of old and new with modern HVAC, new electrical, new plumbing, modern appliances, and all the comforts of a modern home. Situated in the West Heights of Houston, this home provides quick access to wonderful restaurants, high end nightclubs, and exciting downtown Houston! Everything "Houston" is within about 20 minutes!

What makes this house unique

In 1935, a house was considered large at about 1000 square feet of living space and needed a lot of windows to stay cool. We added 678 more square feet to this one by building onto the back. Our architect worked with the historical society to keep this house within the original 1935 design criteria but also built-in all the modern hi-tech features to make this house a unique and comfortable experience.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well stocked with basic necessities. The beds were super comfortable. Conveniently located near downtown, grocery store and restaurants. We would love to stay again if we return to Houston.

Cute and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful trip to Houston to visit our daughter who found this cute home in the Heights where we all stayed. We loved it! We found the house to be very clean and convenient to all the Houston sights we wanted to see. Tons of space here for a family. Kitchen was well-equipped and, again, clean. We had a great stay!

Great home had everything we needed plus extra. Great location to supermarket.

  • 5 of 5

Location was great with supermarket just around the corner. For those like us who didn’t have a car Uber was the way to go. Downtown approx 15 min drive away. FYI the mattress in front room closest to st has roll together possibly needs replacing and fan in twin room very noisy. We had a great stay so thank you very much.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This house is easily my favorite HomeAway property. It is adorable and is equipped with everything needed to feel right at home. The street is quiet and is reasonably close to many of the attractions we planned to visit. The owners are great to work with - very accommodating and quick to respond to all of our questions. I highly recommend this property! We’d love to stay here again.
