SO CLOSE TO ALL THINGS HOUSTON!!!!

The Bungalow is a freshly remodeled 1930's era cottage, conveniently located in the prestigious inner-loop neighborhood of Bellaire. 3.9 miles from NRG Stadium and within four miles or less of the Houston the world-famous Galleria, NRG Stadium, OTC, the Texas Medical Center and MD Anderson.

Much of the original character of the house remains, with crown molding and hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen has been tastefully re-done with custom cherry cabinets and high end appliances, including a Thermador range for those who enjoy cooking.

About Sabrine Murphy

We live in a rural community about 35 minutes south of Houston. We find that as our daughter has become more involved in school activities, we are able to spend less and less time at our cottage in town. VRBO allows us to rent the home until she goes off to college, when we are able to once again spend time there.

Sabrine Murphy purchased this bungalow in 1996

Why Sabrine Murphy chose Texas

Quiet, safe neighborhood. Great location inside the loop, close to everything.

What makes this bungalow unique

World class dining a short ride away. Easy access to the medical center, entertainment venues, sporting events. Great shopping!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This quaint bungalow is nestled quietly among big city life. It is convenient to everything you need in Houston, and yet you do not know you are in the middle of a big city when the back door closes. You will truly feel like you are at home. This home has been furnished nicely. It has a fully equipped kitchen plus they have provided high quality linens for both beds and the bathroom. The owners were very accommodating and worked with us on arrival and departure dates very closely. I was not disappointed and will go back for a stay on our next trip to Houston.

Great home in a wonderful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely, clean home for a month with my husband and two teenage children. We enjoyed the peaceful, safe neighborhood that is so convenient to everything--shopping, medical center, parks etc. The home itself felt spacious enough for us and we used the bungalow as we would our home--cooking, washing clothes, etc. All appliances are in excellent condition. The homeowners, who are so nice and easy to work with, seem to take care of this bungalow. I will definitely rent this home again when I go to Houston in the future!

Perfect place for a small group. Cozy and quiet with excellent amenities. If you're looking for a place to hang out with friends in a non-hotel atmosphere with a nice sit in kitchen area with lots of windows, this is certainly the place! Great backyard to congregate and socialize with friends and very private. Must recommend this bungalow for any out of towners looking for a relaxing weekend in Houston!
