About Robin Cooke

Greetings from your hosts, Robin and Bob Cooke. We are both native Houstonians. We love to travel, have stayed on ships, river boats, bed and breakfast and weekend homes both in the states and over seas. We have learned from these experiences the ammenities that make us feel comfortable and pampered. We also love our city and feel very blessed that we have this special space to share with you.

Robin Cooke purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Robin Cooke chose Montrose

We love our location because of its close proximity to so many options for your entertainment. Montrose is a residential neighborhood located in the Neartown area of Houston, Texas, USA. Established in 1911, the neighborhood is a demographically diverse area with renovated mansions, bungalows with wide porches, and cottages located along tree-lined boulevards. Montrose is one of the more pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in Houston. We are an easy drive or Metro Rail ride to downtown tfor the George R Brown, Astros Baseball the theater district; Hobby Center for Broadway shows, Alley Theater,one of the best professional live theaters anywhere, Jones Hall to attend Houston Symphony and Ballet. The Wortham Center for Ballet, Rice University and the University of St. Thomas are about 1/2 mile away. We also love down time to sit and read, enjoy the pool, relax with a glass of wine and would invite you to enjoy this newly constructed home away from home.

What makes this apartment unique

The personal attention to details you will experience while with us will have you coming back again and again. If you are arriving late, let me know what food/drink/snacks you would like to have in the pantry/refrigerator. I'll do the shopping for you, leave the receipt and you simply reimburse, plus it will help me to know what you like. You will always find a gift basket of special treats waiting for you. I'm here to assist you with reservations at resturants and things to see and do. Bring your laptop, there is free wi-fi and various websites listed in the Heavely Loft Guest House Notebook that will help you discover new and wonderful things to do while you are here.

My husband and I stayed a few days for a much needed break. The property is beautiful and has everything you need. Bob and Robin were a joy to work with. There are many restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend this property and plan on visiting again!

Robin's place is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. It is quiet and private. Being on the second floor, it is bright with a view of the sky and trees. We enjoyed the deck, which overlooks a clean, well-decorated pool area. Robin and her husband live in front but keep their back curtains drawn, so the rental and pool feel private. Carley, the family dog, is small, friendly, and well-behaved. We enjoyed watching her patrol the grounds on her short nightly walks. The neighborhood is pleasant and peaceful. It is a five-minute drive to the zoo, parks, museums, a Whole Foods, and many great restaurants. (It could be considered a walk, depending on your stamina.) Robin and her husband are warm and gracious. They seem to enjoy having people stay there, and we certainly enjoyed our stay.

Great Location and Great Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our parents while we were doing a renovation. We couldn't be happier and our parents really enjoyed the space. It is very comfortable, has a lot of room, a full kitchen, great bed, easy access, and on top of it all the host, Robin, was fantastic. We will highly recommend and most likely will use Robin's apartment again. A+

Sweet Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

The Heavenly Loft ranks in the top 10 amongst several hundred places I've rented through VRBO! Great location, very comfortable all the way around, superbly equipped, gracious host - it has it all. The owners set a new standard when they converted the spacious over-garage apartment, sparing no expense to create what truly is a Heavenly Loft! It will be at the top of my list for future Houston trips!!
