This property is lovingly and thoughtfully renovated. It is updated with an artistic sensibilility.

  • 5 of 5

I came here not as a visitor but as a refugee from Hurricane Harvey. The proprietors of this property are attentive to every need, yet not overbearing. What was most notable to me was the beauty and serenity of the environment, most needed for me at the time. I truly enjoyed the care payed to the home, re-enforcing it's heritage. Beauty, peace, kindness, care ...these are my lasting impressions.

wonderfully responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

I stay in this cozy garage apartment periodically for work trips. When I've given feedback to the owners, they are quick to respond and take care of fine-tuning suggestions I've made. I appreciate this home-away-from-home and its location so much. The new ottoman and sofa are comfy, too.

Cozy Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Historic Heights Carriage House met all our needs of our stay in Houston for 7 nights while on holiday from New Zealand. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. The area was quiet and we felt very safe there. Enjoyed the Christmas lights of the neighbourhood.

The only negative point would be the bath/shower which was difficult to get in and out of, especially as I am short in height.

It is a very nice setting that is just a few minutes from downtown Houston

This is the second time I've stayed here and enjoyed it. It is close to everything and easy to connect to the interstate. The owners are very nice and accommodating.

Like coming home

  • 4 of 5

I've stayed here several times, and it was warm and welcoming once again. I had trouble getting the bedroom a/c on and the owner, who lives a few blocks away, immediately came over and sorted it out. I recommend this place!

At home in Houston Heights

  • 4 of 5

This little house was a lovely place for us as we spent the week exploring Houston. It had everything we needed (the kitchen was missing a few things we would have liked to have), was very comfortable and quiet, and I loved the brightness of the many windows and stained glass. A wonderful place for us. My only concern is the claw-foot tub. While authentic and cute, we found it very awkward to get in and out of and very confining to shower in. For those less able to maneuver, this could be a problem. Maria's communication with us was lovely and timely and we had no problems at all while there. We would stay here again. A great bargain!!
