About Janet Mathews
I am originally from a small east Texas town of San Augustine. I was raised on a ranch and was a barrel racer by the age of 9. I have a great appreciation for all animals and anything outdoors. I was a high school history and psychology teacher. I quit teaching and became a serial entrepreneur. I have been self employed for most of my adult life. It seems that I really like to sell things ( it makes me high). Some of my businesses consisted of selling imprinted sportswear to schools as well as hand painted wall murals. For the last five years, I have taught onsite CPR and First Aid to company employees and schools. I now live in Galveston, Texas and enjoy entertaining and the beauty of the Gulf Coast. My mantra for life is 'you reap what you sow' and 'don't sweat the small stuff'.
Janet Mathews purchased this Cottage in 1990
Why Janet Mathews chose Neartown
This property is in a beautiful upscale neighborhood with tree lined streets in the heart of Montrose near downtown Houston. It is artsy and hip in every way. The architecture is 1920s red brick mixed with the current new styles of urban structures. So many attractions are in walking distance such as restaurants, wine bars, coffee bars ,bakeries, antique shopping, and Allen Parkway ( a beautiful park for walking, running, biking, and dog walking). Theaters and Museums are literally 5 minuets away. The neighborhood is quiet with many long time residents walking their dogs in early mornings and late afternoon. The location of this property is so wonderful because you are always driving against the traffic and you can jump on every freeway in minuets.

La Casita is a comfy home away from home
We stayed at La Casita while visiting our children in Houston. It is in a great location and wonderful neighborhood. We felt comfortable walking back at night. There are good restaurants within walking distance. We found La Casita to be comfortable and well supplied. Internet worked well. We look forward to out next stay.
Excellent location and perfect size.
We stayed 5 days and found our selves close to crawfish festivals, metro for visiting the rodeo, grocery shopping and much more. Had all the basic amenities we needed ( even a wine opener!). My husband wants to come back and stay again!
Glad you liked the place. You are welcomed back anytime.
Great location beautifully decorated. Location location!
But, you need to upgrade that mattress it was awful. We came to get away and rest the bed was terrible. The house also smelled very moldy. Beautiful place but needs some work.
Weekend trip to Houston
Great location- walking distance to many museums, restaurants, bars, coffee shops. I'm a runner and was able to run from the cottage to Rice University and back. The bed was very comfy and I liked having a place to hang out, relax, make coffee. Thanks for the great stay!
Very peaceful place in the heart of the city
I was amazed on quite it was with the location being in the heart of the city. I was in Houston for work and it was nice to come back and relax with only being 15 mins from where I was working. It is very close to everything and Janet was awesome to work with.
Dan was a great guest. He was very respectful and communicated with me throughout his visit. He is welcomed back anytime.
Cute Guest House in Cool Neighborhood
This was a precious little guest house in a fabulous neighborhood. It was clean and well decorated. It was well stocked with everything we needed including coffee and toiletries. Tons of restaurants, bars, and shops nearby. My only complaint was that it was freezing (literally) when we stayed there, and it took the window unit/heater a full 24 hours to heat the place up.

Theaters and Museums are literally 5 minuets away. Close to Rice, St. Thomas and University of Houston. Discovery Green the Medical Center, NRG Stadium, Minuet Maid Stadium and minutes away from the casita. This is the favorite area for most Houstonians.
