Charming home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was charming and very close to downtown. It was a wonderful weekend getaway for 3 girls to hit the downtown scene, shop until we dropped. The convention center and the Minute Maid Stadium were just minutes away. We had a wonderful and quiet time, in a rural setting close to downtown. The home was safe and sound, even when Houston got hit with heavy rains and flooding. I would recommend this home to any of my friends. We hope to return again in the future. Many thanks to the owner!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay here at Herman's place. This was my first time using Homeaway and Herman made my first impression extremely positive. He was very nice and helpful. He stuck to our planned schedule for arrival and departure. He was very accommodating when I asked for more seating in the dining room (I only needed it for 1 day so me and my 5 guests could sit together for a demonstration. Other than that, we weren't sitting down for meals at the dinner table). My guests and I were constantly on the go and Herman gave us plenty of space. He chose to bring extra seating to the house while we were out so that he didn't interfere with whatever we were doing. I wouldn't have minded if he showed up while we were there, but I thought that was polite and professional of him. 100% positive feedback goes to Herman for being such an outstanding Homeaway owner.

Of course I read the reviews before booking this place, and some of the other concerns didn't bother me at all. The neighborhood was fine. No, it's not fancy, but it's definitely better than decent. I didn't plan to cook, so pots and pans were not a necessity for me. But we did make use of the Keurig and blender. The house is exactly as pictured so no surprises there. Extremely nice appliances as well. And I didn't have to worry about the little things like tissue, dish detergent, or washing detergent. It's close to the Interstate and not too far from any of the Houston attractions, Walmart, Fast Food, or the airport (Hobby). It truly is a home away from home.

Great Central Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean house with everything we four guys on a work trip needed. It was a great central location since we were working all over the place.

Perfect Location! Friendly owner

  • 4 of 5

We were a little taken back at first glance while driving into the area only because it's an older neighborhood, but it is a very quiet and felt very safe. The property is just as it is pictured here. The location is close to all the city pass attractions, such as the Aquarium, Houston Space Center, Kemah Boardwalk, Downtown Houston, The Galleria and all of the fantastic places we dined. The owners were very friendly and helpful with providing us added information about local stores that were within minutes of the property. You could walk...

The cons:

Could use more kitchen items such as pots and pan, dinnerware, and utensils.

I would suggest a new cleaning service, Old food and items left from previous visitors in the refrigerator and both bathrooms

The middle bedroom has privacy issues. The doors to the outer bedrooms and the kitchen open into this room. It's okay for kids, a little awkward for an adult.

Barking dog next door. I guess it could be consider a security measure

Over all this is a great property, We had fantastic short stay. I would recommend this property and stay here again.

Herman I truly appreciate your help in making our mother's birthday a great experience.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The owner was amazing!!!! This was the first time I had ever rented a house and he made the experience a pleasant one. Very friendly and the home have such a home-like feel to it. Could not have ask for a better experience. The neighborhood is quite heard a dog a few times but that is expected in any neighborhood. The house was close to every place we traveled to. Amazing choice I would stay here before going to a hotel in the future with family
