Houston Heights Cottage

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Separate structure from my historic home, the newly built cottage is in the back of the property with entrance to secure parking from the alley. Built for my family who rarely visit, there is one bedroom with twin beds, a bathroom with shower, a kitchen area with small stove and refrigerator, a small island with two stools, a window seat with twin bed mattress suitable for a child or small adult, and a junior bed tucked behind one of the two love seats, also in the main room, suitable for a child only. The unit is pet and smoke free due to family allergies. My pets love company (three hens, 11 fish and two cats). The Heights neighborhood is convenient to downtown, the arts district and the medical center. Within the community are numerous restaurants, several within walking distance, an old town main street for shopping, eating or people watching and periodic gallery openings or other community events.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beth and family were such a pleasure to have staying in my cottage. They left everything in complete order, all linens in the dirty clothes basket, wet towels in the shower, dirty dishes in the sink. They even asked where they could dispose of the trash and had it all bagged up. They were friendly, warm, appreciative and ideal guests.

Beautiful apartment and no stairs!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was really lovely and beautifully decorated. A lovely view from the daybed to the lovely back yard, complete with some very picturesque and quiet chickens. This is a stand alone cottage with its own parking space!

Visited Houston for Super Bowl and stayed here. Enjoyed the privacy of stand alone cottage on premises of primary residence. Owner was very nice and available as needed.
