About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath in a quiet suburban neighborhood.

This peaceful and cozy home is a great place to relax with all the comforts of home. The water did not pass the curb during Harvey. Please note the hotel taxes will be removed on stays over 30 days.

You enter past the bubbling water garden and come through the antique craftsman door. Once inside you will find lots of unique details that make this home unique in a neighborhood. Mr Kat is bound to great you with his usual enthusiasm for all visitors. The Kitchen is fully equipped as this is my home and the pantry is stocked with all the essentials. A Cuisinart keurig coffee maker is ready to use. The house has WiFi, the living room TV is connected to Netflix, Hulu, CBS, PBS and Amazon Prime. The master bedroom TV has a DVD player. The King size master bed is a sleep-number bed with a 4 inch memory foam topper. The 2nd Queen size bed has a comfy 3" topper also. Whether you are visiting family, attending a wedding or event this will be a peaceful oasis.

Enjoy the greenbelt system of 70+ miles of wooded trails for walking or cycling. My Home is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Lots of space to put my portacrib up in the Master. this home was not created with young children in mind but could be child friendly on a case by cases basis, not for rambunctious children! This property is absolutely non smoking Mr Kat is 6yrs old, loves visitors and is very chill. He has an automatic cat feeder, water bowl and a cat door. If you will not enjoy Mr Kat he could move on monthly rentals.

About Yvonne Saunders

I grew up in the Northeast of England and moved to Sarasota FL after I married in 1985. We moved to Irvine, Ca before moving to Houston in 1990. I am a Yoga, spin and health educator and travel around Houston teaching classes. I love to travel to visit one of my 4 adult children or to adventure with my beau.

Yvonne Saunders purchased this house in 2006

Why Yvonne Saunders chose Lake Houston

I have lived in 4 areas of Houston but Kingwood was the perfect place to raise 4 children. I have since downsized with life changes and love the size of this home.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had the chance to meet Yvonne as we arrived, a true pleasure! Her home was so welcoming and beautiful. We instantly felt 'at home' here. Located in a forested community, the access to walking trails was nearby and an absolute must. Yvonne had left us with bracelets for the community pool, which we also enjoyed. There are so many positives to staying in this home.... its cleanliness, the décor, the nearby access to everything without having the 'big city' feel, but most of all the presence of Mr. Kat. This house comes with a resident cat who is as welcoming as his owner. My daughter enjoyed him immensely as he was very affectionate and loving yet absolutely independent. If you have a chance to stay in this area, book this home! You will be glad you did.

The house is very nice, clean, tidy and fully equipped. Yvonne received us in her home and explained everything we needed. Mr. Cat was also very friendly and our daughter loved him. If we ever visit Houston again, we would return :)
