Centrally located in lovely, tree-lined Sunset Heights are two new, ultra-modern, micro-temp-housing urban spa retreats, designed by an award-winning architect, with a hip and soothing vibe ideal for Houston’s sultry weather. These high-end yet affordable sanctuaries offer an oasis of peace within the bustle of the city, the elegant and minimalist design de-cluttering both your environment and your psyche. There are custom-designed cabinets, built-in closets and storage spaces for clothing, toiletries, groceries and personal belongings. There is a place and purpose for everything so guests can enjoy space, light, and air without that open-suitcase, hotel-room look. Each unit includes a master bedroom and bath, kitchen, living and dining rooms and is 440 square feet.
The retreats are 12 minutes from downtown & Memorial Park, 20 minutes from the Medical Center, 5 minutes from the Heights bike and walking trails, fine dining and shopping on 19th Street. You can also take taking the Main & 24th bus to the Medical Center. Airports are between 25-30 minutes, depending on traffic.
Enjoy a gourmet kitchen fully stocked with great cookware, serveware and utensils. Relax with a glass of wine while preparing your favorite meals using a Summit induction cook top, Bertazzoni combination oven/microwave, Fisher Pakyal drawer dishwasher, and refrigerator, or stroll to dinner at one of many excellent local restaurants.
The tranquil bedrooms and spa baths, with the highest quality linens, were designed to pamper and recharge you after work, working out or a night on the town.

Please note I cannot accommodate any pets (cats or dogs) as I'm allergic. Also, these units are not suitable for children.
There are two lock boxes on property for an easy move-in experience. This unit has parking under carport with a gated entry. Keys will be left in the secure lock box for ease of access. Owner is most often available. Each unit has a user guide with rules and helpful information about the property and the neighborhood.
You will have an assigned parking spot under the carport, only a few steps from where you enter. There is no parking in the alley, in front of my neighbor’s garage, or anywhere around . Any other street parking spots are open for your or your visitor’s use.
My housekeeper Maria, who comes twice a month, is wonderful and will make your unit sparkle. Housekeeping covers normal wear and tear. Anything excessive (really dirty or heavy soiled/stained linens/towels) will incur an extra cleaning charge, taken out of deposit. Housekeeping includes cleaning the bathroom, kitchen, living and dining rooms, mopping, vacuuming, and changing sheets (comforter cover once a month).
Interaction with guests
I'm here and available to help you get connected to the area. I will provide you with a list of grocery stores, dry cleaners, shopping, restaurants, suggestions and anything you might need. I will have impromptu wine and cheese gatherings as time permits. I love enjoy visiting with my guests and am equally happy not to bother you if you prefer. If you are into yoga, I get a few free passes per month. I live on site but I'm working most of the time and active. You have your privacy and I won't enter your unit except for scheduled cleaning or necessary repairs (with notice).
I was a road warrior for years in the medical sales industry. I stayed in temp housing, bed & breakfast, hotels, resorts and even bad hole-in-the-walls in Podunk, USA. I know what a traveler needs and wants, and I furnished the units with the sort of luxury amenities I used to dream of. MY hope is that you never want to leave! If there is anything you need or are missing, just ask; I may have it onsite.
If you book this unit for 60 or 90 days or longer between August 15, 2017, & December 31, 2017, you will receive extra perks—a complimentary massage or a pedi/manicure service from local mobile service providers. Both of the ladies that provide these services are wonderful. With a 60-day booking you will receive the complimentary pedi/mani; with 90 days the massage.
No smoking inside/out, no wild parties and no pets. Medically prescribed products are the exception.
