Travelers with an interest in history will love host Maria’s place. It’s a chance to stay in a fully renovated carriage house… garage. That’s right! It is part of a 1920’s home and guests who have stayed here have highlighted the location of this listing and the lovely decor, too, like guest Dennis: “Very welcoming hosts to a quite unique apartment/garage. Stocked with some interesting items which attempt to preserve remnants of a bygone age, while maintaining modern day functionality. Little extra touches were appreciated.” The garage provides everything that a conventional apartment would, with a little twist.

Host Darcie fondly calls her listing a “treehouse”, because it is on the second floor and has a covered porch, with an outdoor sitting area, surrounded by trees. It is a brand new property, finished in May of 2017, and has a fully functional kitchen, complete with a full-size fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher. This rental includes a washer and a dryer, too, so it is very convenient for long stays. It is a wonderful opportunity if you are in the mood for a retreat.

If this is your first Airbnb experience, you might like to stay in this private room in host Jacquelyn’s house, since she has not welcomed too many guests here yet, making it perfect for new users. For an affordable price, you will have your own private bathroom in a very tasteful and luminous space. The common areas of the house have a very nice atmosphere, as well. It’s a beautiful jewel, that is still under the radar.
Private room with attached bathroom in the Heights
You will see a wide variety of architectural styles in Houston Heights. Still, you probably wouldn’t expect to feel like you are stepping into a plantation home in Louisiana when you are in Texas, but this is just the case with host Benjamin’s house. You will get to stay in a beautiful room, that features a queen size bed and a gorgeous attached bathroom, but the main feature of this listing is the building’s facade, which is classic New Orleans. With a perfect location to explore Houston Heights, you could say that you get the best of two worlds.
Charming New Orleans style house
“The house is an original 1909 Victorian, that has been completely updated and converted into an upstairs/downstairs duplex”, host Kimberli explains. As a guest, you will stay in the 1500 square foot (139.4 square metre) upstairs unit, with access to 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, office space, full kitchen and your own laundry room. You will also be able to relax in the sitting areas of the front and back balconies. Located within walking distance to restaurants, bars, local shopping and live music venues, this is an excellent option if you are travelling with your pet, because of the fenced lot and Kimberli’s consideration to animals.

She and many others, who have stayed here, have loved the personalized attention, room amenities and the perfect location. The room is on the first floor of a 3-story house and has a queen bed and its own private bathroom, “all in modern decor”, host Alex explains.

The B&B is part of a vintage 1903 manor, that features common areas that all guests can access, like a second-floor verandah, a reading room, library, TV room and, one of the most beautiful parts of the manor, the downstairs dining room.
