traveler reviews for this houston house rental

Our Teens Loved the Backyard

Review submitted: July 3, 2014   Date of arrival: June 24, 2014

A family with 4 teens and one ten year old, we found this property had a lot to offer in terms of things to keep the kids busy. Two families shared this home while in Houston for a summer wedding. The basketball court was the big draw for us, but the zip line added a ton of fun as well. The zip line is not so high as to truly be scary, but enough of a climb up to be a bit adventurous. The fresh eggs from the chicken coop was a treat and fun to collect. Fire pits are available that would be great in spring/fall. The grounds are pretty, with well kept horses in clear site. The best thing about this property is (as indicated by the name the owners gave it on VRBO) the country atmosphere in the city. Everything you need is around the corner, including a community Walmart, HEB, restaurants and a city park. The neighborhood is pretty and the homes all have large yards with tons of trees. Cypress, TX itself is a respite from Houston bustle. The house is clean and the large kitchen was nice. I would not say the house inside is super modern, but it is adequately updated. The kitchen had most everything you need to cook a major meal, including some spices. The master bedroom and large attached bath could be considered luxurious. The other two bedrooms and study are set up to be flexible on how many it sleeps. Two bedrooms have trundle beds, so not ideal for adults, but we found them comfortable enough. My only complaint was that one of the rooms gets lots of light-nice for daytime, but needs better window coverings for early morning. There were 3 floor mats available for sleeping on that the kids utilized. The second bath that the two trundle-bed bedrooms share was not large, but clean/adequate. Outside, two cars can easily park in the garage- an unusual plus for home rental. The owners are very accommodating, friendly and readily available. Their home is on one end of the property where the basketball court is, but it feels like you have the place to yourself. I can especially recommend this place for families with teens/older kids.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway

Owners response: We are so grateful for your very kind and detailed review. We enjoyed having you and your lovely family as our wonderful Nieghbor. Thank you and hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon.

Great Acommodations!

Review submitted: April 28, 2014   Date of arrival: April 23, 2014

Dear Sam & Mary,
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. It turned out to be the perfect place for our family to relax together during all the wedding hubbub. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy time together. Our 3 month old granddaughter is already requesting her own hammock, she loved her "swinging"
naps.

The home was very well appointed and had everything we needed. The wireless internet was very reliable and appreciated. The deck was a fabulous place to sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful Houston weather. We enjoyed a campfire one evening. If another trip to Houston is in our future we would definitely stay again.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway

Owners response: It was a great pleasure being your host. We are grateful for your kindest review of your stay. We appreciate your time, and hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon.

Kindest regards,
Sam & Mary Rush

Great family stay

Review submitted: April 17, 2014   Date of arrival: March 18, 2014

Everything is advertised and Sam is very attentive to his guest's needs. If had one quibble it was lack of patio furniture on the back porch. If you're in Houston when the weather's fine it would be nice to take advantage of it.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: We appreciate your kind review and suggestion. It was wonderful getting to know you and your lovely family. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in near future.
