Live like a local in an old Medical Center/Rice University area home. This area is considered by most as one of the safer areas of metropolitan Houston & located closely to so many things to do. This location is close to Restaurants, Convenience store, gym, spa, hair salon, Medical Center hospitals, Rice University, Rice Village shopping and nightlife, & much more all within a mile. You will not need a car to get around.

Жилье

You will have your own private room in a 5 bedroom house. Though the house is constantly being updated, it is old & still needs much more to make it look perfect. Nonetheless, it is very comfortable & down to earth.

In your room you will have a comfortable bed, nightstands with lamps, storage space to put belongings, personal mini-fridge, toaster oven, TV, coffee maker. At no charge: Complementary instant coffee, tea, breakfast snacks, couple cold beverages in fridge, towel, shampoo, toilet paper (enough to get you started).

Just to be clear, this is not a hotel experience. This is a roommate experience. You will be provided with the basics in the beginning, and that is it. The room & the furniture inside of it is not upscale, but it is clean.

Доступно гостям

You have your own private room, and access to the shared bathrooms. There is a full bathroom upstairs, and a half bathroom downstairs, which both are shared by all. There is also a sitting area in the backyard. If you are staying at least 10 days, you may use the laundry room.

Общение с гостями

This is a co-ed house that you will be sharing with others. I am usually there and may be reached by messenger and phone also

Другие важные подробности

This is not the Ritz Carlton, or the Holiday Inn-Just a place to live like a local, to be a roommate of ours essentially. You will not have personal maid service cleaning after you. You are expected to clean after your own messes & everyone staying a whole week or longer helps a little with chores once a week. The "cleaning fee" covers the cost of turning over the room, welcome supplies, & relieves you of any cleaning duties if you are staying 6 days or less.

There is a small chance you could be in one of the other rooms in the pictures, they are all very similar.

If you plan on parking your car outside, please let me know before you book so that we can make parking arrangements.

Houston is a very wet, humid city. With that comes more insects than the average city so please do your research so you know what to expect when you come to this city. Here is a link to check out that compares our climate a little with different parts of the world:

I also recommend that you research the specifics on weather conditions to expect and what types of insects to expect if you are not used to tropical rain-forest type climates

Very helpful and considerate host. Made last minute arrangements for me when my travel plans got cancelled due to the storm and made sure I was safe and sound. Really thankful to her.

Mistie was a wonderful host and she was right there when you needed her. She was waiting for my arrival, made me feel comfortable in the new house and also briefed me about the nearest shops for groceries and also let me use her cards for price discounts.The location was also very close from med centre(I used to walk from there) and the neighbourhood is also safe.The house is a lil bit old , but the rooms where clean. And you can live like a local there with no worries. The other inmates where also very amiable and we also used to have frequent outings ,thanks to mistie.The only negative aspects where the bugs which I guess is inherent to houston and one of the inmates cat who is quite nosy.�.If I get a chance to visit Houston , I would prefer Mistie's house again as it was comfortable, close and less burdening for my pocket.Suggestions :Revamp the living room so that we can get a common place to hangout as outside we had too many bugs.Thanks again Mistie.

Thank you so much for the great review Abhi. It was awesome having you here. You were very nice & funny to be around; Always in a good mood; Always offering to help with stuff around the house. We were blessed to have you in our house & to get the chance to know you & be your roommates/housemates. You were a good housemate. I am regretful that I lost my opportunity to leave you a review as I missed the time deadline on that. My review for you surely would have been 5 stars because of your nice personality. I hope I have another chance in the future to write you a glowing review & I would be more than happy to vouch for you. If you need a good reference from me sometime I will give it to someone for you. And you are right about the bug situation here in Houston. We need a space to hang inside so I am revamping the living room & will send you pictures as it comes along further. Keep in touch with us.

Mistie was great. I had a late booking and she was very accomodating and very responsive to my messages. I got to the house late and she was waiting for me and even let me park in her garage. The place is just as she describes in the profile. The place is old but clean which is more important. I saw only one of the other guests and at night he had the music a bit high (which i personally was bothered by) but Mistie messaged him and it was "fixed". She was great.

This was a great, cheap option for staying in the area. Mistie was really friendly, available, and communicative. The place is how it is described, older and in need of renovations. But the room was clean and comfortable. There are cats living in the house, so there is cat hair everywhere for anyone who may be allergic. Great budget option!

Hey Kimberly. Thank you for taking the time to write the review & it was nice to meet you. The hair you are referring to was actually dog hair from an Airbnb guest-not from a cat. They had a big dog at the house. The guest would kindly sweep the hair their dog would leave but it was so much hair so I also swept it before you arrived & I saw more hair on the floor your second night there & asked you if you noticed anything off (hoping that you did not notice it, haha) & you said everything was perfect. If you would have told me you noticed that when I asked-I would have been able to explain to you that. :-) Anyways, hope to have you back at the house-you were very sweet. Good luck on your job hunt.

Mistie was an amazing host. Incredibly accommodating for check in and check out. She showed me around Houston and some nifty nearby bars. I felt incredibly at home as did Petey, my pup. The room was cozy and comfy. Would definitely recommend staying here as I would do so again!!

Mistie was nice, but was very disappointed with the place. Not clean, woke up to ants in my bed, roaches in the bathroom.
Профиль пользователя Mistie
Ответ от Mistie:
Hi Isabel, Im sorry to hear your first experience using a listing on Airbnb was unsatisfactory for you. At the end of this review response I am including a few alternate places nearby for you to consider staying your next visit of Medical Center area- for your future reference. In response to your review & feedback to Airbnb that I read: South Texas such as Houston, Galveston, etc is very humid & muggy and attracts more insects than other areas: Mosquitoes, ants, & much more-you name it-Houston has it. The climate is tropical, similar to that of a rain-forest. If you conduct some research regarding insects in humid/moist parts of the world will find out more about this & why this is. I did not see any ants in your room as you told Airbnb & mentioned in the review & I asked the roommates & they said they did not see any in the house either- but if it is true then I suppose it could be possible if they came in in through your shoes or pants because there has been a lot of ants outside in the neighborhood recently. You told Airbnb that you saw specifically just 1 roach in the bathroom-yet in the review you said "roaches" in the bathroom-that is conflicting information. I personally have not seen a roach in the bathroom in ages. If you did then it would have been a "tree-roach" which is the type that lives by trees et cetera out here in Houston & there are a lot of trees in this neighborhood & around the house. Research online and you will see that out of all of the cities in all of the United States-Tampa, Florida & Houston, Texas rank highest for roach sightings. Here at the house we don't see them constantly, but yes, occasionally we may see 'em, & when we do, they are normally dead. It is the nature of the climate that these type of insects that live around the trees occasionally stumble into houses that are located near trees (especially 80 yr old houses that have more cracks in them); even clean houses they will enter. It is impossible to keep them out completely at all times. If you web search "tree-roaches in Houston" you will find out why that is. You told Airbnb that I was late to meet you, yet you told me you could be at the house at 6 or 7 and I told you Ill see you at 7 and was here at 6:55 and you weren't here, and I offered to come get you and you did not respond. You showed up an hour or so after and I was still here waiting. You told them that you did not know I tried to contact you regarding that-yet when you saw me, you apologized for not noticing my texts & Airbnb messages which I have receipts for both of, so you definitely did know that I kept in contact with you. You told Airbnb that you were not satisfied with the linens/towels/room/restroom. The towels/linens are not Ralf Lauren or Calvin Klein quality, but they are cleaned each time before a guest arrives. The restroom/bedroom is very basic and old but it is cleaned each time before a guest arrives. You also told Airbnb the photos were not accurate. It states in the description that sometimes you will get a different room than in the initial picture, which is why I have multiple pictures in the description-but in your case, you definitely got the room in the main picture-only difference was the bedspread was different-otherwise the same. I know this is your first Airbnb experience so I can understand why you may have expected something different. Airbnb offers a wide array of experiences from new luxurious places with all the finest accommodations to tenting outside on someone's property (In fact a tent outside of someones house sometimes costs more than I charge for a private room). This place is somewhere in the middle on a scale of comparison. The room is set up clean & private & the location is great yet because the house is old with just extremely basic minimum accommodations it is at a budget price (compared to other places in the area for short term/no lease). I'm sorry the house was not what you were looking for. For future reference-just be sure to read the descriptions in detail for places you are interested in staying. I am pretty honest in my description about the good & bad things about renting a room here, & I believe most places are honest as well so if you read the descriptions that the hosts write about what to expect, you should be better prepared for what to expect next time. As mentioned in the beginning of this response, I am including some basic information of nearby options to accommodate you next time you need to stay in the Medical Center. The few places I checked were based on location. For a budget option, there is another Airbnb place nearby for a similar price ($30+$20 cleaning fee), if you are okay sharing a bedroom with a stranger. The reviews were good. Other options in this area are some hotels. Because you reserved the room on a Tuesday-for the following day-a Wednesday, I compared rates based on the same factors. I called on a Tuesday evening requesting for the next day-a Wednesday. Because I'm not sure what your price range is, (because you did book here at my house-which was the cheapest option in the area) & you took Mega-bus to get here (cheapest method of transport), yet the food you left in your room appeared to be expensive & the MAC shopping bags (implied possibly expensive taste in makeup)-i decided to compare the most basic hotel options & one of the nicer hotel options nearby. The cheapest one I could find in the area was Extended Stay & they did not have any availabilities for next day booking (sold out though-I guess because their prices are good), so I checked for the following day- Thursday & the rates were 99+tax=116 per night for the most basic room. But then I read the reviews & saw that there were so many complaints about insects & things breaking & unclean conditions & bad customer service so I am not so sure you would be satisfied with that place, certainly not if you were unhappy with my place. So lets move on to the nicer option: For the Marriott-next day booking for a Wednesday night (exactly how you booked mine) Bottom line room: 379+tax= 426.53 per night (Nearly sold-out). Executive room: 449+tax=587.91 per night. Ambassador Suite: 538+tax=633.87 per night. And according to what I read, there will be an extra charge for wifi, and no free breakfast. I'm sure you can get cheaper rates if you book in advance & use a partner site to get a discount through or sign up for their Marriott Rewards program that was mentioned to me when I called. They had a few bad reviews, but most of their reviews are very good. I'm sure it is better than this shabby house, needless to say. I hope you found my response at least somewhat informative & helpful. Take care & best wishes to you, sincerely.

about me: I like to experience new positive things, like outdoor activities and traveling. So far, Ive traveled to India, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Canada, France, & numerous states in the US, but most of my traveling wasn't done recently so Id like to change that. I know what its like to travel many different ways (from sleeping in hammocks w practical strangers while chickens run around underneath & functioning w no running water to having it easy in places like the Ritz Carlton in Paris. I know how it feels to have to trust strangers in strange places,... so I use my experiences to try to make people in my home feel welcome and safe-like their home away from home.
