Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sam,



Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful holiday home and making us feel very welcome. My daughter has really enjoyed collecting eggs and of course using the zip wire. I’ve been up and back to Dallas twice this week already as we close out a few things up there and start to move into a new house we found in Katy. As we only just stopped for the day I didn’t want to come and disturb your evening but did want to say thank you so much again for making us feel welcome which has really smoothed our transition to Houston.



We will likely leave around 10 tomorrow, but knowing us we will probably have left something and could well be back latter!



Best wishes,



James

Far-flung Family Celebration

  • out of 5
My husband & I, from West Virginia, our son, from Las Vegas, my Tennessee and Florida sisters all met to attend our daughter's wedding reception/party, and stayed at this property. It was perfect for our group. Easy to get around NW Houston, as well as to the airport and the reception location downtown. Really enjoyed the exotic chickens and petting the horses. Only wish is that true twin beds had been in 2nd & 3rd bedrooms. Loved the woodsy location, and sitting on the back porch.

Wonderfull..........

  • 4 out of 5
Hi There Sam, Thank you for sharing your wonderfull Property, It was Peacefull and charming. Even though the weather was bad, we still enjoyed it. The Home was comfortable and very spacious, charming layout. Masterbedroom and onsuite were great. Other bedrooms had caracter though missed a second king bed, but never the less there were no complaints. Side lamps in the Living room would be a warmer cosy lighting.But with candels we made it cosy. Thank you again for your service and welcoming. We Hope to return again in the near furture, perhaps a different time of year.

Great family experience!

  • out of 5
Dear Sam,
Thank you very much for your hospitality and attention to details even when you and your family were not in town due to the holidays.
We really enjoyed every element of our stay. Kids specially liked searching eggs for breakfast, greeting the horses every morning (specially Prince), riding bikes, using the zip liner, lightning a bon fire, or simply gathering inside the house to play cards or watch TV.
Our kids became official fans of the property and all of its elements and have asked us to stay here every time we visit Houston.
A big thank you for being part of our family holiday trip through your service. Our best wishes for a successful 2015 full of blessings for you and your loved ones.

Wonderful Weekend Spent Celebrating our Daughter’s

  • 5 out of 5
We could not have asked for a better vacation rental for our daughter’s wedding weekend. As you turn off the busy streets of Cypress, you drive into a neighborhood of quiet beautiful splendor.
The property was perfect for all of our needs. It was spacious enough to entertain and visit with the bridesmaids on the eve of the wedding and also family that stopped by during the weekend. The deck was wonderful to relax and enjoy the outdoor view. We all checked out the horses, chickens, pond and barn. Oh yes, we also enjoyed the fresh eggs that Sam and my son collected. That was a first for my son.
I can’t wait to see the pictures taken on this beautiful property of the bride and bridesmaid on the morning of the wedding.
Sam and Mary we so enjoyed our time on your property. The house and grounds were immaculate and had everything that we needed for our stay.
Thank you Sam and Mary for a perfect stay!

Excellent Stay!

  • out of 5
We had an amazing time at our rental house. It was very clean and lots of room for the 5 of us and a 4 month old baby. The laundry room was very organized and made it so easy to do our laundry (which was very day with a baby!). We LOVED the fire pit in the back and roasted marshmallows for our s'mores. The owners were so attentive to our needs! The location was perfect and loved that it felt secluded yet it was so close to everything! We are going to stay here again every time we come to Houston! Thank you so much for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable!!

Our Teens Loved the Backyard

  • 5 out of 5
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.
