6. Farmhouse Bungalow
|Webpage||Charming Bungalow - Airbnb|
|Amenities||Minibar, poolside seating, friendly neighborhood, cooking basics, coffee maker, patio, balcony, free parking, no stairs|
|Average Price||$193 for a two-night stay|
One of my favorite properties in this guide is this gorgeous farmhouse bungalow near Downtown Houston. With exposed brickwork and a dark wooden interior, it’s so full of character that you immediately fall in love with it.
There is a four-poster bed in the master bedroom, which feels lavish and elegant, and adds something unique to your stay.
There is a shared patio area with plenty of seating, a mini fridge, and a canopy, so you can enjoy an evening al fresco come rain or shine.
Outside is the large swimming pool, with plenty of space to get your lengths in. However, they have a hot tub in the garden, which unfortunately seems to always be out of order. I am not sure about the reasoning behind this. There is also a slide that runs into the pool. It is great fun if you’re traveling with the little ones (or big kids, in my case).
Inside the apartment is a beautiful kitchen area with a built-in double oven, a modern fridge freezer with an ice dispenser, lots of storage space, and a water dispenser.
Overall this is an excellent spot whether you’re staying long or short-term in Houston, and by the end of your stay, you won’t want to leave.
