Feb 25th, 2010 

We had a great stay at the Modern B&B, we rented one of their flats for a few days in Feb 2010, upon arrival we were upgraded to a larger one that gave us one more bedroom for free!
Lisa was lovely and gave us loads of tips of restaurants, bars, cafe's and directions to everywhere!
The breakfast served was great; I'm a vegan myself and never expect to be acommodated for, but I was with smoothies, toast, coffee, home made vegan bakes and more!
I truly recommend Modern B&B to everyone visiting Houston - it's also located in a lovely area of the city with nice places to go out within walking distance which isn't very common in US!

I had a fine time at Modern B&B. Good breakfast, comfortable room, fat cat. --Edward Albee, New York City

Oct 5th, 2009

This is the 4th or 5th time we have stayed at M B&B. Firstly, I want to commend Lisa (the owner) on her amazing hospitality and her efforts to make your travel as hassle-free as possible. Ease of reservations and her flexibility make every visit great. Modern B&B is by far one of my most favorite places to stay in ALL my travels around the globe.

My boyfriend and I have always stayed in the Top Shelf Room. The view of the downtown skyline is spectacular and totally worth the price! (The prices for all the rooms are very reasonable as well.) The roomy Top Shelf bedroom and amazing bathroom plus walk-in closet makes you wish you could stay there forever. Also, the entire townhouse is well furnished and decorated, with every comfort you need. The common areas have interesting artwork, books and movies for your use, as well as a 'business center'.

This is the first B&B I've ever been to where you don't feel like you're 'intruding' in the kitchen (there's a guest kitchen too) or common areas. Unlike other B&B's we've stayed at where we have experienced the B&B managers treating us with an odd are distant relatives of theirs on a visit and want to chat you up the entire time you are in the common areas, Lisa and her staff do not make you feel like you are obligated to 'hang out' with them but they are happy to do so if you want interesting conversation or recommendations, etc...! (Oh, and if they are around.)

All in all, Modern B&B is perfect in all aspects: Clean, modern, comfortable, welcoming, charming, friendly, and open. Hotels such as Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton can't hold a candle to the experiences we've had at Modern B&B.


I travel constantly on my job and long ago gave up staying in chain hotels out of sheer boredom; byou never know what you're going to get in a B&B. Modern B&B was, hands down, the best B&B I've ever stayed at in terms of comfort, amenities and the sheer joy of Lisa's (and friends!) company. I never feel as if I'm staying at a commercial establishment -- I feel right at home. There are always interesting people around and Lisa plays "salon hostess" to great effect. Food: great. Accommodations: Better than great. Company: superb. Flexibility/being accommodating: terrific. The only downside to my writing this review is that I'm afraid so many people will books rooms there might not be any availability the next time I need it!

Real Estate Reviews
See what Lisa's clients have to say about her real estate acumen.
   Whilst one would be averse to stand up in a court of law and testify for or against the Lovely Lisa Collins, I can, without doubt, aver to her house vending/finding skills. Lest there be any vagueness, on the part of the reader of this testimonial, I shall relate my personal experience with the one and only Lisa Collins. 

   I'm a 50 year old, single, lush of an Irish woman living in Houston, TX for some 20 odd years. I wanted a house. I wanted a house I could afford. I wanted a house that didn't need fixing and was ready to walk into. I wanted a house to live in 'til I croak. I wanted a house in a specific locale (the Heights or Montrose). I wanted a house with a yard (allowing my 2 Yorkshire Terrier puppies, Seamus and Paddy, to crap and pee at will and torture squirrels). I wanted a garage (OK, I wanted a garage so I could turn it into a pub). I wanted to feel and be safe in my new house. I wanted to walk, jog, cycle to the stores for my booze, chips and dip, lottery tickets and dog chow. I wanted to drive, no more than 15 minutes, to my work place each day without getting on a freeway. I wanted great neighbors. I wanted peace and quiet. I wanted someone to find MY house ASAP. There was and is no end to my wants.

   Anywho, drum roll, enter the LOVELY LISA COLLINS!

   A friend of mine recommended Lisa to me. Lisa was the only realtor I entertained and was entertained by. Lisa got me all of the above I wants. She is absolutely tireless in meeting the needs/wants of her clients! That is testimonial in itself. However, not only did I get the home I wished for, and more, but Lisa and I became good friends to me and my "posse" of Irish, English, Scottish, American chums. What a unique lady! The whole house buying process was painless and a lot of fun for me and my pals. I could go on and on about the qualities, talents and uniqueness of Lisa, but need to get my butt back to work lest I get fired.

   Best wishes,
