This is a beautiful home that is showing normal wear but needs a good cleaning and minor repairs There were not enough towels, hand towel, or wash clothes and what they had was old and stained. The microwave was filthy, the tile floors needed a good scrubbing, as well as the shower floors, and there was mouse poop in the flatware drawer. The showerhead in the downstairs suite was clogged and emitted minimal water, but the pressure was good. However, it took at least seven minutes (I timed it) for the water to get hot so it was NOT a good shower experience! The water pressure was so good in the downstairs water closet that the water splashed out of the sink and onto your clothes when you turned it on. There were two iron spindles on the outside stair rail that were out of place which made it a safety hazard. There were no instructions on how to turn on the hot tub or the pool lights. We were never able to use the hot tub which was a big let down.
The food was good but the bacon was served in a pool of grease. We had to removed the bacon from the platter and place paper towels down to absorb the grease. The milk and juice were put out so early that they were warm by the time breakfast was served. The milk curdled when I added it to my hot tea. We had to request salt the first day because it had not been put out and the sugar bowl was dirty and had old clumped sugar from numerous wet coffee spoons. Bring your own tea bags because the ones they had were an inferior tea in an open container. With those exceptions, breakfast was very good. However, we felt unease about the cleanliness of the whole kitchen because we found mouse droppings in the flatware drawer, the microwave had old food splattered on all sides, the glasses and flatware were left on a towel to drain dry, and no fresh kitchen towels were ever put out.
The plastic flowers on the small tables in the kitchen blocked the view of the other guest sitting at the tables. We removed them to be able to converse more easily. It would be more appealing if they replaced them with shorter arrangements. It would also be more appealing if the use individual salt, pepper, and sugar packets. I would also suggest using real plates instead of paper plates and washing all plates, mugs, glasses, flatware, and coffee pot in the dishwasher. That is a Health Department requirement in our state.
We stayed in the Heavenly Haven with two entrances. One through the main house, and one from the back. The back one had a glass double door with blinds inside to allow the beauty of the trees and birds to be seen in the comfort of the room. The back one led to a wonderful balcony with with steps down to the carport area and swimming area. The balcony was the perfect place to sit and watch the birds and wildlife. Note: the pool pumps are below the balcony, so there is a bit of noise, but with a bit of tuning them out, you can hear the birds. The noise does not penetrate the room. The room had a super comfortable more than king size bed and we slept well. The sitting room was great. There were three Windows, one of which had no screen, so I promptly opened that one to take a few photos of the front pond, dock, and bench. The shower was amazing. It had room for four very comfortably & could probably accommodate six. It had two small seats in the corners, three shower heads and four wall jets. The shower does leak a bit onto the floor, so be sure to request extra towels for the pool, spa, and bathroom floor. The tub looked appealing & spacious, but the shower was our first choice this trip. This was probably considered a luxury room at one time, but it does need a bit of shower head cleaning or replacement, but it is still fabulously lovely. Breakfast was delicious & comfortable. We chatted with Anthe, the manager, during breakfast. She was a delight. She even provided a short tour so we know which room to book on our next stay. Although all of the rooms had their positives, our Heavenly Haven stay would most likely be our first choice because of the shower, bed, balcony, and inside and outside entrances.
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. You can tell that, originally, this place was top notch. We enjoyed ourselves while we were there, taking a little ride on the paddle boat around the small pond and swimming in the pool. However, the boat was covered in dirt and grass which we had to clean off ourselves before we could use it. We stayed in their biggest suite, which has an enormous shower, jacuzzi tub, and it's own little living room. The jacuzzi gets it's water supply from a waterfall over a plexiglass ramp from the ceiling. Cool, except, it's caked in hard water stains. The enormous shower with jets in the walls as well as three jets from above shouts luxury, until you step out of the shower into a puddle of water because the door doesn't seal. We were only given three unmatched towels so we couldn't properly soak it up. The toilet is even a unique shape with beveled edges and rubbed bronze handle. Great, Except, it runs constantly. Five of the seven lights overhead in the bathroom were out making it hard to get ready for the evening. My husband brought the floor lamp in from the bedroom so I could see better to put on my war paint. Even the outside pool bathroom was in serious need of cleaning. They said its because the yard guys use it but I would think if you knew you were having guests, you'd check that thing every day.
I will say the breakfast was so very delicious and abundant. They even had these Greek pancakes that you just have to try. I also want to learn how to make their skillet potatoes. I'm not sure what they add to them but they are delicious.
Also, the bed is probably he most comfortable bed I've ever slept in and I have a Tempur-pedic mattress at home.
In short, this place has serious potential and could be a 5 star b&b with just a little attention to detail and elbow grease. I'm sure there is a reason it's fallen into a little disrepair but I hope they pull it back together. Our area needs a nice getaway like this.
We Stayed at Seventh Heaven Ranch on the evening of our wedding. We both enjoy the relaxed country atmosphere and really wanted to stay at some place rustic vs the traditional hotel. We choose Seventh Heaven and we are so glad we did. The location is absolutely beautiful and the honeymoon suite is beyond amazing. Huge walk in shower and oversize soaking tub.My favorite part of the stay was the breakfast which was truly one of the best breakfast's I have ever had in my life. The food was so tasty homemade and fresh. My wife and I will defiantly be back to Seventh Heaven again! I strongly recommend this palace for anyone needing a romantic place to stay in Cypress, Texas.
Truly a place made for love and making memories in a peaceful, rustic, romantic and unforgettable setting! More than just a bed and breakfast, more than a luxury hotel. Our experience was so special and so memorable from the first glimpse of the house and driving past the white fence with the horses behind it and walking up the walkway and knocking on the door, never dreaming it would change our lives irrevocably, for the better and be quite so unforgettable! Thanks to the owner for making this magical haven. And thanks to the wonderful staff there that were so very welcoming and personable from the first day to the last & treated us like their own family. They took the time to not just ensure our comfort, but speak with us and get to know us with a genuine interest and warmth & made us laugh, yet gave us time to be alone too. We will never forget Anthe's musical laugh & twinkling eyes, or Maria's heavenly pancakes and gentle smile. Nor the home where we fell in love all over again, with each other and the house! With all its charm, elements of nature coupled with beautiful aesthetics, and nestled on its own quiet premises, we felt like we were in a different space and time and were able to appreciate things at Seventh Heaven we would not ordinarily be able to such as looking up at the stars at night from the outdoor hot tub, exquisitely fringed with lush foliage and the fresh night air, walking in the sunset past the pond and tree swing, hearing the birds sing on mornings, breakfast on the patio or in the dining room that were lovingly prepared by Maria, or cooking dinner together ourselves in the beautiful and modern kitchen, all these different spaces and environs that we could enjoy the time together in, and connect, and have different experiences in, all in the same place. I fell in love with the house, which seemed like the ultimate labor of love, for someone to create something so beautiful, then share it with the world! Seventh Heaven was clearly built with the finest craftsmanship and attention to detail. Every archway, architectural detail, outdoor seating area and bench beckons to you, as does the unique interiors, antique and modern decor. We stayed in the Celestial Suite and I loved the airy, bright, spacious bathroom, with its textured walls, simple beauty and subtle femininity. If a house could have character, every bit of this one did and the effect of moving through these varied spaces was paramount & incomparable to the typical hotel experience & made it so much more relaxing and fulfilling & so hard to say goodbye to the house, staff and friendly guests that shared their stories, kind words and such a beautiful place with us. Thank you Seventh Heaven for the wonderful memories that we hope to experience again with each other, for many years to come, from Melanie & Xavier!!
