Our townhome is an older property in original condition, located on a very quiet street in the Northern section of Uptown near the West Village Entertainment area. The neighborhood we are in is on a beautiful tree lined street. The property and complex has a very casual retro modern feel and is fully furnished. Several famous local artists live near by and have actually lived in our property before we purchased it.
It has a spacious open floor plan plus it is very bright and airy. It is a two (2) story (floors) configuration with relatively steep stairs leading up to the second floor. It includes all of the amenities needed to make your stay comfortable and at home. As such, we also have an additional queen size blow-up air mattress that you are free to use if needed.
Feel free to access the entire townhouse including a secluded private wooded courtyard, and secure garage. You also have direct access to the "Katy Trail" through a keypad coded gate from our property.
Общение с гостями
Access to the town house is fully automated, meaning that you can come and go as you see fit without having to schedule a meeting time with the hosts (us) to get a key and let you in like some other AirBnB properties require. We have installed keyless entry WiFi enabled door locks on the front and back doors. The cool thing about these door locks is that they are integrated directly with AirBnB's reservation system API. Once you confirm your reservation through AirBnB's reservation system you SHOULD receive a unique 4 digit door code for your use during your reservation time period. The beauty of this technology is that our house is completely self-serve in that you can arrive and depart at your leisure. The added bonus is that you don't have to worry about keeping track of a key!
In the odd case that you do NOT receive this 4 digit code via email, please let us know and we can provide it to you on the fly. Also, if you get to the property and your code is not working for whatever reason, please call us immediately and we can unlock the door remotely for you or provide you with a temp PIN code.
Additionally, we will be more than happy to give you assistance or ideas of cool things to do. We will also attempt to send you a personal guide book and house manual we created covering many good things to see, do, and eat that we have personally vetted. If you do not receive it after booking, please remind us to send it! This same info is also available in the AirBnB phone app.

My notes about the Katy Trail :
The vibe of the Katy Trail is amazing. People are walking, running, riding their bikes, roller blading and walking their dogs. There's plenty of room to pass people, run at your own pace, and not feel like you're on top of everyone else. Such a fun place to be. Love Katy Trails! It is surrounded by the planted trees and plants, it's wonderful to walk, bike, run, rollerblade, or simply stroll on this trail! The scenery changes from season to season; actually from day to day! When it's a gorgeous day, the trail is always crowded; yet during these sizzling hot summer days, I have the trail for my very own most times! On a Saturday morning let me tell you, this trail is packed with people. Great people watching for sure! There are also a few restaurants and pubs that are attached to the trail as well. There's always something new I notice each time I am here! Nature opening my hearing, seeing, smelling, and feeling senses to their utmost!
There are also several Dallas Trolley Stops that are very close to several various Katy Trail access points.
Our town house is an older home inside and out. This complex was built in the 1970s and the exterior has not been disturbed, giving it a cool retro 70s vibe. We have updated the appliances, lighting, furniture, and bedding throughout the house. The pictures we have provided are EXACTLY as the property is in REAL LIFE (no photoshop). What you see is what you will get! ;-)
If you are NEW to AirBnB, please set your expectations that this is NOT a hotel! This is one of the original townhouse complexes first built in this unique Dallas neighborhood. Being an older property it is not perfect and things sometimes break, but we try to keep it maintained the best we can. This is also our personal vacation home and multitudes of AirBnB guests have really enjoyed it! It may not be as fancy as compared to chic 5 star hotel, but it is laid back, comfortable, in a great location, and our house keeping team does the best job they can to clean/wash/sanitize to make it ready before and after each guest's stay. There is no maid service or cleaning service provided by us during your stay. If you wish to have a maid service come in, you are welcome to arrange and pay for that yourself. We do provide all the basics for you to perform your own cooking, cleaning, and washing on your own.
We are located in a very peaceful community with a strict HOA (Home Owners Association) that we want to be pleased with our AirBnB activity. Please make every attempt not to call attention to yourself with loud noises, music, parties, or other disturbances of the peace. We would like to continue offering our home to the AirBnB community and would like to enlist your help in doing so by following the above request. On a positive note, being located in such a quiet complex the likelihood of encountering other residents is extremely rare!
Plenty of shaded street parking in front of the unit on our tree lined street. We do have a SMALL one car (economy car) garage in back, which you are welcome to park in. It will NOT fit a large SUV. The only rule on the garage / parking is that there is NO parking allowed outside of the garage in back of our garage. General rule of thumb : "In the garage is cool, outside of garage in back on driveway is not!" Neighbors don't want their access blocked. ;-)
Did we mention that we LOVE pets? Why yes we do! Pets are welcome!
Though we're living in Florida now, I have a soft spot for Texas! I am a SMU marketing grad who enjoyed time driving the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile and working in advertising/marketing in the Dallas area. I'm now a full time Floridian raising two wild monkeys (OK maybe children) and a silly labrador by the sea. I hope you enjoy our beautiful townhome....we have had many good times there enjoying the thriving Dallas metropolis!
