Guestbook comments from the owner
This home is beautiful and it was a lovely time of year to visit. My husband is handicapped so I don't have many choices of vacation homes in Dallas to bring him to because of the accessibility, not many places are so accommodating.

WE LOVED OUR STAY! WHEN CAN WE RETURN???

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time and the house met all of our needs and more! It's in an excellent location, as we love to go into the city every day and our family is in Ft Worth. My favorite part of the house was the amazing pool area. I woke up early every morning to get some work done and would sit on the downstairs patio looking over the pool, as I worked on my laptop. It doesn't get better than that! Thank you for accommodating us. We will definitely contact you in the future to stay there again. Management was very helpful and took care of any needs that we had while we were there. Thanks again for everything!

MAGNIFICENT CENTRAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our eight year old son stayed at the home in July and it was an awesome home and location. We had tickets to local theaters most evenings. We are not lodge-people; we like a private home with a great location and swimming pool.

After a busy day on the road, having a nice, clean place to prepare our evening meal was just right for us. The living room had a comfy sofa for stretching out to watch some TV (or catch some ZZZ's).

This arrangement was just right for us. The good water pressure in the bathroom made for a pleasant start to each vacation day. Something we are not use to in the country we live in. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of room to organize our belongings.

I don’t know where to begin complimenting this home; location, location, location, beautifully decorated, perfect size kitchen and well stocked with a large swimming pool, and responsive & accommodating local property managers (BIG thank you family)!!

We would highly recommend this lovely home away from home for people who enjoy setting their own vacation pace and who enjoy an attractive and inviting place to recharge their batteries after a busy day of golfing, shopping or sightseeing.

We truly loved this home and would love to come back!

Giving Thanks for a Nice Getaway From 3

  • 5 of 5
My fiancée and I decided we needed a vacation. I was tasked with finding a perfect one-week getaway and Texas was definitely it. The home is fully stocked with everything you would want for a peaceful romantic retreat. They have done an amazing job of stocking this retreat with all the little touches that make it feel as one is coming home to their own magical retreat. Every drawer and nook held another wonderful surprise that made our trip just that more perfect. It is clearly evident that the owners love this home as much as their guests. They have left no detail unchecked with property and they were both excited and happy to offer advice on what to do in the local area. For a first time visitor to the Dallas, their vast knowledge and willingness to share was invaluable. We went biking every morning on miles of trails that surround the property. We grilled almost every night and enjoyed much needed relaxing soaks in the hot tub on the tranquil patio. It was a spectacular feeling to relax and simply gaze at the pitch-black country sky full of stars one will never see in the city. A rainy day meant chili in our crock-pot and Casablanca on the TV (thanks to their wonderful movie selection). A second rainy day was no worse. We simply enjoyed the peaceful silence that comes from no outside distractions. The pitter-patter of raindrops on the roof recalled a simpler time while we relaxed on the couch each with a good book. No annoying cell phone calls, no intrusive Internet, no loud neighbors, just the wonderful luxury that is peace and quiet. We loved reading books from their diverse selection and wine tasting at some of the local wineries. Dinner was a wonderful experience. The best part of the trip was being able to bring our Scottie. He loved chasing the numerous rabbits that inhabit the property and we loved not having to worry about him in a kennel for the week. It was great to have our entire family (man, woman and Scottie) together on vacation. It truly was Heaven on Earth. We are already planning our next trip!

Super Vacation Enjoyed

  • 5 of 5
The home was beautiful and had everything we could possibly have needed! We enjoyed sitting outside looking at the beautiful view and relaxing in the hot tub. Our only complaint would be that we weren't aware that the house next door was not a great view- they are building a fence to help... Other than that, it was a perfect location and we enjoyed our stay.

We visited fine shops and enjoyed a few festivals going on for the early season of the holiday. Golf was a must and boy did we find the best. Right up the road only a couple miles. We enjoyed some nice hot air balloon watching in the early mornings. That was sure something I had no idea I would get to see.

We are booking at the end of the year and bringing my sister and family back.
Should be a hoot when I get those city folks to the country. Thanks Emma for making our stay a great one!

Not As Described - WARNING! Read before renting!

  • 1 of 5
We arrived to find this home entirely mis-represented and mis-managed. We had a group of 10 and several others coming and going. We called once we arrived and asked to have some of these issues addressed. We received NO RESPONSE from the management company during our 6 night stay. In fact, I believe my calls were deliberately sent to VM. At one point, a 'maintenance' man arrived to pick up packages that had been delivered there. We mentioned our problems to him and -- no surprise -- he not only knew about them already but had excused for why none of these issues had been addressed. Here are our major complaints:

1. the home smells like old 'antique' furniture (think mold)
2. it absolutely had not been cleaned - layers of dust everywhere
3. the two most-used drawers in the kitchen were broken so it was a struggle to get out silverware each time.
4. the home sleeps 13+ people. There were 10 (mismatched) plates, 8 bowls and only 8 pillows. There are NO extra blankets or sheets and only 8 bath towels.
4. The dryer makes a horrendous metal-on-metal grinding noise.
5. No propane for the grill. We ended up purchasing a tank only to find out that the grill itself was so completely rusted out inside that it could not be used.
6. there was bird poop on the outdoor furniture and all over the patio. No sun shades as shown.
7. The photos are misleading - there is a pile of crap - old exercise equipment in the corner outside, tiles falling off the swiming pool, every nook and cranny in the home is filled with fake plants, old furniture and feels very crowded.
8. The toilet in the upstairs bathroom leaks so you will need to use one of your 8 bath towels to lay on the floor behind it. The floor under the shower has dry-rot.
9. The home sleeps 13 and is equipped with a 4-cup coffee maker. I requested a full size one and the maintenance man said he had to get 'authorization' to spend $15 on a new one because people keep breaking them. (isn't that what the deposit is for?!) We never got one.
10. The garbage outside had been there for so long it was full of maggots. With no more room in the garbage cans, we had to leave our bags on the ground.

Do your research and you will see that 99% of the reviews on this property were left on the same day by "renters" who conveniently all created a VRBO user profile on the same two days. If you'd like to see photos of what this home really looks like inside or out, just contact me directly. I'm happy to share them.

Our Country Christmas Gathering

  • 5 of 5
The beautiful peaceful home and well maintained property is set among a few likeminded neighbors. It is close to McKinney and the upscale outdoor mall on Bethany exit in Allen off 75, where we also enjoyed Cabella's, the Vitamin Shoppe, Paradise Bakery and Café, and the Cheesecake Factory. Further into Plano was the fun of Whirleyball and bowling in Main Event. Ice skating at the Galleria on the toll road and 635, a family tradition, is nearby.
The home was perfect for my family of 3 grown children, 4 yr old grandson, my husband and me. The kitchen was gorgeous, full of light, and well stocked. We put the 2 extra chairs at the table, making room for us all. The bedrooms were all lovely, and the bathrooms were immaculate. The managers were wonderful to work with, who cared about our stay, and were immediately available for a question.
I also loved being in this home because it reminded me of the one my husband and I had built to raise our children in. I was so pleasantly blessed. The open acreage made for a beautiful night sky. Though it was too cold for swimming in the beautiful pool area, we hope to return in the summer to enjoy that aspect.
Coming from Alabama, East Texas, West Texas, and Fort Worth to converge, this home made our Christmas Gathering an unforgettable memory to last a lifetime!
