TWO PERSON TWO NIGHT MINIMUM - BEAUTIFUL GUESTHOUSE IN THE GARDEN

Dallas Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Quaint guesthouse for 2 people located in the best location in Dallas.

Our quaint guest house, located in an extremely safe and central location of Dallas TX was originally built in 1918, and has been renovated over the years. There is a two night minimum. There is a full sized bed and the guesthouse is great for a maximum of 2 people. During spring and summer our guests can use our beautiful pool or at all times can relax in the yard or under the overhang of the guest house. Te pool is for use only by our guests. The guest house has central heat and air conditioning, free internet access, a large flat screen TV with cable access to hundreds of channels, microwave, extremely comfortable full sized bed, small refrigerator, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, dishes, glasses, wine opener and lots of towels. The guest house has been fenced off from the rest of the yard so you can enjoy your privacy. The bedroom has a table and chairs for eating or working on your laptop. Parking is on the street. Wonderful restaurants, stores and SMU are within walking distance and the Katy Trail for running, biking and walking is very close by to our guest house. We are just about an 8 minute walk to bus line 21 at McKinney and Monticello, a five minute ride to downtown and about a 15 minute walk to the local train at Mockingbird Station. We have a yellow labrador retriever Sophie who lives in our home which is located next to the guest house. We cherish our guests and have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. We wish you safe journeys always.

Will and I have been partners for almost 9 years. I am an attorney and have been practicing law for over 36 years. I graduated from SMU Law School in 1977 and Cornell University in 1974. My areas of practice include criminal defense, family law, probate and wills, traffic ticket defense and personal injury. My partner Will has worked for Mary Kay for 21 years and is a engineer in the factory. He has two children, 19 and 21.We also have a yellow labrador retriever Sophie who was born on 11-12-11. We love traveling and meeting people from all over the world. Renting out guest house has been a fantastic experience.

Marty and Will purchased this cottage in 2001

I love the neighborhoods close to SMU where I received my law degree. Most of my neighbors have knocked down the old cottages, but I decided to renovate my charming 1918 cottage and the old garage which has become the guest house. The neighborhood has wonderful restaurants, shopping and is very safe. My home is close to the Katy Trail, downtown and SMU.

You will love the sitting area under the overhang of the guest house, the beautiful pool and our serene and well-landscaped yard. There is plenty of furniture in the yard to enjoy sitting outside and reading a book or sipping on a glass of wine. The Katy Trail is easily accessed from the guest house. You can jog, walk or bike on the Katy Trail. This neighborhood is extremely safe and is centrally located.

AN OASIS

  • 5 of 5
We came here for an anniversary trip, not knowing how much we were going to enjoy the place where we stayed. It met all of our expectations and so much more. We had planned so many outings which we thoroughly enjoyed, but what made this trip so special was coming back to our little oasis. Marty and Will are both very personable - the perfect hosts. They were knowledgable about the area, giving many tips. The private guest pad was perfect for us, and on a hot 100 degree day, a dip in the pool was a refreshing relief. Since most of our outings revolved around biking, the direct access to the Katy Trail from their property made it that much more appealing. We loved that this property was so close to so many of the local attractions - art district, restaurants, uptown, museums, etc. We particularly enjoyed seeing Les Miserables at the Wyly Theater, the Katy Trail Ice House on Katy Trail for burgers, Eatzi's (a local fresh Italian market that plays opera music), the MADI museum (free) which displays modern geometric art, and The Crooked Tree Coffee Shop. We look forward to visiting Will and Marty again soon.

EXCELLENT FIND

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Was small but all we needed for a great weekend. Close to down town and with in walking distance of so much to do. Right on the walking trail and was beautiful. Owners were so nice, friendly and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we need. We will rent again when we go back to Dallas in the future if available.

This small guest house was perfect for my husband and I. We only slept and had breakfast there and it worked well. It was close to a transportation station, from which we did all our getting around Dallas. The SMU neighborhood was very nice with great restaurants.

SAFE, PRIVATE, COZY

  • 5 of 5
Perfect for a single person on business or personal trip. It was very cold during my stay and the owner called to check that I was ok. Safe neighborhood for a traveling businesswoman who loves to run outdoors. Clean, convenient, and cozy.

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
The only bad thing about a good review is that other people start to find these great homes:-) This little cottage was perfect for my husband and I. It's located in a BEAUTIFUL neighborhood! The location is AWESOME! It was close to running paths, shops, and downtown! Cottage was clean and cozy! We would love to come in the summer and enjoy the large deck outside. The owner was very nice and helpful! We have no complaints and are looking forward to coming again.

A VERY SMALL STUDIO FOR TWO PEOPLE FOR FOUR DAYS

  • 3 of 5
Our stay was uneventful and undistinguished. We hadn't realized from the VRBO pictures and description that the unit was a studio composed of a bedroom (with a double bed, an armoire with eight clothes hangers and one drawer [for two people for four days!], a small elevated table with two bar-stool-height chairs under the TV set) and a bathroom with no counter space and no shelf space at all. A microwave and a very small refrigerator comprised the kitchen-in-the-bathroom. There were enough dishes to feed four--with no table to seat them, and no place to prepare a meal. Reading the description, I had not realized the unit was so small. If'd asked the right questions, I wouldn't have selected this unit for our four days.

That said, apart from the ants that immediately attacked the bagged trail mix we put into the only possible "kitchen" drawer, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom supplied with a good shower and plenty of hot water. The heat, while very windy in such a small space, was adequate to the task of a very cold snap in Dallas.

This is a converted pool house, suitable for one person for a short stay in which s/he plans to be out of the unit for most of the time except to sleep and bathe. (In warmer weather the property might be more desirable, as the pool might be available to use, and one could sit outside the pool house on the patio instead of inside on the bed.)

Parking is on the street and subject to availability, requiring what might for some guests be a long walk with suitcases, but the unit is all at ground level. The neighborhood is safe and attractive, and shops and restaurants are nearby and good. (Try the Kozy 2 Cafe on McKinnon Street: excellent!)

We met the owners once, who seemed cordial and offered help if we needed it. One of them called me before we were to arrive to be certain I knew how to get in, which I appreciated very much.
