HOME OF THE LAUGHING DOVES

Dallas House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

Sophisticated living, close to everything. This three bedroom, three bath retreat is located in West Highland Park, minutes to SMU, downtown Dallas, world class shopping, dining, museums, The Design District, Victory Park, sporting events, and internationally acclaimed UT Southwest Medical Center.

Calm and contemporary, the home is located in an upscale, established area with quiet neighbors and low traffic. Past the artful giraffe guarding the front gate, our laughing doves greet you in the entry court. A gourmet kitchen anchors the spacious living areas and allows interaction between the chef and guests. Dual master bedroom wings are private and self contained with separate patios.

Multiple sliding glass doors promote easy flow between inside and out-perfect for casual entertaining. The lushly landscaped outdoor living spaces feature a pool, hot tub, wood burning fireplace and gas grill as well as plenty of seating for lounging.

Whether visiting for a special sporting event, gathering for a girls weekend, family reunion, or just a quiet escape, Laughing Doves is your home away from home.

Lover of Life -Citizen of the World and Big fan of Nature!

Donna Fishel purchased this house in 2008

If you enjoy entertaining and a Zen type of environment - you will find joy, tranquility and laughter here- it is a healing place -

The outdoor pool-hottub,wood burning fireplace and BBQ area are my family's favorite. I personally enjoy the meditation garden whereby we have 3 ring neck doves aka Laughing Doves housed in a beautiful outdoor cage ~ they are delightful and the mascots of the house.

The best experience I have had renting a home ever! The family really enjoyed the quality time that was spent here! Our host was ultimately the best care taker and accommodated to the fullest. The location was super convenient and central to a lot of access to highways and nearby restaurants and malls. Very glad our dates worked out in the busiest travel time of the year. Thank you for everything!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, it was truly a pleasure to share my home with you and your lovely family. It makes my heart sing having the opportunity to be apart of your special celebration.

Best wishes to you all,

Sincerely,
~ Donna Fishel

We had a wonderful time at the beautiful Laughing Doves home. The house completely exceeded our expectations. It was a perfect family gathering place to celebrate a special graduation. There is plenty of room for gathering inside and out! The home is very well equipped for entertaining. The location is very close to SMU and anything you might need to enjoy your stay. We would love to return to simply relax by the beautiful pool!!

As someone who is extremely well traveled across the globe with *extremely* discerning taste, I must say this home exceeded my expectations. I was on a business trip, and decided to combine my travels with spring break....and I brought my husband and children along. The Home of the Laughing Doves definitely met everyones expectations. Donna met me and my family and gave us a full tour of the property. It is DIVINE. As a professional photographer, the images do not do this home justice. It is beautifully decorated, with lovely natural light throughout the home. My boys enjoyed the pool. The neighborhood is quiet, and lovely.

Donna makes sure all your needs are met.

I booked this house for an annual weekend getaway with some of my girlfriends. This home exceeded all of our expectations! What initially sold us on the property was the gorgeous outside area with a pool, spa, and outdoor fireplace. We spent a lot time out there and it was wonderful! The home has a new high end gas grill that made cooking and dining outdoors a breeze. The pool is well maintained and clean. However, the inside of the home was so gorgeous we loved spending time indoors almost as much! The owner has done a wonderful job with the decor. It feels modern, yet comfortable, and she has added a lot of personal touches in the way of unique art and collections. The bedrooms are all huge with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are modern and immaculate. The kitchen is a cook's dream with top of the line appliances. The neighborhood is gorgeous. The neighborhood is comprised of historic, renovated homes as well as stunning newer homes. We loved going on a run and looking at the unique architecture and the giant trees lining the streets. We were located within a short drive of the shopping and dining on McKinney, which is a must, as well as a Whole Foods for groceries. In addition to being a great property, what rounded out the experience was the homeowner, Donna. She was very easy to work with during booking and responded to my questions almost immediately. She even greeted us upon arrival and gave a personal tour of the home and showed us how to work the spa, TV, etc. The only downside to this property, if I had to list one, is that it is somewhat near to the airport and planes would fly over periodically. However, we could not hear them at all indoors and they did not fly over late at night when we were outside. We will definitely stay here again the next time our annual trip makes it way back to Dallas!!
Owner's Response: Erin..

Thank you,

I'm thrilled you enjoyed some " girl " time in my casa... I felt your magnetic energy the minute I came home,
it was immaculate, fresh and felt really warm ~ It was GREAT having you here.

Next time, I promise I'll have the doves here to entertain all of you!
