Read the reviews! Exquisitely beautiful home in superb location that's the perfect destination for a family vacation, romantic getaway, business trip, or relaxing weekend in Dallas.
The house is spacious, welcoming and exceptionally well appointed. Contemporary decor and comfortable furnishings combine with original artwork from the owner's private collection to create a sanctuary that you'll want to keep coming back to. Bedroom suites are self-contained, allowing for privacy, and the comfy beds and fine linens will make you want to lounge and linger. Master suite boasts a large sunken tub and separate dressing rooms for you and your partner.
But it's the spacious gourmet kitchen and living room that are the center of gravity here and perfect for entertaining, communal cooking, family dinners, and kicking back. For more formal entertaining, an elegant dining room seats 10.
As many of our guests have commented, the outside space is a serene extension of the calming environment you'll find indoors. It's simply magical. There's a zen-like indoor courtyard and meditation garden where you can wind down with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. But the pool area at the back is the crown jewel of this very special property. Complete with hot tub, outdoor fireplace, high-end grill and ample seating, lounging and patio space, this is the perfect environment for relaxing and socializing all day long and into the wee hours. What's more, the owner takes a keen interest in her plants and shrubbery so you're always surrounded by a colorful and well-tended garden.
Location: second to none. West Highland Park. Leafy and peaceful, it's one of Dallas's most sought-after neighborhoods. Easy access to DFW and Love Field airports. A stone's throw from Whole Foods. And close to SMU, downtown Dallas, world class shopping, dining, museums, The Design District, Victory Park, sporting events, and internationally acclaimed UT Southwest Medical Center.
You'll never forget your stay at the Home of the Laughing Doves!

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.
We were two families with small children in Dallas to visit family, and this house was exactly what we needed. There was ample space for everyone to run about, and the pool was fantastic for all of us. Everything was clean, well-maintained, and Donna and Mark were both so attentive and accommodating. The house is located close to shopping, some of our families' favorite restaurants - Bob's Chop House, Twisted Root, etc. - is situated so that it has easy access to most of the major roads in Dallas. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and entertaining friends and family here. I can't recommend this place enough.
If circumstances arrange for me to stay in DFW again, I will be reserving the Home of the Laughing Doves. The property is beautiful with wonderful art from the owner's travels, extremely comfortable beds, and a floorplan that easily converts from private wings to flowing openness. The courtyard and pool area are decadent and the kitchen is gourmet-quality amazing. I expected air traffic noise to be a problem due to the proximity to Dallas Love Field, but inside nothing could be heard and outside it was infrequent. Several wonderful restaurants also deliver if you're too relaxed to use the kitchen (just check grubhub.com).
Don't think twice about arranging your stay to be at the Home of the Laughing Doves. You won't regret it.
The pictures don't do this place justice. Short drive to downtown, or a 30 minute drive to Arlington and several attractions. Extremely private and makes you feel isolated from the bustling city just outside. Loved the outdoor patio and pool area. Worth the money.
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!
House is gorgeous and has everything you could ever need. Even better than the pictures. Donna was so accommodating with our schedule and made sure everything was perfect for us. Location is great. Will not disappoint!
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!!
Laughing Doves is centrally located with easy access to DFW Airport, Dallas Love Field,UT Southwest Medical Center, Dallas Market Center, American Airlines Arena, AT&T Performing Arts center and a multitude of notable shopping and restaurant experiences..
