About Delbert Johnston

Owner and property manager. You will be dealing with me directly and not someone unattached to the condo and activities around the track. I take great pride in your ease of mind knowing you can trust me to tell you everything there is to know about the property and to feel at ease with your commitment to rent my condo.

Delbert Johnston purchased this condo in 1997

Why Delbert Johnston chose Dallas - Fort Worth (DFW)

With one look, this property "sells itself" with its spectacular views of the complex and the well-maintained, clean, comfortable "lived in" look of the interior. This has a "down-home " relaxing atmosphere that is cozy yet high class.

What makes this condo unique

Marvel at the view from the balcony which is only available with condos that are located on each end of the building. Enjoy the splendid sunsets over the grandstands of Texas Motor Speedway through the gigantic window wall that stretches from floor to ceiling and from wall to wall in the living area.

Very nice & clean condo!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo and will definitely book again next time we are visiting Fort Worth. It is very spacious and immaculately clean! It has all the household luxuries that you just don't get a hotel! Location is also ideal, with several restaurants & fast food eateries nearby and a Walmart for grocery shopping nearby. The owner was very quick to respond to all of our questions and very accomadting with our schedule.

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location being close to Fort Worth, Arlington, and Dallas. Plenty of space to walk our dogs. The view of the racetrack was great! Plenty of linen. The couches were very comfortable. Instructions for checking in and out were clear. Had the Texas shaped pool to ourselves.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, I was skeptical when my husband first showed me this property when we were looking to visit Dallas for a few nights. I was confused about staying at a speedway in a mostly empty building. Let me just tell you I was not only pleasantly surprised, I didn't want to leave!!!

It was a home away from home! We have 3 boys and they had their own space and stayed out of our hair. The condo was very well equipped with necessities, it was very clean, and the staff we did see were so incredibly helpful and nice!

And the race track....OH MY! We saw many cars running and the sound of listening to them run was spectacular!! My boys LOVED it and I did too!! The view is amazing with the floor to ceiling glass windows!! They loved sitting on the benches as if they were VIP's to a real race!! And the balcony was an added bonus I didn't realize we would have.

You will not be disappointed in this property or Delbert! GREAT customer service!! We are looking forward to coming back!! My only complaint would be it wasn't a long enough stay!!

My husband also wanted to add that having Buc-ee's across the street was a huge bonus! We made more visits there than I care to admit in such a short visit!!

Owner's Response: Thank you and I'm glad it was more than you expected! Our goal is to provide a "Wow Adventure" when staying at our condo. Buc-ee's has become quite a tourist attraction located just across the street. Many more shops are under construction in the same area including movie theaters and exquisite shopping.

Family event for daughters wedding

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing! Delbert was great, and the location of the condo. made the stress of wedding much easier..

Buc-ee's across the street was AWESOME!

My deposit was returned before I could even make it back to Florida- That was amazing also. I have used VRBO and others sites in the Past, this was by far the easiest visit..

Owner's Response: Thank you! I try to make everything as smooth and carefree as possible. In addition to Buc-ee's being across the street, there is an entire shopping experience under construction just down the road opening 2017.

Very spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We came into town to attend a graduation and visit family nearby. The condo was clean, spacious, and equipped with many amenities. The windows overlooking Texas Motor Speedway provided a dramatic view of the western sky, and the large balcony on the north side gave a partial view of the two other smaller tracks. Although it was a non-race weekend, there was still action at all three tracks. The location was very convenient, just moments away from I-35W and SH 114. We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a "home base" while visiting the northern Tarrant County area.

Although we brought our two dogs, we were concerned about the carpet and furniture. But once we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to see how sturdy and pet-friendly the carpet and furniture were. Access to green space was outside and east of the tower, and litter bags were provided. The parking lot was well-lit, and we felt safe outside at night. Security cameras cover the building, but not the parking lot itself.

The kitchen had most appliances you would need: fridge, stove, oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, blender, etc., as well as a good assortment of utensils, plates, pots, pans, glassware, etc. (The only thing we brought was our Keurig.) The bathrooms were large, and all other appliances worked (washer and dryer, vacuum cleaner, etc.). The two queen beds were comfortable and clean, and we noticed several roll-away beds.

Working with Delbert was pleasant. He was very responsive and walked us through the process of completing the paperwork and mailing us the key. This was the first time for us to use VRBO, so we needed a little extra care!

The only drawbacks were the lack of televisions and WiFi. However, we knew this was the case going in, so it wasn't really an issue. (It was also nice to unplug from those devices for a few days.)

Best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great for any event. Our group came to stay for a concert in the area and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We even were able to watch some cars practice on the track one night. Great host, amazing view and even better balcony views as well as space to accommodate. Will be returning!
