                                                                Perfect girls getaway spot.

                                                                The front porch was perfect for sipping tea and watching the birds. The beds were comfortable, the decorations adorable and the yard was beautiful. It was close to all the touristy things that we wanted to see, too.

                                                                Thank you so very much for your kind words! It was such a pleasure to be able to host you and your friend. You were a delight from the first phone conversation to checkout. I would love to have you girls back again sometime!


                                                                Brett and Loreen

                                                                Beautiful property with gracious hosts

                                                                Dave S.

                                                                Loreen and her son Brett were fantastic, gracious hosts, who were able to accommodate our stay on very short notice. They greeted us at the property to check us in and give us the tour, and even provided some snacks and food staples -- finding a half-gallon of milk for our use was a welcome relief as we were traveling with a 2.5 year old, saved us a trip to the store. They also made sure we knew that they were available and responsive for the duration of our stay.

                                                                My wife and I were travelling with our daughter to visit some relatives in the area, and this house ended up being perfect for us due to its layout. The upstairs has 2 smaller bedrooms (one of which we had our daughter sleeping in) and 1 master suite that has an attached living area on the far side with table, couch, and TV, as well as a full bath. It's convenient to be able to put the kid to sleep and retreat to that suite knowing that we won't wake her.

                                                                We found the location a good balance of rural/quiet but also near to stores, restaurants, etc. We'd love to stay here again on our next visit to the area. Thank you so much Loreen and Brett!

                                                                Owner's Response:

I am glad that we were able to make you stay enjoyable. Looking forward to having you and your wonderful family stay again soon. Thank you for the great communication and cleanliness!

                                                                A true example of charm and southern hospitality!

                                                                My maid of honor and I stayed here over the first weekend of December for just a small girls getaway and we were awed at the incredible hospitality from Loreen and Brett! I have been looking at wedding venues for the past few months and this is definitely the place that fits all of my expectations! We had wanted to stay somewhere outside of Dallas but not far enough that we felt too distanced from the city. The location is perfect! Brett was there to answer any of our questions and was very attentive and paid attention to detail so well! We were greeted with a bottle of wine and cupcakes as well as a tea tray (I prefer tea over coffee and I had mentioned that in our previous conversation). The house is GORGEOUS and Is a wonderful place to relax and unwind at whether it's 2 people or 10 people. I am so excited to book with the Villas again, and hopefully for my wedding!

I am so very grateful to be able to share the property with others such as yourself. You are so sweet! I look forward to hosting you all again !

                                                                We live in Ovilla. Our air conditioner crashed in July. Installation of the new unit couldn't be completed in one day because the unit is located in the attic; by 11:00 am it was too hot for the guys to safely work in the attic. There was no way we were able to stay the night in our house. Fortunately for us, there was room at the Villa. We packed our toothbrushes and moved in for the night. It's location is good for walking, e.g., not busy with car traffic, and we took advantage of that. Later picked up a pizza at a local Italian restaurant, as well as a bottle of wine. Sat outside, with the cool breeze, ate pizza and sipped wine. Finally, settled into bed with air conditioning and slept wonderfully! It was quiet and peaceful, which was what we needed. And did I mention it has air conditioning? :-)

                                                                nice but need renovations

                                                                barbara m.

                                                                Had a nice stay. Owner was kind of strict as if there was going to be wild parties going on because it was my birthday. Did not want us to bbq and said there was no grill but there was one by the garbage cans. Company over 10 people was called an event. Did not feel at home because of that fact. When company comes to my house whether it is 1 or 20 I never heard it being called an event unless you planned it. I informed her that no events was planned but I do have family and friends that potentially would visit. Home needs updating regarding finishing the claw bathtub which painted job was peeling. Need shower in master bedroom. Home need more cleaning due to dusty areas. Need better organization and updated utensils and cookware. Need better garbage cans to keep critters out. Home had 3 garbage cans and only one had top which did not fit the best. Last but not least the cushions on the outdoor funiture needed replacing. 

                                                                Owner's Response:
