nice but need renovations

  • 3 of 5

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.

Perfect Size and Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is well maintained and lovingly decorated by its very obliging owner. My son and I spent 10 days here over the Christmas holiday and it turned out to be perfect for us. We were close enough to family members who live in Ovilla to make daily trips back and forth while enjoying our own space for sleeping and cooking. The beds are comfortable and the country setting is relaxing with a small town friendly atmosphere. Nine tornadoes struck the Dallas area on December 26th. We were visiting family in Frisco at the time but the owner called us to be sure we were OK. This beautiful Victorian home was spared any damage and I'm sure we will return again some day to enjoy its many charms.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while we were 'home' for Christmas and it was THE most comfortable and relaxing stay. The house is absolutely wonderful and had plenty of room for my family of 5. The grounds were fantastic and we even had a fire pit which we used almost every night. The beds were so comfortable and the area was very quiet. We really enjoyed the sitting room off of the master suite. There is plenty of seating and cozy places to relax around the house both upstairs and down. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook as well as things to help with clean up. It is about a 25 min drive to Dallas/Arlington but very little traffic on the roads going up there and it is very easy to get around. Totally worth the drive to stay in this quaint and quiet setting. This would be a wonderful place for a wedding with beautiful grounds and little decorative things everywhere you look: fountains, arbors, benches and statues. The owner, Loreen, was the best owner I have ever worked with. She made the trip even better! Anything we needed or had questions about she was right there. I highly recommend staying in this house. You will not be disappointed! We will definitely be back!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this quaint house located just South of Dallas. You feel like you are in the country even though you are close to the big city.

The house has all of the amenities you will need for all events. A great location for a wedding with a big back yard. Also works for a romantic vacation.

We had a wonderful week just hanging out with friends and family!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect property! Away from the crowds but close enough to enjoy everything Dallas/Fort Worth has to offer and less expensive than most Dallas/Ft Worth hotels. It is a beautiful setting in the country and has everything you need in a home. Definitely our home away from home the next time we are in Dallas. Loreen (the owner) is wonderful and accommodating. Any info you need, she can find. We highly recommend this property. Very clean and well-maintained - looks just like the pictures. Only 30 minutes from Texas Stadium, Ranger Stadium, Six Flags, etc. Perfect place to stay.

Great for couple, family or party

  • 4 of 5

This place is more beautiful than the pictures. There is also an outside deck, beautiful flowers, a huge backyard, nearby creek- my 7 year old son loved it. It is located in Ovilla, Texas which is about a 20 minute drive to Dallas and about a 30 minute drive to Arlington. The only drawback was that she did not accept credit card payments which she said that she would be setting up soon.

If you are just looking to relax, enjoy the clean air and bright stars then you are in the perfect spot at the Villa. Enjoy a nice fire outside or in, play games and enjoy the company in this quite small town!
