Comfortable, Peaceful, Convenient, Secure

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for me. I come to Dallas, alone, for business, at least once a year. This was my first stay here, but if she'll have me back, it won't be my last. I had everything I needed, which was a kitchen with everything I needed to reheat and eat my meals from nearby Central Market (which I also love and highly recommend), a clean bathroom, a comfortable bed, fast and reliable wifi and a place to do some work in the evenings. The only downside to the trip was cold weather so I didn't get to enjoy the patio in the mornings. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay here again.

My daughter and I stayed 3 nights while we were in town touring Graduate schools. The location was perfect and the check in and check out were extremely convenient. Would definitely recommend.

Comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying here. The guesthouse is as described. It is comfortable and roomy . The kitchen is fully equipped and functions well. Julie provided 2 types of coffee machines - wow! The neighborhood is quiet and great for walking. Shops, DART bus and train all within walking distance. I enjoyed my stay and will stay with Julie again the next time I'm in Dallas for an extended stay.

We loved our stay at the Abby Guest House! Perfect for our family and the location could not have been better- close to restaurants and shopping and less than 10 minutes to the state fair! Julie was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again :)
