Cheerful, cozy cottage in the city

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay

So much better than any hotel in that price range. The guest house was clean, comfortable, with warm blankets, and toiletries available in case you forget something...felt very much at home.. It is conveniently located right off of the highway in the coolest neighborhood, with great food choices two blocks away! Didn't get to meet Julie or her doggies but since we were pretty tired at the end of the day we were grateful for the privacy. Thank you Julie, hope we get to stay in your place again. It is perfect!

Cosy & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

This homestay served our needs while we stopped over in Dallas while on holiday from New Zealand. Although we did not have any contact from the host while there, we had all that was required supplied. There was a good variety of visitor information, maps etc in the homestay which were helpful.

Julie provided concise direction options to arrive at the property. The unit was very well presented

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our brief stay and would definitely return, it's located in a quiet residential street, close to transport and an easy walk to shops and restaurants. It is also an easy walk to the train if you would like a nice walk. The unit has everything necessary to feel at home. The location is very quiet with no road noise.

Great location for downtown Dallas!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location for getting around the downtown area of Dallas. The street it is on is grand and filled with lovely older homes and huge trees, very nice! The accommodations were adequate but dated. The place is due for a remodel and upgrade in furniture. For our purpose it was adequate but I wouldn't have wanted to stay there over a few days as it wasn't that fancy.

We had limited contact with owner but I didn't get the impression she was talkative. We did ask for more coffee and she did ground some up for us. As far as things in the bungalow, there was shampoo, body wash, some beer and odds and ends left from previous occupants which was nice. There wasn't a dishwasher or washer/dryer but we managed! We did struggle a bit on how to use the dehumidifier (like how to drain it) and it seemed like a bigger one would be better because without it it was hot in the place. There were a few lightbulbs out (we left her a note) but most other things seemed to be in working order.

I would recommend the place on price and location but if you like a fancier place, pass on this one.

Owner's Response: We suggest all guests read property descriptions, and look at the photos before booking. We supply what people need in their homes, if you want fancy, you need to stay in one of the many fabulous, expensive hotels or resorts in town. The description clearly states, this rental is for independent budget travelers who want to experience Dallas like a local with the amenities of home. It is not a hotel or BNB with a full time concierge. Sneaking in early, hours before check in time, is not only against hospitality rules, it's rude. As is banging on the doors any time you feel like it. These behaviors are disrespectful, which explains the lack of conversation. We are happy to talk with nice guests at anytime. :)

We went to Dallas and stayed at Julie's cottage. We had a great time. It was in walking distance to restaurants, in a beautiful neighbor hood.
