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.
