Perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to visit Dallas area in anticipation of birth of my grandson. We rented the house for about 30 days. My wife and I stayed the entire time accompanied by our two Boston terriers. Other family members stayed, at times comfortably housing 6 adults 1 child. We celebrated New Years and Christmas with with my son, his wife and a new born baby. The property was clean and well maintained. There was a nice fenced yard for the dogs. The owners were cordial and we felt welcomed. The driving to Dallas was efficient and there were many shopping opportunities including outlet malls, Cabela's and very good barbecue, steakhouses, and Tex-Mex restaurants. It was a wonderful family celebration. I would highly recommend this location to others and would hope to be welcomed back at some future time.

Thanksgiving in Texas!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home in McKinney, TX- the owners/hosts occupy the house next door and are available as needed but will also stay out of your way and give you the privacy you deserve. The house is warm in color/design and spacious- there's a great tub in the master bathroom downstairs and the upstairs bedrooms are comfortable and also offer a shared sitting/tv (I think there's a tv- we never turned that one on!) space with couch as well. The kitchen is stocked with modest but plentiful options for cooking anything you might need or want and there's both pantry and fridge space for all of your own items. The table in the eating area hosts a bar-style high top table, so be sure to travel with appropriate seating if you have smaller ones with you. You may need to make a few other "kid proofing" adjustments, but we've even had to do that at some hotels now and again and it's nothing that can't be accomplished in a 5 minutes or less- well worth it if you ask me! In the warmer months they have a pool out back- made of hay bales but great. Our 2 and 4 year olds loved it on a previous visit! They also have a small chicken coop and some great gardening going on that was fun to see and be around- but that's in their yard space not yours. You have a ping-pong table, basketball hoop, foosball, darts and a game system at your disposal :) A quiet family vacation, a place for a more social-party space.. it can go either way. Good neighborhood for biking, walking, running or heading to the nearby -large!- playground. close to the highway for access into Dallas. Enjoy!

Cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a home renovation that required us to move out of our house for a week and we stayed at this cozy home away from home. It was very clean and comfortable. My husband really enjoyed the arcade games. I enjoyed the super comfortable beds. Patrick and Jody are wonderful hosts. They took very good care of us during our stay. We had a great experience and if the opportunity ever arises we will stay again.

Home away from home and then some!!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this place was immaculate. Perfectly appointed, open spaces, perfect for me, my husband and our two small daughters. We ALL had a blast on the video arcade. Over 5000+ games! Lots of games from 'back in the day' :) The girls thoroughly enjoyed the straw bale pool too. But it really was just like home. Very comfortable and so close to anything we wanted or needed. Patrick and his wife were very sweet and extremely accommodating to us and we are very grateful. If we make it back to McKinney, we will definitely give Patrick a call!

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I were "homeless" in between house selling and buying, and this was the perfect place for us. Great location, amenities, and of course, an accommodating host. Highly recommend.
