Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean, very easy to work with! Highly recommend this home to others...if we ever have to return to Dallas for another Nationals, we will surely look for this property first. Close to downtown, local restaurants, and markets. Owners are very accommodating to the needs of the renters. Our experience had been nothing less than outstanding, spectacular, stupendous....

Luxury home with high end amenities

  • 4 of 5

Our college sorority sisters reunion for 8 was based perfectly in this home for 4 nights. All agreed it was the best accommodation for us in 40 years of doing this. We cooked one dinner at the house and had most everything we needed in the way of utensils and supplies. Beds and bedding were comfy and high quality. Plenty of seating (living room AND master BR) for sitting and visiting as well as a dining table for 8. Check-in and exit were easy. Parking was tight but we got 2 small cars in garage and others found street parking. No garage door remote was left for us but Rocio provided the garage door code instead. Some of us washed a few loads of clothes and stayed home in the high humidity, enjoying the satellite TV. Loved having Whole Foods so close and the McKinney Street Trolley. All was perfect and we surely would come again if the gals want to return to Dallas someday.

Wonderful house, lovely furnishings and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for my family from England for my son's wedding at the Zaza Hotel. Couldn't have been more perfect. Everyone was able to walk to grocery store (Wholefoods) , the park, Zaza Hotel and the tram which was a novelty. Lovely location in shady tree lined street. Good beds and plenty of nice bedding.

Will have happy memories of our stay at this house every time I visit Uptown Dallas.

We're also owners of a property on VRBO, but this place is a gem and very well stocked and immaculate. We'll most certainly stay again when we're in Dallas.

A Great Fit

  • 5 of 5

We came to the house as a bunch of former college buddies reuniting after 10 years, and the house was setup perfect for it. The dining room table was big enough to seat us for our card games, enough couch space for sitting around and reminiscing, and plenty of options for everyone to find a comfortable spot to sleep at the end of the night.

The house was close enough for us to walk every night to the bars in Uptown, and was an easy drive to the airport and our adventures to Top Golf and other entertainment.

The only potential negative would be the parking/driveway. The house next door was being rented and the shared driveway got blocked at various points. We luckily avoided that hassle by parking on the street, but there was not always a place available in front of the house. That could also be due to the fact that we had rented a huge passenger van.

The house otherwise was perfect, and they were even accommodating by letting us into the house slightly earlier than we were supposed to be.

Overall a great experience!

The Dallas Urban Oasis is located in Uptown's Historic State/Thomas neighborhood, just minutes from Downtown, the Woodall Rodgers Park, and the world-acclaimed Dallas Arts District! State/Thomas is the absolute BEST walkable neighborhood in Dallas, and 2618 Thomas is walking distance to Dallas' best restaurants, night life, shopping, arts, and entertainment.

This newly built, fully furnished and stocked oasis is the perfect home away from home for corporate executives, athletes, celebrities, shoppers, large or small families, or just groups of friends who are coming to Dallas for business or fun!

Walk outside your door and down the street to enjoy some of Uptown's best sports bars, dives, premium restaurants, spas and hotels, or take a short trolley or taxi ride to the Winspear Opera House, the Wiley Theater, One Arts Plaza, Downtown, Northpark Mall (the best shopping in Texas), or to the American Airlines Center for a Mavericks or Stars game or a concert. Also, the Katy Trail, Uptown's incredible running and walking trail, is just minutes away. Use the oasis' bicycles or take a jog to explore Dallas' unique running trail.

For vacationers wanting a discreet, private, two-car garage/first floor entry without the hassle of a hotel desk clerk or check in and hidden hotel costs like overnight parking, this is the place for you! But if you want to jump into the best nightlife that the city has to offer, you'll literally be a few blocks away from Hotel ZaZa, The Ritz Carlton, the Crescent Hotel, the Stoneleigh Hotel and others, plus, you'll be within a short walk, trolley ride, or taxi ride to Uptown's best night clubs.

And this location is truly a shopper's paradise - you're a short cab ride or walk from Stanley Korshak, one of Dallas' finest boutiques. And after an afternoon of shopping, enjoy a long patio lunch/brunch at any of the State/Thomas restaurants just minutes away that were voted 'Best Brunch/Patio Restaurant' in D Magazine.

2618 Thomas is also just steps away from some of the Dallas' most exclusive and encompassing salons and spas. Whether you are seeking full services, a haircut, or blowout, this location is sure to accommodate your needs. And yoga fans will enjoy the yoga studio that is just 3 doors away.

The UT Southwestern Hospital complex, Children's Hospital, Baylor Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Parkland Hospital, and Medical City are all a short drive from the Urban Oasis, and Southern Methodist University and UTD are just up Highway 75. For attorneys in Dallas for depositions, trial prep, or trial, this house is just minutes away from Dallas' state and federal courthouses.

The house is a 6-7 minute drive or cab ride to Dallas' Convention Center in Downtown (public trasportation is also available, but will take you around 30 minutes). The Dallas Urban Oasis is a great get-away for conference-convention vendors/goers, as Downtown Dallas pretty much turns into a ghost town after 5pm each day, whereas Uptown (where the Oasis is located) is Dallas' hotbed for restaurants and nightlife.

But regardless of whether you're in town for business, a concert, a convention, a wedding, a sporting event, a busy week of shopping, to visit family at SMU or at a local hospital, 2618 Thomas Avenue will be there when you're finished. It will be your oasis away from home, a place to wind down, and for family or good friends to gather. Absolutely no pets.
