Nice and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this property January 17 - 21, 2018 because my daughter was having her first baby Dallas. First let me say that negotiating the dates for the birth of a baby can be challenging. Karen Gawley was more than accommodating of our needs. We have a large family (6 adults and 5 grandchildren) and this house gave us more than enough room to spread out. The bathrooms are updated and the beds are comfortable. Televisions with cable , apple tv were in all rooms.The kitchen was well appointed and the perfect size for us. What I loved in the kitchen was the community pantry. There were staples already there that I didn't have to run out and buy (coffee, paper towels, sugar, etc.) These items were left from previous guests. And the hit of the house for grandchildren was the media room with a large screen tv and an elevated seating area. This house was in a great location right only a block off of Hillcrest. It was close to the my daughter's house, as well. We have already started planning to stay again this summer to take advantage of the swimming pool and back patio area. Thanks Karen for making this special time in our lives so easy!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Home. We chose to stay in a Home instead of a hotel as we had 9 family members needing to stay together and visit other family to celebrate the holidays. It was the perfect location to explore Dallas, visit Frisco, and Little Elm. Would definitely stay there again!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the property as wonderful as advertised, Karen is wonderful to work with - she opened the house and walked through where to find special items in the kitchen, how to use Apple TV (I had never used one before) and ensure we were set up with WiFi and directions to the nearest Central Market. It was too cold to get to splash around, but for those booking during warmer times, it's a really lovely pool and back deck area. We'll definitely be looking to stay again the next time my Family gathers in Dallas. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
