About Douglas Barrilleaux

I am a south Louisiana native who spent the last 12 years in Dallas and 9 of those refurbishing this Prairie Style home. We love this house and hope that you will as well. We were very torn on our move back to Louisiana and away from Dallas and our St. Thomas community that we were so fond of. We did not have the heart to sell the home we have so many good memories of, and have not ruled out returning to it at some point in time.

Douglas Barrilleaux purchased this house in 2003

Why Douglas Barrilleaux chose Dallas

This home is conveniently located in East Dallas. It is a very short drive to the Dallas Convention Center (3.8 mi) and anything else in the downtown area. Convenient access to I30, 135, I45 or Central Expressway. Whole Foods is just down the street along with Starbucks and many other local conveniences. The Sante Fe trail is located 2 blocks away for the joggers and bikers, and there are tennis courts just around the corner. Tenison Golf Course (public) is approximately 2 miles away and Lakewood Golf Course (private) is less than that. This house is located in the Historic Junius Heights District next to Lakewood and Hollywood Heights. With the pool in the back yard and pool table in the game room, there is plenty to keep everyone occupied while visiting. Come stay with us and you'll be sure to have a good time.

This house is even better than the photos. The pool was amazing. Clean and comfortable despite all the rain we've had recently. Hot tub was perfectly hot once we figured out the controls. Sound system in and outside. Pool house also has sound system and the billiards table was a nice addition. We didn't have any kids with us this trip, but we'll be going back to DFW next year with our kids and I can see us staying here again if it's available.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house with a few other friends for wrestlemania this year. This house was beautiful and huge! From the pictures I could see there was many beds, and lots of space for us all to be comfortable. When we arrived we were more than happy! The entire house was gorgeously decorated in this rustic like theme. The rooms are all hardwood flooring and extremely clean! Bathrooms are beautiful with unique wood and brickwork that will blow you away. When you first come in there is a bedroom over to the side with its own bathroom (tub with showerhead) then there is a large living room and dinning area. There is another bedroom down further by the kitchen which is where we stayed. This was the best room in my opinion. It had its own bathroom as well and shower...

Upstairs there is Bother gigantic room with a bed and then 2 bunkbeds. This room also had its own bathroom. As an extra special suprise all the beds were super comfortable and wwre sleep number beds! And if that wasn't enough, there is a beautiful backyard area complete with a pool and hottub, which we didn't use because of the weather. There is also a back house sort if like a Pool house with another bedroom, bathroom, lounge area, and pool table!

The owner was so helpful and very responsive! I must have asked a million questions and he answered them all right away for me!

I seriously can't believe how much house yoy get for such a good price, and we are so thankful! We woukd absolutely book aga in if ever visiting again.

We truly appreciate you choosing to stay at our home and we would be honored to host your group the next time you are in Dallas...maybe the weather will be a little better next time so you can use the pool and hot tub. Thanks again!

Comfortable Historic Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at this home. 10 of us came to Dallas for a wedding and this home gave us just what we needed. It was centrally located yet the neighborhood was quiet. The home was comfortably furnished, with private space for all as well as good sized central rooms. We wish the weather had been nicer so we could've enjoyed the backyard space.

The owner was responsive to questions and very accommodating of our schedules. A great stay!

Beautiful home great amenities

  • 5 of 5

Great house and location. We had six guys in town for the Falcons Cowboys game and had a great time. The home was set up for accommodating a larger group comfortably. We each had a comfortable bed and enjoyed the back yard and rec house. The hot tub pump was set to accidentally set to "drain" and the gate to the pump was locked so it was not available for use. Other than that mistake it was a fantastic home and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Wedding family stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, lots of room, our family had a very nice time! Loved the decor and backyard with pool. Wish the jaquzi(temperature wise) had been working and for some reason the hot water was not working in the front bedroom and guests had to use the master bath shower. But overall it was a very nice property and a very nice place for family to spend time together during preparation for daughter's wedding. Loved the convenience of Whole Foods being right down the road!

Dallas Museum trip

  • 4 of 5

Location is great for visiting all the downtown sights and Whole Foods a mile away is convenient. Check in was very easy and owner did come to greet us on our first day and gave us privacy the rest of our stay. We were 3 couples with 4 preteens and the game room and pool kept them entertained so we could visit in evenings. We too bought paper supplies and had to refill spare propane tank, which owner was supposed to have ready to go. I suspect the previous renters did not follow posted instructions and owner was not aware. It would help if his phone mailbox was not full, as I called three times with questions and ask where to get propane, but unable to leave message or someone to answer the call. Only other suggestion would be to put a queen bed in apartment sleeping quarters instead of full bed as it makes it a bit cramped for an adult couple to sleep. Would recommend for large groups and pool was a pleasant delight in the July afternoons of Texas. We all enjoyed our stay!
