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.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing extended weekend at this house! Our group was four moms and seven girls here for a cheerleading competition and no one had to fight for bathroom space to get ready! There was plenty of hang out space in the main house and in the pool house. The girls LIVED in the hot tub which we had a bit of a tricky time getting warm when we first arrived. The owner was SO prompt in all of his responses to my messages about the hot tub though. Had it all set up when we can back from dinner! Beds were comfortable and all the girls stayed in the loft area with the trundle and the air mattress. It was a ten minute drive to the convention center so we were never late getting the girls to competition. All in all, it was a great trip and so much better than staying at a hotel. Would definitely stay here again!

It's A Wonderful Life Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have wished for a better setting for our Christmas this year. The home was just that, "a home". The accommodations could not have been better for our needs. We had plenty of room for our familly of 7. The kitchen was well equipped to cook my holiday prime rib and great breakfasts. The beds were quite comfortable. The a/c system was great especially for an older home. Doug, the owner went above and beyond making our stay special. The Christmas tree and lights added a special touch to all our pictures. We will always remember this Wonderful Life Christmas in Dallas at this special Home. I would highly recommend this home for any stay in Dallas. Plenty of room and amenities.

Comfortable and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I came down for a wedding and this house was perfect. Slept 8 comfortably and all the amenities and appliances worked just fine. It was everything we could ask for and more for a vacation home.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than what we expected. We enjoyed the house immensely!! The house was well worth the money we paid to stay here. It had everything that we needed/wanted! We've stayed in many vacation rentals and we yet to rent a house that had bathrooms in all the bedrooms. This was especially nice when you have a group of people and don't have to take turns to get ready for the day.

All the beds were very comfortable! Music that plays inside the house and in the yard was a welcomed feature. The pool house was a lot more than we expected as well. With a Pool Table, TV, kitchen and an upstairs bedroom.

The entire house was a joy to stay at and would definitely stay there again, if available, when visiting Dallas.

A 1000's thanks to the owner for being so accommodating to us!!!!
