About Elle

My husband and I, along with our home schooled 14 year-old daughter are traveling full-time to give our daughter a 'hands-on' view of this great country of ours! We decided to open our home as a vacation/business rental to keep it available to us when she returns to public school. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Elle purchased this house in 2005

Incredible host and home!

  • 5 of 5

We came down to Texas with 8 people total for a business conference and could not have been more satisfied with our stay! The pictures don't do this house justice, was larger than what we intended with a big back yard, and everything was very clean and ready to use. Elle, our host, was very helpful if we ever had a question. She was around Colorado enjoying her time and still made it a priority to reply extremely quick. When we make it down to the Dallas area again, this will be our first choice, hands down!

Peaceful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two teenager kids stayed one day shy of a week in this beautiful home. We wanted to find a place where there was plenty of room to relax, cook meals, and not be too far away from Dallas. We found it! The home was perfectly furnished, kitchen was fully usable, and there was a peace in the home that was quite heavenly. My family and I enjoyed it tremendously! Each of my teens had their own room. I loved the sitting area in the Master where we spent time reading and relaxing. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for some or all of the things I've described above. I did not previously know the owners of this house, but they were helpful and responsive when we had questions or requests.

Great first time experience with Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

It was our first time to use a VRBO type service and we were pleasantly surprised. The house was in a very nice neighborhood and it was beautifully decorated. It included a pool table and some outdoor games, good parking, and even a computer printer/scanner. Most of all, I loved how well stocked the kitchen was. This was the perfect solution - no running from one hotel room to another. I would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful, comfortable home in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your home for over 50 days this spring. We loved having a safe, comfortable place to stay after our long days spent doing ministry in the Mesquite/Garland area. The kid's liked their bedrooms. The two full bathrooms was more than we have at home. Also, the master bed is truly comfy! The only thing I would recommend is putting in a different bed in the black/white room (girl's room). It sunk in the middle and was a little uncomfortable for the girls who shared it. We loved having the option of pool or ping pong, and my 16 year old was thrilled with a basketball hoop at the house. We used the grill and the back patio quite a bit before it got too hot. The air conditioning was difficult to control throughout the home. Some parts were very cold and some too warm. If possible, I would suggest a different kitchen counter top. Also, the master tub/shower needs some work. The plumbing is very loose, and it seemed as though it might have been leaking. The roughness gave us some problems as we tried to work in it.

Location wise: Super close to downtown Dallas, which was great for our family for a quick outing or two.

Overall, a very enjoyable stay that felt like home.

Loved this property!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town to attend the State Fair. And it turned into a reunion weekend for our family. The home is very roomy and had plenty of space to entertain. The pool table and back yard made our weekend so great! The kitchen is well stocked and there are lots of toys and things to keep kids busy! We completely enjoyed our stay and recommend this property highly!
