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

Why Elle chose Texas

Positioned in a well-established, peaceful neighborhood near three major Dallas highways, this home enables you to access all the Dallas area activities quickly and easily. We are home to the historic Mesquite Rodeo and Convention Center and the Forney Antique Stores. We are also within a short drive to Canton Trade Days and Arlington, TX, which features Cowboys Stadium, Six Flags over Texas, The Ballpark at Arlington, water parks, museums, multiple lakes, and other tourist attractions. Ample parking is available in the home's two-car garage and back driveway. The back yard is huge with horse shoes, fire pit, and ping pong table.

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!

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!

Homey place

Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely home. Very spacious and our small dogs really loved running around and exploring in the backyard. The house was clean and the neighborhood was quiet. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderfully suited for a relaxing ladies weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

We cousins had a reunion and thoroughly enjoyed the warm and inviting decor, the well-stocked kitchen, and the pleasing spaciousness of the house. Best features of the house: privacy of the driveway parking, beautiful tile work in the floors and gracious extra touches in the wall pictures and furniture, and comfortable feeling the house gives us as we sit talking in the living room. Also, the ease of working with the owners. We LOVED this place, and offer the following suggestions only because the owner, LaVonda, is so gracious and seems to want feedback.

Two slight problems happened, one with the bed and one with the AC. The master bed is still a bit too high although taking out the springs was an excellent idea, as was providing a stepping stool. Unfortunately, my 78 year old cousin offered me the stool since she is 5'7" and I am 5"0" but then when she got out of bed to go to the bathroom, she fell right down and ended up with quite a giant black bruise on her hip the next day. The next night, I gave her the stool and found if I took kind of a running leap, I could jump up okay. Suggestions...maybe a nice foam rug right beside the bed so when we fall out, we could hit a softer surface than tile? Or maybe another stepping stool? Or maybe tell old people not to rent from you? (*grin.)

The air conditioner had just been worked on earlier, I think, and I am not totally certain the thermostat was reading correctly as it seemed to be either too cold or way too hot...and gave odd readings (as in "85 degrees" when it was really in the low 70's). That problem was solved by us just moving the control to manual. (Since it is the same thermostat two of us used in our own homes, we had no trouble at all.)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. A rug beside the bed is being added. We had just replaced the A/C unit, which is so necessary in Texas! We have since had the company do a service call to check its functionality and a simple adjustment of the vents took care of the problem! Thank you for staying with us! Come back sometime!
