This newly-remodeled home, located in upscale North McAllen, provides a full kitchen, washer & dyer, cable TV and wireless internet. Two of the bedrooms have queen-size beds. A third bedroom has a day bed and trundle bed (both twin size mattresses). And for those extra guests, the sleeper sofa in the living room folds out into a queen-size bed. All towels, bedding and kitchen items are included. Housekeeping is provided prior to move-in, and extra housekeeping services can be arranged during your stay. In addition to convenient street parking, we have an attached two-car garage. (The owner keeps a car on one side of the garage, but there is room for one more vehicle.) A short two blocks away is beautiful Bill Schupp Park, and fine dining and shopping are within easy walking distance. We get frequent return guests, so book early!

About Steven D. Harris
The owner and his wife use this home for their second residence and lease it out to discriminating guests when they are not there.
Steven D. Harris purchased this Townhome in 2013
Why Steven D. Harris chose McAllen
This property reflects the careful and exquisite touch of one of the Rio Grande Valley's top interior decorators. Every piece of furniture, fixture, wall and floor treatments and even colors of trim paint complement each other. Some guests have described our home as equivalent to a five-star resort. McAllen itself is a unique bicultural city, but due to the many U.S. and foreign assembly plants (maquiladoras) a few miles across the border in Reynosa, Mexico, it also caters to globally-based firms. The city has literally every kind of restaurant you can imagine. Our home is on a safe, quiet residential street in upscale North McAllen, close to excellent shopping and fine dining. And you're within easy driving distance of day trips to Mexico, South Padre Island, and other experiences to make your stay exciting and comfortable.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our guests love this place because it has all the comforts of home, and entire families can stay here, unlike hotels where family is usually split up between different rooms. We continue to upgrade the property. We have remodeled virtually the entire house, including both bathrooms that now have new fixtures and granite countertops. We also have remodeled the kitchen. In addition to new countertops and cabinets, we created of a bistro/breakfast bar area so family and friends can gather in the kitchen for casual dining and relaxation. If dining in is not your thing, we are literally a few minutes walk away from a great coffee shop, plus restaurants of every kind on 10th Street. And even though we are right in the heart of the best McAllen has to offer, we live on a quiet residential street that ends in a cul-de-sac, so your relaxation time won't be disturbed. If you're like us, you'll find it hard to leave!

Went out there for a wedding and stayed for Thanksgiving. It was very clean and very spacious. I more than enjoyed my stay. I loved it and would definitely return.
Thank you for your feedback. We are happy you had a good visit, and hope to see you on your next visit to McAllen.
We had a great stay at this property in McAllen from July 5th-13th, 2018
Beautiful home, so warming and spacious, great Kitchen and had everything we needed. We are from Florida and visit our relatives in Texas every summer while on vacation. It was six of us, all family 1 brother and his wife and 4 sisters. We really enjoy our stay at your beautiful home. This was our first time renting on Home Away from Home website and I am so glad we did. My only suggestion would be to have a ceiling fan in the second bedroom for air circulation.
Thank you so much for a great stay at your beautiful home. Looking forward for next year vacation at this home if possible.
Gracie, and Rosa Martinez
Thanks for your feedback, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your suggestion concerning an additional ceiling fan. As with all the comments we receive from our guests, we appreciate yours and are constantly seeking to improve the guest experience.
We had a great stay in this property. Minor issue with TV but was taken care off by property representative quick and efficient. This place had everything you could need it was just like staying at our own home. We look forward to utilizing this place again in the future and urge other people to do the same.
Great clean home for a family with a lot of extras...
We have stayed at a lot of different VRBO type of homes all were ok but none of them were like this one this home is just what every home away from home should be. It had all the essentials and a whole lot more, Example I needed tape and blender things you would like to have when away from home and this home had it all. The owner was so nice and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. We ran into trouble and at the last day due to the weather, and the owner went above and beyond what he needed to do to make sure we were all taken care of due to the weather situations. They were so accommodating and worked with us through out it all. If you want a true meaning of home away from home this home is it.
Thank you so much for your feedback. It really helps future guests to get an unbiased and fair view of our home.
We also want to thank you for your flexibility in dealing with the incredible weather issues. While there was no damage to the home or threat to your safety, the inability to freely move about the city due to flooding was a challenge. You understood the situation and cooperated with us in finding a solution that worked for everyone.
Clean, comfortable house meet all our needs
Conveniently located in North McAllen, this house had plenty of towels, sheets, and essentials for what we needed. No complaints.
Thank you for your review and comments. Feedback from prior guests helps future visitors get familiar with the property. We're glad you had a good stay and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
Made us feel at ease during our stay
Our family all had a great time during our month-plus stay at the end of summer. Two thumbs up. Nice quiet location with easy access to the city. The park was less than a five minute walk and a very nice bonus. Very practical layout of the home with large master shower. Parking was available in the garage and off street. We felt very safe and relaxed during our stay.
Be sure to take in a mariachi mass at the San Juan Basilica. Other unique opportunities include getting custom-made boots in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico, followed by lunch at Arturo's, where the second margarita is free. Or go to South Padre Island for shelling, swimming, fishing or sand castle building lessons. See tropical birds on their migratory path at Quinta Mazatlan. In the winter season, join Winter Texans in enjoying musical performances by entertainers that come south from Branson to take in the warm dry winter months. The musical scene also includes some very talented local musicians with a variety of styles from mariachi to bolero.
