*****Great Location*****

The historic Bishop Arts District is just minutes from Downtown, Uptown, the Uptown Arts District, American Airlines Center, West Village, Methodist Hospital, Cowboys and Rangers Stadiums, and countless restaurants, spas, and nightlife!

Located near major highways I-30, I-35, I-45, Dallas Tollway.

As of 4/2013, this is the only luxury rental (or hotel, for that matter) south of I-30 and within walking distance of the Bishop Arts District, Kessler Theater, and Methodist Hospital.

808 N. Bishop Avenue offers 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and secure, gated parking for 6 cars. It luxuriously accommodates 6-10 guests, and can comfortably sleep up to 14 guests with pull-out sleeper sofa. The master bedroom upstairs has its own premium bath with dual sinks, oversized walk in closet, glass shower and television. The two additional upstairs bedrooms share a premium bath. The two bedrooms downstairs share a premium bath as well and have their own living room area (perfect for kids!), with television, and office complete with dual work spaces. The downstairs also provides a service kitchen with range, sink, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator.

All furnishings are new with emphasis on high quality mattresses, bedding, and amenities.

There is a no-charge, full capacity, front loader washer and dryer available for your use.

Owners have stocked the house with everything you will need for a long term stay, including toiletries, a fully furnished kitchen with serving pieces for eight and cooking materials, books, and movies. The house also has cable and high speed internet.

***ABSOLUTELY NO PETS*** (We love pets, but accidents happen, and many people have allergies to different types of animals. If a pet is found present the owners will request that you vacate immediatedly, and your entire deposit will be forefitted).

We love this home and neighborhood, and we're thrilled that we can share it with you. We want you to have the absolute best stay here in Dallas and are a quick call away and will be happy to act as your own private concierge while you're here in Dallas!

The house does not have a pool, but is a short drive away (5 minutes) from the Belmont Hotel, which offers day-passes as well as cocktail and food service at its pool.

The home is also a short drive (less than 5 minutes) to the Stevens Park Estates Municiple Golf Course. Stevens Park has just undergone a multi-million dollar renovation, and is known for its sweeping views of the Downtown Dallas Skyline.

This home is located in the historic Bishop Arts District neighborhood just minutes from downtown, the Convention Center, and Methodist Hospital! The Bishop Arts District is known for being one of two truly walkable neighborhoods in Dallas; it is walking distance to some of Dallas' top dining destinations, including Lucia, Hattie's, Eno's, and Driftwood! Nightlife also abounds in the Bishop Arts area, as does shopping, arts, and live entertainment.

Beautiful restaurants for dinner. Most also serve brunch, and lunch. Reservations recommended.

This newly renovated, fully furnished and stocked oasis is the perfect home away from home for corporate executives, athletes, celebrities, theater-goers, shoppers, large or small families, or groups of friends who are coming to Dallas for business or fun! Walk outside your door and down the street to enjoy some of Dallas's best dive restaurants and bars, eclectic coffee shops and artisans, premium restaurants, spas, and nightlife... or take a short cab or bus ride to the Winspear Opera House, the Wiley Theater, One Arts Plaza, Downtown, the Convention Center, North park Mall (the best shopping in Texas), or to the American Airlines Center for a Mavericks or Stars game or a concert!

The calendar is updated daily. Please check it to confirm that the dates you're seeking are available. We take the home off the market once payment is received.

Cancellation Policy: 100% refund if cancelled 30 days prior to arrival. Refunds are processed within 7-10 business days.

Bishop Arts Hpuse

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in Dallas, had a event to attend and enjoyed your house along with our family and friends. Walked to the shops and bars and enjoyed drinks on the porch. No complaints. ( you may need to change a few light bulbs and stock up on toilet paper) Highly recommend it, enjoyed the complementary wine and appreciated having coffee there for us.

Wonderful property and owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both houses on Bishop Ave. for our wedding weekend. We got married at Kessler Park United Methodist with the reception in downtown Dallas and the locations of the houses couldn't have been better for both venues.

The bridesmaids got ready at one house (where my grandparents stayed) and the groomsmen got ready at the other house (where my out of town friends stayed). Both houses were absolutely perfect for what we needed, and the owners could not have been more accommodating and easy to work with! They even gave us a bottle of champagne and a personal card upon our arrival. Rocio is the best!

Both houses have been updated with the best amenities and are obviously kept in very good condition. They are even better than the pictures!

I would highly recommend staying at any of their houses (they also have one in uptown). Thanks for making my wedding weekend go off without a hitch! :)

Great Property!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as pictured, and was extremely spacious! My group had a wonderful stay here, and everything went more than smoothly. The house was extremely clean and organized when we arrived, and that is very appreciated! My same group is thinking of doing something similar again and renting a house to relax in for a couple of days, and if we choose to do it in Dallas, then we will definitely be coming back here!

Amazing!!! Fabulous! Will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing! The online photos were extremely accurate. The house was super clean and fully stocked with all the necessary essentials (including full-size bottles of shampoos, body wash etc, in each bathroom!). The walk to the Bishop Arts District was 4-5 minutes and we used Uber to get downtown (~7 minutes). We lucked out with February weather, and spent a lot of time on the various porches. Rocio was extremely accommodating and even left us an adorable gift for my niece's 1st birthday. We had 9 adults and 4 kids...and there was plenty of room to find a little solitude away from everyone! If we decide to return to Dallas for another family gathering, we will DEFINITELY stay here again!

Very accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

Great response to inquiries & follow up and a quick response to email questions on the day of check-in, as far as customer service goes. Great location and home! Love the Bishop Arts District and all its great restaurants, bars & quaint shops. The house layout is very flexible as far as a separate kitchen on each floor. Only con would be the loud noise while traversing the stairs but that can't be helped. Also, good patio spaces for conversing & entertaining. Clean linens in the bedrooms, furniture & tidy restrooms. Overall, would highly recommend!

Great house & location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 7 other girls for my sister's bachelorette party. We all had plenty of bathrooms & beds. The upstairs living room is so big! I swear that couch could seat 20...

The house has charming historic-home features like the flooring and frames, but the kitchen is fully updated. We loved it and would definitely stay here again. Oh, and literally a five minute walk to Bishop Arts, so no one had to worry about driving. We easily fit five cars inside the gates driveway too. Awesome experience- thank you!

Car: recommended

The Bishop Arts District is a stones throw away. Dallas Convention Center and Downtown Dallas are a short 7 min drive or 15 min bike ride away through the neighborhood and over a safe bridge (avoiding the interstate exchange entirely). Bishop Arts is also less than 10 minutes away from Uptown and from some of the best shopping and museums in Dallas.
