About Joni & Lee Norton

My husband Lee and I (Joni) have enjoyed many great family holidays staying in Vacation Rentals with our children & their families. So, it seemed a natural fit when we had the opportunity to buy a house in our own wonderful neighborhood. Great guest house for when we have family and friends in town and great to share with vacationers visiting the area. My husband grew up in the house we live in, so he's very familiar with Arlington. I grew up in a north Fort Worth neighborhood. We both have a tremendous love for the area. This is a quiet neighborhood in the midst of the University of Texas at Arlington. The homes were built in the early 50's and there are gorgeous Oak trees throughout.

Joni & Lee Norton purchased this house in 2015

Why Joni & Lee Norton chose South Arlington

We are minutes from the revitalized downtown Arlington area with lots of new restaurants and some old established haunts. J. Gilligan's is a local favorite & offers shuttles to Cowboy games and events at AT&T Stadium. The Levitt Pavilion hosts concerts downtown on the lawn during June and September. We are steps from UTA campus and a short drive to Arlington's Entertainment district with AT&T Stadium, Globe Life Park & the Texas Rangers, Six Flags over Texas and Hurricane Harbor.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy all that Arlington has to offer and then retreat to our little circle of quiet to relax from the days activities. We are central to the entire Dallas/Fort Worth area. Venture out and explore!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Saying this house if very nice would be an understatement. The house was absolutely spotless when we arrived. Everything in the kitchen is very well organized and even included several helpful notes telling you where everything could be located. Our group was 6 guys in town for the Cowboys game (Sept. 2017), and the house fit our every need. The house's location is perfect for anyone going to AT&T or Rangers Stadium. The back yard was one of our favorite parts. It is huge! It's pretty much completely flat, and fenced in with a lot of tree coverage, so it is very private. The patio space has a nice table and chairs, and a very nice and clean gas grill, which we used for lunch one of the days we were there. We've been coming to Arlington for the past 8 years for Cowboys games, and we always stay in a hotel, but from now on we will returning to Light and Bright.

Wonderful, comfortable, clean and relaxing home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, excellently appointed and furnished house on a quiet university street. We fixed all our meals in the roomy kitchen and shared lots of time in the comfy leather living room furniture. Owner is great at getting back with answers to questions in a timely manner and was generally very helpful. We loved staying in this home! Will definitely return!!

The home is super cute, cozy, & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend (6 of us) to enjoy the Packers vs Cowboys game. Location was great as we were able to do multiple activities...AT&T Stadium tour, bar hop around Arlington, downtown Dallas excursions, visit the State Fair, & ultimately enjoy the football game! The house was also super nice that we even stayed in for 2 nights to enjoy the comforts of "home." I highly recommend staying here!
