15 minutes from North Park Mall, one of the best in the U.S. with the famous Neiman Marcus store.

With many personalized touches or unique features such as a handpainted floor, antique claw tub with shower, modern and antique furniture and fixtures, you will not feel you are in a corporate house but a home, your home, sweet home. You can relax on the deck in a large garden with a view of plentiful mature pecan trees and only be five minutes from civilization.

Absoutely Perfect Location!!! This house is ideal for those remodeling their homes, business people, out-of-town nurses, doctors, medical researchers working temporary assignments at Baylor Hospital, Dallas Theological Seminary Students, families wanting to support loved ones at the hospital, patients in need of recovery, students at Baylor Dentistry College. Baylor is just one mile away. This home is also ideal for professional performers in the opera, Broadway shows, theater. It is also perfect for law students doing internships with downtown law firms, vendors who come to work at the annual State Fair of Texas at Fair Park in October.

For tourists who come to Dallas, this is so close to the museums, restaurants, parks, night life and the historic neighborhoods of Dallas.

For those in a housing transition, this place is the perfect home away from home.

This beautifully furnished house offers its peaceful garden and nearby location to White Rock Lake with a sailing, rowing and boating club. The Arboretum (8 minutes) puts on a fantastic tulip showing in March. You can stroll on glorious Swiss Avenue and see the mansions, jog around the lake or bike it and catch a glimpse of wildlife. You are only five minutes from civilization and yet you can relax in your own world.

The house was very clean, eclectic and has a very spacious backyard. The location is minutes from downtown Dallas attractions and also very close to trendy restaurants in the Knox Henderson neighborhood.

Family of 4 LOVED this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four who travelled to Dallas from Italy for our summer vacation. We were very pleasantly surprised to find Ms Vega's house to be like a slice of Europe in the middle of Dallas. We loved the spaciously green backyard, complete with a deck and garden, we ate al fresco every evening and loved the charming atmosphere under the mature trees. The house has an old-world charm- complete with beautiful hardwood floors and an amazing cast-iron claw foot bathtub. We are looking forward to staying here again this summer upon our return.

A warm Texas welcome

  • 5 of 5

We are an English family with two children (aged 4 and 6) visiting family in Dallas over the Christmas period. We were delighted with this house and the huge yard, or as we would say, garden. Laurie was very welcoming and had set-up a Christmas tree so we could feel festive. She also provided DVD's and puzzles for the kids, and was generally helpful in every way. The property was very clean and well maintained. I have already recommended this home to other family and friends visiting Texas. We liked the Dallas Arboretum, especially the children's garden, and the area around White Rock Lake. We also enjoyed the downtown area and Fort Worth stockyards.

Great Family Home

  • 5 of 5

I visited Dallas for a week to see my 13 month old son. Laurie was so great and made sure I had a high chair and a pack'n play ready for him. The house was very clean and made for a great stay. She even offered to go pick up a few things at the grocery store if needed. The house is in a very central location. I have already booked my next trip as it is more than worth it to have the comfort of a home instead of a hotel.

Rental Property Made Our Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week during the Texas State Fair, and it could not have been more perfect! The location was ideal: right next to the fairgrounds, within walking distance of Deep Ellum night life, and just a ten minute drive to the major sights in Downtown Dallas. The house was very charming and well maintained. The owner was fantastic, going out of her way to make sure our stay was pleasant and easy to navigate. I would stay here again if the occasion presented itself.
