Guestbook comments from the manager

This home is beautiful and it was a lovely time of year to visit. My husband is handicapped so I don't have many choices of vacation homes in Dallas to bring him to because of the accessibility, not many places are so accommodating.

Cramped and Dirty

  • 2 of 5

I was severely disappointed in this rental after all the good reviews that had been posted. The owner worked with me on the number of people in my party and that was appreciated. I told her that we were coming up to the area for my daughter's wedding and we thought that the house (4 BR) would be plenty big for everyone. Before we even arrived I was contacted by them and told that we couldn't check in till 6 because of the cleaning lady and they told me that was what was on my contract. I looked at the contract I was sent and it said 5pm but I didn't make a big deal of it. When I arrived at the home the house was unlocked and the TV's and radio were on. There was dirt, dog food, and broken glass on the floor in the kitchen (my dog found it first) and that was where the disappointment started setting in. We were there for a wedding later in the week and had formal clothes and all of the closets were locked so we had no place to hang our clothes other than the laundry room. The mattress pad on the king size bed was so lumpy and wavy you couldn't get comfortable on it. The house was cluttered with furniture to the point that you could barely move around without bumping into something else. I went outside to the patio area that looks so pretty in the photos and it was a mess as well. There was trash on the deck and in the trash cans and clothing (dirty and stained) left there from some previous guests. The pool was dirty and stained and the BBQ grill was horribly dirty. We had several families there and we were given one key to enter and exit the house with. I called the owner and let her know about my issues and she tried to make things right for us. She had some movable racks brought in that we could hang our clothes on. She had them change the lumpy mattress pad and she left us another key (now 2 for 4 groups of people). The house was so cramped that we actually paid for hotel rooms in town for quests who were going to stay with us just so that they would be more comfortable. The clothes dryer stopped working and I called to let them know that but never heard back from anyone on getting that working again. On the contract it says that the deposit refund process starts 15 days after checkout. I waited patiently and called several times and nobody would call me back. I finally received a check for my deposit at the end of November. If I could post photos here you could see the conditions. I may never use Homeaway again after this experience.

MIGHT-Y FINE

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, updated, decorated nicely. Lots of room at the counter for eating and spreading food out. Loved the areas that the kids could play on and stay contained. Had lots of fun swimming time. We had a great time and would stay here again!

Wonderful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

If you ever want to stay at a "Home Away from Home" this is the place for you. From the moment we booked this Wonderful Home, Suzie, our planning coordinator contacted us and continued giving us all of our trip info from the booking date until the day of arrival. She has the cutest Texas accent. We were warmly greeted by the owner, her excitement and joy in sharing her home was so evident as she toured us around her beautiful home and presented us with a wealth of information regarding local restaurants, groceries and events. From the spectacular kitchen to the swimming pool, this place has "RELAXATION" written all over it! We are 7 adults from Alaska, Oregon and Texas visiting for a family reunion. This was our very first experience in using VRBO and we look forward to renting in the future.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We took a small group of adults and teenagers from our church to six flags dallas and needed a nearby house to house us comfortably, with a nice pool and grounds for the kids to use as well as a decent kitchen to prep meals. This house was perfect. There bedrooms are maximized for people to sleep while still maintaining the comforts of home. The decor made us feel we are in texas and the sunsets over the texas countryside was very pretty. The pool is not huge, but plenty big for us to have a good time in. The kids really enjoyed the pool side basketball. We also had plenty of space to throw the frisbee around in the front yard.

We also had a small hiccup when we locked ourselves out of the house, and the owners were EXTREMELY helpful in helping us get back into the house. I genuinely felt like they cared about the comfort of our stay, as opposed to seeing us as just another rental/dollar sign.

Thank you so much! If we are ever back in the dallas area, i know exactly where we will stay!

Longer stay next time.

  • 5 of 5

We did not realize how PERFECT this place would be when we booked our trip or we would have extended it MUCH longer. The reason we booked this home without looking at almost any other listings was because of how perfect the pictures made it seem. The second we got there we knew we made the right choice. And It did not disappoint at all. Waking up every morning was magical. We spent much of our time just looking around. As night approaches watching the sky light up, is awesome. We were never bored for a minute. On our 2nd night there Serena checked in which honestly warmed our hearts, they just wanted to make sure we were having a good time! Everything we wanted was within 5 miles of the home.. and yet we were still secluded which was amazing. Everything we did was based off the information we were sent right before our arrival. There was so much stuff to do we couldn't do it all so we decided we will just have to visit again..and soon! We wouldnt even bother looking up another home (maybe just the other one from the same owner) because we already got perfection so how can you top that? Everything about our trip was perfect and it all started with the warm welcome from the manager.

My daughter in law added this.

This is the best home I've ever stayed in! It's a beautiful setting. Plenty of space and a gorgeous view at night! It has everything you need. You just bring food and personal items. It was easy to find. The check-in and out process was super simple. Management stayed in contact with me from the moment I booked until even today!

A vacation to remember

  • 5 of 5

We were ready to move in and stay after the first night. Love everything about the house & location. It's peaceful, relaxing, & so nice to return to after sightseeing each day. One of the things my 17 yr. old & I were most looking forward to was the night sky with no city lights. It did not disappoint. We could see the big & little dipper, the milkyway & on our last night - her 1st shooting star! It's a memory I'm sure I will have forever. Thank you so much

Fantastic Pool Party Fun!! In the Heart of All the Major Attractions. Just a few minutes away from DFW Metroplex. In the countryside, yet so close to scores of restaurants, grocery, Golf courses, lakes, shopping, antiquing, and all entertainment. Get away for a romantic weekend for just the two of you, or hold a family get-together, a company picnic or other celebration in a single family home within a security gate entry. Whatever your occasion, consider staying at the Texas Star Ranch. Dubbed as 'some of the most beautiful lands in North Texas, our ranch is just a few minutes away from many parts of the Dallas Fort Worth/Denton metroplex. Fresh air away from the pollution and noises of the city. A sky so clear that you can see and almost touch a thousand stars. Need anything?
