The link below will take you to my Gogobot profile. All entries on the list are the best places to go in Dallas either walk-able, or a short drive from the house. This listed is printed in the house for you. All entries have a personal review from us, and provides you location/contact info. We're pretty proud of it. Enjoy!

We absolutely LOVE this home, and are thrilled that we can share it with you. The owners 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 SISU Uptown Resort is a very short, safe walk (5-7 minutes) away, and their pool is open to the public (adults only) and features cocktail service, pool-side dining, and (on the weekends, occasionally) a DJ.

Car: Not Necessary

The Dallas Urban Oasis is located in Uptown's Historic State/Thomas neighborhood, just minutes from Downtown, the Woodall Rodgers Park, and the world-acclaimed Dallas Arts District! State/Thomas is the absolute BEST walkable neighborhood in Dallas, and 2618 Thomas is walking distance to Dallas' best restaurants, night life, shopping, arts, and entertainment.

This newly built, fully furnished and stocked oasis is the perfect home away from home for corporate executives, athletes, celebrities, shoppers, large or small families, or just groups of friends who are coming to Dallas for business or fun!

Walk outside your door and down the street to enjoy some of Uptown's best sports bars, dives, premium restaurants, spas and hotels, or take a short trolley or taxi ride to the Winspear Opera House, the Wiley Theater, One Arts Plaza, Downtown, Northpark Mall (the best shopping in Texas), or to the American Airlines Center for a Mavericks or Stars game or a concert. Also, the Katy Trail, Uptown's incredible running and walking trail, is just minutes away. Use the oasis' bicycles or take a jog to explore Dallas' unique running trail.

For vacationers wanting a discreet, private, two-car garage/first floor entry without the hassle of a hotel desk clerk or check in and hidden hotel costs like overnight parking, this is the place for you! But if you want to jump into the best nightlife that the city has to offer, you'll literally be a few blocks away from Hotel ZaZa, The Ritz Carlton, the Crescent Hotel, the Stoneleigh Hotel and others, plus, you'll be within a short walk, trolley ride, or taxi ride to Uptown's best night clubs.

And this location is truly a shopper's paradise - you're a short cab ride or walk from Stanley Korshak, one of Dallas' finest boutiques. And after an afternoon of shopping, enjoy a long patio lunch/brunch at any of the State/Thomas restaurants just minutes away that were voted 'Best Brunch/Patio Restaurant' in D Magazine.

2618 Thomas is also just steps away from some of the Dallas' most exclusive and encompassing salons and spas. Whether you are seeking full services, a haircut, or blowout, this location is sure to accommodate your needs. And yoga fans will enjoy the yoga studio that is just 3 doors away.

The UT Southwestern Hospital complex, Children's Hospital, Baylor Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Parkland Hospital, and Medical City are all a short drive from the Urban Oasis, and Southern Methodist University and UTD are just up Highway 75. For attorneys in Dallas for depositions, trial prep, or trial, this house is just minutes away from Dallas' state and federal courthouses.

The house is a 6-7 minute drive or cab ride to Dallas' Convention Center in Downtown (public trasportation is also available, but will take you around 30 minutes). The Dallas Urban Oasis is a great get-away for conference-convention vendors/goers, as Downtown Dallas pretty much turns into a ghost town after 5pm each day, whereas Uptown (where the Oasis is located) is Dallas' hotbed for restaurants and nightlife.

But regardless of whether you're in town for business, a concert, a convention, a wedding, a sporting event, a busy week of shopping, to visit family at SMU or at a local hospital, 2618 Thomas Avenue will be there when you're finished. It will be your oasis away from home, a place to wind down, and for family or good friends to gather. Absolutely no pets.
