About Darrell Tinglov and Heather Tinglov

As a child growing up loving horses, I dreamed of owning a home in the country with a white fence and a red barn. I have been a Home Inspector in the area now for 20 years. I actually inspected this home for a buyer and fell in love with it during the inspection. I informed the buyer that if he ever sold I would be interested in buying. Well that day came six months later and I jumped at the chance. I have exhaustively updated the property over the years. Heather and I am now ready to share this piece of heaven with you.

Darrell Tinglov and Heather Tinglov purchased this house in 2005

Why Darrell Tinglov and Heather Tinglov chose McKinney

This property offers a country atmosphere without having to wind around country roads to access the property. It's very easy to access from several roads in the area. The property is located minutes north of McKinney. One of the things I have enjoyed the most about the property is being able to see the stars at night. Drive a few minutes south and they disappear.

What makes this house unique

Our home is suitable for a wide range of use, whether your a family with kids looking to get away, a group looking for a retreat, an individual not wanting to stay in a hotel room, or you're looking for a place for a outdoor reunion or wedding. I have recently added a gravel parking area for larger outdoor groups and weddings. Call for details & pricing. You will not be disappointed with your stay!

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you so much for our wonderful stay. The location was perfect. Our grandchildren loved the pool and were in it constantly. Grandma and Grandpa got to enjoy the pool too, and even more so, just watching the grand-kids play. Our children got to stay up after midnight and take a swim under the stars, with their children safe under the care of grandma and grandpa. An Awesome Time For Everyone! We're all looking forward to doing it again next year at about the same time . We will be in touch!

Thank you again for allowing us the use of your home.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was super comfortable, clean and easy to be there! We rented it with the intent to also host a wedding rehearsal dinner of 40 guests and it was perfect. (There is an extra fee for hosting an event there, but well worth it!) Used the barn for the rehearsal and that is a great venue along with the beautiful grounds which are the process of becoming a great place to host a wedding! Darrell was great to work with and offered his help in many ways! Thanks for providing a place for us to be as a family and to be able to enjoy hosting others.

Beautifully appointed

  • 4 of 5

We stayed New Years so weather did not allow for outdoor activities but pool & surrounding area were beautiful. Home is very nicely appointed with western themed decor. Master suite is luxurious and inviting. Easy directions and close enough to Historic McKinney Town Square to drive in and enjoy the shops and restaurants. We provided our own paper goods but kitchen has ample place settings for family meals. I would suggest requesting contract from VRBO before final payment and cancellation date instead of week before stay.

This is by far the most beautiful property we've stayed at, let alone seen. I can't count how many times I asked if we could buy this house haha. It's gorgeous! So much to do!! We swam, sat at the super cute bar, played pool and ping pong, played basketball, had a rehearsal dinner, had a small wedding in the back, had friends stay with us since there's SO many bedrooms.... I love this place!! What's even better tho is Darrel and his wife. Every step of the way they were SO helpful and the nicest people we've ever met. My husband an I moved to Texas in February from California. We knew Texans were kind but seriously this is the nicest family we've met so far. I have nothing but raving reviews for them and their property. We're already talking about renting it for another weekend haha! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!

My visit was fantastic. Most of the visitors that shared the home with me and the friends that came for the Saturday breakfast asked ---- "How did you find this place"? Home Away Home was my reply. The home was relaxing, view was great and the space perfect for our trip to the big ball game. The only issue was that our team didn't win the game.
