Great stay in downtown Frisco

  • 5 of 5

I've never been in Frisco...maybe driven through it. I had no idea what a nice place downtown Frisco is, and this charming little house is just a couple of blocks off of main street. My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights for Edgefest, which took place at the Toyota Stadium, just a 20 minute walk away. The accommodations couldn't have been better. Andrea's communication was great, the house was comfortable and well equipped, and we couldn't have been happier. Thanks for a great time.

Beautiful Home - Perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5

We needed a house to stay in for the week of Thanksgiving until our new home was ready for move-in. Andrea was very accommodation to the 4 of us, as well as responsive both prior and during our stay.

The home itself is beautiful - historical and quirky room to room, but has all the modern amenities needed to make a stay easy. Full kitchen, washer/dryer, TV, wifi, lots of seating room, and a gorgeous backyard. It has fantastic accessibility to the Frisco area. Highly recommended!

If I could only give 10 stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me give you the lowdown on our stay....

It was PERFECT! First of all Mrs. Andrea accommodated us at the last minute at 10:00 pm after our original plans fell through. I inquired about her home & told her we were in a bind & my mom & friend (who arrived a day ahead of us) needed somewhere to stay that night, Andrea called me immediately & helped me to make arrangements to stay in her home that night.

My mom called to tell me how beautiful the home was & how much we’d love it once my boyfriend, daughter, & I made it the following day, & she was 1000% correct. This home is so adorable, classic, & totally beautiful. This cottage is true to the 1905 spirit of when it was built, but Andrea has added some modern affects that allow you to vacation in the best of both worlds. The decor & colors everything was so well thought-out & unbelievably relaxing.

Andrea thought of EVERYTHING that a family would need in a vacation home; several coffee makers, blenders, plates, bowls, cups, washer & dryer with the washing powder, plenty of blankets & towels, whatever you needed was certainly there. Oh & let me mention that this place was CLEAN....there is nothing I despise more than staying in a hotel or renting a place & you see other people’s hair in random places (which happens, but it's gross) BUT NOT HERE! Her cleaning lady is Ashley so big props to Ashley...I know her name b/c since we rented at the last minute, Ashley was actually there cleaning the house when my mom arrived so they met her & she was very pleasant to them.

Just to speak to the environment a little; there were 5 of us total & all of us were completely comfortable. I have an 11 year old daughter who is always bored, but she begged me to stay when it was time to leave after 2 days. So what activities did we do while we were there...NONE!!! We planned to do SO many things while we were there but I swear that we were so comfortable in the house that we only went to Walmart twice, Kroger, Smoothie King, & the gym lol, that is how comfortable this house was, & we are adventurous people but we all enjoyed hanging out in the house with each other which doesn't happen often when we are home in Houston.

My boyfriend & I spent the last night in the house thinking about how many times a year we will set aside to comeback to this beautiful home b/c we felt so good being there. We have said that when we come back we will explore more of this beautiful town b/c there is so much to see & do there.
