This home has 6 private sleeping areas, 3 full baths and 2 half baths. It is ONLY 20 MINUTES EAST OF DOWNTOWN DALLAS, although the pictures look like you're in the country! There is a huge patio (with a propane fire pit) overlooking the pool and a park. Many people think the best feature is the 1100 sq ft great room with a pool table, air hockey table, custom poker table, bar, and a 50' TV with surround sound. This room is stocked with numerous games, cards, dice, crayons and puzzles for good times for your group.

Before you move on to check out other houses, let me tell you that this house has so much more to offer than the typical vacation rental. This is FULLY STOCKED as a real home. This means that basic spices, flour and sugar for cooking, condiments, coffee with set ups, etc. are already there! There are TWO fully stocked coffee bars. Because they were VRBO users before they became providers - they KNOW what helps your stay be the best possible. And because they have the true gift of hospitality, they are going to treat you like family. This means that you won't run out of toilet paper, towels, etc. and if you forget your toothbrush - no problem - they have a basket of things people often forget! They enjoy providing the home to you as much as you will enjoy staying there.

**** A two night stay is $1599 - and has to be booked within 30 days of inquiry. ****

There are beautiful surroundings - decorator looks - with park views. Plenty of play area awaits the active group - both inside and outside. This is the best stocked vacation home on the market - according to our guests.

Golfing:

There are many public courses within 15 minutes of the house.

15 Minutes from Firewheel Golf Park – 63 Hole Public Course

“The Bridges Course, Est. 2001 has three different and unique nines: The Masters, The Champions and The Traditions - all three boast bent grass greens. The sculpted fairways are lined with oak and pecan trees.

The Lakes Course is the toughest 18 of all. Stretching 7,134 yards from the back tees, it is a tight, difficult test with carries over ten lakes and plenty of big-face bunkers.

The Old Course topography consists of slow moving streams winding throughout gently rolling terrain. Tree lined fairways, 65 strategically placed bunkers and heavily wooded areas makes this par 71 a challenge for all golfers.”

15 minutes to Buffalo Creek Golf Club – 18 Hole Public Course

“Designed around its natural terrain, Buffalo Creek has a contemporary classic design which belies an austere test. Annually ranked four stars by Golf Digest, the Tom Weiskopf/Jay Morrish design was developed by Charles Perry, who, from 1976 to 1985, was president and CEO of Jack Nicklaus' Golden Bear International. Ranked consistently in the top five courses in the Dallas area and top 10 in Texas, Buffalo Creek offers everything for the novice and the professional. Holes 6 and 16 have been rated as two of the toughest in the state by the Dallas Morning News.

About Stephanie Zajac

We have owned our own home services business since 1984 and have been in the vacation rental business since the Fall of 2013. We love to entertain and love to help others have a good time.

Please see the link to our second rental property located in Canton, TX. A great country getaway for 2-3 couples or a group of friends. This is a very popular place to stay during First Monday Trade Days (Only 10 minutes from Trade Days). www.vrbo.com/586627

This is our second in-town property.

Stephanie Zajac purchased this house in 2014

Why Stephanie Zajac chose Texas

We purchased this home specifically because of our experience in our former vacation rental, which was one of the busiest large (sleeping 12+) rentals in Dallas. When we found this home - we knew it was perfect for families and friends to gather to reunite and hang out together. Because of the separation of the areas, kids can hang out and make noise without bothering the adults in other areas of the home. And most visitors to the home say that they could truly live in the great room! If you love to walk - there's a 1/2 mile walking trail right out the back door.

Great spritual Atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

My group had a nice and enjoyable time in this home. We felt a spiritual atmosphere through out the home. My Pastor and his wife had a great time in this nice spacious home. I would definitely come back and stay again. Stephanie gave us a lot of information about the home and the area prior to coming to the location. Stephanie was very amazing to work with.

Great House for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a large group to stay and gather. We had 10 people in our group and the house was perfect and the game room became the gathering place. We played a little pool and had a fun playing poker as well. Stephanie has done a great job of supplying everything you could possible need to enjoy your stay.

I would highly recommend this property.

Hands down the best place we have ever stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

15 men (philadelphia police officers) were in down for a week long charity baseball tournament for Fallen Dallas Police officers, we travel to other citys for charity games every year and we have stayed in some really nice hotels but this house is hands down the best we have ever stayed. Our experience Started with the owners they were extremely nice and they gave me her numbers if we had any needs, questions or suggestions, they were always available to us.

The House, the pictures dont do this house justice, i could use every positive word in the dictionary to describe this house, but i'll just use a few. Clean, from the master bedroom to the 2 car garage this place was spotless. Organized, everything

Was clearly marked in neat and orderly we had no trouble finding anything, from extra air mattress, to extra blankets and pillows. Stocked, with 15 men in the house we never had a shortage of dishes, towels, hot water, blankets, pillows, or even games to play, Being away from our homes and families for a week we tend to get home sick, well not necessarily in this house (lol) the house is beautifully decorated making us all feel at home, and plenty of stuff to do, 2 large places to watch TV, awesome game room, stocked with all types of board games, the pool and relaxing patio, nice park across the driveway with nice jogging trail. This house is spread out perfectly, thier is rooms we didnt even use.

This house has really set the standard for us when renting a house in the future, but i doubt we will ever find another like it, we will be keeping this house on our list incase we ever return to Texas. Oh did i mention the parking?? Pleanty of it!!

Thankyou to the owners for sharing this wonderful house with us.

The property was lovely, lots of character and very clean. The owners were very organized

  • 5 of 5

This was our company's first time renting a private property for a business trip. Based on our initial experience, we will try it again. Regarding this particular property, we would recommend it in a heartbeat. Not only was there more charm and character than you find in most hotels, the owners were extremely organized and welcoming. They made the renting experience easy. Thank you.

A beautiful home + an amazing home owner=A SMALL SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply amazing and perfect for a family get together. We had 12 of us staying at the home comfortably and had room for at least a 1/2 dozen more. We also had another 10 family members from the area that would come over for cookouts and activities. The man cave is awesome and with activities that could keep you busy for days. For my family, we spent a majority of our time on the beautiful back patio relaxing and catching up. Being that I have rented vacation homes on multiple occasions, I know what to expect as normal from the property owners. But let me tell you, I have never dealt with a property owner so on top of things! Stephanie was simply amazing and went out of her way to make our stay the best and most comfortable it could possibly be for us all. I actually reserved this home a few months ago and every since then she kept a constant line of communication open with me. The most impressive part about that is that any time I reached out to her through email or texts, she replied within minutes. Thank you for going out of your way on more that one occasion to make us feel at home! By the way, we have never rented a home that felt like our own, from your furnishings down to providing use of condiments and everything else there, just an awesome experience. Needless to say we will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Nice, clean, well-stocked, comfortable, and roomy.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The pool was perfect for our large family.

Only one drawback-I was a little stressed that we might not follow all the rules.

Overall, very pleasant stay.
