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 is a fully stocked coffee bar. 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 $1590 - 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.

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.

Awesome place for a large crowd!
Our family of 13 had such an amazing time over New Year's Eve weekend at this home. The game room with the pool table, air hockey table, Craps, Black Jack and Poker table was the highlight of our stay. We all had so much fun. The music room was also fun for the younger crowd. The owner was extremely helpful from the time we booked the home until the day we checked out. Would highly recommend this place!
Great location for family gathering
Housed 11 in three generations for Thanksgiving. Great setup with a wonderful upstairs game room that kept everyone busy. Quiet neighborhood with a park and walking trail nearby. Great place. Thanks!
Labor Day Weekend
Spent 4 days with kids and grandkids. Great House and Great pool.
We thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities offered at this home. It was spacious, comfortable, and offered plenty of entertainment.
This was our first time at this property in Garland, we had a family get-together, for my grandsons 1st birthday, with 8 adults and 4 kids. The house was beautiful and laid out superbly, plenty of room for everyone and not feel crowded or put out.. The Kitchen/breakfast table area is large enough for lots of folks to enjoy whatever is going on in that area with the living room right next to it.. which is a great layout for big groups.. the Décor of the whole house is done very nice and cozy feeling,,, the game room is one of the best features which was used by all, kids to elders.. I think we most enjoyed the outside patio area w/pool & hot tub, large covered area with plenty of chairs, tables, fans & icebox.. the pool is large enough to accommodate plenty of folks and cool off in the Texas summer heat.. the view from the patio area looks over a large greenbelt park area which gives the impression of being on a country property, it is located far enough off the main roads you do not hear any traffic, the occasional local resident that uses the back alleyway was no bother.. Everyone that came and visited during the weekend and our family that stayed the weekend there just loved it and couldn't say enough what a great home it was and a great choice by us taking it for the weekend. We recommend this for anyone looking for a property around the Dallas area and will look into renting it again for our family when the occasion arises again for a family get-together.
Property was absolutely beautiful, very spacious and great decor.
The pool was not clear because of all the rain. Pool guy did his best to have it ready but the water was a little green. But the hot tub was amazing!
