Clean place perfect for a couple.

  • 4 of 5

The place was cute and very clean. However the shower is the smallest shower I have ever seen. If you are a big person you will not fit in the shower. That is the only reason I give them 4 stars instead of 5. They were very accommodating everything a person needs is in the house.

Owner's Response: Sorry we did not get to meet up! Teresa and her family were perfect guests for our guest apartment and are welcome back anytime. In regards to the shower, I just did want to clarify that it is a standard size corner shower which is a 32"x32" shower. Thats what ours is. It was not special ordered to fit a smaller than usual size space. Our pictures show a corner shower unit so we are not trying to make it look any different than it is. Most people do not use a corner shower in a master bath or even a shared bathroom so most people may not have ever used one before. But to say its the "smallest one you've ever seen" is probably because you haven't used many (most of us haven't had to). The way its phrased makes it sound unusual and its actually the most common size of those types of units.

Perfect Hosts, Perfect Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

I traveled from Alpine TX to Dallas for medical purposes. It was an exhausting trip and, more than anything, I needed ministry for body and soul. I truly received it at this wonderful, beautiful, comfortable, snugly, cozy, relaxing, peaceful little guest house - not to mention the special care by the owners, Christie and Mark. They were wonderful and looked after me. There were so many special aspects of the little house that I hardly know where to begin. First, I want to mention that the location is ideal and convenient for very easy access to areas of Dallas in any direction. The guest house is neat and clean. Everything needed to make one's stay easy, convenient and comfortable is provided. Guests set the heat and a/c to personal comfort levels. The appointments are tasteful, quality and exquisite - but in a warm, relaxed and comfortable way - not in a cold and formal way. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bath is cute and efficient and all is provided there as well. There are really pretty french doors with inner blinds on the back side where guests park under covered parking and enter the house; plus there is another set of french doors on the opposite side of the house by the kitchen, opening onto a lovely patio between the guest house and the main house where guests can enjoy morning coffee. I enjoyed the quality bamboo matchstick type shades on the kitchen windows, which complimented the view of bamboo outside. One other thing that I really like about the guest house is that there are privacy windows (long narrow windows around the tops of some of the walls) and they let in very nice indirect light. In saying that, however, I would offer one suggestion if you want to sleep in. Since there are no shades on those windows, it becomes very bright in the morning, even though it is not direct sunlight coming in. Also, the house is near Mockingbird Lane, which has a good bit of morning rush hour traffic and there is some road noise until about 9:00. Therefore, if you don't need to be up at daylight, I would recommend ear plugs and a sleep mask and you will have the best sleep EVER! The bed was super comfortable for me and the bedding is scrumptious with the softest sheets and best pillows - top quality. Great for rest. Plan some down time just to chill and relax there. And, if at all possible, do try to meet and visit with Mark and Christie. You will be glad you did. They are quite special. All best, Carlon

Hosts that go above and beyond.

  • 5 of 5

I went to Dallas for a 3-day seminar and didn't want to pay the "discounted" rate at the hotel where the event was hosted, so I found Christie and Mark's guest house within walking distance.

Before I even left the comfort of home, I was beset by bad luck. Two hours of technical difficulties at my home city meant the flight was horribly delayed. Ice and snow created more delays at my connection, which I only made by virtue of a mad dash and finally I arrived in Dallas without my luggage.

Christie to the rescue! Not only did she drive me to pick up some essentials at the grocery store, she loaned me a new tee-shirt to sleep in. The spare toiletries in the unit completed my needs for the night. She even dropped my luggage off at the conference the next morning (it was delivered after I left), so I could have a clean change of clothes.

I hope no one suffers the same mishaps, but if you do, and if you happen to stay here, Christie and Mark with take care of you. You will sleep in comfort and wake refreshed with everything you need in this unit and with these hosts. Bravo!

Owner's Response: You are so kind! You kept saying "you've done so much!" But I kept thinking, if this were me, I'd want someone to help me out! Kathleen was a perfect guest! Followed all house rules, left the unit tidy, and was a quiet guest. We would welcome you back ANYTIME, and maybe next time will go smoother for you!
