Cozy and functional, pullout couches not tempurpedic quality

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 7 stayed for 4 nights pretty comfortably. The beds were very comfortable. However the pull out couches were definitely not tempurpedic quality as advertised. They were very thin to where you could feel the springs. The large dining table was very nice to have our group eat together. Having 3 bathrooms was awesome with a big group. The master bathroom tub was chipping and could use some attention. Somewhat awkward shower experience in master bath and tall tub made it difficult to step in and out of, but we made it work. There were no outlets in master bathroom either but there were a few in the bedroom. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and was a quick drive to downtown. There were several nice shops and restaurants nearby. We would stay there again but maybe with only 6 people unless they upgraded the pull out couch mattresses.

Only one tiny thing to suggest: find a way to have a shelves accessible in the master bath claw foot tub. Great shower head, but an awkward bathing experience.

Charming bungalow in a lovely area.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for us. We were taking our son to college in Dallas and needed a chance to unwind and be near to the college but not hover. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the restaurants and shops in the renovated Bishop Arts District. We took a lovely walk down to Oddfellows Cafe, where we had bountiful choices for brunch and coffee every morning. Rocio was very gracious helping me figure out the tv and cable. It was a simple fix and she had us up and watching Netflix in no time. We found the location was excellent and just minutes away from wherever we wanted to go. Friendly neighborhood. Would love to stay here again.
