  • We loved staying at Joan's place. Both Joan & Ralph were extremely friendly & helpful. The location was awesome. GREAT neighborhood!

    April 2014
  • The apartment was charming as advertised and it was very clean with hardwood floors. The pillow top queen-size bed was very comfortable and the shower worked great. Joan and Mike were really great hosts and were there to help you whenever needed. We enjoyed them so much we went out to dinner with them and really enjoyed their company…great people. If you are looking for a place to stay in Dallas, this is a good choice and it has easy freeway access.

  • Very nice place! Cozy and centrally located, with everything we wanted to do just a short trip away. Though we only interacted briefly via the phone, Joan was a kind and gracious host. A nice touch were the menus that were provided for nearby restaurants -- and there are some great ones nearby! Would heartily recommend staying with Joan.

  • What a nice place. Joan and her husband were great hosts. The place was comfortable and had everything I needed with enough space to spread out. The apartment is in a nice and save area, close to restaurants, shops and bars.

    All in all a nice place to stay and I would recommend it!

  • The apartment is lovely as are Joan and her husband Ralph. You can walk to everything in this neighborhood - restaurants, shops, spa, yoga and movie theatre. This was our first airbnb experience and we will use airbnb again! I would also stay here again the next time I am in Dallas.

  • Julie and I had a great stay in Joan and Ralph's charming apartment. The location is central to the Dallas area making it a perfect place to stay while staying in Dallas. I was able to get my runs in on the nearby Katy Trail and even met a friend for lunch at Company Cafe located right off the trail. Northpark Mall, Klyde Warren Park, the Perot Museum and Preston Center are all minutes away. We plan to stay here on our next visit to Dallas. Thank you Joan and Ralph! Hopefully we'll get to meet you next time.

  • Terrific location. The place was exactly as advertised and made for a very comfortable and convenient stay.

  • My husband and I stayed in this adorable apartment for 4 nights. We truly enjoyed our stay. Ralph and Joan are the best host ever. We didn't get to meet them in person because they were away visiting family. However, they took care of everything and called several times to check on us. I also got to just chit chat with both of them and I really enjoyed that. They are both so kind.

    The apartment was in the perfect location!! We rented a car and parking was available right beside the apartment. We got everywhere in Dallas in a matter of a minutes. The apartment was super clean,cozy, and has everything you need. There are even great restaurants and shops within walking distance. We were able to cook some simple meals using the hot plate. I definitely recommend staying here if you are ever in Dallas.

    Thanks Ralph and Joan for everything. You both were amazingly kind people. Brian and I are already missing everything about Dallas!
