The Space

About The Apartment:

Our home was built in 1926 and keeps its old charm in the addition to modern amenities. There are two living quarters in the main house and one in back. The guest apartment is in the main house.

We renovated the guest apartment in April, 2013. The main room combines living and kitchen space. There is a comfortable sofa that opens into a spare double bed. The flatscreen TV has cable from Uverse. You have your own wireless internet access. If you don’t want to walk down the street to any of the cool restaurants, you can prepare your own dinner in the compact kitchen which is equipped with an under-the-counter fridge, microwave/convection oven, stovetop and dishes. Wood floors throughout make it easy for us to keep the apartment clean for you. The bathroom has the original claw-foot tub with a pretty fancy shower system attached. The bed is a new queen sized bed that is so comfortable, you just don’t want to get up!

The house shares cable access and electricity, however the guest apartment has its own private wifi and central heat and air. We could not fit a washer and dryer in the apartment, so we suggest nearby bundle laundry service or laundrymats. We will launder sheets and towels once a week. Parking is on the street in front of the house. We cannot accommodate dogs or cats in the apartment. However we do know of some good doggie hotels in the area.
We work full time, so this is not a hotel or BnB. It is a great place to stay for a short or long visit to Dallas.

The Neighborhood

About The Neighborhood:

You are going to LOVE IT! Your stay with us puts you in the middle of the best Dallas has to offer for sightseeing, getting around and nightlife. The Dallas Art District is 3 miles away and includes the Dallas Museum of Art (free admission), the Nasher Sculpture Garden and other galleries and parks, the Opera House and the new Museum of Nature and Science. The George W Bush presidential library and museum which just opened in May of 2013 is 2.5 miles away. White Rock Lake Park and the Dallas Arboretum are just over 3 miles to the east of us.

The Lower Greenville area is home to lots of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops; all within walking distance. Walk to Trader Joe’s and the Walmart Neighborhood Food Mart. Whole Foods, Sprouts and Greengrocers are less than a mile away.

You can borrow our 2 bikes to get around the neighborhood. It is great sight-seeing.

And now about your neighbors:
We are a great block in the Greenville Ave neighborhood. It is a great mix of friendly people that are always willing to help. We have lived here for over 18 years and love it. The apartment is on our property so it makes it easy for us to help you get settled in.

Getting around

If you don't want to walk or bike around, there is public transportation at the end of our block. Take the bus around, or take the bus to the rail system, just up the street. Downtown, the parks, the arts district, and lots of interesting places are easy to get to from here.

  • Great place to stay in Dallas. Within walking distance to everything (bars, restaurants and convenience stores) and beautiful neighbourhood. Marie and Ed were great hosts more than helpful with every question we asked them. The apartment is a home from home all the comforts you could ask for, Marie even supplied your everyday foods and few snacks. Which was brilliant! Will definitely be heading back.

  • Marie, We had a lovely time at your place. Thanks for the use of your bikes; we rode all around the neighborhood. It was great staying in the area and getting a real feel of life in this neighborhood in Dallas-lots of great restaurants nearby. The apartment was decorated so well and everything was really comfortable. Thanks for the bottle of wine you had ready for us in the refrigerator. We stocked up on lots of good European wine from Trader Joe's before we left--wish we had one in Birmingham. Thanks again. We would love to stay another time soon!

  • This was our first Airbnb booking, and it was superb! We read the reviews for Marie's place and it sounded great, but who knows, right? We stayed there for three nights. The place was just as the other reviews said. It was immaculately clean. Marie furnished it with food supplies and snacks so we didn't HAVE to buy anything at the nearby stores. (Trader Joe's is just a few blocks away! And of course, Marie supplies the Trader Joe's shopping bag!) There are great restaurants within walking distance (including Company Cafe). Oh yeah, forgot a toothbrush or toothpaste or Q-tips or deodorant or first aid supplies, etc., not to worry! Coffee or milk for your coffee, bottle of wine, even some cheerios! All there. Marie is a doll! And although we haven't used Airbnb before, we HAVE stayed in privately owned homes and condominiums in Hawaii many times. Marie's hospitality beats them all!

  • This place is perfect. The pictures cannot do the experience justice. Let me try to explain:

    First, the place is charming. It's larger than I had expected from the pictures, and everything is clean and soft and nicer than anything I own in my apartment.

    Second, Marie could not be nicer. She is a pleasure to chat with and on the occasion I needed her help she came with a smile and a laugh. She has also provided a binder full of recs and suggestions which are helpful. She really was the perfect host.

    Third, the location is exactly where you want to be. It's only a block off of the NICE part of Greenville. Close enough to walk to anything you want or need. And completely safe.

    If you're considering staying at this place, stop and just do it. It will surprise you in the best possible ways.

  • Having been to Dallas numerous times before (visiting family), we were able to enjoy our recent trip so much more this time around thanks to this great find! The apartment was the perfect size for my family of 3. We felt like we were at home away from home, not putting our family out or feeling crammed at someone's place. Separate bedroom from living room was perfect! The location was great too. Just within minutes of a great park (perfect for my 3yr old) and great restaurants as well as groceries. The details were also fantastic like the little snack pack, a few extra toiletries and a binder with great information about the area, even where to get some laundry done. Marie was awesome and accommodating. Thanks Marie for hosting us!

  • Marie's apartment in Lower Greenville was awesome. Everything was just as Marie described. Great little neighborhood with lots of local places within walking distance. Marie met us promptly upon arrival and got us all checked in and our stay was wonderful. The apartment had all the amenities that we needed. Everything was neat, clean and worked perfectly. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, comfortable stay while visiting the Dallas area, I can highly recommend this great little apartment.

  • We just got back from a great visit to Dallas (first time). Marie's place is exactly as you see here--clean, well-organized, and delightfully decorated. The Greenville area is a few miles from downtown and has a pretty livelihood restaurant district. Don't miss Daddy Jack's for seafood if you stay at Marie's.

    I would recommend Marie's place without reservation.

    Thanks Carol. I am glad you had a good time while you were here. And you are right - Daddy Jack's is great!

  • Wow! What a great place. Marie was as delightful as her accomodations. The place was quiet and comfortable and had everything I needed with plenty of space to spread out. The location was the best imaginable. It was tucked in a quiet spot, but you could walk a block or two in either direction and be totally surrounded by the cool eclectic places lower greenville has to offer.

    Thanks for the kind words. We do love our location. It is so easy to get around. We look forward to having you back in Dallas soon. Marie

About
I have traveled around the world and love to meet new people. And yet, I am most happy when I am home with a good book or sitting around with friends. I think that is the reason I like the concept of Airbnb - enjoying that "home" feel even when traveling.
