We're located on a street two houses off Magnolia Avenue. Just steps from eclectic eateries and one-of-a-kind bars. A few favorites include: Spiral Diner (Vegan Restaurant); Ellerbe’s Fine Foods (Excellent Farm-to-table meals), The 'Usual' (place to try 'classic cocktails' in an upscale environment,) Zio Carlos (our newest Gastro pub brewing some of FW finest and serving some amazing pizza. BREWED (referred to as 'The Locals living room') serves up great coffee, amazing beers on tap from all over the world and excellent food. Lilly's Bistro, Sunjiko Station Sushi, Hot Damn Tamale, the list goes on and on for fun things to do on Magnolia and it’s all walking distance from the house. We're very excited that Cane Rosso pizzeria (authentic Naples style pizza) is opening in November '13! Rahr Brewery is only a 1/2 mile from the house.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • LOVED our stay at the Magnolia house. It's so close to everything from coffee shops, cafes, fine dining, bars and even a nice shopping center just a couple of miles up the street. I took my mom and my sister to Fort Worth for a girl's weekend trip and we had an amazing time. Andy was a great host and answered any questions I had. We had a great time our first night just hanging out at the house in the backyard having some drinks and catching up with each other under the globe lights!

  • THIS IS WHAT airbnb IS ABOUT! Great space. Terrific Host. Outstanding experience. Andy was an excellent communicator/host. We arrived to fresh flowers, a personalized note and a pristine loft with off street parking and TONS of CHARM. The beds were comfy and the towels were cloud-like. We were less than a 10 minute drive to the Fort Worth Convention Center and a 4 minute walk to the best restaurant in FW along the Magnolia Avenue strip. Andy also gets KUDOS for best TV instructions (laminated instructions with photos of clickers to aid visual learners like me!) of ANY airbnb in which I have stayed. Andy also provided super fast wireless internet and an iPad! - AMAZING. We used the kitchen with all the high-end appliances after a visit to Market Cafe - a short drive west of flat. I highly recommend this space and host.

  • We loved the house. Everything was set up just how Andy described. Plenty of hot water, towels, toiletries, coffee, etc. It is in walking distance of everything you'll need for a short or extended stay. There was even an iPad there for guests.

    March 2014
  • It was a perfect stay! The house was just as pictured, very spacious, and wonderful in every way. Andy was a great host and the communication was smooth. I would definitely stay here again, and I would recommend it to anyone. Very pleased.

  • The house is great, good location and nicely decorated. Andy has been very helpful before our arrival and during the stay.

  • Andy's place was great! Perfectly clean and more spacious than it appears in the photos. Comfortable for six adults. The location is perfect for walking to dinner on Magnolia Avenue. Andy provided a notebook with restaurant menus which helped us decide where to eat, and a bottle of wine for a nice happy hour. Highly recommend this place for anyone planning a trip to Fort Worth.

  • FIRST TIME AIRBNB, I was skeptical and now I will NEVER stay in a HOTEL again.

    My wife and I recently celebrated our 3 year anniversary (with at least 63 more to come) and wanted to get away for the night. I priced out different hotels in the Fort Worth area and though we live in Fort Worth we needed a night away. I wasn't particularly impressed with previous stays in high priced downtown hotels so we came to AirBNB.

    When I searched Fort Worth the Magnolia Ave Getaway was one of the first to popup and it fit all of our needs. Especially since we already had dinner reservations around the corner (no need for a cab) and all of the places we love to hang at are right there too.

    When I spotted this place I had no idea HOW GREAT IT WOULD ACTUALLY BE. Andy responded almost immediately to confirm reservation. We were given instructions for checkin and had no problems accessing the house. We walked in and were taken aback by all of the charm. This little getaway has so much character. And Andy left us a little treat. My wife took a soak in the claw foot tub, an afternoon nap in the cozy bed. We took a deep breath and just relaxed. The home made it easy. We readied for dinner and WALKED just around the corner to one of the hottest restaurants in town. Went for a drink. And WALKED home. We climbed in bed and soared off into a dream world.

    I awoke the next morning to fresh coffee that Andy had left and a beautiful sunrise. We shared breakfast at the little table to some music on the sound system and smiled.

    THIS PLACE WAS SO PERFECT. Such an incredible getaway for locals and out-of-towners alike.

  • Andy is a spectacular host and we highly recommend this Magnolia Avenue Getaway. The house is comfortable and stylish and in a nice historic neighborhood. The two-bedrooms worked perfectly for two couples. Andy had a well-stocked refrigerator, whole bean coffee for our morning cup, a bottle of wine to welcome us -- really above and beyond our expectations. And a big plus for us is the walkability of the neighborhood. Magnolia Avenue is just a block away and it was fun to walk to dinner and a late-night treat. One more thing: Andy has a great notebook with good local places that is really helpful for visitors.

Work and Travel Abroad
I own a small youth cultural exchange company in Fort Worth, TX called 'Work and Travel Abroad' in which I send students and young adults to Australia and New Zealand to work and travel. I enjoy most spending time with my family. Aside from that, travel-travel-travel, work some more then travel some more. Real Estate is one of my passions as well as I love sailing, traveling by boat, eating good food and having good conversation with friends. Something most people don't know about me... I love receiving old school post cards in the mail.
