Interaction with Guests
Often times I don't get the opportunity to meet the guest face to face or even talk to them on the phone although I'm happy too. I let guests enjoy their stay and don't want to bother them. I always leave my cell number in the welcome letter and tell them don't hesitate to call should they need anything or have any special request.
The house is located in the National Historic District of Fairmount. A community driven neighborhood with community gardens, parks, a library, and community theater.
Fort Worth Bike Share-rent a bike by the hour. Bus that picks up one block from the house and a train that will take you directly to Dallas.
Other Things to Note
You can tell from the reviews that the house gets great remarks but people often leave out the backyard. It is really nicely landscaped with lots of cactus, agaves, hanging lights with a seating area. It makes for a great place to relax with a glass of wine when weather permits.
A two night minimum stay is required for weekends. (Friday & Saturday)

Great place, great location and great host! Andy called to confirm arrival and make sure we had everything we needed, house was amazing and had everything we needed. Highly recommend this property.
I cannot say enough nice things about this place and Andy.
I contacted Andy several months ago as a girl from Fort Worth, living in Austin, and looking for the perfect place to host my bridal shower for me and a few ladies. Andy was so generous and helpful throughout the entire process, getting in contact with my MOH about the location, parking, and where to place a few tables. This is the most ADORABLE house in the neighborhood and was the perfect setting for my memorable weekend. My mother and I got to stay overnight and enjoy all the wonderful features. There was even a detailed note with instructions and a fresh vase of flowers waiting when we arrived.
We were also lucky enough to enjoy the neighborhood and walk to the most adorable brunch spots and bars to celebrate with a few drinks after. This is the perfect getaway spot in Fort Worth, hands down. My only complaint is that we didn't stay longer!
Thank you again for letting us use the space for one of the best weekends of my entire life! We all had the most amazing time. Each time I visit the Magnolia area, I will always look fondly at this adorable place with such happy memories!
Out-of-towners, there is an awesome binder full of local restaurants and hangouts for you to explore!
This house was perfect for our group of 6 girls - everything was clean and as pictured. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. We had brought an air mattress just in case, but when we got there Andy already had a mattress blown up and made up for us - so thoughtful as we didn't ever ask or mention it to him! The grey couches turn into beds with extra bedding, too, so we had more than enough room for everyone. We couldn't figure out the coffee machine, but there is a great coffee shop about a 2 minute walk away (if that). We also walked to dinner, bars and brunch all off Magnolia Ave - nothing was more than a 8 minute walk away! Andy was also super accommodating on our check out time, which was again, above and beyond.
My family loved to stay at the house. It is very well located, near Magnolia Ave where many of my favorite restaurants are in Fort Worth, and no more than a 10min drive to downtown and the W 7th area. The house was very comfortable for 7 people. Very clean and neat.
The house is easy to find, and Andy is right about the location.
It was close enough to walk and leisurely stroll Magnolia.
The backyard is great, especially if you have a dog. It has a secure fence and some grass.
Our host, Andy, made us feel very welcome, with excellent communication. The house was in a perfect location, and was exactly as described. Five of us stayed and it worked great. It is less than a block from a thriving street with retail and restaurants.
The house was spotless, beds comfortable and had everything we needed. Also the backyard is very nice. We couldn't use it because it rained during our entire visit, but is a great feature, as is the off-street parking.
Instructions on using the TV, remotes, restaurant suggestions were excellent.
We would definitely stay there again.
You could hear the noise from the bar down the street on Friday night, so if noise is a problem for you, keep that in mind.
The Magnolia getaway was really fantastic. Light, bright, breezy, and super spacious. A very comfortable place to stay that is well appointed and close to great shops restaurants and bars. Andy was a brilliant and kind host. Highly recommended!
