I have lived in Dallas since 1980 so I'll be glad to tell you some of the local places to go and what to do around town.
You are welcome to use my coolers and fishing poles during your stay.
I do ask that anyone inquiring to stay at my place have your profile complete, have at least one stay/review and a photo of yourself with verifications. Thanks!

Interaction with Guests
It depends on both of our schedules. I have spent many hours speaking and hanging out with past guest. Even cooked for some and some cooked for me. LGBT friendly. I have friends from all over the world so I have been exposed to pretty much every culture. Happy and I are social butterflies. ;-)
I lived in Lake Highlands for over 7 years. They are building the Lake Highlands Town Center a block from my place. They will have shops and restaurants. We already have hiking trails and an outdoor amphitheater there.
Lake Highlands Dart rail/Metro station is less than 10 minute walk from my place, bus stop is in front. If I'm able, I can always give you a ride somewhere or pick you up.
Other Things to Note
I have friends that speak spanish and Filipino if you need a translator.
One thing I learned this winter is most people don't realize our coldest month is February so you can run into snow and ice in Dallas. Because it doesn't happen often, I would like to inform my guess that the City of Dallas is not prepared to make the roads safe for travel. Keep this in mind if planning vacation here.
First of all, enjoy yourself during your stay
Please pick up after yourself
Respect my home and Happy (my dog) she will be your buddy if you let her.
When leaving, shut your bedroom door and make sure front and back doors are locked at all times. Sometimes you have to pull the front door towards you to make the deadbolt lock.
No smokers, no smoking inside or out/No pets
Park in spots that are not covered and/or reserved
My parents were visiting me in Dallas from Green Bay, WI and stayed with Carrie for a few nights. The room was spacious and comfortable and Carrie was a personable host. Her dog Happy is very sweet and well behaved. I would recommend staying with Carrie. Her place is near White Rock Lake, which is a mecca for cyclists and runners
Perfect host. Carrie was very friendly. Location is great. Close to train station. Next time in Dallas i will stay there again!!!
Carrie was an excellent host - very friendly and a high level of communication leading up to and throughout the stay. I had a great time at her place chatting and of course playing with her dog, happy. Highly recommended!
Carrie was the consummate host. Her house was in a lovely area, quiet yet convenient to town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and were grateful to Carrie and Ashley for sharing their supremely delicious Thanksgiving dinner with us!
C'est la 2eme fois que j'utilise Airbnb et c'était definitivement l'une des meilleurs expériences de ma vie!!!!!!!!! Carrie, sa fille Ashley et Happy sont tellement merveilleux!!!!!! J'avais l'impression d'être dans ma famille tellement je me sentais bien!!! Ces personnes sont vraiment merveilleuses et tellement généreuse ! J'ai pu pendant 10 jours vivre comme une vraie américaine grâce à elles et je ne pourrais jamais assez les remercier pour ça !!! Alors n'hésitez pas à rester chez Carrie car moi je n'hésiterai pas une seule seconde à séjourner chez Carrie encore si je revient à Dallas un jour!!!!
Our experience at Carries was amazing, the room and bathroom were exactly as described and a perfect fit for our needs. Carrie is such a lovely kind hearted woman who went above and beyond to make our stay even more enjoyable. Happy is just as friendly and we grew quite find of her. Carries house is conveniently located no more then a 10 minute walk from the blue line on the dart track which made it super easy to get into and out of town as we didn't have a car. We will definitely come back to Dallas to visit one day.
Carrie is a delight and has a most generous heart! She’s most accommodating of one’s needs and goes out of her way to make her guests’ comfortable. She’s most helpful on directions: I knew my way around the area of Dallas I most frequent but her driving tips shortened my journeys.
Carrie shares her entire apartment sans her bedroom & bath. There’s room in her fridge for our items; a nice little deck overlooking a grassy area is a nice spot to perch; her guest bedroom is very cozy and comfortable with an en suite bathroom—the bathroom has two doors, one off the hall and one into the guest bedroom. Therefore, you have total privacy in your bedroom and bath. A nice option if you need to cocoon.
Since Carrie works full time during the day her apartment is available to enjoy for just you. I was out & about days into long evenings so Carrie and I were like “ships passing in the night” and I wasn’t able to enjoy that comfort.
Carrie’s home is a great rental at a most affordable price and she’s a lovely and gracious host! I’ll return to Carrie’s for my next visit.
I'm originally from South Austin. I love Dallas and raised my Daughter here. But I try to go back home as much as time will allow.
Since I have been hosting I have met the greatest people and take such joy in hosting them.
Happy is my dog you see in the pictures and she brings great joy to the ones that stay here. It makes Happy, Happy!
Carrie and Happy
