The Space

My place is on the first floor in Lake Highlands. Walking distance to the train station which will take you to and from DFW Airport, downtown Dallas, Fort Worth and many more activities.

1 queen pillow top bed w/attached private bathroom. Towels and sheets provided. There is a desk, printer, keyboard and mouse you can use.

Kitchen and living room are common areas. I have cable TV, Netflix, DVD, WII, Washer and Dryer, Iron and Ironing board.

Back patio backs up to the Greenbelt, very peaceful to read or drink your morning coffee; I have a keurig coffee maker, bring your k-cups! I also have a big outdoor George Foreman Grill for your use.

I'm 10 miles to Downtown Dallas, even closer to Lower Greenville, Uptown, Deep Ellum, White Rock Lake and walking distance to Lake Highlands Dart Rail Station and bus stop. Great for going to the AAC to see the Dallas Stars hockey and Mavericks Basketball.

Mi Cocina, Picasso Pizza and LA Fitness across the street.

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 have a shower chair should you need one.

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!

Guest Access

Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dinning/living area, swimming pool and back patio.

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. ;-)

The Neighborhood

I lived in Lake Highlands for over 7 years. They are building the Lake Highlands Town Center a block from my condo. They will have shops, restaurants and train station. We already have hiking trails and an outdoor amphitheater

Getting around

Dart rail (public transportation) starting August 18, 2014 will begin running to/from DFW Airport. Lake Highlands Dart rail station is walking distance to the condo, bus stop is in front. If I'm able, I can always give you a ride somewhere or pick you up. Even though you can have something to do everyday using our transit system, I do suggest anyone staying in Dallas more than a couple of days rent a car.

  • Carrie was an excellent host and her dog Happy is so cute & well-behaved you can't help but love her to bits! Carrie was so kind enough to spend the day showing me around Dallas and I was lucky enough to sample her martini drink :) The condo is well situated and has a warm cozy atmosphere. We'll definitely see each other again!

  • Incredible and awesome experience staying with Carrie. She provides a great hospitality by giving advice about the city, things to do, and even makes a martini drink for you!!!
    The room, bath, and house as a whole are well kept.
    A good friendship has come out of this trip. Her pet is just adorable and impossible not to love.
    Highly recommended.

  • My friend Lauranne and I had a really good time at Carrie's place. The localisation was perfect for us and the room was really cosy. We felt very welcomed by Carrie and her daughter, you can really tell that Carrie loves meeting new people. And her dog, Happy, was a delight. If you are looking for a place to stay in Dallas, you should definitely go there!

  • We had a great stay at Carrie's place! Her home felt like my home the minute I walked in. We had great conversations with Carrie and her daughter, Ashley. We came as guests and left as friends! We also had a great time loving on her dog, Happy, whose name is well-suited. I am looking forward to my next stay at Carrie's place the next time I am in Dallas.

  • Carrie was very nice! I only had time to sleep and shower. She has a nice bedroom set up for her guest. I was in town for business, and got a little lost headed to her condo. Carrie helped me navigate to her house over the phone. I slept very well, and her dog is awesome :) and Happy did not make a fuss while I was walking out the door. btw, my dog whines!! I would stay here again!

About
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. I have been hosting on airbnb for less than a year but 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
