Description

The space

My place is on the 1st floor w/key-less entry. I'm less than a 10 minute walk to the train station which will take you to and from DFW Airport, downtown Dallas, Fort Worth and many more activities.

I have one rescue dog, she is around 6 and I sometimes dog sit for one other dog.

1 queen pillow top bed w/en-suite bathroom. Towels and sheets provided. You have a desk, printer, keyboard and mouse in your room.

Kitchen and living room are common areas. I have a TV, Netflix, Hulu, 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 or use mine! I also have a big outdoor George Foreman Grill for your use.

I'm 5 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, Sprouts, CVS pharmacy 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.

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. So it's important to interact with both of us. ;-)

The neighborhood

I lived in Lake Highlands for over 9 years. They Lake Highlands Town Center is a block from my place. They have shops, Sprouts and restaurants. We have hiking trails and an outdoor amphitheater as well.

Getting around

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.

Amazing stay in Dallas. I had a wonderful time getting to know Carrie and her sweet dog Happy. She had great recommendations for places to go, was very helpful and fun to talk to after a day of sight-seeing. I highly recommend this place!

Carrie is an incredible hostess and Happy is such a sweetheart you can't help but fall in love with her! They made me feel so comfortable from the start. You can't go wrong choosing to stay with Carrie, her home is so warm and inviting it makes you feel like it's your home away from home. I'd highly recommend checking it out for yourself - you'll want to come back again, I know I will!

My grown son stayed with Carrie for 2 weeks while looking for a new apartment. He absolutely loved staying with her. He said she was extreamly nice, made him feel welcome and he LOVED her dog! This was a great experience for him and as a mother, I was so glad that he enjoyed his stay. I would highly reccomend Carrie's place to friends & family visiting Dallas.

Carrie is an outstanding host! I needed a place to stay/sleep while working in Dallas for the week. For me this was a perfect arrangement, her apartment was blocks from where I was working and close to many biking trails, which I would explore after work. It is also close to some trendy neighborhoods in Dallas. Carrie is kind, thoughtful and has a friendly dog Happy. My stay was very comfortable, the space was clean and it was everything I needed.

I had an absolutely fabulous time at Carrie's. She made me feel incredibly welcome and went out of her way to make me feel comfortable. The room was very comfortable, with private bathroom. I could use the washer and dryer and kitchen which was very convenient. The condo has a nice patio at the back, looking out on the creek, a nice location for a sunny breakfast. I was on a work trip, the condo itself was in a quiet residential area so it was no problem getting a good rest. Also getting into Dallas was easy with the Dart rail. The station is a short walk away and takes you right into downtown. And of course Happy the dog was fun to hang out with too. All in all, highly recommended.

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!
