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
Carrie's place was very nice, clean, convenient and the bed was comfy. Although we didn't see much of Carrie because we were at her place to sleep and shower, when we did speak to her she was very nice and welcoming; she went out of her way for us and was a great host.
Also, Happy is a sweet & beautiful soul :)
Will definitely repeat!
I know I'm repeating what everyone else has written - it is already universally acknowledged that Carrie is an awesome host, right, everyone?
When I was staying in a hotel room, I'd have to drag myself back because the moment I parted with my friends, I felt awfully lonely. But things were so much different this time! I did look forward to going back "home". I knew the cheerful Carrie and the joyful Happy were there (and yes, Happy is the happiest and smartest dog!). It felt like home and I felt safe.
Now I've found a place to stay whenever I visit Dallas :))
People, if you come to Dallas and decide to stay anywhere else, it's your own fault. Great host, beautiful room and the perfect location to get practically anywhere. Go get it!
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!
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
