The Space

Relax...let your cares melt away in this "Moroccan spa" themed home! With plants and flowers in abundance, and your choice of a hot-tub, steam sauna, and jacuzzi to sink into, you'll find your zen here! On a quiet street, but just minutes from Addison's bustling nightlife.

Home to a spa-loving, chef/gardener/technologist, this 2300 sq/ft garden home in Addison (replete with accommodations designed to help you relax completely!) is great for a couple’s weekend retreat, a solo traveler that wants to pamper themselves, or a family enjoying the Big D! You’ll be conveniently located just 1 mile from Beltline Rd., home to more than 170 bars and restaurants.

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 yoga studio (wide open, and can easily accommodate an air mattress for extra guests), and a large office (could also accommodate an air mattress) make this home ideal for large groups of guests. The house has beautiful Espresso hardwood and ceramic tile floors throughout. New stainless steel appliances, top quality cookware, outdoor gas grill, and an herb garden (help yourself!) for you aspiring chefs out there will add some options when it comes to dining choices. Spa lovers (like myself) are in for a treat as well: a six person hot tub is located right in the middle of the back patio garden. The master bath has a large Jacuzzi tub, and the guest bath has a “steam shower” that seals to create a very relaxing sauna. My goal when designing my home was to create a serene, peaceful environment that de-stresses the mind and the body and immediately puts guests at ease. It works well for me, and my hope is that it can do the same for you.

Living/Sleeping/Relaxing:
Sleeps up to 10 with air mattresses
The den area has a large leather, configurable sectional, 65” TV with Netflix, Hulu, and HBOGo, a Xbox 360 w/ Kinnect (and plenty of games!), and a gas fireplace.
The Master bedroom has a new King Sealy Posturepedic, 55” TV with input connections for Ipad/Iphone (and cable), and a meditation/chillaxing cove that gazes out into the garden. The large master bath has dual sinks, a large jacuzzi tub (selection of bath salts and bubble baths provided) and a separate stand-alone shower. There’s even a hairdryer available for your convenience.
Bedroom number two has an extra-large bunk bed, with full-size mattresses (not traditional twin size). This is perfect for kids of all ages!
Clean towels and sheets will be ready for every guest.
The newly installed, relaxing hot tub fits up to 6 people comfortably.
For business travelers, I provide a free fast Wifi connection (25Mbps down / 4 Mbps up).
To keep you fit on your travels, the yoga studio is completely set up with mats, blocks, padded floor, pull-up bar, bands, a flat screen TV with a selection of yoga and exercise DVDs, and a mini-fridge stocked with COMPLIMENTARY bottled water.
The office is quite large, and beautifully-appointed with printer and extra monitor.
Finally, the private patio, surrounded by flowers, is a perfect place to enjoy a cigar and/or a bottle of wine!

Dining:
The home has a large dining room table that seats 6, and expands to accommodate 10 very comfortably; I have 4 extra matching chairs to complete the set in the attic. Let me know if you need them, and I’ll pull them down and have them ready for you!
I've outfitted the house with brand new appliances - the fridge, freezer, oven, and washer/ dryer are all top of the line and less than 2 years old.
The gourmet kitchen is equipped with top of the line cooking accessories and fully stocked, replete with spices, oils, and baking supplies for your cooking needs. Just to the right of the kitchen you’ll find a fantastic gas grill, perfect for a nice Texas-sized steak!
There’s even a Keurig single cup coffee maker w/ COMPLIMENTARY coffee!
And to guarantee flavorful dishes, help yourself to any herbs from the garden. There’s nothing better than fresh herbs! Use as many as you like.
Please help yourself to the honor bar, as well. I’ve stocked it with some of my personal Texas favorites!

Extra Goodies:
Just 150 feet from the front door is the entrance to a running trail, which also serves as access to the kids’ park (with new jungle gyms and slides) and dog park.
Parking for two cars in the driveway
Easy access to I-635 (LBJ Frwy) and the Dallas North Tollway (DNT)
2.5 mi. from Addison Airport
18 mi. from DFW Airport

Please note! Check-in time is 3:00pm every day except Sundays. Sunday check-in time is 5:00pm. This is to allow Andrea, the loving caretaker of the home when I'm away, time to both go to church and to get the house perfectly clean for you, the guest. Thanks for understanding!

Guests will have full and private access to the entire home!

  • We had a fantastic time! The house is spectacular and filled with amenities you won't find in any hotel. Charles has put a lot of thought into the customer experience, and it shows - he had detailed instructions placed throughout the house for everything we could possibly need and/or want to use, from the coffee maker to the hot tub. His honor bar is stocked with a variety of local beverages for those who want an authentic taste of Texas. The neighborhood was quiet and easy to reach from major thoroughfares, which made getting around town a breeze.

  • My parents enjoyed staying here very much. There was a small issue where there was no cable (and they stayed during the world cup!) but Charles was extremely quick at responding to give us the master wifi password so we could connect a Chromecast. Overall, very happy with the place, and it's in a darling neighborhood, minutes away from a really cute walking trail.

  • This was a lovely home in a great area! We had a nice relaxing and comfortable weekend in Charles' house. He is excellent and easy to work with and we would definitely like to stay again if we are in the area.

  • Spent five days in the Addison area for a conference. This house made the experience much more enjoyable. A thousand times better than a hotel room. The house was very clean, modern and provides a ton of amenities. It is in a really nice, quiet and safe neighborhood with all the restaurants and shopping you need within just a few blocks. The ONLY issue we had was that there was no cable in the living room and the NBA playoffs were on :-) We all retreated to the master bedroom to watch (which has cable).

  • Two friends and I stayed here while attending a conference in Addison. The home was great. Charles was very kind and had everything taken care of for us. After a long, exhausting day working the conference, we were able to truly relax in the hot tub.

    The beds were comfy, the home was beautiful (and smelled amazing), the towels were soft, the experience was grand. I would definitely book with Charles again.

  • This was a great place to stay! The neighborhood is fabulous! It is quiet, peaceful, serene... The layout of the house is fantastic! We really enjoyed the open concept. The beds are comfortable and the furniture throughout is nice as well. Thank you for sharing your place with us, Charles. It was a pleasurable experience.

  • I took my best friend here for her bachelorette party weekend with 8 of our closest friends. It was the best time we have had together in months. It was the perfect place for all of use to come together and not have the hassle of trying to work with a hotel. The house in beautiful with a quiet yet cozy neighborhood. Charles made sure everything was ready for us when we got there and that everything ran smoothly through out the weekend. He was very easy to work with and just a phone call away for anything we needed. He answered all of our questions quickly and easily. This was our first experience renting a place with Airbnb or anything similar, it turned out perfect!
    Thank you so much for everything you did for us!

  • My family so enjoyed Charles' home. We loved the location, especially the park that is only a three minute walk away. The house was lovely. The master bedroom is spacious, the open living room/kitchen was great for entertaining and cooking. Charles had many plants throughout the house, which really enhanced the homeyness of the house. We would definitely stay there again, and we hope it is available the next time we go through Dallas. Thanks Charles!
