The Heights is a cool, artistic neighborhood that is undergoing change. New restaurants and bars are opening. 19th street has lots of funky shops and art galleries. Streets are safe for biking and we are connected to downtown with a dedicated bike trail. Restaurants, SSQQ Dance Studio, and bus stop are all close by.
No smoking anywhere inside or out, no children, no pets. Please park on the street. Explore the gardens, relax in the pool, recharge...
Dixie was very accomodating and helpful. The neighborhood was quiet and secure. The accomodations were as listed; warm, clean, private and quiet time to work.
I arrived at Dixi's to find the cutest little black cat on my bed, and felt right at home. It's lovely and cozy. Only drawback, for me, was that there wasn't much within walking distance, so it's best to have a car…Or spend some money on Uber and taxis. Loved the koi pond!
This place is a sanctuary. The house is clean and spacious and outdoor setting is lovely, just as advertised. Dixi is kind, engaging, and generous - a great host! My friend and I were here for several days and we would both definitely love to stay again. Hopefully we can join Dixi and Rich for an evening out dancing next time. Thanks Dixi!
Dixi is an incredible host. She went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and had tons of recommendations. Her home is absolutely breathtaking and has a great creative energy throughout. By far one of my favorite places that I've stayed at so far.
Perfect room, friendly landlord, comfortable beds, quiet environment, I can not think there is anything wrong with the place. My English is not good, but it makes me feel good here. Here relatively far away from my friend's house, but I do not regret choice here. Let me thank (website hidden) translate to express my feelings.
Our experience with Dixie was wonderful! Her home is an enchanting place to stay. The bedrooms were very comfortable and relaxing. The gardens were amazing! Koi pond,lap pool,orange trees and creek were amazing! Easy access to the highway and wonderful shopping close by. We will definitely visit again!
I contacted Dixi on the day that I was scheduled to arrive, and it was my first experience with airbnb. Dixi was MORE than accommodating, it was a breeze to find her and to get the key. I am a runner and found miles of places to run near the canal near this spot. It was an absolutely stunning spot, beautiful gardens, hot tub, and everything was very clean and comfortable. The loft was very private.
I am so glad that she accommodated me at the last moment. I highly recommend this spot to anyone looking.

I am an artist, working full time creating art for public and private space. I garden, swim, bike, kayak, read, and dance. I love the blues, singer song writer folk, early country. Although there is a TV, I have no cable. I am a traveler, never a tourist.
