TCU, Colonial Golf Course, and the Fort Worth Zoo are also all within easy reach, located less than 5 miles away.
Catch city Bus #2 less than a quarter-mile away, at Camp Bowie and Hillcrest. Provides direct access to the Intermodal Transit Center, downtown (and nearby Sundance Square), West 7th area, the museums and Will Rogers Center, and UNTHSC. We're happy to provide route and schedules.
No smoking or pets, please.
We LOVED this place, from the minute we stepped over the threshold. It's smartly decorated and very clean. The setup worked great for our family of five (only four sleeping spots, so we brought along an air mattress). Really like the neighborhood too. It's within easy walking distance of Central Market, FW's museum district, and lots of restaurants. I'm a bit of a lodging snob, but this place I HIGHLY recommend! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
Alison was there to welcome us after our long flight from the UK. The loft was lovely , clean and cool.A nice respite from the hot Texas weather as we began to adjust. There was fruit and lovely scones along with coffee and tea to tie us over till we shopped. The Loft was very nicely presented and better than described. We felt at home straight away. The bedrooms were a good size, simply decorated but tasteful and in keeping with the period of homes in the area. The location for our purposes was just great, easy access from the airport and downtown. Although we didn't see much of Alison because of our schedule we were very relaxed and knew that help would be at hand should we have needed it. The loft was a homely place to host our long time Texan friend who had recently moved to the east coast.
I was just sorry we left in a hurry without expressing our thanks personally, as I had discovered I had the wrong departure time for our return flight!
Thanks for making our stay enjoyable. We love Texas!!! We'll be back.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Alison's place. The apartment itself is beautifully designed, impeccably clean, and well located in an elegant and quiet residential area. I stayed there for three weeks while in Fort Worth for work, and Alison had thought about/provided everything one could possibly need for an extended stay (from little plastic baggies to timetables for the local bus line). She and her husband were incredibly helpful in coordinating my transportation to the apartment and very responsive and friendly in their texts and emails, but also wonderfully unobtrusive--they did their thing, and I did mine, which worked well for me as an extended guest. At the same time, they made me feel more than welcome and even had the loft cleaned when their house was being serviced. I enthusiastically recommend their place for short-term or long-term stays. If you don't drive or won't have a car, know that it's very easy to find most things you need within walking distance.
The apartment was an amazing space for our trip to Ft. Worth! It's location could not be beat as it was in a gorgeous neighborhood near museums, nightlife, etc. The space itself was gorgeous, spotless, and incredibly comfortable. Alison was an excellent host who was very responsive and very friendly. I would recommend this space to anybody!
We felt very welcome with our welcome basket. Everything we needed, microwave, stove, fridge, plates, silverware etc was all provided for us. The bathroom was well stocked with towels, and shampoo, conditioner, and soap. It was a home away from home. We had bad weather during our weekend stay and or hosts deiced my car, our steps and our walking path for us. We felt we were very taken care of!
This place is as cute and inviting as the photos indicate. Alison did a great job and made us feel right at home. Plus, the location can't be beat. At this spot you are perfectly poised to visit the Stockyards, stroll through downtown, attend the rodeo and get a bite to eat in Southside. Plus there is a fabulous grocery store nearby (Central Market) if you want to a make a quick meal.
A wonderful place to stay! Our daughter lives in the neighborhood and was having our first grandchild. We rented the loft for three weeks with my wife there the whole time and my son and me there for the last week - worked beautifully with my daughter's house in easy walking distance. The private entrance and the pleasant neighborhood made our frequent trips to visit the new baby a breeze. We were also able to easily give the new parents private time as the full cooking facilities in the loft allowed us to have our meals there and even prepare meals for the new parents.
The flat is clean and bright, well heated, and very pleasantly decorated. The kitchen eating area window faces east and on a sunny day is a stellar place to have breakfast with a view into the backyard and a large tree. And I should mention Sonny (Sunny?), a beautiful and soft calico cat that is often in the backyard. The bedrooms have good-sized closets and bedside drawers for storage and the beds are very comfortable. A Kurig coffee maker with a selection of coffees and bottled water were provided and an email to Alison quickly produced more bottled water when we started to run out.
All in all a great place to stay and we will definitely be staying again on our next visit, if possible.
