This beautiful, bright and spacious private bedroom has an attached full bathroom and a walk-in closet. Our modern four-bedroom house is within feet of White Rock Lake Park, where there are miles of running, walking, and biking trails.

The Space

Your second-floor room has a 46" flat screen television and WiFi is available throughout the home. The queen-sized bed has impeccably soft cotton bedding and the bathroom is supplied with luxurious cotton towels.

We do have a very lazy cat living with us but he's not allowed in your room, so it's always cat-free.

Guest Access

Make yourself at home. Our gourmet kitchen is available for use of the registered guests. Complimentary Nespresso coffee, tea and bottled water is provided. Washer and dryer is available.

The Neighborhood

Our Lakewood neighborhood is centrally located in Dallas and features plenty of signature landmarks. Just steps away from our front door is White Rock Lake with plenty of scenic jogging, biking and walking trails, as well as an idyllic location for a day trip or picnic. You can discover the nearby Dallas Arboretum and Botanical gardens, which cultivates the most beautiful gardens in Texas as well as puts on special exhibits and outdoor music events.

Just a short walk (or drive) through the neighborhood are several restaurants and shopping venues. Just ask, we'll be happy to give you our favorite recommendations for your stay.

Getting around

We are close to downtown Dallas (about 6 miles) and are accessible by public transportation (rail, bus) including an on-call bus service that will pick you up at the house. If you need more information about that, let me know (I ride it regularly).

Other Things to Note

Your room is on the opposite side of the house from ours; come-and-go as you please. You'll also have access to the kitchen, living room, and laundry area, so make yourself at home. For your safety, there is a security system.

  • We didn't want to leave!! Seriously, I just can't say enough wonderful things about this home and the awesome couple that own it. Even before we arrived we felt as if we had known them forever. They went over and beyond to make sure that we felt at home and had anything you can imagine to make our stay wonderful. This was our first airbnb experience and I have a feeling this experience will be hard to top. There is no other place in Dallas you will want to stay besides here. If you offered me the Westin at the same price I would still pick Joel and Luke's home.

  • We could not have been more pleased with our accommodations. It was very clean and well stocked with all those items you forget. It was very relaxing. When we came in after being out all day, low music would be playing. There was a small refrigerator with water and soft drinks which was so appreciated after being out in the Dallas heat, even a glass of wine. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood within a few miles of shopping and close to White Rock Lake and the Arboretum. We went to Dallas because our daughter was being married there. We had so much running to do, decorating the church, rehearsal dinner, and the ceremony. It could have been a very stressful time but it turned out to also be a lovely vacation. This location was within 5 minutes of the church one direction, and within 5 minutes of my daughter's apartment in the other direction. It was wonderful to be so close and not have to fight traffic all the time.

  • Two great guys and a great house in a great location. These fellas want you to feel right at home. It was a great time!!

  • Joel and Luke's home is beautiful, clean and so peaceful; it was a perfect place to come back to after family gatherings. The neighborhood is beautiful, too, very close to White Rock Lake. We met Joel and he was kind and so accommodating, showing us where everything that we would need was located. He was very considerate and let us know when the housekeeper would be there. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

  • Joel and Luke's place is everything I could have hoped for in an Airbnb room! It's located in a beautiful home in a safe neighborhood that is close to all the best parts of Dallas. Joel and Luke thought of everything to make my stay more comfortable, from making sure I was hydrated to making sure I knew where to get the tastiest vittles in Dallas. The room was spacious and stocked with anything else I might have needed (toothpaste, floss, soap, shampoo), just like a hotel, but way better! The bed was comfy and the sheets were soft.

    Do yourself a favor in Dallas and stay with Joel and Luke!

    I'm so glad that you liked your room and your stay in Dallas! We do try to make it a home away from home. We love the Lakewood area of Dallas, too, and like to show it off to visitors. Hope to see you again soon!

  • Unfortunately I do not own a copy of the OED, as my vocabulary is not sufficient to describe how incredible both the hosts and the house really are.

    My interactions with Joel over the phone and email were superb. He was very fast, courteous, efficient, and succint in all his texts and emails.

    Upon meeting him and Luke in person, the chattier, we-will-bend-backwards-for-you-as-hosts aspects came through. For example, who else would leave such a great bottle of Merlot or chilled water bottles for their guests? Yep, I am going to start doing that for my mom.

    Luke and Joel were also great resources for learning about Dallas, not only in terms of the standard food recommendations (which were great, by the way), but also regarding neighborhood safety, public transit, access to nature, and cultural options in Dallas that defy the stereotypes.

    This review would be incomplete if I did not mention the physical facilities of the house proper. Even if they turned out to be mean ogres, the place alone would still be worth your stay. The nice pictures on this site do not do enough justice at the comfort level and pleasant location that the guest will find. In fact, I regret immensely that the quick trip prevented me from leisurely spending full 8 hours of sleep on a mattress built by geese angels.

    Response from Joel:

    I'm so glad that y'all had a wonderful trip to Dallas while staying with us. Luke's a life-long Dallas resident so he knows the ins and outs of the city. We'd love to have y'all back soon!

  • Man, what can I say - best area in Dallas, best house on airbnb in Dallas and best hosts in Dallas..... I absouetly LOVED staying here. You can literally live the lakewood lifestyle from start to finish. The lake is a few hundred feet away and boy, its a good lake. The house is just awesome with the room laid out like a 5* Hotel. I can honestly say that this was my first experience of airbnb and I now have a very high benchmark for this service. If you are international, be sure to go round to the wholefoods market, it's an experience all of it's own - and just round the corner. Thanks so much guys..... If you'll hjave me, i WILL be back......

    Response from Joel:

    Thanks, Rob, for the great words about the house and I'm glad that you enjoyed your time in Lakewood and in Dallas as a whole. It's great that you were able to enjoy the lake (the nine-mile loop is quite a feat!) and we'd definitely love to have you back.

  • Once again I had a perfect stay with Joel and Luke. They are amazing hosts and make my trips to see my grandson even more enjoyable. Of course I'll be back--again and again!

    Response from Joel:

    Thanks again, Paul, for choosing to stay with us. It's really become our niche to provide a home away from home for guests who are visiting family in the Lakewood (and Dallas) area.

  • Thank you Joel and Luke for your thoughtfulness and for taking such good care of us. You have a very beautiful home in a lovely neighbourhood. We already miss sitting outside on the front porch for a read in the rocking chairs, and we especially miss Dobbie's morning meow! We enjoyed our stay tremendously and will be back.

  • The house, Joel, and Luke were great. They were very gracious and friendly, and the room is quiet, clean, and serene. Great location near White Rock Lake but also convenient (by car) to many parts of Dallas.

About
Luke and I are long-time residents of the beautiful Lakewood neighborhood in Dallas adjacent to White Rock Lake Park. We both enjoy running, walking, and biking on the miles of trails and paths surrounding the lake as well as the numerous restaurants, cafes, and stores that are nearby. We both enjoy traveling and, together, have been to over sixty countries. The destinations scheduled for the next few months include South Korea, Thailand, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, China, and Myanmar. We look forward to sharing Dallas with our guests and look forward to your stay with us!
