This beautiful 3 story downtown townhouse with awesome Dallas skyline views is the ideal stop for both business and leisure travelers. Comes with 3BR, 3.5 Bath, full kitchen, living room, dining room, laundry, garage and spectacular rooftop deck.
The townhome is a newly built, eco-friendly 3 story townhouse with wood floors and high ceilings throughout 2350 square feet. Enjoy incredible views from the rooftop terrace, garage parking and walking to everything you need in this ideal downtown Dallas location.
Hi, this townhouse is my personal residence and not a full time rental property. I am currently taking a hiatus from work and plan to use my temporary freedom to do some extended traveling. While I am gone, I am renting out my home. In addition to its comfortable lived in feel and fully stocked kitchen and laundry room, it is ideally located for both the business traveler or the tourist and is an excellent alternative to staying in a hotel.
My townhouse comes furnished with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms with 1 king and 2 queen size beds and accommodates up to 6 guests. Two air mattresses are also available for guests that prefer individual sleeping arrangements. The maximum number of guests in the home is limited to 6 people.
In addition to the living room, two bedrooms come furnished with LED TVs with over the air access to local channels (no cable) and there is free wireless internet access throughout the house. The living room and master bedroom TV's include access to Microsoft Media Center, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
The kitchen comes fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, utensils and cooking gear and with the farmers market right across the street you have no excuse to not whip yourself up a home cooked meal.
Guests will also have access to the laundry room which has a high efficiency front loading washer, dryer and is stocked with detergent, bleach and fabric softener.
On the rooftop terrace there is patio furniture and a shade umbrella for hanging out and enjoying the Dallas skyline and a gas grill in the event that you would like to grill up your own Texas BBQ.
There is space available for one car in the attached garage along with additional street guest parking if needed.
Guests will access the property through a keypad lock I have on the front door using their own individual passcodes.
Interaction with Guests
I will most likely be out of the country so the only interaction with guests will be via email or telephone.
The townhouse is conveniently located downtown directly across from the Dallas Farmers Market with easy access to the Business District, Deep Ellum, the Arts District, West End, Convention Center and the DART.
You can literally walk to just about anything you need. Restaurants, bars, live music venues, shopping, public transportation, etc... D Magazine's top burger, pizza and BBQ joints are within a 10 minute walk. In addition, the location is just a few blocks from both the central expressway and I-30 allowing easy access to the rest of Dallas if needed.
The megabus station is a 5 minute walk from my house. The heart of downtown, the Pearl St./Arts District DART stop and Deep Ellum are all within a 10 minute walk from my house. The Convention Center is about 15 minutes and the Greyhound bus terminal and Union Station are about 20 minutes.
*** From DFW airport ***
If you choose not to rent a car there are essentially 3 ways to get downtown from the airport. A taxi is the fastest way downtown and with no traffic you can get downtown in 25 minutes for $49 (+$2 per addl passenger). A shared shuttle will cost around $22 per person and will likely take 45 minutes to an hour and should be reserved in advance. Finally, the DART is the cheapest option but also the longest. It runs every 15-30 minutes from about 4am until 1:12am during the week and 11:42pm on weekends. You should plan at least an hour and a half from when you arrive at the airport to get downtown. First, you will need to make your way to the far north end of Terminal A on either the Skytrain (inside security) or the shuttle bus (outside baggage claim). From there, take the elevator to the bottom floor, walk outside the terminal, turn right and follow the pedestrian walkway to the DART station. Take the Orange line (the only train that serves the airport) to the Arts Center/Pearl St stop. Trains leave every 15-20 minutes during the daytime (30-60 minutes after 11pm) and take approximately 50 minutes to get downtown. If you are traveling between 9:30am and 2:30pm weekdays it will run you $1.75 per person, all other times are $2.50 per person and you can buy a ticket using a credit card at the kiosk on the train platform or through the gopass downloadable app on your smartphone. From the Arts Center stop it is a 10 minute walk down Pearl Street to my house.
*** To DFW airport ***
UberX's regular (non-surge) fare with no traffic is approximately $26 to DFW; UberX/Lyft are not allowed to pick up at the airport. There is an airport shuttle that leaves every half hour from the Omni Hotel for $15 and does not require a reservation.
Other Things to Note
I have one mountain bike and one road bike that guests are welcome to use to roam around town.
*** Reservation requests ***
As I'm sure you can understand, I like to know who I'm renting my house to while I'm away. Prior to submitting any reservation request please make sure that your profile is updated including a photo. Also, in your inquiry please include your reason for visiting Dallas and a brief description of the individuals that will be staying in my home. I welcome first time Airbnb guests but if you don't have any history or references then I'll have to evaluate you based on your profile and info that you include in your reservation request so please be specific. Thanks!
No smoking in the home. There is a first floor balcony and rooftop terrace where you are welcome to smoke.
Please show respect to my neighbors by refraining from playing loud music or engaging in any other disturbances after 10pm during the week and after midnight on the weekends.
Jeff the host was welcoming and quick to answer any questions. While he was traveling, he left excellent directions on how to access his place and a detailed but not overdone instruction manual. He is the owner of a gorgeous townhouse in downtown Dallas. Very close to the dart station, deep ellum, downtown, and only a short cab ride to uptown/ knox henderson/greenville ave. Also right across the street from the Dallas farmers market. His place is very clean and beautifully decorated with plenty of room and an amazing view of the Dallas skyline. My party and I had a wonderful stay for our first Airbnb experience! Thanks Jeff for opening your home to us!
Me and my friends were visiting Dallas for the first time and Jeffs house in downtown was the perfect stop. Everything leading up to the trip was excellent any questions I had Jeff was able to answer and when arrving the house manual answered any further questions we might of had.
The house itself was perfect there was 4 of us staying there and there was a more than enough room over the 4 floors. We loved the rooftop deck where you could just sit out and enjoy the views. The house was very clean and there was everything you needed. We went in to uptown a few nigths and it was about 5/10 mintue taxi ride. If we were to visit Dallas again I will be certain to be staying at Jeffs house.
Jeff's home is quite possibly the best Air BnB experience I have ever had!
He made us feel very welcomed via contact before actually arriving into his home, during the stay with a "House Manual" answering any questions we may have, and also he was available via email in case we had other questions.
The home, itself, was in amazing condition and looked gorgeous; exactly like the pictures showed. He converted an office into a third bedroom for us and was very flexible with the dates we needed!
The location was ideal for our stay in Dallas and the weather was great for evenings on the balcony!
The rooms were equipped with anything we could possibly want and the kitchen was as well. The pantry had been filled with some canned goods and snacks upon our arrival.
I do not have one negative comment about Jeff or his home.
I will definitely look for this home if I am ever in Dallas again!
Jeff was great. He was super communicative and helpful prior to our getting to Dallas and while we were there as well. His place was even nicer than the photos! We were in for a wedding and the weather was HOT so it was a great shelter when we did not have to be somewhere. He had a nice house manual which answered any questions we had while there. Jeff's place was in a nice neighborhood (near Deep Ellum) and convenient to a bunch of the City attractions, restaurants, shopping, etc. The rooms were great (there were five of us) and we absolutely loved the Kitchen and Living Room areas. Can't say enough good things about it.
This was a great experience. Jeff was easy to contact and the pictures online represented the townhome very well. It was clean and well furnished. Parking can be difficult if you have more then one car but thats a small price to pay for a wonderful stay!
We just had an AMAZING stay at Jeff's beautiful townhome. We were in town for a wedding, and traveling with our son, and we all immensely enjoyed staying here. (We didn't want to leave!) The house itself is gorgeous, really conveniently located (enjoyed walking to the Farmer's Market), the place was immaculate and well-stocked, and so easy to feel at home. Jeff as a host was absolutely wonderful - very responsive and accommodating, and such a pleasure to communicate with. Whenever we go back to Dallas, we'll be checking to see if this place is available - we would love to consider it our home away from home :)

About the Host, Jeff
Following 15 years tied to a desk, I quit my finance job and decided to take a break from work to go see the world. During this hiatus I'll be renting out my home. While I'm traveling, I rent out my entire home and when I'm in town I rent out my guest room. I spent the summer of 2014 exploring Europe and while I was there I stayed with locals (with Airbnb) whenever possible. I love meeting new people and learning about new places and cultures and for me staying with locals is the only way to travel. I have now been to 49 countries and will be heading to number 50 soon. I look forward to adding you to my growing list of friends from all over the world whether I'm hosting you in my home or I'm visiting yours.
A lesser known attraction is the current municipal court building that was the old Police HQ and where Lee Harvey Oswald was assassinated by Jack Ruby. The historical marker is on Hardwood St.
You can pick up the free downtown bus in front of Wild Salsa restaurant (which also has great tacos). It runs every 15 minutes around downtown from 11 am to 11:30 pm M-Sat and it's free!
The closest supermarket within walking distance.
Conventions, conferences, shows.
Very cool statues of longhorn cattle. If you are walking to the convention center you'll walk right by them. If your not going to the convention center then you should still go see this.
D Magazine has named it best pizza in Dallas. I'm not sure its the best in Dallas but it's definitely the best you can walk to in less than 10 minutes and $1 mimosas for Sat/Sun brunch.
Voted as best burger in Dallas by readers of D magazine. It's also got great root beer and it's less than a 10 minute walk from my house.
Best BBQ in Dallas according to D Magazine and I tend to agree. It's open for lunch during the week and adds dinner on Fri/Sat nights but go early and order the brisket as they will likely run out.
Not many people know that if you leave your ID at the security desk you can go up the elevator to the sky lobby for free which is the floor right under the big hole in the building and has great views
A product of the 1960s, this neighborhood is littered with cool graffiti, abstract sculptures and interesting bars, restaurants and shops. Bring your camera, it's a great setting for photography.
This simple monument to the slain president was built on a plaza adjacent to the Texas School Book Depository building.
One of the best bargains in Dallas is the free open air uptown trolley. Catch it behind the art museum and hop on and off at any point as you explore uptown Dallas. M-F 7am-10pm, Sat & Sun 10am-10pm
It's not the Met but it's a very respectable art museum that nearly always has interesting special exhibits to see. Across the street is the Nasher sculpture museum which is also worthwhile.
If you can catch a concert at the Meyerson Center do, it has perfect acoustics and every seat in the hall is a great seat.
A must see on a trip to Dallas is the 6th floor museum and grassy knoll where President Kennedy was assassinated.
This is a great new science museum that just opened in the summer of 2013. It's an amazing museum but I recommend going in the afternoon to avoid being ambushed by school children on field trips.
Watch the Mavs, Stars or any number of other concerts and shows perform here. You can walk it in about 30 min or its a 10 min ride on Dlink, the free bus that stops in front of Wild Salsa restaurant.
