Hi, this townhouse is my personal residence and not a full time rental property. I am currently on a hiatus from work and am using my temporary freedom to do some traveling. While I am on the road, 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 provides 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, all three bedrooms come furnished with LED TVs with over the air access to local HD channels as well as DirecTV Now, Netflix, Amazon Prime and other streaming content via Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Roku. There is wireless internet access throughout the home. The living room and master bedroom TV's also include access to Microsoft Media Center (DVR) for recording and live playback and the living room entertainment center includes surround sound speakers in the ceiling.
The kitchen comes fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, utensils and cooking gear and with the farmers market a block away you can easily 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 two cars 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 town 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 4 ways to get downtown from the airport. A taxi is the fastest way downtown and you can hail one curbside outside of baggage claim and with no traffic you can get downtown in 25 minutes for approximately $50. Uber/Lyft can also pick up at the airport and you can hail them using their smartphone apps. Their drivers wait in a staging area at the airport and they can usually pick you up within 10 minutes with the fare to downtown running between $27 -$32 depending on traffic. A shared shuttle will cost $27 for one person so it really makes no sense unless uber/lyft for some reason are not available. Finally, the DART (light rail) is the cheapest option but also the longest. It runs every 15-30 minutes from about 4am until 1:12am during the week and until 11:42pm on weekends. You should plan at least an hour and a half from when you arrive at the airport to get downtown. The signage for the DART station at the airport is not very good but this is how you get there. 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 and follow the pedestrian walkway to the right until you reach DART station. Take the Orange line (the only train that serves the airport) to either the St. Paul or the Arts Center/Pearl St stops. 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 either the St. Paul or the Pearl/Arts Center stops it is roughly a 10 minute walk to my house.
*** Transportation around downtown ***
The city of Dallas provides a free downtown bus called Dlink that runs every 15 minutes Monday - Saturday from 11:00am to 11:30pm. The bus services most of downtown Dallas including the Arts District, West End, Convention Center, Main Street District as well as connecting service to Uptown and Bishop Arts via streetcars which are also free. There is a Dlink stop right in front of the Dallas Farmers Market which is 2 short blocks from my house.
Other things to note
I have one mountain 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.
*** Security Cameras ***
Please aware that we have installed security cameras in the entryways to the home and garage that will monitor arrivals and departures. There are no cameras in any of the bedrooms, bathrooms or common areas (kitchen, dining/living room).
We live in a downtown townhome community within close proximity of respectful neighbors that we genuinely like and with whom we have good relationships which we intend to preserve and so it is important to us that our guests treat our neighbors with the same level of respect that we do and the same level of respect which they will receive during their stay in our home. Due to unfortunate experiences with prior guests, I have certain rules in place that are non-negotiable and if you are not prepared to honor these rules then please do not proceed in requesting a reservation.
The rules are as follows:
1) The guest requesting the reservation will be 25 years or older and will be staying in the home for the entire length of the reservation.
2) The maximum number of guests allowed in the home is 6.
3) No guests other than those on the reservation are allowed in the home without prior consent.
4) Absolutely No Parties. This is not a rental for private events. Guests are expected to refrain from playing loud music or causing any other disturbances after 10:00 pm on weekdays and 12:00 am on weekends. The guest booking the reservation is responsible for the behavior of all guests on the reservation.
5) Absolutely No Smoking in the home. There is a first floor balcony and rooftop terrace where you are free to smoke.
If you are found violating any of these rules during your stay then you will be asked to depart immediately with no refund. If you are found to have more than six people in the home you will be charged an additional occupant fee of $50 per person per night.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund plus service fees back.

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. I live with my partner Aaron who is a high school Choir Director. We both share a love of traveling, meeting new people and learning about different places and cultures and for us staying with locals is the only way to travel. During my hiatus from work we are now enjoying the hosting side of Airbnb. When school is out or on long weekends we will often leave town and rent out our entire home. When we're in town we rent out our guest room(s). Collectively, we have visited over 50 countries and nearly all 50 states and are constantly looking for new and exciting places to explore. We look forward to adding you to our growing list of friends from all over the world whether we are hosting you in our home or visiting yours.
