It's seriously awesome, it's way cool, and it's where you should stay when in D. My place is in one of Dallas' best neighborhoods, close to the pulse of the city. You get a whole wing of the house - be as social or private as you like.
Way cool and WAAAAY cooler than a hotel/motel! You can enjoy total privacy with the arrangement I've got in my house. 1 bedroom + private TV room + 2 bathrooms = happy happy traveler! Yep, you get a whole wing of my house all to yourself, so if you're one of the airbnb-ers who's like "I WANT SPACE!", well, this is your perfect hookup. My house is pretty large (over 4000 feet) and located in a wonderful neighborhood, two blocks from White Rock Lake, which is probably Dallas' best feature. Rent a bike to cruise around the lake, or run, or jog, or walk, or sit... whatever, it's a great spot. Lakewood, my neighborhood, was recently named "Best Neighborhood for Wealthy Buyers", which makes it sound all stuffy and high-tone, but it's not like that. We're friendly Texans here, dang it!! As for the wealthy part, well, ask yourself, "If this guy's so loaded, why's he renting out a room in his house?" Exactly!! BUT - you'll be treated like you're a kabillionaire when you stay with me. Super-comfy Beautyrest queen-size mattress, Calvin Klein linens, your own 42" flatscreen TV with DVR recorder (HBO, Showtime, etc.), and TWO bathrooms, great for couples. Your two rooms are located at the opposite end of the house and on a different level than my bedroom, so stay up all night if you want, you won't bother me. And you're totally welcome to use the common areas of the house, including the kitchen, where you'll have your own space in the 'frig for your groceries. High speed wireless to keep you socially connected.
Lakewood has some great restaurants, and is about ten minutes from the kickass night life of Lower Greenville, Deep Ellum, Uptown, and downtown Dallas. About a fifteen minute walk to the bus line if you don't have a car.
This is a no-brainer, airbnb traveler. I promise you'll be happy with your choice. Bring yourself/yourselves, but not your pooch or kiddos. Sorry, I love dogs and kids, but my house is just not geared for either. Other than that, enjoy!
Guests get a bedroom, two bathrooms, and a TV lounge to themselves, but are totally welcome in my kitchen, living room, family room, and both eating areas.
Interaction with Guests
I let my guests make this call. If you're a people person, I am too. If you want to pretty much be left alone, I'll give you your space!
Lakewood is both old and new, with lots of great houses built in the 30's, and a fair amount of new construction as well. The highlight is White Rock Lake, just two blocks from my house. Great restaurants and bars nearby, and just ten minutes to Dallas' hottest night spots.
Bus line is one mile from my house.
Other Things to Note
I'm a friendly, easy-going guy, and I'm confident that you'll feel immediately comfortable in my house.
If you're a slob, you need to stay at Slobby House instead of my place! I'm not militant about cleanliness, but my house is pretty darn nice, and I want to keep it that way. Enjoy the place, but try not to leave behind permanent reminders of your stay.
David is a star. There is not quite another way to put it. His energy and passion shine so bright. His home is stunning. The pictures could not do it justice. The accommodations were great and very comfortable. The beauty is in the details here. The art and attention paid to the little things makes the house feel like a home that would be in architectural digest. But enough about the house itself. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe and a 10 min walk to the lake. If you haven't checked it out, book another night and go to the arboretum. What are you waiting for? The price was so low I was skeptical at first but the numbers don't lie and I cannot recommend this enough. I'm surely going back soon!
What an awesome host, house, and location. David was extremely generous with his time and knowledge of the area. I would highly recommend this place to anyone
David's place is very nice. The space was very comfortable and clean and David was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this Air B&B to anyone. I will definitely try to book it on future trips to Dallas.
David's Airbnb listing was fabulous! It is exactly as he describes--but better! It was the perfect location for my stay and he went beyond what I would anticipate from a host to make sure I had access to everything I would need while working. The area of the house is perfect for an Airbnb guest and his craftsmanship and decorating of the house will blow you away. I highly recommend staying at David's if you are in town for business or maybe a short get away with a friend or family member. You will not be disappointed!
My First AirBnB Stay!
David was very friendly and a real people person:) He gave us a key, a tour (his home is BEAUTIFUL! ) and made sure to make us feel at home, and he gave some information about Dallas. Everything was as it is pictured. Everytime we spoke, David was more than kind to us. I drove around the neighborhood and it was lovely.He lives close to a park, restaurants, movies, plazas... I highly recommend this stay.
David was awesome. His place is amazing. We had two rooms out our disposal - the bedroom and then a TV room - as well as all the shared spaces. I didn't see David at all because I was in and out the entire time but it's testament to how he is very discreet and lets you keep to yourself if you wish, but was only ever a text message away if I needed anything. A wonderful residence, beautiful neighborhood and perfect host. Couldn't recommend David and his place highly enough.
David's House looked even better than the photos. He was very accommodating with our late arrival and early departure. Although I didn't get to talk to him for that long, he was very friendly. His house is in a beautiful and convenient area. Everything that I needed was supplied (towels, shampoo, soap, etc). The bed is also really comfortable. I had a great stay, and I hope to come back again.

Need a new house? I'll build you one! I'm a custom homebuilder. Or just stay at my place and save your money for more meaningful stuff, like traveling!! I spend Monday through Friday dealing with cranky rich people, so my weekends are dedicated to forgetting about cranky rich people. You'll generally find me on my bicycle, swimming, running, or figuring out some way to beat up my body at the gym - I'm a triathlete, something I love. I also love rock concerts and music in general, mountains, forests, lakes, Portland, t-shirts, other people's dogs, and dumpy restaurants with great food. Don't have time for vacations, so you can tell me how awesome they are and make me cry. Social guy here, which probably explains me going to five universities before FINALLY graduating. (Wouldn't trade those days for anything.) So, yeah, I like people. Unless I'm building your house and you call me on the weekend - then I don't like you. But I'll definitely like YOU if you stay at my super-cool place.
