Rick did a great job communicating the day before and of on how and when to get in the house. The house is bigger than the photos lead on which was a pleasant surprise. Everything is very modern- almost too modern- we never did figure out the entertainment center and the light switches took us most of the day to get the hang of.
The rooftop was great but unfortunately the jacuzzi was way too hot to go in, as in burning your flesh hot. That was a big let down because when we were ready to go in and couldn't there was nothing we could do about it and didn't end up being able to use it.
Fantastic house in a great neighborhood. We couldn't have had a better experience, would highly recommend
Rick was great! I didn't get to personally meet him but he was always just a phone call away. He answered any questions that arose during the weekend as well as gave us recommendations for local bars and restaurants.everyrg
The house is nice and big and fit the two families comfortably. The area is pretty great and super walking friendly to a lot of great eats and bars.
Everything was provided for us when we got there, and the transition worked seamlessly even though we (5 of us) got in at different times. The neighborhood is upscale; the neighbors might get a little cranky and could potentially blame you for things, for instance we got blamed for throwing bottlecaps onto their townhouses. They might know that Rick rents the place out and assume things they shouldn't be assuming. Everything in the townhouse was clean, and there's lots of good food and even a WalMart within walking distance. Well-stocked kitchen with pots, pans, dishware, etc. The roof is a nice place to sit and to grill meat (there's an awesome meat market about 10 minutes drive away). If only it weren't so bloody hot and humid in Dallas in June.
Rick's home was great, as always. The accommodations are great, the neighborhood is one of my favorites in the city, and with its proximity to McKinney Ave, the location can't be beat.
Rick is a great host. Location of property is amazing, in Uptown and Uber is a great way to get around for a reasonable price. Town is as described in the listing. The air mattress did not stay inflated, and the lower level AC appeared to have some problems. In all everything else was great. Rick even refunded me a portion of the money back for the inconvenience. I would absolutely stay in this property again.
