Nice, new, clean and relaxing townhome located 12 minutes from downtown. Centrally located, its perfectly accommodating if you are traveling on business and need a quiet retreat, or an alternative to a typical hotel stay.
Enjoy a tasteful private guest room on your own floor, with full bath and walk in closet. The private laundry room on the first floor is perfect for guests staying for a week or more. Complete use of kitchen, study and full bath on second floor. Television in guest room and living room. Always complimentary wifi and parking. There is no cable television in the home, but the guest room has a DVD player and a decent selection of movies. Also, Apple TV and NetFlix is available on the 2nd floor/living area television.
Relax and enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony or soak up the Texas sunshine on the nearby hiking and biking trails. White Rock Creek Trail is located walking distance away, at Valley View Park. This 7 mile biking/running trail takes you through some awesome views, all the way to White Rock Lake. For experienced bikers or runners, take the round trip tour from the White Rock Creek to the White Rock Lake Trail, around the lake and back again. It's 26 miles. Yep: a MARATHON!
There are 2 bicycles that are free for guests to use, if they wish to explore the nearby trail(s).
CURRENT SPECIAL (For guests who book a stay of 4 nights or more):
Enjoy a cultural and creatively prepared dinner as my guest. As a chef, the best way I can show my hospitality is through great food and great company. Let me cook a meal for you or show you the ropes on how to create something delicious in my Texas kitchen! (Dinner is usually on the first night of check-in).
PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING:
I'm the proud father of a beautiful 2 year old, Charli. She stays with me the 1st and 3rd weekends of every month. I left these days as "AVAILABLE" on my calendar for those who are don't mind the potential noise associated with a typical toddler. Just keep this in mind however, before making booking a stay on these days.
ALSO: it is advisable for guests to have a vehicle of some sort if staying, especially for more than a night or two. Public transportation in Dallas is relatively difficult to use/navigate, and nearby shopping/dining/shops are relatively far from walking distance.

Marcus is a fantastic host - and chef! His place is immaculate and exactly as portrayed by the pictures on Airbnb. I agree that the location is excellent however a car is recommended to get around. I would definitely book with Marcus when coming to Dallas.
What can I possibly say about this place and host that hasn't already been said? :-) The bed was super comfy and for any pillow snobs out there, guess what? you'll be glad to hear that Marcus has got you covered. I don't remember very well but I know there was a foam pillow, a medium firm one and a softer pillow...oh and I think I saw an extra pillow in the closet. There is a big selection of DVDs to watch and books to read. The room is nicely decorated and feels quite peaceful. Marcus is not only a gracious host but also a very approachable, friendly guy. Would definitely stay here again.
Faced with an unexpected last minute need for a few extra nights in Dallas over the holiday's I'm so glad I found this spot on AirBnB! Not only did Marcus cook an amazing dinner for us the first night of our stay he went above and beyond making us not only feel welcome but also comfortable with Dallas and the surrounding area.
He is an excellent host and you will not be disappointed in choosing to stay with him. I couldn't have been happier. If i find myself in Dallas again I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
My husband and I had a fabulous stay with Marcus. He is the consummate host and an amazing cook. We were fortunate to meet young Charli and also some of Marcus' friends. Marcus went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and also took us to a phone shop so we could organise US phones in his car which was a very generous thing to do for us. Just a note to prospective guests tho and that is u really need a car while staying here. We paid $30 to go downtown in a cab which we were fine with, but obviously that cost needed to be factored into our stay.
Overall, an awesome stay in a lovely clean and warm room.
Good luck with ur biz plan Marcus :)
We would both love to host u in Melbourne, Australia,
Marcus provided us with a very comfortable clean and comforting room.
His hospitality and service was exceptional.The stay with Marcus was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to the US.

Marcus’ condo was clean, tastefully decorated, and conveniently located for our needs.
We spent time with Marcus and a couple of his friends, and found them gracious, friendly and amazing human beings. Our trip would not have been nearly as enjoyable without these great people – including Marcus’ ever so cute little girl Charlie.
I would recommend this accommodation to anyone. What a wonderful experience.
Marc was an incredibly generous and welcoming host. The room was immaculate. And Dallas was a very interesting and city, shame I couldn't stay longer. Thanks Marc
Marc has a beautiful, clean, well-designed room extremely (cannot stress enough) conveniently located in Dallas. You can be on the interstate and headed to downtown in two minutes. My husband and I spent a weekend of coming and going so we didn't get to spend as much time with Marc as we might have liked but he's a great host and puts a lot of nice touches and thoughts into amenities. After a late Saturday night, we enjoyed lounging a bit on Sunday and choosing from his vast DVD collection. My husband also enjoyed an AM coffee and a copy of the Dalai Lama's Art of Happiness. So glad to have found Marc - a no-brainer the next time we have to book in Dallas.
Marc is a terrific host. I felt welcome the moment I entered this place. The rooms are perfectly clean, stylish, relaxing and truly comfortable (we rented the extended guest room as well).
We got to hang out a bit and he showed us around some great places in Dallas. We really had a great time with Marc, that's a clear 5-star-rating and highly recommended!
