My wife Georgia and I would be excited to welcome you into our home. You'll have a private room and bathroom and access to our common areas. The McKinney square, with live music, food, shops and bars is walkable, and access to all of DFW is easy.

Your host, Ryan

The Space

We just moved in, so check our reviews from our previous house to get a better idea of what our guests think about staying with us.

You'll have your own full bathroom, closet, and queen-sized tempurpedic bed. The bedroom has two sunny windows that allow you to see the porch and front yard. If you're bringing a third guest, we have a futon that folds out to provide more sleeping space.

Guest Access

We'll share our kitchen and living spaces with you, as well as our porch (my favorite place to be when the weather is right). When you wake up, you'll have a French press and ground coffee available for you to enjoy. WiFi is available to all guests for free. We have plenty of room for parking around the house.

Interaction with Guests

Georgia and I have loved getting to know many of our guests and enjoy visiting as time allows. However, we're happy to give our guests as much privacy as they prefer.

The Neighborhood

McKinney is an old community increasingly surrounded by the Dallas sprawl. Fortunately, its historic charm has been maintained. You'll see lots of early twentieth century homes. I've been told its the porch capital of the United States. Everyone has at least one - our house has two!

Within walking distance, you'll find the McKinney Square, a resurrected town center that is full of restaurants, bars, live music and plenty of shopping. It takes my wife and me about 5 minutes to walk there. We're happy to share our favorite spots with you - pizza, burgers, clothing and jewelry stores, beer, steaks, French cuisine, antiques, and of course, Mexican food are all within a 10 minute walk! There are plenty of chain restaurants and fast food within a short drive. We're a three minute drive from HWY 75.

Getting around

Public transportation is unfortunately nonexistent in McKinney. However, we are walking distance from the square and everything it offers. Also, we don't mind lending our bikes out.

  • This was my first experience with airbnb and won't be my last. My hosts were excellent - thoughtful and helpful and I really felt comfortable and at home. Everything went smoothly and to plan. I chose McKinney because I wanted an authentic Texan neighbourhood and town square and it was all that and more. Georgia's recommendations for food were delicious and being able to walk off the meal back to their house on the beautiful tree-lined streets, listening to cicadas, looking at the beautiful porches - Ryan told me McKinney is known as the porch capital of America - will be a great memory of my short time in Texas.

  • This was my first AirBnB experience, and I hope to use it often in the future. I can say that if my future hosts are as awesome as Ryan’s family I may never use a hotel again.
    Ryan’s family was more than I could have hoped for. I actually did not meet Ryan but his family was an awesome proxy.
    I learned that one of the greatest aspects of the AirBnB experience is the awesome people you get to meet along the way.
    I highly recommend staying with the Miller Family at the “Cozy Bungalow near McKinney Square”

  • Bittersweet stay this time. We're finally moving into our house in McKinney, but that means no more airbnb stays with Ryan and Georgia. Don't hesitate to book with them. Can't give enough positive comments!

  • Brought my wife to stay for a night in McKinney. We had a great time. She loved Ryan and Georgia's house and had a wonderful nights sleep. She was sad to leave so early. Ryan and Georgia were amazing hosts, as usual.

  • Fourth stay for me here, and as always, a great experience. Georgia and Ryan have made my transition to Texas enjoyable.

  • Home away from home. Another great stay.

  • Yet again, another great stay with Ryan and Georgia! Couldn't ask for more. My only fear is that the cozy bungalow is setting too high of a benchmark. My other airbnb stays, with other hosts, are going to be hard up to match this one......

  • First time AIRBNBer here!!! Georgia and Ryan were awesome hosts! They're laid back and seem willing to either leave you be, or hang out and have a great conversation if their time permits. Room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable, no complaints at all. I will actually be booking again with them very soon.

  • My wife and I stayed here last Friday night and we really enjoyed our visit. It was in a quiet neighborhood 0.5 miles away from the McKinney downtown square, a 12-minute stroll. We had a comfortable, quiet room at the front of the house, with a sitting area and kitchen outside of our room door. There were plenty of books to peruse from where the Millers had traveled, and the house had an open layout. Overall, while our stay was short, it was very comfortable and hospitable, and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

About
My wife and I live in McKinney. She's a 4th grade teacher, and I work at a local marina on Lake Lewisville. We like traveling, listening to old records, sitting on the porch, being outside and meeting new people. We particularly love Latin America and have both spent some time living down there and spent our most recent trip down south backpacking through Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia.
