About this listing
My wife Georgia, our son Henry and I would be excited to welcome you into our home. You'll have a private room and bathroom and use of common areas. The McKinney square, with live music, food, shops and bars is walkable, and access to DFW is easy.
This is your bedroom. Placed in the front of house, you have lots of light and a view toward the front porch and side street. The bed is a queen temperpedic - very comfortable.
You'll have your own full bathroom, closet, and queen-sized Tempurpedic bed and bamboo pillows. The bedroom has two sunny windows that allow you to see the porch and front yard.
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.
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.
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.
No smoking in the house, but outside is fine.
My wife and I live in McKinney. We just had our first son, Henry, in January 2015. Georgia'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.
Our newest love is of course Henry, our baby boy. We already traveled Colorado and Houston with him, and there is certainly more to come. He's met many of our AirBnB guests.
AirBnB has become central to travel for Georgia and me. We've stayed in Chicago, Charleston, Brooklyn, Rome, Florence, Orvieto, Puerto Rico, and Colombia through AirBnB. We've also been able to meet tons of incredible people from all over the US and the world by hosting guests. We've loved it all.
