Our two bedroom, two bath, really cool house is perfectly situated within walking distance of the Lower Greenville Restaurant District and the new Henderson Restaurant District. Easy access to downtown and freeways. A home away from home.
This is a delightful home near the best of Dallas. With 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, your friends or your family will be able to relax within walking distance of great restaurants and grocery stores. A full kitchen lets you cook if you choose to stay home, or simply set out the wonderful food you can find at Trader Joes, Sprouts or Whole Foods.
There is a private patio to enjoy, and off street parking for you.
This is truly a home away from home. The house was build in the 1920's as a simple cottage. We have added to it to make it comfortable with central heat/air, internet and Uverse TV. This is a take your shoes off, put your feet up kind of place.
Interaction with Guests
We live just a few blocks away, so you can have your privacy and yet we will be available to greet you, and help you out in any way that we can.
What is not to love about this neighborhood! Situated between the Greenville Ave. restaurant district and the Henderson restaurant district, it it the perfect location for those of you who like a leisurely stroll for dinner. We are also less than 3 miles from downtown, The White Rock lake area, the Arts District, and the new George Bush Presidential library.
There are so many grocery stores, it is difficult to choose which to pick on any given day: Trader Joes, Sprouts, Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, Krogers, Fiesta, Green Grocers, Central Market to name a few. Plus we have specialty stores throughout the area.
This is a great walking neighborhood. And very easy to get to the major thoroughfares. Public transit is only 2 blocks away, and access to the DART train station is a bus ride away.
Other Things to Note
When you stay for a month or longer, we arrange housekeeping for you every two weeks.
If you plan to bring a dog, please let us know so that we can put out the welcome mat for your pup and arrange for extra cleaning time before the next guest.
No smoking please.
Please remove your shoes before lounging on the furniture.
If you bring your dogs, please clean up after them and use our pet covers for the furniture so that the next guest has a clean home.
We have a cleaning service, but appreciate guests who make it easier for them by tidying up after themselves.
Enjoy yourself and let us know what we can do to continue to make this a great experience for you.
I have been trying to think of what I could say more about Cottage in the City and the host, Marie. So, I am sure I am repeating what has been said; but when you come across something amazing, it is worth repeating. We chose this location and house to spend a week with our granddaughters ages 8 and 13. When we arrived, there indeed was a wonderful basket of treats seemingly designed especially for the expected guests. I personally enjoyed the bottle of wine.
Marie was readily available by text, email or phone (even if left only a message) to respond to any need. Unfortunately, our schedules didn't coincide so that I was unable to meet Marie face to face. I hope that a return visit will allow me that opportunity.
The Cottage in the City is just as the pictures depict: well furnished, beautifully decorated and well stocked for all your needs. Space is more than enough for 4 adult guests with two large bedrooms and large full baths in each bedroom. The kitchen is large and well-stocked with everything you will need. The living room area is a comfortable place to kick back and relax to watch TV, visit or just enjoy a quiet time. You have access to cable with many movie channels. The speed of the private internet is sufficient for your personal or business internet needs.
One of the best things about this cottage is its location! We had family to visit in Mesquite, South East Dallas, Plano and Garland. Not one was more than 20 minutes away. The Cottage is centrally located. A wide and excellent variety of restaurants, hair salons, quaint shops are within walking distance.
After the grandchildren went home, my husband and I had a beautiful weather day to walk around the area and enjoy the restaurants and shops. I hope to return again and use Cottage in the City as my go-to-place to stay, when visiting family in the area. Staying with family is always an acceptable choice; but, when you have a place where you can call "home," feel at home, relax and still visit family, now that is a perfect situation for a family visit.
Thank you, Airbnb, for your easy process for finding the perfect place to stay. Thank you, Marie, for being an awesome hostess and for providing us the perfect place to spend time with our family. We hope to return again someday!
Hello Kathleen, A large part of why I host with Airbnb is to be part of a community that shares experiences and offers a more home-like environment to guests. So to see that you enjoyed this visit so much is truly gratifying. I love being the "go-to-place" for you! We will have to meet on your next visit. And my husband just finished building a second deck outside the big bedroom, so you have more places to enjoy (or take a break from) the grandkids.
See you next time. Marie
My family stayed at Marie's wonderful cottage for five days while visiting our daughter. It was exactly as described, very clean and comfortable. The house was stocked with everything to make us feel right at home and had many extra touches to make us feel welcome! The basket of goodies waiting for us after a long drive was extremely thoughtful. Marie has provided shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispensers in the bathrooms, extra toothbrushes, lotion, q-tips and face wash cloths. She even had a bottle of wine in the refrigerator for us! The beds are very comfortable and the living area was just right for us to watch TV, talk and play games. Marie stopped by to say hello and gave us ideas of where to eat nearby. The neighboring Greenville area is all within easy walking distance with great restaurants, shops and a Trader Joe's. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will plan to stay again for our next trip to Dallas! Thank you, Marie!
The house is absolutely charming. Clean, well furnished with all the comforts of home. A very well stocked kitchen! Easy access to many different parts of the city. The neighborhood is amazing!! Lots of great food and bars. Marie was a wonderful host and very helpful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Cottage in the City is an excellent choice if you want to be centrally located in Dallas yet in a quiet neighborhood. Just one block away from a popular retail/restaurant/pub street (Henderson) and within walking distance of the lower Greenville Avenue restaurant/pub district, the location is very convenient. Although you will need a car to do almost anything in Dallas other than explore the many shops and restaurants within walking distance of this house you may be able to get by with only a taxi if you only have one or two destinations or meetings while there. The home itself is cozy, well supplied and well distributed with two bedrooms at opposite ends with ensuite bathrooms each. The kitchen has everything you need and more, including fresh milk and butter in the fridge and some goodies left in a care basket by Marie, a most excellent and kind host. The linens are clean and new, the beds are awesomely comfy, the TVs in both bedrooms and living room are all new flatscreens outfitted with ATT-Uverse seemingly unlimited channel offerings, and the WiFi works without fail throughout the house. This is an older house but it has been well cared for and well appointed. Central heat/air makes is comfy in all climes - which can turn on a dime in Dallas. The photos depict the house as it is, perhaps understating the reality as there is now a new gas range in the kitchen. Overall, this is an excellent choice.
Impressive service from the host! The place was clean, with ALL amenities including a cute welcome basket with nice munchies.
The property is real conveniently located in a vibrant neighborhood and close to one of Dallas main highway.
And it is so quiet!
I will definitely book it again!
Marie was very helpful and responsive to any needs that we had. She came by the cottage when we checked in, to meet us and see if we needed anything. She also left a basket of snacks in the kitchen along with milk in the refrigerator for us. The cottage was accurately described and very clean. It is very conveniently located to many things.
I am glad that you had a good stay, and got to experience Airbnb for the first time. You are right, it is a very different experience from a hotel since people are sharing their homes. Plus, you get a great taste of the neighborhood and the city. I hope you will see us next time you are in Dallas. Marie
This lovely home was exactly as described. Marie even provided us with a wonderful welcome basket of snacks, coffee & wine - what a treat! The artwork was a nice touch & the location was amazing. So close to restaurants & nightlife. Lastly, the bed was unbelievably comfortable! We travel to Dallas twice a year for work so we'll be back. I wholeheartedly recommend Marie as a host.

I have traveled around the world and love to meet new people. And yet, I am most happy when I am home with a good book or sitting around with friends. I think that is the reason I like the concept of Airbnb - enjoying that "home" feel even when traveling.
