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.

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.
Marie went above and beyond as a host. We had come off a 13 hour flight and were welcomed with a basket of snacks in the kitchen and a bottle of wine in the fridge. She was lovely to meet and made sure everything we needed was there. The house was perfectly comfortable for my roommate and I, and Marie even set out some Christmas decorations as she knew we could not be home for the holidays! I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to any traveller looking for a real home away from home.
Marie's place was perfect, exactly what we needed for a short stay in Dallas. It was well appointed with great, comfortable beds and close to everything we needed, like groceries and restaurants. Transport downtown was easy, with buses running frequently during the week and ubers costing less than $10 to the convention center (where we were attending an event). An Uber to love field airport was also super cheap. Highly recommend this little cottage. Oh and Marie was lovely and it was so nice to meet her.
Marie's place is amazing. It's in a fantastic neighborhood, within walking distance to adorable shops and great places to eat. Marie had a welcome basket for me, and the house was full of anything I could have needed during my stay. The beds are comfortable, and the whole place is cozy and just feels like home. Highly recommend this to anybody visiting Dallas!

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.
