About this listing
Enjoy everything that the DFW metroplex has to offer by staying in a beautiful Pool House in the heart of the Cultural District. I enjoy making your stay as comfortable as possible and especially love to host guests from other countries!
This comfy house is located in a historic, tree lined neighborhood known as the Cultural District because of its close proximity to world class museums and historical attractions.
If you do not have a car it is just a short walk to the bus line which will transport you to the museums, the West 7th Development ( great restaurants and shopping), Will Rogers Coliseum or straight into the heart of Downtown.
If you prefer to travel on foot or by bicycle all of this is within a 4 mile radius
As for the casa itself :
Once you are inside the gate that surrounds the entire property you are welcomed by a large grassy yard with plants from palm trees to rose bushes. First building on the right is my private and separate space where I will most likely be staying. If you continue walking – past the deep blue tiled swimming pool and outdoors sitting area you will arrive to your free standing one bedroom house which is located at the back of the property…
The front doors entering the living area are mostly glass - which afford you a fantastic view of the pool day or night. This feature, along with the windows along the east and west walls of the living area, let in the beautiful natural light .

Hi - I'm Shayna !
I love spending time in my hometown (and state)...
Texas is a very special place !
I have also enjoyed living for many years in Mexico and have had the privilege of traveling through Europe and South America.
By offering my home to you I hope to extend some of the warmth and hospitality that I have received throughout my travels.
As your hostess and a native "Fort Worthian" I am happy to offer you suggestions and recommendations for dining, shopping, sight seeing etc.
I am easily available by cell phone to answer any questions that may arise during your stay while still providing you with as much privacy as possible.
If I am in town I will be on the property as well but in my own separate building at the front of the property. We share an entrance but your casita is at the back of the property shielded by palm trees and rose bushes.
If you can pry yourself away from the relaxing atmosphere of the pool house you will find that you are located only minutes away from Downtown, The Stockyards, The Museum District, The Zoo ....Also, I-30 is a very easy access should you decide to take a day trip!
About the pool house :
The pool house is located in a quiet neighborhood with tree lined streets and makes the perfect getaway from noise and stress.
Inside there is plenty of natural light in the daytime and a relaxing lounge atmosphere outside by the pool day or night.
There is a lot of counter space in the kitchen if you like to cook or if you want to spread out your computer/ papers you can also use the round table in the living room.
I speak Spanish fluently and am currently learning Brazilian Portugese if that is helpful to you.
I always provide some type of breakfast item along with tea and coffee but for a small fee I would be happy to stock your fridge with all of your favorite foods and beverages.
Thanks for considering my listing for your getaway !
