Cool Pool House / Cultural District

House - Entire home/apt · Hillcrest St, Fort Worth, TX 76107, United States

Enjoy everything that the DFW metroplex has to offer by staying in your own private 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!

The Space

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 in 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 lots of natural light .

I am usually on the property as well but stay in the completely separate building at the front of the property. When you are staying here you can count on having the outside patio/pergola area and swimming pool for yourself!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Shayna's place is as advertised! You won't be disappointed as it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's easy to find and even though we arrived at 11:00 PM we made it into the pool house without any trouble. Shayna has this place well stocked with utensils, appliances and even some food and drink items to get us going the next morning. My son and I stayed here for the NCAA Final Four and it was close to the AT&T Stadium so we weren't spending a lot of time going back and forth. We also took in the NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway as a bonus which was only 40 minutes away. We spent Sunday morning at the Stockyards that has some shopping and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

  • I stopped counting the times I spent in the Poolhouse. It remains the coolest place for me, so I return in short with my family.

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Shayna's pool house and were very much sad to leave. The pool house is decorated by someone who clearly has good taste and an artistic touch, along with having everything you could possibly require. The pool house is located in the best of town which is only minutes to the museums, and within 5-10 mins to downtown.

    It was a pleasure to deal with Shayna who was very quick to respond to messages through Airbnb - I'd definitely recommend staying at the pool house.

    Thanks again.

  • The house is awesome! Very clean and very cozy, and beautifully decorated! We had a great time!

    February 2014
  • My fourth and not the last time I am enjoying this nice place abd Shayna's hospitality.
    The bike is repaired, so next time can come.
    I will be back soon

  • We had a wonderful stay at the cool pool house. Shayna was an excellent host. She was flexible and accommodating about our late arrival. She was available and helpful with restaurant and activity suggestion when asked, yet respected our privacy and most of the timew e felt we were at our own private retreat.
    The house is spacious, clean and comfortable. It was too cold to swim in January, but the pool was lovely.

  • This time a bit too cold for the pool, but still fun to jump in ;-)
    Enjoying this place like my second home, therefore coming back soon.

  • The Cool Pool house lives up to its name. Shayna had treats for us when we arrived. She was turning on the pool lights just as we got there for our safety and enjoyment.. There were cold bottles of water waiting for thirsty travelers in the fridge.
    Her place is located close to everything we needed. We brought our tandem bike and rode around the neighborhood enjoying the eclectic vistas of Arlington Heights.
    She has put together a helpful notebook that we used often including near by restaurants ( we loved the Flying Fish) and their menus, brochures with museum hours ( visited the Modern, Cowgirl Hall of Fame, & the Sid Richardson).
    Her place is very clean and artfully appointed. Loved the collection of vintage Texas dinner plates in the kitchen.
    The porch is a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning. the colorful zinnias greeted us, Shayna placed some flowers in the bath and kitchen for our pleasure. The outdoor art, once again, gave treats to the eyes.
    We had a fast and furious mini vacation.
    Shayna was gracious and helpful, quick to reply to any and all of our communication.

  • This is a beautiful b&b, conveniently located and fabulously appointed. It is immaculate in appearance & is a complete house together with a swimming pool & barbecue equipped deck. Shayna met us upon arrival and introduced us to the facility. It is located in a quiet neighborhood almost secluded from the surroundings. This is a definite five star and will not disappoint. Anyone considering a hotel stay in Fort Worth should reconsider their plans whether it be for business or leisure. We will definitely be returning soon. Thanks.

    October 2013
  • We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and comfortable for our family. In addition to the pool, there is a park around the corner, perfect for our toddler!

    The house is conveniently located to food, stores, the downtown & convention center. My husband had a business meeting to attend & it was a breeze to commute.

    We felt "at home" at the Cool Pool House. Thanks Shayna!

Hi - I'm Shayna ! I love spending time in my hometown (and state) but have had the privilege of spending many years of my life traveling / living in Mexico, 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 I can be as hands on/off as you wish... If I am in town I will be on the property as well but in my own completely 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 ! When you are staying here you can count on having the outside patio, pergola area and swimming pool for yourself. I also have a nice gas grill if you want to cookout and a fire pit for winter nights. And 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 drive over to Arlington or Dallas for the day. I am easily available by cell phone to answer any questions that may arise and am happy to make restaurant/event recommendations. About the pool house : If you are seeking privacy and just want to relax 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 big round topped 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 items but for a small fee I will stock your fridge with all of your favorite foods and beverages. Thanks for considering my listing for your get away !
