My Labradoodles go out early in the morning and in the evening so you may not even get to meet them. They prefer to spend their time lounging on the sofa watching Dog TV unless it's a really nice day and I am working in the yard.

Melinda's apartment above the garage is an excellent place to stay when visiting OKC. It's located in a beautiful neighborhood in a central area of downtown, easy walking distance to many great restaurants. The private room and bath are very tastefully done, super clean and has everything you could ask for. Melinda and her husband are very gracious and accommodating; and her two pooches are lovable. i would highly recommended staying here if visiting OKC
Melinda and Dale made me so welcome, and were very responsive to texts and messages. When there was a leak Dale came and fixed it immediately and I wasn't inconvenienced in the slightest. They even drove me to the store one day, and helped me with my bags upon departing. The studio was very bright and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The water pressure in the shower is a bit feeble, but I appreciate hot water on demand, for energy conservation! I was warm and cozy all week. The neighborhood was gorgeous and an easy 25 minute walk to my work in the downtown area. There were a few restaurants within walking distance, but with a car one would easily have it made. Thank you Melinda and Dale!
Melinda was great. The garage apartment is in Mesta Park, a beautiful historic neighborhood full of wonderful houses and impressive mansions, many trees and parks, and on a walkable distance to upcoming midtown with some good restaurants and bars.
The apt is small, but nicely decorated, very cozy and (website hidden) is possible if creative, there is one electric burner + a microwave, and an oven.
Melinda was so sweet to buy a six-pack of Grolsch beer, brewed in the Netherlands, because she knew I am Dutch. Great, delicious surprise! She also had bought some magazines about Oklahoma City, knowing that I was starting a new job in this city. A very warm welcome!
Staying with Melinda and Dale was an absolute pleasure. They are very friendly and provide a homey atmosphere. I had a small problem late one evening (which turned out to be user error) and Dale came to help me figure it out right away.
The garage apartment is cozy, comfortable and clean. It feels secluded and private tucked back behind the main house and electronic gate, and is safe and quiet. It has a very comfortable bed, quality linens, excellent temperature control, a couple different options for cooking, and pretty much everything else I needed. The location is great for access to many hot spots in Oklahoma City in addition to every necessity – grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. – one could need, much of it within walking distance. I highly recommend staying here!
Special note: Melinda and Dale’s garage apartment is a great option for those who have animal allergies. I suffer terrible animal allergies and had zero problems here. The apartment is very clean and has hardwood flooring.
I stayed at Melinda's apartment for a second time because I enjoyed the first stay so much. The apartment and bed was as comfortable as they were before, Melinda and Dale were gracious hosts once again and there was much to see and do in the area--especially given the nature of the Holiday season. I was also happy to see the addition of a microwave oven for my busier days. Thank you.
I loved staying here. I spent a whole month in the garage apartment. It is a very cozy and clean space. It was also in a great neighborhood. Dale and Melinda were very kind and welcoming. I would definitely recommend staying here!
