We're a young couple who enjoy hosting travelers in our stylish, clean private bedroom & bathroom. It comfortably fits two and has easy access to lots of local attractions (including White Rock Lake) and public transportation.

The Space

This is a comfy, clean private bedroom in a pet-free, renovated three-bedroom house with attached private full bathroom (shower, toilet, sink, plenty of fluffy towels) in a quiet Dallas neighborhood close to downtown Dallas (about eight miles) and within walking distance of beautiful White Rock Lake. Newly renovated kitchen is available for your use. Can access downtown (or elsewhere in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including both airports) via public transportation (see below for more on this). Shopping, grocery stores, several coffee joints and restaurants within walking distance. Satellite television in room, and WiFi available in house. Bed is a daybed with a trundle (two twin-sized beds with 450-thread count sheets & several different pillows for you to choose from). Maximum number of guests staying at one time is two (this is based on number of beds and size of room). Parking is available in front of our house (which is on a quiet street). We are two friendly people who treat our guests like friends we just haven't met yet!

**Please note to prospective renters: Please have at least *some* information on your AirBnB profile, i.e., a photo and basic details, before requesting to stay at my house. Just as I'm sure you appreciate having information about me, I'd appreciate knowing a little bit about anyone who will be staying in our home. :) Thanks for your understanding!**

***If you're checking out on a weekday (Monday through Friday), you'll have to check out by 9 a.m. at the latest (so we can lock up and get to work), thank you! Weekend check-out is at 11 a.m.

***Public transportation options: The nearest rail station is Mockingbird Station, about three miles from our door. From Monday-Friday, there is a shuttle that can take you straight from our door to Mockingbird Station, where you can hop on a train (and once you're on a train, it takes about 15-20 min. to get downtown). Or there's a bus stop within walking distance (10 min) that will get you to Mockingbird Station as well (and one that goes directly downtown). Texas in general isn't easy to do without a car, but it can be done! Total trip from D/FW airport via public transportation to our house can take an hour to an hour and a half (there are a couple of transfers involved), but it's easy to do. Depending on our schedules, we're also happy to give renters rides to the train station or downtown -- we've done that several times!

Interaction with Guests

We have as much or as little interaction with our guests as they'd like:)

Getting around

Public transportation is very convenient. During the week, you can get a shuttle straight from our front door to the nearest rail station (Mockingbird Station). Other times, the bus is an easy a 10-minute walk from our door (and you can use the bus to get either straight downtown or to Mockingbird Station).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jennifer has a beautiful home that is perfectly suited for Airbnb travelers. It is conveniently located and they are great hosts to stay with. Everything was literally perfect.

    July 2014
  • Our overnight stop at Jennifer's was enjoyable. The room was clean and comfortable and it was great to have a private bathroom. We would definitely stay again!

    June 2014
  • This was my first occasion to go through airbnb. Jennifer's house and room are very nice. The neighborhood reminded me of my old neighborhood when I lived in Dallas a couple of lifetimes ago. I would surely avail myself again.

    June 2014
  • Wow -- this was a first-class experience all the way. Pleasant house situated in a pleasant neighborhood. That's good enough. But it gets better: the room is spotless! Squeaky clean! So is the attached, private bathroom. Jennifer is great to communicate with and she provides lots of info on how to enjoy Dallas. This is accommodation par excellence!

    June 2014
  • This was far from our first airbnb experience, but it was our first time staying in a room in someone else's home(all our other experiences have been private guest houses or apartments). But this was lovely. the room is very nice and really comfy. Jennifer had the trundle pulled out and made up for when we arrived so both my Husband and I would have a bed. The bathroom is really nice and has an amazing shower! We only spent one night here and didn't have much interaction with Jennifer and Stephen as were out a lot, but it was a really nice room and they seem like really great people!

    April 2014
  • My friend and I had a great stay at Jennifer's, she was kind and her place was immaculate and very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt safe. I would highly recommend staying here if you will be in Dallas!

    April 2014
  • I stayed with Jennifer for only one night as I was driving across the country to San Diego. The room and bathroom was beautiful. I especially loved the bathroom and it was so well design. (like HGTV) Lovely white towels and clean. Jennifer was very helpful about recommending restaurants to my next stop to Austin.

    March 2014
  • I stayed almost a full week with Jennifer and Stephen, a young and very convivial couple. The room and adjoining private bathroom/shower were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The house is located in a quite suburban Dallas neighborhood, with short access to White Rock Lake (makes for a good running place). I highly recommend J&S place, and look forward to going back again if my travels should take me to Dallas again.

  • Great experience staying with Jennifer and her husband, both treated me very kindly, very well mannered, and with trusty hospitality. We didn't have much time to share: I undestood they were busy, and they undestood that I wanted to devote time to my grandchildren, but still, the very few moments that we crossed words their mood was always friendly and very reliable. The room and private bathroom are the best of comfort and absolutely clean... I'd say bright!, with everything you may need to have a very good stay , even special details like shampoo, body lotions and the like. I needed to use their refrigerator and kitchen ware to make my breakfast, and I had everything I needed at hand. Everything around the house is neat and cute . The neighborhood is quiet and safe, close to a commercial area, and easy to connect to other areas in the city using public transportation. I must thank both Jennifer and Stephan for taking me as their guest.

    February 2014
  • The house, room and bathroom are goregous and have everything you could possibly need to be super comfortable. Jennifer and Stephen's place is in a nice tree-lined street in the Lakewood area, close to the lake park, buses and shops/dining.
