The space

The Abby Guest House is a private, fully furnished haven in the heart of Dallas, Texas, conveniently located in the popular M Streets - within walking distance to the nightlife, shops, and restaurants on Greenville Ave, Knox Henderson, Mockingbird Station and Uptown. The best part of Dallas to be in!

DART, the public transportation system in Dallas, is within walking distance. There is a DART bus stop on the corner of the block. The guest house is a great getaway for a single traveler or a couple who wants to walk to the Dallas nightlife from a quiet residential setting.

Formerly known as the Abby Brown Guest House, a recommended accommodation in the Lonely Planet Traveler's Guide.

There is a private entrance from the front of the main house to the guest house in the backyard, via a security gate.

The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking and eating and includes stove top, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator.

The bedroom features a very comfortable queen size bed and includes linens. Extra pillows and blankets are provided.

The living room couch converts to a very comfortable twin futon, and there is also a queen size inflatable mattress. A comfy thick foam topper, down comforter and a mattress pad are provided, along with extra pillows, sheets and blankets.

Smart TV includes Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, music and many other channels. Strong WIFI internet connection available as well as books, magazines, board games, maps, guidebooks, and menus of favorite restaurants. A laptop with a DVD player is also provided.

The guest house includes a large bathroom (shower only) and private toilet area. Extra towels and many toiletries are provided, including a hair dryer and curling irons. An iron and ironing board as well as a dryer rack are available as well.

Parking is free and readily available on the street in front of the house.

Dallas is a great place to visit! Spring and fall the weather can be very mild. Summers can be very hot. The temperature in the guest house is personally controlled with new AC/Heat units. The guest house is green and guests are asked to preserve electricity and turn them off when not in use.

The guest house is about a 20 minute drive to the new Cowboys stadium in Arlington. It is also very close to downtown, Fair Park and the Convention Center.

The guest house is comfortable for one or two people to stay in the bedroom where there is a queen bed. There is also a queen size inflatable mattress in the living room that can accommodate 1 or 2 more people for an additional fee.

Please keep in mind the owner works full time and may not be available to personally escort you in but they will leave a way for you to check yourselves in. If you require personal assistance please let them know in advance.

The guest house is a great place to stay for independent budget travelers who want to experience Dallas as a local, and walk to popular nightlife. It is not a hotel or B&B with a on site maid service. Guests are politely asked to respect the guest house, clean up after themselves, and be kind to the owners.

The calendar is kept up to date, so please check it for availability.

Guest access

Private guest cottage with all the amenities of home. Located in the back yard behind gated privacy fence.

Interaction with guests

We always love meeting our guests, but we also understand and respect privacy and schedules. We are occasionally in the backyard, and guests are welcome to say hello if they wish and have the time to do so. Texting is always welcome at anytime. We are happy to give recommendations on things to do, places to eat, etc. It is possible I will be traveling, but there will be a local contact if you need assistance.

Other things to note

A very friendly puppy named Poppy lives in the main house. She might try to bounce her way in, so please make sure to keep the doors closed. We are working on controlling our excitement. :)

Julie's place is perfect for two or three travelers. My mom and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. We were close to everything we wanted to do and there were some great restaurants in walking distance. Julie is an awesome host. She is great at offering tips on what to do and where to go. She also is very sweet and checked in on us through messages during our stay. We will definitely be back.

This place works fine if you need something close to everything and in a safe neighborhood. If you’re a lone, I wouldn’t suggest bringing much to carry to the cabin. It is a bit much to carry your belongings and let the electronic gate open each time you need to go to your car. If you’re staying here during a cool season, there should be no problem with the temperature inside. However, if it is a warm month, I would recommend getting there close to 3pm to have plenty of time to cool the place.

Response from Julie:
Guests are welcome to check in anytime after 3PM. If we know the arrival time, we can put the AC on if guests requests it. The electronic gate provides privacy and noise control from the street. It does require a person to open it using the remote. It's pretty easy to push the button. If a guest requires assistance, they simply need to ask. :)

Julie was very communicative before our trip and responsive when we had an issue at check-in. She's a great host. Great location and easy walk to the Greenville nightlife. Be aware- there is only one real bed in this small guest house. Really great for a 2 people but I would not recommend for any more people unless you're cool with sleeping on a couch or a mattress pad on the floor. Gets pretty cramped come sleep time.

Response from Julie:
We want our guests to enjoy themselves, and do everything we possibly can to insure they have a fabulous time. In exchange, we ask that guests read the information and look at the pictures before booking. If you want a 2 bedroom, then you need to book a 2 bedroom, not a 1 bedroom. It clearly states there is a queen bed in the bedroom, and a queen inflatable mattress with topper in the living room. The couch is also a twin/futon as pictured. Any questions should be asked before booking. Arriving confused and upset because you haven't looked at the information listed creates unneccesary discomfort for everyone.
