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.

This was my second stay with Julie. The house is cozy and private. It's in a great neighborhood and Julie is a great host.
Julie made us feel very much at home by her friendly and informative emails - needed because she wasn't going to be there when we were. The house was great. Private and quiet, yet part of a great neighbourhood. Lots of places to eat, drink and have coffee just a short walk away. The DART at Mockingbird Lane takes you into town for a day pass of $5. A bus will also take you from McMillan Ave to the DART station if you'd like to avoid the 25 minute walk in the heat. The house has everything you will need plus a great bed and an excellent shower. Julie has thought of everything to make a stay perfect. This was our first experience of an Airbnb, and it's guaranteed not to be our last.
Julie was very accommodating and the guest house was very inviting. I really enjoyed the neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again next time I am in Dallas! Thanks Julie!!:)
We really enjoyed our stay at Abby Guest House. The neighborhood felt safe and warm, with beautiful tree-lined streets. The house was cozy, with a good, comfortable mattress. Great location for things we wanted to do. Julie has a list of good restaurants close to the house. We particularly enjoyed Royal Thai. We did not get to meet Julie, but she was very quick to respond to questions. Would definitely stay here again.
The guest house was great. Great and quiet area. The guest house had a feeling of home. We will definitely come back again.
The house was cozy and delightful, in a beautiful neighborhood of classic old-fashioned bungalows, within easy walking distance to fun restaurants. Julie was a great host, quick to step in and help with whatever was needed. We definitely recommend it!
A five-star guest house experience! I was in Dallas on a short term research trip, and this was an ideal home away from home for the duration of my stay. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and impeccably well-kept; I looked forward to coming "home" every evening. Julie made it easy to check in and out and responded very quickly to messages (though I never actually met her in person). This is a fantastic space -- looking forward to staying here again!
