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.
Friendly, tree lined residential neighborhood inside a fantastic city. You can walk to everything - bars, restaurants, shopping, bus stop, etc.
The DART bus stop is on the corner of our block and takes you right downtown or to the train stations. Uber and Lyft are both very popular options. The DART rail goes from DFW Airport to downtown. We are a short bus ride or cab ride from there.
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. :)
