Maybe the coolest backhouse in the universe. Either that, or the coolest backhouse behind my house. Feels like your own treehouse. You will dig, promise. Over 900 feet of comfy contemporary in Lakewood, listed by Dallas Morning News as the #1 neighborhood in Dallas for... ahem... wealthy people. (They haven't asked for my W-2... yet. So stay with me before I get kicked out for not being wealthy enough!) AWESOME location: two blocks from White Rock Lake, the gem of Dallas. It's a mecca for runners, cyclists, walkers, nappers, W-2 checkers ("Ummm... we're going to have to ask you to leave..."), whatever. And just a short drive to newly-artsy downtown Dallas.
The apartment has great new non-discount store furniture, a REALLY comfortable queen size Beautyrest mattress and Calvin Klein bedding (because you have to have Calvin Klein bedding in order to live in Lakewood - they do weekly checks), 47" flat panel HD TV, DirecTV DVR and Blu-ray player and subwoofer, high-speed wireless, quiet central air conditioning, washer and dryer, iron and ironing board for you to press my shirts if you don't have anything to do, fully stocked kitchen, cool artwork, AND a garage with opener for your car and bike, or else for housing that red fox you caught at the lake. I've got you covered when it comes to amenities, including a white noise sleep enhancer and a dock for your iPhone. The street and neighbors are quiet, so sleep 'til noon if you want. If you rent long-term, Claudia, the world's greatest housekeeper, comes through every two weeks to keep things spiffy. Five minutes east of SMU and downtown Dallas, just a few miles from the restaurants and clubs of Lower Greenville and Deep Ellum, ten minutes to Uptown, about a ten minute walk to the bus line and some tasty Lakewood restaurants. Less than a mile to uber-groovy Whole Foods, and for your coffee fix there's a Starbucks a bit further. For a Starbucks that's not a Starbucks, check out Mudsmith on Greenville. You hipster...
Everyone who has stayed here has loved it, and you will too. Promise.

David was a fabulous host. The apartment was clean, the latest in
design, peaceful and quiet. I would gladly stay again if I have more
visits to Dallas.
David is a truly wonderful host and the apartment is fantastic, and in a great location, less that 15 minutes from everything in Dallas. Truly as advertised: "way cool." We had a wonderful time and would love to stay again if the place is available.
This was my third time staying at Way Cool by the Lake and is starting to feel like a home away from home. This place is amazing and David is great and responds really fast on any of your needs; Directions, Restuarants etc.
The "home" that David provided, was way beyond our expectations. It was the perfect place to stay while we visited Dallas. Spacious and decorated with great taste. It was equal in caliber to any 4 star hotel. You can't go wrong with a stay at the lake house. Oh! and did I mention David's a gracious host,easy going ,generous with information about local city sights. Who could possibly want for more. We hopefully will stay again, while we search for our own place in Dallas.
This was the first time we had used AirBnB as guests as we host our own BnB and I have to say the experience could not have been better. David's apartment is in a lovely neighbourhood, it has every mod-con you could wish for and David is a brilliant host. He really did think of everything from kindly dropping us at a concert and later picking us up to leaving us magazines on our departure day so we had something to read on the plane home. We even went out for a great meal with him and later to a bar for a few drinks which was super fun. The apartment itself is stunning and extremely well equipped with a private garage, great TV with loads of channels, a huge fridge/freezer, awesome shower, AC, fast wifi and lovely furniture. When we arrived the fridge was already stocked with breakfast (and beers which were great after a long journey!) David left really useful local info on places to go and places to eat. We tried a number of his suggestions and they were all great. Overall the apartment was excellent value for money and I would highly recommend staying here.
This place is amazing inside and out! I have shown pictures of this place to everyone I know. LOL
Because David's listing is thorough and 100% accurate, I won't rewrite anything from it.
This place is classy, comfortable, and feels like home immediately. No Westin, Hampton, Ritz, Four Seasons or boutique hotel comes close. The price is right, as is the location. In terms of hospitality quality, hotels are just amatuer compared to this place. It's not a fair competition.
David has a disarming, welcoming personality and makes concierges in DT Dallas look like posers. He's known Dallas well for 15 years.
Stay here if you have standards, taste, and/or common sense. He lives close to the city lights, but you don't have to use a valet each night.
This is all understated so as to be believable. But this place is...get ready...UNBELIEVABLE! Colloquial translations: wicked awesome, super chill, just wonderful, pretty great (eh?), muy bien, unglaublich große, incroyablement grand, 信じられないほど素晴らしい, 令人難以置信的偉大!
Under 100 bucks for a brand new, swanky modern pad with everything you'd ever need? That's just good business.
I can't say enough about David and "Way-Cool by the lake"
This place is AWESOME! Very clean and well maintained, easily mistaken for a brand new place. As far as David goes, good luck finding a better host. Definetly someone I will keep in contact with.
Where do I start?!
David's apartment is beautiful and he is the perfect host. I'd say he's set a new standard for us!
We've stayed at several Airbnb properties, and David's place has become a favorite (ok, THE favorite!).
It was immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, and very functional. Fluffy towels and upscale linens, a wonderful, hot shower, and a beautiful neighborhood. We were not familiar with the Dallas area, and David printed out some places to eat and things to go see. The neighborhood is really nice and reminds us of our neighborhood in Tampa. It is quiet and safe.
David is just a wonderful host, and we would recommend his apartment, hands down! When we are in the Dallas area we will definitely stay here again, and we really hope to see David again soon!
THANK YOU, David!
David was genuinely friendly and anticipated everything a guest could want or need and more. The recently completely renovated spacious bright luxury apartment includes every bell and whistle and is impeccably decorated, quiet, and private. We drove and walked around the shaded neighborhood admiring the architecturally significant well maintained older homes, the newly built contemporary masterpieces and the fantastic landscaping. Strolling near White Rock Lake we visited with dog-walkers and glanced at passing cyclers and joggers. Even though we visit Dallas often we just wanted to stay longer this time. This is absolutely the best value imaginable. Location, comfort, convenience, ambiance, this "Way-Cool" apartment" has it all. And to top it off we had a host that thought of everything, down to providing needed quarters for parking at a recommended restaurant. Thanks David for making our introduction to Airbnb so memorable and enjoyable.
