Melinda's apartment above the garage is an excellent place to stay when visiting OKC. It's located in a beautiful neighborhood in a central area of downtown, easy walking distance to many great restaurants. The private room and bath are very tastefully done, super clean and has everything you could ask for. Melinda and her husband are very gracious and accommodating; and her two pooches are lovable. i would highly recommended staying here if visiting OKC
Melinda and Dale made me so welcome, and were very responsive to texts and messages. When there was a leak Dale came and fixed it immediately and I wasn't inconvenienced in the slightest. They even drove me to the store one day, and helped me with my bags upon departing. The studio was very bright and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The water pressure in the shower is a bit feeble, but I appreciate hot water on demand, for energy conservation! I was warm and cozy all week. The neighborhood was gorgeous and an easy 25 minute walk to my work in the downtown area. There were a few restaurants within walking distance, but with a car one would easily have it made. Thank you Melinda and Dale!
Melinda was great. The garage apartment is in Mesta Park, a beautiful historic neighborhood full of wonderful houses and impressive mansions, many trees and parks, and on a walkable distance to upcoming midtown with some good restaurants and bars.
The apt is small, but nicely decorated, very cozy and (website hidden) is possible if creative, there is one electric burner + a microwave, and an oven.
Melinda was so sweet to buy a six-pack of Grolsch beer, brewed in the Netherlands, because she knew I am Dutch. Great, delicious surprise! She also had bought some magazines about Oklahoma City, knowing that I was starting a new job in this city. A very warm welcome!
Staying with Melinda and Dale was an absolute pleasure. They are very friendly and provide a homey atmosphere. I had a small problem late one evening (which turned out to be user error) and Dale came to help me figure it out right away.
The garage apartment is cozy, comfortable and clean. It feels secluded and private tucked back behind the main house and electronic gate, and is safe and quiet. It has a very comfortable bed, quality linens, excellent temperature control, a couple different options for cooking, and pretty much everything else I needed. The location is great for access to many hot spots in Oklahoma City in addition to every necessity – grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. – one could need, much of it within walking distance. I highly recommend staying here!
Special note: Melinda and Dale’s garage apartment is a great option for those who have animal allergies. I suffer terrible animal allergies and had zero problems here. The apartment is very clean and has hardwood flooring.
I stayed at Melinda's apartment for a second time because I enjoyed the first stay so much. The apartment and bed was as comfortable as they were before, Melinda and Dale were gracious hosts once again and there was much to see and do in the area--especially given the nature of the Holiday season. I was also happy to see the addition of a microwave oven for my busier days. Thank you.
Thanks Michael I have tried to add everything people have asked for like a microwave, skillet, mirror, etc. I was just worried about making the place to cluttered! Glad you enjoyed and hope to see you next time you are in town.
Perfect host who made it convenient for our guests. Hope to do it again
I loved staying here. I spent a whole month in the garage apartment. It is a very cozy and clean space. It was also in a great neighborhood. Dale and Melinda were very kind and welcoming. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Great place, great location, and great people. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in OKC. The neighborhood is the best possible (safe and beautiful) and is located next to Uptown, Midtown, and Downtown. If you are going to stay in OKC for two nights, two weeks, or two months, I would highly recommend staying with Melinda and Dale.
Our experience was fantastic! It was the first time we tried airbnb, and the hosts were most accommodating at what would typically have been a difficult time as we there for our 3 year old to have surgery. They even made him macaroni and cheese from scratch! I had peace of mind knowing that if the surgeon did not clear him to fly home the apartment had not been booked. It is a lovely property with plenty of amenities. The surroundings are beautiful. The neighborhood is beautiful, and several restaurants are within walking distance. The neighbors too were especially kind to us.
Melinda was a super guest! She left our Airstream clean and neat, which we always appreciate. Melinda is welcome back any time and we highly recommend her to all the other hosts out there!
Melinda was a pleasure to host! Everything went very smooth, she was great at communicating and left my place in great shape! She is welcome back anytime:)
Melinda was very responsive and accommodated our request for an early check out. She treated our home like her own and things were left clean and tidy. We look forward to hosting you again!
Melinda's Garage Apartment is in the most beautiful and convenient part of Oklahoma City. Trees and gardens make it the ideal location. You can walk to nearby shops, museums, galleries and restaurants, rent a bike, or simply relax in a nearby park.
I'm sure the apartment will meet all your needs - since Melinda is a travel agent and avid traveler she knows how guests are treated in all the best hotels.
Additionally, I am one of Melinda's yoga instructors and I happen to know she is a jewel. Treat her right and you will receive her warm, Oklahoma hospitality as well fabulous accommodations!
As a nearby AirBnB host myself, probably the most important aspect is having a place to go when renting your home. Melinda's beautifully restored garage apartment is my go to spot! Between the new wood floors, kitchen and bath, this is a very cozy and comfortable location that is set in OKC's most desired neighborhood, Heritage Hills. Aside from the very safe neighborhood you'll find you are walking distance to many restaurants, sporting events, parks--the perfect location for OKC Marathon, Arts Fest, anything that takes place downtown. The hosts are extremely friendly and knowledgeable of local attractions and the home even comes with 2 pretty awesome Labradoodles! I highly recommend!
Melinda is an awesome hostess and her dogs are the BEST! My husband and I actually lived in the garage apartment for 2 months while our house was being built. We could not have asked for a better situation...walking distance to Midtown, Downtown, and Automobile Alley; a bright, spacious apartment; and fantastic hosts.
