I'm originally from Dallas but now live in Brooklyn (Crown Heights). I love using Airbnb for both travel and as a host at my apartment in Dallas.

Mikes place is perfect for a quick getaway to Dallas. Its in a super convenient location from the highways and very close to downtown and all the attractions Dallas has to offer. The apartment itself is as seen and described on air bnb. It was lovely and clean and was extremely spacious and had a super comfy bed. Parking was easy and could be found on the street right outside the front door. In all we had a brilliant weekend! Thanks to Mike!
We had such a great visit to Dallas! The apartment is super close to downtown and tons of great restaurants. Mike and the landlord were very accommodating and even recommended the Pawliday Inn Resort just down the street for our puppy! The three of us fit comfortably, except for the leaky air mattress, but Mike refunded part of our stay for the inconvenience. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.
Place was basic but clean, bed was comfortable and the shower was hot! Central a/c and heat are a nice touch in the south. Mike was very easy to get in touch with and helpful when needed. Everything was exactly as we expected.
We spent the weekend, and were within walking distance of our destinations (Deep Ellum, the amazing aquarium/zoo, and Gilley's). It's not the nicest part of downtown (it's still a city), but walking around at night wasn't a big deal because I was with my boyfriend. Might have been a little spooked to walk all the way home from Deep Ellum by myself at night, but there are cab services and such that make Dallas pretty easily navigated.
Excellent experience all the way around! The unit was clean, quiet, secure, and well worth the price of admission. Mike was very accessible and courteous. I would stay there again without a doubt.
Mike was a very responsive host, seldom more than a few minutes away via text/email and absolutely prepared/organized for all aspects of the stay. As a long term (3 weeks) stay the following comments are unique to that experience. The unit was very clean and in perfect functioning order; the weekly cleaning service prompt and thorough. In hindsight, I would have liked a television/couch given the length of stay but the wifi was strong and sufficed all needs to stay connected. The location left a bit to be desired in terms of immediate walking distance social activity but nothing that wasn't easily remedied with the occasional Uber Car/taxi and some public transit. Fair disclosure, after consideration, I chose not to rent a car. That's really the only decision I'd make differently next time as I'd gladly stay again. I definitely recommend this listing for an affordable long term solution for downtown Dallas.
Great stay at Mike's place.
We first struggled to find the key but Paul (Mike's friend) helped us very quickly.
You can't find better value in Dallas so close to downtown.
The area might seem a little bit rough first, but we stayed couple of nights and had no issues at all. We loved the free parking in front of the house: very easy to find a spot.
Thanks Mike! Great Host!!!
Mike's place was perfect for a short business trip. Very private, close to the freeway, and convenient. Mike and his landlord Paul were easy to communicate with and very accommodating. The bed was especially nice, like something you'd find in an expensive hotel.
Mike is very well organized, responds very quickly to messages, and it's clear that he has been doing this for a while. Even though he is managing the process remotely, I felt like he knew exactly what people have come to expect in a stay and he delivered it.
* Check-in and check-out process was quick, simple, and clearly communicated
* The place was very clean and well kept
* He even provided a small thing of shampoo/soap with the fresh towels (convenient, since I forgot to bring any)
The place itself is basic but nice, and it was easy enough to walk or take public transit wherever I needed to go.
I'd recommend it, and I'd stay there again if I head back down to Dallas.
Mike couldn't have been a more gracious host. The unit was very clean, comfortable, and light, with a full kitchen, comfortable bed, table, bathroom with shower, and fast internet. I sent Mike many texts and emails, asking about directions, local restaurants, mass transit, local recommendations, etc., and he answered each one graciously and thoroughly. I attended a conference at the Hyatt Regency about a 20 - 25 minute walk from the property. The first part of the walk is through some commercial areas (some of which are abandoned), close to the freeway, and pretty much deserted in the evening. If I was a single female, I would perhaps consider taking a cab, or mass transit (which stops very close to the property), though I never felt threatened, or in danger. A cab from the Hyatt cost about $7. The rest of the walk, by the Convention Center, City Hall, and Pioneer Cemetery, was very pleasant, and interesting. I looked forward to it. I highly recommend the property.
Mike was GREAT. This was my first time using Airbnb, and he made everything easy. He was even gracious enough to give me a partial refund when I asked (mid-stay) to check out a day early. The apartment is clean, bright and well appointed. He includes a really comprehensive binder of information about Dallas, which made me wish I had more time to explore. On that note, there are some great places within a short walking distance. Very happy I chose to stay here!
p.s. The bed is ridiculously comfortable.
Mike is a super nice guy whom it was a pleasure to host. He is polite, respectful, well-organized and of good company. I would be happy to have him over again!
Mike was an excellent house guest. He was very respectful and considerate of the space and other house inhabitants. He was very clear in his communication and followed through with arrival/ departure times. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else and rent to him again!
Mike was a great guest. He was extremely friendly and was a warm person to have around. I would definitely recommend him to anyone as a guest.
Mike was great! He came through for one night, and everyone who met him had a fun time talking and getting to know him. How rare to find such an open, generous, easy-going person. Two beers deep and we were old friends. All the best, Mike, come back and see us!
2nd time Mike has stayed with me. Great guy. Always welcome back.
Mikes a great guy. A real pro airbnb'r Pleasure having at my house.
It was really great having someone else from the Airbnb community stay, he was full of good advice and he was also fun to have around! All round good guest, highly recommend.
Mike was a very agreeable, kind and open guest.
Mike's a great guy who is well-read and can speak intelligently about any topic under the sun. He's also considerate and is the type of guy who is going to be quick to respond to any question or problem his guests may have. Consider yourself lucky to have Mike as a host!
