I think most of the other reviews on this page have covered this apartment well. It's in an excellent location and perfect for anyone looking for a clean, safe, and fully stocked place to stay in Dallas. You can walk to a large number of restaurants or stores and there's even more within just a short driving distance. The shower water pressure is great and the bed is comfortable. There's also a good amount of storage space and the internet/wifi is solid. The apartment itself is a little older than it looks in the photos, but it has been maintained very well.
The only negative I can think of is that the washer and dryer are outside (it's inside a shed next to the apartment), but it's not really that big of an issue. It's certainly not enough to detract from the rest of the positives.
Jon is a great host who is quick to fix any problems you might have. He was very helpful during our arrival and has always been available quickly if we had any questions.
If this unit is available during your trip, go for it. You won't regret it.
Location, location, location!!! Jon met me at the apartment to give me a tour and answer questions. The apartment was neat, clean and comfortable.
This is a fantastic location. Lots of shops, restaurants, parks and essentials like pharmacy and groceries within within walking distance--a rare thing in DFW. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The bed was wonderfully soft and cozy. And Jon was an excellent host and very accomodating when my daughters came down with the flu. Thanks for the stay!
Jon was very cordial and met us promptly when we arrived. He made sure that everything at the apartment was ready for us and gave us advice on parking. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay near SMU or the Park Cities. It is also only a 15 minute drive from Love Airport, super convenient.
Host was timely and pleasant. Neighborhood was fine. Apartment was fine--bed very comfy. Picture makes the apt seem more modern and not quite a college student place.
For my second time this year I had a great stay at Jons apartment. If I ever need anything Jon will help, or at least try his best. The apartment is spacious and roomy. Queen bed in the bedroom and a massive feather couch and love seat in the living room, extremely comfortable. Everything for cooking is also there. The neighbourhood, University Park, is one of the best and safest which is great. The apartment is around the corner from the university SMU and also from Snider Plaza. The plaza is extremely convenient. I did not have a car so everything I needed was in that plaza. Groceries, restaurants, walk in medical... Bottom line is Jons apartment provides comfortable, safe, and convenient living in the heart of one of Dallas' best areas. I hope to stay there again soon.
All the best Jon,
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Jon's apartment. The apartment has all of the amenities one needs for a lovely stay, it was extremely clean, and the mattress was unbelievably comfortable. Plus, the apartment is in a phenomenal location within walking distance of several shops and restaurants. (We recommend Fernando's if you'd like to try some amazing Mexican food.) Additionally, Jon was a wonderful host. He was extremely communicative, left several recommendations for places to visit during our stay, and was very accommodating--even when we had to change our travel plans unexpectedly. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Jon was a good communicator and we appreciated him meeting us at 10pm to check in. My family and I stayed here for five days, and I don't know why but I believed the place would house three guests. That was not the case. Only two people could comfortably stay here, but we decided to stay here anyway for convenience's sake.
As for the apartment, it is evidently older as the floorboards creak quite a bit. The photos are also flattering making it seem really bright, but maybe they were taken in Summer. The place next door was/is also being worked on, so expect all usual tradesmen noises in the morning.
The redeeming features was the water pressure, and the location. Being about 50 yards from a grocery store and a bunch of different restaurants in Snider Plaza is underrated. Also, it is about a mile of pleasant walking through the beautiful SMU campus to get to Lovers Lane DART station, which will quickly take you downtown. DART is great.
Overall, would I stay here again? Possibly, for the location, but definitely not with more than two people.
My husband and I were both very happy with our host Jon and his fine apartment. It was light filled and had everything that we needed.
On previous visits we've stayed in upscale downtown hotels and much preferred this quiet fully equipped place.
We were in Dallas for Thanksgiving with family and could not have found a more convenient location. Many fun places within walking distance.
We hope to stay there again.
Jon, was great, always prompt with responses, and since we had to extend several times due to house construction delays, that was critical. Place was as advertised, great location for SMU.
Jon was a polite and punctual guest when he came to stay in my little beach abode last week :) easy to communicate and coordinate with, and totally pleasant to be in touch with. He may come stay any time!
Jon is probably one of the nicest and considerate guests I've had.
As soon as you meet him, you can just tell that he is "good people".
Had good conversations with him, and would definitely love him to stay at my place again.
To any host thinking about having Jon stay with you.... You should definitely!!!! He kept the place tidy and clean, but most of all he is a good and nice guy. Cheers Jon!
I've known Jon for about three years, and he is the three Rs: reliable, responsible, and respectful. He always takes good care of things he borrows, and his apartment is in great shape whenever I visit. You won't regret staying at Jon's apartment or letting him stay at yours!
I went to college with Jon and know him to be a very kind and helpful person. He is respectful of others. Jon has traveled all over the world and enjoys meeting new people. If you host him and he hosts you, you won't be sorry!
