We're a young(ish) couple who enjoy hosting travelers in our stylish, clean, private bedroom & bathroom. Includes access to our kitchen. Location has easy access to lots of local attractions (including White Rock Lake) and public transportation.
This is a comfy, clean private bedroom in a pet-free, renovated three-bedroom house with attached private full bathroom (shower, toilet, sink, plenty of fluffy towels) in a quiet Dallas neighborhood close to downtown Dallas (about eight miles) and within walking distance of beautiful White Rock Lake. Newly renovated kitchen is available for your use. Can access downtown (or elsewhere in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including both airports) via public transportation (see below for more on this). Shopping, grocery stores, several coffee joints and restaurants within walking distance. Satellite television in room -- now with Netflix! -- and WiFi available in house. Bed is a daybed with a trundle (two twin-sized beds with 450-thread count sheets & several different pillows for you to choose from). Maximum number of guests staying at one time is two, no exceptions (this is based on number of beds and size of room). Parking is available in front of our house (which is on a quiet street). We are two friendly people who treat our guests like friends we just haven't met yet!
**Please note to prospective renters: Please have at least *some* information on your AirBnB profile, i.e., a photo and basic details, before requesting to stay at my house. Just as I'm sure you appreciate having information about me, I'd appreciate knowing a little bit about anyone who will be staying in our home. :) Thanks for your understanding!**
***If you're checking out on a weekday (Monday-Friday, holidays included), you'll have to check out by 8:30 a.m. at the latest (so we can lock up and get to work on time -- we both work full-time jobs), thank you! Weekend check-out is at 11 a.m.
***Public transportation options: The nearest rail station is Mockingbird Station, about three miles from our door. From Monday-Friday, there is a shuttle that can take you straight from our door to Mockingbird Station, where you can hop on a train (and once you're on a train, it takes about 15-20 min. to get downtown). Or there's a bus stop within walking distance (10 min) that will get you to Mockingbird Station as well (and one that goes directly downtown). Texas in general isn't easy to do without a car, but it can be done! Total trip from D/FW airport via public transportation to our house takes about an hour, but it's easy to do. By car, DFW Airport is 25-45 minutes, depending on traffic. It takes about 15-20 minutes from our house to Love Field by car.
Depending on our schedules, we're also happy to give renters rides to the train station or downtown -- we've done that several times!
Zugang für Gäste
To keep prices low, we do not serve any meals, but guests are always welcome to use our large, shared kitchen (and all supplies/appliances), as well as our front living room for lounging. We do stay home and cook most nights. We're more than happy to share the kitchen with guests! Us cooking absolutely does not mean guests are not welcome to cook with us, before us or after us, or even if we're eating! We charge $5/load of laundry (includes detergent).
Interaktion mit Gästen
We have as much or as little interaction with our guests as they'd like:)
We do both have full-time jobs, and aren't around much during the day. Sometimes, we also have evening events to attend.

We're a 30-something married couple (no kids, no pets, both work full-time) with plenty of room in our single-family, three-bedroom house to accommodate budget-conscious travelers! We're big movie buffs and love to travel, and are partial to staying in hostels or AirBnB-type accommodations. We're also very willing to help anyone new to the Dallas area with sightseeing information or directions.
