My family decided to take our Thanksgiving holiday to the lovely city of Dallas for a fun change of pace and new tradition. When I decided to locate a home as opposed to a hotel, I came across this perfect house! I immediately contacted the owner, who is such a class act might I add, and he responded promptly and was very professional. When I arrived at the home I was so pleased with what I saw in person. It is an amazing home that is very well appointed with all your needs and more--even the beds were PERFECTION -- and I am quite particular. It is located in a prime location of Dallas with everything you need within a 5 mile radius! I am so grateful for finding this beauty and look forward to many more trips! You will have no regrets with this choice. I have found my home away from home! Thank you Craig!

Thanksgiving 2014

  • 5 of 5

My family and I needed a large house to stay in while visiting relatives in Dallas, and we were lucky enough to find Craig, and his fantastic house. Craig is very easy to work with and goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable, and have everything that you may need.

The house itself is more than you could ever wish for. Simply beautiful, very well stocked, and located in a quiet, established neighborhood in the middle of Dallas.There is more than enough room for 8 people, and even extra room to get away from each other if you want to. Plus, this house is close to everything you may want to do or may need.

SMU and the Meadows Museum are less than 5 minutes away. The George Bush Presidential Library is 7 minutes away. Shopping is all around and within 5-10 minutes no matter what you need. Grocery stores, restaurants, and drug stores are also within 5-10 minutes. Downtown Dallas and Fair Park are just 15 minutes from the front door. And, if you fly into Love Field you are only 10 minutes from the house.

If you want a beautiful house that is near everything, this is it! Truly, a home away from home!

Thank you, Craig.

SMU Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family gathering for our son's graduation form SMU. The house is an easy walk to campus and is a great alternative to staying at a hotel when you plan to attend activities on the SMU campus. The four bedroom house has plenty of room for family and friend to gather. We used the backyard and pool area for a post graduation party. The ground were well maintained and provide a nice private place to gather. Craig, the owner went out of his way to make sure our stay would be special and that everything was ready upon our arrival. Friends of our suggested this house to us and we would recommend it to anyone who planes to attend activities on the SMU Campus or was looking for a alternative to a hotel to enjoy a gathering of friends or family.

Family Gathering Spot

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home between Christmas and New Year's because we had a large group of family coming to visit. We used to put everyone in hotels, but this is far better. It is in the best location for doing all sorts of activities. You can walk to SMU, the shopping center and the community pool (in the summer). The home is beautifully furnished and easily accommodates and enhances large gatherings. The owner was easy to work with.

Thanksgiving in Dallas

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to spend Thanksgiving 2012 in Dallas visiting our cousins and our aunt. We needed a "home base" to accommodate everyone and host Thanksgiving dinner. Craig's home provided the perfect setting for our holiday. The home was immaculate with a great kitchen (FOUR refrigerators) a spacious family room (with beautiful flat screen TV) and patio. Bedrooms are all clean and comfortable. Warm November weather enabled us to use the hot tub and spend plenty of time outside enjoying the upscale neighborhood of Highland Park. The central location was ideal for our annual family scavenger hunt, where we were able to take advantage of being uniquely located in a beautiful residential area that was also close to stores, restaurants and SMU. We had easy access to downtown where a number of us ran in the Turkey Trot. The nearby parks were perfect for the tennis players in our family. The fact that SMU had a home football game on Saturday was an added bonus. Craig was very accommodating throughout the rental process and followed through on everything he promised. I highly recommend his home as a great place to stay and will try to stay there the next time we visit Dallas.
