About Kathy Smith
After 20 year career in fashion and interior design in the Dallas, Houston and Shreveport areas, I bought this beautiful historic villa and began sharing it with visitors from across the world! I have been a SuperHost with Airbnb for 4 years, and wanted to extend my hospitality to the VRBO traveler, as I am one, myself!
Kathy Smith purchased this Villa in 2007

Great Villa Wit Antique Decor
This place is great fro large families! Kathy was great as a host.
The house was a perfect place to feel the richness and history of Shreveport. The older house was decorated beautifully, well maintained and comfortable in every sense. We'd stay here again without a doubt. Kathy was very accommodating and helpful.
Enough rooms for a large amount of people.
Spacious home in a quiet neighborhood centrally located
Kathy is a wonderful host, very responsive to my questions while booking the property and during our stay. The property is exactly as I anticipated from reading the description on VRBO and was perfect for my group of ten lifetime friends who converged on our hometown for a long-overdue reunion.
This is a great home for a family gathering, very spacious! Both the grounds and home are beautiful, will need to come back when better weather to enjoy the backyard. This is truly a 5 star experience, I only deducted 1 star on accuracy of listing - indicated cable TV and only internet TV available if you have apps such as Sling to access local and other TV stations. This was not really an issue for our stay, was able to watch the World Series via an app my son had but might be for others. Loved the old home charm!
A very cool find
My adult children and cousins and friends were in town for our wedding and we were fortunate enough to find this place to be available to accommodate some of them. Really wonderful house and decor. Everyone stayed there really enjoyed the environment. Kathy was very communicative and helpful. We will definitely try to book it again in the future.
Thank you so much for the kind review, Stanton. Your family was a delight to host. Best wishes for a beautiful life.
