About Michael Fisher

I am a college educated professional with degrees in physics, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering and an MBA. I design neural integrated prosthesis for those who have lost limbs due to war, disease or trauma. I find my work to be very rewarding and fulfilling.

I am a very easy going and rational person who strives for self-improvement on a daily basis. I try to balance work and play the best way that I can although either may become more prevalent at times. Family is very important to me. I love sci-fi, horror and action movies and books, 80s music, water sports such as swimming and jet skiing, oil painting, jazz and blues dinner clubs and traveling. I am a very adventurous person.

I am a dreamer who truly believes that the only way to fail is to fail to try.

Michael Fisher purchased this house in 2013

Why Michael Fisher chose Texas

This property is located in the Bear Creek subdivision where family comes first. There are plenty of nearby activities that would interest all ages ranging from golf to swim to walking/cycling trails.

What makes this house unique

Home is located in a new subdivision that is family orientated, quiet, safe and is about 25 minutes from downtown Dallas.

Our stay was truly a Home Away!

  • 5 of 5

First off, this house was gorgeous! It had a ton of amenities in a nice little quiet neighborhood. Myself and 6 other people stayed at the house everyone being able to sleep comfortably in there own bed.

Michael was very professional and greeted us when we first got there to ensure we were comfortable opperating all utilities in the house. Prior to our stay you are given a packet that has everything you could possibly think of in the house to answer any questions you may have. He also is very open to texts or phone calls whenever if there was ever a question about something.

We all felt very welcomed and at home at this location. From the couch you could sleep on to the incredible nice shower in the master bedroom, this home was truly a Home Away! We just wished we could have stayed longer to utilize the outdoor grill/pizza oven and the gym! It all looked amazing!

Very Nice House

  • 2 of 5

We found this house very nice and really enjoyed the movie room and the pool/outside area. However, I have NEVER stayed in any house, hotel, etc with so many RULES!!! Also, I was VERY appalled at the list of charges if things were not clean or for things that were broken. When you rent out a house AND charge a cleaning fee to begin with, how can you have a list of additional cleaning fees? It was ridiculous. I have NEVER been asked to wash sheets and put them back on the beds before I was to check out at 10AM AND when I am forced to pay a cleaning fee and the rental fee in the first place!! What am I paying to have cleaned if I AM REQUIRED TO DO ALL THE CLEANING AND LAUNDRY BEFORE I LEAVE???!!! Makes no sense to me. I have travelled all over the world and have stayed in many houses and hotels (we travel at least 4 times a year out of the country) and have never dealt with this. Also, I left the house very clean and although I did not do the laundry and put the sheets back on the bed, it has been a month and I have still not received my deposit back yet. Very nice house and we had a great time, but the rules and fees are ridiculous. If you don't want to pay people to come in and clean your home after you have rented it out, then maybe you shouldn't rent it out!!

Nice, quiet rental property with plenty of indoor & outdoor entertainment

  • 5 of 5

We had a group stay at this property for one night at the end of September and thoroughly enjoyed it. The pool and hot tub were great, as well as the indoor movie theatre. There was also a gym but that wasn't the focal point of our stay. The bunk bedrooms were very accommodating for our large group. The owner did a great job of accessorizing the patio area with cool lighting and a sound system. As for the movie room, it had an actual movie-type screen covering most of one of the walls, and the surround sound speaker system in that room was phenomenal as well as the cool lighting on the ceiling. The movie chairs were comfortable too. The house is located on a cul-de-sac which is nice for the peace and quiet.

First impressions, amazing! BUT save your money!

  • 1 of 5

Well, where do I start! The pool was dirty, the water in the hot tub was merky so that wasn't clean! When leaving the property, we cleaned. When vacuuming the carpet, it sounded like a tub of sand had been poured on the runners and the large rug in the lounge. We knew it wasn't us as we were hardly in the house. The owner turned up un announced to collect the mail and get the garbage bins in. I didn't mind but because of the poor communication, we wasn't told this would happen. We left early because we found the property eerie! The security cameras in the garden was a bit weird. I couldn't relax in my bikini as I felt I was being watched and after having 2 kids, im a bit self conscious! You have no control of the pool lights, the waterfall wasn't on at all, we wasn't told how to put it on, again, poor communication, the fountains came on as and when, again, lack of communication! We could not relax at all! After contacting Mr Fisher 4 times, through text (I have proof I sent it) email and through the company about the refundable deposit, it took 4 weeks for it to go in and then we had a very nasty email telling us it was a bit premature! That's just my opinion Happy cleaning and walking on egg shells!

Owner's Response: I am not usually one to have a knee jerk reaction to a review, but when a guest submits a review that is so outrageously false I have to set the record straight. After all the years that I have rented my property, I have never had a guest to try to scam and extort me for a free night. Some would ask for discounts, an early check in or and extremely late check in, but not a free night when they didn't meet the minimum stay requirement. I became suspicious that I may have problems with this guest when he wanted to stay an extra day and got upset when I could not accommodate him. He then stated, "A good review deserves an extra night!" After I explained to him that I had a guest scheduled to check in after him, he opted and paid to do a late check-out instead. After he checked out, I confirmed my suspicions that this was a scammer by I contracting other property owners/hosts that he rented from. I was shocked to find out that he has tried similar scams with some of them to varying degrees. Now, I try not to judge anyone prematurely, but it seems obvious that this guest has personality issues. I have always strived to provide great service to all my guests (even this one). Nearly every guest that I have hosted over the years have loved the property. I have even had dozens of repeat guests. But probability states that sooner or later some bad guest will arrive. It's just the nature of the business. I ALWAYS take before and after pictures to protect myself in rare cases of attempted fraud, extortion or damages. I additionally have the guests sign check-in sheets stating that they have toured the property and find everything to their satisfaction. He toured the property and signed the check-in sheet and noted that everything was ok. I will address the issues presented by the guest: 1. The pool was dirty - False, beside a few stray leaves in it the pool, the pool was absolutely clean. 2. The spa was "merky". Again false. I drain, sanitize and refill the spa after each guest. I find it strange that he would utilize a murky spa, break two of my jets, tear my spa cover and leave the spa running after he checked out with all types of debris (i.e., hair, paper and food) left in the water. 3. There were cameras in the garden - False. I don't have a garden. looks like he confused me with someone else or maybe he is paranoid. 4. He cleaned - False, he did not clean. He left trash all over the house. Hosts please be careful renting to this scammer.

We LOVE this place!

  • 5 of 5

Because this house is located only 25 minutes south of Dallas, we were far enough from the city to feel like we got to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all but close enough that everyone in our group (who lives all over the DFW area) could easily and quickly make it to this place. The house is very clean and very well kept. The backyard with pool, grotto, hot tub, hammock, SHADE, and outside kitchen could not be any better for a full day of swimming, eating and enjoying everyone's company. The kitchen provides plenty of space to keep and serve snacks/meals for our group of many kids and adults.

Because we are an organization that hosts an annual swim party every year, we don't need the house overnight. However, Michael is very accommodating and let's us book the house for 1/2 the day. This year was our second time to host our annual swim party at this wonderful private retreat. We hope to be back again next year and hope that this house will become the place we visit every year for our swim party.

On a more personal note...After visiting here for a second time, I texted the link and schedule to my family and said, "Let's get this place on the books! It's PERFECT for a family retreat. I call the master bedroom! And center recliner in the theater!" :)

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at this home. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen was well-equipped (including a Keurig which was a nice surprise!). The pool was such a great feature: the fountain area was perfect for our 4 year old to play in and there was plenty of space for a family to swim. My nephew loved the home theater and entertained himself with movies every night. Overall, a beautiful home, and Michael was so easy to rent from. If we return to the Dallas area, I would definitely stay here again!
