OUTSTANDING FEATURES :: Originally built as a boarding house in 1925, Hera House has the ambiance of a European B&B. This upstairs 2-room suite (bedroom & sitting room/workstation) has a private entry and is one block from popular Lower Greenville Avenue. Especially recommended for guests with allergies & guests who want a peaceful sanctuary with many walkable amenities. LGBT friendly.
STYLE :: Hera House is a hybrid of vintage and modern styling with a touch of designer funk.
2-ROOM SUITE :: Bedroom has a brand new solid mahogany queen-size platform bed with new foam mattress and low-allergen pillows (no down feathers, no synthetics). Living room/work station has comfy chairs, table, desk. Both rooms are sunlit and have plentiful windows that open. Private bath. Small fridge, microwave, coffee pot and WiFi.
ALLERGY-FREE AMENITIES :: This house is especially recommended for people with allergies: wood floors, low VOC paint, scent-free cleaning products, 100% cotton linens, no pets.
Hera House is a house that breathes: rooms open off a main stairway with a ceiling fan. No central air, no dust-catching air ducts. Each room has its own A.C. (so you control the temperature).
We make a sincere effort to maintain a dust-free space, so same-day reservations aren't always possible. Of course, if this amenity isn't important to you, we will always consider requests for last-minute reservations.
INTERACTION WITH GUESTS :: We live downstairs in an area that is entirely separate from the guest quarters. Since we often work from home, we are accessible in person as well as by phone. If you need ideas for where to go or what to do in Dallas, we can help. We'd like you to feel that, if you need it, you have a friend in Dallas.
GUEST ACCESS :: Upstairs is your dedicated space and you have your own door with electronic keypad lock.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD :: Hera House is located on a quiet side street within 1.5 blocks’ access of the popular urban Dallas community known as Lower Greenville Avenue: cafés, coffee shop, restaurants, diner, bars, bicycle shop, Trader Joe’s, yoga studios and public transit. Vegetarian, Vegan and Paleo options are within a 2-block walk and a designer popsickle shop is just around the corner. There's a handy coin-operated laundromat 2.5 blocks away, if needed (with a great Thai restaurant next door to it).
Hera House is centrally located, 2.5 miles from downtown and minutes away from freeways & public transit headed in all directions. Southern Methodist University is 3.4 miles away.
GETTING AROUND :: Public transit is less than a block away and it will bring you to our light rail mass transit, DART – which is less than one mile away. DART will deliver you to extensive areas of the city, including DFW airport. The neighborhood is very walkable. Two and a half miles to the east is our town lake, White Rock Lake, which has eleven miles of bike and walk paths . Also nearby is Katy Trail, a 3.5 mile long walking trail.
ABOUT PARKING :: You're welcome to share our driveway overnight as long as you check with us to make sure our schedules align. Parking on the street is usually open during the day, but gets competitive in the evenings and on weekends. It's a Resident Only Parking district Wed–Sat so a parking tag is needed. We can loan you one if sharing the driveway doesn't work out.
HOUSE RULES :: To maintain our mellow atmosphere, we'd like to ask that you refrain from: smoking / bringing pets / having parties / burning candles or incense.
Because Hera House is an environment suitable for people with allergies, we request that you not use aerosol sprays or strongly scented products. (We might use a few drops of essential oil as an air freshener unless you ask us not to).
SIDELINE OPTIONS :: Ask about some of the sideline options for entertainment and self-care that we can arrange for you right here at Hera House.
AVAILABILITY :: On Fridays and Saturdays the minimum stay is 2 nights.
