Cozy condo in a great location
I very much enjoyed my stay here. This two bedroom condo has everything you need and then some (three blenders!). The bathrooms are great and the master has a rain fall shower head, which is always nice. The pool is nearby. Plenty of good food and shopping within 1.5 miles. Celestial Park nearby is worth going to for a walk.
One minor issue, was the smell of the home. It definitely has alot of synthetic fragrance everywhere. Plug-ins in the wall, glade sticks hidden in all the corners...not sure if it's covering something up but it was definitely noticeable and the fragrance smell could be a bit much when coming in and out. That can be easily rectified with an ozone machine or some other remedial measures.
That aside...I would stay there again!!
Hi Brett. Thanks for the nice review, it’s very kind of you. You are absolutely correct about the smell. I had to wash the curtains, and do extra measures to hide the fact that a previous guest was smoking probably weed in our condo. I must have done a good job with this if you could not smell that - only the candles - so I am glad and now I can cut back on the candles and the electric room scent.
Addison/North Dallas condo
I am very happy we stayed at this lovely 2 bedroom condo. The condo is very comfortable and in a great location.
Just Like Home
We stayed in this condo and enjoyed ourselves. Everything was well appointed and very comfortable. Thank you!
Thanks for your kind words. You guys were awesome people and we would love to have you back!
A fine two bedroom two bathroom condo with easy check-in located in Addison in far north Dallas. The garage opens into the kitchen which makes access simple. The location was perfect for us. A power failure knocked out the NEST thermostat which required a PIN number to reset. We didn't see the PIN anywhere and were leaving the next morning so we did not bother the owners.
Be aware that there is an extra cost for more than two adults. ($10/night). This wasn't stated anywhere on the listing - perhaps that could be added for future clients so there is no confusion.
In addition, there is also a $75 cleaning fee and a $30 administrative fee along with a $52 service fee. (The latter is likely VRBO cost.)
I expect the large deposit ($300) to be refunded completely and promptly. While this is five to ten times higher deposit than other properties I have rented, I honor the owner's choice here.
Thanks for your prompt feedback. Naturally you will get the entire safety deposit back just like all the guests who stayed with us. The $300 deposit is designed to filter out those local people who like to rent a condo for partying.
The 2+ extra guest fee is always shown before booking, Homeaway would never allow landlords to add fees after the booking was made. We only charge the displayed nightly fee, all the rest charged by Homeaway and we have no control over it. We are glad you had a comfy stay. You are welcomed back anytime.
Clean but lacking basics
I’ll start by saying this condo was very clean. However, I was disappointed in many things I consider to be basic. There were no paper towels or dish towels in the kitchen. When I inquired about this, the owner told me she wasn’t required to provide paper towels and I could “buy them anywhere for $1.00”. In the master bathroom there was one washcloth hanging on the towel bar (for two people). I found two hand towels in the closet, one of which went to the kitchen for use in there. The bath towels that were out for use were very thin and old. I found much nicer towels in the dresser drawer. The second bedroom bedding was too small for the bed, looked like full size on a queen bed. Very disappointing after the reviews I had read.
Thanks for taking the time to review our home. I felt that I need to respond to your review. We have a very well equipped home - way above average - just like other people mentioned in a ton of fantastic review on HomeAway and on the competitor site. (over 70 glowing reviews) We keep our kitchen towels in the kitchen cabinet drawer and vast amounts of extra towels in the master bedroom dresser drawer (as you have mentioned-you have found them) so you had the chance to swap towels as per your liking. Most of our towels are heavy duty towels, but some of them are average and you can switch them (as you did) and there are always some extra for you to use.
You and your guests (4 people total) used up 8-9 big bath towels in 2 nights (not sure why). So the only thing you did not have was a roll of paper towel in the kitchen. You have called me just to tell me there is no paper towel. I sincerely apologized and also told you that normally I would drop by and take care of it, but I had my family visiting from Germany and they just arrived on the day you checked in. I excused myself and mentioned that you can buy a roll in the nearby shop for a dollar. I am sad when people think they can get Hilton hotel quality sheets and service for the price per night that you have paid us. The 4 of you would have paid a lot more in even a two-star hotel, yet you have given us 2 stars review for not having paper towel. Normally we provide that, but on those days my family arrival and the happiness to see them took all my attention and time away from everything else. I believe that our spotlessly clean condo - that you agreed with and the well-equipped bedrooms & living room made up for the paper towel we have failed to replace.
Dallas Love Field airport is under 10 miles, 18 minutes away. DFW airport is 18 miles, 25 min away.
Addison or North Dallas is the name of the area our condo is located at. Just 2 min. drive from 635 and the Dallas North Tollway - these two major roads will take you anywhere you need to go.
The condo itself is in a quiet neighborhood with a lot of greenery and a creek right next to it. Super convenient that the one car garage is directly attached to the condo. You get out of your car and step into the kitchen. The 2 bedrooms and bathrooms are well separated from each other so you will have privacy in your own room.
It has a private, lovely balcony with a lot of sunshine. That is the only place you can smoke if you are a smoker.
Both bathrooms are nicely updated. There is plenty of truly hot water if that is what you like and the master shower will pamper you with a rainforest shower head - ideal if you are big or tall.
The kitchen is well equipped, so you can cook if you like. No grill, sorry guys!
Roku and 100+ HD channels are ready to entertain you in the living room. We have reliable high-speed internet as well.
We hope to see you in our condo!
