About Karen Kyles

I am a retired respiratory therapist who is enjoying grandbabies and life. I enjoy reading, gardening and spending time with family and friends.

Why Karen Kyles chose Hot Springs Village

We come from the busy Dallas area and wanted a place to "land" and relax every once in a while. I have decorated this cottage in my own taste and have tried to make it feel "welcoming and comfortable" for our renters. I want you to have the same experience as we have when we are fortunate enough to visit. I wanted an affordable, kid and pet friendly place that everyone can enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

A benefit of our home is that we do not charge for an insurance policy like most other places. I wanted to make our home affordable to everyone without all of the extra costs and fees. I have property managers that are on call and willing to answer any questions or assist with any issues.

Everything you could ask for. Secluded. Screen porch. I've stayed many places in the village, and they have all been nice. This one is the best!

Small but Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a comfortable 5 night stay. Our only suggestions are to:

1) Get new alarm clocks as the ones in BOTH bedrooms could not keep the correct time

2) Change out bed in the 2nd bedroom which makes a strange 'plastic' sound every time you move on it

Other than these minor issues, we were pleased with the home which was conveniently located and quiet.

Cozy and Quite

  • 4 of 5

The home is cozy and quite. Everything needed was provided for a good stay. It was our first time in "The Village" so finding the cottage at night was a bit of a challenge. All-in-all, a very pleasant experience.

No as nice as expected.

  • 3 of 5

Strong moldy smell in garage which has to be passed through to get into house.

Poor detail work on floors and caulk cracks in baths, also poor detail work on recent repairs.

Beds not comfortable sounds like setting down on a mattress is corn shucks.

TV hard to work.

Otherwise, it was a cute house and could be a very pleasant place to stay.

Peaceful Setting

  • 4 of 5

Great place for those wanting to get away from the noise and be in a very peaceful setting. The house is nicely decorated and there is plenty of room. I will say if you want to be close to the Hot Springs activities, this may not be the best place. The house is inside a massive gated community. There are only 2 gates on opposite sides of the community for guests to use. It would be best to ensure the owner provides detailed instructions on how to get to one of the gates. You cannot rely on gps as it will take you to the closest gate which may be one that you cannot enter or exit. Every time we wanted to go somewhere near town it took us well over half an hour. I will say though if you are looking for a place to rest and relax that will not cost a fortune, this is perfect!
