There is a new 60" K4 in the main living area. AT&T U-Verse is on each.

Some extras...a gated parking area if you choose. Otherwise super convenient parking in the front drive through. We have a fabulous alarm system. It's keyless so no worries about getting the key or losing it! We change it after each guest leaves for your security. We also have exterior video cameras monitoring who and what cars are going in and out and further protecting you during your stay! There are two thermostats- one on each side of the house. Also two extra heaters and fans in case one person is having different temperature needs then the room next door.
Business notes: We are open to a certain number and type of events but we MUST know in advance. Same goes for larger groups and pets. All must be discussed and approved in advance. This is to protect our home and also our very kind and patient neighbors! An event that we did not know about without owner approval in writing will result in event being ended immediately.
Best of all, this is a business for us AND we love it so I assure you will receive prompt responses- my response is 100% and average within 1 hour. We have lots of great reviews on this home and it's only been operating since late December. Our last home operated about two months and we had 5 star reviews there too! I love interacting with our guests and ensuring we provide a GREAT experience- whatever your specific needs are. My mantra is- JUST ASK! Can't promise we can make it happen but we will definitely try.
Thanks for your interest in our home!
I am a native Dallasite, a licensed therapist working part time in the Emergency Room at Children's Medical Center. I love my job but vacation rentals has been a fun and creative outlet for me and a chance for my husband and I to work together. My husband Joe has been opening and running bars for over 20 years- he opened his first bar a few years out of college in his early 20's. That establishment, Barley House, continues to operate, now located across the street from SMU. Joe is well known and respected in Dallas as one of the more talented and creative in that field and has opened and sold many well known Dallas bars over the past 20 years. We are VERY familiar with the dining/bar scene in Dallas so let us help you! We're making it our mission to learn the Arlington scene now! We can provide you with the name of our favorite fabulous Italian restaurant in Grapevine (Ferrari's) ...and also make sure you know there is a 24 hour Whataburger less than 5 minutes away.
Together Joe and I have 6 children and we recently moved to Southlake, Texas. We love it here and are continuing to enjoy our newfound passion for renovating houses and operating short term rentals. We hope to keep expanding this business as well as offering more services to our guests. We fell into this business completely randomly and found we had a good niche- homes that comfortably accommodated large groups. We are proud of our homes and hope you'll enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed crafting them.
My husband and I are both very flexible, easy going and pretty into our random newfound business. We look forward to providing an excellent vacation spot for your group.
Katy purchased this house in 2015
We choose this home because the location is AMAZING and the house had so much potential! It was owned by former All Star Juan Gonzalez but had fallen into disrepair. We have come to love renovations and this was a very fun project for us that continues to grow!
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!!! It is within 5-10 minutes of AT&T Stadium, Rangers Stadium, the Arlington Convention Center, Six Flags over Texas, Hurricane Harbor, a wildlife preserve with incredible kids play facilities, multiple golf courses, UT Arlington...
A little further out and you have Dallas, Fort Worth, Great Wolf Lodge, The Gaylord. Lego Land.
There are multiple golf courses within 20 minutes, tons of parks and outdoor play and athletic areas, running trails...
There are also TONS of restaurants, bars, stores, and shopping close by! This is a fun house previously owned by a professional baseball player. It had tons of potential and we worked hard to get it back to the shape it needed to be in! It was made for groups to have fun, enjoy the pool and hot tub, and all the surrounding amenities Arlington, Dallas and Fort Worth have to offer!
Not only four bedrooms but FOUR FULL bathrooms. We not only accommodate a large number of guests...we actually have beds for them (not air mattresses or futons). We believe our guests want to travel in the manner that we would. The open living area is great, the kitchen has all stainless steel appliances- double oven, dishwasher, microwave, a new electric cooktop, new refrigerator, new beverage/wine refrigerator, a wet bar in the huge open living area, a fireplace...plenty of open space for gathering and seating for dining. Three of the four bathrooms are completely brand new from tiles to toilets. The entire house has been repainted with new wood floors installed throughout. Brand new washer and dryer. Due to many skylights there is tons of natural light. To make it extra fun- there is a sparkling blue pool for the summer months and a hot tub to enjoy year round.
Excellent location for shopping restaurants and the stadium! Perfect space for entertaining- backyard was Awesome!! Owners were extremely accomadating and they have everything you would need.. I especially loved the bedding and bath linens - I would stay again!
The owners were wonderful to work with. Plenty of beds and space to spread out. The pool and hot tub were great. I would definitely recommend this place!
I came down for a football game with a group of 6 guys. More than enough room and great neighborhood. If you are trying to relax or travel to Dallas or the other surrounding neighborhoods a perfect place. A beautiful home and i def recommend to stay here if you are coming down for a game. The owner answered all my questions in a timely manner.
This property fit our family perfectly! There was something for everyone!
This house was amazing. The pictures do not do this house justice. The owners were amazing during this entire process and answers any questions I had in a timely manner. If you're looking into this place book it, you will not be disappointed.
We really enjoyed our stay in this property. The location was amazing. We love old quiet neighborhoods full of big trees. My husband went for a run daily and felt really comfortable outside because of the tree's shade and calm neighborhood. We had a Whole Foods close by and Six Flags. The house was well equipped and very clean. The light and space was cozy and welcoming. The best thing was the pool! We felt at home and enjoyed a relaxed and peaceful vacation. Thank you Katy for all your attention so we could make the best of it.
We are within 5 Minutes of all the biggest attractions in Arlington, including At&T Stadium (Cowboys!), Rangers Stadium, Six Flags over Texas and Hurricane Harbor. We are also right by UT Arlington and the Arlington Convention Center. We are just a few blocks from the River Legacy Wildlife Center and surrounded by golf courses. You won't find much of a better location!
There are great restaurants and shopping within 5-10 minutes. A little further out and you are in very close proximity to Dallas, Fort Worth, Grapevine, Southlake, and Colleyville! There is SO MUCH to do here. If you have any special interests just ask and we'll check it out for you!
|Cleaning Fee||£159 + Tax|
If you would like to use the hot tub there is an additional fee of $150 for heating. Please let me know 48 hours in advance of your stay. I can add to your on-line quote or you can pay separately before or at arrival.
Pets are also a $150 additional fee for extra cleaning.
Events are allowed but MUST be discussed and approved in advance. There will be an additional fee for extra cleaning and may require damage protection insurance, refundable damage deposit, or both. We also may require security, valet, or a housekeeper present at the event to ensure things run smoothly. We do have access to TABC licensed bartenders, servers, caterers, personal chefs, valet, security, housekeepers, drivers...just ask and we can make it happen!
Our payment policy is strict. Due to this home serving large groups most of our groups book many months in advance. Therefore, any reservation on the books is stopping other potential guests from booking. Your 25% initial deposit is refundable only if the reservation is cancelled 30 days prior to your check-in date, and if the property is able to re-booked for that weekend at same or greater price. A $150 cancelation fee will be charged. 30 days prior to check-in no monies paid are refundable, so please be sure of your stay, and we highly encourage our guests to purchase travel insurance!
Although I have payment terms specified I am really fairly flexible, particularly if the booking is several months out, and if you let me know I can break it up into three payments.
I do not require damage protection but you can purchase at a very reasonable rate through this site as well as cancellation insurance.
Please let us know if you have any special requests and we will do our best to accommodate. We aim to please and we want you to come back!
