The setting for this stay is lovely - a great patio overlooking the little lake - perfect for evening drinks. The view over the second lake with the fountain is just a joy. Very quiet, in a good residential area. David is a charming host and has thought of just about everything. The apartment is great but do bear in mind that this does not have an actual kitchen so no thinking of cooking up gourmet meals!! Another warning - the bed is SERIOUSLY comfortable so you will want to spend a long time snuggled up in it! There is a lovely swimming pool, with loungers beside it, to get your morning swim in before hitting the city. David has even thoughtfully provided mosquito spray, which will be needed, in the evenings in summer. What more could one want? Great value apartment and we thoroughly recommend it. Very many thanks to David...we will definitely be back.

Response from David:
I'm so glad you enjoyed your week here and enjoyed the pool, and backyard setting. We often pinch ourselves for being so lucky to enjoy the pool, the water views, and quiet nature. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Dallas!

David's place was fantastic: really just a wonderful experience. We had a beautiful weekend in Dallas. The pool area was perfect and we had unrestricted access to it. The unit was very comfortable for three guests and could easily work very well for two couples. The whole house and property in which everything was set was great. Everything was new and clean. David's instructions for arrival and departure were complete, clear, and accurate. He gave us a wonderful tour of the place and was in touch whenever we needed anything. Word to the wise: take his advice when it comes to things to do. We followed his suggestions for most dining and outings and we were never disappointed. The only problem is that we didn't have enough time in two nights! We'll have to get back there to spend longer in the city. Thanks very much for allowing us to use your place, David! As I said when we were there, I feel very fortunate that we were able to stay there when in Texas. I would unhesitatingly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a luxurious stay in Dallas.
David User ProfileDavid is a superhost.
Response from David:
Laura, thank you for your kind words and recognition of my hopes that each guest enjoy all that interests them and more. It's probably one of the reasons our guest book doesn't close well anymore because I'm always thinking of new places to see and visit. Do come back again. One visit to Dallas is never enough! Look forward to seeing you soon.

Think Ritz Carlton except better. At David's place, you have all the luxuries of a five star hotel but the additional luxury of exclusivity because you/your party is the only one staying there. This Airbnb is conveniently located in one of Dallas's most affluent and quiet neighborhoods: Lakewood. The rooms are conservatively decorated with high end furniture, including plantation shutters on the windows. The bed and pillows are super comfy. The bedding is top notch. High tread count cotton covers on everything. The bath is equally luxurious. The bath is equipped with a rain drop shower. The shampoo and conditioner are Aveda. There's plenty of towel and bathrobes for your use. I'll even rave about the sink, which is not your standard faucet spigot but one those gentle Zen flow faucet. David gives extra attention to the details in his place. There's even a small fridge stocked with bottled waters and cans of sparkling spring water. Keurig coffee maker with coffee and tea. Check. Breakfast bars. Check. Multiple plugs for your cellphone and laptop. Check. Perhaps the best part of this Airbnb is the backyard. David has a beautifully landscaped backyard with a patio that sits perfectly next to his backyard pond. He's also got a terraced pool just steps away. I never thought about Dallas as a place to vacation but after this visit to David's, I'll definitely be back.

Response from David:
Alfred, I'm so glad we met your expectations and more. Thank you so much for the kind words and conversations we had during brief visits. We look forward to seeing you on your next Dallas visit and offer both properties for your entire family to stay.

David User ProfileDavid is a superhost.

A world traveler describes me. I love to travel, seek adventure, and visit historical sites. I've been to all 50 States, Turkey, Greece, all through Europe, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and most of Mexico and Canada. Most of the time I like to stay in pensiones where the locals live to get a feel for the culture and customs. I own a rental vacation home and an apartment unit, and understand what it's like to create an environment that you would feel proud to rent yourself. In my spare time I volunteer for a few local charities. I enjoy listening to classical or latin guitar music, play indoor volleyball, enjoy hiking in the forest, and visiting ancient historical sites. I'm typically quiet, cordial, spiritual, very clean, love animals and children, and are respectful of the boundaries set by the host or guest. And the one thing that people don't know about me is I can wiggle my ears. Hahaha. I am the eternal optimist, outgoing, and find the best in all people when I practice the final form of love; forgiveness.
