Hera House has the ambiance of a European B&B. This upstairs suite with private entry is one block from popular Lower Greenville Ave. Especially recommended for guests with allergies & guests who want a peaceful sanctuary with many walkable amenities. LGBT & gay friendly.

The space

Originally built as a boarding house in 1925, Hera House is the home of its 3rd generation owners, who live downstairs. Guest accommodations are a private upstairs suite and bath with private entrance accessible by passcode. Hardwood floors, high ceilings, full-sized tub and glass doorknobs are among the vintage charms you'll enjoy in this space that has been updated for modernity without obscuring its warm, vintage authenticity.

Hera House is a hybrid of vintage and modern styling with a touch of designer funk.

Bedroom has a brand new solid mahogany queen-size platform bed with new foam mattress and low-allergen pillows (no down feathers). Luggage rack. Cedar lined closet holds the extra blankets, hangars and empty shelves entirely for your use. Living room/work station has comfy chairs, table, desk. Both rooms are sunlit and have plentiful windows that open. Private bath with full-size tub, a window that opens and dimmer switch lighting. WiFi. Small fridge, electric kettle, microwave, coffee maker and complimentary Seattle's Best coffee.

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. and heater (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.

Guest access

Upstairs is your dedicated, entirely closed-off space that is a duplex-style dwelling. The owners' residence is downstairs, so we'll always be available to help when needed. You have your own entrance with electronic keypad lock.

Interaction with guests

We live downstairs, often work from home and are accessible in person as well as by phone or text. 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.

Other things to note

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. I can loan you one if sharing the driveway doesn't work out.

Business Guests ::
Hera House is a great place to stay if you want to conduct small meetings while you're in Dallas. Your space includes a room dedicated as a work room/consultation room/sitting room. Ideal for therapists and other one-on-one business transactions. Note: No chemicals or wet materials. No makeup artists.

Dia was an amazing host! She made sure to check up on us throughout our stay while still respecting our privacy. The airbnb is in a GREAT location with just one block away from Yelp-approved bars (thank you, Dia for recommending Truck Yard!!) and a cheap Uber ride to downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum, etc. Definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful stay at Hera House. Dia and and Jill were incredibly communicative, friendly and helpful before, during and after our stay. The house is clean and charming and the bedroom was comfortable and afforded excellent privacy. The neighborhood is beautiful and centrally located. Hera House is in a great spot; you can literally walk just a few blocks over to enjoy the bars, restaurants and grocery stores in Lower Greenville area. A great house with great hosts in a great location!

The Hera House is a gem in Lower Greenville. Walkable to plenty of restaurants ands grocery stores, but super quiet and relaxing. On street parking was also safe and easy. This was my second stay at Dia's and it was wonderful. The reading light is perfect and the coffee was a pleasant bonus. The fridge was stocked with plenty of cold water, which was much appreciated in the June heat of Dallas. I highly recommend the Hera House and Dia's warm hospitality.

The location is perfect and Dia was very attentive. It is located extremely close to downtown and is walking distance to great food, bars and Trader Joes. Parking is available as well which was a plus for me.

The Hera House is a welcoming, private, and beautiful space. It's especially great if you're a creative soul. Dia was an amazing host who made my boyfriend and me feel welcomed and taken care of. She is easy to communicate with, friendly and very thoughtful of her guests. Meeting her was one of the highlights of my trip :) The space is in the upstairs of a beautiful, older, well-taken-care-of home. It is private, yet you're within walking distance of many restaurants, bars, and even Trader Joe's. There was a coffee maker and microwave available to use -- which I was especially thankful for since I failed to note that there wasn't a kitchen space. I highly recommend the Hera House!
