All you have to do is read through our reviews to see that PEOPLE LOVE THIS HOUSE! They say it just feels good to be there! Our home is not your typical vacation rental - we are executives who have become empty nesters, downsized and moved to the country - and left our beautiful home pretty much in tact. We have night stands and lamps for EVERY sleeping person and phone charging outlets at the night stands and in the living areas. We are detail minded! And because we also stay in vacation rentals - we know what YOU need and you will get it!
YOUR comfort and enjoyment is our goal. Due to the size of our typical group, we knew we couldn't just provide a pretty couch and chair for your comfort in the living areas. So we purchased 10 upholstered CHAIRS for the living room that is next to the kitchen and 11 upholstered seats in the game room. Guests love this! Think about this as you look at other rentals. Of course we have high speed WIFI and cable TV. There are three TVs in the house.
This home has 12 different beds in SIX private rooms that will sleep 17 comfortably! We also have electric air beds if some want to sleep alone. There is PLENTY of room in the 4400 square feet for you to spread out! Shoo the kids to the game room or music room while you cook and chat with everyone without kids under your feet! The game room has pool table, air hockey table, custom poker table, bar, and seating for 16!
For mapping purposes you can put Eastern Hills Country Club into your GPS. We are about 1/4 mile from there. We are about 20 minutes east of downtown Dallas off I-30. This puts the house 20 minutes to the convention center and 40 minutes to Arlington with the Cowboys and Rangers play.
We provide coffee - in both a regular pot and a Keurig - plus set ups to our guests - in addition to a kitchen stocked full of every dish and appliance you could need. We provide toilet paper, paper towels, dish washing needs, bath towels, and pool towels. Each bathroom has soap and shampoos as well as hair dryers. You are also encouraged to use condiments in the refrigerator and spices & oils in our cabinets. A washing machine (and detergent) is available if you want to wash clothes. Our pool has a variety of floats for you to use. And the game room has numerous games and puzzles! Our guests tell us that this is the BEST stocked rental they have EVER stayed in! All you need to bring is food!
We love kids! There is a pack & play, high chair, and kid tents for them to play in. There are numerous cards and board games provided along with crayons, etc. The study bedroom has many children's books that you can read to your grandchildren!
Although we have defined check in and check out times - we are very flexible (at no charge) on these times as long as the schedule permits.
The house is for the specific use as a family and/or friends gathering or business retreat. It is **NOT** a place to host a party for anyone beyond those staying in the house with you. If you anticipate a few locals joining you (as many of our prior guests have done) at the house you just need get approval before you book - just ask - we are friendly people - but we must protect our rental by keeping the neighbors happy! All people should be OVER THE AGE OF 29 unless they are part of the family.
This is a pet friendly property, but we need to know if you are bringing a pet. (Limit of two.) If you are highly allergic to pets, know that our house is cleaned weekly - so it's very clean and rarely do people bring pets - but if you've got anyone highly allergic to animals I wanted you to know.
The maximum number of cars at the house is six. If your group has more than that please let me know before you book so we can make a plan. Two of the cars may be placed in the garage and the others should be in the back driveways - where there is room for 3-5. Local guest who drop in are welcome to use the front circle driveway.
The pool is available April through October. There is no heater, but there is a large spa on the patio! Pool hours are 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Patio and spa hours are 6:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight. We ask that no one be on the patio during the night unless they need to do a quick smoke. Check in is 4:00 p.m. and check out is 11:00 a.m. (These times can be flexible!!) This is in a neighborhood much like yours and we must respect our neighbors by being very quiet after 11:00 p.m.
Please purchase trip insurance in case your plans change - it is calculated at 4.5% of the rental price and is offered in the check out process. If you cancel within 60 days of your reservation dates - there will be no refund because we have blocked off your dates from others. If we re-book your dates we will refund your money - but there are no guarantees that we can re-book your dates.

There are many public courses within 15 minutes of the house.
15 Minutes from Firewheel Golf Park – 63 Hole Public Course
“The Bridges Course, Est. 2001 has three different and unique nines: The Masters, The Champions and The Traditions - all three boast bent grass greens. The sculpted fairways are lined with oak and pecan trees.
The Lakes Course is the toughest 18 of all. Stretching 7,134 yards from the back tees, it is a tight, difficult test with carries over ten lakes and plenty of big-face bunkers.
The Old Course topography consists of slow moving streams winding throughout gently rolling terrain. Tree lined fairways, 65 strategically placed bunkers and heavily wooded areas makes this par 71 a challenge for all golfers.”
15 minutes to Buffalo Creek Golf Club – 18 Hole Public Course
“Designed around its natural terrain, Buffalo Creek has a contemporary classic design which belies an austere test. Annually ranked four stars by Golf Digest, the Tom Weiskopf/Jay Morrish design was developed by Charles Perry, who, from 1976 to 1985, was president and CEO of Jack Nicklaus' Golden Bear International. Ranked consistently in the top five courses in the Dallas area and top 10 in Texas, Buffalo Creek offers everything for the novice and the professional. Holes 6 and 16 have been rated as two of the toughest in the state by the Dallas Morning News.
