As the other reviewers have said, Abby guest house is a comfortable little one bedroom cottage in a back yard, in the lovely tree-lined suburb of M Streets. It's great value for money and has a lounge room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and separate toilet. Being so close to Greenville Avenue, we ended up eating out most of the time rather than cooking but all of the utensils, crockery and pots were available. It was an easy 5 minute drive to Mockingbird DART Station, where there is heaps of free parking and it only cost $1.75 to get into the city (one way). There's also a Central Market close by which is handy for picking up supplies. My husband and I loved staying here while we were in Dallas and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap, comfortable, home away from home. Thanks to our host Julie for making us feel so welcome!

The best part of Dallas to be in! DART, the public transportation system in Dallas, is within walking distance. There is a bus stop on the corner of the block. The guest house is a great getaway for a single traveler or a couple who wants to walk to the Dallas nightlife from a quiet residential setting. There is a private entrance from the front of the main house to the guest house in the backyard, via a security gate. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking and eating and includes stove top, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator. The bedroom features a very comfortable queen size bed and includes linens. Extra pillows and blankets are provided. The television in the bedroom includes a library of DVDs and VHS tapes. There is a twin futon couch in the living room, and an inflatable queen mattress. Streaming TV includes premium movie, local cable and music channels. There is WIFI internet connection as well as books, magazines, board games, maps, guidebooks, and menus of favorite restaurants.

An iron and ironing board as well as a dryer rack are available as well. Parking is free and readily available on the street in front of the house. The best feature is a wonderful friendly old Great Dane named Hamish who's happy to say Howdy. Dallas is a great place to visit! Spring and fall the weather can be very mild. Summers can be very hot. The temperature in the guest house is personally controlled with AC units, fans and space heaters. The guest house is green and guests are asked to preserve electricity and turn them off when not in use. The guest house is about a 20 minute drive to the new Cowboys stadium in Arlington. It is also close to downtown, Fair Park and the Convention Center. The guest house is comfortable for one or two people to stay in the bedroom where there is a queen bed. There is also a queen size pull out sofa in the living room that can accommodate 1 or 2 more people for an additional fee. Please keep in mind the owners work full time jobs and may not be home to personally escort you in but they will leave a way for you to check yourselves in. If you require assistance let them know in advance. The guest house is a great place to stay for budget travelers who want to experience a hot spot in Dallas as a local. It is not a hotel or B&B with a maid service. Guests are politely asked to respect the guest house and clean up after themselves, or pay a $25 cleaning fee. ... more less
