Who needs hallway noise? Crack-of-dawn maid service? $6 for a bag of peanuts? Spare yourself. Get more peace, more privacy, and more space. Arrive jet lagged and exhausted, but enter this haven of rest and enjoy true peace and comfort. My past guests agree that they left their worries behind at the door, and you will too. No doggie smell, shag carpet, or avocado appliances here.
FABULOUS SWIMMING POOL AND BACK YARD!
Feel free to jump into that huge pool any time of the day or night. Unlike a hotel, this is your yard, and the redwood privacy fence protects you from prying eyes. Swimsuits are optional. :-)
With winter approaching. even in Texas, we love the 12 foot brick, wood burning fireplace and raised hearth!
OPEN FLOOR PLAN
An open floor plan and Fung Shui design elements balance your energy and relax everyone who enters here. Once inside the home, the French doors to the patio, BBQ grill, and pool are straight ahead.
Outside, settle into the soft patio furniture, prop your feet up on a matching ottoman, and watch the Cardinals and Blue Jays feed and bathe within 15 feet of you. OR read under a ceiling fan and light. We have citronella torches everywhere so mosquitoes are not a problem for us.
This traditional Texas ranch is packed with amenities. No skimping here either. For instance, you get clean berber carpet, a clean, TRANE HVAC system with filter changed every two months, and a powerful, full-sized Hoover vacuum in the hall closet (In case you stay awhile.) Every room has a ceiling fan and a window, fresh paint, and uplifting decor.
The thing that makes our home unique is that it feels like a home. The intimate trifles of our lives are still happily displayed on the walls for you to enjoy as you linger here.
Oh, and of course we have FREE, WIRELESS WIFI in every room as well as Cable, Netflix and On Demand HBO.
THE KITCHEN AND BREAKFAST ROOM
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances including LG refrigerator with ice maker in the French doors, Italian tile flooring, and practically every appliance and culinary tool you could want including two juicers, Prepare your meals using stainless steel waterless cookware, serve it with Oneida silverware and serving pieces and full sets of matching dishes We even have a Keurig coffee maker!
The breakfast room has an antique oak table and chairs that you can configure for intimate candlelight dinners of 2 or a party for 8. Throw your linens into a Maytag washer and dryer in the adjoining laundry room.
A wood burning fireplace and raised brick hearth dominate a 22 SF den with Thomasville leather chairs and a Findley sectional sofa. Two cathedral skylights tower above the room for extra light. When you are ready for Direct TV, you have over 100 channels. Feel free to indulge in a movie. Just like a hotel, we charge only $2 USD for each one you watch and deduct that from the deposit.
The spacious library boasts books of every kind, a comfy Ethan Allen arm chair, lots of natural light, and a home office setup with huge Ethan Allen desk and printer/scanner. Feel free to use the games and puzzles hidden on lower shelves.
BEDROOMS AND BATHS
Down the bedroom hallway, 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms offer you flexible sleep options in queen (2), full, and twin configurations.
The master suite is about 14 x 14 SF and features a queen-sized bed with a real Tempur-Pedic mattress. (I am such a bed snob.) That is the most expensive mattress available and with good reason. Cover it with our high-end linens, and you will sleep like a baby.
The bath has a brand new Italian tile and tumbled stone shower and the coolest sunken tub with a ledge where you can sit candles, incense, and an iPod to enhance your restful soak. Spread your toiletries over six feet of well-lit counter space with double sinks. Store your clothes and luggage in the his-and-her walk in closet.
Guest Rooms have Tempur-pedic or Sealy mattresses in excellent condition with foam pads, great linens, and blackout curtains/shades.
CLEAN AND SAFE
Just like a hotel, we welcome guests from all over the world. With that, comes bugs. Bed bugs. UNLIKE HOTELS, we have gone the extra step to encase every mattress, box spring, and pillow in bed-bug-proof covers. THEN we treat every two months for all kinds of pests and steam clean the carpet as needed.
Plano consistently ranks as one of America's safest cities. Still, we take extra steps to ensure your safety. We rekey the house and change the code on the garage door opener often. When we accept a guest, we ask for a copy of ID and a local emergency contact number. All this, to keep you safe.
This is our home, we live here when we don't have guests, so cleanliness and safety mean everything to us too!
The garage and driveway are hidden in the back of the property, through the laundry room. In Texas, most neighborhoods feature alleys so that you park your cars behind the house and enter through the garage. In addition, you can easily park another four cars at the curb in front, and all that parking is free!
The neighborhood is extremely quiet with a fire station, shopping, and restaurants of all kinds half mile away. Plano has strict animal control laws, so that adds to the peace and safety. You will not be awakened by barking or loud neighbors.
We accept payment via PayPal because YOU do not need an account to send money, and it is free to YOU. We accept 60% non-refundable down payment and the final payment of 40% two weeks ahead of your arrival date.
See you in Plano!
You can drive to downtown Dallas in 25-30 minutes or over to Legacy Park in about 15 minutes by bus or car. More likely you will want to drive to Frisco, Allen, McKinney, or West Plano.

There is lots to do in Dallas and the sun will be shining for all of it.
