A few days prior to moving to Dallas for a three-month job, and still with no planned place to stay, I decided that Carlos’ AirBnB would be the easiest option. It appeared spacious, comfortable, and conveniently located near major highways but away from the congestion downtown. I’m not always so lucky, but my procrastinating nature paid off this time. I can’t imagine a better place for extended stay in the Dallas area.
Carlos was wonderful. He was accommodating and communicative, with apparent attention for details. He was respectful of my privacy but always available if I needed something. One time, for example, when I asked about receiving an Amazon package, Carlos put aside what he was doing to bring me a freshly cut mailbox key.
The apartment itself is great. Carlos keeps it stocked with cleaning supplies which means that maintenance is easy for long-term occupants. The washer/dryer are top quality. There’s even a Dyson Ball vacuum. The shower has great water pressure and the hot water never runs out. The apartment’s walls are thick and the neighbors quiet. The bed is very comfortable. There is a huge walk-in closet with iron and ironing board. The kitchen is modern with granite countertops and a stainless steel refrigerator/sink/dishwasher. There's a blender and toaster.
The living room is a fine place to hang out; it’s big enough for entertaining friends and for doing yoga in the mornings. The Wi-Fi is fast and reliable (clocked at 55-75 mbps). The TV connects to Netflix, YouTube, etc. (and cable as well). There’s a small second-floor balcony that opens from the living room.
The other folks in the gated apartment complex were lovely throughout my stay. There are plenty of places nearby to eat. Three grocery stores within walking distance, a gym and an excellent dry-cleaner across the street.
Everything in the apartment functioned flawlessly save for one time when the A/C suddenly quit. In that instance Carlos immediately sent a professional to fix it even though it was very late at night.
Bottom line: Quality accommodation and generous host make this an obvious choice.
