    Excellent Rental in Great Location

    We were very happy with this property during our recent month-long stay in McKinney. Positive features include: great location (easy walk into town), quiet neighborhood, well-stocked kitchen, awesome screened-in porch and yard, off-street parking, (garage was offered to us), and large laundry room. Our hostess (Robbie) was very gracious and non-intrusive. Overall, we felt like we were able to just make ourselves at home. The only downside is that the WiFi signal is rather weak, which might be an issue for guests trying to do remote work or conduct video chat; if all you need to do is receive emails and occasionally download files it should be no problem. We hope to stay here again in the future!

    Lovely home in historic district

    We had a great stay at this home in McKinney. It was extremely clean and full of charm. The back porch and yard are perfect for relaxing; the photos really don't do it justice. The host lives in the front part of the house and is very friendly and sociable. She popped in several times during our stay, and we enjoyed talking to her about Scotland, where she's from! We would love to stay here again the next time we're in McKinney.

    Absolutely charming!

    Perfect getaway spot. Private bungalow setting with lovely back yard and safe parking. Kitchen was beautiful and well equipped for any level of cooking. Bedroom sunny and comfortable. The laundry room was a great plus! The bathroom offered a claw foot tub for hot bubble baths. Our favorite part was the screened in porch which looked out onto a lovely yard and provided us with hours of much relaxation and quiet time. Robbie was a sweetheart. She fixed us cookies as part of our welcome and was available for any question. Will stay there again!!

    Charming Get Away

    We had the best time at this charming little house. It was a great girls getaway for 2. We sipped wine on the amazing porch, shopped in Downtown McKinney, and ate at the amazing restaurants nearby. The owner checked on us several times to make sure we had everything we needed.
