The Experience

I work from home most days (even before the pandemic) and I'm on the phone most of the day and/or answering the many emails that I receive. It's hard to break away from work and make meals for myself often resulting in me having my first meal of the day around 18:00. If you can prepare our meals, I'll split the cost with you. I do prefer vegetarian or vegan meals, but it's not an absolute. You'll have a lot of free time to enjoy Dallas! :)

Chris was a wonderful host, offering great cooking, expertise on the area, and many ideas on nearby towns to travel. This was my first experience and I was borderline concerned about the new situation, but didn't have any issues with the stay. Also the view from his place is incredible. Thanks Chris!!

I have learned so much with Chris, he is awesome and very smart. He REALLY knows Dallas, and whenever he has free time we were driving in his cool Mini around town. Definitely stay with Chris if: - You love traveling. - You like to meet new people. - You like Incubus. - You want to have an AMAZING time in Dallas.

Chris replied

I never met Miguel in person and he never stayed with me. We chatted, and he asked me to leave him a positive review, but I didn't feel comfortable doing so because I never met him.
