Little Slice of England in Texas

This is for a whole house rental with use of pool, laundry, study and garage if needed. This time of year it is so cosy and the fireplace creates a wonderful ambiance. I spend most of the year in England so am open to long-term rental discussion. My home is very close to Texas Motor Speedway, Southlake Town Square, Grapevine Historic District, Gaylord Convention Center, Sabre, 15 minutes from DFW and close to both Dallas and Fort Worth. Unique, beautiful home that will wrap its arms around you.

Texas Lonestar Farmhouse

Yee-Haw…..this unique Cowboy home has a charm all its own. It has been renovated using Western décor, so it is fun, quirky and very Texas!

It’s perfect for the working executive with a large dedicated desk in the guest bedroom and an extra fold-out desk if needed.

The master bedroom has a cowboy theme, and the guest room honors America’s rich Native American Heritage. This property is infused with a “Home on the Ranch” chic vibe that makes visiting a truly Texas experience all to itself.

Texas Bluebonnet Farmhouse

Quirky Farmhouse Vibe. I had so much fun living in this home while I spent 6 months renovating it. I got to know the neighbors and enjoyed the close proximity to shops and restaurants. It is close to everything yet still has that quiet neighborhood feel. Friday night is my favorite….if you are outside you can hear the sound of the local high school brass band, which I began to look forward to. This home will “hug” you when you enter.

Woodstork Pond Cottage

Woodstork Pond Cottage is a unique, whimsical beach home set on a special little pond that we get to share with exquisite Florida seabirds. The cottage is tastefully decorated in a “Seaside Theme” to give you the proper beach vacation experience. It’s just a quick 6 min drive to the beach and only 2 mins from Old Englewood Village’s Dearborn Street with fun shops, wine bars, dining, festivals and it’s infamous Thursday Farmers Market.

Edale in the Bywaters

This gorgeous home is in a quiet, unique neighborhood surrounded by the three Rivers, beautiful Croxley Moor, and the Grand Union Canal.

It’s just a 5-minute drive to Watford Junction Station which has 15 min trains to London. There is a large supermarket and lovely pubs just a short walk along the canal. Plus Harry Potter World is just 15 minutes away. Rickmansworth Aquadrome, Cassiobury Park, Chorley Wood, The Grove, and the Harlequin Shopping Mall, are all just a few minutes away.

Sweet Home Chicago

Stylish 1 bedroom apartment in central Lakeview area. Just a few blocks from Lake Michigan and Lincoln Park and the Zoo! Huge living room area with bar, as well as separate kitchen/dining space. Private enclosed patio, on the top floor of historical condo building. In unit laundry, king size bed and much more that will make this space your new home away from home.

This is my darling goddaughter’s first Airbnb, I am so proud of her!

Lovely comfortable space to rest!

Susie is a wonderful host that I very much enjoyed conversing with. She pays careful attention to small details to ensure a great stay for her guests. The house is lovely, aesthetically pleasing with a relaxing atmosphere. Particularly recommend sitting outside on the enclosed patio and pool area in the evenings. The neighborhood is safe and upscale, a gem in DFW. Quite glad that I found the place and would certainly stay again. 5 stars all the way.


Wonderful few weeks stay!

The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood just a few minutes walk from Croxley. Easy and quick train ride into London from Croxley on the Met line. The home is exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Very clean and tidy throughout, well presented and homely. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with lovely views into the private garden. The light and airy conservatory is a great room to relax and unwind in.


Texas Bluebonnet Farmhouse

Susie was an amazing host!

She communicated everything with great detail, and periodically checked in throughout the weekend just to see if there’s anything I needed. The house was very quaint and cozy! If you love Texas, and I do, this made you feel right at home. The sheets on the bed to the pictures on the wall, and even to the rappers on the toilet tissue, everything was bluebonnets! Loved it!


Little Slice of England in Texas

This Airbnb is really, really special!

The decor is British and really fun with so much to look at and make you smile, BUT……. OMG our very favorite part was this amazing TV, it is EVERYTHING. It’s on an electronic riser and just magically pops up from the bottom of the bed! It’s like being in a private movie theatre in your bedroom! We had lots of plans, but my grandkids just wanted to stay in bed and watch this TV. Susie has lots of channels, so plenty to choose from.


Texas Lonestar Farmhouse

Susie is a great hostess!

Our stay at the Farmhouse was great Susie is a great hostess. She anticipated our needs and was very responsive. Working with her and with Alex, her handyman, was like working with an old friend. Her attention to detail is excellent and the decor is amazing—just like the pictures. We would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.


Woodstork Pond Cottage

If you’re considering booking, don’t hesitate!

Susie’s place was perfect and the amenities were unbeatable! She has everything you need to enjoy your time at the house and be set for a day at the beach. She also provided a high chair and pack n play for our little one which we really appreciated! It’s clear Susie truly cares about creating a great experience for her guests.

My name is Susie, I hail from London, England, but have properties in various other cities too. Creating beautiful, nurturing spaces for people to stay for a while and truly breathe is my happy place. I want my guests to take a step back from their life, regroup, relax, and feel totally like they are “at home” during their stay. When I walk into any of my homes, they HUG me, and from my reviews, I think my guests feel the same. I travel home to London often so it seems like a good idea to put my homes on Airbnb while I am gone rather than leave them empty. My love of creating a beautiful, nurturing space to nest is only exceeded by my passion for adventure, I am always off on some kind of exciting escapade. I am a Joy Mentor by profession and can work from anywhere which makes life flexible and great fun! I also facilitate “Bespoke Coaching Trips to Great Britain” for anyone who has a desire to travel on a personalized trip of our green and pleasant lands over here in the UK. Ask me about them if you are curious. I am very positive and joyful by nature, so my homes are filled with light and love. If you rent a room and I am there, you can hire me for “Joy Coaching” and add to your trip, we can talk about that too. Whether you are coming for work, a holiday or just to get away, I want my home to be a place where you can come to relax, heal and get back to a peaceful place of happiness in your world. Please let me know if you have any questions about my properties, I am happy to answer. Just be aware I never know where I will be in the world so as much as I try to answer immediately there may be a time difference. If I am sleeping I will get back to you as soon as I wake. Thank you for checking out my very special properties, there is magic in these homes.

Looking forward to meeting you!
