It can be a challenge trying to figure out where to stay in a city as sprawling as the Big D with sporting arenas, glitzy entertainment districts and emerging arts scenes – not to mention its museums, parks and shopping malls. Travelers who stick around for a few days or more may want to choose a suite, apartment, condo or townhome with living spaces and reliable amenities – many with outdoor pools and terraces for relaxing in the southern sunshine and perhaps lighting up the barbecue. Read on for the best vacation rentals in Dallas, Texas – bookable on Culture Trip.
Suites in this downtown Dallas high-rise range in size from studios to two bedrooms, and allow you to cook your own meals with full kitchens and dining tables. One meal you won’t have to worry about is breakfast – available each day in the lobby at no extra charge. Guest laundry is also available, should you need it. It’s also within walking distance to the daily Dallas Farmers Market, where you can pick up fresh seasonal produce. Back on-site is an indoor pool, fitness center and basketball court with padded walls. Those who want a cozy place to work can snag a sofa in the lobby next to the gas fireplace.
These one- and two-bedroom apartments put you within easy reach of Deep Ellum – a lively area of town, especially on weekends. Though decor and configurations vary per unit, contemporary furnishings with full kitchens, sofa beds, private washer/dryers and furnished balconies are on offer here. Take your pick between outdoor lounge areas – including a large pool and shared barbecue area, as well as a fitness center. Park for free and hit the streets to get to music venues, art galleries and breweries.
Close to the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, this Hyatt offers oodles of amenities that complement the one- and two-bedroom suites. Spacious grounds offer an outdoor pool, terrace with barbecues and a fitness center. In the morning, grab free breakfast items like pre-packaged sandwiches, fresh fruit and yogurt – while in the evening, cocktails and light bites are served in the bar. You can even use Hyatt’s grocery shopping service and have your kitchen stocked for you. Guest laundry is available here, too.
Located in the Dallas suburbs near upscale shopping malls like NorthPark Center and Galleria Dallas, this two-floor townhouse is great for couples – given its open-style bedroom on the second floor. On the first floor, there’s a living room and fireplace, a full kitchen and a furnished balcony where you can dine al fresco. There’s also a washer and dryer, free parking and an outdoor pool to enjoy.
Larger groups – up to six people – can spread out in this bright two-bedroom townhome with a sofa bed. The unit has all the comforts of home with a full kitchen and a stackable washer and dryer. Check out the complex’s outdoor seating areas and fire pits for nightcaps. Not only is the location within walking distance to restaurants – including top ethnic eateries – but it’s a short drive to nightlife in Deep Ellum. There’s also free parking and pets are allowed to come along.
This sleek three-bedroom, four-bathroom vacation home – on three levels – is located in the quiet residential neighborhood of Oak Lawn. Each bedroom has a private bathroom, while a living area has two sofa beds – so this is a great option for large groups. Digital locks provide easy self-check-ins, while a property manager is readily available by text for any questions. Keep in mind that parties are not allowed, but you can have fun at nearby upscale restaurants – either walking distance or a quick Lyft/Uber ride away.
Solo travelers and couples are well-suited for this contemporary one-bedroom unit. The bathroom comes with a soaking tub and double vanity sinks, and there’s a washer/dryer and furnished balcony. Save some time to relax at the outdoor pool with in-pool chaise lounge chairs for staying cool in the heat – while a fitness center has big windows with lots of space to stretch. Better yet, head outside and check out the walking, jogging and biking trails in Harry S Moss Park.
These bright, fully furnished apartments, each with individual decor and hardwood floors, come in either one- and two-bedroom sizes with full kitchens and stackable washer and dryers. The apartment complex has an outdoor pool and free parking. Park up and explore the pedestrian-friendly West Village with lots of shopping, dining and theaters – as well as pretty parks along Turtle Creek for some outdoor exercise.
The city of Plano is the home of this condo hotel – about 25 minutes from Dallas. Choose between bright studios all the way up to three-bedroom units with chic furnishings and serene color schemes. Guests love the large bathrooms and closets here – as well as the washers and dryers. Take advantage of on-site amenities, including stylish common areas, three swimming pools, impressive fitness facilities and a dog park. You’ll also be within walking distance of upscale shops, restaurants and bars.
Another Kasa property, this condo-hotel property is in northwest Dallas – a 10-minute drive from many Dallas attractions. Choose between one- and two-bedroom options with large kitchens and closets, as well as private balconies. The property offers lots of on-site amenities, such as a zen garden and fitness center with floor-to-ceiling windows – along with coffee and tea in the lobby. In the center of the property is an outdoor pool with a waterfall feature and barbecues, and several local eateries are in the vicinity.
