3. California Cool in Oak Cliff
Are we on an episode of Selling Sunset? Because we’re feeling relaxed just looking at this exquisite property nestled in the Kessler Park area of Oak Cliff. Can you even with the virtual infinity edge pool? This property boasts endless appeal both inside and out and feels miles and miles from the hustle and bustle of downtown (despite being just a five-minute drive away).
4. Mid-Century Modern Marvel
The bad news: Your girls’ trip to Palm Springs was put on hold until it’s safer to travel. The good news: This mid-century modern masterpiece oozes cool and will allow you to enjoy the luxuries of a vacation without ever leaving Dallas (think: the house comes complete with a pool, a hot tub and an outdoor grill). Having friends or family fly in to visit? Make sure they make it a Southwest flight because this luxury rental is just minutes from Love Field.

Sometimes we all just need to escape the city but don’t necessarily have the time to get lost. Yah know? This home checks off all of the boxes with six bedrooms, four bathrooms and one acre of beautiful outdoor space to roam—great for family vacations. And when you are done floating in the pool and frolicking in the immaculately kept yard, the open floorplan inside makes for an ideal setting to cook all the food with loved ones and binge watch Netflix.
6. Say WHAAAAA? Warehouse in Downtown Dallas
This 1940s warehouse is located in the up-and-coming Cedars neighborhood of downtown Dallas and is truly exceptional. Accommodating up to 10 guests, this pimped out pad was renovated by The Bachelorette’s Season 13 couple Jojo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers and was also featured on CNBCs Cash Pad back in 2019. Extra-cool features include the pool table, a claw-foot tub and a selection of tasty snacks waiting for you upon arrival.
7. Sittin’ Pretty in Park Cities
Hello, high design near Highland Park. This townhouse is steps from the prestigious neighborhood known for mega mansions and pretty parks and a stay here will make you feel like a million bucks. Walk to Nonna, Whole Foods, and more at this urban beauty featuring everything you could want in a weekend stay or perhaps a little longer once you’ve fallen in love with its central location.
8. Unique in UP
“Hey … Jenni Kayne? It’s us, at PureWow! Yeah, um, sorry to bother you but we are pretty sure we have found the location of your next photoshoot. It’s a total V-I-B-E. K thx bye.” This private third story loft that’s located within walking distance to Snider Plaza has been renovated within a private home near Southern Methodist University and it is gorgeous. Don’t skip the claw foot tube for a super soak before or after a night out on the town.
9. Posh in Preston Hollow
This high fashion family home is ideal for any kind of renting situation, whether it’s your bestie visiting you from out of town or a very necessary staycation for yourself. Whoever chooses to make this their temporary home is sure to enjoy the great neighborhood walks, expansive yard and central location that this North Dallas abode allows. And while we aren’t encouraging parties during these COVID times, that light filled dining area is enough to make anyone start a brunch mood board on Pinterest.
10. Oak Lawn Leisure Pad
It’s the cozy fireplace that does it for us, but we’re also big fans of the central location, light-filled rooms (the house boasts 1,900 square-feet, NBD) and garden oasis. Whether you brew a fresh pot of coffee and curl up by the fire or decide to take it to the streets and walk to Mia’s for their world famous brisket tacos, you will definitely not regret staying in the heart of it all.
11. Downtown Dapper Dan
Looking for a room with a view? Feast your eyes on this beauty that includes a skyline, vista for under a hundred bucks a night. We are also really digging the exposed brick, modern kitchen and the fact that despite its small size, the owners thought to give guests a clutter free workspace. Basically it’s got absolutely everything that you need and nothing that you don’t.
12. Flyin’ High on Eagle Mountain Lake
OK, so this property is not technically located in Dallas proper, however, we couldn’t resist giving Fort Worth a little love. Especially this stunner that boasts lake views, more than 5 acres of grounds, a pool, a basketball court and a guest house. Wowza.
