My arty, light-hearted house is on a large wooded lot in a park-like setting, two short blocks from White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum. Hike and bike trail is a jogger or cyclist's dream! Ten minutes to downtown or to Lower Greenville’s nightlife with interesting shops and restaurants. Large country kitchen for fun cooking! Redwood hot tub on a big outdoor deck. Your furnished bedroom and private bathroom is at the end of its own wing with a huge shower and stained glass window.
No candles, No incense, No fire.
Please hang up wet towels and don't put them on the furniture.
No other guests.
Enjoy the house, the yard, the lake... and keep your sense of humor!

I’m a generally happy, upbeat grown-up girl who thoroughly enjoys having guests in my home. Meeting new people, making new connections, and bringing good energy into Casa de Marci give me great joy!
I can’t live without family, friends, spectacular sunsets, warm chocolate chip cookies, and blues dancing. Well, perhaps I could live, but life wouldn’t be nearly as much fun!
I tend to travel to the same places over and over…and my travel almost always involves visiting people who are family and longtime friends of the heart. I'm happiest in a damp redwood forest. Love the California coastline, my hometown of New York City (born on Broadway!), my growing-up town of Cleveland, and the many cities that I travel to for blues dance workshops. Doing massage on a cruise ship one week out of the year for five years allowed me to travel to the Tahitian Islands, the Greek Islands, Caribbean Islands, Spain, France, and Italy. Backpacked through Europe many moons ago for a couple of months and still have magical memories!
I love live theater, comedy, music, and movies. Would much rather go to a local one-of-a-kind "joint" than a chain restaurant. Have been a Licensed Massage Therapist in private practice for many years in Dallas, and giving massages continues to be my passion. And did I mention how much I love blues dancing?
As the founder of For the Love of the Lake, a non-profit group of volunteers dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of White Rock Lake Park as an urban oasis, needless to say, White Rock Lake is one of my true loves. Jogging and biking around the lake (not at the same time!) is always wonderful. Skipping across the street to see the intense beauty of the Dallas Arboretum or a sunset over the lake makes my soul sing.
My life motto is so corny, so overdone, so trite, written on way too many needlepoints and wooden plaques, but still absolutely true for me: Live, Love, and LAUGH!
My home is full of fun, colorful art and whimsical creations. Hopefully it will make you smile as much as it does me. As a host, am hoping that you have a terrific time in my home and in my city. I can be helpful and guide you to some of the hidden treasures of our town, or can be hands-off and let you have your privacy and discover things on your own. Either way, I'm eager to have you as my guest!
