Southern hospitality at its finest! This is a gorgeous, spacious home that is elegantly designed and equipped with everything a guest might want or need. When we arrived, I was particularly pleased to find a full fridge and pantry stocked with high end organic ingredients and my kids were thrilled to find shelves of toys just for them, many of which were new in the box. Far and away the best Airbnb experience we've had!

A fantastic host and beautiful home. When we arrived Ted and Renee had stocked up the house with more than just essentials, which was really appreciated after 14 hours flying. Our hosts were close by but only there when we needed help/information. We stayed in 2 of there houses during our stay and the pictures don't really do them justice, they were fantastic. Any "home comfort" was thought of and provided. Our business trip was successful and we will definitely be back at Ted and Renee's.

I fell in love with Mobile when I moved here from Birmingham, Ala., in the early 70's to attend the University of South Alabama, and I've been here ever since. I loved the historic architecture of the Midtown and Downtown areas of Mobile so much that I decided I would build my career around classic architecture. Since my college days, I embarked on a long career that includes restoring much of the historic homes in Mobile and in New Orleans' famous French Quarter. From there, I used that experience to design and build new homes in classic architectural style. A trip to Paris in my 20's to begin my study of the architecture there has influenced the path of my life more than anything. I have traveled to Paris for more than 30 years now to immerse myself particularly in the study of stone masonry architecture. In the mid-1990's, I took a leap of faith and created the DAC-ART Building System, a method of designing and building with "concrete stone" masonry that looks exactly like the beautiful limestone buildings in Paris, New York, Washington, D.C., and other great cities. Like these great buildings, my DAC-ART homes are built to last for many generations, requiring little maintenance and withstanding storms better than any other homes built today. ( "DAC-ART" to see some of my designs.) Great homes are my passion, and if you would like to visit Renee and me in Mobile, I think you'll understand why I made this place my home so many years ago. Because of DAC-ART, my custom home design business, I have clients all over the country, and that gives me the opportunity to explore their hometowns and meet people from their home states in New York, Connecticut, Texas, Florida, California, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Washington D.C., Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Mississippi, to name a few. Exploring other places and cultures is one of the best perks of my profession, and Renee and I would love to share our city with you! Hope to hear from you soon...
