The Prickly Pear by Curated Stays: Long or Short Stays
Size –3 Bedrooms • 2 Bathrooms 2 Baths • Sleeps 7-8
We love the Prickly Pear. It was the first house we purchased and remodeled for guests. It has many lovelies in it which are precious to us: Deirdre's aunt's enormous dining table from a Catholic convent in Missouri, copper plates her grandfather brought back from Mexico in the 1960s, and amazing clerestory windows above the whole living/dining/kitchen which bathe the home in beautiful, natural light all day long. It's near the Expo Center and airport and close to ACU. Please contact us for a video tour of the property.

About the Owner
Deirdre is a transplant to Texas and Jeff is a native. We remodeled and decorated our houses ourselves and treasure each part. We enjoy sharing them with travelers who also appreciate the little details and a comfortable, boutique stay.
After living in Dallas for a dozen years (and suffering years of one-way, hour-long commutes) upon our move to Abilene we decided to live in an area as centrally located as possible: we wanted to be close to everything. We love our neighborhood because it is established, safe, and has trees. MANY, many pecan trees. If you visit in season you can pick up fresh pecans off the street.
Deirdre is a former Latin instructor and current property manager and owner of Curated Stays. She usually has AirPods in and is listening to an audio book or podcast while caring for guests and homes. Weekends will find her with her friends scavenging estate sales and tag sales for treasures.
Jeff is usually downtown where he serves as the Executive Director of Frontier Texas, a local history museum.
Our four children have flown the coop. Three sons and a DIL live in Moscow, Idaho and attend or have matriculated from New Saint Andrews College. Our daughter and her husband live in Phoenix, Arizona. Deirdre visits them all as frequently as possible.
