About John & Kathy Haley
We have the best of both worlds, a home in Alaska and one in Texas. We love to travel with family as well as get away to a secluded place just to be with each other. Our Waco home is a wonderful place to do both,
John & Kathy Haley purchased this House in 1995
Why John & Kathy Haley chose University
We inherited this property from my husbands Father. We so love Waco that we have kept it. Recently, we completely renovated this home, adding AC, new wiring as well as internet and cable connections. Beautifully handcrafted maple cabinets now grace the kitchen. When we finished, we so loved the result, we wanted to be able to spend time there ourselves. We decided to rent it out in a different manner, so we could take advantage of staying there when we visited Texas and share the comfort of our home with others, when we are not able to be there.

Comfortable and relaxing getaway
This was our second stay at Haley House and it was like coming back home. Everything was as I remembered. The house is cozy and comfortable. It served as home base for our daughter's wedding. Thank you for the personal attention and making us feel at home. I feel like we've been friends forever! Looking forward to more visits to Waco and Haley House in the years to come!
So blessed to have you here again. You are a wonderful guest and I feel as you, that we have been friends for ever, though we have never met face to face.
We are happy to be your home away from home while in Waco. Hope to share our home with you again soon.

Just love this home. Our Texas Baptist Ministry Assistants have made this our home each time we have come to Waco. Clean, a great location, and beautiful back yard. Great place to get away and focus on our business. In town and yet in quiet neighborhood. We loved it so much we are talking about coming to Waco and stay here for a reunion.
It has been an honor and a joy to have you with us each and every time. We always look forward to your visits.
So glad our home fit your needs, both in location and amenities we provide for you and the ladies who travel with you.
We would so love to have you back for a reunion.
Under the Same Wings,

Convient location , clean, well stocked, great fenced back yard !
Lovely stay during a hectic Thanksgiving on the road with family . Kathy is great at communicating never had to wait for a response . The kitchen is well stocked , the beds comfortable and all was tidy . The back yard was a plus as it was warm out for November and this extended our space . Could use a few more comfortable chairs or love seat in the living area the couch and one club chair are small but of course we had 7 people eating dinner we had only 4 sleep over and the home is furnished with small antiques and 5 out the 7 people were well over 6 feet tall !
Thank you taking time to write your review. So glad you were able to make our home work for you. I was a little concerned about 7 folks fitting around our dining room table..but I am so glad it worked, hope the wooden TV trays help extend your space some.
It was great to get to know you during the reservation process. We hope you will return again at a future time.
Hope your pups enjoyed the backyard and the the dog door was useful to them. It is always our desire that our home be a place of respite in the middle of a busy city.
Once again thank you for taking the time to review us.
Under the Same Wings,
Kathy & John
Very comfortable and inviting
Wonderful location. Large fences in yard. My dogs loved it
So glad you enjoyed your time in our home! We strive to set an atmosphere of relaxation and comfort, or both our human and 4 legged furry guest. We hope you return to us again when you return to Waco
Kathy & John Haley
A great place to stay!
It was very clean, beautifully decorated, everything you need, and a nice yard grimy dog! We would stay here again and would recommend to our friends.
We are so blessed that you enjoyed your time in our home and your pup enjoyed the yard, hope the dog door was easy for your furry family member to traverse in and out of the back yard with.
We look forward to having you with us again in the near future and thank you for taking time to write a review. We so appreciate it.
Kathy and John
very nice inside !!!!
Unfortunately we didn't end up staying over night. We finished all of our activities around 4:00 pm Friday and decided to drive back home to Beaumont. I want to thank Kathy for letting us make the arrangements to stay overnight. We do not expect any refund. Thanks again, David Thomas
I am sorry that you didn't get the opportunity to stay overnight in our home, but perhaps at another time it will work out. Thank you for taking the time to write a review...and we hope you will be able to stay with us in the future.
