Just the right size and a good price

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and clean!! The owner provided a lot more of the basic needs than we get in other VRBO we have stayed at before. It was just minutes from everything. The information package given to us was very informative. The local food was great and priced very reasonable.i would don this again in the future and recommend it .

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It was in a quiet neighborhood and was within minutes of all the sites we wanted to visit. There was 4 of us and we all had plenty of room and didn't feel overcrowded. The beds were super comfy and there was plenty of towels, linens etc. Netflix and wifi was a plus! We also enjoyed the goodies that were left for us. I would recommend this house and would definitely stay here again if ever return to Waco. Thanks Pam!

Pleasant and Welcoming Home

  • 5 of 5

Our short trip to Waco was made even more special after arriving at this home. True, there were just two adults and two small dogs making up our "group", but finding that we could "stretch out" and enjoy the extra room(s) a definite PLUS. Our decision to rent this location was due to all the pictures we found online regarding the listing.

Being unfamiliar with area tourist locations we were happy to find, upon check-in a complete packet over viewing sites, restaurants, etc.. . . . And what a surprise to find a bottle of wine in the refrigerator AND two FULL candy dishes on the kitchen countertop to help us "sketch out" our plans.

We had hoped to spend several additional days in Waco, but were called back home due to unforeseen circumstances. 🙁򠐠But we know for SURE - - Waco truly has more to offer each and every traveler coming into this area.

This listing offers the ability to rest, relax in the back yard, or enjoy preparing a meal in the convenient kitchen. Don't forget to check your check-in information packet to find close grocery stores and area restaurants!!!

Thank You Pam for Everything You Did to Make Our Stay "Unforgetable" !!

Pam's place was just as described on VRBO. Great place for a family to stay while visiting Waco.

  • 5 of 5

Pam's property on Lyle Ave was perfect for our family of 6. The house was just as described, well maintained and very clean. It is an older home in an older neighborhood but it, as well as the surrounding homes, has been well kept and the neighborhood was very quiet. I grew up in Waco so I had a good idea of the surroundings. Some may say it's a little far from a few places you might want to visit but not more than a 15 minute drive. We were happy to not stay at a chain hotel while traveling with adult children. Having this home to stay in was much more enjoyable as we could gather in the green room for tv watching, in the dining room for playing games and the kitchen has ample space for more than one cook. The back yard is great for all kinds of outdoor activities and the covered porch was very large with comfy chairs for drinking coffee in the mornings. Check in and out was very easy and our stay went without a hitch. I would recommend this for couples traveling together or for large families. Plenty of room to stretch out. Thanks, Pam, for a great stay!

Good location, nice size house

  • 4 of 5

I would like to say the owner of this place upgraded our internet when we had trouble which was nice of her to do. The location is good with shopping 5min away. Easy parking, clean home beautiful decorations

Problems we had:

The windows in the house don't open, none of them. It was stuffy so he had the AC on all the time

The TVs barely had any channels.

Internet was super slow until the owner fixed it

Lamp above oven doesn't work.
