Great for family time.

  • 5 of 5

Nice people. Great quiet spot. The house was just right for us as we have two small children who tend to get rowdy in hotels and it's hard to relax. We didn't have to worry about other people. The yard is really cool too!

Close to attractions and university. They were willing to accommodate our small dog and there was an outside area for her. Very comfortable.

The property was so unexpected, if it had been warmer we would have taken advantage of the beautiful outdoor area. The cottage was perfect for our 1 night Waco adventure - thank you thank you I would absolutely recommend this vrbo.

Very accommodating owners. First time staying in Waco. Cottage was clean and well appointed. Temperature dropped over 45 degrees overnight and heating system handled it great. Thanks for the stay.

Car: necessary

Cameron Park is within walking distance, about 2 blocks away, and you can get there easily on foot. There should be maps (as well as other information about Waco) in the basket in the dining room.

Walking: Just across the street from our driveway, in the Methodist Children’s home. Nice and quiet, hilly campus.

Or, go to Cameron Park. Walk out our driveway, turn right and go down the hill to Lindsey Hollow. Turn left; you’ll see an intersecting street with white gates. It’s blocked off, but walk down it and you’ll get to Proctor Springs. Keep going straight and you’ll follow a path into the heart of the park, and to the river. There are playgrounds and trails. All beautiful.

Or, visit the fabulous Cameron Park Zoo.

Outdoor Waco, on University Parks, rents kayaks & bikes.

HEB is our local, excellent grocery store, and it has multiple locations nearby.

There is a Laundromat on 18th Street (Take Herring to 18th, turn right, and it will be on your left).

Magnolia and The Findery are fun shopping downtown. Cameron Trading Company has antiques, and is on Austin Avenue. Papillon is at 1025 Austin Avenue and has nice antiques and decor. Show and Tell Antiques is expensive but in a grand old historic house and worth a look at 1525 Morrow, near Harp Design, also on 15th.

Restaurant suggestions?

Try Bangkok Royal, downtown, for great Thai food.

Burgers: Dubl-R (on Herring and 18th St.) or Health Camp (on the Circle).

Kitok’s (on 18th) is also great—be sure to order the “Oriental Fries.”

Fancy, expensive steakhouse: Diamondback’s, on Franklin near University Parks. Also a bar, Cricket’s, and Mexican, Ninfa’s.

Lots of Food Trucks at University Parks and Franklin. Selections include BBQ, Indian, Cupcakes.

Great Mexican dive, in a converted Pizza Hut: take Herring to 19th, follow it 5 minutes until you pass the HEB; just next to Dairy Queen is “Taqueria Mexicana” or some such name. Fantastic Tortilla Soup & often margarita specials.

There’s also a Torchy’s Tacos, which is great, on 5th Street near Baylor.

Manny’s on the River: New, clean place on the Brazos for good quality Tex-Mex. Go watch the sunset! On Martin Luther King Drive, about 2 minutes from our house.

Two fun local bars/pubs: Barnett’s, downtown, and the Dancing Bear, near Baylor.

Good lunch place/coffee shop: Lula Jane's, on Elm (across the river in East Waco) and Dichotomy, downtown serves coffee AND cocktails. Thus the name.

Just further down from Lula Jane’s is Tony De Maria’s—great, authentic BBQ. But go early, as they sell out fast—usually by noon.

Baylor campus coffee shop: Common Grounds.

Really neat place out on Gholson Road, Homestead Heritage. Check it out on the web for more details; they make cheese, pottery, furniture, etc. and have a wonderful restaurant. They also offer HORSEBACK RIDING, as one of our guests found out!

The Waco Farmer’s Market is downtown on Saturdays from 9-1. Lots of fun stuff there.
