About Kyle & Amanda Mauldin

We recently purchased our dream property and want to share it with you. A little farm in the city. The fact that it is so central yet so secluded is what makes this property unique and ideal for visitors to Provo/Orem. We love to travel, and have done so with our 4 children all over the USA and Central America since they were babies. We tend to stay in other vacation rentals over hotels and have had amazing experiences in every place we've gone. We hope to be the best of hosts for you and your family and that you thoroughly enjoy your stay in Provo/Orem.

Kyle & Amanda Mauldin purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Kyle & Amanda Mauldin chose Hillcrest

It's secluded. It's not in a neighborhood or an apartment complex. It's quiet. It's private. It's 2 minutes to Costco, 2 minutes to the Theater and restaurants, 100 yards to the Provo River, 5 minutes to BYU, and 15 minutes to the lifts at Sundance. It's perfect!

Clean and spacious apartment with all the amenities

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 7 nights in Kyle and Amanda’s apartment over their detached garage. First impressions were that the apartment was very clean and well appointed. It was spacious and had plenty of beds for my family of 7. The property is a cute farm-like residence with some chickens and horses so if the smell of maneur bothers you, this might not be the place for you. Since it was Thanksgiving, we did some pie baking and amanda was kind enough to loan us her rolling pin and a mixer for whipped cream.

The only negatives at the property were: the beds are not super comfortable and that the garage is noisy. When the owners come and go from their garage, doors opening and closing, talking, and the car engines are quite clearly heard inside the apartment whether it’s 6:00 am or 10:30 pm.

Overall it was a nice place to stay.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Kyle and Amanda's guest house was the perfect location for all I had planned in Provo. It's really close to both BYU's campus and Provo Canyon. The guest house is clean, light-filled, and really comfortable. I will definitely be staying with them again!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

I am not one to usually write reviews but I had to share how great my experience was. This was my first time using a vacation rental. Everything went exactly as planned/promised. Kyle and Amanda were very accommodating and the Casita was very clean and fully functional. I was moving my daughter into her college apartment plus it was her 18th birthday. So needles to say there was a lot of running around. As well as a little get together the last night of our stay. They did not seem bothered one bit by the in and out at all hours of the day. The Casita was located very conveniently to all the shops I needed and close to the University. One evening, my kids made it back before me, with just a simple text, they quickly opened the Casita for my children. One plus to having the homeowner on site. We felt very safe and at ease during our stay. And hope others will enjoy it as much as we did.

Thank you Kyle and Amanda!

Private vacation spot with GREAT VIEWS and close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

Recently had the opportunity to be in the Provo/Orem area, and stayed in this great garage apartment. Every room was spacious, and we loved the open floorplan. Having a complete laundry was a bonus. The owner and manager were responsive to our needs, and YES, we would return!
