About Kyle & Amanda Mauldin

We just purchased our dream property and want to share it with you. 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 stay in other peoples apartments and homes and have made unforgettable experiences in every place. We hope to be the best hosts that you've ever had and hope that you thoroughly enjoy your stay in Provo/Orem.

Kyle & Amanda Mauldin purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Kyle & Amanda Mauldin chose Orem

It's not in a neighborhood or apartment complex. It's quiet. It's private. It's close to Costco, the river, BYU, Sundance, it's perfect!

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!

What an amazing place to be. Our stay was excellent, and every detail was in order.

  • 5 of 5

The casita is comfortable, thoughtful and private. The property owner is very near by and Amanda and Kyle are very friendly and welcoming. Our children and whole family were treated like old friends and made to feel very much at home. We only wished we had more time as we clearly did not stay long enough. What an unique place to stay and with superb access to all sights and details all ensuring great comfort. I hope we can come back soon!! Thank you, Thank you!!!

Fun place with great location

  • 5 of 5

We had fun here and it was close to everything we wanted to do in the Provo/Orem area. Everything was very clean. It was a great price for the location. We would like to call to attention something, that is very clear in the ad, but we did not prepare for... There is a nice TV, but no cable or satellite service. You can bring a computer and hook up some netflix or something since the internet works well...

I would recommend three things that would make this place perfect: 1) a chest of drawers in each room, 2) cable/satellite TV, 3) more silverware (there were only 4 complete sets, so needless to say we had to do a lot of dishes).

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback! We'll get some chest of drawers to put in the closets for sure. I just purchased that new TV last week and haven't had a chance to hook anything up to it yet other than the internet (SmartTV). I've ordered an HD antenna this morning which will bring in all of the local channels (ABC, CBS, BYUTV, FOX, etc) in HD. I'll get that hooked up next week:) And another set of silverware will be added to the drawer this week as well. We're glad you were able to enjoy your stay. Take care!

Convenient location and comfortable place.

  • 5 of 5

We used this rental as a family home base for a wedding in Provo and a reception in Idaho. Although we didn't use it because we were traveling too much, the kitchen was most impressive and included a large fridge and desired dishes and appliances.

Beds were comfortable. Location was private and relaxing. A second bathroom might have been nice since there were five of us, but the area outside the bathroom (laundry room) has a sink and mirror for getting ready, so that helped. We couldn't find the towels at first, but they were in a drawer in the bathroom.

It was also convenient to have the key in a lock box as we arrived so we didn't have to look for someone to get the key. Maybe that is standard procedure, but this was our first VRBO experience. We'll surely try this again. It was much cheaper and nicer than the two hotel rooms we would have rented for the event.

We didn't talk to anyone during our stay because all was in order, but Amanda emailed us back quickly when I had questions before our arrival.
