What makes this chateau / country house unique

Property is located 3.5 miles west of I-35 just north of Waco.

There is easy access to Baylor University. The house is just .5 west of Highway 933.

This is also called the Golson Rd. From the north traveling down I-35 you can exit at Elm Mott, go west on highway 308 three miles then turn left on 933. Go about .5 miles and turn onto Cox's Oak Valley Rd. Count the mail boxes and enter after 5th mail box.

There's No Place Like Home

This spacious home in the country reminded me a lot of my parents (passed away recently) home. Nostalgic!

Perfect for our purpose

  • 5 of 5

While this is not a luxury rental, it was a great home for a pre-Christmas gathering for the family. There were plenty of pots and pans, cooking, serving and eating utensils to make a nice Christmas dinner to eat on the large dining room table. The hostess/owner was most gracious and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Everything was in working order - but be aware the wifi is quite slow.

This house is lived in when not being rented which made it feel more like visiting a relatives house while they are away, so don't expect a hotel-like experience. The location was far enough out of town to be secluded and quiet, but close enough to Waco to get to Baylor and the down town area in 15 minutes. We quite liked it. And it was very reasonably priced - fitting for the type of rental it is.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I am so glad your family could enjoy an early Christmas gathering. The wifi is a problem because the house is in the country and ATT does not seem to be able to remedy our problem and so far I have not found an alternate service though I am still looking.
