Had a great time! It was the perfect distance to town!

  • 5 of 5

We worked at the Silos for 4 days and this home allowed us to be close enough to town but far enough from the hustle and bustle of a crowded neighborhood. The home was comfortable and nostalgic. Because we worked from sun up to sun down, we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful back yard / patio or the hot tub but hope to return again and mark that off the list! The Home Owner was awesome to work with and very accommodating! We'll be back!

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.
