4 Bedroom, 1 Bath Farmhouse with Room to Roam!
About Brandie Holloway
Hey guys, I'm Brandie! I'm 44 and recently decided to slow down my horse show career to stay at home more with my two younger sons and husband. In the past, I spent 42 weeks on the road per year, giving me lots of experience staying at vacation rentals while horse showing. This gave me great insight to understand what people want (or don't want!) while traveling for vacation and/or work. I've started this new chapter to help with income while I spend more time with the kiddos and I love decorating! So this really isn't work for me. I'm a 3rd generation Topekan so I can tell you all the good places to go. I look forward to help make your stay in the midwest wonderful! Thank you for checking out my places and I hope to talk to you soon!
Why Brandie Holloway chose Topeka
My husband and I have been wanting this house for as long as I can remember. We recently had the opportunity to purchase it. Well taken care of, the same family had lived there for over sixty years, raising all of their children there! We are renting it out from time to time, to fund the purchase of this wonderful place originally purchased from Indians. If you want country charm, you are at the right place.

We rented Brandie's place, for a short getaway, and birthday dinner with friends, that my husband planned for me. We had a great time, and absolutely loved the farmhouse themed home. It was quiet and peaceful, yet not far from convenience's. We're not strangers to north Topeka, so we didn't have a problem finding the house. My husband LOVED it, and went on and on about how this place reminded him of when he was younger, living in a small town. Our guests were comfortable, and loved the decor as well. Brandie was very nice, and had detailed instructions for the rental. Even though we didn't stay the full time or sleep there, we had an amazing evening and dinner here!
Hi Latoya, great to hear you guys had such a good time! We always love sharing this home with guests. Thank you for the glowing review!
Although this house can definitely sleep a lot of people, it isn't up to VRBO standards. I would definitely not recommend that children stay here, as there were exposed outlets and wires coming out of the walls. Unfortunately, the shower wasn't working and since there was only one bathroom, that posed a serious problem. The bathroom tile had, what appeared to be, black mold throughout and the water was VERY low. The beds were comfortable and there were lots of them, but it didn't make up for the bathroom situation. Also, there was a very strong urine odor that appeared from time to time in the dining room area.
Note to future occupants: Google maps and Apple maps will not find this address. Also, be sure to bring your own toilet paper.
We sincerely regret that this guest was dissatisfied and we were not made aware of their concerns until this review. Our goal is to provide a clean and welcoming environment and we are committed to making sure that all of our guests are satisfied and comfortable. We are readily accessible by phone, text, and email and maintenance matters are taken seriously and expeditiously resolved once they are reported to us. Our housekeepers are continually praised in our other reviews on many different sites.
Since this review, the bathroom and plumbing has had a complete remodel. Please see the pictures!
While we're disheartened by the review this guest left, we wish them well and hope that their next vacation rental may more closely meet their expectations. We believe the positive sentiments expressed in the other reviews we've accumulated reflect the experiences our guests will continue to enjoy.
There was plenty of room in this charming farmhouse. Would have liked a couple of more window coverings in the kitchen and in the living room. The beds were very comfortable and the property was clean!
Thank you very much. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the recommendation. Brandie
Quaint and comfortable home
We stayed here to have more space for our family and to avoid hotel prices. It is cozy and very clean. The owner puts a lot of thought into the details and we found nothing lacking. Definitely recommend.
Thank you so much for the kind words. We welcome you back anytime!
Very cute older home, very comfortable and homey. Home has lots of privacy and on a large lot.
Six unrelated friends shared the home, made dinner at the home. The owners where very helpful. Watch out for Google Maps, it didn't take us directly to the home, had to call the owner for help. Great property.
