                          Owner info

                          About the owner: We have the best of both worlds, a home in Alaska and one in Texas. We love to travel with family as well as get away to a secluded place just to be with each other. Our Waco home is a wonderful place to do both,

                          Why the Owner Chose Waco:
                          We inherited this property from my husbands Father. We so love Waco that we have kept it. Recently, we completely renovated this home, adding AC, new wiring as well as internet and cable connections. Beautifully handcrafted maple cabinets now grace the kitchen. When we finished, we so loved the result, we wanted to be able to spend time there ourselves. We decided to rent it out in a different manner, so we could take advantage of staying there when we visited Texas and share the comfort of our home with others, when we are not able to be there.
