Lyle House

  • 5 of 5

The Lyle house was in a perfect location for our vacation. We traveled to Waco to see the sites near Baylor and downtown and reached any destination in 10-15 minutes.

The VRBO webpage describes the property accurately with both pix and text. We played games outside in the evening and had to use flash lights after dark. A floodlight near the garage would be a great addition and save a flying washer to the head.

The welcome gift and well stocked kitchen was a nice treat. Chocolate, wine and coffee get us everytime.

Thank you Bonnie.

Guys trip to visit son and nephew who attends Baylor University.

  • 5 of 5

Accommodations were good. Twin beds room was extremely too hot when rest of house was real cold. Peanut M&Ms were a great touch as well as coffee and snacks. Fire pit was used and was great. Maybe some folding chairs to have a backrest at the fire.

Overall real nice and we will for sure be back next Nov.

The layout of the house is pretty strange, but overall it worked for the six of us. Plenty of hot water for showers and the beds were really comfortable. We had trouble figuring out the TV because it doesn't have cable. It uses streaming which we weren't use to. We never did figure out the living room TV, so we all huddled in the green room to watch the World Series. Would I stay here again? It probably wouldn't be my first choice, but it wouldn't disappoint me to stay there, either.

Terrific House for a Waco Stay.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Waco for our grandson's graduation and also to have a family reunion. Some of our grown children stayed with us at the house and we hosted a dinner and a birthday gathering with prior consent from the owners. I can't say enough great things about both the owners and the house.

We were greeted with snacks, wine and the basics we'd need for our almost week long stay. The house is in great shape in a quiet neighborhood. With comfortable furnishings, super soft beds and plenty of room we had no issues having family there. The kitchen is fabulous! The only type of dishes or pans we had to get were a vase and a pizza pan, everything else was already there including spices. There was laundry detergents so we were able to do our laundry but also keep up with the towels we used until the last day. They also had shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath for kids etc and was so grateful for the assist bar in the full bath tub.

We especially enjoyed the "Green Room" and of course the back yard. Our family spent most of the time on the patio and playing games in the back yard and loved every minute of our time there. My grown daughters were also impressed.

We've stayed at a number of vacation houses both on this site and others but honestly the Lyle House was the best stocked house we've ever been at. We felt at home there and encourage anyone who is looking for a comfortable place to stay, that's convenient to all areas of Waco to stay at the Lyle house.

P.S. Mornings on the patio are wonderful with the birds, neighborhood squirrels and there's even a bird nest with babies in the eaves of the patio roof.
