Convenient location, awesome amenities, great hosts

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here on a last minute Spring Break trip to Waco and couldn't have been more pleased dealing with the hosts. They were quick to respond and it was super easy to book.

The house is in a nice neighborhood with friendly neighbors. As always, I used Google maps to "drive" the neighborhood and it was as expected. The hosts have very detailed and easy instructions on entry and checkout.

The house was much like the pictures showed. I would classify the house overall as no-frills, but the amenities and attention to all the little things was by far the best I have experienced via a vacation rental home. Things like extra towels, soap, shampoo, aluminum foil, sunscreen, utensils, vegetable oil, condiments were all plentiful. Extra sheets, blankets, pillows and bedding were all found easily. This was what made our stay so nice. Make sure you check in before you go grocery shopping as there is a good chance you will only need big items and not a bunch of condiments.

The best overall part for our family was the backyard. There is a nice firepit with plenty of wood, Cornhole game, ladder toss game, nice seating areas.

It was a nice stay for what we needed. It was 10 minutes to Cameron Park and Magnolia as well as many of the other parts of Waco so that was great.

Charming, fully stocked house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Lyle house! House was clean and well stocked. There were 4 of us - 2 sets of Mothers and daughters, on an official college visit to Baylor - and we had more than enough room. We loved having a kitchen to cook our current Baylor bear a birthday dinner, and the beds were super comfortable. Loved the backyard patio, but would have referred more outdoor lighting, so it could be enjoyed after dark.

Overall it was a wonderful stay. These 2 families hope to return several times while our kids are in Waco.

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.
