About Jack Thomas Herrin

Born in Waco, raised/ educated in Austin, my family has been in and around the Waco area for generations. I currently "reside" in Colorado but more or less spit my time between the 3. I have a deep passion for everything outdoors, live music and, of course, Baylor University Athletics.

Jack Thomas Herrin purchased this condo in 1970

Why Jack Thomas Herrin chose Waco

Family Owned and operated since construction was completed in the 70's by my Grandfather, Jack Thomas, who was a student athlete and later coached football for the Baylor Bears. Having served and supported the University and the local community for well over 30 years, he had a deep passion for the University and its sense of community.

Once student housing, we have recently remodeled completely and now aim to service the Baylor Community and the Greater Waco area in their accommodation needs while maintaining the sense of community that is our heritage.

Although he is no longer with us it is with great pleasure that we are able to continue serving the Baylor/ Waco community for which I know he'd be proud. we hope to carry on Jack Thomas' s legacy of hospitality and generosity for many years to come.

Lovely boutique hotel

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in unit 4. It was comfortable and well acquainted. The unit featured all the amenities from a spice rack in the kitchen to cotton balls, q-tips and even a shoe shine cloth. Centrally located to everything, we would definitely stay here again. Ashley and Jack were very pleasant and provided a smooth check in/out experience.

Beautiful accommodations with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and felt at home. It was nice to be right across the street from the Baylor campus. There is a Starbucks in the Science building but it was closed during the Christmas break. We will definitely keep this at the top of our list on our next visit.

The location is great and so is the price. Clean and the space is so organized. The property manager was easy to contact and tons of help. When I go back I will definitely be looking to stay here,

Great, but put the site manager to work

  • 5 of 5

Ashley, it is a really cool place, well thought out, furnished and provisioned. But I was an inspector of nuclear weapon security, so, fix the upstairs sink that does not drain well, paint with better paint, it needs it, maybe Satin? The blinds upstairs in the east bedroom are broken, fix them. The inside of the front door needs cleaned as well. This is a gem. Quiet, great location, lovely, so care for it! Highly recommended if Ashley gets busy.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Timothy, and for your feedback. We are glad you found it to be a gem also! We actually do have the blinds on order and painting on our to-do list. We weren't aware of a draining issue in the sink upstairs, and could have checked that out for you. We will be getting that fixed asap. We'd be happy to host you again anytime!

Great Condo for the Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our condo had everything we needed for a relaxing trip. The Baylor campus is beautiful and the location of the condos is perfect. We were able to eat in (and grill) or out whichever mood we were in. Kitchen is nicely appointed. Having a washer/dryer was ideal too. Wifi throughout the condo was strong and we never lost a signal. Very comfortable beds, pillows, and linens. Plenty of dinnerware and wine glasses. This HomeAway Condo was exactly what we needed and everything we wanted for a seven day, six night vacation in Waco, Texas.
