We really enjoyed our stay in Waco, upon arrival we were greeted with snacks and wine so that started our vacation off right! We were so grateful to find a place that allowed us to bring our dog on vacation with us and you can tell by the decor and dog treats they really like dogs too. Those are my kind of people! Loved all the homey touches and also enjoyed the covered back patio as it rained every day we were there. Thank you for sharing your home with us! - (May 2021 - Airbnb)

I would highly recommend this house to anyone coming to Waco or having family/friends coming into town. The interior is darling, the kitchen well equipped and the backyard great for games (our family made use of the corn hole and ladder ball), grilling out and sitting around the fire pit. The two living areas in the house gave our group space to spread out. The neighborhood is quiet, felt safe and is well maintained. Pam and Bonnie were easy to work with and very accommodating. - (Jun 2019)

Fantastic stay in Lyle House - close to everything!

We spent a couple of days here at Lyle House during Spring Break. The nicely decorated house had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked. The beds were comfortable that ensured a good night's sleep was had by all. The children also enjoyed the maze like layout of the house! The welcome treats were a good touch too. They say thank you for the chocolate!! Communication with the Property Managers was quick and effective before and during our stay. The location was great and close to all the attractions. The neighbors were also very friendly which was a huge plus. I'd recommend staying here when visiting Waco! - (Mar 2019)

This was our first time staying in an airb&b and it did not disappoint. We had all the comforts of home. The decor is quirky and fun. The back covered porch was where we spent every afternoon and my granddaughter had a ball in the backyard. We arrived with a bottle of wine in the frig., candy and coffee with a sweet note. The house was spotless. Pam is a wonderful host. - (Mar 2019)

My friends and I went to Waco to go to the BSR water park. We had a great time there. The Lyle House was the perfect set up... It was enough sleeping space, clean, and comfortable.

Convenient location, awesome amenities, great hosts

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. - (Mar 2018)

Charming, fully stocked house!

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. - (Mar 2018)

* * * * *

Highly recommend.

Very comfortable home for our group of 4. Appreciated the snacks and local tips. Lots of space inside and out. - (Mar 2018)
