About David and Rachel

This home was named "the bachelor pad" when I had it renovated on the show during his single days. We still call it "the bachelor pad," but my relationship status has changed! A mutual friend introduced us, and we soon knew we wanted to get married and spend our lives together. I have called Waco home for several years, so if you want any tips or recommendations regarding the city, I'm happy to help!

David and Rachel purchased this house in 2015

Great place for families and groups

  • 5 of 5

We had several people in town for a conference, and the house was fantastic for a couple of business meetings and providing comfortable sleep to the crew. Internet was fast, TV is large and backyard is huge. Highly recommend the house to anyone staying in the area. The only heads up I will offer is it is 15 minutes from everything, which isn't bad, but I mention it, because distance wise it seems like it is seconds from downtown, but the streets in Waco do not work that way.

Nice & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It was so nice to stay in a house where the kids could spread out versus a hotel. It had everything to make us feel at home. Rachel and David were very gracious and accommodating. We toured Waco and learned all kinds of interesting things. It made for a great family getaway.

The perfect Magnolia experience!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, two daughters and 5 granddaughters, had a delightful stay in the "bachelor pad". It was a chance for the cousins to be together during spring break and they were all excited about the house. It lived up to everyones expectations. Great weather allowed the girls to take advantage of the volleyball court ( they are all players) and the stay was definitely a memory builder. Thank you to Rachel and David!!!

A Wonderful Night in Waco!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great day exploring everything that Waco had to offer and then came back to Rachel and David’s lovely home. Everything was as clean as a whistle and so comfortable. David gave us a great recommendation for a local pizza parlor and it was fantastic. All in all, the Cincinnati tennis girls had a great time and highly recommend this property. We’ll be back!
