Get the full Waco experience by staying in "The Bachelor Pad" renovated on Season 3! This home is ideal for having a relaxing, fun time with your friends and family. It is located in a quiet, centrally-located neighborhood only a short drive from the Silos, Magnolia Table, and Baylor.

Inside, you'll find an open living room, dining area, and kitchen with two islands. There is also a large tv room with plenty of comfortable seating. The home has four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, guest room one has two twin beds, guest room two has a queen-sized bed, and guest room three has a queen-sized bed as well as a bunk bed with two twin mattresses. The master bedroom, guest rooms one and two and all the bathrooms are on one side of the house. The two guest bathrooms are across the hall from guest rooms one and two. Guest bedroom three with the queen-sized bed and bunk beds is on the other side of the house from all the bathrooms and other bedrooms.

The kitchen is stocked with utensils, and we have plenty of soft towels and sheets to make you feel at home away from home.

Outside, you can relax on the large covered back porch. On the back porch, you can use the grill to prepare a great meal or play a ping pong match using the ping pong table (or both at the same time if you like to multitask). You can also play volleyball or basketball games on the back yard courts since we have a sand volleyball court and a basketball court.

The home is nestled on a sizable lot with sprawling shade trees in a safe, quiet neighborhood a short distance from Lake Waco. It is centrally located in Waco about 15 minutes away from Magnolia, 20 minutes away from Baylor, and 5 minutes away from an HEB grocery store and a Starbucks. If you're looking for a place to relax and have fun while you're in Waco, this house would be a great fit for you.

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 Rachel and me, 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

Why David and Rachel chose Mountainview

"The Bachelor Pad" appealed to me because I love to welcome people in to my home, and this house is a great place for people to come to relax and have fun. Some of my most fun times in this house were when I invited people over and helped them join in community. I still enjoy hosting people in this home, and I am now able to share it, so other people can gather with loved ones and make memories here.

Great House; great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

"The Batchelor Pad" was a great place to stay. We had 7 people and needed 4 bedrooms, and this house exceeded our expectations. It was comfortable and very well appointed in every way. The outside patio was comfortable and the sport courts were a big hit. I think the remodel was well thought out and fits the needs of anyone who might like the comfort of staying in a house...much better than a hotel with that many people...and much better visiting time. Thank you to David and Rachel for making our time there so great.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Bachelor Pad was perfect. We were there for my daughter’s wedding. It was wonderful for our family to be able to stay together. Everything was clean. I cannot think of a thing that wasn’t perfect. I highly recommend it!

The property was spacious and clean and had many areas for a group of 10 to gather.

  • 4 of 5

The owners and property were above average and we enjoyed our girl’s reunion in Waco. If there were any negatives, it would be that the third bath was not on the side of the house with the den area. That said, it caused no problems, there were accommodations for all. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Amazingly Wonderful!

Our stay at the Bachelor Pad was amazing! The accommodations and access were very convenient and went way beyond our expectations. We found that David & Rachel were easy to contact and any questions were answered very quickly. They were so friendly and helpful, making them fabulous hosts! We highly recommend this property and we loved the "Waco Tour". It completed our Waco-Magnolia Experience!!!

We loved the space to hang out when we were at the property! Went and met David the following day after our arrival, he’s very kind and personable. Would recommend this property to others!
