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.

Our stay at “The Bachelor” 5 star Fixer Upper property was a dream come true that didn’t disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at “The Bachelor...” Mountainview property was beyond AMAZING and did not disappoint! It was definitely a 5 star experience we enjoyed as a family and will never forget. In fact, it was so enjoyable, we plan on making it a family tradition to periodically return to this fabulous property and city! This spacious, lavish home met all of our needs during our fun stay in Waco to celebrate my birthday. The design of the property allowed us to enjoy both family time as well as individual private time. We couldn’t have picked a better place to stay and felt sooo welcomed by the homeowner, who went above and beyond to track us down while we were out and about in Waco just to introduce himself and say hello! The kitchen, with those ohh sooo fabulous two islands, was well stocked with all the needed essentials. The backyard was huge, just pure paradise! Not many homes have both a volleyball and basketball court....INCREDIBLE!!

More importantly, there was just sooo much warmth and love sprinkled throughout this lovely home, which clearly confirmed we were right where God wanted us to be. Like Waco, this Mountainview home became our “happy place” and FAVORITE “HomeAway” from home and we’ll certainly be back!!!

By the way, on the very front end planning of your Waco trip, after you have booked The Bachelor Mountainview pad of course, you MUST secure a seat on the Waco-Tour, either by land or by water!! It’s truly entertaining and reveals all the wonderful hidden treasures Waco has to offer, which are many. You just can’t do Waco without it!!

This is an amazing property and exceeded our family's expectations! Can't stop smiling!

  • 5 of 5

Our family met at the The Two Island Bachelor pad to celebrate the wedding of our fourth son! This property ended up becoming " wedding central" for the groom's side of the weekend. Not only were we able to comfortably acomodate the needs of nine adults and four little ones, ages 5 years to 8 months, with this property but we also held the wedding rehearsal in the living room and had all of the groomsmen over to get ready in the large den. The home was more than adequately stocked with towels, anything kitchen and the most amazing backyard possible. Our grand kids would get up each morning and eat breakfast and head outside to play in the sand on the volleyball court, kick a ball or ride their bike out in front of the house. They did this still in their pajamas because they were so excited to get outside and play with their cousins! David and Rachel always responded promptly to my questions. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood and close to groceries and other Waco attractions. Thank yo for sharing this property with our family for such an important weekend!

Perfect for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here with a group of 11 people. The house is wonderfully laid out for relaxing with a large group. The two living spaces are fabulous and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom was fabulous! The owners were helpful and available when we had a question. I can't forget the backyard. It was so fun for our daughter to play outside with all of the fun things they have. I would love to stay here again and will definitely recommend it to everyone interested.

Bachelor Pad, the perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at a couple Fixer Upper homes on our Waco vacation and the Bachelor Pad completely blew us away!! Right away the house felt like home. The house was equipped with everything a person would need for their stay. The backyard was an athletes dream, with the lit up volleyball/basketball courts, plus there was a ping pong table and corn hole boards. It was also a pleasure meeting David and he was full of information on things to do in Waco and favorite places to eat around town. We will highly recommend staying at his home to our friends and family and would also enjoy staying there again on future trips to Waco. Thanks for having us!!!

Very comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a sisters' trip. It was very comfortable and roomy. The kitchen is stocked to the max. We enjoyed the sand volleyball court in the back and the rockers are fun on the patio. Owner is extremely accessible and easy to communicate with.
