About the property

This 2,700SQ Foot Home Is Located Within 2Miles Of Major Shopping & Dining.

This Beautiful Home features Four (4) Bedrooms with a Movie Room/Game Room, Two Living Areas, and Two (2) Dining Areas, or the Formal Living/Dining Area can be used just for dining.

The Massive Family Room is perfect for gathering with Friends or Family during your Annual Gatherings. It Boasts a Romantic Corner Fireplace, to keep you cozy in the colder months, and 3 windows that look out onto the back yard, which has beautiful Pink Crepe Myrtle Trees, lining the back yard fence. They produce quite a beautiful floral show during the summer and fall months.

The Front Entrance boasts the perfect dining room, for gathering for a large dinner, with everyone at one table. This creates the perfect atmosphere to photograph everyone as you create memories to last a lifetime. The dining area can also be used as a gathering place to play board games or card games with the group that you are traveling with. I have supplied a tablecloth, to cover the wood table, for such occasions. Natural Wood is less forgiving of scratches and nicks, so to ensure that each guest is able to enjoy the beauty of the real wood, throughout the home, we ask that it be protected with tablecloths, placemats, and coasters, as needed.

The Master Suite Boasts a Large Bedroom, with a King Size Bed and a Full Bath and Shower. It is located at the back of the home, for extra added privacy.

The Second Bedroom has a Queen Size Bed.

The Third Bedroom has a Full Size Bed.

The Fourth Bedroom Has Two Twin Size Beds.

There is a Full Guest Bath upstairs and a Powder Bath downstairs.

There is a fully equipped Laundry room, with an LG Washer and Dryer, for those who are staying more than one day, and may need access to laundry facilities.

There is an eat-in kitchen, with room to gather, and cook and entertain together. There is also a patio set on the back patio, for those who enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea, while the birds serenade them, in the morning. There is also a fire pit, for which we provide a complimentary block of wood, for each guest.

This property is less than two miles from the Round Rock Outlet Mall, Ikea, Ross, JC Penney, H.E.B. Grocery Store, TGIF and many other businesses and eateries.

While we feel that this is already a beautiful home, we are continuously in the improvement stages. I was in the Quality Assurance field for 20 years, so I believe in having the current quality match the current price. We have relaxed the rental rate until we are able to replace the carpet on the second floor, with wood or tile flooring. So be sure to take advantage of the reduced cost, by booking ahead, to lock in the lower rates.

The MBA is eager to accommodate your next vacation.

About Mattie B. Allen

Hello Travelers,

My name is Mattie Allen. I currently reside in Round Rock, Texas. I was born in a small town in Missouri, called Sikeston, where you can find Lambert's Cafe, "The Home of the Throwed [sic] Rolls."

I attended Sikeston Senior High School, where our school mascot was The Bulldog.

I have rented our home out for the past 4 years, on a yearly lease. The experience has been invaluable. I have decided that while I finish working on two Business Degrees, it would be more conducive to enter into the Vacation Rentals venture, so that I can focus on continuing my education, which is something that I put on hold while my husband was in the military and doing multiple tours to war zones.

I am looking forward to meeting many great people, while providing a service that will make you feel at home, while you are traveling.

Mattie B. Allen purchased this house in 1999

Why Mattie B. Allen chose Meadow Lake

When we purchased this property fifteen years ago, we were about the 5th house in the neighborhood. It has grown quite a bit over the years, but what I like most about the property, is that it is located in one of the most safe cities in America.

Round Rock, TX was recently ranked the #8 safest city in America, amongst cities with populations of 100,000 or more.

What makes this house unique

What I have always loved most about this property is the open floor plan. It is perfect for congregating as well as for relaxing.

It has amazing curb appeal, which begins as you enter the walkway, to find a french bistro set, conveniently situated next to a beautiful 3-arm lamp post, and an elegant purple flowering plant.

It is also flanked by 5 Oak trees, which provide an abundance of shade, during those hot Texas summer months, and if you visit in the spring, you will enjoy the harvest of the wonderfully delicious Japanese Loquat tree, which produces the some of the sweetest orange plums on earth, and a highly perfumed flowering bloom, just before the plums make their appearance. These are a very expensive fruit, which you are invited to harvest during your stay.

The Laminate Flooring throughout the First floor, keeps you in touch with nature and its ability to provide us with comfort and beauty.

The ability to view the Front Yard, as well as the Back Yard from the Family room is also a wonderful convenience, if you have children, or if you have guests dropping by unannounced.

You have found the perfect vacation rental at The MBA. Everyone who walks through the doors, has expressed a feeling of extreme peace. I am confident that you will experience it too.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house. We accommodated some of our wedding guests here. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful decor, space and amenities. Mattie was a good host. She even brought us water and snacks and allowed our request for a late checkout time. Overall a good stay!

Gorgeous, inviting home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home and all the little touches, not to mention the kitchen gadgets and the back yard retreat. The owner used to welcome us such as snacks, muffins, bottled water, the lights on when we arrived. We also enjoyed it being in close proximity to shopping and restaurants. We would stay here again.

Great Job!

  • 4 of 5

One of the most important things for us is comfortable beds. The master suite and one room with a queen was excellent. The rest need attention. An easy fix. We had an issue with the 1/2 bath and Mattie handled it promptly. The house is equipped very well with the exception of towels. Could use more. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would love to stay here again.

Owner's Response: It was nice being able to sit down and chat with Ray. We were called to the house because there seemed to be a problem with getting the toilet to flush. I had a plumber to come over and he verified that the plumbing is fine, but that too much paper was being used in the toilet. It is a High Efficiency toilet which was installed about one year ago. There is a button for liquid waste and a button for solid waste. If the solid waste button is not used when necessary, it might present some difficulty in the first flush. We did not receive any details on the problem that Ray was having, so we are not sure if too much paper, or the wrong button was used, but we were happy to have the plumber there, while he was there, to verify that there is no issue with our plumbing line. It is recommended that there be one towel per guest, in vacation rentals, where washers and dryers are available. Ray was traveling with four guests. I left a total of 13 sets of towels, which included 13 Face Towels, 13 Hand Towels, and 13 Bath Towels, for Ray's group. I am sorry that the amount of towels did not meet Ray's expectations. Ray Mentioned that he and his guests prefer Firm beds. I have taken that into consideration, and am currently putting together a market research, involving returning customers and first time customers, to find out, whether soft or firm, is the most desired. Thank you Ray for all of your valuable feedback and thank you for reviewing my property.

Mattie's house was perfect for our family gathering!!! Everyone talked about how comfortable it was. We loved sitting in the family room, enjoying sitting on the couch/recliners and visiting! Two eating areas made it so convenient for our family celebrations. We had a fire outside and loved sitting around the fire pit. I hope we have another family gathering when we can use the backyard barbecue qrill and the great outside area. It's a beautiful house!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My family kept complimenting me on finding this incredible house. Mattie was very kind to check on us during our stay.
