Melissa and her husband were so welcoming and accommodating. The house is so nicely decorated and so well equipped! They personally welcomed us and showed us around the house. They have thought of anything, the kitchen had sufficient plates, silverware, etc. We have a 1.5 year old and they even had a brand new pack and play, kids dishes and silverware, and a high chair. The backyard is also wonderful! It has a swing, a fire pit, TV, covered area with tables and adorable lights. We enjoyed a fire and dinner outside during our stay. If you're looking for a rental that has it all and is very welcoming, you found it! Close to downtown Abilene and everything else. Don't hesitate to book at eleven09! We'll be back for sure
