Considering the fact that you are very active empty nesters, I would highly recommend the Twin Rivers subdivision in Woodway. That is a great neighborhood that has a community pool,club house, sidewalks, tennis courts, adjacent to a golf course and within minutes of shopping and restaurants. The homes are anywhere from 2500 - 3000 square feet. Many have recent upgrades such as hardwood floors, granite counter tops, upgraded fixtures. The majority of the homes are owner occupied but I do know that there are several currently being leased. If you have any questions about Twin Rivers, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to assist you in your search.
Welcome to Waco,

It just depends on what your preferences are! There are many great suburbs of Waco that offer close proximity to shopping and restaurants. You may look to Hewitt and Woodway for options here. In Waco proper, many people prefer the Mountainview area, the Lake Shore area, and Castle Heights or Dean Highland.
I have a few homes that may well suit you if you'd like to speak about options.
Good luck with your search!
