Green Door Lofts-Tuna Loft, Silos/Downtown

Located in: Waco
Green Door Lofts, also known as "Funky Town" as coined by Chip on Fixer Upper "Urban Loft Challenge", is a 9 unit luxury loft complex in the heart of Waco's bustling Silo District. We are next door to the historic Hippodrome Dinner Theater and steps away from eclectic shops, antique stores, wine tasting rooms, and live music. Magnolia Market is an easy walk away, or take the free trolley that stops outside. Each loft is crafted with a unique flair and offers a distinct experience.
The Space:
The Tuna Loft gets its name from a five foot tuna sculpture suspended from the high rafters in the living room. This artwork (debatable) catches your eye as you enter the loft. Large windows overlook downtown Waco's most popular avenue, a tree-lined street filled with people enjoying the sights and sounds of the city. Skylights bathe the living room in natural light, making it the perfect place to relax. The master bedroom boasts a king-sized bed with high quality, pressed, triple-sheeted linens. In the living room there is a trifold, queen-sized Murphy bed. The loft has an in-unit washer/dryer. Guests will also love the fully-equipped kitchen, complete with coffee and tea. Entertainment includes a large screen SmartTV with Direct TV/Netflix and Phillips Hue lighting to help set the mood for any occasion.
Guest Access:
The building's courtyard has a seasonallyHEATED POOL with lounge chairs and tables. The mezzanine deck overlooks the avenue below - perfect for people watching!
Interaction with Guests:
A unique code for keyless entry makes check-in and check-out flexible and convenient. The owner lives on-site and can be reached by cell phone any time. We're happy to provide suggestions for local eateries and activities, in addition to the loft's information guide.
The Neighborhood:
Green Door Lofts gets its name from the famous green door that welcomes residents into the courtyard. This 9 unit complex is located on a trendy street that links the historic old homes of Waco with the parks along the Brazos River. Next door is the iconic Waco Hippodrome, where you can grab dinner and an adult beverage while watching a play, concert, or show. Waco’s free trolley stops in front of the loft before continuing to the Silos and other downtown shops.

A few blocks away is Cameron Park, a 416-acre stretch of land with hike and bike trails and the Waco Zoo. We are also located within five minutes of Baylor's McLane Stadium. On game days, Baylor’s free shuttle that runs between downtown and the stadium is only a couple blocks away.
Getting Around:
Downtown Waco has plenty of free street parking and Ubers are readily available. The loft is walking distance to shops and restaurants. We have our own secured garage in the building.
Other Things to Note:
This loft overlooks an avenue in the heart of the city's shopping and entertainment district so noise may be heard inside the living room. The bedroom is interior and very quiet with the door closed. A white noise machine is available in the unit, if needed. The Tuna Loft is a bit larger than my other one bedroom lofts, the Retro and Urban Cowboy however I do find that if 3 or 4 adults are sharing the room you might find the Retro or Urban Cowboy better suited due to noise considerations in the living area, especially Thursday- Saturday. Even so this is not terrible and people have not mentioned this. I am just being particular!

If more space is needed, consider the Magnolia Loft, 2/2 sleeps 6, or Bo Ho Loft, 2/2 sleeps 4 with privacy. The first floor Stained Glass Loft 3/2, sleeps 8.

The Tuna Loft is on the second floor and accessed only by stairs. If this is an issue, please consider our 3 bedroom listing on the first floor.

House Rules:
• No smoking
• No pets
• No parties or events
• Check-in is 3:00 PM - 12:00 AM
