About This Listing
Amazing sunlight-filled house in South Austin. Two bedrooms with super comfy queen-sized beds, an office, a yoga room, an incredible sun room, and a beautiful backyard.
Amazing sunlight-filled house in South Austin. Two bedrooms with queen-sized beds, an office, a yoga room, an incredible sun room, and a beautiful backyard. This house just feels good - the natural light inside and the great patio and chiminea in the backyard make it a great retreat. Wireless internet, and AppleTV, but no actual cable here. We're big on records and vintage record players and you'll find a pretty extensive collection of vinyl here that you're welcome to listen to. You're just a few minutes away from the shops on South Congress, and a 10-15 minute drive from downtown. Parking here is easy, two cars fit in the driveway and street parking is totally safe here, too. If you have more than four people staying, we have two sofabeds in addition to the proper beds to accommodate more guests.
There's a washer/dryer you're welcome to use. And we're a family friendly house, so feel free to bring the kids!
No smoking in the house, please. If you have any questions, just call!
I absolutely loved my stay at Charlie's and this is my second time here. It's a lot more spacious than described and this house is my number one choice when staying in Austin because of the location and the atmosphere. One thing that made me feel really welcome here was seeing the thank-you cards sprinkled around the house by other guests and it's really just a cozy feel overall. The listing description and photos do not do the house justice on what my experience actually was and it was perfect for my group for both stays because there were musical instruments around as well as a GREAT space to play board games (yes yes, we came all the way to Austin to play board games.. hehe). The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and I actually really like the backyard which had a tranquil and rustic feel to it.
In summary, Charlie is a great and easy host, the house is beautiful and spacious, and the distance is perfect to downtown Austin since we only had to drive 10 minutes to the hotspots and never had to deal with traffic. I recommend this location to all my friends who are looking for a place to stay in Austin. THANKS AGAIN, CHARLIE!!
Charlie Faye made us feel very welcome. She made her house and her music available. She even gave us two of her CD's as a welcoming present. She is a fantastic artist. Her LP collection brought back many memories.
The Airbnb description of the house was very accurate.
The neighborhood was very pleasant. Her driveway was huge. It could have fit 4 cars. There was also plenty of room to park on the street. The house was private and the neighbors were not a problem.
The backyard was large and private.
My family enjoyed the house, Austin, and the people of Texas. Everyone was extremely friendly. We will be back.
This was our first time to Austin, and we were so grateful for Charlie's accommodations. The house was clean, exactly how it was described, and to top it off, were filled with things we all personally love: records, record players, books, a great back patio, and a comfortable space. Charlie kept in touch via text and even gave a wonderful recommendation to her masseuse. The house was located in a great cool area just a convenient short drive to ACL, and great local restaurants. We all really enjoyed our stay and will definitely get in touch with Charlie again next time we need a place to stay in Austin!
Charlie was very welcoming and easy to work with. Her house was perfect for our family gathering in Austin, convenient location to downtown and south Austin. Lovely home with plenty of space. Thanks for letting use your home Charlie.
Charlie was a welcoming host and always quick to respond to questions. The house was comfortable and a nice place to stay during our visit to Austin.
