I'm a 30-something professional musician and writer who grew up in NYC and now lives in Austin, TX. I'm big on yoga, healthy food, and of course music.
Charlie's place was great! it had more than enough room for the four of us to stay. The house was very clean and I wouldn't give it a second thought about staying again.
The location was perfect for us. everything we wanted to go was only a short little drive.
Also, it was pretty nice having some records around to have some music going. pretty good selection, i might add.
Overall, I would definitely love to stay here again next time I decide to head to Austin.
Charlie was very kind, and her home was very, very spacious. Extra sheets were left on the couches-two of which are pull out beds, so there are 4 queen sized-beds total! Very easy access to other great spots in Austin. I would absolutely recommend this space.
Great comfortable home. 4 of us stayed with Charlie for the ACL fest and we all had more than enough room (could of comfortably fit 5 more people). Very cool decorated and not too far from downtown austin or south congress.
Great house overall - it felt like home for few days we spent there with my wife and daughter. Conveniently located not far from the airport and city's center. We would not hesitate to stay here again!
Charlie's house was extremely accommodating. My first thought when I had arrived was that it was much more spacious than I had originally assumed. Also waking up in the morning and seeing how 'sunlight-filled' it really was is incredible. It really added to the entire ambiance.
We have a few musician's in the group, and I don't think there was a quiet moment in the house with so many instruments there. We all felt quite at home.
I would highly recommend Charlie's house to anyone as she was extremely accommodating and responsive. I'd hope to be able to stay again someday.
A group of friends from various places converged in Austin using Charlies lovely abode for their girls weekend. A very extended long weekend at that. Someone was always at the piano or on the guitar. We sang and hung out together when not out on the town enjoying actual musicians perform. The massage therapist of the group brought her table and provided relaxation under the sun and gentle caressing of the breeze in the cozy backyard. The house is not far from the city, yet seemingly is in its own cozy world. When not engaged in activities, sunbathing by the river, walking the paths, eating gorgeous food and other Austin must dos, we rested comfortably in a place that felt like home.
Very comfortable, clean spacious house with a lot of charm. Quiet neighborhood less than 15 mins from downtown by car. Charlie was a great hostess...very accommodating to our schedule.
Charlie's place was great. The house was clean and ready for our stay. Although I never met Charlie in person she was always prompt in answering any questions.
We had a wonderful time in austin!... especially due to our comfortable accomodations. Felt like home in Charlie's place.
Very easy drive to dntn and centrally located to some of our other favorite neighborhoods.
The home was very clean and cozy. I arrived a little later than expected, but had no difficulty accessing the home. Staying in this home only added to my wonderful visit to Austin.
Charlie and her friends were wonderful guests. Easy to communicate with, appreciative, tidy. This was an all around perfect hosting scenario. Id recommend her to anyone and would welcome her back anytime.
Charlie was a great guest; kind, neat, quiet, and she left the place looking great. We would not only have her to stay again anytime, but would highly recommend her as a guest to anyone.
When I returned to my place last night after traveling I found it in excellent condition! Faye and Will have left my place in a well cared-for condition and even left some nice things to eat in the fridge (they seem to be good cooks! ;-) ) Plus Charlie has left me one of her CD's which I still have to listen to - what a sweetheart! The contact has been very nice and I wish I could have met them. I warmly recommend them as guests!
Very easy to contact and pleasant to speak with Charlie and her friend were great guests.
Really nice to have Charlie in town and staying at our Guesthouse. She treated our place with care, and we hope to see her again!
Charlie was an ideal guest, she left the house in wonderful shape and it was a pleasure to meet her. She's also a very talented musician!
Charlie is a great friend and a very thoughtful person. I have traveled with her extensively, and she is a great communicator, a really good listener, and a calm, friendly presence. She is the kind of person whose place I always feel at home in and who I would definitely trust my place to! She is self-sufficient and kind. If you want to hang out, she is an instant friend, but if you want to do your own thing, she can entertain herself. Oh, and she is a really great songwriter and singer. Definitely look up her music!
Charlie's cottage is charming and in a great location, plus she's a wonderful gal with a heart of gold. And fun books and cd's!
