About Charmaine Hooper
I am an ex pro soccer player who represented Canada on the national team for all of 2 decades. After soccer, I found myself being drawn toward real estate and hospitality. Very strange, since I studied neither during my 5 years at North Carolina State University, in Raleigh. I work a lot with kids. That might explain why the home is kid friendly. In whatever spare time I have, I volunteer at Meals on Wheels in Waco.
Charmaine Hooper purchased this House in 2011
Why Charmaine Hooper chose Waco
We were so attracted to this property simply because of its beauty, character and great bones. It has undergone an incredible transformation, thanks to the HGTV stars of Fixer Upper. I had no intentions of being on a TV show and definitely neither did my husband. This house had been transformed from "crappy to happy" in a matter of a very short period of time and the fact that the home is located only 7 min. from Baylor University and only 5 minutes to the Silos and downtown makes it a great place to stay for any events around town.
What makes this House unique
Upon entering the home, one gets a sense of a comfortable home away from home with the open kitchen and dining area, perfect gathering place for everyone while the chef creates. The 5 bedrooms make it possible for large groups to stay together in the same place at a fraction of the cost of hotel rooms. There is also a garage apartment which is also available for smaller groups of 1-5, at a reduced rate, if rented alone, offering an extra two bedrooms with a sleeper sofa in the living room and one and a half bathrooms. Just contact the owner to find out about availability. The house and guest house can also be rented together if available. The wrap around porch is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the day in the early morning or late afternoon. Also, the open grassy area makes it possible to play ball or have a party. Check in is 3pm and check out is 11am the latest. Please check with the owner first to see if an earlier check in or later check out times are available for your specified dates. . The outdoor green space as well as the play area for kids makes it an all round great place to stay.

Lots of character and a lovely home for a
girls weekend In Waco, TX.
Charmaine was the perfect Hostess:)
Great for a family get-together
For a family get-together, this lovely home was so much better than a hotel/motel, as we were all together in one house. It was fun to spend the night in a "fixer-upper" with all the trademarks of shiplap walls, custom-made dining table, open-bulb light fixtures, and the rest . We had lots of room, and the beds were all super comfortable. Charmaine was helpful every step of the way. Thanks!
Great family weekend
Our family had a lovely time gathering in this home for the weekend!
A meaningful Waco experience.
We loved the communication with Charmaine and seeing the property in person after having watched the show. The home was just so warm and welcoming - we felt like honored guests! It was the perfect get away for this group of high school girlfriends who are now mid-forties!
The house was amazing. Charmaine was an excellent host and made booking and meeting our every need perfect. I've rented a lot of houses and Charmaine was the easiest to communicate with and prepare for our trip.
This house is so much fun! It’s a beautiful property and we had a blast staying in a house renovated by Chip and Jo. The location was close to everything and you could get anywhere in 10-15 min. Charmaine was an awesome host and very communicative. She was also super thoughtful leaving us a sweet note, welcome chocolates and some bottles of water! We had a fabulous stay in Waco!
