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. 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 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. Please check with the owner about pets. 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 4pm and check out is 11am the latest. Please check with the owner first to see if early check in or late check out is available for your specified dates.

Fabulous, fun place!
The hosts were amazing to work with and the house was clean and comfortable!
Cozy and quaint
My family girls trip stayed comfortably with 8, very hospitable owner had the Christmas Tree and lights on for us when we arrived at night! We had plenty of room, bathrooms were comfortable and the large kitchen and openness was great to all be together. Highly recommend
It is a beautiful home that holds a ton of people easily.
This is a great house to stay and and Charmaine is amazing. She replies to texts rapidly and checks in on her guests. The home is beautiful and has everything that you need to stay comfortably. The one and only negative that I have is that each night there was LOUD music playing in the neighborhood until well after midnight.
We had a wonderful time enjoying Waco sights
The kitchen was beautiful and spacious! Charmaine was very helpful and quick to answer any questions we had about the house. A nice surprise was bottled water in the fridge and chocolates as we arrived!
The Gorman House in Waco, Texas was the perfect home away from home for our family ! We loved it !
The Gorman House is simply gorgeous ! It is beautifully decorated and the home's owner, Charmaine, has added many special touches to make the guest's visit comfortable.
The home is spacious and perfect for a large gathering or for small family gatherings. We are a family of five, and we each had a comfortable and spacious bedroom and bath. The home has beautiful gathering spaces and a well appointed kitchen, too.
Charmaine, the owner, is gracious and caring of the guest's needs. She was the picture of true hospitality.
We agreed as a family, that we wanted to come back and stay in the Gorman House again !!
Thank you, Charmaine !!!!
5 ladies had a wonderful weekend in this beautiful house. It had everything we needed for cooking and relaxing. The owner had thought of everything.
Cameron Park Zoo is 10 min. away. Antioch Church is 3 blocks away at Waco Dr. and 20th street. There is a wonderful Mexican restaurant 3 min away at 25th and Waco Dr. The courthouse is 5 min away on the corner of Washington and 5th street and the County District Clerk's office is across 5th street. Also, the Waco convention is 2 min from the courthouse at 100 Washington Ave. Not to mention, Spice Village.
