I have stayed at 3 different airbnb's in Charlotte and this was by far the best one. Amazing hosts. They contacted me before I left Florida to check on me and my family on how we were doing. Hosts left water bottles, sodas and necessities in the fridge for us. Couldn't have been any better. I would recommend this place to every family coming to Charlotte.

We booked this place for a mini family reunion for 11- including ssenior citizens and 2 teenagers and 2 under 12. There was space for everyone to spread out and not be in each other's way, yet it was cozy enough for late night conversations and guitar by the fireplace. The hosts were very responsive. The home was clean, uncluttered- exactly as pictured. The hosts anticipated our every need and then some and made our weekend very relaxing. We stayed mostly at the house and cooked severa meals and we had everything we needed. We did venture to NASCAR Hall of Fame, the airport and IKEA- all quick and easy to get to from the house.

The home was clean, comfortable and quiet. As a traveling chef the kitchen was equipped very well with all necessary tools. Plenty of bath towels, beautiful decor inside the home. We enjoyed ourselves very much! 5 stars across the board!

You will not be disappointed with this home! We celebrated my sons 24th birthday in Charlotte and although the house was a bit of a drive to some restaurants and breweries it was well worth it! So comfortable and beautiful with such character and charm!

Lennox and Lauren were very willing to work with our large group throughout the duration of our stay. The house was a great fit for our group and we really felt like Lennox and Lauren were within reach whenever we needed anything. Our group highly recommends this space for groups who are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to spend time with a close knit group of their community. Lennox and Lauren were easily reachable and made communication easy.

Lennox & Lauren User ProfileLennox & Lauren is a superhost.

As of June 2017, we'll be what I call veteran Airbnb hosts with roughly 5 years experience. Over that time we've hosted 100's of guests and made many friends along the way. From a lovely Japanese family whose grandfather read the paper on our front porch every morning to a corporate manager of Shake Shack who stayed with us for a grand opening of a new location. During that time our most important lesson would be... The small things matter - attention to detail means everything. We'd love the chance to host you!
