Wonderful welcoming home in the heart of a fantastic neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and we met my parents for a celebration weekend. Cathy's house could not have been more perfect. The house was entirely comfortable and we were made to feel so welcome by all her artistic touches. The front porch is perfect for visiting, reading or dreaming. I took many great walks. I feel so lucky we got to stay here! It was truly a home away from home.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A girls' trip along with birthday and retirement celebrations brought six best friends to Birmingham. The minute we walked through the door we were thrilled with Cathy's home. Honestly, we instantly felt at home. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything you could possibly need and more, the outdoor space was lovely, a cozy living room where we all sat and talked and talked with a fire in the fireplace and the home was convenient to great restaurants, shops, grocery stores, etc. I'll be visiting Birmingham a lot over the next couple of years and will definitely book this beautiful home again. Loved it!

Beautiful home!!

We were a group of 5 ladies in town for a function in Montevallo. Cathy's house is gorgeous with restaurants within walking distance. Book this place before someone takes your dates!

Charming, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in Cathy's home while we toured the area. All of the amenities of home and then some! Her home is lovely and beautifully decorated. Fully stocked kitchen, bathrooms with shampoo and soap. I especially enjoyed waking up each morning to the beautiful view of her backyard. Our younger son loved sleeping in the "man-cave" with chalk-board walls and large-screen TV with Netflix. Street parking was never an issue. Avondale has great restaurants - highly recommend Silvertron Cafe, Rowe's Service Station and Saw's Soul Shack. Her home is a 10-minute drive to Birmingham. Easily accessible to interstate highways to Huntsville (U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Selma, and Montgomery (Civil Rights sites) for our tour of the area. We'll definitely book again if our travels take us back to B'ham!
