This residence is part of the Home Collection-Charlotte's Boutique Furnished Residences.
One of the best, most walkable locations in Charlotte!
Convenient second-floor apartment with off-street parking. Located on a quiet, tree-lined residential street in the Historic District of Dilworth, 1.5 miles from the central business district (Uptown), you'll be able to walk to 3 parks, two full-service grocery stores, a health-food market, 40+ restaurants from casual to fine dining (including raw/vegan, Indian, 3 Thai restaurants, Italian, burgers/pizza, sushi, etc.) wine shop, wine bar, yoga and massage studios, coffee shops, art galleries, consignment shops, neighborhood pubs and other amenities.
A transit stop 1/2 block away provides bus service directly to Uptown and SouthPark (upscale shopping) every 15 minutes. The light rail stop to Uptown is only a 15-minute walk away. Carolinas Medical Center is 4 minutes away by car, or an easy 15-20 minute walk.
This super-comfortable, spotlessly clean, quiet, large one-bedroom apartment is in a historic 8-plex apartment building that we own, built in 1920, and has been completely remodeled with attention to all the details. High ceilings, refinished original hardwood floors, original 2-panel doors with glass door knobs help the apartment maintain its original character. It is furnished in an updated traditional style with modern flair, with an emphasis on comfort.
One of the best features is the large balcony, overlooking the front lawn, which provides a comfortable outdoor living and dining area to take advantage of Charlotte's wonderful climate, whether for breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening.
We've recently undertaken a complete GREEN renovation on the building, including dual- pane windows, high efficiency HVAC, energy efficient lighting, dual-flush toilets, ceiling fans, tankless water heaters and new insulation for comfort.
In the fully-equipped kitchen there are brand new cabinets, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range and refrigerator with ice maker. A washer and dryer are also included in the apartment for your use. There is a desk, wifi, and stereo with a place for your Ipod or MP3 player, a large flat screen television in the living room and a smaller one in the bedroom.
400-thread-count linens are provided for the King size bed, and there is a double sofa sleeper if you have guests. An abundance of thick thirsty towels are provided as well.
The grounds are well-landscaped with native and drought tolerant plantings. You'll feel safe and secure, with keyed access required for both the building entrance and the apartment.
Most of our guests are repeat clients who book in advance, so please book early. We think we've thought of everything you'll need for your visit, but if not, we live right around the corner so can help with anything you might need.
I'm a native Charlottean, so am happy to provide any help during your stay, including restaurant suggestions, art openings, events, etc. Just ask! You'll love living like a local. We look forward to hosting you.
Check in time is 3pm, check out time is 11am.
Well-behaved pets welcomed with prior notice and pet fee.
Convenient access to the property is provided via a combination lockbox which holds the keys to the building and to the apartment. The combination to the lockbox is provided when reservation is confirmed.
Our guests are professionals who enjoy quiet surroundings and a restful night's sleep, so our accommodations aren't suited for those up late at night.
Please note: rates include 15.25% sales and occupancy tax as required by state and local law.
We look forward to hosting you!
The location of the apartment was ideal-very cute neighborhood close to everything. The apartment itself was well maintained and there were so many goodies there to enjoy! I would stay there again without hesitation.
We loved the little care package, and the bright, clean apartment. We didn't get to meet either Jim or James, though we texted briefly with their assistant. In truth, though, even that wasn't needed; our instructions for apartment access were clear and concise, and the apartment had virtually everything we could've asked for. (Much hilarity when we discovered that the closet contained -- among other things -- a Scrabble set!)
I stayed in this apartment last Dececmber and loved it so much that I returned this summer. Fabulous hosts, eclectic and unique furnishings, wonderful location-- check it out!
Jim and James are the consummate hosts, from the moment you arrive until the time you leave, you know that they are there for you or one of the staff is. They also are just amazingly beautiful, wonderful guys and their accommodations reflect that, We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, eating at Luna's and then coming home to a very homey, happy apartment. It helped us relax.
Additional reasons that I think they are the best: 1) I arrived with a car full of very heavy bags and Jim, carried almost every single item up two flights if stairs, with kindness and grace. 2) I have so many allergies and when I told them I couldn't use their lovely down bedding...James rushed right out and bought some non down bedding for me and graciously made the bed himself in once again a very kindly manner. How can you help but love guys like that! We'll be back! Btw, saw their posh Queens condos very nice and romantic.
More than we expected! These guys have set such a high standard for providing lovely accomodations. From complimentary grocery items to laundry detergent, it's as if they thought of every detail to make it your "home away from home." Simply the best.
I highly recommend staying at this apartment in Dilworth. The location, decor and hospitality are superb once again!
I stayed here for one week while working in Charlotte and had a great experience with staying at Jim and Jame's place! It's almost impossible to find somewhere that feels like home while traveling with work, but the Dilworth Apt had everything from home and more. Not only that, but Jim and Jame's pet friendly attitude allowed for me to bring along my golden retriever. Great place, great stay, and I highly recommend it!

My husband James and I travel extensively and prefer staying in apartments rather than hotels when we travel. Upon our return from a month renting a great place in Istanbul last summer, we decided to offer some of our properties here on airbnb! We are Green Developers (see our latest LEED-certified project (website hidden)) who enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to our fair city. I'm a native Charlottean so can help provide a true local's perspective during your visit. Our clean and comfortable properties are located near Uptown Charlotte, in very walkable and safe neighborhoods. We try our best to provide a true home away from home. Thanks in advance for your interest and we look forward to hosting you. Jim and James
