The Space

This residence is part of the Home Collection-Charlotte's Boutique Furnished Residences.

One of the best, most walkable locations in Charlotte! Convenient ground-floor apartment with off-street parking. 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.

Perhaps the best feature is the large private screened porch, overlooking the front lawn, which provides a comfortable and mosquito-free 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 (email hidden) 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, a printer, wifi, and a small stereo cd player 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 Egyptian cotton towels are provided as well.

The ground-floor apartment has a reserved parking space, an outdoor patio with gas grill, recycling facilities and composting. The grounds are well-landscaped with native and drought tolerant plantings. You'll feel safe and secure, with keyed access required for both the main 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. The apartment comes stocked with a complimentary assortment of food, snacks, wine, etc. 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.

  • My husband and I spent a week at Jim and James' lovely, well stocked apartment in the Dilworth section of Charlotte. Great walking neighborhood! The apartment was well stocked, had comfortable seating, nice king size bed and wireless! I highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a convenient, clean and comfortable place to stay in Charlotte! Betsy and Terry Taylor, Monroe MI

  • We are more than pleased with our stay at Jim and James's place in charlotte. The place had more than enough provisions to make us feel right at home. The kitchen was super nice with updated appliances and cookware. We enjoyed the screened in porch and the neighborhood was beautiful! We were greeted with a nice array of thoughtful goodies and helpful tidbits about the house and the goings on about town. Jim and James were extremely helpful in recommending places for dinner and fun around charlotte. We were able to use the two bikes at the property and bike to a Pathers game downtown. James even filled up our tires before we started the trek. The place is just as is described. Very cozy and lovely. Well definitely stay at one of Jim and James's remodels ASAP!

The apartment was super clean. Any questions or concerns I had was quickly answered and resolved by the host. I will DEFINITELY stay in this property again.
    I had a great 4 nights and will be a return customer for sure.
    Thank You Jim and James!

  • Always a wonderful stay at the Home Collection. It is beautifully decorated and completely stocked with everything you may need. They leave a lovely goodie basket for you upon your arrival to enjoy. I highly recommend staying here if you are heading to Charlotte.

  • (email hidden) to stay. Everything you would need is in the apartment. Very very clean and decorated nicely. Would definitely recommend Jim and James' apartments. They even left goodies!

  • Beautiful apartment with all the comforts of home. Jim was a very generous host who left lots of goodies for tired travelers. Would recommend it very highly and we may return next year.

  • It was love at first sight with Jim and James' apartment. It looked like a place I would want to live in. There was a tray of fresh fruit, pasta and sauce, microwave popcorn, English muffins and cookies on the table when I arrived. The refrigerator had orange juice and white wine. Red wines were available on the wall. There was coffee by the coffee maker. The bath towels were thick and luxurious. The bed was comfortable. I had everything I needed and if I needed more, all I had to do was ask. James provided me with a computer (his Mom's laptop--thank you, Luna!) and a printer. Before I arrived Jim e-mailed me with a map and directions from the airport to the apartment and a list of several restaurants and stores in the area. If you vacation in Charlotte, this is the place to stay.

  • The entire experience was amazing! Starting with the warm and wonderful emails I received with directions and maps of the area to the personal thank you and a handshake when we were heading back to the airport...

    Everything about our stay in Charlotte was made better because of staying here. Here are some high points:
    1. The central location made it easy to get around
    2. The family friendly neighborhood made for nice evening walks
    3. Proximity to parks and playgrounds was awesome for my 18 month old son.

    But the best part was coming "home" at night to a wonderful environment! Thank you for providing my (email hidden) to stay!

  • I stay in hotels all the time. This time I thought I would try something new. Staying at the Dilworth 1920's apartment was a wonderful experience. Upon arrival, the place felt like you were at home. The hosts left lots of special extras to make your stay enjoyable. The kitchen was fully equipped to make a good dinner which I enjoyed while sitting out on the screened porch. If you are looking (email hidden) to stay with all the features of home, I would recommend staying here.

  • We just came back from staying at Jim and James' beautifil appartment located in the very trendy area of Dilworth, NC. My husband and I loved the appartment!! Actually, the pictures don't even reflect the beauty of the place. It is far more beautiful in reality. We enjoyed everything about our stay. The appartment is very clean and our hosts are the best. They thought about all the single details that would make you feel that you are having a "celebrity treatment" :-)
    We got in very late the first day and we found some delicious pasta sauce and spaghetti on the table which we used for dinner. If we were to go back in NC we'd love to stay there again!! We'd recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat!

My husband James and I travel extensively and prefer staying in apartments rather than hotels when we travel. Upon our return from a month (email hidden) 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
