About This Listing
Cozy 1br in the historic Dilworth neighborhood, one of Charlotte's most walkable neighborhoods.
This residence is part of The Home Collection-Charlotte's Boutique Furnished Residences.
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 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, 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.
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.
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.
No smoking. Our minimum is a 3-night stay. Well-behaved pets welcomed with pet fee.
Due to our location on a quiet residential street, we cater to guests seeking a restful night's sleep, so our accommodations are not suited for those up late at night.
I AirBnb all over the place , and have never had such a great experience as I had with Jim and James in Magnolia 5. From the quick response time , to the east check in, and all the little things that make so special.
Knowing they think of you as a traveler coming in to a new place , they left breakfast stuff for the Am, and a meal if you where hungry and didn't get a chance to go to the grocery store! And a couple bottles of wine.
Wish more AirBnbs where run with this type of hospitality ..
The apartment was great. We walked into to find a nice note and some goodies to tide us over until we could get to the grocery store. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. We walked every morning throughout the area. We would stay here again without hesitation!
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!
Your apartment was comfortable and all the amenities listed. I really liked the Dilworth neighborhood and its close proximity to all described in Jim and James description. 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.

About the Host, Jim And James
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
