What Our Guests Are Saying
Location can’t be beat!
Jim and James are impeccable hosts because they think of and take care of everything. The location can’t be beat, and you can easily walk to shops, bars, and restaurants. I would stay here again, and I will be recommending their rental to friends. It’s even pet friendly!”Marissa B.
What a great place to stay while you’re in Charlotte. This apartment is beautiful and the hosts were beyond helpful when it came to not only setting everything up but making sure that everything was ready for my stay. I would stay again here in a heartbeat.”Teresa S.
Home away from home!
I absolutely adored my hosts and the apartment! Jim and James went above and beyond to make sure that I had a comfortable stay during the month I was in Charlotte. The apartment has everything you could possibly need and the eclectic decor fit my personality to a tee. The location is perfect for access to almost anywhere in a half hour or less. I would highly recommend staying there and I can’t wait to return to one of their residences.”Rebecca (Bahrain)
Happy Labor Day
We had a great time in Charlotte! It was so nice to come home to a warm and inviting place each night where we could cook a good meal and relax as a family. Thanks so much to the wonderful hosts…it was a short but great weekend.”Suzanne (Florida)
Beautiful apartment tastefully furnished. We really enjoyed our stay. Quiet neighborhood, walking distance to shopping center. Highly recommended. Thank you Jim for your wonderful hospitality. The wine was perfect !!.”Sandrine (St. Thomas)
Jim and James are wonderful and the apartment is so nicely appointed, in a great neighborhood. Would definately stay again.” Carol (North Carolina) Carol (North Carolina)
Loved Myers Park!!
My photography team was out in North Carolina on business, there were 5 of us total and we all loved the place! We arrived to chilled wine, a tray of snacks and goodies and limes ready to be sliced for cocktails. Even a carton of half and half was stocked in the fridge for our morning coffee, no one ever thinks of that! 🙂 The hosts are incredibly accommodating and sweet. The building was tucked away off the street, and the parking lot in the back was convenient for us with all of our gear. Trader Joe’s was right nearby so we were able to make nice breakfasts and dinners when we didn’t want to venture out. Absolutely love the decor, love the sun room and the deck, the comfortable beds…everything was perfect! Highly recommend the place, next time I’m in town I will stay there or one of Jim’s other properties.”Mel B. (Brooklyn, NY)
The owners were wonderful! We were traveling with an infant and they went out of their way to help with accommodations for her (a high chair and pack n play). The condo is beautiful, well maintained and all of the pictures/descriptions are very accurate. We loved the sun room. It was very pretty and with the leaves changing colors it gave the effect of being in a tree house. We arrived to music playing and snacks in the kitchen. We had a great trip and would definitely stay there again.”Becky (Grayslake, IL)
ACC championship in charlotte
Great experience. Place was super nice and close to everything. They went out of their way to make everything awesome. The wine and scotch were totally clutch on top of everything else. Hopefully I’ll be given a reason to come back next year.”Henry (Chapin, SC)
Chris from WV
Awesome condo. Hosts are very gracious and provide starter items, snacks & drinks! Very relaxing and Clean. Great area for walks and even browsing the city. Thanks for a fun Christmas vacation.”Chris (Shepherdstown, WV)
Great place to stay!
I’m hesitant to brag too much because I want to make sure this unit is available next time I come to Charlotte. 🙂 The pictures are great but the unit is even better in person. The hospitality that Jim provided was outstanding. I definitely plan on returning as soon as I can get back.”J Lujan Loveless (Orlando, FL)
The …BEST… in Charlotte
This was my first visit to Charlotte and it would not have been the same if I had stayed elsewhere. It was a fantastic and unforgettable trip. James and Jim were very helpful in every way possible. The apartment was extremely nice, charming, and located in a beautiful historic part of town. Upon returning, I will definitely choose to rent from James and Jim before anyone else. (5 STARS)Jeremy (Birmingham, AL)
Two Thumbs Up!
We just came back from staying at Jim and James’ beautiful apartment located in the very trendy area of Dilworth, NC. My husband and I loved the apartment!! 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 apartment 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.”
Amy (Easton, PA)
Thanks for everything – we knocked on your door to say goodbye but you must have been out. We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated Lisa coming around to check on us. We loved the restaurants – The Comet Grill was great they even gave us a free glass as I asked them where to buy a fat tyre glass. We really like Charlotte and needed more time there – we slept a lot as we were really jet lagged. We loved the Dilworth area and we enjoyed walking around looking at the gardens and houses. We really liked the decoration of your apartment – stylish. We would have no hesitation in recommending this to others. Once again thanks for the attention to detail. Jan and Tony
Jan and Tony (Auckland, NZ)
The entire experience was amazing!
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 family a wonderful place to stay.”
JRS (Austin, TX)
Lovely apartment; thoughtful hosts
Why stay in a hotel in Charlotte when you can stay in one of Jim and James’ apartments? Super clean, awesome location (convenient to shops, bars, restaurants), and personal touches such as wine, biscuits, and other food waiting for us in the kitchen made this a 5 star rental! It was a magical get away and Jim and James went out of their way to make sure everything was taken care of and even provided us with a ton of recommendations within walking distance of the apartment. We would highly recommend this property to anyone needing a place to stay in Charlotte.”
Laura (North Carolina)
Anniversary Weekend & Christmas Shopping
Well I’m so pleased to share with you “this property is wonderful”. In a quaint and quiet neighborhood with every detail taken into consideration, from the fresh fruit, flat screen TVs, great wine with clean and fresh everything. Close to wonderful dining, great shopping with the beautiful historic district at your doorstep inviting you for a leisurely stroll for hours in a neighborhood that will make you feel at home away from home or enjoy a quite read on the deck or screened in porch. Our hosts could not have more accommodating in every respect of the word. Thank you! If you are looking for way to enjoy Charlotte, while having all the amenities of home you will pleased with this choice for lodging and more.”
The apartment was clean, comfortable and very homey. The owners, Jim and James, and their assistant Lisa were welcoming and wonderful hosts. I stayed for a full month and took many walks on the Dilworth/Southend area. It was a perfect location. I highly recommend this rental apartment and hope to stay there again on another visit to Charlotte.”
Cathy (Carlsbad, CA)
We really enjoyed staying at Jim and James’ Dilworth Apt. M4! It was truly spacious and bright, and it was very chic and comfortable. We found the apartment very relaxing and enjoyable, and won’t hesitate to stay there again next time we’re back in the Charlotte area. Jim and James were very accommodating hosts and when we arrived they had left us a tray full of food and treats and a fridge with essential items (half and half, butter, wine, etc.). We really appreciated this as we arrived without time to go to the grocery right away. I thought this was very thoughtful of them. The dishes and appliances were all in great shape and the kitchen was stocked with all essential items. The linens and towels were very comfortable, and the furniture was very nice. The air/heat worked well too. The area/neighborhood is great–we love Dilworth–lots of parks, restaurants, and some shops nearby. There is also off-street parking (2 spots) directly behind the apartment, which made things easy. I’d highly recommend this apartment if you are looking for an upscale yet comfortable home away from home.”

Convenient to Uptown, Light Rail
This was a great place to stay. As described, it is was bright and spacious. Location was perfect for my group of 4. We were about a 15 min walk to the light rail system that takes you directly into the city. We were in town for the Clemson/VT game, and the drive to the stadium was 5 minutes with all the traffic. The home was as described including a provided first dinner. We decided to make our own dinner the first night, and all of the pots and pans were provided to make a huge meal. Thanks for everything Jim.”
Perfect for families
Traveled to charlotte with 2 small children and this was a great and easy place to stay! Perfect for families and easy to get around town from this location. I can’t think of anything that i would change about the experience.”
Sarah (West Virginia)
Great place with wonderful hospitality!
The apartment was perfect and Jim and James were unbelievably kind and helpful in making our stay comfortable and fun. In town for work for the month of August, I brought my wife and two boys (5 years and 5 months). Jim and James had a changing table, crib, Pac N Play and toys ready and waiting. Whenever we had questions about things to do, restaurants, doctors, etc., they were right on the money with their recommendations. The apartment is located in a beautiful neighborhood, walking distance to everything you need. And if you want to head downtown for more entertainment and adventure, you can easily walk to the station and hop on the train for a short ride. Biking it downtown would also not be a problem. So go ahead and book your stay, you won’t be disappointed. We’ll be back. Thanks guys.”
Jason M. (Honolulu, HI)
Thanks for the warm hospitality!
Hi Jim and James, We really did enjoy our stay. Thanks for all the little extras, and for the recommendations of local places to go. I think we tried all of them! And Jesse and I really enjoyed our walks all around Dilworth.”
Lynne and Bob (New York)
HAD A GREAT TIME in a great neighborhood
We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to be close to downtown events.”
Mike (Fayetteville, NC)
Jim and James did everything they could to make our stay a comfortable one. The unit is well appointed and in a lovely walking neighborhood. Having food, snacks, and beverages provided was a pleasant surprise. A great place to stay in Charlotte! A nearby restauraunt, Fiamma’s, was a great find.”
Sue (Asheville, NC)
the most amazing apartment!
Lovely, spacious, perfectly clean, terrific location. Jim and James were perfect hosts – better than anything we could have expected. we felt so comfortable and at home, and they were available anytime for questions or recommendations. Their rentals make me wish we had occasion to visit charlotte more often.”
Julie (Durham, NC)
Thank you both SO much for our wonderful girls’ weekend! We love it here, we’re ready to move in! You guys have given us a new perspective on Charlotte.”
Ginger, Julie and Margery (Birmingham, AL)
I am beyond impressed with the place – I am a customer for life.”
Tim (Charlotte, NC)
This was a first for us! Jim was recommended to us by a realtor and we couldn’t have found a more welcoming person and home. The place was super clean and the beds were the most comfortable I’ve slept in in years. We recommend Jim and this place highly and hope to return one day.”
Stylish In-Town Living Apartment
I had a wonderful stay at the 2BR Stylish In-Town Living apartment. This is the second property of Jim’s that I have stayed at. Highly recommend his places. This place was very chic, as well as homey and comfortable. A great alternative to a hotel. Actually, I find there is no comparison and I would rather stay at Jim’s properties over a hotel.”
Cindy (Annapolis, MD)
Perfect Hotel Alternative
I was stranded in Charlotte without a hotel and was grateful to find this gem. The neighborhood was cute, convenient to the business district as well as restaurants and felt very safe. Jim and James have created a perfect environment for guests, complete with trendy furnishings, nice linens, flat screen TVs with cable in every room, and an office with a nice work space. They thought of absolutely everything a guest may need, down to coffee, snacks, filtered water and toiletries. I would definitely recommend this for an extended stay in Charlotte or for a group or family that wants more than a single hotel room.”
SMS (Atlanta, GA)
Nice home away from home
We enjoyed our week in Dilworth. The city is charming and very close to Uptown. As soon as you turn the corner at the end of the street, you can see the skyline. Our hosts left us kitchen basics, wine, and snacks and had everything we would need for the kitchen. There were plenty of linens and we did not need a thing. There is Netflix on the television for entertainment. We recommend this apartment to out-of-towners looking to be close to everything and have a furnished, clean place to enjoy while away from home.”
Kim T. (Sandusky, OH)
Have stayed at this location and these owners are the best! You can’t beat this “Old Charlotte” neighborhood, so friendly for walking and so convenient to all the Charlotte attractions, museums, nightlife, and restaurants. The condo is so comfortable and stylish, and you couldn’t ask for more helpful kind owners. Wish I could live here! I have recommended this condo to many friends, and they’ve enjoyed it as well. Can’t go wrong here.”
Amazing get away in perfect location!
My husband, our dog, and I stayed recently for three nights at this lovely apartment. My husband, who does not like hot weather, was very pleased how cool and pleasant the apartment was in Charlotte’s summer heat. Even the screened-in back porch was pleasant because of the shade provided by trees and a ceiling fan: a wonderful place to enjoy a morning coffee or stretch out and read. I was very happy because the apartment was spotless, attractive and comfortable. I had been a little concerned because sometimes in an older building the water pressure is not good, but there was plenty of hot water for the shower. Leo, our dog, appreciated the treats left for him, and it was an easy neighborhood in which to walk him. Even along Queens Rd, the sidewalk and verges are wide and shaded and make for an easy stroll. We also drove to Freedom Park-no more than 15 minutes away- to walk him. The neighborhood is very much as described.There are good restaurants within a 15 minute walk and many more within an easy drive. We especially enjoyed our brunch at Eddie’s Place. It was a short drive to the light rail station on Bland St, which made going Uptown easy and fun. We also went to see a movie at the Regal Cinemas Park Terrace (about a 10-15 minute drive), an older multiplex with very interesting films. We hope to return. Thank you, James and Jim.”
Laura (Wilkesboro, NC)
Thank you for creating this beautiful space for us to stay, and we appreciated the special touches–the munchies, drinks wine, etc. The beds were so comfy. Thank you so much.”
Lisa (Denver, CO)
My husband, son, two dogs and I stayed here for 3 nights. Upon arrival, we were happily surprised with bottles of wine and snacks, the newspaper, soft music playing, and a gorgeous space in which to relax after a long drive from Charleston. We were thrilled! The apartment is in a great location–close to parks and restaurants, great shopping, the Greenway. We couldn’t have asked for more. And meeting Jim was a treat! He’s a gracious host and a font of information. Next time we’re in Charlotte, we’ll be staying with you! THANK YOU.”
Jen (Charleston, SC)
Stay here!! Forget the hotel room!!
If you are reading this, do NOT hesitate to rent this property for your stay in Charlotte. Jim went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and then some! When we arrived the lights were on, music was playing, and the apartment was spotlessly clean. Snacks, breakfast items, wine, water, fruit, scotch….you name it, it was there waiting for us. The condo itself is lovely. Beautifully furnished, comfortable, spacious, and super convenient. Three of my friends stayed in the condo while visiting me in Charlotte, and there was more than enough room for all of them. Thank you Jim and James for all you did to make this a perfect four days.”
Sheila (Charlotte, NC)
Great experience for a business stay
This was the first time I tried a VRBO rental for an extended business trip to Charlotte. Definitely a much better option than holing up in a hotel room for such a lengthy stay. The Myers Park apartment was great. Plenty of space, very nicely decorated and with all the amenities of home (kitchen, washer/dryer, internet). Jim even left some excellent wine and snack for me to add to the feeling of home. The apartment is in a (very nice and upscale) residential part of the city with great foliage and sidewalks for a morning stroll. The downtown area is not in walkable distance. Not a problem for me, but something to be aware of. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet retreat after long days working off-site.”
Maarten (Washington D.C.)
I was somewhat skeptical renting through VRBO at first but with Jim and James’ hospitality and beautiful unit made it easy, comfortable and worthwhile. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I HIGHLY recommend renting through these two gentlemen, to anyone looking to spend time comfortably in Charlotte. I could go on and on about how amazing these two are, but the pictures speak for themselves. Go ahead…book today.”
My friends and I stayed for a week in this property while in Charlotte for business. It was spacious, well decorated, and was perfect for our needs. The neighborhood was beautiful and the owners were extremely accommodating. Even though we didn’t have cars, it was easy to get to downtown Charlotte via the bus system. I would highly recommend staying at this charming property.”
Tim (New York)
NCSU wins Belk Bowl!
Traveled to Charlotte to take in the sights and sounds of the Belk Bowl! Way to go NCSU! First time staying at vacation rental by owner and recommend these accommodations when traveling to the area! Felt like home! Thanks Jim & James for the hospitality! Enjoyed our visit very, very much.”
Dale & Vonda (Rocky Mount, NC)
Have stayed at this location and these owners are the best! You can’t beat this “Old Charlotte” neighborhood, so friendly for walking and so convenient to all the Charlotte attractions, museums, nightlife, and restaurants. The condo is so comfortable and stylish, and you couldn’t ask for more helpful, kind owners. Wish I could live here! I have recommended this condo to many friends, and they’ve enjoyed it as well. Can’t go wrong here!”
A first trip to Charlotte was made perfect by the warmth of the hosts and their lovely apartment. Located in a neighborhood of beautifully renovated bungalows, their property is a standout, and the proximity to local restaurants, organic markets, and downtown were all bonuses. The space was clean, airy, and wonderfully quiet. The apartment exceeded expectations, but it was the hosts’ hospitality that made the weekend. We’ll be back!”
Jim and James were excellent hosts. They were superb in terms of attention to detail. The map of local eateries and sights was a real boon. We appreciated the generous welcome of food and wine. The apartment is stylish and was great for us and our two teenage boys. Dilworth is a lovely area of Charlotte. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.”
Tony and Jan B.
A PERFECT STAY!!! Loved the screened porch!
Thank you guys SO MUCH for letting us stay in such a wonderful place. The apartment was beautiful, so neat and clean and filled with charm. I appreciate all the little details — like the food and drinks that were available for us to enjoy, the wonderful music that was softly playing when we arrived and how nice everything looked. I made coffee each morning and enjoyed those wonderful cookies on the screened in porch and watched the little squirrels play while I caught up on email. We named them Harriet and Ozzy, by the way. The bed was super comfortable and we loved how elegantly everything was decorated. Very nice and clean. Loved all the clean, neatly folded extra towels as well. Easy to find shops, restaurants nearby and I will recommend this place to anyone I know who needs a place to stay in Charlotte! WONDERFUL!!! Thank you again.
debbieanne (Glendale, CA)
My wife and I stayed at the Queens Terrace location for a long weekend recently. We were in town for a wedding and our family had a number of units rented. All I can say is WOW! I have rarely stayed at hotels that could match the quality of these suites, and I saw several! All were impeccably designed and each, an original. From the fine details of the art on the walls, the furnishings, the iPod radio, flat screen TVs, wood floors, designer rugs, and on and on, we felt like we were guests at an interior designers home! We wish you had these types of units in every town we visit!
Moving to Charlotte
We are thinking of moving to Charlotte and thought a stay in a neighborhood would be a better experience than a hotel – we were right. Jim and James were available and friendly, the condo was clean and well stocked and Dilworth is a great part of Charlotte – so clean. The central location made it easy to see all parts of the city, and the many nearby restaurants and shops were a joy to walk to.
We were in town for my son’s graduation, and the apartment was just as charming as it looked on line. It was absolutely clean and a beautiful space to relax in. We enjoyed walking the beautiful neighborhoods, as well. Also, this location was an easy drive to Interstate 77 and major roads within the city. Lisa was a great and happy welcoming party as were the treats she left for us. I just loved sitting on the screened in porch in the morning and hearing the city wake up. We would most definitely rent from this owner and at this location, again.

Visiting new grandchild!
The apartment was clean, comfortable and very homey. The owners, Jim and James, and their assistant Lisa were welcoming and wonderful hosts. I stayed for a full month and took many walks on the Dilworth/Southend area. It was a perfect location. I highly recommend this VRBO and hope to stay there again on another visit to Charlotte.
Cathy (Carlsbad, CA)
Quaint, charming and the most courteous owners possible!
It’s a charming two-bedroom rental that made me feel like home. If you’re into the 1920’s/1930’s character then this is the place for you. It’s had the space that my college roommate and I needed to hang out and catch up, yet have separate comfortable bedrooms for us to retreat to at the end of the day. The condo is spacious with an updated kitchen, the screened in porch served as a comfortable morning place for a cup of joe, and the other amenities met all my expectations. The icing on the cake was the fact that the owners treated me as if we had been friends. I ended up getting in late and they had treats waiting on me (nuts, a bottle of wine, banana’s, apples, spaghetti and pasta sauce, coffee creamer and orange juice) all for my taking with no expectation of funding back. How generous.
We just stayed a few days at this apartment and it was great. The photos do accurately reflect the rental’s appearance and amenities. The apartment was very clean and well decorated. The owner added little touches that made the apartment feel like a home. The area was close to down town where we found shops and places to eat. I would recommend this property to anyone to is looking for a nice place to stay.
Wanda (Hartford, CT)
Exceptional accommodations for convention
Everything about our stay was exceptional. The location couldn’t be better, the condo was the perfect ambiance and size, and the owners went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.
Jim (Austin, TX)
Tree Climbers Competition
I brought my whole company to Charlotte for a tree climbing competition in Freedom Park. With 9 of us, I knew we would have trouble finding a place we could all hang out together, but I found these Myers Park condos, and it worked out perfectly. We took up 2 condos, #3 and #8, for the 3-day weekend. Both condos were clean, comfortable, and well decorated. We spent most of our days at the park, but the evenings were spent relaxing and eating and throwing back a few frosty libations. I’ll be booking again if we can make it to the Charlotte Tree Climbing Competition next year!
Arbordude (Springfield, MO)
We had a wonderful stay at this Myers Park residence. James welcomed us when we arrived. It was so nice to have all the extras provided like wine, fruit, pasta, sauce, orange juice, coffee, butter, etc. That made our first day even more relaxing. The decorating was very nice and made it seem even more like a home. This property is located in a beautiful neighborhood, which we enjoyed on our walks. We would highly recommend this property as a vacation place to stay away from home.
Kathy (Kenosha, WI)
Fun girls’ weekend–Fit for a Queen!
I traveled to Charlotte with my mom, sister and niece. It was all of our first time and we truly were lucky to find this place! We spent 4 nights here an unlike a stale hotel room, the apartment offered a cozy way to enjoy the beauty that Myers Park and Charlotte have to offer. We made frequent use of the screened patio from drinking our coffee in the morning to eating our Price’s Chicken Coop take out for lunch. The gorgeous natural environment offered a wonderful divergence from our homes in NYC and LA. We woke up to birds chirping each morning! Getting to and fro was a cinch! The place is so close to Uptown but a car is recommended for getting around.
Adrienne (Brooklyn, NY)
Great for a family reunion
My husband and I stayed here with another couple, either driving or walking to events during a family reunion. The condo offered all the amenities we could have wanted, from a welcoming bottle of wine and soft music to super comfortable beds. It was beautifully appointed, free Wifi was appreciated and the screen porch was perfect for coffee in the morning when a couple still wanted to sleep in. Jim was easy to reach, both before our arrival and during our stay; and within a half hour had ensured that a hair dryer was available for a family member staying at another of his condos. That level of response was truly impressive for mid-day on a Saturday. We had everything we could want, found extra sheets for the pull out bed and spare towels without having to search long or call for assistance. The washer and dryer were a real bonus for the runner in our party who did not want to travel with unpleasant laundry We would highly recommend both the US Whitewater Center for outdoor activities and the Latta Plantation for a bit of history and lovely hiking.
Great Location, Great Place
Great location, easy access to all that Charlotte has to offer in a gorgeous neighborhood close to shopping and dining. Lovely space, clean and bright, comfortable and safe. Would recommend this to all my friends.
Damien (West Boxford)
Enjoyed our Long Weekend
Jim was an excellent host. We were late arriving, so the last thing we wanted to do was to go to the store and stock up. However, Jim had the refrigerator and bar stocked (along with coffee for the morning after). That was a great surprise! The apartment was very clean and well furnished. Really enjoyed the balcony, plus the convenience to all the shops and restaurants on East Blvd. We were in Charlotte for the Coldplay concert, so it was an easy trip by taxi to the Time Warner Arena downtown. The neighborhood is great for running and biking. Will definitely be back.
Darrell (St Simons)
Brilliant Tree House
Great apartment – very comfortable and brilliant as a base for our vacation touring North and South Carolina from England. We stayed in an upstairs apartment and it was really nice having the trees as our view everywhere we looked. The restaurant recommendations were spot-on – everyone should eat at 300 East! Would certainly look at staying in one of Jim and James’ apartments next time we are in the area.
Mark W. (England)
WOW! Second stay during relocation to Charlotte
I would recommend this property or other properties from this owner without hesitation. This was the second opportunity I had to enjoy a stay at the owner’s property as I finalized relocation to the Charlotte, NC area. The unit is open with a great deal of natural sunlight. Accompanying wifi internet access allowed me to work while enjoying the day without compromising the workday. The 2 bedroom unit is expertly decorated without missing any details or amenities. In-unit laundry machines provides an added benefit for travelers, while the spacious unit doesn’t make one feel claustrophobic that is found when staying in corporate hotel chains. Overall the unit provides a fully supplied kitchen with all needed utensils to cook and serve. The proximity to downtown Charlotte makes business travel a breeze and shopping at the local Target or Trader Joe’s simple.
Daniel J. (Charlotte, NC)
Great place to stay for a week-long vacation–
I’m hesitant to brag too much because I want to make sure this unit is available next time I come to Charlotte. 🙂 The pictures are great but the unit is even better in person. The hospitality that Jim provided was outstanding. Providing complimentary wine, liquor as well as some other food items was unlike anything I’ve experienced before. I definitely plan on returning as soon as I can get back.
Jlujan (Orlando, FL)
Second stay from UK
We stayed here after having a wonderful visit in Jim and James’ Queens Terrace building in nearby Myers Park. Great apartment – very comfortable and everything was close by. Much better alternative than staying in a hotel – it really felt like we were staying in someone’s home. The restaurant recommendations were spot-on – 300 East should be on everyone’s list of places to eat and their cocktails, especially the Wong, are excellent. Would recommend staying here to anyone and would definitely look Jim and James up next time we are looking to stay in the area.
Mark W. (United Kingdom)
Refuge during home repairs
If you are planning to visit Charlotte, you can do no better than staying at one of Jim and James’ amazing properties! They have a keen understanding of what guests want when away from home, and they have created a stylish, welcoming and comfortable home away from home. They are the quintessential hosts, and the apartment reflects this care and attention to detail. From the fully stocked kitchen to ample towels and soaps in the bathroom to carefully selected food and beverage awaiting guests upon arrival, they’ve thought of it all. My dog and I stayed for more than a week while repairs were being made to my home, and I only wish I could’ve stayed longer. Magnolia Green is located in a wonderfully walkable area that’s close to uptown, restaurants, shops and all sorts of things to do. If you visit without your own transportation, a bus stop is a block away, and light rail access is within walking distance–so getting around without a car is not a problem. Very convenient. I would highly recommend Magnolia Green to anyone looking for a wonderful place to get away while on vacation, business or visiting family. You won’t be disappointed!
AJB (Charlotte, NC)
We loved our apartment in Dilworth and felt at home almost immediately. Jim and James were very helpful and had left us food so we wouldn’t have to go out the first night we were there- I also found the fact that I could make myself a gin and tonic a nice surprise. If we need to rent an apartment in Charlotte again, we will have no hesitation in staying here.
Sinead (London, UK)
Nice home away from home
We enjoyed our week in Dilworth. The city is charming and very close to Uptown. As soon as you turn the corner at the end of the street, you can see the skyline. Our hosts left us kitchen basics, wine, and snacks and had everything we would need for the kitchen. There were plenty of linens and we did not need a thing. We recommend this apartment to out-of-towners looking to be close to everything and have a furnished, clean place to enjoy while away from home.
Kim T. (Sandusky, Ohio)
Lovely area; quaint apartment. When you first walk in the door you feel “welcome” with the little “welcome package” they put together for you! They thought of everything. I would definitely rent from these guys again! Loved it
Frank F. (Venice, Florida)
First VRBO stay—a WONDERFUL experience
This was our first experience using VRBO and our host have set the bar very high for others to match. Overall our experience was fantastic. Typically first impressions can set the stage for an entire experience. Our first impressions and dealing with this rental experience was excellent in all regards. Right from the start, we knew our host Jim and James are wonderful people and well suited for this type of hospitality experience. It was so nice when we arrived that everything was so orderly. The instructions on how to enter the building and apartment were easy. Awaiting us, was spaghetti and sauce to prepare after our long journey including some fruit and nuts. Most important for me was the coffee for my next morning and the real half and half!….something I enjoy in the morning. And the orange juice to start the day right. After our very long drive we enjoyed relaxing with the wine left for us to sip and unwind. Our host have thought of everything to make your visit enjoyable and easy so one can relax. Before our trip, our host provided us with a Google Map of locations of interest; coffee shops, food stores, restaurants, local community theatre, bike rentals, etc. We found this map most useful and our first night using this map, went for a neighborhood walk to explore. The neighborhood is very walkable, friendly and streets with very nice looking homes. Everything that was said to us about the rental, its location, the neighborhood was right on. We visited several of the suggested eateries and found them to be excellent for quality of food and service.

We could not have been happier with a place to stay! The apartment is bright with natural light and very spacious and well decorated (looks like the pictures); we felt right at home. It was very clean and the attention to detail was a great surprise. Our bed was the best! We were pleased with the stocked food items… that was a true surprise…. a just-ripe-enough banana and a glass of sparkling water were just what I needed after a drive! The available outdoor grills and seating area made it so convenient to cook-out with our family. It is a very quiet neighborhood with tree lined streets with the convenience of a grocery store just a long block away. The quirks of an old building were present but presented no problems. Our extended group stayed in five units; it was so convenient to have us all together for an extended time during our daughter’s wedding. Thank you for your gracious hospitality; we will be back!

Shopping trip, loved the nearby restaurants
The apartment provided a good base for our furniture shopping trip to NC, and the surrounding area is lovely. The apartment is within an easy walk of many restaurants including sushi, Italian and Indian. We especially enjoyed Fiamma, a fine Italian restaurant, and had a good breakfast one morning at Toast. Both are just a couple of blocks away. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the balcony was perfect for the warm spring weather they were having. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to others as a great place to stay.
Great Place for Business—Best VRBO experience by far
I’ve stayed in a number of VRBO properties while traveling on business and have to say this was hands down my best experience. Very nice condo, great amenities and a wonderful location.

Comfortable and convenient! Everything you need and more!
What a comfortable and relaxing place to stay! The owners thought of everything from a cocktail bar complete with fresh limes to beautiful towels in the classic bathroom. We actually decided against eating out our second night so that we could spend more time relaxing in the condo. We got Dean and Deluca and listened to classical music while enjoying wine. The condo was within 5 minutes of downtown. A restful, comfortable, and thoughtfully-prepared place to come “home” to after enjoying a long day in Charlotte! We will definitely stay again the next time we are in the area!

Warmth of welcome appreciated
Jim and James are fantastic hosts–responsive to our questions and generous with their thoughtful amenities that made us feel welcomed and special! The condo was comfortable with their eclectic and artful decorating tastes and completely supplied with appliances and kitchenware. Lap blankets were provided for cooler morning days before we enjoyed the lovely screened porch. I can’t wait to explore and enjoy their other properties. I highly recommend them to friends and family.
Beautiful Myers Park Apartment
I visited Charlotte with my husband and 2 year old son and we were thrilled to be able to stay in James and Jim’s charming apartment. It’s clean, tastefully decorated and super comfortable. The apartment is even prettier than the photos. They were able to provide a crib and high chair for my son, and made every effort to make sure that we had everything we needed. My husband took the bus often to Uptown and to South Park, and the bus stop is very close by. The door to the patio was jammed when we arrived, but someone came over to fix it right away. A really great place to stay in Charlotte and I’m certain we’ll be back!

Warm welcome and perfect location
More than we expected! These guys have set such a high standard for providing lovely accommodations. 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.
Jim has created a delightful art-filled space that encourages relaxation. Everything from the welcome snacks to the extra linens and the wooden hangers in the closet make guests feel pampered, yet at home — am already planning my return visit next year.

Awesome break from hotel for 5 month consultancy
I stayed at “Magnolia Green” from January through May. Jim, James, Lisa and Luna were all great to work with. They met any need I had and provided many extras in a very thoughtful way. The unit was always spotlessly clean and ready when I needed it. This unit has all the comforts of home from a full kitchen to a comfy bed to a nice sun deck to a pleasant outdoor common area. The location is great – close to uptown and in the heart of Dilworth. Many great places to shop and eat. There is a great park with playground and walking trail within walking distance. The neighborhood is safe, pleasant, and enjoyable to walk through. My only complaint is that I was there for business and had very little time to enjoy the amenities of the property and the city of Charlotte! I would highly recommend this property, whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, alone or with a companion.
Lindy (Baltic, Ohio)
Thank you sooo much for having such a perfect place for us to stay! Jim and James are truly generous of spirit, with the wine and cocktail cart, as well as welcoming us with the other food items that, well, just made us happy. The spiritual vibe here is awesome and I felt like I was at home. Thank you again.

Beyond Expectations—Great hotel alternative
Without reservation I would recommend this unit to anyone that needed accommodations and would like to stay out of the commercial path of national chain hotels. The owner keeps one of Charlotte’s best kept secrets available to business travelers and families. I was, and still am happily surprised about the accommodations. The unit had every amenity that an individual or couple would need for a weekend getaway or a business traveler would need for an extended stay in the greater-Charlotte area. The unit was open and inviting – providing the ability to decompress without dealing with guests and noises found at hotels. The property is nestled in a very nice part of Charlotte, well within driving distance to many restaurants and shopping complexes including groceries. You could even walk to some of the businesses around the unit within a few blocks. For those on an extended stay, the unit provided high-quality and varied kitchen items; laundry machines were within the unit; and the owners provided a quick care package of quick food items along with wine and a few items in the wet bar. I had the opportunity to stay with at the property and enjoy grilling out with a few people I had met while I started my relocation to Charlotte.
Daniel J. (Charlotte, NC)
Historic Walkable neighborhood and comfortable
The rental exceeded all of our expectations. We arrived about 10 pm and found a delightful array of food and beverage options waiting for us……..red wine, white wine, half gallon of orange juice…several types of liquor and mixers. Pasta and sauce, fresh fruit, english muffins, butter, popcorn, Accessing the unit was easy with the directions provided by the owners. A great location….two grocery stores nearby; also several restaurants. The furnishings were lovely, very comfortable, washer and dryer in the apartment. Plenty of parking both off and on street near the apartment. Would definitely return.
June P. (Seattle WA)
Had a wonderful stay at #8 Magnolia Green for 4 nights. Arriving late on Wed. night, it was wonderful to have wine and some snacks waiting for us. The accommodations were even nicer than we had anticipated, the location ideal for walking to our son’s Dilworth home. We would love to return sometime, and will highly recommend to others!!
Richard and Nancy K., Bellevue, WA
The one bedroom apartment on Magnolia was even better than advertised. It was so comfortable, clean, and convenient for my wife and me and we could not have been more pleased. Jim did a great job making sure everything was just right………from the newspaper……the welcome note…….the food placed for our enjoyment…and even a glass of wine or a cocktail as the owner’s guest. When we are back in Charlotte for more than a couple of days, we will certainly give Jim a shout and hope that the unit is available.
Neil (Fayetteville NC)
Perfect place to stay in Charlotte for our family
My husband, son, and I stayed at this property for a long weekend while visiting Charlotte. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel at home. The apartment was immaculate and extremely comfortable. I highly recommend staying here when visiting Charlotte.

Stylish and Comfortable 2nd Stay!
This is the second time this year my family and I have stayed at 500 Queens Rd, and it felt like going home! The apartment manages to be totally cool and comfortable. There is obviously a lot of care and attention paid to the decor (a lot of mid-century modern and other beautiful modern pieces). I love that they support local artists, too – the artwork everywhere is fantastic. It’s clean and well maintained. The location is lovely and convenient. Can’t wait to come back!
Sekiya (New York, NY)
Amazing Weekend Getaway
We had a wonderful time in Charlotte. This beautifully decorated apartment was close to everything, yet set in a great neighborhood with sidewalks for an evening stroll. The owners made sure everything was perfect on check in with a well equipped kitchen and all the little extras of home. We will definitely return for a romantic getaway or another family event. Can’t say enough about the experience!
Pam L. (-)
This place is beyond amazing! The detail they put into making you feel comfortable is amazing! The unit came with a mini bar, welcome basket with my favorite biscoff style cookies, fruit and treats. The fridge was even equipped with essentials like sparkling water, OJ and butter! I was so pleased! I want to stay at every property just to get design tips! It was immaculately designed, impeccably clean and super impressive! Even the carpet in the hallway is plush! Thanks Jim & James!
Home Away From Home for Daughter’s Wedding
This apt was great! Plenty of parking for guests too. Host was just a phone call away to answer questions and help us out. Apt. was spotless upon arrival with amenities ready for the weary traveler. The photos and description on the website was accurate. The oven controls were geared for celcius and not like American ovens, so some written directions would have been very helpful, but we eventually got it figured out. My pies came out perfect! If we need an apt again when in Charlotte, we will definitely call for one of the apts owned by this host; you can’t go wrong!
Great place while floors being refinished
We stayed at this beautiful home while our floors were being refinished. We didn’t want to leave! The condo was delightful and charming. Jim and James had thoughtfully provided all the comforts of home, even umbrellas. The kitchen was well-equipped and I was impressed with the over-all cleanliness. Will definitely stay with them again and recommend to friends.
Spacious two bed room two bath condo with all the conveniences of home
We stayed for three nights and were very pleased with the accommodations. Everything was clean and the owners made sure we had a very comfortable and inviting stay. The location is walking distance from the grocery which made the use of the kitchen a snap.
Traveler (Chicago, il)
My husband I cannot even begin to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The pictures did not convey the comfort zone that one feels the minute you drive through the blocks before pulling into the drive way. We cannot wait to return next year!!
This was a weeks stay for 4 ladies that love to antique, shop, and sight see. Our location and accommodations were just great! The kitchen was stocked for the first night and breakfast the next morning, what a pleasant surprise. The owner was so helpful with all his local information. We really enjoyed our stay and would most definitely stay again.

Perfect for families
Traveled to charlotte with 2 small children and this was a great and easy place to stay! Perfect for families and easy to get around town from this location. I can’t think of anything that i would change about the experience.
Convenient to Uptown, Light Rail
This was a great place to stay. As describe is was bright and spacious. Location was perfect for my group of 4. We were about a 15 min walk to the light rail system that takes you directly into the city. We were in town for the Clemson VT game, and the drive to the stadium was 5 minutes with all the traffic. The home was as described including a provided first dinner and alcohol. We decided to make our own dinner the first night, and all of the pots and pans were provided to make a huge meal. Thanks for everything Jim.
We really enjoyed staying at Jim and James’ Dilworth Apt. M4! It was truly spacious and bright, and it was very chic and comfortable. We found the apartment very relaxing and enjoyable, and won’t hesitate to stay there again next time we’re back in the Charlotte area. Jim and James were very accommodating hosts and when we arrived they had left us a tray full of food and treats and a fridge with essential items (half and half, butter, wine, etc.). We really appreciated this as we arrived without time to go to the grocery right away. I thought this was very thoughtful of them. The dishes and appliances were all in great shape and the kitchen was stocked with all essential items. The linens and towels were very comfortable, and the furniture was very nice. The air/heat worked well too. The area/neighborhood is great–we love Dilworth–lots of parks, restaurants, and some shops nearby. There is also off-street parking (2 spots) directly behind the apartment, which made things easy. I’d highly recommend this apartment if you are looking for an upscale yet comfortable home away from home.
Great location to stay in Charlotte
We stayed with our 2 children at this beautiful apartment. Jim is friendly and checks in to make sure your stay is going well. The owners have totally re-done this property to include all high-end appliances, new and modern furnishings and super comfortable beds. The apartment was super clean and we were welcomed with wine and a few food items to get us started. The location is excellent and is a short drive close to shopping and dining in Southpark, Uptown or Pineville. This is an excellent alternative to a hotel, with the privacy of 2 separate bedrooms and all you need as your home away from home. Thank you for your hospitality, we look forward to staying with you again.

The Condominium we stayed in was exceptionally clean and had every amenity you would wish for while on vacation. We had a wonderful time and would definitely consider renting again while in the Charlotte area.

Clean, comfortable, convenient and close to downtown
We recently stayed at this property for a long weekend. We would highly recommend this property. It was spotlessly clean and provided everything mentioned on the VRBO website. The location could not have been better. It was only about 1 and 1/2 miles from downtown Charlotte but was in a very quiet, clean, peaceful, relaxing , uncrowded, low traffic neighborhood. Parking for this property was very easy, convenient, and plentiful. The beds were very comfortable. Everything in the kitchen appeared to be brand new. There were 3 very good quality flat screen TV’s. Everything was in good working order. We would definitely stay here on our next visit to Charlotte. It is so much better than a hotel room. The owners provided 3 phone numbers to contact them if needed. We had no need for this during our stay but it was nice to have available in case anything came up.
JCM (Kingsport, TN)
What a great place to stay in Charlotte on business
I was recently in town on business and had the pleasure of staying here. Jim is very easy to work with and the condo is great. The location is great. I will stay here againg when in town. Thanks, the bar amenities were awesome.
What a beautiful place, great location and fabulous city!! We had a wonderful time and appreciated the great space and wine!
House hunting trip
Thanks for everything — the accommodations were terrific and the amenities just wonderful (as was the location!). It was the perfect place for our family to stay while on a house-hunting mission! I wouldn’t change a thing and really appreciate the extra touches such as dish soap, the basket of goodies and drinks, etc. It really made our stay so pleasant, and we’ll certainly be sending relatives to stay there when we move to town!
