Overview

Charlotte Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This home is part of The Home Collection--Charlotte's Boutique Furnished Residences.

This second story, two bedroom residence is nestled among the stately willow oaks of Myers Park, where curving avenues, gracious homes and small parks combine to make one of the most liveable neighborhoods in the South.

Located 1 mile from Uptown, home to multiple museums, the convention center, Bobcats Arena and the Epicentre entertainment complex, Myers Park is where generations of prominent Charlotteans have made their home since the neighborhood was created by famous landscape architect John Nolen in 1911.

We've maintained the character of the historic 1920's apartment building, while completely updating and renovating the interior. Stainless appliances with granite countertops, new heating and cooling systems and plumbing provide modern amenities, while the original refinished hardwoods, plaster walls, bathroom tile, high ceilings and 2-panel doors provide the charm so often absent in new construction.

In addition to large double-hung windows throughout the home, a sunroom with floor-to-ceiling windows lets in an abundance of light, while the adjacent balcony allows you to enjoy the outside, whether for breakfast in the morning or for a drink or meal in the evening. Since the apartment is located on the second floor, to the rear of the building, it's quiet and private. Off-street parking is also provided.

The galley kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, utensils, etc., a professional-grade gas range with convection oven, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, disposal, and a stackable washer and dryer. Off of the kitchen, a dining area comfortably seats four but can seat up to six.

In the spacious living room, upholstered furniture provides comfortable seating and the sofa makes into a comfortable queen sleeper and an internet enabled 3-D flatscreen television offers streaming Netflx and Hulu as well as other options. We hope you'll enjoy the fully stocked bar, too.

A desk (wifi included) in the adjacent sunroom/sleeping porch enables business travelers to work in a beautiful tree-top setting, and another small sofa makes into a small double bed suitable for an average adult or two small children. Curtains provide privacy.

400-thread-count linens and thick Egyptian cotton towels offer all of the comforts of home, and each bedroom has a generous closet and a television. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, the second offers two twins.

Wide sidewalks and towering oaks throughout the neighborhood provide an ideal place for walking or jogging, and a coffee shop, multiple restaurants (including Ethiopian, Thai, casual and fine Italian, etc.), shopping and even an independent movie theater are a half mile away. Spring through fall, a farmers market is open Wed, Fri and Sat around the corner from the apartment, and a new greenway offers a convenient connection to Freedom Park, Dilworth and Carolinas Medical Center.

Ideal for short- or long-term stays for business or pleasure, or when visiting someone at either CMC or Presbyterian Hospitals, our goal is for you to feel at home during your stay. We'll try hard to accommodate almost any special request and we live less than 2 miles away, so are readily available should something come up. We look forward to hosting you.

About Jim Hock

We 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 our property on VRBO. We are Green Developers 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, which can be especially helpful for people relocating to Charlotte. 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 Hock purchased this condo in 1997

Why Jim Hock chose Charlotte

Charlotte has been our home for 40+ years for Jim and 20+ years for James , and we love sharing our city with other travelers. We feel that location is paramount in any decision to vacation, and ours is one of the most centrally located neighborhoods in the entire city. We purchased this home as a rental when we lived in the building in another unit and lived here a number of years before buying a single family home nearby.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. Our walkable neighborhood provides the ability to live car-free, and when a car is needed, you can get anywhere in the area in minutes. Near both hospitals and close to the Uptown business district, you'll enjoy staying in the center of everything, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. As a native Charlottean, I can help guide you around our city, and can be especially helpful for those relocating to the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Outstanding accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The staff was very accomodating throughout the entire process. In fact, my expectations were exceeded during my stay at Queens Terrace. The atttention to details was above and beyond to include the ornate decorations and view. Charlie is unbelievably professional and hospitable; all special requests were taken care of immediately. No doubt, I will stay here again with no mental reservations.

Good business amenities

  • 4 of 5

Place was in good shape and clean. I think for 2 people the place is perfect, or two couples. There was three individuals staying here and the futon is fine for the third person, but there is no privacy.

Kitchen is good, and the laundry facilities are very helpful.

Overall its a great place to stay and relax after work.

Happy New Year to us...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Charlotte was amazing! The apartment on Queens Rd exceeded all of our expectations. Among many things the unit was clean, cozy, charming, and comfortable.

Perfect location. Great neighborhood for walking. Jim and all of his staff understand what customer service is all about. We feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle 2015!

Perfect Girls' Trip Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Four girlfriends and I recently stayed here for a weekend away and it was an excellent choice. We weren't ever far from "home" as we explored Charlotte's adorable neighborhoods (and Uptown) and the large common area with attached bedrooms provided us with the opportunity to spend time together and private space for when we needed to get a little work done or FaceTime with our toddlers. The house itself is well-appointed and well-decorated and a wonderful home away from home. I would recommend this property to anyone staying a few days in Charlotte and hope we make it back again some day!

Nice Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our apartment was modern in design, up to date, very clean and full of light - very welcoming! James, Jim and Lisa are great hosts. Lisa went out of her way to get the apartment ready early so we could get in ahead of our visiting family to check things out, and boy were we ever envious - we wanted to move in! The welcome basket and easy communications with our hosts left us with a feeling of welcome and gratitude. The central location (happens to be very close to our residence) was so convenient and close to all the amenities in and around the neighborhood. Thanks so much, and good luck with this terrific business model as an alternative to hotel living for out-of-towners visiting Charlotte. I would recommend this apartment to anyone, and we will certainly rent again when the need arises.
