About the property

Inviting apartment in centrally-located historic neighborhood,

This property is part of the Home Collection-Charlotte's Boutique Furnished Residences. We have over 30 different residences all within 2 miles from downtown Charlotte! Learn more about our company by visiting our site, click ‘Owner Info’ above.

This is a classic 1br/1ba second floor apartment with all of the comforts of home for a short or long stay. We own the 4-plex, located on Hawthorne Lane in the Elizabeth neighborhood. This ~1,000 sq. ft. residence, with a mix of new, mid-century modern and antique furniture, offers an abundance of space and is especially bright.

The living room offers upholstered seating for 4+, and the sofa converts to a comfortable bed.

There's a desk, and wifi is included as is cable and apple tv.

The covered front porch overlooks the front lawn and is a great place to relax after work.

Though many of our guests enjoy walking to dinner at many of the nearby restaurants (Hawthorne's Pizza, Custom Shop, Fig Tree, Cajun Queen) the kitchen is fully-equipped for making meals at home.

The bedroom comes with 400 thread-count sheets, and the bathroom is supplied with thick Egyptian cotton towels.

The Elizabeth neighborhood is a vibrant area with historic bungalows and larger Victorian homes. Independence Park, the city's oldest, is just a block away.

About Jim Hock

Please note, we offer weekly and monthly discounts - click 'contact owner' to inquire about our length of stay discounts!

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! We 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.

Our company, The Home Collection - Charlotte, offers over 30 different residences in Charlotte, NC all within 2 miles of downtown!

Why Jim Hock chose Elizabeth

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Bright second-floor apartment in our Hawthorne 4-plex gets the best light of any in the building. Perfect pad to explore the surrounding Elizabeth and Plaza Midwood neighborhoods. The neighborhood teams with people out and about on a nice evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was WONDERFUL. All the details…..beautiful. Felt so comfy and homey. A real gift! You guys have been great.

Jane and I followed the itinerary you suggested. We walked to Elizabeth Ave., picked up the bcycle bikes and rode around downtown. Took light rail to Bland and biked to Freedom park. Saw the floutist and her band warming up for the Jazz in the Park concert. Then biked home on the greenway. Was a lovely day.

Hope to visit again.

It really is home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this location in Charlotte, the best pizza is down the road and great shopping a walk away at Envy. The place is fabulous, so cute and the porch is most enjoyable. We recommend it to everyone, hotels are not the way to enjoy a city, actually living in the city is the only way.

Great home away from home in Charlotte!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the unit just for one evening while visiting relatives who live nearby. It was perfect! The apartment is clean and comfortable, and the snacks and drinks were more than I expected. I'd definitely stay here again.

Wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

Quirky old building in an excellent location- I'm in the charlotte area often, and for the first time, my residence was walkable to stores and dining. Quiet street close to the action. Charlie was a welcoming and accommodating host; not at all intrusive, yet only a text or phone call away.

We loved the snacks and bar too! I will definitely seek out another home collection property for my next stay!

Gem in the Queen City

  • 5 of 5

*Clean apartment and very comfortable king size bed. Had all of the amenities of a hotel room with extra added comforts and treats:

- Wine and snacks on the counter & fridge, Apple TV, and Free Wifi.

* In walking distance to several restaurants and bars; we tried Customshop, the Elizabeth Creamery, and Cajun Queen.

* We were a group of three walking all around the neighborhoods. I felt comfortable walking around during the day alone, but I would be more vigilant at night around the apartment.

* Ventured further out by driving to the 7th street Market, Amelie's bakery, and the US National Whitewater Center for a full day of hiking.

*** Perfect for a home base while visiting Charlotte.
