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

At 1,000+ sq. ft, this very large 1br/1ba sleeps 4 guests, and is ideal for a weekend away or a long-term stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The place to stay

  • 5 of 5

in town for a weekend getaway with the family. Quaint and well appointed with vintage charm. Plenty of room for the middle schoolers to sleep on the pull out in this large 1 BR apt. Everything is considered, even wall hooks in just the right places. We got into town very late and were delighted to find some snacks and a quick breakfast, including coffee!, to hold us over until we could get out in the morning. The wine and distilled spirits were also appreciated...including a lime!! Love the front porch, the weather was perfect for a nap! Communications with the owners were on point, including a list of recommended restaurants within easy walking distance of apt. Would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable and Convenient and Pet Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hawthorn 1 for 4 nights in late April. The apartment is lovely and very clean. We ran into traffic on our drive in and were thrilled to find wine and snacks - as well as other beverages - waiting for us. Charlie was friendly and helpful and reserving the unit was a breeze. We brought our dogs and the neighborhood was perfect for long walks. There is a park nearby as well. There are many restaurants, coffee shops etc. all an easy walk from the apartment. The porch is perfect for morning coffee, lounging in the afternoon, or an evening glass of wine. We were very happy with the apartment and have already recommended it to friends. We'll certainly stay again next time we're in the area.

Great apartment, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at Hawthorn 1 in late April. The apartment was exactly as pictured - lovely décor and very comfortable. We brought our dogs and the surrounding neighborhood was perfect for long dog walks - shady sidewalks and a nearby park - the ground floor unit was very convenient. We arrived in the evening after a long day on the road and were thrilled to find wine and snacks waiting for us. The covered porch is a wonderful place for a glass of wine in the evening, lounging with a book in the afternoon, and morning coffee. The unit has a washer and dryer if needed and there a many restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Museums and other attractions are an easy drive. We will absolutely recommend the Hawthorn to anyone traveling to Charlotte.
