About the property

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps four with king in master, very close to Uptown!


Close to all the excitement in Uptown Charlotte, with sports, concerts and restaurants minutes away. No walls to share with neighbors, no elevator to wait for and no fee to park in our driveway!

Our completely remodeled bungalow is just over a thousand square feet, with two nice sized bedrooms and one bathroom with on-demand tankless hot water! The living room, dining room and kitchen are open concept. Everything is new! And we like red.

The living room is open, with plenty of natural light from the front porch and side windows. There's a couch with a lounge seat and a slipper chair. We got creative with the coffee table. The TV has a Roku box, and Netflix and SlingTV are enabled - so you can stream and watch the best of cable TV. :)

The dining room seats four, and the white chest in the corner holds some games if you find yourself staying in for the evening. The kitchen is fully appointed with granite counters and stainless steel appliances - all new from Samsung. You've got everything you need to cook up a storm - dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc. - bring it on.

The hall bedroom holds a queen sized bed, and the room is change-of-pace blue. Take a load off in the teacup chair.

The master sports a low-slung modern king-size bed with foam mattress and gel topper. The TV here is set up just like the living room - Roku with Netflix and SlingTV on and ready to watch! There's also a sitting area and the closet is all yours.

The bathroom has a dual-vanity granite countertop with twin pedestal sinks, and the shower is fully-tiled with a rain shower head. The laundry closet is tucked opposite the vanity. Towels and other necessities can be found in the hall closet across the way.

Here, you're close to everything. Drive anywhere in Uptown in a few minutes. Ride a bike and it might take a few more. Or, get your FitBit charged and walk it. You're 30 minutes from the baseball stadium on foot!

What's really close? The NC Music Factory, with bars, restaurants, the Comedy Zone and, of course, venues where a lot of bands come and play. The windows are all new, so they help dull the sounds of the band, if you're not into what's playing, and take the edge off the occasional train horn – close proximity to the city means there's gonna be a bit of noise.

Whether you're in town to check out Charlotte's microbreweries and blossoming food scene, take in a show from your favorite band, or head into the city for an important business meeting, this is your base of operations!

Why Chris Miranda chose Fourth Ward

Location can't really be beat. Close to Uptown Charlotte and the interstates that criss-cross it, we're not far from anything and in the center of everything!

What makes this house unique

Walk to the Music Factory. A bit longer walk to Uptown, including sporting events. Or just take a cheap ride-sharing service!

Carolina Panthers vs New Orlean Saints Game

  • 5 of 5

First off let me start by saying Chris was extremely helpful and accommodating prior to our arrival. Secondly, the house is awesome! Updated to the hilt! Chris did a great job welcoming us to his VRBO with up to date emails and even allowed us to park at the house prior to check-in. If I was coming back to Charlotte anytime soon, this is the place and Chris is the guy I would choose to rent from. Thanks for your hospitality and sharing your wonderful house!

Very cozy and central

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so comfortable! Just right for us and very central to downtown and all of the vibrant neighborhoods nearby. We arrived on a red eye and were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was for our quick nap before exploring town. Breweries and BBQ abound nearby!

Had to get used to the trains, but overall good experience

Owner's Response: Thanks, Mark! Yeah, the new windows we put in cut a lot of the train noise out, but there's always going to be a bit, even though the train traffic is seasonal, and there's really no escaping some kind of noise in close proximity to the city. :) We appreciate your stay, and we hope you'll come stay with us again!

Great Place to Stay in Charlotte

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice neighborhood and a perfect size home for us. It was close to the city and easy to find.

Working with Chris was easy.

This would definitely be our first choice to stay when we come back to visit the Charlotte area again.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $60
Refundable damage deposit $300
Tax Rate 15.25%

We require payment up front to confirm the reservation, including the damage deposit. We accept payment through VRBO. We do require a damage deposit instead of insurance for two reasons. One, it's cheaper for you if you're a respectful guest! You don't get the insurance back, so you save this way. Two, insurance is a pain! Deposits are returned in7-10 business days - easy! Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
