Default Place to rent near airport

Hello to all,

I will be relocating to the Charlotte area in late October/early November. Since I work out of the Charlotte airport, I will want to rent something that will allow me an easy commute. I am not familar with Charlotte and I would welcome any advice regarding areas that might be a good fit for me, and also perhaps some areas to avoid.

I am a single woman, late 40's, no kids, no pets. I enjoy cultural events and city life, but I also value the quiet suburbs too. Since I will be renting just until I have become familar enough with the Charlotte area to make a good decision about a place to purchase, I can be flexible with where I rent.

I have been very impressed with all of the outstanding advice others have posted here. Could any of you please give me your opinion on where to look?

Thanks!

Kitt

Checkout the Belmont-Mt Holly area. Affordable, close to airport and downtown, safe, quiet and rural. Try Charlotte craigslist and search for
belmont or mt holly in apt/homes for rent.

Try the Catawba Apartments in Belmont, they have something in your price range: catawba apartment loc: belmont, nc - Google Maps

I live in Belmont and fly for business every week. The drive to the airport is between 10-15 minutes depending on where you live

Belmont is quiet and peaceful, the historic downtown area is a bit small but nice. There are events in the city park on a regular basis.

Hope that helps,
Chris

We used to live at the Courtney Oaks Apartment Community (Courtney Oaks Apartment Homes, Charlotte, NC | ContraVest). It's at the Beam/Shopton Road Intersection, about 15 Minutes from the airport.

The apartments are nice, but expensive (we paid 800 USD for a one bedroom apartment. Washer and Dryer comes with the apartment.

Nice community, but for me, too close to an area I would want to live in. Granted it IS close to the airport.
