Description of the Charlotte vacation villa rental
Brand New Villa Estate

The Villa stands watch over a secluded cove on the shores of Lake Wylie. Relax on the veranda to watch recreation watercraft pass by, identify waterfowl and maybe even catch a peaceful glimpse of a deer. Large picture windows with floor to ceiling views bring the magnificence of the outdoors right into the spacious gathering room to enjoy a fireplace and panoramic vistas sunrise and sunset.

The Villa at Water's Edge
170 Charity Ln Belmont, NC 28012
Reviewed by Dave L.

This is a beautiful lakeside home a very short drive from the Charlotte Douglas Airport and downtown Charlotte. The proprietor (Melanie) was wonderful to work with. She exemplified southern hospitality to me and my group of friends from the Midwest.

The home is very elegantly decorated and quite comfortable. There was lake access and a canoe and paddle boat at our disposal. One room had a built in projector and we enjoyed a movie projected onto the wall with surround sound.

We had some issues with the air conditioning but when we phoned Melanie, she sent out a technician the same day and the issue was resolved and we were nice and cool again. Great customer service!

The site has photos of the house but you really have to see it for yourself to appreciate how nice it is. It's tucked away on a back road but amazingly came right up on our GPS.

If you are planning a stay in the Charlotte area, you can stay here for a very reasonable rate. You won't regret your choice.
Area Information
When you stay at Waters Edge many entertainment choices are only minutes away: US National Whitewater Center, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, The Billy Graham Library, Nascar-Lowes Motor Speedway, Carowinds Theme Park, Blumenthal Performing Arts Theater, Mint Museum of Craft & Design, NBA Charlotte Bobcats, NFL Carolina Panthers, many golf courses, malls, antique shops and fine dining. Yet the peaceful, serene environment at the Villa would never give a hint to the accessibility of so many places to see and things to do.

Oh, we almost forgot, there 's one more thing you might consider doing---absolutely nothing! Because the opportunity to just hang around, kick back, relax and enjoy the renewing experience is unparalleled.

From the moment that I displayed interest in the property Melanie was nothing but spectacular in explaining all the options that were available. Upon arriving the home was in excellent condition and has plenty of amenities to offer. From the fully stocked kitchen to the excellent decor . Thank you for the wonderful Experience :)

Our favorite vacation home for now on!!!

July 10, 2012

My name is Tom and I live in Raleigh, NC. It’s been 33 days since my visit to The Villa at Waters Edge and there has not been a day that neither I nor my family hasn’t thought of The Villa. We have stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, 4 star hotels in NC, etc. and still, we would pick the Villa to stay at hands down. Our favorite anniversary spot in Wrightsville Beach has been changed to the Villa at the Water’s Edge. Everything in the house was clean; I would feel safe to eat off the floor if I needed too. The beds, the entertainment room, the bathrooms, the living room, the front/back yards, the dining room were all beautifully set up and extremely comfortable to be a part of. My favorite was the KITCHEN. Everything I needed to cook a surprise dinner for my wife's birthday was provided in the kitchen, top notch mixer for bread, great oven and all the utensils needed even for the barbeque in the backyard were provided (the grill was foiled and ready to be used). My 2 year old daughter saw the pictures we took of the Villa last night and right away she asked if we can go back. I plan to grant my daughter's wish very soon. Melanie is one of the best people to work with in planning any occasion, which made doing business with The Villa at Waters Edge that much more pleasant. We’re looking forward to our next stay as soon as possible.

Perfect Getaway

August 5, 2011

Villa at Waters Edge on Lake Wylie is just what the pictures suggest! Beautiful! Melanie (the owner) goes out of her way to make sure your every need is attended to. Superb! The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms divine especially the master suite. The Villa gives you the feel of being totally away "from it all" and yet you are only 6 minutes away from the town of Belmont, 10 minutes away from the airport and 12 minutes away from Charlotte. This was our first visit but it will not be our last!

Beautiful, clean home. Wish we could have stayed longer... Lovely setting.

This is a very special place. Photographs do not do justice to the quality and size of the property. My family and I spent a wonderful few days and would like to keep this gem as our secret hideaway but it is only fair to let others in on such a fantastic property.

spacious home away from home

December 30, 2008

We rented the Villa on Lake Wylie the week of Christmas. Melanie was so thoughtful in decorating the house for the holidays. Melanie also baby-proofed the house for us since we have a toddler. The house was spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was wonderful. The lake views were lovely and the area fairly quiet. The location was fairly convenient to many local attractions. I would recommend this property to visitors seeking a home-like environment for an extended stay in the area.

Villa Escape

October 29, 2008

The Villa on Lake Wylie is an excellent vacation spot to get away from the city, work, or just relax. The house is amazing and it is enhanced by the decor. Melanie was a pleasure to work with and went out of her way to make sure our stay was pleasant. My only regret is that I can't keep this little treasure to myself.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

After living here for a short time I began to think how fortunate we are to live on the lake. "Everyone should experience the sunrise, the birds, the fog burning off the cove in the morning at least once"
