About Ole Hammarlund and Karen Lips

We are architect(Ole)/landscape architects(Karen) with an interest in revitalizing the downtown. Ole is from Denmark and Karen is from Ottawa. We came to PEI 35 years ago and loved it here.

Ole Hammarlund and Karen Lips purchased this condo in 2006

Why Ole Hammarlund and Karen Lips chose Charlottetown

The Old YMCA attracted us by its lofty ceilings, grand spaces and the many hardwood floors. We love ballroom dancing and immediately imagined ourselves here. The Y was a much loved building used by almost every Islander some times in their life, but had closed down and sat empty for 2 years before we bought it and started to renovate it.

What makes this condo unique

Our loft is in the western end of the old gym and still has the original hardwood floors. The dining table and kitchen table as well as the stairs are made of the bowling alley that used to be in the basement, which is now the indoor parking garage. There are 18 lofts in all, each one unique and different.

Everything we expected plus more

  • 5 of 5
Ole greeted us after arriving from our flight in to Charlottetown with a glass of wine and appetizers. A great way to begin our vacation. The home was everything that was described plus more. The location was perfect, the home was completely equipped with everything we needed, and a unique experience we won't forget. A totally enjoyable stay in an extremely beautiful condo! We would not hesitate in returning for our next vacation to PEI.

Delightful Condo in the heart of Charlottetown!

  • 4 of 5
We spent a wonderful 10 days in this beautiful, spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo!
Our visit started with a delicious dinner prepared for us by the owners, Ole and Karen, over which we had an opportunity to relax after a long car ride and to learn all about Charlottetown and about the apartment itself. I spent much of that first evening (as well of much of the rest of my visit) admiring the beautiful artwork and the architectural features of the building and the apartment itself! A lovely evening to begin our lovely stay!
The beautiful, chef's kitchen was a little wasted on me, as part of my vacation was not cooking too much. However, it would be perfect for chefs and aspiring chefs who want to practice their gourmet cooking, and the place itself is perfect for entertaining. And I did make good use of the professional espresso maker (after Ole gave me a lesson ;-) and had homemade, delicious lattes every morning.
Our hosts left us on our own to relax, unless we had a question or they had an idea that they thought would interest us, and then they were quick to answer and give us whatever help we needed. For example, there is a projector in the condo (no TV, but there is a supply of movies and an HDMI connection, so it's possible to watch movies on the giant screen and stream content if you bring a laptop). When we were being shown how it worked, my husband discovered that there was a problem with it. The next day a replacement appeared at the condo and all was well.
The building itself is really beautiful and there are several outdoor areas to hang out on - a lovely little patio and a rooftop oasis. It is within a 5-10 minute walk of the water, shops, theatres, pubs, etc. I love to walk, and my husband loves to relax and read - so this place was ideal for us!
We would definitely recommend this place for couples or families wanting have a fun, relaxing stay in Charlottetown. Looking forward to when we can visit again!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This rental is right in the heart of Charlottetown. While the property does not normally accommodate children, Ole and Karen brought books, blocks and a crib over for us, which was amazing.
The only hard part of the property is that the loft is far from the second room. We were thankful my sister joined us and stayed on the main floor with the kids, otherwise it would be a difficult to stay here with small children. Ole and Karen were upfront about this though, so we were prepared when we arrived.
As the information indicates....it is a perfect place for a couple!

This truly is a unique apartment. Never stayed anywhere like this before. Ideal for a couple who like to stay somewhere with character. A huge open space on the ground floor featuring an impressive kitchen and appliances. Great if you want to self cater and have friends or family you can entertain. Spoilt for choice on where to relax, either on the ground floor patio surrounded by plants or on the roof terrace. The owners, Ole & Karen provided a lovely welcome lunch for us and gave us invaluable information about PEI. Having settled us in they left us to our own devices. The bedroom is located on a mezzanine floor with a balcony overlooking the open plan sitting room and dining area. The roof terrace is then up another flight of stairs from the bedroom. There is a bathroom adjacent to the bedroom and another one on the ground floor. Both have very good showers. It is true there is no television and for us this was a welcome change. There is a hi-fi and dvd player, which was more than adequate for us. There is reserved underground parking. The property is in a great location for exploring downtown Charlottetown and the harbour, which is less than 10 minutes walk. There are lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance but the kitchen area is so impressive you may well prefer to cook for yourself. Would also recommend driving out to see some of the lovely beaches, countryside and villages in PEI, most of which can be reached within an hour's drive. Overall we were very happy to have found this place and had the opportunity to stay in a place that is not your run-of-the-mill apartment.

Don't let the drive in scare you after several minutes of driving by strip malls we ended up in a great downtown neighborhood. Great restaurants shopping, morning coffee, music and entertainment just a couple of blocks away definitely cut down on the drive time. Being a bicyclist I could reach PEI bike trails in a few minutes. Staying at the Y-Lofts added to the overall experience. Besides the unique living settings, underground parking, lots of space and a prime location right next door to one of PEI's best B&B's made for a great home. If you like to cook the kitchen is unbelievable. Beach bound there are plenty of options only 20 mins away. ( We fell in love with Brackely Beach) My only reservation would be only if stairs are an issue for you the master bedroom is a flight up. No unexpected noise issues ( Your are in a city after all). Owners are there to help and advise if need but otherwise are invisible. Like plants you'll love it even more living in a miniature botanical garden.

Definitley would go back.

Lovely Downtown Loft

  • 5 of 5
Lovely open-concept loft, an easy walk to downtown Charlottetown for restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed the comfortable beds, great kitchen and artsy environment. We were pleasantly surprised to find something this elegant and chic on PEI! We found the space well-equipped and especially loved the kitchen. Ole and Karen were friendly and helpful hosts. A truly unique and beautiful space. We hope to return!
