My name is Heather Love and my husband Don and I live in Charlottetown, PEI, with our daughter Christina, who attends the local university. I moved to PEI from my original home in Newfoundland in 1973 and Don and I have spent the past 27 years living and working in the Charlotteotwn area. We started out together in Don's family homestead in Charlottetown, built in 1885 by his great, great, grandfather and lived in by 6 generations of his family . We eventually sold the old house in 1993, and built a new house in a suburban setting more suited to raising kids. But we missed the appeal of the old house charm, and decided, in 1994, to buy an older apartment building in the historic section of the city. After three years, we bought another, and started the long and challenging restoration process. After fifteen years and many projects, we decided, in 2009, to restore our largest apartment unit into an upscale vacation rental, in order to allow folks to experience historic Charlottetown from the inside, and to provide elegant accommodations, modern conveniences and a great location to those visiting our great little city.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1997

We have truly enjoyed developing the old property at 6 Grafton St. We have done extensive renovations and restorations to the exterior and interior, but the work is never done. We have plans to make the property as energy efficient and 'green' as possible, and we have plans to restore another of the units into a vacation property.

While staying at our property, you can enjoy a quiet, spacious environment right in the heart of the city. Each unit in our building has a private deck overlooking an expansive back yard highlighted by gardens and trees. Inside, our vacation unit contains a blend of modern convenience and historic charm. The beds and bedding are new and of best quality. We have a cozy den with a plasma TV, cable, wireless internet, and stereo system to entertain you on those rainy days and lazy evenings. We have a dining room for more formal occassions, or you can eat in our new and spacious kitchen, complete with new appliances, portable island, tile floor, icemaker, and much more. You are less than a 10 minute walk to the theatre, grocery store, banks, restaurants, waterfront, shopping area, and sports facilities. It's really a great way to experience everything that Charlottetown has to offer. And if it's the beach you like, the PEI National Park is a 30 minute drive and boasts the finest beaches in the world. We even provide you with a park pass and beach towels. And don't forget the golf. We have world class courses as close as 10 minutes away.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT !

EXCELLENT APARTMENT !

We spent 4 great weeks in this most beautiful Charlottetown apartment ... more like a "home away from home"... so much so, we are definitely returning next year.

The apartment is even better than depicted in the listing ... it is immaculate and incredibly well equipped. It is located in the very best area of the city ... quiet, safe and yet only a 4 or 5 minute walk from the best Charlottetown has to offer... Theatre, restaurants, boardwalk etc...

We are former residents of the city and revisited some of our favorite eating places... The Dundee Arms and its beautiful bistro and patio... The Gahan House... The Pilot House... The Claddagh Oyster House... each offering something unique ... and there are many more, all within easy reach.
Also, no visit to PEI is complete without attending live theatre and or music events available all summer long and into the fall.

The hosts, Heather and Don are most charming, welcome you like family and are readily available if needed... note: we did not encounter any problems during our stay.

Highly recommended !

Exceptional Charlottetown holiday

  • 5 of 5
We stayed is this lovely apartment for 2 weeks this summer. We were attending a family wedding and combining this with a holiday. Our daughter and son-in-law, who traveled from London, England, joined us for 10 days. The accommodation was perfect. We loved starting our day with coffee and ending our day with a fire on the beautiful little deck. We took advantage of our proximity to the boardwalk to enjoy the beauty of the harbor and to walk to restaurants and shops. We highly recommend renting bikes and riding The Trans Canada Trail to York or Mt Stewart. Heather was wonderful and had thought of everything we might need. The convenience of a washer and dryer was much appreciated in the maritime climate. If you go, be sure o find Canoe Cove. Thanks again to Heather for providing the perfect spot for our Prince Edward Island holiday.

Gorgeous apartment-perfect location-relaxing-HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived (after our long road trip) I knew I had made the perfect decision choosing 6 Grafton Street for our first family getaway to PEI. Heather left a lovely note on the door, some bottled water in the fridge and another note inside. The apartment was immaculate and tastefully decorated. The street is very quiet and yet so close to everything Charlottetown has to offer (mostly within walking distance). There was a park with a playground one block away, Cows Ice Cream two blocks away and the harbour front a short 10 minute walk. I traveled with my husband and two children, 7 and 9 years old. We felt the apartment was spacious enough that we all enjoyed some quiet relaxation. Thank you Heather for your warm PEI hospitality!

Relaxed in PEI

  • 5 of 5
I cannot tell you how wonderful this apartment was for one whole week! It was clean, well appointed, comfortable and within a short walk to downtown. Then there was the short walk to the boardwalk and
around the park area. All within minutes! I hated to leave and can assure anyone else choosing this
spacious apartment that you will feel the same way. It felt like home. How many times can you say
that about a place that you visit? I will go back and hope that you will feel the same.

Elegant apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5
We rank this in our top 5 vacation rentals around the world. The rental is one of 4 units on site, but very quiet. Exquisitely clean in every corner. The decor is what you would find in a magazine for house beautiful. Designer dishes, bedding, and a generous supply of fluffy towels. A tiny garden and forest outside the kitchen window. Deck with bright stripped cushions (open the trunk) and a fire pit. All is clear when you meet the charming, elegant owner--it is as though she is lending her home while she is away. Only drawback is second bedroom blinds let in street lights at night and early morning light, bring a sleep mask.
Location is perfect for walking to sites, restaurants, stores. We loved Hunter's Ale pub despite the age gap. Best lobster and fresh scallops to cook at home at Lobster on the Wharf, tell Don we sent you. He will cook the lobster that you select. Think about buying shoes if you want style and ability to walk --Canadian stores stock styles not seen in LA from France and Germany.

Don't miss the free performances at the Confederation Center--especially the troupe at 12:30 that celebrate European immigrants to Canada with a charming nod to Chinese with clever dragon dance.

A Winter Home

  • 5 of 5
Wow! For 3 winters, we stayed in this apartment and experienced life at its best. The layout, the amenities, the decor, the parking, the location and the owners are the very best. We loved the accessibility to the life and culture of Charlottetown. So much so, that we have purchased a property very close to this apartment to continue this great experience!

Thank you, Heather and Don, for a super winter rental.
