Perfect holiday spot

A perfect spacious and clean house convenient to everywhere in town, many beach options close by. Quiet at night despite being only blocks from all the action. Highly recommended!

Fabulous place to stay. Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay in Charlottetown. Great location, well stocked kitchen and lovely garden to relax and BBQ in the evenings. We highly recommend staying here and will definitely be back. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Our children now want to move there! I think that sums up how great this place is. There are books galore and games. Our children didn't want to go anywhere and were quite happy just to relax and wander down the road for an ice-cream.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy, clean and had all the comforts of home. The central downtown location was within walking distance of many attractions including shopping, restaurants, lobster boats, kayak rentals, theatre and outdoor entertainment. Perfect spot to enjoy all that Charlottetown has to offer and a quick drive to the beach!

Delightfully Central House in Old Charlottetown!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this historic property for two weeks in July. We drove from Virginia for a family wedding and it was perfect for our needs. The location could not have been more central to historic sites and restaurants. (We enjoyed Papa Joe's and went back several times but all were good!) We walked to the wharf every day and enjoyed the concerts and lobster rolls at the corner of Prince. Property was super clean and quiet. Mattresses were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. We especially liked the old hardwood floors and antique wooden trim and the big bright windows. Enjoyed the abundant channels on TV that kept us in touch with home even while on vacation. The owners were most gracious and we hope to return in the future!

Harbour Master House is located in the heritage area of Charlottetown, the capital of PEI. This is where the Father's of Confederation decided to form Canada. It's 2 blocks from the waterfront, a stroll to the Provincial Legislature, National Art Gallery, Theatres, shops, antiques and galleries, restaurants, tours on land and water, live music and clubs. A lovely area to stroll.

You are a short drive to beaches, harness racing, the National Park with parabolic dunes, award winning golf courses, deep sea fishing, lobster dinners and Anne of Green Gables country. Guests appreciate that they are not far from anything yet can enjoy a well appointed home and garden in quiet privacy. The house is also a great base for enjoying Canada Day Celebrations, Art In The Open, the PEI Jazz and Blues Festival and the International Shellfish festival.
