You Gotta Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to call this our home during our stay in Charlottetown! It is in an ideal location, walking distance to the downtown core and to the harbor. The house is full of charm, warmth and history! There was plenty of space inside for our family of 5 and the back yard was quiet, private and beautifully landscaped. My husband enjoyed cooking on the brand new barbeque! The owners were also very gracious and accommodating. If our travels bring us back to Charlottetown again, we would definitely love to stay in the Harbor house.

Excellent location & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Rented this beautiful home right in downtown Charlottetown for 5 days and used it as a hub to explore the entire island (drove every piece of it). Everything within striking distance and nice to return home back the 'big city' in the evening for a nice meal. The waterfront is a 5 minute walk and ditto for numerous restaurants. It was nice to bbq in the backyard and found the house had ample space to relax/lounge in. I would come back here again and beats staying at a hotel as you can set up house here like you would back home.

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family made good use of our home. It is a great base for touring the Island and refuting an oasis in the centre of things. Come back anytime. Cheers Karen

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!

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.
