Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Hi there and thanks for giving us a look!

We are pleased to offer you our condo-The Briggs Suite- for your stay on PEI. The Briggs Suite is ideal for two adult couples, two business travelers from the same company or a family of four, each having its own queen sized bedroom and its own separate bathroom. With all of the amenities we include, plus a fabulous downtown Charlottetown location on the waterfront, plus a reasonable rate when shared between two couples, two business travelers or a family of four, we think you will find us to be of incredible value compared to the cost of two hotel rooms. We have been given a 4.5 star rating by Tourism PEI, the highest rating given to any other condo in the area. We are within a very short walking distance of the new Charlottetown Convention Center, the Charlottetown Events Grounds and Confederation Landing Park.

We are directly on the waterfront with harbor views from every window. Two decks overlook the water and Confederation Landing Park and are complete with patio furniture for afternoon tea, cocktails, sunset viewing and barbecuing. We are a short walking distance from the new Charlottetown Convention Center, the downtown Charlottetown Indoor Mall and the Charlottetown Events Grounds. Live theater at the Confederation Center of the Arts and outdoor bistro dining on Queen Street and at Victoria Row are less than a five minute walk away.

Getting Here....

Prince Edward Island is accessible via Air Canada year round and from a US gateway during the summer months.

Charlottetown can also be reached easily by car from Boston (11 hours), New York (15 hours), Toronto, Montreal and Quebec via the impressive Confederation Bridge which connects PEI directly to mainland New Brunswick at Tormentine.

Directions from the Eastern US:

Take I95 through Maine to Houlton, ME/Woodstock, NB. Then follow the Trans Canada Highway (Route 2) across New Brunswick passing Fredericton and Moncton to Tormentine. From the PEI side of the bridge, follow the TCH (Route 1 on PEI) into Charlottetown. Take the bypass around Charlottetown into the waterfront district. We are at the junction of Water Street and Hillsborough Street directly next to the Water Street Visitor's Center and Founder's Hall. The exact address is #1 Stan MacPherson Way in The Roseport building.

Directions from Toronto, Montreal and Quebec:

Pick up the Trans Canada Highway (Route 2) at Edmundston, NB which is at the Quebec border in Western New Brunswick. Follow the directions above to The Roseport. Travel time from Fredericton to Moncton is about 2 hours and from Moncton to Charlottetown is about 3 hours.

Please note that the Confederation Bridge is a toll bridge with the toll only being collected upon your departure from PEI. The present toll is $46.00 CAD.

Please check out the Gallery and Recreation pages of our personal website as some of the photos shown there were taken at this location. There is a link to PEI Vacations on the Waterfront from this site to our homepage.

Again, thanks for giving us a look and we look forward to welcoming you at The Roseport.

Sincerely,

Jeff and Miriam - Owner/Operators

About The Owner

Miriam and I are both 'washed ashore' from the states having grown up in New York and coastal New England respectively. Miriam received her undergraduate degree and MBA from Columbia (NYC) and Jeff graduated from Washington & Lee University (VA). We both are professionals. Jeff is a retired commercial banking VP from New York and Miriam completed a long stint as a marketing executive at one of the top IT companies in the world. She is looking forward to greeting guests to the island. We both like to travel ourselves (having done all seven continents) and know what we like when we get somewhere in terms of a first class experience. We believe we are offering one here with this harbor front property. Thanks for your interest and we hope to hear from you....

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Charlottetown

Miriam and I chose to purchase rental property here because Prince Edward Island offers a remarkable vacation experience with its quaint fishing villages, rolling hills resembling those of Northern Switzerland and its pristine beaches. It is much like Cape Cod in many ways but without all the people....in most places on this island the word 'traffic' does not even exist in one's lexicon! Additionally, visitor's to PEI will find a friendly welcome from almost everyone and there exists a spirit of community that is very real here. The Scottish tradition of Celtic music and step-dancing still lives on here on PEI and summer CEILDH's (Celtic music concerts) abound in almost every larger community during the summer months. Weather-wise, there actually is a real summer here (despite the more Northerly latitude) with temperatures in late June, July and August topping out at about 73-76 degrees Fahrenheit (about 23-24C). On most days there is an offshore breeze and air conditioning (while we offer it) is not usually necessary. Temperatures do cool down to the low 60's on most nights in summer and at the end of August it can feel like a September evening would feel on Cape Cod. I guess to sum it up, this place is a just a great spot to 'unwind', 'smell the flowers' and 'relax for a week or two' before resuming the daily pace of life that probably exists in your hometown.

What makes this condo unique

If I were to pick a few phrases to describe our Roseport location, these would be among them: Location, Location, Location and Views, views, views and more water views! Elegance and first-class amenities... Walking distance to just about everything - the new Charlottetown Convention Centre/theatre/shopping/antique stores/outdoor bistros/great restaurants (e.g., Sims Steakhouse, Olde Dublin Pub). The availability of first class entertainment at the Confederation Centre of the Arts; It's all here and all of it is within a 5 minute walk from your doorstep!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your attention to detail is perfect, this is truly your home that you so graciously welcome guests into. We loved everything-2 nights dinner at Claddagh couldn't have been better, plus $1 oysters upstairs-w/ music!!! Blue Mussel on North Shore was an amazing find (in North Rustico). Perfect food, loc, owner.

Perfect Locations; Owners Provide Every Detail

  • 5 of 5

Owners Jeff and Miriam have thought of everything. Not only is this condo beautiful with a fantastic view, it is equipped with everything a visitor could possibly need. That includes all supplies and a completely operational internet connected workstation with printer and fax. The condo is laid out beautifully and appointed with superb style. The owners took the time to show us around the condo and explain how everything works. There is a binder in the living room full of attractions and restaurants. The location of the condo is perfect for two reasons. First, it is central to PEI for exploring the island in every direction. Secondly, the condo is right in the center of the best part of Charlottetown....it was so easy to walk to all the beautiful attractions and the best places to dine. Everything about staying at this condo was convenient. We hope to return to PEI again and hope we will find this condo available when we do.

Cavendish Beach Festival

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a find for our long weekend in PEI. We waited too late to book something close to the concert venue and had to stay in Charlottetown. So glad we did!!!! The town is lovely with lots of places to eat and drink and great music. Like the rest of this beautiful place, the condo was immaculate, well appointed and within walking distance to town. Jeff and Miriam met us when we arrived gave a in-depth intro to their town and the layout this luxurious condo. Thanks, for sharing your home with us. We look forward to our return. Perfect for 2 couples.

Fabulous location to celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday!

  • 5 of 5

Our girls' escape weekend with my sister & 2 adult nieces was especially enjoyable thanks to the kind hospitality of Jeff & Miriam. We were greeted in the parking lot, offered luggage assistance and given the guided tour of a first class condo unit. The amenities went above & beyond with even a personalized "blackboard" sign on the counter welcoming us!! Not only did they offer great suggestions for restaurants/ entertainment but also provided a very professional binder containing everything from "soup to nuts" for visitor information. We made this our "home away from home" by enjoying happy hour(s) on the deck overlooking the harbour, having fun with the games/cards readily available and drinking freshly brewed coffee each morning. Location was perfect, in that, we could walk to historic downtown, the theater...& of course, COWS ice-cream shop!! Even an unexpected thunder storm causing a brief power outage didn't dampen our spirits as candles & BBQ lighter were within easy reach. I appreciated their prompt response by email or phone when we had questions prior to arrival & also arranging for us to check-in a bit earlier. This being my first experience with Paypal, Jeff kindly guided me through the process to receive my security deposit quickly & efficiently. This condo unit is at the top of our list for future trips to P.E.I. .. with its well-appointed furnishings, its location & true display of good, old-fashioned Maritime hospitality!!

Luxury Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Charlottetown could not have been more perfect! From the beautiful, well-furnished, spotless and well located condo to the gracious hostess, Miriam. Miriam and Jeff have thought of everything that you could possible need. We enjoyed watching the ships come into port and being able to walk to Peakes Wharf, many restaurants and shops. Restaurants that we would recommend: Peakes Quay, Lobster on the Wharf, Water-Prince Corner Shop, Leonhard's Café & Restaurant, Yolk Breakfast & Lunch, and Pizza Delight.

Be sure to sample Billy Timber Ice Cream at Peakes Whart. Tours: HippopotaBus, Prince Edward Island Brewing Co., Canadian Potato Museum, driving to Cavendish and Eastern Shore lighthouses. All-in-all, we had a memorable vacation on Prince Edward Island!

This is as close to perfection as you will come!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Briggs Suite - right from the start, booking (from the UK) was made easy - Jeff was so helpful and friendly, and when we arrived early, Jeff and Miriam were very accommodating. The apartment is just lovely - luxurious, well and beautifully furnished, and so much thought has been given to making visitors feel welcome and to meet their every need - including emergency supplies, internet access & printing, basic needs (coffee, tea, etc) and fab laundry - so useful when travelling away from home for weeks on end! The condo is excellently placed - an easy stroll into town for the restaurants, pubs, etc, and a stone's throw from the wharf where evenings can be whiled away over a drink or an ice cream. Our stay there was perfect. We loved it and if we ever come back that way, we would definitely stay there again. Thanks Jeff and Miriam for being such charming, thoughtful hosts.

Ideal Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at 'The Briggs Executive Condo' and it was excellent in every way. The owners and gracious hosts, Miriam and Jeff, welcome you and make you feel right at home and you know from the start that this is going to be a special vacation. Their well-appointed, super clean condo has everything you could possibly want......full appliances, utensils, dishes, wine glasses, condiments tea, coffee, lush towels and linens etc. They have everything covered; even if you might have forgotten something.....it is well stocked! Air conditioning is a plus for those hot days and nights. As well, 2 beautiful decks, one off the spacious master bedroom and one from the living room provide amazing views of the ever changing harbour front landscape. This is our first choice of places to stay when visiting the Island!
