Delightful, warm, peaceful 175 year old heritage home. Walking distance to everything in the city. Great fenced backyard, safe quiet neighbourhood
The house was exactly as advertised - bright, airy, and well appointed. It was also very clean. It's in a great location, just a short walk to restaurants and the historic sites. Nancy was a fantastic host as well, ensuring we had everything we needed.
The property gave our family lots of space to either enjoy each other's company or private time on our own. The house was clean and beds were comfortable. We had off street parking that accommodated both of our vehicles. It's location made it easy to access stores, the downtown area and the wharf. Sobeys (large grocery store) was only a few blocks away. The backyard and porch were much appreciated since we had a family pet along with us. We were delighted to have the ability to use the washer/dryer but the steps going down to the basement were difficult.
We did a wildlife tour, enjoyed the Upstreet Brewery brews/food, and Tim Hortons, of course. Since the house is centered in Charlottetown we were able to take several day trip outings on the PEI.
My family grew up in a four corner home built in 1906 so we enjoyed this historical home's uniqueness.
This house was great for us. It is much bigger than the photos show. We had 4 adults and 2 children (5 & 8) and we had room to spare and entertain friends easily. It has a great patio and large back yard too. Keep in mind that this house is over 100 years old and some areas show age but that adds to the charm we think. The basement is downright creepy though, ha ha! The location is also great as you are just a few minute walk from grocery stores, a liquor store and only a few more minutes to downtown. Many rent cottages on PEI and we have before but as everything is so close we found staying in town our best experience yet.
Though we loved the house, here are a few areas where the experience could be improved:
• More cooking pots and pans and supplies. There was only one small frying pan and a few smaller pots. (Though Nancy did get us a larger lobster pot when I asked for it). Also some basic things like pepper were empty.
• A welcome note with house details would have helped. There was no instructions left about things like internet passwords, the air conditioner operation(it didn't work, but the hose stayed cool with fans), where things were, how garbage recycling works on PEI etc. Though we figured it all out, it would have been nice to just have a document when we arrived with this information.
• Lastly, Nancy was very accommodating and nice and mostly very responsive, but a few times there would be gaps in here response time to us which left it up to us to follow up on things.
We would 100% recommend this house and use it again, the improvement points above were veery minor. Thanks Nancy!
Walking distance to historic waterfront, grocery store and restaurants.
House was lovely, centrally located, easy to find, exactly as described online. We had to accommodate 7 people, only one couple among them, and everybody found their own contented space and privacy. Our search shows only a handful of houses in or near Charlottetown that can hold this many persons. Gardens, upstairs screened in sunroom, shady back porch delightful surprises. Large kitchen, dining room, comfortable seating throughout, quiet neighborhood. Highly recommend, would stay here again.
We had a fantastic stay at this heritage house. It was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Lots of living space for a larger family or group to spread out. Lovely bedrooms with comfortable beds; well equipped kitchen and large dining room. Nice private backyard and deck. Very close to everything you could want - walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, downtown, and other services. Owners were nearby and available if needed. We would definitely stay here again!!!
