A beautiful "home away from home" for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy and Bobby were just wonderful! They kept in touch with us during our stay to let us know things that were going on while we were in Charlottetown. We were able to walk to restaurants and buy groceries at a local market. We were on the receiving end of extraordinary hospitality and would definitely recommend booking this home! The Grove Family

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your retreat with us. We had an excellent week in PEI and your home was perfect for our family to get together while attending our daughters graduation from the Veterinary University. Your location was an easy walk to downtown and it was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely book your home again if we were ever on the island again.

Beautiful & modern home, on a quiet historic street at the center of all Charlottetown has to offer!

Warren Buffet says, don't just satisfy your customers, DELIGHT them. We were absolutely delighted, indeed, and cannot say enough great things about this wonderful downtown house. It took our vacation to a whole new level of fantastic. The absolute BEST!

Four of us spent 4 lovely nights there last week and loved every minute. We came from Nova Scotia, were celebrating a special birthday and were excited to get away. The house was absolutely perfect for us. It was sparkling and clean. It was well equipped. We enjoyed the special touches around every corner. The kitchen had everything including a keurig, the wifi was perfect and the beds were so comfortable. There was lots of area to lounge too. As seniors, we enjoyed having a bathroom on each floor and the convenience of a washer/dryer.

The added bonus was our gracious hosts. Kathy & Bobby, were just so kind. They went above and beyond with everything. They were flexible with our check-in, had run around and purchased flowers, chocolates and cookies with a card (as per our daughter's special request) for our arrival. We liked having a keyless entry. They also met us and gave us a full tour of the property, took photos and sent them to our daughter, and surprised us with a special birthday gift the day before we left. Our damage deposit was immrediately refunded on our exit day. We all said we were treated like royalty.

Beyond the house, there was much to see and do. We could walk everywhere with ease. It was such fun. The Old Triangle pub had a great Ceilidh on Sunday afternoon, we enjoyed the Farmer's Markeet, had the Fall Festival dinner at Mavor's at the Confederation Centre, loved the final night of the musical Les Belle Soeurs, went to the Guild theater to see the fabulous Anne & Gilbert musical, shopped and strolled. Arts and culture are alive and thriving on the island. There is something for everyone. We even got to the Casino for a delicous meal and the movie theatre for Bridget Jone's Baby.

Thank you so much for making our trip to PEI such an incredible experience. We plan to make this an annual trek. HIGHLY recommended!

Wonderful home in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home! We had ALL the comforts of home in a quaint neiighborhood but only a short 15 minute walk to downtown shops & restaurants. Bobby & Kathy couldn't have been more accommodating although I didn't have any problems or wants for anything not already in this lovely home. Would definitely return!
