                                                              Thank you so much! We love visitors who are adventurous and have researched their trip to PEI. The Island has so much to offer we're happy to provide a way to enjoy that. Thanks for choosing our home. Karen

                                                              Excellent location & comfortable

                                                              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.

                                                              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

                                                              You Gotta Stay Here!

                                                              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.

                                                              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!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you so much. We always look forward to seeing you!

                                                              Fabulous place to stay. Close to everything.


                                                              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.
