Great location, spacious, clean, comfortable old charming character house
We loved it. Thanks Nancy and Phil. We stayed for 4 weeks. It was so close to downtown, made getting around by foot very easy. Lots of wonderful restaurants, activities, shopping and sight seeing. We were a large family group and found the house spacious, comfortable and clean. Bedrooms good size and beds comfortable.
A/C downstairs, fans for all the bedrooms. Kitchen had all necessary equipment (except a tea kettle) that we required. Loved having the laundry. Nancy and Phil always replied to any questions within a 24 hour period. I might just suggest a little further instructions for the PEI recycling system, it is very specific. Would not hesitate to rent this property again. It is on a very historical street with many character homes.
Donna and her gang were great tenants, totally self sufficient, and on the go all the time. After a full four week stay they left the house in immaculate condition. It’s was a total pleasure having them. Welcome back any time.
Perfect for our extended family
Our family of grandparents, parents and children thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Charlottetown property. This is an old, charming and well cared for home located within walking distance of the important downtown sites. We made good use of the kitchen - large and well equipped and enjoyed the spacious dining room for our meals and nightly board games. In the early evening, we often gathered on the back porch for a glass of wine and to plan our activities for the next day while keeping an eye on the children playing in the yard. We all slept well in the comfortable and attractive bedrooms, managed just fine with the one huge and one half bath and appreciated the laundry facilities in the 'spooky' basement (as the kids would say).
Charlottetown served as an excellent central location for daily trips to the beaches and other sites but it was an evening at the theatre to watch the performance of 'Anne of Green Gables' that won the popularity vote, hands down.
Great property on PEI!!
We had a wonderful trip to PEI and loved staying in this charming home!
We came to PEI looking to enjoy what the island has to offer. This house was so well located I couldn't have asked for more. We enjoyed the stay to the max.
The Nancy Willis Home Away rental worked extremely well for us, the home met all of our needs.
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.
We enjoyed this great large house and would recommend
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!
