About Sandra & Ernie Morello

We both love the unique character of this building with its: post and beam construction, wide baseboards, door frames, high ceilings, stair cases and interesting history. Even the large Linden and Elm trees out front add a grandeur to the site.

Sandra & Ernie Morello purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Sandra & Ernie Morello chose Charlottetown

We decided to convert one of the apartments into a vacation rental in 1996 after staying in some furnished units in Quebec. The aspect of renting an apartment while on vacation appealed to both of us and we thought our building was well located and offered the travelling public an alternative to hotels and B&B's.

What makes this apartment unique

Brighton Tourist Apartments

1. Well furnished and well equipped

2. The apartments border the perimeter of Victoria Park, a 60 acre park with: a waterfront walk, tennis courts, gardens, children's playgrounds, swimming pool, wooded trails and sports fields.

Excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by visiting PEI in September 2014. Our stay at the Brighton Vacation Apartment was wonderful and suited our needs exceptionally. Walking distance to downtown and Victoria Park and Government House. Bikes available from the owners was an added bonus and we had a taste of biking the Confederation Trail. Parking our small rental car in the back area worked well; having a car to explore the island was great. Sandra was very warm and welcoming, helpful in providing local and island information, and providing a few provisions, including refreshing beverages and celebratory champagne was wonderful. Cooking our own meals after a day of sightseeing worked very well for the 2 of us. The historic neighbourhood added charm.

When we get a chance, would love to go back again.

Great apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Charlottetown recently to visit aging parents and attend the Fall Flavours Culinary Festival. Working with Sandra was a delight from start to finish. We arrived very late (1:30 am): instructions for the apartment key and parking instructions were excellent. The owners had provided some staples so we were able to have coffee and breakfast without having to run out and immediately shop. The apartment was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Location was excellent for walking downtown, to the Confederation Center, to the festival at the exhibition grounds to nearby restaurants and to the beautiful water Boardwalk. Sandra and Ernie were available for any questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the island and would highly recommend the Brighton Apartments if you are looking for a comfortable accommodation in a historic home close to downtown Charlottetown.

This place transformed our stay into something marvelous

  • 5 of 5

A true paradise and an amazingly lucky find online! My husband and I travelled with our two moms so we rented two suites, one for them and one for us. Our stay was five nights. We all loved it. It was so nice to "come home" to after a day of sightseeing. We actually ate most of our meals at the Brighton Tourist Apartments just because it was so cozy we didn't think we could improve on dinner by going out. It's a handy location for walking, either to downtown or the park. Sandra and Ernie are thoughtul and considerate hosts. There were staples in the kitchen when we arrived (bread, butter, milk, coffee, tea and more) and there's laundry on site with laundry soap provided. Bikes are available and Sandra brought us an umbrella when it looked like rain and a picnic kit when we thought it might be sunny. We never lacked a thing. A very comfortable bed and everything works in the suite, high speed wi-fi internet, TV, plumbing, it's all good. Very tastefully decorated with nice art on the walls. If only I travelled to Charlottetown more often, which is probably not going to happen! Definitely a 5 out of 5 for gold stars.

Beyond our expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first VRBO experience. Upon arrival we were astounded by how well equiped the apartment was. No detail has been left out in preparing this home away from home!!! Our hostess Sandra was super helpful in providing a brief orientation chuck full of useful information. The location is truly in the hub with the boardwalk, and downtown dining/shopping is an easy 10 minute walk. We spent three wonderful nights here and presently are enjoying the lovely working fireplace on a night unexpectedly chilly with the provided three hour logs. Sandra has covered all scenarios with meticulous detail. This place is five-star all the way!!!! Look no further people! You have arrived. Thanks Sandra.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Thouroughly enjoyed this place. Very clean, welll maintained, walking distance to everything. The owners are very hospitable, fresh bread and a stocked kitchen for the beginning of your stay.

Enjoyed the Water Prince corner shop, and had a great bike ride on the bikes provided on the Confederation Trail. Victoria Park right across the street is a beautiful place to walk and then take the boardwalk to downtown.

We will definitely come back and highly recommend it.
