About the property

This is one of Charlottetown's lovely historic buildings. Accurately dubbed, the Smiling House - with eighteen windows across the front of the building, when lit with candles at Christmas, looks like a smiling giant. The town house for rent is roughly two thousand square feet - has two very spacious bedrooms, a small room with bunk beds, and a huge living room with a fully equipped kitchen. Bathroom includes washer and dryer. Although the view is certainly worth it, be mindful of the stairs as it is three floors up.

- Full Kitchen stocked

- 2 min walk downtown

In choosing this location , you've placed yourself within the heart of the city center.

About JAMES HUGHES

My wife and I have been living in the Smiling house since it's purchase three years ago. We have slowly been bring it back to life, with many renovations.

We love PEI in the summer. It really is the best Canadian vacationing Province. We will be at the Marina if you ever want some sight seeing tips, or a helpful hand with anything.

JAMES HUGHES purchased this apartment in 2012

Why JAMES HUGHES chose Charlottetown

This property offers a unique Historical experience, with all the comfort of modern times. A quick five five minute walk and you are at the door to many of the town's fabulous restaurants. Placing yourself properly for your vacation is key. Except the ten minute ride to the airport, you won't even need a cab.

What makes this apartment unique

The size of the apartment is something that you won't see often. The laundry facilities are also an added bonus. Lastly , we have everything in the kitchen to suit your culinary requirements, including new appliances. The 3rd floor patio offers an eagle's eye view of the fully-fenced backyard which, although 3 flights down, is equipped with a BBQ, and hammock for the designated Cooking Morale Coach.

Clean and a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience staying here! We got our workout everyday going up and down the stairs 😃 And the location was perfect, within walking distance to downtown and Victoria park! The kitchen could use some new cookware though.

Location is the plus

  • 3 of 5

We had booked a smaller unit but apparently it was double booked, so we were offered the Smiling House in its place. Funky chic after climbing 29 steep, slanted steps. We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants and the theater. The king bed was very comfortable. All bedrooms were quite some distance from the one bath (which did not have a hair dryer!). Fortunately we had our own pillows to augment what was provided. Our "assigned" parking spot was sometimes taken. Wi-Fi seemed fine, but we could not get the TV to work. AC in living room was effective. Fan in bedroom window was needed.

Historic property downtown

  • 4 of 5

This is an older historic property in an excellent location close to downtown Charlottetown. There was everything we needed or expected when we arrived. The apartment was spacious and quiet.

Already talked about same location next year.

If you have problems with stairs ask for the first floor.

Perfect location, great with kids

  • 4 of 5

Jim and Angela were very welcoming and quick to help with some minor issues that arose early in our stay. This large apartment is the top floor of an old historic home in Charlottetown. The location is ideal for access to the convention center and downtown amenities on foot as well as very close to Victoria Park and the Ocean-side boardwalk, which the kids loved. The kids also enjoyed playing in the fenced-inn backyard and multitude of smaller parks in the neighbourhood. Would happily stay again.
