Amazing location with great character. Check in was very easy. Host made the stay very relaxing. Sleeps many people comfortably. In the end can't beat the location.
Great host ... great location ... beautiful home! First class all the way.
My husband and myself and 5 of our family members stayed at Don's place for 3 nights. It was the perfect spot for seniors and kids and everyone else because the house is within walking distance to restaurants, ice cream, the waterfront and bars. Brackley Beach was just a 20 minute drive away. The large kitchen and dining room enabled us to have meals and snacks together at home if we chose to. There was lots of space both in the house and the big back yard behind the house. It was a bit loud at night but we had our own small air conditioner in the room so we all slept well. Our bed and linens were very comfortable. Don was a great host before and during our stay. He gave us some good restaurant recommendations and tips about the town. Everyone was very happy with the house and we had a wonderful family vacation. We would not hesitate to return. Thank you!

Great host. Lovely house - really beautiful, comfy beds, nice common area, and very central downtown location. Just a bit noisy late night with people coming home from the bar - noisy drunk people, just outside our window.
What a great stay! Don was more than hospitable and very knowledgeable about the area. You are located in a great part of town and everything is walking distance away. The accommodations were great and the beds were very comfy. We wish we could have stayed longer. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Don was a great host with helpful suggestions. The brick apartment was a lovely place to stay in Charlottetown. Very convenient location and beautiful furnishings.
