Photos and Description of the Charlottetown vacation apartment rental

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Located centrally, just steps from the heart of old Charlottetown, our legal luxury triplex is a former traditional centre-hall shingled house (originally built circa 1880) nestled on a professionally designed recently landscaped lot gently shaded by a stately century-old white ash tree.

Lovingly renovated in 2012, our main-floor 'Garden Suite' has a secluded 'get-away-from-it-all' feel that's rare to find in proximity to downtown. Inside, our freshly re-imagined airy and open-concept space features it's own private marble-tiled entrance, private cedar decked garden, three comfortable bedrooms (our comfy and efficient home office easily converts to accommodate 1 or 2 additional persons) with one queen and two full beds, featuring fresh, quality linens) each with it's own access to full bath or water closet. The suite features an L-shaped Great Room with a handsomely furnished dining and living area featuring hand-hewn beams, wide-plank flooring, art work by noted island artists, and a light-filled vaulted ceiling with operable skylight. The fully-fitted and equipped contemporary kitchen has 4 quality stainless steel appliances and a butcher block island. There is a separate laundry/storage room, a two-piece and an indulgent four-piece washroom with rain shower and deep soaking tub.

The property is situated on Upper Hillsborough Street, and is a brief ten-minute walk to Charlottetown Harbour, and the shops and restaurants of Water Street, Peakes Quay, Queen Street and Victoria Row. It's a few blocks to historic Great George Street and Province House, and an easy stroll to the waterfront boardwalk of 100+ acre Victoria Park with it's walking trails, sport fields, tennis courts and outdoor swimming pool. And we can't resist recommending our favorite independent coffee location, Young Folk and the Kettle Black, on Water Street!

Care to read more about the transformation of our century-old island triplex? It's been an adventure! We'll be happy to send you the link to our engaging blog on the matter - send us a quick email!
