I believe Charlottetown is one of the truly fine small cities in North America. It is a very safe city. The city retains it's historic charm and beauty. It has a very good arts and culture scene. The city has very good restaurants that are moderately priced.
The Airbnb properties I have are some of the most historic buildings in the city of Charlottetown and are on the Canadian Registry of Historic Buildings. These buildings retain much of their original character. They are located on the Charlottetown waterfront and they are close to all of the attractions in the city as well as being only half a block from the Delta Prince Edward Hotel and Convention Centre.
I have 3 children. Megan, the eldest, assists me with the Airbnb. She is a theatre artist based in Charlottetown and Vancouver and is a graduate of Simon Fraser and Mcgill University. Sam is a graduate of NSCAD university and is a photographer, traveler, and full time bicycle afficionado.
