Wonderful downtown location within walking distance to all that Charlottetown has to offer!

We look forward to your stay!

Hi!! We are Nancy and Steve, the proud new owners of “Parkview on Richmond”. We moved to Prince Edward Island three years ago, Steve is actually an Islander, and have immersed ourselves fully in all that this beautiful place has to offer. Our next step was to buy a property to convert to Airbnb so that we could bring our enthusiasm for what PEI has to offer to our guests and give them a wonderful experience. When purchased the house was in total need of some massive TLC, and had to undergo a total re-do from top to bottom into a gorgeous three unit complex. Significant renovations have been undertaken to bring the home from a forlorn property to a gorgeous purpose built complex teeming with possibilities. After 18 months of very hard work it is now time to share our property with you. Through Steve’s work as an Oracle Computer Consultant we have been fortunate to have traveled to over 24 countries and have made extensive use of B&B’s and recently Airbnb’s. We first fell in love with the Bed and Breakfast concept in 1993 while experiencing them for the first time while traveling through New Zealand. We loved the B&B concept as it gave us the opportunity to meet many interesting people from all parts of the world, and to have a unique opportunity to learn about the local community through our hosts. Through the knowledge gained over these years we were eager to start our own property and welcome guests to experience a one of a kind stay while in Charlottetown. I am an avid amateur photographer and can often be found wondering the back roads of the Island photographing its scenery. There is so much beauty packed into a small space and any drive you decide to take will lead you to places that will take your breath away. Steve was an avid golfer and has played most of the courses on the Island and would be happy to share his knowledge with you. Both Steve and I love to experience good food and on the Island there are plenty of options for that, especially if you love seafood as there is an abundance of places to help you get your fill. Although known as the Gentle Island, PEI is brimming with activities for you and your family during your much anticipated holidays. From beaches, plays, ceildhs to keep your toes a tapping, concerts etc. there is bound to be something for everyone in your party!!
