Description of Historic Heritage Place

18-22 Water Street is a Second Empire style, three story, wooden home that has been converted into apartments. Built in 1871 by John Roach Bourke for his son, the home is located on the historic Charlottetown waterfront.

The home has a spectacular view of the Charlottetown harbor. The beautiful building is located on a section of Water Street that contains a high concentration of heritage homes. 18-22 Water Street is a vital part of the Water Street streetscape and over the years ran into disrepair. In 2010, the owners Gretha Rose and Derrick Walker, bought the property and began the long road of renovations. In 2015, they received the Jewel Heritage Award for their work in preserving this historic building and this important part of history.

About Gretha Rose

My husband Derrick and I started renovating this heritage property from the ground up almost 5 years ago. We also have a cottage in the country where we live for 1/2 of the year, located about an hour from Charlottetown. We have two dogs. A purebred mini Aussie called Kit and a new Mexican mutt called Canelo.

I am recently retired from executive producing television. As many of my series, including the popular Chef Michael Smith brand, have been centered around food and local experiences, I can guarantee that PEI is one of the most beautiful places to vacation. We will be available to assist and answer any questions.

One of a kind home in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Charlottetown is a small city with lots of beautiful 19th century homes. This is your chance to stay in one! Although the home has been restored, most of the historical charm remains. The dining and living rooms are beautiful. Despite this, the kitchen and bathrooms are very modern and of the standards you would expect in a luxury home today. The home was extremely clean and there was plenty of room for all 7 of us. The home is located very close to all of the shops and restaurants of downtown (7 minutes walking). Despite being close to downtown, the location is very quiet and the views from the back porch out on the water are spectacular. We were only there 3 days, and we were able to see 2 cruise ships sail by! I would definitely stay here again, and will definitely recommend this home to anyone that I know is visiting Charlottetown. Thanks Gretha and Derrick!

Fantastic home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing and was more that we were expecting. Very well maintained, well stocked and the location was fantastic. Early mornings on the back patio taking in the view were some of our best memories. We were a large group ( 8 people) and did not feel crowded at all. Our hosts were great and very helpful throughout our stay. I will be trying to book this property the next time I am in PEI.

The house is lovely. We had lots of space for the six of us and the kitchen was wonderful.

The location was perfect for us. An easy walk to downtown, with beautiful views of the harbour. Nice, quiet location with convenient parking in the back. Derrick and Gretha were very helpful. No complaints at all and we would definitely stay there again!

Can't imagine anything more perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this beautiful historic home overlooking the waterfront. Every aspect of this experience was perfect! The home is spacious and spotless. The home is absolutely lovely and beautifully decorated by someone with an eye for detail. The location is so central that you can walk to the top restaurants in less than 5 minutes. I loved sitting out in the yard watching the sailboats in the morning drinking my tea. The kitchen is uber modern with everything you could ever need and the dining room exquisite. Beds are comfy with top quality linens. I travel a lot internationally for business and have state a t a lot of great places but can't imagine anywhere more perfect!
