Great cottage on the beach!
Myself, my husband, our baby and my in-laws stayed at this cottage the second week of June 2014. The cottage was perfect. It was about 30-35 minutes from Charlottetown and was a good base of operations for touring around the province. The property was very well maintained and clean. The beds were comfortable and the bedroom upstairs had a spectacular view out over the water. The kitchen had all the basics that we needed to cook an inordinate amount of seafood that week. The listing description was very accurate and we had no surprises. Although the weather was chilly, it didn't stop us from enjoying the beach which was directly accessible from the property. The owners provid a golf cart to drive down to the beach if you need it. If you don't, the 5 minute walk down the back lawn is lovely. We were able to clam dig right on the beach and we could walk for kms when the tide was out. We also found a few super helpful things in the cottage such as a couple of coolers which we could use to store the lobsters (and ice) from the wharf to home. The decks were great and the new gazebo was lovely. Since the bugs were non existent we didn't have the opportunity to use it. The cottage is 5 minutes away from a local chowder house and a lighthouse. The local gas station & grocer (Cooper's) is less than 10 minutes away. The ferry to NS is a 20 min drive away. There are a few wharfs in the area where we were able to buy fresh lobster. We ate lobster at least once every day. We ran into one issue with the internet connection fluctuating and when we contacted the owners they got right on top of it and helped us to get everything up and running again. We found Larry & Ayelet super friendly and genuinely interested in having us enjoy our stay as much as possible. We also appreciated the nightly wildlife entertainment. Without fail, every night, we were treated to a grey fox prancing around the yard hunting for dinner. Pretty successful little fox too. We saw a skunk on another evening (the fox thought better of that one) and a few bunnies and one jack rabbit. Lots of cormorants too. One thing to note for all PEI tourists...very little is open on the Island until June 15. We drove to a lot of places and were met with a lot of locked doors. Hindsight being 20/20 we would have booked for July or August. All in all, a great place to stay and we would recommend this to anyone looking for a private cottage on it's own beach away from it all.
