One word: Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here and absolutely loved it! The cottage is delightful and very clean. Loved the beautiful sandy beach that was by the cottage about 2 minutes walk. Stunning. Relaxing. Peaceful. I would highly recommend this lovely cottage for a romantic getaway or with a family with children. Fresh and delicious seafood shopping is nearby as well as excellent golf courses.

Pure Magic!

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible time on our vacation here! Everything was as advertised and the home was clean and cozy. The beach was a lovely walk down the road and easily the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. My vacation was in the company of my wife and three small children and we found the home's size more than adequate and even though we had some rainy days, those were some of the most magical memories for our little girls on the beach!

Back Again!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to this great cottage. It is our new home away from home. My husband and our four children love it here. It has everything you need and its very roomy. It fits our family of six just fine. The beach is also very nice...just a short stroll from the cottage. Its also very central to all the attractions, even though its in a very private & peaceful area. We will be back!!

Lovely August Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our visit to Saltscapes was a wonderful time of rest, relaxation, and peace. We traveled 1100 miles with another couple to see PEI after a 35 year gap in visits! Having grown up going to PEI, camping every year on the north shore as a child/teenager, I was expecting to see what my memories told me to expect, and I was not disappointed: beautiful, unspoiled beaches (Thunder Cove remains in my mind one of the most lovely in the world!), wind swept dunes, the greens of the potato fields, an abundance of lighthouses and long, red clay roads. It was truly all that I had hoped to see! The food was amazing and the Ship to Shore restaurant, just minutes down the road, is a place you must try! Excellent cuisine. Much golf was played at four different courses, all on the north shore, many walks on the beach, an afternoon tea at Dalvey-By-The-Sea, and the cottage itself was everything the photos show it to be. We loved the art work throughout the cottage, very fitting to the surroundings. We appreciated the peaceful atmosphere to rest and to read many books out on the lovely, sunny porch and the ability to walk to the beach at any given moment was a huge factor in choosing Saltscapes. Our time there was well worth the very long drive. We hope to visit Saltscapes again on our next trip north! Thank you, Pam and Ed, for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. And thank you for sharing the island hospitality as well. PEI remains my favorite destination :-)

Charming and Inviting Cottage by the Sea!

  • 4 of 5
Our initial arrival at Saltscapes was just as Tropical Storm Irene slammed into the Island. We spent the first day hunkered down as the pounding rain and unrelenting winds, pummelled the cottage and area. What an experience!!

Fortunately late afternoon the following day the storm finally abated and we spent the rest of our week enjoying lots sunshine and warm temperatures.

We found the cottage so cozy, bright, clean and well equipped overall. Only a short walk away was Thunder Cove Beach which was a wonderful place to spend time relaxing and enjoying the great sea air! During our many visits to PEI we have been to alot of beaches but, in our opinion, Thunder Cove is one of the most beautiful on the Island! Also the view from the cottage deck of Morrison Pond was so ethereal and picturesque.

Saltscapes location was ideal. Just a short drive to Summerside, Kensington, Cavendish, deep sea fishing, great restaurants and fantastic golf courses. What more can you ask for while on vacation!

There was only one minor drawback to our stay. In the description of the amenities for Saltscapes it included a TV. We discovered shortly after our arrival when trying to get updated weather info about Tropical Storm Irene that the TV functioned only as a receiver for the DVD player only. No cable or satellite hook-up. We were forunate in that the weather improved. However if it hadn't the lack of a connected TV could have been a disadvantage to us.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Saltscapes and hope to return when we next visit your beautiful Island!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We were so relieved that the storm passed you by quickly and you were able to enjoy some sunshine on your holiday. We are very pleased to hear that you were comfortable and cozy during your stay. On Homeaway we list the TV/DVD as a setup for watching movies only, but we are planning on installing a flat screen TV and basic cable in 2012 for guests, like yourself, that would like a news source, etc. while at the same time enjoying the serenity of the area and cottage. Thanks again and we hope to have you back. Sincerely, Ed & Pam.

A Beautiful week in PEI!!

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I, and our four children absolutely loved the Saltscapes Retreat. With such a big family sometimes its hard to find a place that fits us comfortably. Well this cottage did just that. It has such a nice layout that noboy was in the others way. I always over pack, but you don't have to if your going there because there was everthing you need and more. It actually felt like our own cottage because of everything that was available for us to use. It is just a short walk to the beach, and the beach was so peaceful and private. I don't have one bad thing to say about the cottage, it was located of the beaten track, but kind of right in the middle of all the things we wanted to go see and do. We are definatley coming back sometime. Also just wanted to say that Pam & Ed were so great to deal with. I really enjoyed comuting back and forth with Pam. If your looking for a very clean well decorated cottage this is the one.
