Overview

Darnley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

PEI Beach Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bathroom, sleeps 6-8

Looking for a seaside getaway in a ultra modern cottage? Spend a week exploring one of the most picturesque areas on Prince Edward Island. Just a stroll away from Thunder Cove Beach, famous for its white stretching sands and massive dunes that leave you breathless. Indulge in a feed of world famous Malpeque oysters. Enjoy an outdoor lobster/corn boil (outdoor boiler provided) and a glass of wine by the fire pit. Minutes from golf courses, deep sea fishing, kayaking and other attractions such as Anne of Green Gables, The Haunted Mansion, Dairy Bar, Water parks, shopping and children's adventures. Treat yourself to one of Canada's Top 10 rated restaurants only 5 minutes away. Partake in a Malpeque Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) music festival at the Malpeque Women's Institute Hall - fiddling, stories, music and fresh Island ice cream and strawberries - every Wednesday evening just minutes from the cottage.

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.

Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for a family vacation! Everything was as promised, down to the last detail. We loved how close the beach was and spent a ton of time there. The cottage was beautiful, clean and spacious. Our best memories were made around the campfire roasting marshmellows! Highly recommended! Pam and Ed were a pleasure to deal with, I look forward to spending another week at their cottage as soon as possible.

perfectly decorated, spotless upon arrival, the beach is the best beach on PEI In my opinion, right at my door. Toss a towel over my shoulder an walk down in bare feet with my daughter...

The rooms are perfect size, kitchen is beautiful, and the yard is nice for my daughter to play / bonfire.

This is my go to place for my PEI vacations!

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!

Warmest regards, Pam & Ed.

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!!
