Stayed: July 2012
If you’re anything like me, short, fat, lazy and extremely fussy then this is the place for you! My wife decided that she wants to vacation in Canada this year, and yes she gets to decide sometimes, so I figured that Prince Edward Island would be the perfect place the last week of July. I’ve never rented a cottage before, I normally stay at resorts or hotels where if something goes wrong I can pick up the phone and yell at the someone who studied hotel management, so this was a difficult thing for me to find the right place and deal directly with the owners, making it a little too personal for me. Well let me tell you that the owners of this property are so amazing that I actually felt like I was staying with family even though I’ve never met or seen anyone of them. This cottage is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, set back from the road surrounded by tall trees with the Gulf of St Lawrence on one side with a red sandy beach and pond filled with ducks, herons and birds on the other side, the perfect place if you like privacy, the only noise I heard all week came from my wife, the cottage seems to be fairly new construction and has all the amenities you’ll ever need, from a fully equipped kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, wine glasses, condiments, spices, dishwasher, microwave and the list just goes on, they even had very decent selection of assorted wines, all the furniture is new, it has two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a king in the master bedroom and two single beds in the other, a screened porch in front, full swing set for the kids on the side, and I’m glad I left my kids at home, I went there to relax and that I did. The only reason why I figure they don’t have a five star rating is because there’s no marble jet tub or granite counter tops otherwise this place is five star service, they have an owners manual by the door that blew my mind, it has all the information you could possibly imagine, from how to open the bell express view satellite TV to when the tide comes in to where you can buy fresh fish. Overall this place was squeaky clean, all the comforts of home, so if you’re looking for the perfect place to relax and do nothing, enjoy the sunsets and a worry free stay then mention you read this so I can get a better deal next time.
