Miminegash Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Sea Watch Cottage, situated at the end of a 1 kilometer private road, is located on a large 2.5 acre property affording spectacular views of the ocean, fishing boats and stunning sunsets. The fishing village of Miminegash is seen from the front deck and yard. It is at the north end of the 'pond' a large body of water over which you can see beautiful sunrises and watch many water fowl. A staircase over the cape leads to the wide red sandy beach and the ocean with the warmest temperatures north of the Carolinas, ideal for swimming and playing in the water. The beach extends for many K. in both directions. The fire pit is situated near the top of the cape so none of the beauty is ever lost during your stay. Walking south one can see the many windmills of West Cape and following the beach to the north brings you to the village of Miminegash, the fishing harbor with boats and a fresh daily supply of seasonal catch such as lobster. Our cottage is very clean and bright. It has 2 bedrooms one with a full master bath and King size bed and the other right next to the 2nd full bathroom having 2 single beds which can be converted into a King bed. A sofa-bed in the living room allows space for 2 extra people.

About Irene Huber (Manager)

We are a young professional couple from Toronto with 2 young children who fell in love with PEI the first time we visited. We cherish our peaceful time at the cottage which is a haven from our hectic city life.

Irene Huber (Manager) purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Irene Huber (Manager) chose Miminegash

We love nature, cottage living, beach holidays, great food (especially lobster)! This property has ocean, beautiful sand, stunning sunsets, and lots of space with natural forest to explore. It's more than we dreamed of and is always our perfect family getaway.

What makes this cottage unique

A typical day at the cottage for us starts with fresh coffee in the morning while watching the sun rise over the pond and the birds wake and greet the day. Mornings are great for a long walk or play on the beach. In the afternoon, swimming, napping, and making sand castles, followed by a walk to the harbour to meet the fishermen arriving with fresh lobster (early August to early October), or scallops in May/June. These dates are set differently each year.. After cleaning up with a fresh outdoor shower, dinner is made and served at a picnic table by a campfire overlooking the cape. We wait for the final show... an incredible sunset which never disappoints. Then, a good nights sleep, and repeat the next day!

Amazing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is perfection, do not miss the opportunity to rent it! My husband and I spent a wonderful week here. The cottage is beautifully decorated, has all modern conveniences, and is located on a very private lot with a large pond in the front and the ocean/beach in the back. We watched many birds in the pond, walked along the beach for miles and enjoyed the best sunsets we have ever seen. Additionally, we biked on the Confederation Trail, hiked and visited 2 lighthouses, enjoyed a lot of local seafood and lots of time to read and relax. The cottage is located in a quieter region of the island surrounded by fishing villages; the "tourist attractions" can be reached in about 1 1/2 hours, very accessible for day trips. We prefer staying away from crowds; we seek tranquility and enjoying all of the wonders of nature when vacationing; this is the perfect place for enjoying these things. The caretakers and manager are kind, helpful people who answered our many questions. This cottage is a rare gem, the finest rental we have ever stayed in!

Beautiful sunrise AND sunset

  • 5 of 5
Sea Watch Cottage was a great place to enjoy the ocean and also the tidal pools. The Cottage is located between the two which gives you a beautiful sunrise as well as a beautiful sunset. The house was very comfortable although we had some heavy rains and the road to the house was a bit muddy. This mud provided a unique look to the ocean front since the seas were rough. The ocean actually became a blood red. We were able to book this Cottage on short notice and it was delightful. The furnishings were excellent including a washer and dryer, a flat screen TV and all of the pleasures associated with having a place which is inhabited by others much of the time. We would like to caution you that the internet is limited to that service you can get by use of your cell phone. We did not have a Canadian cell phone therefore we were somewhat limited in our ability to connect with others. This would be a perfect location for anyone who wants to get away from the busyness of life and just relax. Perfect!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting a review of Seawatch Cottage and for telling of your appreciation of the cottage. Our guest book has so many of the same positive comments and we are happy to provide a vacation rental that is a pleasure to be at.
We are sorry that your phone plans did not include a 3 or 4 G cellular network making it difficult to connect to the internet. Unfortunately you did not communicate your concern to me (Manager), as I was at a cottage less than 1/2 K away and would have happily helped you resolve the problem. The roads are a factor of weather but are always totally passable in the rental months.

Had a wonderful time here

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was great - facilities were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The view was exceptional and the beach was great! We were looking for a place to relax and get away - this was just the right place. We have stayed on PEI before but this was the best. Lobster just a short walk down the beach and scallops from the neighbour down the road. The only thing a little annoying was the mosquitos but this was nothing the owners can do anything about - it's just nature. Thanks for a wonderful stay - we would definitely return.

Wonderful place to relax

  • 5 of 5
The property was incredible. Even though the pictures and description were attractive, the reality was even better,. We loved the beautiful and comfortable furnishings and amenities. We loved the water views from virtually every window, the screened in porch which was ideal for morning tea or and afternoon libation. Although we lucked into a week of perfect weather, it was a little cool and we really enjoyed the fireplace which looked pretty but also gave us just enough heat. We don't have a single thing to complain or feel negative about and we are definitely going to try to visit again.
Since our primary reason for visiting was to relax, we didn't stray very far other than a round of golf in St. Felix which was a beautiful course. We also enjoyed the scallops supplied by Brian and Barb.

Beautiful area

  • 5 of 5
Seawatch cottage was a great home base for our day trips. The cottage was nicely decorated. The owners have obviously thought about their guests' comfort - there were plenty of towels, sunscreen, toys and games for any children, plenty of videos. The kitchen was well equipped, with quite decent cookware and cookware tools. If you have ever stayed at a vacation rental and were frustrated at the lack of kitchen equipment (such as a cork screw, can opener, paring knives, pot holders), rest assured you won't have that issue at Seawatch cottage. Our meals were simple, since we were on vacation, but I always had the tools I needed to make a meal. The cottage was clean and well maintained, nice ocean and pond views. Awesome sunsets. The managers, Irene and Gene were very helpful and friendly. We did not take advantage of the offer to buy fish from the caretakers, but that was only because we never knew what time we were arriving home from our day trips. If we had stayed at Seawatch during the summer, I think we would have asked the caretakers for fish daily. The beach is long and beautiful, kayaking (Malpeq Bay, put in at Mulligan) and bicycling not too far away. The outside play structure for the children is easily seen from inside the cottage, a plus for young families.The cottage is secluded, relaxing and private. One of the best cottages we've ever stayed at. We would love to return!

Great place to stay except for the insects

  • 4 of 5
My family of 5 recently stayed at Seawatch cottage and enjoyed our time in lovely PEI. The province is quaint, the people very nice, the scenery lovely and the red sandy beaches and sunsets simply breathtaking.

The cottage is nestled in a cul de sac with the ocean and beach on one side and a still pond on the other. The ocean provided a beautiful view of the sunset while the still water of the pond gave us a daily battle with swarms of aggressive Mosquitos that defied the owners' valiant effort of dual propane traps, deet repellents and afterbite ointment (all generously supplied). We learned to spray a path to our SUV or on the trail to the beach with OFF outdoor fogger in order to avoid the imminent attack. We never had a chance to use the play structure,the picnic table or the BBQ due to bugs, a shame as it would have been just perfect if we could.

I can't fault the owners, and I recognize it might have been just a bad year for this but other families with young kids or kids with hyper reactions like ours should consider our experience as I see no mention of this in the reviews.

What the bugs did though, was push us to spend either a lot of time indoors or away from the cottage altogether. We spent long hours enjoying the supplied satellite tv, DVDs, board games and books. When we were outdoors, we explored nearby sites like North Cape, Tignish deep sea fishing, Summerside and Cavendish...all within easy driving distance. We also discovered a nearby beach in Skinners Pond that was very secluded and best of all, bug free!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and positive comments on Seawatch Cottage. We are always happy to hear that the extra things we have supplied in the cottage are being used and enjoyed by our guests.
Seawatch Cottage is definitely situated on one of the most picturesque properties to be found and the beach is a perfect place to play in the red sand. It is also within easy driving distance to many of the other PEI attractions that holidaying families must see when on a one week vacation.
We are sorry for the discomfort your family experienced due to your sensitivity to mosquitoes. It is unfortunate that you vacationed in a week of high population. Due to the heavy rains this summer, the mosquitoes were worse than we have ever seen them before. Since my husband is also sensitive to mosquitoes, he has researched and found several other means of controlling the mosquito population. We hope these will win the battle with them if they return in such numbers again.
We are happy to hear that you still have some delightful memories of your 2013 holiday at Seawatch Cottage in PEI.

Seawatch Cottage is located at the end of a little travelled cul de sac. It is private and quiet. The beach is easily reached at the edge of the grassy yard and down a staircase. One can play on the beach, find sea glass, walk for miles and even in about 20 minutes to the small fishing village of Miminegash. Here you can watch the fishing boats come and go and buy fresh seafood from the fishermen when in season. Our caretakers are fishermen and sometimes will bring fresh lobster or scallops right to the door at a great price. They are also a great source of information and always ready to help if there is a need. It is an easy drive to the 3 small villages in the area, the Potato Museum, 2 lighthouses and their wonderful dinning facilities. The cottage has a good supply of brochures to aide you in finding things to see and do.
