We invite you to enjoy our summer cottage – located in Canoe Cove, Prince Edward Island, about half way between the Confederation Bridge and Charlottetown.

The cottage is just a two minute walk from an endless expanse of warm red sand.

The cottage features an open-plan great-room with new laminate flooring, lots of windows, gourmet cottage kitchen and French doors opening to the spacious deck... all overlooking beautiful Canoe Cove. A propane fireplace is enjoyed in the cozy sitting area, dining area or the kitchen. This wonderful vacation cottage is situated in one of the most desirable cottage subdivisions on PEI's South Shore. This well-maintained cottage is the perfect south-shore getaway!

Glenshore Cottage makes an an excellent base for island excursions. You are only 15 minutes from picturesque Victoria by the Sea; 20 minutes will have you exploring historic Charlottetown; and in 30 minutes, you can explore all the Cavendish attractions including the home of Anne of Green Gables.

About Helen Edley

Chris and Helen Edley live in Victoria BC, on Canada's west coast. Chris has spent many years living on the east coast and they love the beautiful south coast of PEI. They own a graphic design company, which, in addition to designing and producing interpretive signs for parks, also supports the international geocaching community with products and services through landsharkz.ca. 'We hope that all our guests have a wonderful and memorable holiday and enjoy exploring PEI as much as we do'.

Helen Edley purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Helen Edley chose Victoria

After some memorable and relaxing family vacations in this area Chris and Helen decided they needed a vacation home to use themselves and to share with others in one of their favorite holiday destinations. With one son in the air force, they felt that the cottage would be somewhere he could visit and relax and get some 'home away from home' during his long postings away from family.

What makes this cottage unique

We like to start off with a Cows Ice Cream! You can get them on the ferry, in Borden when you cross the bridge or in Charlottetown on the pier! We have personal flavor favorites but we won't sway you - try them all! It's wonderful to spend the morning geocaching and/or exploring the island, then come back to the cottage for a late lunch before packing your towel for a relaxing afternoon on the warm sandy beach. The cottage is so close, you can slip back for a afternoon snack or a fresh towel... The 800 sq' deck overlooks the beach and is a magical place to dine, relax or just sleep! With almost half an acre at your disposal, you can set up a net and play some badminton or just enjoy the privacy of the property.

An East Coast Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The Maritimes are the perfect place to unwind, disconnect and get away from the day-to-day doldrums of big city life on the mainland. I used to visit every year as a kid, but never truly appreciated the experience until this summer, and this cottage is the perfect place to do that.

We arrived late in the afternoon, unpacked the groceries we’d purchased in town, and headed straight for the beach. There are miles of beach to walk and explore in both directions. Our only issue would be with the most direct path to the beach. We found it to be a little treacherous, as it was quite rocky. A quick walk through the field behind the cottage, and we found a path to the beach which was much easier to navigate.

The cottage is well-maintained, clean, tidy and cozy. The ability to do laundry was well-appreciated, as this allowed us more time to get out and explore this island paradise. The location of the cottage allows for easy trips into Cornwall, Charlottetown or virtually anywhere on the island.

We look forward to staying again, possibly bringing more family members who couldn’t make the trip this time out. Our experience with the owners was everything we'd hoped for and then some. I would gladly recommend this rental to any friends or family looking to visit Prince Edward Island.

South Shore Heaven

  • 5 of 5
This little piece of heaven on Prince Edward Island's south shore was the perfect place to spend our vacation. From the moment we drove up and unlocked the door we realized it was even better than it's pictures, we were in love!
The views are spectacular from the inside and outside, even with a few cottages in front of it. Each cottage is spaced so far apart that it feels very private. We were actually amazed that it was so quiet.
We loved watching the tide go out in the bay, from the huge deck and listening to the waves crash the shore as the tide came in. When the tide was out we were able to explore for miles. So although there is not an actual beach here, there is sand that goes on forever and many shallow pools of water, while the tide is out.
The cottage is so clean and well taken care of. It has everything you can think of that you might need. I loved having a washer & dryer on site. As we were there in early September we had a couple cool evenings, it was nice to be able to turn on the fireplace to take the chill out of the cottage.
The close proximity to several golf courses was excellent. I would suggest Countryview Golf Course as the best in the area. If you are wanting ocean views while you tee off then Glen Afton Golf Course is the one! Both courses are extremely affordable.
We would recomend Maggies in North River or Brit's Fish & Chips if you are looking for excellent fish & chips. The best donairs on the island can be had at Pizza Delight- located just in Cornwall. We tried donair egg rolls from Dino's Pizza on University Ave in Charlottetown- excellent!
Booking the cottage was so simple, we did everything through email. The owners provided answers to all my questions.
We loved the Glenshore Cottage and have already recommended it to our family & friends!
Thanks for the memories, looking forward to another visit soon!

Fantastic Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was fantastic! The cottage is equipped and set up very well for visiting families. It is a very bright, clean, quiet, and spacious cottage. The beach outside is great for strolling along - especially at low tide. We found the location to be very central for all of our day trips across the island. We're really looking forward to visiting again!! Very highly recommended.

Summer vacation on PEI

  • 5 of 5
We had a great vacation at Glenshore Cottage! We especially enjoyed walking on the red sand beach, just a short walk from the cottage is a beach access point. When the tide goes out, my 3 kids really enjoy searching for crabs and starfish, collecting many creatures and then releasing them. The cottage was very clean on arrival and looked like the interior has all been refinished recently, modern appliances, kitchen essentials, comfortable bedding, a cabinet stocked with games for all ages. Lots of family bonding time! Large deck for sitting, a patio set for meals, and a fire pit (although many mosquitos at dusk). Short drive to Charlottetown and since it was our first trip to PEI we spent several days sightseeing around the island. We went to Charlottetown with our laptop to access the internet, they have a Starbucks and several restaurants with internet access if needed. Owners were great to work with and very helpful! Our family stayed together in the cottage because my kids are younger, if they were older I know they would really enjoy the extra bunky room for more space to themselves, or if we were traveling with another couple. We hope to make the trip to PEI again someday, we live in New England and although the outdoor temps were not high, we found the ocean water so much warmer at Canoe Cove then our local beaches here at home, plus much less crowded! There were times when we had the beach to ourselves! We would recommend this cottage to relatives or friends who were looking to experience PEI.

Outstanding Cottage in a Superb Location

  • 5 of 5
I had the pleasure of staying in this cottage in early October and when I drove up I was excited and once inside I was thrilled. This was far, far better than I had expected. The location is ideal, close to the beach, and sitting on the deck in the evening gave us beautiful sunsets to enjoy. The short drive into Charlottetown is very picturesque and we made sure we enjoyed PEI"s "Cows" ice cream everyday because once we had tried it we simply could not drive past!
Even though it was October the cottage was cozy and comfortable and the gas fireplace made for happy lounging around. We didn't use the 'bunkie" as I was traveling with a friend but we did poke our heads in and both of us thought it would be ideal for kids who often like to have their own space - which would then give Mom or dad their own space too. All in all we were delighted and I plan to book another trip for 2011 as the fall colours are simply amazing. Whatever you do don't forget your camera - PEI is a beautiful province.
