We live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada with our 2 teenagers. We have visited Troy's family in PEI every summer for the last 15 years, and decided it's about time to invest in a place of our own to stay.

Troy or Robin purchased this cottage in 2012

We LOVE Thunder Cove beach! It's our favourite beach and it was important to us to find a cottage on or near Thunder Cove. We feel so lucky to have found such a beautiful cottage. It is perfect for our family, and we hope your family loves it too!

We arrived at Endless Sands the day after school ended,completely worn out - we left a week later, refreshed, dazzled, and completely in love with this beautiful place! The accommodations were absolutely perfect, from an incredible location just down the road from gorgeous Thunder Cove Beach, to extremely comfortable furniture and beds, to inviting touches like homemade bread and preserves waiting for us on arrival! We couldn't have asked for more. The cottage fit out family of four with room to spare and we enjoyed our days on the beach, playing in the huge yard, reading on the front porch, riding bikes around the community, and visiting many attractions, all very close by. We can't recommend Endless Sands and Troy and Robin and their family enough - it was a perfect vacation and we will be repeat visitors for sure!

I had 2 adults & 2 children (5 & age 2). The cottage was perfect with 2 BR upstairs & 1 down. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked other than lobster crackers (I couldn't find) but I borrowed some from the nice neighbor. WE enjoyed the porch and the kids the yard & toys provided. There was a nice basket of homemade goodies when we arrived which added to the joy of entering the cottage. There were several spices which always help with the cooking. There wasn't a dishwasher so paper plates would be helpful (that's if you hate doing dishes-haha). The kitchen and den are open to each other with a nice large screen TV, DVD, & cable. There are shades & lovely window curtains to block light and when too warm, could leave windows open & breeze flowed nicely through the house. The décor was perfect & the place was "cute as a button". The beach was beautiful and one of our favorites on the north shore. With the age of my kids, we drove to the beach (2 min) & there is parking for cottages right at the dunes. The beach was never too crowded & the sunsets there are ridiculously beautiful reminding one to thank God for the beautiful earth he made us. There aren't many restaurants super close but Malpeque Oyster Bar rocks. I've eaten there 4 times & gotten "to go". It is only 7-10 min. All others are in Kensington 15-20 min or Cavendish 20 min drive. There is a great fish market for fresh fish, lobsters, etc. on the way to Cavendish. Our kids loved the Shining Waters park & I thought well worth the money. The owners were kind & gracious. We appreciate them sharing their home with us. I definitely recommend this cottage.

Perfect First Visit to PEI!

Endless Sands is a cozy, scenic cottage that is close to, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Thunder Cover is gorgeous with its red, rocky cliffs and coves. Troy and Robin were very friendly and answered every question we had prior to our stay. Troy's mother, Elaine, keeps the cottage quite clean and provided us with toiletries and goodies. We enjoyed the bicycle that was provided, the fire pit, and the beds!!! Oh my goodness, these are the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on!! The view from the 2nd floor balcony at night is breathtaking as well. We came to PEI to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary with my son and parents and it was wonderful! We could not have asked for a better place to stay. My only suggestions would be for a second bicycle and more storage space in the kitchen, but these are minor compared to how nice the cottage is. Thank you for making our first trip to PEI such a memorable one and for helping us celebrate our 15th anniversary!

Sincerely,

The Gressley Family

P.S. For those who are new to the island, here are some tips:

1. PEI is MUCH bigger than you think, so plan at least one day for each part of the island (and two days for the eastern portion--north and south). It will take you several hours to drive to each end of the island.
2. Go to Gahan Brewery in Charlottetown...SO GOOD!
3. Bring mosquito repellent so you can enjoy wonderful evenings by the fire pit (we did!).
4. Basin Head (singing sands) is a gorgeous beach with amazingly clear water!
5. If you go down to Thunder Cover early in the morning, you will see lots of fishing boats. :)
6. Cows Creamery t-shirts feature hilarious parodies of pop culture. We loved them!
7. U.S. Citizens: FYI, Canadian prices are quite a bit higher; however, you can find good store deals on some items. Also, some stores will flip the exchange rate and say U.S. currency is worth less. We just tried to avoid those places, or use of Canadian change at them. Don't be too discouraged though, there were plenty of businesses that just do an even exchange rate.

Be prepared for a wonderful, relaxing stay! You will love it here! :D
Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation! Thank you so much for the PEI tips ... they are so helpful. We have taken your suggestion and bought another adult and child bicycle for the cottage. Bicycling is a wonderful way to see the island! Thank you for your kind words ... we hope to see you again :)

A Relaxing Vacation!

We had such an enjoyable week in this house, we didn’t want to leave! Everything was exactly as it said in the description! The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had all the amenities that we would need for the week. We especially loved the welcome basket of goodies. Yummy!

There were so many wonderful touches around the house. Our three girls loved the games and books that were supplied and especially the toy chest. The sand toys and bocce ball set were well-utilized during our week here. We enjoyed the fire pit and the grill and being able to enjoy the quiet mornings on the deck.

One of the best perks of the house was the access to the semi-private beach. We spent time on that beach every day, taking walks, swimming, flying kites and having campfires. The walk to the beach was not long at all, the sand was soft and the water was warm!

We loved the location of the house. It was in a quiet area, but within easy travel of all of the “Anne of Green Gables” activities. It was the best of both worlds for our family. We fell in love with Prince Edward Island - the people, the landscape and the relaxed pace of the island.

At the end of the week, our 10-year-old burst into tears because she didn’t want to leave the house and we all felt the same way! We definitely want to come back to the island and we definitely want to come back to Endless Sands! Thanks, Troy and Robin (and the rest of the family!) for a wonderful week!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments! We love to hear our guests say that they felt comfortable at the cottage and enjoyed all the little extras. Our goal it to provide you with everything you need for a week at the beach so that you can create wonderful lasting memories with your loved ones. PEI is truly a magical place,and we are so glad your family loved it. Anytime you want to come back to the island, we would love to have you!

Our family had the best vacation here in Darnley PEI. The cottage was just perfect for our family of 5 - so beautiful and comfortable! We walked to the beach every day and rodes our bikes all over. We visited several beaches during our stay and the beach at Thunder Cove really is the best! The kids enjoyed the island and all the games, books & movies in the house. The dog loved lying on the deck all day and running in the yard. Neighbours were so friendly as well. We must highly recommend this cottage to anyone planning a vacation here.
Owner's Response: It is lovely to hear that your family of five had a wonderful time at Endless Sands, and that your dog had a relaxing vacation as well! We strive to make the cottage a home away from home for every member of your family. Thunder Cove beach is also our favourite ... we're glad you enjoyed it too! We would love to have you back again some day soon.
