The parting comments of friends and guests that have stayed here are universally ones of happiness and sadness.

About Ron Robinson

Welcome to my summerhome! I built the main house in 2004 and added the 'south wing' (breezeway, garage and guest quarters) in 2006. Although I call it my summerhome it is built for year round use.

I have enjoyed portions of every spring, summer and fall at my summerhome every year since 2004. I hope you will too!

Ron Robinson purchased this cottage in 2004

We love your house - can we move in tomorrow?! :-)

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Ron's house on PEI from May 15 to 19, 2014. It is everything as described and then some. It is a perfect location - close enough to the action but still so private and so quiet. Beautiful, calm views of the bay and the ocean. We could have watched the herons, eagles, and hawks hunting and fishing on the bay all day. This huge beautiful house is exactly to our taste and has every amenity you could possibly need while on vacation. We loved loved loved this house and would move in for good tomorrow! Thank you Ron. You are a very gracious and accommodating VRBO host.

Owner's Response: A followup correspondence...


Hello Ron,

We all had a wonderful time in PEI! The wedding went well and your home worked out great for our family. It was very beautiful and spacious with lots of room to spread out. The view was spectacular and I was able to capture some great sunrise pictures from the upper deck. The location was also central to our needs and having the park passes was helpful. One comment would be to possibly add another kayak or maybe a canoe, so that several people can enjoy going out on the water together. We all have great memories and are very happy with the decision to rent your home. And, by the way, thank you for letting us rent form Tuesday to Tuesday this worked out perfect for us with a Saturday wedding and Tuesday flights for some.

I would highly recommend your home to others.

Regards,

Bernita

Hi Ron,

Thanks again for the wonderful time we had while staying at your place in PEI. Your home was beautiful and spacious and offered our family the perfect combination of space to be together as well as places for some time alone. We really liked the location and found it very handy to all of the sites and attractions we wanted to go to. Thank you also for the tourist information and park passes that you had left for us, as well as the crib and bassinet. It was all very much appreciated!

Here is some feedback that I had collected from the group:
• House was very well stocked - plenty of utensils, beach towels, patio seating, etc.
• Great dinner table for a large group
• Loved the breezeway in the evenings for fresh air, free of bugs
• Could use a few more face cloths and bath towels when house is at capacity
• Perhaps add mention (in the house manual)of how to lock the patios doors, none in our party were familiar with this type of handle lock
• Though beautiful the pictures did not do the house justice, maybe a floor plan and/or virtual tour as well to show off the house even better
• Second fridge came in handy
• Would recommend to anyone!

Our overall impression was that the accommodation was incredible and we had an amazing vacation!!

Thanks again,
Alison

Many thanks again for providing us with an experience we shall not forget.

  • 5 of 5
First of all, we all felt privileged to enjoy our holiday in your lovely summer home. The five women spent a good deal of time wondering who decorated it, and we came away with the combination of Linda Reeves, Sarah Richardson and Martha Stewart.

The paint colours reflected the serenity of the many beach-related photos about the house; all of these coordinated so beautifully with the bedspreads, couches, and chairs. This was further enhanced by the wonderful white crown moldings, chair rail and wainscoting, as well as the wide moldings of the many bookcases. These were generously filled with books of all types --from golf to horses to top picks of 'Heather" from Chapters.

Our one regret was that we did not have time to do them justice, as our Calgary son arrived with an array of board games that took precedence over reading. Each evening ended with fun-filled competitions of Sequence, Spot It, etc. That lovely large kitchen table was perfect for our nightly battles.

You've asked for comments as to any improvements we might suggest.....my first one would be that the addition of a large-size griddle for pancakes would be most welcomed. And our other comment has to do with handling of the garbage.

If possible, garbage removal for compost materials should be weekly not bi-weekly. The paper, cans, plastic can easily last 2 weeks, but the compost got 'ripe' quickly, which leads to our suggestion to somehow dispose of it at least once a week.

We have yet to determine what form next year's vacation will take...Everyone was sorry to leave, having enjoyed the luxury of your home AND a week of perfect weather. We certainly will be considering a return to The Island.

If we can be of any further use to you in your desire to create a high-quality experience for your guests, do not hesitate to contact Ray or me.

Many thanks again for providing us with an experience we shall not forget.

Note: Owner now arranged for pickup of waste/recycle/compost on a weekyl basis.

Your Summer Home - Beautiful, Large, Great Location

Your home is beautiful and we really enjoyed our 5 days here. There is a lot of room for everyone to spread out, but we can all have fun at meal times and in the evenings. It's near the beaches but a\way from the crowds. Thank you so much for making this lovely property available to us. K.Eagles

Local Things to do:

Walks

A walk around MacMillan Point…just go down the stairs on the bayside deck and turn left…the hardier souls will go all the way around!! 30 minute walk.

A walk on Brackley Beach. Enter park on the Dunes Gallery side and pass the Brackley Beach Parking lot (for tourists!!!) and go about ½ mile until you see stairs over the sand dunes. Park here. Go over the stairs and turn right. Its 3 miles round trip to walk to the bridge which you see from the deck of the summerhouse. Normally you encounter 3-4 people on the walk. Solitude!!!

The Trail at Greenwich Dunes near St. Peters Bay (about 30 minutes). A great trail that takes about 45 minutes out to a beautiful beach on the ocean. A great place to pack a lunch and spend the afternoon on a warm sunny beach. The trails takes you some very picturesque wetlands. Bring your camera! Combine later with dinner at the Inn at St. Peters.

Deep Sea Fishing

Richards Deep Sea Fishing is a great way to get on the ocean and do a little fishing on a sunny afternoon or evening. They begin at the end of the local lobster season (end of June) and run through the summer and early fall. All fishing tackle is provided and you are encouraged to bring your own food and beverages (alcohol is allowed) as none are provided. It’s one of the best places to enjoy the ocean and the sunsets are amazing. I always go at least once a summer and always in the evening…reservations are required.

Local Galleries (within 10 minutes):

General things to do:

If you have the opportunity to see “Anne of Green Gables”, the theatre production, please do. It is a long running professional theatre production. Book tickets well ahead of your arrival on PEI.

Shopping:

Grocery shopping in Charlottetown: I recommend the new Sobeys on Buchanan Drive in North Charlottetown:

Dining:

All restaurants are basically casual dress…shorts can be worn in all if you feel like it.

Nearby (within 10 minutes)

The Lobster Claw: cheap and cheerful…its where the locals eat.

Richards: just across the bay…not fancy…great for lunch or quick supper on a sunny warm day…great seafood…portions are huge (recommend splitting a single order for 2 people). Also sell all types of uncooked seafood for takeaway.

The Dunes: incredible restaurant/gallery/gardens…moderately priced…reservation required…worth seeing even if you don’t eat there.

The Shaw Hotel: great place for dinner…more expensive…Sunday buffet is excellent.

Nearby (within 20 minutes…not in Charlottetown).

The Pearl: excellent food…more expensive…reservation required.

Delvay by the Sea: recently changed hands so quality is unknown…nice dining room…more expensive.

Glasgow Hills Golf Course: inexpensive…great view of the ocean on a sunny warm day.

In Charlottetown (15 minutes):

Lot 30: One of the best restaurants on PEI…more expensive…need reservation.

Simms Corner: Great steakhouse and oysters…try the Lucky Limes oysters (incredible)…reservation required.

Merchant Man Pub: excellent medium priced pub fare food.

Outside of Charlottetown (30 minutes):

Inn at St. Peters: more expensive, lovely dining room, excellent food, beautiful view over the bay…reservation required.

Golfing:

It is a major golf destination in Canada. The golf is truly amazing.

I recommend Glasgow Hills Golf Club (I am a member there, best golf club on PEI in terms of value and friendliness)! I also recommend The Links at Crow Bush, Dundarave and Brundenell River (found at the same site), Anne of Green Gables, and Eagles Glenn.
