Delightful, relaxing, quiet vacation!
A charming two bedroom cottage with an incredible view of the ocean. Very private and peaceful. Lovely private rocky/sandy beach. The stairs down to the beach are not for the faint of heart, but it's well worth the climb down and up every day to collect sea glass and shells and just sit by the ocean and bask in the sun. There are also two chairs by the top of the stairs from which to watch the cruise ships and ferry boats go by and they are great for sitting in and reading a good book. Everything in the cottage was charming and clean and well thought out. There's a full refrigerator and stove/oven, microwave and coffee maker. And Iris brought us a dozen fresh eggs! It was great to be able to relax in the morning and fix a little breakfast before starting the day. Everything on the island (except for the far western section) is an easy drive from the cottage. We made several trips to Charlottetown, Rustico/Cavendish beaches, the singing sands and many lighthouses. Most trips were less than half a day drive there and back. The best place for fish and chips on the island is just 10 minutes away - Brehaut's. When we weren't out playing tourist, we spent time in the lovely dining room/living room looking out at the ocean, playing cards, watching some movies on our DVD player. There is no TV in the cottage, but we found that made the stay even more relaxing. No TV, no news or outside world to intrude. We brought our DVD player and some movies we hadn't yet had a chance to watch. There's also a small grocery store on the way to Brehaut's that rents movies. We came in September and there were a couple of cold nights, but the heating in the cottage works great. During the warm days, we just opened up the windows in the dining and living rooms and there was a lovely cross breeze. We loved our vacation and returned home relaxed and refreshed. We are already planning a return in the spring/summer so we can see everything in bloom!
