The Greatest PEI Experience!

Spending endless hours searching for sea glass, shells and jellyfish on your own secluded beach, watching your children's eyes light up as they build that perfect sand castle, frolicking with the shadows of gentle waves and quiet evening breezes, and let us not forget the incredible sunsets sitting out on the deck or by the fire pit after the lobster dinner you just cooked...this is the Seashore Cottage.
We could not have been more pleased with our stay at the cottage. As a mother of two young boys, the amenities such as all the pots, towels, linens, and cleaning supplies (including the use of the washer and dryer and a dishwasher and detergent) made life tremendously easier. Truly, all we needed was a few days change of clothes and our toothbrushes.
I will have to admit when I first started to look at cottage rentals in PEI, I was torn between getting a cottage on its own beach or renting a cottage closer to the tourist areas like Cavendish but having to share the beach. After our stay at the the Seashore cottage, I spent a few days in the Cavendish and Charlottetown areas. After having done both, I can say that the seclusion is actually what you want. The beaches in the Cavendish area were absolutely littered with people. The tourist attractions were exactly that...tourist attractions, or more so tourist traps. The comfort of having your own beach and the convenience of being able to simply walk the length of a backyard to get back home outweighs any gains that a more centrally located cottage may offer.
The final word, I would definitely return to the Seashore Cottage on my next visit to PEI. It has helped us define what the PEI experience means.
