Welcome to “Sea, Sand and Stars Cottage', where you will experience PEI's overwhelming wonders of ocean waves, a beautiful, clean soft red sandy beach, perfect quietness, and amazing starry night skies. All this surrounding a 'home away from home' that will provide you with everything that you could need for a perfect holiday.
The cottage is on a large grassy, spruce and larch bordered lot overlooking the cape, 500 ft. of beach and the Northumberland Strait. The beach is accessed by an easy, safe, short walk, on a gently sloped pathway through trees, shrubs and flowers. There are no difficult steps for seniors or children to climb. Plan to swim, surf the waves, relax under the umbrella or build sand castles in the sun. You can recline on lawn chairs on the deck or at the cape or play games on the large lawn while watching birds, the fishing boats, and ocean waves. The verandah provides a sunny place to curl up or eat a meal.
A LEISURE DAY AT THE COTTAGE
Walk the beach for miles either to the Miminegash Harbor (20 minutes) where fishing boats come and go carrying their seasonal catches which one can purchase, or walk the other direction from the property with a view of the windmills and the stunning, ever changing ocean waves and sunsets views.
Miminegash is a little fishing village with a great harbour, 2 convenience stores, a post office and a gas station.
To be sure this is a vacation home in which to rest and relax or travel to many interesting places near by.

Welcome to our 'Home Away from Home' Cottage in Prince Edward Island, Canada. In 2007 we visited the Maritime Provinces on a whim and absolutely fell in love with the ocean, the life style and the people. We almost bought a property immediately, but we decided to look around first. After looking at 75 properties in the Maritime Provinces we found this cottage and knew immediately that it was the place for us. Since purchasing it in August, 2008, we have been out (from Alberta) at least twice a year for extended periods and have rented it for a good portion of each summer. Our whole family spends some of their vacations at the cottage and all want to stay. Our family and friends describe it as being heavenly. From the guest book comments, we are sure that like us, you would go away from a vacation at this cottage refreshed and relaxed just like we do. Welcome to our 'Home'. Irene and Gene Huber
This cottage was the only property that was perfect for us. It has a wide, expansive, clean beach with shallow water for children to play, The water is the warmest north of the Cariolina's. The house was very clean and well maintained, well furnished with only special additions needed to make it our own. There is a large verandah in which we installed windows so that we now can use it in all weather and at any time of the day. This is a wonderful place to eat breakfast while watching the fishing boats and dinner watching the sunsets. The yard is large so our grandchildren (if they are not at the beach) can play safely.
