About Toby Schwartz
Family of 4 from Nova Scotia, with deep PEI roots. We've been coming to PEI since birth, have relatives on the island, and love all that it has to offer. It is a magical, relaxing place, which the whole family enjoys.
Toby Schwartz purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Toby Schwartz chose Darnley
We fell in love with the Darnley Farmhouse many years ago while staying in the area, so when it came up for sale, we knew it had to be ours! It is a great PEI find, with complete privacy, yet in an ideal location to experience everything the island has to offer, including its incredible beaches. We hope you will love this property as much as we do. It is truly an island gem.
What makes this Cottage unique
Privacy, stylish and high-end interiors, amazing location, water views from almost every room in the house, and access to the water for canoeing/kayaking. Gas fireplace and pull-out sectional sofa available as well.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
We stayed at the Darnley Farmhouse for a week in July and it was nothing short of amazing. The house was perfect for our family, and immediately felt like home to us for the 7 days. It was cozy, clean and had everything that we required for our stay. The covered deck was the perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee, and the spacious yard provided endless entertainment for my two small children.
Toby was very quick to answer any questions I had and was very accommodating! I miss the farmhouse already!
Great farmhouse for family vacation
Nicely renovated farmhouse in great property with water views. Well equipped kitchen, perfect for cooking fresh seafood from nearby seafood supply store. Great deck and front yard with lots of kids toys and games (we visited with kids age 5 and 7). Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
We Can't Wait to Return
I’ve stayed with my family in nearly a dozen vacation rentals over the years, and the Darnley Farmhouse is easily our favourite. How could you not enjoy being greeted by yellow warblers and terns as you enter the lane, and basking in the gorgeous sunsets along the Darnley River at night? My kids loved playing tag and capture the flag in the spacious yard, and my wife and I loved being within ten minutes of world class beaches and cycling routes.
The home itself also surpassed all of our expectations. Rustic but modern, it perfectly blends convenience with downhome charm. We especially liked the large kitchen and the deck, both of which were perfect for our family meals. We can’t wait to return again next summer!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us! Thanks so much for your wonderful review, and we hope to host you and your family again in the future!
