Beach House at Thunder Cove, 50 feet from PEI's Best Beach

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,800 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus warm outdoor shower

Avoid the tourist crowds. Gorgeous Beach House at Thunder Cove sits about 100 feet from one of the most beautiful beaches on PEI. Large open Living/Dining/Kitchen area on second floor with pine-covered cathedral ceiling offers unforgettable views over the dunes and gulf. Master bedroom with en-suite on second floor also. Three more large bedrooms (5 more beds), family room, large 4 piece bath/laundry room all on ground floor. Upper front deck plus lower decks front and back with outside warm water shower. Walk out the front door, across a grassy lane and over a dune to a very wide 2 km long sandy beach that is usually very quiet on week days. Warning, do not be fooled: I see that other cottages for rent show you a photo of OUR beach, even when they are actually 1 or 2 miles away, or even farther. Note that they do not show an actual view from their deck. But our cottage actually faces this awesome beach. Rent the real thing. Rent our Beach House or Cedar Shanty. We guarantee satisfaction.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

A three generation vacation that was absolutely perfect! The only thing we would have wanted was a baby gate for the stairs, because of an 11 month old. We would love to come back! beautiful!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive review. The cottage includes the use of a baby travel crib/playpen but we have not been able to find a baby gate that will reliably work with the design of these stairs.

beautiful memories

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this beautiful Beach house in August/11. I have to admit , I was nervous as you never know when the owner took the pictures. When we arrived the house was excactly what was shown in the pictures, no surprises! The beach was just outside our door. We would definitely recommend this house our friends!

Our Beach House overlooks Thunder Cove, a beautiful soft sand beach in Lower Darnley on the central north shore of Prince Edward Island on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. The beach has both huge sand dunes and red rocky cliffs with caves. MacKay's pond is a couple of hundred feet away.
