Why Nancy Willis chose Eglington
We also live in the area, which is one of the most interesting and Special in all of Prince Edward Island. Fortune has been an artists' community since the 1800s, and remains one of the most sought out, non-commercialized vacation locales. We arrived here in the 1970s from the United States to build a United Nations project called the Ark at Spry Point. We loved it and never left.
What makes this Bungalow unique
This property is so special because of its serenity and privacy. A deep and singular sense of tranquility. Although it is only a few hundred yards from Rt 310, the house is unable to be seen by any other property either from land or water, and no others are visible from the house itself. The inside of the house is comfortably and attractively furnished in an informal fashion. From every window the water is visible along with the birds which represent a huge range of species. It is located on Eglington Cove and can be google mapped at (Eglington Cove Lot 43 PEI, Canada). The 17 foot family sized canoe makes the secluded and protected Fortune Back Beach an ideal location for sunbathing, exploring, picnicking and swimming.

Peaceful, private waterfront home
We loved the location of this house! Beautiful views of the cove and ocean beyond. Canoe and kayak were available to use. We enjoyed exploring the water in the canoe. House is set back nicely from the road through trees. Very peaceful. But mosquitoes were everywhere. Getting in or out of the car was difficult trying to avoid mosquito bites. Beautiful deck out back but couldn't use it because of the mosquitoes and the high heat and humidity during our stay. The inside of the house was very comfortable. There was a great rec space in the basement. We played ping pong, foosball and darts. Wonderful family fun!! Dishwasher and washer/dryer were nice amenities to have. No air conditioning which would have been nice with the heat and humidity but we appreciated that the owner provided fans in every room.
We had fun exploring several beaches within 30 minutes of the house.
We had a great stay at this home!
We are pleased these folks enjoyed the house. However, re: the mosquitoes, they were every where this summer because of the incredibly wet June . This was not specific to this property.

Great stay at Nancy’s rental. The kids loves it and it’s proximity to five beaches is worth everything.
Nancy checked in a few times to see that we were doing ok and then otherwise left us alone.
The house was family comfy. Kitchen well stocked to cook and clean. Tons of water hot and cold. Lots and lots of towels. Both bath and beach. Beds were comfy with lots of extra bedding and pillows. Deck backyard and view were great.
Wasn’t crazy about the damp basement but the kids loved it down there. Go figure.
All in all it’s a great place to rent if your a beach family and you love points east in PEI.
Would def recommend.
Spectacular Family Vacation
Our 9 days at Nancy’s home on Fortune Bay was amazing! The home is nestled in a peaceful setting, and they had done a marvelous job at stocking it with all the essentials one would need while staying there. We spent our days kayaking, playing board games, reading, and exploring the local areas of Souris and the Basin Head beach. We had some great games of ping pong in the basement game room and were blessed to use the BBQ grill on the deck. Beach combing at low tide was also a favorite for us all. I would and will recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a quite secluded get away as a couple or family.

Cheers and hi to everyone
Gorgeous spot, very private even though in the village
If you need to go away from stress and feel like you are a million miles away from everything and everyone , here is the spot for you ! Even though close to everything , it seems like you are in a far away getaway .
Most of my friends and relatives already heard from us about this great vacation home. And some of them are already looking to book it for next year!
Thanks so much for the great review. We loved having you and hope to see you soon again.
great, relaxing and charming
nothing fancy in this place just what you are looking for : calm and beautiful sunset / sunrise
the kids loved the swings and the canoe/kayak
we enjoyed the calm
our stay in PEI couldn't have been better
Nancy was very helpful and accommodating... I can only recommend this place for others
Very private and beautiful
It was a perfect location. There was lots for the kids to do with the games room and swings outside. The kayak and canoe were a wonderful addition, and the view was spectactular. Basin Head was a family favourite and is only 15 mins away. We spent 2 full days there and it was nice to be so close. We loved it and would come back again in a second. Nancy made us feel very much at home!
