About Michele Coles

Grew up in Charlottetown, as a single Mom with 2 sons. Had this home built for us doing a lot of the manual labour myself, as a means to lower costs. During the summer it was being built I also worked at Avonlea Village, a tourist attraction, next door.

Michele Coles purchased this house in 2004

Why Michele Coles chose Green Gables

Within walking distance to Cavendish Beach, this year round home provides all the amenities of a tourist resort area without any of the hustle and bustle, as it is on a private road. Open fields behind the property present a wonderful place to walk as do the groomed paths of the Parks Canada Trails.

What makes this house unique

There is a lovely 2 person swing beneath an apple tree which is affords an excellent view of the setting sun, or a wonderful place to read a book. As well, there is a hammock in the shade in a quiet area of the yard under some trees. And one of our favorite things is to have a camp fire and sit in the swing.

Lovely Summer home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely summer home in early August, 2017. We were 4 adults and one 2 year old. The 2 year old was able to master the stairs quickly which was a plus as I'd worried about them. The property is large and beautifully gardened. We spent much of our time in one of its many seating areas and particularly appreciated the firepit. The kitchen was well stocked and included basics like salt, pepper,.etc plus unopened things that had been left by other guests which we appreciated. Also laundry supplies were included and appreciated. Avonlea Village is walking distance from this house and we went several times for snacks, treat and a lunch or 2. Cavendish beach was a short drive away and was lovely. We went to 2 lobster suppers: The New Glasgow Lobster Supper was fantastic. The Fisherman's Wharf supper was also good but a 4 star versus New Glasgow which was a 5. The Cavendish Beach Music Festival grounds are directly behind this property making it ideal if you are going!

Our hosts Michele and Doug were super to work with and went way above and beyond to get prescription drugs I'd forgotten back to us before our flight departed! Amazing.

We hope to get back to the Island for another visit here soon!

Amazing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Michele made every effort to make us feel at home and welcome. Every area of the yard and house has her unique touch to induce a smile. The property is well maintained and very clean. Michele was great to give recommendations for various things to do during our stay, good places to eat, beaches to go to etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again sometime. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Charming Little Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well equipped and the yard and gardens were beautiful! The owner was gracious enough to have the wood all split and in the fire pit just waiting for us. The decks were great to sit on and enjoy the afternoon sun or shade. We loved it and will be back again!

Lovely cottage on beautiful quiet lot near everything

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed here for a few days after leaving Charlottetown. We wanted a base to visit other areas of the island. This cottage was more than we expected. It has everything you need right down to a washer, dryer and even a dishwasher. A lot of love has been put into this cottage and the landscaping was beautiful. There were lots of games and books and plenty of information about the surrounding area. This cottage was decorated in a rustic theme; just what we wanted when booking a cottage. The place was so quiet and relaxing but so very near all the tourist's hot spots. Would love to be able to stay here again. Thanks Michele and Doug

Great Location - Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very close to all the action in Cavendish, which we found very convenient. Despite it being right near the thick of everything, there were plenty of trees around the property so we actually felt like we were far removed. Michele has not overlooked any small detail - the wraparound deck and landscaping made it truly magical. This is our 7th trip to PEI, but our first time at this home, and we would definitely recommend it to others.

Fantastic cottage with lots of space inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Located at Cavendish, this cottage has lots of lawn for the children to play and large deck areas with ample chairs and tables to relax. You can always find a shady place to sit.

The cottage is well supplied with everything you need to prepare and enjoy your meals, towels for the beach, a great BBQ and a fire pit for a night fire and smores.

We also took advantage of the park pass which was supplied.

We hosted a family gathering of 25 with ease one evening.

There were five in our party, and there was loads of room.

A real gem!
