Absolutely lovely

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week at this lovely spot...close to everything we were hoping to see and do. It fit our needs, as we wanted to have a "kick back" holiday and to reconnect with children who were no longer living close to "home". Our granddaughter LOVED the playroom and we spent a fair bit of time there. The home was lovely, very clean and comfortable. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because of the number of mosquitoes who were out to get us! (nothing to do with the owners).

A beautiful place to stay in PEI with our family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Angie's place for a week in August with our three young children. We fell in love with the home as soon as we drove up the driveway. It has a lovely tranquil surrounding. There is lots of property for the kids to enjoy and it is backing onto a waterway with a private beach, perfect for exploring and collecting sea glass. The house had everything we needed for our stay. Our children were thrilled with the playroom downstairs, which was perfect when we needed some indoor time. It was so tastefully decorated, warm and cozy. Angie checked in with us during our stay to make sure we were comfortable. She was always available incase we needed additional information about the island. It was very difficult for us to leave at the end of our week there. We would definitely recommend this beautiful house if you are visiting the island!

The home is gorgeous and in a very central location, while maintaining that private beach house feel.

Even more beautiful in person!

  • 5 of 5

We had a five star trip to PEI thanks largely to Angie's warm welcome and this beautiful house. Our days were filled with trips to amazing places--many of them Angie's suggestions.

Perfect spot to spend a week in PEI

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. We had 2 parents, 2 grand parents and 2 boys (3 and 7) and everyone was happy. Kids loved the basement and the parents loved having time on the back patio to relax and feel the breeze coming off the water. Everything was clean and well maintained.

From a practical stand point it is a very short drive to Charlottetown so we were able to enjoy lots of restaurants and touristy things. Highly recommend it!

Fabulous vacation and stunning accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our PEI experience and having such lovely accommodations made our trip all the more satisfying.

The process of booking our stay was quick and easy and communication with the owner was above and beyond what I would have expected. We truly appreciated the thoughtful gestures and suggestions for dining, entertainment, and sight seeing.

We arrived to a spotlessly clean home that provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The neighbourhood was lovely and welcoming, with easy access to amenities. It is the perfect year to visit with access to National and Provincial parks being free and we definitely made the most of it.

We would highly recommend this home to anyone considering a similar vacation and would love to visit PEI again in the near future.
