The two additional bedrooms are cozy and spacious, each with ample closet space and access to a full equipped bathroom. The finished basement offers a place to relax and kick back, with a 60 inch flat screen, spacious sectional, and large windows drawing in natural light supporting the numerous pot lights embedded in the white washed pine ceiling.

Fantastic accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation on PEI! Our family of 6 stayed at this spacious house and it was so warm and inviting it felt like home! Dylan & Angie were very gracious hosts and we highly recommend this place for a great holiday! We would love to come back to this spotless and well-equipped home.

The house was beautiful and the views were great!

  • 5 of 5

It was very relaxing, and there were a lot of extras that were a real bonus as we were travelling with kids. The rooms full of toys and things for them to do made a world of difference to our vacation. The only real inconvenience we had was major roadworks going on nearby that delayed our trips in and out of Charlottetown. That however I'm sure is a temporary inconvenience and shouldn't be taken into long term consideration with renting the house.

Angie and Dylan were very friendly and we really did feel very comfortable in their house.

We would most definitely recommend!!

A dream of a vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 9 days at this dreamy house with our two young daughters, and it was an absolute delight! Angie and Dylan were incredibly friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The views from the house are gorgeous, and the interior is clean and comfortable with a modern design. Outdoors we rode bikes they provided, played on the huge lawn and swing set, spent time at the beach, and made a fire in the fire pit. The house is especially child-friendly, offering toys, books kitchen-ware and a booster seat, which made our vacation that much more enjoyable.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property and perfect location for seeing the island. We had a great stay, there was plenty of room for the children and if you have toddlers, there is an enormous amount of toys to entertain them. The living room is large and we had lots of room to move around, even with an infant on the floor half the time. Master bedroom is awesome, and always a nice breeze blowing through. There were a few things I felt could have helped. There were no blinds on the windows and the rooms were very bright, which is awesome in the daytime, but for going to bed, not ideal, especially if you have children. Other than that, it was just little things, no soap in the bathrooms on arrival, no pepper, really no basics to get you started, and no laundry hampers, which having small children with us, would have been nice, instead there was always dirty laundry on the floors. This being said, we had a great time and I'm sure if we had mentioned these things, Angela would have been right on it. We would definitely recommend this property, and I'm sure the little things will get worked out. If you visit PEI, Point Prim Chowder House is a must!!

The essence of PEI

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this home. Beautiful location with well maintained lawn and great water views. Easy drive to Charlottetown and close to grocery store. The home was clean, felt very safe - all the windows stayed open throughout our stay. The owner's were wonderful and made our stay perfect. I would definitely rent this house again.
