The house comfortably fits 6 people and can easily sleep 8 with the extra bed. Each bedroom contains its own bathroom and shower, and with the master bedroom there is also a big soaker tub. If it's raining and you want to cozy up inside with a good book, the living room contains 3 couches and the sitting room has a love seat. A big screen TV is there for your enjoyment, too. A spacious kitchen with all the amenities will let a family cook together . And, for your lobster, fish, or steaks and burgers (ask me about our local butcher) there is a barbecue and a big deck with the water view for an evening of good food and connection. The grounds are spacious and secluded. An area for crackling bonfires and star gazing is already set with chairs and waiting. Spend afternoons exploring the Points East Drive which will take you to golf courses, a swimming pool, the Rossignal Winery, other villages such as Murray Harbour, and unique restaurants. The stunning Panmure Island beach and lighthouse are less than a 5 minute drive away. (or you can venture to the beach on our provided bicycles) Aim for a sunset dinner at the Sandspit restaurant right at Panmure. The town of Montague where you can shop for your food, fill your car, eat at restaurants, or go for ice cream is only a short drive from the house. And, the capital of Prince Edward Island, historic Charlottetown is only a 50 minute drive. Or... you can just stay "home" and take the canoe out for a nice, relaxing paddle.
My name is Billy Cann, but I guess you know that! I grew up in this area called Gaspereaux and am proud of my family's heritage here. The house you will stay in was built by my own hands. I enjoy carpentry, fishing, the outdoors and meeting people like you. Because of my Irish heritage I love to chat and learn about others' stories. But, I won't keep you too long- just long enough to let you know where to dig your clams, buy your lobster, and have a relaxing beach time.
This property consist of 15 acres of beautiful streams, wooded areas, duck pond and lots of birds to view. A great place to relax with all the privacy you will ever want during your summer vacation. Quiet nights to spend around a bonfire or to relax on the deck and watch the lights of St. Marys Bay under the stars.
Our family (three adults and three kids) stayed here for two weeks. This property went beyond our expectations. We look for a quiet and peaceful getaway and this was it. The property is very quiet and extremely private. The house itself is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which is very convenient. Plenty of towels, sheets and blankets were provided and the laundry facilities work great for a family on the go. The BBQ is great quality and we cooked most of our meals on it, including lobster and mussels. We really appreciated plenty of outdoor seating and two different decks to choose from. The house gets a fantastic breeze off the water and has lots of windows to open - we never once felt too warm inside even though it was August.
The view to the water never gets old, and we enjoyed afternoons on the deck and evening fires overlooking the water. We also took the canoe on the property around the bay a couple of times. And dug for quahogs during low tide. The gardens surrounding the property are beautiful and attracts a lot of hummingbirds, we also saw several rabbits and one morning a fox was snoozing on the back lawn.
The property is a quick 15 minute drive to Montague for groceries and restaurants, as well as other attractions like golf, boat tours and local artisans. Five minutes in the other direction to beautiful Panmure Island Beach, and the road was quiet enough my husband and I jogged most mornings to the provincial park and back. The beach also features a small cafe which we got ice cream from a couple of evenings and walked the beach.
We also took in some theatre productions in nearby Georgetown and ate at Fireworks in Bay Fortune that is 40 minutes away (well worth the long waiting list).
The owner was very helpful while planning our trip and while we were there as well.
We've stayed at other areas around the island in the past but have agreed that this part of the island was the best location for the quiet, scenery, beaches and convenience to amenities.
We were looking for reasonably priced accommodation for our family of six adults, one child and a couple of dogs. This home is lovely, bright, spacious and newly finished. The three bedrooms each with its own ensuite was perfect for us. It is a large private property on a very quiet lot. My sons in law enjoyed collecting clams at the beach on the edge of the property. There is a beautiful ocean/sand beach a short drive away which is not overly populated and is dog friendly. A great stretch for a long walk. Montague is not far away to stock up on supplies and it is easy to plan day visits to other parts of the Island. If you are looking for a quiet scenic destination for a family or group of friends this is perfect. Billy is very nice to deal with and very responsive to your needs.
It's worth noting that all of the reviews on this site are from 2013 or earlier. While this is a nice house in a good location, there are some things that a renter should know in advance. For one, although it is on water, the walk to the beach is quite rugged and not suitable for anyone with mobility issues or small children. Most importantly, the house is in need of some TLC. The furniture is well worn, to the point of being unusable in some cases. The photos show the furniture in new condition; but it is well past that point now after 5+ years and many renters. The first night we were there, one of the boards on the deck broke. The owner fixed it promptly, however the screen for the sliding patio door was missing for the duration of our stay, despite assurances it was being repaired and would be replaced shortly. We enjoyed the area, which is a bit off the beaten path for PEI tourism, but the poor condition of the house prevented us from spending much time just relaxing and enjoying the views around the property. Oh, and the beds are terrible, as is the bedding which should have been replaced some time ago. The head board in at least one of the rooms is not attached to the bedframe and rattles when you roll over in the night. The owner needs to invest in some up-keep!
Very nice place to stay. Our whole family just spent a whole week in this beautiful house. The owner is very nice people. They almost provide everything for you to use in this one week living. We have 8 adults with one baby. We still feel a lot of room.
The beach in the front is very clean and shallow, very good for kinds to play the water and sand.
There are a lot of clams can dig in the beach.
Our whole family very enjoy this vacation time.
very thank the owner to provide that much service to us!
My family and I spent a wonderful week in this beautiful and spacious home! As the description says, the house sits at the end of a secluded long, red dirt driveway, and overlooks St. Mary's Bay. The view from the sitting room or the back porch is beautiful, and while I usually itch to go exploring on while on vacation, this time I was quite happy to just sit and look at the water while everyone else was still getting ready :)
The property is located in a less touristy area of the island, which is nice, because the roads are less busy and it's more peaceful. That said, the beautiful Panmure Island Beach is just a short drive away, and probably could be easily reached by bicycle as well. (Four bicycles are available at the property). There are also several other great beaches in the eastern part of the island, but even Green Gables in Cavendish is not really that far of a drive.
Definitely worth visiting!
We are from the States and had a big family reunion with all of our relatives in PEI. The house was spacious enough for us, and we loved Panmure Island beach. We really had a great time here in this home!
