The Captain's Rest is a beautiful well maintained 1100 sqft single story 3 bedroom cottage in Darnely, Prince Edward Island. Inspected and licenced by Tourism PEI
Enjoy breath taking sunsets and a fantastic ocean view from the wrap around covered deck. All bedrooms have queen size beds. Open the master bedroom's patio door and be caressed by a gentle ocean breeze. The fully equipped cottage is located on a large lot with no side or front neighbours. Just 300 feet from the shores of the Darnley Basin, and a mere 2 minutes to the most beautiful sandy beach on Prince Edward Island (Thunder Cove). Darnley Greens Golf course is 2 minutes away, and just 30 minutes to Charlottetown, 20 minutes to Summerside, 15 minutes to Cavendish, and 10 minutes to Kensington. The cottage has high definition tv with full satellite dish programming, dvd, patio chairs, fire pit, washer and dryer, BBQ, outdoor lobster cooker, bedding, towels, and cutlery. The cottage also has a water softener and a UV light for water safety. Sit on the covered deck and watch the fishing boats in Darnley Basin harvest fresh PEI mussels. Peaceful relaxing environment await you.
Come stay on the island and enjoy fresh Atlantic lobster, clams, quahogs, oysters, and many more Maritime delicacies. There are so many things to do from swimming, golf, scenic drives, festivals, deep sea fishing, and live theater, but most visitors simply love the peaceful relaxing atmosphere of Prince Edward Island.
We are often booked a year in advance so please book your stay early.

Pete purchased this cottage in 2015
We bought this property because we have been spending time in Darnley almost every year for 10 years. It had always been our dream to one day own our own little piece of tranquility. The Darnley and Thunder Cove area is close to amenities and tourist attractions without being surrounded by tourists. A nice quiet location with a great view to enjoy some much needed alone time or even family time.
We just returned from a week in mid September at the Captain's Rest. The home itself was awesome. The kitchen had everything we needed, even a food processor! During a couple of rainy afternoons we took advantage of the video library. Several times we had a fire in the fire ring in the yard. The yard was big enough and the area remote enough that our dogs were able to roam around. We were able to find a place a block away where we could launch our kayaks for a nice kayak around Darnley basin. Kennsington and Summerside were close enough to go for groceries, etc. The cottage was centrally located enough that one day we drove to the far western tip and another day we drove to the far eastern tip. The roads are not bicycle friendly so we drove our bikes to the Confederation Train in Kennsington and rode from there. Thanks for thinking of everything - even newspaper, an ax and wood for the fire!
This cottage has everything you need to relax. Close to the beach, clean, all amenities. Great.
view-excellent inlet bay, sunsets, breeze, neighbors
Cottage- excellent, fully stocked, comfortable, clean and washer dryer.
Beach- 2 minute drive and definitely amazing.
We stayed at Captain's Rest for our Honeymoon and it was the perfect spot. Beautiful location, the cabin has all the amenities you could possibly want including internet, cable, fire pit, laundry, large kitchen and living room etc. The beach was a two minute drive down the road, location is just outside town so you were close to just about everything you could need/want. Also close to all kinds of little places to visit and see and not far from Cavendish, Charlottetown and Summerside. Particularly enjoyed the Haunted Mansion in Kensington. The area was quiet and the view is spectacular and had a nice big yard. Property manager was excellent the only time we needed to contact him was when we used up all the gas in the bbq tank and next morning there was a fresh tank and a bottle of wine on the step :) Property is well maintained and was clean upon arrival. Thouroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone looking to get away and enjoy the Island! We had a great time and didnt' want to come back home would love to go back again next Summer!
We stayed at this cottage for the second time, and just as the first visit we enjoyed our stay. The cottage was clean and had all the amenities just like you would at home. With close to many of the attractions in Cavendish, Charlottetown, and Summerside this cottage is ideally located.
Highly recommend this wonderful cottage in a very beautiful location. We rented it due to is proximity to Darnley Basin and Malpeque Bay and were not disappointed. Although off the beaten path, it is still a very short drive to amenities, towns, and restaurants. It is also very close to great beaches and sandbars. It didn't hurt that the sunsets were gorgeous over the water. The location is quiet and personal, with access to the Basin for kayaking in both small and large water. We were able to launch the kayaks only a short walk from the cottage. Great place to explore, go to ceilidhs, and even to drive to Stanley Bridge, Cavendish or North Rustico on those off days you may wish to join other "tourists" or buy some pottery. The cottage delivered on space, a kitchen with accessories, washer and dryer, and most importantly the roofed porch for relaxing, viewing bald eagles or you can even sit around the fire pit at night under the sky of stars! We have very happy memories to keep us going until our next visit.
Thunder Cove beach is 2-3 minutes from the cottage. Cabot Beach Provincial park is approximately 4-6 minutes. Cavendish area and attractions are just 22 mins away.
