Darnley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

ottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6-8)

Our cottage is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, cozy home away from home. Come and enjoy the crisp, clean ocean air. We are located a stones throw away from Thundercove beach, the best beach on PEI. Enjoy the unique wildlife that PEI has to offer, and if you are lucky, maybe you will see a whale or two. The cottage has room for 6 in the bedrooms, with one room having a double bed and bunk beds, and the other bedroom having a queen bed. In the living room we have included a hide-a-bed for an additional bed for 2. The bathroom is a 3 piece bath (toilet, sink, shower), and our kitchen comes complete with a full stand up fridge, stove, sink, and a table to accommodate 6. The cottage comes fully furnished, which includes dishes, cutlery, towels, linens, beach toys, chairs, BBQ, etc... The cottage sits on a 0.5 acre lot, so you have plenty of room for parking, games, and of course there is a fire pit. You can BBQ on the side deck or just simply enjoy a nice evening sitting on the veranda. The neighbours are wonderful, the setting is beautiful. You won't be disappointed. We are fully certified by Tourism PEI.

About Dwayne McMillan, Angela Arsenault

We currently live in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada. We are a family of 5, and we have deep roots in PEI. With family in Summerside, Charlottetown, and Central Lot 16, we tend to be on the island a lot. I am a Firefighter and my wife is a School Teacher. I grew up in Calgary, while my wife grew up in PEI. We love the island, and I know you will too.

Dwayne McMillan, Angela Arsenault purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Dwayne McMillan, Angela Arsenault chose Prince Edward Island

We purchased this property after many, many years of searching the island. The first time I visited PEI, my wife took me to Thunder Cove, and I fell in love. It is a beautiful area, with a world class beach.

What makes this cottage unique

We chose this property because of the location, and the awesome front veranda. We have spent many nights out on the porch, enjoying the ocean air, and listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. After buying the property, we later realized what great neighbours we have and the wonderful beach walks that go on forever.

Great summer cottage

  • 3 of 5

A great location in very scenic PEI, Cottage has everything you need and is a 5 minute walk to the beach. If you just want to relax in a traditional family cottage then take a look at this. If you need supplies town is only a short drive away. The cottage is stocked with a large dvd library and is currently without TV which we felt was a plus

Very clean and well equipped

Cozy cottage with an amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation to PEI exceeded our expectations! It was such a relaxing trip and we felt right at home at the cottage. We had 7 adults and we all were comfortable, our only complaint was only 1 bathroom but we made do. We enjoyed cooking dinner at night, sitting out by the fire, or playing cards at the table. The beach is just a short walk and was beautiful! Just a short drive to many restaurants or sights.

Cozy thunder cove cottage

  • 5 of 5

The name reflects the cottage "COZY". We all enjoyed our stay in Thunder Cove, and would definitely head back. It was clean ,spacious, and not far from sights to see and things to do. Very relaxing place to go?
