About Lisa MacEwen

My name is Lisa MacEwen and this land has been in my family for over 200 years. I grew up down the road and this property was the site of a Homestead, built in 1805, by my Great Great Grandparents and later by my Great Aunt. I live in Toronto with my 2 children. We built this home in 2012 to enjoy for ourselves for several weeks in the summer.

Lisa MacEwen purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Lisa MacEwen chose Prince Edward Island

This is a special place with some of the oldest Chestnut trees in PEI, dating back to 1914, (which my Great Uncle brought back from California, to plant, before he headed of the WW1). After unsuccessful attempts to save the old Homestead, I decided to demolish it and built a brand new modern, modest but spacious and cozy home. I was able to save some pieces from the old Homestead that were incorporated in the decor and construction to give this new place some traditional character. Although I own other waterfront land on the Westriver, I chose to build here, as this land has a special, tranquil and peaceful energy to it, with a view! Every time I come home here, I don't want to leave!

What makes this bungalow unique

The water on the South Shore is warmer and safer than the tourist popular Northshore. Canoe Cove, 5 minutes away, is one of the most popular south shore beaches known for its safe water, tide pools and red cliffs. You can also have you own private access to the West River in front of the property where you can explore by digging clams, oysters and mussels. The property also has 2 hammocks, 4 adirondack chairs around a fire pit, soceer and volleyball/badminton nets, two tire swings, swing, horseshoe set.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home is beautiful and so well equipped that it made our holidays effortless. We absolutely loved the beach towels! We really loved the quiet setting, with the big property for the kids. When we get back to the Island, this will definitely be the place for us to stay. Thanks for everything.

One of the best places we've ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

The Westville Vista was secluded, modern, and very comfortable. Waking up everyday to the stunning view of the West River and a full kitchen to cook breakfast was the perfect way to start our days before heading out to explore the sights. The cottage's central location made day trips convenient, and shops were all close by with some great recommendations left for us by the owners. The property itself is vast, beautiful, and relaxing. We made several walks to the water to walk the beach and get a closer look at the falcons nest. In short, we loved the place!

The rental process was made easy by the owners. They made everything clear from start to finish; we even had a small plumbing problem that was taken care of by the owners and property managers almost immediately. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us. Highly recommended to anyone visiting PEI.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful comments Scott. I am now here at Westville with my family for three weeks and always feel so peaceful and relaxed. The water is like a mirror this morning. I noticed that you left your large cook pot, did you want me to bring it back to Toronto for you? If so, happy to put it in the car! Kindly, Lisa MacEwen

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! We had a day of rainy coastal weather where we cuddled inside and made a wonderful dinner with the full kitchen and one stunning sunny day where we napped in hammocks, explored beaches and had an amazing BBQ dinner.

The place was easy to find and very clean and tidy on arrival. Loved how there was oil and salt and pepper (plus a few other essentials) in the cubbords. Wonderfully equipped kitchen and with the grocer a five minute drive away we easily had everything we needed.

PEI is a beautiful destination everyone should see and after a long day of exploring this is the wonderful place you want to come home to, and then wake up to to energize you for the next day. Highly recommend, had a wonderful stay!

We made the right choice!

  • 5 of 5

So happy with our choice of rentals for our recent family vacation to PEI. This was our (myself, my husband and our 7 year old twins) first visit to the island and we don't tend to over-plan our vacations, so location is always a key factor. Lisa's property is not only gorgeous, but it is in an excellent location. Super close to a gas station/convenience/ice cream store and only a short drive to everything else imaginable. We took advantage of most of the amenities on site...fire pit, tire swings, hammock and huge yard. The riverfront was perfect for morning beachcombing and there are several other options close-by. I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't available in the house, and we do a lot of cooking! Privacy was top notch. Beds were comfortable. The entire place was very clean. We've all agreed that we will return to PEI and to Westville Vista!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Such a beautiful home! Plenty of space inside and out. We were able to easily access grocery stores, liquor store, drug store.....with in minutes. Our kids loved to beach comb morning and evening, and got plenty of use out of the tire swings! The bonfire pit was a plus! Our favourite part was the view, morning coffee right outside the master bedroom each day. A very tranquil, peaceful place. We will definitely be returning!

cottage with perfect view

  • 4 of 5

Breathtaking view on arrival. With binnoculars you can sit and enjoy falcons nest, herons, grouse, fish rising in the bay. good location to travel the south of the island. shops, restaurants etc just minutes away. Cottage has everything you need for a relaxing break. The weather was awful but the family still managed a paddle in the ocean and lots of pub grub. we will come again hopefully when mother nature cooperates!

Michael & Judy

  • 5 of 5

Quality throughout, cozy and inviting, spectacular view from the comfortable master bedroom. You can see the moon and stars from the bed in the master bedroom. The kitchen had everything you would like to have for a quick lunch or if you were having a dinner party. All sorts of closet and storage space. If you don't find everything you need, then all I can say is that you didn't look for it hard enough.

This kind of privacy is very rarely to be found anywhere, and yet you feel so very safe and secure.

Speaking from experience of staying in many different vacation cottages, many here on the Island, I can say that this has been superb.

If you are looking for great value and an enjoyable stay, look no further.

Would stay here again.
