About Tim

I work for a commercial builder and I have worked pretty much throughout Canada. I fell in love with PEI a lot of years ago. A few years back, we bought a 'family farm' on PEI to share with my family - and we have thoroughly enjoyed our experience in southeast PEI. When this fantastic cottage on 17 seaside acres was available, there was no resistance! We want to share the PEI experience with those who will respect the island and the fantastic islanders, alike.

Tim purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Tim chose Prince Edward Island

It's cozy, comfortable & it evokes the whole culture of PEI! Beautiful interior, exterior & yard - with simple perennial gardens and apple trees near the cottage - and crops from the 'yard' to the edge of the sea. Gorgeous views abound!

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, quiet, views, full digital TV & wireless, vintage antique furniture, oceanfront solitude, water activities (kayak and paddle board are available for renter's uses), proximity to attractions.

charming

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for 10 days for a working vacation and it was absolutely perfect for us. Both of us were working on various writing projects so a quiet spot by the seaside fit the bill nicely. The house is charming, well decorated and maintained and the owners were very helpful. The private path down to the harbor was a nice break whenever we needed a walk. We were there in April so obviously the weather was a bit cold (we even got a bit of snow!) which was actually great for us because we needed to work and it just made it all that much more cozy. All in all it was a great experience. We did manage to set off the alarm once though (sorry Tim).

Cute Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our little dog enjoyed a weeks stay at this cottage. We relaxed, enjoyed the bikes, and even took the canoe out in the bay one day.

It's quite private and lots of room for a dog or children to run in the back yard. The reason I won't give it five stars is because of the surveillance cameras at each entrance. The owner must have had some problems to need to put them up but it's not fun to sit on the back porch with tea and look up to a surveillance camera pointed your way, kinda spoils the moment.

Also, the bathroom door wouldn't latch or even close all the way due to the humidity. This wasn't a problem because it was just my husband and I but something to consider if there was more than one couple or a family.

Otherwise it's a cute, clean cottage with character.

Charming house by the Bay!

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay here in Aug/September 2015. The cottage was as described. The canoe, kayaks, and bikes were there to enjoy along with the life jackets a and bike helmets. A canoe ride and the bikes were a highlight for us. ( A side note the one bike seat needs to be fixed. It wouldn't stay in place, so we temporarily "rigged" it while we used it.)

The cottage is older which brings the admired character along with a few quirks. It was damp that time of year so due to the moisture the bathroom door wouldn't shut completely, which was ok for just my husband and I but might be a problem if there was a family or more than husband and wife.

The reason I don't give it a five star is that there was video surveillance at both entrances. Obviously there has been some problems for the owners but I personally don't like to be on vacation and have the feeling we are being watched whenever we sit on the porch or come and go. If that doesn't bother you then I would highly recommend this place.

It is a charming, clean cottage with lots of yard for a child/ren to run or a pet to run like we did. I enjoyed walking to the water once or twice a day and my little doggy was thrilled too. 😄

Owner's Response: Hello - thank you for the excellent review! Please be certain of two things: 1. We will fix the bike seat - we appreciate hearing of this issue! 2. We NEVER spy on our guests - the cameras are only there for security during the non-rental season months. We are happy that you found the cottage and the property to be comfortable. We agree, the age-related quirks are charming in their own regards. Again, thank you very much - and welcome back!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family was thrilled with this rental. We found it even better than described - unspoiled, quiet location; lovely and well-equipped cottage; beautiful beaches nearby; and within easy travel distances to other parts of the island. We look forward to coming again and experiencing the kind of total relaxation this rental offers!

Week long paridise stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, CLEAN cottage!! Very private with lots of yard space and access to ocean. Screened in porch is wonderful with view of ocean! Wet days are easily passed with good satellite TV package and wifi. Close to Pooles Cornors where they have THE best Ceildilh in the area as well as dances on Saturday nights. Cardigan tourist info is very close and helpful! Would stay here again without hesitation!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful response - thank you! We realize that the weather during your stay wasn't as sunny as it could have been. It sounds like you were able to enjoy the cottage and the nearby surroundings, nonetheless. Excellent! Please stay in touch if you wish to visit again. Have a terrific fall!

Perfect peace and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this cottage. The cottage was cute and clean, with a very comfortable bed, and a beautiful screened-in back porch. The beach was the greatest part though. So quiet and private and beautiful. We even saw a bald eagle fly overhead. My husband had a great time using the kayak and checking out the seals in the nearby cove. If you want extreme quiet (unlike anything we have ever experienced, and we live in the country), this is the cottage to rent.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed the waterfront - seals, eagle and all! Thanks, too, for the comments about how clean the cottage is kept - that is very important to us. We also love the quiet at this cottage - so glad you did, too. We will be happy to welcome you back in the future!

If you love the outdoors, you will find it here....or nearby!

We have a kayak and a paddle board, for use with this rental and we also have a selection of indoor and outdoor games.....of the old-fashioned & interactive variety! The property is served with security system, high speed wireless internet, smart TV and phone.

The nearby communities of Murray River and Murray Harbour have interesting shops and restaurants serving great food & drink. Montague is also very nearby - with full services, a wider selection of food & drink and a vibrant harbour.

Panmure Island Provincial Beach is fantastic! The beach sand is white, the ocean is warm and all of this beauty lies hidden from the road/ parking lot by gorgeous sand dunes. They have lifeguards, a small restaurant c/w ice cream and a liquor license. It is located about 6 - 7 minutes drive away.

Basin Head Beach, also a Provincial Park, is about a 40 minute drive away - but we find it worth driving to at least once a week during summer! This is home of the 'singing sands' and the 'jumping bridge' - visit to discover details, for yourself!

This location is not especially close to such tourist attractions as Ripley's Museum, Anne of Green Gables, et cetera. These attractions are about a 1.5 hour drive NW of our property - so they are still convenient enough to visit, if you wish to.
