Why Paul Silvio chose Cape Traverse
How we stumbled upon PEI. When we first visited PEI in 2009 we rented a home for a week and enjoyed our stay so much that we actually bought this waterfront land while we were there! Over the next several years we returned to PEI every summer - again renting homes- and as we became more and more attached to this wonderful island we finally decided to build our own family vacation home which was completed in the spring of 2014. We built this home with our expanding family in mind. Walks on the beach , family boccie games on the red sand at low tide, shucking oysters on the expansive deck over looking the Northumberland Strait , movie nights as we hear the soft sound of the waves … our family has built lasting memories here. My wife and I wanted a beach house to provide our family a place to make these memories .. a place we would look forward to coming back year after year together.
What makes this Cottage unique
Augustine Cove is the most enchanting beach we have ever seen. Our home sits right on the water with fantastic views from every room.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely cottage in a gorgeous location.
Cove House was perfect for our family vacation on PEI. We enjoyed relaxing on the large deck, kayaking, and riding bikes. The house is spacious and very comfortable. Wonderful vacation spot!
Enjoyed our stay in Augustine Cove.
We stayed in the Cove house with two other couples from 7/7/18-7/14/18. It was perfect for our group as we each had our own bedroom and bathroom. One of the bedrooms has 3 twin beds, so suitable for families. The home was very clean and nicely furnished. It had everything we needed and more - furniture, living space, books, games, puzzles, tv, wifi, stereo, etc. The kitchen had all the necessary appliances, pots and pans, cooking utensils, and an abundance of serving dishes (and coffee mugs!).
The deck overlooking the bay is very large; we used the 6 comfortable Adirondack chairs every day. We also used the 4 kayaks as there is a short passageway through the tall grass to the waterfront. We found some back river channels that were nice because the seawater was often choppy. It’s a beautiful view from the back deck and we went walking along the shore when the tide was out. We used the fire pit on several nights, and the house has 6 portable chairs to set around the fire. We also rode the bikes provided around the area.
Victoria city had some nice restaurants and craft/antique shops and is about 15 minutes away. Charlottetown also had a nice section of restaurants/bars. Lots of options for golfing and sightseeing. We drove to all parts of the island from Augustine Cove.
The owner (Paul) was very accommodating and responsive regarding any questions or concerns we had. Prior to the trip, he responded within a day with answers to any questions and was helpful in providing details about the house and PEI. We had a couple questions when we were at the house and he responded within an hour or two. Handling payments was very easy and he sent the deposit refund check the day after we left. (Note: During our vacation, the US-Canada currency rate favors the U.S. and we got some money off the VRBO listed price which is in Canadian $.)
We had a great stay and would highly recommend this house if you’re looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting.
Great Week in PEI
We had a great week at this beautiful cottage in Augustine Cove. We've stayed in PEI many times before, and we can definitely say that this was one of the nicest places. When the tide is out, there's plenty of beach to play on, and we took full advantage of everything that was on offer at the cottage--particularly the kayaks and board games. Overall, we would definitely recommend this beach house to families with young children.
Fantastic family vacation
This is a great house and location for a family vacation. A newly built home with all the modern amenities but with the charm and character of a more traditional beach house - impeccably equipped and decorated. It was perfect for our family of 7 adults + 1 infant. The main floor den makes a great 4th bedroom (with pull out couch). The location is fantastic on a quiet road with beautiful views of the beach and cover - perfect for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. Beach is great for long walks at low tide and kayaking at high tide. We would highly recommend for a family vacation. Paul was very helpful and accessible throughout the booking process and vacation.
Heaven on Earth
We stumbled upon this beautiful home while planning our first trip to PEI and we were not disappointed. We truly couldn't decide which was more wonderful, the house or the island. Just steps from the red sand and calm water bay, we were able dig for clams and paddle board on the calmest ocean water I have ever seen. The home was decorated with every detail you would need. Well furnished and the attention to detail may make it so you might not want to venture out to the island. But if you do, there is so much to do on this island of paradise. I think that if you are considering staying on the island please look no further.
Plenty of activities to from kayaking up the river to playing a little football on the beach. You definitely will not be disappointed. The owners were very hospitable and answer everyone of my questions promptly.
Not only would we recommend this property, we will be back soon.
We can’t thank you enough for sharing your wonderful summer paradise with us. Your home is beautiful! Everyone loved the space and took full advantage of the bikes and kayaks and beautiful waterfront.
We have been raving about your wonderful place since we returned. We wouldn’t be surprised if our close friends are knocking on your door soon.
