|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Live the relaxing beach life in our ocean-front cottage on PEI's Northumberland Strait, which has the warmest ocean waters north of South Carolina!!
Our wonderful summer home is situated on 4 private acres directly on the water's edge with a beautiful red sand beach and warm, shallow waters, with spectacular long-range views of Egmont Bay, Cape Egmont lighthouse, Mont Carmel cathedral, the Confederation Bridge, and the distant shore of New Brunswick.
The cottage is newly renovated and is turn-key with all needed equipment provided… you only need to bring food, beverages, personal items, and consumables for a great time!
The beach is composed of very fine, soft, red sand, with virtually no rocks or pebbles after the shoreline. June-August the water temperature often is in the high 70’s (~24-25 C) meaning you can spend all day wading and swimming in the water without getting blue lips or chattering teeth. The shallow waters extend out for hundred and feet, at which point they are still only waist-deep, making the beach perfect (and safe) for young children.
There is an extensive lawn around the cottage for kids to run around and play games.
There are stairs leading down to the beach from the lawn for easy access by young and old alike.
Although our stay was short and sweet, This place is really hard to beat
Till next time.....
This was our first visit to PEI, and our first choice of a vacation rental (based upon description and photos). We were not at all disappointed. The spot had wonderful views of the Northumberland Strait, and great access to the red beach and warm water (considered the warmest north of Florida). It is also located in a spot where access to the rest of the island was easy (although attractions and restaurants on the north are closer than those toward Charlottetown). We discovered that all of PEI is charming - from the hard-working and friendly people, to the breath-taking views wherever you look. Plus, the seafood is the best you can find anywhere. We highly recommend the Oyster Barn in Malpeque if you crave the best oysters. Be sure and make reservations, because there are only 7 tables. Our only recommendation for the property owners - supply an ironing board!
We loved our stay here, the cottage was more then we expected in every way.
The beach was fantastic and our kids loved it
Over all we were very happy with everything about this week and our time there and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone
