Overview

Darnley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

How close to the water can you be without being in it? This beachfront property extends to the waterline of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The beach path is steps away from the spacious wrap-around lower level deck, and leads to miles of beautiful, unspoiled, sandy beach on the north shore of Prince Edward Island. The deck and great room offer a view of the sun rising from the sea and setting over the cliffs to the West.

The cottage's upper-level deck-offering a panoramic view of Thunder Cove's dunes, cliffs, beach and sea-extends from an all-glass high-ceilinged great room. This 30 foot-wide room has four patio doors to the deck, and includes a living and dining area, as well as a modern kitchen with Corian countertops.

The two upper level bedrooms also open to the wrap-around deck. A central staircase leads to the lower deck with three bedrooms, a laundry room, a full bath, and a TV/recreation room, which opens to the sheltered lower deck on the dune with a view of the sea beyond.

The cottage has five bedrooms; three with queen beds, one with two twin beds, and one with two bunk beds sleeping four. In total, the cottage sleeps 12, plus two in the sofa bed in the downstairs TV/rec room. The two queen-sized bedrooms upstairs each have an ensuite bathroom with whirlpool baths. An additional full bathroom is located on the first floor.

Best summer vacation spot ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our one-week stay at Mostly Dune was by far the best vacation spot our family has ever enjoyed!! Very comfortable, well-maintained house with a great layout allowing for spectacular views of the ocean, sunrises and sunsets. Lots of opportunity on the upper deck for stargazing at night and sipping coffee in the morning. The public but very private beach is only a minute-walk away over the dune and is perfect, especially for families with young children - soft sand, shallow waters and close by. Our kids especially enjoyed catching crabs in the ocean in August! A short stroll down the beach provides some fantastic natural wonders to explore in rocks and caves. Great places nearby to pick up fish and seafood for dinner, great local souvenirs and even play some golf. Mostly Dunes is a hidden treasure. Can't wait for a return visit again!

Mostly Dune was absolutely amazing!! The house is beautiful, very clean and well maintained. The pictures on the site do not do justice to the house. Morning were spent with a cup of coffee on the beautiful upper deck overlooking the Gulf. The location was exceptional just a short walk down the dunes to the beautiful beach. When booking the house the owners responded quickly to my enquiry via email followed by a phone call. The housekeeper Sherry was amazing she came and opened up the house for us and was always available for any questions we had. I would highly recommend this house to everyone and look forward to renting it again. I would suggest that maybe you should go a little later in the year as many things were not yet open for the season the third week of May.
