Very comfortable cottage and plenty of extra amenities. Lots of board games, books, movies, yard games and even extra golf clubs. Owner was very helpful answering questions prior to arrival and shared contact information to get in touch in case we had questions while we were there. The water is just steps away and the shallow bay was great for kayaking with kids. We enjoyed walking along the beach and digging for clams as well. We enjoyed biking around the neighbourhood and surrounding communities. Absolutely beautiful bike trails in nearby Cavendish with paved trails right along the coast. The items in the shared clubhouse (close proximity to the cottage) could use a little TLC but we really enjoyed playing ping pong, pool and shuffleboard. The heated pool was a real treat as well given the weather was cool during our stay. Some of the golf course and most of the cottage lawn have some flooding issues when it rains but it probably drys out more in mid summer. Only other complaint is that there was not an extra set of bedsheets available. This became an issue when we needed to wash a set of sheets and it was raining so they couldn't be dried. Not ideal to spend an afternoon of vacation at the laundromat. We enjoyed our stay and would rent again.
One of our best family holidays!
We had such a great week at this cottage. Jim was really easy to deal with and very quick to answer any questions that we had. The cottage is really clean and well decorated and has a really neat rustic charm to it. We have 3 kids and there was tons for them to do at the cottage or across the street at the pool and mini put course. In the waterfront at the cottage you can play in the knee deep water, dig for clams or enjoy the kayaks. The water is nice and calm so we had no concerns letting our kids play out there. We would recommend water shoes as there are lots of shells and it can be a bit mucky when the tide is out, but that's great clam digging time, we found tons! The shed beside the cottage is also full of lots of treasures, we were so thankful that the owners shared all their personal toys and games with us.
One of the biggest perks of this cottage was that it's part of the larger Hebrides community which gives you access to a heated pool, 9 hole golf course, mini put course and games room. The kids loved playing 9 holes with us after dinner and we were often the only ones on the course.
The cottage is nice and close to all the local attractions of Stanley Bridge and Cavendish, but slightly set apart so you don't get all the crowds and traffic. The owners left some suggestions of where to go and what to see in a very informative booklet and we found that quite helpful.
We would highly recommend staying here and were quite sad to leave!
All that was advertised and more!
The cottage was in a great location. Close enough to all we wanted to see but wonderfully peaceful. Plenty of room for 7 women. Full kitchen with all the gear. Lots of great books. Didn’t miss the tv at all. Mr. Randall was an attentive owner who has made the extra effort to have all a guest could ask for. Would highly recommend this cottage. We would rent it again in a heartbeat.
Perfect location with all the commodites
Our family had a marvelous time on PEI in Jim and Brenda’s perfectly appointed cottage. Rain or shine there is always something fun to do with all that is included. The location is perfect for numerous day trips. Sunsets are marvellous and the quiet surrondings make for a very relaxing vacation. If you’re a little epicurian and like to cook like I do, the kitchen is well equipped. For groceries it’s worth a drive to Summerside to the Atlantic Superstore.
The cottage was perfect. It was clean, well stocked and we couldn't ask for a better location. We had 7 people- including 3 young children and the activities kept them busy. Having the community complex with the pool and golf course was a huge asset. We would return here for another vacation for sure!
Very nice, relaxing
Jim was great answering all my questions upfront via email and met us in person right when we arrived. The cottage is lovely and the setting perfect. Jim showed us everything in the shed for our use and in the house.
The firepit is a great addition and enjoyed it a couple of nights, firewood and marshmallow roasting sticks provided! Perfect location for watching the sunset and it is very pretty, get a great view over the bay.
We were able to leave our kayaks right near the firepit so did not have to port them far to launch. The tide is pretty low in this area until you get out and around to the west side of the island which is only about a mile. We enjoyed paddling to the national park which is a mile across and not many people there. There is also a nice, sandy beach near the lighthouse which you can either paddle to or drive and park. I biked a couple of times, the road into the cottage is a bit bumpy (packed red clay) but not bad. Very scenic, long rolling hills.
We found a couple nice dining options on our travels around the island and the lobster dinner at New Glasgow is highly recommended, great way to end our trip!
The cafe that provided WiFi is no longer open currently, we had data, so either do that or better yet, leave your devices off and enjoy! The island is beautiful, people are friendly (a woman in the grocery store told us where to get fresh lobster so we could make our own lobster rolls for picnic lunches) and the music is great (nearby Stanley Music Hall has a concert every night and at intermission have great local ice cream and strawberries).
Jim and Brenda have a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting with all the amenities for a very nice, relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Would highly recommend.
P.S. Just a couple updates and additions to the booklet would be helpful but know that information can change so you just have to check some things out as you explore.
