“Our Visit to the Family Homestead”
We spent a week at the Dunes Beach House on Prince Edward Island in early September to explore our family heritage. It was by far one of the most relaxing vacations ever. The house was clean, large and open, yet cozy and comfortable for our group, and lacked no amenities. A second floor loft area is nice bonus space as is the wraparound porch. What a treat it was to wake up to the ocean view from the second floor suite. The neighborhood was quiet with the red sands of the beach just a short walk through the dunes, and the property overlooks a pond with active bird wildlife. Rental arrangements were easy and friendly. We enjoyed several very good local restaurants and explored shops, galleries, and rock formations as we walked the beach. We hope to pursue more of the many outdoor recreational activities available in the future and look forward to seeing more of PEI and the area our ancestors from England settled in the 1750s.
We rented this wonderful home last summer for one week and, at the end of that week, booked it for two weeks this summer! It is the complete package- fabulous house, beautiful setting. You are steps from the stunning beach and ocean and the house is spacious, gracious and so welcoming! I cannot recommend the Dunes Beach House too highly- the owners have thought of everything guests might need. We were a group of 6 with 3 teens and 3 adults and we all were determined to return for a longer stay. You will have a magical, always to be remembered experience here. Jan C. Peterborough, Ontario
“Phenomenal week with extended family”
The Dunes Beach House is the perfect cottage to choose when travelling with young children and extended family. The cottage is very spacious. My in-laws enjoyed having their own bedroom and bathroom upstairs, leaving the downstairs bedrooms and bathroom for our family of 6. The separation gave everyone the moments of privacy we needed during our holiday. The 3 main bedrooms and bathroom downstairs are located at the end of a hallway leading away from the main living areas, which made it easy to put our younger children to sleep without the adults having to worry about making too much noise in the kitchen or living room after bedtime. The cottage was spotless when we arrived, and the owners had thoughtfully left an array of brochures of area attractions and a map in the entry hall. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we appreciated all the indoor/outdoor games and beach toys provided. It was a short stroll across the backyard and over the sand dune to reach the breathtaking sand beach. There were very few people on the beach and the kids loved kite-flying, building sandcastles and body surfing in the waves! On a mom note, we loved not having to worry about losing our children in a crowd and the beach was shallow entry and great for young kids (ages 3,5,7,9)! As the day closed we sat around the bonfire and watched the sun set over the pond and sand dunes. Sitting there as the dune grass rustled and we heard the murmur of the waves lapping the beach, I realized that Tom and Nichole have truly found paradise on Prince Edward Island! We would love to return again!
“Wonderful family retreat”
An absolutely wonderful place! Dunes Beach House is ideal for those looking for a relaxing holiday where you are close to everything yet far enough away that at the end of the day, sitting on the porch looking at the sunset over the dunes, you can convince yourself you're miles away from anywhere! Wonderful golf courses, outstanding fisheries, lots do for the kids are all within a short drive. Dbh was perfect for our group consisting of 2 families...lots of space for everyone, great kitchen/living area, kids playroom and the outside shower was a favourite when coming back from the beach...and the fire pit provided hours of entertainment for the adults and kids with their smores! Enough toys and towels means less to pack! One of our best summer holidays ever and we'll be back for sure!
“A truly memorable holiday for the whole family”
The beach house could not have been more beautifully appointed. It was clean, comfortable and lacked for nothing. Lots of space for everyone, super comfortable beds and a fully-equipped kitchen. It was lovely to gaze out at the swaying dune grass, knowing that the beach was just over the hill. We really didn't want to leave that lovely spot.
“Relaxing home away from home - building memories”
we chose this spacious, comfortable beach house for a family gathering. With small children the spacious house allowed privacy when needed yet it felt homey and comfortable as a summer home should be. The accessibility to the beach (literally out the front door and up the sand dune) was fantastic and the wrap around veranda allowed the children to play within view. We loved the privacy of the community and the privacy of the beautiful beach. We hope to be able to return this year to continue to build lasting family memories - just checking the busy family schedules
“Beautiful Seaside Getaway”
The drive to the cottage from Charlottetown was stunning. We were able to stop for groceries and supplies on our way. The cottage is fully equipped with everything we needed. We were very impressed the kitchen, we had every comfort of home. The cottage is spacious and has a great loft upstairs where the kids could play. We spent every day on the beach and walked for miles in both directions. I have been to beaches all over the world but there is something very special about the red sand and the dunes of PEI. The water was warm and we all played for hours in the waves and on the beach. We loved having the outdoor shower to get the sand off of the kids. The BBQ and firepit were great extras that we really enjoyed. Booking the cottage was done very easily with Tom and Nichole and the property manager on site was very kind and helpful.
“Your own piece of paradise”
My family has rented the Dunes beach house twice in the last 3 years, we love it. The house is amazing and the beach and scenery are even better. There are plenty of family attraction near by. If golf is your thing than P.E.I. is your place. My young family and I plan to return to the Dunes beach house for many years to come. The owners of the property are fantastic, kind and curtious. We highly recommend the Dunes Beach house.
