The kids will love to come back to the cottage after a hot day at the beach and enjoy the air conditioner conveniently located in the loft area on the second floor. This area consists of two custom-built double beds, a dresser, a closet, and a washer and dryer.
Our 4-piece bath features a hot air tub for your relaxation and comfort. Hot air tubs differ from spas, or hot tubs, in that they are filled and drained with each use. And unlike whirlpools which circulate a mixture of water and air, air massage tubs have small holes along the bottom of the tub that release a steady stream of air bubbles into the tub. Intensity and strength can be easily controlled by the user.

Superb location within an easy walk of the ocean. Cottage is new with beautiful wood interior with all the luxuries inc. washer/dryer, dishwasher, gas fireplace. I have allergies so I needed a clean environment with no mould or pets and this cottage was perfect. Terrific hosts who have looked after us for many summers. We came from BC so couldn't bring many beach things, but Susie and Mervin lent us whatever we needed. Quiet and private- we'll be back again.

We've just finished our 3rd summer in this cottage, and plan on returning next year. The cottage is beautifully finished, fully equipped, and impeccably maintained, with plenty of room for ourselves and our kids. The owner's are always available, extremely helpful and friendly. Situated in a peacefull location, minutes from the beach, this has become our home away from home. We highly recommend it.

Our family has stayed in this cottage for two years in a row, and we plan on returning in the future. The location is ideal for people who want to visit the outstanding beaches of Pei's national park. The cottage is modern, very clean and well maintained, and the owners are practically always available to address any concerns. Our young children have enjoyed the spacious property and its playground. All things considered, this is pretty much a perfect cottage rental for families who want to vacation in this part of PEI.

The cottage was impeccable. The attention to detail above expectations We found it clean, roomy, and well decorated and felt at home there.
The owners are friendly and always on site if you need anything.
We enjoyed very much that the cottage is a walk away to the national park and beach and we loved going for a sunset walk on the beach almost every night! The site is tucked away on a quiet private lot which makes for a relaxing stay
