Darnley cottage description

The Dunes is a modern beach house built on a peninsula that stretches along the north shore of PEI between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Darnley Basin. The beach house is perfect for couples or families and is ideal for four to six people. The 900 square foot home features a knotty pine interior with open vaulted ceilings in the living room, dining room and kitchen. The open living area looks out over a large deck to Darnley Basin through two sliding patio doors. It boasts a modern well-equipped kitchen with a ceramic cooktop stove, side by side refrigerator (ice and water), built-in dishwasher, and microwave oven.


Shopping & Services: A convenience store is a half km away at Twin Shores campground. It has a dairy bar, take-out restaurant and coffee shop. The best place for groceries is the Save Easy in Kensington. It’s open on Sundays. Kent and Castle are the two main hardware stores in Kensington. There are two service stations in Kensington along with a Scotiabank, Credit Union, Car Wash, a Video Store, Bakery, Gift Shops, Government Liquor Store and the Island Stone Pub.

Dining Out: Restaurants and tourist attractions can be found in several of the towns along the north shore. Carr’s Oyster Bar in Stanley Bridge is a great waterfront restaurant/pub. Some of the finest dining on the island can be found at The Dalvay near Stanhope and The Olde Mill Restaurant in New Glasgow. When leaving Lower Darnley Road, turn left onto Highway 20 and follow the scenic route to French River, Seaview, Stanley Bridge and New London. It is a beautiful drive along the gulf coast. Back towards Kensington is the Ship to Shore restaurant with its fresh seafood market - a real favorite with locals and guests. Fine dining is found five minutes north of Kensington, in Margate at The Shipwright's Cafe. The Stone Island Pub in Kensington is a must as is the Frosty Treat dairy bar.

                  Additional information about rental rates

                  Fees:

                  • Cleaning C$125
                  • Taxes Not included

                  Notes:

                  Rates include tax (14%)

                  Rates do not include Cleaning Fee - Cleaning is performed at the end of the visit and applied to the total visit (two weeks, one week, etc.) so, to be fair to those who rent for more than one week at a time it is separate from the weekly rental fee.

                  A 50% deposit is required to secure your booking - balance is due two weeks before your arrival. Payment can be by cheque or money order. Canadian customers may also make Interac email payments through their online banking service.


                  Always make sure to call the number on the listing to confirm payment details.
                  Only pay using credit card, PayPal, check or direct bank transfer. NEVER pay by cash or instant money transfer services such as Western Union or MoneyGram. Learn more

Great casual and fine dining is only a short drive along the magnificent north shore. The nearby town of Kensington has shopping, service stations, a bank and a medical center.

Some of the island’s most popular world-class golf courses are within a 20-30 minute drive.
