Property description

Welcome to “Sea, Sand and Stars Cottage', where you will experience PEI's overwhelming wonders of ocean waves, a beautiful, clean soft red sandy beach, perfect quietness, and amazing starry night skies. All this surrounding a 'home away from home' that will provide you with everything that you could need for a perfect holiday.
The cottage is on a large grassy, spruce and larch bordered lot overlooking the cape, 500 ft. of beach and the Northumberland Strait. The beach is accessed by an easy, safe, short walk, on a gently sloped pathway through trees, shrubs and flowers. There are no difficult steps for seniors or children to climb. Plan to swim, surf the waves, relax under the umbrella or build sand castles in the sun. You can recline on lawn chairs on the deck or at the cape or play games on the large lawn while watching birds, the fishing boats, and ocean waves. The verandah provides a sunny place to curl up or eat a meal.

Walk the beach for miles either to the Miminegash Harbor (20 minutes) where fishing boats come and go carrying their seasonal catches which one can purchase, or walk the other direction from the property with a view of the windmills and the stunning, ever changing ocean waves and sunsets views.

Miminegash is a little fishing village with a great harbour, 2 convenience stores, a post office and a gas station.

To be sure this is a vacation home in which to rest and relax or travel to many interesting places near by.

PAYMENT OPTIONS: VISA and MASTERCARD are accepted as well as Certified Cheques or Money orders. Canadians can do e-mail money transfers.

COTTAGE AND PROVISIONS: The well cared for Cottage is spacious and bright. It is located with trees on either side, off a rarely traveled lane, and facing the cape and ocean. The living area, bedrooms, and verandah all face the ocean with big windows. There are plenty of towels, and linens provided. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with more than enough place settings, pots and pans, electric appliances and dishwasher. Books and games are available for evenings and rainy days. The living room has a large leather sectional with recliners and a reclining chair. Meals can be had in the dining area, the verandah or out on the deck with plenty of table space and chairs. The verandah offers a cozy area to curl up and read, visit or play games. There is even an office to locate your computer away from the general living space of the family.

Extra amenities are available in case you forget to bring some of the necessary toiletries and there is a small supply of food in the kitchen.

This beautiful cottage is located on a quiet peninsula away from hustle and bustle, where a truly relaxing holiday can be enjoyed. Spend time on the wide sandy beach reached by walking along a gently sloping pathway through a tree, shrub and flower lined path. One can walk for miles along the ocean which is the warmest water north of the Carolina States. Miminegash is less than a 1/2 hour beach walk from the cottage. Lobsters can be purchased from the fishing boats in season (August to October). Scallops and other fish are also available in season at the stores, the fish truck, or our Caretaker/Fisherman. The ocean waves, night stars, sunsets, and birds will keep you enthralled. The deck, weather-proof verandah or the cape are fantastic places to relax, read or have meals while watching the fishing boats and ocean waves. The screened,and windowed veranda and deck are fully equipped with tables, sun umbrellas and chairs, barbeque and lobster cooker.

Other Activities: Playing on the beach is definitely a high priority for the children in your family. Once there, our guests tell us they have trouble getting the children to want to do anything else. The beach is very private as it does not have easy access to other than the people living in the immediate area. Buying the seasonal fish or lobsters and having your own big cook out will be a most memorable experience. And you don't have to give up on Mom's special dinners as the kitchen is totally equiped for easy meal preparations.

Be sure to take time to find one of the many accesses to the Confederation Trail and experience a walk along the old train track bed while you dream of the old days. PEI offers a unique, quiet and restful, happy and friendly atmosphere to give you a holiday to remember.

Golf: There are several golf courses in the area. The two closest are, Mill River about 20 K away and St. Felix, a 9 hole course about 20 K.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Welcome to our 'Home Away from Home' Cottage in Prince Edward Island, Canada. In 2007 we visited the Maritime Provinces on a whim and absolutely fell in love with the ocean, the life style and the people. We almost bought a property immediately, but we decided to look around first. After looking at 75 properties in the Maritime Provinces we found this cottage and knew immediately that it was the place for us. Since purchasing it in August, 2008, we have been out (from Alberta) at least twice a year for extended periods and have rented it for a good portion of each summer. Our whole family spends some of their vacations at the cottage and all want to stay. Our family and friends describe it as being heavenly. From the guest book comments, we are sure that like us, you would go away from a vacation at this cottage refreshed and relaxed just like we do. Welcome to our 'Home'. Irene and Gene Huber

Why the Owner Chose Miminegash:
This cottage was the only property that was perfect for us. It has a wide, expansive, clean beach with shallow water for children to play, The water is the warmest north of the Cariolina's. The house was very clean and well maintained, well furnished with only special additions needed to make it our own. There is a large verandah in which we installed windows so that we now can use it in all weather and at any time of the day. This is a wonderful place to eat breakfast while watching the fishing boats and dinner watching the sunsets. The yard is large so our grandchildren (if they are not at the beach) can play safely.

The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
We are very prompt to reply to your inquiry and correspond with you directly, answering your many questions to help you as you plan. Our payment system is through the HELCIM Credit Card Company, a secure Canaian/US Company.
