Property description

Sea Watch Cottage, situated at the end of a 1 kilometer private road, is located on a large 2.5 acre property affording spectacular views of the ocean, fishing boats and stunning sunsets. The fishing village of Miminegash is seen from the front deck and yard. It is at the north end of the 'pond' a large body of water over which you can see beautiful sunrises and watch many water fowl. A staircase over the cape leads to the wide red sandy beach and the ocean with the warmest temperatures north of the Carolinas, ideal for swimming and playing in the water. The beach extends for many K. in both directions. The fire pit is situated near the top of the cape so none of the beauty is ever lost during your stay. Walking south one can see the many windmills of West Cape and following the beach to the north brings you to the village of Miminegash, the fishing harbor with boats and a fresh daily supply of seasonal catch such as scallops and lobster. Our cottage is very clean and bright. It has 2 bedrooms one with a full master bath and King size bed and the other right next to the 2nd full bathroom having 2 single beds which can be converted into a King bed. A sofa-bed in the living room allows space for 2 extra people. Upon arriving at the cottage one renter stated, "this was more than I bargained for".

Seawatch Cottage is located at the end of a little travelled cul de sac. It is private and quiet. The beach is easily reached at the edge of the grassy yard and down a staircase. One can play on the beach, find sea glass, walk for miles and even in about 20 minutes to the small fishing village of Miminegash. Here you can watch the fishing boats come and go and buy fresh seafood from the fishermen when in season. Our caretakers are fishermen and sometimes will bring fresh lobster or scallops right to the door at a great price. They are also a great source of information and always ready to help if there is a need. It is an easy drive to the 3 small villages in the area, the Potato Museum, 2 lighthouses and their wonderful dinning facilities. The cottage has a good supply of brochures to aide you in finding things to see and do.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a young professional couple from Toronto with 2 young children who fell in love with PEI the first time we visited. We cherish our peaceful time at the cottage which is a haven from our hectic city life.

Why the Owner Chose Miminegash:
We love nature, cottage living, beach holidays, great food (especially lobster and scallops)! This property has ocean, beautiful sand, stunning sunrises and sunsets, and lots of space with natural forest to explore. It's more than we dreamed of and is always our perfect family getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A typical day at the cottage for us starts with fresh coffee in the morning while watching the sun rise over the pond and the birds waking to greet the day. Mornings are great for a long walk or play on the beach. In the afternoon, swimming, napping, and making sand castles, followed by a walk to the harbour to meet the fishermen arriving with fresh lobster (early August to early October), or scallops in May/June. These dates are set differently each year.. After cleaning up with a fresh outdoor shower, dinner is made and served at a picnic table by the campfire overlooking the cape. We wait for the final show... an incredible sunset which never disappoints. Then, a good nights sleep, and repeat the next day!
