Darnley cottage description

The Captain's Rest is a beautiful well maintained 1100 sqft single story 3 bedroom cottage in Darnely, Prince Edward Island. Inspected and licenced by Tourism PEI

Enjoy breath taking sunsets and a fantastic ocean view from the wrap around covered deck. All bedrooms have queen size beds. Open the master bedroom's patio door and be caressed by a gentle ocean breeze. The fully equipped cottage is located on a large lot with no side or front neighbours. Just 300 feet from the shores of the Darnley Basin, and a mere 2 minutes to the most beautiful sandy beach on Prince Edward Island (Thunder Cove). Darnley Greens Golf course is 2 minutes away, and just 30 minutes to Charlottetown, 20 minutes to Summerside, 15 minutes to Cavendish, and 10 minutes to Kensington. The cottage has high definition tv, dvd, patio chairs, fire pit, washer and dryer, BBQ, outdoor lobster cooker, bedding, towels, and cutlery. The cottage also has a water softener and a UV light for water safety. Sit on the covered deck and watch the fishing boats in Darnley Basin harvest fresh PEI mussels. Peaceful relaxing environment await you.

Come stay on the island and enjoy fresh Atlantic lobster, clams, quahogs, oysters, and many more Maritime delicacies. There are so many things to do from swimming, golf, scenic drives, festivals, deep sea fishing, and live theater, but most visitors simply love the peaceful relaxing atmosphere of Prince Edward Island.

We are often booked a year in advance so please book your stay early.

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: We live in Niagara Ontario. We spent many summer holidays on Prince Edward Island and we love it there, so we decided to purchase a cottage.

              Why Darnley:
              Darnley is near the most beautiful beach on PEI and is close to Cavendish and Summerside. Also, Charlottetown is just 45 minutes away. Darnley has become the destination choice for cottage renters. PEI is one of the most beautiful places to vacation. It's gentle rolling hills are completely under agricultural development and full of wonderful green and gold colours; it is absolutely gorgeous.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The Captain's Rest is close to beautiful beaches, and the cottage is located in a quiet area over looking Darnley Basin. The cottage has a covered wrap around deck and as one guest put it 'a kayaker's paradise'. Our favourite thing is having our morning coffee and tea on the deck and watching the fishing boats in the Darnley Basin harvesting fresh PEI mussels; which we enjoy eating. There's nothing better than watching your dinner being caught fresh from the sea!
