Darnley cottage description

Our cottage is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, cozy home away from home. Come and enjoy the crisp, clean air ocean air. We are located a stones throw away from Thundercove beach, the best beach on PEI. Enjoy the unique wildlife that PEI has to offer, and if you are lucky, maybe you will see a whale or two. The cottage has room for 6 in the bedrooms, with one room having a double bed and bunk beds, and the other bedroom having a queen bed. In the living room we have included a hide-a-bed for an additional bed for 2. The bathroom is a 3 piece bath (toilet, sink, shower), and our kitchen comes complete with a full stand up fridge, stove, sink, and a table to accommodate 6. The cottage comes fully furnished, which includes dishes, cutlery, towels, linens, beach toys, chairs, BBQ, etc... The cottage sits on a 0.5 acre lot, so you have plenty of room for parking, games, and of course there is a fire pit. You can BBQ on the side deck or just simply enjoy a nice evening sitting on the veranda. The neighbours are wonderful, the setting is beautiful. You won't be disappointed. We are fully certified by Tourism PEI.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We currently live in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada. We are a family of 5, and we have deep roots in PEI. With family in Summerside, Charlottetown, and Central Lot 16, we tend to be on the island a lot. I am a Firefighter and my wife is a School Teacher. I grew up in Calgary, while my wife grew up in PEI. We love the island, and I know you will too.

                  Why the Owner Chose Darnley:
                  We purchased this property after many, many years of searching the island. The first time I visited PEI, my wife took me to Thunder Cove, and I fell in love. It is a beautiful area, with a world class beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We chose this property because of the location, and the awesome front veranda. We have spent many nights out on the porch, enjoying the ocean air, and listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. After buying the property, we later realized what great neighbours we have and the wonderful beach walks that go on forever.
