Stanhope Cape Beach PEI - Oceanviews and easy beach access at home away from home
"Nothing could be easier than staying here. You are a 10 minute walk from swimming in the warm Gulf ocean currents and exploring miles of sandy beaches. Our family has summer vacationed in the North Shore and Brackley Beach areas for decades. Yes, we've enjoyed many stays at the Inns and rented beach cottages but this year we wanted to host a family reunion in "our home." Within the first hour our family was at home here. By dinner time we'd had our ocean swims/walks, showered in luxurious bathrooms, bought fresh fish from Richard's and had the large dining table set for company. We could not believe how well designed and equipped this home is for entertaining with living rooms on both levels. Aside from the oceanviews from almost every room, there are balconies and decks galore for each to enjoy a private view of those awesome sunrises/sunsets. Once the sun went down, it was easy to fall asleep in comfy beds listening to ocean breezes. The peace and natural beauty of this location will draw you back as will the albums of cherished memories. The owners could write the manual on excellent customer service, notably their timely responses."

"Our family of 4 enjoyed our week at an Island Escape! Our young kids (6&3) loved the pool, open space & the great weather. Mom & Dad enjoyed the quiet and slow pace of being away from a busy everyday life while the kids could easily occupy themselves. Melanie and Dixie were fabulous and the cottage had everything we needed and more! Looking forward to a return trip!"

"Upon arrival we immediately knew we had made the right choice - the house is immaculate, everything you could want or need, the beach is so wonderful, and the whole vacation home community was so peaceful. We went to the beach everyday, even the grey days, we did family art around the big kitchen table, we sat on the deck and the wind kept the bugs at bay, the one chilly, rainy night we put the fire on and listened to music, we sat in the sun room in the morning and drank our coffee and drank in the view. We had a campfire, we read books, we flied kites, had a catch, slept in, got up early, ate great food, we never used the television once - one week was not enough. Kensington is a hop away for groceries and supplies, Cavendish is right there to fulfill any tourist needs - BUT WHY WOULD YOU GO - the beach here is 1000X's better and we would regularly comment "WHOA beach is packed today!" - with all 50 other people. I kayaked one of the calm days and saw a flower pot (similar to Fundy) to the left and so we hiked/swam around the point to get a closer look and it was a great little adventure. NEW POTATOES!!!!! Stop at the little veg stands (have cash) and definitely, definitely buy some strawberry and grand marnier jam from the PEI Preserve Company to have on your morning toast. We would go back tomorrow!!!"

The perfect house for a great PEI family vacation!
"The Stanley View Summer Home was the perfect location for two young families to spend our summer holiday! Clean and comfortable with lots of room and so many amenities to keep us comfortable for the week - including the welcome basket, which was a lovely touch! The kids loved the big yard to run around in (especially through the sprinkler!), as well as jumping off the nearby wharf and going for canoe rides. The adults loved the spacious deck, where we ate breakfast and dinner each day (enjoying the spectacular view!), as well as the screened-in porch area, great for relaxing in the evenings after the little ones were in bed! The Campbell family were wonderful hosts - answering many questions prior to the visit, stopping by to ensure everything was okay and even setting up the sprinkler for our children to enjoy! Thank you Campbell family - we can't wait to come back again!"
