Modern, clean, spacious, well-appointed house in perfect PEI location
"We stayed at Stanhope Dunes for two weeks in July. The house was an ideal space for a family of 6 (2 grandmothers, 2 parents, 2 children). Everyone had their own private space to read or relax and the common areas were spacious and beautifully decorated. The house is in a perfect position to enjoy sunsets over Covehead harbour and a perfect view of the Covehead lighthouse. The location can't be beat - only 20 minutes to sightseeing amenities such as Cavendish, Brackley Beach, North Rustico Harbour and also only 20 minutes to shops and stores in Charlottetown. The beach is within walking distance (even for children) and there are paved bike trails which are perfect for kids. The house had everything we needed to prepare meals in the large kitchen but was also close to great food (Richard's seafood is less than 1 km away, and Shaw's Hotel is only a 5 minute drive). Stanhope Dunes is the perfect spot for travellers who appreciate modern, well-appointed houses for their travels."

"We had high expectations for this property but when we arrived all of our expectations were exceeded! With 3 young kids, we had planned to do many of the usual "touristy" things that PEI had to offer. Once we arrived at the property, we cancelled most of what we had planned and spent most of our time on the beach!
We plan to come back again next year!"

"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!!!"

"My husband and I were looking for a quiet spot within minutes to the beach and attractions (golfing, restaurants etc.). This lovely cottage had everything we needed including lots of space for our border collie to run! There was an excellent information package provided and we loved the suggested 'dog friendly' beach! We actually found this location fairly central to many attractions but far enough away from all the 'touristy hubbub'. The golfing was phenomenal and there are many courses close-by to enjoy. Check out the Stanley Bridge Ceilidh featuring Leon Gallant (Tuesdays and Fridays) at the Hall. A wonderful two-week vacation!! Thank you Winfried!!"
