  • Wow!! What a great cottage!!!!!!!!!!!

    "I cant say enough great things about this cottage! The view was awesome and the beach was very easy to get to. We love the glass railing around the deck which we enjoyed pretty much every day except for 1 day of rain. The owners do not have any control of the weather so we expected at least 1 day of bad weather. We especially loved the lighting in the cottage as it was warm and comfortable. Beds and towels/sheets were awesome and we could not have asked for anything more. Would gladly book this vacation home again as it is well worth the rental fee. Restaurants were close by (as owner stated ) and there was nothing misleading on the cottage site. Our family highly recomends this cottage to anyone looking for a peacefull getaway with all the fixins."

  • Our family getaway

    "We came to PEI to celebrate a significant anniversary and thought how perfect it would be to have our family with us - and finding the right place was the highest priority on our list! From the moment we walked through the doors and could see the ocean to discovering the star filled sky's at night we knew this was exactly what we needed! Our daughters and their families were with us as well as my mom, and we had ample room for everyone. Lots of space to hang out with the group or just escape to have a nap. Having the area around us allowed the kids to play freely with their only boundary the stairs leading down to the ocean. The weather man did not want to cooperate this summer however nothing deterred us from doing - we hunted for shells, had a Bon fire on the rocks ( collected drift wood and there is a full supply of freshly cut wood) to cooking all the fresh seafood we could eat. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, candles for the chandeliers, rubber boots for the rainy days and amazing sunrises!!! The cottage reminded us of Muskoka which is a place that is very dear to our hearts and was both quaint and spacious. Definitely would come back!!!!!"

  • Perfect for our family!

    "What a find! My hubby and I were travelling with our five children aged 8,6,4,2, and 15 months. We were looking for a convenient home base from which to explore PEI. This beach house fit our family perfectly. It was great to come "home" to after a day on the road. Well stocked kitchen, loads of towels and an absolutely fantastic yard for the kids to play in. Swing set with slide, sandbox and tons of room to run were great bonuses for when the kids needed to blow off steam and I needed the space to cook a meal(which we did often and saved us quite a few dollars).We loved exploring the beach and the fence at the top of the stairs leading down to the beach made it safe for the kids. They loved checking to see if it was high or low tide. The view of Confederation Bridge from the beach is great. Mary was fantastic with accommodating our littlest one. High hair, pack n play, fans for white noise, baby gates for blocking off the stairs.....all provided and set up for our arrival. Mary knew we would be arriving after dark and had the house lit up like a Christmas tree for us which was greatly appreciated! The cottage and yard are meticulously maintained, but still comfortable enough that I wasn't worried the kids were going to wreck anything. We explored PEI from tip to tip. New Glasgow Lobster Supper, the butterfly house at PEI Preserve Co., Charlottetown Farmers Market, Cows Creamery Factory Tour, East Point Lighthouse, Basin Head Beach, deep sea fishing with Paradise on the Sea Adventures, purchasing moonshine at Myriad Distillery, North Cape, Bottle Houses, Spinnakers Landing, and a dairy farm tour were all highlights of our trip. Mix that up with some rest and relaxation at the cottage and you have one fabulous vacation. We are dairy farmers from Ontario my hubby doesn't really like to travel or leave the cows, but even he enjoyed this vacation largely due to being able to come home every night to this cottage. If you have been eyeing this place for awhile and have it marked as a favourite, just book it! You will not be disappointed by either the beach house or PEI! We have been recommending this property to anyone thinking of visiting. Cheers!"

South Shore (Charlotte's Shore) Travel Tips

Charlotte's Shore Vacation Rentals on Scenic Prince Edward Island

For a clean sea area and a mix of urban culture and scenic countryside, Prince Edward island is hard to beat. With small town centers, pretty ports, long beaches and cliffs for walking, and plenty of beautiful scenery, it is a great place to escape the rat race for a time. However, for those wanting to enjoy some activities, the area is ideal for golf, walking, beach combing and browsing small shops; there is even a winery to visit.

Things to Do from Charlotte's Shore Vacation Homes

A stroll along historic Great George Street at Charlotte's Shore is the best way to take in this lovely town. History comes to life before your eyes as the Founders Hall Confederation Players recreate their parts as costumed Fathers and Ladies of the Confederation around the town. Browse the shops on Queen Street and pick up a hand-made souvenir, or sit beneath the trees on Victoria Row and watch local life pass you by. It is a great place to unwind. It is also a fine place to eat out with a range of international cuisine provided by the town's restaurants, pubs and cafés. Festivals fill the local calendar and cover everything from music and theater to gaming and sport. Walk along the beaches or go clam digging with the locals. Take a boat trip to one of the nearby islands, enjoy bird spotting, or play a round of golf amidst some of Canada's best coastal scenery.

The Advantages of Booking Charlotte's Shore Cottages for Rent

Prince Edward Island conjures up pictures of walks along the beach, boat trips, biking along the quiet lanes, and steaming mugs of chocolate by the fireside. Renting a cottage in Charlotte's Shore gives visitors all the comforts of home and a well equipped base which is ideal for families, especially if the weather is showery. With plenty of bedroom space, TV sets, games and books, a vacation cottage offers a quiet and private retreat for evenings in. The fully equipped kitchens make mealtimes cheap and convenient, and food can be prepared to suit your own dietary requirement and tastes.

How to Get to Charlotte's Shore Vacation Rentals

Getting to Charlotte's Shore on Prince Edward Island is part of the vacation experience. Drive across Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick; at 13 kilometers long, it is one of the longest bridges in the world. Cross by car ferry using Northumberland ferries which take approximately 75 minutes or fly directly to Charlottetown from Halifax, Toronto, Ottawa, Boston or other major cities.

Places to Visit Around Charlotte's Shore Vacation Rentals

The Prince Edward Island National Park offers a great day out with its long beaches, warm waters and sand dunes which are home to many species of wildlife and birds. It is the home of "Anne of Green Gables." Downtown Charlottetown offers more cultural attractions, such as live theater performances, pavement cafés, gourmet dining, shopping and quiet parks.

Victoria is a charming Victorian Village where visitors can go sea kayaking, visit the lighthouse, and browse the artists' studios. The Saturday Farmers' Market has some great fresh produce, along with the popular Chocolate Factory!

The Best Time to Visit Charlotte's Shore Vacation Rentals

Prince Edward Island has something to offer visitors from spring through fall. The climate is surprisingly mild, due to the proximity to the warm Gulf of St. Lawrence bay waters. Summers have low humidity and sunny days can reach 90 F (32 C) in August. The cold winters rarely see temperatures rise above freezing with snow on the ground from November to April and some severe storms.
