  • 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!"

  • oh, what place to spend a holiday!

    "the first thing that draws you in are the pictures here on this website, which by the way, do not do the place justice. the owners are lovely, helpful people. there were 4 people in our party and when we walked in we could see it would not feel confining. small looking on the outside, but once you walk in it felt very spacious. the interior decor was perfect. and what can be said about the awesomely large deck with the hammock. stress free holidaying at its best. we rented for 2 weeks and it went by so fast. the cottage was private but you did not feel alone. then there is the view to describe, which by the way is almost to hard. walking along the shoreline, the sunrise and sunset, the lane to the highway for strolling...there are no words that can convey just how beautiful that whole area is. the drive to summmerside was quick and easy. the first day we went in for supplies and on the return we got a little lost in the dark, but a lovely lady who worked in a corner store not far from the cottage got us straightened out. after that we had absolutely no problems. a very nicely central place to get from one side of the island to the other. i would totally and happily re-rent the cottage again."

  • Great home in a great location

    "We had a great 3 generation family vacation. The house is right on the tidal beach. We gathered our own clams, mussels and oysters - can't get any fresher than that. The house was very well equiped; comfortably rooms, full kitchen and laudry facilities. We used the barbeque, bicycles and kites. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!"

  • Truly an Island Gem!

    "Our party of six recently returned to Northern Ontario after a one week stay at Fairfield House and we are already talking about returning again with a larger group! To say that our stay in this beautiful oceanfront century home was magical would be an understatement. In fact, I would easily attribute such glowing accolades at the risk of sounding over romantic, but with good reason. This home is spacious, bright, functional, beautifully appointed, private, updated, clean and happily situated on the scenic Augustine Cove. Although a historic house, it has new bathrooms and a very well stocked kitchen. There is also a spacious room with new laundry facilities and a walk-in ironing room. There are two living rooms with very comfortable sofas and chairs and a large sunroom that stretches across the front of the home facing the ocean. The outside deck is also large and well appointed with good quality adirondack chairs. There are added touches to the home such as two pairs of binoculars, tons of beach towels, books, tourist guides, magazines, jigsaw puzzles, games and a plethora of "Anne of Green Gables" material including a full set of the books. The bedrooms have amble closet space and the mattresses and linens are top quality. Although the home is furnished in a nice mix of antiques and modern furniture, you never get the feeling that the items are "hands off" and we felt right at home as soon as we walked in the door. The home is centrally located and easy to find. The drive to either Charlottetown or Summerside was easy and all the other attractions that PEI has to offer. As we are from Northern Ontario, driving any distance for dinner, groceries etc... is the norm, so we planned for supply pick-up in conjunction with our outings and did not find the private cove in any way isolated. Secluded and private yes, but not isolated with Charlottetown and Summerside less than one hour away. All our inquiries were handled in a very timely manner by Alan and Sue Manning and questions while we were at the house usually answered within the hour. The welcome package that was mailed prior to the visit was also very helpful in planning our trip to PEI and the gift of PEI jams and tea upon our arrival was a very nice touch. Do not hesitate to rent this historic home if you have a group from 6-10 as the ocean view, spaciousness, surroundings and appointments of this house cannot be overstated. Five star all the way"
