"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."Guest: Aiden and Marissa J.

"We arrived for a weeks family vacation and were completely blown away with what we stumbled upon - the most inviting, warm and comforting accommodations!! We were greeted with fresh baked muffins & cookies, a fridge stocked with cream, milk, peanut butter, jam, bagels and spread to get us going for the next morning. On top of that, beer and a bottle of wine were there to help us wind down from a day of travel - absolutely amazing!!! When we had a chance to meet our lovely host it was like meeting family, we truly felt like the home was ours! I am so happy my Mom was paying attention to the features of the home as explained by our host such as the beautiful outdoor space with torches and fire pit because I was too excited to pay attention!! There is a beautiful deck area to enjoy as well as a BBQ for outdoor cooking. The kitchen is user friendly with enough dishes, cutlery, glassware and cooking utensils to prepare and serve meals. The house is well decorated both inside and out. The lower level has a great TV room which we enjoyed most evenings with plenty of seating for all. There was a great selection of DVD's and books to read. The house is well equipped with EVERYTHING that you would need to enjoy your vacation from bath towels, beach towels, toys and umbrella you really just need to pack clothes. There is a washer and dryer with soap supplied so no need to overpack (which means you can spend some money at the cool shops downtown picking up gifts and souvenirs) to fill your suitcase for the trip home!! We truly loved the house and have already started planning our return trip next summer! We would highly recommend this rental due to all the comforts of home and the warm welcome we received. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful home away from home!! As a side note - we would recommend a drive to Covehead to enjoy a lobster roll and/or fish & chips at Richard's...in fact we would recommend a few trips because it is just that good :)"Guest: Kim K.

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.
