"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!!!!!"Guest: Dayle R.

"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"Guest: Lorene S. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 6, 2014View listing
"Owners Jeff and Miriam have thought of everything. Not only is this condo beautiful with a fantastic view, it is equipped with everything a visitor could possibly need. That includes all supplies and a completely operational internet connected workstation with printer and fax. The condo is laid out beautifully and appointed with superb style. The owners took the time to show us around the condo and explain how everything works. There is a binder in the living room full of attractions and restaurants. The location of the condo is perfect for two reasons. First, it is central to PEI for exploring the island in every direction. Secondly, the condo is right in the center of the best part of Charlottetown....it was so easy to walk to all the beautiful attractions and the best places to dine. Everything about staying at this condo was convenient. We hope to return to PEI again and hope we will find this condo available when we do."Guest: Steve 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.
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.

With plenty of bedroom space, TV sets, games and books, a vacation cottage offers a quiet and private retreat for evenings in.
