Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Cory and Family for all your PEI hospitality! We had the most wonderful and relaxing stay at your rental. As a party of 6, (that's 4 kids) and 2 adults we needed a property big enough to fit all of us! We were thrilled when we arrived. Every last detail was thought of and the property exceeded what the pictures looked like! We made great use of the Provincial Park pass that Cory included in the property. This allowed us to go to several nearby beaches such as Brackley Beach, Basin Head, Cavendish and Argyle National Park. The beaches were great for kids. We were very impressed with the Brackley Beach which was about a 5 min drive and the kids favourite! Lots of smooth sand and plenty of room for all of us as the beach went as far as we could see. We took advantage with some sunset photos and took our kite there to fly. We highly recommend to anyone to rent this property as Cory is easy to get a hold of and helped us with all our questions. He is a wonderful host! Thanks again for a very special vacation. Adam, Lori, and the kids (Justin, Amy, Emily and Jennifer).

Great Place For Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

It was our 50th Anniversary so we wanted to get the family together to help us celebrate. PEI seemed a suitable location and after much searching Cory's House seemed an ideal spot to stay. We were not disappointed by either selection. 3 couples,1 adult and 4 infants to near teens enjoyed a wonderful week of sunshine in a great Holiday Home.

The house is perfect for a family get together like ours with sleeping for 10 that we supplemented with a hard-top camper. The size, layout and decor were wonderful with loads of room to sit comfortably inside and outside together with large tables for eating together (although the kids enjoyed eating at the bar in the kitchen area). The kitchen had every appliance you could wish for and the washer and dryer were put to extensive use.

The kayaks received extensive use and there are bikes, balls and other gear for entertainment. The hot-tub was used by just about everyone and was greatly appreciated.

The only real problem were the mosquitoes, we were told by many that this has been the worst year ever for them and we can vouch for that so take plenty of bug spray. A couple of other small problems we encountered were quickly fixed by Cory who is a great and relaxed host. Problems were due to problems that occurred over winter and could not be seen until someone used the house.

While somewhat remote, the house is a maximum of 20 minutes from stores and restaurants and 5 minutes from beaches.

In summary, anyone selecting this house for their vacation is in for a great time. The house is just perfect for a large family or multiple couples to vacation. Proof of its popularity was the fact that everyone said on leaving, including the young boys, "can we do this again another year?"

Thanks Cory.

We had a wonderful time at this vacation home! We have never rented before and we were nervous but Cory is such a nice guy and so easy to work with!

The house is better then the pictures! Spacious, comfortable....immediately felt like home. We loved the wood burning fireplace on chilly September nights, and the hot tub was used multiple times per day!

The house has a washer and dryer too, which is so helpful. The view is lovely, and you are so close to the beach to walk and look for shells. Or a 5 minute drive to Brackley beach which is gorgeous too. You can also walk to McMillan point which has big houses and a nice view too!

Also, because it is so quiet you see lots of beautiful birds - seems like there is even a resident bald eagle here that we saw several times!

This home very comfortably fit 4 adults and 1 child. Everything is close by - great location.

All in all, we can't imagine how different the experience of PEI would have been if we had stayed in a hotel. it would not have compared! We will be coming back for sure!!

A Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to take the family! P.E.I. is a real gem during the summer, and though this house is a bit removed from some of the major attractions, nothing is that far away. And sometimes that's exactly what you are looking for. It was for us! Plenty of peace and quiet. Ahh...

Within minutes of the house are a wonderful summer concert series (at Brackley Beach), fishing and water sports opportunities, great lobster suppers, homemade ice cream, and many beaches to pass the time.

But there was so much that we were able to do without leaving the neighborhood, from kayaking to the hot tub to great living spaces for card games, this property is well-maintained and the owner is very easy to deal with. Only one word of caution...the area is a bit "quiet" in the evening. If you need, groceries, whatever, get them before 9:00 PM or you're probably out of luck until the next day! We figured that out early on.

Un paradis à l'île

  • 5 of 5

J'en suis à mon deuxième séjour, et je reviens encore chez nous avec le coeur gros de laisser derrière moi cet endroit de rêve. J'ai séjourné dans cette maison avec 8 amis pour le long week-end. La location, les facilités,le décor, la tranquilité, le confort, les kayacs, les bicyclettes, et je me dois d'arrêter car la liste serait longue. Si vous désirez bien dormir dans des lits de luxe, vous avez trouvé le lieu idéal. Tout est de qualité supérieur. Et je ne pourrais terminer sans parler de Cory : une personne exceptionnelle qui ne sait plus quoi faire pour rendre votre séjour inoubliable.Merci Cory!! De la gang de Caraquet.

Amazing house & best central location! A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed June 20-27 2009 at the Covehead Luxury Beach House. First of all, you have to see this place in person in order to appreciate its true is absolutely beautiful. You really notice all the fine quality materials and workmanship that went into building this house. There are THE MOST comfortable beds that you just sink into and drift off to sleep, after long days at the beach. The bedding is so amazing and the views from the bedroom balconies are stunning. We loved sleeping with the patio door opened....gusty, summer breezes and distant rolling waves lulled us to sleep night after night. Covehead cottage is fully-equipped with everything and anything you could ever need during your stay. The big, new hot-tub was amazing for quiet, cocktail nights after long days of sightseeing and shopping. The perfect end to perfect days in P.E.I. Centrally located between Charlottetown and Cavendish (20 mins. to either) made it the most perfect and peaceful out-of-town location, but still a short drive to all the area has to offer. Short drives to incredible beaches, dining, activities & adventure. We really enjoyed going to nearby Cavendish & Brackley beaches to search for seashells and watch the sunsets. The owner, Cory was more than helpful in anyway including making sure the house was fully stocked and all was in order. You couldn't ask to deal with a better person! Although the weather wasn't on our side for part of our stay, there were plenty of indoor activities in Cavendish and even just hanging out at the house was fun. Even though we were 7, we never felt crowded because the place is so big. With all the space and beauty this beach house has to offer, you could never be disappointed with your stay. We hope to return again next year. Awesome memories!! Thanks, Shoshanna
