The Dunes is ideally located close to shops, restaurants, leisure activities, beaches, mountain biking, kayaking, whale watching and deep sea fishing. Great casual and fine dining is only a short drive along the magnificent north shore. The nearby town of Kensington has shopping, service stations, a bank and a medical centre. There is a flea market, haunted mansion, miniature golf, museum and more. Watch the signs for a strawberry or ice cream social or a Ceilidh, island favourites. Of course, the Anne of Green Gables Museum and other Anne attractions are not far away. Some of the island’s most popular world-class golf courses are within a 20-30 minute drive.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I've always loved the water - I guess that's no surprise since I was born in a small town on Lake Huron, in Ontario. My best childhood memories are of time spent at the beach. I've lived in a number of places in Canada, including Alberta, British Columbia, and New Brunswick. While living in Dieppe, NB, I was fortunate enough to visit much of Atlantic Canada. I loved PEI so much that I bought The Dunes as my weekend getaway. Of course, it was simply referred to as "the cottage" at that time. In 2008, a job transfer to Toronto, where I currently live, left me with a decision to make regarding the cottage - keep it or sell it. I knew I just had to keep it and that's when I began renting it to summer guests and it officially became "The Dunes". The idea was to cover the cost of ownership while maintaining a place that I could still visit a couple of times a year. It was the right decision.
Why the Owner Chose Darnley, PE, Canada:
I looked at several different areas of the island before settling on Darnley Shores - there was something about being away from the main tourist areas that I liked. There was also that great beach on the North Shore that is just a short walk away. It reminded me of summers on Lake Huron. Since I was spending just about every weekend I could at the cottage, I outfitted it with the things that would make me comfortable while I was there. I had stayed at other cottages but they all seemed to be filled with the leftover items that were no longer needed, wanted or being used around peoples' houses - they seemed to be filled with things that were "good enough for the cottage". I wanted my place to literally be like a home away from home.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unlike a lot of rental cottages, you'll find that The Dunes is very well-appointed with finer touches - nicely decorated with quality window coverings and linens, nicer wine glasses, dinnerware and flatware, plenty of small appliances and quality full-size appliances. You'll also find great outdoor furniture and an over-sized grill on the deck. I hope that it feels like home for my guests or at least feels like the type of getaway they would put together for themselves.
