Our Favourite Getaway
This is our third year in a row staying at Pam and Allan's wonderful home. It is so hard for us to get away throughout the year, so we are always so excited to get back to the island. Walking through the doors each year is like taking a breath. Pam and Allan are gracious host, the amenities are wonderful and there's nothing quite like feeling at home while away. The pool and hot tub are always the highlights for us. We've already booked for next year :)
Second time, another wonderful visit
We stayed at Pam and Allen's house last summer and loved it...we got the chance to go back again this summer and once again we loved every minute of it. The kids were sad to leave and so were we. It was so lovely going to a place we loved and having it be as we remembered. We're already thinking of next year! They could not be more gracious hosts either. Highly recommend to anyone looking foran escape.
The Perfect Getaway
We had a wonderful family vacation during our stay in August of 2016. The home easily accommodated our family of 4, as well as 2 other families of 3. It was the perfect spot for little ones to have fun. The pool was very clean and the yard had lots of room for running around and exploring.
In addition, the location was excellent - very close to the city center, but in a country-like setting. An easy 15 minute drive to the beach, made for some fun afternoons spent playing in the waves. The hot tub and exercise room were a great bonus for the adults.
Our host (Pam) was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We loved our stay so much that 2 days into our 2016 vacation, we booked it again for 2017!
This place is simply amazing. VRBO is full of nice large houses. This is certainly one of them. But what makes it outstanding is the attention to detail. The small things. Everything you need for your holiday is here - somewhere in the cupboards! We've had lots of great family holidays in lots of fun places, but this was our favourite rental property. And the owners were a pleasure to deal with.
We had booked this home for a family vacation 8 months in advance as it looked like a perfect vacation property for multiple families and kids. We had people fly in and rented cars. We had contacted the owners several times prior to our stay including a couple weeks before and they advised everything was fine and the details on how to get the home. Once we got to PEI we called the owner and they had no idea who we were. They called back and discovered that they had double booked the home. They were able to find us some condo's to stay in but unfortunately we were not looking to for a family vacation where we were all in different buildings and a pool was not even in walking distance with small children. They did apologize numerous times for the inconvenience and offer some free golf at the local course. We were disappointed as we understand mistakes do happen but the only time we say the owner was when they came to pick up the cheque. I think they could have at the least came and apologized to our group in person as this was an expansive trip that was ruined by in error on there part. We go to PEI every other summer, this is the first time we decided to rent a home, but if we ever decide to rent a home again it will not be with these owners. As mentioned errors do happen but it would have been nice for the owner to come out and apologize in person.
As the homeowners, we take full responsibility for the unfortunate issue with Mr. Gunn's booking; he and his group were indeed booked at our rental property and after speaking to him while he was en route from Moncton we realized that there was a conflict in our booking dates. Understanding the gravity of the situation and that it was our responsibility, we quickly booked them into three, 2-bedroom condos at a five-star golf resort in a prime tourist area. The fact that these condos are actually double the cost of our rental home didn’t bother us at all as we knew that we had to do whatever we could to help our guests out of this difficult situation and would therefore absorb the loss without question.
When we informed Mr Gunn about the alternate location, he only asked if there was a barbeque and full kitchen and sounded pleased upon his arrival. This resort features a heated pool, hospitality centre, and a fitness centre. We also gave them passes to be used at the premier golf course. However, we realize that this is not the location they had booked and looked forward to and the mistake was our own. We apologized profusely several times on the phone; upon their arrival late Sunday and again on Monday, Tuesday, and texted him Thursday to advise them on impending heavy traffic. When my husband went over to pick up the payment he again apologized to Mr. Gunn in person, who then said that everything was great and they had enjoyed the golfing and so my husband offered him more passes for the next day.
We are very conscientious homeowners and have been renting our properties for many years and we love seeing large families come to PEI and enjoy their time here. Unfortunately, mistakes do happen and we feel we did everything within our power to rectify the situation. If Mr Gunn had expressed the same feelings to us directly when we spoke with him during his stay rather than on this form perhaps we could have done even more to make their stay more enjoyable. While we completely accept a bad review based on the booking date error as it negatively impacted Mr Gunn’s and his family’s time on the Island, we do feel it unfair to be depicted as uncaring and indifferent homeowners. In the end, all we can say is we tried to make the best of an unfortunate situation and we will certainly be doing everything within our power to ensure that another mistake like this never happens again.
Wonderful space for a larger family and great location
We spent a glorious week here with our five children of various ages and it was the perfect home base while we went exploring but we ended up spending a lot of time just vegging in the pool and hot tub because it was so nice. Pam was awesome and so very helpful with everything. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!
