Property description

Here is the perfect family getaway perched on the red sand banks of rural Augustine Cove where the water is warm and the natural beauty is breath taking.
The light filled rooms of this spacious open concept summer home feature expansive windows on both the main and upper floors overlooking the sand and water. A fine collection of Canadian antique pine furniture gives a classic coziness to this cottage and an example of what might be found in shops on the island.
Sleeps up to 14, in 2 bedrooms with queen sized beds, one room with a double and 2 bunks, and a cheery bunk room with 4 single bunks. Two additional single beds are nestled under the dormer windows of the upper floor. Beautiful linens are provided in all.
There is a full bath and shower on the upper floor bathroom and a 3 piece bath with a shower on the main. Wash off the sand and salt in the outdoor deck shower after an afternoon on the beach.
The open concept kitchen looks out past the living and dining area to the water. It is fully equipped and large enough for two cooks to practice their skills on the abundant local seafood. Lounge in the living area looking out to the ocean and enjoy the music library or your own collection on the iPod dock or CD changer. If the evening is cool enhance the cottage atmosphere with a fire in the wood burning island stone fireplace. The antique pine table in front of it will seat 10 comfortably.
There is an expansive wrap around deck that allows you to follow the sun throughout the day for lunches at the picnic table or drinks in the colourful Adirondack chairs. There are more on the point deck perched on the bank above the beach and there are two large sun umbrellas and plenty of fluffy beach towels. Head down the beach stairs to stroll for miles when the tide is out on the red sand or swim in the warmest waters on the island, or take the whole gang for a kayak on the cove in the 6 kayaks in our shed. Life jackets are provided. 4 hybrid mountain bikes are also available for a ride around the cove road or into one the most charming villages on the island, Victoria by the Sea, where you can find excellent local home cooked food at the Landmark cafe before an evening play or concert at the Victoria playhouse. Also enjoy ice-cream, homemade chocolates, a fishing wharf, and antiques.
The farm road that circles the field behind the cottage is an excellent quiet place to walk or get a run in.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I live in the foothills of southern Alberta but have a great love for this very unique place on the water where my children spent their summers. We have a strong bond with the community at the cove and feel so pleased when our island friends inquire about when we're coming 'home'.

Why the Owner Chose Borden-Carleton, PE, Canada:
We discovered the Cove when good friends invited us for dinner one summer that we were staying on the North Shore of PEI. We had a great dinner and decided we should stay. We bought the property that fall and completed the cottage the following spring. It was love at first sight. The shining water and sparkling sand, the bird calls and general peace of this gorgeous natural area had us hooked.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This has been an exceptional family place for both our family and our friends. We never tire of the view across our lawn! The cottage is large enough to give everyone the privacy they might need, or the fun of a game of scrabble or a lobster cook up on the deck with the gang. It has provided us with a gorgeous, peaceful place to share time with the people we love to hang out with.
