About Danielle McConnell
Matthew grew up just 8 minutes from our property, and Danielle, in Charlottetown. Both Danielle and Matthew went to school in Ontario, and have been living and working in PEI since 2008. Danielle works as a nurse in a local hospital and Matthew farms on his family farm.
Danielle McConnell purchased this House in 2016
Why Danielle McConnell chose Kensington
We found this home in 2016, after years of looking for the perfect home. We knew after our first visit it was the home for us. Spacious but comfortable, newly renovated, but styled to match the original home, it had everything we wanted. Just a few minutes from Matt's family farm, and on a large mature property, in an area that Matt grew up in and Danielle has fallen in love with. This home is set back in the lush green fields and pastures of Darnley, yet just minutes away from PEI's finest white sand beaches.

This is the first vacation where I didn't look forward to getting back to my own house! The place was tranquil, spacious, and just beautiful. We felt at home from the moment we pulled in the driveway. When we entered the house the squeals of delight from my kids (and me!) spoke volumes about the first impression we had. It was our favourite place to be on the island! The beach down the road was also great. My family loved every minute on the island and in this house. Danielle was also helpful and informative and made sure that the house had everything we could possibly need and quickly answered any questions we had.
When we come back to the island there is no other place we will be able to stay that will live up to our expectations after staying here.
Our comfortable blue farmhouse by the sea.
We loved this property from the minute we drove in the driveway. Each morning we enjoyed coffee on both the front and back porch. The six of us never slept better thanks to the comfortable beds, the clean PEI air and the ocean breezes that flow through the windows and night. Our 17 and 11 year old spent hours scootering on the paved driveway. We took turns lying on the hammock under the trees and enjoyed the flowers and landscaping on the property. The short drive was fun on the red dirt road with beautiful views of the ocean. One of our best vacations. We hope to return.
Peaceful, great location!
Fantastic home, well equipped with anything you’d need. Central location was very convenient for site seeing day trips. Lovely quiet beach minutes away. Highly recommend!
Lovely county home!
We had an enjoyable time at this country Island home. They kids had a great time in the huge backyard playing soccer and catch. The beach is only a 3 minute drive. The kitchen was well stocked and maintained. The owners were lovely and accommodating! I would definitely return.
Peaceful getaway with lots of room for everyone
We had a lovely stay with another family. The surrounding area is beautiful, within easy driving distance of Cavendish, Malpeque, Cabot Beach, Stanley Bridge, Rustico and other attractions and the sandy red beach just down the road was virtually deserted. The house is charmingly rustic with all the modern updates you need. We enjoyed the small fire pit with the kids at the end of the day as well. This was our first time staying in this area and would definitely return.
My husband and I booked Danielle and Matthew's lovely home for our wedding which took place on PEI. The house is amazing. Matthew and Danielle had a bottle of champagne and two glasses ready for our arrival. The house is a beautiful, rustic farmhouse with the perfect amount of modern. It is HUGE - which allowed all of my bridesmaids and I to have our own bed prior to the wedding. Everyone commented how comfortable their beds. The day of the wedding, while the girls and I got ready, the photographer kept going on and on how he couldn't believe how amazing the house was. I personally can't wait for the photos that were taken of me putting on my dress in the beautiful master bedroom. The house truly did act as the perfect backdrop to every photo. The rest of our week was a dream. The house is super close to great beaches and it has a huge yard. Matthew and Danielle even offered to bring us fresh veggies from their garden. Would DEFINITELY stay there again.
