We are the Opps family. My husband and I are both professors at the University of Prince Edward Island. We have two children, Noah (11 years old) and Elijah (4 years old). Sheldon is originally from Toronto, Ontario. I was born in Lima (Peru), but grew up in Montreal (Quebec). At home, we speak English, French and Spanish. Our life goal is to have a balanced life for ourselves and our kids, so we value enormously the time that we spent together as family. We enjoy good food, travel and spend times with friends and family.
Marina Silva-Opps purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Marina Silva-Opps chose Annandale-Little Pond-Howe Bay
We have been living on PEI for more than 10 years, but purchased Casa del Sol only in 2013. Having said this, the previous owners of Casa del Sol were renting it for several years under the name 'Oceanfront cottage on Howe Bay, PEI'. We purchased Casa del Sol because we felt in love with it as soon as we saw the cottage. We are not certain if it was the decor, location or simply the amazing ocean view, but as soon as we saw the cottage, we knew that it was the right one for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
Casa del Sol is a 4 stars Canada Select property. It is an ideal place to rest and enjoy time with family and friends. Anytime of the year you can come and enjoy the breathtaking views, take wonderful walks or just simply relax in the tranquil surroundings. The views from the porch are outstanding, especially early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Cool down by going swimming on hot summer days, go beachcombing, try your hand at digging clams or canoe over to the sandbar when the tide is out and explore there, all right in front of the cottage . Walk for miles on two of the nicest beaches anywhere at Basin Head or on the north shore at Crowbush Cove. The Links at Crowbush, Dundarave and Brudenell River are three top-rated PGA golf courses and all are located within a 30 minute drive from the cottage.

Perfect cottage in gorgeous location -- highly recomend
This was our second time staying at Casa Del Sol. We came in September of 2015 and loved it so much that we planned our second trip for August of 2017. We would not have come back to PEI if we couldn't have stayed at the same cottage again! This time we had the addition of a 19 month old who loved it as much as we did! We had five total guests and everyone was very happy to be at Casa Del Sol.
The cottage is in the perfect location. We watched sunsets from the sandbar, we canoed, we kayaked, we took walks on the beautiful red sand. The private beach was perfect for our little one who loved walking in the water and exploring.
This trip we also explored many of the nearby beaches and loved every single one we went to!
Casa Del Sol is wonderful place and anyone who stays here is in for a treat!
Abigail, thank you so much for your beautiful comments. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed your second visit to Casa del Sol - you and your family are wonderful guests - very glad to know that your little one enjoyed the beach!
Have a wonderful rest of the year and hope to see you soon!
Marina and Sheldon
2ND VISIT! GREAT LOCATION ON THE ISLAND. HANDY TO EVERYTHING. WELL EQUIPPED. WILL RETURN.
WE'VE STAYED AT CASA DEL SOL BEFORE ... OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY 2 YEARS AGO ...17 PE0PLE (8 CHILDREN) BETWEEN 2 SUMMER HOMES. THIS TIME ... 5 OL' FOLKS SPENDING SOME QUALITY TIME FOR 2 WEEKS. AND WE WILL RETURN.
CHAROTTETOWN'S NOT SO CLOSE BUT WORTH THE TRIP JUST GETTING THERE ... NO MATTER THE ROUTE CHOSEN. LUPINS, DEEP SEA FISHING / NORTH LAKE, GOLF, TIDES, CLAMS, EAST END, LOBSTER SHACK, INN AT BAY FORTUNE, THE LOCAL COMMUNITY CENTRE, POTATOES GROWING, THE SOLITUDE (NAPPING, READING, WRITING), THE TEETER - TOTTER, ET AL. VERY WELL EQUIPPED BUT PREP KNIVES REQUIRE SOME ATTENTION.
SUGGEST DOING THE CHARLOTTETOWN STUFF BY ADDING ON A DAY OR 2 AT EITHER END. IF DRIVING ARRIVE VIA THE BRIDGE; DEPART VIA THE FERRY.
Wonderful cottage with beautiful surroundings. We highly recommend it.
It was our first time visiting PEI and we loved the cottage. It was well equipped, clean and big enough to accommodate all 7 members of our extended family (3 adults and 4 teenagers). And of course, having beautiful and relaxing Howe Bay right down the property's backyard was the icing on the cake.
We spend hours bathing on the sandy beach and searching for sea glass. We loved the experience. When we would chose to eat at the cottage we would make good use of the cottage's large gas BBQ to grill some steaks and hamburgers.
From it's location, it was easy to get around. We visited Charlottetown, Green Gables, the East Point and Souris Lighthouses, Greenwich National Park, Basin Head Beach with singing sands and several other places. And everytime, we were glad to return to Casa del Sol to have a good rest and to prepare for the next day. It was sad to say goodbye to the cottage and PEI, but we will remember our stay for a very long time.
Overall, it was an excellent vacation and we highly recommend Casa del Sol if you plan to visit PEI.
Thank you very much Ivan, Anita, Omar and kids. It was such a pleasure to have you as guests - you were simply wonderful. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time in Casa del Sol and PEI. We are glad to know that you want to come back next summer!
Have a wonderful rest of the summer.
Great experience ...highly recommend
We have visited PEI on a number of occasions and this vacation was our best experience to date...we spent most of June on the "Island" , the birthplace of Canada, which coincided this year to the celebration of our 150th anniversary of Confederation.
Our accommodation at Casa Del Sol was excellent..the amenities , scenery and tranquility were exceptional. Marina (owner) and (Anna ( property manager) went out of their way to make us feel at home and welcome.
During our 3 week stay we enjoyed many of the charms PEI is noted for...lots of premier golf courses, the red and the white sand beaches, fantastic culinary experiences (including
Michael Smith's famed Inn at Fortune Bay, New Glasgow lobster suppers) cycling, canoeing, live theatre, studying the fascinating history of different communities and just exploring (...put away your maps and GPS) .
Since returning home many friends have inquired about itinerary and the cottage....we would not hesitate to recommend our entire venue to them.
Ted L. (Thornhill, Ont)
Ted, thank you so much for posting such a wonderful review. It was a pleasure to have you as guests - you were friendly, respectful and super clean! Sheldon and I look forward to welcoming you back to your home-away-from home on your next visit to Prince Edward Island. Have a great summer!
Excellent Beautiful Place!
We absolutely loved this place. 5 friends and I had the most relaxing vacation I've every had. The house is right on a bay that when the tide goes out we could take the kayak and canie over to the sandbars and find lives snails, clams etc. the kitchen was fully stocked and we had everything we could have expected and more! The manager of the house even responded the same day about something regarding the house. Great response times for renting with the owners. Really recommend it!
We are so glad that you enjoyed our house. You were excellent guests and you took good care of our house. We wish you an amazing summer and hope you consider us again next time that you visit Prince Edward Island.

Fantastic cottage in an amazing location.
After spending a week at Case del Sol my wife and I agreed it was the best vacation we'd ever been on. The location was exactly what I had hoped, quiet, private and beautiful. We rarely saw neighbors, never heard distant traffic, and had an astonishing view of the ocean from the cottage.
Our toddlers were very happy with the toys and games, we didn't unpack any of our own toys at all. We were very appreciative of the included 'small things' that made the cottage feel like home.
It was a pleasure to have you and your family in Casa del Sol. It is so nice to hear that you enjoyed the house and all that it has to offer for adults and children. I am glad to hear that your children enjoyed the toys and games. We hope to see you guys again next time that you visit Prince Edward Island.
We are proud to say that PEI is one of the best golf destinations in Canada, if not the number one. In the area (15 minutes away from Casa del Sol), you will be able to do deep-Sea & lobster fishing, whale & seal watching (you can see them 70-90% of the time), diving & swimming with wild bluefin and shark fishing charters.
