About Barbara Heller

I live in New York City. My mother was born in PEI.

Each summer my family and I like to return to PEI to the peaceful, tranquil island with its friendly people and beautiful countryside, beaches, water views, gorgeous sunsets and dazzling star gazing. The people are so friendly and it is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy nature.

Barbara Heller purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Barbara Heller chose Rollo Bay

We purchased this property and built this home to be near family and to enjoy wonderful PEI. Renting out Evangeline Cottage is an opportunity to share this beautiful place with others. We are only able to make use of our cottage for part of the summer due to other obligations.

What makes this cottage unique

My husband and I bought this property from a farmer over 30 years ago. All of PEI is beautiful, and this property is a gem! PEI is the birthplace of author Lucille Maude Montgomery, who wrote Anne of Green Gables. One of the quotes from the book is that PEI is the island of sapphires (sky) emeralds (green farm land) and rubies (the earth is red clay).

Evangeline cottage was quiet, clean, private and all we could have hoped for as a base of operations for exploring PEI East. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend.

Secluded comfort

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us. We were looking for a quiet home base for day trips across Prince Edward Island. The cottage was comfy, clean, felt like home and we enjoyed waking up to the sound of waves and trees without traffic or neighbours in earshot.

Absolutely stunning!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly what we were hoping it would be. It was extremely cozy and tucked away from everyone else. The view was stunning. The owners went above and beyond. We had everything we needed and then some.

If you don't mind driving this would be the perfect location for you. Souris is a short drive away and they have everything you need banks, grocery stores, cute shops. Highly recommend The Lobster Shack for take away meals and Lot 45 is a yummy restaurant. If you're looking for a great burger Holy Cow is the place to go. This is a must, but leave some space for ice cream next door. Another must is a church dinner in New Glasgow or a yummy bite at Richards. Anne Shirley's house is a must. Make sure to watch the movie before going. Barbara has it available at the cottage.

Thank you to Barbar and Arthur for sharing your lovely cottage. We look forward to returning soon.

Very well kept and clean cottage. Great for the whole family and perfect for those with young children as there is lots of room for them to run without worry of being too close to the water :-) Private, relaxing, beautiful, breathtaking and amazing cottage close to the most stunning beaches in the area! HIGHLY recommend this spot!!! Owners are very accommodating, pleasant and extremely helpful with any inquires regarding the surrounding area and the Island. If you are planning a visit to the Island and want a nice relaxing/private home away from home this is the spot to go!!! Thank you for a wonderful week!!! Not to forget, the seals are close by when the tide is out :)

Cottage is modern and well appointed. Clean as a whistle when we arrived. Decorated in old family photos with a nice selection of movies, books, children's toys. Close to Souris for supplies , restaurants. Good selection if seafood available in grocery stores and wholesale fish market whether on beach of souris or just past town. Close to Basin head beach ( which is amazing ) this is a must stop for any age group! Great place to relax and recharge . Excellent clam digging and beach combing at your door step . Right across from distillery ( adult beverages)

Lovely PEI cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is located on the water in a quiet location. The property is close to the town of Souris, which has a visitor center with free wifi, grocery stores, restaurants, and other necessities. The house was very clean, and the kitchen is well-stocked with all of the dishes and equipment needed for a vacation. The owners were very helpful with trip planning and easy to work with. We highly recommend this property!

Enchanting two bedroom cottage with screened-in porch and large deck. Ramp for accessibility. Quiet cottage nestled in the woods in a wildlife sanctuary location. Less than ten minutes to shopping and restaurants in Souris. Ten - twenty minutes to the attractions of beaches, golf, and the Greenwich Dunes. A quiet retreat away from the modern world and an opportunity to commune with nature.
