Why Norah Gormley. chose Prince Edward Island

My sister and i bought this lot because of the name of the location,White Sands and the beautiful view. We grew up in Ireland in a little community looking out over the sea called Thallabawn Gaelic for white sands. The sand here is a little more red but we love it just as much.

The best location on the best vacation we've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to say how much we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Atlantic Escape. The location is as good as it gets with breathtaking views of the beautiful bay. The cottage is so warm, inviting and cozy and is a perfect place for "escaping" the rat race that is life. Norah ensures that it is clean, well maintained and has all the ammeneties you will need to enjoy your stay. Me and my wife found ourselves out on the adirondack chairs reading in the comfortable ocean air almost every day we were there. we also took advantage of the gas grill and cooked in one dinner! I can't say enough good things about Norah's place only that we fell in love with her cottage and the island itself and we certainly be frequent yearly guests at this oasis on PEI! We are looking forward to returning again next year!

Cute house, gorgeous location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 3 days in October 2016, and loved it! The house isn't fancy, but it was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed! One day we bought a couple live lobsters to cook, and there was even a large pot in the storage shed for us to use!

The location is perfect, only down the road from the ferry. The views from the house are outstanding! It was a bit too cool to spend much time on the deck, but even sitting in the kitchen or living room was lovely because of the big windows.

the house was very toddler friendly. Norah provided us with a high chair, which was great! She also brought over a couple toys which my son loved!

Norah was a great host! She came by the first day to make sure we had everything we needed, and was easily contacted by phone.

We would definitely stay here again if we came back to PEI!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had he pleasure of renting this beautiful cottage with a fantastic view of the ocean. Norah's hospitality ensured our stay was both comfortable and peaceful. We could tell she took pride in her property and she was available if needed but respectful of our privacy. We enjoyed breakfast in. Murray Habour, a short drive away and exploring the countryside.

We love tnis home away from home, we can't wait to return. Wishing Norah and family luck with their new property and hope to stay again soon.

Great 10 days in June

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great time. The cottage is very clean and comfortable, and in a very quiet area. We loved the peace and quiet. We spent a lot of time walking the beach, collecting loads of sea glass, making bonfires, picnics and so on. Our favorite morning ritual was waking up a=early, without knowing what time it was, and sitting on those two chairs staring at the sea, with the rising sun warming our sleepy bodies.

Nora was very kind and helpful from the start to the finish. The Cheeky Monkey was a very nice and appreciated gesture, as well as the eggs from the farm up the road. I even asked for a shovel to make some stairs to go straight to the beach without having to walk around, and it worked quite well. I hope other following visitors got to use it too.

We bought lobster twice, once at the ferry and the other time at a shop in Murray Bay. We needed a huge pot to cook these suckers and Nora was again fast to provide one for us. We also had very nice drives around the area, including Georgetown, Montague, Panmure island and so on. Good food also at Brehaut's, very decent prices.

We also took the ferry to NS and visited Truro, New Glasgow and Parrsboro. The bay of Fundy was great at low tide. It was a fun day excursion. Many thanks again, Nora. A great for all. I hope you found you're cell phone cable! :-)

How Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our week in PEI and were lucky enough to have gotten the best week of weather this summer! The cottage is bigger than the pictures make it seem and had more than enough room for 2 couples and 2 small dogs. We spent a lot of our time with our chairs pulled up to the edge of the grass just looking out at the sea and watching the seals and diving fish. There was everything we needed to enjoy a week away including bikes, boats, sun umbrella, and so much more. The cottage is treated like a hotel and you arrive to a spotless home with towels, coffee, soaps, and anything else you might need. Norah even stopped by and gave us some homemade jam to have on our toast!

We purchased eggs from the farm up the drive, cooked the fish we caught our selves in the ocean, explored the tide pools on low tide, found hermit crabs and picked them up. I cannot wait to get back to the ocean!

A few tips would be to go swimming in Murray River at the King's Castle Provincial Park. The ocean is way too cold to enjoy for us Ontario folk but the river was perfect...and empty! It was still salt water and had all the same crabs to catch and release. The Point Prim Chowder house was to DIE for. GO THERE! There is also a Jeweler based out of Georgetown that has amazing sea glass and silver designs that you can get and explore the ocean front shop. Worth the trip!

Relaxing and Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, the cottage was meticulous in terms of cleanliness & neatness. You can tell this cottage is given attention & has all the amenities of home! More than what we expected. Nora is a gracious host & has thought of anything & everything a family may require when vacationing in PEI. Full size fridge, stove, dishwasher and even a washer & dryer. Full size tub/shower. Queen bed in master bedroom and two beds (one twin & a double) in other bedroom, worked perfect for our family of four. Good size living room that opened into an eat-in kitchen. Large windows plus patio doors with great views of the Northumberland Strait. Large deck with ample outside furniture (BBQ too) to enjoy the views as well. The ocean provided much entertainment as we saw many seals bobbing in the water & gannets diving for fish. When we had a question Nora was always available and willing to help in anyway. We really enjoyed our stay at this quiet, very peaceful and private views of the beach and the Strait.

Few points of interest:

* We really enjoyed Panting Shore Beach (About 10 minutes from the cottage, turn left out of the driveway on your way back to Wood Islands Ferry). Great sandy beach, very shallow, lots of sandbars & calm waters especially in low tides. Great for children. If you are lucky, look to the far left of the point, you may see seals sunbathing.

* Brehauts in Murray Harbour, only 5 minutes from the cottage, turn right out of the driveway. Awesome milkshakes & ice cream treats. Very reasonably priced. We also had a meal there, great prices, very good home made chowder, but was disappointed the fish was previously frozen and not local (from NS).

* Montague: About 25 minutes away, Famous Peppers Pizza, excellent pizza (we had the maple chicken pizza) & really good garlic fingers. Also, the Montague Bakery is a must stop!

* GOLF: Brudenell is an excellent course to be played & Belfast Highland Greens was a surprisingly little treat too. If you have the time, you should also play Dundarave, a long, challenging & fun course.

* GEORGETOWN: 1.The Kings Playhouse Dinner Theatre. Food was pretty good and the entertainment was terrific. 2.Great coffee at Maroon Pig. 3.Very good fish dinners at Clam Diggers.

* POINT PRIM Chowder House. Lobster Roll and Chowders were some of the best we ever had. Very fresh and a lot of seafood. Well worth the drive.
