Cavendish Vacation Cottage...Relaxation, Comfort and Convenience
Cavendish Vacation Cottage, which borders directly on PEI National Park, was custom-built in 2014 by the owners for guest and personal use in 2014.
Cavendish Beach Tourist Area
This luxury ocean-view cottage is located in the heart of the popular Cavendish Tourist Area, and is very close to restaurants and shops as well as many popular attractions including Anne of Green Gables and the world famous Cavendish Beach!
And just down the road - a short drive or scenic bike ride along the Gulf Ocean Parkway - is popular and picturesque North Rustico Harbour, which boasts an active fishing harbour, fine dining, family restaurants, gifts shops, fresh fish and seafood shops, a bank and a liquor and beer store.
Authentic PEI Experience
The cottage, which sleeps eight - and is wheelchair accessible on the main floor - boasts more than 1600+ square feet of living space with three bedrooms and one and a half baths.
Guests will find the unique décor including an authentic 8’ fishing dory hanging from the ceiling in the loft area and lobster traps (that were used by local fishermen), which have been re-purposed for use as kitchen pot racks!
Moreover, the interior will give guests a definite 'PEI Feel' with artwork depicting indigenous wildlife such as foxes (which love to play out in the open on the south end of PEI National Park, much to the delight of visitors), eagles and waterfowl.
In the spacious and bright gourmet kitchen, guests, who wish to cook, will find an abundance of custom maple cabinetry, quartz counter tops, four stainless steel GE appliances, a full compliment of small appliances by Kitchen Aid and Cuisinart (including an ice cream maker and espresso maker), and a wide selection of PEI’s own Paderno pots, including a 16 L stock pot large enough for an old fashioned lobster boil. Guests will enjoy dining at an informal oversized custom kitchen island that seats 6 in an open concept kitchen/living room area. And just outside the front door, for the gourmet chef, is two large planters filled with various kitchen herbs.
At the same time, guests who chose to dine out will be pleased to know that there is an abundance of nearby fine-dinning, family restaurants and snack-bars (including one popular snack bar that is close enough for children, who seek a bit of independence, to walk to on their own while within full sight of their parents relaxing on the cottage deck), including several within walking distance such as Rachel's Ristorante, which has excellent eat-in and take-out meals.
High-End Finishes and the Latest Technology
High-end finishes include Natuzzi leather furniture, finished in a colour reminiscent of roasted red peppers, a built in stereo surround sound system, two very quiet high capacity remote control Fujitsu air conditioning systems, air exchanger, WiFi Internet, telephone (with free calling across Canada and the US) and Eastlink HD cable TV service on all five TVs.
Focal Point of Main Living Area
The focal point of the main living area is a gas fireplace, which adds a touch of romance and warmth on the occasional chilly, but refreshing, maritime evening. Over the fireplace, in a custom built cabinet, is an LG 60" Smart TV that is Netflix compatible, Yamaha 5.1 audio system, LG DVD and CD players and five built-in Polk surround sound stereo speakers, including a center channel speaker and sub-woofer, which will surely please even the most discerning audiophile. And for ease of operation, all the electronics are controllable by one easy to use Harmony remote!
What's more, guests can choose from an eclectic collection of classic and recently released CDs and DVDs, including a large selection of children's movies.
Stunning Sunsets and Views of the Atlantic Ocean
Overlooking the living area is a spacious loft designed for comfort with a sofa bed, two leather Natuzzi chairs that recline, swivel and rock, and a 32” LG TV, not to mention a stunning west-facing view of the Atlantic Ocean and PEI National Park ... a great place to start the day with a morning coffee or just relax and watch the sunset.
Cavendish Vacation Cottage Library
The cottage also boasts its own small library with many carefully chosen titles including classic PEI works by Lucy Maud Montgomery, and a number of other newly published books, many of which are in the Globe and Mail and New York Times Best Seller Lists that are sure to have wide appeal.
Luxury Beds and Fine Linens
And speaking of relaxing, the master bedroom has a Serta iSeries Comfort king size bed with soft and comfortable high thread count sheets, two-night tables, reading lamps, a large dresser, a wall mounted flat screen TV, perfect for watching from bed, and a spacious closet.
The upstairs bedrooms also have Serta iSeries mattresses, with a queen size bed in one and two twin beds in the other.
Each bedroom is spacious with large closets, luxury pillows, silk duvets, for optimal summer comfort, and high-end linens. Also included in each bedroom is flat screen a TV and ceiling fan. And for full privacy, each window in the cottage has custom-made wooden vertical blinds.
Infant and Child-Friendly
For guests with young children, the south-east facing second-floor bedroom also has a comfortable leather chair that rocks, reclines and swivels and soft warm throw that is ideal for rocking an infant or toddler to sleep after a long fun-filled day at the beach in comfort. What's more, there is a small collection of board games and children's books.
One and a Half Baths
On the main level is a large master 4 piece bath, fully equipped with GE front load washer and dryer, mounted on pedestals for added convenience, and a separate laundry sink. The second floor has a nicely appointed 2-piece bath with custom built cabinetry. There is also an abundance of soft cotton bath towels and a separate set of eight beach towels!
Large Outdoor Room
Moreover, the owners of the cottage have not overlooked guests' outdoor experience by including a large over-sized 600 square foot wrap around deck (that offers both sun and shade options throughout the day), commercial grade Charbroil stainless gas BBQ, 10 Muskoka style chairs and 5 end tables - all custom painted in red, green, yellow, tan, and blue - and numerous railing-mounted market umbrellas for guests seeking a break from the sun.
This magnificent outdoor living area also features a Pfister stainless steel outdoor shower panel, which allows guests to just cool down on a hot day or rinse off after a day at the beach.
Complimentary Prince Edward Island National Park and Beach Pass
This luxury cottage is fully equipped to meet the needs of the most discerning guests, and even includes the use of a free season's pass to Prince Edward Island National Park and Cavendish Beach and six beach chairs!
Just a stone's throw away is Stephanie Scharf, a lovely massage therapist who is a dear friend of the cottage owners. Stephanie, originally from Ottawa, lives in the former Cavendish United Church Manse near the four corners at Cavendish with her husband, Chris. Stephanie would be pleased to offer guests staying at Cavendish Vacation Cottage a relaxing massage at reasonable rates.
