Why Jennifer MacDonald-Martin & Tony Martin chose Greenwich

We always wanted a cottage or small home with both a water-view and beautiful Island scenery.

They were thrilled to be able to buy a piece of family land and have a cottage/house with the view they always wanted - beautiful water view & picturesque countryside!!

This house was originally owned by a family member and then sold to an Ontario resident. When we had the chance to buy the house that was on land that went back 5 generations in Jennifer's family we jumped at that opportunity.

They always loved this area and it has the view they always wanted - stunning water view with beautiful countryside.

Having a beautiful beach & trails just 4 minutes away & everything you need within 5-10 mins make it even better.

Come and visit. You will surely agree it is lovely here!!

Wonderful cottage, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage, clean and with everything you need. The location is great, close to nice walks, beaches, bike trails. No issues with Lin's diner being so close - in fact, it's such a convenience. Cottage is clean with all the amenities you could want.

Great view, close to Greenwich park

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this cottage for 3 days during our visit to PEI.

The house had everything and more you could wish for. Owner is very friendly and helpful, kept in contact via mail to ensure everything was ok. Great view over the water, nice garden with the hummingbirds getting to your window for a bit of food.

It is very close to the Greenwich national park (4 minute ride) that has a few beautiful trails and a stunning beach.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our anniversary at the Moonlight Bay cottage. On arrival, we were greeted by Jennifer with a fresh bouquet of flowers and a bottle of wine for the occasion! This cozy cottage has so much charm and character that you cannot appreciate from the pictures - the tasteful decorating and high end amenities that are not always found in rental units. And, as others have mentioned, it is immaculately clean and stocked with all necessities and many extras.

We visited at the end of the season- thus the area was very quiet and relaxing. We had the beautiful PEI park almost to ourselves. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and a full moon. :) We also had the experience of a severe "NorEaster" storm that we will never forget! Jennifer and Tony were extremely accommodating and took very good care of us! And because we were there for the potato harvest, the "potato fairy" (a/k/a Tony) left us a bag of potatoes!

We explored the entire island (which is much bigger than I expected) and we agreed that the St Peters Bay area is the best location! It is away from the crowded towns and tourist areas, but still close enough to the conveniences for provisions and biking and hiking.

Of course we would highly recommend the Moonlight cottage to friends and relatives. And if you stay, please give our best to Jen and Tony!

Immaculately Clean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this Greenwich property. We likened the surrounding potato fields to be the PEI equivalent of being in France and surrounded by vineyards! The view to the water was lovely. At first we were unsure about being so close to 'Lin's Takeout' because we learned its a busy spot with lots of locals coming up the lane for food. However, it was surprisingly quiet and actually quite handy to send the kids over to pick up some ice cream or yummy chips. The cottage's close proximity to the stunning PEI park with its boardwalk trails and sand dunes, along with the perfect Greenwich beach were bonuses for this location. We happened to be around for the last day of the Blueberry festival, so we were able to sit with the locals and enjoy a late night fireworks display! A unexpected treat. This property had every amenity, the kitchen was well equipped, the linens and towels were beautiful, and the house was immaculately clean. Overall, a great place to start our east coast vacation.

The view really is lovely - so relaxing. Lin' s is an added bonus. A great place to eat and far enough away that you don't even notice the cars. I am happy that you were able to experience this part of the PEI National Park The beach and trails are beautiful. Thank you for mentioning the cottages amenities, and the details on the kitchen, towels, and especially that it was immaculately clean. It is our goal to always provide an exceptionally clean cottage for our guests. Thanks again for saying that. Thank you for staying with us and if you do another east coast vacation perhaps we will see you some time again! Jennifer

Perfect place for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to PEI and staying at Greenwich Moonlight Bay Cottage was just a perfect place to stay!

Jennifer and Tony's cottage is a great place to relax and enjoy the island! It was a short drive to beaches and trails for walking or biking. An extra great thing is Lin's takeout! A short walk across the yard for the best cheeseburger we have ever had! For some fining dining I would recommend the St Peter's Bay Inn which is right down the road.

The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed! It truly was a home away from home! You can see that Jennifer really put her heart into decorating the cottage! The view from the front of the cottage overlooked The St Peter's Bay.

I highly recommend Greenwich Moonlight Bay Cottage!

Thanks Jennifer and Tony!

Owner's Response: Thanks do much for the great review!. We also appreciated you noticing the things that we try to do to make our guests comfortable. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. The peace and quiet along with that beautiful waterview sure make a great recipe for a relaxing vacation. It was great that you were able to enjoy some of the Greenwich PEI National Park. The beach and trails are great. You were even able to enjoy the food establishments nearby which was nice. Having Lin's that close by comes in very handy for guests!! Thanks again for your review. It helps future guests learn more about the cottage and area and learn more from your experiences! Maybe you will get back to PEI for another visit sometime. If you do we would love to have you stay with us again. Jennifer
