About the property

This executive 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom waterfront home meets all of your needs

This newly renovated, spacious, waterfront cottage is located on the North Shore adjacent to world famous Cavendish National Park and Anne of Green Gables. A treed lot to the north provides a peaceful retreat on the deck while the water view from the family room and upstairs living spaces is breathtaking. Watch the oyster fisherman collect their catch or sit on the shore in front of the cottage to view the sand dunes of the Cavendish National Park. Conveniently located within a 30 minute drive from either Charlottetown or Summerside, it provides a excellent starting point for touring the island.

A BBQ and a fully loaded kitchen with a second fridge and freezer can accommodate meals at home. With 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, satellite, internet, propane fireplace, living room, family room, laundry room, exercise and games room, it will be home away from home. There are plenty of indoor (pool, air hockey) and outdoor games to choose from as well as movies, DVD's and puzzles to entertain on the rare day you want to spend indoors. We have a red stone fire pit for you to build a campfire at nights.

There are three upstairs bedrooms with queen beds, one with an ensuite full bath. The downstairs bedroom has one bunk bed and four twin beds.

Island Solitude Beach House is our second cottage in Stanley Bridge and was first rented in 2014. Our first cottage is Island Dream Beach House which we started renting in 2012 . We would be truly honoured to have you as our guests.

About Debbie Godfrey

I was born and raised on Prince Edward Island. I presently live in Ontario but visit P.E.I. every summer and stay in a third cottage we own in Seawood Estates. My husband Glenn stays on the island for the summer and manages our two rental cottages while I travel back and forth to work.All of my family live on P.E.I. and when you visit this beautiful island you will understand why they never wanted to leave! We personally take care of the property ourselves and are available for any of your needs during your stay.

Debbie Godfrey purchased this house in 2011

Why Debbie Godfrey chose Stanley Bridge

I bought this cottage because of it's tranquil waterfront location. The peninsula of Seawood estates is shaped like a horse shoe and projects about one mile into New London Bay. Convenient footpaths provide easy access to the waterfront and two miles of shoreline around the peninsula. The sunsets in this area are spectacular and the view of the sand dunes of the National park to the North is breathtaking. I had to own a little piece of this paradise!

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this home because of the peace I felt sitting on one of it's three decks. It is next to a meadow with trees and when I take in the view of that tranquil lot and the water of the Hope River from all of the living spaces within the home, I was sold! We renovated the home in 2012 and added new windows to capture that view.

Wonderful cottage for a PEI holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Island Solitude. We are a group of middle-aged golfers who come to PEI every September for a week of golf and seafood....Debbie and Glenn's cottage was the ideal base for this, and it was comfortable and well equipped. They were super easy to deal with and everything about the transaction and logistics went according to plan.

The lot and views are terrific, peaceful and beautiful. The cottage is very spacious and comfortable.

Other than 4 golfers, this cottage would be ideal for a couple of big families with lots of kids, there's so many beds in the basement! And lots to do in the immediate area, of course. All in all a wonderful spot and we would definitely stay here again.

Un superbe séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Superbe propriété isolée des voisins avec plage tout proche. Les enfants ont adoré voir les étoiles de mer et ramasser des coquillages. La maison est encore plus belle que sur les photos. Très grandes pièces ouvertes avec 3 belles chambres et deux salles de bain complètes. Beaucoup de rangement. Nous n'avons manqué de rien. Le sous-sol est un plus pour les gros groupes mais le premier étage nous a suffit à nous 6 amplement. Très propre et calme. Nous y retournerions demain matin!

Près de tout, Summerside à seulement 25 minutes en voiture, commerce de proximité pour les petits besoins, superbe poissonnerie Carr's, Plage de Cavendish facilement accessible.

Maison très bien équipée, vélo, chaise de plage, jouets pour les enfants, jeux pour le sable, bois, vaiselle,...

The perfect place for a large family gathering on PEI!

  • 5 of 5

As a young girl, our daughter immersed herself in the beautifully written 'Anne of Green Gables' books. We said that one day we would travel to Prince Edward Island and explore the area the books were set in. After searching many properties on the island, we definitely found the perfect place!

We are thankful that we found the most gorgeous place to stay for our week on PEI. The accommodation was spacious, well equipped and set in a beautiful part of the island. There were four of us from England and five of us from Massachusetts and we found the property large enough to not feel on top of each other when we were all in the house together. , We also found the owner, Debbie Godfrey, most helpful with all our enquiries.

The nine of us would have no qualms in highly recommending this lovely property to those thinking of coming to PEI.

We appreciate the excellent shape and cleanliness that you left our home in and always welcome guests like you again. Next time maybe you can come in June to September when the weather is nicer!!

We were there with our family for 50th anniversary. We spent a week and it could not have been better. The cottage (home) is beautiful. It is open concept, very clean and spacious all throughout. The deck and outside to water is great. You could not ask for a better place to spend a vacation when away from home. It is inviting from first glance. We would return in a second with no reservations. Highly recommend this wonderful place.

You will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an entire week there! Absolutely amazing, the pictures do not do this cottage justice! Very spacious, loved the open concept, lots of storage space if needed! Very clean, loved all the decor! Can't say enough about this cottage. Tonnes of room for everyone! The kids loved having the whole down stairs to themselves and having lots of things to do that were supplied by the cottage owners, they were never bored. We will definitely be back. We had more than enough room for the 7 of us and had discussed you could have 3 families in that place no problem and still have lots more room! Any questions we had, I was able to text Glenn or email Debbie and I got an instant reply! No issues or concerns, was easy to find and lots to do! My only complaint is I wish we had more sun! :(
