About Kim and David Knowles

My husband and I love the Southcott Pines neighbourhood and welcome the opportunity to share it with you. We have been in the cottage rental business for almost 15 years and enjoy meeting all of the families and groups that rent our cottage. We have met so many nice people through the years and many have become like family since they keep coming back year after year!

Warmest regards, Kim and David Knowles

Kim and David Knowles purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Kim and David Knowles chose Ontario

Grand Bend is a great place to vacation since there is so much to do. The beach is nice and sandy - and you have a choice of the private, quiet Southcott beach or you can go to the main Grand Bend beach and watch the volleyball players or para-sailing. Lots of great restaurants to choose from, at very affordable prices and a variety of fun shops to wander through on the main strip. Southcott is a lovely place to walk and bike.

What makes this cottage unique

Many people have commented that they can't believe how big this cottage is on the inside. It is like the Harry Potter tent - you know the one that looks like a small tent on the outside but when you go inside it is absolutely huge! Our cottage has very large bedrooms, lots of big closets and a floor plan that really makes sense.

We were attracted to how well this cottage was built when we first toured it and loved the exterior cedar siding. The location is a definite plus since it is very close to the beach.We are committed to providing a cottage rental experience that is Comfortable, Cozy and Clean.

We want our guests to feel like this is their home away from home.

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 adults & 4 kids, aged 5-9. We loved the space in this house and the fact the children had there own space, for playing and sleeping, in the basement. As we visited in July we visited the near by beach every day for fun in the water and amazing sunsets. It is a 30 minute walk or short drive to Grand Bend with a good choice of shops and restaurants. The only downside was no washing machine which would have been useful. However, there are at least 2 laundrettes in town. It would also be great to have more information about local services, attractions and events on arrival at the cottage as we weren't familiar with the area. Overall, a fun and memorable week for everyone.

Spacious, well kept vacation home.

  • 4 of 5

We spent the last week of September at this vacation home and were greeted by the owners, Kim and David. They were extremely friendly and gave us the tour of the house, which is much larger than it would appear from the outside. All the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. We were joined for 3 days by my sister and her husband, my brother-in-law really enjoyed the massage chair. I think he wants one now. The new bathroom in the basement is very nice and convenient for those sleeping in the bedrooms there. The basement level still has some finishing touches to be completed. We found the house to be well maintained and very clean. The one downside was the BBQ has quite a buildup of grease under the cooking grate and made lighting difficult. It was a natural gas BBQ which is nice in that you never have to worry about running out of fuel in the middle of cooking your steaks. The location was great, only a few minutes into the shopping at Grand Bend. We would definitely rent again if returning to Grand Bend and would not hesitate to recommend this rental to friends.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

This spacious house was perfect for our two families with teens. The kids enjoyed their own parent-free space downstairs and the dining and living areas gave us all plenty of room to relax . We made the most of the beautiful forest setting and nearby beaches -- great for cycling, walking and swimming.

A great family getaway

Wonderful experience all around ! The cottage is extremely clean & well taken care of. The location is ideal-- quiet area & easy walk to a great beach (warm, shallow & great for kids). Check in & check out were very easy & owners were extremely friendly & helpful. We would definitely consider renting this cottage again.

Nice place, huge cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This place is the best of Southcott Pines in Grand Bend: close to the excellent, shallow, sandy beach (5 min walk); located in the middle of the forest; no mosquitoes! The cottage is large, well maintained, has all appliances and BBQ, reasonable size yard. No mold, musty smell or broken furniture as in other cottages we've been to. Hosts are extremely helpful and welcoming. Enjoyed our stay very much, thank you!
