Why Sheila Murphy chose Lot 21
I grew up in Stanley Bridge, in this house! My husband and I love coming home to the Island to spend our summers so we purchased and renovated my family home a few years ago. Its a great location to get away from it all and many of our guests comment "it's our Home away form Home". We hope you love it here as much as we do. Kip & Sheila

Amazing Home Away from Home
Thank you, Sheila, for an outstanding stay in your home away from home. You have thought of everything to include in the house. It is centrally located to so much, and we were very comfortable. We enjoyed every moment of our time on the island.
Thunder Cove was an absolute favourite, as was Basin Head Beach and Avonlea Village is as charming as can be!
We plan to visit again some day! Thanks again!
Christine, It was so nice to meet you and your family and we are pleased you enjoyed our home and your stay. Look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Excellent stay in Stanley Bridge
We had a fantastic stay in Stanley Bridge at this property with my family (myself, my husband and two year old son, and my parents). It was exactly as advertised; actually, all of us commented that the photos, although lovely, didn't quite do it justice. The living space is even larger and more open than it appears in the photos and was beautiful with huge picture windows so you can take in the view even when not on the patio. It was also very clean and well maintained. Sheila was great to deal with. We arrived on the island late at night and she made herself available to communicate with to make sure we had found the rental location and could access it despite the late hour. She also thoughtfully provided a high chair and pack n' play for our son to use, there was coffee and some other kitchen staples (spices, jam, syrup, etc.) provided which was a nice touch. Kitchen was well equipped and the large dining table was great as well. We used the fire pit one evening (there was even a starter kit of firewood provided) and had a great time. Stanley Bridge is a great location, close to the restaurants and activities of Cavendish and the surrounding area but just far enough away to be able to relax in the evenings and feel like you're getting away from it all. Overall, a lovely stay. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental or to stay here again in future if we're planning a trip to this part of the island.
Heather, we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write a review. It was lovely to meet your parents and I hope to see you back one day.

Great spot as it was close to everything in Cavendish, but also so nice, quiet and peaceful as it was tucked away on a beautiful private property. Very open and spacious layout for entertaining a group. Kitchen was well stocked with needed items for cooking. Firepit area was great!
Thank you, glad everyone is on the mend! Hope your next visit is more restful.
A home away from home !!
We rented this vacation home for 2 weeks and it was an excellent choice for 7 adults as there was plenty of room and was very comfortable. This vacation home has an excellent location as we were close to golf courses, Cavendish Beach, shopping, restaurants etc. The owners were very gracious and welcoming and I highly recommend this vacation rental for anyone planning a trip to beautiful PEI.
Thank you Tina, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay on PEI. It was great to meet you all and we hope to see you again some day! Sheila & Kip
My husband, adult son and I recently stayed at this wonderful house. We loved the location and how quiet the area is. But even more important we loved the house! The pictures are exactly right and you will not be disappointed. We made some beautiful memories here and hosted some extended family for an afternoon and they loved the place as well. We enjoyed a Celidah at the Stanley Bridge Hall, ate at the Oyster Bar and travelled all over the island from this location. The kitchen is well stocked with household items and we were even treated to coffee and jam upon arrival. The owners have done a wonderful job and we really felt at home.
We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in our summer home. Thank you so much for the review and for taking the time to write in our guest book. We love to hear from our guests and do hope that you have the opportunity to return some day soon!

Perfect Home and Location
We rented this beautiful home in the heart of PEI's North Shore in the fall of 2014. The home itself has been beautifully renovated in such a way as to create a large, open-concept living space surrounded by large bedrooms, a bright kitchen and convenient washrooms. It is perfect for a large family gathering! The home sits on a very private, landscaped property that overlooks the Stanley River...easily one of the most picturesque parts of the Island and handy to all the island has to offer recreationally. We kayaked on several of the rivers, caught brook trout minutes from the home, golfed at several spectacular golf courses, enjoyed ceilidhs at the hall just up the road, enjoyed the local oyster bar, visited the local artisan shops and of course spent awesome times at the beach! This home is literally minutes from all of this fun! Finally, we would like you to know that the owners are wonderful people who know the Island well and give great attention to detail. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for that authentic PEI experience.
