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.

What makes this house unique

Coming from the city, this location provided us with ample space, peace and quiet and yet is close proximity to everything we needed and love to do (especially beach walks and golfing)

Guestbook comments from the manager

This cottage was beautifully renovated with a huge yard and view of the river. It was very clean and well kept. The beds are very comfortable and the dining area is the key feature in this home. Its so nice to all sit together at the table and enjoy the view every morning for breakfast. The cottage is surrounded by trees and is very quite and private which is great for families. Just a cozy feel to this home. It also has all you need for your stay. (Towels, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and pans, washer/dryer with detergent, dishwasher, t.v etc.) Its close to many attractions like avonlea Village, theme parks, beaches and everything anne of Green Gables. Just a few minutes away are restaurants and a place to purchase fresh seafood. No matter where you are in PEI you will want to drive around, there are so many spectacular views and cute tea shops and stores to see. The home was central to every place we wanted to see and with a newborn baby it was important to not have to drive for too long to get anywhere. The owners Kip and Sheila were so accommodating and answered any questions I had regarding my trip and stay. They even gave me websites of events going on during my stay and suggested places to see. They were easily available by phone if I needed anything and made a follow up call to ensure all was well and if we needed anything else. We went in September so it rained a bit and we had to spend a few afternoons inside, but we still had a wonderful time which says a lot about the home and PEI. In September several businesses close, but the advantage is everything is less expensive, a lot of merchandise is on sale, and all the national parks we went to were free entry (besides anne of Green Gables). I would definitely go back to this cottage no doubt about it!

Thanks to Kip and Sheila for being so kind and hospitable.

Well located, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Murphy’s River Vista. We had a fantastic time in PEI and by staying at Murphy’s River Vista, we could get to all the places we wanted to visit easily. We especially enjoyed the Ceilidh music down the road at the Stanley Bridge Community Centre and going to Gallant’s Seafood to buy some fresh seafood to cook up. Thanks to Sheila and Kip

Wonderful stay at Murphy's River Vista

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visit PEI every summer from New York and stayed a week with our two young sons recently at this beautiful house. Sheila and Kip were responsive and accomodating. The house was well laid out, clean, air conditioned and the location was ideal, as it was close to shops, restuarants, parks and gorgeous beaches. I would highly recommend staying at Murphy's River Vista.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying a Murphy’s River Vista this past week! The house is very convenient to everything including Cavendish and north shore beaches, restaurants and shops, and some of the best golfing on the island. We had everything we needed and the coffee, maple syrup and and preserves were a very nice touch to make us feel at home! We will definitely be back!

Amazing Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excellent stay in Stanley Bridge

  • 5 of 5

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.

Location location!!

  • 5 of 5

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!
