How close to the water can you be without being in it? This beachfront property extends to the waterline of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The beach path is steps away from the spacious wrap-around lower level deck, and leads to miles of beautiful, unspoiled, sandy beach on the north shore of Prince Edward Island. The deck and great room offer a view of the sun rising from the sea and setting over the cliffs to the West.

The cottage's upper-level deck-offering a panoramic view of Thunder Cove's dunes, cliffs, beach and sea-extends from an all-glass high-ceilinged great room. This 30 foot-wide room has four patio doors to the deck, and includes a living and dining area, as well as a modern kitchen with Corian countertops.

The two upper level bedrooms also open to the wrap-around deck. A central staircase leads to the lower deck with three bedrooms, a laundry room, a full bath, and a TV/recreation room, which opens to the sheltered lower deck on the dune with a view of the sea beyond.

The cottage has five bedrooms; three with queen beds, one with two twin beds, and one with two bunk beds sleeping four. In total, the cottage sleeps 12, plus two in the sofa bed in the downstairs TV/rec room. The two queen-sized bedrooms upstairs each have an ensuite bathroom with whirlpool baths. An additional full bathroom is located on the first floor.

                                                        Beautiful location, wonderful cottage.


                                                        Beautiful location, great cottage, enjoyed our stay. Only item to mention is the cottage could use a good cleaning. Very dusty throughout.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        We employ a crew of professional cleaners each week between bookings. Since the cottage is located on a sand dune with 7 patio doors leading to the upper and lower decks a certain amount of sand can accumulate during the week while guests are in the cottage.

                                                        We had a fantastic time! The views from the cottage were gorgeous. We rented with two other families and had plenty of room. Each family had their own bathroom which was very helpful when getting ready to go in the morning :). The owners are very lovely people and were always available for help or to answer questions. They always made sure the propane tank for the BBQ was full and that our needs were met. We will definitely rent from them again. In our opinion Thunder Cove is the most beautiful place on the island!

                                                        A dream come true!

                                                        You would have to be a real grump or diva to not adore this cottage! The place is beautiful and the location ideal. You have an amazing view of dunes and ocean all around you with the wrap around windows and a deck on two levels also wrap around. The gorgeous beach is steps away. The owner came right over when we needed help with the grill. The cottage was clean and had all that we needed, we were seven with three kids and had plenty of space, the two levels is great if you have kids, they can play downstairs. Queen size bed downstairs was not very comfortable - hard - but other beds were comfortable. The cottage is so great that you will have to force yourself to leave to visit other parts of the island. Thanks to Mescal and John for sharing this truly wonderful cottage, it gave us so much happiness.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thanks for your kind words! We enjoyed having you and we'll replace the hard mattress.

                                                        Had a great time so close to the beach ,great for kids

                                                        This wonderful cottage made our vacation perfect. We were close enough to all the sites we wanted to see, but away from all the crazy tourism. It took us about a minute to walk to the beach- which was a perfect beach for our kids to play in the water and sand. Sherrie had the home open and ready for us and checked in on us frequently. The few extra things we needed for cooking for our large group she found for us. It's an amazing place. The view of the stars, sunrises and sunsets are unforgettable. We loved this place and are excited to come back!

                                                        Best summer vacation spot ever!


                                                        Our one-week stay at Mostly Dune was by far the best vacation spot our family has ever enjoyed!! Very comfortable, well-maintained house with a great layout allowing for spectacular views of the ocean, sunrises and sunsets. Lots of opportunity on the upper deck for stargazing at night and sipping coffee in the morning. The public but very private beach is only a minute-walk away over the dune and is perfect, especially for families with young children - soft sand, shallow waters and close by. Our kids especially enjoyed catching crabs in the ocean in August! A short stroll down the beach provides some fantastic natural wonders to explore in rocks and caves. Great places nearby to pick up fish and seafood for dinner, great local souvenirs and even play some golf. Mostly Dunes is a hidden treasure. Can't wait for a return visit again!
