About Gabe

Good Day and welcome to our home!! We are a Canadian military family. We purchased this home as somewhere to retire to and to give our children someplace to call home given our nomadic lifestyle. My family live near our home, making this the perfect place for our kids to build ties and have a place to always call home. Though we maybe living else where at the time, our hearts and our pride are in this home and we try to spend as much time there as possible. I hope you enjoy this home as much as we do.

Why Gabe chose Murray Harbour North

This home is meant to solidify strong and enduring relationships with friends and family. It is a place that will hopefully let time stand still and where you will enjoy privacy of a huge back yard (approx 48 acres) and your own private beach.

What makes this house unique

Separate studio above the garage. Private beach. Huge yard and deck as well as a great fire pit. 48 acres to ensure privacy and a starlit sky.

The perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this stunning cottage for the last week of July. The space was a perfect fit for our family of 7, with Nana and Papa enjoying the apartment suite when they needed a break from the kids! The yard space is phenomenal - it was the perfect backdrop for many family soccer and baseball games and endless hours of bean bag tosses and kite flying. We were spoiled with the private beach and we're fairly certain that our kids have cleared the beach of lobster claws, clam shells and every other creature that washed up with the tide. Panmure Island is minutes down the road and we found a gem of a playground at the Kings Cove provincial park - only 15 min from the cottage. This cottage is a dream and our family is so thankful for Gabe's and Minnie's hospitality - they took care of every detail and were always great to speak with. Book this cottage, you won't regret it!!!!

East PEI oasis

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this home for 5 nights with another family (4 adults, 3 young adults and 2 children) and loved the space and amenities it provided. The 3-person suite above the garage was perfect for the young adults to have their own space, and the main house had lots of room for all of us to hang out together. The kitchen is well appointed with a nice large fridge, dishwasher, and everything we needed to prepare meals for a crowd. We loved eating on the deck and roasting marshmallows at the fire pit and walking to the beachfront on property - it’s not really a swimming beach but still nice to go and see the views. The housekeeper/manager

Minnie is such a gem - she had fresh butter tarts waiting for us when we arrived, the house was spotless, and she drove out to bring us another fan when the temperatures soared. The only damper was the relentless mosquitoes which we heard were unusually bad this year so that is no one’s fault, but bring bug spray! Thanks Minnie and Gabe for a fabulous stay at this peaceful retreat off the tourist path but still in driving distance to anywhere you’d want to go.

The house was just like the pictures once we found it. Very clean and comfy.

  • 5 of 5

We went with our 4 grandchildren and they enjoyed the beach so much. Minnie was very helpful and the house and yard had plenty of room to run and have fun. Unfortunately no bonfires as the mosquitos was to take you away, but there is nothing you can do about that. Thanks to Gabe for a memorable holiday. The best I have had. I want to move to PEI for the summers. My first trip to the island, hopefully not my last.

A corner of PEI to be cherished

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this peaceful and refined retreat where wilderness has been wisely preserved. The most efficient and graceful management provided by Minnie and Gabe, to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of their guests, is to be commanded and was fully appreciated.

LWell-appointed and perfect for our needs. We had two tweens who enjoyed having their space in the granny flat above the garage. The private beach was an awesome addition and we spent a few evenings catching the sunsets, with a glass of bubbles, while the kids raced played on the beach. The property manager (Minnie) was very responsive – even helping us

find a walk-in doctor’s clinic.

The only issue was the mosquitoes – which were fairly prolific just outside the house and in parts on the path down to the beach. It meant lots of running to and from the car!

Other highlights in the area were: lobster rolls at the Sandbar & Grill on Panmure Island and the beach, Maritime Madness hot sauce and taking a 20 mile roundtrip bike ride along the Confederation Trail from Montague to Georgetown and grabbing a bit to eat at Clamdiggers Beach House
