About Brian Power-Grimm
As teachers, my wife Jane and I have had full careers in Nova Scotia, the mountains of BC and Massachusetts. As fitness and outdoor enthusiasts and parents to three sons we have learned the pleasures of recharging at the beach.
Brian Power-Grimm purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Brian Power-Grimm chose Darnley
We did the vacation research for you in 1996 when we travelled Prince Edward Island far and wide looking for "the" cottage where we could happily return year after year. Sandcastles Beach House was everything we had hoped for, and MORE. So much more that we kept a standing reservation as renters ourselves as did many other delighted vacationers. In 2003 we were fortunate to have the opportunity to buy the Beach House, and now we welcome you to come share in the joyful experience of life on the beach.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sandcastles allowed us to park our car at the beginning of the week and not feel the need to start it up again. Having the beach on site, the best views in the world at our doorstep, spacious rooms for our family and all amenities within arms reach made us come back year after year until we bought it ourselves.

Great spot for us
Great location with the best beach
A blissful stay!
Everything a person could ever want is provided in this quaint two bedroom dune side location. A short jaunt over the dunes and you’re at the magnificent ocean with crisp breezes and beautiful red sand. Early sunrises and late sunsets allowed ample time for both leisure time and island discovery. I would highly recommend this wonderful place for both single and family vacations. The host and hostess were very accommodating and some of the nicest people I’ve met in a long time! Thank you so much for a memorable experience!
Wow...Sandy...what can I say? Such a nice comment and much appreciated. It was a pleasure to have a chance to spend a little time with you. We seem to be so fortunate through the years to draw the most wonderful people to our little piece of the island. You're welcome back any time to recharge after your busy year.
Comfortable, all the amenities, great beds, wonderful area
Very relaxing, great walks on the beach, lovely PEI, super accommodation. Brian was great, lots of good info and quick responses.
Thanks so much for coming. We find those sunset walks as the sun disappears into the ocean, leaving behind a colourful display...mesmerizing! Glad you then enjoyed crawling into the comfy new beds.
Great location lovely couple clean well equiped
We're lucky to have those western views of the pond and the ocean.
Wonderful cottage within walking distance of one of best beaches on PEI!
Sandcastles Beach House-Duneside is a treasure! It's centrally located on the beautiful northern shore of Prince Edward Island. The setting is amazing with a pond filled with bird life right off the deck and then over a short dune walk, you find Thunder Cove Beach, one of the prettiest beaches on the island. The owners are wonderful. They are very accommodating, easy to work with, and anything you could need is provided. We rented both Duneside and Meadowside to have more space to spread out which is a really nice option. Renting both sides would be great for larger families, family reunions, or just to have more space. Just be aware that the cottages don't have an adjoining door inside. But each cottage is very spacious with a wonderful view. Very reasonably priced as well! Highly recommend!! We had a wonderful time here!
Thanks for taking the time to write your kind words Jamie. It is always rewarding for us to hear that guests appreciate the surrounding area as much as we do. It is particularly gratifying to find out that a traveller's experience has been enhanced by a stay at Sandcastles Beach House. All the best!
We really enjoyed our stay in this great location. The unit was clean and the beds were comfortable. Seeing a pair of eagles circling the pond was a real treat. We stayed in September and it was quiet and relaxing - just what we were looking for. The owners were very nice.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. We're fortunate to have the eagles living on the other side of the pond and seeing them most days. We still get excited each time we spot them.
Beach enthusiasts', bird-watchers' and golfers' paradise.
