Overview

About the property

Safe, Sandy Beach with Warm, Shallow waters

Midway between CHARLOTTETOWN & CONFEDERATION BRIDGE on PEI's SPECTACULAR SOUTH SHORE.

Only minutes from CAVENDISH & GOLF COURSES

Cottage comes completely equipped with fridge, stove, microwave, coffee pot, pots and pans, complimentary coffee, tea, creamo and sugar, SATELLITE TV, large furnished deck, gas BBQ, towels and linens, dishes, etc. We also provide wireless internet access, satellite television, Riff Raff Room (with games, books and movie libraries, washer and dryer), playground, basketball and volleyball, horseshoe pits and Riff Raff Raft.

Located on Prince Edward Island’s spectacular and undeveloped South Shore, the extensive sandbars make the shallow water warm and safe for children - even at high tide. There are no rip tides but there are lots of bar clams to dig and the best beach combing on the island at low tide. No cliffs make our beach easily accessible to seniors and children.

Unlike the North Shore, our beach is never crowded, the sea glass picking is excellent and there is always a treasure to find or something to poke with a stick.

And the sunsets are superb. As cottage faces west, most evenings provide a spectacular show, particularly when sunset occurs at low tide.

Don’t forget your camera. You can find a stick when you get here.

Note there is a charge ($10/day/person) for additional persons.

Due to our high volume of repeat guests (to whom we give priority on future bookings) we strongly recommend making your reservation as early as possible.

ONE (1)WEEK MINIMUM bookings preferred in high season.

We now take Visa or MasterCard although we prefer personal cheques, cash, Visa cheques or MasterCard cheques.

Pets are usually not allowed except in special circumstances and agreed to in advance by the owners. Otherwise, nearby kennels must be arranged (we can assist with the arrangements).

About Don & Lynda McCrimmon

Don and Lynda moved to PEI in 2007 and have completely renovated this spectacular beachfront property.

Don & Lynda McCrimmon purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Don & Lynda McCrimmon chose Prince Edward Island

We always dreamed of owning a beautiful place on the beach on an island full of lovely people, though we never thought we would find it in Canada. As we are almost a km from the highway the sounds are only those of ocean and birds. With the nearest public access almost 4 km away the beaches are amazingly uncrowded.

What makes this cottage unique

The waters are shallow and warm, being heated by the sun's energy stored in the dark red sands, so the water temperature is much warmer than the north shore, often by as much as 15 degrees C.

FANTASTIC VACATION SPOT!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to Distant Shore Cottages for 3 years. It is absolutely wonderful there. The owners, Don and Lynda, are wonderful people, always willing to help in anyway they can. The grounds are immaculate, flowers, green grass, beautiful trees. The cottages have everything you need for a wonderful vacation. This beautiful Vacation spot is right on the Northumberland strait, which is just a few steps away from all of the cottages. I have already booked my trip for 2015.

Wedding on the Private Beach was Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this resort for almost 2 weeks and had the time of our lives. We had family join us and we rented three cabins, and had our wedding on the beach at low tide. Everything was incredible. The owners went out of their way to make sure that we had an incredible stay. The cabins are very modern and had everything that you need. The beach is beautiful! We spent lots of time swimming, collecting sea glass and relaxing. It is an incredible location as you can take day trips all over the island and be back to BBQ on your own deck for supper, and watch the sunset.
