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.

Wonderful location and well equipped
The cottage was as advertised. I had not realized it was a duplex - missed that somehow- but it all worked out really well. The location was fantastic, just a short hop over the dune and you are on the beach. Host was quick to respond and made some great recommendations including the Anne and Gilbert production in Charlottetown. We felt very rested and relaxed after a few days there.
We stayed there for a girls trip and it was perfect! Great view of the pond and decks for lounging. We really appreciated the laundry facilities and Brian amd Jane's recommendations for activities were spot on. We had a wonderful trip and would definitely return.
Perfect home, location for your ladies getaway!! Loved the house, great location, very hospitable owners. Only problem - we needed to stay longer. Thank you Jane and Brian. Hope to enjoy your beautiful home again in the future
Thanks Dianne...Glad Sandcastles Beach House was able to host your get together. Hope you carry with you images of the sunset, from the deck, for years to come. We'd love to see you head down our way again.
Cozy, comfortable cottage
I chose Meadowside for a 4-day get-away in late September/early October. This cottage is cozy and comfortable and has fabulous views of the dunes with the ocean beyond. The beach is second to none. Overall a great trip and a very pleasant time of year to be in PEI.
We've had many guests tell us we're fortunate to be situated on their favourite beach in the world. We couldn't agree more. Thanks!
Gear to watch the sunsets every night and so close to an amazing beach
Thanks so much. We love being able to run back and forth from the beach to the cottage so easily. And yes...those sunsets are exceptional over the pond that borders our lawn. Hope to have you back some time.
Beautiful Cottage by the beach
The cottage was extremely clean and welcoming. It was just a short walk over the dunes to the beach which to me represented what I wanted to see of PEI. There was a lovely wrap around porch which offered a lovely view of the sunset. Full amenities included WiFi and TV, Dishwasher and laundry and lots of towels for our use. The week we were there, it was very warm and nights without a/c was not as comfortable as we had to leave the windows and doors open. However, it was very windy with a good breeze at all times. We golfed in the area and enjoyed Red Sands (a local 9 hole course) the best. From our perspective, it was not worth the drive to Crowbush.
We had our dog with us and he loved the freedom of the side yard and was very comfortable in the house. I would highly recommend the location and this cottage. Thanks Brian.
Sandcastles is located in a beach enthusiasts', bird watchers' and golfers' paradise.
