New 3 Bedroom Home Can Sleep 9 - Country Privacy Close To The City
About Lisa MacEwen
My name is Lisa MacEwen and this land has been in my family for over 200 years. I grew up down the road and this property was the site of a Homestead, built in 1805, by my Great Great Grandparents and later lived in by my Great Aunt Elizabeth MacEwen. I live in Toronto with my 2 children. I built this home in 2012 to enjoy a little peace of heaven for ourselves each year for several weeks in the summer.
Lisa MacEwen purchased this Bungalow in 2012
Why Lisa MacEwen chose New Dominion
This is a special place with some of the oldest Chestnut and Linden trees in PEI, dating back to 1914, (which my Great Uncle brought back from California, to plant, before he headed of the WW1, where he was MIA and never came home. His memorial is at Vimy Ridge; France). After unsuccessful attempts to save the old Homestead, I decided to demolish it and built a brand new modern, modest but spacious and cozy home. I was able to save some pieces from the old Homestead that were incorporated in the decor and construction to give this new place some traditional character. Although I own other waterfront land on the Westriver, I chose to build here, as this land has a special, tranquil and peaceful energy to it, with a view! Every time I come home here, I don't want to leave!
What makes this Bungalow unique
The water on the South Shore is warmer and safer than the tourist popular Northshore. Canoe Cove, 5 minutes away, is one of the most popular south shore beaches known for its safe water, tide pools and red cliffs. You can also have you own private access to the West River in front of the property where you can explore by digging clams, oysters and mussels. The property also has 2 hammocks, 4 adirondack chairs around a fire pit, soceer and volleyball/badminton nets, two tire swings, swing, horseshoe set.

Excellent Property! Would Rent Again!
Our stay at the Westville Vista was beyond excellent. The location is close to the city but far enough away from the hustle and bustle that you can relax and unwind if you wanted to. The house's interior was super cute, amenities worked great, and bed's were super comfortable. All the cooking utensils you could ever need were provided. The view of the water is amazing! The fire pit was excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed this feature every night of our vacation. Also highly recommend taking a relaxing swing in the hammocks.
Thank you Lisa!!
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and I hope I have the chance to host you again. I am really looking forward to my vacation at home, Westville Vista, this summer. I love waking up and looking at the water...so peaceful. Have a wonderful summer.
Amazing place to stay!
Lisa's cottage is fabulous. It is a home away from home. It had everything that we needed for our long weekend away. We will be back:)
I am so glad you enjoyed my property. Please do come back and stay a little longer! Have a wonderful summer.
We drove down for a family road trip from Toronto and we had an amazing time here, the home was so clean when we arrived and the house was fully set up with everything we could need. Very cozy set up overall and loved the set up, the living room sofa overlooks a beautiful landscape outside of the walk out doors which is where we spent most of our time in the house. I would definitely come back here again the next time we go down which is hopefully soon.
Thanks for your review. I am so glad that Westville Vista worked for you and your family members. We certainly hope we can host you again. :)
Nice home in the quiet country
Great location. Easy access to main roads to go sight seeing. Close to amenities, but still felt like we had our own quite hideaway in the country.
Thanks so much Dawn. I am glad you enjoyed it. I look forward to hosting you and your family again.
Absolutely the best family vacation home!
We just finished our week's vacation and it was honestly hard to leave because we wanted to live in this vacation home forever! We had our family of four and my parents. The lay out of the home was perfect for space, rest, and privacy. The extra bathroom sink/storage area beside the two bedrooms made it perfect for getting ready! We packed way too much as the owner has truly thought of everything you would ever use for everyday living and vacation. There is an abundance of everything (luxury linens, appliances, amazing mattresses and more). The owner has gone above and beyond to ensure that you feel the luxury of a quality updated vacation home but has incorporated the true feeling of home. So many special touches of a beautiful family heritage. We love our house back home and enjoy the private lake but there is just something that is truly peaceful about this vacation home. The location is absolutely perfect! You certainly get the best of both worlds as you have a quiet oasis but are just minutes away from the "PEI highlights". We had to drop off our son to college so we combined our trip into a family holiday. We were telling the international student coordinator from Holland college about our amazing vacation home and he just had to check it out. He was also very impressed and said he was thankful to be able to have this place to recommend to future families. We have already passed on recommendations to our friends and family back home. If we ever get the privilege to stay for a week in PEI again we can't imagine staying anywhere else. It was a blessing and a gift to our entire family to stay at the Westville Villa. We will be forever grateful!
I am so pleased to hear how much you and your family enjoyed your stay at Westville Vista. It was a pleasure to host you and I thank you so much for the care that you took with laundry and cleaning to assist our cleaning staff upon check-out.
I would love to have you back. Kindest regards.
This place was AMAZING!!!!!!
We were so happy. It was spotless clean! Everything was new and updated. You are secluded and private yet 20 min to Charlottetown. Very roomy. We stayed with my husbanda and our 3 teenagers. Beach towels, beach blankets games, They have literally thought of everything !! Rebooking for next yr now! It was superb!!! Highly recommend. We traveled from Michigan and this place was like a mini paradise!!
