Jewel Box by the Sea
Doug’s delightful cottage was just what we were looking for - a quiet, well appointed retreat from the busy world of to-do lists and daily demands. The sounds of the sea, star filled nights and peaceful rhythms of ocean life were life affirming and quiet reminders of the nature’s enduring beauty. “Don’t just do something, sit there and be renewed”. And we were.
As a city dweller, I wanted my first time on the East Coast to be memorable and capture the nature and peacefulness I envisioned and desperately desired. Sitting on the deck watching the sunrises and sunsets, or sitting inside watching the waves and being thrilled by the wind and the rain, Doug's modern and pleasant cottage was the perfect retreat to be lulled asleep by the waves and the ocean breeze at the end of the day.
The murphy bed was very comfortable, the facilities were great. All that was needed was a working lightbulb for the lamp beside the bed.
I definitely recommend Doug and his cottage, as Doug is pleasant to communicate with and is very informative of the island and its sites and activities.
Stunning views, modern cottage
This cottage has a (multi) million dollar ocean view. It’s located on a small cliff just above the ocean and it’s amazing to wake up to this everyday. One of our favourite spots on the island was the sandy beach just at the end of the road (you can walk for kms and kms). The cottage has everything you need: a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, clothes washer/ dryer and spacious bathroom. It was bigger than we expected and more than enough space for the 2 of us (we left the Murphy bed down the entire time). The WiFi was spotty given it was wireless although it’s probably the best option available in the area. Unfortunately the flies made the outdoor seating area unusable except when a strong wind was blowing but it might have been a bad year for flies (or you might be more mosquito resistant). Doug was a great host and promptly answered any messages. He offered us some great recommendations on both lobster dinner and deep sea fishing. We would love to return to PEI and this cottage.
Awesome getaway in a private little part of PEI
My wife and I spent three nights in this great location on the ocean. The property was very clean, well located, and the owner was great to deal with. The property had everything we needed for a private, romantic stay. We highly recommend a walk on the beach to the dunes. Dinner at The Inn at St Peters is also a must. We would definitely come back the next time we come to PEI.
SPACIOUS Tiny Perfect Cottage!
We were looking for peace, quiet and privacy and the cottage provided all of that. The cottage and its situation were exactly as shown in the photos. Even though it is a "Tiny" cottage, it was very spacious for the two of us, even though, when not walking the beach, we mostly had to stay inside due to the unseasonally cold weather. We expected cool weather in the pre-season (mid-May), but there was a fierce, cold North wind blowing most of the time! And apparently snow, though not where we were. The panoramic views of the ocean from the multiple sliding doors were great. We had little desire to leave the area (one sightseeing drive) other than a couple of trips to the grocery store.
It was unfortunate that, due to the cold, we were not able to take advantage of the spacious deck around the house, nor keep the doors open to let in the air and the wave and bird sounds. It must be gourgeous in the warm summer weather.
We took advantage of the beach for numerous walks. The rocky beach in front of the cottage was beautiful and interesting to walk, which we did most days, and the sand beaches, to the east and in nearby Greenwich park to the west were a bit easier on our winter legs.
I found the Murphy bed very comfortable. We have been thinking of putting one into our guest room but this was the first time that we had slept on one. I forgot to check what the mattress was - it worked well.
The only reason that the cottage did not get 5 stars was due a a water issue that was fixed, but testing results did not come in until after we had left. We managed OK though.
Peaceful and relaxing place to stay.. View is breathtaking.. A perfect getaway place..
