Beautiful house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Old Winsloe House with another family - four adults and three kids in total - and it was a wonderful experience! The house had recently been sold to a new owner and we were his first guests. When we arrived Paul told us to let him know if anything was missing as he had tried to think of everything, but was sure that he had not. We soon found a few things missing, such as handsoap and garbage cans in the bathrooms, and when we came back later that same day Paul had supplied these along with bedside lamps. The house was spacious with a well stocked kitchen and there was plenty of room for all seven of us.

The location is secluded, but the coast around this area of the island is quite spectacular with red sand and rolling fields. The house has direct beach access down a set of stairs at the rear of the property, and there is a more accessible beach a hundred metres down the road. Although tucked away in the southeast corner of the island, almost anywhere in PEI is within an hour and a half's drive. We visited the north shore beaches, Charlottetown, and several lighthouses. We had a particularly fine dinner at the restaurant next to Point Prim Lighthouse (Point Prim Chowder House). Golfing is also nearby with courses for all levels within half an hour's drive.

We had a lovely time here and would highly recommend it. Paul was a responsive and helpful owner. If we return to PEI we will certainly be renting this house again!

Best we've found in 14 years in the area!

  • 5 of 5

I've been hosting a golf weekend in eastern PEI for guys from all around the world for 14 years now and each year we've struggled to find good accommodations in the Murray Harbour area ... until we found the old Winsloe House. We rented the entire house and the carriage house and it was perfect for 5 guys - each with his own bedroom. Despite being 100 years old, the house has been impeccably renovated and modernized with all new furniture. It sits on a property that has direct access to the shore and the ocean and is in an area that is a bit of hidden gem in PEI. For our purposes, only 30 minutes to great golf at Brudenell/Dundarave. The host was very attentive to our needs and very responsive. We're definitely coming back next year!

Superbe maison faites pour recevoir 4 couples. Nous avons passé un super moment. Paula a été impeccable et nous a montré le fonctionnement. Bien située pour des golfeurs car du bon côté des 3 meilleurs golfs de l'île. Un défaut ?? Pas vraiment sauf les moustiques.
