Had a lot of fun here. Accommodations were great. The owner was very friendly and quick to get us anything we needed. Nice playground area for the kids. Location is inside of the national park which grants you free access to the park. Beautiful unsupervised beach across the road. All of the Cavendish tourist attractions are within a two minute...

All the pictures are from far away. because the place is very disappointing. broken fridge, cottage bounces when you walk in it, broken door that was ignored by owner. Absentee owners and the caretakers are less than pleasant. little bugs, ripped screens, small crowded rooms, mixed bedding. Stay away and go to one of the nice places in PEI, of... More

I wanted to give this place a great review....but I just can't. The owners were absolutely lovely....couldn't do enough for us....BUT, the place could really use a facelift. The cabins are clean on the inside, yet dated. Our fridge, did the job, but the freezer section was in desperate need of a defrosting. Painting the decks and chairs would be... More

We found Cavendish by the Sea thru the PEI tourist information board and I have to tell you that we were very impressed. We spent 2 nights in a cabin with two bedrooms and we wished that we could stay longer. The owners were very nice and accomodating. They were very knowledgable and were able to provide us with options... More

This is my favorite place on earth. We have spent the past 12 summers vacationing here and Kevin & Diane are amazing hosts. Cottages are perfect for a week at the beach. And what a beach it is...if you go in the offseason you may find you have the whole beach to yourself. If you like to collect sea glass... More

This place is wonderful! The location is the best! You are a 3 minute walk from the beach, away from the busyness of the main drag. The cottages are side-by-side but the open space in front of the cottages make you feel like you are here alone; you're not looking into your neighbors windows. The cottage itself is clean and...

You will not find a place that is closer to the sea. Very friendly group of people. Great place to come and get away from it all. A true hidden gem. Had a great time going down to the beach in the moon light. We even had the opportunity to see an electrical storm in the distance that would light... More

This place was recommend by PEI tourism. After booking I came here to read some reviews, I tried to cancel our booking, but was told two weeks notice was required, and I would lose my deposit, which is two nights stay.. The Cottage was very old, and was not clean, there was dog hair all over the furniture, the floors... More

The best thing about this place is the friendly people. The cottages are small and dirty. Depending on who you get on the phone, customer service is not the best. I was charged twice for my stay on my VISA and it took me a month to get my money back. Not my idea of a dream getaway.

Just spent 3 nights at Cavendish by the Sea cottages. Cottages were clean and comfortable. Owners were great!! My 5 year old had a blast in the park and the adults enjoyed relaxing on the deck with some beers. The dogs loved it. Location is perfect and next year we will go back for a week. Thanks for the hospitality!... More
