Our family rented cottage number #8 on Aug 12th for 3 nights.
My husband, two of our sons and daughter stayed in a 2 bedroom little cottage, with two baths.
The queen room had a small en-suite bath with whirlpool tub, and in the other bedroom had a double bed and a single bed. The second bathroom had a full tub/shower.
The living room area had a sofa that held a double pull out, and there were another two little chairs in which to sit.
There was a very small T.V. and a VCR. We knew in advance of this, so we brought tapes to watch. The office also offers VCR tapes to borrow.
There was a nice pool, clean, but could have been cleaner (they must have been in the process of cleaning the liner, as half was done). The pretty mural was faded - the one in the pictures with the palm tree....and some of the deck chairs could have used a wash. However, the temp of the water was perfect, and we all enjoyed it for an hour or two.
There were two Fire pits by the cottages on the side we stayed. On the other side (where the pool divides the property), I believe were two more. We purchased wood from the front office ....closes by 8pm I believe,...bit pricey...you can get wood down the road at the campsite for a bit cheaper.
We had a campfire two of the evenings we were there, and were allowed to do so past 11pm if we were quiet. It was perfect!!!
There is a volleyball net, horse-shoes, various toys for wee kids, playgrounds, and a basketball net. There are balls supplied (some needing air....we just went to a campers store and bought one), but there are more toys here for all, then most places we have stayed while "cottaging" on the island.
There is a small deck attached with a picnic table and two plastic chairs . There is also a small propane BBQ, that we used twice.
The kitchen is outfitted well. We used it for breakfast and one dinner and two lunches. The table in the kitchen sat 6, so it suited us well.
Our cottage was an executive. We paid $204.00 per eve, plus taxes. As we had our 5th child, we were charged an additional $8.00 per night.
We have stayed in many cottages on the island over the years, and we were very happy with our stay here. We found the cottages to be in good shape, the grounds were clean, and it had the required fire pit and pool (as requested by the "kids):))
We were also very happy that we could rent it for 3 nights, instead of one week, which seems to be what many cottage owners/resorts do now. We don't have one week with the teens anymore, so shorter rentals are important to us. ... this is a must for us, and we have passed the name of this property onto friends who are in similar circumstances.
We would definitely stay here again.
Your neighbours are close, but you still have some privacy. All of the cottages were arranged in a letter C, with a field in the centre and the pool. Perfect for getting to know people, if you would like, or watching your family during a game of badminton!
The only downside for us, is that we could not bring our little dog, as no pets are allowed here.....other then that...we enjoyed our cottage.
