“Great hosts and nice area for outdoor activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The cottages are clean and well appointed. Facilities include weight room, laundry, and play structure for young kids Great location - close to confederation trail for biking; right on the Murray river which you can take out to the ocean in the kayaks included with the cottage rental and last but not least a nice clean pool which our kids enjoyed tremendously. Great location for family with young kids or kids in early teenage years.

Property owners were very helpful with recommendations regarding places to eat; characteristics of the various beaches in the area and local wineries.

My husband even had the opportunity to go searching for oysters with owner Dean who barbecued and shared them with us...delicious!!!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

While the cottages were clean, and located beside a pool and playground, the amenities weren't as promised. The internet didn't work for the first three days of our vacation and the hot water wouldn't work on day 4. We told the owner, who told us the hot water tank was very small and we should shower in the tiny shower stalls by the pool. We checked out early and stayed at a hotel the duration of our time in PEI. We wouldn't recommend this for a family.

“Thank you so much for making our trip truly memorable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Thank you for everything! This was truly the best place we have stayed in for the two weeks we travelled thrrough out Nova Scotia and PEI. The cottage was great! Very clean and the furniture and appliances all new. The bed was the most confortable bed I have ever sleep in! Location is great as well, only 20 minutes to the NFL ferry between Wood Islands, PEI and Caribou, NS. It was close to Montague for shopping and dining out. It was extremely quite and peaceful. We also enjoyed kayaking and upon our return we treated to a "cup of chowder" (Thanks Lisa!) Dean and Lisa were more than friendly and helpful. (Thanks again Dean for the Lobster Pot! Our best meal there as well) We loved our time there and hope to return some day. Thank you so much again.

“Just loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

person found this review helpful

What I liked:

-Completely renovated about five years ago
-Very friendly owners
-Grounds are impeccably groomed and wide
-Very clean, deep and big heated pool
-Great playground for children (2 swings for infants, two for older children, 2 ring swings, 2 slides, and 2 small houses under swings)
-Soccer cones and ball
-Kayaks and life jackets for free
-Firepit that owners gladly stack up with firewood
-BBQs for every cottage
-Firepit surrounded by nice benches (no need to drag chairs)
-Nice furnishings (leather-like couch was a bit droopy in the middle, though)
-Curtains that covered the windows quite well (great for young children who go to bed early)
-Ceiling fan in main room (dining, kitchen) if you don't do well with air conditioning
-Air conditioning unit
-Quiet!
-Subtle fence (not really noticeable) at border of water for safety
-Laundry facility
-Great kitchen area that had everything you could ever need to prepare a meal
-A coffee machine that made a full twelve cups of coffee and not one of those two-cups ones
-Fantastic bathroom (in size and choice of furnishings)
-Lord and Mayfair conditioning shampoo, hydrating lotion and soaps as toiletries
-They even didn't skimp out on the quality of the paper towels!!!

What needs improvement:

-Would have loved to have the typical bowls for cereal (they had shallow, wider ones)
-The two bedrooms were a little narrow (about 18 to 24 inches on each side of the bed)
-On a bay of some sort, so get yourself a bottle of bug repellent because they can be ferocious at certain periods of the day

“wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Ocean Acres is located in a gorgeous spot! The cabins are quiet, immaculate and comfortable. The owners, Dean and Lisa, were welcoming and very accommodating...they even provided all of the necessities for cooking, and eating, our live lobsters. The view from the cabins is unspoiled...a huge lawn running up to a river, with a forrested area on the opposite side of the water. There is a swimming pool and a very nice kid's play structure. The kitchen was well-equiped and clean, the beds were comfy and the ambiance fantastic. During our visit to PEI, we stayed at four different motel/hotels and this one was by far the best; we wished that we had spent our entire visit here. We stayed 3 nights...and at night Dean lit the fire pit and the guests were welcome to join in and enjoy the evening. There is live lobster available nearby and it was the BEST we had on the island and so much more affordable than in a restaurant. We really enjoyed Brehault's restaurant which is a short drive away and is a locals spot, nothing fancy, but good coffee shop food. The rest of the food on PEI was a huge disappointment and we were there for 2 weeks! Do yourself a favor and stay at Ocean Acres.
