A cottage with two bedrooms for my daughter and I to stay there on August 5th and 6th. I flew to Moncton, NB on July 28th from Vancouver, BC. We phoned the cottages on the 4th... More

I am a frequent contributor to TripAdvisor and a world traveler. In my 416 prior reviews, I have given 4 "Terrible" ratings (3 of them were restaurants where disasters pretty much occurred and 1 was for a major city hotel that charged $399/night and was a time warp) so I do not give this rating lightly. I am all about... More

This is really just one up from camping for me. Although Kevin was very pleasant and helpful he seems flat out trying to run everything virtually on his own (doing refurbs and repairs) . In the middle of high season everything looks unfinished and unkempt and day to day standards seem to suffer. This spot is prime real estate and... More

Family arrived only to see cabin's that are in terrible condition. There was a strong smell off urine even with all the windows open it didn't help. Decided to sleep 1 night since it was late when we arrived. In the mourning we were all sick and sore throats shame on P.E.I for letting this place exist

Reserved two nights here at Cavendish by the Sea. Wished I had booked another night, but we had other business going on in Charlottetown later on. Cottage had everything we needed. Three beds, stove, fridge, and TV which we did not watch much off. Cavendish had too many attractions and things to do instead of watching TV ( Close to... More

Stayed there late July for 4 nights. Was very disappointed in the cabins. The cabins weer not the cleanest, we gave them a cleaning to freshen them up. There was food in the fridge from the last visitors which should have been removed. Refrigerator didn't work properly, water kept leaking out on to the floor. Mentioned it to the owner... More
