“Nice Family Vacation”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

This is a lovely, homey, campy sort of place which is economic and fun to take children for a summer vacation. The cottages are cozy and the atmosphere is very caring. The people who run the place act just like they are part of your family. It is close to a drive-in theater, beaches, etc.

I just came back from a week at Island Life and am so pleased we stayed there.

Our cabin was simple but functional and clean. The Wifi wasn't working while we were there, which didn't bother us because we were there to unplug anyway. There is a bonfire every night and the owners are so kind. If you need anything (ketchup, sugar, etc.) they are happy to provide. Also, our cabin had VHS and not DVD as advertised, but again, we didn't mind.

It is about a 20 minute drive from Charlottetown with nothing around it, so a car is essential and you do have to drive to the beach (which we knew when we booked).

The single cabins are doubles though and the walls are a little thin, so just something to be mindful of if you have kids or are a light sleeper. But there is a drive in nearby, great restaurants, beaches, etc. And you are only about 30 minutes from Cavendish.

It was a wonderful, relaxing vacation and a great value. So happy we stayed there and would do it again.

We required a central place to have a family reunion on PEI. Close to the City center, water, beaches. Island Life Cottages was chosen. The best things in life should be easy. Simple comes to mind. The cottages are clean and tidy. Comfortable. Simple. The property is spacious. The pool is warm and handy. One day the beach the next the pool. Simple. BBQ on the deck. Camp fire each night. The owners are always present and ready to help. Need a pass for the park and they have one to use. Life was once simpler and spending time at ILC reminds one to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. Thanks for the best relaxing time.

Locstion is handy Brackley beach, nice pool, cottages are rundown and old...racoons will visit you on your step! Lots of lawn for kids to run around ...beautiful horse you can pet (friendly).. Area where everyone can gather....Pool looks nice (I didnt use) ... You do not get value for the cost to stay there..owners are very nice

My wife and I spent a week at Island life cottages last year, I have to say we had a great time, the cottages are very cozy, and are in a great location, You are centeraly located so that you can tour around the Island ans still come back without feeling out of the way, The grounds are quiet and clean, and the owners make you feel like family.. I highly recomend Island life cottages to anyone looking for a home away from home... and we are planning on going there again this summer..

Had a great stay. Great friendly owners. Very helpful with local information and suggestions. Spent 4 nights in #5 during the last week of August. #5 has been recently updates. It was big enough for a family of 4, very clean, nice deck and the beds were comfortable doubles There was a big play area infront of the cabins with lots of little kid friendly stuff. Kitchen has all you need for family cooking. Pool was heated to a comfortable temperature.
Stars at night were amazing
My 12 yr old complained that satellite tv did not get the Disney channel and that her ipod could not get the wifi. My laptop worked fine.
Had a good stay. Definitly a kid friendly place.

I spent a couple of days at the cottage and it was awesome! The place and cottage is ideal if you want a quiet and peaceful holiday! The cottage is clean and Hughie, the owner, lives there and I really appreciated that he was available 24/7! Do try to get the log cabin, it is beautiful and kids would love it because of its loft! I highly recommend these cottages more so because Hughie, Tammy and their team are wonderful and make you feel very at home! Also, another bonus is the petting farm with Bonny Blue a very affectionate horse and other animals! I will definitely go back again!
