“A home away from home”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Fantastic get away, friendly staff who can't do enough for you. Even have activities for rainy days. Pools was a delight. Right in the middle of the best PEI has to offer. Third time we've stayed here. Love it!

Room Tip: Ask for the newest built cottages. They have the most amenities for a few more dollars.

Our family spent 3 nights at fairways cottages for our first PEI family vacation. The cottages are located near all Cavendish attractions, the park pass allowed us to explore all over Cavendish beach. The cottage itself was clean, included every thing a young family needs and my kids really enjoyed the AM crafts with the staff. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend fairways cottages.

Thank you so much, Christina, for your lovely review. We're very glad you enjoyed what is hopefully the first of many trips to visit PEI. And we loved having the kids at Arts and Crafts, too. It's honestly the staff's favorite time of day, lol.
Have a great summer!

My husband and vacationed at Fairways for 5 nights, and it was fantastic. The cottage was spotless, comfortable, conveniently located, and the staff were knowledgeable about cavendish and so helpful. So many on site amenities.
We will definitely be back! Thanks so much.

This was my second time staying at Fairways Cottages and once again we had a thoroughly great time. We stayed for four nights in July 2013 in Cottage 19. My positives:
- Kids LOVED the heated pool
- Very comfy beds and furniture with extra bedding and pillows
- Well stocked kitchen (including ice cubes ready to go when we got there)
- Great and friendly service from every staff we dealt with
- Not on the beach but very close to all the action
- Loved that the cottage came with a pass for the beach. Terrific!!
- Enjoyed the extra amenities on the grounds - Fire pits, basketball, volleyball, soccer, horseshoes...we tried them all.
- Wifi is a must - was great that I could get it at the pool too. While my kids swam, I was able to enjoy the shade of the gazebo and do some surfing of my own. ;)
** I could go on and on **

Negatives:
- I would have liked to have seen more room for toiletries in the bathroom. A pedestal sink is not very practical.
- A laminated sheet above the garbage cans explaining what each of the cans were for would be a great help. Love that PEI has a great system for recycling / waste and compost but being from NB, I wasn't sure what was to go in each container
** Pretty minor negatives but would be easy improvements **

Thanks again. Hope to be back soon.

Thank you, Shelley, for that lovely- and helpful!- review. We're very glad that you got the opportunity to try out all we had to offer. And thank you, sincerely, for the suggestions. We have tried the page on the wall, but for some reason, they keep being torn down. Thanks to your suggestion, there is talk, as a go forward, about putting an extra page in the Cottage Directory that is in every cottage explaining the garbage. We're still exploring the pros and cons of that vs continuing to try and put them on the walls.
So yes, thank you, and we definitely look forward to hosting you and your family again!

Our family gathered there for our parents 50th anniversary. They chose pei because it was the location of their honeymoon, and they spent the year before researching and visiting cottage sites in cavendish. It was a hard choice, but the picked fairways for location, room size and availability. There were 4 generations, ages 1 to 73. All had a wonderful time. everything worked and was clean. (hot and cold taps were reversed but it was a fun conversation piece ). Staff very friendly and helpful, and shops, restaurants, beaches, attractions are all very close. Allot if family members saud they were definetly returning. Highly recommended. Thanks Sandy and Scott and Family !

We stayed two nights at Fairway Cottages and would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Cavendish area, Sandi Lowther, the owner, was such a nice lady and went out of her way to accomodate any request. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, delicious chocolates and a fully packed picnic basket for a snack on the patio or the beach. Cabin 23 was a delightful home away from home and included wverything we needed, Housekeeping was meticulous!! We found the bed very comfortable and had a wonderful restful sleep while breathing in the salty tang of the nearby beach. Unfortunmately we did not have time to enjoy the carriage ride on the beach but will make it a priority next time. We did enjoy a delicious meal at the Olde Glasgow Mill Restaurant. the chef would stand toe to toe with any "big city" restaurant chef. WE also enjoyed a fabulous lobster supper at Fishermans Wharf ( great value with a 60 ft salad bar!!) and a quick lunch at Chex Yolande which was good home style cooking. On our last evening there Mother Nature supplied a spectacular island sunset to say goodbye. Thank you Sandi. We will definitely return!!.
