Our family rented a two bedroom cottage for a week in July. The cottage wasn't large, but it was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The bathroom had been recently renovated and the living area had a flat screen TV. There were a few nice extras as well (bed linen, towels, bath soap) which are often missing from cottages.
The most memorable feature of the cottage is the view over the water, which is absolutely gorgeous. The photos simply can't do it justice. Each cottage faces the bay and has a little porch and a picnic table, so it's possible to spend all evening just admiring the view. It's a picture that we will remember for a long time.
The property offers some helpful services like an excellent laundryroom, books and games for borrowing, and firewood for sale. One particularly nice feature is the laundry service for towels, offered twice a week. There are also some diversions for the kids such as a sandbox and a play structure, and other kids in the various cottages to play with.
The cottages are situated on a bay, about 8 minutes north of Summerside. The water is too shallow for swimming but there are several nice beaches within an easy drive. It's a very quiet and peaceful location, yet only a few minutes from the town, which provides good shopping, restaurants and some good evening shows. Another great feature of the location is proximity to the Confederation Trail, which is great for biking.
The owners are very friendly and helpful. They've created a warm atmosphere which is very welcoming. I would highly recommend Shurman's Shore Waterfront Cottages.
