Beach House

The Dunes at Darnley Basin


The Dunes is a beautiful summer getaway where you can enjoy the pleasures of a relaxing island vacation. The Dunes is a modern beach house located on a peninsula along the north shore of Prince Edward Island between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Darnley Basin. The beach house is perfect for couples or families. It can accommodate up to seven people but is ideal for families of four to six members. The 900 square foot home features a tongue and groove knotty pine interior with open vaulted ceilings in the living room, dining room and kitchen. Outside, there  is  a  wrap  around deck, and a big outdoor fireplace with enough Adirondack


chairs so that everyone can enjoy the spectacular sunsets.

The Living Area


The well-lit living and dining rooms look out over the large deck to the Darnley Basin through two full-size sliding patio doors and a large picture window. The tastefully decorated room features a large comfortable sectional sofa, two leather club chairs and an entertainment cabinet for the DVD player, CD player and television. An assortment of board games can be found cleverly stored inside the coffee table. The dining room table with its bench seating easily accommodates six people.  There  are  also  two bar  stools at the end of the countertop to provide additional seating if you happen to have a house full of cottage guests you've invited to stay for dinner. 


The Kitchen


When it comes to preparing meals, you'll find everything you need in the modern well-equipped kitchen. Quality appliances include a ceramic cooktop stove, side by side refrigerator with ice and filtered water in the door, a built-in dishwasher and a microwave oven. Small appliances include a coffee maker, toaster, pancake griddle, slow cooker, electric kettle, coffee grinder, blender, mixer and an electric can opener. 

There are plenty of dishes for baking; even a bread maker for those who wish to bake fresh bread or dinner rolls.

The Bedrooms


There are two comfortable bedrooms. The master bedroom features a queen size pine sleigh bed and the second bedroom has bunk beds that can sleep three children or two adults (double lower and twin upper). The bedrooms have double closets and storage for your clothes and personal items.  The master bedroom also has an armoire and dressing table. There is a four piece bathroom, laundry room and plenty of additional storage in the foyer closet. Extra bed linens, quilts, spare  pillows and towels  can  be found in the bedroom closets or in the well-stocked linen closet.


The Deck & Yard


The large wrap-around deck offers superb views of the basin and the sunsets over Hog Island and Proffit's Point. Comfortable, quality outdoor furniture makes relaxing outdoors even more enjoyable. For those who like to grill or cook fresh lobster, there is a large stainless steel propane barbecue and propane-fired lobster pot. There is also an outdoor fireplace; an ideal way to end a perfect day. For those who are a little more active, there is a horseshoe pitch and a bocce set can be found in the closet in the foyer. In the storage shed, you will find our beach wagon, equipped with all the essentials for a day on the north shore beaches.  You will find a beach  blanket, beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, a Frisbee, some beach toys for the kids, and a couple of kites for the kid in you.
