Description of the Murray Harbour vacation home rental
Recently totally renovated and tastefully decorated home in the middle of the quiet, very small, picturesque fishing village of Murray Harbour. No strip malls or development here, just peace and quiet, little traffic and friendly people.

High speed internet and cable TV.

King size bed in bedroom, double bed in another room , plus an inflatable double bed. Large open kitchen, dining and living area with additional sitting/tv room off to the side. 3 comfortable couches. About 1200 sq. ft.

Everything is on one floor and there is a ramp to the front porch.

You can walk everywhere in town including a library with internet access, marina, post office, gas station, very nice local restaurant, the Confederation Trail and antique stores. The sandy beach at Beach Point is 2 miles, plus many other beaches nearby. Kayaks or canoes can be launched in town if desired.

Southern Kings is probably the best birding area in PEI, several very well known areas close by, including the town of Murray Harbour and nearby Murray River.

This is a beautiful area for biking - fields, along the harbour, and ocean. The Northumberland Strait and the coastal road are only a mile away.

Sorry, owner is allergic so no pets or smoking.

Saturday is changeover day.

Free long distance calling.

Sheets and towels included.

There is a general store with basic groceries plus many other things, and there are large supermarkets with a very good selection of everything including seafood and other stores in Montague, 20 minutes away.

Tthe general store has a decent selection of DVD's.

Golf, antiquing, a bird sanctuary, seaplane flights all nearby. Close to the world class golfing (Crowbush Dundarave and Brudenell) and fine dining at Brudenell Georgetown and Montague.

Serene, Picturesque, Relaxing

Wonderful home. Alan was helpful when we arrived to get us settled. House had all the comforts. Only "non-amazing" thing was the sofa in the TV room - a bit uncomfortable and not conducive to afternoon napping - found the bed and other couch great for reading or napping. Thank you Paul.

Owner's reply:

I am glad you enjoyed your stay sirpa and thanks for the input re comfortableess, it is one of my major concerns both personally and for guests.

Sunshine PEI

July 23, 2012

We were a party of three, 2 adults and a teen-ager. We had a good time in the sunshine and on the beach. The cottage lived up to our expectations with spacious living room, master bedroom as well as the kitchen. We also discovered beachs such as Basin Head and Georgetown. I was also very satisfied for the use of the washer and dryer. He probably would have liked on option, such as the local news with the TV set. We also had a treat from the neighbour behind the cottage, our strawberry cake was excellent.

Owner's reply:

Perhaps if people seem to want it we will get cable tv next year, there is no broadcast tv in the area. We felt most would prefer internet, perhaps next year we will get both.

This is the first time my wife and I have booked a cottage through Vacation Home Rentals; and we could not have been happier with the cottage and location. We were looking for a quiet and peaceful vacation away from the touristy part of the island. The cottage was just as we imagined it based on the information and pictures provided by the owner. It was a short drive to a clean and quiet beach and close to many island activities. We spent a couple days driving to the other points of interest on the island and were always happy to see the cottage upon our return. It was super clean and had everything that we needed to have a great vacation (as we cooked and ate fresh seafood just about every night). The local restaurant was a very short walk away and had great food and incredible service We are already planning our next trip to the island and will be contacting Paul to rent the cottage again. Thanks for the great hospitality and the super cottage.

Owner's reply:

Thanks, I love it when people enjoy the area as much as I do!

An absolutely amazing visit to PEI based out of this comfortable, tastefully decorated home away from home was a dream for us. Quiet, quaint and perfectly suited to us. The neighbourhood restaurant, Brehaut's was a short walk with terrific food and friendly, helpful staff. We put approximately 1500 km on our rental car and were able to see everything we wanted from our base at Murray River. The beaches, ocean drives and even the back roads were scenic. The pride shown in the yard care and the cleanliness of every neighbourhood stood out as a highlight. No honking horns, only one siren in a whole week, just a comfortable calm and tranquill place to visit. Everyone has time for everyone! We will be back, you can count on it!!

Great spot for a quiet holiday.

August 11, 2011

This is a great spot if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. Very quiet little town right next to the harbour with only 1 restaurant, 1 grocery/hareware store, 1 gas station, a library and a post office. It is 30min from the ferry to Nova Scotia for day trips, 10min from Murray River were there are a few more shops and a tour boat that goes out in the harbour and we found several fresh water fishing resevoirs and streams that are within 45min and we caught up to 10lb Rainbow Trout on fly rods. The house was very clean and has all the gear you could possibly need. The beds are good and all the appliances are up to date. No issues with anything but nowhere to put the garbage bags, only a compost bin was available at the time that we were there. The owner and the people they have managing the rental house are great, We happened to have a flight that was canceled while we were traveling in the US and it was near where the owner lives. When I was talking to the owner to make other arrangement for checking in, he actually offered to let our party of 6 stay at his home in the US! We need more people like this in this world!!!!. The manager did not bother us at all during our stay, as a mater a fact we never even met the man. As we arrived late in the night, keys were left for us and we just locker the keys in the house when we left. This was the easiest and most pleasureable rental I have ever experienced and will be sure to return to this house in the future.

Fall Visit

A great place to stay, and while it takes some time to adjust to the slower pace of life, well worth it. Very nice house with top quality finishing, in a nice friendly village. Highly rated restaurant a few blocks away with great fish fish chowder. Short drives to many other destinations, including some prestine beaches. About 1 hour from the capital. Owner and local managers are great guys.

Very Relaxing

As this was my first time in PEI, I had no idea what to expect from Murray Harbor and the rental, but was completely delighted to find a small, clean, beautifully renovated home in a picturesque fishing village. From the house it's a short walk to Brehaut's (a fantastic local restaurant with a great seafood chowder and homemade desserts), Butler's (a convenient general store) and a local library with new computers and speedy internet access. Point Prim and Guernsey Cove were local highlights. The people who manage the property were wonderfully helpful and welcoming-- all in all it's an experience I plan to repeat next summer.

Comfortable house in a charming fishing village

August 8, 2010

My husband and I chilled out for almost a week in this nicely renovated quaint house in Murray Harbour, PEI. On the plus side: single storey heritage home, comfortable accommodations, modern kitchen with everything we needed to make ourselves at home. Murray Harbour itself is a charming village and has a great, local diner-style restaurant. We were close to bike paths, beaches and lighthouses on the Eastern side of PEI. The Point Prim lighthouse was a highlight. The location is about 45 minutes from Charlottetown and an hour from the tourist zoo and beaches of Cavendish. The only downside (depending on what you're looking for) is that the eastern side of PEI is much less developed for tourism than the centre of the island. Good restaurants were a bit tricky to find, though Charlottetown has lots to offer.
