Why Choose Prince Edward Island Vacation Rentals?

Prince Edward Island may be the smallest Canadian province but it has many qualities that make it a desirable year round tourist destination. The famous 8 mile Confederation Bridge, provides easy access to PEI by car from the province of New Brunswick. Known for its outstanding natural beauty, the "Gentle Island" as it is sometimes called, is characterized by rolling hills, vivid colors, red sandstone cliffs, wet lands, forests and miles of sandy beaches. This diverse landscape provides homes for a wide variety of plants and animals as well as the soil which grows its famous potatoes with their unique flavor.

Charlottetown, the provincial capital of PEI and the birthplace of confederation, is a charming seaside town which comes alive in the summer with visitors from all over the globe. Here there are many historic sites, as well as restaurants, shops and nightlife.  Imagine sight seeing all day and then returning to your very own home away from home. Choose from vacation rentals in quiet, historic neighborhoods, apartments and suites in restored century old Victorian buildings, or charming cottages. Rent from an owner instead of paying for an expensive hotel and bring the whole family for an affordable PEI vacation.

The classic novel, Anne of Green Gables, written by Lucy Maud Montgomery in the late Victorian era, was inspired by this beautiful landscape. It was her childhood home in Cavendish, near the province's north coast, that was the setting for her famous Anne books. Cavendish naturally has become a famous holiday destination and is also home to Avonlea village, now a historical amusement park. Anne is so popular in Japan that special charter flights bring Japanese tourists to Charlottetown so they can enjoy all the Anne of Green Gables attractions. Other well known attributes of Cavendish include the Cavendish Boardwalk, Cavendish Red Trolley and Cavendish Beach in Prince Edward Island National Park, with its 40 kilometer coastline of pristine white sand beaches. Tourists and locals alike enjoy many activities in this area including biking, swimming, boating, hiking, bird-watching, golfing, museum-visiting and shopping. In Cavendish and the surrounding areas called "Anne's Land" you can stay in a waterfront vacation home or beach cottages close to all attractions and yet with your own private place to retreat to in the evening.

PEI is famous for its oysters and lobsters, and a visit to one of the many quaint fishing villages is a must.

Summerside, located just 5 miles from Confederation Bridge is a perfect location for those who seek a quiet Atlantic vacation away from the madding crowds.

Another great Prince Edward Island vacation spot is Belfast, known for the Belfast Highland Greens golf course. Belfast also boasts a historic parish church built in 1824 by Sir Christopher Wren, as well as Mini Woolen Mills, and many art studios and pottery shops. Here you can find a vacation cottage on a sandy beach, or other holiday homes to rent directly from the owner.

Orwell is another popular PEI holiday location with the big draw being the Orwell Corner Historic Village, a site restored to late nineteenth century buildings and furnished with artifacts from the Provincial Collection.
Witness the blacksmith at work, or stroll through the gardens and have a picnic outside the old schoolhouse or by a scenic spot overlooking the beautiful Orwell Bay. Orwell is also well known for its Wednesday night ceilidhs at the community hall.

In summary are many Prince Edward Island vacation rentals to choose from, which give you plenty of room for family and friends while you experience the high points of this magical island.
