Family fun at the shore
Aft rents Sun-Sun mostly in high season. Check for a custom quote. Aft cottage is a two storey cape cod style home and rests 1000 feet from a very large clean deep red and white sandy beach. The cottage faces the Northumberland Strait on the southernmost tip of PEI with the warmer waters and calmest seas on the island. We have 3 cottages on 20 acres and a completely private lane. If you love the beach, you will be right at home here. There are 4 changes in the tide every day . At high tide you can swim or walk along the shore and search for sea glass and other treasures. When the tide is low you can swim, and take advantage of all the sea life on the sandbars and tide-pools. You can walk for miles on the bare sandbars at low tide and dig some bar clams. There are plenty of chaise loungers, small wooden tables, and umbrellas on the beach to catch some shade on hot afternoons.

Aft cottage is a 3 bedroom cape cod style home with an open concept living/dining rooms. Two bedrooms have a double bed, and the third bedroom has a single over double bunk-bed. We have a single blow-up mattress for any extra guests. A view of the ocean from all points of the south side of the cottage. We have a 3.5 star Canada Select Rating.

We are 1 km from Plough Through The Waves visitor information center with a liquor outlet and shops. Service stations, banking institutions, and grocery stores are located in Montague, a 15 minute drive North. Two golf courses are within 15 minutes.

Cottage Review
We loved our stay at the cottage. We had our family of six. The beach was wonderful, nice big yard and a very clean cottage. Darryl was a fabulous host. He helped us have a fabulous fresh lobster dinner. We hope to return for a longer stay sometime.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful property and experience!!
We loved everything about our visit. The home had ample room for our party of 6 - and was stocked with everything we could possibly need. Ocean views are beautiful, took in a morning sunrise on our last day. Love that the confederation rail trail is nearby and we did a long bike trip thru the beautiful secluded countryside. Darryl is a great host, there to help with whatever you need and always a friendly chat in the few times we met. Loved all the firewood, and had campfires outside and woodstove cranking inside on cold evenings. Very cozy.

5/5 Excellent

We can honestly say that this is one of the best cottages we have stayed at. It not far from the ferry and only a short walk to the beach. The hospitality was so appreciate 💙 We recommend this place to anyone.

5/5 Excellent

Quiet and homey
My little family and I enjoyed our stay at Aft house. Darryl was a great host and made sure we were comfortable. There is a short little walk to the ocean - minutes long. The weather was great and there was so much to do and see! Highly rate our stay!
