Guest Comments : Summer House
What an absolute heaven to have such a fully-equipped, comfortable home to stay in! We thank you for all your thoughtfulness in meeting all our needs while visiting PEI. We even used some of the fallen apples to make apple crisp one evening, and apple sauce. We love your island, with all the friendly, helpful people. Would love to repay your kindness; you’re welcome to visit in Illinois any time!

Your very special Summer House made our sister and daughter trip the best ever!
We all enjoyed immensely the use of your Summer House and Chalet. As you are aware, we had family from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and from Ottawa, Kingston, and Fredericton come together to vacation on the Island. The weather was magnificent and your facilities exceptional. Everyone loved their time here and will long remember the occasion, I’m sure. It was our first time in the Stanley Bridge/Cavendish area…Your area offers much for the tourist. We beached, golfed, shopped, and went deep sea fishing—amongst other things.
Thank you, Ann and Rory, for your visits to see us and inquire how we were making out. You have done a wonderful job creating Dunescape. Keep up the good work!

Quelle merveilleuse maison de bond de mer! Ici j’ai déguste mon café avec comme toute de fond l’océan et ses dunes de sable. J’espère y revenir pour me laisser bercer par les douces brises des nuits de Septembre!
We have had a terrific time here in beautiful P.E.I., and have truly enjoyed this elegant and comfortable house. When our friends suggested we vacation in P.E.I., we were really excited -- neither of us had been east of Montreal here in Canada. In any event, we shared great times, good weather (yeah!), tasty meals, and fabulous sunsets. Made lots of wonderful memories to take back to Toronto. Best of luck with everything, and we hope to return…
P.S. Glad I brought my good bike! Great cycling on 258. Thanks for the shed for storage.
Guest Comments: Chalet and Cottage
We cannot believe that our week on your beautiful island has come to an end. We had an eventful week, and the weather was just about perfect. We could not have picked a more perfect spot to call ‘home’ for a week. Your chalet is just the place to spend a relaxing vacation. The gentle breeze, the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, the hum of the occasional boat, the sounds of birds in the morning, all add to the charm of your location.
We thank you for your hospitality. Our vacation has been incredible and we will think fondly of our time here. Thanks for everything.

Thank you for a wonderful retreat! The chalet and area are perfect for our annual ‘east coast’ vacation. Thankfully, our regular cottage was booked, otherwise we may never have found Dunescape. Your warm hospitality and inviting welcome make this ‘piece of heaven’ stand apart from other locations in the area. (The stainless steel Barbeque on the deck didn’t hurt either!!!) We look forward to next year, and will be sure to let our friends in on the secret. Thanks again,
Our third holiday in PEI, first at Dunescape. Four star accommodations, great deck, great location, great weather! Thanks! (Parents)
P.S. I LOVE how I could have my own space in the loft and get away from my parents. I love the deep closet…I love this chalet! (Son)

Our first trip to PEI could not have been better! Your cottage provided a wonderful escape from the monotony of everyday life. From exploring the dunes to para-sailing, from dinner theatres to kayaking, we have had a very memorable experience.
Where to begin…
We all had a beautiful week in a nice, clean, comfortable home. Mornings were spent reading on the deck, afternoons spent on Brackley Beach… Deep Sea Fishing in Stanhope…What memories!
Our 7-year old daughter perched in her loft sleeping in every morning; that alone is a holiday-maker! We hope everyone leaves this wonderful place as happy and relaxed as we are!
Enjoyed a great week at your chalet with our 2 kids. Stanley Bridge was a great locale. With the beach and attractions in Cavendish, and only 20 minutes to Summerside and Charlottetown, everything was close by. The kids loved the green space, the view of the ocean (and the boats!), and the deck. We enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts, and loved the chalet. We especially appreciated some nice touches – the BBQ, nice TV and satellite, and the park pass.
Our 7th year of vacationing on P.E.I. was made more enjoyable by our stay at Dunescape Chalet. The cottage was very comfortable and the view was incredible. We lucked out with great weather the entire week. We have some great memories from this week’s worth of fun: golf at Red Sands, North Cape and the windmills, exploring Charlottetown, fox sighting near the cabin, and watching an eagle soar outside the PEI Preserve Restaurant window (Café on the Clyde) during our dinner there, (!) and the daily parade of fishing boats. Thanks for everything.

What a wonderful week! The weather was great! Our hosts were very friendly and we felt very welcomed! We have been coming to the Island for a number of years now and our children have indicated that this is the best cottage they have ever been to! The cottage is very tastefully decorated and you feel at home. Very relaxing week! Thank you!
P.S. We definitely want to come back next summer!
“When you come upon a magic place…listen.” One of my favourite quotes and it most certainly applies to Dunescape Chalet. We have stayed in many places in the area, but this is by far and away the very best. Thank you to the Francis family for a wonderful stay. Now comes the hard part- and that’s leaving. We shall return!
We truly enjoyed this “luxurious” long weekend at Dunescape – among the 5 essential elements: water, earth, wood, fire, and fresh air! Our bodies, psyches, minds and souls have been generously nourished. We have to return.
Well, we truly gained an appreciation for Hurricane\tropical storm Ivan. Yet, despite the wind and weather, we still had a relaxing, if not invigorating, time. There were many beautiful species of birds, wildlife, and growing things, plus the natural spectacle of landscape to appreciate, so who cares about the weather! There is a lovely family of foxes just behind, all manner of flickers, blue jays, lark, and bunting.
The chalet is a perfect place from which to base sightseeing, nature walks, or just reading, relaxing, or movie watching. Well equipped, tastefully decorated, and comfortable, we enjoyed our opportunity to be here. We also thank you for your hospitality and welcome. We look forward to our return!
