|Champagne Vista Reviews and Comments
What a lovely spot to relax in. We have had a week of bliss and
exploration. Only one suggestion… don’t tell anyone
Outstanding ! Marie & Ted Gilchrist Brockville, Ontario
Review Submitted August 16, 2011 Date of Stay July 16, 2011 If you are looking for a retreat ... away from all the hustle and bustle of the life you are trying so hard to get away from .... then this is the place for you ! The red cliffs and the sound of the surf gives you the peace you have been looking for. Climb down the cliff, which is just seconds away from the cottage, and a whole new world opens up to you ! Walk East about 1.3 km and you will find a sandy beach all to yourself ... the only way to get there is to walk the rocks. If you don't feel like walking then just climb down onto the red rocks and look for sea glass and all kinds of interesting rocks and stones. The Ocean will give you such a show during the days and evenings it decides to come crashing to shore ... breathtaking is all I can say. The cottage is GORGEOUS inside and you certainly lack for NOTHING once you arrive ! The bed is so comfortable and you can either sit in bed and look at the Ocean or you can sit on the deck off the bedroom and watch and listen to the Ocean. Pat, who looks after the place for Mary and Derrick looked after us like an old mother hen ... she was great ! When you need groceries you just drive 10 minutes down the road to Souris and there you will find the same stock of what you would have in your own town or city ... except the people are much more friendly. There is a drug store as well as a small 16 bed hospital ! Don't just take my word for it ... you MUST ... visit Champagne Vista ... in fact when we arrived there was a cold bottle of Champagne waiting for us ... so true to the name ! Once again ... thanks so much to you Mary and Derrick for opening up your home and allowing us to make your home our home away from home for the month ... Marie & Ted

We had a great week – nothing but relaxation & rest – something
we rarely experience at home. Your home is lovely and we enjoyed
our stay thoroughly. We felt like we were in a 5+ star hotel; your
tastes in decorating are exquisite. What a wonderful way to spend
our 30th wedding anniversary. Hopefully we’ll soon be able
to join you up here on PEI (we bought land near Victoria and hope
to build soon). It was great to experience a different part of
the island. Thanks again for such a charming and hospitable environs.

“Champagne Vista” the name matches the spot. Wonderful
location, superb view in a beautiful part of the island.
Ron & Pat
We have surely enjoyed this “Great Escape” and sincerely
thank you for allowing us to experience PEI from a great location.
Your place is tastefully equipped to enjoy an ocean view, starry
nights, the cozy fireplace, and peace and quiet. Who could wish

“Champagne Vista” – certainly a piece of god’s
selected paradise. Yes, it is for the birds that soar over head,
the seals popping their heads out of the surf, beautiful blue herons,
the combination of red sandstone cliff, wonderful wetlands, tides,
miles of spectacular beaches, surreal sunsets and sunrises and
stars galore create a “Magnificent Escape” from everyday
This is a beautiful house with wonderful views, an amazingly well-stocked
kitchen and gracious living space. The location is spectacular.
I absolutely love the Confederation Trail and the scenery. This
has absolutely been one of the most relaxing vacations I ever had.
I would recommend this beautiful house and island to anyone.

Beautiful, peaceful setting. Enjoyed the quietness, the neighboring
beaches, many walks along the water’s edge and the colorful
sunsets. The house was very spacious, tastefully decorated and
allowed us to relax within the house with an amazing view of the
water. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It’s been
a great week!
Todd & Beth
Just a perfect week in this beautiful, tranquil house. From the
lovely sunrises, to the idyllic beach days to the spectacular sunsets,
this place lives up to its “Champagne Vista” name.
We’ve left our favorite mussel recipe in the book!

Now that my wife and I are retired (after 40+ years in Health
Care) we decided to take 2 ½ months to tour Canada and reconnect
with family and friends. This stop over (Champagne Vista) is our
furthest driving point from home – about 10,000 km from Victoria.
After such a long drive, it was a delicious pleasure to hang out
here for a week to “veg-out” and tour the island at
our leisure. The home and its surroundings are superb – an
oasis for true eastern potentates and for us “quasi” potentates
from the west. Thanks for affording us the opportunity.
A hint for future visitors: after having toured the entire island,
we found the PEI National Park (Greenwich) behind St. Peters to
be one of the best and our favorite and it is close to home.
A Great week – Thank you!
Sean & Jennifer
Both Sean and I had a wonderful “Champagne Vista” experience
for our honeymoon. We enjoyed many sights and sounds of PEI and
the surrounding area, including East Point Lighthouse, North Lake
Harbour and the Greenwich National Park & trails. However,
our most enjoyed experience was out front at the rocks and water.
The cottage provided a romantic and cozy experience.
Rick & Heather
We had a very relaxing week at the Champagne Vista. It is a beautiful
beach house in the perfect location. It was our first time in PEI
and we had a wonderful time. The weather couldn’t have been
better and we enjoyed walking along the rocks by the ocean.
Thank you for such a wonderful experience and we are looking forward
to coming back next summer.

Our entire family had a wonderful time staying in your beautiful
home. PEI is beautiful and well worth the trip. The cliffs and
beaches captured us while the kids especially enjoyed claming and
seeing a 700 lb tuna. Thanks for the memories.
Mark, Lori, Libby & Tommy
My 3 month old son met his uncles for the first time in this home.
What a beautiful place, with a spectacular view. Thank you for
the little things like slippers by the back door.
Juli, Dean and Aiden
A million thank you’s for sharing Champagne Vista! You have
created a beautiful piece of paradise on PEI and we truly appreciate
your efforts in providing a welcoming warm homey shagrala to your
guests. Biking St. Peters to Morell is a special memory along with
playing golf at Crowbush, Dundarave and Brudenell Golf Courses.
Marcea & Ron
Your island retreat was everything we imagined and so much more!
Exquisite! Biking on Confederation trail and the first journey
down the cow-path entry were highlights. The sunsets and stars
We’ve stayed many places worldwide and never experienced
such a lovely, well-stocked abode. Thank you so much for your thoughtful
attention to details!
Bob & Lydia
This is a beautiful house with a wonderful view. It was a great
home base as we toured PEI. We have had a relaxing week, during
which we all had the opportunity to experience island life. What
a difference PACE that we are use to!
St. Margaret’s Lobster Supper – Great food! Should
not be missed
Brent, Leanne & family
Thank you for such a great relaxing vacation. The island is so
fun to explore, but your house is what made this trip so fantastic!
Terra & Joe
Do not miss the amazing sunsets or the walks along the buffs!
The ocean was different every day and the stars at night are unbelievable!
