About Lisa MacEwen

My name is Lisa MacEwen and this land has been in my family for over 200 years. I grew up down the road and this property was the site of a Homestead, built in 1805, by my Great Great Grandparents and later lived in by my Great Aunt Elizabeth MacEwen.

I live in Toronto with my 2 children. I built this home in 2012 to enjoy a little peace of heaven for ourselves each year for several weeks in the summer.

Lisa MacEwen purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Lisa MacEwen chose Queens County

This is a special place with some of the oldest Chestnut and Linden trees in PEI, dating back to 1914, (which my Great Uncle brought back from California, to plant, before he headed of the WW1, where he was MIA and never came home. His memorial is at Vimy Ridge; France).

After unsuccessful attempts to save the old Homestead, I decided to demolish it and built a brand new modern, modest but spacious and cozy home. I was able to save some pieces from the old Homestead that were incorporated in the decor and construction to give this new place some traditional character. Although I own other waterfront land on the Westriver, I chose to build here, as this land has a special, tranquil and peaceful energy to it, with a view! Every time I come home here, I don't want to leave!

What makes this bungalow unique

The water on the South Shore is warmer and safer than the tourist popular Northshore. Canoe Cove, 5 minutes away, is one of the most popular south shore beaches known for its safe water, tide pools and red cliffs. You can also have you own private access to the West River in front of the property where you can explore by digging clams, oysters and mussels. The property also has 2 hammocks, 4 adirondack chairs around a fire pit, soceer and volleyball/badminton nets, two tire swings, swing, horseshoe set.

Incredible value! Such a beautiful spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location. So close to the local attractions and things to do. It is also great to come home at the end of the day to such a private and serene setting. The internal amenities are better than my own home; ample bedding, towels, kitchen supplies, everything you need!

Absolutely the best family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our week's vacation and it was honestly hard to leave because we wanted to live in this vacation home forever! We had our family of four and my parents. The lay out of the home was perfect for space, rest, and privacy. The extra bathroom sink/storage area beside the two bedrooms made it perfect for getting ready! We packed way too much as the owner has truly thought of everything you would ever use for everyday living and vacation. There is an abundance of everything (luxury linens, appliances, amazing mattresses and more). The owner has gone above and beyond to ensure that you feel the luxury of a quality updated vacation home but has incorporated the true feeling of home. So many special touches of a beautiful family heritage. We love our house back home and enjoy the private lake but there is just something that is truly peaceful about this vacation home. The location is absolutely perfect! You certainly get the best of both worlds as you have a quiet oasis but are just minutes away from the "PEI highlights". We had to drop off our son to college so we combined our trip into a family holiday. We were telling the international student coordinator from Holland college about our amazing vacation home and he just had to check it out. He was also very impressed and said he was thankful to be able to have this place to recommend to future families. We have already passed on recommendations to our friends and family back home. If we ever get the privilege to stay for a week in PEI again we can't imagine staying anywhere else. It was a blessing and a gift to our entire family to stay at the Westville Villa. We will be forever grateful!

The property is very special with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is sited on the property to get the best views, with large windows that capture the sunrise and a 270 degree view. The cottage is well-equipped and very private.

We enjoyed watching a family of quails and nesting falcons on the property.

The location, 15 minutes from Charlottetown, 10 minutes from 2 golf courses and 10 minutes from Canoe Cove beach makes it a great choice for families, golfers and those wanting access to the theatres and culture offered in Charlottetown.

We found it a perfect location for exploring the north, east and west ends of the Island. It was so nice to return at the end of the day to this peaceful setting. Truly heavenly!

Owner's Response: Peggy, thank you for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your three week stay at Westville. Yes, we seem to annually see a family of quails and of course the falcons. Hope to see you again. Lisa

Excellent rental; secluded with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely three day stay at Westville Vista. It was close to so many site seeing locations and our relaxation time at the home was also enjoyable. We were able to make our own breakfasts in the full kitchen which was so very appreciated when travelling so many kilometers. The comfort factor of the home as well as the thoughtful decorating made it a perfect vacation spot. Definitely highly recommended from our stand point.

One of the best places we've ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

The Westville Vista was secluded, modern, and very comfortable. Waking up everyday to the stunning view of the West River and a full kitchen to cook breakfast was the perfect way to start our days before heading out to explore the sights. The cottage's central location made day trips convenient, and shops were all close by with some great recommendations left for us by the owners. The property itself is vast, beautiful, and relaxing. We made several walks to the water to walk the beach and get a closer look at the falcons nest. In short, we loved the place!

The rental process was made easy by the owners. They made everything clear from start to finish; we even had a small plumbing problem that was taken care of by the owners and property managers almost immediately. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us. Highly recommended to anyone visiting PEI.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful comments Scott. I am now here at Westville with my family for three weeks and always feel so peaceful and relaxed. The water is like a mirror this morning. I noticed that you left your large cook pot, did you want me to bring it back to Toronto for you? If so, happy to put it in the car! Kindly, Lisa MacEwen
