About Allison and Mark Walsh
We are a couple who reside in Kitchener who grew up and went to school in Toronto, Ontario. Our 2 children are now grown and independent. We look forward to sharing our home with you.
Allison and Mark Walsh purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Allison and Mark Walsh chose Saint Peters Bay
Our family of 4, born and raised in Ontario, took a family vacation to Prince Edward Island in 2003 and that is when we fell in love with the island way of life. We have visited every summer since, until finally purchasing our summer cottage in 2012. The warm summer sands, the incredible views, access to live theatre and world class golfing are some of the main attractions which drew us there year after year. While our 2 children are grown up now, they still manage to visit their childhood summer destination every year. Be careful, you too might lose your heart to PEI, just like we did.
What makes this Cottage unique
We fell in love with our home primarily because of its excellent location close to beaches, Greenwich National Park, St. Peter's Bay and the main towns of Souris and Montague with their many amenities. We have made our home a warm inviting place for family, friends and our guests who return to us year after year.

Great place to stay and feel at home.
Our stay was great, and the house was well equipped with everything we could possibly need or want. The welcome binder was very useful in guiding us and giving our family some fun ideas of places to explore. We would recommend this place to friends and family.
Living the PEI experience!
This charming cottage allowed us to feel right at home. It was equipped with everything we needed and very well organized. Only 10 minutes from Greenwich Dunes, it was well situated for exploring the various towns and beaches. The list Allison left of things to do and see was perfect and we enjoyed many of the recommendations. Unfortunately though, my sons could not play outside and we couldn't share nice evenings around the fire pit due to the fierce mosquitoes. Another drawback being that we were unable to get any internet connection. In all, we had a wonderful and special trip due to PEI and its fantastic beaches and stunning beauty!
Anne, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in beautiful PEI. I do apologize for the internet trouble. We have since learned that there was a tower problem in the vicinity of the cottage. It has since been resolved, unfortunately, not in time for your stay. Thanks for your feedback. We hope to see you again in PEI.
We had a great time. The house is very cute, clean and well equipped. The host was very easy to work with and she got back to us right away when we had a question. I would love to stay again.
We found the house full of character and equipped with everything needed for a great stay. The location worked well for us as we wanted to spend time in the immediate area at Greenwich Nat Park, Basin Head Beach and stopping at lighthouses along the East Points Coastal Dr. We spent another day visiting the Anne sights, witnessing a beautiful sunset at Cavendish Beach, and having the best dinner of our three week Atlantic Maritimes trip at The Blue Mussel Cafe in North Rustico, a very scenic little fishing village. You might also want to find some time to chat with John, the property manager. He was able to share shipwreck stories and interesting local history.
Roomy and we'll kept. The manager responded promptly to the few issues we had in wasp nest under the porch and a broken hose on the barbecue.
So sorry, Terry, that wasps decided to reside under the front stairs during your stay but I agree, our property manager is very prompt and is always ready to solve any problem. He also fixed the barbecue hose. Thanks for bringing that to our attention.
Greenwich Gables felt like home.
We loved everything about Greenwich Gables. It is clean, cozy, charming and so thoroughly outfitted with everything we needed for a week-long, pleasurable stay. It is close to our favourite places on the Island: Greenwich National Park, Basin Head beach, Charlottetown, Georgetown and St. Peter's (for fresh seafood at the fish market). It is also very close to Cable Head beach which was a new discovery for us. Great place for morning walks with the dog, refreshing afternoon swims and lovely sunset viewing in the evening. A wonderful spot to stay.
Greenwich Gables, in Cable Head West, is located in the most beautiful beach area of PEI. With the Links at Crowbush Cove nearby, and the proximity of Greenwich National Park and the bayside community of St. Peters (5 minute drive), it is an ideal location for your PEI vacation.
Cable Head West is located in the Island’s easternmost region, (eastern Kings-St. Peter’s Bay Community) and attracts visitors who appreciate natural spaces, outdoor activities and a rural lifestyle that emphasizes friendliness and hospitality. Its location is part of the Points East Coastal Drive Touring Region which boasts: 13 golf courses; 34 beaches; 6 lighthouses; 34 history and cultural attractions; 24 harbours; more than 100 restaurants; 12 provincial parks; 6 Scenic Heritage Roads; and a national park. A stay in our lovely Greenwich Gables cottage, which has been recently updated with a new custom kitchen, new flooring and comfortable beds, is perfect for anyone seeking a laid-back, relaxing PEI vacation. 5 minutes away, is the unforgettable dune system at Greenwich National Park which is an area of startling natural beauty, dominated by many miles of majestic sand dunes, dramatic sandstone cliffs, numerous red and white sand beaches; a haven for beachgoers. Other popular supervised beaches in the eastern PEI region include Red Point, Basin Head and Panmure Island, to name a few.
Its close proximity to St. Peters Bay is ideal as one of the most scenic stretches of the Confederation Trail runs right through the village of St. Peter’s. The village offers a panoramic view of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and is also a good stopping point for shopping, dining, theatre and music.
The Links at Crowbush is 26.5 km away. It is a world-class golf experience boasting 9 water holes and 8 holes near the famous dunes on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Crowbush was awarded a 5-star rating from Golf Digest and is listed among the "Sweet Sixteen" top courses worldwide.
A vacation at Greenwich Gables in Cable Head offers visitors more than a vacation to Prince Edward Island - it offers a chance to get away from it all while feeling a bit like you've finally come home.
