“Great Family Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

We travelled to PEI for 5 nights with a 5 and 6 yr old. This is the place to stay!!! The playground is right in front of the cottages, great firepits, comfy cottages and a spectacular view. Highly recommend!!!

Thoroughly enjoy the cottage and its central location in Cavendish. Had all the amenities and the most helpful staff - a special shout out to Shar who after some investigative work was able to locate the communal lobster pot for our lobster cook out!!

My fiance and I booked a one bedroom cottage for three nights. The cottage was a perfect size and had everything we needed. The BBQ's are brand new, the bed was so comfortable and the deck seating was perfect. I believe we were the only guests there without kids but we didn't mind.

As there were only 2 of us and we were only there for 3 nights the Tourist Supermarket was perfect for picking individual condiments and small items. We picked seafood at Dorion's market and some baked goods at the Olde Village Bakery - amazing!

We were fortunate enough to never need our AC as the breeze coming from the rear of the cottage was amazing.

We loved our stay here and can't wait to visit again.

The location was excellent. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with supplies and kitchen items. The staff were very friendly and went out of there way to get us what we asked for or needed right away every time. It was great to have access to the pool and a National Park pass too!

Mike, we just love reading reviews like this. Thanks for helping us spread the word. We think our staff are amazing but perhaps we're a bit biased. When we hear that others feel the same, we're delighted. Hope to see again soon. Tracey and Kenny

The cottage was well equipped and clean. It was a great location being minutes away from the local attractions of Cavendish. the staff was efficient and friendly. The kids really enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub.

Once again this summer my husband & I , along with his brother and his family spent a week at Bosum Buddies Cottages in Cavendish PEI. The first time we went there it was because the cottages allowed dogs (we have 2 border collies). Upon our return, we chose Bosum Buddies for many other reasons as well ! They have a cottage big enough for all 6 of us to share, with plenty of room and two bathrooms, a brand new BBQ....and the cottages have air conditioning.
What a great spot this is for everyone. There are 2 playgrounds, multiple firepits which are stocked daily, a great swimming pool and even free wifi .
Bosum Buddies is located on a beautiful piece of property, you can see the ocean from the deck ! It is just far enough from everything that is feels super peaceful and quiet, even though it is about a 5 minute drive from all of the major Cavendish attractions. They include park passes with the cottage rental, and even offer ticket packages to Sandspit or Shining Waters. It doesn't get any easier than this, they truly have thought of everything.
We love coming back to Bosum Buddies, and are already planning our next trip ! Thanks for all the hospitality

You have just about summed up the entire Cavendish Bosom Buddies Experience. Each year we strive to offer new amenities to continue to enhance the guest experience. Glad you like the addition of the new fire pits and the new BBQ's. We started stocking the fire pits as well to make it even more convenient for our guests. We love that you continue to return. Many of our guests have been making memories for many years with us and we hope you will continue to do so for many years to come. Thanks for your time and of course the amazing testimonial. See you next year. Tracey and Kenny.

It said there was air condition, however it took 3 days to cool off, while one of my dogs was like overheating because it was so warm in there. First time we used the toaster the next morning for breakfast, only 1 side of the toaster was working. we used the BBQ also as we brought all our food from home because this was a cottage, the top grill of the BBQ was so bad that it fell on all our boneless chicken, so we lost about $20 worth of chicken. they never replaced the toaster, so took forever to make toasts for 3 people every morning. for the lost of the chicken, we were given "3" free 1 scoop ice cream.... the sofa bed and the queen size bed were not comfortable at all. the free wifi didn't work most of the time and that also was brought up, however nothing changed. after all this trouble and paying almost $1000 for a 4 night weekend in a open concept cottage, we were really not impressed and would not go back there. to get all that disappointment, and only given 3 - 1 scoop ice cream for free was kind of slap in the face for the amount of money we paid to stay there.

Thank you for your feedback and I would personally like to apologize for the inconveniences experienced during your stay with us at Bosom Buddies. I do recall your visit as the issue relative to the BBQ was brought to my personal attention which we promptly replaced along with some complimentary vouchers for COWS to acknowledge this inconvenience. We have updated all of the cottage BBQ's with Broil Kings and are in the process of upgrading the suites as well. We did experience a maintenance issue on the Canada Day weekend with a few of our air conditioning units which surfaced because of the extreme humidity on that weekend. We again apologize that this affected your stay and have since resolved this issue. We take our guest's feedback seriously and our staff work hard daily to ensure we can rectify any issues brought to our attention immediately. Thank you for choosing Cavendish Bosom Buddies.
