“Great Place to Stay with Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2010

July 2010 - Just got back from PEI. We stayed at Swept Away Cottages for a week and would highly recommend this place to any family. Our cottage was very clean, comfortable and spacious. It included everything we needed and if we needed something, our host Heather was always there to help. The cottage is located on a side road just off route 6. Its about a 5-10 min drive to get to Cavendish Beach - oh, and park passes are provided by Heather so you don`t have to pay to get to the park. Since the cottage is off the main road, it is very very quiet, but also very close to beach, restaurants, shops, etc. There is a very nice pool, hottub and fun room which our kids (9 & 11 yrs old) really enjoyed. There`s also a gym and sauna with very nice equipment. All in all, a very pleasant experience and we would highly recommend.

We have stayed at Swept Away Cottages for the past two years and are returning again in July of this year. We absolutely love this property, The first year we stayed in a 2 Bedroom Standard Cottage, and the second year we stayed in the 1 Bedroom Cottage w/ Jacuzzi and this year we are coming back and bringing 2 other families with us and staying in the 6 Bedroom Unit.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone, They are very clean and beautiful cottages and the staff and owners are fantastic.

Our children love that the pool and the play area are so close, and they also loved the game room that is located right by the pool as well.

We are all very excited to return this year for 4 days. And I will definately be returning for years to come!!!

We were looking for an off season vacation in the Cavendish PEI area. After looking at several cottages in Cavendish and their reviews, we settled on Swept Away Cottages. We were pleased that these cottages exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a standard cottage that was clean and well equipped. Heather was more than helpful with any requests that were made. Although many of the tourist attractions and services in the area were closed for the season, the nearby towns provided all the services we required. Swept Away Cottages are centrally located in PEI making day trips to all parts of the island very easy.

We recently stayed at Swept Away in the six bedroom cottage (#15). We have been to Cavendish and area for five family vacations and Swept Away is easily the nicest place we've stayed. We were grateful to have a half-decent barbecue--most places have the cheapest propane barbecue that money can buy--and a dishwasher. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is even a washer and dryer in this cottage, so you don't have to take home several bags of dirty clothes. The bedrooms are spacious (the master bedroom of our cottage had a king-size bed) and there are ceiling fans in each bedroom. The only suggestion I would make is that it might be a good idea to put a fridge / shelf over in the games room or somewhere where people can put the condiments etc that they don't want to take home, so that other guests can use them. The pool and hot tub were *perfect* when we were there...temperature was just right and not even crowded despite all the cabins being full. The owners Heather and Terry were extremely nice and helpful. There is also a towel and garbage service for the cabins---you leave out your old towels / sorted garbage before 11 a.m. and they replace the towels and fresh bin liners. It's an easy walk to the Cow's boardwalk and a 5-minute drive to the west beach entrance (each cottage gets a park pass to use during their stay...a very nice touch). I really can't imagine staying anywhere else in Cavendish now that we've stayed at Swept Away.

I rented our standard cabin online with swept away and we were very satisfied! The cabin was clean, modern and cute! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook fresh seafood and a dishwasher which is very handy. I wished the fridge contained condiments as it was a waste to buy ketchup and mustard for 3 days but that is a small detail. The pool was VERY cold but the hottub was pleasant. The owner is very helpful and full of tips on how to enjoy your stay. The location is close to all the Cavendish attractions like Anne of Green Gables, the water park and the amusement park, and having a national park pass provided saves you lots if you go to Cavendish Beach. I would definitely return to Swept Away Cottages, they were fantastic!!!

The location is perfect, the cottages and property are first rate and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in cottage#12, the jacuzi suite, it was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The property has many amenities and is well-kept. The service was excellent...a great place to stay in Cavendish!

Just returned from our trip to PEI and had a great family vacation. Cavendish is a wonderful place to visit with great beaches, family parks, and very small crowds in the high tourism season. Our three year old experienced beaches that gradually go out for a long distance to amusement parks.

We stayed at Swept Away Cottages in their largest cottage. The location was perfect - a few minutes from everything yet tucked away from the highways and noise. There is a huge playset, outdoor pool, fire pit, and similar amenities right on the property – to keep the kids busy in-between outings.

The rooms were clean, comfortable, well cared for, and had everything we needed. Our cottage included a full kitchen and laundry room on top of six bedrooms, living room and dining room. This was a home away from home for us.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. I spent a few mornings with them planning out our days and where to visit.

I would highly recommend Swept Away Cottages and hope to visit again soon.
