Sometimes you take a risk and good things happen. My wife and I decided not to book ahead this time when we travelled to PEI, so were a bit apprehensive when striking out in our rental car from Charlottetown. We were relieved when we found Bonshaw Breezes B&B and that they had a vacancy.
We weren't relieved when we were shown our suite, though. We were DELIGHTED! With lots of space, lovely amenities (including a great hot tub) and peaceful surroundings, we knew we had discovered a great spot.
The best part, though, was how well we were taken care of. Our host was terrific, providing us with insights, information and very nicely prepared and tasty breakfasts.
A great spot to visit, relax and use as a base on the island.

We also both enjoyed the "Homey" feeling you have put into your accommodations.Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and natural friendliness which were beyond any we have experienced in our previous stays on the Island. A special note has to be given to the Breakfast on the Deck, the scenery and especially the Food (Bonshaw Breezes Eggs Benedict Casserole...FANTASTIC)We found Bonshaw Breezes more than earned the four and a half stars. I am sure we will be back again...Thanks again"

Dear Sharon and Dave...For 3 weeks we travelled Atlantic Canada and we stayed in a number of different places. Some were lovely, some...not so much. Your place, however, was the best! From ther scenery to the room, to the food, to the hosts, it was an unforgettable experience. A beautiful way to finish off a beautiful vacation. There's just one problem: we don't want to go home now! Thank you for everything and hopefully we will have a chance to visit again soon...ps if there was a rating higher than "excellent" on the comment sheet, I would check mark that too. Your place is just stunning!"

"Dear Sharon and Dave: First of all Can we stay a month next time! First of all your place is charming. Hope we haven’t over-stayed our welcome. You are both the best hosts, making us feel wonderful, especially your delicious meals, Sharon.Steve and I have had a great vacation, so relaxing touring the Island. We had a terrific time at the races and the lobster supper that you cooked was to kill for. It is going to be very hard to leave after being so pampered and spoiled.
Thank you for the wonderful afternoon we spent together doing all the girly things and I know Steve enjoyed his afternoon golfing with Dave.Well, I doubt we will ever be able to return your wonderful hospitality but when you come to Toronto, we would love to treat you to dinner."
