Bonshaw Breezes is an amazing place to stay! In addition to the rooms and property being beautiful and well taken care of, Dave and Sharon were splendid hosts. The breakfast was different every morning and always excellent. When we arrived at PEI we didn't have any plans so Sharon gave us great recommendations for things to see and places to go. We loved getting to stay at Bonshaw Breezes.

Dave and Sharon are wonderful hosts. Every morning they greeted us with big smiles and welcome and wonderful breakfasts. (Our last morning we had to leave early and they had put breakfast in the refrigerator for us to take with us.) We were there for 6 breakfasts and they were all delicious and never the same. After breakfast they spent time with us going over our plans for the day, including making reservations. Every day was full and they gave great recommendations. At night on our return they listened to our excitement over the day we had.
We stayed in one of the suites and were very pleased with it. There were three of us so one person had to sleep on the hide-a-bed in the living room couch. It was fine for one person but would not have slept two. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Sharon puts fresh flowers in the room every morning and little gifts on the night stand.
The only negative was that the wireless internet would not work in our sutie very often so we had to go over to the main house. Dave was frustrated with it and is working on it.
I will definately recommend the b&b to anyone who is planning on going to the island. We are so thankful we decided to stay there the entire time!
"Thank you so much for the incredible breakfast, good conversation and comfortable accommodation. The views, quiet location and birds singing their greeting also added to our enjoyment. Have a wonderful summer! Thanks again"

We were so lucky to have chosen the Bonshaw Breezes B&B . It was our first visit to the island and the location was excellent. Sharon and Dave are outstanding hosts and their expertise in the best places to visit,shop and eat at were most helpful. We were impressed that they presented us with a vase and flowers from their most impressive garden in celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary. The rooms were beautifully decorated and we loved having the kitchen. The tranquill setiing and the view from breakfast just added to making it a perfect spot and we will certainly recommend the Bonshaw Breezes to our friends and we hope to return sometime in the future. The breakfasts were absolutely exquisite.
"Dear Sharon and Dave, Thanks for the hospitality. What a beautiful valley. Thanks for the great breakfasts. Please have a good summer and we will remember our stay with the pictures we took."

After six weeks of motels and mediocre breakfasts, Bonshaw Breezes was an unforgettable retreat. Our family of four did a cross-Canada trek and decided we needed some pampering in PEI. We couldn't have chosen a better spot. Beautiful grounds, immaculate accommodations and gourmet breakfasts. Thanks so much Sharon and Dave! It was a much-needed respite during our hectic schedule.
Thanks so much Sharon and Dave! We LOVED stay here and breakfast was awesome. It is nice to meet other guests too. You've got a beautiful place here and P.E.I. is gorgeous. We've been once before and I really hope we can come back again some time. Thanx for your hospitality !!!!! Love from
Traci and Jeff, Edmonton, Alberta, August 18th-20th. 2010
Dear Sharon and Dave, We can't thank you enough for the warm hospitality you extended to our family. We appreciate all you have done to accomodate our young children. Bonshaw Breezes is truly "God's Country" and we enjoyed every minute on the property.
We will definitely see you again on our next visit home to the East coast. We look forward to the breakfast menu for next time! Thanks!

Bonshaw Breezes is a beautiful property centrally located in PEI. The suite (Lady's Slipper) was gorgeous, immaculately clean and enough space for our little family. We looked forward to our gourmet breakfasts every day which were amazing and would definitely hold anyone over until lunch time. We had a lobster dinner with Sharon and Dave and enjoyed their company immensely as they treated us like family. They were amazing with our 3 year old son and allowed him to "help" Dave with some of the chores around the property. The service we received was second to none, absolutely fabulous. They anticipated our every need and paid great attention to little details which made our stay quite enjoyable and unforgettable. Bonshaw Breezes is a MUST!
"Thank you for a beautiful vacation. We enjoyed ourselves immensley. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Breakfast was delicious every morning and the lobster dinner was no different. Dave, thanks for the cracking lessons! :) The Lady Slipper was a great suite for our little family. You pay great attention to little details and it shows...again Thanks for everything"

Dear Sharon & Dave
Thank you for the opportunity to have a vacation that would last forever in our memories. You have been so thoughtful in putting this lovely place together that we could not come up with anything as suggestions for improvement. The food was excellent and our usual milk and cereal in the morning will be difficult to handle from now on. Thank you also for the wonderful & valuable tips on how to plan our day the the island. The kids had a wonderful time & will be sad to leave this spectacular place. We wish you all the best with your business & can promise you that we will be back in the near future.

"WOW...so much to say. The central location is perfect for day trips around the island. The accommodations are "Bar None" the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Sharon's gourmet meals & lobster dinner were unbelieveable. We loved the daily colour themes & wonderful conversations & David and Connor loved Crowbush. Truly a home away from home! We are sad to leave...however it only makes returning one day something to look forward to. Thank-you soooooooooooooo much!

Trip Advisor Review:
We were over to Prince Edward Island Labour Day weekend. 2006. We stayed at the most wonderful, excellent Bed and Breakfast called "Bonshaw Breezes." The hostess is Sharon Moore, who is the most wonderful person. We also met her wonderful husband Dave, and her sweet daughter Kristen.
We arrived there on September 2nd, and Sharon met us out in her driveway. She showed us the whole site. Our accommodations were the Mayflower Suite and My Dad had the Trillium Suite at the most reasonable prices.
The Mayflower had a Queen Size bed, Double Pull-out Couch, Full private bathroom, Mini Kitchen (microwave, bar fridge) A very relaxing sitting area, Satellite TV, VCR, and DVD, High Speed wireless internet, Phone, Private entrance, A Great Hot Tub available if you want to take a relaxing soak with a beautiful air to breathe in, Laundry facilities accessible, Great Parking.
Dad (Ken Dagley) had the Trillium Suite with a Elegant bedroom, Queen size bed, Full private bathroom, Guest sitting room, Satellite TV, VCR & DVD, High Speed, wireless internet, Phone access, Private entrance, Laundry facilities, Parking.
They have horses on the next property beside them. Our girl Briana loves horses, and she is 4 years old. Sharon and Kristen took Briana over to see the horses.
We went to the Museum called "Car Life Museum" which is just down the road from "Bonshaw Breezes B&B". They have a lot of wonderful Antique cars. We went to Cavendish Beach for a lovely picnic, to the "Wax World Stars Museum", and "Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum", in Cavendish. When we went back to "Bonshaw Breezes B&B", Sharon had the most wonderful baked homemade squares for each one of us for a treat. We had the most wonderful sleep there. All rested up for the morning
In the morning Sharon had the most beautiful, tasteful, wonderful, magnificent breakfast. She prepared a wonderful Fresh fruit salad and yogurt, blueberry pancakes, very tasty, delicious sausages, and bacon, homemade banana bread, juice and tea or coffee. The Biggest Breakfast we ever had.
We all recommend this most wonderful, great, excellent Bed and Breakfast Called "Bonshaw Breezes" to everyone. Sharon helped us out with all the tourist attractions and places in Prince Edward Island, directions, and maps, and pamphlets to get to places. "Bonshaw Breezes B&B" is spotless. Everything is available for you at the accommodations. Sharon, Dave and Kristen are great people, and they make you feel like you’re at home.
In closing, I would have to say "Bonshaw Breezes B&B" is the absolute best place anyone could stay. Also a wonderful view, A very clean, absolutely magnificent Dining room, where we ate our breakfast together as a family. Sharon keeps all the accommodations spotless. We will be going back there every year
