The Green Roof Cottage is fabulous. My kids and I stayed there for four nights. The location is central to virtually everything you want to see. The house is well equipped with everything you need from laundry facilities to bicycles. There is even a fun fire pit on the beach a few minutes away. Allan is an excellent host. He had great suggestions and was very helpful and responsive when we were organizing our holiday. You can't go wrong with a stay at his place.
Allan was a top notch host. His love and passion for the Island is infectious, and his good humour and charm set us at ease. The cottage itself is well decorated with a jazzy, beach house feel, and the kitchen and dining room is great for family style meals. While the upstairs bathroom is best described as a closet with plumbing, the outdoor shower makes up for it. I give it 4 out of 5 PEI potatoes.
Allan is a great host and the Green Roof Cottage is an absolutely lovely place to stay. We had a great time in the house and on the beach. The sun room is glorious in the morning. I would recommend a stay with Allan!
We spent 3 weeks at the Green Roof Cottage and we really enjoyed our stay. The house is exactly as described, the kitchen is very well equipped to cook and Allan just bought a new BBQ, the kids loved their room and the "star" lights, the screened porch ended up being our most favorite place to relax after a day of activities. There are a few DVD’s available in the house and if was useful when the weather was not nice enough to go out. Washing and drying machine, as well as a clothes line were very handy and wifi was always working and fast. The house is well situated to explore the island and there is a beach (unsupervised) at about 15 minutes drive. We were able to enjoy strawberry and raspberry picking also 10 minutes drive. Grocery stores are about 20-25 minutes drive. Allan is a great host, easy to communicate with before arriving and once we arrived, always available to recommend activities or help us with anything. We did not use the bikes, the row boat or the kayak but they were available. On the beach on Tracadie Bay (5 minutes walk), Allan has put some chairs and you can enjoy a nice fire camp with marshmallows. We highly recommend this house if you want to explore PEI.
Allan was a friendly & fantastic host and we really enjoyed talking with him.
He is very helpful and knowledgeable about the entire Island. He was able to provide us with many ideas and suggestions. His home was very comfortable for 5 of us to stay in. I only wish we'd have more time to enjoy sitting on the screened in porch! We'd love to go back.
This was a great beach house but no beach in sight. Bicycles unsuitable and kayak and punt not good unless you had means to transport. Well equipped kitchen, great screened porch and good bed but bathrooms/linen minimal and mosquitos everywhere. Mosquitos not your fault, Allan. Allan is a congenial host and will try to make you comfortable.
Carol we try to bring our information of this listing as true and accurate as possible . However, I know from my travels and booking with Airbnb and staying in many places through out Europe and Mexico just in the last year that I misinterpt listings/ imformation from time to time and when I got back to the listing I realalize I might have glazed over some of the finer deatils in my hast .
To make things clearer for everyone reading this review so there no mis understandings . Let me start by saying we are not a beach house but the Green Roof Cottage Iguess with a beachy kind of vibe ... walking distance to one of our fabulouse Bays more accurate a short walk for most , there we have our a 11 foot Punt which can be "rented "for a gentle Row while viewing a fanstastic Sunset . On the other Bay we have right on the water Kayak's which can be rented for a morning work out or a just to float around. Both are options and are upon request .
Our Bikes are avaibile and part of the rental package and upon request we can have them ready for you. One is a Hybrid TREK and the other is a Mountain bike and they are both of good qaulity and serviced yearly . We even have a kids size Bicycle suitable for ages up to 8 .
Please note : The Bikes , Kayaks , Row Boat are to be used in our area only and not to be transported out . There are other Bike and Kayak rental companies on the island that rent out for on a dialy and weelky bases .
Our local Beachs which is a short drive 10 to 15 mintutes tops are the best on the island in my humble opinion . Close also is the our National Park Brackley Beach and historic Dalvay by the Sea.
Mosquitos well they have been the worst this year all over the island and many of other Canadain provinces reporting the same issue this late spring / summer . However, you rarely find them on the beach and theres many home remadies coming out the wood work to combat them ..Its part of nature we just cant control .. and in Prince Edward Island we have the best clean beaches the best air and the best sea food but some bad bugs this season. ..perhaps its all the snow we had over the winter ..? Can we blame the Russians ..;)
The listing was accurate, and Allan had a chalk board welcoming us the the cottage. He gave us suggestions of what to do and the best routes to take.

About the Host, Allan
I m the proud owner of the Green Roof Cottage in Donaldston, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Now a Licensed PEI Tourism Cottage. I purchased the historic summer home over 10 years ago and every year we add improvements in order to make our guests as comfortable as possible .
I have been in the music and sound industry all of my life and after years of business travel is it's so nice to come to a place of peace and tranquility. The freshness of the sea air and the great sea food . Prince Edward Island really has it all . Our smallest province in Canada with the some of the best beaches in the country and the local people with big hearts ... but please don't tell too many people . It's the islands best kept secret...now celebrating over 150 years of the founding fathers of confederation.
Hope your stay on the island is relaxing and joyful !
