Hosts: Lawrence and Jovette Keeler
Accommodations: 3 Cottages
Address: R.R. #4, Souris, PEI, Canada C0A 2B0
Activities/Attractions: We are located on Howe Point along the north-eastern coastline of the island in a private, remote area, entirely removed from noise and traffic, where seals can often be seen sunning themselves on the sand bars and bald eagles soar or dive for fish right in front of you!
Yet, we are only ten minutes from the harbour town of Souris (hospital, post office, banking, groceries, liquor store, shopping) and twenty minutes from Montague, the other main commercial centre for Eastern P.E.I. Fine dining can be enjoyed within five minutes of our location. The dunes of Greenwich National Park are a mere 15 minutes away and championship golf courses lay within a 30 minutes drive!
"It may be too soon to call and, since this is my first visit to PEI since I was in diaper, I am probably not qualified to judge, but I think that Confederation Bridge has not changed the "unique" character of the Island. In only a week's worth of lazy sightseeing, we kept on coming across odd snippets of Island life. My favourite example was the town of Five Houses. There are twenty-two houses in the town of five Houses! It was great to start so many of our journeys by going through this utter anti-calibrating town. Yet, the other way, in Basin Head, it was enjoyable watching the kids hurl themselves off the bridge into the channel below. The lifeguards appeared to enjoy it, too; so much so that the [NO JUMPING OR DIVING FROM THE BRIDGE] signs were joyfully ignored by all in attendance. A lawyer would need a divining rod to figure out that one! Unfortunately, I will be back at work in Toronto in a few days. With any luck, there will still be a light dusting of Island red on my shoes. Great trip and cottage!"
"The 'summer Home' is a spectacular place to stay while on vacation. It is spacious & comfortable as well as being luxurious. The view of the Bay as well as the rising & lowering of the tide provided much enjoyment for all. We loved our stay & will find it most difficult to continue on our quest to vacation in every province without returning. Thank you."
"We were thrilled to pull into this jewel of a cottage and one with such a breath-taking view at the end of what seemed to be an endless two day journey to get here. We have decided that the Howe Bay view is one of the most beautiful we've seen after vacationing in the most beautiful sceneries in 3 continents. We hope to come back some day. hank you Lawrence and Jovette."
"Spectacular two weeks spent in this idealistic setting. Our kids could not have enjoyed more the beach with its ever changing tides! The days "hanging around" will be cherished 'til we can return once again to this paradise. Thanks for all your efforts in making this house a fabulous vacation retreat!"
"A family escape to Peace & Tranquility. We all would like to thank the Keeler's not only for sharing paradise with us, but for attention & warmth one finds only with family. Sure hope we can return one day."
"Red dirt road takes us to a cottage with a view that is too beautiful to try to describe. The weather this past week was perfect. Each day we wake to blue sky and clean crisp air. Diamonds sparkled on the water. The tides caused our view to change each time we turned our head. A canoe trip across the bay, the red cliffs in the distance, seals watch our every move, we choose the best shells to take home as a memory. We rest and doze off as we sit on the porch. My brother carves birds out of a stick of driftwood. Biff runs across the yard. We try to read our books, but the view takes our eyes off the page. We loved it here."
"We had a fabulous stay! What a beautiful spot! Your home is fantastic and the location couldn't be better! The kids loved Sally's beach, great for families. Adults enjoyed the fire pit with a glass of wine. Thanks for the fabulous seaside retreat!"
"What a fantastic place! We loved every minute of our stay. Gorgeous cottage, gorgeous view, gorgeous sun. This is the first of many stays, we hope!"

"This little piece of heaven was idyllic! We arrived tired, worn out and run down. We are leaving energized, refreshed and renewed. Unlike most of the other visitors, we were much less adventurous. I think the farthest we went was either Montague in one direction and Basin Head in the other. Truth be told, we really felt everything we needed was right here, in our own backyard. Best beach - right outside the door at low tide. OK, so Basin Head is spectacular & worth a visit just to get the taste of PEI, but at low tide, whether you take the canoe across the little channel, or you turn left at the bottom of the steps and walk around the point, you have at your disposal miles of sandy sand bars, warm water and NO OTHER PERSON for miles. Heaven! If you have small dogs or small children, the sand bars, separated by ankle + knee high stretches of water, are fantastic for them. They will splash around for hours and you won't worry. Best screened-in porch - right here in this house. We lived there - ate, took cocktails, slept and read. All in all, one of our best holidays. We hope to come back."
"Today is a sad day, as it is time to depart. It has been a delightful 2 weeks, too short a time! Wandering along the shore, crossing to the sand bar ,even tipped the canoe. Oh we had fun! BBQ every evening. A wonderful way to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We will always remember our time at Howe Bay. And our dog loves it here as well!"
"SENSATIONAL! Magnificent view, extremely breathtaking. Our days were full of sun all week. Sit quiet & watch the seals come in - 8:00 pm or so. Steve's seafood claimed a small fortune from us from all the visits we made to him: lobsters - 10 or so fresh, millions oysters & clams. Steve's is the best! Thanks Jovette for the lobster pots! Ceilidh in Rollo Bay is a must. The cultural experience is all together wonderful. Exactly as I dreamt it would be. The kids even got up to dance! Howe Point is a place that is definitely a well kept secret. It is wonderful to see this area has not been spoiled by commercialized tourism. We do intend to return. Thank you for sharing this piece of beauty with us!"
