“Nice rental but some details left out”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

the house is charming and lovely and looks like something out of a fairy tale. There was no shortage of home comforts and the trout fishing is a short walk away for a fresh meal! We enjoyed our stay but a couple of details were left out that I think might be of importance to some renters.
The house doesn't have 4 bedrooms as described. It has 2 bedrooms and an open loft with 3 large beds. This worked out nicely for us with 3 teenage girls taking the loft, but could be a disappointment for families expecting the privacy of a 3rd and 4th bedroom.
Also, the owner lives on the property and moves out of the rental as needed, into a trailer close & on site. not an issue to us, but might be to some who aren't expecting anyone in their backyard.
Finally, the house is within feet of the north side of the main road and across from the Saint laurence (ie little view). It wouldn't be an issue but there is no air conditioning and the few windows that do open face this road so you will be awoken through the night thinking that a car has entered your bedroom.
I also didn't expect a $110 service fee on top of the rental fee when booking 4 nights through tripadvisor, maybe i wasn't paying attention so this is my fault.
The owner is lovely and the house and its contents are lovely, but keep the above in mind if it might be of concern given your particular situation. This was perfectly situated for us as we were attending a wedding in St. FAmille, but there is little to do closeby. If i were to rent again purely for pleasure I would go to St. Petronille which is closer to the bridge to Quebec City and has a lot to do nearby.

a good rental for our situation but might not be to everyone's taste if they are expecting a private quiet 4 bedroom home.

“Lovely Accommodation”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This beautiful house is an excellent choice to stay on this island. It is very well equipped and comfortable. Although the location is at the end of the island, it is very close to the road that bisects the island- you can be on the other side in less than ten minutes. The host is very accommodating; even mailing an item we left by mistake! I would rent this house again.
