5*****vrbo.com555303 Best part of our East Coast Trip was staying at McKfolly ..... My husband and I stayed at the McKfolly loft for four days, at the tail end of our two-week East Coast vacation. If I could give this rental ten stars I would! Everything was perfect, especially the hosts John and Beverly, who gave us our space but were there when we had questions about PEI or the loft. They made wonderful recommendations on nearby beaches, places to eat or buy groceries and seafood. If there was anything missing they wanted us to let them know - but they thought of everything in advance. The loft was equipped with the highest quality items in the kitchen and throughout the loft, in excellent shape, and spotless. It was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. The king sized bed was unbelievably comfortable. Air conditioning is available, but we never had to use it, as there was a great cross-breeze with all the windows open at night. Such a restful sleep - it was soooo quiet there - heavenly! Bike and kayak rentals are available in nearby Morell and St. Peter's Bay, and the most picturesque part of the Confederation Trail is about 200 meters from the property. We spent an afternoon walking to Morell (not for the faint-hearted, it is 7.5 km each way). I would have liked to try a walk to the town of St. Peter's Bay (only 4 kms) but sadly we ran out of time at McKfolly. We would love to return to McKfolly for another stay next year, and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Thanks so much John and Bev J&T, Barrie, ON (July 2017)

You have done it right! The Loft was very well thought out with a fantastic kitchen, a large bathroom and a bed that is more comfortable than one could imagine. The location was perfect and every bit of advice from you was gold. You represent the Island perfectly. J&T, Barrie, ON (July 2017)

We had a wonderful stay. We appreciate the kindness and generosity you have shown us. You have a beautiful spot here. We hope to be back. K&L, MA, USA (July 2017)

Thank you for such a wonderful Loft! It was the perfect place to come back to after a busy day of exploring PEI. Thank you for everything. It was a privilege and a pleasure to stay in your beautiful Loft. We will always remember your lovely spot and your kindness. M&N, Saskatoon, SA (July 2017)

5*****vrbo.com555303 Unforgettable views, unforgettable hosts .....  My husband and I stayed 4 days in this beautiful loft on the edge of St. Peter's Bay and the only negative thing I can say about our experience is "why didn't I stay longer?" 

The hosts John and Beverly are friendly who love the Island and are eager to share the beauty of PEI through their loving attention to the loft, their guests and in their recommendations. They are definitely "kindred spirits" and make the loft an even more enjoyable experience. Bev especially helped me with a wedding dress emergency and did a wonderful job! Thanks Bev! 

The loft itself is sun-filled due to the many windows everywhere. Every window has a gorgeous pastoral or water view and private. I enjoyed opening the windows and feeling the delightful breezes and smells of PEI. I especially loved the big window in the bathroom - I could take a shower with a view! The best view is from the balcony looking through the trees over St. Peter's Bay and seeing the white church in the background - unforgettable! 

The kitchen had everything you could possibly need for vacation cooking. The bed was firm and comfy - the linens were soft and I slept so well! I especially appreciated the reading lights. Everything was well thought out and placed perfectly. You can tell a lot of time and thought went into organizing this loft!
 

I loved the privacy of this loft. I loved that I felt remote, but was actually very close to some great eateries like Rick's - THE BEST FISH N CHIPS EVER - make sure you get the haddock when in season- it literally melts in your mouth- no chewing required! We also ate at The Inn of Bay Fortune for their evening meal and it was well worth the money! A great experience! Also close to the confederation trail (which we didn't have time for this time!) and Greenwich National Park which is a must! After touring all over the Green Gables Shore, Charlottetown- I would com back to this part of the island and definitely to this loft.
 
I have already recommended this property twice to friends since our return and they will be booking for next year soon. This is a wonderful, magical place!
 J&A, CA, USA (June 2017)

Thank you for this amazing Loft! I enjoyed all the views - even got to see the "Lake of Shining Waters" in the shower! Love! The breeze was a delight as well. Everything was just perfect. The best part about the Loft is you both! "Kindred spirits" for sure! Thank you for all your advice, and Bev, for helping me to squeeze into my wedding dress. I will never forget that! Hopefully we shall return soon. J&A, CA, USA (June 2017)

Many thanks to Bev and John for making such a beautiful home away from home available to us ..... and in our favourite part of PEI. The design worked so well ..... everything we needed ..... with light and breezes and views in all directions. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch. Your welcoming hospitality made it all very comfortable and a great stay. Thank you. M&R, Ottawa, ON (June 2017)

5*****vrbo.com555303 Just what we needed ..... My wife and I decided to travel the east end of PEI, and after a bit of a search, landed an opening at McKfolly.  Bev and John met us and ran through all the items at the loft that would help to make our stay more enjoyable. The loft was beautiful and spotless, and if it lacked anything, we couldn't name it. For cyclists, the roadway intersects the Confederation Trail. Sadly we didn't bring our kayaks (mistake), as there is an easy launch to the bay on their property. Bev and John are pleasant, fun to talk to, and have lots of tips about the local highlights. We had a peaceful and wonderful stay, and hope that if we travel here in the future we'll be lucky enough to stay again. T&D, Sydney, NS (September 2016)

As to previous posts: ditto, ditto, etc. Loved the Loft. We had a beautiful five days in eastern PEI. Great hosts! T&D, Sydney, NS (September 2016)

5*****vrbo.com/555303 So comfortable! ..... The McKfolly loft was beautiful, comfortable and the perfect setting for exploring Prince Edward Island. We loved the decorating, quality linens and well equipped kitchen. The owners were kind and helpful, offering great advice that made our stay perfect. N&J, IL, USA (September 2016)

Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. It has been a wonderful two-day stay. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Your studio is perfect! You both have done a fine job putting together what everyone would want for a short stay on beautiful PEI. N&J, IL, USA (September 2016)

We have thoroughly enjoyed the past nine days living in this lovely loft. Our second stay here was as much or more fun than last year. St. Peters Bay is our favourite PEI location. Thank you for all the attention you paid for making us comfortable. (You even had basil for us!) Hope to return next year. P&D, NC, USA (September 2016)

Thank you so much for your hospitality over the duration of our stay. The loft was a wonderful spot to come "home" to at the end of each day and we enjoyed the proximity of the walking trail. Your space was so welcoming and well appointed ... we hope to come back again next year. N&J, Halifax, NS (August 2016)

Thank you for this place of your ever-so-thoughtful creation. We have loved every minute of night and day. It's an election year in our USA and McKfolly Loft has been a welcomed respite from all the clamor. You have planned this place beautifully and everything works! We look forward to visiting you next year. M&J, NH, USA (August 2016)

We were very happy and pleased with our stay here at McKfolly Loft. Everything just perfect and the loft so well equipped. The location was both picturesque and private. Thank you John and Bev for your kindness during our stay; the raspberries were delicious! We hope that we can return to McKfolly before too long. Even the weather didn't disappoint for our golf games and our beach days. Spectacular sunsets. E&B, Brooklin, ON (August 2016)

We can't thank you enough for all of the insight as we travelled through PEI. It was invaluable. From the local beaches to the fantastic restaurants - you always knew just where to direct us. Our first trip to PEI has been memorable - thanks to you both. The loft was a beautiful place to come home to every night. K&M, NH, USA (August 2016)

Thanks for providing such a lovely place to stay. And thanks as well for the little things - a couple of surprises to make breakfast easy when we arrived so late and for the help and advice in plan making. Happy to recommend. Glad we found you! C&E, Kitchener, ON (July 2016)

 5*****vrbo.com/555303 Fabulous accommodations and hosts! ..... Everything about our stay at McFolly Loft was great. John and Bev are so friendly, and their recommendations about sites to see, places to eat, rent bikes and kayaks, etc. were very helpful. The loft looks brand new and is immaculate. We enjoyed our daily walks along the shore of St. Peter’s Bay and on The Confederation Trail, both just a few steps from the loft. Location was great for daily sightseeing trips from Malpeque to PEI National Park to points all along PEI east coast. We would definitely recommend this spot to friends. J&D, PA, USA (July 2016) 

Thank you for sharing your lovely property with us. The Loft was a comfortable, welcoming spot to return to after our days out and about. We appreciate your attention to everything - from the immaculate, well-appointed space to all the great recommendations you provided to us! You made our first visit to PEI fabulous! J&D, PA, USA July 2016

5*****vrbo.com/555303 Stellar Stay! ..... We have rented many cottages around the world and this was one of our favourites. The loft is beautifully decorated and well equipped, flooded with natural light and with wonderful views of the bay. The kitchen made it easy to prepare meals and my husband especially appreciated the ease of barbequing on the deck. Everyone agrees that the most beautiful stretch of the Confederation Trail is the section between Morell and St. Peters Bay: the cottage is ideally located for walking or cycling this portion. Nearby Greenwich Park offers good trails and sand beaches. There is easy access to many other points of interest, but it is also tempting to spend hours on the porch with a good book. John and Bev have thought of everything guests could need and we could not recommend this cottage more highly. K&L, Toronto, ON (July 2016) 

5*****vrbo.com/555303 Our week long retreat at the McKFolly Loft - such a treat! ..... We had a fabulous week! John and Bev were so welcoming and the loft is ideal for couples. It was such a treat to stay in a place that had a fully equipped kitchen! We were able to cook fabulous fresh seafood meals and enjoyed visiting the various nearby fish markets daily.The loft is close to the Confederation Trail so we often enjoyed an evening walk on the trail. It's also only a short drive to Greenwich National Park, our new favourite National Park. What a gem! We highly recommend the McKfolly Loft - whether you are wanting to relax and unwind or be busy exploring the island - it is a perfect base. Many thanks John & Bev. Looking forward to our next visit! K&K, Spruce Grove, AB (July 2016)

Thanks so much for your hospitality! We felt right at home here and had a great stay! Loved staying in a place with a well-equipped kitchen - we were able to cook some great meals with local seafood and great PEI potatoes! Thanks for all your helpful suggestions on things to do. We had a busy week, but relaxing!! PS The wine, biscuits and homemade jelly were a lovely welcome after a long day of travel! Thanks! K&K, Spruce Grove, AB (July 2016)

We had a wonderful stay and discovered much about PEI. Thank you for the great advice - made our time so much more enjoyable as a result. The beautiful accommodation suits us in every way and we look forward to returning as soon as we can! A&R, Montreal, QC (June 2016)

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful loft. You have truly thought of everything one could need here, and made this a wonderful place to come back to each evening. We are thankful for a beautiful week of relaxing in the sunshine and appreciate your hospitality. Thank you again! C&M, Little Lepreau, NB (June 2016)

Our stay was wonderful, never mind the rain. We did get to cycle after all. Your beautifully appointed loft was such a pleasure to come "home" to after a day of activities. Thank you so much for your hospitality. It has been a pleasure meeting you and staying here. U&F, Ottawa, ON (June 2016)

 5*****vrbo.com/555303 Excellent Stay! ..... We arrived on PEI ready to discover its beauty and wonders. St. Peters Bay does not disappoint, neither does the McKfolly Studio Loft! John and Bev are so welcoming and ready to assist you in whatever you need. The loft is bright, clean, cheerful and well equipped. They have thought of everything. We had no trouble touring the Island from this location and were glad to return each evening to our comfortable loft! Hopefully we can return for another wonderful stay. E&H, TX, USA (June 2016)

Thank you for a warm welcome and helpful and thoughtful sharing of information about Prince Edward Island! The McKfolly Loft is a clean and cozy retreat to come home toafter a day of exploring the island. You have made the first week of our vacation so special and relaxing. Helping us to slow down. Thank you for all your kindness and God Bless You! Hope to see you again. E&H, TX, USA (June 2016)

We have enjoyed (and appreciated!) every comfort that the McKfolly suite has to offer - especially after the weekend with a wood chipper! Your loft space is beautifully designed and offers useful, well-chosen features. We especially like the sweet antiques that are peppered about. Sorry we had no time to chat, it was a productive weekend! Hope to return here again when relaxation is the only choice on the menu! Thanks. C&T, VT, USA (June 2016)

5*****vrbo.com/555303 Best One Bedroom Rental on PEI ….. We have stayed in a number of loft apartments and McKfolly loft is the best of them all. Very well equipped, immaculate, close to Greenwich National Park and steps away from the most scenic part of the Confederation Trail. John & Bev are gracious and helpful hosts. We enjoyed our afternoons on the shaded deck looking out at beautiful St. Peters bay and have already scheduled a week for next year. DN, Pittsboro, NC, USA (September 2015)
We have enjoyed our week living in your lovely loft. The layout suited us perfectly. We appreciated the cleanliness and attention to details. We look forward to staying with you on our next PEI trip. Thank you for the welcome bottle of wine, for the extra copies of "Saltscapes", and the fresh vegetables. P&D, Pittsboro, NC, USA (September 2015)

5*****vrbo.com/555303  The best bed I have ever slept in! ….. My husband and I used McKFolly Loft as our home base for a week in PEI in September 2015. We found the island beautiful and welcoming and the Loft to be a glorious home. Every comfort is at your fingertips and I have never slept in such a comfortable bed - just perfect! This was the middle of a two week adventure, so we especially appreciated the washer and dryer. John and Bev gave great recommendations for our meaderings and made us feel quite comfortable. Highly recommended for couples looking for peace, beautiful views, delicious seafood and a memorable vacation. JH, Columbus, OH, USA (September 2015)

Thank you for sharing your beautiful loft with us. We have enjoyed six days of relaxation and immersion into the beauty of PEI - I will never forget (seriously, T has taken dozens of pictures). What I will miss most, however, is this heavenly, comfortable bed.  J&T, Columbus, OH, USA (September 2015)

5*****vrbo.com/555303  Wonderful Retreat in PEI ….. We spent a week at the McKFolly Loft in early September and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The accommodations were welcoming and Bev and John were very flexible to our schedule. They thought of everything that you could possibly need when designing the unit. The craftsmanship and usage of high end appliances, among other things, reflects Bev and John’s pride in ownership and commitment to ensuring a pleasant experience. We appreciated the picturesque views typical of PEI out the windows of the Loft, including a view of Saint Peter’s Bay. One morning, the field view out the kitchen window afforded us a fantastic birding opportunity. We observed several American Kestrels, a Northern Harrier and two Merlins working the field. On several occasions, we also viewed Bald Eagles soaring overhead; evidently a common occurrence on the island. We enjoyed Bev and John’s personal recommendations to local eateries and activities and very much appreciated the use of their Parks Canada pass. In all, it was a wonderful experience and we would recommend the Loft to any couple seeking a memorable PEI vacation retreat. W&G, Portsmouth, NH, USA (September 2015)

Thank you for being such welcoming hosts and providing such a well-appointed and comfortable loft for our week of "leisure time" on the "Island". Having a really nice place to come back to helped a lot in our having such a nice week.  B&T, Montreal, QC (August 2015)

 The time has come to say goodbye - we've enjoyed our week immensely. McKfolly's setting is idyllic. The studio is beautifully decorated and appointed. And then there's the "McKfolly Lanai" (screened porch) where I practiced Chi Kong faithfully - almost outside with breezes and fragrance flowing through. And it was such a pleasure waking in the morning with the fields and sky just outdoors, the crickets chirping and again - fresh fragrant breezes flowing through. Last, but not least, we've enjoyed getting to know both of you. It's all been a real pleasure. Until we return  P&D, Port Perry, ON (August 2015)

Our second visit for two weeks was even better than the one last year. Thanks again for sharing your paradise with us. Thanks for everything again, and who knows - never two without three!  L&M, Quebec City, QC (August 2015)

"Again and again" ... We were so happy to be here, again ...to find your cottage so sweet, again ...and to have plenty of time for us, again ... To share our life with you and to find both of you such excellent hosts ... again. The weather was horrible (exceptionally!) but the sun rises from the inside  F&S, Quebec City, QC (July 2015)

 We had a wonderful time exploring the area. The Confederation Trail was an added bonus and well used by us. What a peaceful retreat you have created. Thank you for all your advice and exposing us to "South Lake" oysters. We hope to return sooner rather than later.  T&N, North Vancouver, BC (July 2015)

5*****vrbo.com/555303 Peaceful Retreat … We were extremely pleased with this vacation rental. We normally book a one bedroom rental, but this studio had ample room for two people. It was spotless and had everything we needed: fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, two great outdoor areas to enjoy our morning coffees and evening drinks. The bed is very comfortable and the nightly breeze made for an awesome night's sleep.

It was a bonus to have the Confederation Trail just steps from the property where we had our morning runs. Next time we will bring our bikes! Thank you John and Bev for creating such a peaceful retreat for us to enjoy. T&N, North Vancouver, BC (July 2015)    

Thank you for creating this peaceful retreat. It has been an absolutely perfect week in PEI. Your loft is not only welcoming, but also wonderfully outfitted with the right amount of everything. You have reminded us of the importance of slowing down, and always giving the best of yourself to others. Undoubtedly, we will be back - sooner than later, we hope. Your loft did not disappoint. Your advice was invaluable and I love the herb garden at the foot of the stairs. Our sincere gratitude…  R&T, Toronto, ON (July 2015)

What a splendid place for R&R. This setting, facilities and overall charm made my four days a real pleasure. John and Bev are excellent hosts and always willing to provide information, etc. I'll miss McKfolly.  LS, Vancouver, BC (June 2015)

5***** Just as promised! … The McKenzies can be very proud of their lovely guest facility. I stayed there for four nights while I visited Central and Eastern PEI and found it a joy to return to in the evenings. The location is private and quiet, has a beautiful water view and one can recharge their batteries at McKfolly. The interior is totally comfortable, great bed, fully equipped kitchen, super bathroom. Everything is fresh and spotless. John has provided lots of information including maps for guest's use. Thank you Bev and John for your kindness and helpfulness. I hope to return one day and would not hesitate to recommend McKfolly to anyone seeking peace and tranquility. LS, Vancouver, BC (June 2015)

5***** Beautiful Island, Nice People … My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing week of sightseeing and touring (mostly by motorcycle) on this special island. John and Bev are the perfect hosts - from the welcoming bottle of wine, to the well-appointed loft to their sincere interest in making your stay on their island everything you want it to be. You will not be disappointed. B&K, Hopewell, NJ, USA (September 2014)  

What a wonderful hidden treasure you have. It is indeed a special place filled with comfort and warmth ... the comfort sparing nothing that might be wanted and needed, and your wonderful warmth of welcome. Being here was a great pleasure.  JM and PB, Truro, NS (September 2014) 

"Un immense merci" for everything. We will not forget your kindness and generosity. We are both sad to leave this charming place; we will come back for sure. We had a wonderful time.  M-H & S, Rigaud, QC (August 2014)

 ... we enjoyed this magical place that allowed us to relax, recover and savor every moment. The loft is so comfortable, the place so resourceful ... we particularly appreciated your hospitality and generosity ... thanks to each of you for all the little touches that you provided us. Two Quebecois who leave filled with happiness, with the intention to return and say thank you to the life you have put in our way.  L & M, Quebec City, QC (August 2014)

5***** A Little Bit of Heaven in PEI … John and Bev were great hosts even to leaving a bottle of wine for us on our arrival. McKfolly Loft was exactly as in the photos; the description of amenities is accurate. There is nothing one could possibly want for that is not provided in this accommodation. There is no need to ever leave the Loft, except the beauty of the Island beckons through every window. The setting is stunning, the peace and solitude refreshing. There is so much to do at this end of PEI, with a wonderful bike trail at the door, and National Parks, great golf courses, local theatre and endless ocean activities close-by. We cannot recommend the Loft enough. We are already planning our next stay at this wonderful property.   GP and P B-P, Toronto, ON (July 2014)

"A wonderful vacation at the honeymoon suite penthouse with 360° views."  GP, Toronto, ON (July 2014)

5***** We would like to thank you both for the wonderful week we had at the loft, the warm welcome, the wonderful ideas and suggestions you provided. We really enjoyed the privacy, the wonderful view, the functionality, the cleanliness and the location. Your loft has it all.  A & S, Ottawa, ON (July 2014)

5***** A Very Special Place to Stay … The views from all angles are amazing. There are views across water and the sunset looks amazing. There are views across the fields. A very open aspect with a lovely lawned area on which to sit out and relax. Alternatively, sit out on the decked veranda and look out over the water. This loft suite did not disappoint and was better than we had imagined. New, clean, well equipped. An amazingly comfortable bed. Attention to detail by the owners, who made us so welcome and were keen to ensure we had everything we needed. Be prepared for the biting bugs and bring plenty of bug spray. This is to be expected, as the property is right next to water. It is a small price to pay and we wouldn't have wished to stay anywhere else. The property is on the eastern side of the island. Perfect for exploring all the wonderful beaches and pretty villages. If you like cycling, be sure to rent a bicycle from the Morell Tourist Information. They took great care of us and selected for us a couple of great bikes. The best route to take is the one to St Peters. Take a picnic - there are lovely areas along the route with picnic tables and fantastic views over the water. The route is about 10 miles (there and back). Charlottetown is only between half hour and 40 minutes drive away. It is a delightful Harbour town with so much to going on. Eat along the Victorian road next to the theatre, see Anne of Green Gables Musical (very good), do some shopping. A great day out. Be sure to get there for midday to see the free show - a musical about Canada's diverse heritage. If you are a couple wanting a quiet and very comfortable holiday, you will not be disappointed with the McKfolly Loft. Highly recommended.  R & D, West Yorkshire, U.K. (July 2014)

Thank you soooo much for your warm welcome and for this charming loft. We will have sweet memories of this lovely place.  J&R, VT, USA (June 2014) 

... thank you for you hospitality! We are amazed how beautiful and serene your property is. Pictures could not do the loft any justice. You both did not leave any stone unturned when designing and building the loft. We cannot wait to return!!!  T & M, Toronto, ON (September 2013)

... what a beautiful week we have passed to slow down, to take time, to charge our batteries. It was so easy to benefit from this quietful place! Here, all is made for comfort: your loft (functional and clean), the sunsets, nights and days... and your welcome too, of course. Many thanks for your awesome place. Soooo.... is it for sale!  F & S, Quebec City, QC (August 2013)
