Trip Advisor Review
My wife and I arrived at the Morning Glory Suite immediately after our wedding dance in Charlottetown and provided a relaxing start to our honeymoon before heading on a cruise to Alaska.
As part of the snuggles and bubbles package, we had a delicious home cooked meal in the evening before our departure from the nearby Charlottetown Airport. After a busy wedding day and a late arrival at the B&B, we slept through breakfast unfortunately. We look forward to enjoying the full B&B experience for our one year anniversary.
The Bonshaw Breezes is perfect for couples with amenities like an outdoor hot tub and in-suite jacuzzi. Sharon and Dave were great hosts and we look forward to staying at the Breezes in the future!
My husband and I toured NB, PEI, and NS for our honeymoon and Bonshaw was probably the favorite place that we stayed. I guarantee you will not have more helpful hosts anywhere you stay: Dave and Sharon were kind, helpful but not too in-your-face about helping you plan your stay. They gave us a great map, good directions, and lent us beach chairs, cooler, and towels when we headed to the beach. Additionally, the breakfasts each day were fantastic and varied - Sharon is a truly excellent cook! At first we were intimidated because you eat with the other guests at breakfast, but it got to be a lot of fun because we shared tips each morning about great places to go.
The only thing people should know before they book is that this is NOT a historic bed and breakfast. I think from the website people maybe think otherwise, but it's just good to know ahead of time. The property consists of two buildings, the main house which is where the Mayflower suite (by far, the best room there) is and where the proprietors live, and then the secondary building that has two other rooms. The rooms are all cozy - the bathrooms are good size and everything. It's just not a historic property; although the property itself is incredibly lovely and the views are very beautiful.
The property is in the middle of the country, but it's very central to everything. I liked that it was a great location to explore the entire island, since we were interested in seeing Cavendish and Charlottetown and everything in between.
Overall, it's a great great place to stay - we even extended our stay because it was so wonderful, and cut short our time in Halifax. Great decision!
"Dearest Sharon and Dave. Thank you both so much for your hospitality and genuine Island welcome. We love the peace and warmth you have worked so hard to instill in your lovely property.The food was truly excellent, and the conversation delightful. You made our honeymoon on PEI as wonderful and we appreciate that immensely. We hope to come back and bring others! Please know how much we appreciate all you did! All the Best!

"Most amazing start to our honeymoon we could ever ask for!
Thank you Sharon and Dave! You guys were amazing hosts and we couldn't have asked for a better start to our 2-week honeymoon in Atlantic Canada. Out of all the places we stayed, Bonshaw Breezes was by far the best in both food and service. The little extras and the thoughtfulness you put into everything you did made our 4 day stay with you incredible. You gave us very helpful advice on what to see and do in PEI.
If we ever have the opportunity, we will definitely be back!"
Thank you both for such an amazing time. We loved our 4 nights and looked forward to our tasty breakfast each morning. You have a FABULOUS B&B and we wish we could stay even longer. We really enjoyed chatting with you both and really hope we can come back one day or meet you next time you're in Toronto.

"We thank the Lord for leading us here. Our honeymoon was absolutely lovely Thanx to all the little things- chocolate, bath salts, robes, jaccuzi, hot-tub and most of all, the feelling of being home. We've had a wonderful time. May the Lord richly bless you and i pray that the Lord will reveal himself to you in a mighty way. May you glorify your creator with this wonderful place he has blessed you with"

Dear Sharon & Dave! A million Thanks for wonderful days here at Bonshaw Breezes! We have had a wonderful beginning to our honeymoon....We would have loved to stay longer if we could! You are truly amazing people, continue being who you are!"
Jenny and Marcus, Jonkoping, Sweden, July 9th-11th. 2009
"Thanks so much Sharon & Dave. Our room was absolutely beautiful, your attention to detail is fabulous and breakfast was amazing. Wish we were here longer. I don't think another B&B will compare to this one! Thank you for making us feel so welcomed. Your B&B will be a cherished memory of our honeymoon for years to come. We will definitely return. whether it be for an anniversary or because we moved here!(We are seriously considering). Thanks for the champagne, that was a lovely, touching surprise. We wish we could extend our stay here but we will definitely be returning one day! Thanks for making our honeymoon memorable!
Chris and Laura, Regina, Saskatchewan, July 8th. 2009
"This visit has by far, been the best part of our honeymoon! The serenity of the rolling hills and landscape, the hues of blue and green on those sunny days, the mixture of relaxation and adventure (good thing we brought our bikes with us!) have been just what we needed! Sharon's breakfasts have absolutely spoiled us~ the candied ginger fruit cups were delicious! We now know how we'd like to have our home in a couple of years~everything from the beach glass dish to the hummingbird feeders! We only wish we could extend our stay here to experience more of what Prince Edward Island has to offer. Sharon and Dave, thank you so much for everything! The mussels were fabulous! Thanks again!"
Erik and Rebecca, West Babylon New York, May 14th-17th, 2009
"Sharon and Dave Thank you for making the first stop on our honeymoon so memorable! The suite was so comfortable! We've decided to get the same type of mattress as it was so relaxing! The food was absolutely the best we've ever had! Thank you for the apple & oatmeal pancake recipe. I'm sure it will be used a ton! You were awesome hosts and made us feel so welcome and at home. It was like being with close friends instead of being at a B&B. Thank you for my first taste of lobster the correct way. I think you deserve a five star rating! Thanks again!"

Located just a short driving distance from Charlottetown, PEI, Bonshaw Breezes offers a relaxing setting in which to enjoy the tranquil countryside of the island. Newly renovated, the accommodations are beautifully decorated and unmatched with regard to cleanliness. The homemade breakfasts are both hearty and delicious so plan on some physical activity to work off the morning feast that you are sure to indulge in. The owners, Sharon and Dave, make you feel at home and are helpful in planning day trips to see the local sites and find a good meal. We were more than pleased to have Bonshaw Breezes Bed and Breakfast as a part of our honeymoon memories!

This place has far exceeded our hopes or expectations! You made our honeymoon stay on PEI so wonderful!! From the truffles to the lavender sheets-you’ve thought of everything. The extra touches made us feel so special & welcomed, as did your hospitality and counsel on what to see and do while we were here. Wow, island hospitality at it’s best; we can’t wait to come back! Stop by when you’re in Indiana!
