We spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Harmonious Fox House, 5 adults and 3 children. We found it idyllic, an ideal place to relax. It is spacious with a well equipped kitchen, a BBQ and setting to eat on the deck adjoining the kitchen. The sea water pool is a major feature where we spent time every day. The large area at the back of the with well maintained walking paths to enjoy the outdoors. A very special place!

Absolutely wonderful week at the Harmonious Fox House. Our family of four (with two teens), our in-laws (another family of four with two school-agers) and grandma all stayed. Tons of space with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms to go around. Everyone loved the kitchen, the hub of most activities. Our fishing kayakers were out almost everyday. There were a couple downpours of rain so the walk through the brush path to the dock was wet and mucky - bring your outdoor or water shoes for sure! Tons of success catching fish in the bay. Loved the pool as well, and the spacious lawn allowed for fun games every evening. Drives to Picton, Sandbanks and Lake on the Mountain were in the 15-30 minutes range but having the privacy back at the house was worth it. Felt like our own oasis! Thanks to Celia - a great host.

Our second stay at this lovely property was as outstanding as the first. The house is exceptionally well appointed with plenty of beds to accommodate our family group of six adults and four children. Lots of room to spread out for indoor activities, commodious kitchen and eating area and two fridges to allow us to keep shopping to a minimum and relaxing to a maximum. Huge, spacious grounds offer lots of areas to explore, and the large fenced swimming pool was the pièce de resistance for kids and adults alike. We had a perfect week. Thanks to Celia for her attention to details.

We had a wonderful stay here. We were 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids under the age of 5) and it was perfect for all of us. The house was clean, well stocked and there was plenty of space for all of us. Everyone loved the pool, the huge yard and the kayaks.

I would definitely recommend staying here for anyone that wants to stay in PEC.

Celia was always very quick to respond when we had questions.

Some selfish part of me does not want to tell you about this awesome house! We were there for a week with 4 adults and 5 children. The house is huge and clean. It has everything you would want or need. The kitchen is surprisingly well equipped. The pool is a dream and we honestly spend the bulk of our time in and out of it. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. There is a field to run around in, play sports, a fire pit that we did not use.

We loved the house and had a wonderful time. Celia and Tony were responsive and kind.

The only thing I might mention is that even with the AC running the rooms upstairs were quite warm, but we were there during a massive and unheard of heatwave so I don't think that this would have been an issue otherwise.

If you want a quiet week or rest and comfort this special property is a great bet.

Thanks for the kind words Marie Rose!
We have ordered another air conditioning unit for the upstairs which should help cool things down !
