We bought our first home online – and unseen – in Prince Edward Island

Terry and I moved to PEI one year ago to escape the chaos of city life in Ottawa. It’s a decision that shocked our family and friends. After all, who buys a house – unseen – online and moves to a province they have never stepped foot on before? Well, that’s what Terry and I did.

Discover PEI

Despite being the smallest Canadian province, many visitors fulfill their dreams faithfully on this storybook Island. Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote about the landscape and culture in her much-loved book Anne of Green Gables.

“You never know what peace is until you walk on the shores or in the fields or along the winding red roads of Prince Edward Island…”

It offers an escape – in the true sense of the word – from the rest of the world, as my husband Terry and I are discovering.
