I stayed at the Harmonious Fox House with my extended family for 1 week in August. We were 7 adults and 5 children. The house is so spacious that it never felt small even for such a large group. The house and the yard definitively exceeded our expectations. The house looks better in person than it does on the pictures. It is very well maintained.

The owner was always very prompt to respond to our questions / concerns via text messages.

As stated by others, one of the highlight of the rental was the beautiful pool. The very private setting located on such a large yard made it a clear winner for all. The pool was the perfect complement after a day at the Sandbank beach.

We've also made extensive use of the kitchen, BBQ and games provided.

Overall I would not hesitate to go back if I ever decided to visit the area again.

We had a great vacation here with our family and friends where we had 4 kids under 5 years old. The property including a very large field with hay bales meant lots of time catching frogs and exploring every day. We spent every afternoon in the pool and the house was very well appointed for cooking, games, relaxing. Our best rental and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or come back in the future.

Owner response:
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay Jonathon. We look forward to seeing you again soon !

We stayed at Harmonious Fox for 6 nights starting July 29th, 2017. Overall, we had an excellent experience and would not hesitate to recommend this neat and clean home to those looking for a base from which to explore PEC. We were 2 kids/2 adults but the home could accommodate much larger groups with ease.

We were particularly impressed with:
- the modern amenities (including espresso maker in the kitchen) and cleanliness
- the pool
- the vegetable garden
- lots of space on the property for the kids to explore (and lots of interesting frogs, birds and bunnies)
- large library of boardgames to wile away those rainy days
- kids loved the foosball and hockey table (there was a ping pong table as well but there isn't really enough room to use it)

Some may want to be a bit closer to the main PEC centres (a bit further south) but it wasn't that big a deal for us.

Thanks for a great week.

Chris.

This was our second year at Harmonious Fox and it did not disappoint. If anything we found ourselves appreciating this amazing home even more than the first year. It is as advertised: well equipped, spacious, with many bedrooms and bathrooms providing maximum privacy for each of our family units- our adult children and their families. The house itself is charming, lots of wood beams, original wide plank floors and newer hard wood. Weather was not quite as good this year but it was absolutely no drawback as we pulled out games and a movie. The eclectic music collection was enjoyed every day. The pool continues to be the biggest draw for us
Our family would be happy to make this our gathering place every year !

Harmonious Fox House was the perfect vacation home for our family and friends. The house is spacious and well laid out. The large kitchen and dining area is well equipped - so well equipped that we ended up eating all our meals at home. We'll have to make another trip to try the great restaurants of Prince Edward County. There were activities for all without going far - cozy places to read, puzzles and games, bird watching from the deck (including many birds at the feeder and the swans and great blue herons in the marsh), easy bike rides nearby and more challenging rides for those keen enough, walks along the trails on and around the property and swimming in the lovely salt pool. Further afield we visited the amazing Dunes at Sandbanks, the lavender festival, and a few wineries, shops and galleries.
