About Us

Our goal is to help visitors find suitable, privately owned and family friendly accommodation in beautiful Prince Edward County and the Bay of Quinte region while providing professional rental services to property owners by marketing and managing their valuable investments. With several years of experience meeting the vacationing public's expectations for vacation rentals, we believe our service takes much of the hassle and uncertainty out of renting a privately owned cottage or home.

What are Renters saying about their experience?

My husband and I  would like to thank you very much for the help and the quality of the service you provided us with, from the start, to the end. We are already thinking of returning back to your lovely region and should we do so, we will certainly contact you to make all the arrangements.

I will keep in touch as we plan for our next PEC escape.I want to spend a lot more time there this summer, and I look forward to using your agency for all of my rental needs.

I wish to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate the quality of your customer service.

We definitely enjoyed our stay there. It was beautiful. I would highly recommend that cottage and would recommend your rental services as well. From the get-go all your staff had been very friendly and pleasant to deal with. The property was clean, spacious and the surrounding area was gorgeous. My only "complaint" was the lack of sun :-)

I'm glad we decided to rent from you guys and we are already thinking about next year as this trip was a lot of fun. I left a little note on a desk beside the big tv in the family room, hopefully the owners got it. Please express our deepest appreciation for welcoming us to their beautiful cottage and for providing us with all the amenities we would need. Thank you and the rest of your wonderful staff for all the help and hospitality. Wish you a great summer and hopefully we will be dealing with you guys again next year.

We had an amazing time at our home away from home! Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly and we all couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the ‘cottage’ was. It was better than we expected and was just what we needed for a girls weekend away! The website did a fantastic job at letting us ‘see’ the cottage before actually seeing it. There were no surprises upon arrival, other than just the amazement of how awesome it really was...and that ‘this’ was our ‘home’ for the next few days!

I’ve already passed on the cottage link to a few friends – some before I left for my vacation and a few others since returning. I posted some pictures from the vacation and no one can believe that we stayed at this cottage for as long as we did, for the price that we did. They were amazed…and were looking for more information for themselves. I discovered your rental service by ‘Googling’ - Rental cottage in the Picton area. When the property I wanted originally wasn’t available I was directed to your site, and the rest was history. I was placed in great hands, and because of it, had a great weekend away with friends! We loved every minute of our stay and were talking about making it a yearly thing only a few hours into our stay. We loved it that much!

Bonjour! Our trip was perfect, the house was perfect as well. The balcony and all the trees around the house, this is exactly why we did rent it. We found you on the site of prince edward county and we will rent it probably next summer. For the price and the proximity, we didn't see better. We will for sure recommend you to our friends and family. We will contact you when we know our next vacation week.

What are Property Owners saying about our services?

Sincerely, my husband & I would like to thank your for expertise, generosity, guidance and warmth during our novice year.  We had a quick turnaround time from date of purchase to rental property available & worthy for you to list.  We know we couldn’t have done this with each of your individual efforts and appreciate your patience with us!

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you. My husband and I are so surprised by how well the cottage has been received. For its first summer on the market - it is so surprising to see so many bookings. We are both thrilled! Thanks again and all the best.

Background

When Joan Bongard, owner & founder of County Holiday Homes, purchased a cottage in 2003, she decided to set up a website to rent the cottage as a holiday home. Her rentals were so successful that her neighbours asked her to manage their rental the next year, as did a friend the following year. Joan could see that there was a growing need for these services, so in the fall of 2006 she decided to utilize her business & marketing experience to start a vacation rental agency for the Prince Edward County area. Now County Holiday Homes manages over 90 properties and it's a year round business employing several staff. The latest project has been a major facelift to the website - new innovative design, advanced search functionality, easy navigation and an online reservation system – to provide a truly user-friendly experience for visitors.
