El Cotajo is an incredibly beautiful and modern cottage well worth the time and price. Our favourite parts of the cottage were the well equipped kitchen, a large variety of water sports activities, the outdoor volleyball court, the firepit, and the washrooms. KCV staff were helpful and responsive the entire process. Stephanie T. (Sep 2022)

Hi Ken,
On behalf of my family and I, I would like to thank you for an awesome weekend at El Cotajo. The cottage was beautifully decorated and kept very clean. The amenities were great and we truly enjoyed the water activities. We never ran out of things to do! From badminton to board games! The owners were great in providing all the necessary information 🙂 I posted some pics on social media- and already have people messaging me asking me about this cottage- I’ve told them all that I would highly recommend renting El Cotajo! Thanks — Tanisha B (June 2021)

I just wanted to send a follow up email to thank everyone for the great experience from the cottage itself to KCV. We had a great time at “El Cotajo” (which is beautiful btw) and the KCV team for the great customer experience. When our PEI vacation was officially cancelled in early June, we had a rough time finding a cottage and were experiencing a lack of response from all other management companies we tried to contact (it was so frustrating) UNTIL we found KCV. From the very first time I called Ken he took my call and was very helpful. Being in sales myself, it is all about the customer experience and 5+ stars to KCV.  I will not hesitate to recommend KCV in the future or the Salgo cottage. —Wayne G. (July 2020)
