Property description

This executive vacation home is an ideal base for all that PEI has to offer. It is located on the favored north shore, only 15 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from Charlottetown in almost an acre of natural waterfront with glorious views across Brackley Bay to the sand dunes of the National Provincial Park. The house has 4 large bedrooms that comfortably sleeps up to 8, 2 full bathrooms including an en suite to the master bedroom and 2 half bathrooms - one is en suite to loft whilst the second is on the ground floor. A comfortable lounge, separate formal dining area, fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher plus eating area, separate laundry room and a wraparound covered deck with screened-in area to watch the sunsets over a glass of wine whilst the food cooks on the gas barbecue. Nearest beach 5 minutes by car and 10 golf courses within 5-30 mins drive. Furnished throughout with stylish and comfortable furniture and fittings to make a memorable vacation for families and couple

Golf: It is no small feat when Canada's smallest province becomes Canada's Number One Golf Destination, and PEI has earned the distinction twice in a row. For new and experienced golfers alike, Prince Edward Island offers a golfing experience not to be missed with more than 30 courses to fit every skill level - from scenic nine hole courses to those rated among the top 10 in Canada!

A 5 minutes drive from Somerset House is Stanhope, a professionally maintained and mature 18 holes consisting of satisfying par 3s, long par 4s and par 5s where birdies are possible. Playing alongside the scenic Covehead Bay the ocean breezes can contribute to an interesting round.

Check out the PEI golf map and you will find a further 10 courses within 10-20 minutes drive, close enough to have a round in the morning, pop home for lunch before moving on to another course in the afternoon.

Beaches: Prince Edward Island is blessed with 800 kms (500 miles) of the warmest beaches north of the Carolinas. Every one of the 90 sandy strips of heaven is unique. Some spill into the ocean with characteristic red sand. Others sparkle white and pink. On some beaches the sand is so fine that it makes a squeaking noise when you step on it, which is why Islanders often refer to it as 'singing sands'.

The nearest beaches are Brackley Beach and Stanhope (complimentary pass) - even in high season there is so much space you will have no trouble laying down your towel or putting up your beach chairs. Children will enjoy the clear waters, making sand castles or sand walls at the waters edge to hold back the waves, while the adults will enjoy walking for hours in bare feet, watching the birds and tracking the tides. Or everyone can simply enjoy the sheer pleasure of jumping waves. And at the end of the day, there is no finer place to watch the sunset or gaze up at the stars.

The house is situated on the favoured north shore of Prince Edward Island and overlooks Brackley Bay's natural shoreline. It is in a perfect position to sample all that the island has to offer. It is just a few minutes drive from the beaches and sand dunes of the National Park at Brackley Beach and Stanhope (a park pass is provided during your stay for access to all the national parks on PEI), with beautiful clean beaches and, even in high season, you will find plenty of room to put up your beach chairs and lay down your towels.

PEI is the number 1 golf destination in the world and the house is 5 minutes drive from Stanhope, and less than 30 minutes from some of the best golf courses on PEI.

Cavendish, home of Anne of Green Gables with living museum and the famous Green Gables house, is 15 minutes away by car and slightly further away is a waterpark and amusement park.

Less than 10 kms is Covehead Harbour, where you’ll find several sport fishing companies such as Campbell’s Deep-Sea Fishing, Fishy Business, Richard’s Deep-Sea Fishing, and Salty Seas Deep-Sea Fishing.

There are also many more sport fishing operators located at the nearby North Rustico wharf.

If you enjoy cycling nearby is Freewheeling Adventures, Northshore Rentals, Dalvay By the Sea Bike Rentals, North Rustico Bike Rentals, Outside Expeditions - North Rustico

You can access Horseback Riding at Millstream Trail Rides, Cavendish Trail Rides, and Jeannie's Trail Rides Ltd.

The house is only 20 minutes from the centre of Charlottetown, the historic birthplace of Canada, with its many shops, restaurants, cinemas, banks, indoor swimming pool, ice hockey, historic harbour side and Confederation of the Arts Theatre where you must find time to see Anne of Green Gables play. Families can enjoy the Harbour Hippo tours, double decker London bus tours, horse drawn carriage rides or take a boat ride to view the local seal population. .


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We first came to PEI in the winter of 2006 to visit friends who had moved to the island to run an Inn in Charlottetown and enjoyed it so much we returned for a summer holiday. During that holiday we realised that PEI was exactly the sort of place we wanted to continue to come back to so we decided to buy a holiday home.

Why the Owner Chose Brackley Beach:
The house overlooks Brackley Bay with views to the national park and has the most amazing sunsets. We love to watch the birds down on the bay, there are wading birds as well as ospreys and every year we are delighted to see the bald eagles return to raise another family. If you want a peaceful and relaxing place to unwind then Somerset House is the place for you.
