Unique, picturesque, peaceful, seaside, artisan.....some of the words used to describe Victoria by the Sea, Prince Edward Island where our Starfish Beach House is located. Sitting next to the historic Victoria lighthouse The Starfish offers 5 acres of privacy, yet a leisurely stroll down our lane finds you right in the heart of the village where you can enjoy all it has to offer.
Our beach house is in a great central location for you to explore the island on your vacation or if you prefer to just kick back and enjoy all the village and the south shore has to offer you could spend your whole time relaxing close to home. You will wake up every morning looking at the water and then come downstairs to magnificent views while you eat breakfast and plan your day.
We like to spend a couple of weeks staying at our beach house every summer. It's hard to resist the slow pace the village has to offer yet there is always something to do. The public beach to the left of the wharf is a great place to spend an afternoon listening to the sounds of the kids wharf jumping. There are public washrooms to the right of the parking lot and lots of choices for food just a stroll away. If the sun gets too hot it's easy to take a break and spend some time browsing the shops. We never let summer get away without spending some time (a few times) sitting on the deck of Island Chocolates sipping our lattes and eating a few chocolates.

We are located in the artisan village of Victoria by the Sea. Take a stroll to find fine dining or good pub food, Island Chocolate Factory, By the Sea Kayaking, candy store, Victoria's Glass Studio and craft shops. Victoria has an operating fishing wharf where you can spend time watching the boats come and go, buy some fish to cook up at our beach house, or launch your own pleasure craft. If you have older kids they will most likely want to spend time wharf jumping as it is a favorite pastime on a hot summer day in Victoria. And you don't have to be a kid to take the plunge!! On Saturdays from 11 am to 2 pm we have our own farmers' market located right on our property next to the Victoria lighthouse where you can buy local organic vegetables, pickles, jams and local handcrafts. You can visit the Victoria by the Sea website to find more. Find it at www.victoriabythesea.ca

About the owner: We only have this one rental property and like to stay here ourselves. The satisfaction of our guests is very important to us. We think vacations are good for the soul and everyone should have an enjoyable one. Our kids are of all different ages with the oldest two living on their own. Our youngest at home is 8 and next in line an 18 year old. Steve (the old guy) fishes lobster on the north shore of PEI in the spring. Connie makes sterling silver jewelry from our 185 year old farmhouse. We have a farmers' market on our property Sat. mornings from 10 - 2.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria: Having worked and played in the village for decades we felt lucky to get the opportunity to put a vacation home here.
