Cavendish house description

PEI is not just a great summer destination...it is a great destination any season of the year! Enjoy fabulous beaches, hiking on National Park trails, biking on dedicated bike trails...or relax on the deck with a good book!! Please contact us for extended stay rates.

Our 4-season waterfront vacation home is located in the village of North Rustico...one of PEI's most popular vacation destinations! North Rustico is a small, active, fishing village located just east of Cavendish. We are a 20 minute drive from the airport, a 45 minute drive from the Confederation Bridge and 25 minutes from downtown Charlottetown.

The house has a panoramic view of Rustico Bay and morning coffee on the deck is a great way to start any day! Local fishing boats pass by hourly and deep sea fishing is a popular activity. Stroll on the boardwalk, spend the afternoon on the beautiful sandy beach (5 min walk to supervised swimming in the National Park)or if you are more daring, jumping from the breakwater at the mouth of the harbour is a popular local activity!! Choose one of many local restaurants for dinner. Sunsets from the front deck are breathtaking!

June and September are excellent months for golf enthusiasts and the local lobster season is in full swing by mid-May!

The house offers a water view master bedroom with a queen-size bed and a second bedroom with your choice of two twin beds or one kingsize bed. There is a TV/familyroom on the lower level. The living room overlooks the harbour and the large eat-in kitchen is fully equipped for quick snacks or gourmet dining.

Located on the south side of the eastern tip of the Cavendish National Park, the house offers the best of PEI in any season. Enjoy the local boardwalk, which connects the harbour entrance to the village centre. A short drive takes you to Prince Edward Island's capital 'Charlottetown', the National Historic site of Green Gables or one of several world class golf courses.

If you prefer a slower pace, leave your car home and walk or ride a bike to beaches, shopping, lobster suppers, waterfront cafes, kayak rentals. Experience the true joy of coastal living in one of PEI's most popular vacation areas.

The house is decorated in colors inspired by the sea and offers everything to make your vacation a fond memory. The large front deck has a patio table and chairs.

Features of note include:
- new beds with luxury bedding
- a cozy living room with fireplace and satellite TV
- washer and dryer
- large water side deck
- 5 min walk to white sand beach
- walking distance to village

September and October are favorite golf months in PEI!

                    My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at Whitesails and our only regret was that we could not stay longer. It is located in an area on PEI that is very convenient for sightseeing on the island. The house is very comfortable very clean and very well maintained. Everything that you would need was provided. We enjoyed the waterfront location,the close proximity in one direction to the beach,National Park and bike trail and the town with the best seafood store and bakery in the other direction. The boardwalk is wonderful for walks and we saw herons and eagles daily while sitting on the deck. The views from the master bedroom , the living room and the deck were fabulous. The property owner was very nice and and responsive which made the rental process easy. Although we did not need them the owner provided the contact information for the caretakers who lived close by.(always nice) Whitsails is in a beautiful location in this wonderful fishing village. If you want to relax and enjoy all the natural beauty of this area....go!!!..you will not be disappointed!!!!

                    Whitesails is a wonderful vacation rental. Beautifully located with panoramic views of the harbour and bay. House is comfortable and stylish, with large windows overlooking the bay in living room and bedroom. Well supplied kitchen. Rustico location perhaps best on island. Would recommend highly.

                    The owner’s friendliness & helpful suggestions very much contributed to our relaxing 2-week mother/daughter trip in this gem of a province! "Whitesails" is comfortable & fully equipped, offering all amenities you could want in a vacation home. The location of "Whitesails" is one of its best features. We spent every day exploring the island from the North & South shores to the Eastern Coastal drive & finally the North Cape Coastal drive. We left no clump of red dirt unturned! North Rustico is the perfect starting/ending location to visit the entire island. Some of our favourite experiences: *”Evangeline” at the Charlottetown Confederation Centre of the Arts was a stunning & memorable performance. We also saw "Anne of Green Gables - the Musical". It too did not disappoint & a trip to PEI would not be complete without seeing it. Also, at the Rodd Hotel dinner theatre, we saw "Good Golly Miss Molly", an upbeat & fun performance. *The Brackley Drive-In Movie Theatre, only a few short kilometers away, was a fun experience! It took me back to the 50s/60s & the sheer enjoyment of sitting under the stars & watching a movie on the big screen. *All our driving tours offered some of Canada's most majestic scenery available but two spots clearly come to mind. Shortly past Cap-Egmont & the 'bottle houses' there is a short red dirt road leading to a lighthouse. The view surrounding the lighthouse is amazing with a spectacular rock formation in the water below & high red cliff. Secondly, on the Red Sands Central Shore drive is Rocky Point with the Amherst National Historic site overlooking Charlottetown harbour across the bay. The Acadian Museum in Cap-Egmont is also very informative & is a must-see to understand this part of Canadian history. *Good & plentiful meals can be had at the Charlottetown Olde Dublin Pub where we enjoyed the entertainment of local musicians Richard Wood & Gordon Belsher. Two of our local favourites are the Blue Mussel Café & the bakery in North Rustico. Finally, for our special "good-bye PEI" meal, we enjoyed the 3-course 'Fall Flavours’ dinner at the nearby Olde Glasgow Mill in New Glasgow. *While there are many artisans on the island, a favourite of ours is Peter Llewellyn (Shoreline Design) located in Georgetown on the Eastern Coastal drive. He creates fanciful jewellery from sea glass & shares the history of the different kinds. This review wouldn’t be so long if we didn’t enjoy our stay so much!

                    This was our second stay at Whitesails. The location is absolutely perfect! A short walk to the National Park (and walking/biking trails) and right across from the boardwalk and harbour itself. Very short walk to the wharf where you can buy fish to cook in the fully stocked kitchen. Also short walk to the local grocery store and can't say enough about the Village Bakery. House was VERY clean and had everything you could possibly need. The deck overlooking the harbour was great for enjoying the morning cup of coffee as well as cocktails and dinner in the evening. And the home allows for a dog for which the house/location were perfect. Highly recommend this home for a relaxing getaway.

                    We could not have asked for a better located home for a week...right in the middle of North Rustico Bay with a view of the harbor, osprey fly-by's, concerts in the park, walk-to seafood shop, kayaking, fishing. Also we really liked the little bakery up behind the gas station...and the boardwalk along the edge of the harbor to walk off those yummy croissants! Would rent here again.

                    We stayed at Whitesails for seven days and enjoyed the view from the front deck of the Bay, the fishing boats and the blue herons each morning with our morning coffee. The lovely Boardwalk in North Rustico borders the Bay in front of the property and we enjoyed walks daily meeting other tourists and watching the kayackers go by. As Seniors we appreciated the many benches along the boardwalk to rest and refresh. The house was fully equiped with linens, towels, kitchen ware and utensils and very comfortable. We appreciated the unlimited use of the telephone to the USA and Canada. TV reception was good with ample selection for everyone. We hope to return next summer and would definitely recommend Whitesails to our relatives and friends. The house is conveniently located to the National Park, 5 other beaches, and many restaurants serving Island seafood. In North Rustico is the quaint Watermark Theatre with performances by Maritime performers related to the Lucy Maud Montgomery and Island themes. Not to be missed is the Village Bakery especially the homemade biscuits and pies. On the North Rustico Wharf is Dorion's Fish Market for fresh daily seafood. Fishing Boats are also available on the Wharf for goups to go out for the day. Whitesails is very close to Cavendish with the beach, entertainment parks and golf courses. We enjoyed seeing the cyclists along the bike path in the National Park. Bike rentals are available at the entrance to the Park in Cavendish. The Island provides a magnetism unable to put in words that has us returning every summer. The people everywhere are friendly and helpful in this Acadian community steeped in history and charm. We were greatful for the use of the National Park Pass for the week and used it many times. The Greenwich National Park is well worth the trip out.

                    We were extremely pleased with this property. The location allowed for easy walks to the beach with the kids in one direction and to a great playground for young children in the other. On the way back from one of those short walks we were able to get freshly caught fish to make either on the barbecue provided or in the fully equipped kitchen. The entertainment for the kids included cable channels and Netflix with kids programming galore and a spacious backyard to play in...there was even a baby gate for the basement which we needed. We enjoyed the fabulous view from the deck drinking coffee in the morning or taking in sunset with a glass of wine. We'll definitely return.

                    We had a wonderful time here - there's a great view of the harbor from the front window. A shopping area with a good restaurant is a short walk away. The beach is also reasonably close. Other amenities (grocery store, gas station, liquor store) are a short drive away. The owner was very helpful in answering questions via email (there's internet there) and even had fans brought in for the record hot days. If you go to North Rustico, Bob's Deep Sea Fishing is worth doing, and the Blue Mussel Cafe is good. Cavendish isn't far either, there's lots of good stuff there (a water park, paintball, Anne of Green Gables park) if you have kids. The owner provided a park pass to visit the parks which were really good. This is a good place for a vacation, and we got good value for our money.

                    We stayed at Whitesails for a week. The location is perfect. It is about 5 minutes walking distance from the beach which my kids loved. It is also 5 minutes away from the harbor where there is an excellent restaurant (Mussel café) where they serve good mussels and good beer. Located in the harbor as well is Bob's deep fishing which I highly recommend. We had so much fun fishing. North Rustico also has a co-op for your groceries and of course a liquor store. I also liked the massive backyard which my kids used for playing and a lovely front porch for having your morning coffee and afternoon/evening wine.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We (Allan & Carolyn) live in Montreal and go to our island home several times per year. There are so many things to do and see in PEI in all of the seasons; spring lobster season, summer beaching, fall food festivals, local music in church halls, etc. We have been visiting PEI for the last 36 years and have collected many good memories.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cavendish:
                  Whitesails is perfectly located on PEI's coast! A beach within 5 minutes, Cavendish activities around the corner, a fish market, country bakery and supermarket a short walk away. A quant harbour and a number of great restaurants!
