About the property

Waterfront Property

We offer 3 cottages to choose from. Starboard and Portside are 2 bedroom beachfront cottages with cathedral ceilings in the open-concept kitchen/ living/dining rooms. Each of these cottages have a queen-size bed in one bedroom, and a single over double bunk-bed in the other. A blow up mattress is available for extra room if needed. The Aft cottage is a 2 storey, 3 bedroom cape cod style house. It has 3 bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen-sized bed, the second bedroom has a double sized bed, and the third bedroom has a single over double bunk-bed. The Aft sits back 0.2 km from the beach and has a water view and a 3 or 4 minute walk down to the beach. You can drive down to the beach as well. Pictures are provided to help with cottage choice. Homeport cottages are on a 20 acre parcel that faces the Northumberland Strait on the southeastern shore of P.E.I. The property has a very large beautiful red sandy beach, and sandbars go pretty far out at low tide. The cottages are well spaced apart (600-1000 feet) and they have their own separate access to the secluded beach. We are right in the middle of a big cove. You can find edible bar clams on the sandbars at low tide, as well as walk and explore in the tide pools or just relax on the warm sand. Great for swimming, shelling and fun for kids building sandcastles. There are large umbrellas and chaise loungers on the beach to catch some shade on hot afternoons. Seals can be seen swimming near the lighthouse by times. All 3 cottages have a 50 foot outdoor clothesline in addition to the drier. We are 1 km from Plough Through The Waves visitor information centre that has a liquor store and shops. Restaurants, service stations, banking institutions, and grocery stores are located in Montague, a 20 minute drive North. The capital city Charlottetown is a 40 minute drive. Two golf courses are within 15 minutes.Gather around the firepit in the evening, wood provided.

About Leslie MacQueen

We have lived here for 38 years. We live on the property year round.

Leslie MacQueen purchased this cottage in 1978

Why Leslie MacQueen chose Prince Edward Island

Leslie and Gordon moved here to the Island in 1976 to a property left to Gordon by his father. They looked every day for 3 years and finally found this property. They raised 4 kids here, and Leslie and her youngest son Darryl still live here and love to share it with visitors every summer.

What makes this cottage unique

Wildlife (occasionally bald eagles and rabbits).

Peace and quiet, smell of the ocean.

Great for swimming, shelling, exploring, and long walks on the sandbars.

Cooling factor the ocean has, especially at low-tide.

Lots of space and trees from other cottages for your privacy.

On-site caretaker who can be a unicycling clown for birthday parties as well.

Wood provided for firepits.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 10 days this summer. Leslie went over and above and was the best host we have ever had in all our VRBO experices. The cottage was immaculate, comfortable, and you could tell that everything was done with so much care and attention to detail. The beach is gorgeous, although more for exploring than for swimming. Thank you Leslie for teaching us how to go clam digging, then digging for us, cooking it with/for us, and showing us how to eat it (he also helped us cook lobsters!) We would have never figured it all out! Our friends also came to stay and we enjoyed exploring PEI and having fires at night. I didn't know much about PEI when I booked this, and I'm so glad we chose the beautiful Woods Island as our home base. Make sure to bring LOTS of bug spray as the Mosquitos were intense.

Cottage Rental - Burlington, Ontario

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Starboard Cottage for a week. It was nicer than even the pictures showed on the internet. So clean, bright, with lots of windows and all the amenities you could want. Ocean view from the combined living room dinning room as well as lighthouse views. Quiet & peaceful with steps to the ocean. When the tied is out it is great for walking, digging clams or for small children a great place to dig & splash in the ankle deep water. We had a fire almost every night, wood was provided. It is not in the hub of things but that is what we wanted. You can easily get to all areas of PEI. The owners are wonderful, thoughtful and kind people. Golf courses near by, two wineries as well. Fresh fish/lobster just down the road, fresh veggie stand a short drive away, what more could you want. I can't say enough about this cottage & property. I would definitely return and have no hesitation recommending it to anyone.

Sixth year in Starboard cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are returning this July for our sixth summer vacation in Leslie's Starboard cottage, at Homeport by the Sea! We enjoy the view, the private beach, the cosy cottage decor, (washer and dryer),the large sunny kitchen, the hummingbirds. Our daughter's family has stayed in Port cottage, and loved it also.Leslie and her property manager, Darryl are onsite, and work very hard to look after everyone's needs, big or small. We highly recommend this beautiful beach property, no air conditioning needed!

1 Year Anniversay Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot for my husband and I to come on our anniversary.

The beach is so private, we had it all to ourselves for 5/7 days of our holiday. Never have we experienced such a great beach.

Leslie, the owner of the property and Darryl, her son and grounds keep told us about all the local attractions; especially Crabby's Seafood right down the road on the dock. And Rossignol's winery, a bike ride away. Delicious Island made fruit wine!

Very peaceful, memorable experience. I have recommended this property to my friends.

And we will be back!
