Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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!!

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 king size 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

I was fortunate to be able to book White Sails for a last minute getaway for my friend, my daughter and 3 year old granddaughter. I learned about it from my sister who has it rented for a little later. I've been vacationing on the Island for over 20 years and normally stay in Stanley Bridge area but I've always wanted to try North Rustico. I was not disappointed. The cottage was so well stocked and homey, and very clean. The owners were wonderful to work with. I brought my binoculars and they were well used on the deck overlooking the harbor. To be able to walk to the beach, restaurants, store, playground, shops and bakery was wonderful, not to mention strolling down the boardwalk! Blue Mussel Cafe was outstanding. Yellow House take out was a delightful surprise. One special treat I would recommend if you're traveling with children is Island Hill Farm, where the goats and other animals will delight both young and old. Of course, our old stand by, the Preserve Co is not to be missed and something new for us, a wood fired oven pizza from Glasgow Glen, which is very close by. I love Prince Edward Island and hope to visit White Sails again!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house in North Rustico from the moment we arrived. Very well appointed house with everything you could want or need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We loved being able to walk the boardwalk each day and enjoy the ocean and quaint fishing boats etc. Nice little restaurant at the point of the boardwalk within close walking distance. Great private backyard with bbq. Large front deck overlooking the ocean across the road. We have already booked our return vacation and we are counting the days.

Great stay at Whitesails in North Rustico

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two young children and I spent the week at Whitesails and we couldn't have been happier.

Whitesails rental property in North Rustico is an ideal place to stay in PEI. Walk five minutes along the boardwalk in one direction and you arrive at the beach or Blue Mussel Cafe. Walk five minutes in the other direction and you arrive at some shops, the playground and the amazing bakery (try the fresh donuts).

Whitesails was clean, very well appointed and very comfortable. Great deck on the front to watch the fishing boats. Wifi access and Netflix for a quiet night in. Park pass so you can drive to Cavendish beach or any park on the island. There's even some toys, a stool to access the sink and some beach toys.

Whitesails is central - 25 min from Charlottetown, 5 min drive to Cavendish. Easy to get to any point of interest on the island. There is a road between the cottage and boardwalk/ocean - speed limit is 50km but people drive slowly and it's not busy - mainly some cars going to the Blue Mussel Cafe - never heard cars in the evening. The house is set back quite a bit from the road.

Blue Mussel Cafe is great and has a kid menu. We went three times! They don't take reservations so get there early or be prepared to wait (it's worth it). The Lobster Supper restaurant in North Rustico was just OK.

I really can't recommend Whitesails enough. It's ideal for young families and for those who like the option to walk to dinner, the store or along a picturesque beach!

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed at White Sails. Our stay was wonderful. The house has everything that you need and more. The owners are great to work with. The area is priceless ! We went to the Blue Mussel Cafe, the North Rustico Market and the fish market.The beach is so close ! The market in Cavendish actually is a bit better but you can go to Charlottetown and shop in large stores like Sobeys, walmart etc. The locals are friendly and very helpful. We hope to return next year!

PEI Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay in North Rustico was excellent. The cottage was in a great location with a beautiful view of the bay and easy walking distance to a great restaurant. Allan was a helpful host and the cottage was very clean and well appointed. Couldn't ask for anything more.
