About the property

A perfect beach vacation getaway with 2 bedrooms, fireplace, secluded beach

PEI Beach House By The Bay is a waterfront vacation home overlooking the Northumberland Strait, Confederation bridge and SeacowHead Lighthouse. The bright open layout is ideal for relaxing and entertaining.

The location is private and the views from the patios are breathtaking. The screened in porch is the perfect place to enjoy the views on breezy nights. While the Adirondack chairs and picnic table await you on the deck.

The beach is very quiet and the water is warm on this side of the Island. At low tide, our beach stretches for miles. So much so, you may think you can reach the Confederation Bridge.

The house has everything you need. Two large bedrooms and an open concept main floor with a fireplace. It is tempting to just stay put and relax. However, if you have never visited PEI, your curiosity may cause you to leave your vacation getaway for some of the Island's attractions. We are but 20-30 minutes away from many of the Island's popular sites.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our week at this amazing cottage.

Lots of walks on the shore, beach combing, sunsets and some great pictures to capture the moments.

Cottage was warm and welcoming and well stocked.

We found enough both here at the cottage and on the road to keep everyone happy (Mom, Dad & 12 & 14 year old girls).

The property is beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property and home are beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. The private beach is spectacular. At low tide you can enjoy the most amazing walks and sandbars. The great public beach is also walking distance from the house. Our family has so many amazing memories from this trip and this beautiful beach home.

PEI beach house by the Bay = Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and very inviting. It was a home away from home and we hated to leave. It had all the amenities you would need. The location is central and easy access to most everything is less than 30 minutes away. We spent a lot of time in Cavendish with the kids and it was very convenient. These things are very important to me. The back/front yard was a little paradise. We loved watching the tides and how the beach changes. The pictures are great but don't hold a candle to seeing it for yourself. We would totally rent here again:)

Spacious and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House had all amenities to make our week's stay both relaxing and comfortable. It is very quiet with splendid views of the sea. At low tide, you can walk all the way to the lighthouse on the far point. (It takes about 1 hour each way). Lots of opportunities to explore. Don't forget to try the ice cream at the corner store in Bedeque! We highly recommend the PEI Beach House on the Bay!

Tranqullity and beauty !!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a week of relaxation in majestic scenery. From Chelton, you are close to any place where tou would like to be for a visit. We had a chance to do cycling into the roads and lanes offering gorgeous sceneries.

Our host were up to our expectation.

It is really worth the trip. 5 Stars !!!

great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a 2 week stay. The cottage was well big enough for us, very clean, and came with all the anemities that we needed for our stay. It's a two bedroom, upstairs/downstairs, with a pull out couch.

Chelton Beach (2k)is an amazing beach, with a wonderful sandbar. The days we were there, there were no jellyfish, or seaweed. The jellyfish in Cavendish on our first day made swimming immpossible. We didn't see any jellies at Chelton, or in front of the cottage. YMMV of course!!

The community of Bedeque is under 5 minutes drive from the cottage. It is very small, and very friendly. We made some friends with the people at the corner store, the owners of the breakfast Cafe, a couple of people at the church. I would go thte corner shop every day for at least "something", so it was convenient to have it close by. We attended a fully packed Ceilidh on a Tuesday night at the United church in town. It was good. We went to two others on the island, and by far and away the best was Mike Pendergast and Tom McSwiggan. Even the kids were loving the music, and the banter between songs. Get there early, and get a seat. Fantastic show.

Travelling the entire Island on any given day and without a plan was fun. To drive 90 minutes to the North Cape, or east Point is not a big deal. The location of the cottage is very good considering the Bridge, and Summerside. Charlottetown is about 45 minutes. I did find myself going to the North side of the island pretty often, simply because of the stuff to do up there (mostly for the kids I guess). But it's not even a 30 minute drive.

We ate a tonne of shellfish. Sharkey's in Summerside has a great reputation, but they close at 7PM(!)-even on Friday and Saturday nights, so we never made it there. The Deckhouse on the peir was pretty good, Skip's Fish 'n Chips had excellent fish and chips. Our best meals were in Charlottetown and then a few other random restaurants around the island. The Pearl in Rustico, New Glasgow lobster suppers was pretty good (mostly experience really), Sydney and Victoria St's in Charlottetown.. There is no need to eat out so much however, as the cottage itself is fully equiped kitchen and BBQ.

Finally, a HUGE thanks to Diane for consistenly answering my many many many emails with patience and accuracy.

Diane was a huge help from beginning to end, and although I've never met her, it would have not been the same experience without her guidance, reassurances and general expterise on the Island.

Review of beach getaway on PEI

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage surrounded by lots of acreage and privacy. It is clean and very well kept. There is a place where you can enclose your dog and allow the dog to enjoy the screened in sun porch without access to the rest of the house.

The beach is lovely and uncrowded when the tide is out. There is no beach when the tide is in and that really is the only downside to this cottage.

All in all, I highly recommend it.
