Large Oceanfront Summer Home on Beautiful Howe Bay

Bedrooms 5
Space 2,800 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

A beautiful summertime retreat, our 'Summer Home' offers all the comforts of home in an incredible oceanfront setting!

The house was thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the magnificent scenery of Howe Bay with windows and sliding glass doors all along the front of the building. High vaulted ceilings and skylights provide an open, airy and illuminated summer living area.

The gourmet kitchen is built centrally around a large island and features a countertop gas cooking surface with side grill, built-in convection and microwave ovens as well as all other new Electrolux Icon appliances. Fully equipped with Island made Paderno cookware, chefs and cooks will find all that they may wish for. The long dining room table seats many and provides a wide view of the ever changing tides.

For many of our guests, the large screened-in porch is the ultimate summer room: breakfast or lunch with a view and lazy afternoons reading or napping on comfortable day beds while enjoying the sounds of the sea and lovely ocean breeze... (Sun lovers may prefer the tiered cedar decks with comfortable lounging chairs and outdoors dining/sitting area!)

Leave the cool porch and find seating elsewhere in the house: a bright front sitting room with a 12 feet wide patio-door and spectacular panoramic view, a quiet cozy evening area in front of the wood burning fireplace and a separate TV room with large plasma flat screen unit and home theater sound system. The upstairs bedrooms also have quiet corners with chairs and couches.

With five bedrooms (three queen size beds and two doubles + single pull out lazy boy couch) and four bathrooms (two of these en suite), the house will easily accommodate up to 11 -and more- people.

Plan to walk and explore the miles of deserted beaches and vast sand bars; venture out with the large canoe or two-men kayak at your disposition; dive into the deep water at the sandy point and try to swim against the current; or run over the sand and the shallows into the waves and the high surf... At the end of the day, sit around a lively bonfire under the stars and enjoy the very best of company!

Fabulous spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family reunion. The house was roomy enough for all of us, as well as beautiful, and the views were fabulous! It was stocked with everything we needed for the week. I would highly recommend it.

A Truly Magical Place!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure my review can adequately describe how incredible this house rental is. There were two families total on our trip and we had four adults and 5 children (ages 14, 9, 6 and two). The house accommodated us so well and provided a wonderful home base for our week. My family travels regularly and we always rent through home away. I'm pretty picky about the places we rent and spend days researching potential houses. I read the reviews before renting this house and knew that previous renters absolutely loved it, so I went in with high expectations. I have to say that this place absolutely exceeded my expectations. The location is incredible. We all loved kayaking in the bay, exploring the vast sand bars, and playing in the large yard. We could not have asked for a better location for our families. But, it wasn't just the location that was amazing. The house was beyond anything we could have dreamed of. It was SO clean and spacious and the kitchen was stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. We all love to cook and eat, so we really put it to use each night. I miss the espresso maker we had at our disposal each day too! If you're looking for a rental in PEI, you really don't need to look at any other locations. This house is the best you'll find on the island, and Jovette and Lawrence are incredible hosts.

Beautiful home by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing and the owner was very kind and helpful. The views of the ocean were beautiful. The home was spacious with many personal touches and creative comfortable decorating. Being a gardener and orchid lover I really appreciated the live plants and orchids in the home. This property was much bigger than the two of us needed and would accommodate a much larger group very nicely. Being so large it was chilly when we arrived but we built a nice fire and relaxed under the handmaid throws and just enjoyed the views.

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome. The only negative was it was hard to get to. It had everything we needed and wanted. Super comfortable and relaxing.

Wonderful - everything promised and more!

  • 5 of 5

I don't often leave reviews because there are too often big disappointments. Not this time! This property was everything we hoped for and more. And the owners went out of their way to ensure our stay was memorable by offering ideas svc recommendations for our family. Amazing memories!

We are located on Howe Bay, along the north-eastern coastline of the island, 10 minutes from the small harbour town of Souris (bank, post-office, groceries, hardware store, pharmacy, hospital...) and 45 minutes from Charlottetown, the island's capital city.

Some nearby attractions: Championship Golfing (Dundarave, The Links at CrowBush); Greenwich Dunes National Park... a long hike through gorgeous sand dunes and interpretive path; Basin Head Beach... a favorite hot spot for many of our summer guests; North Lake Harbour... home to the tuna fisheries and deep sea fishing expeditions; The East Point Lighthouse, still in use, the most easterly point on the island; Outdoors concerts of fiddle music or 'ceilidhs’; summer theater, blueberry picking, clamming, seal watching cruises, sea-kayaking, board paddling on the Fortune River, Confederation Trail biking...

Other Activities: We fell in love with Howe Bay the moment we saw it! That was almost 20 years ago... All these many years later, we still marvel at the magnificent scenery of Howe Bay, forever changing and reappearing right in front of you... Plan to walk and explore the deserted beaches, clam flats and vast sandbars... At low tide, take the canoe over the deep water channel in the middle of the bay to the even greater expanse of sand bars across the way... Splash with your little ones into wonderful pools of water left behind by the tide over the sand and heated by the sun... Feel the undulating ridges of sand under your feet and run far over the shallow water and into the surf... Dive from the sandy point into the deep water of the channel and try swimming against the current or let it wash you over to the flats... Then, on a quiet evening, enjoy a lively bonfire while looking at the still waters of the bay!

Golf: We are located within 20 minutes of these spectacular championship golf courses:

Brudenell River Golf Course

Dundarave Golf Course

The Links at Crowbush Cove

(Advanced bookings are recommended.)
