About Steve

Having grown up in Cavendish every summer since he was a boy, Steve Arnold's love of the area and family brought him back after living in Montreal, Toronto, and Sydney Australia.

It was in Australia that he met Mr. Luke Everingham, owner/builder of the original Everingham Rotating House and decided that he wanted to build a similer house on the North Shore of PEI overlooking the beach.

in 2013 Steve & his wife Stephanie completed the rotating 2 level, 5000 sq ft Deltec home which features four self-contained luxury condos on the ground floor available for short or long term rental.

Steve purchased this condo in 2012

Why Steve chose Prince Edward Island

Relax in the morning sun with a coffee on your own 50’ deck, take a walk down the private path directly to the National Park life-guarded beach, or take an air-conditioned nap in your king size bed with crisp linens – whatever you decide, you can be sure that your stay on Lantern Hill Drive in North Rustico (one of PEI’s most exclusive neighborhoods) will provide you with a variety of options to ensure a very special stay.


Each spacious 625 sq ft suite has two beds can accommodate 5 people comfortably, and includes:

• Full size king bedroom with walk out patio door to your own 50’ private deck plus en-suite bathroom finished in luxurious granite

• 2nd queen bed and walk out patio door to your own 50’ private deck

• Full-size, quartz finished kitchen with stainless steel appliances, dish washer, microwave, LED lighting & coffee maker

• Quartz kitchen bar with bar stools

• Living room with sofa bed, 40” LED TV, & walk out patio door to your own private 50’ deck with picnic benches

• Free WiFi & Cable TV

• Your own BBQ

What makes this condo unique

COMPLIMENTARY GIFT BASKET with local goodies to have during your stay.


Tour of Canada's Rotating House - Come tour the 3000sqf specially designed, engineered, round basement supporting the 30 ton ROTATING “spider web” of Newcastle Australian steel above your head, upon which the entire house sits to overlook the North Rustico National Park beach cliffs.

Well, rounded vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the rotating house with our friends. We each rented our own condo. On arrival we were immediately met by our host, Steve. He was extremely thoughtful in giving us tips on restaurants and touring the island. He also provided us with things needed such as lobster pot and tools. He ensured that everyone got their fair share of the beautiful water views. The ability of the home to rotate is truly fascinating.The condo was definitely 5 star with all amenities. It was immaculately clean. The location is excellent. Very quiet and a close walk to a lovely beach. Restaurants, grocery, bakery and an amazing fish store are within walking distance. We rarely return to the same place but will make an exception with this home. We would love to take our family in the near future.

Our 2nd Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we knew why we had returned. It is a very cosy and well equipped suite. We appreciated the Welcome Basket filled with Island delights. The King size bed was just what we needed for a good nights sleep after busy days enjoying the Island. Being close to beach was great. We have enjoyed staying here in late November when the snow was blowing and also now in the Spring when ice was still around the coves, the suite was always cosy to come back too. Steve is a responsible host and ensures that you have everything you need. We look forward to returning some time soon

First Class!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as advertised - clean, modern and wonderful! Steve and his family are the perfect hosts - friendly and helpful! Large windows to enjoy the ever changing view. The very comfortable king bed was perfect for getting a good night's sleep. Twenty minute walk on the boardwalk to Doiron's Fish Market to buy fresh lobster and seafood to take home and enjoy. Can't say enough good things about this property and our stay there. Welcome basket was full of local delights.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Rotating House was great! The suites are brand new, spotless, and equipped with everything that you need! Steve was an outstanding host. He greeted us when we arrived and had lots of great information and suggestions of what to see and do during our stay. He even gave us his cell number so that we could text him if we had any questions while we were out and about during the day. I have booked through VRBO several times and this was by far the best experience that I've had. Everything exceeded my expectations and I would recommend the Rotating House to anyone visiting Canada's beautiful east coast!

Worth the trip even in rainy weather!

My husband and I loved this place, with its guaranteed view of the red cliffs, its modern decor, handy kitchen, luxurious shower, and fascinating engineering and architecture.

Steve is a wonderful host. The place is as described and I would certainly recommend it.
