Overview

About the property

Three cottages very close to deep sandy beach. Lots of privacy.

Homeport pine cottage measures 20' x 20'. It has two bedrooms. One bedroom has a double bed, and the other one has two single blow-up mattresses. There is no oven. It has a microwave, hot plate, toaster, fridge, washer, electric kettle and coffee maker. There is no amount of living room furniture other than a small 2 seater wicker settee. There is a clothesline for outdoor drying, and a wooden drying rack for indoor. There is a 3 piece bathroom.

Homeport cottages are down a completely private lane on a 20 acre parcel that faces the Northumberland Strait on the southernmost tip of P.E.I. The South Shore has warmer water and calmer seas than the north shore. The cove is shaped like a big horseshoe, and we are right in the middle. Enjoy beautiful sunrise/sunsets. The property has a beautiful 1000 foot long white and red deep 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, with lots of room for everyone to have their own privacy on the beach. You can search for bar clams, rock crabs, sand dollars, and hermit crabs on the sandbars at low tide, as well as walk for miles and explore in the tide pools or just relax on the warm sand and look for sea glass and other treasures along the shore. Great for swimming and and fun for kids building sandcastles. There is plenty of room on the beach and lots of large umbrellas with wooden tables, and chaise loungers to catch some shade on hot afternoons. Seals can be spotted sunbathing near the lighthouse.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed with Homeport twice now, once with Portside and once with Starboard and Portside. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience both times. Quiet and private on a fantastic beach with a great amount of exposure at low tide for ankle OR knee deep exploration.

It's very clean and well maintained and Darryl is a very friendly and attentive host, Great guy! Never met Leslie but I'm sure you're a gem too It's P.E.I after all and everybody seems happy to see you.

It's located on the quiet end of P.E.I but there's still plenty to do without all hubbub of the center Island vacationing crowd. We LOVE that.

We'll definitely be going back, thanks for everything!

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!
