Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful oceanfront home offering views of water in three directions. Great to take photographs of the sunsets and beautiful cloud formations each day and early evening. Perfect setting for those lobster dinners which can be purchased about 1/4 mile away at the wharf right off the boats.

Cannot beat the location for a romantic dinner on the three sided porch or upstairs deck off the master bedroom suite with tub and couch and the California King Sized Bed with canopy. Sit and relax on the couch with views of birds catching the wind drafts and sailing over the rock formations along the coast. Walk to the sandy beach and take a swim or walk along the gentle water. Downstairs private bedroom with door to side porch also has great oceanfront views.

Unique sea glass window and artistic tile work in the bathroom. Interesting shower outdoors and claw foot tub in master bedroom. Upgraded fixtures and decorations make this log home a very comfortable and pleasing environment for your vacation.

About Joanne Diffenbaugh

My husband and I met on Long Beach Island, New Jersey on the beach and have always wanted to have an oceanfront home where we can enjoy nature and the beauty of living on the ocean. After scouring the real estate market for years we finally found our dream location and home in Cape Wolfe, Prince Edward Island. It is a unique location and offers a person the place to get in touch with nature and have a perfect setting to eat those lobster dinners with the great water and sunset views:)

Joanne Diffenbaugh purchased this house in 2009

Why Joanne Diffenbaugh chose O'Leary

We had a great vacation when we rented this cottage and then decided to purchase it so we could have the oceanfront home of our dreams. The home has very unique artistic details and is a log home with rustic beams but modern conveniences.

What makes this house unique

Great location with a lovely beach to swim and explore. The property is situated on a bluff and has great water views as well as sunset views from an upstairs deck and downstairs wrap around porch and most windows in the home.

Want a relaxing vacation? Go to PEI

  • 4 of 5

Our week on PEI was great. From the cottage we stayed in, to the relaxing view, to the cool days and nights, to the friendly helpful people of PEI, to the delicious food everything was just perfect. By renting the cottage instead of a hotel room we were able to prepare some of our own food. With the water right there we didn't have to pack up the car and drive anywhere to go swimming. The cottage was fully equipped with everything you needed, even a cork screw to open our wine! Talk about sunsets, too. They were beautiful. Usually you don't pick to go on vacation to the same place a second time but in this case I would make the exception.

Our new favorite place to be

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation on the island, and we are already talking about returning. This home was everything we hoped it would be. Though it is a "log cabin", it is hardly rustic. The house is impeccably kept and had all the amenities we could want from kitchen items to internet service. It was as good or better than the description and pictures in the site listing.

The caretakers made our stay especially pleasant. They checked to make sure everything was in order, and then spoiled us with fresh quahogs and warm, buttered biscuits. A highlight of the trip for our 12 year old son was a ride on their boat, and helping unload the quahogs at the dock.

We could easily explore French Acadian villages, Charlottetown, and all the beautiful island scenery from this cottage. But, our favorite activity was staying home and exploring the long stretch of beach that didn't have anyone else on it. The views from the cottage are endless in every direction, and not even rainy weather could spoil this. It was exciting to sit by the window, or step out onto the wrap around porch, and watch the white caps on the water as the storm churned out to sea. A place that is enjoyable, even in bad weather, is a rare find.

Thank you, Joanne, for a perfect vacation. We hope to return some day.

Private and romantic paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We found this home to be absolutely amazing with the most beautiful and private views out to the ocean! We especially loved that the beach was very private and we could walk for a long time along the shore. The deck off the master bedroom was an awesome place to take in the sunsets. We can't wait to rent this home again!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family have visited this wonderful home 3 times and each visit has been fantastic! The cottage is lovely and fully equipped with everything you might need. Long walks on the beach, watching the sun rise and set, and fishing at the peer are our top favourite things to do. The culture, the hospitable people and fantastic seafood ranks PEI # 1 to our family and we can't wait to visit again !! Thank-you for sharing your home with us !!

Closest I have come to heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were so blown away by the amazing experience our family had the first time we couldn’t wait to get back to Cape Wolfe and the cottage again. We were not disappointed. The cabin is fantastic - beautiful, clean, well-appointed and equipped, full of light, perfectly situated to enjoy breathtaking views of the coast and incredible sunsets. The sound of the water, birds and gentle wind are hypnotic. We found ourselves relaxing on the porch for hours at a time. While watching the most beautiful sunset we had ever seen, a year of stress from living and working in the North East were gone by the end of the first day. The sun just seemed to hang on the horizon forever. The experience was so beautiful it defies description. The walks along the shore with an endless horizon of water on one side and commanding red cliffs on the other were amazing. We loved the hours of walking the beach searching for sea glass. I became a different person on those walks. All of the worries and pressures of back home disappeared and were replaced with sensations of happiness and peace. PEI is my favorite place on the planet. The surrounding area has great costal drives - with NO TRAFFIC. The seafood is incredible!!! The sky is a magnificent blue and the air is fresh. The people are friendly. The experience is completely unlike Cape Cod, the Jersey shore, etc. If you need restorative time (surrounded by the nature’s beauty) to recover from the stress of the world, this is the place. I wish I was back there now!

Beautiful, private, quiet - truly incredible Island experience for a week.

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a relaxing, wonderful, one week vacation in PEI. My husband grew up on the coast of PEI, and he wanted to share the best of the island with me and our teenage daughter, so our expectations we pretty high, given how beautiful he knew the island could be.

We rented this house along the West capes on the ocean and the accommodations, as well as the lovely couple renting the house could not have been better!! We are so grateful to have found this place. The photos in the listing are accurate and do not exaggerate the beauty of the spot, or the accommodations in any way. We have many memorable pictures of our own which show exactly what you are seeing in this listing.

The house was spacious, equipped to accommodate all of our needs and provided the most spectacular views in every direction. Artistically designed and decorated, the house had a welcoming atmosphere, very conducive to a beautiful family holiday. What really topped off the experience of renting this house, was the friendly, reliable and professional attention provided by the house owners prior to and during our time on the island. Any concerns we had were promptly and completely handled with care by them. The next time we visit PEI, we would not hesitate to head straight for this most picturesque spot on the ocean!
