About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

RENT NOW FOR THE SUMMER! Ocean Edge is located on a private beach, offering panoramic views of the water and PEI's famous sand dunes from the wrap-around deck, the screened-in great room, or the glassed in 'lookout' on the upper level. Our beach house is located at the end of a quiet peninsula on Darnley Basin, Malpeque, PEI. Ocean Edge is a fully equipped 2000 square foot home that sleeps 8. Not only is Ocean Edge located on an acre of land, the house is spacious, offering all the comforts of home.

The options are endless - enjoy the feeling of this private ocean escape while listening to the waves lap against the shore. Let the smell of the fresh salt air take you a million miles away, all the while, being close to many of the island's most sought after amenities. Put your sea kayak in the water just steps off the back deck, comb your own beach for shells or other treasures, bike to the well-known sandy beach at Cabot Provincial Park or Thunder Cove just a few kilometers away. Play a round of golf or watch your seafood meal being taken off the boat at an authentic PEI oyster shack just up the road.

Finally, Kensington is only ten minutes away, offering everything necessary to make your stay enjoyable. We look forward to giving you a week to escape.

About Joe Mantegna

My wife Shelly and I bought our dream house in PEI in 2005. We enjoy making memories in PEI with our three children and would like to share our beach house with you.

Joe Mantegna purchased this house in 2005

Why Joe Mantegna chose Malpeque

After spending our honeymoon in the Maritimes and a golf get-away in PEI, my wife and I had to own our dream home in a place where the only thing nicer than the ocean scenery was the people. We have never regretted making PEI our home away from home, as it has all the simple pleasures that we look for in a family escape.

What makes this house unique

An ideal day at Ocean Edge would be breakfast on the deck with the sun glistening off the water, while watching the lobster boats come and go. Followed by a walk on our sandy beach, a ride in the sea kayak, a round of golf, a long bike ride or a snuggle with a good book. Later, a seafood dinner and home in time to watch the sunset over the water from our second floor 'lookout' with the sound of the waves in the background.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The internet doesn't do this cottage justice...what a relaxing and peaceful place to steal away for a week. I couldn't wait to get up in the morning to have coffee on the deck. Aside from the amazing views, the fishing village around the corner was fascinating for our children. Make sure you visit Thunder Cove Beach (just a few km away), the water was warm and the beach goes on forever....the golf wasn't bad either.

One of the best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Dear Shelly and Joe,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of my family and myself. We truly enjoyed spending a week at your cottage. The house, the beautiful view and the quiet of the area was only surpassed by the amazing sunsets we were able to see directly from the deck or from the lobby at the second floor.

The no wifi connection gave my family a reason to spend more time playing board games or outdoor games. I don't remember last time when we talk so much each other. Please do not change this in the future. Let the people enjoy the nature and connect together.

Shelly and Joe, we will definitely come back to your cottage one day and we will recommend it to our friends.

Thanks again!

Silviu and his family :)

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for some well deserved downtime and an opportunity to enjoy all PEI has to offer, this home is a great choice. It was very clean and provided everything we needed for our family to stay comfortably. The three bedrooms were spacious, the kitchen was well equipped, the bathrooms and showers were great and the outside was amazing. The beach was right there out the sliding glass doors and we all enjoyed sitting on the large decks watching the sunsets and herons who live along the neighbouring inlet. We dealt directly with Joe, the owner, who was very helpful arranging our last minute reservation. We will certainly return.

Wonderful Home with Amazing Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at your incredible Beach House; It is just as pictured. The surrounding landscape and water views are stunning!!! Beautiful pink skies at sunset. The house is equipped with everything that you need. The washer and dryer is a nice bonus. We loved the Knotty Pine. This setting is truly peaceful and quiet.

My husband and I slept like babies.

We loved the loft upstairs where we enjoyed reading, napping and listening to the wind and looking out at the awesome view of the surrounding bay. We saw different kinds of birds and rabbits and even a fox! Such beautiful scenery all around PEI! Lot's to do;

kayaking, snorkeling, beautiful beaches, biking, water parks, music and great food! Shelly & Joe are very personable and professional people. Renting was a very smooth transaction. I really did a lot of searching on line and you won't find a better place to stay than Ocean Edge Beach House on PEI. You will absolutely love it!!!

A Great Place to Relax and Get Away From it All!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and from the moment we walked in we were amazed. It had all the amenities and the views were outstanding. We watched the fishing boats come in and out of the harbour. We toured the area and went to a few of the local beaches which were just amazing. If you're a seafood lover you'll love the Island. We had 3 lobster suppers. Suggest Brothers 2 in Summerside & New Glasgow Lobster Supper restaurant. The other in Cavendish I cant remember but it was also good. Our best meal was at the Malpeque Oyster Barn for lunch. The Scallops & Oysters Rockefeller were melt in your mouth amazing! The home is very private on a large lot on the Malpeque Basin and you can sit and watch the fisherman coming in to get their daily catch. Would definitely recommend staying here as a family or a romantic holiday.

This location will leave you breathless, cottage is beautifully situated one step away from heaven

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was absolutely breathtaking with its location and design. We enjoyed our stay very much. We had a beautiful little catered wedding in front of it, the weather was beautiful and everything was perfect.

The children liked the option of choosing the beds to sleep in. Sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking and are all on my camera. This cottage is very nicely equipped with cooking pots, pans, lots of plastic and ceramic dishes. Plastic stuff comes in very handy with kids around.

Washrooms are great with washer and dryer right there to get the beach stuff washed.

To answer the questions on this website about it:

Description of cottage was very accurate, regarding the location. The photos of the property reflected exactly what was there. The cottage and surroundings were clean and well maintained.

The owners were accommodating and personable. We would recommend this place to the family and friend, as a matter of fact we have already done so. We loved the Thunder Cove beach nearby, the antique shops, the Trail Rides with the kids in Brackley Beach, Burlington Amusement park, and many other natural spots. One of the greatest things we appreciated was the privacy and tranquility of the place. Early mornings were my husbands and my personal favorites.
