About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Summerhaven Beach House is a spectacular fully updated century home located oceanfront and overlooking miles of surf and sand; a vacation spot that is truly PEI. Breathtaking views in all directions - beach combing at your doorstep with new treasures to find each day. Relax on the oceanfront deck with views of both the sunset and sunrise.

Southern exposure makes this one of the warmest beaches on the Island. At low tide hundreds of acres of sand are exposed leaving shallow tide pools that are warmed by the sun. It is a perfect spot for swimming, walking, and exploring. The waters here are warm and inviting and perfect for families and young children.

Located within minutes of the charming village of Victoria-by-the-Sea there is theatre, fishing, kayaking, antiquing and restaurants nearby.

The living room and kitchen both overlook the beach and stunning blue ocean so when you aren’t sitting outside, you can still keep it in view from indoors.

Eight people can sleep comfortably at Summerhaven. There are three spacious bedrooms upstairs - each one with a big window to let in the fresh ocean breezes and a view of the ocean.

The history of Summerhaven is unique - Designed by Island architect C.B. Chappell and originally built for the PEI Railroad, it was home to Railroad Stationmasters since 1900. The house was recently fully restored and moved here to the ocean.

Your PEI vacation awaits!

Guestbook comments from the owner

WE had a great time at Summerhaven. Our son loved building sand castles and jumping in tidal pools. The beach at low tide is magical. We hope that we can come back next summer for a longer stay. Thanks for all your hospitality.

My heart home . . .

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Carol & Mike for sharing paradise. I wait all year for my escape to the island. The tides, red sand beach and Summerhaven! The details in every room make it feel like home to me. I know many times through the winter ahead I will close my eyes and feel myself sitting in front of the big picture window watching the ocean and it's changing faces. I always leave a piece of my heart at Summerhaven. I'll be back to look for it next year.* Cindy

I did a lot of research to find the perfect property for our stay on PEI. It did not disappoint. The house is wonderful and the location is incredible. We walked just a little way along the beach and saw the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen in my life!!! We fell in love with the town Victoria that is about 10 minutes away. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it an 11. 😊?

Beautiful sea cottage & beach access, amazing natural scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation property by the sea, the best beach access, most beautiful natural scenery on a quiet road with pastoral surroundings. Quick access to Victoria by the Sea and some quaint local stops such as a Cafe and Antique shops.

The property had all the amenities required plus some lovely extras - heated outdoor beach shower, propane seafood cooker etc. It was also beautifully decorated with art from the island, and very clean and well maintained.

Overall a wonderful PEI experience.

Hard to leave...

  • 5 of 5

It was hard to leave Summerhaven. This place quickly became 'home' to our kids- they settled in and felt comfortable right away. Nothing can beat the view in the morning with a coffee in hand. The private beach was something we all had to visit everyday, multiple times, especially at low tide- a cove within a cove. We stayed here as a family of 5 (kids aged 9, 8, and 5), plus my parents, as a multi-generational family vacation. Endless beach combing, fox-spotting, walks, and swimming for us all. The house has so much charm, the rooms are comfortable, and Carol was so responsive to any questions we had. If we return someday, we will definitely be booking Summerhaven again! Thank you for hosting us, and the special touches to make us feel welcomed and valued as renters.

Beautiful view. Lovely house,

Maison très agréable et confortable. Une vue magnifique sur la mer et les marées. Les chambres pourraient bénéficier de stores, car le soleil matinal réveille tôt. Cuisine très bien pourvue. Très satisfaite dans l'ensemble.

This is a lovely property that made our vacation all the more special. It is right on the water, making for delightful views. The house is very well equipped and everything you need is there. At low tide there is plenty of beach to explore.

The location of the house makes for easy exploration of PEI, no matter which direction you go. Victoria by the Sea is close by with a number of great restaurants.

Lastly, dealing with VRBO and Carol, the owner, was very easy, and made for a worry free vacation.
