About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)


Our 4-season waterfront vacation home is located in the village of North of PEI's most popular vacation destinations! North Rustico is a small, active, fishing village located just east of Cavendish. We are a 20 minute drive from the airport, a 45 minute drive from the Confederation Bridge and 25 minutes from downtown Charlottetown.

The house has a panoramic view of Rustico Bay and morning coffee on the deck is a great way to start any day! Local fishing boats pass by hourly and deep sea fishing is a popular activity. Stroll on the boardwalk, spend the afternoon on the beautiful sandy beach (5 min walk to supervised swimming in the National Park) or if you are more daring, jumping from the breakwater at the mouth of the harbour is a popular local activity!! Choose one of many local restaurants for dinner. Sunsets from the front deck are breathtaking!

June and September are excellent months for golf enthusiasts and the local lobster season is in full swing by mid-May!

The house offers a water view master bedroom with a queen-size bed and a second bedroom with your choice of two twin beds or one king size bed. There is a TV/familyroom on the lower level. The living room overlooks the harbour and the large eat-in kitchen is fully equipped for quick snacks or gourmet dining.

Located on the south side of the eastern tip of the Cavendish National Park, the house offers the best of PEI in any season. Enjoy the local boardwalk, which connects the harbour entrance to the village centre. A short drive takes you to Prince Edward Island's capital 'Charlottetown', the National Historic site of Green Gables or one of several world class golf courses.

If you prefer a slower pace, leave your car home and walk or ride a bike to beaches, shopping, lobster suppers, waterfront cafes, kayak rentals. Experience the true joy of coastal living in one of PEI's most popular vacation areas.

The house is decorated in colors inspired by the sea and offers everything to make your vacation a fond memory. The large front deck has a patio table and chairs.

Great spot for our young famiily

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Whitesails.

The location was ideal for our two young children - they could bike the boardwalk to the park, kids activities and live music set up by the people of North Rustico.

As well, short drive towards Cavendish or to Charlottetown as well as many awesome beaches.

The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we thought we would need.

The owners were helpful and made a point to drop by and say hello during our stay.

We look forward to our next trip out east and hopefully staying again at Whitesails :)

Relax in North Rustico

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our time at Whitesails. We have 6 and 8 year old daughters. The home was very clean and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. We appreciated the beach towels, laundry, toys for the kids. The girls each had their own bed in the second bedroom. The area is in close proximity to all amenities and it's nice and quiet. Allan, the owner, was very quick to respond to any inquiries. We really enjoyed the North Rustico beach, Brackley Beach, Basin Head, Green Gables, the Garden of Hope, touring the various galleries and we had a nice meal at the PEI Preserve Company. The bakery and ice cream shop in town were a hit with our girls. Thank you Allan for all of your help. We really had a great vacation!

I was fortunate to be able to book White Sails for a last minute getaway for my friend, my daughter and 3 year old granddaughter. I learned about it from my sister who has it rented for a little later. I've been vacationing on the Island for over 20 years and normally stay in Stanley Bridge area but I've always wanted to try North Rustico. I was not disappointed. The cottage was so well stocked and homey, and very clean. The owners were wonderful to work with. I brought my binoculars and they were well used on the deck overlooking the harbor. To be able to walk to the beach, restaurants, store, playground, shops and bakery was wonderful, not to mention strolling down the boardwalk! Blue Mussel Cafe was outstanding. Yellow House take out was a delightful surprise. One special treat I would recommend if you're traveling with children is Island Hill Farm, where the goats and other animals will delight both young and old. Of course, our old stand by, the Preserve Co is not to be missed and something new for us, a wood fired oven pizza from Glasgow Glen, which is very close by. I love Prince Edward Island and hope to visit White Sails again!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house in North Rustico from the moment we arrived. Very well appointed house with everything you could want or need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We loved being able to walk the boardwalk each day and enjoy the ocean and quaint fishing boats etc. Nice little restaurant at the point of the boardwalk within close walking distance. Great private backyard with bbq. Large front deck overlooking the ocean across the road. We have already booked our return vacation and we are counting the days.

Great stay at Whitesails in North Rustico

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two young children and I spent the week at Whitesails and we couldn't have been happier.

Whitesails rental property in North Rustico is an ideal place to stay in PEI. Walk five minutes along the boardwalk in one direction and you arrive at the beach or Blue Mussel Cafe. Walk five minutes in the other direction and you arrive at some shops, the playground and the amazing bakery (try the fresh donuts).

Whitesails was clean, very well appointed and very comfortable. Great deck on the front to watch the fishing boats. Wifi access and Netflix for a quiet night in. Park pass so you can drive to Cavendish beach or any park on the island. There's even some toys, a stool to access the sink and some beach toys.

Whitesails is central - 25 min from Charlottetown, 5 min drive to Cavendish. Easy to get to any point of interest on the island. There is a road between the cottage and boardwalk/ocean - speed limit is 50km but people drive slowly and it's not busy - mainly some cars going to the Blue Mussel Cafe - never heard cars in the evening. The house is set back quite a bit from the road.

Blue Mussel Cafe is great and has a kid menu. We went three times! They don't take reservations so get there early or be prepared to wait (it's worth it). The Lobster Supper restaurant in North Rustico was just OK.

I really can't recommend Whitesails enough. It's ideal for young families and for those who like the option to walk to dinner, the store or along a picturesque beach!
