The Dunes is a modern beach house built on a peninsula that stretches along the north shore of PEI between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Darnley Basin. The beach house is perfect for couples or families and is ideal for four to six people. The 900 square foot home features a knotty pine interior with open vaulted ceilings in the living room, dining room and kitchen. The open living area looks out over a large deck to Darnley Basin through two sliding patio doors. It boasts a modern well-equipped kitchen with a ceramic cooktop stove, side by side refrigerator (ice and water), built-in dishwasher, and microwave oven.
