North Rustico House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Enjoy your island holiday in our fully equipped vacation home. Newly built in 2005, our 3 bedroom home is on a large, very private acreage. The property overlooks the Clyde River Valley and Rustico Bay, with distant views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Glasgow Hills Hideaway will appeal to those who enjoy peaceful mornings and relaxing evenings in a quiet, natural setting. Yet, the island's top tourism destinations are very close at hand. Within five minutes, you can be in New Glasgow, North Rustico or Cavendish. Its ideal central location, combined with its beautiful, private setting, make Glasgow Hills Hideaway an outstanding vacation choice.Ideal for two couples or a family.

We are a couple in our mid sixties who made the permanent move to PEI in 2009 from our native Ontario. We had been visitors to the island for many years, and fell in love with it like so many others. We built Glasgow Hills Hideaway with the intention of renting it when we unable to use it in 2005. After a few years of longing to be in PEI more than a few weeks a year, we made the move to the quaint fishing village of North Rustico. We love our life on the island and haven't looked back. We have three sons. Our eldest son Jeff and his wife Corie live in New York City with their 4 children all under the age of 5. Jeff is a busy anesthesiologist. They are making a move to Raleigh-Durham this spring. Our middle son David and his wife Laura live in Toronto with their three children 8, 5 and 3. David practices law and is a partner with a large Toronto firm. Our youngest son Brad and his wife Julie have an 18 month old little girl and expecting their second this summer. Brad is an elementary teacher in Toronto and lives in Richmond Hill. We all gather in PEI in the summer and our children and grandchildren love it as much as we do. Jeff and I have been in the antique business for more than 35 years and Jeff is a retired high school teacher. We sneak away to Florida for a few months until those warm breezes return to the island and we can get back on our bikes and hit the trails. A very important member of the family I have neglected to mention is our 10.5 year old border collie. I hope that gives a little introduction to the Gadsden family.

This property is set high on a hill with fabulous views. The setting is rural, yet only minutes to North Rustico that offers all amenities. We have excellent reviews telling us how much our guests love the privacy, the layout of the home, the 60' veranda, screened in porch and back deck. The furnishings are attractive and comfortable, with top quality linens and bedding. The two living areas and two four piece baths are ideal for a family or two couples. Begin your day with a cup of coffee on the front deck watching the eagles sore overhead. After a hectic day at the beach a glass of wine and setting sun are a joy on the back deck. Maybe a game of horseshoes while the kids play on the swing and in the sandbox. Our consistent 5 out of 5 reviews really tell it all.

Peace and solitude yet close to great restaurants, the beach, amusement parks, water parks, grocery stores, pharmacy, liquor store, fish market hiking and biking trails in the National Park.

Still dreaming of PEI!

PROS:
House was well equipped with everything you could possibly need
Owners were very responsive and available to any concerns/questions
Very quiet and serene location with a a beautiful wildflower field in the back yard
Great location - we loved the villages of North Rustico, Cavendish, Mayfield, and New Glasgow
Very clean
Wonderful restaurants nearby

CON:
My only comment is the house is about a 10 minute drive from town/beaches and is located on a dirt road. It was not a concern for us - in fact we rather enjoyed our quiet surroundings - but if you want to be in the middle of the action it might be something to consider.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: We hated to leave and while we can't come back this year, we hope to be back next year. We enjoyed our stay so much that we might consider a vacation home of our own on PEI!

This property was ideal for our extended family of 4's vacation. Layout of the house provides private space upstairs and down, and the views of the sunrise and sunset are wonderful. The kitchen is well-equipped and the property is extremely well maintained, inside and out. The owners are most helpful, e-mailing ahead of time and contacting us on arrival to make sure everything is alright. The telephone and internet were appreciated. Some good restaurants are a short distance away in New Glasgow, not to mention the renowned St. Ann's Church Lobster Dinners 5 minutes away. It was also a good location from which to travel along the Gulf Coast as well as into Charlottetown. After some busy days exploring the island, it was nice to come home to our country "retreat". We highly recommend this VRBO property to others vacationing on PEI.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your excellent review. So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We hope to have you back with us on the island some time in the future. Cheers, Wendy and Jeff

The house was immaculate and comfortable, with everything you might need, from cookware to beach gear, fire pit, etc. The location was great, just short drive from Cavendish, several beaches, restaurants, etc. The owners were very helpful, just an email or phone call away.

What a wonderful place. Hidden away from the "tourists", yet close enough to all attractions, golf, restaurants, etc. The place was immaculate & the owners were nearby when needed-- yet were not intrusive. The pictures accurately describe the house.

Glasgow Hills Hideaway exceeded our expectations in every way. The owners seem to have thought of every possible thing to make their guests totally comfortable. The house was immaculate. This is a home away from home, not a cottage. We hated to leave and plan on returning next year.

Excellent Accommodation - lots of room and amenities for the four of us. Very very comfortable. Wendy and Jeff, you went out of your way to help us. The house layout made it easy to load and unload our golf equipment to the vehicle. Close to good golf courses, bakeries (mmm..), shopping and routes for touring the island. Only 40 minutes from Charlottetown or 15 minutes from Victoria By The Sea for a day outing. Only 10 minutes to Cynthia McLeod's Ceilidh for an entertaining evening. Highly recommended.
