Unique, picturesque, peaceful, seaside, artisan.....some of the words used to describe Victoria by the Sea, Prince Edward Island where our Starfish Beach House is located. Sitting next to the historic Victoria lighthouse The Starfish offers 5 acres of privacy, yet a leisurely stroll down our lane finds you right in the heart of the village.
Our rental is located in a very central location making it easy to explore the island on your vacation. Then again....if you prefer to just kick back and enjoy all the village and the south shore has to offer you could spend your whole time relaxing close to home. It's hard to resist the slow pace of the village in the summer yet there is always something to do We have our own private beach just a walk from the house or you can enjoy the public beach to the left of the wharf which is a great place to spend the afternoon listening to the squeals of happy kids wharf jumping on the high tide. There are public washrooms located just off the parking lot (close to the beach) for your convenience. If the sun gets too hot it's easy to take a break and take a stroll around the village and browse the shops.
We like to spend a couple of weeks staying at our beach house ourselves in July. We never let summer get away without relaxing on the deck (a few times) of Island Chocolate Factory sipping our lattes and eating a few chocolates. The Landmark Cafe is a great place to dine and the Lobster Barn is hugely popular with tourists and locals alike. Remember to make reservations in advance to save disappointment.
You can rent kayaks right at the village beach where the business is located in the Tourist Centre located by the parking lot. There are also many quaint little shops if you want to take home an authentic island souvenir.
In summer 2019 there will be opportunity to buy fresh lobster and oysters right at the village wharf. And yes...we do have a lobster pot at our rental!!!
