Wonderful week In North Rustico

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to PEI and North Rustico and I am now in love with it. We spent a week in this lovely Condo at the end of July 2014. What a great decision!, There were 2 couples in our group. The Condos are clean, beautiful and stocked with all the necessities. Very comfy beds, too! As this property overlooks the harbor and ocean, A wonderful place to enjoy the Island. The views from the boardwalk are awasome. We saw bald eagles flying overhead on more that one occasion, many Seagulls , a blue heron and we even spotted an osprey nest full of their young. When we were not on the beach: mackerel fishing with the Bearded Skipper's deep sea fishing was a highlight and we fried them up on the BBQ provided.

The owner Kelvin, was quick to respond to any questions and concerns and made the whole rental process so much easier than previous ones.

Everything was perfect about this condo and location, which contributed to a relaxing, joyful vacation. We recommend it highly :)

Thank you Kelvin!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property was great. The village of North Rustico and the harbour were wonderful as well. The actual unit is in need of a facelift to repair cracked floors, marked walls, and general wear and tear. A fresh coat of paint would improve the appearance. A brighter light in the bathroom would also be a big improvement. The level of cleanliness could be improved. The bathroom looked dirty around the toilet and in the bedrooms, the floors were also not very clean in some areas. The kitchen was not as well stocked as anticipated. Some simple additions such as a can opener and a brush to clean the BBQ would have been nice. The owner was a very nice and welcoming person so thank you Kelvin! This is meant to be constructive criticism that I hope you will find helpful.

Wonderful location! Great host!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for what we needed. It was clean and comfortable and the price was unbeatable. It was very close to the water and the North Rustico lighthouse. It is also just down the street from The Blue Mussel Cafe, which was recommended all over the island to us as the best place to eat...and it did not disappoint! The host was very helpful and welcomed us in person to the property. He also provided us with passes to Green Gables and PEI National Park, which was very nice! Charlottetown is just a short trip away (about a 30 minute scenic drive). The charm of being out of the city was nice but since it was so close we went into the city twice. The only thing I will say is, if you are wanting to be right on the water without any obstruction of the view (a few houses, power lines), then this may not be the place for you. For some reason, we were under the impression we would be on the water (our own assumption based on pics/description), while we were VERY near the NR Bay and could see it from the condo, it was an obstructed view, nonetheless, we were still VERY pleased. The water and boardwalk was just a short walk away, as was a nice little grocery store and Fisherman's Wharf, where you can get a great lobster meal with a buffet and of course souvenirs. For the price you simply cannot do any better than this property in my opinion. It is in a beautiful part of town, the host is wonderful and the condo is nice and clean with everything you need. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again!
