Family fun at the shore
During Peak-Season Starboard rents Fri-Fri mostly in high season.
Starboard cottage rests 75 feet from a very large clean deep red and white sandy beach. The cottage faces the Northumberland Strait on the southernmost tip of PEI with the warmest waters and calmest seas on the Island. We have 3 cottages spread over 20 acres and a completely private lane. If you love the beach, you will be right at home here. There is a big change in the tide every day. At high tide you can swim or walk along the shore and search for sea glass and other treasures. When the tide is low you can also swim, and take advantage of all the sea life on the sandbars and tide-pools. Walk for miles on the bare sandbars at low tide or dig some bar clams. There are plenty of chaise loungers, small wooden tables, and umbrellas on the beach to catch some shade on hot afternoons.

Starboard is a 2 bedroom cottage with cathedral ceilings in the open concept kitchen/living/dining rooms. One bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the second bedroom has a single over double bunk-bed. We have a single blow-up mattress for any extra guests. Enjoy a view of the Wood Islands lighthouse from all points of the south side of the cottage. We have a 3.5 star Canada Select Rating.

We are 1 km from Plough Through The Waves visitor information center with a liquor outlet and shops. Service stations, banking institutions, and grocery stores are located in Montague, a 15 minute drive North. Two golf courses are within 15 minutes.

Wood Islands Seafood and Takeout has all your seafood needs with live or cooked lobster, sandwiches, chowder, haddock, clams, mussels, oysters, scallops, salmon, etc. at 84 Lighthouse Road at the Wood Islands Wharf.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include a shower.

5/5 Excellent

That view each morning!
Our family enjoyed our stay at Starboard cottage. We really liked being so close to the water, waking up each morning to the sounds of the surf and the kids loved walking out when the tide was low, checking out the sea life and birds. Saw some beautiful birds and even a seal out in the distance! 20-30 minutes drive to area communities and to explore lighthouses... Proximity to the ferry to NS can't be beat. It was a little buggy but probably just the time of year. Cottage was clean and comfortable, and Darryl offered advice for things to do whenever we asked. A happy stay!

5/5 Excellent

Our family of 14 stayed in 3 cottages and we had a fantastic family vacation
Excellent experience - the private beach with clam digging gave the children Lloyd to learn & go. Darryl was a great host - making sure all our needs were taken care of - we’ll be vack😎
