During Peak-Season Portside rents Sat-Sat.
Portside cottage rests 75 feet from a 1000 foot long clean 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 PEI. We have 3 cottages on 20 acres and a completely private lane. You will share the beach with one other cottage whose property borders near Portside. 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 swim, and take advantage of all the sea life on the sandbars and tide-pools. You can 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.
Portside 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 offer a single blow-up mattress for any extra guests. There is a view of the Wood Islands lighthouse from all points of the shore side of the cottage. Portside has a 3.5 star Canada Select Rating.
We are 1 km from Plough 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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Homeport by the Sea. The cottage was very comfortable, clean, and the view was great. At low tide it was fun to go out on the beach and check the tide pools. Darryl (and Chase the dog) were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed learning about lobster fishing. Darryl was able to supply us with the freshest lobster we had ever eaten. So glad we visited in lobster fishing season! I recommend this property without hesitation. Wish we could have stayed longer. Submitted: Aug 05, 2018.
What a wonderful place to relax. We had a fantastic time here. The cottage was very spacious and extremely clean. Everything you need is provided! It has a beautiful deck with lots of seating and a bbq. You are only seconds from the ocean! Low tide is super fun with lots to explore and see. You can even walk out to the light house! Darryl the owner is super nice! He brought us some mackerel down and showed our son how to gut and prepare his own fish...it was delishious. Lots of sand toys and a playground for the kids to play with. If you like clams you can dig for them yourself and coom them up...I am sure Darryl would help if you needed along with his super cute dog Chase! We had a great time and hope to visit again!

Six women thoroughly enjoyed our time at Darryl's "Aft Cottage". Due to unexpected circumstances we found ourselves with nowhere to stay for our get-together. Darryl came to our rescue and his private, homey, comfortable and immaculate cottage was perfect for us. It was well stocked with all the amenities needed for our mini vacation.The kitchen had everything we needed and more. While gazing out at a little blast of winter the wood stoves kept us warm and toasty inside. The bedrooms were nicely furnished and the beds cozy. The setting is picturesque with a gently sloping meadow to the sandy beach we were encouraged to explore. We all had a great time and Darryl has definitely raised the bar. Submitted: Nov 29, 2018
We've stayed with Homeport twice now, once with Portside and once with Starboard and Portside. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience both times. Quiet and private on a fantastic beach with a great amount of exposure at low tide for ankle OR knee deep exploration.It's very clean and well maintained and Darryl is a very friendly and attentive host, Great guy! Never met Leslie but I'm sure you're a gem too It's P.E.I after all and everybody seems happy to see you. It's located on the quiet end of P.E.I but there's still plenty to do without all hubbub of the center Island vacationing crowd. We LOVE that. We'll definitely be going back, thanks for everything!
