Reserved this property at the end of April for a 3 night stay in September 2022. Check in was scheduled for September 28th, 2022 but Hurricane Fiona hit the island on September 24th so, after seeing reports of the damage on TV - along with a Government request to avoid visiting the island - we advised Steve that we would not be coming. As of October 13th, 2022 (today) we've received no refund. Thanks Steve and enjoy the $640.55 we paid!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Steve's Rotating House. It is as cool as it sounds. Offering multiple views of the countryside/ocean during our stay was really fun. But the fact that this unique place spins is only one reason we loved it: our suite was so well thought-out, decorated, clean and beautiful. And the location is amazing, so close to the beach and great restaurants (a short, scenic walk). Steve has really thought of everything and is a charming, helpful host. We particularly appreciated the time he spend explaining some of the inner-workings of this engineering marvel. Highly recommended!

Steve is an amazing host with an amazing property. The space was perfect and had everything we needed. The views were never boring and simply spectacular. About an 8 minute walk to the beach and or local harbor. We would highly recommend staying here if ever on the island. Perfectly located on the north shore with tons of places near by to explore and eat at.

We booked out all four condos of the rotating house for a bachelorette party. Steve was super responsive and beyond helpful. The condos, apart from being beautiful, were nice and clean. Beds were comfortable and everyone slept great. The view and location were cherry on top. Look forward to staying again.

We loved our stay here! It was exactly as described and such a unique experience. Great location with some amazing seafood restaurants right down the road, a beautiful view of the water, and a beautiful beach just below the house. Beds were super comfy! Despite a death in the family, the host Steve was still willing to give us a tour of the basement and was quick to answer messages. This place is at the top of my list of accommodations in PEI! We will definitely be back.

We were fortunate to have booked 3 condos for my husband's 65th birthday celebration...8 adults and 4 children. The accommodations were absolutely amazing and we felt at home for 5 nights. Steve was the perfect host and attentive to all our needs. PEI (first visit) was beyond expectations!

The house rotates! Need I say more! Such an interesting concept - we just had to give it a try! The normal things we travelers look for - super clean, nicely decorated and a very reasonable rate. The bonus - it has everything you want, just like home - every tool you could want in the kitchen - I could have baked cookies … but nah... there's a nice little grocery store just down the road.

Upon arrival, the cleanliness of the condo was amazing. The place was immaculate. The attention to detail was almost mind blowing. My partner and I booked 2 nights in the winter season (Great for some nights in, would probably be even more fun in the summer!) When booking, I thought the rotation of the condo would lose its charm quickly. To my surprise it didn't! I found myself looking out at the street one hour, going to watch TV for a bit then looking out again and seeing the ocean. A neat experience to say the least. The bed was extremely comfy, and for someone who doesn't get a very good sleep away from home, I slept like a baby. Some things I wondered before going... Can you feel it rotate? I personally couldn't. You can see it rotate just not feel it. Will it rotate even in bad weather? It appears so! We had snow the day we arrived and to my surprise it was still rotating! Would all kitchenware be provided? Yes! Anything you'd need to cook is included. (Nightmares from a stay at a different trip had me wondering this.) As for accessibility, it is accessible with ramps. However if you are in a wheelchair there are small-medium lips to get into the door and shower. Shower has handrail also. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to stay on PEI or are just looking for a little staycation. Thank you to the host for an awesome stay!

Our stay at Around the Sea was perfect in every way! The attention to detail in the condo unit was amazing. Everything was polished, shiny, tidy and organized. The coffee pot alone glistened...hard to believe that everything had been used by guests before us..it all looked brand new!! The beds were extremely comfortable, the shower was spa quality and the cutlery, dishware and pots were impeccable. The rotation of the house was intriguing and so unique. The view at the back of the house is beautiful. Clean white benchs on the back lawn are dedicated to each condo unit. The deck in front of each unit has plenty of space, with a bbq and white benches for relaxing. The beach is beautiful with easy access. Steve, the owner is conscientious, easily reachable and acts quickly on any concerns, or requests that he can accomodate. North Rustico is a beautiful location to be based from when exploring PEI and Around the Sea is the best place to be!!

My partner and I first stayed here in July 2020, and it completely blew our minds. First off - the location. You're a five minute walk from North Rustico Beach. The water is warm, safe, and the views of the cliffs are breathtaking. Then, you're a ten minute walk from PEI's best restaurant - Blue Mussel Cafe. You're also a ten minute drive away from Cavendish if you're interested in all that other touristy-stuff. The condo itself is modern, clean, spacious (I could write a whole other post about how amazing the shower is), and Steve is just wonderful. He provides you with beach towels, beach chairs, wonderful suggestions, and just makes your stay easy and breezy. Thank you for hosting us again this year, Steve! We can't wait to come back next summer.
