Sandcastles Beach House is a beautifully finished pine beach house with two independent units: Meadowside and Duneside. Each unit has two bedrooms, a full bath, washer & dryer and a fully-equipped kitchen, including dishwasher. Water, water everywhere and endless beaches too! Sandcastles Beach House is a mere three minute walk along the path to the finest beach on the island. With our beach's sandy, broad expanse and gentle slope it is perfect for family fun. You can walk for hours and never run out of beach. From your deck you can take in our spectacular dunes and you'll see the surf conditions so you'll know if it's a smooth swimming or a boogie board kind of day.

Each unit has two bedrooms, a full bath, washer & dryer and a fully-equipped kitchen, including dishwasher. Water, water everywhere and endless beaches too! Sandcastles Beach House is a mere three minute walk along the path to the finest beach on the island. With our beach's sandy, broad expanse and gentle slope it is perfect for family fun. You can walk for hours and never run out of beach. From your deck you can take in our spectacular dunes and you'll see the surf conditions so you'll know if it's a smooth swimming or a boogie board kind of day. In addition, we are in the enviable position of being the only rental having MacKay Pond border its lawn so you'll see eagles, herons, osprey and cormorants all day and end it all with blazing sunsets dancing off our waters. No neighbors separate you from your view of the dunes. Staying at Sandcastles is like having a series of natural works of art offered up to you all day long. Sandcastles easily fills the needs of everyone from individual couples to groups of up to 14 celebrating reunions of families or groups of friends. We can customize in this way because we have two units which are adjoining and yet fully private and self-contained. So you can rent just one side and soak up all the beauty our location offers. Or, if you are with a larger group you can rent both sides, sharing meals and good times when you choose and yet still have the freedom to enjoy the privacy of dining and relaxing in your own unit. If you wish to book Meadowside, please do so here. If you wish to book both Meadowside and Duneside, please book Meadowside here and Duneside on our other listing: 'Sandcastles Beach House on PEI's Best Beach' (also found under Darnley, PEI). We supply Wi-fi, all modern conveniences and we have a fully private outdoor shower. Sandcastles Beach House is minutes from 8 golf courses, deep-sea fishing, fine dining and galleries. You'll be pleasantly surprised with our prices. Our rates are in Canadian dollars and include taxes. We do not charge extra for additional guests (up to 7 per side). So....be sure to check the final cost of other sites when comparing. Our guests tell us that Sandcastles is 'enchanting' and our location is 'breathtaking'. We hope that you'll visit Sandcastles Beach House and create memories that will last a lifetime. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: PEIGOVERNMENTINSPECTED&LICENSED(2020)More

About the neighbourhood
Bicycle riding is a favorite activity as there are some great rides just out our door. In fact, if you have a trusty old mountain bike then cycling below the high tide mark can be a pleasure. The well known Confederation Trail and Homestead Trail are both nearby as well.We are also a bird watcher's paradise. MacKay Pond, which borders our front lawn, abounds with Great Blue Herons and seabirds of all types.You can sit on our upper or lower deck and marvel at our resident eagles as they soar over the pond.Golfing is phenomenal on Prince Edward Island; there are eight courses within 30 minutes of Sandcastles Beach House.At dusk, ever changing sunsets explode onto the pond just outside the patio doors. As the evening progresses you enter a stargazers' wonderland. Moonlight walks & bonfires un...
