We stayed here over the weekend for my birthday. What a great place! Rooms are large and comfortable. Full kitchen with full size fridge, stove, oven and microwave. Bathroom has two sinks and a double size shower. The rooms were quiet, modern and very comfortable. Steve was friendly, a pleasure to deal with and have a chat. He greeted us shortly after our arrival with a welcome basket (which was amazing) and checked what time would be good for us to get a tour of the "inner workings" of the house.

The house is located close to the beach, so we were able to go for a walk along the beach, up to the warf and through part of the town along the boardwalk. While we were in North Rustico during off season, many things were closed for the season. The Co-Op store is still open to get some groceries, there is also a gas station, liquor store and Robins to get some coffee in the morning (or just use the coffee maker in the room).

The tour of the basement, where everything that makes the house rotate is located, was very interesting and informative. Defenitely worth the time.

We had a great time here and will definitely return.

We enjoyed our time at the rotating house. It was easy to find and very clean and modern. The bathroom was great and loved the uniqeness of the house rotating. Steve was very friendly and provided us with a lovely welcome basket. Beach was nearby and easy to get to. The recent blood moon happened while we were there and was amazing place to be able to see that.

Look no further, this is truly a wonderful property which met or surpassed our expectations on every count.
We wanted something special in order to celebrate our 30 wedding anniversary and we
most certainly found it at The Rotating House. Much bigger than we had anticipated
from the on-line photos, the accommodation is of a high standard and specification.
The bathroom in particular is lovely (great shower), bed extremely comfortable and
kitchen well laid out. I am a real fuss pot when it comes to cleanliness, but this place
is beautifully clean.

Our daughter flew out for a few days and stayed in the 2nd bed which pulls out and
she slept extremely well.

This place is perfectly situated if you are an Anne of Green Gables fan and even if
you're not, it's a short drive from Cavendish, 2 minutes walk from the beach and a
beautiful area to holiday in. Steve, the owner is a great guy and was really helpful
with suggestions of what to do. The house tour was really interesting.

I'm usually one of those lazy people who never get around to writing reviews but this
place was truly something else and I had to make an exception. Our holiday was one
of the best I've ever had, magical and I can't wait to return :). I recommend The Rotating House reservedly.

“Fabulous place to sit back, relax, unwind.”
Reviewed September 11, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We booked a 1 week stay at the rotating house Around the Sea and it was wonderful.

Where to start?

The pictures of the property are real. No surprises.
Modern and luxurious accommodations. When we walked in we were blown away by the cleanliness, ultra-comfort and overall functionality of the space.
Our host and his family have thought of everything: kitchen is fully equipped, luxury bathroom, ultra-comfortable bed. Huge private deck in front of our unit that includes BBQ and two benches that convert into picnic tables. Each unit has 3 large patio doors and a big double window that maximize the views.

You know how the little things count for so much and make your experience go from good to great to excellent? Here are a few examples….

Prior to arrival – welcome email with special instructions and information regarding our arrival and upcoming stay.
Welcome basket – no need go looking for a grocery store upon arrival; packed full of yummy local foods and snacks.
Reference binder – full of info on things to do, places to go, activities that might be of interest. Local listings of where to go if we needed something specific. Personal numbers so that we could call or text our host if we needed anything at any time.
Discrete and attentive host. Extra attentive to our comfort, making sure we lack for nothing. He always seemed to know who was out and about and who was relaxing in / around their unit. When we were “home” and the other guests were out, he would rotate the house so that we had the ocean view to ourselves.

Then there is the location of the house. North Rustico is centrally located on PEI on Green Gables Shore. Cavendish Beach and all its kid-friendly activities are 10 minutes away. It’s easy to get to the other areas like the North Cape, Points East and the Red Sands if exploring is more your thing. There are a lot of beaches in the area; North Rustico beach being just a 5 minute walk away as is the bike path that runs to Cavendish Beach.

Finally, I think it’s important to mention that although there are 4 condo units on the property, you don’t need to worry about your neighbors or your hosts who live upstairs. The place is sound proof.

So, bottom line… F A B U L O U S.

“A wonderful location, a immaculate and fascinating house!”

What a great property - all we expected and more! The views of the ocean are spectacular, the property immaculate, the location excellent, the owners welcoming and gracious. We loved every minute! We traveled across Canada to tour the Maritime provinces and Newfoundland and specifically chose this house as a 'one of a kind' stay. The rotating house, in this location, was perfect and the house itself fascinating. North Rustico is a great community, the harbour beautiful-both a very short stroll away, and a perfect red beach just steps away as well. A stone's throw from everything Cavandish, it is perfectly "PEI"! Found this house on Ownerdirect.com site and would highly recommend this property!

We had a wonderful time in PEI, especially because of our excellent holiday rental at new Rustico. The beach is only a few minutes by foot away and there are plenty restaurants and sea activities in the small and calm village of new rustico. The landlord himself lives in the rotating house and is very friendly and gives good insider tips to encounter and discover on PEI. The Service was great!
