“Beautiful, comfy, clean and cool...”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We are now back in NYC after spending a week at the "Around The Sea Rotating House" and are missing the tranquil beauty of North Rustico. The location of the house is amazing with great views and an easy walk to a lovely beach. The condo is clean and comfy...great kitchen and bathroom, comfy bed and plenty of windows. The rotating is house is very cool and fun. Steve is a super nice guy with a sweet family.

This was our first time to Prince Edward Island and we're counting the days to our next visit. I travelled with my wife and 2 year old son and we couldn't ask for a better place to stay! The rooms were spotless and with a very appealing modern décor. The size of the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room gave us and our son ample room to feel comfortable. We could have easily had an another couple in our suite without problem. Especially with the extra "pull down" bed in the suite. The location is within walking distance to a picturesque fishing wharf where the Blue Mussel Café is located. An excellent place to eat. The rotating feature of the house is great too! You can be rest assured that everyday you'll be able to enjoy a beautiful ocean view! The house rotates a few times daily and is so subtle that if you are not paying attention, you wont notice. Owners Steve and Stephanie are warm, welcoming. They are also very helpful in suggesting great things to do and places to visit on the island. Nice perks like free wifi and a national parks parking pass are also great features. A short drive to Charlottetown, beautiful beaches other key points on the island makes it a great spot to explore the island from. We will definitely stay there again when we return to PEI!

This is the one of if not the best suite accommodations I have stayed in.
Steve and family's hospitality was superb - thanks for organizing the lobster tour - a true bucket list event. The nearby Blue Mussel Cafe is excellent.
The novel rotating feature is incredible and Steve was always far in giving everyone exposure to the awesome beach and Gulf of Saint Lawrence views. The basement tour was very informative.
The suite is very modern, clean, spacious, and upscale. The barbeque is a great feature!
I will stay here again if the opportunity presents.

Our stay at the rotating house was great! Everything is brand new and spotless and the location is great! The suites have everything that you need and the views are fantastic. Steve was an outstanding host and had lots of great suggestions of what to see and do during our stay. I would love to visit PEI and the rotating house again and would definitely recommend it to anyone heading to Canada's beautiful east coast.

Spacious and highly comfortable condo-style rooms, with kitchen and large, modern bathroom. High-end appliances and all amenities, like Wi-Fi, are included. Nothing can beat the view - due to the rotation, every room has a wonderful view of the ocean, beach and serene surroundings. Friendly owners. Personal touches, like the welcome food basket, little Aveda soaps and shampoos, and Steve, the owner, personally visiting to welcome us and suggest areas of interest. A special treat included organization of a lobster fishing trip with Steve and Joey's Fishing, as well as a personal tour of the rotating mechanism in the basement of the house.
The house is located a little further from the main beach and tourist area, but still within very comfortable driving distance. The village of North Rustico is charming!

My husband and I, retired, really enjoyed this very nice place with all the great light through several patio doors, and a guaranteed view, thanks to owner Steve rotating the house so all get a turn at seeing the lovely red cliffs and blue water of Cavendish National Park in P.E. I., Canada.
The kitchen was great, bedroom nice, and bathroom shower wonderful with lots of space and a rain shower head too. Steve is very thoughtful, even lent us a bathroom stool after I fell and hurt myself earlier in the trip, and making sure that a tour of how this architectural marvel works via clever engineering is a available.. Very interesting and unique. Pass to the park came in handy too. Highlight of our week on the island.

Every unit gets a great ocean view due to the building's rotating nature. Immaculately clean and modern condo units with free (and fast) wifi + all the conveniences of staying in a house. The BBQ grill & full kitchen tells me it's a house, but the tiny soaps, crisp linens, and decor makes it feel like a hotel.

So many bonuses that come along with staying here:
- a complimentary welcome basket filled with local goodies (especially welcome if you're arriving late and don't have time to pick up food),
- a pass to all the provincial parks on PEI for scenic coastal drives.
- really cool & super friendly host who's there to answer all your questions (via text, or however you prefer) and make recommendations on local restaurants & attractions.
- the view! The beach is a short 5-10 minute walk away. From your suite you can see those famous red cliffs if you're aimed at them.
- the sound of the sea + chirpy birds. It was so serene I probably could've recorded the sounds to make a sleeping aid app.

Also note; these suites are decked out with really thoughtful touches everywhere you look. Dimmer switches on all the lights, USB port outlets, flashlights for night time excursions, a picnic basket for day trips... pretty much everything you could think of, and all the things you couldn't.

Loved my stay here, and look forward to spinning around again.
