With today’s low interest rates and volatile stock markets, there has never been a better time to consider investing in a vacation home, and there is no better place in Canada than PEI.

Carnoustie Cottage has recently been listed for sale, a rare offering that isone of the finest cottages on the north shore of Prince Edward Island. Custom-built by a master craftsman, the cottage has been designed and furnished for people who expect and appreciate quality.

The cottage has a solid history of rental income, which can provide substantial income to offset costs.  The cottage rents for $2900-3900 weekly, May through October.  It is licensed with PEI Quality Tourism Services, and has an excellent property manager in place, providing worry free ownership.  Several bookings are already in place for summer 2014. The property is being offered fully furnished, including bikes and kayaks.

Carnoustie Cottage is located in the upscale cottage community of Cap Desir, on the western edge of Rustico Bay overlooking the Gulf of St Lawrence, Robinson Island and the sand dunes of Brackley Beach, PEI National Park.  The view from every window is spectacular. The natural beach and estuary is habitat to an abundance of wildlife, including herons, egrets, osprey, eagles and fox. If you get up early enough you will be rewarded with an incredible sunrise and a glimpse of the bald eagles which perch on the bank for early morning fishing.

When people come to PEI for the first time, the comment we hear over and over is “ I never knew a place like this existed in Canada.  The windswept sand dunes and white beaches of PEI’s many National Parks, the deep red soil, and endless green hills and valleys, make this one of the most picturesque places on earth.

In fact, Prince Edward Island has been named the best Island getaway in North America, and fifth best in the world by the readers of Travel and Leisure Magazine.  The Island is also Canada’s # 1 Golf destination yielding some of Canada’s finest golf courses, including 10 of the Top 100 courses in Canada – http://www.golfpei.ca/.

The spectacular white sand beaches hugging PEI’s north shore are without a doubt among the most beautiful in the world,  gems within Canada’s National Parks portfolio.. The tower sands dunes, fragilely protected by marram grass, are home to many species, including the endangered Piping Plover.

For years PEI has been one of Canada’s top summer family playgrounds, and now is also one of Canada’s most desirable places to retire.  Cottages remain very affordable, often half the cost of comparable properties in other provinces like Ontario. Carnoustie Cottage is only 20 minutes from the Charlottetown airport, with regular daily flights from most major cities. In fact, many summer cottagers commute weekly from cities like Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax and Boston.
