Private Beach, Amazing Sunsets, Red Capes
About Marcy Berg
I live in Toronto but both my parents are from this area of Prince Edward Island. My mother was one of the Howards from Howard's Cove. As kids we summered every year in Cape Wolfe and not surprisingly we are related to almost the entire population in one way or another. My parents restored this house stick by stick and nurtured it for the next generation. It is now my turn to take care of it and hand it on to those who will come after me. Until retirement it is my desire to share and show off this amazing part of PEI.
Marcy Berg purchased this House in 1968
Why Marcy Berg chose O'Leary
The Reilly House has been part of my family story since the first settlers landed from Ireland in the 1800's. The place and all around it is steeped in history and folklore. My attachment to the place and people runs deep. This is my favorite place in the world. The place I come to be with relatives, break bread and rejuvenate.
What makes this House unique
The privacy of the beach is first thing I'm certain you will come to love. That and the serenity. The Atlantic breezes blow through the house and the sound of the waves from bed are so relaxing. Long walks await you both on and off the beach.

Everything is true!
Our stay at the Reilly House was pretty much perfect! The house and the grounds are lovely, and as first timers to PEI, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The rooms were spotless and the kitchen had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. The beach was spectacular – very private and fun to explore. Marcy’s suggestions of where to go and what do were spot-on, so besides enjoying the property and the beach, we had a great time exploring all around the North Cape. Our family felt welcome and completely relaxed the whole time. We had a few clarification questions for Marcy and Curtis while we were there and heard back super-quick.
It's a fairly remote spot, but that was what we were looking for, and only added to the whole experience of being on the island. We can’t recommend this spot highly enough.
Thank you, Marcy and Curtis!
Wonderful and Private
The Reilly House was a total joy to stay in. The owners have gone out of their way to include everything anyone could need to enjoy this property. The house is beautifully decorated and full of wonderful art and homey touches. Wonderful.
Charming cottage on the ocean
As soon as we all pulled in the driveway we fell in love with this perfect cottage and serene property. It is everything we thought it would be and more! The home was so inviting and decorated spot on for a beach house. The windows in the bedroom were open to feel this inviting breeze from the ocean. Everything you would ever need was thought of and included. The property was so stunning. A beautiful long walk to the ocean surrounded by wildflowers and the massive ocean with sand dunes up ahead. We loved walking along the private beach searching for sea glass and hearing the waves of the ocean. We also enjoyed playing croquet on the lawn! This was an absolute perfect experience for us, thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
Thank you Bendan. Please come back to PEI again. We are happy you made yourself at home and enjoyed the Reilly House. That's why we share it.
Stunning location, cozy cottage
We loved the Reilly House! A bit off the beaten path, approx 1 hour 15 minutes from the Confederation Bridge, you won't be disappointed with the breathtaking views of the ocean in your own backyard. The beds were comfy, the cottage had everything you would need, worked well for our family of 2 adults, 4 kids. We didn't swim as the ocean was a bit choppy and cold for our liking but the kids didn't tire from going down to look for shells and crabs several times per day. We also found an amazing seafood restaurant 15 mins away called The Catch located south on highway #14 towards West Cape.
A great time was had by all.
We had a really wonderful 5 day stay. Six adults comfortably and entirely enjoyed the wonderful Reilly House cottage, walking and lounging on the virtually private red sand beach, swimming in the gulf, playing croquet and bocce on the expansive property, cooking fresh lobster, sunning on the deck, and exploring the cape and environs. We watched the Perseids meteor shower, and had a rainbow greet us one morning. A great time was had by all!!
Glad you had a great stay! Stay in touch
Incredible hosts and place to stay
Can't say enough about our week at the house. It may not be for everyone, but if you want a more isolated location on PEI, with privacy then stay here. The hospitality and communication was incredible, fully stocked kitchen is always nice in a longer rental, there is plenty of space outside to run around and play, on top of a fairly private 3-4km stretch of beach (most people we saw was 4 in a day). House did get a little hot even with a breeze, and yes there were mosquitoes at various times, but we wouldn't hesitate to rent again. Make sure to stop in O'Leary for fresh fish whenever the fish truck parks (Tuesday and Friday for us). Also a great little restaurant and local beers at the Catch in West point.
Thanks so much! Come back soon.
