NEW LUXURY HOME NEAR LA MANCHE WITH SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS

Brigus Junction House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Perched just above the tiny outport fishing village of Brigus South, Anchor Rock Lookout is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy life. Sit on the wrap-around deck or the upstairs balcony and watch the tide go in and out in Brigus Cove, the birds flying near Brigus Head, or perhaps spot a whale or iceberg floating by out in the ocean. Just a few steps away are blueberries for the picking (in season.)

Newly built and opened in June 2010, Anchor Rock Lookout is furnished with all the modern conveniences of life, but also features a touch of yesteryear with rich hardwood floors and antiques throughout. The 3 main bedroom suites each feature a queen bed and an attached bathroom. The master bath has a clawfoot tub,a large shower,and ocean views, while the 2 upstairs bathrooms feature huge showers and one has a waterfall view. Fluffy sheepskin rugs from New Zealand and flat screen TVs with DVD players adorn each bedroom suite. Also upstairs are 2 smaller rooms with a twin bed in each, suitable for children or single adults. In between the upstairs bedroom suites you will find a library with a balcony overlooking the ocean and a sitting room with a sunset view, so that you can get almost continuous sun during the day. Two bedrooms look out over a nearby waterfall.

You will love the open plan feeling downstairs, with large picture windows everywhere, a Great Room with a large flat screen satellite HD television, DVD player, stereo system with I-Pod dock, and a selection of DVDs and CDS for your use. The Great Room is open to the kitchen and dining room and provides for easy entertaining. The kitchen is has a pantry which is fully stocked with general cooking provisions as well as fixings for your first breakfast. A clothes washer and dryer are located in the mudroom, and laundry soap and other necessities are provided.

Anchor Rock Lookout is only 45 minutes drive south of the capital, St. John's, on the Irish Loop of Newfoundland. The house is just a short walk to the East Coast Trail and you can hike to La Manche Provincial Park to the north or Admiral's Cove and Cape Broyle to the south. Cape Broyle also features world class sea kayaking. The historic town of Ferryland is only a short drive away, where you will find the Avalon Colony archaeological dig, the world famous Lighthouse Picnics, and a dinner theatre.

Come visit our enchanting corner of the world. You will be glad you did.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We have enjoyed a fantastic respite from the chaos of Hong Kong! For us, and after many visits to Canada, have felt that Newfoundland is very special indeed and its friendliness is personified by Darlene and Randy who have made us feel very welcome. Their willingness to help and their proximity contributed greatly to our time here. The house is especially nice and the waterfall is a master stroke.

We have visited Brigus South and Cape Broyle for years and have many friends here. This is truly one of the most beautiful spots in the world, and the kayaking can't be beat!

Where else in the world can you see icebergs, whales, waterfalls, rainbows, ocean, boats, birds, the sunrise and blueberries all from the comfort of home?

Never wanted to leave!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a truly beautiful property with everything you would need for a relaxing stay. The house itself was spacious and nicely decorated, the kitchen included many of the "staples" you would need (sugar, wide spice selection, etc.) and the ingredients for your first breakfast are even provided! The views are spectacular, both from the dining room and the upstairs balcony (we could have sat up there all day!) We saw whales every day while we ate our meals!!! There is a lot to do within an hour's drive - festivals, whale-watching boat tours, museums, hiking trails - St. John's is less than an hour drive away, too - we were never bored! This property might be more challenging for families with very young children because there are cliffs near the house with no fence. This was our first visit to Newfoundland and we absolutely loved it. We would highly recommend this property and hope to be able to return in the future!

An amazing luxury retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Anchor Rock Lookout for a week, and we had an absolutely amazing time! Loved the privacy, stunning view, and tranquil settings. Every morning I would have my first cup of coffee sitting out on the porch, and enjoying the stunning view and at times catch sight of whales in the bay. The house is impeccable, and on arrival it was such a relief to find a kitchen already equipped with the necessary items such as coffee, tea, spices etc... The property manager Darlene was very helpful in providing suggestions on local attractions, restaurants, and groceries. The house is perfectly located, to the north it took less than an hour to get to St. John's, and minutes away from Whale and Puffin boat and Sea Kayaking adventure tours. During our week there, we visited the light house at Ferry land, went on a wonderful whale & puffin boat tour, visited Cape spear, and went on a tiring but fabulous sea kayaking trip. It was wonderful to come back to a beautiful home everyday, and relax after a full day of activities. We would recommend the property to anyone who is looking to visit St. John's. We have stayed at many timeshares, luxury hotels, and vacation rental places over the years, and this property rank at the top for its location and amenities.

The property was more then what we expected. There were 3 couples who shared this home and it was more then big enough. The owners and the people who looked after this property were very helpful with directions and activities in the area. I would definitely recommend this property.

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5
A very well appointed, well equipped, clean and comfortable home-away-from-home for the six of us - and the view from the back deck as well as the interior of the home is exactly as shown in the listing! This was a first time to the Island for all of us and the spectacular scenery, excellent accommodation, and friendly and helpful neighbours and caretakers (Darlene and Randy) made it a trip to remember. The proximity of the property to the East Coast Trail was also a big plus, as we hiked about 20 kilometres in total (north and south) and were rewarded with the sight of humpback whales from the headlands, as well as seals in the coves. We were close enough for day trips to St. John's and Petty Harbour - Cape Spear, while Ferryland and Bay Bulls (for Gatheralls Whale and Puffin tours) were both an easy afternoon drive. This property was suggested by friends who stayed there last year and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with a car who's looking for a home base from which to tour the Avalon. We would certainly recommend the Sunday evening catered dinner at Cape Spear Lighthouse and also the Riverview Restaurant in Cape Broyle.

My husband and two teen daughters spent a week in this breathtaking location. We woke in the morning to beautiful sunrises, then watched fishing boats come and go as we sipped tea on the porch. We went for a picnic at Ferryland Lighthouse and another at Turtle Island, hiked the Eastcoast Trail, kayaked into ocean caves with otters and seals bobbing nearby, went out on a boat tour to see puffins but we also read and watched for whales and completed a puzzle and made great meals. The history and the characters here are a big part of the trip. Very easy drive from St. John's and easy spot to make day trips from. Great place to make memories.

Fantastic stay at Anchor Rock!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 4 day stay at Anchor Rock in Brigus South. We drove down from St Johns to Brigus South during the arrival of Hurricane Igor. We survived the Hurricane and we received a nice welcome from Darlene and Randy, the next door neighbors that manage the property. Provisions were provided for the first breakfast and there was a good supply of condiments and spices available. The kitchen is very well equiped with cookware and dishes.


Anchor Rock is beautifully finished inside with all of the modern conveniences needed to enjoy a wonderful vacation in Newfoundland. The house is very clean and had plenty of sheets and towels. It is by far one of the nicest places we have rented from VRBO. There was nothing better than to wake up in the morning and watch a beautiful sunrise from the east and look out over Brigus South Harbor and Brigus Head. We took an incredible photo of one of the sunrises.

Darlene, the property manager, showed us around one day and gave us some pointers on what to see and do in the area. We enjoyed taking a Whale and Puffin cruise with O'Briens out of Bay Bulls. We didn't see any whales or puffins as we were too late in the year but we enjoyed the narration, scenery, and maritime songs that were sung by the narrator. We also enjoyed a wonderful gourmet picnic at the Lighthouse in Ferryland. The setting couldn't be any more special and it is something not to miss.

If you want to enjoy the beauty, culture, and scenery of Newfoundland that the Irish Loop on the Avalon Peninsula has to offer, then a stay at Anchor Rock is highly recommended. You won't find two friendlier people than Randy and Darlene. We have a two year old son, and the house worked out great for us. We will be sure to return again to stay at Anchor Rock and see more of the Avalon Peninsula and visit with our new friends Randy and Darlene.
