Guestbook comments from the owner

Thankyou for opening up your home to all of us to enjoy! The views are breathtaking, the beds are cozy and the wind is an interesting soundtrack. We're so happy to have spotted whales playing in the cove everyday. How lucky we are to have had the opportunity to come to NL and stay here.



Thank you

Fabulous Vacation Home for Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough good things about this house !!! Two families shared this home to attend a wedding in Mount Pearl. The location was unbelievable. The house is absolutely gorgeous. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need in a home away from home. Other family members came to visit us and were just amazed. We could literally sit on the deck and watch the whales rolling and icebergs float by. It was just fantastic. We had rental vehicles so the 10-15 minute drive to St. John's was no big deal. We would highly recommend this property. The property is very private. The photos are exactly as you will find the property. We had one issue that needed to be dealt with on a priority basis and the owner and his back-up team went above and beyond to have our issue resolved within a very short period of time. Very very helpful people. This property is spotless. We cannot say enough good things. If we are ever fortunate enough to go back to Newfoundland there is no doubt we would book this property again.

Very enjoyable stay --- could not have been better.

  • 5 of 5
Our family (6 adults) spent 4 nights at this wonderful property and could not have picked a better spot to stay. A pleasant surprise waiting for us on our arrival was a welcome package. A nice touch that got our stay off to a great start. The house itself was truly our "home away from home" and is actually as shown in the pictures --- clean, modern and very well equipped. The location is excellent, with great views and close to everything in St. John's. Would recommend to anyone visiting the St. John's area. A special thanks to Daphne & Shelia for their assistance.

the title aptly describes the property.

This is a terrific "home away from home" with all the "bells and whistles". Our party of six adults enjoyed the space, decor, cleanliness and comfort of this home. It was a great base to drive to all the tourist activities that St. John's and the Avalon Peninsula offer. The view of the Atlantic Ocean from the living areas and bedrooms was awesome! The house itself had all the modern appliances that were easy to operate plus the needed utensils, cookware and dishes to produce meals with special additions such as herbs and spices. Shopping for provisions was a ten minute drive to Costco plus a large supermarket with liquor store.. The owner has labelled all the light switches so there were no guessing games when turning on the lights--a good idea. The owners ' family were attentive to all our needs and made contact with us on our arrival which we found very welcoming This is one of the nicest properties that we have rented on VRBO.

Rented this house for our daughter's wedding

Rented this house for our daughter's wedding
  • 5 of 5
We rented this house, based largely on reviews found on VRBO's website, trusting that the pictures and reviews were accurate.

This house was amazing, and EXACTLY as pictured. The only 'discrepancy' is that the view out the windows appears to be 'just out there', while you are actually across a road and WAY up on a cliff overlooking the bay. NOT a negative, but a geographic surprise slightly :) The first couple of days we even saw whales in the bay below, even from inside the livingroom and on the deck we could hear them blowing!

We rented this house in preparation for our daughter's wedding in St. John to a local lad.

The house provided lots of room for our family of 6, plus enabled us to host two family pre-wedding parties and the wedding party preparations the morning of the wedding.

The bride pictures before the wedding in the upstairs hall were absolutely beautiful. The large hall upstairs provided an amazing area for the ladies to prep, and where some quiet photos could be taken of the bride and her party.

This house rental made our stay wonderful. It enabled us to host and prepare for our daughter's wedding, just as if we were at home. And everyone who visited us expressed an interest in moving in permanently!

Thank you for allowing us to stay here.
