Witless Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Avista House is a stunning, newly built holiday home in one of the best coves in the Avalon with panoramic ocean views over five islands and the ocean beyond. Perfectly situated at the top of Tors Cove, it is on Newfoundland’s southern shore in the peninsula voted the best coastal destination in the world by National Geographic. Thoughtfully designed and tastefully furnished, it has every comfort in mind including free Wifi and has the advantage of being only 45 minutes from St John’s International Airport.

The house offers a very high standard of accommodation with three bedrooms for up to five people and is ideal for a family holiday. It is directly on The Irish Loop and The East Coast Trail and just a few minutes from the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve with boat trips out to the largest puffin colony in North America.

Avista House is all about the astonishing view and the spacious living/dining room reflects that in its wall of full-length windows facing east over the cove with Fox Island and Great and Ship Island Bird Sanctuaries beyond. The room offers more than 1,000 square feet of space with stylish sofa and chairs - perfect for relaxing and watching the ever-changing spectacle in the bay. There is plenty of room to spread out round the handsome table in the dining area with its splendid ocean views. For cool evenings, there is an efficient fireplace insert in the living area as well as electric heating throughout the house.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped with dishwasher and every possible appliance for the discerning chef including a combined microwave and convection oven as well as a full electric range.

There is a separate laundry room with washer and dryer and a two-piece bathroom on the ground floor.

The study/TV room (9ft X 14ft) offers wireless internet connection, Cable TV and DVD as well as a range of books and guides. There is also a landline in the house.

Upstairs you will find the spacious master bedroom (12ft X 18ft), which has a queen size bed and the four-piece bathroom with a bathtub as well as separate shower stall.

The second bedroom (9ft x 15ft) has twin beds that can be put together on request to make a king size bed. The third bedroom (9ft X 14ft) has a single bed. There is a two piece bathroom downstairs. All the bedrooms have lots of light, interesting pitched roofs, bedside tables and reading lamps. There is a wardrobe and chest of drawers in each bedroom.

High quality bed linen and towels are provided.

Throughout the house you will find outstanding art and crafts sourced in Newfoundland and capturing the unique heritage and culture of the island.

You will find Powers convenience store on Highway 10 at the top of Tors Cove for all your basics. Ten minutes drive will bring you to a well-stocked supermarket, NLC (liquor store) and gas station at Bay Bulls. All the major supermarkets along with excellent local food shops are 45 minutes away in St John’s.

Tors Cove is a small settlement with just 325 people (when everyone is at home) and offers a unique opportunity to experience Newfoundland life as a welcome visitor rather than a tourist.

my wife and I stayed here for one week and we had a fantastic time. The house is very modern and is well equipped and very clean. I would recommend this property to anyone that wishes to experience the true Newfoundland experience.

Been there, loved it!

"Perhaps it was the morning vista, two islets framed by beautiful Tors cove, the sturdy coastal houses haphazardly perched wherever one might fit, or the rhythmic sound of the waves but we were immediately charmed, calmed and thrilled to be at Avista House. This feeling persisted throughout our visit and we are left pondering our next sojourn. The new home's clean lines, comfort and openness are ensured by the seascape facing picture windows. All amenities are provided. Tors cove is well situated with St. John's less than an hour away and the entire south coast of Avalon at one's fingertips. Newfoundland's lack of airs, its warm people, distinct culture and dialect, and rugged landscape are unique in North America. We felt very much at home and consider Avista House our Newfoundland address. Thank you! "
