TORBAY HOUSE

St. Johns House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our modern, well maintained, all year round vacation home sits overlooking the rugged Atlantic Ocean shoreline. Nestled on a ½ acre of land, you are able to sit on your patio and do absolutely nothing. Relax, breathe clean, fresh air and soak up the beauty and peace of your surroundings.

Boasting 30’ ceilings, this home caters to 16 windows facing the easterly sunrise. In addition, the living area displays a large independent loft, separate common room and dining area all in an open concept surrounding.

With a privately fenced back yard, the heat from an open fire and the smell of the gentle sea breeze off the North Atlantic Ocean, anyone would feel as though they had captured their own piece of paradise.

If looking out your front window doesn’t spot you a whale then perhaps a short 45 minute drive to Bay Bulls will allow you to take in the scenery as you navigate yourself to a whale watching tour. A little more up close and personal may direct you to an ocean kayaking tour.

From this house, 10 minutes one way or 15 the other, whether you're a beginner or a pro, you'll find a golf course that's just right for you!

Finally in a land that lives by the sea, taste the freshest food the ocean provides. This morning's catch prepared for tonight's dinner - it's that fresh, and that's what makes the difference.

Welcome home!

The house was everything as described . It was amazing waking up in the morning to a beautiful view of the water . The property was kept immaculate . Coming from the west coast to the east coast and staying in a comfortable and clean house made it all worth while. We were there for soccer nationals and the owner had no hesitations to fill up the propane tank and deliver a big pot to us as we had the boys over for a home cooked meal. They also left us directions to the soccer field as we did not know where we were going.. The rooms were all decorated nicely and there was all the necessities in the washroom and kitchen. The location was great 15 minutes to downtown st.Johns which we found was beautiful . The weather was beautiful. The nightlife was a lot of fun ! We would definitely visit St.Johns again and stay at torbay house with no hesitation. By the way we won nationals B.C. Coquitlam Metro Ford Sparta ! Overall it was a very enjoyable holiday and thanks to the owners for being a big part of that.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The home is as it appears online, attractive on the outside and well kept with quality furnishings on the inside. The owners not only supply the house with nice linens and high quality towels, but also a great many basics (condiments, coffee/tea supplies, even some fresh snacks) so you do not have to purchase them yourself. The owners are available for questions and were very friendly.

But the best part of the house is the view. It was a real treat to wake up every morning to a gorgeous view of the bay and attractive cliffside. Made our vacation that much more memorable.

We also found the location to work well. It is a solid 20 min drive to downtown St. John's, but the views and access to some beautiful spots for hiking on the East Coast Trail made it absolutely worth it.

The only thing I'd point out for other potential renters is the staircase from the ground floor to the master suite upstairs. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, but for older renters or anyone less than physically confident, you may find the narrow, spiral nature of the staircase difficult to navigate. But this can likely be easily accommodated by the way you assign bedrooms, and is not a problem overall - just something renters might want to be aware of before they arrive.

Again - overall we would absolutely stay here again and recommend that others do so as well.

What a great place with a great view and only few minutes from downtown St-John's.
Even with the poor weather we had during our stay we are able to appreciate the view and the house was perfect to do family activities.
With everything provided you can enjoy your stay in Newfoundland.
Thanks to the owners

Visit Home for Mom

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
I have had the opportunity to travel extensively over the past 25 years and this is the best house I have rented yet. When my brother and I decided to bring our mother home to the island for a visit, we immediately started looking for a property that would comfortably accommodate 6 adults, one of which was handicapped. Further, since mom grew up in St. John's, we need she had to be close to the Sea. We knew our expectations were very high but within the first hour of looking we found this beautiful home in Torbay. The description of the property didn't do it service and upon arrival we were delighted to find many detailed touches that provided surprises all around. The house is well-kept and was spotless upon arrival. The owners are very kind and stopped by to say hello AND upon learning my mother would be in a wheelchair, they installed a ramp up to the front door. Their thoughtfulness was unexpected and greatly appreciated. We were able to entertain family members with ease, due to the size of the property and we were showered with food and family visits daily for the three days we were there. It was a much needed reunion for my mother as well as a reminder to me not to get too far from family. The island itself is magical and the people are of the friendliest in the world. The beauty engulfs and embraces, and it inspired us to play. We will be back. Thank you so much for the hospitality...ever in California you know where to come first.

Couldn't ask for a better or beautiful home to go on vacation. The view, the owners, the town and most of all the province of Newfoundland absolutely awesome vacation. Would recommend anyone to choose this home if you are visiting Newfoundland.
