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!

Just outside the city of St. John's, this property allows you a unique coastal surrounding and the tranquility of the ocean. Within a 10-12 minute drive you are downtown St. John's and only 5 minutes to the airport and a major shopping area. The peace you feel when you walk in and view the ocean from your 20 foot ceiling windows will have you feeling relaxed within minutes.

Torbay House is a home away from home. It has every amenity you could possible need. With three bedrooms downstairs and a private loft, bedroom and ensuite upstairs the choice is yours!

Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5
I want to thank you for allowing us to experience Nfld from your gorgeous house in Torbay.
If we had not stayed there we would not have had the opportunity to hike the coastline, sit and look out at the beautiful bay and Iceberg “Our” iceberg we called it, had room for half of our family visiting for a wedding, eat together at the large table and still have room for our other visiting family members to eat with us on the last day, and manage to feed everyone a bowl of pasta which we found in the cupboard between the 3:30 wedding ending and the 8:00 pm dancing.
The house was a perfect home away from home for us. We were there with our daughters, one who just arrived from Australia and needed some rest between all the wedding festivities. This was the place. And it was close enough to St. John’s to drive or cab back when we needed.
All the bedrooms were beautiful, all the beds comfortable, washrooms accommodated everyone and we would return in a heartbeat and recommend to anyone.
What an amazing view to behold morning, noon and night!!!
Thanks so much.

Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5
My wife, I and our young children (ages 7 and twins at 5) recently had the pleasure to stay at Linsey and Peter's residence. It was a perfect fit for our vacation needs. Linsey was immediately available by e-mail for any questions and we had the pleasure to personally meet Peter. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5
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.

Would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5
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.

Perfect place to stay in Avalon area in Newfoundland

  • 5 of 5
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
