Both my parents are from Newfoundland. Growing up we waited anxiously for our bi-yearly car trips from Ontario to visit family back home. Being one of eight sisters was a challange, but we always managed. We would cram into our Ford Meteor and make that three day drive, singing sunday school songs and trying desperately to syncronize our bladders, so as not to make too many stops!, My love for the island continues to grow and I'm finally able to tell you that I've achieved my goal to purchase my own 'piece of the rock'. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Betty McMahon purchased this house in 2011

Only 20 minutes to the airport and 30 minutes to St.John's, this location is ideal. The East Coast Trail runs right behind the house and the ocean views are just incredible. Everything I've ever dreamed of is here at Oceanside Suites!

Whale watching, icebergs and the many varieties of sea birds are all just outside your window! I would be hard to find views any better than here!

A quiet out-port town founded in 1611, there is so much history in this community. Still small enough to get that true Newfoundland experience but only minutes to the city life of St. John's.

PICTURESQUE FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Oceanside for a week while I was in St. John's for a conference. Our group consisted of myself, my husband, our 2 small children (5 and 2) as well as my parents and niece (age 10). The house was very clean on our arrival and very well kept. We all fit comfortably. The kids enjoyed the large backyard as well as the playground down the street. The 2 back decks overlooking the ocean did not disappoint and we were able to see whale, icebergs and even a pod of dolphins from our chairs! The East Coast Trail that passes directly behind the house provides excellent hiking for miles with magnificent scenery the whole way. I was able to easily make it into the city for meetings each day within 30 mins. Overall a great vacation and highly recommended place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mandy for the great review. I'm glad you and your family had such a wonderful time at Oceanside. If you were able to get any good photos of the whales, dolphins or icebergs that you'd like to share, I'd love to see them and even post them on my website if it's okay with you. Come back anytime!!

A PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was wonderful. The view is just amazing!! As soon as you open the front door you can see the ocean from the living room windows.We were able to see whales from the deck. We had our coffee everyday on the deck, enjoyed just a perfect sunrise, watching the ocean, a great view of Pouch Cove.I must say I have never seen so may rainbows. The hiking trail is right behind the house. The house has a very warm and cozy feel to it. I think it would be wonderful in any season. The house looks just as it does the the photos. Betty, was great to work with and very kind. The location was perfect for us, easy to get to St. John's and to travel the Irish Loop. It is just the place to relax and reconnect with family and or friends. I hope to return with my family. Thank you for the use of you beautiful home Betty.

NEWFOUNDLAND VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our Family had a excellent stay in Pouch Cove which is about 20 min drive from St. John's. The view was fantastic and the property is adjacent to the East Coast Trail for hiking. The property has a large fenced in back yard which is secure for small children, there is a large deck with barbecue for family gatherings. The area is quiet and peaceful and a short drive to all major conveniences. The property is well kept and clean and I would highly recommend.

Totally impressed on all accounts - accommodations, scenery, owner knowledge of NFLD and helpfulness. The trails were great for all types of walking and sight seeing. The arranged fishing excursion was a wonderful success -- cod enjoyed by all the same day -- and fishcakes followed later.
1 week was hardly enough to see all the amazing St John's area.
A vacation always to be remembered !!!!!!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic family vacation in Pouch Cove. The house was very clean and comfortable and provided spectacular sea views. Every morning we would sit and have our coffee on the deck overlooking the ocean. Pouch Cove was close enough to St John's for day trip excursions - whale watching, Cape Spear, The Rooms, and Signal Hill. In the evening we would return to the house to watch the sun set. We also went on many hikes and walks in Pouch Cove. We have taken away many fond memories and many pictures to remember our time on The Rock. Thank you Betty for your hospitality and your beautiful home. We can't wait to come back! Deb B & family
