Battery House boasts magnificent accommodations and is located downtown St. John's at The Battery, a tiny authentic fishing village that sits on the base of Signal Hill National Historic Park. This four star Canada Select luxury accommodation offers a fully equipped home away from home.

Overlooking North America's oldest port city - St. John's, the Battery House is nestled in the million year old hills that are considered among the 'Earths Geological Showcase'. Step outside and you've joined the North Head Walking Trail that meanders 1.7 Kilometres (1.1 miles) around the entrance to St. John's Harbour ending at Cabot Tower on Signal Hill where Marconi received the first TransAtlantic wireless signal.

The spectacular view includes Fort Amherst built to defend the entrance to the city in the 1770's; Cape Spear - Newfoundland's oldest surviving lighthouse located on the most easterly point of North America; and the vast Atlantic Ocean where you'll enjoy whales, seabirds and icebergs in season.

You can experience the relaxed atmosphere of an 'Outport' or stroll 10 minutes to downtown to visit one of the many quaint cafes and shops nearby. For those who prefer to visit major attractions, walk to the Cabot Tower, Signal Hill National Historic Park, the Geo Centre, Quidi Vidi Village, Government House, the Rooms Provincial Art Gallery, Historic Churches and Museums or hike the North Head Walking Trail.

Battery house was in the most unique and beautiful location overlooking the harbor of St John's. It was just the right size for 3 couples. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed the balcony and use of BBQ. The hostess who met us there was very friendly and informative. There also was a great book with details. All correspondence over internet was replied to quickly and only 20% was needed as down payment. This property actually had 2 flat parking spots for vehicles which was a bonus in this area. It was a close walk to downtown and best restaurant Portobello's . We enjoyed Canada Day fireworks at Signal Hill and seeing a whale jump out of water at Cape Spear. Would love to return. Only thing we missed was air conditioning as we were blessed with hot weather.
Owner's Response: Than you so much for your kind words. We like to hear that we were able to enhance your vacation to our great province and city. Mary Lou

We were greeted with the usual Newfoundland hospitality - with open arms. This was a perfect property for our family of 3 and 2 friends. A great location too - very close to downtown. The view of the harbour is magnificent, and we enjoyed sitting on the porch every evening with a bottle of wine. It had everything we needed in terms of amenities, including a BBQ. The house was very clean and well-maintained. Great trails nearby for walking or running. I will definitely stay here again when we visit St. John's. I would recommend this property to any of my friends or family.
Owner's Response: Hello
Thank you so much. We do hope to see you again.

Battery house provided an open concept area where our visiting family of 6 was able to visit with our 2 family members living in St John's.
The whole house was spotless with a very well stocked kitchen. There were lots of thick bath towels and beautiful bed linens.
We also enjoyed bbqing on the deck while viewing the ships coming in and out of the harbour.
Our son and wife live downtown so we could easily walk to their apartment as well as lots of restaurants, George St pubs and shops.
We hope to rent Battery House again in 2014 when our first grandchild is born in St Johns and the family wants to be together.
Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing us and we look forward to welcoming you again.

This property was everything we had hoped for. It has an amazing view of St. John's harbour day and night. The house is spacious, with plenty of room for my family of four. It was clean and very comfortable, and is well maintained. It was perfectly located for the hike around Signal Hill and close to Quidi Vidi for a run in the am. I have no hesitation recommending this property, it is a real gem. I will definitately stay there again.
