About Barry and Donna King

We have traveled extensively ourselves and we know how important it is to find a place that feels safe and provides an opportunity to truly experience a new place.

Barry and Donna King purchased this house in 2013

Why Barry and Donna King chose Newfoundland and Labrador

We were awed by this property the moment we walked in. It's a salt box type home in one of the prettiest places in Newfoundland. The work the previous owners did was amazing. Everything from the kitchen back splash made from rocks of the beach to the open upstairs living room with 6 windows, all with an ocean view! There's tons of space here and you will not want to leave!

What makes this house unique

Besides the house itself, the location of this property is what inspired us to buy. Pouch Cove is amazing! It's one of the prettiest places in Newfoundland. You can watch the ocean waves crashing against the cliffs, see ice bergs, watch whales, and take in the life of a small Newfoundland community. And that's without even going outside! You are a two minute walk from Newfoundland's infamous East Coast Trail. Literally hike until you drop. There's 200 km of trails to explore but you will find the trails in and around Pouch Cove as scenic as anywhere in the world! The bonus is that you are only 18 minutes to one of St. John's busiest shopping areas and 25 minutes from downtown where there are tons of unique shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, and even more walking trails.

Quaint community with an Amazing Coastline

  • 5 of 5

Loved hanging out in Pouch Cove, the Humpback Whales paid a visit to the cove, which was very special! Many portions of the East Coast trail are within walking distance or a short drive away. The house is comfortable and has everything you need. Great vacation spot.

We enjoyed our stay. The cottage was tastefully decorated, close to the East Coast Trail and close enough to see an iceberg. Any minor issues we had during our stay were quickly addressed.

Beautiful Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 13 nights on Pouch Cove and enjoyed every moment. The picture windows on 2nd floor offered a beautiful restricted view of the ocean. The front porch was a wonderful place to gather and visit with our extended east coast family.

The house was delightful, clean and lots of room for a family to roam.

Lots of great walking to be done and a short drive to St John's and neighbouring coves.

We looked forward at the end of each day back in pouch cove on our front porch

And we did see the sun rise first every morning. Best vacation ever.

Barry stayed in touch making sure everything was fine.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your home, meet the neighbours and for me fall inlove with NLFD

We will be back

You won't be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

The house has been nicely remodeled and thoughtfully decorated. It was exactly as expected from the description. There were only two of us, so just one of the three bedrooms was used. The place would be very adequate for a family with a few kids. It is within about 20 minutes from downtown St. Johns and the airport, so is a very good base from which to see the area, without the noise and commotion of staying in town. A big plus for us was the access to the East Coast Trail, only a few hundred metres on up the road. Great trail, but watch your kids around the shear drops into the ocean. Had no real contact with the owners, but none necessary. I am quite confident they would have been responsive.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely property with us. We found it to be the best of both worlds, being in Pouch Cove and only 30 minutes or less from St. John's. It was a great "home base" for exploring the area and other parts of the province. The house itself felt like home and is both classy and comfortable. We would love to return! Thanks again.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this home for our vacation as it was comfortable and had plenty of room for us. It was well kept and it had everything we needed. The entrance to the East Coast Trail was close by and you are 20 minutes or so to the north side of St. John's where major stores can be found. Pouch Cove is a nice, quiet town with friendly people. The owners passed along all the information we needed and were easy to communicate with.
