Perfect St. John's Rental

  • 5 of 5

A group of six came to St. John's for the Curling Brier, and rather than stay in a hotel, rented this beautiful home. We were not disappointed. The home itself is located within a fifteen minute walk to the downtown area, where one can find bars and restaurants aplenty. Our home owner/hostess maintained excellent communication with us both prior and during our arrival. The home was fully stocked with all the conveniences you could possibly need, including a case of beer in the fridge, and snow crab legs in the freezer which served as our lunch one day. We cannot say enough about Desiree and the people of Newfoundland. Hope to get back in the summer.

Comfy, Cosy and quite inviting.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Walk to downtown, parks, historic landmarks, etc. The house is modern, everything is supplied for your needs. Great idea having laundry facilities inhouse.

The backyard (garden) was a wonderful retreat at the end of each day's touring. Lots of trees provided privacy. Here again everything was provided for your enjoyment. Patio furniture, BBQ.

No problems were encountered during our delightful stay. My friends and I would definitely recommend this vacation rental.

Beautiful, accomodating and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect. This place was beautiful and had any amenity you could need. It was clean and felt like home. We particularly liked the private back yard. We sat out with a cold beverage and listened to music in the evenings. From the master bedroom window you can see Signal Hill. The furnishing and appliances are great and up to date. Desiree makes sure everything is perfect. I highly recommend staying here if you are visiting St Johns. Thank you so much Desiree for everything!

Rice House

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends stayed at Rice House for 3 nights. It was everything we saw on the website, no fake pics at all. Real comfortable and clean. 3 comfy bedrooms, one with an ensuite soaker tub. Central location, just a 10 minute walk to Water and George Streets. Frankly in the heart of the action if that is what you want.

Would stay there again!
