A lovely spot...wish I could have stayed even longer to explore the area.

Very cosy house - floors a bit uneven and watch your head going in, but it suits the surroundings perfectly.

Authentic NL Experience

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip to Trinity and New Bonaventure and Aunt Hattie's house added to the value of our trip providing an authentic NL salt box experience. The house was clean and comfortable with a view of the bay and the bonus of icebergs and whales. We had guests from Australia who thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We wouldn't hesitate to bring guests in the future. Thank you!

Great location close to the sea

  • 4 of 5

We really loved New Bonaventure -what a special little place. The house itself is quite old and the furniture is very outdated but it is spacious and it was clean. We loved having breakfast outside and looking at the ocean.
