About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our modern, well maintained, all year round vacation home sits overlooking the rugged Atlantic Ocean shoreline. Nestled on a ½ acre of land, you are able to sit on your patio and do absolutely nothing. Relax, breathe clean, fresh air and soak up the beauty and peace of your surroundings.

Boasting 30’ ceilings, this home caters to 16 windows facing the easterly sunrise. In addition, the living area displays a large independent loft, separate common room and dining area all in an open concept surrounding.

With a privately fenced back yard, the heat from an open fire and the smell of the gentle sea breeze off the North Atlantic Ocean, anyone would feel as though they had captured their own piece of paradise.

If looking out your front window doesn’t spot you a whale then perhaps a short 45 minute drive to Bay Bulls will allow you to take in the scenery as you navigate yourself to a whale watching tour. A little more up close and personal may direct you to an ocean kayaking tour.

From this house, 10 minutes one way or 15 the other, whether you're a beginner or a pro, you'll find a golf course that's just right for you!

Finally in a land that lives by the sea, taste the freshest food the ocean provides. This morning's catch prepared for tonight's dinner - it's that fresh, and that's what makes the difference.

Welcome home!

Why Linsey chose Newfoundland and Labrador

Just outside the city of St. John's, this property allows you a unique coastal surrounding and the tranquility of the ocean. Within a 10-12 minute drive you are downtown St. John's and only 5 minutes to the airport and a major shopping area. The peace you feel when you walk in and view the ocean from your 20 foot ceiling windows will have you feeling relaxed within minutes.

What makes this house unique

Torbay House is a home away from home. It has every amenity you could possible need. With three bedrooms downstairs and a private loft, bedroom and ensuite upstairs the choice is yours!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guest Book - Waking up every morning to the amazing and breathtaking veiw out the front window was one of the highlights of my stay. Thanks, Linsey for everything. P.S. Your house is beautiful!

Wonderful Christmas in Torbay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at our house. We are a family of five with three university students and the place was very spacious and comfortable for our family for the two weeks we were there. We walked in the door and couldn't believe our eyes…the place was fully decorated for Christmas and even a real Christmas tree put up in the living room. What a nice touch. It is a great house for entertaining which we did a lot. The house was very well equipped with anything that you would want. The view of Torbay from the upstairs loft was a delight to wake up to every morning. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Thanks so much….we will be back again!

Best Overall

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening your home and allowing us to have such a wonderful experience. We are Newfoundlanders who now live in Alberta but regularly return to the rock for family visits. We've always loved Torbay but this house is so beautifully situated and appointed - we loved it! Just an amazing stay. We have used VRBO in various cities in North America and your house was the best overall. Thank you so much, we hope to be back again.

Our Daughter's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your spectacular home. We could not have asked for anywhere better to stay while celebrating our daughter's wedding. Everything we could have needed and more was at our disposal. Erin's photographer was able to capture the most amazing photos with the natural light that poured in. Torbay House provided the opportunity for our family to celebrate this special time all together and for that we are most grateful. As crazy busy as we were time always slowed down when we made it back to Torbay House.

I have stayed at Torbay House twice, now for the month of September. It has exceeded my expectations both times. I wouldn't consider a trip to Newfoundland without a stay here. In fact I consider my stay here as one of the highlights of my trip. It is exceptionally clean with all of the comforts of home but with a spectacular view. The owners are always available and helpful. It is wheelchair friendly with a massive washroom on the main floor making it as comfortable as possible for those in wheelchairs. And on top of all this, it's in the heart of an often overlooked, spectacular part of the world.
