Efficiency Home available in Fermeuse

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Total relaxation in quiet ocean front setting. Lots of parking. 1600 sq ft home

Our efficiency home was built in 1869 by Mr. Patrick Walsh, orginally from Port Kerwin. Patrick passed away in 1932 and James, his son, became owner. It continued to be passed down in the Walsh family, and was purchased by Patricks Great, Great, Great grandsons and restoration began in the spring of 2010.

We restored the house as close as possible to its original layout, but also added modern comforts and some openess, to take advantage of the wonderful view of Fermeuse harbour.

Three bedrooms can sleep six, and a Futon downstairs can sleep two.

Located on the Fermeuse Harbour, sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean. Not far from entrance to East Coast Trail. Only need to bring food, as it is ready to live in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

3 couples, mostly seniors, in fact one gentleman was 93, stayed at this premise in early August 2012. We had a wonderful time. The property was everything that was advertised and more. The keepers of the property were close by and were very helpful in making our stay enjoyable. Every year we stay at a different location and this was one of our most memorable stays. The location is quiet, the amenities excellent and the deck makes a lovely retreat on a warm, fine evening. If the moon is out it is a bonus. We would certainly recommend this property.

Great place, but lacks a bit of character

  • 4 of 5

The place was perfectly fine. Very clean, comfortable beds and linens, well stocked. Very new. The only reason I did not make it a five star was because it lacked some character. Although it is an old building, it has been 100% renovated in and out, including changes to the floor plan. To many this would be a good thing, but we wanted a bit of character. The location is not perfect either ... it's on the water but across the river from a commercial dock and adjacent to a big facility of some sort.

The owners were very friendly and the house was very clean and well kept

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location to go to St John's for the day or go to tourist destinations to the south. Just don't drive too early or late as there were moose on the road

Amazing Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home in a very private setting was the perfect place to get away for peace and quiet and the privacy was an added bonus! The owner was such a sweet lady and so accommodating. I would recommend this home if you are looking for a home base to explore the Southern Shore. Thank-you so much for the enjoyable stay.

Nice saltbox home on the harbour at Fermeuse.

  • 3 of 5

Great house - location is lovely. House is clean and kept nicely.

Do note that it really sleeps 6. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs- 2 with water views. Last bed is a double futon in laundry/utility room.

Also, you will be charged $15 per person per night after 2 people. This significantly increases nightly amount for groups of more than 2.

No internet even though username/password posted in kitchen. Bring your own wood for bonfire.
