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.
We grew up in Fermeuse and acquired this home from our uncle and proceeded to renovate it completely and finished reno last year
Lucy Walsh purchased this house in 2010
This house has been in the Walsh family for over 140 years. Situated on the beautiful harbour of Fermeuse, only 75 km south of St. John's.
Completely furnished, with all bedding, towels, dishware, utensils, ptos/pans, . Just bring food!
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.

Five friends came down to ring in the new year. There were a bunch of very impressive fire work shows that went off around the bay and we had a view of the whole thing. The kitchen was well equipped and the house is close to the East Coast Trail. Very comfortable and spacious. Lucy even called us on our way down to check in with us! She is a lovely lady. We would stay here again!
Whether you want to sit around the fire or get comfy on the couch, this gorgeous old home with its well thought out updates is a crowd pleaser. I brought my wife and two other couples here for a birthday surprise kid free time. The pictures are a true to life representation of this home. We plan on returning here a couple more times in the coming year.
The house is in a beautiful location, and stocked up with basically everything you'll need. It's refurbished and very clean. Would definitely stay again!
This was a very nice vacation rental. Interior was very modern and convenient. Bedrooms and bathroom were very clean and spacious. Fermeuse wharf was with in walking distance and in typical NF hospitality one of the locals provided us with a free fresh catch of cod for dinner. Deck overlooked the water which provided entertainment watching the local boat activity. Fermeuse is only a short drive from Argentia which let us settle in and get prepared for the rest of our adventure around NF. Lucy the owner was very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone.
Maggie by the sea is a gem! The home was clean, comfortable, spacious, and in a great location. It had everything we needed for a family of 5 - laundry facilities, lots of sleeping space, a beautiful view of the harbour, an outdoor deck and fire pit, and a well equipped kitchen. We were able to see many wonderful sites within a close distance, and return to our vacation home to rest up for our next adventure. We loved visiting nearby Ferryland to view the whales, hike and enjoy a delicious picnic at the Lighthouse. Another highlight for us was St.Vincent's beach, where we were able to watch the whales feeding, as well as our visits to the many coves and harbours along the Irish Loop. Lucy and her husband were so very kind and welcoming. We would highly recommend this property!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your home. Very comfortable, clean & updated. So nice to be able to have the freedom of having a space just like home instead of using cramped hotel rooms. Very affordable and within 15 minute drive to most attractions for us. Loved the sea kayaking in Cape Broyle & Zodiak in Ferryland. Thank you for having this available to us.
