About Daisy Pendergast

My name is Daisy. My parents are the lucky owners of this amazing heritage townhouse located in historic St. John's. I have been blessed with the opportunity to handle the rental of this property, and I am looking forward to sharing the charm of this home with potential vacation home renters.

I am a clerk in the Royal Canadian Navy, and I help my parents with the administration of their rental properties. I am married to a wonderful man, and we have two amazing children. We love to spend time during the summers exploring our wonderful city and surrounding areas. We especially love to visit Bannerman Park and take in the many events that happen there, such as the Folk Festival.

Daisy Pendergast purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Daisy Pendergast chose St. Johns

My parents purchased this property in 2009. They fell in love with the Heritage area and loved the character and atmosphere in this area of downtown St. John's. It is an affordable place for tourists to stay and enjoy while visiting our breathtaking city.

What makes this townhome unique

This home has many tourist attractions within walking distance, such as the Rooms, Bannerman Park, the Colonial Building, Lieutenant Governor's residence, Signal Hill, Johnson Geo Centre, Quidi Vidi Lake, and much more. The downtown area has many great restaurants, art galleries, and stores for shopping. The nightlife on George Street is first class and a must-go while in St. John's. Whether you wish to get 'Screeched In' at a local pub, listen to live bands play, or dance the night away at a night club, George Street has you covered. If you would like to travel across town to do some shopping at a Mall or see a blockbuster movie, all amenities are within a 5-10 minute drive from the townhouse. If you do not have a vehicle while on holiday, you would be pleased to know that our townhouse is on a reliable bus route. If buses are not your thing, there are many taxi companies more than happy to drive you from point A to B. For people who love to hike and enjoy nature, there is an amazing trail along Signal Hill to hike, see whales, and just take in the sights and smells of the Atlantic Ocean.

Lowry's Place is an ideal base for exploring St John's. It's so convenient, being in reasonable walking distance of everything you might want to see - we even walked to Signal Hill and Quidi Vidi (and the Avalon Mall though that was quite a long way!) Bannerman Park opposite the house is a bonus and there is even a corner shop within 100m (and a medical equipment store even closer should you need to hire crutches!)

There were 5 of us staying and it was so good to have a keypad lock on the house, meaning we could each come and go as we pleased. The house has good bedrooms and lovely soft bedding. We enjoyed hot weather which was a bonus, but the downside was that the 2 back bedrooms' windows wouldn't open so the warm nights were uncomfortable (and we couldn't find any fans). The house was well-equipped and it was lovely to have a small patio at the back. Things we would have liked were a nice milk jug, a large teapot, a large cafetière and a pepper mill!

Thanks for helping make our time in St John's unforgettable! It was brilliant!

The apartment was very clean , friendly environment with everything you need for a comfortable home away from home stay. located in a friendly neighborhood with loads of restaurants, bars, shops etc. just a short walk to downtown . Very friendly and helpful host (Daisy) accommodate us at short notice. Not a single fault or problem during our stay. Highly recommended.

The location is extremely convenient for visiting St. John's. Our hostess was very accommodating and informative. The house is very attractive, the beds were comfortable and the house had the amenities we needed. We enjoyed our stay very much, and would recommend this location. I have only one quibble, which is that a few more kitchen items would have been useful, such as a teapot, salad bowl, better large sharp knife and newer large frypan.

My seven sisters and i recently haad the pleasure of staying in this authentic Newfoundland home. It had all the amenitites we required and on a quiet street. It was within walking distance to the bustling downtown core and only a short bus ride to other attractions and the mall. We loved the fact that we got to expeience the NFLD life in this quaint home with its bright colors. The manager was very accomodating as there were 8 of us. A lot of hard work took place so we all had comfortable sleeping arrangements. I hope to have the opportunity to go back to St. John's and to stay in this great home!! Big bonus ...a cab from George St......very cheap :) I would for sure tell my friends about this home, there were no surprises when we arrived, everything that was listed and all the photos were very accurate. The home had a great secure feeling to it and we had a wonderful time. Can't wait to return!!

Beautiful four bedroom property, directly across the street from famous Bannerman Park.

Indulge in the numerous dining establishments in the downtown area. Unwind and enjoy the nightlife on George Street at the end of the day.
