Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I grew up in Gander with summer house in Traytown, and spent every summer of my childhood in Bonavista Bay. I moved from Newfoundland after university but have made many many trips back over the years. When this house became available I knew I had found my Newfoundland home, and I have spent many happy times there. I live in Massachusetts and expect to make many more trips to the Birdhouse. I decided to make it available to renters who can enjoy it when I am not there. If you have any problems or need help while you there this will be provided by a local friend.

Why the Owner Chose Sandy Cove:
I bought this cottage sight-unseen when a friend called me to say it was for sale! I did not know the house but I knew the view and I bought it for that reason! I've done tasteful renovations since then, always with a view of keeping its original wonderful cottage feel, at the same time modernizing the amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
View, view, view! All the benefits of a small Newfoundland community with the added benefit of total privacy.
