              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About: I am an active individual with a passion for fitness and the outdoors. I also enjoy finding that perfect make-over property, where I can utilize my creativity and 'Mom-taught' design skills. I have also aquired a passion for Real Estate in the last 5 years so I am able to provide you with an open concept, comfortably furnished vacation accomodation.

              Why St. John's:
              Location, location!! When I saw this property, I fell in love with the area and it's close proximity to Quidi Vidi Fishing Village, Signal Hill and Quidi Vidi Lake. When I purchased this property it was pretty dated and in much need of TLC. With a little perseverance and a vision, every inch of space was used to create a big space in a little house. I am proud of this little house and would like to share it with you. We are located in Quidi Vidi which is East End of St. John's, only 2.5 kms away from the City Center Prescott and Duckworth Street, or the start of Harbour Drive on the waterfront.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Completely renovated with modern furnishings including: Heated tiled flooring in the ktchen and bathrooms. Ocean and Iceberg views from the kitchen, dining area and back deck. Located on the backside of the Historic Signal Hill/Cabot Tower Site, and only a 1.5km walk to Signal Hill's Geo Centre and Tourism Centre. Surrounded by numerous trails for the beginner to extremist hiker. The trails are a great spot for that serene picnic planned on the oceanview cliffs of the rugged coastline from here to Cabot Tower or head in the opposite direction for trails taking you to Middle and Outer Cove. Only 8 minutes to George Street and downtown St. John's which has all the activity the city has to offer, yet located in a quiet cul d sac.
