                            Our family (6 adults) spent 4 nights at this wonderful property and could not have picked a better spot to stay. A pleasant surprise waiting for us on our arrival was a welcome package. A nice touch that got our stay off to a great start. The house itself was truly our "home away from home" and is actually as shown in the pictures --- clean, modern and very well equipped. The location is excellent, with great views and close to everything in St. John's. Would recommend to anyone visiting the St. John's area. A special thanks to Daphne & Shelia for their assistance.

                            This is a terrific "home away from home" with all the "bells and whistles". Our party of six adults enjoyed the space, decor, cleanliness and comfort of this home. It was a great base to drive to all the tourist activities that St. John's and the Avalon Peninsula offer. The view of the Atlantic Ocean from the living areas and bedrooms was awesome! The house itself had all the modern appliances that were easy to operate plus the needed utensils, cookware and dishes to produce meals with special additions such as herbs and spices. Shopping for provisions was a ten minute drive to Costco plus a large supermarket with liquor store.. The owner has labelled all the light switches so there were no guessing games when turning on the lights--a good idea. The owners ' family were attentive to all our needs and made contact with us on our arrival which we found very welcoming This is one of the nicest properties that we have rented on VRBO.

                            We rented this house, based largely on reviews found on VRBO's website, trusting that the pictures and reviews were accurate. This house was amazing, and EXACTLY as pictured. The only 'discrepancy' is that the view out the windows appears to be 'just out there', while you are actually across a road and WAY up on a cliff overlooking the bay. NOT a negative, but a geographic surprise slightly :) The first couple of days we even saw whales in the bay below, even from inside the livingroom and on the deck we could hear them blowing! We rented this house in preparation for our daughter's wedding in St. John to a local lad. The house provided lots of room for our family of 6, plus enabled us to host two family pre-wedding parties and the wedding party preparations the morning of the wedding. The bride pictures before the wedding in the upstairs hall were absolutely beautiful. The large hall upstairs provided an amazing area for the ladies to prep, and where some quiet photos could be taken of the bride and her party. This house rental made our stay wonderful. It enabled us to host and prepare for our daughter's wedding, just as if we were at home. And everyone who visited us expressed an interest in moving in permanently! Thank you for allowing us to stay here. Jayne

                            Our family of 5 enjoyed a beautiful 10 days touring around the Avalon and we used this stellar home as our base. We would highly recommend this home as a vacation rental. The home was tidy, clean, and had all the needed touches to serve as a home away from home. The view was stunning, no matter the weather.

                            Thankyou for opening up your home to all of us to enjoy! The views are breathtaking, the beds are cozy and the wind is an interesting soundtrack. We're so happy to have spotted whales playing in the cove everyday. How lucky we are to have had the opportunity to come to NL and stay here. Thank you

                            What a wonderful place for our family to reunite and spend a week together! The view from the front porch alone is one to make you seriously consider moving out to the rock. Who needs whale watching tours when you can just view from your house or head up the road to Cape Spear to see humpbacks breeching. The trail from Middle Cove Beach will provide you with spectacular views of the area. Prescott St / Jelly bean row was a cute sight to see. Taking a dip in the ocean was a must, although the locals will stare at you like you are crazy! We'll all miss waking up to the spectacular view and coming home to this beachfront gem.

                            A wonderful 10 days in a beautiful spot, lovely home. 6 women all enjoying this wonderful province. We biked, we hiked, we spent one night in Trinity and felt we were coming home when we came back to St John's and this house. We saw it all and will be back.
