From the moment you pull into the driveway at 608 Main Road, Pouch Cove, Newfoundland you KNOW that you are home.

A beautiful 2 story blue house with white trim and a shiny red door welcomes you into the cozy, comfortable and stunning home. Upon entering, you immediately notice, the warm tones, and rich wood throughout the living and dining rooms. Vaulted ceiling and staircase up to the loft bedroom with it’s own ensuite, with an overlook balcony.

The living room, complete with gas fireplace, big screen TV, comfortable furnishings are perfect for you to enjoy an outstanding view of the ocean front. A full balcony allows you to sit outside, to watch the whales, experience the crashing of the waves, and the ever-present rainbows.

A beautiful dining room, again with a full view of the ocean is the perfect place to entertain or have a quiet personal dining experience.

A fully equipped, cheerful kitchen has a pass through to assist in easy entertaining. Also located on the first floor, a welcoming, beautifully appointed bedroom and a full bathroom.

Minutes from St. John's yet far enough away to relax and enjoy the comfort of your home away from home.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Both my parents are from Newfoundland. Growing up we waited anxiously for our bi-yearly car trips from Ontario to visit family back home. Being one of eight sisters was a challange, but we always managed. We would cram into our Ford Meteor and make that three day drive, singing sunday school songs and trying desperately to syncronize our bladders, so as not to make too many stops!, My love for the island continues to grow and I'm finally able to tell you that I've achieved my goal to purchase my own 'piece of the rock'. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Why the Owner Chose St. John's:
Only 20 minutes to the airport and 30 minutes to St.John's, this location is ideal. The East Coast Trail runs right behind the house and the ocean views are just incredible. Everything I've ever dreamed of is here at Oceanside Suites!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Whale watching, icebergs and the many varieties of sea birds are all just outside your window! I would be hard to find views any better than here! A quiet out-port town founded in 1611, there is so much history in this community. Still small enough to get that true Newfoundland experience but only minutes to the city life of St. John's.
