                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Located in the historic Battery fishing village at the base of Signal Hill and the edge of downtown. Enjoy the historic walk through the Battery and up and around Signal Hill where Marconi received the first trans Atlantic wireless signal.

                      George Street, with the most pubs per linear foot in North America, is a 20 minute walk or $7 cab ride away. There you will find traditional Irish and old time rock 'n roll pubs, various clubs, jazz and blues bars and be sure to try a unique Martini at the Martini bar.

                      Belbin's grocery is a five minute walk along Qidi Vidi road. There you will find traditional Newfoundland fare and imported European specialty groceries as well as fresh vegetables, meat and local baked goods. Belbin's also has take out, home delivered and frozen hot meals cooked in their own kitchen.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose St. John's:
                      We bought this home on our second trip to Newfoundland because of its great location and view. Now that we have moved to Newfoundland permanently it serves as a relaxing place to stay when we come into the city.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Away from traffic yet walking distance to downtown and an amazing view of all the comings and goings in the harbour. We love being able to walk down to Belbins to buy groceries or breakfast at Coffee Matters kitty corner to the Sheraton. Starting out from the front door on an early morning or evening run up Signal Hill is another favourite activity. If you prefer a less strenuous run or walk, Qidi Vidi lake or the trail up Rennie's Mill river is also easily accessible.
