  • Bird's eye view from the nest

    "Shorelark by the Sea, in the quaint community of Petty Harbour is a wonderful alternative to staying in St. John's. The fishing harbour is the perfect stepping stone to visiting the south shore or the big city. Karen and David have done an impressive job of creating a beautiful home away from home, and have thought of everything. The views from the deck are exceptional and it allowed us to get a feel for life in a small fishing community. It also has one of the best fish restaurants in the area, which one must visit. We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. We will be back! Annie and Rick"

  • All the charm of St. John's

    "After having lived in St. John's for four years, I am now a regular visitor for work and vacation. Previously, we have also stayed in both hotels and short term apartment-style rentals in the downtown area. So, we know the city fairly well, and have a good sense of the types of accommodations options that are available. On our recent trip, I was looking for a larger apartment/house for my young family of 5. We found Hare's Ears and stayed for most of the month of November. And we loved it! Hare's Ears is a well appointed, and recently renovated home in St. John's historic Battery. It is clean with ample room for 2 adults, 3 children and a grandparent. The main part of the house is well setup for hosting, with a well-equipped and open concept kitchen, dining area, and living room. The two bedrooms are comfortable, and the bathroom is modern. There is also a fully equipped studio apartment/granny suite on the ground level. The house has many windows that look directly towards the harbour and city, providing stunning views of St. John's ever-changing weather. The home is located conveniently close to hiking trails, with one trail head only steps from the front door, and Signal Hill towering overhead. The home is a bit further away from downtown than many hotels, but is similar distance compared to other short-terms apartment rentals. Downtown is still walkable in about 10-20 minutes, and there are lovely dining options near the base of Signal Hill including International Flavour (Pakistani), Gracie Joes (Bistro/cafe), and Mallard Cottage (one of the best new restaurants in Canada!). Despite this, a car is still a big help. Our only complaints were that driving into this part of the Battery was difficult in winter weather, and that the keyless entry (via a keypad) did not work. Fortunately, the owners, Ken and Jane were accessible, and provided us with a key. They were also very helpful in assisting us with a few quirky requests. We highly recommend staying at Hare's Ears in both the high or low seasons. It will give you as great flavour of the city, and you will quickly and easily feel at home."

  • Excellent accommodation

    "The house is excellent, very clean and very well equipped. Great location, very comfortable for a family or 2 couples. The owners were very attentive also. If you want great views of the ocean, ships and a fully functioning house, this is it."

  • Fans of Nfld

    "This was the first time we have rented a house or cottage via the internet and we were a little nervous. Our fears were not founded because Anchor Rock was just as described on VRBO and better. It was very well supplied and we were surprised and appreciative of the care package that Randy brought us our first night. Our ages ranged from 2 to 67 years and the house suited all of our needs. The house was a good base point to do touring. We booked a lighthouse picnic at Ferryland and even though it turned foggy and rained later,it was a highlight of our trip. You need to book these lunches well in advance as it books up quickly.its an easy drive to St. John's with all of the sights to see there. We drove the Irish Loop to,see the scenery. We made wonderful memories at Anchor Rock and would highly recommend renting the house to anyone."
