  • Beautiful Newfoundland Home with the Magnificent View

    "We were pleasantly surprised to find this beautiful home with its magnificent view for our once in a lifetime "Ancestry Exploration" trip. We were six ladies ranging from ages 32-82 coming together to visit the land of our heritage. The house was comfortable,clean, well stocked and convenient to St Johns and the highway. We were able to cook, enjoy each other's company and sleep comfortably. The homeowners left a few very welcoming touches just to add to the special feel of this house. We made great memories and appreciated every moment of this magical experience."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Christmas in Torbay

    "Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at our house. We are a family of five with three university students and the place was very spacious and comfortable for our family for the two weeks we were there. We walked in the door and couldn't believe our eyes…the place was fully decorated for Christmas and even a real Christmas tree put up in the living room. What a nice touch. It is a great house for entertaining which we did a lot. The house was very well equipped with anything that you would want. The view of Torbay from the upstairs loft was a delight to wake up to every morning. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Thanks so much….we will be back again!"

  • 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."
