An ideal retreat from the usual demands of everyday life, our cozy vacation home is only 25 minutes from St. John's and within easy reach of its many tourist attractions. Pouch Cove, stemming from an old fishing village, takes pride in the warmth and hospitality of its residents. You don't have to travel far to be entertained by tales of yore from older locals.
The vacation house is rented as an entire house, allowing guests to enjoy complete privacy and personal space. Tastefully decorated and perfectly situated with an ocean view, all 900 square feet of this beautiful "home away from home" is a perfect match for 2 couples or a small family.
It has been fully renovated 2 years ago and meets all of the standards of modern construction while maintaining its old world charm.
Appealing qualities of the house are its spacious patio overlooking and its beautifully manicured lawn. Throughout the borders of the lawn and along the patio there is an assortment of beautiful flowering shrubs. The patio is 24 feet wide at the back, continues along the side of the house by one step, and, about mid-way down the side patio, has an extension 32 feet onto the side lawn with the most amazing ocean view. Throughout the patio, there are various patio furnishings as well as a 4 burner BBQ. These are stored during winter months
The interior of the house is tastefully decorated and extremely clean, a perfect arrangement for 2 couples or a small family. It is extremely well stocked with all of the usual amenities and many items that are not routinely stocked.
Stepping into the community, Pouch Cove offers 2 rugged, coastal, hiking trails (Biscan and Stiles Cove) from which the most picturesque views of the ocean and shoreline are possible. In season, it is likely that you can see a whale, an iceberg, sea birds, and so many other nature attractions.
For family entertainment, Pouch Cove offers Marine Park-Pouch Cove Yogi Bear Jellystone Park, a sandy beach fresh water park. The park advertises a 200 foot water slide (may be under repair at this time), rental of paddle boats, 18 hole mini-golf, golf cars, hiking, and so much more. There are also activities daily (see their webpage for more details about activities).
The town hall has a small heritage center / museum
