Why Eileen Clark chose Flatrock
We live nearby and love the property.
What makes this House unique
The property is set by itself on a hill within a small fishing village , but very close to the St. John's metropolitan area. The wraparound deck is a wonderful place to sit, watch the sun on the ocean and have morning coffee, or to have an evening beverage and barbecue while watching for Icebergs, whales, and the coming and going of fishing boats. Walk from here to the point of land called The Beamer and look in wonder at the vista around you, truly magical. Red Head Cove and Stiles Cove are also easily reached from Dawnview. This property appeals to all ages, but it is especially perfect for families because of the outdoor space for exploring on foot. Just ten minutes walk away there is a small river with waterfalls with swimming holes which flows through to a gorgeous river valley to the ocean. The whole area is so pretty that you will want to take lots of pictures!

Beautiful, cozy escape
We had an amazing stay at the Dawnview home in Flatrock. Eileen and Glenn were so warm and welcoming, providing us with great advice and fresh veggies and moose for our stew. They were also a joy to talk to!
The property is beautiful and had everything we needed for a cozy fall getaway. Spectacular views of the ocean, convenient access to trails, and just 20 minutes to St. John's. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
We hope to come back again soon!
Thank you so much! It was wonderful having you both stay. We enjoyed all our interactions very much and really hope that we will meet again.

Great experience, would go back for sure
The home and property are as listed, with a beautiful view from every window and a warm, gracious layout. This is truly a relaxing place to spend a few days or longer. The drive to St Johns is only 20 minutes. There are lots of hiking trails right within 5 minutes of the back door. You can watch the fishermen at the Flatrock wharf from the front window or the wraparound porch. Eileen and Glenn are wonderful hosts. We had a great 4 night stay and would definitely go back...a lovely spot to relax!
Thank you, Lisa. You both were wonderful guests! Thank you for all the nice conversations and for leaving the house in such good order. We would love to have you come back.

Flatrock is Fabulous
Only 20 minutes north of St. John’s, this property will cause you to lose track of time. A rural small village setting, this house is perched above the bay with beautiful scenery. The home is a 10 of 10, and so are the owners. Take advantage of the garden at your doorstep filled with vegetables that look almost artificial. Some of the best sections of the East Coast Trail are near your doorstep. Thank you for one of the best vacations ever, and thanks for sharing your piece of Newfoundland with us.
Cod luv ya, Matt, Amy, Andrew and Tayler.
Thank you, Matt, Amy, Andrew and Tayler, for that lovely review! Glenn and I are delighted to hear that it was one of your best vacations! You were great guests and we would love to see you again.

Great property and hosts
Thank you Eileen and Glenn for a wonderful stay!
The home is very spacious, clean and wonderfully situated atop a hill with perfect views of the ocean.
Eileen and Glenn are friendly, attentive hosts and shared tips for our stay and offered us fresh produce from their garden.
Look forward to returning in the future!
Thank you very much for your great review. And thanks for being wonderful guests. We hope you will come back.
Perfect Flatrock House
The house was in a great location with a fantastic view! This really pretty home had everything we could ask for and then some. The location was especially meaningful to us because we could sit on the deck and see where our grandfather grew up on the shore of Flatrock Cove. There was lots of reference material located in the house and traveling to areas of interest was easy. Looking forward to another visit.
Thank you very much for being great guests.! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you next time.
Eileen and Glenn
Beautiful in so many ways!
We had such an idyllic stay at Eileen and Glenn’s perfect house. The communication from start to finish was great. Eileen and Glen live a two minute walk from the house, so they can pop in if you need them. They were there to greet us and say good-bye and answered our many questions about the beautiful berries of the region and hikes we could take. The views of the water from the huge porch and the gorgeous master suite are breathtaking. You are just across the street from the bay if you want to get “up close and personal”, but you can hear the waves and the gulls sitting on the porch as well. The house is spotless, the bed super comfy and there are an abundance of thick towels for your bath or shower. I felt completely at home, and we enjoyed cooking in the bright and well equipped kitchen.
There are cozy lap blankets for porch sitting on a cool night. I loved the bountiful garden and free access to strawberries, pea pods, kale, lettuce and zucchini. It was so nice to eat fresh fruit and veggies at the end of our trip.
Eileen and Glenn felt like good friends- never too busy to chat. Glenn is working hard on renovating the huge garage for an added bedroom and bath, which will be great for larger groups. When I showed interest in local berries I had never tried, Glenn brought me his homemade black currant jelly and Eileen brought freshly baked and delicious partridgeberry muffins. We spent the two days hiking on the beautiful cliffs, and were so happy there that we canceled our plans in St John’s, so we could spend more time at the house.
Thank you so much, Eileen and Glenn for your warm hospitality!
Thank you very much for that lovely review! We enjoyed your visit as much as you did! It was a pleasure to chat with you and to see your enjoyment of our community. We hope to see you again for a longer stay. In the meantime, we hope you have a great year.
