A unique location
A comfortable and well-equipped house in a spectacular location. Fantastic views in every direction. Owners were thoughtful and responsive. A wonderful experience.
East coast house with a view to remember
My husband and I stayed at this location at the beginning of October for time away together. Although it was during off season, we had a fantastic time. It was the getaway we were looking for. In 3 days we experienced sunshine, rain, hail. Who can beat seeing a rainbow right of of signal hill?
The place was as described, clean, cozy and comfortable with access to anything within 10/15min.
Peter and Nivole were great hosts. We look forward to revisiting again in the future. We may even bring or kids next time!
Pinch me! Am I really staying here?!
I have never stayed anywhere that I've felt so comfortable and at home. Nicole and Peter, you have done an amazing job with these properties. The pictures on the ad can't even come close to being there. I have found my lil piece of heaven in St. John's!
All I can say is “BEAUTIFUL “
Would most definitely stay here again just a gorgeous spot to stay. It’s a convenient location to travel around and see the sights. Signal Hill and Cape Spear are a must.
Another great visit at Fort Amherst
Our second time staying at this unique and amazing cottage and we can’t wait to come back again! Wonderful family memories made on this trip, delicious feasts cooked in the well equipped kitchen, and sunburns from the terrific weather and a long day watching ships from that unbelievable deck!! Thanks Pete and Nicole; we loved every minute.
