Guestbook comments from the owner

Thankyou for opening up your home to all of us to enjoy! The views are breathtaking, the beds are cozy and the wind is an interesting soundtrack. We're so happy to have spotted whales playing in the cove everyday. How lucky we are to have had the opportunity to come to NL and stay here.



Thank you

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible week of memories from our stay in Middle Cove! The house is like new, very well equipped/quality, very comfortable and ideal for the group of us to spend time together. Even on the rainy days, we enjoyed the view and watching the waves as we sat by the fire in the living room which had plenty of room for our large group. Access to the East Coast Trail is a 5 minute walk down the hill. The landlord is incredibly responsive and accommodating. The Newfoundlanders we travelled with and met lived up to their reputation as the friendliest in Canada! We highly recommend this for 6 adults, and the hide-a-bed might be OK for kids - not adults.

INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5

The ONLY thing that could have made our stay better, would have been staying longer.

This gorgeous home is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of St John's, but is only 20 minutes into it's heart. We woke up each morning to whales playing out at the point and ended each day with a beautiful sunset.

We loved the meadows AND the cliffs ! Would I return? In a heartbeat! The photos posted are absolutely accurate.

Superb Accommodation with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended for its location overlooking the water and proximity to airport and St. John's. Spotless and well equipped. Owner was very responsive even over the Christmas holiday. One limitation is the fringe cell phone coverage. Met all of our expectations making for a wonderful family holiday.

Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This property had incredible views - there is a wraparound deck. It was exceptionally clean and the layout of the house was amazing. It was close to hiking and yet only a short drive into St. John's.
