About the Property

The Saltbox is a 1500 square foot, 2 story century home on the ocean. This home can sleep up to 4 maximum with 2 bedrooms.
Some of the highlights include:
One full bath, master bedroom facing the ocean with new extra plush king size bed, luxurious down-filled duvet, ultra soft linens, guest bedroom facing the harbour, with two twin, extra long beds.
Powder room, washer, dryer, wireless internet, cable TV, VCR, stereo, large private 300 square foot deck with great panoramic ocean views, with outdoor patio furniture, 2 Muskoka lounge chairs with foot stools, and BBQ. Bright, clean kitchen with breakfast nook, large beautiful antique dining room with seating for 6, and a large living room with windows offering a magnificent view of the ocean from all angles, and a wood-stove. We also offer a fun collection of movies, east coast music and books for you to enjoy.

In Bauline NFLD there are many fun things to do, beautiful and interesting things to see. We have listed some local things to do within walking distance from the Saltbox and some very useful suggestions for St. John’s and the surrounding area. You will see that the city of St. John’s is very rich in culture, history, arts and entertainment.
Iceberg & Whale Watching:
Right from your own private deck you can kick back on a lounge chair, sip on a glass of wine and watch as icebergs and whales pass by. They are in abundance during the months of July and early August especially.
Fresh Water Swimming Hole:
Located 2 km up the road with a sandy beach and picnic tables. Great for the whole family. The water is very clean and great to enjoy a day of swimming in.
For all of you fishing fanatics, make sure you bring your gear. Talk to the locals about the fantastic fishing opportunities, they are only too happy to help. You can fish for some tasty “brown trout” in the fishing hole just up the street and catch your evening meal. Or, cast a line off of the rocky point at the little harbor, just a stones throw away and catch some interesting ocean treats.
Take an invigorating walk to the summit of a 1000-foot high mountain right behind you. There are trails that will lead you to the top but please keep in mind that the path can be quite treacherous at times, it is a great cardio workout for you fitness enthusiasts and please be sure to bring lots of water and perhaps even a light snack to sit and enjoy the view. The hike takes approximately 3 hours up and down. Ask the villagers for directions.
Enjoy the local Fishing Community:
Bauline is a small, very active fishing village with many of the residents relying heavily on the daily catch to support their livelihood. Throughout the year, if you time it right, you can enjoy different ocean delicacies that are in season such as crab, lobster, squid, and if you are lucky, perhaps some other fresh “catch of the day”.
The local fishermen are a very friendly bunch, strike up a conversation and share in some interesting, entertaining stories.
Running, Walking and Fitness:
For any running-enthusiast, we challenge you to take the “Bauline Line” hill challenge! It is the road that you take to the Saltbox which doesn’t seem too steep when you are driving down but wait until you start walking / running up! It is a great challenge for anyone looking for that extra “shock” to the system. For those of you who would like to enjoy this walk at a more leisurely pace, please make sure to bring water and don’t push it too hard. You will see we also have a light bar bell weight set and fitness videos in the living room, please feel free to use them.
Bauline has a 1000 foot mountain that surrounds our tiny village and at the base of this mountain, there are beautiful fields full of assorted berries that are 100% edible. Hikers will quickly notice the wide variety of berries. Cranberries, Bake-apples, Blueberries and Partridge berries are abundant and have traditionally made up an important part of the Newfoundland diet.
Whale, Bird & Iceberg Watching Tours:
There are many boat tour operators in Newfoundland.
Year Purchased: 1999

Why the Owner Chose Bauline, NL, Canada:
Within the quaint little fishing village called Bauline, there sat an old home that required a lot of TLC with endless opportunities to renovate and bring it back to a beautiful home. That is exactly what we have done with the Saltbox.
