Guestbook comments from the owner

Bill, we stayed at your wonderful property in July of last year and intended to write a review at the end of our trip (October 2016). At that time we discovered we had missed the window for a review on the site. If you can use the following in any way (quoting from it, etc.) please do so.

We started our NL tour in St John's, with a 10 night stay in this lovely, spacious home. We had rented a car and found we were within an easy drive to the places we wanted to go (swimming pool, park, summer camp at the Geo Centre, other tourist spots, etc.). We found the supermarket a short walk away and also accessed the Grand Concourse walking trail easily.

The 3 bedrooms were spacious, comfortable and welcoming. The 3 adults and 1 child in our party settled in straight away and found we had plenty of room to be together while also having enough space to be apart if we wished. It was wonderful to have 2 options for dining, with the large round table in the dining room for family meals and the smaller kitchen table for informal meals on individual schedules.

The kitchen contained everything we needed and the fridge was a good size for a large group settling in for a long stay. It was wonderfully handy to have full laundry facilities and we made good use of the clothesline over the back yard.

We loved having the front door and boot area separate from the main living areas. The coded lock helped us to feel safe and secure, without having to worry about which adult had the key when we were headed in different directions for the day.

The family lounge (livingroom) was very comfortable and made us feel quite cozy and at home. The seating choices in the room gave us lots of options and were all inviting. It had taken us about 36 hours to travel from our own home and it was wonderful to walk in and feel at home immediately. I can give this rental home no higher praise than to say, "I wish it were mine".

Thank you very much for kicking off our 3 month tour of NL off in style!

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this large, spacious house. It is very comfortable, clean and includes all the amenities you need for a very enjoyable stay. The central location is perfect for getting around St. John's and the owner is very considerate and quick to respond to any communication. I would definitely rent this property again.

Great Accommodation in St. John's

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends stayed here from June 12 - 22. We were visiting Nfld. for the first time with intensions of hiking some of the East Coast Trail. It was a great home base. It was so roomy and bright. After long days out and about it was always good to come home to. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely Home, Excellent Location

The house was well laid out and spacious. The location was excellent for shopping, day trips and access to the airport. The internet worked well and the house came with all the basic essential - soap, detergent, Kleenex, etc.. The owner was quick to respond to all communications. All in all an enjoyable stay.
