Overview

About the property

21 Castella's Lane, 2 Bed, 2 Bath Cottage, Private Deck on N Atlantic Cliffs

RedHouseNL, 21 Castella's Lane, is a lovely, cozy oceanfront cottage perched on the cliffs of Pouch Cove Newfoundland, overlooking the N Atlantic. Upstairs it offers 2 bedrooms (queen beds) with incredible ocean views, a small sitting area for coffee or reading with a view and a full bathroom with tub/shower. Downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen, living room with wood burning stove, a 'study' with books and a full sized futon which can fold out for a 5th guest, and a second bathroom off the study with a stall shower. The living room is bright, open and spacious, offering incredible ocean views. Off the side of the living room is a dining room with big rustic table great for meals, games and dare I say work?!

The House also has a large deck off the back, with 4 Adirondack chairs to enjoy the scenery and perhaps catch a glimpse of whales and dolphins cruising by. A side deck off the dining room is equipped with 2 lounge chairs for more of the same!

Steps from East Coast Trail. Short drive to local beaches. 25 minute drive to downtown St John's.

About Chris Rutkowski

Cheers from Newfoundland! I fell in love with this province when I moved here for work years ago. It is truly a magical place! I take pride in my property and am responsive to any of my renters needs. The Red House is fully furnished and has all the amenities of home to make your stay comfortable, cozy and revitalizing!

Why Chris Rutkowski chose Pouch Cove

This property is special and you will understand the minute you walk inside. The view of the ocean is mesmerizing! From the vastness of the water to the waves crashing on the cliffs, you will not be able to look away! The sunrises are spectacular along with the occasional whale sightings, many different birds and of course icebergs. Even at night, when it is totally dark, you can hear and feel the ocean. The fresh ocean air is wonderful!

What makes this cottage unique

The house is extremely cozy and comfortable inside. I like the winter season the best with the wood stove going and watching it snow outside. It's a great escape! During the summer, the back deck is the place to be. Four adirondack chairs facing the ocean keep you and your favourite beverage occupied for hours!

Great spot right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

A clean and well equipped home with views to die for. Very quiet and peaceful spot. Fantastic hiking trails only a short walk or short drive away. And you are only a 25 minute drive to St. John's.

Amazing views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house in a private location. Loved the porch with panoramic views. We saw whales every day. Icebergs went by.

Well equipped house, well equipped kitchen, beds with luxury bedding made for excellent sleeping.

Owner extremely quick and responsive to any issues.

We loved our stay and only wish it had been longer.

The property has an amazing view!!

  • 5 of 5

The red house is very quaint and cozy...it provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. The views which you can see from most windows is spectacular. We saw whales, beautiful sunrises and was fun to watch the local fisherman catching cod. This place makes you feel like you are at home and is a great answer for anyone that wants that feeling. Would not hesitate to stay at this property again!! Kathy and Gord

This was a home away from home - but better!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing like lying in bed and seeing the stars touch the horizon then waking up with the sun rising over the sea. Our stay was worry free because Chris thought of everything when setting up this perfeect holiday home.

The location was great for getting into St John's or anywhere else on the Peninsula for the day and coming home for the evening. We stayed warm despite the cold wind whipping around us because there is no shortage of heating throughout and on a mild morning at the end of September we took our first breakfast on the porch and listened to the waves crashing below.

Every person we met was kind and lovely, I encourage anyone to stay here to have a taste of this beauty.
