Perched on the edge of the Atlantic ocean, on Bradleys Cove Road in Western Bay, this charming one bedroom cottage is the ultimate getaway for a couple or a single person who are looking for that special place to unwind and enjoy nature at its best. An artists haven, you can set up your easel and paint the dramatic coastline without leaving your large private deck. Wake up in the morning to the sounds of loons and Kittiwakes and take your morning coffee to the private whale watching dock located at the edge of the property. Enjoy the unique chic nautical décor of the cottage with its bright colours and large windows with a panoramic view of the dramatic coastline. The modern kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances and all the utensils, and condiments you will need for cooking and baking. It has a modern bathroom with luxurious towels and linens, shower, sink and toilet. The bedroom features a queen size bed with high quality linens. We also have a small herb garden for your personal use. If your stay will be for a special occasion, and you would like fresh flowers or a special wine, or some other special request, please ask and we will try to accommodate you. Also if you have that special little furry friend that you would like to bring along, please ask. Please note that the scenery along this coast is some of the most beautiful you will find anywhere, but there are cliffs and a rough coastline so when you are enjoying the many opportunities for exploration, you need to use caution at all times.

About Catherine Whalen
The owner is a retired medical professional who has a family vacation home in the area and has been spending weekends and summers here for 15 years and found that when you are here your body and soul are in the same place and the peace and tranquility will rejuvenate your senses. When this little cottage became available she thought she would share this great experience with other people.
Why Catherine Whalen chose Western Bay
This little cottage allows visitors to enjoy all that is Newfoundland. The views are breathtaking and one visitor to the whale watching dock amusingly said that the whales were closer than at SeaWorld.
What makes this Cottage unique
Even when the weather is not ideal, and you are inside, the views of the ocean and its ever changing seas will keep you entertained.
Welcoming owner, marvellous cottage with excellent amenities and stunning views.
Beautiful cottage and stunning property
I was at Kittiwake for 4 days and loved every minute! The cottage is beautifully decorated and the windows look out onto the ocean - something I can ever tire of. Wonderful hiking behind the house and up the boardwalk to the light. Also, numerous hiking trails in the area, each special in its own way. I definitely recommend Kittiwake for anybody who loves peace and quiet and beauty. I cannot forget the gifts waiting me - wine, Cod, and dog treats! Thank you so much for a wonderful place and experience!
Hi Linda & Kimba.....thank-you so much for the lovely review. I am so happy that you chose our little cottage to spend part of your first vacation in Newfoundland. If you and Kimba ever find yourselves back on the Rock, you will always be welcome at Kittiwake. Enjoy the rest of your vacation. Kitty
Spectacular views and complete relaxation
Cottage was beautifully decorated, no detail overlooked and spotlessly clean. Fresh flowers and fresh cod and wine for a lovely meal supplied. Kitty met with us on arrival to answer any questions. Beautiful beaches a few minutes drive away. We watched whales right in front of the deck the first day. We have already rebooked for next year.
Hi Maeve & Randy.....thank-you for taking the time to review your stay at Kittiwake Cottage. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and discovered our little piece of paradise. So glad you booked again for next year and I've already booked another whale show for you :) Looking forward to seeing you again at Kittiwake. Kitty
Kittiwake cottage was the best cottage we’ve EVER stayed at!!!! Views, amenities and tranquility.
When my husband and I first arrived at kittiwake cottage the unpacking was u usually put on hold! We couldn’t take everything in that was in front of us at Kittiwake. The views from every window....spectacular. The cottage was inpecabley clean. The decor was absolutely beautiful. There wasn’t a nook or cranie that wasn’t tastefully thought of. From a pound of butter to all the condiments to a variety of staple spices to fresh cod and wine waiting for us! We really did feel welcomed and at home....away from home. Three beautiful arrangements of fresh flowers also added to the decor and our welcome. Kitty then came over to welcome us and answer any questions we had. Told us a little history of the area and our vacation started! We had so many hikes and land to explore and we put on, I’m sure many many miles on the old running shoes! We enjoyed the many trips on the boardwalk leading up to a lighthouse. Over 300 individual boards of wood were privately bought and either drawn on or written on to add so much more to this very unique boardwalk.
Kitti’s cottage is very private and peaceful. ☺️
We also, highly recommend this little gem to anyone wanting to see a picture perfect side of the island while enjoying all these wonderful amenities so lovingly and carefully placed in her cottage
Thank you so much Kitti for our new memories of western bay......in Kittiwake! 😊�
Heather & Bill......Thank-you so much for your wonderful review of your stay at Kittiwake Cottage. I am delighted that you really experienced what this area and the cottage is all about. It was so nice to meet you both and help make your vacation on the Rock an enjoyable one. I hope you made great memories to last forever. Please come back anytime and you will always be welcome at Kittiwake Cottage. Kitty
The perfect get away!
Enjoyed every minute...beautiful cottage, weather was fabulous..just like a dream come true!
A SPECTACULAR vacation spot and PERFECT hosts!
The contentment and peace of Kittiwake cottage is indescribable. The scenes from every window, the breathtaking physical surroundings and the comforts found throughout the cottage, all come together to make Kittiwake the best vacation spot we could imagine. We were there for a week, but still, wished we'd booked longer. Kitty went out of her way (as she does for all of her guests) to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The pictures of the cottage capture the mood and outstanding setting. We can't wait to return...and we most definitely will!
Phil & Sally....thank-you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Kittiwake Cottage. It is very rewarding to know that you really enjoyed your time with us. You are most welcome to come back anytime. Kitty
