About the Property

2 Bedroom,1 Bath, cosy newly renovated Cottage on the Oceans Edge on Harbour.

The magnificent view from this newly renovated cottage will leave you breathless. It sits perched on the Narrows, at the mouth of St.John's harbour, with sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean and sunsets over the St.John's skyline. IMPORTANT NOTE : THERE IS NO BOOKING FEE FOR THIS PROPERTY. RENTAL RATES MAY BE LISTED IN U.S. $ DOLLARS. MY Can.$ RATES are from Can.$150 per night ( Winter.), and Summer, from Can.$225 per night. UNDER THE RATES SECTION, YOU CAN CHOOSE CURRENCY OF CHOICE BY CHANGING THE FLAG / CURRENCY CONVERTOR.

This welcoming home away from home has 2 bedrooms, with one queen bed and one double bed, and a 4 piece bathroom with washer and dryer. The open-plan, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room offers floor-to- ceiling windows to make the most of the stunning views. There is hardwood flooring throughout the house, with scattered Persian rugs and a Pacific Energy wood stove to warm up those cool Newfoundland evenings.

The house sits on the foundation of an 18 th. century fortification. This was also the sight of the original Harbour Pilot House, which helped vessels navigate the narrow harbour opening. With the water lapping at the rocks below the deck, you get that relaxed seaside vibe, but downtown St.John's, with its lively bars, world-class restaurants and unique shops is only a 6-minute drive away. Feel like a walk ? The East Coast Hiking trail begins less than a thousand feet from the house. Or if you're in a mellow mood, just sit on the huge wrap-around deck and watch the ocean liners, small fishing boats and whales pass by, just a few feet away.

Magical views, the serenity of the open water and easy-going living is all at your fingertips in this dramatic setting. You won't be disappointed !
