  • Everything we needed for nice family retreat.

    "We stayed for only two nights, but I wish it was more. The house itself is quite spacious and welcoming, located in a big lot with tall trees all around making it significantly less windy than what you'd experience 100 ft away in an open lot. House and the yard are nicely maintained and make for really joyful vacation with your loved ones. It was especially great for us since we got to bring our dogs with us as well which made the whole trip that much more fun. It is also close to trails and beautiful beaches (walking distance), not to mention Terra Nova National Park minutes away and Clarenville and White Hills within an hour for the outdoors experiences. The owner is also very nice and quick to respond with anything you need to ask. We would definitely plan another stay and recommend it to all."

  • Cozy, comfortable vacation retreat & amazing views

    "When we look for vacation rentals, we look for places which offer character without sacrificing comfort. The Bird House nailed this. The house is built to take advantage of its view with huge windows on each of its floors and a lovely wrap around deck with picnic table. The first floor was ideal for cozying up with a book, settling into conversation and sharing a meal (there was also a bathroom cleverly tucked into the closet for the water heater), the second floor had two cozy bedrooms and a bathroom (with a rainfall shower head) met its purposes well, and the third served as a marvelous aerie with amazing views and two comfy rocker/ottoman combos. Second, the house has wonderful character--we loved the colors and the decorations as they perfectly captured the feel of a beach house. We also appreciated all of the books about NL. Finally, the amenities were modern and in good condition--fridge, stove, washer and dryer. Though it was not a problem for us, there is not much privacy in the house as the walls and floors are not insulated. The stairs might prove tough for folks with limited mobility, too. In terms of location, we could not have asked for better. We did a ton of driving while we were in NL (4200 miles!), so we did not mind hour to hour and a half day trips to get to the neighboring peninsulas. Though we admit we quickly became biased toward the Birdhouse, we didn't see a neater spot or cozier house or community in our travels than the one we were renting. The better known town of Trinity seemed to have more to offer in terms of restaurants and nightlife, but we prefer to cook in and stayed in at night reading or playing games. Wish we had known to stock up on groceries before heading out to the house, though, as there were very limited options for produce once we arrived. Jane, the owner was wonderful, offering travel suggestions in the months prior to our arrival and then proving wonderfully responsive when a couple of questions came up during our stay. Just as impressive was Gord, the caretaker, who had to come by to fix a ripped screen. In a classic example of NL friendliness, Gord got to chatting with us and soon offered to take us fishing. Thanks to Gord's skill as a fisherman, we reeled in a couple cod which served as the basis for perhaps the finest fish I have ever eaten. In the end, our only regret was that we didn't rent for longer and that it will likely be a while before we return to "the Rock"!"

  • Large house, beautiful grounds close to beach

    "The property met the needs of three families quite well. With 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms (and lots of towels), there was space for all. Kitchen was a little small for large group but mostly functional (could use some new pots for large group cooking), lovely deck outside if the weather cooperates. The house had a cozy homey feel but could benefit from some fresh paint and new mattresses in some rooms. Would book again."
