We booked the Tara House in Ferryland as part of a 1-week vacation in Newfoundland (our first time) and we loved it. The house was perfect for us - 3 adults - it was relaxing, close to the sights we wanted to see in the area, and had all the amenities we needed. We had the upstairs, and it was great that no one was on the lower level. It really felt like home. Thank you Selena!
Tara House is lovely. Perfectly situated to explore the Irish Loop. House is very comfortable with all the amenities. We rented the second floor and the view is spectacular. There is a grocery store close by as well as a fuel station for your vehicle. The owner is wonderful; very helpful. I would definitely recommend Tara House to anyone wanting to visit the Avalon Peninsula. We spent mornings watching whales from the balcony and afternoons hiking the Eastern Coast Trail or sitting on the cliffs. Beautiful.
Superb property with stunning views. Everything you could wish for in a rental with a real homely touch. Owners extremely helpful with notes and guides.
Ferryland and the Irish Loop are well worth the visit. O'Brians boat tour is a must and a trip to St. Vincent beach saw a pod of 10/12 hump back wales many only 30/40ft. from shore. St.Johns and signal hill outstanding as were the views from Cape fear. Many sights in St.Johns but would recommend a visit to the R.C.Basilica.
Many pretty drives and bays a photographers dream.
Saw wild caribou on the Loop plus bold eagles but the only thing we did not see in the two weeks we were in Newfoundland were any Moose.
Would recommend a trip here to anyone and Tara House is the ultimate place to rest your head.
The house was beautiful. Located approx. 1 hour from St.John's, very easy to find. Quiet and serene surrounds with very high chances for wildlife spotting. Close to a supermarket, Kavanaghs restaurant (amazing home cooked meals) and lighthouse picnics! The inside of the house was in great condition and spotless! The owner Selena was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any inquiries we had. The kitchen even came stocked with some of the basics (tea/coffee/sugar. etc.). We were a group of 4 ladies and had more than enough space in the upper level. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation and time away, but also to the travellers making their way around newfoundland/east coast canada, even for a few nights, its worth it!!
The house was great, we rally enjoyed our stay. it was very well equipped, bright, spacious, and very clean. We rented the top floor (you can rent both floors if you want). Very easy to get the key, easy to communicate with the owner, and we got our deposit back with no issues. We are hoping to return soon.
This home was well equipped and a very welcoming place to stay. The food in the fridge was a great touch and most appreciated.

We stayed here 2 years ago and we happy to return again. Very happy to see that overall things were as nice as when we stayed then. A great improvement was the paving of the driveway as it is quite steep and was difficult to navigate before at times.
Thanks as always for the eggs, milk and bread as this helps with settling in the first day of your arrival. We watched a Minke whale most days right from the living room window or balcony.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again to enjoy this million dollar view!
