“Gorgeous home, love the location”
Reviewed June 8, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This house has gorgeous character in a great neighbourhood (very close to the Georgetown Bakery (Montreal style bagels!) and the Cafe (so good). Lots of room, we enjoyed the art and local books. Very quiet neighbourhood, a stone's throw from The Rooms and the best view in St. John's.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had the house to ourselves which was great. There were 5 of travelling together and we enjoyed the freedom to be able to move around and not get in each others way. We were able to walk downtown and to the Rooms. Grocery store close by with a Liquor Express. Parking was a bit hectic due to repaving of the street in front of the house, but it was not a problem and could park near the house. The only time we used our car was to go to Signal Hill and Cape Spear. There are hiking/walking trail in and around the area we were at. All was good.

“A well situated home from home”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We and another couple shared this home for a week. It was as well equipped as our own home and close to down town, the Rooms and the magnificent Basilica. All were actually within walking distance. Theresa herself was extremely helpful and welcoming. An unexpected bonus was the artwork displayed and the extensive library. Of particular interest was the latest edition of the delightful Newfoundland dictionary. Particularly enjoyable is Rex Murphy's introduction to the dictionary with his inimitable grasp of language as well as Newfoundland's history. The kitchen table was a great place to begin and end our day as we contemplated the many wonderful places in and around St. John's to explore.

“Absolutely perfect!!!”

Easy to get around and to downtown. Close to everything. Sobey's, beer/liquor store, pharmacy, etc is about a three minute walk. Local Georgetown Pub, about a two minute walk, and our new second home! People there are great!! The taxi companies are quick and efficient and less than $7 to anywhere we went. (Jiffy Cab 722-2222)
We all strongly recommend this cute perfect little house and would stay here again if we ever get the chance to visit St. John's again!!!

“Great place, great location”
Reviewed September 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here as our first stop in St. John's. We were two couples. Rooms and beds were very comfortable. We did not have a vehicle and were able to walk everywhere including the museum, Signal Hill, Quidi Vidi, downtown, and of course George Street. Loved the location of this rental. The grocery store is nearby to stock up a bit; if you are walking take the trail. This rental offered everything we needed.

“Great Stay in St. John's - the pictures don't do justice to the house”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

Rented this house from July 8-15, 2014 with my husband, young daughter and mother-in-law. Located only a 10-15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from downtown St. John's and just a block and a half from The Rooms, a grocery store, liquor store and coffee shop, this house was perfect for a family looking to explore the city.

The house was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay (linens, kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies, 3 cable TVs, internet, etc.), is tastefully decorated with a ton of beautiful artwork and included a parking pass. The house is also much bigger and prettier that the pictures in this listing show, with a comfortable living room, good-sized dining room, eat-in kitchen, and 3 bedrooms.

The master bedroom is adorned with a romantic chandelier, Queen-sized bed, and a fireplace. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third room has a twin bed which was perfect for my young daughter.

Theresa and Stephanie (the property managers) were pleasant to deal with. The only reason I am not giving a perfect rating is that, due to the age of the home, several of the windows are painted shut, making it difficult to "air-out" the house or capitalize on the cool Newfoundland breeze. Stephanie was kind enough to lend us some fans to help with the uncharacteristic heatwave we experienced while we were there, but having windows at opened would have been helpful.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this rental to others as well.
