“Heaven on Earth!!”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What a wonderful way to be introduced to Newfoundland! Thank you Karen and David for providing such a lovely "home away from home"! Pristine and everything you could need plus more! We loved sitting on the Upper Nest deck after a day of hiking and visiting St John's ( a very short drive into the city) . My words could not do justice to our experience, so let me just say I highly recommend this unit to anyone (lots of stairs but so worth it folks!!) . It was an "I wish we had just one more day" vacations....grateful!!

Hi Dave,

It was most enjoyable having you stay, and that you fully appreciated the amenities, especially on foggy days!

Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014

This is a wonderful place to stay-the house and the community. We've enjoyed
our time here so much. And from Mistaken Point (565 million years of
history) to Cape Spear, to The Rooms (etc.)-it was all very special to us.
Tomorrow-on to Twilingate!

“What a great place!”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We were looking for a place near St-John to act as an anchor for our daily excursions and I could not have found better. Petty Harbour is a very nice little village deeply nestled in the bay. The Nest is very comfortable with all the amenities you can ask for. We found what we needed at the local small store and a little further up the road in Goulds. I found people very helpful when asked for information. Thanks to David and Karen for their kindness. I hope to return one day for sure!
