It is conveniently located only 25 minutes from the city so, when staying at our vacation home, you can easily commute between the city and home to enjoy the different urban and rural experiences that 'the rock' has to offer. We, the owners, live in the adjacent side of the duplex and, while very quiet and respectful of your privacy, are available to answer any questions you may have or simply to interact if this is your preferrence. Our vacation house is privately located on a quiet lane off a side street in the community of Pouch Cove and extends one full side of the cul de sac. There is parking available beside the house for free in-lane parking. From the massive, beautifully furnished wrap-around patio, you will enjoy amazing views of the ocean, the horizon, and the Pouch Cove coastline. In season, whales and icebergs are commonly visible from our patio. For bird watching enthusiasts, wild birds frequently visit our well established feeders at our home and provide a great opportunity to observe our feathered friends closely and to enjoy some unique photo opportunities. We have even had some rare birds visit our feeders and return for a period of several days. The birds are visible from many areas inside the house and tend not to mind sharing the patio when we sit outside, making bird watching a real pleasure for our guests. The interior of the house was fully renovated 3 years ago. It is tastefully decorated and well-furnished with all the amenities to make your arrival a turn-key and stress-free event. We subscribe to cable TV with a large number of channels, including movie networks and netflix; have large screen TV's in each bedroom and the living-room; and offer unlimited high speed wi-fi internet. If you have a true appreciation of nature, you are sure to become spellbound by our two local hiking trails (part of the East Coast Trail hiking experience) in our area. Each is only about a 5 min walk from the home and has its own natural beauty and unique landmarks that will build life-long memories that are sure to leave you longing for more. For those who prefer to relax at a beach park or those with young families, there is a fresh water beach with paddle boat rentals, a mini-golf course, and country hiking trails at Marine Park, about a 5 min drive from the house. Our vacation home is more than just a nice place to stay while visiting our beautiful province. It is a true, away from it all, experience capturing the true essence of Newfoundland.
