More than just a vacation home, we are well situated to offer a true NL experience. While "off the beaten path" in the ocean-front community of Pouch Cove, our home is only 25 min from the city. The property has beautifully manicured grounds & a huge wrap-around furnished patio with amazing views of horizon, coastline, & ocean. Fire up the grill, feel the country air against your skin, & listen to wild birds singing in the trees & feed at our feeders. Breathe in fresh air; Breathe out stress.
Our delightful holiday home is of duplex style construction that captures the true essence of outport living in our beautiful province of Newfoundland. 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 4 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. Book a stay with us where we go out of our way to help make your dreams a reality !
Pouch Cove has a long heritage as a fishing community. Many long-term older residents are former fishermen. Many are direct descendants, others are new families moving into the community. The community is rural and has an abundance of nature perks (East Coast Hiking trail on its coastal Pouch Cove terrain, bird watching of both sea and land birds, iceberg and whale watching experiences). The country air has a restorative appeal and is the perfect place to re-energize and just escape to nature. Residents tend to be friendly and pleasant
Our vacation home is quite appealing to the various species of wild birds in our area. These birds visit repeatedly each day, feed at the feeders, rest in the trees, or run around on the patio and railings. These lovely creatures provide hours of pleasure and entertainment and can be easily seen from within the house.
Iceberg Finder app can help with location of icebergs to help direct where to best go to find icebergs (icebergs can stay in a region for days or weeks but can also move great distances is short time with sea currents so this app would be a great way to track their location on any specific day)
