My boyfriend and I stayed here the last week of July 2016 and love this house! We decided to stay in the bedroom upstairs, which was very comfy. The caretaker was very flexible with us when our arrival time changed and was ready to meet me with the key when I arrived. The owner was very accommodating and helped communicate with the caretaker for me since I elected not to purchase a phone plan. The kitchen had leftover food in the freezer and cabinets, which was clutch for us because we missed the grocery stores closing time. The house also has some great maps and brochures for you to peruse to get ideas of activities if you haven't already planned everything out. We unfortunately got stuck with rain and fog almost our entire trip so didn't get to see the sunsets from the deck as described. But we could see how beautiful of a view it would be if the weather had cooperated. We did however, do a nice hike on the trails behind the house - didn't see any moose. Everything in the house was functional and we were glad there was a closet of board games, cards and puzzles for entertainment. We cooked some nice meals and had a nice relaxing time at the house at night after a long day of driving around the island exploring. There was even a small cooler we were able to borrow from the house to keep our lunches cool. The house was very clean and cozy and is in a great location to explore just the Avalon peninsula for a week. We would recommend it to anyone!
Almost new, light-flooded house with great view over the bay.
The house provides everything you need... and more....
Not the type of vacation home where you find 6 spoons, 6 knives and one towel for each person ....more like taking over the household of the owner for a limited time...
Friendly ( and very helpful in our case ...) communication with the owner prior to, during and after our stay. Owner lives far away, but there is a local contact person.
Ideal place for those who can appreciate and subsequently treat with care a house that is built with the heart and good taste.
This review reflects our stay in August 2015.
We, a family of 4 ( Kids 11 and 13 ) came over from Germany.
