Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday bungalow in Heart's Delight-Islington - WB Heart's Delight

Authentic Fisherman's Cottage

Note- $CDN pricing found under "Rates" tab.

Heart's Delight is a small quiet outport fishing village centrally located on the "Baccalieu Trail", one of the four eastern Newfoundland tourist driving routes. Nearby are the towns of Heart's Desire and Heart's Content, not far from the town of Cupids. The location is great for mini-road trips throughout the small coastal villages around eastern Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula. The house is a 1940's bungalow restored to a rustic-luxe finish, with great beds, premium linens and a great ocean view. It is located beside it's sister bungalow, the EJ Sooley House.

From St. John's- 1 hr 15 mins.

Excellent access to all eastern tourist driving routes:

From Cape Shore Trail driving route- 45 mins

From Irish Loop driving route- 1 hr

From Heritage Run driving route- 1 hr 30 mins

The house is classed as 'Rustic Charm' or 'Eco-Luxe', with a unique combination of new and original furnishings complimented by luxury linens and amenities for a comfortable authentic experience. Great for short side trips from St. John's for those with limited time to explore the scenic historical outport communities.

Located directly on the ocean with immediate access to the original 100 year old fisherman's trails that connect the towns. Hike for hours.

What an incredible experience from start to finish - we only wish we could stay longer! From making the initial arrangements - Ken responded by email promptly and answered all our questions. To arrival - we were absolutely delighted by this little gem. Beautifully restored and surprisingly roomy, this house was perfect for our family of four plus the grandparents! It had absolutely everything we needed. The beds were super comfy. What an exceptional view. We could not have asked for more. But we got more - a kitchen party to boot! Jerry and the band and some friendly neighbours - dancing to music in our kitchen until the wee hours. We did not expect such fun. Although we did not take one of the cultural tours - I recommend it - these people at Cape Race know how to plan an adventure. Elizabeth was an exceptional hostess and was absolutely key to making our stay special. She greeted us with smiles and homemade goodies and her thoughtfulness was very much appreciated. Saying goodbye really felt like we were leaving family. See you next summer!

Amazing Family Getawar

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Gerry and Elizabeth! You made our stay amazing! We were not disappointed when it came to the Kitchen party. We met so many new friends. The music and Schreeching in was such a treat for my family to experience. The beds were so comfortable and the house was just what we expected. We stayed here for 5 days and experienced the food an culture that Newfoundland has to offer. Would love to return again!
