Great place, Great location, modern, upgraded, clean. Just as adverstised

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apt. the last week of May. First time in St Johns, and assumed the location was center to the activities we wanted to do. When we arrived , we were met by the owner , who was gracious and helpful and answered all our questions and made suggestions as to what to see and do. As we explored, we recognized how good the location was. A short walking distance to the downtown core and George street, as well in the opposite direction, the Battery area. The water front was only two blocks away as well. Great restaurants not only beside us , but again only minutes by walking. The apt was quiet and well decorated and newly upgraded. When we had friends that were staying in the local hotel come by, they were envious of not only how large a space we had, but also the price and location.

When we come back , Nick will be our first phone call to reserve his apt again.

The parking during the day became a non issue as the Church side street parking was free as the meters were all disabled.

The unit was very good, excellent location for Downtown St. John's. It is easy walking to so much!

  • 4 of 5

We found the unit to be comfortable and very clean. Would recommend to anyone looking for centrally located accommodation. There is shopping, wide variety of eating establishments with easy walking distance. Four within a few feet. Although, located on a busy downtown street the unit was very quiet. There is no parking but there is parking garage just a short distance away, there is also meter parking in front of the building.

Beautiful old downtown St. John's NL

  • 5 of 5

Arrived in St. John's on September 6, 2016 after spending the first week on the west and north coasts of NL. We were very pleased with all of our accommodations to this point and 280 Duckworth St. Unit 302 was no exception. The apartment is well located in the old part of St. John's with many restaurants and various attractions within walking distance.

The unit was exceptionally clean and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable and the building is very quiet. My wife and I were extremely happy with our choice. We picked this apartment based on location, pictures, reviews and price which were accurately indicated in the listing.

The only minor challenge was the metered parking on the street. Parking is free at night and on weekends. between 8 am and 6 pm, the meter has to be fed every 2 hours. A suggestion would be offer a parking pass for any of the side streets.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St. John's and would most definitely stay at 280 Duckworth St. again when visiting the next time.

First Class Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited St. John's for a week and thoroughly enjoyed staying at 280 Duckworth. Nick was very helpful, although since the building has been completely renovated using first class standards, we never needed assistance. We actually thought we were the first ones to ever use the apartment since everything was perfect and clean! The building is very quiet; you never hear the neighbors. It's located within walking distance of everything you'd want to see or do in St. John's.

Excellent location, matches photos, exceptionally clean!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in St John's, so much to do and see. The condo is well maintained, beautifully decorated and in a great location in downtown. Many, many restaurants a short walk away. The highlight for us was visiting "The Rooms", easy walking distance away. Suggestion would be having helpful visitor information and cooking stables left in the condo. Great time in St John's!
