Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in St. John's

Stunning oceanfront home overlooking the North Atlantic in scenic Portugal Cove, Newfoundland. Be inspired by breath-taking views from every window. Sit back and relax on the wrap-around deck which features adirondack chairs and a fire pit to enjoy the scenery and perhaps catch a glimpse of whales cruising by or an iceberg. Just a few steps from the house, feel free to cast off and try your luck at catching a few fish from the point when in season.

Inside, enjoy the luxuries of a full modern kitchen, living room with cable and wifi, a dining room table set for 8. There is also a telescope to view up close the beautiful Bell Island and an electric piano to create a masterpiece if you're feeling so inclined!

Steps from East Coast Trail - Piccos Ridge Path. Moments from the Bell Island Ferry. Short drive to local restaurants - Ferry Last Stop Cafe for a funky one of a kind experience (try the Shoo Fly Pie), Beachy Cove Cafe and By Da Beach for the best fish and chips. 10 km's to the airport and 16 km's drive to the heart of downtown St John's.

Monthly or longer term rentals would be considered as well - rates to be negotiated.

completely glorious experience. a jewel of a place beautifully cared for by kind and thoughtful hosts. I could sit on the rocking chair and watch the ferry cross the sea endlessly. Portugal Cove will not leave my heart soon.

Ideal Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Just have to say what a beautiful property this was. We stayed for 5 nights and used it as our base for touring the St. John's area, sight-seeing and hiking. The owners have thought of everything here. Comfortable, clean & convenient - yes, but so well-designed and decorated! We spent the few dry evenings on the unique deck toasting to the sunset. It is located right at the East Coast Trail trailhead, so bit of traffic there with folks either parking or turning around. It's a short walk to the Bell Island ferry and an easy drive into the city of St. John's.

Thank you for this wonderful memory!

Gorgeous home.Gorgeous view.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home Lesley...it was a wonderful vacation. Saw whales and eagles everyday while sitting in the comfortable Adirondack chairs on that part of your deck which is literally above the waters. Wonderful.

Beautiful little gem!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up Loop Drive, we knew we were home. The cottage was exactly as described, but the view, the village, the location all surpassed expectations. We could easily have spent two weeks here, the best home base for exploring the St John's area. Thank you Lesley for sharing your cottage with us. We hope to be back again in the future.

Great getaway in Portugal Cove

  • 5 of 5

This rental exceeded our expectations - it is clean, modern and well-fitted out (big TV, Bell Express vu, internet). The gas fireplace is great for taking the chill off a cool evening. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The front deck and sitting area offer great views of the "tickle" and up into Conception Bay where the sun goes down. Looking South you see Portugal Cove harbour where the ferry runs in an out to Bell Island (where there is an old iron mine that offers great tours - highly recommended). The house is very private being located at the end of the street though you will get the occasional walkers and fishermen crossing between the house and shore to access the trail that runs up the shoreline to the North. Portugal Cove is pretty and offers a couple of restaurants. You might be able to get a fisherman to part with a freshly caught cod on the harbour front. Portugal Cove is 20 minutes or so from the airport and another 20 minutes puts you into the heart of St. Johns. The area offers a good number of shoreline walks including the one starting right outside the house that offers easy to moderately challenging hiking along the shore and up into the woods. As the website indicates, its not the best place for young kids given the presence of the cliff lined shoreline. Great place, great location - highly recommended.
