At Ocean's Edge - Beautiful Views and Modern Conveniences

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

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.

We were so lucky to have the sun shine on this beautiful home, the deck area is a fantastic place to sit and watch the ocean, the house had beautiful comfortable furnishings, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen or bathroom, if you forget anything they have it covered, we were pleased to find milk and orange juice in the fridge and plenty of coffee, it meant we didn’t have to go grocery shopping after a long flight.

The TV and internet were great, the house was lovely, we sat on the deck as much as possible and watched the sun set every night.

I remember reading some reviews complaining about people parking to go on the trail, this didn’t bother us one bit, we were happy to share such a stunning view and there were very few of them.

There were plenty of towels, we didn’t cook but there was everything you could possibly need.

If I was made to find a negative, it would be the guilty feeling if you wanted to watch TV, coming inside leaving that beautiful view.

This is quite an expensive rental, as they saying goes “you get what you pay for” and you certainly do.

Beautiful Cottage with stunning views on the East Coast Trail

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this immaculate and well equipped modern cottage. The deck juts out at waters edge for beautiful vistas of Conception Bay and Bell's island. The cottage is very well equipped with all the modern conveniences and lots of unexpected frills including fixings for breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our easy access to the sights and restaurants of St. John's as well as the charms of the small community of Portugal Cove. The house fronts directly on the water and the front lawn ends at the start of the challenging Picco's Ridge segment of the East Coast Trail. This was an amazing property to stay in and we highly recommend it!

Short Beach

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely little house at the end of a road not far from the ferry in Portugal Cove-St Phillips. Lesley and John, owners with whom we interacted, were warm, welcoming and responsive to our needs. They were generous about supplying kitchen and bathroom items. Beds and furniture were very comfortable and the kitchen very workable. The location has its pros and cons. Mostly pros. The setting is gorgeous, with a view of Conception Bay and Bell Island. Only yards from the front door of the house is a trail head for the Eastern Trail. We were there during cod fishing season so between hikers and people going fishing there was a steady flow of car and foot traffic from early in the morning until late at night. So much so that the road in front of the house was very much a parking lot and people congregated there, talking loudly and leaving trash behind. The place was so nice that we adapted to this unexpected dynamic but we might not have chosen this spot if we'd known. But we happened to be looking for quiet. Someone else might not mind. Also, I take it this traffic depends on the season so you may want to inquire about it before making your booking. All in all we were very pleased with our time at this property.

Beautifully decorated, comfy and everything you need for your stay.

  • 5 of 5

This place is a little slice of heaven.. The view is spectacular, and the locals are so friendly. Im sad to leave. I recommend this place to anyone! Oh on a side note, we had whales in abundance. On our last day, we had two whales put on a little show for us just as a little farwell gift.

Unbelievable Views! Every amenity needed for a private rental.

  • 5 of 5

This place is beyond expectations! Absolutely Amazing! I'm from this amazing town within walking distance to my family home, But ive always stopped by this house on the dead end road to walk the trail on most holidays from Ontario 2-3 times per year. Always wondered and dreamt to see inside, let alone stay there. Truly spectacular place! Highly recommended! Looking forward to staying next year same time, or earlier if so lucky!

As would be expected with travelling tourists or clientele in a private rental like this, most common cooking ingredients and other misc condiment products needed for meals and such are left behind for future guests making it easy for entertaining family or guests. The outdoor deck and Bbq are a truly added bonus.

Lesley was very informative and helpful in every email, phone conversation regarding the premises.
