Complete Privacy on a One Acre Lot, Walking Distance to Beaches

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Our summer home is walking distance to two beaches and a lake. It is completely surrounded by trees - perfect for families who want their own space and lots of room for children to run.

You’ll love our place because of the privacy, the cosy atmosphere, the wild flowers and the nearby beaches. Enjoy watching the capelin roll, cod jigging or walking the beautiful trails along the ocean.

The place isn't perfect. It's just a little summer cottage that we try to fix up a little bit each summer while we are home. If you are okay with that, the house is great value for money and it has wonderful energy. A perfect spot for families to reconnect in a private setting.

Perfect for couples, solo adventurers, families with small children.

Terra Nova National Park short drive away as are golf courses and salmon fishing.

The house is located about a two and a half hour drive from St. John's International Airport, a one hour drive from Gander International Airport.

Non smoking.

Pets considered on a case by case basis.

NOTE: Ask about discounts if you are interested in renting for longer than a month during the off season. We would be happy to offer local monthly rental rates teachers or retirees. Please email me with questions.

About Lisa

We are originally from Western Newfoundland and bought this house in 2004. We have been in love with the Eastport/Sandy Cove area ever since.

We live in Singapore and stay in the house so we can catch up with family and friends.

We hold a pig roast at the house every summer. It's a great spot for family reunions and get togethers.

The place isn't perfect - we work on it a bit each summer. But it is a real gem of a getaway for those looking for privacy in a quiet setting.

It was a fantastic location! Everyone loved it, especially the pool table and yard!

  • 4 of 5

We have a great stay! The house was well equipped and in good shape. We thoroughly enjoyed the patio and back yard and the pool table on those rainy days. It's not far from the main road but still feels like your seculed (which we loved) lots of privacy. Its located very close to the local attractions and a few walking trails. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful location, home requires some attention.

  • 3 of 5

This home is located in a private and lovely garden. It contains everything one would need for a comfortable stay.

These are the things we did not like:

- no instructions on how to operate the TV

- not enough cookware, some of the frying pans were great, some need to be replaced

- no cushions for the beautiful patio dining set. It would have been lovely to sit outside when BBQing but we couldn't. Loved the enclosure. Some of the patio steps are rotted and should be replaced asap.

- the kitchen cupboards need to be gutted and cleaned. There are many basic supplies but some are outdated and too much of the same with only small amounts in each. The dishes are sufficient but disorganized in the cupboards. It needs to be tided.

- nothing to the window in one of the downstairs bedrooms

There are lots of towels although nothing really matches. It wasn't a big issue but we did notice it.

Beds were comfortable. The duvet cover on one of the downstairs beds needs to be washed. A hair dryer in the downstairs bathroom would have been nice. It was nice that there was shampoo/conditioner , soap and body wash in the bathrooms.

The dining table set is quite nice but the chair seats need some attention, i.e some additional padding and new upholstery.

This might sound picky. We did enjoy our stay. The place was clean. The kitchen cupboards need extra cleaning.

Owner's Response: All points well taken. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the privacy offered by the property. Our family loves staying there and we are excited to share it with others looking to explore the area. However, we do point out in the description that this property is a cabin and we work on it a little bit every summer. Mis-matched towels is normal in cabins as family members all contribute to the furnishings, dishes, towels, pots, etc. This is all reflected in the low price we offer. Perhaps a hotel would be a better choice for you next time around.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sandy Cove. The house is very private, with ample room for two families and everything you would need in the kitchen. The location is awesome as you can walk to the beach, we also recommend bringing bikes! We hope to return again soon.

Everything we needed for nice family retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for only two nights, but I wish it was more. The house itself is quite spacious and welcoming, located in a big lot with tall trees all around making it significantly less windy than what you'd experience 100 ft away in an open lot. House and the yard are nicely maintained and make for really joyful vacation with your loved ones. It was especially great for us since we got to bring our dogs with us as well which made the whole trip that much more fun. It is also close to trails and beautiful beaches (walking distance), not to mention Terra Nova National Park minutes away and Clarenville and White Hills within an hour for the outdoors experiences. The owner is also very nice and quick to respond with anything you need to ask. We would definitely plan another stay and recommend it to all.
