Rented this house from July 8-15, 2014 with my husband, young daughter and mother-in-law. Located only a 10-15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from downtown St. John's and just a block and a half from The Rooms, a grocery store, liquor store and coffee shop, this house was perfect for a family looking to explore the city.
The house was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay (linens, kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies, 3 cable TVs, internet, etc.), is tastefully decorated with a ton of beautiful artwork and included a parking pass. The house is also much bigger and prettier that the pictures in this listing show, with a comfortable living room, good-sized dining room, eat-in kitchen, and 3 bedrooms.
The master bedroom is adorned with a romantic chandelier, Queen-sized bed, and a fireplace. The second bedroom has a double bed and the third room has a twin bed which was perfect for my young daughter.
Theresa and Stephanie (the property managers) were pleasant to deal with. The only reason I am not giving a perfect rating is that, due to the age of the home, several of the windows are painted shut, making it difficult to "air-out" the house or capitalize on the cool Newfoundland breeze. Stephanie was kind enough to lend us some fans to help with the uncharacteristic heatwave we experienced while we were there, but having windows at opened would have been helpful.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this rental to others as well.
