We parked our rental for most of our 1 week stay at Bannerman House as we could walk EVERYWHERE. Water, Duckworth and, of course, George Street were not longer than a 15 minute walk. As were The Rooms, the Haunted Walk, The Folk Festival and The Regatta at Quidi Vidi( have to really like a civic holiday determined by the weather :) ). The house itself is incredibly well finished, fully stocked, and the private 'garden with fish pond' in the back is a quiet get away from the hustle and bustle of St. Johns. Added bonus: the jetted soaker tub felt just fine after a day of walking the hills of St. John's.

Thank you so much for the exceptionally kind and detailed review. You picked the best dates to come to Newfoundland, and arrived just as the weather was getting hot (finally), managed to take in all the festivals, and were here during the time when my garden is at its peak in beauty. I'm so glad my home was part of your adventure. You picked such perfect dates, I call you my superstar clients for the season. I'd love for you to return sometime. Thanks again!!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! Sorry that you had to park across the street. We realized after you had left that the truck parked in front of our door had in fact been broken down. We asked the owner to get it moved and he obliged. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bannerman House is a great place to stay if you're in St. John's. My wife and I stayed for 4 nights at the start of a 3 week tour of New Foundland. It's a very comfortable home, well decorated, furnished and fully equipped, with the bonus of a small garden at the back. Restaurants and bars etc., are within walking distance. The Yellow Belly Brewery is the best bar/restaurant - with good beers, food and friendly, helpful staff. Oliver's Bistro is excellent.
Hiking along parts of the East Coast Trail is also a must if you're able.
I hope the other places we've booked to stay in are as good as Bannerman House.

My husband and I chose St. John's for a week vacation because of how different it would be from our home in northern Illinois, USA. The city and the countryside were wonderfully different but Bannerman House, and especially Bonnie, made us feel right at home. We found the property very comfortable, equipped with everything we needed. It's located in a quaint but very cool neighborhood, convenient to many points of interest. We rented a car but found ourselves walking to many interesting places.
Bonnie was absolutely wonderful. As our arrival was to be Victoria Day when stores were closed, she offered to do a little shopping for us. She gave us driving directions to avoid construction. She was quick to respond to any inquiries, always very pleasant and helpful.
We're happy to recommend Bannerman House!

“Wow! ”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We booked Bannerman House for a conference and absolutely loved it! So close to the conference hotel but also to downtown and all kinds of great local attractions. This home is beautifully kept and the host, Bonnie, was very accommodating and helpful with any questions or requests. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in St. John's!

The pictures do not do this place justice, nor do the reviews sum up how great Bonnie the owner is.... We traveled to Newfoundland for a family wedding and were there over Christmas, and Bonnie put up a beautiful Christmas tree, and decorations for us, and even had welcome treats for us.. The place is on a quiet street, yet near everything and a nice walk to great restaurants and pubs.... Bonnie your the bestest.. Thanks

Thank you, Kelly and Brady, and thank everyone for the kind reviews. At the beginning of this year, we debated on renting the house full-time or as a vacation rental. We definitely made the right choice. We love our " little house on the corner " and hope that everyone who stays feels it's charm. It's been a pleasure being a small part of your travel experiences. We can't wait to get the 2015 season started.

“Probably the best value/money ratio in St. John's”
Reviewed 19 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

I was looking for a reasonably priced place with two bedrooms in St. John’s. Based on previous reviews I picked up Bannerman’s place and I don’t regret my choice. This is probably the best value/price ratio you can get in St. John’s. You get two bedrooms (each at different floor) and a cosy and spacious lilving room with fully-equipped kitchen. For those who doesn’t like cooking or don’t have time to do so – there is plenty of restaurants just around the corner (mind you, this place is in the very city centre).
Beds are comfortable and big enough and so are the bathroom. The smaller bedroom on the second floor has a little bit bigger bathroom; the larger bedroom (on the third floor) gets with a smaller one. Water was hot any time of the day or night. There is a washing machine + dryer, microvawe oven and a standard oven, toaster, coffee maker, iron etc. etc. – this is a fully equipped two-bedroom house.
Even though we did not have a chance to barbeque outside in the yard (it was December when we were there), I guess this would be a lovely experience.
Last, but no least comes the customer service. Our plane was late (we arrived at 1 am) and the manager/owner put into the fridge more than enough food for the two of us (cereals, yogurts, fruit salad, milk etc.) to make through the night. Thank you Bonnie!
To sum up, this is probably the best place in St. John’s you can get within this price range. I really recommend it!
