“Great Ocean Side Cabin for a Family of Four”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We originally tried to book Puffins Landing but for more than 2 ppl you had to book the Blue Whales cabin on the ocean front (not a bad compromise). It exceeded our expectations and it was nice to be spread out after being on the road for a long period as it had two full bedrooms, full kitchen and a living room. Views were exceptional too. Eric "Puffin Man" was gracious enough to show us around Bona Vista and area to ensure we enjoyed the best of the area. He acquired us fresh lobster (from literally right across the street!) and took us on a couple trails that provided amazing view of the coast-line. We had a great stay and it was definitely a hi-light to our trip.

Room Tip: Staying in the Blue Whales cabin does not provide breakfast even though you book through a bed &...

This was the 3rd time that my partner and I had visited this b n b. It was also the 2nd time we brought another couple with us. The owners were very welcoming to us and our friends. One of our friends even has a physical disability and they did everything they could to accommodate him. They are also lbgt positive and respectful. They took quite a shining to us and our friends. We consider them (Maureen and Keith) good friends now and look forward to seeing them and hearing from them. Of utmost importance, for those considering a visit: the home is clean and safe, the breakfast was quite large and hearty, the owners are always available to help, they are extremely knowledge regarding the area and local attractions, and they have an awesome sense of humour mixed in with ample professionalism. I guarantee that, 100%, you and your loved ones will enjoy your stay. Make sure to book really early. They book fast, which gives you lots of proof that they are good what what they do. Take care!!! :) - BR

Spent a night here and we were greeted by Kieth who seems to like to tell everyone about the secret hiking trail. Ask him where to go as it was as close to heaven as I have ever been. Our room was very nice with plenty of room. Breakfast was great and we got to meet Eric then. He, like Kieth (brothers) can both tell a story.
There is so much to do and see here we should have stayed 2 night.

We really enjoyed our stay with Keith and Maureen. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to make sure we saw all the highlights of Bonivista in the short time we had. Breakfast was spectacular and the accomodations were excellent. We would highly recommend this B&B.

Our room was the entire second floor - lots of room, big bathroom with both tub and shower and a king size bed! Our hosts (and their delightful little dog) were very welcoming. Keith's brother entertained us over a lovely breakfast - we could have stayed all day to hear the stories about his photography adventures! This is a newer building so very clean and well maintained.

We enjoyed our stay at Puffins Landing B & B. The king size bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean. Maureen adapted the breakfast for me because of my food allergies, and Keith took us to see some awesome rock formations and a secluded area with puffins and other birds.

We enjoyed Bonavista, and we walked from the B & B to the attractions.

Where we come from, it's good manners to take off your shoes at the door of a house.

Wow - we enjoyed the friendliness of Maureen and Keith at the Puffins Landing B&B so much - they are so much fun and full of local lore and storytelling (thanks Keith). We had our 21 year old Granddaughter and her boyfriend with us who wanted to see everything "Newfoundland" - well, Keith took us to a breathtaking hiking location and with the combination of the rugged seacoast, the winds, the tundra, the "feeling" of awesomeness was a memory in itself. Our rooms were very clean and the food was delicious. Nothing but good things to say about our two-night stay at the B&B. It was quite central to a lot of other attractions and walking distance to local stores and gift shops. Thanks Keith and Maureen
