“Amazing location and beautiful home!”
I can't think of anything I could possibly add or change to make this a more perfect place to stay. The cottage accommodated my family of four with room to spare. Our stay here truly felt as if we were coming home each day after exploring Twillingate and surrounding areas. The owners have thought of what guests will need before you even need it. The kitchen was well appointed and we were able to cook meals taking advantage of the local seafood available. The laundry was extremely helpful. And what a view! We sat in the mornings and evenings looking through binoculars at the ocean trying to find whales. The books, games, musical instruments (can I mention how much my children loved playing the ugly stick?), and television were added bonuses. We hope to visit Newfoundland again someday and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
The Ocean View Retreat is not just a beautiful place to stay, it is an experience!The panoramic views from every window are breathtaking. Hiking trails to the cliffs overlooking the sea are virtually at your doorstep. The cottage has been so tastefully decorated and fully equipped. Minutes away are restaurants, local entertainment, great whale watching and fishing with Skipper Jim Boat Tours are all amazing. This is certainly a 10 out of 10 vacation! Thank you Cathy!
“Top top top !”
Hello Cathy, Safe and well back home, we would like to tell you how pleased we were with the cottage. This was the best cottage we have had so far : everything needed available and in perfect state. Tastefully decorated! The weather was beautiful and so was the view. We spent interesting days in Twillingate and surroundings (Fogo Island, Durrell with walk, Little Harbour, Long Point Lightbouse with walk ...). Enjoyed the Split Peas and ada's back sessions and had good meals at the anchor Inn. Luckily we went to Fogo on Friday as we spoke to people who wanted to return on Saturday but were held on Fogo till the next Tuesday as the boat had to be repaired! Icebergs only at a distance of about 20 miles. So we mist them. But, no problem, sooner or later we will return as this vacation has been successful from the beginning till the end. So much more to see and to do... Thank you once again for sharing this experience with us and hopefully till later!
The Ocean View Retreat was everything the owners said it was and then some. Clean, well maintained and ideally located it was a wonderful place to start our vacation at.
“One of our nicest accomadations”
We arrived at Twillingate on a cold and windy June day to be happily surprised to find such a charming cottage to stay in. The view from the cottage was awe inspiring with a 360 view of the ocean and surrounding area. With a welcoming fresh loaf of bread and squares and a cosy space to relax in, it was a great spot to take in the view and kick back.It has a nice side deck from which to watch the ever changing seas and look for wild life helped by a telescope from which to admire the night skies. It was a great place to visit even in the worst spring they'd had in years and I hope to return to enjoy it in nice weather. I'd highly recommend it to any travellor
“Our Stay at the Ocean View Retreat”
We were a group of 2 couples, and can honestly say this was the best stay of any in our month long trip in June/July 2011. The accommodation was second to none, the view was spectacular, and your hospitality was excellent! The town of Twillingate is very charming with lots of good food and interesting places to visit - all within a few minutes drive! We all agreed that if we return to Newfoundland that we will definitely make the Ocean View Retreat our first priority! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! The Heron and McNichol gang.
“Simply Heaven on Earth.”
The home had every amenity you could imagine. Top of the line kitchen and the most comfortable beds. So clean and inviting. You feel at home the minute you enter the premises. There are many places to eat and the people are very friendly. Even though the weather was cold and wet the scenery was magnificent and hiking was a great passtime. I can't wait to come back home again to The Ocean View Retreat in Twillingate. It is food for the soul.
“The Perfect Retreat!”
This was our first time staying at the Ocean View Retreat but it will not be our last! As soon as we arrived at the property, we relaxed. The cottage is private and the location can not be beat. The personal touches do not go unnoticed- local artifacts catch your interest and hand knit slippers are waiting to keep your toes toasty. Although the property has all the modern conveniences, including Wifi, we found ourselves sitting quietly enjoying the view. We recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation rental. We will be planning a longer stay next time!
No surprises here. The Ocean View Retreat was at least as good as the raving reviews we'd read about the place and looked just like the pictures on the website depicted. Its a great place to stay either as a couple or as a family. The next time we venture to Twillingate we'll definitely be checking into the Ocean View Retreat.
We can't recommend it enough! Great location, wonderful views, & comfortable beds.
