Welcome to our home away from home in St. John’s. This 2-bedroom house is a little gem right in the heart of downtown, and has many lovely features to make you feel comfortable and well taken care of.
At street level, there is a garage where you can park your car during your stay. Beyond the garage is an entrance to our private fenced-in terrace. Enjoy complete privacy out here, and bring your meal and bottle of wine down to dine in peace.
On the second level there is an open concept kitchen, dining room and living room. The kitchen is fully equipped with new and appealing cookware and dining ware. There is a coffee maker, toaster and microwave, as well as the usual oven and fridge. All you need to bring is your groceries and you will be ready to make a wonderful meal. The kitchen leads out to a little balcony, with 4 chairs and end tables, and a barbecue. The dining room has a table to seat six. After you come home from walking the streets curl up on the comfortable lazy boy pull out couch, or in a library chair and watch TV or a movie. We also have a poker set, chess and some other board games, as well as various books for your enjoyment.
The house has digital tv, a dvd player and some movies, and it also has wireless Internet access for those who like to bring the laptop along. There is free and unlimited long distance anywhere in North America, so you can save on your cell phone charge. The bedrooms are on the first floor, as well as a bathroom with a shower/bathtub. There is a stacked washer and dryer for your convenience outside the bathroom. The first bedroom and the second bedroom have new beds with luxury mattresses and superior linens. You will be very comfortable as you settle in for the night. Throughout the house is original Newfoundland art, such as paintings, antique hook rugs, and one of a kind model dories (fishing boats) made by Otto P. Kelland.
This house has an ideal location for a tourist, or for a longer term executive renter who wants to be able to walk to work . Many shops, galleries, restaurants and the harbour front are only minutes away. George St., the infamous and historic street lined with bars and pubs is literally a 2-minute walk (We know- we’ve timed it!). Many parks, museums, and sites are within easy walking distance such as Quidi Vidi Village, the Battery, Signal Hill, the Rooms. Cape Spear- the most Easterly Point in North America is only a ten minute drive away. Whale watching and iceberg tours start from the Harbour front and nearby Bay Bulls (15 minute drive)....Read more

We were in town to take in a concert at Mile One and we couldn't have asked for a closer mord beautiful home for our home away from home. There were 4 sisters and an adult daughter. We were pleasantly surprised by your home. Definitely been recommended since our stay and next time in St. John's we are looking to re-visit your amazing home.

Just wanted to send a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the stay at 79 Casey street. We will happily recommend it to anyone going that way. The kids walked in and were thrilled - after 8 days of nomadic and communal living, it was fabulous to be able to spread out a bit ... and do laundry. It was absolutely lovely, comfortable and convenient.
The trip in general was fantastic (partly b/c of the spectacular weather). St. John's was great. We did try a couple of really good places that I would recommend to your future guests who are tired of deep-fried everything: Rocket Food on Water for lunches (cod cakes are to die for and great soups and salads) and Get Stuffed at 170 (?) Duckworth was super good (Fish stew with a pernod sauce was super).
The walk around Signal Hill - beautiful 2-3hr trek.
Trip into Quidi Vidi - well worth it. Would like to do the walking tour there. Next time...
Bell Island - really good fish and chips at Dick's and the Mine #2 tour was really worth it. The ferry was $12 there and back for the 4 of us (cheap!)
Haunted Walk (Sunday) was good fun and worth it. Not only do you hear some good stories, you get to go down lanes and alleys you would never know were there.
Loved Newfoundland and still missing it 1 week later.
