About this listing

On the Sea. A wonderful cabin. It is comfortable and private, high cielings, one bedroom, bathroom, and full size sitting/breakfast/kitchen room with an extra bed - sofa. You are 500 feet from the wharf which is the hub of this outport.

The space

In the fotos it is the ORANGE CABIN. If this CABIN is not available for the dates you would like, please look at our COTTAGE, BARN, BUNKY, TIPI and BEACH SHED on AIRBNB. All our properites are listed as East Coast Newfoundland Cottage and Cabin. Thanks.

The cabin comforts are basic, the space wonderful. The surrounding area, absolutely beautiful. We also offer locally sourced food on site at extra cost.

Located on the East Coast Trail, we are at the head of the trail to La Manche Park in Bauline East. From the house it is a 40 minute hike to the swinging bridge where the waterfalls is topped by one of our many swimming holes in the area. The East Coast Trail is 300km of spectacular trails.

We have a pond across the street for swimming, rocky beach for bonfires and kayaking is also near by. There is also a tour boat that leaves from our harbour to view humpback whales while visiting the bird island reserves off the coast.

Two rooms. One bedroom has Queen size bed, the other with sofa/bed that is also the living/dining room with an outside patio. All cotton sheet and down covers. The kitchen includes a dining table and all the amenities including toaster oven, refrigerator, microwave and outdoor shared BBQ with gas or coal (bring if you prefer!). This second room can be converted into a bedroom on request. The bathroom has a hot shower and there is another outdoor shower as well. There is WiFi and a smart TV with NetFlix.

Bauline East is an outport settled about 150 years ago. Derived from the French word "baleine" meaning whale, Bauline East is a fishing village of twelve homes with all the seasonal activity of fishing and crabbing.

This is an ideal space for people who enjoy rustic living, suited for artists or traveling adventurers, loungers (there is hammocks), hikers, whale watchers, bird spotters and music festival goers..

We are 50 minutes south of St. John's, approximately 380 miles north by northwest and 1,000 meters above the sunken Titanic, in a sheltered cove overlooking the Atlantic.

NB: PRICE - If you are worried about the price being reasonable, please don't be, it goes with our idea that people should bring prices down rather than take them up. We could charge more, but we don't, we want to rent at a price which we would want to rent at but with the quality that we would also want. We do not go for this overprice motel mentality.

Guest access

A full cabin with porch. Shared BBQ. The property is more like a compound with four structures. Other than the Main House or Cottage you have the most livable space . Parking is off the street.

Interaction with guests

If we are here we interact or not depending on guests.

Other things to note

The weather is all over the place, I have been in the most miserable weather in Newfoundland with six weeks of bad weather during the summer, but then again while the rest of the world was suffering from cold and misery, Newfoundland was brilliant and beautiful. You never know.

Transport -No public buses from here. Sorry. If you need a ride to town or to the airport, this is your contact:
Clarence Mallory. He runs a shuttle service to and from town, but just once a day. So the story is he picks up from the Southern Shore (our area) around 7:00 am - 8:00 am for arrival around 10:00 am to town, and he picks up in St. John's (4:30 pm) or the airport (before 4:30 pm) for depositing to our house directly. From town it is $15 from the airport $20.00. If these hours do not work then maybe we can accommodate you another way. In the meanwhile here is the man: Clarence Molloy Tel: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

to the cleaners if they can.

MAIN HOUSE:We serve a menu dinner , but we need you to advise us first thing in the morning. We charge $35 / person. The food, vino and company is better than anything on the Shore. We all eat together @ 7:00 pm, but we do not do this everyday and do it only when we have the COTTAGE available to us. Please ask.
You can bring your own vino or beer, if you like.

George and Chabela were so great in getting us there when we were potentially lost. They greeted us with smiles and open arms. They directed us to the points of interest, provided us with whatever hiking boots, mitts, scarves etc. we needed as we were a bit under prepared. The accomodations were clean and cozy. The place itself is right on the ocean with a 200 ft clif behind us. We even enjoyed some fresh blueberries arms distance from our cabin. We were as snug as snug could be and loving it! Great hosts! Genuine and interesting. The facilities were as close to the Newfoundland experience that one could ever enjoy! you can even buy fresh cod at the neighbouring dock and cook it up. There are many points of interest close by and some fun restaurants. This is a great location to have short day trips out to other places and to return to unwind around the camp fire or just relax on the deck. Thank You George and Chabela for welcoming us into your home compound and sharing the Newfoundland experience! ~ Dave and Kate

Fantastic getaway in the cove. Very warm and inviting hosts help make this little gem of a place somewhere we would go back to again and again. Sad to leave and felt like saying goodbye to old friends. The cabin may not be for everyone but if your the adventurous type it has everything you need and more.

We loved our cozy little orange cabin, and George and Chabela were wonderful hosts. Their travel tips, homemade muffins and warm conversation made our stay very special. A super spot for adventurous folks who value being close to nature and meeting interesting people.

George provided timely and thoughtful information to assist us in preparing for our visit. He sent in advance of our visit a detailed information package of food, attractions and highlights visiting in the Avalon Peninsula. The accommodation was clean, the bed wonderful and the location offers convenient access to the many natural attractions of the Witless Bay area. The very reasonable rental rate is attractive, but a visitor should be prepared for a more rustic living experience. It initially took us an evening to settle in, but we did so and enjoyed the quiet and peaceful location, and of course the evening fires.
