Live and feel like a local, not a visitor! You'll feel like your living around the bay but with the convenience of knowing everything is right at your finger tips. It's a minute walk to the oceanside cliffs & local walking trails-you may see a iceberg or whale, take your kids to catch live Capelin or go shopping. Relax on the private patio while you enjoy cooking a bbq, or take a 15 minute drive to downtown St. John's to explore. The possibilities are endless on this little island of ours.

The space

This beautiful 2 story home is nestled away on a old family plot of land in the small town of Torbay, which is located just on the outskirts of St. Johns. Enjoy the fresh salt air and the friendly quiet small town feel while here with the convenience of knowing Starbucks, Tim Hortons, Winners, Walmart, Costco and other major shopping amenities are only a 5 minutes drive away if you need them. This 2 story home is ground level accessible so the only stairs are inside the home. The kitchen, dining room and living room are on the main floor and the main floor conveniently includes a half bathroom and laundry room as well. Each bedroom has a firm queen sized bed with pillow top mattress for extra comfort. Appliances include fridge with water filter and ice cube dispenser, double oven stove, dishwasher, front loading washer and dryer, stand up deep freezer, kettle, toaster, panini press/ grill and actifry. There is a bbq and patio furniture for the back deck in the summer and a snow blower for those cold winter months. Basic food condiments are provided along with paper towels, toilet paper, sheets and towels, iron, iron board, hair dryer and hair straightener. Soaps and shampoos are not provided on a regular basis for allergy purposes but there are some remaining in the home to be used if needed. If you require anything else to make your stay more enjoyable please let me know in advanced and I'll try my best to accommodate any request that I can.

I've listed the home as infant and kid friendly but please be aware there isn't a child gate for the stairs and there isn't a fence around the property, so babies and smaller children will need to be supervised at all times depending on your child. The house is also suitable for small to medium sized dogs that are outdoors trained - it is not be suitable for dogs that are pad trained. No cats are allowed in the home at any time. Any other pets would need to be discussed on a case by case basis. This home is on a private driveway shared with 2 other families so due to the close proximity and out of respect for them, this home is not to be used as a party house and do not park on the grass. There is on street parking available if extra parking is needed. You are welcome to have close friends and family over for meals, bbq's and Christmas dinners but please keep it to respectful hours and small gatherings. You are responsible for replacing anything you may break while in the home. (Glass, artwork, appliances, furniture, etc.) If something is broken please advise me so I can get it fixed or replaced for you right away. Smoking is not allowed within my home but there is a private front patio and a private back patio for anyone who does smoke. No illegal downloading is allowed on the wifi.

This a wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable and fully equipped except there was no teapot and no coffee maker. It is easy to get to all points of interest. It exceeded all our expectations.

Comfy beds, beautiful location, and super friendly neighbours!! I didn't want to leave!!! We will stay again....for longer next time! Thanks for everything Terri, you're truly the best!

We were a group of 4 adults and 2 teenagers visiting for the weekend. Terri's house was in the perfect match, clean and with plenty of room. Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. Short drive to the Stavanger Dr shopping area. Communication with Terri clear and prompt. Would definitely stay again!

Terri's home is located close to the picturesque shorline of the St John's area of NL but in the quiet area of Torbay. Her home is both modern and immaculate. We were able to get to all of our east coast intended destinations quite easily.

Terri User Profile

Born and raised in Newfoundland, I lived in Alberta for 11 years and then returned home to the Rock in 2014. I am a single dog mom. I love to read ebooks and always have my tablet nearby. I've only traveled within Canada and the USA. I did see 13 states when I drove across the country and got to see some really beautiful places but I didn't get to enjoy the trip being alone on my own. I love the smell of the fresh ocean air, the water calms my soul. This year has been great for icebergs, and the whales are already arriving. I love a good home cooked meal and you won't starve anywhere you eat around here. I love road trips with friends. I don't do so well on planes or boats so that might be why my traveling hasn't carried me very far yet but one day that will change. I like to treat everyone like family or a long lost friend. When you stay at my home I'll try to be as accommodating and helpful as possible so you get a relaxed and enjoyable experience from your vacation. I always want people to love Newfoundland as much as I do and I hope you keep coming back for more each year.
