About this listing

Shaun Majumder invites you to come 'Ome and experience the scenic beauty of Burlington, Green Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador. Located in Iceberg Alley on the north shore of "The Rock," 'Ome is the perfect way to experience stunning rural NL.

The space

This cube by the sea is the perfect private getaway for any couple or small family who wants to do exactly that; Get away.

Perched on the edge of a rocky point facing south, this minimalistic eco-pod has all the comforts you need. Beautiful hardwood floors, tongue & groove pine walls, vaulted ceilings, tall sliding glass doors on three sides taking in the spectacular sunsets and ocean views. Literally meters from the ocean, this location could not be any better.

Downstairs, enjoy the crackling wood stove while looking out at the ocean. Prepare meals on the propane cook top. Sit out on the huge wrap around deck with cascading stairs on all sides. You'll want to spend as much time outside as you do inside.

This off the grid eco pod uses the Eco-Temp, tankless hot water system for both shower and sink. And for bathrooms we use the environmentally responsible SunMar Centrex 3000 High Capacity Compost Flush toilet.

The pod now runs on solar energy as our 'Ome Luxury Tents do.

This pod embraces simple, elegant design providing the comfort and amenity you need, while enticing you to get out and explore spectacular rural Newfoundland!

Guest access

****The POD is located in a somewhat remote location and requires some walking on UNEVEN GROUND and CURRENTLY IS NOT WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE. Some moderate "hiking" is required. It's a short walk on an newly cut trail to get down to the POD, but every step will be worth it! Wheeled luggage is not advisable.

Other things to note

His goal is to bring tourism to his 'Ome-town of Burlington, NL. and the surrounding area by creating social businesses which will fuel a sustainable micro economy for the region. All revenue generated goes back into the project and the community. The overall community project includes luxury camping, cabins, and a central lodge. Plus the construction of a community greenhouse, “Hummock View Greens” and a summer festival called The Gathering -

We stayed 2 nights in the Puffin tent and 1 night in the Pod during our stay in Burlington. Sam was a wonderful host and gave us all the information we needed. The tent was "glammed" out with homemade quilts and wildflowers - it was so cute. The bed was very comfortable and we stayed warm with our kerosene heater. We used the comfort station down the road for showers one night. It was very clean and convenient. The Pod was a short hike from the road and offered a few more amenities with a kitchen and bathroom. It had gorgeous views and was a great way to end our trip to Newfoundland. The area is really "off the beaten track," but the locals are so friendly and the area is beautiful!

Our staying in the Pod was amazing. We had the luck to saw an Iceberg just in the front of the house. If you are looking for a hidden gem in Newfoundland, don't hesitate 1 second and drive to this place.

Living"off the grid" for a couple of days was easy, given the beauty of the views. A wonderful stay!

Thank you so much for your interest in visiting my 'Ome town of Burlington Newfoundland.

For those of you who haven't seen our documentary series "Majumder Manor" on W Network in Canada, let me give you some background on what it is we are doing and how 'Ome is connect.

You see, I've always had love for Newfoundland and more specifically Burlington on the Baie Verte Peninsula. Despite moving away as a young teenager, I've always felt a deep love for the place and returned 'Ome often. And every chance I'd get, I would bring friends or family to experience the remote rugged beauty of the place.

Of course we'd always find places for people to stay, but without any hotels, Inn's or BnB's in the immediate area, space was always a problem. So after purchasing some land during a visit back 'Ome one summer, I knew I had to build places for people to stay. And not only that, but I also realized that with a lot of people moving away to places like Alberta for work, and small towns all over the island shrinking, I wanted to create a reason for the people who already live there to stay. To stay in the place they've always called 'Ome.

And so this is what we are doing...

'Ome Luxury Tents are the initial steps towards our long term goal of creating a sustainable micro economy for the towns of Burlington, Middle Arm, and Smith's Harbour through tourism. First we are focusing on the 'Ome Luxury Tents, then moving to our 'Ome Pods- cabin like structures remotely place throughout the area, and eventually a central lodge with a restaurant. All places for you to call 'Ome when you visit.

And we're doing it as a social enterprise with all of the revenues and profits generated to be repurposed through the company back into the community in one way or another. The money you spend while 'Ome, goes back into the town through the social business. So not only do you get to have a unique cultural travel experience by visiting Burlington through our 'Ome project, but your dollars are going towards supporting a larger community initiative. Its a win win for everyone!

And of course as an actor/writer/comedian I had to create a TV show to document the entire process which is how "Majumder Manor" was born. Along with my partners Rob and Peter Blackie at "Take The Shot" productions, we are currently producing our second season of MM which will air July 2014 on the W Network. Its an honest, hilarious, refreshing look at the trials and tribulations of creating our social enterprise in rural NL.

Again thank you for visiting! I hope you continue to do so as this project will continue to grow over the years to come thanks to you.

Thanks and we will see you in Burlington, Middle Arm and Smith's Harbour!
