Soak in the exquisite scenery, local hospitality and fresh salty air as you explore extraordinary Newfoundland. Feel the ease, comfort and joy of a true getaway. 'Coastal Calm' awaits at The Starfish!

The space
The Starfish comprises the main and upper level of a newly-built, traditional 'Biscuit Box' home, facing the Atlantic Ocean. Built on family land, and according to ancient principles of Classical Feng Shui, The Starfish is a peaceful and soothing haven for all who stay.

The Starfish is a bright and cheerful holiday home that offers refined coastal charm and casual elegance. Unique and wonderful works of local artisans, craftsmen and authors can be found throughout. Although the home is beautifully decorated, it is completely family-friendly with durable finishes and furnishings.

The Starfish is a special spot that is suitable as:

~ a comfortable, convenient home for families with babies, toddlers and school-age children (holidays, visits, tournaments, weddings, family reunions, etc.)
~ A gathering place for multiple and/or multi-generational families.
~ A gorgeous gathering place for friends and family (girls' night out, stay-cation, spa day)
~ an authentic experience for travellers who wish to soak in the local charm.
~ a gorgeous destination for adventurers (T'Railway, East Coast Trail, Ocean Quest Adventures, The Manuel's River Experience, Topsail Mountain)
~ a home away from home for 'Out-of-Towners' (to shop, attend events and appointments, etc.)
~ an inspirational space for artists and creators
~ a restful environment for healing and recovery (new Mom's day away, respite after medical care)
~ a private retreat for couples
~ a soulful sanctuary for healers and caregivers
~ a quiet, nurturing place to restore wellness and well-being

The Starfish is beautifully situated. Delight in the exquisite scenery all year round - the Islands, the rugged shoreline, the sparkling sunset, the fishing boats, the astonishing Icebergs, the playful whales, the silly seabirds, and the wide sky.

Take a meandering stroll, comb the coastline for seashells, pick berries, do yoga alongside the ocean, meditate on the many vistas. Walk or bike the coastal T'Railway (connects to the famous East Coast Trail), chat with the friendly and active locals. Do what comes naturally. Feel an intoxicating ease and enveloping peace.

It is said that a Starfish can regenerate fully, as long as it has its center. Come. Connect to your soul. Let your surroundings soothe you. Make you whole...
