Blue House and Blue House Cottage occupy the far southeastern edge of the North American Continent on the Southern Shore of the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland. This beautiful two and a half acre seaside property is located in Bauline East perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean overlooking the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve. Blue House Cottage, serene with its soaring cathedral ceiling is equipped with a full bath, double bed, sitting area and a cedar deck with ocean view. The adjacent 1800 square foot main house is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home, gently updated to keep true to its original saltbox structure. The lovely main floor great-room is the focal point of the home’s design with exposed pine beams, a wood-burning stove, and the original wooden staircase leading to the second floor. The master bedroom is equipped with a 4-piece bath, majestic cathedral ceilings, pine clad walls, and a spacious cedar deck overlooking the garden, gazebo, greenhouse and sea. A new 2000 sq.ft. Library which includes office internet, media centre and large comfy furniture was added in 2009.The home possesses a typical two-storey, centre hall-plan with an ideal view of the garden and shoreline sitting on original wooden foundation posts that pre-date the great tidal wave of 1929.

Perfect Avalon coastline location near Witless Bay islands convenient to St. John's and south eastern attractions. Home is beautifully decorated with artwork from Newfounland and owner's work. This rental has a rich quality and a spacious feel. Rental is clean and welcoming. One can sit and watch the whales playing in the bay from the garden deck. We saw 2 icebergs go by! Fish truck 10 minutes down the road to buy fresh catch for dinner. Highly recommended.
