About the Owner

My husband and I grew up on Bell Island. We moved to Ontario at an early age. We bought this house with the intention of retiring here one day. We enjoy fishing and just sitting and listening to the ocean.

Great House, close to everything but far away!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, well maintained, all the amenities you'll need. Our family stayed in this house for 2 weeks, I would say it's close to perfect! We cooked a lot of our own meals instead of eating out, saved a small fortune. Kitchen is well stocked and ready. You would not want to stay here without a car but the large shopping and nightlife is a short drive away. If you're inclined to check out the nightlife on George Street, the cab ride home is only $35. A short drive from the airport and easy to find. Although it may be rare, we did watch whales in the bay while sitting on the deck! The house is as described, very nice. The kitchen, dining area, bathroom and living room are all ample in size, the bedrooms are small but adequate. I have no problem recommending this property to anyone looking for a nice place to stay while visiting St. John's area. Our friends and family that chose to stay in hotels at the same time were so jealous!

Hip Ditch House

The best location in St. John's. walking distance to everything and the Signal Hill Trail at your back door.

The view is outstanding, the house very clean and comfortable.

Highly recommended.

Location

From the Owner

This house is fully equipped with everything you will need for your vacation. It is very private and is located on a dead end street. There is a wonderful view of the ocean from every room in the house. People say they feel like they are on a boat because of all the windows that front the ocean. There is a second deck with a panoramic view of the Bay.

Amenities

From the Owner

This house was built in three sections and we painted it three different colors to match the jelly bean houses in St. Johns. We also love the mountains in the back of our house where you can climb up and pick your own blueberries, or just enjoy the view.
