“Perfection”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Two friends and I traveled to St. John's to participate in the East Coast Trail Ultra at the end of October. The location was perfect allowing us to walk everywhere we needed to go - namely downtown and Quidi Vidi.. It was a $20 cab ride from the airport.

The home itself was also perfect. Each of us had our own room and never any washroom contention given there were three of them! The home is beautifully renovated inside. I assume it is recent because everything looks fresh. You can see the care given the detail in the molding. Everything was impeccably clean. Towels were plentiful. Beds and sheets comfy. TP and Kleenex were provided as was a selection of tea - although this could have been from past guests. :-)

The weather was a little cool so we didn't have an opportunity to use a very inviting back yard sitting and eating area with BBQ.

I have no hesitation in recommending the home to anyone. Our host Desiree was most helpful and responsive including damage deposit refund. Rice House will be first on my list should I go back with friends or my family in the future. I hope to do just that. I love Newfoundland!

P.S. i don't hand out top/"Great" ratings.

“Very comfortable house near everything in St. John's”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My daughter and her husband, and my husband and myself rented this lovely house for 4 nights in June. We cook, so if was great to have a kitchen with everything in it, including lots of food that we could use. The second floor bedroom was a double, with not much room besides the bed; my daughter had a queen bed on the third floor, which they liked very much.
Desiree was a wonderful hostess, even though we didn't meet in person.

“Awesome accommodation, wonderful stay”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My boyfriend and I stayed here after Christmas just to spend some time in gorgeous downtown St. John's. We loved the convenience of location; a short downhill walk to Water or Duckworth Street, close to supermarkets, small local groceries and corner stores, and even the health food store are all within short walking distance. We also loved that the kitchen was stocked with all the tools needed to make any sort of meal...lots of spatulas, pots and pans, good knives, etc. The house itself is a beautiful three floor St. John's townhouse with tasteful art and decor. Comfy as well as spacious. A lot of local maps and tourism info are also provided by the host. Loved this spot and would definitely stay again!
