We stayed at Torbay Cottage for 8 days, and wished we had booked longer. The house is fully renovated, clean and comfortable. It is over 100 years old, so some beams on the main floor are only 6' high. I'm over 6' tall, and it wasn't much of a problem.
From the lovely rear deck we watched whales in the bay, and never tired of the ever changing ocean view. Built on a small plateau the house offers spectacular unobstructed views of Torbay, Torbay beach, and the surrounding landscape. It is so peaceful all you can hear are the waves on Torbay beach, and a church bell on Sunday morning. It's hard to believe you are less than 10 minutes from St. John's.
The pictures on the website are pretty, but the live view will blow you away.
If you want to stay near St. John's, then don't pass up the opportunity to stay here.
We will be back for sure!

Amazing place to stay in Newfoundland. Nothing beats waking up (and going to bed) with a view like that! Cab rides down to George street add up quick (35-40$ depending on driver) but it was perfect with our rental car! Paul and Nancy are awesome, ensuring everything was going smooth during our time in their home- always a phone call away if needed! I will definitely rent this place again and have already recommended it to family and friends! It's beautiful both inside and out
