Spent 10 glorious days in this little cottage. Central to all things to see and do in St |Johns. Our hosts were wonderful and we were lucky enough to meet the family and share a few laughs. Will be recommending this rental to family and friends. Thank you for a lovely holiday Diane and Bill Hodge Belleville Ontario

We spent 4 nights at Historic Codner house in Torbay, Nl. The cottage is quaint yet has all the modern amenities . It is well equipped, clean, and spacious and close to shopping and its just a quick trip to St. Johns. We were four adults and we had plenty of room! The beds are soooo comfy and the showers were always hot . The views from the deck and yard are beautiful. If you are there during the July 1 holiday...make sure you stay here! The view of the fireworks sitting at the firepit (from the bay below the cottage) are amazing. Thank you again Paul and Nancy!

I highly recommend the Torbay area and house. This is located within minutes to Costco, Walmart, grocery and other retail locations and with 20 mins to downtown St. John's. This vacation home has everything you could ever ask for and we stayed in for supper and breakfast daily due to the amenities.
Paul is amazing to deal with and we could not have asked for anything more than what was provided. The house was clean and stocked with available resources and views beyond description. I cannot say enough about our vacation and wish we could have extended our stay.

This comfortable upgraded historic home is situated in a quiet area with a great view of the bay. We were very pleased with its' location since it is close to St Johns and all that the City offers, yet while at the home you feel you are a world away.
During our stay there were two icebergs visible in the bay.
From our first communication with the owners Paul and Nancy, we felt we had made the right decision in renting their home. They were very helpful in providing us with information by e-mail and stayed in touch with us as we travelled from the West coast of Nlfd to their home on the East coast.
