“A highlight of our honeymoon”

We had a wonderful 3-night stay at the Ocean View Retreat at the end of our honeymoon, and three days just wasn't enough - we hope to be back soon! The property is amazing, surely one of the best views in Twillingate where you can wake up in the morning to see across the town and water. Also a 2 minute walk from the house takes you to a viewpoint where you can see across the island and ocean. The property is incredibly well equipped, with everything we needed. There were even including board games and candles for the impromptu blackout that Twillingate suffered on one of the evenings we were there (which made for a very romantic evening), and the owner even gave us a ring to give us an update on the blackout, check that we were okay, and how to find the candles. Would definitely recommend.

“Had a great stay, perfect location”

This property is in a perfect location in the centre of town. It is perched on a lookout that gives a view of the ocean from inside and out on the deck. Two bedrooms and one full bathroom perfect for two couples or a family of four. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need except a dishwasher. There are a selection of DVD, board games and books to pass the time on a rainy day. The place was immaculately clean well decorated.

This place books up early so be sure to grab it if it is available. We will return to this cottage on our next trip

This was the most beautiful location. My 90 yr old mother and I vacationed here for one week. The house is equipped with the utmost of conveniences. We wanted for nothing. The town was close and accommodating and the people were very friendly. Would highly recommend renting this property.
