Photos and Description of the Downtown vacation house rental

Coastal House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

This coastal home on St. John's harbour is the most easterly guest house in North America.

Feb 2016, Conde Nast Traveler called the Outer Battery Village one of "...the Most Beautiful Places in Canada...". They went on to say "...Sunny yellow, cherry red, turquoise blue—St. Johns’ pop-art-colored houses, collectively known as Jellybean Row, look especially awe-inspiring clustered in the cliffs of this atmosphere-drenched coastal neighborhood just outside downtown..."

Hare's Ears Cottage shares the property line with Signal Hill National Park and has door-step access to the Signal Hill hiking and walking trails along with close access to the Grand Concourse urban trail system. Nestled in the cliffs of the popular Outer Battery Village, the house is just 30 feet from the ocean, 5 minutes from downtown by car and 10 minutes by foot. It has a deck with a Weber gas bbq, panoramic views of the harbour & city skyline, and a southern exposure. Bald Eagles nest near the property.

This is the best location in the city.

The 3 bedroom house, convertible to 2 bedroom, has a ground floor studio with separate entrance including bath and kitchen. Great layout for the multi-generational travellers.
