About Betty McMahon

Both my parents are from Newfoundland. Growing up we waited anxiously for our bi-yearly car trips from Ontario to visit family back home. Being one of eight sisters was a challange, but we always managed. We would cram into our Ford Meteor and make that three day drive, singing sunday school songs and trying desperately to syncronize our bladders, so as not to make too many stops!, My love for the island continues to grow and I'm finally able to tell you that I've achieved my goal to purchase my own 'piece of the rock'. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Betty McMahon purchased this house in 2011

Why Betty McMahon chose Pouch Cove

Only 20 minutes to the airport and 30 minutes to St.John's, this location is ideal. The East Coast Trail runs right behind the house and the ocean views are just incredible. Everything I've ever dreamed of is here at Oceanside Suites!

What makes this house unique

Whale watching, icebergs and the many varieties of sea birds are all just outside your window! I would be hard to find views any better than here!

A quiet out-port town founded in 1611, there is so much history in this community. Still small enough to get that true Newfoundland experience but only minutes to the city life of St. John's.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Newfoundland and Pouch Cove was an excellent location! There were six of us and there was plenty of room. The home was clean and it had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. Our view of the ocean from the back porch was amazing! Great way to see the sunrise and have your morning coffee. We also had the chance to see whales almost every day. The East Coast trail at the back of the house was a great way to see the coast. We were less than 30 minutes from St. John's and were close to some great scenic areas. What a great stay! Thank you Betty!

We really enjoyed our family vacation at this home. It was spotless and lovely. It was a close drive to St.John's and it was nice to relax or hike the trail right in the backyard!

Picture Perfect in Pouch Cove!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oceanside is a beautiful home in picturesque Pouch Cove!! My mothers family is from Pouch Cove, so we have been visiting this community for over 50 years. My brother and I stayed at Oceanside with our families during the July 18-25th Pouch Cove Come Home Days. The weather was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the back deck with the spectacular ocean view and the opportunity to see whales in the distance.

The home was great for entertaining relatives that still live in the community. On several occasions during our stay we entertained and served traditional Newfoundland cuisine consisting of locally caught cod, jigs dinner, and moose steak and sausage.

The home was immaculate and more than adequately met our needs.

Oceanside is perfect for those seeking a visit to Newfoundland and the opportunity to experience the feel of a small community in combination with the close proximity to St. John's. For those how like to hike, the East Coast Trail is a wonderful way to see the coast line. Although challenging, the hike from Pouch Cove to Cape Francis is highly recommended!!

Fantastic Views, Quiet and lovely

  • 5 of 5

Three of us spent one week at Betty's home. We enjoyed Pouch Cove for the beauty of the views, the quiet neighbors, and the ease of driving around the peninsula. Everything in the house worked great, including the fast WiFi. The home was immaculate. We had 2 bedrooms and baths, one up, one on the main floor. Beds were very comfy and the water pressure in the bathrooms was great. The kitchen was well equipped with all the pots and gadgets needed to cook, we did cook in each night. We did have a local boil order for water 5 out of the 7 days, but we worked that out OK. We always used bottled water for drinking. The living and dining areas were comfortable with great views, and we loved sitting out on the deck in the evening with the waves crashing and gulls flying about and watching the cutest pony living on the hill next door. We went to the Saturday farmers market and bought all the veggies we needed for the week. The drive into St. John's was just under half an hour. About the same for the airport. There are 2 big supermarkets between St. John's and Pouch Cove, very convenient. We enjoyed day trips all over the peninsula, navigation is pretty easy. All in all, we were very happy for our week at this quiet, comfortable home.

Owner's Response: So happy that you enjoyed your time at Oceanside. Sorry about the boil order on the water. It's happened a couple of times. The township is working on a new water system, so hopefully we won't be getting those notices anymore. Come back again sometime! Betty

Pouch Cove Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Oceanside Suites was everything we expected and much more. The home was cozy and nicely decorated with beautiful art work from local artists. The views from the many windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean were stunning. The 3 beds were all very comfortable and the house had everything we needed to enjoy our time in Pouch Cove. We even made use of the fireplace since it was quite cold this July. There was plenty of room in the house for all 6 of us (2 adults, 2 seniors and 2 youths). It was a short drive to St. John's where we made daily trips and enjoyed many great attractions during our week-long stay. Betty was a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Sorry about the cool weather, some things are beyond my control. LOL But glad you made use of the cozy fireplace. Doesn't get much better than that living room with a fire burning and watching the ocean right outside! Love it! Come back to Oceanside anytime! Betty
