Photos and Description of the Elliston vacation house rental

2 bed room, 1 bath, kitchen, small living room with pull out couch, sleeps 5

This traditional Salt Box house has been 90% renovated and is equipped with everything you’ll need. Antique traditional Salt Box homes were built with lower ceilings for heat efficiency and average height. I left the original height for the up stairs which is about 5' - 11' high, tradition and heritage is kept in this modest home. This home sleeps 5 people comfortably with two bedrooms, small living room with pull out sofa, a large kitchen, bathroom and laundry room. I learned that the laundry machines are not working but will have them repaired when there are no guests expected. There is limited ocean view from the kitchen and master bedroom windows. Puffins can be seen up close from the nearby coastal cliffs.

Elliston is a friendly, small, out-port village that offers sea side hiking, deep sea fishing, whale watching, a fine traditional Newfoundland restaurant, an informative Visitors Center, and more. The main town of Bonavista, is about five kilometers away and boasts plentiful shopping, museums, pubs and a major harbor. The peninsula reaches out to the 'Cape' which has a spectacular view of high cliffs and endless ocean seascape. Bonavista is the historic site where John Cabot landed in the early 1300's.

In summary, The Catalina Road house is a modest rustic residence - you don't need to worry about bringing anything except your groceries! I hope you will enjoy a traditional Newfoundland experience!
