Why Gerald and Gail Squires chose Holyrood

Bennett's Road is a peaceful riverside road with only two houses on it; the first house is where we live and work as artists The one we are offering for rent is at the end of the road with an expansive stretch of treed land lying behind it that reaches down to the cross country walking trail and Holyrood Harbour.

We had an excellent experience at this property and I highly recommend it. Gail was easy to work with and the booking process was smooth. The house was well stocked so it required very little purchasing of supplies outside of our main meals. It was quiet and on a lovely property with amenities nearby. There was a beautiful boardwalk with great views just 10 mins away from the property. We had 2 1-year olds with us so we were happy to be in a quiet area. Beware: there are two Bennett's Roads outside of St. John's so be sure to pick the one specifically in Holyrood! Would definitely recommend this property!

Perfect for families.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four stayed at this property in August for 11 days. My husband is from Foxtrap but this year we wanted space of our own so decided to rent this house. It was wonderful! There was plenty of space for our family and having two bathrooms was fantastic! Although not a new house, there have been plenty of updates and we appreciated the nice kitchen appliances. We hosted a birthday supper with 13 adults and 6 kids and everyone raved about the beautiful view and quiet location. All the kids played in the yard, explored the falls, played on the swings and had the finished basement to just hang out. We enjoyed the deck and lights shining on the water at night. Having laundry onsite was great as well. Gail was wonderful and so helpful when we asked if she had a radio. One was brought over for our use and it was a clock radio/alarm. Gail is such a friendly, lovely lady! We would definitely stay again!!

A hidden Jewell.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Holyrood property. This location suited our purpose as we were attending an important function further up Conception Bay. It was also close enough to do some daytime site seeing in St. John's. The property is large and we enjoyed the view of Conception Bay and the beautiful creek that runs through nearby. The house is back enough from the highway and so it was quiet. Restaurants, gas station and grocery stores are all close by. The owners were very friendly and even greeted us on our arrival and checked up occasionally during the week to make sure we were comfortable. The rooms are modern and clean. I would highly recommend this place.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Loved the small falls, but couldn't locate two others on the property. The view of the bay was an added pleasure. The house is located on a quiet and very private property. It was close to the highway we needed on our daily jaunts. The restaurants were within walking distance if you choose to walk. There was a washer and dryer so no searching for the laundromat. We definitely recommend a stay here . The only thing missing was an alarm clock in the bedrooms.

Time in Holyrood

  • 5 of 5

My business takes me to many places around the world. When a recent project I had took me to Holyrood I was looking for accommodations for an extended period of time. I was able to find a single family home through VRBO that was exactly what I was looking for. The property is situated with a nice view of Conception Bay from the back of the house and a wonderful creek and waterfall in the front yard. The house is very nicely appointed and was also in close proximity to the project. The house is within walking distance of the harbor and there is a walking trail in the back of the property for those who enjoy the outdoors. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who enjoys quiet, privacy and nice views. Besides the house meeting all my needs the owners were very warm, open and generous with their hospitality. They were a big reason that I enjoyed my stay so much. They were able to help me become familiar with the area and made me feel at home during my time in Holyrood. If you are looking for short term or extended stay, you should consider this house.
