About the property

6 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath. Extremely private yard and patio for small gatherings.

** Please Note: This property has no vacancy through April 2019. Please contact us directly for wait-listing in the event an opening occurs **

Windrose is a beautifully renovated home, built in 1830, packed with character while offering all of the modern conveniences you’d love to have in a home. The main house sleeps 12 in 6 spacious bedrooms and 4.5 baths. The Master suite has a 4-piece en suite bath. Two living rooms, a study and charming sun room allow plenty of spaces for families to gather while also allowing for some quiet time. The beautiful dining room seats 12 with extra seating at the nearby kitchen island. The gorgeous five burner gas range along with double sinks and two available refrigerators make the frenzy of large-group cooking almost a fun experience.

The grounds are surrounded by 6 foot hedges and mature trees giving you unusually secluded privacy for the location. The large brick patio is well furnished with a grill just steps away from the beautiful yard and boxwood rose garden.

The location is spectacular. Saint Andrews offers plenty of beautiful rental options, but none come close to providing this spacious, private property in the heart of downtown. Instead of driving three or four miles into town and looking for parking on busy summer days, you simply walk out the front door and stroll an easy block to the nearest restaurants, wharf, shopping, pub, whale watch tours, museums and Kingsbrae Garden.

NOTE: The prices shown do not include the additional apartment. The apartment is a gorgeous, private space that is a fantastic addition for the bridal party, senior parents (first floor bedroom) or those with young children needing a quieter space for napping. Rates are $150/nt plus $100 cleaning fee and additional $150 security. The apartment may be rented by a separate party if you choose to not rent.

About Tom O'Connor

This wonderful house has been in our family since the mid 1980's. We visit St Andrews frequently and miss it when we're not there. We love to renovate and with the help of some great local contractors managed to put a shine on this place. There's always more work to do in a 180 year old house, but we're taking a breather for a while and are happy to share it with others.

Tom O'Connor purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

St Andrews is a pretty unique place with some special homes. We love ours because it's spacious, bright and in the middle of everything. Architectural character throughout, mixed with modern touches to make for an easy, comfortable trip. There's something great about hitting the grocery store at the beginning of the trip and just setting up camp for a week in this house.

It's all on foot after the first couple hours. For us, that emphasizes that we're away from our normal routines. No cars, no trains, no planes. Just some good cooking in the beautiful kitchen, kicking back on the patio or taking in the town. It's hard to leave, really. The drive home is just an opportunity to plan the next trip.

Outstanding home, well furnished and equipped; great location. Surpassed all expectations.

  • 5 of 5

This home allowed our entire family to live together under one roof while still able to maintain some quiet time and privacy. The large dining room table easily accommodated our large family meals and get togethers. The kitchen was equipped with everything one would want to prepare meals. The morning sun filled the living room where we enjoyed the first coffee of the day. We spent many hours of sun and fun on the outdoor patio - easily able to accommodate our family and a few invited guests. The large backyard and garden space provided room for the young boys to play. The owners provided a number of items necessary for a baby, including high chair, playpen, jolly jumper, activity centre - don't know how we would have survived without them. The home is centrally located and within walking distance of shopping, Kingsbrae Gardens, Algonquin Hotel, and the wharf. We rented the private suite attached to the house for our extended family - a wonderful space! Overall, this home far surpassed any and all of our expectations. It was bright and cheerful, nicely decorated and furnished and provided all the necessities of home. Tom, the owner of the property, was a pleasure to work with. Although we had no need to contact him with any issues, we knew he was available at all times.

After one week this felt like home and we hated to leave.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Grand home in the heart of town, beautifully decorated, wonderful grounds, 1st Class accommodations. We held our Daughter's wedding at the Algonquin resort, but wanted to stay "off-campus" for several days leading up to the event. It was the perfect home for family & friends.

Gorgeous home in the heart of St. Andrews

  • 5 of 5

Four generations of my family (ages 8 months to 82) stayed at this lovely home in St. Andrews while we were visiting for a family wedding. The property was clean, well maintained and charming. The patio and gardens were as lovely as the house itself which has been thoroughly updated. The pictures do not lie! The location is perfect. Walking distance to stores and restaurants and just down the street from Kingsbrae Gardens and a fantastic playground for little ones. The owners were marvelous. Our group included 4 small children. Before we arrived they outfitted their home with baby gates, high chair and stroller. And, through our whole visit, they were immediately responsive to any inquiry that we had. Fantastic customer service and I would highly recommend this rental to anyone wishing to visit the St. Andrews area.

Our family of 4 plus grandparents had a most relaxing and enjoyable stay in St. Andrews the first week of August. The home is everything it appears in the photos and more! The property was very clean and well maintained. Location is fantastic - very close to stores and restaurants but also to Kingsbrae Garden and a great playground for the kids. The owner is very responsive to any inquiry whether for swimming or restaurant recommendations or to advise on recycling protocols. I would highly recommend. Our children loved all the Maritime décor and the adults were pleased with the very comfortable living and sitting rooms. Although very close to downtown, the home is quiet at night. We enjoyed golfing at the Algonquin, a trip to Minister's Island, the sculpture garden at Kingsbrae, the Huntsman Aquarium and just watching the amazing Fundy tides. Thank you!

A lovely home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home, which lives up to the pictures shared on VRBO. The kitchen is great to work in, which we did each night. The bedrooms are all amply sized, with plenty of bathrooms for our large group. The home is walking distance to the main street in St Andrews, you can literally park your car for your whole stay if you choose.

The homeowner is likewise friendly, informative and very responsive. Overall a great experience. We've been doing large family get aways for 15 years, and this was certainly the nicest house we've rented, and St Andrews is a great destination spot.
