Situated on the ocean's-edge, this pretty "one bedroom apartment" offers panoramic views from its private deck that are second to none on the Avalon. A minimum of a 2 day stay is required - though you will want to stay much longer. The trails of the East Coast Trail are at the front door; the whales - when in season are right off the deck...the birds..they are there in the millions; Mistaken Point is an hour up the road; Ferryland is a 30 minute drive; Bay Bulls is just 15 minutes away.
One of three self-catering vacation rentals situated in the Whale Watcher House, on the ocean's edge just south of St. John's.
There is no place on the Avalon Peninsula quite like the Whale Watcher House! A former 7 bedroom, 8-bathroom B&B, situated right on the ocean’s edge, the Whale Watcher House has been extensively renovated and updated. No longer a B&B, the large bungalow now hosts the owner’s quarters, as well as offering three vacation rental options. The three options and their respective descriptions are outlined below.
Bay Bulls Apartment: a one bedroom apartment with full kitchen, living room/dining area, and a deck overlooking the ocean; this unit may be combined with a second bedroom with full washroom . You may add this second bedroom and its full bathroom by booking the Ferryland Studio Apartment, as well.
This private, one bedroom apartment features a combined living room, kitchen and dining area; a generous bedroom with queen bed as well as a full bathroom with large, walk in shower; a deck off the living area which is spacious and offers spectacular views of the ocean and the islands in the Reserve; and a fully equipped kitchen with four major appliances. A drop-leaf table provides dining seating for 2-4 persons. You may add the second bedroom and its full bathroom by booking the Ferryland Studio Apartment as well. Or you can let us do it - and inquire at the time of booking.

Elaine, the owner, (i.e. me!) lives on the property and is available for information, should you require it.
Jerry, the boat builder, former whale boat operator, and builder of the Whale Watcher House, lives next door with Amanda, his partner, and the friendliest of Black Labs – Maggie. The latter will welcome you home at the end of every day with hopes of a dog biscuit or some such leftover shining in her eyes. Half the time there is a new litter in the barn! Or a boat being built; or a story being told.

Parking is adjacent to each unit for convenient access. I realize this makes us sound like a “motel” - I hasten to add that we could not be any less like a motel! The apartments and studio are stylish, a little bit urban, meticulous in their presentation, and comfy to occupy. They are insulated optimally for sound, and in truth, after 20 years in the tourism accommodation business, I run a tight ship! Entry to each unit is discreet, via a coded lock thus allowing flexible check in and check out convenience. There are no obstacles, no real stairs, and no obvious barriers to occupancy. The units, however, are not wheelchair accessible.
There is at the side of the property, a communal sitting area for those who would like to convene at the end of a day, BBQ their dinner and share their stories. It does not show yet on the photos as it is not yet completed! Updates to follow.
There is a clothesline and the promise of a sea breeze to dry out your hiking things should you wish to avail of it. Otherwise hooks abound to dry your things inside. We may be able to do a load of laundry for you in the owner’s quarters.
Though i have indicated i am pet friendly - it is still necessary to let me know about your wee beastie(s). i will, in the end, reserve judgement. I hope you understand this as i have to strive to find a balance between family holidays and pending guest allergies.
