North Sea Whale House

Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Coco and Dave invite you to enjoy North Sea Whale House! Fully renovated in 2019, the home is equipped with all new appliances, a master queen bed with full ensuite bath, a second bedroom with queen bed, and a second full bathroom. The living and dining rooms boast large windows facing the ocean. Coco's original artwork adorns the walls.

NSWH is uniquely situated on the sunny side of Bonavista peninsula, steps from the Atlantic ocean and a commercial stage, in the quaint working fishing harbor of Summerville. A 2.5 hour drive from St. John’s, 25 minutes from historic Trinity and scenic Port Rexton; 45 minutes from shopping in Clarenville, and 50 minutes from the Bonavista lighthouse.

Depending on which part of the year you’re visiting, watch breaching humpback, fin, minke and killer whales from the comfort of the front bridge (Newfanese for ‘deck’). Walk down to the fishing stage to meet the local fishermen and see the same tools of the trade, and fish cleaning and salting techniques Newfoundland fishermen have been incorporating for 500 years.

Enjoy a quiet afternoon on the front bridge overlooking the ocean, or the back bridge off the master bedroom. Depending on the timing of your visit, pick blueberries in the back yard, or take a walk along any of Summerville’s beautiful coves and beaches where sea glass and other treasures abound.

For bird lovers, you’ll be surrounded by blue jays, sparrows, crows, seagulls, osprey and bald eagles to name just a few. The fishing stage is a big draw for seabirds looking for a free feast following the filleting of cod caught daily in Summerville harbor. Stop by the stage and who knows, a kindly local fisherman may just gift you with a couple of filets of fresh caught north Atlantic cod!

Pets are welcome along with their responsible owners. Please be vigilant about scooping, and with Newfoundland's ever-changing weather, we ask that you give them a good towel-off before entering the house on rainy days or after an ocean plunge :)

NSWH is perfect for you if you’re looking for an authentic, non-touristy Newfoundland outport experience.

NSWH is next door to our other vacation rental Dory Buff. Dave offices out of his shed situated on the hill behind both properties.

Summerville maintains the same unique traditional charm it has had for hundreds of years. Locals refer fondly to the area as being a "festival free zone." Our sincere desire is that your friendly, respectful, discreet interaction with the locals will keep it that way!

Thank you!
Coco and Dave
