5/5 Excellent

Excellent Hosts and Exceptionally Clean
The house was perfect for our annual family girls getaway. Plenty of space, location was great and the house was very clean. Everything we could have hoped for.

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful stay
We were really pleased with the accommodation. It was clean and well equiped. The beds were comfortable. There is a lovely view of the water and we spent a lot of time on the veranda in the rocking chairs. The businesses in Twillingate were very accommodating and did their best to provide a safe environment during this Covid 19 crisis.

5/5 Excellent

This property was lovely. Positioned across the road from the ocean, we were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather that allowed us to sit on the front porch every morning and watch the boats and sea-doos playing in the harbour as we sipped our respective tea’s and coffee‘S . The songbirds were out in full force and all of nature seemed to conspire to make our staycation perfect. This is an older property that has obviously had some affectionate care and attention. The upgrades are evidently the owner’s understanding of how special this property is. We appreciated the opportunity to come to understand why this property and Twillingate are so special ❣️

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful view and plenty of space including large outdoor deck area.

5/5 Excellent

Twillingate Haven
Loved the oceanfront location, the old world charm, the large , well appointed rooms, the very comfortable beds, the awesome new windows with lots of light.. the gorgeous dining space, the washer and dryer convenience, the cleanliness of the place. Well worth the $$ and will definitely stay again in the future <3
