My place is 1 km from a lake and 1 km from the ocean which has beautiful view of bell island. My place has mature trees with a private rural feel, but 1 km from the convenience store. The patio gets sun all day due to property being oriented east-west. We are 10 mins from the city of St. John's. (15 from downtown) St. Phillips has many small lakes.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
Everyone who comes to this place says that the cottage is very cozy and private. It is surrounded by trees. If you look out of the window on a clear day, you can just see the blue of the ocean in the distances. Because we are further inland, our property is shelter and often warmer. Everyone who visits from st. johns or mount pearl comments on how much warmer it is out in St. Phillips. I like to sit out on patio on a sunny day with a coffee or a beer and listen to the silence sometimes to relax.
The cottage. No access to the garage.
