Great spot just outside St. John's

This spot is more than an apartment. It's a beautiful 2 bedroom basement apartment that doesn't look or feel like a basement apartment. The apartment is lovely and very well appointed. The scenery is phenomenal, with much time spent in Muslims chairs around the fire. The owner, Judy, is lovely and very helpful. I would book here again in an instant. Thanks Judy!

Beautiful Waterside Retreat Thank you !!!!

In my personal opinion , if you want to truly experience Newfoundland , you won't find a better place to start than at the Royle Roost. I decided to write this today after driving by yesterday and remembering what a wonderful week I had back in April . I would like to thank and congratulate the owner of the Royle Roost on the wonderful accommodations we so gratefully were given the opportunity to have availed of. This home itself is EXTREMELY well appointed , with amazing character and the ocean right beside the door. This rental property has an in house washer and dryer !!! A very comfortably gracious home ; in every sense of the word. Every thing a body needs and far more and even some amenities from the owner , just because. I would recommend this home away from home for anyone - just wanting to run away to the seaside. I WILLL be back - Over and Over !! It was wonderful whatever we needed was at hand , if not already there. pick up whatever food item you want just down the road . All the conveniences , all the time It's the perfect get away 30 minutes from St. John's. And now there are icebergs in the cove , not just water !! I cannot say Thank you enough to owners for providing an amazingly peaceful home for us and others. I do hope more people talk about the wonderful experience and the beauty that is the Royle Roost in Witless Bay , Newfoundland !Thank you , Thank you Thank you !!!

1. Good location. 2. Scenic. 3. Clean. 4. Should pay more attention to little things which are quite annoying like squeaking of doors, broken dishwasher, not enough kitchen wares, etc. 5. Should have unlimited supply of paper towel, bathroom tissues, etc. 6. Too many small ornamental stuff in a small space. 7. Should have a visual check out but not to complain after clients have left.
