It's a beautiful home that is very relaxing and comfortable. While staying, we drove to Twillingate and enjoyed hiking to see amazing icebergs. We enjoyed hiking in the Terra Nova National Park as well. Slightly disappointed that a washer/dryer was not available on the property. But overall, the property was beautiful.

Well's Watch is beautiful inside and out!!

We loved our stay at this exceptionally clean and beautiful chalet. The location is great, the upstairs bed was very firm and comfortable, sofas were new and very comfortable, and the sunset views from upstairs were awesome. We did miss having a washer and dryer.

Hello Rhonda, Thank you for your review! We appreciate hearing from our guests. I believe you are the first guests to report going White Water Rafting and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed it! Sorry to hear that you missed the opportunity to enjoy a fire on the beach. You definitely have to catch Mother Nature at the right time to enjoy low tide and the shoreline below. Maybe another time!
