About Us

Our 2 bedroom home is just 25 minutes from St. John's but offers a tranquil, country setting. Come relax on our oversized patio and enjoy a cold beverage while watching whales and icebergs in season. Wake to the sounds of chirping birds and escape the chaos of city life

Our vacation home is very cozy and private, attached on one side to our home, but fully independent and fully furnished. The interior of the homes do not directly communicate with each other

Inside the vacation home, you will find everything you need to live comfortably while away from home. The kitchen contains a full sized stove and fridge, a bar sized kitchen table with 4 chairs and 2 stools, counter microwave and dishwasher as well as many small appliances (including a water dispenser / bottled water, air fryer, toaster, Keurig coffee machine with k-cups, instant regular and decaf coffee , electric can opener, knife block / knives, and kettle). Many spices, butter, peanut butter, jam, a well stocked cupboard (plates, glasses, cups, bowls, utensils), disposable glasses and plates also, saran wrap in dispenser, and some extras are provided

The bathroom has a whirlpool tub and shower 

Laundry facilities include a modern stackable full sized washer and dryer, iron, and ironing board. Detergents are provided

The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed, 47 inch TV sitting on an electric fireplace stand, full sized dresser with mirror, and even a sink just outside the walk in closet. The second bedroom contains a double bed, electric fireplace with 47 inch TV, corner unit with fresh linen, and a full sized dresser. The closet is open with a mirror. We have many cable channels from which to select, including some movie channels

A futon, in the living room, extends to a double bed. A second full sized couch in the living room allows recline position on each end. Coffee and end table with lamp adorn the room. A 55 inch TV sits on an electric fireplace unit. We have the Wii system with a small assortment of games. Additionally, we have a variety of board games, children's toys, books for those of all ages, and some activity books

A large patio wraps around two sides, allowing complete privacy on the side deck. In summer, a wide assortment of flowers adorns the area. Patio furnishings include a patio swing, a children's patio swing, 2 bistro sized patio tables with chairs, a 2-seater glider, and a 4 burner BBQ. These luxuries  welcome you to forget the worries of everyday life. Note that, in the fall / winter season, patio furnishings are in storage. However, there will remain the BBQ and a 2-seater wooden patio chair

Our vacation home has a most beautiful view of the ocean which can be enjoyed on the oversized deck. Binoculars enhance view of objects farther away. Mature trees add privacy and add to the relaxing nature of this home

The East Coast Hiking Trail and Marine Park (family oriented fun) are located in the community as points of outdoor activities

Directions to Murray House


Our vacation home is located at 16A Connors Loop, Pouch Cove, NL, Canada


Travel north on Torbay Road (driving in the opposite direction from down-town St. John’s)

At the point of the traffic lights at the intersection of Torbay Road and Hebron Way, continue straight on Torbay Road. Approximately 3 kilometers from the Hebron Way / Torbay Road intersection, you will have the opportunity to travel either straight through Torbay or to turn left and enter the Torbay Bypass Road 

If you took the Torbay Bypass Road, continue to the end, at which point the other route (which travels straight through Torbay Road with no turns) connects. Continue straight north toward Pouch Cove. Travelling through the communities, you will pass a gas station after about 1 kilometer, later Pouch Cove Pharmacy, a car repair shop, Pouch Cove postal outlet, and Pouch Cove town hall / fire station

You will come to a bridge, then the one stop sign in Pouch Cove (that facing a fork in the road just past the town hall and kiddie park). Keep to the right. You will soon see a fenced lookout area to the right. In just a few more feet, you will see Connors Hill to your left (at the base of the hill, there is a paved driveway leading to a house behind a green colored house). Drive up Connors Hill. Shortly after entering Connors Hill, you will pass a driveway on the left side of the road, a dark brown house on the right, and then the first of two access points to Connors Loop. Drive to the second access point to Connors Loop (just past the 2 - tone brown house on the right. The first access point is intended as an exit and not used as an entrance due to its steep slope). You should see a fire hydrant at the entrance to Connors Loop to your left. Enter this lane, drive past the light brown house on the left, turn at the corner of this house and you will see a yellow shed / yellow house in front of you. This is our house. Turn right after passing the shed. You can park here. You will then have arrived at the vacation house main entrance. Welcome !
