Murray House: Best find for places to stay in Newfoundland

Murray House is well equipped to make your stay a stress-free "home away from home" experience

If you seek quality places to stay in Newfoundland, be sure to check out Murray House vacation home rentals in the quiet, ocean-front, community of Pouch Cove. Murray House is a duplex style home that captures the true essence of Newfoundland life. Many home in outport communities, in years gone, by had been of this design to allow for extended families to live independent lives but remain in close contact with each other. The primary residence, owned by Phil and me, was formerly Phil's family home. In fact, he was physically born and then raised in the house. We continue to live in the main home and are readily available to guests should there be questions, concerns, or just the opportunity to socialize with a down to earth Newfoundland couple. 


In recent years, the house was fully remodelled to capture the old home style in a modernized home. No other homes are situated within about 100 feet of the duplex.
