The SpaceI have 3 bedrooms available in a very clean, quiet, bright, 3-storey Victorian home. Each is fully furnished and available on short or long term. There is a formal livingroom (with fireplace), fully stocked kitchen, 2 bathrooms (one with original clawfoot tub and separate NEW marble walk-in shower), Wifi internet, TV room, washer/dryer, hardwood flooring, free on-street parking.
The house is owner-occupied by a university professor, 2 long-term tenants, and 2 cats. With over 1000 sqf per floor, spread over 3 floors and a basement, it is very private. The bathrooms are shared (sorry, I do not have any ensuites).
This listing is for a bedroom on the 2nd floor. The bedroom is approximately 256 sqf (16' x 16') and is furnished with a double bed, small couch, 2 dressers, desk, and wardrobe.
The rates listed here are for 1 room. If you have a larger group looking for space, please send me an inquiry and/or a second request via my other listing (3rd-floor). Guest AccessOn check-in you will get your own key to come and go as you please. You will have use of both bathrooms (shared), the living room, the backyard, the kitchen, and the washer/dryer. There are 2 refrigerators (full size and mini) in the kitchen for your use. You are welcome to cook (and to clean up after yourself). You are also welcome to use the BBQ and patio (no smoking inside). There is a deck heater for cooler evenings. Interaction with GuestsMy schedule is often quite flexible and on most days I am seldom more then 10-15 minutes from the house. When guests are interested, I often join them for drinks in the evenings, sometimes for cigars on the patio (I travel to Havana regularly with work - and keep a cigar supply at home). The NeighborhoodThe house is located on the same street as The Rooms (art gallery/archives/museum complex), and the Roman Catholic Basilica. It is in the historic Georgestown neighbourhood. It is a 10 minute walk to Duckworth street (almost straight downhill), 15 minutes to the university campus, less than 5 minutes to a grocery and liquor store (Sobeys) and, in the opposite direction, to the Georgestown Bakery (the BEST bakery in Newfoundland) and Georgestown Cafe. Getting AroundThere is free on-street parking and a bus stop a few meters from the front door. It is in one of the most walkable and (yes I'm biased) most fabulous neighbourhoods in St. John's. Other Things to NoteSt. John's is a city of hills and I live near the top of one of those. It will take you 10 minutes to walk to Duckworth/Water Street - but a bit longer to climb back home. Likewise, my house has 3-storeys (with high ceilings), which also means a lot of stairs. I can't advise on how hard you will find the hills (a common question asked by tourists - I walk it daily without difficulty, but it depends on you).
