Nearby, wildlife abounds: whales, dolphins, and sea otters in the ocean; bald headed eagles soar on high,and puffin colonies at Elliston. In spring and early summer, gigantic icebergs drift along the shoreline and frequently become trapped in the rocky bays and inlets that characterize the coastline....an unforgettable experience unique to Newfoundland!

Commander's Keep Vacation Home is located on an isthmus of land that forms the most easterly aspect of the town of Trinity, Trinity Bay. Its lofty seat is on the area of land called 'the Nuddick'. This location gives a 270 degree view of the Harbour, with the Lighthouse, the Skerwink Cliffs, and the ocean beyond! Behind the house lies the town, with Gun Hill as the 'backdrop'. White churches, and multicoloured traditional Newfoundland style houses, shops, and the Theatre create a picturesque panorama of another variety for our guests to enjoy, just looking out every window of the house.
