Walking distance to grocery store, shopping and walking trails. Comfortable, clean and quiet. Use of the entire house to share with one other person.

The house is fairly spacious with two full bathrooms. In addition to the bedroom the guest has use of a separate TV area. High speed internet is available and network name and password will be provided upon check in. I have a small dog who is very quiet and friendly. He is kennelled during the day while I'm at work. There is a large backyard with deck that the quest is welcome to use and share with the home owner.
For the most part this is a scent free home, except for soaps, shampoos and hair products.

Joy's place is lovely. Joy is accommodating, even letting me use her big soaker tub for a cleaning fee! She was flexible with timing and communicated with me via text which was easier when traveling. Her kitchen was my kitchen and her lovely little dog was so very friendly (but not overly!) The room was just the right size and across from the bathroom which was very spacious. The shower had great water pressure and a shower head with all different settings. It also became a handheld if you needed. I will definitely revisit this home when I'm back in St. John's.

Joy was a great host. I was working at Memorial University for 2 weeks and it was a short walk from her place. She gave me rides several times to the grocery store and to get about town. Her house was lovely and clean. The room was just right.

Joy is a relaxed and generous host. She has a lovely, quiet and clean home that is conveniently located. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Joy was a great host and very accommodating for the trip. Her location is ideal for the university however it is a far walk to downtown St. John's and about a 15 minute walk to the grocery store. Her accommodations were very clean and she had all the basic necessities.

Had a wonderful stay here! I am a medical student from Ontario who did a two-week elective placement at the HSC hospital in St. John's. The location was perfect for a quick walk to the hospital (under 10 min). Was also able to walk downtown in 25min. Joy was a perfectly welcoming and thoughtful hostess. She even took me grocery shopping when I arrived. When there was a big snowstorm and I had no winter boots, she lent me her own. She also has a friendly dog named Daegan who was great company too. The house itself is very clean and has everything you need - bedroom exactly as pictured, with access to a modern updated kitchen and bathroom. Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone on placement at HSC or Janeway hospital or Memorial University.

I was only in town for a few days, and Joy was an amazing host! She was very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. Would definitely stay here again!
