Holiday Rental House
Spurrell's Heritage Home is a newly renovated Newfoundland rental cottage nestled on an oceanfront beach in a quiet cove. Situated on the land his Great Grandmother bought in 1930, owner Dustin Spurrell, has recreated a vacation home that has been said to be the best kept secret around. This classic but modern Newfoundland cottage offers breathtaking views of the ocean and rugged coastline and provides the possibility of majestic encounters with icebergs, whales and eagles right from your front door. Truly an authentic Newfoundland experience your family will remember forever. This cottage-style vacation home is situated amongst century old fishing stages that provide a glimpse into Newfoundland's past and times gone by. Imagine being able to relax and fall to sleep to the gentle sounds...Spurrell's Heritage Home is a newly renovated Newfoundland rental cottage nestled on an oceanfront beach in a quiet cove.

Truly an authentic Newfoundland experience your family will remember forever. This cottage-style vacation home is situated amongst century old fishing stages that provide a glimpse into Newfoundland's past and times gone by. Imagine being able to relax and fall to sleep to the gentle sounds of the ocean rolling onto the beach. At Spurrell's Heritage Home this is a possibility in every room. Experience Newfoundland and spend your vacation at Spurrell's Heritage Home. Located just 5 minutes away from the Historic Town of Trinity and 15 minutes from Port Rexton (Port Rexton Brewery & Skirwink Trail). Open year round!! The front entrance, porch, kitchen, dining room, stairway, landing and double bedroom is the old structure which was my late Grandmother's one bedroom cabin (from the outside it looks like a barn shaped structure). The landing at the top of the steps was where the washroom was located. During the renovation process we removed the washroom and added a skylight. We also added a skylight in the double bedroom. No other interior walls were removed or relocated. The living room, laundry room, 1/2 bathroom, master bedroom and full washroom is completely new.More

About the neighbourhood
Spurrell's Heritage Home is located in Dunfield (the community where I was born and raised). My family has lived there since the mid 1800's. It is only a short 5 minute drive from Historic Trinity and 15 minutes from Port Rexton (Skerwink Trail and Port Rexton Brewery). Bonavista is approximately a 50 minute drive. Random Passage, Joe's Bar and Rugged Beauty Boat Tours are located in New Bonaventure, just a short 15 minute drive.
Getting around
There is no public transit in our area. There may be taxi service available. Please speak with one of the locals as it changes yearly.
