The Whale Watcher House is a 3-unit vacation rental which sits on the edge of the cliff, overlooking the islands in the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve.  Each unit is separate from the other - they are discreet, private and have their own decks.  This particular unit is The Puffin.

The Whale Watcher's location is second to none on the Avalon Peninsula. Day trips can include everything from checking out the newest UNESCO site in Portugal Cove South - Mistaken Point, to whale watching and birding in Bay Bulls or Witless Bay, to hiking the dramatic paths of the East Coast Trail.  For further information on a selection of one day trips to make from the Whale Watcher's apartments - click through to Location from our menu...and there are links to the recommended activities.

The Puffin apartment features a private entrance, bedroom with queen bed, kitchen/living room, and a deck with one of the best views on the Avalon.  There is a flop down mattress and a portable single bed in the closet.

This apartment can be converted to a two bedroom, two bathroom unit by contacting Elaine at [email protected]
