Accommodations were excellent. Spacious, clean and everything you needed was there if you were inclined to cook. The owner Selena gave us great suggestions for things to do in the area from taking in some local theater in Ferryland to whale watching at Gatherall's in Bull's Bay. Talking to locals was interesting as well as entertaining. We had a smile on our faces the whole visit.

“Loved it.”

Lovely accommodation: loved the wood fire, the cosy bed, the fully-equipped kitchen and especially the VIEW. There's a trailhead for the East Coast Trail right across the road with gorgeous hikes in both directions. Easy drive to/from St John's and around the Irish Loop.

“Comfortable place to rest!”

Tara House is very well equipped and furnished house offering great views of the Bay, whilst on Route 10, is it quiet and easy to find. Great refuge to go back to after a day trekking or sea kayaking. Communication with the owner is quick - thank you Selena for all your help - I would highly recommend Tara House!

“A tranquil place to rest up & explore”

We stayed 4 nights in this home (2 adults & 2 teen boys). We were amazed at what a lovely home this was from the moment we arrived. The home is very well appointed and we couldn't think of a thing that it didn't have. Fully equiped kitchen, BBQ, dishwasher and laundry facilities. Waking up to the view on the bay each morning was a soothing way to start the day. With 2 teen boys travelling with us, there was lots of room to stretch out & we weren't stumbling over one another. We would definitely stay here again!

“Great Avalon location, Lovely property, only 1 1/2 baths”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was a great location. Very nice new home, many amenities. Immaculate and comfortable. We picked this property because we wanted 2 full baths as advertised, but there was only one full bathroom with a half-bath. This was an inconvenience for us, 2 couples travelling together. According to the owner of Tara House, Trip Adviser considers 1 .5 baths as 2 full baths. I suggest you confirm the details of your accommodations before booking. If you want a 1 1/2 bath new, desireable property in Avalon, this is a really good choice!
