You’re closer than you think to the ocean’s edge. Our ocean-front cottages are just over an hour’s drive from St. John’s. And we’re right on the Baccalieu Trail, one of Newfoundland’s best-kept secrets.
We have four charming cottages in the picturesque fishing community of Whiteway, and four more just five minutes away in a secluded cove in Heart’s Delight-Islington.
And when we say ocean-front, we mean ocean-front. The only thing between you and your front window is the view! See all available cottages.
Enjoy cozy cabins steps from the ocean’s edge in Whiteway, a quintessential Newfoundland fishing community. Watch for dolphins, whales and fishing boats from your private deck, throw some steaks on your barbecue, then kick back and enjoy the sunset over the water and famous Shag Rock. See all available cottages here.
Secluded coastal Newfoundland meets pure comfort. Our Heart’s Delight cottages are 4&1/2 star, fully equipped with everything you need for a seaside getaway. Choose between the 2-bedroom Loon, or Puffin, or our 1-bedroom Gannet, or Osprey. Light the fire, roast marshmallows, cuddle up and watch the sunset, take a hike right along the water’s edge. It’s just you, your loved one, and the ocean. See all available cottages here.
Don’t take our word for it … Read our TripAdvisor Reviews here.
Our newly built Cranberry Cottage and renovated Cloudberry Cottage were designed for honeymooners, real or would be. The 2-story, two-bedroom Cranberry features a two person soaker in a large king suite upstairs, while the one-bedroom Cloudberry offers comfort and beauty fit for a King…or queen. And yes, ocean views as far as the eye can see from a number of vantage points. Forget honeymoon – this is how you honeyswoon. Find more details here.
We know that it can be hard to travel with animals – we’re pet owners, too. That’s why we welcome well-behaved four-legged guests in most cottages for a small fee. Trust us – your dog is going to love playing at the ocean’s edge just as much as you do!
Hello, Easy Livin’

Go fishing on the Atlantic, pick wild berries, eat seafood (like this lobster!) so fresh you know who caught it. Meet artists and fishermen. We can even ‘Screech’ you in. At Ocean Delight, you’re not just getting a place to stay. You’re getting an experience.
Have We Got Something Worth Sharing
Ocean Delight Cottages are owned by Laurelyn Berry (aka ‘The Berry’), and Jerry Byrne.
Our Ocean Delight journey began in 2012, when we became enamored with this beautiful corner of the island. From artists to festivals, golfing to boil-ups on the beach and everything in between …

So Many Things to Do:
Take a Gander
Love natural life? We’ve got it in droves. Easily take-in a day-trip to one of the Avalon’s three world-class ecological reserves, or an ocean tour to enjoy whales, eagles, ice bergs, seabirds, stunning scenery – everything you came to Newfoundland for!
We can happily point you towards some great local tour operators. And remember, Trinity Bay is a bird- and whale-watcher’s paradise – so you never know what you’re going to see off your back deck!
Take a Swing
Don’t let the ‘rural’ fool you: there’s more to do in rural Newfoundland than you could possibly imagine! Practice your swing at a nine-hole, challenging course, shop for original Newfoundland arts and crafts, visit a winery or the multitude of nearby landmarks and museums, or even learn how to build an old-fashioned wooden boat.
Here in the Wonderful World of Whiteway, you can be wined, dined, regaled, entertained, shocked, surprised … but never bored!
Take a Hike
There’s so much to explore all around the cottages, so don’t forget your hiking shoes! Coming in winter? We’ve got snowshoes! For a complete list of our favourite walking trails, please see here.
And our location on the Baccalieu Trail makes us the perfect starting point to explore the idyllic charms of rural Newfoundland. Drive to a point such as Bay de Verde, Cupids, or Brigus and return by a different route, visiting each charming community along the way.
Enjoy the Wonderful world of Whiteway all year ’round.
We’ve discovered that our ocean views are just as beautiful in winter as they are in summer. Whiteway cottages are now open all year so you can cozy up and watch the sunset any time you like.
A Hidden Gem
Less than 10 minutes away, you’ll find The Doctor’s House, a breathtaking inn & spa tucked between the trees and the water’s edge in Green’s Harbour. First created as a Doctor’s gift for his beloved wife, this 140 acre ocean front resort now includes an Aveda Spa, Secret Garden Restaurant (with in and outdoor dining), and is visited by guests from around the world for incredibly beautiful destination weddings. Our cottage guests are welcome to walk the trails, visit the gardens and meet the menagerie of Newfoundland ponies, goats, chicken, ducks and sheep!
