Reade offers a fantastic 3 storey dwelling within minutes of downtown St. John's. Right in the middle of "jelly bean" central, you can walk anywhere within the downtown core in under 15 minutes. Bring your hiking shoes for the journey back though! It's a beautiful uphill climb anytime you leave the Harbour.
The house has 2 main levels, with bedrooms and bathrooms in floors 1 and 3 - perfect for large and extended families who need both space and privacy. We had no problems accommodating ourselves, our two children (11 months and 2 years), and our nanny. The staircase to the lowest level is quite narrow and steep, but there is a door that blocks it off from the living room, making it quite safe.
His kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, serving wear and storage containers for a crowd so we took advantage of Belbin's grocery store delivery and ate in most evenings.
During our week long stay, Reade (who was out of province at the time) readily responded to all of our requests and provided options to make our stay more enjoyable. We highly recommend his home without reservation. A big thanks!
