About Emily Deming
I am a travel writer and journalist. I write reviews of local restaurants and cultural events. I was a geophysicist but when I moved to St John's for a temporary work assignment, the pull of this place was too much to resist and so I left a career that would have taken me away from Newfoundland eventually in favour of making this my permanent home and forging on into the unknown! I grew up in California, and St. John's reminds me a lot of the hills and views and colourful streets of the bay area in Northern California. Though the laid back attitude is more like San Diego. I live with my partner (Ken Holden - a photographer/postman who is from St John's), our daughter, a husky from Labrador and a cross-eyed cat from New Orleans. We love to catch bergy bits for our cocktails during iceberg season and are never tired of the amazing adventures on this island.

Home away from home
We loved this home. Location was great. Clean and quiet. We appreciated the local bagels, milk, juice, eggs and cream cheese they left us to get us started. The creek and backyard was beautiful. Easy to communicate with owners. Thanks so much Ken and Emily. Your place was truly a home away from home.
All the St John’s Charm
We loved staying here. The location is full of and surrounded by all the old style St John’s charm.
Our family of 5 stayed here for two weeks. This adorable home had plenty of room for all if us and was the perfect St John’s location to enjoy all sites and be a home base for our travels and visits with fam and friends. The Waterford river in the back yard and many decks provided the perfect get away from it all.
The hosts we perfect mix of attentive and leave you alone
We would be happy to stay here again. on our next trip
Lovely and lots of room
This is a lovely property in a great location. Lots of room for a family and very well equipped. The hosts are very gracious and helpful with restaurant recommendations. We had delicious bagels and breakfast things waiting for us. Thanks for a great stay in wonderful St. John's!
Great property in a great location!
We recently stayed at Ken and Emily's place and it was great! Very clean, quiet and well equipped with everything you need! Emily and Ken are great to deal with and even had a very well stocked fridge when we arrived - a very nice touch. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in St. John's.
Property was very clean and tidy, everything worked. (although I was unable to operate the espresso machine) I appreciated the coffee/breakfast supplies to tie me over till I was able to do my own shopping. Noise from the neighbouring duplex was minimal. I would certainly consider staying again, especially in warmer climate to take advantage of the rear decks.
Arrived to find fresh bagels on the counter, milk, oj and a half dozen eggs in the fridge. Very nice welcoming touch. Ken and Emily were very quick in replying to our questions prior to our arrival. Parking is a little tight but managable. The unit was very clean with a well equipped kitchen and had hotel quality linens. The multi levels added charm to the character of the place. Would stay again.
All of downtown St John's with its international renown for its mix of traditional and cutting edge cuisine, its unparalleled bar and pub culture, its famous live music scene, and cultural attractions is a short jaunt from this property. In just a 15 minute drive the other direction you hit Petty Harbour with the longest zip line in North America, fresh seafood by the harbour, fishing and the new mini-aquarium.
In any direction for the property you will find hikes, whale watching, berry picking, and stunning views all within a walk or a short drive.
