This remote Airbnb in Newfoundland’s Iceberg Alley is a nature lover’s dream
Ah, ‘ome sweet ‘ome, right? That’s what we always say. The Ome Pod in Newfoundland is hands-down one of the coolest Airbnbs we’ve ever seen, and they’re making sure hometown warm and fuzzies are there every step of the way.
The Ome Pod (which we were pronouncing “omee” and “ohm” in our heads before making the “home” connection, whoops) is nestled into the coastline of Burlington, Newfoundland.
It’s just mere steps from the water of Iceberg Alley. How many times in your life have you sat with your morning coffee and looked over gently floating icebergs in the ocean before you? For us, it’s solidly zero.
Stunning hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and oversized sliding glass doors give way to sunset views and ocean glimpses. A crackling woodstove warms you and yours, or you can bundle up in blankets on the wraparound porch.
It runs on solar energy and uses other nifty eco-friendly features because we’re all about loving nature out here. And holy smokes, that’s easy to do!
Not only is this an exceptional getaway, but it’s got an incredible story behind it. Canadian actor/writer/comedian Shaun Majumder set out to increase tourism to rural Newfoundland, and this pod is part of a sustainable micro-economy for the region. All money made goes right back into Burlington and surrounding communities.
The overall project includes luxury camping, cabins, and a community greenhouse in addition to the Pod. Gosh darn it, we’re feeling things again.
This one of a kind getaway is worth the travel, guys. We’re going to post up in the Pod, so don’t tell the hosts when we “forget” to leave.
