Some recent reviews of Christian’s Croft, from TripAdvisor, VRBO, AirBNB and google:

We stayed at this beautiful home for two nights. The amenities are complete and we couldn’t have been more comfortable. We used the BBQ, which was spotless, and had a lovely steak dinner there. Chris recommended the Dock for fish and chips and we were very happy with the food there. The living room is very comfortable and great for cozying up at night. There are several fantastic hiking trails nearby and they are close enough to walk to from the house. The owners are absolutely lovely and made us feel very welcome. Lily gave us a jar of her homemade jam, yum:) We would highly recommend this home away from home. [Teresa- Errington BC – stayed May 2023]

Updated heritage home with charming hosts

Christian’s Croft is a perfect base for your exploration of the Bonavista peninsula. Located in a quiet neighbourhood, it offers excellent beds, modern plumbing and a well-equipped kitchen. The hosts, who live next door, were friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. An excellent find! [Dave : BC – stayed Sept 2022]

Perfection. Situated in the historic and charming outport of Trinity, this home was the perfect combination of old and new. An historic cottage updated with the everything we wanted including comfy beds, gas grill, outdoor patio and an amazing Kitchen. Could not be more comfortable. Felt like home. Had some amazing hikes nearby, enjoyed a great performance at Rising Tide theatre and early morning walks around the village. Chris and Lily are great hosts who know how to do it right![Stephen : New Hampshire – stayed Sept 2022]

We loved everything about our stay at Christian’s Croft. The house is comfortable, clean, well-equipped, and so charming. Chris and Lily were so helpful, nice, and easy to communicate with. I would definitely like to stay here again! [Nina : New York- stayed Sept 2022]

This is our 2nd trip back to Trinity. What a warm welcome, and wonderful to see Chris and Lily again. Christian Croft is immaculate, comfortable and well equipped with amenities above and beyond a hotel suit. The location is within walking distance to restaurants, theatre, hiking trial and shops. We enjoyed our stay and it is like returning home again! [Janet : London Ontario – stayed Aug 2022]

Trinity Treasure

We loved our stay in this charming traditional house with lots of character. The hosts have looked after all the details. You just have to enjoy. [Geoff : St. John’s – stayed Aug 2022]


An amazing home and hosts. Beds are the most comfortable we have had. Would stay again if we returned to Trinity. Perfection [Cathy : Ont.- stayed July 2022]

A wonderful place to come back from exploring nearby. Felt like home. A beautiful property [Jacques : Calgary – stayed July 2022]

Chris and Lily were the best Airbnb hosts I have met! Checking in to make sure we were comfortable and proving suggestions for what to see and do. I have used Airbnb for 10 years now. They are the best![Doris : Waterloo – stayed July 2022]

Chris and Lilly are welcoming and friendly host – we enjoyed our time staying here and exploring the town [Scott : St. John’s – stayed July 2022]

We loved our stay here and Lily and Chris are such warm and wonderful hosts. Christian’s Croft has so much character itself and all the amenities and decorations provided are expertly done by Lily and Chris. The beds are really comfortable and everything you need is there. Up at Elliston, a curious puffin landed at our feet. The Dungeon Prov. Park coastline is spectacular. The moderate 5.3km up and down Skerwink trail is a magnificent must do. Around Trinity, book restaurants early as they fill up fast. Highly recommend Christian’s Croft for a magnificent stay. You won’t regret it. [Andrew : Calgary – stayed June 2022]

Incredible hosts. Offered great suggestions and rightly noted that 2 days is not enough to even begin exploring this historical area. Super location. Clean. Welcoming. Really enjoyed our stay. [Ellen Ruth: Ottawa- stayed June 2022]

We loved both Trinity and Chris & Lilly’s house. Wonderful location and based for our 4 days stay in Trinity. [Peter & Jess : LondonUK – stayed June 2022]

Perfect location! We enjoyed the Cosy Christian’s Croft and look forward to returning. Lily & Chris are amazing hosts! [Ashley : St John’s – stayed June 2022]

Chris and Lilys home is perfect for a visit to Trinity! Two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a lovely living space allow for lots of room for guests. They were gracious hosts and check in/ out was very easy. [Mary, Ontario – stayed Oct 2021 ]

Beautiful place, very relaxing and lovely. The ultimate comfort spot. Lily and Chris definitely know how to make the most of out their lovely home! You will not be disappointed! [Lorelei, Carbonear- stayed Sept 2021 ]

This is an absolutely gorgeous get-away. Our hosts, Lily and Chris saw to it that we would have a superb vacation. The house was impeccable – spotlessly clean, fully furnished and equipped with everything vacationers could want. In addition, its location at the waterfront in Trinity adds a very special note of peace and calm. [Bob & Claire, Mississauga – stayed Aug 2021]

What a wonderful space! The house was very well laid out and impeccably outfitted with everything you might need for your stay. We did a lot of cooking in the spotless kitchen and had all the tools we needed for both indoor cooking and grilling on the propane grill on the deck. Chris and Lily were great hosts and were very responsive (not that we had any problems at all!). I highly recommend this place 😀[ Kristine, Boulder,CO – stayed Aug 2021]

Awesome location in the heart of the community! Beds were super comfortable and lots of space for clothes and toiletries. A shower in each bathroom was very convenient for our group. Very spacious for a traditional Newfoundland house. Deck was used both days/nights with great seating! If you get the opportunity for Lilly to make you dinner, don’t hesitate in saying YES! It was absolutely delicious and no one left the table hungry! We will be back again…sooner than later I hope! Highly recommend this property![Kelly, St. John’s – stayed Aug 2021]

Christian’s Croft is a beautiful century old home in the heart of Trinity. Lily is a great host. She is engaging and very prompt with her replies. The house is very clean and the property is lovely. How many hosts would pick strawberries for you from their garden not once, but twice? She was a little upset that Chris was out of town and we didn’t have the opportunity to meet him. Property is very well stocked with everything you will need plus has two full bathrooms. A plus for two couples. Will definitely visit again especially if the strawberries are in season. [Kim, St. John’s – stayed Aug 2021]

Lily and Chris were fantastic. Their place was fabulous and in a great location. We had a wonderful stay. We look forward to our next visit. [Heather, St John’s – stayed Aug 2021]

Great accommodation in an absolutely beautiful location. Chris & Lily have great communication and response time. Our experience was amazing. The house is lovely and extremely clean. We had everything we needed, including a treat of homemade blueberry jam. Highly recommend this accommodation. [Michelle,Grande Prairie – stayed July,Aug 2021]

Chris & Lily’s place is incredibly located right in the centre of the quaint village of Trinity. Their location cannot be beat. The house is cosy and very comfortable. It has everything you might need to enjoy your stay, I would recommend their place to anyone who would like to spend some time visiting beautiful Trinity. [Rhona , Montreal – stayed July 2021]

A charming century home in the heart of Trinity village: We truly enjoyed our stay in your home. It was clean and tidy and inviting at the same time. You were both kind and responsive to our questions and super friendly on arrival. We could not have asked for more. You both made our stay in Trinity even more special. [Michael, St John’s – stayed July 2021]

The house is in a great location in the heart of beautiful Trinity. Everything you could possibly need has been provided. Chris & Lily were great hosts and could not do enough for you. [Barb, Quispamsis – stayed July 2021]

Beautiful heritage home with modern conveniences. Well equipped. Location in the village could not be better. Everything within walking distance, [ Deb, St. John’s – stayed July 2021]

This is a lovely historic property situated in the centre of Trinity close to all attractions and Rising Tide Theatre. It’s beautifully appointed and decorated and absolutely spotless in every respect…neat and tidy. Two full bathrooms are a plus also. The outside grounds are lovely and surrounded by green space and flowers with a nice back deck with Adirondack lounge chairs and a bbq. This is a very old home which has been re-modelled but still has kept the historic quality. During our stay it was unseasonably warm in Trinity..(over 25c), and we found the house to be a tad warm, but I am sure that 95% of the time this would not be an issue. You won’t be disappointed with your choice to stay at Chris and Lily’s home. [David; stayed August 2020]

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the hosts Lily and Chris, to the time we left, we found this vacation home exceptional. The house was immaculate both inside and outside. It is evident the owners take pride in their property and do all they can to ensure an enjoyable stay. The kitchen was very well equipped, and spacious. The two washrooms, with hotel quality towels, were exceptionally clean. The couches in the living area were very comfortable, and in excellent condition. Upstairs, both bedrooms were spacious, and the beds with quality linens were extremely comfortable. While offering us privacy, Chris and Lily did provide suggestions for things we may enjoy while in the area. I would definitely recommend Christian‘s Croft and look forward to visiting there again. [Karen; Paradise-stayed Aug 2020]

Christian’s Croft is a beautiful heritage home perfectly located in the centre of town…walking distance to all the local attractions. The house is super clean and the beds were so can tell the owners take great pride in their property. We loved it all from the little chocolates left for us to the extra toiletries. Chris and Lily were so friendly and helpful…the perfect host. We would highly recommend this place…you will not be disappointed. We hope to return. [Nancy; stayed August 2020]

Chris and Lily were excellent hosts and very sociable. If they offer to make you an Asian meal I would take them up on that, as it was amazing. The location was perfect. [David; stayed July 2020]

Amazing AirBNB in the centre of Trinity. Pictures don’t do justice to how clean and elegant this airbnb is! Definitely would stay again! [Jeremy; stayed July 2020]

This is a beautiful heritage house in the heart of Trinity, on the Bonavasta Pensinsula. It was great to meet Chris and Lily, who are friendly and personable. Check in and communication was very smooth and easy. The place is also very clean, and easily walkable to all attractions and activities within Trinity. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. [Mark; stayed July 2019]

A Charming Place : We really enjoyed our stay in Trinity. Your place was immaculate and had everything we needed. Your hospitality was great and having a home cooked Asian meal was the perfect ending to our stay. It was really nice to meet you both and we have many great memories of Trinity. [Lester C.; stayed July 2019]

Excellent! : A great experience in a beautiful part of the world, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Christian’s Croft. Chris and Lily are great hosts and provided us with information and recommendations that helped make our stay in Trinity even better. The accommodations are remarkable with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. Trinity is a wonderful place and Christian’s Croft is a great place to stay. Highly recommended and the place that I would stay if I should ever return to Trinity. Many thanks! [David B.; stayed July 2019]

First Trip to Newfoundland : The house is very quaint and located right in the middle of town. Tourists frequently walk around the various buildings in the town, of which this one is in the midst of. We had to explain we were tourists as well; just renting. Not a problem; we could have had some fun with this pretending we were part of the tour. The house had everything we needed. Having two showers was great since we were 2 couples. Kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed many euchre games at the table. The owners live next door. Having them greet us as we arrived, was welcoming. They were very nice. The location of the house is close to everything in town; all within walking distance. We enjoyed 3 restaurant meals, a stage play, and several shops, as well as the many historical buildings.  [Gary O.; stayed July 2019]

Home Away From Home : Christian’s Croft is across the lane from a church built in 1833, in the lovely town of Trinity. The house is fully renovated and so comfortable – truly home away from home. Lily and Chris are a lovely couple, so friendly and hospitable, we left feeling we had made new friends! Lily’s homemade blueberry jam was a very nice touch. We plan to return! Thanks Lily and Chris. [caroline; stayed July 2019]

Perfect Location in Trinity : The small town of Trinity has a lot of history to share, and Chris and Lily are doing their part with the complete restoration of Christian’s Croft. Fantastic hosts, they greeted us upon arrival, and gave us great tips on things to see and do in the area. The home is beautifully restored, a mix of modern comforts with traditional styling. Everything we needed and more. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a base to explore Trinity, Bonavista, Elliston, Skerwink Trail, etc. A must-do is the historical walking tour in Trinity with host Kevin Toope, another recommendation from Lily and Chris.
