My friend and I rented both cottages for a week with our children and spent our time there visiting one of the three nearby beaches every day and cooking out at night.
It was one of the most relaxing, fun vacations I've had in a long time. in addition to the beaches, the cottages are close to other sites, like the Newport mansions, downtown shopping, the Newport Tennis Hall of Fame, and many different restaurants, from casual clam shacks to five-star dining.
I've rented other houses before which weren't quite so equipped, as well. These cottages have everything from stainless appliances to gas grills to a washer/dryer to sheets and bath towels.
If there are any quesitons/issues, the owner lives nearby and is just a phone call away and he is always pleasant and efficient.
I would recommend these cottages to anyone looking for an any season get-a-way where they can feel at home while being on vacation!
