My wife rented this beautiful home to celebrate my 40th birthday with my family visiting from the UK and Australia. Betty Lou and Bill were gracious hosts, meeting us in the rain when we arrived as well as being available to call whenever we had a question, during our stay. The house had more than enough room to accommodate 8 and the garden and grounds were beautifully kept & maintained. Everything is as described and pictured if not prettier and more charming than.
The 3 children and our cocker spaniel Harley, had a wonderful time playing in the garden on the swings and spotting birds and rabbits around the 4 acre property. There's a charming walk carved out through the gardens at the back too.
The location is ideal. nice a secluded for privacy. Though an easy bike or walk to third beach. A car will get you quickly everywhere else. Sandy point beach was an ideal beach for us. Perfect for kids and they allow leashed dogs too.
We ate out in Newport at a Mexican restaurant called "Perro Salado" - delicious! There my daughter and niece politely chatted with Parker Posey who was in town shooting a Woody Allen movie that week.
For a group of 4 or more / or 2-3 couples with kids this is perfect. We all had a wonderful stay. We would certainly stay again and we highly recommend this Middletown RI vacation home to everyone.
