My 14 year old niece and I had a wonderful stay in this community. Breakwater Village is centrally located to many Rhode Island attractions, yet quiet and private. The cottage itself is very clean (so important in a rental) and cozy. The decks offer extra space and lovely views. You can see both Block Island and the Newport Bridge from the rooftop deck. The front deck offers peeks of the ocean in front of the private community beach. The water is clear with gentle waves, perfect for little ones or adults who just want too relax and drift. Also easy for kayaking and paddle boarding. If you crave bolder Atlantic surf, East Matunuck State Beach is 18 minutes door-to-shore. We rode our bikes to the Block Island ferry dock for a great day trip; Newport mansions were an easy drive as well. Evening walks to Iggy's and Aunt Carrie's were a tasty way to end the day. Kerri was great to work with and had a binder of info waiting on our arrival. Overall, a fantastic start to summer!!
