The house is newly renovated, still awaiting final touches, it'll be even more beautiful when its done. Plenty of space for everyone, great for families with kids. Love all the windows, very bright and airy. We loved waking up to the sound of birds and the breeze. Great views from the bedrooms. I'm sure the observatory will be beautiful when its finished. Loved the little area of houses its located in, great for walking, very friendly people there. My favorite part was exploring the small, but beautiful beach in the neighborhood. So private and just gorgeous.
We LOVED Tiverton and Little Compton. So calming and peaceful. All the farms, stone walls, beautiful old houses and trees, right on the water. Perfect spot for what we wanted, to be in a quiet area. All the adorable shops (especially loved Cutie Curls for my little girls, and the Courtyards shop). Grays ice cream was awesome. Also, had quite a few dinners at Evelyn's on the water, and the Boathouse to celebrate a special birthday night, and then our anniversary. We explored Fogland Beach, and Goosewing (absolutely beautiful!). We were in awe of all the beautiful rocks on the beach.
It was great it wasn't far from Newport, got to go to the Newport Kite Festival, and dinner in Newport which is always great. Also, not far from Providence and took the kids to the Roger Williams Zoo, which is a great, smaller zoo.
The owner was great!!! Every time I had a question (which I had plenty of!), she was so quick to respond.
It took some time to get used to the water. Had plenty of bottled water. It could that we are used to city water (and we have filters on our drinking water), the well water there isn't great, but we just used a lot of bottled water that we brought along (there is bottled water provided too, but we did not use it).
This house would be 5 stars once it's complete. But overall, we had a wonderful family vacation, filled with lots of memories, and we all went home feeling rested and calm. My four small children keep talking about, they want to go back!
Great vacation, thanks so much!
