We LOVED this beach rental - the house was more than promised - super amenities, clean, well stocked, beautifully decorated and had everything you could possibly need (beach chairs, towels, spices, cooking supplies, toiletries, cribs, etc.), you can leave a lot at home if you stay here! We vacationed with three families here and the two separate units worked wonderfully. We had kids ranging in age from 18 months to 9 years old and the layout was perfect - house was well decorated but not hard to quickly childproof for the younger one(s) by moving a few things out of reach. Enough TV's - dvd's - vcr tapes to satisfy movie junkies w/ an excellent assortment for the kids to choose from. The beach is about a 10 minute walk away but an easy drive and it was crowded in early to mid-August when we were there. We would definitely return and loved our time spent in RI in this house.
