My husband and I enjoyed 2 weeks of heaven in this lovely home. Walk to the beach or relax on the spacious decks that surround the house. Waking up every morning to the sunrise and sitting on the deck at dusk admiring the beautiful gardens in the yard. Very clean and well stocked rental. Owners were friendly and accommodating but non-intrustive. The lovely vases of fresh cut flowers in each room upon arrival was a nice surprise. Would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway.

Matunuck vibe

  • 5 of 5
Your home proved to be a wonderful respite and haven from our usually hectic life as restaurant owners. Soothing colors and furnishings, wonderful wildlife, awesome gardens and flowers, the peaceful marshland sanctuary along with the Matunuck vibe = perfection ! Thank you for your hospitality and all the touches that made our stay so relaxing.

Lovely beach cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the first time for a week in August, and absolutely loved this home. It is a lovely beach cottage - very well maintained and clean with breathtaking views of a marshland and a gorgeous garden maintained by the owner.

When we arrived the owner had vases of fresh flowers from the garden all over the house, and everything was in working order. The house is down a small dirt road so it's very quiet, and the front of the house (complete with wraparound porch) overlooks a marsh so it's incredibly peaceful. There was construction on a house across the street about midway through the week which was a bit loud, but I assume that will wrap up by next summer.

The house has good amenities - grill, beach toys for kids, a fully stocked kitchen as far as cooking utensils go - and is only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. The beach is expensive to park ($20/day) so plan to walk there unless you want to pay, it really is an easy walk though. There's also an ice cream shop right next to the entrance to the beach and a corner market for food staples.

The owner was great. She called to check in after we arrived and to make sure everything was ok, and we felt like she was available if we needed to reach her. We're already planning a trip back next summer, this home is a find!

Lovely Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My family visits Matunuck and this wonderful little cottage in particular every year. Although I live out of state now, I grew up in Rhode Island and know the Matunuck community. Take it from a native Rhode Islander, this cottage is ideally placed; quiet, and borders a gorgeous wildlife marsh and the owner's perennial gardens. The town beach is a 10 minute walk. The bigger and very popular state beach is a 10 minute bike ride via beach roadways. Matunuck is a quaint little beach community and has remained unchanged for generations. Upon arrival you will find an extremely clean and welcoming cottage. The owners take great pride in welcoming guests and providing for comfort. The upstairs master suite with queen bed, bath and deck is a welcoming respite for parents. Two bedrooms downstairs with a shared bath give privacy to two children. As is typical of these types of cottages, the downstairs is an open floor plan - dining, family/TV and kitchen area together. A full laundry is also provided, as is a very convenient outdoor private shower. The wrap-around porch with its lush and carefully tended potted plants, overlook the marsh and gardens. We have spent many hours birdwatching,reading and napping there. Visitors are close to ferry service to Block Island (a tourist must!), Wakefield with its wonderful restaurants, the fishing village of Galilee, and 35 min. from Newport. Allow us to encourage your stay, despite the fact that we wish we could keep this secret to ourselves!! Leslie M., South Carolina

Just a perfect (holi)day

  • 5 of 5
What a joy it was to have our vacation in such a charming, well equiped and maintained beach home. The owners make you feel very welcome at arrival and after that, it's easy to keep in touch in case you might need them. We stayed here for four(!) weeks and explored Rhode Island, parts of Connecticut and visited Boston and New York City. When we returned from these cities everytime it really felt like coming home again! The house is spacious (and a master bedroom with a stonishing view on the moor and a daily sunrise to dream of) and still very cousy. We were very lucky with the weather throughout september: after a week of nineties the temperature stayed between 70 and 80 Fahrenheit. Hardly no rain, so it couldn't be better. The beach is just a ten minutes walk and 2 minutes by car if you want to carry all your important beach stuff with you (also available in the house). People who love birds and rabbits (and who doesn't?) stay here on the front seat!
This was really one of best vacations ever and if we have to make one point of criticism, then that would be the presence of many naughty mosquitos. Fortunately they didn't fly up to the porch at the first floor, so we always were assured of a mosquito-free seat somewhere around the house.
And for all of those who doubt whether renting this house or not: just do it and we can't imagine that you would be disappointed!

A Serene Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This rental was the perfect beach home that everyone imagines. The quiet but friendly neighborhood, beautiful yard, wildlife, and porches made it a very peaceful and relaxing spot. The house is very well kept and the upstair's bedroom is amazing...a very romantic, beautiful loft. This is definitely a perfect spot if you want to unwind and enjoy a quaint beach community. Great place!
