About Judy & Richard Marusa
High school sweethearts with 3 grandchildren and a life long interest in real estate and traveling, we decided to combine both interests into one!
We have a terrific partnership, with one of us as booking manager and the other we call the maintenance department.
To better understand what makes a rental property stand out, we have rented other properties while on our own vacations and use that knowledge to improve our guests vacation experience.
Please take a moment to read our property reviews and we think you'll agree we are exceeding our goal.
We are happy to share our vacation home and please feel free to call or email with any questions.
Judy & Richard Marusa purchased this house in 2004
Why Judy & Richard Marusa chose Scarborough Beach
A diamond in rough, we were excited to get the house polished up as we could see the potential. Beginning with the purchase, we immediately made improvements and continue each year to remodel, repaint and re-decorate.
Our repeat guests often remark that they are excited to return to see what changes have been made.
Our plantings in the rear yard are beginning to give us the privacy we desired. Our initial vision of the potential of the property has come to life.
What makes this house unique
What makes our home unique is how much we care. Maintaining the property and furnishings is no easy task in a vacation home, but it is the number one focus for us.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"This house is absolutely beautiful with all the comforts of home. we loved staying there. everything is spotless and beautifully decorated. All is updated with many extras. Lots of space, beach cart, outdoor shower and key pad for garage which we found very convenient.
Beautifully landscaped yard with gas grill and fire pit. Very nice to come back from the beach and sit ouside to relax.
When we come to RI again, we will stay here and I certainly recommend this home to anyone staying in Narragansett."
