Scarborough Beach House Rental Photos and Description

CENTRAL AIR: SLEEPS 3 TO 6.

Want a clean, nicely furnished house with a short walk to the beach? You found it! No beach passes needed or parking lot fees to pay as Scarborough Beach is one block (2/10 of a mile) away. You can see the ocean from the front porch steps and the east bedroom and when surf is strong you can hear it from the east bedroom at night.

The bath & kitchen have been modernized. The living room is furnished with comfortable upholstered furniture & our three spacious BR's have Queen size beds and the cottage charm of original wood planked ceilings.

Lots of recent renovations to flooring, lighting and newly redecorated bedrooms compliment the exterior upgrades (new roof, siding, windows and trex deck) made recently.

WE ARE CLOSE TO THE OCEAN AND THE BEACH!

Homeowner managed.: This house is managed and rented by the homeowner, not a rental agency. All communication is direct with the homeowner. Each spring the house is scrubbed. All furniture is moved and bedding and curtains are aired or laundered as appropriate. We check on the house between renters each Saturday for the benefit of the renter leaving and the guest arriving. Yes, we really drive up to RI every week.

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 reservation 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.

We started vacationing at Scarborough at the suggestion of a friend when our children were young. Seized the opportunity when we had a chance to purchase this property.

Originally, the entire interior had panelling on the walls, which over the years we updated. Every surface has been changed since the initial purchase, from roof to siding and windows, floors, lighting, bath and kitchen have all been updated. And did I mention we added central air? We enjoy the positive feedback we get from our guests.

It is said the 3 most important things in real estate are location, location, location. This house definitely has that with a short walk to the beach.

We could probably sit back and let the location do the work for us, but we wanted more, so an updated interior, nice furnishings and squeaky clean are the next 3 things on our most important real estate must have items.

Check out our reviews and see how many guests took the time to say we're getting it done.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2009

We truly enjoyed our stay at the "Lucky Break". What a beautiful cottage!! Fully applianced kitchen made it nice to cook and the side deck was very pleasant to sit in the sun. Walks to the beach and surrounding areas were wonderful. Wish it could have been a bit warmer but we did get to sit on the beach a few hours on Memorial Day. It was heaven. We cooked on the grill and had a great time. The beds were very comfortable. We would recommend this cottage to anyone as it was very comfy and nice. We may decide to return in the fall.

Our Lucky Break

A year ago my family and I planned a vacation to Narraganset and reserved this week at Lucky Break. I must say that this house was everything it was described to be. We walked in and immediately felt at home. The rooms were spotless and spacious. The beds were very comfortable as was the furniture in the living room. Every room has a flat screen TV so everyone could watch their favorite shows but the best was the short two block walk to the beach. The beach is a family place and safe environment for children. My two year old grandson had hours of fun digging in the sand and running in the surf. A short walk from the beach is a cliff walk that runs along the water where a wide assortment of marine life becomes trapped in between the rocks. Great place to meditate and do yoga early in the morning. It is also conveniently located to a wide assortment of restaurants and a short ride to Newport and Providence for those who want more than the beach. I highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a great beach vacation.
Owner's Response: Happy to hear we are doing things right, we work hard to maintain the house and glad it shows.

We love when our guests make happy family memories during their vacation at our home.

Appreciate the kind words.

Perfect for the beach!

Comfortably slept 3 couples. The house is beautifully furnished and extremely clean and well taken care of. You can see the beach from the front of the house and there is access to the beach via a path at the end of the street. A short drive to the local Stop & Shop covers any supplies you may need. All the kitchen basics are available and in great working order, including a washer and a dryer. The deck gets the evening sunshine. Local restaurants are well worth sampling - especially Coast Guard House and Crazy Burger in Narragansett Pier. The landlords were very responsive and helpful. This is a little gem that you should not miss at Scarborough Beach.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice words. This house was a diamond in the rough until we made it shine into the gem it is today.

Fantastic House

This is our second year staying at the Lucky Break and we will definitely be going back again. Just like last year, the house was immaculate when we arrived. The kitchen has everything - plates, utensils, pots, pans, etc. All 3 bedrooms are beautifully decorated and roomy. Each one also has a flat screen tv so everyone can relax a bit and watch their own thing. The deck has a good size table and we love the outdoor shower - perfect for when you get back from the beach.

Just as described, the house is only a short block away from the beach - definitely within walking distance. Our youngest is 7 and she could make it down there easily. Having the beach so close made it easy to head down there early in the morning for a nice walk before starting the day.

Point Judith, Newport, and Jamestown are all close by and even Providence isn't that far of a drive.

I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation at Scarborough. The owners really take care of the place and great to deal with.
Owner's Response: This is why we work so hard to provide a comfortable, clean and beautiful vacation home for our guests, we love the feedback and appreciate the time our guests take to write them.

We've been going to RI for 20+ years and rented many houses. This is the ONLY house we have rented MULTIPLE times! So clean -- would even pass my Italian mother-in-laws standards!! Well appointed and stocked -- yes, this is the ONLY house we've ever encountered that has "starter" supplies -- SO thoughtful! You're centrally located to all the wonderful activities and dining that RI has to offer and best of all SO close to the beach! Quiet neighborhood so you don't have to worry about rowdy neighbors. The owner is so responsive to all communications and promptly (within a week) returns security deposit. The worst thing about writing such a positive review is letting others in on this treasure of a rental. You WON'T be disappointed!!
Owner's Response: {Blushing}. People think owning a beach rental is easy, it isn't if you want to do it right and that is our goal. The hard work is worth it to know people feel so comfortable when in your home and they are creating lasting memories with their families.
We love what we do and appreciate that the work shines through. Thanks for the kind words and taking care of our home while you visit.

Scarborough
Car: recommended

Narragansett has several great beaches to explore. Scarborough (which is the closest to the house at 2/10 mile) offers body surfing and boogie-board riding on it's rolling surf. This is a state beach. It has concession stands & bath house with toilets.

Roger Wheeler Beach (also known as Sand Hill Cove) is two miles away, has gentler waves for the timid and a playground for the toddlers. Narragansett Town Beach is approx. one mile away.

The relatively flat area is great for bike riding, walking or jogging.

Deep sea fishing charters, the Block Island Ferry and fish markets are a 5 minute car ride away in the fishing port called Galilee. Explore Newport and tour the mansions or walk the cobblestone wharfs, approx 20 minute drive away.

Shopping and restaurants galore! Nearby the house are many family and upscale restaurants, as well as supermarkets, ice cream parlors, movie theatres and a bowling alley. Adventureland offers batting cages, go-carts and minigolf to keep the kids happy.
