Fabulous Ocean Front Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This small cottage attached to main quarters at Charlestown Beach is perfect for a couple. The porch overlooks a private beach and the view is absolutely stunning. The cottage is equipped with everything you need -- including homemade bread and a bottle of wine -- to make your stay absolutely perfect. Swim, fish or bask in the sun on your own private beach and enjoy your vacation in a luxurious way. Close to shopping and entertainment, this cottage has it all.

Stunning Labor Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We arrived for a long labor day weekend....5 couples.

There is no better property for view, location and access to your private beach. The bunk bed rooms were small. There is a large master bedroom upstairs. Each floor has a full bath. The attached apartment has a full stocked kitchen, full bath, a bed bunk room and another with double bed. We had great weather so most of our time was spent on the deck/beach. There is nothing missing from this rental. The property was clean & maintained. We would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: So nice to hear you enjoyed your SEASIDE vacation. A family that plays together, stays together! I hope you return! Having the soft, sandy private beach at your doorstep...makes it so easy to go from the cottage to the beach... Especially with children or older adults! You put it to good use with the volley ball net! SEASIDE fun! Stay happy and healthy!

Awesome end of summer weekend

  • 4 of 5

What an Awesome house. Location is great, cant get any better then on the beach. There was plenty of room for all in my party. The description was right on point and the Owner's response to my questions was immediate. We rented the entire house for the weekend and it worked out perfect. You can tell how much the owner cares because of the wonderful updated floors are beautifule and the couches are comfortable and best of all listening to the waves crashing while you fall asleep. It's location is convienent to the taste of Mystic and Point Judith. After the first shower you learn not to open you mouth or eyes( you are on the ocean) but other than that it was a wondrful weekend in a beautiful house. Cant wait for next year. Thanks

Owner's Response: We now have fresh water!!! Hurricane Sandy claimed our now town water is brought in! I rather enjoyed the saltyish showers, but for dishes it was time consuming to get the water from the dispenser in the kitchen for rinsing and flowers. So glad you loved it as much as we do. The sound of the surf, the sand in your toes, the ocean breezes, the view, and the privacy is what drew us to it the first day we saw it! A great place to relax and get your energy back! The ocean has a way of doing that! Hope to see you again....SEASIDE!

A true seaside cottage

  • 4 of 5

Desparate to get to the beach, I inquired about this property since I wasn't sure how many people/families from my group would be going and the ad said sleeps 4-12. Well, lucky for us the side for 4 was open! (Who knew we'd be lucky enough to be at the beach?!) Because the owner was so accomodating we were able to pull off a wonderful 3 days right on Charlestown Beach in her little beach cottage.

I just read the other reviews and can confirm the location, location, location! Also I just saw the recommendation for the Matunuck Oyster Bar. Luckily we found that on our own and had a great meal in spite of the pouring rain (entrees got soaked upon delivery, but were still good). We saw a terrific "light show" and fortunately recieved our meal prior to the restaurant losing power. We were glad we had power at the house when we returned! Also glad the "master" bedroom had a ceiling fan and more glad we brought a small one from home. I suggest you bring one because if you have to close the windows due to rain, it does get pretty stuffy, otherwise there is a great breeze!

Having just gotten a smaller car, we were thrilled beach chairs and umbrellas were found right under the house en route to the beach and when done with them you drop them off right next to the outdoor shower! Yep, the shower is salty, A new experience but not terrible. I guess it could be handy if you have a sore throat. We noticed no smells expect the fabulous salt air. Our last night we "took out" food from the Breachway Grille. Half of it was ready before the rest, and we had to wait so some items didn't travel as well as others, but overall it was very good. I bet if you ate there it would have been even better. For us, we were having such a terrific beach day and early evening we chose to stay on the deck, so a little soggy food, was worth it!

If you are willing to sacrifice some space* for location on a terrific beach, rent this cottage.

*We were 2 adults and 2 grown kids with another visiting for the day. It's perfect if the weather is good, cozy if it isn't. It's probably ideal for a couple with small children.

Owner's Response: Soooo glad you enjoyed your stay! SEASIDE is now, no longer salty!! We have town water brought the ocean stays on the beach!! It is a wonderful place to just relax, and soak in Mother Nature at its BEST! Sun, sand, surf... ocean breezes....and YOU!! Hope to see you next year...SEASIDE!

Family Fun!

  • 4 of 5

This worked out perfectly for our family! We brought our two children, their spouses and and 3 grandchildren. The deck overlooking the ocean was perfect - you can't find a better view in any restaurant so we really enjoyed eating dinner on the deck (when we weren't at the Matunick Oyster Bar). We rented both sides of the house so we could have privacy. The location is also great as the mini supermarket had everything you need and was close by with no traffic to get there. A lot easier for us coming from CT than going to the Cape. Great waves and the water was warmer too. The outdoor shower was perfect - I don't think anyone used the indoor showers at all! As one reviewer noted, the water is salty, but there was plenty of Poland Springs provided and to be expected if you are this close to the beach. The bedrooms were small, but the open living/kitchen/dining area was roomy enough for all of us. The stairs are steep, so we brought gates to block the toddlers' access. It is an older cottage so doesn't have all the brand new construction amenities but the beautiful location more than made up for that!

Owner's Response: SEASIDE is the perfect location to just sit back and enjoy the sand, surf and sun, so I was very happy to see that you were able to do that. It is very nice to have everything close, so you can spend your time at the cottage and not off traveling, and wasting "beach time". The beach is also a wonderful walking beach, for those late afternoon strolls. I agree the outside shower is what makes a summer vacation. I actually designed the cottage myself, And tried to make the living area as large as possible, so the bedrooms are small, but in the summer, you are only there to sleep. There is a door that can lock at the foot of the stairs, so little ones do not have access to the stairs. We have worked each year on "re-doing" different areas of the cottage. Last year it was all new windows. Next year we will have a new project, as the ocean brings harsh winter weather...but we are very proud of our cottage and strive to keep it in the best condition. There are many wonderful restaurants, but you did hit on the most popular one, THE MATUNUCK OYSTER BAR. the food is amazing and fresh from the waters that the restaurant sits on. Fantastic sunsets....which are also outstanding at SEASIDE! I hope you took lots of pictures, as a beach vacation is a place to re-energize and the pictures will bring back that feeling throughout the remainder of the seasons, until you " are lucky enough to be at the beach!". Thanks for the care of our little slice of heaven!

RIGHT ON THE BEACH...AND Just a few steps away, and you can swim in the ocean,RELAX on the off the bridge or rent a boat and go out for the day in the ocean or the saltwater inlets. Small restaurant just a little up the road. Kids love to feel 'independant' and walk over for a drink or lunch 'on their own'! If you want to leave the beach, there are many restaurants, New England waterfront villages or parks close by. Monthly events include Art Shows, The Big Circus, Chowder Festival etc. The Yatching towns of Newport, Wickford and Watch Hill have great shops, restaurants and 'boat watching'. The Fox Woods Casino is 20 minutes away for shows and great dinners and gambling. Being in R.I. everything is close! There are lakes, natural reserves, flea markets and antique stores. The very best is the beaches, and you have one of the best right in front of the cottage! Ninigret Park offers gentle surf, clear blue water, sugary sand, and an unspoiled barrier beach. 4000 acres of wildlife sanctuaries, a new playground, fishing access, trails, swimming, tennis, bike paths etc. this is just a few minutes away. A nice change for a day, but still enjoying the ocean and nature.

We have it all! BUT...YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO DRAG YOURSELF AWAY FROM 'SEASIDE'. The sunset and sunrise is outstanding...and the peacefulness of the cottage is swept up in the sound of the surf. Nice to nod off to sleep to. We have water brought in, as Hurricane Sandy destroyed our well, so we request that you are conservative with the water. It is town water .

There is a GREAT little deli/ sandwich shop, at the beginning of the road, a bakery, ice cream shop and a wonderful fresh fruit and vegetable store.

About 5 min away is the Charlestown Mini Super. Wonderful fresh fish, chowder, fresh made bread and pizza, great meats and soups.and just about anything you forgot when shopping. Breakfast sandwiches are wonderful!

Our 'SEASIDE' cottage, is set up and ready for your arrival. The fact that you are right on the beach, allows you to be there most of the time. If you have beach games, bring them with you and set it up on the beach! The deck is nice for the late afternoons, when you want to cool off and relax with a beverage, snack or book. Deck has chairs, table, umbrella and lounge. I have had the cottage for over 30 years and it is a little piece of 'seaside' heaven. The key will be on the table, door unlocked.... we are ready when you are! Ninigret Park is just down the street and offers a new playground, fishing access, nature trails, swimming lagoon, tennis courts, etc. A great change for a day away from the beach...but still outside with nature! Also Block Island is a great day trip, or Galilee, Newport, Watch Hill, Narragansett. The seaside villages are everywhere! For an evening out, Foxwoods is 20 min. away. I think the deck offers a better night out, with the surf and stars
