WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place to enjoy and relax while away from the shopping madness of Thanksgiving weekend, boy was this it!! The cottage is RIGHT ON the ocean. It was clean and welcoming, any questions are responded to quickly by owner and Manager. Ocean sounds lull you to relax (but WIFI is excellent). Groceries, Bars, within walking distance fine dining within 5 min drive. First night there got hit by a strong Nor'easter and man was it the coolest thing to see....We will be repeat customers..

MORE THAN WE COULD ASK FOR

  • 5 of 5
What can I say other than my wife and I truly love it here – and have been back for the past five years because we love it so much. The house is impeccably kept and extremely clean / well maintained. Every year there has been an upgrade made that makes the experience that much nicer (new sliding doors & screens, new bathroom, new deck, etc). Fully equipped kitchen, spacious living room, DOG FRIENDLY (!!!!) and all the extras one could possibly need for a week at the beach. And when it says on the beach it means ON THE BEACH – in just a few steps you go from the deck to the Atlantic Ocean. Honestly Jim & his crew far and away exceed every expectation my family has each time we visit. And yes, my whole family now visits as well – my sisters & their families as well as my wife’s sisters & their families have all visited on their own since we first found this place back in 2008. Great nearby restaurants make the vacation that much more enjoyable – especially the pizza place across the street (peeps from Brooklyn!), the Matunuck Oyster Bar just up the road and Spain in Narragansett. As long as we are able, our family will return every year to this truly amazing place.

VACATION HOME 181801

  • 5 of 5
The house in Matunuck was perfect. Jim the owner is always wonderful to work with and has done a great job with this unit. I have stayed there for the last three years during the summer and every year I can see how well maintained it is. Last year there was a new beautiful bathroom and this year a new deck. The deck and view is the best on the beach. The house is walking distance from restaurants and fun beach bars but the house and beach are quite and peaceful. Conveniently located to grocery store, ice cream store and public beach. House is well stocked and easy to live in. I can't wait until my next summer in Matunuck in this lovely home.

GREAT VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Where to begin....we love it here so much we have been coming back now for 4 years. After the first year we increased our stay to 2 weeks because one was not long enough. The place is well maintained, exceptionally clean, and comfortable and has all the amenities you could ask for plus it's dog friendly. As any dog owner knows it's not easy finding unusually well maintained places to vacation that allow dogs. I like to entertain a lot while I am here and the kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary gadgets. The owner is great to deal with and is remarkably responsive to any problem. We love having our own private beach and the views from the deck are amazing. Within walking distance there is a great little Irish Pub that offers live music and a roof top deck where well behaved dogs are welcome to join you for drinks or dinner. Next door to the pub is a fun beach bar/restaurant. It’s a nice place to meet up with friends for a drink and lunch or dinner. They are also well known for their Sunday brunch. The line waiting to get in will attest to the good food. When the sun sets they have live music in the bar. Last year a new pizza place opened up across the street offering real brick oven pizza and there is also a yummy ice cream parlor within walking distance. If you want to take a day trip you have Newport or Block Island close by. We definitely recommend this place and look forward to coming back next year.

WISH IT WAS OURS!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We love this beach house!!!! We go as often as possible. Great view of a wonderful clean, sometimes wild, sometimes calm sea. Everything is available at the house for a great stay, clean and up to date!!!! Try the fig brick oven pizza across the street, or the fish and chips at the little Seaview restaurant/store. Always a hard to time to leave it, that's why we go so often!!! Can't wait to go back there in October.
We defintely recommend this house.

OUR STAY WAS NOT ENJOYABLE

  • 1 of 5
The home we stayed in was not clean. The home was in desrepair. The home had broken screens, and the front door did not close. The beach was not clean even though it is a private beach. The restaurants in the area were not clean nor did they have a family friendly interaction/.
There was no laundry in the home, and the coin operated laundry mate was not clean or working.
we will not reccomend this home.

Owner's Response: Wow, I don’t even know where to start with this one, but I’ll try and start at their arrival. They arrived about 2 hours before their scheduled check in and sent a text that the screens were ripped. After that they didn’t return any calls or texts and weren’t at the cottage when our property manager arrived to check them in and do a walkthrough.

I’ll try to address their review one item at a time. The screens weren’t ripped, they slide up and down on track and sand gets in the track and sometimes they come off. It took 30 seconds to fix. In an email to me, they said that the cottage was in disrepair because the ceiling fans didn’t work. They say that they tried every switch and couldn’t find one that controlled the fan. The fans are run by a remote control that is in a holder by the door. If they had arrived and met our property manager, he would have gone over that. The fans do work…you just need the proper remote. As for the door not closing…this is news to me. The door closed before they arrived and it closes now. I did explain that being so close to the ocean, things swell from the moisture and it sometimes might stick. That’s what happens when you are on a beach.

The cottage was professionally cleaned before they arrived and the beach does get dirty. The tide goes in and out twice a day and it can bring seaweed, crabs, shells and occasionally a dead fish or two. It’s the ocean and is not a pool at the Ritz
.
We’ve spent thousands of dollars on a new deck, new bath, updated kitchen, new windows and other updates. It is not in disrepair or dirty. I have no clue what these people are talking about.

As for not being family friendly, it’s all families. Almost every person who rents is a family and the neighborhood has families with children everywhere. As far as the restaurants not being clean, my guess is these people never went in any restaurants and besides, it has nothing to do with my cottage.

The only thing that I agree with is that the washer was broken. The pump broke and I ordered a new one and put it in when the part arrived. I then cleaned the laundry room and it was as good as new. If they met the property manager, he would have told them that it would be fixed in a day or two.

From mid-June to early September, I have only 4 guests who were not repeat guests at this cottage. Between the repeat guests and all the 5 star reviews that we have, we are obviously doing something right.
