About James Dring

I live in Newport with my family and have a property manager to help me maintain the cottages. We keep the cottages open year round and I normally respond to emails within 24 hours.

James Dring purchased this cottage in 2007

Why James Dring chose Matunuck

We bought this property because it is beachfront. There are very few properties that are right on a beach in RI. Most are near or close to the beach, but very few that you can step out onto the sand from.

What makes this cottage unique

Again, this is oceanfront/beachfront. You can't get any closer to the ocean than this!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice stay at the cottage. It was clean and bright and the layout was perfect for us. Although it was a bit too chilly to spend much time on the deck we'll be coming back again to enjoy it and the beach right there down the steps.

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

From the start dealing with the owner was great, prompt replies, honest answers to your questions, perfect. On arrival the house was super clean, great job preparing for our arrival. We were given a tour, all the ins and outs of the house, was great. The patio area over looking the beach is great, nice and big, wonderful table and chair, grill, umbrella, all you could ask for, to sit and relax in the morning with your coffee, perfect view to the water and the sunrise or sunset. The private beach is amazing, no large crowds, quiet, and just a few yards down the beach you can pop into the great Ocean Mist restaurant.

We could not ask for more, owner is great, the caretakers are friendly and on top of things. We rent a beach house every year, but we rent in different locations to explore the area, but we may just come here again next year. You will not regret it. Perfect location, perfect size, I loved that it was a full size kitchen, call now to rent you week. Enjoy :)

Thanks Jim, Barry and Lisa

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.

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.
