Location and luxury

This was a perfect location for two active couples who enjoy walking, exploring the town, and dining out. It is walking distance from the dock where ferries leave from, from where historical tours begin, and from many restaurants. Given the kinds of activities we enjoy, it was great to be able to leave the car parked all week. The house itself is very comfortable, well equipped, and beautifully appointed. The rooftop deck and the great room are wonderful spots to relax at the end of the day. Helen is a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend the home to like-minded visitors to Newport.

This home was beautiful! My husband and I, along with our grown children enjoyed everything about this wonderfully renovated home. We loved the well- stocked kitchen with the huge island that was open to the family room. We enjoyed the huge rooftop deck for relaxing with cocktails and grilling. We found ourselves eating in more than we usually do because we wanted to enjoy this great home! The butler's pantry off of the deck was so unique - we used it all the time! The location of the home is perfect - we walked to the wharfs, restaurants and shops. Our cars were parked most of the time! We have rented many nice homes for summer vacations in previous years but nothing compares to Helen's beautifully decorated home that our family had the pleasure of enjoying this summer :-)

We've been vacationing in Newport for 15 years - and staying in this home was a vacation on its own! If we didn't do anything but enjoy this home it would have been a wonderful vacation. So beautiful and luxurious, yet extremely comfortable. All the amenities you'd want in a house, with all the "wish list" items you may want for your own home. The owner has anticipated anything you may want or need, and then some! Helen Harris clearly wants you to enjoy her home, and have a great time in the beautiful Newport location. Each time we visit, we learn of a new restaurant, or shop, or place to "be" to enjoy. However, we stayed in several nights just to cook and enjoy each other's company and the gorgeous home! Thank you, Ms. Harris, for the opportunity to experience Newport from your home!

FANTASTIC LOCALE - AMAZING TIME!

Cannot say enough about this property - not only perfectly located (we parked around the corner and didn't use the car for our entire stay) but so modern and comfortable. The rooftop deck was the icing (literally) on this lovely cake! The trolley stops right outside the front door and there was easy walking to shopping and great restaurants. The owner supplied endless information on all things Newport! Her son did all the custom carpentry in this home and now owns a terrific restaurant on Spring Street where we shared a great lunch and talk with the family. We enjoyed hearing the stories about the remodeling of this marvelous home. Clean, neat, beautifully decorated with very updated bathrooms and kitchen. Couldn't ask for a better girls' getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jackie and Laurie it was a pleasure to have you as guests in my home and I appreciate that you took such good care of my home.
I'm really glad you got to experience the many aspects of Newport. My family certainly enjoyed sharing time with you both at their cafe Rosemary&Thyme. I hope that if you return in the future you'll choose to stay at my home, you are always welcome. Helen
