This 2100 square foot house was built as a residence for the builder so the rooms are large and set up very nicely. (this isn't your typical beach rental with small bedrooms, mini fridges, cheap furniture, etc! Notice how many house smaller than ours boast SIX bedrooms??) Upstairs there are four good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed, 1/2 bath, very large closets, TV and a ceiling fan. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have queen size beds, ceiling fans and large closets. Bedroom 4 has a double bed, a large closet and a ceiling fan. All bedrooms have bureaus, nightstands, mirrors and other assorted furniture. Also upstairs is a full size bath with tub and shower.
Downstairs features a full size eat in kitchen with refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, dishes, silverware and glassware as well as pots, pans and kitchen gadgets. The kitchen also has a ceiling fan and overlooks the backyard. There is a large pantry in the kitchen to store dry goods and other assorted items during your stay.
The dining room has a table that seats 8 and engineered hardwood floors. The living room has leather oversized chairs, a couch, coffee table, carpeting and other furniture for a relaxing environment. The family room is carpeted with a leather couch, leather chairs, leather ottomans, coffee tables and a 52' HD flat screen TV which has free cable. Also downstairs is a 1/2 bath with shower and a full size washer and dryer. Lastly, there is a large closet for storage downstairs.
The house comes with free weekly garbage pickup from inside the attached garage. Also for your enjoyment is a propane gas grill, a charcoal grill, an outside hot/cold shower to wash off when returning from the beach, a private backyard with a patio off the family room which has a table and chairs to enjoy your grilled dinner outside. The backyard is surrounded by trees along the back, a stockade fence on one side and a smaller fence and tall shrubs on the other. Of course we are surrounded by wonderful neighbors!
The house is short WALK to Scarborough State Beach, the nicest and largest state beach in Rhode Island. Scarborough State Beach has beautiful soft sand on the beach, hard sandy bottom in the ocean with great waves for adults and kids alike. The beach also features plenty of lifeguards, bathrooms, showers, food, and plenty of parking if you choose to drive to the beach rather than walk. The 'drive' will take less than one minute to the parking lot from our driveway! The house is also located a very short drive to several other beaches including Roger Wheeler State Beach (aka Sand Hill Cove)(5 minutes away), Salty Brine State Beach (5 minutes away, Narragansett Town Beach next to the world famous Towers of Narragansett (8 minutes away), and East Matunuck State Beach (12 minutes away). This house is all about the great location for summer fun!
You can also take a short 20 minute drive and be in Newport and it's mansions and wonderful shopping and site seeing. A 30 minute drive gets you to the 'Renaissance City', Providence. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!

Sandy and I are active professionals that love traveling and enjoying our time away from home. I grew up in Rhode Island and knew exactly where to buy our second home as this is where I want to be in the summer, Scarborough Beach. Sandy and I met when I moved for work to Tennessee but after living there for four years, I realized I was too far away from the great shores of Rhode Island so I convinced Sandy to pack up and move north. We enjoy vacationing in beach locations and know that everyone will enjoy our beach home.
Sandy and I purchased this home in 2007 as our daughter was attending the University of Rhode Island, five miles away. She moved in and lived there with 3 other girls for 2 years during the school year (September thru May) and then we've rented out the house from June thru Labor Day in September when we aren't using it. The location was determined by my knowledge of Rhode Island and where everyone wants to be in the summer, at Scarborough Beach.
We love our home because of the closeness to EVERYTHING in the summer. We walk to the beach, we walk around the neighborhood and we take short bike rides to markets, other beach spots, the fishing village of Galilee and the Block Island Ferry. The neighbors are always great and even if you're only there a week, you'll meet some friends that will last after your stay is over.
