This adorable waterfront home has some of the most magnificent views of Rhode Island. After much research for a rental for family members to stay during my wedding, I found this house and began speaking with Diane. Diane was soooo accommodating, thoughtful and organized, making the rental process a breeze. With this home's location and size, it is by far one of the best values in Rhode Island for a beachfront rental. I worked for a realty company in Narragansett for some time and know from first hand that that company charges almost 3x more for a beachfront rental than Diane is charging for her rental. I will forever recommend this property to friends and family. The home was immaculate and beautifully maintained. There are plenty of historic activities and restaurants less than 5 minutes from the home, additionally the location is idea for day trips to Newport, Providence, Block Island, Mystic, Boston, Etc. Thank you, Diane for everything you have done, we could not have asked for a better owner to work with!
We stayed at this lovely home the second week of August, 2011. It was sparkling clean, spacious and very family friendly. The large deck in the backyard and the spacious dining room overlook beautiful Naragansett Bay and a golf course. The views are beautiful, very peaceful and for nature lovers, there is a wealth of wildlife to see. A short bike ride down Naragansett street leads to a bike path where you can go approximately 6 miles round trip.
The location is wonderful for exploring beautiful Rhode Island. We made excursions to Port Judith, Jamestown and Beavertail Lighthouse (gorgeous). We spent a day at Naragansett Beach where my son enjoyed riding the waves but, it wasn't too rough to prevent my elderly in-laws from swimming. We went to historic Wickford and enjoyed lunch at the Tavern on the Sea. Our favorite restaurant, also in Wickford is Duffy's Tavern (excellent seafood and reasonably priced). We ate in the tavern (very casual) and later we noticed a large restaurant section out back but, I don't know if this was open for lunch. They served the largest lobster roll I have ever seen (and I am from New England)!
The lighthouse cruise is a MUST. Ten lighthouses in 95 minutes! The cruise also takes you into Newport harbor where you can see hundreds of sailboats and yachts. It was great seeing RI from the water.
The house was everything the owner said it would be, and more. I fell in love with this home more and more every day of our stay. I would recommend this home in a heartbeat. The owner provided brochures, maps, and a welcoming letter explaining everything you need to know.
We can't wait to go back!
My husband and our two adult daughters stayed at The House on the Bay furing the first week in June. We arrived following the graduation of our eldest dgtr and a whirlwind of activity in the days before. From the moment we walked in the door I knew we had hit the jackpot. This place is everthing as described and MORE. The setting is absolutely beautiful & restful - the kitchen is gourmet deluxe - everything was perfect including the weather (2 - 90* days).
I had been looking forward to this "family vacation" since I first spoke with the owner (Diane) to finalize our plans. She is very accomodating and great to work with. This was our first family get-a-way in a long time and we all agreed that our week together was perfect. We hope to return in the future.
