Overview

Newport Apartment Rental Photos and Description

This two bedroom apartment is just blocks from Easton's Beach and Bellevue Avenue shopping, restaurants and museums. Set in the quiet 'Top of the Hill' neighborhood of stately Victorians, this rental offers 900 sq. ft. of light and airy living space with off street parking, separate entry and side yard. This property was completely renovated in 2008. Park your car and stroll into town, where you can take advantage of the trolley car system to get you to any of the local attractions.

Things to do: Newport has a wealth of outdoor activities, but rainy days can be fun too. There is excellent sailing in the harbor; you can rent small sailboats at Sail Newport or enjoy a sunset cruise on some of the larger yachts. Kayaks are available for rent down on Thames street to take out in the harbor or to some of the inlets off Ocean Drive. Beaches abound along Ocean Drive; Easton's beach (1st) is just 5 blocks from the house and Middletown's beautiful 2nd beach is a short bike or car ride. Hiking and bird watching is available at Norman's Bird Sanctuary and the famed Cliff Walk begins about 5 blocks from the house. Lots of people like to bike the Ocean Dive (8 miles long) or up Indian Avenue along the Sakonnet River. On rainy days, one can visit the mansions along Bellevue Avenue, the Newport Art Museum, Touro Synagogue, Redwood Library, Museum of Yachting or just go shopping on Bellevue or down by the wharfs. If you are a history buff, the Historical Society has walking tours or the owners can lend you an AIA copy of self guided tours. The owners will be glad to recommend the best restaurants depending on your budget. There is a local theater and a cabaret, many art galleries and a movie theater in Washington Square (about a half mile away). Almost every weekend there is a festival or food fair either in Touro Park or down by the yachting center. It is hard to get bored in Newport!

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

We love HomeAway and have not been disappointed yet! The apartment is just as described. Comfortable clean and well appointed, close to all the wharf action and Easton's beach! Easy to get around from this location and a great value as well. Peter and Gale were so nice to deal with. We absolutely will return. Newport is a great place!

PERFECT VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We were traveling with our two teenage kids and spent 5 days in Newport. The apartment is exactly as shown and described: it is bright, spacious, very tastefully decorated and spotless. We felt at home right from the beginning!
In many details you can still feel the charm of the 19. century (the house, now professionally remodeled, was originally built in 1887) but at the same time you can enjoy all the modern equipment you need for vacation including a brand new kitchen, air condition, wifi, ...
The location is not only quiet but also very close to shops, restaurants and two beautiful beaches! For us it turned out to be a perfectly relaxing break in between our city trips to Chicago and New York City.
Thank you, Gale and Peter, for sharing part of your beautiful house with vacationists like us!

great place!!!

  • 5 of 5
This rental was great!!! Very clean, and neat and well appointed. Attention to detail with decorating and amenities. So many things make this historic home appealing....from the plank flooring to curved windows in front bedroom. Plenty of room for four adults. The extra things they had available. ie beach chairs, bikes, grill made it so easy to get around and make the place feel like home. Would definitely return to Gale and Peter's home on next visit to Newport.

Vielen Dank Gale und Peter

Wir waren mit unseren beiden Töchtern im Mai 2014 Gäste bei Gale und Peter.
Das Apartment war genauso schön wie beschrieben und wunderbar ausgestattet.
Die tollen Tipps für Touren, Restaurants und die Informationen zu den Attraktionen und Vorzügen der Region waren absolut hilfreich.
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit, haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Wohnung nur weiterempfehlen.
Viele Grüße
Christina und Martin

Great location in a quiet neighborhood but still close to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Very clean, bright and spacious apartment and a nice private outdoor space. The rental includes two bicyles which came in handy to get around town and to the beaches. The owners were very helpful in providing directions to get around town without getting on the busier streets. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Accommodation – Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this accommodation for just shy of two weeks in October 2012 - it was fantastic and we were very impressed. The apartment itself is generously proportioned with large living space and very comfortable bedrooms. The entire place was spotlessly clean, the décor was beautiful and it was also very well equipped with cooking equipment, books, TV, wireless internet access etc.

The property is well located, being just a short walk to either the main tourist areas of Newport or the more local areas. This was a great advantage as it meant that we could sightsee and do the touristy things when we wanted to but we could also enjoy the many local restaurants and bars. The street on which the accommodation is located is also beautiful and it felt safe and secure.

The property owners were definitely the highlight of this trip. They struck a great balance between being available when needed but also being absolutely invisible so that you could be relaxed in an apartment that is effectively the top floor of their house. Gale and Peter were warm and made a real effort to make us welcome in both the accommodation and also in Newport, offering great suggestions for sightseeing and eating out.

Were there any downsides to our trip? Just one… it wasn’t long enough!
