Dear Barb and Ed,
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay here. The accommodations were very comfortable and the location was great! We also loved the outdoor deck – it’s great. We plan on returning next year! Thanks again.
My husband, Ed, and I finally took the plunge - sold our house north of Boston and are now residents of Middletown, RI as of August 2013! We've been married 49 years. We have two children, six grandchildren, one great grandson and two Mini Schnauzers. I have a wonderful mother-in-law, who grew up in Newport and loves to spend time with us when she can.
We have been vacationing in Newport for many years and decided it was time to purchase our own 'Seaside Escape'! We thoroughly enjoy all that Newport has to offer. Our children and grandchildren enjoy Newport as much as we do, and we know we will have frequent visitors when we finally do retire!
This sunny apartment is close enough to walk, bike or ride to all of the wonderful activities in and around Newport, including both First and Second Beaches. Located next to St. George's School, this location offers an escape from the crowds and tourists at the end of the day. It has a beautiful yard our renters can enjoy for grilling and relaxing and a deck/balcony off the master bedroom.
Volleyball on First Beach, bird watching at Sachuest Point Wildlife Refuge and Norman Bird Sanctuary, wine tasting and tours at nearby Newport Vineyards, kite flying at Brenton Point State Park on Ocean Drive, concerts at Sweet Berry Farm, and Kings Park in Newport, Yoga in the park and on the beach, parades and ceremonys, ethnic festivals.
