Block Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Hartnett's Bluff House sits above a private rocky beach, close to the surf of the Atlantic Ocean. The house is a new construction (built in 2010 by the owners), cedar-shingled post and beam home that boasts an open concept layout. The main floor is open space flooded with views of the ocean from every angle. It contains a well-appointed kitchen with granite and butcher-block countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is a beautiful dining area with a large granite table that seats 6, and a living area with a comfy sofa and chairs perfect for lounging with friends and family, and gazing out at the ocean sunset. The main floor is complete with a powder room and a quaint seating area perfect for a game of chess or cards.

The upper floor reveals a gorgeous master suite with a heavenly king-size bed overlooking the water. A peaceful on-suite bathroom is complete with double sinks and a classic antique claw foot tub. There is also a cozy sitting area with comfortable chairs, ottomans, and reading lamps perfect for curling up with a book at the end of the day. A separate space off of the master has a small room with two twin beds that can be joined to create a king-sized bed, and makes a great kids room.

The lower floor contains a third bedroom with a queen-size bed with ocean views. The third bathroom is complete with a large open tiled shower, double sinks, and more windows looking out onto acres of rosa rugosa. Guests will also find a bonus entertainment room with a flat-screen TV and an L-shaped sofa which pulls out into a double bed for additional sleeping accommodations. There is also a laundry room with an energy-efficient washer and dryer for guests' convenience. Doors lead out onto a large deck complete with lounge chairs, a BBQ, a cold-water outdoor shower, and hammock, perfect for cooling off and relaxing after a long day at the beach!

Adjacent to the house is the path down to the private rocky beach, an excellent place to surf-cast and catch striped bass and bluefish, hunting for driftwood, shells and beautiful beach stones. Later in the season, this serves as a popular surf spot on the island, and provides a great spot to watch the surfers brave the waves!

The house runs exclusively on solar-power, with a wind-power back up source, and is most suited for the ecologically-minded. We hope this will attract guests who wish to leave a low carbon footprint, and have respect for the conservation of energy and resources. This will ensure the most comfortable and enjoyable stay in our home!

The property is located on the southwest corner of Block Island at the end of a rather long dirt road. The road is usually kept in good condition, which should allow easy access by any car. Since the house is located about 3 miles from town and the swimming beaches, a car is necessary. Due to the location of the property, the home allows for the privacy and tranquility that is most prized on Block Island.

Why The Owner chose Block Island

We built this house on our 10 acre property in 2009/2010. The property itself has been in the family since 1946.

What makes this house unique

Our property is as far as you can get on the island from the crowds in town. It is very peaceful and quiet except for the sound of the surf. Since we are at the end of the road, there is no passing traffic.

Totally Unobstructed Views!

  • of 5
Wow! This home is stunning with totally unobstructed views of the ocean! As many previous reviewers stated, the home and location are even better in person. We spent the majority of our time outside enjoying the incredible views. The floor plan of the home was ideal for our situation. My husband and I had the master bedroom upstairs and the room enclosed within the master bedroom was occupied by our young daughter. Downstairs was occupied by my sister and her boyfriend while his daughter slept on the pull-out couch in the entertainment room. We appreciated that sheets, paper goods, beach chairs/towels and necessities for an infant/toddler were provided. Having a tub in the master bathroom was nice however, the only shower in the home is located on the lower level. Overall, a wonderful experience which we hope to repeat again next year!

Perfect and Worth It

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from our second year vacationing at this stellar home, and we'll be back for a third.
The house has a soaring, open layout with high ceilings, new appliances and commanding, unobstructed views of the ocean in front of you. The location far from town is perfect for those who truly want to escape and hear only the crashing waves, breeze and wildlife. The privacy is amazing, and you feel as if you are far, far away from reality.
Everything you need is there. The beds and furniture are clean and super comfy. The decor is clean , modern and simple. Even with all that this beautiful island has to offer - we are content to just sit in the hammock most days and watch the ocean. And then, of course, the sunsets - the best I have seen anywhere. If there is only one thing I would change, it's the path down to the beach, which is well manicured but only part of the way - so be wearing shoes to manage the thorny bramble down there if you go. Once there you'll find tide pools filled with snails and crabs - fun for the kids.
I can't say enough good things. The owners are very responsive and attentive to all the details without intruding at all.
We cannot wait to go back.

Stunning Home

  • 5 of 5
I agree with the guests below in saying this home is even prettier in person! When you open the door it is breathtaking. The view from the living room looks like you're in a painting, the ocean is in full panoramic view. The upstairs bedroom shares the same view, from your bed. The house is very spacious, well lit and decorated. We actually hosted my sister's engagement weekend here. She was engaged right on the beach outside of the house where both families met. It was an easy walk through a small path, private access and convenient to come and congratulate the couple! The entire family took the most beautiful photos on this beach that we will treasure forever. We had a great lunch and dinner outside using the grill on the patio after. Sitting down to eat with a view of the ocean was something very special. For us, this house was not only a place to stay, but an experience. I recommend this property for a family vacation, special occasion or summer getaway! I think you will feel the same once you see it! It's not very far from town either and very peaceful, highlighting the nature, quiet side of Block Island that we really enjoy!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5
It was such an amazing stay! The owners are so nice and accommodating! The house is like something out of a dream and the pictures just don't do the house justice. Its perfect for any occasion with or without children. I definitely plan on staying there again sometime soon.

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautiful! It offers excellent views, peace and quiet and plenty of space for everyone. We visited off-season to enjoy plenty of space on island before the tourists arrive. Having frequented Block via our personal boat many Summers, I'll say that we really appreciated the on island experience in a great home in a quiet area. I have been researching solar for our home in Ct and this was a perfect fit. The hiking is at your doorstep as is the ocean. What more could you ask for? The owners were very accommodating to our needs and I hope that they will book our visit again in the Fall.

We had a great time at the Hartnett House on Block Island. House is beautiful in the most beautiful location up on the cliff overlooking the ocean. I would recommend it to anyone.
