FRONT ROW VIEWS OF THE SURF

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.

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

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.

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.

Stunning setting

My husband and I and another couple with a 10 month old stayed for the long weekend. The house was perfect for us. we had the couple stay on the bottom floor with the baby and we stayed on the top floor master suite - every room has a stunning view. There is no bad room in the house. the house is much bigger than appears and even nicer than the pictures display. the main (middle) floor is wonderful for dining and just enjoying your company and the magnificent views. There are views from EVERY window in the house. you feel like you are on a boat with all the water views. The backyard deck and hammock were heavenly. It protected us from the breezes of the island that weekend. We saw a surfer one day and a seal another as we were just sitting and watching the horizon. The sunsets, sunrises and moon setting (that i happen to catch at 2am when i woke by accident) were to die for! The path to the beach is wonderful and allowed for nice walks along the beach. The drive to the house was adventurous. Deer everywhere so be careful! The owner(s) could not have been more accommodating with planning our stay. Thank you Erin! i hope to come back next year. One thing that could improve is the grill. And I'd probably bring my own sheets next time.

Gorgeous Location

If you like privacy, nature, direct access to a little-used beach, and beautiful sunsets, this is a wonderful place. The home is lovely, and the kitchen is well equipped. The only negatives were worth putting up with, but we wished we didn't have to: (1) moldy curtains in the bathrooms (2) at the bottom of the path to the ocean, the roses/briars were overgrown, making our treks a bit difficult and painful, and (3) the bedroom on the first floor could use a ceiling fan since the windows don't open.

Beautiful side of Block Island, the house was beautiful, RIGHT OVER THE WATER, views out of every window, quiet & peaceful. The beach here is wonderful to walk on, in any direction. I walked for many hours, every day. It was just what I needed to relax. Wildlife abounds here, watch for the seals sleeping on the beach in the morning! They do own it... This is a wonderful part of Block, that a lot of people visiting the island never see. It is very much work coming to and enjoying, thank you Cully & Erin for letting me stay in your beautiful house.
