The House. It is an elegant period (1875) home full of light, high ceilings, wood floors, modern kitchen with new appliances, including a wet bar and wine cooler, and a sunlit, separate dining area.

The top floor has two bedrooms( (two double beds and two singles) and a shared bathroom, ideal for children and young people.

Set well back from the street and screened by a high privet hedge, the house is a quiet haven in a busy town. The yard is private and prettily landscaped. There is room in the driveway for up to five cars, and on-street parking is free and unrestricted.
There are four good restaurants on Broadway at the bottom of our street, a mere three minutes walk.The popular Irish Fastnet pub and the historic Jane Pickens movie theater are a few minutes further on, as is Thames Street, with its shops, restaurants, and pubs. The Viking Hotel and Bellevue Avebue are just down the road. The harbor is also within walking distance, which means you can stroll down there and buy lobsters and clams off the boats that caught them, shop and have a meal at one of the many dock-front restaurants, or take a boat tour around Narrangansett Bay.
Minutes away by car are a fine selection of Atlantic Ocean beaches, the Tennis Hall of Fame, the Bellevue Avenue mansions, and a convenient shopping plaza. There is an excellent 18-hole golf course at the Newport National Golf Club, another short ride away.
Newport's summer season features the renowned Classical, Jazz, and Folk Festivals, tournaments and inductions at the Tennis Hall of Fame, and several notable yacht races.

Apart from the pleasure of staying in an elegant and comfortable house, the greatest joy is being able to step outside and walk through Newport's ancient streets to most of the city's attractions. The house is in the historic Kay Street District so, whichever way you turn, there are lovely old homes, tall, shady trees, and flowering gardens to accompany you on your journey. No need to fight for a parking space, or risk picking up a ticket. Enjoy the street life of a lively and virbant city in its summer finery.

Staying at this beautifully restored Victorian home was an awesome experience. It is even more charming in person and has everything you would need at your fingertips. The house is conveniently located with easy access to downtown, the harbor and the mansions and is situated on a lovely, quiet residential street. There is plenty of room for family gatherings - there were 8 of us - and lots of delightful nooks and crannies in which to find some personal space The owner, John is so accommodating and made our long weekend stay a pleasure. We are looking forward to a return trip next year.
Like other reviewers, we, too, were extremely happy with our week's stay for our family reunion. All were pleased with the size and layout of this lovely Victorian home. We found it pleasant to cook together in the large well-appointed kitchen and then gather on the back deck each evening for dinner and conversation . It was the perfect place for our family's retreat.
We rented this house for a family reunion. Since the Providence airport is not far away, family flew in and had little difficulty arriving at the house, as there is a hotel shuttle as well as a bus into Newport. The Amtrak train station is a half hour drive.
The house is ideally located, within walking distance of the main tourist area yet in a quiet residential neighborhood. A trolley stop is nearby and local restaurants a short walk away. The house easily housed nine of us and we all had our own space yet there were wonderful gathering areas for family dinners and games.
John, the owner, could not have been more hospitable. He allowed us to view the house before we committed to renting and he had a wealth of information only a local would know. He is a charming gentleman who enjoys sharing his love of life as well as his home and was always available to answer questions.
Upon entering the house we immediately felt at home, as it had many of the small amenities that we didn’t or could not bring with us; umbrellas, beach necessities, kitchen gadgets and supplies, family games, etc. And the master bedroom and bath are beyond belief. It was truly a memorable experience.
My girlfriends and I just returned from an amazing weekend in Newport. When we arrived in Newport we were greeted by John and given a thorough tour of the home. John was incredibly welcoming and great to work with throughout the entire process of renting the home. As soon as we arrived at the house we knew it was going to be the perfect place with the beautiful porches,comfortable bedrooms and more than enough space for us. We all enjoyed drinking our coffee on the back porch in the morning and slept so comfortably in the beds at night. The house was conveniently located and we were able to easily walk into town and enjoy all that Newport has to offer.
Overall, we had such a memorable and perfect weekend staying at the house and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Newport.
We miss it already and can't wait to go back.
Newport is famous for its summer season. It is home to the remarkable Bellevue Avenue mansions, the Tennis Hall of Fame, and the Classical, Jazz, and Folk Music Festivals, It has a variety of great Atlantic beaches, all close by. Sports on offer include swimming, sailing, surfing, wind and kite surfing, golf, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and tennis.
A charming, old colonial town with narrow, cobblestoned streets, Newport is ideal for sightseeing and shopping. Many of the attractions, notably the restaurants, pubs, shops, and the harbor, are within walking distance of the house. Not surprisingly, seaford--fresh and varied--is the leading gastronomic specialty, but there is also an abundance of locally produced meat, fruit, and vegetables available at colorful farmers' markets..
