Occupancy. Ten people is the absolute maximum.

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 master bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and another bathroom has a steam shower. The top floor has two bedrooms( (two double beds and two singles) and a shared bathroom, ideal for children and young people. The fully finished and furnished basement, with a double bed and a separate seating area, is great for watching sports and movies. The house has three flat-screen TVs (library/master bedroom/basement), Wifi throughout, and chairs, towels, and kids' surf boards for the beach. Relax on the spacious front and back porches with a barbecue grill for summer dining.

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.

A WONDERFUL VENUE FOR A FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
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.

Girls Weekend in Newport

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great women's getaway!!

Great women's getaway!!
  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for a girls getaway. It was perfect for us. We were able to walk comfortably in and out of Newport for shopping and dining. The house was wonderful, impeccably maintained, with any possible amenity you could need. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds and linens. The bathrooms were fabulous with all kinds of relaxing showers and tubs. The living areas were large and made it easy to spread out in. If you are readers, this is your paradise, as they had available any/all types of books! The kitchen made it easy to use with all conveniences at your finger tips, right down to choices of wine:) There were both front and back porches and even though the weather did not cooperate, we still had breakfast outside.
John, the owner, could not have been nicer or more helpful. We have already asked him to reserve the house for next year!!
I definitely would recommend this property!!!!

Fascinating house and service!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a crew of 10 people stay at the house. John was a very nice, friendly, and flexible person, and I could tell that from our conversations even prior to our stay. The house was just absolutely fascinating. Everything that we needed for our three-day stay was there, including the barbeque grill, which we used twice. All of the bedrooms were excellent, especially the master bedroom where my wife and I had the privilege of staying. John introduced us to all of the rooms at check-in, which was also very helpful. He also called in a few times to see whether everything was okay. All in all, the crew enjoyed every aspect of the house, and if we were to come again, we would definitely choose this house again.

Newport Wedding

  • 5 of 5
Our son's wedding was in Newport and we needed a house to accommodate our son and his 4 groomsmen, as well as 4 other family members. The house was perfect for our needs with its 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with gadgets, dinnerware, cookware and modern conveniences. John, thanks so much for everything. We are so very happy we found your house listed on VRBO.

Awesome house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 6 rented this house for a long weekend. The house is in the PERFECT location. We walked everywhere; bars and restaurants on Broadway and Thames are an easy walk. We walked to the Tennis Hall of Fame, the Cliff Walk, breakfast...you name it we were able to walk there. The house itself is charming, large, but also updated with a modern kitchen, DirecTV, etc.

If you're heading to Newport and want a great experience, rent this house.

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..
